Sen. Mitchell meet Rambo.

Well I think we can put the steroids controversy to rest. Sylvester Stallone has calmed my fears. I never knew how smart Sly was.

NEW YORK - Sylvester Stallone says he used human growth hormone to get buff for the new "Rambo" movie, and defends its use.

"HGH (human growth hormone) is nothing," the 61-year-old actor tells Time magazine in its Feb. 4 issue. "Anyone who calls it a steroid is grossly misinformed."
Because it is nearly undetectable, HGH has become a substance of great concern in major league baseball and other sports battling allegations of rampant doping.
"Testosterone to me is so important for a sense of well-being when you get older," he says. "Everyone over 40 years old would be wise to investigate it because it increases the quality of your life. Mark my words. In 10 years it will be over the counter."
Stallone directed and co-wrote the new "Rambo" movie, which arrived in theaters Friday.

Recipe for waste

I enjoy food. Granted I'm picky and you'd call me a meat and potatoes kind of guy.

I like watching the Food Network, restaurant reviews, etc. The other day I was thinking when these chefs are preparing their dishes they always toss these unfinished portions to the side.

Now in our world as it is with hunger in our country and other countries on the globe isn't this a shameful waste of food? The children or adults of Darfur aren't going to be eating lobster bisque with asparagus filled puff pastry but waste is waste and somehow this bugs me.
