It's a good omen.

You know your day is off to a good start when you get your first good cackle of the morning by clicking over to CNN.com to be greeted with the headline: Dog goes berserk, destroys Elvis' teddy bear.

Don't ask me why, but for some reason that just completely kicked over my giggle box. *Snicker*

$75,000 for a dead guy's teddy bear? Duh?

Question of the day: Did the dog show good taste, or did the event leave a bad taste in his mouth?

We got a goog giggle out if it this morning, too. It's something that a Dachshund would do, but a well-trained Nazi Attack Dog?

That's one hella expensive chew toy. I believe I'da just stuck with the traditional rawhide bone.

Someone should have a competition for alternate lyrics to the Elvis hit "Teddy Bear" I'm imagining that those old bears were rife with ancient funk from the ghosts of children past: Snotty fingers, earwax, the butter drippings from crumpets. What self-respecting dog could resist?

I'll bet it's just about all the toy's owner can bear - he's probably really torn up over this.

I'm going with phlegmfatale on this one. Having raised a dozen or so German Shepherds and a couple of Dachshunds when younger, I can attest to the fact that nothing excites a dog more than something that reeks. I have seen dogs in ecstasy as they rolled all over a week-dead cat, or enthusiastically chew and eat an entire dry cowpie.

The morning started for me with "India Tries to Chase Monkeys From Trains".

Who will guard the guard dogs themselves?

Hoodia has been recently discovered by North Americans, although it has been used by South African bushman as an appetite suppressant before taking long trips for hundreds of years. It was discovered during a study of indigenous foods by a lab in South Africa, and may represent a great opportunity for the South African economy as well as a diet miracle for many of those who have given up on other weight loss methods. Hoodia itself is a group of stem succulent cactus – like plants, with stalks that look like spiky pickles or sea cucumbers. These plants can grow up to 1m high and flower large strong smelling flowers. The indigenous people who live where these plants come from call the plants Xhoba.

The Hoodia plant is not related to cactus plants, although it does look like a cactus. Eating a cactus plant, however, will not cause you to lose weight or suppress your appetite. The Hoodia species which many people have become interested in is Hoodia Gordonii. There are other Hoodia species, some of which are grown in gardens, but the Gordonii is the one targeted as a weight loss method, and therefore of interest to drug companies and dieters everywhere.

Hoodia has begun to appear on the market as a nutritional supplement, sold as pills which contain small amounts of Hoodia. This is exciting for many people, as a large number of North American people struggle with their weight, and there have been a few studies done which have shown amazing results and Hoodia users in the study lost weight easily without feeling hungry at all. In a set of clinical trials, obese people were given Hoodia, and instructed not to do anything but eat, read, or watch TV. They still lowered their calorie intake and lost weight. This has caused a great deal of excitement and prompted a number of companies to produce nutritional supplements which they say contain Hoodia. It has also become more popular after rumors that TV actresses were eating Hoodia to stave off weight gain.
