Tis the season…from Christmas, to New Year’s Eve straight through to Valentine’s Day she may be anxiously awaiting “The Ring”. Those are the top three dates when she will be anticipating the possibility of “The Ring”. You are also treading the waters of expectation around your anniversary and her birthday – No matter if she says she’s not that kind of girl, she swears she doesn’t need it or want it, EVEN if you’ve agreed on not going in that direction anytime soon – I personally guarantee from approx. 3 months into the relationship on – it crosses at least a teeny-tiny portion of her mind now and then AND “The Ring” industry knows this. Notice the amped up ads they will keep churning out through the aforementioned end of the season – Valentines day. Good luck.
1. A ring is always a nice gift – you don’t have to propose à la ABC’s Bachelor.
2. There is a Recession going on right now, so you can lean on that to conserve on rock size.
3. Just rent ‘Blood Diamond‘

Long running, low rated CBS television news program 60 Minutes exposes the literal depth and breadth of the Saudi commitment and stronghold on oil production through aggressive, state of the art oil drilling in the Saudi Arabian region known as “The Oil Kingdom”.
In pitch perfect one-on-one interviews with 60 Minute’s Lesley Stahl, Saudi oil minister Ali Al-Naimi reveals they are sitting on over 260 Billion gallons of oil and foresee finding and drilling another 200 Billion.
The highly Americanized industry focused on the mission to produce this oil looks not unlike it’s own western country situated and developed smack in the mid-east. Their center for tracking and operating drilling easily rivals (or bests) Nasa’s control center. In Shaybah just one of their oil fields the facility is built with as much steel as would be in two of San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge.
Despite the awe inducing sites and stats of the endeavor Al-Naimi asserts no intention to maintain an “addiction” on his oil by showcasing it’s abundance and accessibility.
Even at the pace and priority with which these Saudi’s are achieving oil production one of their own estimates of supply capabilities is only 50 years. source

Tanya Robertson, mother of NFL Fullback Brian Urlacher’s 3-year-old son made public claims this week that Urlacher is guilty of imposing gender-confusion on the boy by allowing him to have painted toenails and putting him in pink pull-ups.
The “mother” asserts to Urlacher that if the child is gay – she will blame him. Urlacher’s reply to that is, “I don’t care if he’s gay. I’ll love him either way.”
As Chicago Tribune reporter David Haugh puts it, sounds like “price gouging” – agreed. Perhaps Robertson is seeking to wield this ruckus as a harassment tool in a child support case – she surely needs funds to pay off the $11 Million judgement against her for bringing a false rape charge against dancer Michael Flatley.
