Top Gear: If Clarkson Gets Sacked

… who would I like to see take the wheel? Rowan Atkinson could be simultaneously funny, competent in a serious car, and terrified if stuck in the passenger seat next to The Stig. Or Sabine Schmitz, a German driver-presenter who's appeared on the show, is sarcastically funny and has the chops to leave the old boys behind.

Distant third: Tanner Foust, the Top Gear America driver, who would drive the English insane with his driving trucks but just isn't funny enough. He was on the show recently driving a rally car extremely well, but not saying very much and staying well out of the banter-channel.



Who could replace Jeremy Clarkson on Top Gear?
Jodie Kidd, Chris Evans, Stephen Fry and even Alan Partridge have all been touted as possible new hosts. But only one star has what it takes …

Sugar: They Put That Shit In Everything

It can be hard to keep track of the carbs you consume, yet it's got to be done if you're trying to regulate your blood sugar through diet (and exercise).

It's even harder when the sugar carbs are hidden or part of another ingredient that can be added mindlessly, like teriyaki sauce, hoisin sauce, or flavored coffee creamer.

If you're aware of the extra carbs in that lemonade, and balance them with lower-carb choices throughout your day, you can keep yourself pretty well-regulated.

But if you're diabetic and don't care, or assume "the drugs will fix it," or are trying to commit slow suicide, by all means have that delicious full rack of ribs dripping with thick BBQ sauce. And have a couple of glasses of lemonade and a side of cornbread while you're at it.

This anecdote is based on the experience of watching a family member make poor food choices, over and over, at shared meals. It's another reason my husband and I ride in #TourdeCure.

So Confused

Why isn't Ted Cruz a Cuban the way Obama is a Kenyan? Is Canada the 51st state, right after Hawaii?

The birthers really need to get their story straight. Also, the Supreme Court better define "natural-born" already.



Is Ted Cruz Allowed To Run Since He Was Born In Canada?
Texas Sen. Ted Cruz became the first major candidate to declare for president, but some question whether he’s eligible since he was born in Canada. Legal scholars, though, believe he can.

Why Is Insulin So Expensive In The US?? WHY? #diabetessucks

Poor people can't afford it. Other countries have cheaper forms of insulin, why can't we? Because Big Pharma can claim newer is better, while old production methods might not be as profitable or marketable to as many people.

I'm not insulin dependent, but still I'm outraged.



Why Is Insulin So Expensive In The U.S.?
The hormone that controls blood sugar among diabetics is one of the oldest medicines used today. But more than 90 years after its discovery, a low-cost version is no longer available in the U.S.
