-----2011. Filming will start on a biopic with Sacha Baron Cohen as Freddie Mercury. I just do not see this as being able to be done well. I hope that Mr. Cohen does not do his own vocals....whether he would be good at them or not-it reminds me of La Bamba where many people now think of sounds other than the real Ritchie Valens.

-----2011. Six Flags Amusement Parks 50th Anniversary Celebration. Six Flags Amusement Parks Corporation is the 4th most popular in terms of attendance.

-----February 19, 2011. American Cancer Society Cattle Barons' Ball. The theme this year is "Caribbean Cowboy."

I would love to have a few chickens- but I'm pretty sure the neighbors would disapprove.


I very much want to have chickens,too. They are actually illegal in the city I live...due to fears about swine flu and people not wanting livestock (read that last part as snottiness because any animal you eat could be considered livestock by them-including fish).

Chickens are quiet as long as you don't have a rooster. They don't take up much space and I know I would be very good about keeping them super-clean. Some people actually hide their chickens and their are tips about how to do this on the internet (of course, I won't go this route...since it is still illegal where I live).

One city not that far away was briefly considering letting backyard chickens become I am hoping that will happen here. There are many cities around us that do allow one to legally have chickens (but I have never seen anyone exercise that allowance). I guess that things here have to be advocated by a trend-setting city before the majority approves of them. Really my community reminds me of some livestock animals.....sheep.
