How to Lose and Influence Friends

How to lose and influence friends .... If you don't want people stepping on your doormat, turn it into something people don't want to step on - such as everyone's worst enemy, the scale. Add insult to injury by adjusting the mechanism so that it adds 20 pounds or so to their actual weight.

Lady in the Water: 1947

Fabulous vintage photo. A model floating in the water at Weeki Wachee Spring, Florida. The image by fashion photographer Toni Frissell was published in Harper's Bazaar in December 1947. New photo for me, but it has been used evidently for book covers and album covers over the years.

Usher Has No Problem With Endurance - Carerra's Style

The prestigious sunglass brand Carrera; famous for their fashion and sporty eyewear, appear in Usher's latest single “Hey Daddy (Daddy’s Home)”. In the video, Usher wearing the 80's inspired "Endurance" style sunglasses by Carrerra, are 80's style retro with their recognizable drop shape.

Usher Raymond IV (his real name) was born in Dallas, and has sold more than 40 million records worldwide since his first album “Usher” was released in 1994. He has won several Grammy Awards and performed duets with Sean Combs, Beyonce and Will.I.Am, to name a few. In addition, he has signed young, new talent 15 year old Justin Bieber. Bieber started singing just three years ago. He was discovered on YouTube after posting videos from a local singing competition. Bieber's big break came when he met Usher by chance. He auditioned and was offered a recording contract by Island Def Jam's L.A. Reid. All signs are looking up and positive for Usher... perhaps Usher has the next Jesse McCartney on his hands.

With his song, “Hey Daddy (Daddy’s Home)”, from his new CD, Usher is already outperforming American classics in the charts. “Raymond Vs. Raymond”, will be available on-line and in the best CD stores by March.
The music video “Hey Daddy (Daddy’s Home)”, directed by Chris Robinson, shows the life of the R&B Singer, businessman and artist all in one, dedicating time to his brand, his music and his reversals. The video also shows the artist, considered as an American sex-symbol by the people, trying to preserve his private life and give his faithful girlfriend all the attention she needs.

A famous failure, the Hula burger. Not everything Ray Kroc touched was golden, or arched. This burger is so easy and good you will forget the story of how the founder of McDonald's tried to come up with a meatless meal for those who observe Lent. The Fillet-o-Fish was the winner in the market place.
