Team of Sexy Housekeepers Cleaning Up Florida

2010, Mar 15th

Miami, Florida – They’re the housekeepers men dream about, and now they’re reality.

“You’re enjoying the view, you’re enjoying the cleaning,” said Nina Torres.

That’s the concept that motivated Torres to start Edan’s Maids R’ Us, a team of sexy housekeepers that service South Florida. “They actually clean, I can guarantee you that,” said Torres.

The website specifically explains it is not an escort service.

“No, we are 100 percent house cleaners, we clean your house, we organize, we cook we do laundry, nothing else,” Torres said.

Edan’s maids charge $60 per hour with a two hour minimum.

But before you call, you can go online and access their menu of maids. They have 15 total and you can choose which one comes to your house.

When you click on a maid, it shows their stats, including height, weight, age, ethnicity, even measurements.

“It’s like a restaurant, in a way” said Frances, one of Edan’s Maids. “You get to choose the plate that you want.”

“Someone yesterday said it’s so hard to choose just one,” Torres proudly explained. “They said they love them all, just give me the best.”

Edan’s maids go out on jobs alone, but Torres screens customers on the phone and has every girl call when they arrive and leave to make sure they’re safe.

“If somebody ever tries to be fresh, I mean you have to tell them this isn’t what it is, I’m sorry if you must have a misunderstanding,” Frances said.

So far, Torres said there hasn’t been a single problem and her maids often spend time just chatting with customers who are looking for company.

“It’s like a partner for a little bit, it’s a friend, somebody to spend time with and have fun with,” Frances said.

So, if your house is really dirty, this might not be your best bet, but, if you’ve got some chores that need to be done and you want a sexy show at the same time, Edan’s Maids R’ Us are for you.

New Spill-Proof Martini Glass Hits The Bar Scene

2010, Mar 15th

Dallas, Texas – Whether shaken or stirred, dry or dirty, one issue always floats to the top when you order a martini: It’s not exactly the easiest drink to keep in its glass.

Renee Williams saw a problem and came up with a solution.

“I was at a girls night out and we were mingling and just having fun and I kept hearing requests for napkins and paper towels and the reason was because they were spills,” she explains. “It really just popped into my head and I was like ok, I know what I can do.”

Renee created her own martini glass.

She calls it “Sipatiniz”.

It’s designed with a lip to keep the liquid inside and a hole for a little straw.

“It just cuts down on that basic slosh when you’re mingling around and talking with your hands and the things we do,” Renee explains.

They’re now available in more than 100 retail stores across the country.

* If you don’t want to spill your martini, USE A DIFFERENT GLASS! Not sure why people have to use a martini glass for martinis. It’s only a look, imho.

US Man Says Marijuana Is Sacred Part Of His Religion, Drug Charge Violates His Rights

2010, Mar 14th

Avon, Colorado – A U.S. man who claims marijuana is the main sacrament of his religion says a drug charge against him means he’s being prosecuted for his beliefs.

Trevor Douglas of the state of Colorado says he belongs to the Hawaii-based THC Ministry but was cited for marijuana possession after a state police officer pulled him over for having an expired license plate. The 25-year-old allegedly had less than an ounce of marijuana and a pipe.

Douglas told the Vail Daily newspaper that his religion is similar to Christianity and that the use of pot is sacred to him just like wine and bread are sacred to Christians.

According to its Web site, THC Ministry has offices in Los Angeles, Montana and Colorado.

US Detectives Leave ‘Ransom Note’ For Seized Pot; Suspected Grower Arrested After Calling

2010, Mar 14th

Marathon, Fla. – Investigators in the Florida Keys say they lured a suspected marijuana grower into turning himself in by leaving a ransom note in place of six seized pot plants.

The sheriff’s office in Monroe County says detectives discovered the plants in a wooded lot and confiscated them.

They left a phone number on a note that read: “Thanks for the grow! You want them back? Call for the price.”

Steven Alan Locasio called the number about 10 minutes later. Locasio offered $200 for the plants, and detectives agreed to meet him for an exchange.

Locasio was arrested and booked into jail on drug charges. He was expected to appear in court Tuesday. It’s unclear if he already has an attorney.

A telephone message left for Locasio was not immediately returned.

Free Boob Jobs Offered To Nurses At Prague Clinic

2009, May 31st
AN understaffed Prague clinic has signed up nurses by offering boob jobs, liposuction and tummy tucks as a bonus.

Nurses, doctors and secretaries who sign up with the small private clinic for three years can choose their free plastic surgery.

“It has been a success,” Jiri Schweitzer, a manager at the Iscare clinic, said, adding the establishment was now fully staffed and had to reject dozens of beauty-hunting job applicants.

Petra Kalivodova, a 31-year-old nurse who has been working at the clinic for four years, has had a breast implants – the most popular choice among nurses – so she underwent liposuction for her signing on perk.

“I have mentioned this to colleagues and friends, and the interest in working here is huge,” she said.

The clinic charges up to 75,000 koruna ($5060) for a breast implant, almost three times the average nurse’s monthly wage, and up to €1880 ($3380) for liposuction.

Many Czech nurses have been tempted out of the country by higher wages offered in western European nations and the Czech health system now needs about 6000 nurses in addition to the 90,000 it already employs, according to official data.

Fake ‘No Parking’ Signs Fool Tarpon Springs Police, Who Write 233 Tickets Near Tarpon Turtle Restaurant

2009, May 31st

No ParkingTarpon Springs ­ Police blame a local developer for installing “no parking” signs around a popular city restaurant that resulted in 233 tickets being written in a two-year span.

At the same time, acting Tarpon Springs police Chief Robert Kochen acknowledged his department’s failure to properly handle the matter in 2007.

“We messed up,” Kochen said. “We did not look at this thing like we should have.”

In a 23-page report released this week, Kochen said developer Mike Bronson admitted recently to installing the signs along the city’s right of way after initially denying it.

“Mike Bronson advised that back around April of 2006 he installed all of the 22 signs due to the parking problems caused by customers of the Tarpon Turtle,” Kochen wrote in the report.

Bronson could not be reached for comment.

Man Busts Wife, Mate In Porn DVD

2009, May 31st

A Taiwan carpenter bought a porn DVD only to find secretly taped motel footage of his wife having sex with his friend, whom the husband later stabbed.

The husband, identified only by his surname Lee, discovered the illicit sex on the DVD in 2002.

The sexual acts apparently had been recorded using a hidden camera and were on a pornographic DVD, titled Affairs with Others’ Wives, which the husband bought from a vendor to watch at home.

Lee, who lives in Taoyuan County near Taipei, divorced his wife after viewing the DVD. His friend, a butcher, fled their village.

In August 2008, Lee spotted the butcher in Chungli City, returned with a knife and stabbed his former friend in the thigh.

The butcher sued Lee for causing bodily harm. Lee sought but was unable to countersue the butcher for adultery, because of a five-year statute of limitations.

Prosecutors urged the men to settle the case out of court, but they refused.

With the failure to resolve the case, Lee was indicted on Tuesday on a charge of causing bodily harm to another person, the Liberty Times reported.

Prosecutors were seeking a sentence of less than six months in prison, which can be converted into a fine.

Cuban Rolls Record-Breaking 43-Meter Cigar

2009, May 20th

Cuban CigarHavana – A Cuban cigar roller broke his forth world record, creating a 43.38-meter-long (142-foot-long) stogie that doubled his previous best.

Sixty-five-year-old Jose Castelar smoked his own 2005 record of a 20.41-meter-long (67-foot-long) cigar, and vowed to continue to roll record-breaking creations.

“I’m going to continue until I do one that is the length of the Malecon” he said, referring to Havana’s famous 10-kilometer (six-mile) seafront promenade.

Castelar – who has rolled for a Saudi prince, among others – received a Guinness world record for his troubles.

Decked out in a traditional white guayabera, Castelar explained he learned to make cigars when he was 14 years old.

But the athletic-looking sexagenarian said he limits himself to smoking one cigar a day.

Swiss Canton Bans Nude Hiking

2009, May 20th

Appenzell, Switzerland – Hikers will no longer be able to stroll naked through the idylic Alpine countryside of Appenzell Innerrhoden after the conservative Swiss canton banned nude walking there.

Appenzell Innerrhoden has become hugely popular for naked ramblers due to its tranquil, picture-perfect meadows and valleys. But the hordes offended Appenzellers’ sensitivities and they voted Sunday to order them to cover up.

“It’s ridiculous that Appenzell is getting an international reputation for such a despicable habit,” said Peter Schmid, who turned up bearing the canton’s traditional long sword to vote against nude hiking at the annual open-air Landsgemeinde.

The Landsgemeide is a popular assembly that takes place in Appenzell town on the last Sunday of April. Participants vote by raising hands to decide on local issues, a privilege reserved to men only until women were admitted in 1990.

Between 3,000 and 4,000 voters, many wearing traditional robes, turned up at this year’s Landsgemeinde.

The canton of Appenzell Innerrhoden started earlier this year to take steps to rein in what the local justice and police department called “immoral habits.”

Two Nabbed After Sending Drugs To Wrong Address

2009, May 20th

HashMadrid – Spanish police said Wednesday they had arrested two men who accidentally mailed a package containing three bars of hashish to the wrong address.

One of the men went to a courier company in the southern city of Malaga on April 6 and asked the employee to send the package, which contained wine, sausages and cakes in addition to the hashish, police said in a statement.

The following day the man returned to the courier company to complain that the package had not arrived at its intended destination only to learn that he had given the company the wrong address.

Police seized about 600 grammes (21 ounces) of hashish. They did not identify the two men who are aged 30 and 32.

Lingerie Firm Offers Women Liberating Loincloths

2009, May 20th

Female LoinclothKyoto, Japan – Whether you’re a g-string girl or prefer granny-style knickers, a Japanese lingerie maker is inviting women to liberate themselves from conventional, body-hugging underwear and don loincloths instead.

Loincloths, called “fundoshi” in Japanese, were worn by adult men in the past, but they are now a rarity.

Kyoto-based lingerie firm Wacoal, however, has brought them back into fashion, this time for women seeking “emancipation” from the tightness of conventional underwear.

“We wanted young women to have a more sense of freedom and release. And as we tried to come up with the ultimate liberation item for women, we thought of a fundoshi,” said Tomoka Okamura, merchandise director for Wacoal’s Nanafun female loincloths.

The loincloths for women come in seven different colors and two designs — plain and chequered. Prices are about 1,260 yen ($13).

Wacoal has sold more than 5,000 since December, three times more than it had expected, officials said, and the company now plans to start selling them in Hong Kong, Taiwan and Singapore.

“It’s easy to wear and is quite nice. It’s also good for summer. And since it’s getting warmer, I figured it would be good for that,” said Hiromi Iwamura, a 28-year-old shopper who was buying a patterned loincloth and matching bra.

Oompa-Loompa, Spiderman And The Teletubby Tinky Winky Held After Brawl

2009, May 20th

TeletubbiesViolence flared at the Welcome Family Holiday Park in coastal resort of Dawlish, Devon, on Sunday during a fancy dress themed evening.

Up to 20 inebriated holidaymakers in costumes clashed at around 1am in the camp’s clubhouse.

Police were called to the scene after two members of staff were assaulted.

The man dressed as an Oompa-Loompa character from the film Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, is thought to be a 47-year-old father.

He and two others were kept in police cells overnight after being questioned on suspicion of violent disorder.

A staff member at the holiday park told The Sun newspaper: “It was rather comical in some ways because of the fancy dress costumes people were wearing.

“You don’t expect to see Teletubby Tinky Winky and Spiderman in the middle of things like this.”

He added: “It was a case of too much booze being knocked back and then something happened which kicked things off.”

There were no serious injuries.

A Devon and Cornwall police spokesman said alleged culprits were identified “by what they were wearing”.

Charla Muller Gives Husband A Year’s Worth Of Sex For His 40th Birthday

2009, May 20th

A US woman has written a book about the unusual gift she gave her husband for his 40th birthday – 365 nights of sex.

High-flying PR exec Charla Muller, from North Carolina, hit upon the idea for her salesman husband Brad, now 42, and has written a book about the year.

Here’s some of the excerpts printed in The Sun:

“When I offered my husband sex every day for a year to celebrate his 40th birthday he literally fell over. After hearing the words, Brad slipped on a toy on the floor and landed with a thud. As I had spent so long thinking about an exciting present that I thought he would love, I was confident he would say yes. But to my astonishment, Brad refused my offer. He said: “It’s a great idea, I just don’t think you really mean it.”

Being intimate at night meant we worked better as a couple during the day. Our house ran better because we were more agreeable. Having sex regularly made me start looking around, wondering who else was getting good loving. Is it the good-looking women or the regular mums – like me?

California Assemblyman Suggests Legal Marijuana to Help State Income

2009, Feb 26th

Marijuana FieldSacramento, CA — A California state lawmaker says he has a plan to help get the Golden State out of debt.

He wants to legalize pot for people 21 and over, tax it and use the tax money to help raise billions of dollars.

State Assemblyman Tom Ammiano says, “I think here in California we understand $14 billion is something that can’t be blown off. The state deserves to have a piece of it.”

That’s why San Francisco Assemblyman Tom Ammiano is introducing legislation that would tax and regulate marijuana. He’s not talking about medical marijuana; he’s talking about pot used socially just like beer and wine.

Betty Yee of the State Board of Economics says, “The revenue impact of this proposal will generate over $1.3 billion.”

$990 million would come from a $50 per ounce levy, $350 million from sales tax revenue.

Marijuana is California’s top cash crop, according to federal government statistics valued at $14 billion in 2006.

Topless Cafe in Maine Gives Neighbors the Jitters

2009, Feb 26th

Vassalboro, Maine — Cup size has more than one meaning at a new central Maine coffeehouse.

Servers are topless at the Grand View Topless Coffee Shop, which opened its doors Monday on a busy road in Vassalboro. A sign outside says, “Over 18 only.” Another says, “No cameras, no touching, cash only.”

On Tuesday, two men sipped coffee at a booth while three topless waitresses and a bare-chested waiter stood nearby. Topless waitress Susie Wiley said men, women and couples have stopped by.

The coffee shop raised the ire of dozens of residents when it went before the town planning board last month. Town officials said the coffee shop met the letter of the law.

“As I walk by I saw this guy with two blowup dolls – kissing them and bouncing them and trying to get people’s attention,” said a witness who wanted to remain anonymous.

A customer that saw what was happening inside the car ran inside the store to get a manager while another customer called Cape Coral police.
