Colbie Caillat sang the National Anthem at a NFL game a couple weeks ago and some people are now saying that it deserves to be in the top 10 worst sports national anthems ever!!
That’s a bit much! One site even went as far as saying that one should not ” swing your hips like that while singing our nation’s national anthem… she needs to realize that she’s not performing at a concert.”
Whatever! I actually like this version and would listen to it as a song!

Yesterday, I’ve accomplished the scariest thing I’ve ever had to do! I rappelled off the 18th floor of a hotel for charity!
I knew what i was getting into. Having worked with children with disabilities, I knew about Easter Seals and how they helped those families in need. So, I definitely wanted to be a Super Hero for the day and do this. Raising 1540$ was the easy part… going over the ledge was the scariest thing ever!!
Lucky me, I will always remember that I was about to cry leaning over that building as the Ottawa Citizen caught it all on tape! I had NO CLUE!!
Our own video will be up soon, with content from the camera I taped to my helmet — now that will be priceless!

It looks like Michael Bublé is the latest celeb to have contracted Bieber Fever, after an image of him dressed as Justin Bieber has emerged!
Donning a blue hoody, purple t-shirt and Bieber’s trademark hair-do for his new video Hollywood, Bublé can be seen in this photo doing his best Bieber impression as he slouches on an armchair!

As well as Bieber, Bublé also transforms into Hollywood legends Clint Eastwood and James Dean for the video.

“The video is about celebrity culture, people’s dreams about fame and what can go with it. You can see what fun I had playing the characters.”

I like his new single Hollywood! What do you think of it?

The price of gold hit record levels this week, creeping close to US$1,300 per ounce!!
By consequence, many of you might be tempted to dig into your jewelry boxes and cash in with companies that deal in scrap gold. Sure, they’ll give you cash for your gold, but how to make sure you’re getting the money you deserve?
Here are a few things you should keep in mind before turning grandma’s antique ring into quick money:
1) precious gems or detailed engraving aren’t taken into account at most businesses offering money for gold. In the buyers eyes, it’s scrap metal — so for truly valuable items, you might be better off dealing with a reputable estate sale or auction.
2) good buyers should be up front about their per-gram rate. You, in turn, should feel free to shop around, and be sure to ask questions — whether a business is properly licensed, for example, or how long it’s been in operation. You should also get a receipt for any gold left with a business. Basically, find a company that you can trust.
3) ‘Gold parties’ (imagine a Tupperware party, except with gold-hawking friends meeting a prospective buyer) are picking up in popularity. So are companies that let people send off their gold by mail and get a cheque in return. But not all such operations are legit, so you should check out the background of a company before making any deals. 1-800-636-9536 is a number you can call to inquire about complaints about jewellery businesses– do it!
Industry expects are even saying that “if you’re going to sell it, now is the time to do it” BUT so long as you do your homework first!
