Aaron Has Another New Girlfriend?
Reports say that the tabloids have been staking out Aaron?s apartment in his hometown, and that he been secretly seeing someone. Her name is Julie Ross, she?s a 23-year-old kindergarten teacher, and they?ve know each other for about a year. The tabloids say she arrived at his apartment last Thursday at 11:30pm and snuck out the next morning at 6:20am. I also hear that Aaron had been trying to get with her since they met, but she was in a relationship, and always turned him down. Then a month ago, they ran into each other at a local bar. Of course, by then, Aaron became this big star, and she dumped her boyfriend of 4 years and went home with Aaron. They?ve been seeing each other a few nights a week since then, and Aaron?s not denying it. When they reached him for a comment, Aaron simply said that ?Yes it?s true, Julie stayed at my apartment last night."

Fruit SMASH another online game by Electrotank.
It's a lot like Bejeweled, where you clear the board when you get three in a row, but this game makes you click on each adjoining fruit. No click and drag online.

It'll waste a few minutes if you have the time.

Franklin Brass Safety First 24" Safety Grab Bar
I'm a little late in posting today since I had to go out and buy a grab bar and install it at my mother-in-law's apartment downstairs.

The installation seemed straight forward. All you needed to do was to drill six 1/4" holes in the wall, insert plastic anchors in the holes and then screw in the Grab Bar with the provided screws.

After drilling the holes, I saw that I only had five anchors! That's not right.

I found an extra one, down in the basement, and the bar is now securely fastened to the wall.

I called the company and told them that my package was missing an anchor. They said they'd inform shipping.

I did my part to help improve the safety of people who buy these safety bars.

When I took a close look at the package to find the phone number, I read:
IMPORTANT-CAUTION: Grab bars are safety supports only when installed properly and securely. Toggle bolts are recommended for plaster or dry wall installation
Hmm. Don't you think they could have put those IMPORTANT instructions ABOVE the installation instructions?

And why don't they just supply toggle bolts to start with.

Oops. Gotta go, just heard a big crash downstairs!

Just kidding.

TV Barn - Brady Bunch In The White House.
"In an entirely new installment of the cult feature franchise, the blissfully ignorant Bradys are propelled into the national spotlight as America's First Family. ... When Bobby finds a lost lottery ticket worth $67 million, Mike decides that the only Brady thing to do is try and return it to its rightful owner. Mike's honesty is rewarded by an unscrupulous President of the United States who needs to add an ethical Vice President candidate" ... blah blah blah ..."Mike suddenly finds himself taking the Oath of Office and moving himself and his family from their split-level ranch house to 1600 Pennsylvania" ... blah blah blah ... "Greg falls for an attractive intern, Jan is haunted by the disembodied voice of Abraham Lincoln" (why does that sound like an old "SNL" sketch?) "and Cindy learns that she shouldn't tattle on her family to reporters."

That airs on November 29th on Fox. Tellingly, that's two days AFTER sweeps.
