On his recent travels in Europe, Justin Bieber ran into some problems in Germany. He had not obtained proper papers to bring his pet capuchin monkey into the country, so the monkey was put into quarantine.
That made us wonder: Do capuchin monkeys make good pets? We asked Debbie Leahy, manager of captive wildlife protection for the Humane Society of the United States.
I don’t mean to sound paranoid, but…it seems potential danger lurks everywhere on the Internet and your inbox — as criminals seek to infiltrate your computer or raid your bank account. That old saying that everyone is out to get you is basically true these days. Well, not everyone, but a surprisingly large number of people truly are out to get you.
Sometimes store brands do not cut it in taste. But if you are interested in trying a product that tastes a step up from the normal store brand, but do not want to pay the brand name price, then try Kroger’s Private Selection. Yes, it is Kroger’s name. I was delighted how the tomato sauce tasted and is all natural. I can say every one of the few ingredients in it. The Greek Yogurt was great too. At first I thought it was odd the fruit was separated, but now I know why, it allows for the fruit taste to be better. The only down side was the yogurt selection was tiny and the sell by date was several days past. I used a coupon to try it as yogurt can go a week past that date at least. It should have been marked managers special, but since I am a BzzAgent and the other stuff was provided for me for free, I went and got it. Otherwise I would have left the yogurt on the shelf. BzzAgent allows me to express my own views good or bad.
Want to experience comfort and long lasting underwear and socks? Look no further… The dress socks sent to me I thought would have not been comfortable being thin for dress shoes. I was wrong. I do own normal white socks I bought years ago, they are still comfortable and last. My no brand ones I bought around the same time are still ok in comfort and a few are ready to be donated for enrichment at my work. I will stick with Gold Toe socks.

If you ever wonder why brownies taste so sweet and then you go to your local bakery and the sweetness tastes just sweet enough. You compliment them on it and they tell you the reason is that they use sugar and no High-Frucous Corn Syrup. So you can be amazed at trying this candy that it tastes just right in sweetness and I am not putting even more junk in my body that is unnecessary. I highly suggest giving it a try today. CVS has them super cheap this week and on top of it, they are buy one get one free.

LONDON — Bats in the bleachers of Olympic Stadium? Now there’s an Olympic legacy to give many people nightmares.
But not Kim Olliver. Faced with the prospect of having bats take up residence in the girders of Olympic stadium, Olliver, the senior ecologist for the London Olympics, could barely contain her joy.

My recent series of columns on troubles at IBM brought me many sad stories from customers burned by Big Blue. I could write column after column just on that, but it wouldn’t be any fun so I haven’t. Only now a truly teachable lesson has emerged from a couple of these horror tales and it has to do with US IT labor economics and immigration policy. In short the IT service sector has been shoveling a lot of horseshit about H1B visas.
Is there an IT labor shortage in the USA that can only be solved with more H1B visas?
