I'm looking for a special man said this pretty woman sitting next to me at a Rotary District Staff Dinner Meeting. Not just any man, but someone who is mature, likes to hike or go on long walks and most of the things that I do said Karla Cino. A couch potato .. ugh .. no!

It used to be that the loser was the sorriest of all characters in the movie universe. See: "Back to the Future's" George McFly, Cameron from "Ferris Bueller's Day Off," Anthony Michael Hall.
Then along came a guy named Napoleon Dynamite, and he transformed the nerd into the coolest guy around, an alternative Homecoming King of sorts.

Jack Black is fun-loving and round and even a little grisly, so it makes perfect sense that his animated persona would be a panda.
A "Kung Fu Panda" to be exact.
In this animated tale, Black lends his voice to Po, a clumsy and overweight bear who loves snacking yet longs to be an elite kung fu fighter.

Q: There is a lone window in the small hallway that connects our entryway to the family room. I don't know whether to cover it with curtains so it kind of disappears, or to play it up, since it is the only architectural feature in the hallway. What do you think?
A: I think all windows are precious - for the light they bring into your life, yes, and also for the visual interest they can add to any room.
You can enhance that effect with an imaginative choice of coverings. Witness the window in the photo we show here.

LOOK IT UP
The Scripps National Spelling Bee concluded on May 30, and children again did the amazing when it comes to spelling words that are notoriously convulated or convaluted or - %$#%!! - really, really tough. Not only is it compelling theater seeing young children do something intellectually challenging (versus playing Wii), it's an apt time for adults to reflect on their own spelling abilities.

When both the outdoor temperature and humidity are high anyone can find the weather stifling. However, older people suffering from diabetes or heart disease and those suffering from mild dementia may be at special risk. Their medications may leave them increasingly vulnerable to heat exhaustion.

Cadillacs generally aren't known for their lively driving experience, but that's what I was getting on a backcountry run in a loaded CTS with the direct-injection V-6 and six-speed automatic.
The new CTS is an example of what's going well at General Motors. The styling is contemporary, and the quality of construction and choice of interior materials surpass those of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class but aren't quite as obsessive as Lexus.

Well, you can also lick the heat with color - take a few of your favorite summer fashion basics and put them together in a whole new way.
