It seems every damned thing you do nowadays causes cancer. The latest study comes from Spanish researchers and reports that women who drink one to two drinks a day of any alcoholic beverage run a ten percent (10%) higher risk of breast cancer. Women who drink three alcohol drinks per day run a thirty percent (30%) higher risk of breast cancer. I am not an alarmist, but I thought I would pass this information on to my female readers, who are all sexy and beautiful (how do you like that for a nice kiss-up).
That said, I'm a little tired of hearing all the things that cause cancer. If you don't die from cancer, your heart will quit on you. If that doesn't get you, there's other diseases patiently waiting in line to do you in. Last, but not least, if you don't drink, smoke, or have sex all your life (and assuming that you're not brain dead), you're probably going to step in front of a Mack truck. Bottom line, sooner or later, you're outta here !
Odds and Ends: Michael Vick has a new problem. He has tested positive for marijuana use. Talk about your "Dog Day Afternoon" ! Paris Hilton will be competing with Hope and Crosby soon 'cause she's "Off On The Road To Rwanda". It seems Ms. Hilton has decided to adopt a black child and is visiting several sites there. That's hot and this could really get interesting.
More from Stephen Wright: Everyone has a photographic memory, some just don't have film. Dancing is a perpendicular expression of a horizontal desire. Boycott shampoo, demand real poo. If at first you don't succeed, destroy all evidence that you tried. Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it. The colder the X-ray table, the more of your body is required to be on it.
The Pictures: A menage of some of my favorites, including one of Indigo's pictures I "borrowed", some photoshop pictures featuring "animal rocks", a comfort dog in the September 11 bombings, and the seven foot 350 pound woman, who still fascinates me (I'll just need a step-ladder and a whip). Fidel Castro is featured in "A Weekend at Bernies" spoof. Of course, I have to include a bloody mary for my pal, Jackie, who like myself, is being plagued with car problems this week.

The Hits Just Keep On Coming: You know Your Getting Old When...
Your friend compliments you on your alligator shoes and you're barefoot. You don't care where your spouse goes as long as you don't have to go. You are cautioned to slow down from your doctor rather than the police. A young woman catches your fancy and your pacemaker opens the garage door. Getting a little action means that you fiber diet is starting to work. An all-nighter means that you didn't have to get up in the middle of the night to pee. Getting lucky means you were able to find your car in the parking lot.
That's it for today my little mermaids. More tomorrow.
