Hudson River Rowing



I just wanted to share some rowing pictures because I haven't been in a very writerly mood lately.






This picture was taken on an earlier excursion to Maxwell House Beach (also known to Pier 40 folk as Playa de Hoboken). We found this abandoned boat that we wanted to take back with us, but there was a hole. Still, it was a cool looking boat.

Butters & Gob



About two weeks ago, Josh and I decided to buy a guinea pig. (We originally wanted a bunny, but bunnies are expensive and require more attention; guinea pigs are more low-maintaince.) We headed over to PETCO and picked out a light brown and white female guinea pig. We named her Butters; the name fits, despite not being gender-appropriate. The following week, we decided that Butters needed a friend, so we went back to the store and brought home Gob, a dark-brown-with-white-splotches guinea pig. They get along wonderfully. Look at their adorableness.

Living alone is a difficult thing for the woman like Brooke Hogan's mother Linda Hogan.

Talkin' Politics with a Six-Year-Old

While walking to Clinton Hill during a recent babysitting-adventure, Claire, Rob's six-year-old daughter, we passed by a brownstone with a "Support Obama" flyer in the window, complete with his silhouette.

Claire, being the weirdly-observant girl she is, noticed it. "They like Obama," she said. I looked at the window and agreed with her.

"Who do you like?" she went on to ask.

"Obama," I answered. Figuring it couldn't hurt, I asked her, "What about you?"

"I like Obama," she said. It made sense because Rob was supporting Obama too.

Deciding to go further with this, I said to Claire: "Did you know Hilary Clinton dropped out of the race? So now only Obama's left and he's running against John McCain."

Claire smiled and said, "Good." She paused.

"Do you want to know something really funny?" Claire asked with a smile. I nodded.

"There's a boy in school and he couldn't remember McCain's name, so he said 'you know, that really old president!'" she said, laughing.

Madonna and Guy Ritchie Divorce Nears

Err..r., Kabbalah marriage counsellings didn't work, Madonna and Guy Ritchie divorce is to the point that will inevitably take place. According to Daily Mirror, the Material Girl Madonna, 49, and Guy Ritchie, 39, have been living virtually separate lives in their £6million London mansion for months and are discussing a split. The newspaper further pointed out that the couple will probably make a formal/divorce announcement when Madonna ends her 2008 Sticky and Sweet Tour, in Mexico on November 29.

"Although the marriage is coming to an end, they don't want to say anything until the tour is over. They live like brother and sister rather than husband and wife and thought it best to call it a day. There's been a lot of speculation about them having furious rows all the time, none more so than because of the children. But they have just grown apart. They've decided they're better off as friends. It's sad, but they're determined to keep it amicable." A source was quoted as saying.

Since his divorce with wife Juanita Vanoy in the end of 2006, we heard nothing of Michael Jordan's affairs with other women except for Karla Knafel and Lisa Miceli. But now it seems that the NBA great is dating a lady named Yvette Prieto (pictures). According to reports, Michael Jordan was spotted having dinner together with Yvette Prieto at Michael's Genuine Food and Drink at the night of June 19 in Miami. The newspaper called Yvette Prieto as Michael Jordan's girlfriend, but did not provide any details or a photo about Prieto. Beleow is the newspapers item on Michael Jordan and Yvette Prieto dining:

Michael Jordan had dinner at Michael's Genuine Food and Drink Thursday night with his girlfriend, Yvette Prieto, who requested a private table for the two. They drank bottled water; he had filet of mutton snapper and she had steak au poivre. At the end of their meal, several guests bombarded the basketball giant for autographs. The couple left before dessert but not before some eager young women dining in the courtyard managed to pose with Jordan for photos.

If you run across a webpage where has information on Yvette Prieto, we appreciate you to provide a link in the comments below. :-)

Amy Winehouse Emphysema --It's terrible! Troubled Amy Winehouse has been diagnosed with the lung condition emphysema, her father Mitch Winehouse told to the Sunday Mirror.

"The doctors have told her if she goes back to smoking drugs it won't just ruin her voice, it will kill her. The doctors have said that if she had continued the way she was going she could have ended up an invalid -- she wouldn't have been able to breathe."

"She's got emphysema. It's in its early stages, but had it gone on for another month they painted a very vivid picture of her sitting there like an old person with a mask on her face struggling to breathe.

"With smoking the crack cocaine and the cigarettes, her lungs are all gunked up. There are nodules around the chest and dark marks. She's got 70 percent lung capacity."

"If she doesn't go back to drugs, then she can lead this magnificent life," he said. "We are praying that that's what Amy really wants. She seems resolute."

Amy, it's time for you to say bye-bye for the drugs, or you will die soon.
