Kashi-not-so-lean

Turns out Kashi really isn’t all natural. The recently filed class-action lawsuit may determine that Kellogs products aren’t as GREEAAT as they would want you to thin.

Facebook to Acquire Instagram

$1billion should be enough to capture the full picture of what Instagram can offer to facebook users. I think this was a good move for both.

Cuban youth playing baseball.
During his time in Cuba, Ernest Hemingway organized and funded a Little League team for his son, Gregory (“Gigi”), and the boys in his Havana neighborhood. The team started as a way to occupy Gregory’s time during the summer, but they soon received official uniforms and the name, “The Gigi Stars.” The literary great created a baseball diamond in the backyard of his Cuban home, and he acted as both a pitcher and a batter for the team.

#DNC2012 You Going?

The Democratic National Convention is Charlotte, NC is 150 days away! You going? 

I think Mario Teran has a sound vision to represent the Massachusetts 7th Congressional District at the Convention. Powerful mind. Powerful works.

Play Ball (while celebrating diversity)

Today is opening day for baseball in America. The Boston Red Sox play the Detroit Tigers at Comerica Park in Detroit. Irony: the Red Sox were the last team in the major leagues to integrate the roster with black players. The tigers were the second to last.

I Would Take a Bulleit For You

This stuff is great. Gents, its time to put away the Jim Beam and make Mint Julep’s with the good stuff this spring. Its rye taste is “spicy and complex, with a signature smooth finish”. You will love the taste - so much you would take a Bulleit for it.
