Crystalinks Ezine 2007: "Mardi Gras Stories in the News Google
Mardi Gras (French for 'Fat Tuesday') is the day before Ash Wednesday, and is also called 'Shrove Tuesday' or 'Pancake Day'. Mardi Gras is the final day of Carnival, though the term is often used incorrectly to describe the days and weeks preceding Fat Tuesday. Carnival begins 12 days after Christmas, or Twelfth Night, on January 6 and ends on Mardi Gras, which always falls exactly 46 days before Easter. Perhaps the cities most famous for their Mardi Gras celebrations include Venice, Italy; Mobile, Alabama; New Orleans, Louisiana; and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Many other places have important Mardi Gras celebrations as well. Carnival is an important celebration in most of Europe, and in many parts of Latin America and the Caribbean."

Giants win Super Bowl thriller:




A day that was supposed to be reserved for 19-0 turned into a Giant upset, as New York stunned New England to win Super Bowl XLII.
Trailing late into the fourth quarter, Eli Manning drove the Giants 83 yards down the field, and tossed the game-winning touchdown pass to Plaxico Burress with 35 seconds left in the Super Bowl. Manning was named MVP of the game after going 19-of-34 for 255 yards, two touchdowns and one interception.
Tom Brady was sacked five times, and hit throughout the game by the Giants defense. He finished 29-of-48 for 266 yards and a touchdown. The Patriots finished the season 18-1, failing to become just the second team to cap an undefeated season with a Super Bowl win."

In Response To: MIKE ADAMS PREDICTS THE NEXT FEW YEARS (Watchman) Reader submission mentions the Beijing Olympics---- Does anyone have an opinion as to why the Olympics may be a turning point?
Re: MIKE ADAMS PREDICTS THE NEXT FEW YEARS
I was talking to a City of London banker and he thinks the economy will bobble along,downwards...but he indicated that all bets are off after the Beijing Olympic`s 8-14 August.
History shows us that slumps take years to unwind and all the actions of the financial
elite indicate that this is what they want.
PS, if you post this, don`t use my name please."
