Man Candy Monday.. Ryan Lochte

If you don't follow swimming or the Olympics, you might not be familiar with MCM's Ryan Lochte. 

But i'm sure after his beating out of All American Michael Phelps for Gold in the 400 meter this past weekend... his name will be flying out faster and more frequent than before, making it a new American household name!!!

 Even Sexy with clothes ON! 

 "meet me over there" ..... Ooooo OK!!

 I'm hoping they're coming off instead of going on! 
Who Me?? 

Yes YOU.


Polo hasn't looked that good in awhile!!

Oooo fancy. 

I'm always captivated by a wink and a smile!!

Lemme see your GRILL!! 

I'm sure to be following swimming a little more closely this year, Thanks Mr. Lochte!!

Aurora Colorado. 7-20-2012

It's never easy to deal with death, in any form. 
Senseless killings are that much more difficult to digest, because they are just that, senseless.
 I personally believe that the taking of a life, of ANY life, is wrong and 12 lives have now been confirmed as lost. 
As i sit here at my desk, which is in Aurora, Colorado by the way, i can't help but feel such sadness and a little thrown back to the day of 4/20/1999, when another senseless killing of 12 kids in a school down the street from where i was sitting in my own cafeteria, took place. 
That familiar feeling of helplessness and quasi-guilt of surviving still lingers... thirteen years later. 
I can't express with words how incredibly sorry i am that 12 families and an entire community will now have to face tremendous hard times in the days, weeks, months and years to come. I send my prayers, my thoughts and all the love i can muster to those folks. 
Seems a little trite, but it's kinda all ya can do. 

Please remember to go and hug a loved one, call a lost one, and tell everyone you love just how much they mean to you.... because if last night's tragedy taught me anything, it's that tomorrow's never promised.

Man Candy Monday... Joe Manganiello

To be honest, I've heard the name for a long time, but never put two and two together as to who exactly Joe Manganiello is. 

but then i realized... 

names weren't necessary!! lol 

But if you are interested in what he actually has been a part in... Like True Blood.... Spiderman and Magic Mike.. visit his IMDB ... but if you just wanna oogle his goodies.. i wouldn't be mad. 

Joe Manganiello, you are GORGEOUS!!!
