Beer Drinking Bride Controversy

In New Zealand, a picture of a contestant at the Bride of the Year competition, raised a large controversy.

Thirty-four women were competing, but only one of them was captured drinking a beer.

To some this was unbecoming of a bride. The bride in question, Katrina Hayman, replied that no one would have cared if she had it been drinking a glass of wine.

"I mean that is just the type of person I am. I don't like to portray myself as someone I am not. A lot of females drink beer and it's just I felt more comfortable having a beer than having a wine."

As of time of this posting, an online poll showed that 62.9% saw no problem with a bride drinking beer, 13.3% said it was tacky, whilst 23.8% said it was ok, but that it should be out of a fancy glass.

Hayman ended up not winning the contest.

Preview: Men in Black 3

Black suits coming, once again, cause good guys wear black. Men in Black III is almost here.

In the third part of the series, Agent K (Tommy Lee Jones) disappears and, without his presence, an alien invasion is coming.

Agent J (Will Smith) finds himself the only one remembering K as having been alive since 1969, so he goes back in time to save young K (Josh Brolin) from being assassinated.

With only twenty-four hours to accomplish the mission of saving K, and restoring the timeline to save earth, the movie should be fast paced.

Expect the same comical lines and action as were in the first two movies.

Men in Black III hits American theaters this Friday, May 25.


Remembering: Lindbergh and The Spirit of St. Louis

A challenge had been placed, to be the first to fly non stop between New York and Paris, and to do so alone.

The prize of $25,000 drew many famous pilots from across America and Europe.

One of the pilots to join was a relatively unknown air mail pilot, Charles Lindbergh.

Lindbergh commissioned a small monoplane, which had designed and then named after the city of St. Louis, who had been his chief sponsor.

On May 20, 1927, Lindbergh and The Spirit of St. Louis took off, barely making it off the ground due to all the weight of gas cans that it was carrying.

His main challenge being staying awake, Lindbergh flew 3,610 miles in thirty-three and a half hours, and won the prize, becoming an international celebrity.
