Interesting Stuff

If you haven't heard, the two miners trapped underground in Australia, have now been freed. Can you imagine the courage and internal strength it took for those two to make it through?
I read this interesting article in Vanity Fair magazine (one of my airport purchases), about MySpace. I don't have a page on MySpace. Those of you that do - what do you love about it?
You can see the World's Most Beautiful People 2006 at People magazine. Wonder what it does to someone to be voted that - do they walk around thinking they have to maintain a certain standard of looks because they've officially been voted 'beautiful'?

And staying with lists, check out Time magazine's list of the 100 People Who Shape Our World. Do you agree with their list? Any others you'd like to add?

Nalini.. I heard about the Aussies.. Yahoo!... and they were in really good shape physically and emotionally. :-)

I was thinking about the World's Most Beautiful People and I wondered how much it would hurt to discover the first wrinkle on a perfect face which had been chosen as one of the most beautiful. I think it would hurt more to lose that beauty than to be ordinary looking in the first place.

Hi Cynthia - yes, wasn't that great? I was so hoping they'd get out safe and sound.

Josie - excellent point. Maybe that's why cosmetic surgery is so big in Hollywood - people desperately trying to remain beautiful. But I guess that's part of the whole industry.
