Bush's Legacy

As Bush's presidency comes to a close I'm sure we are going to be seeing more and more summations of his time in office.  I personally am really excited for a year or two from now when his autobiography comes out.  I think the media, despite whether or not you (or they) agree with Bush's decisions, convictions and policies, has painted a very limited portrait of a rather interesting figure.
I found this brief article really interesting and thought I'd point it out to any of you who would be interested.

Book Review: Only Nuns Change Habits Overnight

I received this book in the mail this week. And despite it's pink cover I gave it a quick read. That's right...I'm not afraid of a little pink. Just don't think it makes my manly skin tone, so I refuse to wear it on that basis alone.
Okay that's a lie. I really don't like pink. Maybe it's a reaction to childhood memories of Pepto-Bismol.
I digress.
I thought the title was clear so I agreed to read and review this one.
Let's see...how could I review this for you. I hate reviews that try too hard to sell a book. You either trust me and you are in search of a book like this. Or you trust me and you are not in search of a book like this.
Seriously...who wouldn't trust me. I know what's good.
Also a review should tell you everything in the book.
So I need to use words that sell without selling and yet are succinct.
So I'll review this book by saying this:
1. It's good.
2. It's easy to read.
3. It's easy to identify the 52 Amazing Ways to Master the Art of Personal Change she suggest, based on how they formatted the book.
4. It's a quick read.
5. It's a short read...coming in just under 200 pages.
6. It's written primarily for women, but confident men will appreciate it to.
7. It's easy to put into practice.
8. It's got great questions at the end of each chapter.
9. It's entertaining.
10. It's a witty title. (okay I just wanted to have a 10th point)

Seriously if you are looking for some help to make a change in any area of your life go buy this book.

NFL Playoffs: Week 1 Predictions

I believe all the road teams are favored this week, something that isn't typical.  But I always believe in at least one upset.  That being said, here are my week 1 predictions:
Indianapolis at San Diego
San Diego has caught fire recently.  Indianapolis is winning despite...well...despite everything.  I don't think they will go very far, but I'm picking San Diego in this matchup.
Baltimore at Miami
Baltimore is playing tough football.  Miami is a pleasant surprise to these playoffs.  But Miami's season should end this weekend.
Philadelphia at Minnesota
This is a tough game to call.  Minnesota is got a great ground game, but without a solid passing game will they be shut down by Philadelphia?  Can Philadelphia put together to consistent good weeks of football.  I always doubt McNabb.  Minnesota runs Peterson to a win.
Atlanta at Arizona
Atlanta is a solid team, both on offense and defense.  And they have a better running game than Arizona.  Arizona despite host their first playoff game in a long time won't have enough in their tank to hold off Atlanta.  But it's hard to cheer against Kurt Warner.
