Don Rickles & The Judds Billboard



This billboard in downtown Minneapolis is going to cost me a lot of money. I've wanted to see Don Rickles for several years. He can't be missed. And I've been a Judd fan since their beginning.

I was at a concert during their rise to the top.

I was at a concert during the Farewell Tour.

I was at a concert during the 2000 Reunion tour.

How can I not attend their Last Encore tour?

Just don't tell my accountant.

Michael Rivers Meets Tim Gunn


I have been a fan of Project Runway since season 1. This summer I met Christopher Straub from season six.

Now I was thrilled to met designer mentor and Mr. Make It Work - Tim Gunn! He was at the Mall of America doing a signing for his new book Gunn's Golden Rules: Life's Little Lessons for Making It Work.

Tim's scenes have always been my favorite. And I can say he is just as sincere and genuine as he appears on the show.

5 on the Fifth: September



Blue is my favorite color. Favorite color. I was happy to see that September's 5 on the Fifth theme was The Blues. Here is my take on it.

Enter my bathroom and you quickly see that Superman is my favorite superhero. Is it because of his blue costume?



I don't know how many blue shirts I own. Here are a few.



Four of my favorite Blu-Ray movies.



Stewie Griffin and the color blue all in one coffee mug. I couldn't resist.



Four of my Joan Rivers Faberge Inspired Eggs are blue. They are my favorites.



Check out The State of the Nation UK to enjoy more of 5 of the Fifth and add your own photos!
