Before 2007, ask a woman "Who is Jenny McCarthy?" and she may not have been able to tell you. If you would ask a man, you could have gotten an answer of former Playboy Playmate, former host of MTV shows and guest appearances on a variety of shows. Jenny was not known for her “smarts”, but instead her physical attributes.

As a life-time shopper at the Valley Plaza Shopping Center, I have a number of fond memories. As a child, I remember the the toy section of Newberry's being used as a way to point my parents on the right track for upcoming birthdays and the few times my dad broke-down and said "yes" to a soda at the Newberry's diner. Sitting at that chrome bar...wow, what a memory! As a young teenager, I would beg for a nickel to play a the Four Kings pinball game in Newberry's while my parents shopped; and a few years later a quarter to play Joust or Tron in the mall hallway near the restrooms.Oct 07,
Saturday Night Live's opening scene Saturday night was a VP Debate spoof. It's funny and I laughed from beginning to end. I should probably disclose, though I can't imagine it is a secret, that I'm a Christian who has very conservative Republican views and, of course, view life through that lens. I woke up this [Saturday] morning and instantly pulled up the SNL web site to watch Tina Fey and crew poke fun at Sarah Palin and, ultimately, me. Why? Because it is funny! Because it's a spoof. The first spoof two weeks ago with Hilary Clinton was hilarious. The Couric-Interview Spoof was equally funny. Honestly, if it is funny (and not crude), then I can definitely laugh and enjoy it.
