    ...got their money's worth yesterday with all of the wipe-outs.  Lots of good footage of those.  

    According to the RM News, it's one big party

    That there are celebrities or world-class athletes in Aspen should surprise no one.

    But fans of the Winter X Games say the five-day event that started Wednesday and ends Sunday is different. It's like the athletes are throwing a party, and everyone's invited.

    In the PlayStation3 tent, you could even take on the likes of snowboarder Tanner Hall - tied with White going into these games for the most Winter X gold medals - or superpipe skier Sarah Burke in a game of Little Big World.

    Admission to the games, sponsored and broadcast by ESPN, is free. So is parking. And if you're a little low on cash, there's an endless supply of free pizza rolls at the Totino's pizza tent.

    the Miss America pagent on TLC...I know, I'm beyond redemption.  Anyway, Miss America is the one with the talent portion.  Miss Hawaii just blew all the other contestants off the stage with her traditional dance.  Wow.

    I am always trying to find more thoughtful sites that consider themselves conservative to see how other people I might enjoy hanging out with (intelligent people- I am a liberal snob like that), but disagree with.   Anyways, here are the sites.  If is is not okay to put these up Jeralyn please delete them (I don't mean any disrespect).

    with Netflix Instant Viewing.
    I couldn't finish it. It is among the worst films I've ever suffered partway through. I was stunned to see that it had won some awards. Has anyone else watched it? Liked it? Did it make sense?
