Janine Ferguson's Romantic Incident at the Café, Some Valentine's Day Ideas, and F.L. Jewels' Whispers of My Heart
Huffington Post - about 2 years
"I am a forest, and a night of dark trees: but he who is not afraid of my darkness, will find banks full of roses under my cypresses." ―Friedrich Nietzsche The philosopher's quote from his novel, Thus Spoke Zarathustra, is cited by author F.L. Jewels in her new Whispers of My Heart book of poetry. It's one of several prescient citations from the likes of Shakespeare, Rumi, Gibran, Marquez, and Anais Nin. Each quote prefaces one of Jewels' heartfelt poems, and several meditate on love -- about the fire of love, sharing in a collective love, and how darkness cannot hide love from the soul. But Jewels also warns not to dally when it comes to expressing one's love for another -- be it a relative, significant other or new love -- as her "Fight For Me" poem is prefaced by Buddha's quotation, "The trouble is, you think you have time..." The thing is, he's right, time is ticking. And, given the fast approach of Cupid's arrows and Valentine's Day (February 14, just in case us forgetful ...

Brenda Della Casa: The Good Side of the Bad Boy
Huffington Post - over 3 years
The schoolyard was packed and there were plenty of places to sit, but the truth is that I felt utterly alone. There I was, the new girl in school, and I had not a friend to my name. A friend was just what I needed in this new environment. Suffice it to say that my peers were a little tougher than I was. Strike that, a lot tougher. Just as I walked towards the edge of the yard, I heard a small -- yet confident -- voice jump out from behind me. "Did you wear those polka dots for me?" asked the voice. Was he talking to me? I was wearing polka dots, after all. I turned around. There before me stood the cutest boy I had ever seen. Well, aside from Jordan Knight, of course. But this boy was right there, in the flesh, smiling at me. He stood about 5'6'' with black wavy hair, mocha skin and eyes so big and brown they should have been bestowed upon a puppy, a child, anyone or thing, but a young boy at the ready to use them for evil. "I'm Jasin and I love polka do ...

Elisha Cuthbert: 'Maxim's TV's Most Beautiful Woman!
Just Jared - about 4 years
Elisha Cuthbert shows off her rockin’ body on the dual cover of Maxim magazine’s March 2013 issue, out on newsstands Tuesday (February 19)! Here’s what the 30-year-old actress had to share with the mag: On being named the hottest woman in TV: “To think that one person could be the most beautiful when there’s Kaley Cuoco, Sofía Vergara, Zooey Deschanel? They’re all stunning. I’m not gonna fight anyone about it, though. I’ll accept it with grace. But being on a show with two other beautiful women, this is gonna make going to work very uncomfortable.” On her celebrity crush: “… In interviews everyone is always asked who their celebrity crush is, and I haven’t had one since Jordan Knight from New Kids on the Block, when I was 12. Now I just say Oprah [Winfrey]. I love that woman. She’ll go to someone’s house and bring a huge bucket of oranges she picked from her Santa Barbara home. Oprah, when did you have time to pick two dozen oranges from your garden?” On filming Girl Ne ...

PLEASE Watch Old Navy's Incredible 'Twas The Jordan Knight Before Christmas' Commercial (VIDEO)
MTV News - about 4 years
Santa's been replaced by Jordan Knight in Old Navy's amazing new commercial. OK, Old Navy's ad team deserves a CLIO for their commitment to '90s pop culture nostalgia. First there was the "90210" commercial in which Kelly Taylor chooses JEANS. And who can forget the one with the Backstreet Boys tumbling out of an enormous boom box while peddling jeggings? (P.S. We bought a pair.) And now they're giving us a "Funky Funky Christmas" miracle: "Twas The Jordan Knight Before Christmas" commercial. The commercial opens with crooner Johnny Mathis (legend status -- Google it) telling what is quite frankly a much better version of "Twas The Night Before Christmas." He gets about one sentence into the tale before NKOTB's Jordan Knight bursts into the house looking young enough to be his own SON, rocking red (that suit may be a hat tip to Psy) and flanked by elves. Because Jordan K. feels so Christmasy! Watch Old Navy's "Twas The Jordan Knight Before Christmas" commercial after the jump. ...

Here's Where The Backstreet Boys Have Been Hiding All These Years
Business Insider - over 4 years
Old Navy and CP+B certainly love to revel in '90s nostalgia. And what better way to follow up its Mr. T campaign and commercial featuring the cast of 90210 than to host a mini-Backstreet Boys reunion tour? The new spot (above) for stretchy, skinny jeans—which the five-some unfortunately don't wear in the ad—does reveal important BSB information. Namely, where the boy band has been hiding all of these years: An oversized boom box. We reported earlier that the clothing company also hired the band to perform in Bryant Park during fashion week. Brand manager Michelle DeMartini told Bloomberg in an email that "Our target customer grew up in the ’90s, and that time period conjures an emotional connection. In recent campaigns, we’ve worked with a number of actors and musicians who remind her of that nostalgic decade, such as Mr. T and Jordan Knight, and we’ve gotten really positive feedback.” In case that doesn't make you feel ancient, and you want a real Backstreet Boys throwback, ...

Chad - almost 5 years
Budding young footballers in the Mansfield region are being offered the chance to sign up for a two-year football scholarship with SR Education that could be a stepping-stone for a career in the game. The SR Elite Football Scholarship Programme being launched in Clipstone, in partnership with Clipstone Parish Council, mixes high quality football coaching with the opportunity to study for a range of sport-based qualifications.

"Marriage is almost as old as dirt, and it was defined in the garden between Adam and Eve. One man, one woman for life till death do you part. So I would never attempt to try to redefine marriage.
