Monday night, I watched Betty White's 90th birthday roast. I think if you're an old timer like me, you appreciate it more as you remember the way the celebrities were and the old programs. What Betty says to the soul is we can look and feel great as we age. Most of it goes to good genetics, less stress, finding the right partner no matter how long it lasts, finding purpose in life and ... at the end of the day - good programming.
While watching the Golden Globes live this year, I noticed that the men looked older and grayer and the ladies stayed youthful - mostly due to cosmetic procedures - but gorgeous nonetheless. Ricky Gervais had limited air time and was only mildly annoying, though his closing statement about the audience having the night out to take their mind off the recession, was perfect. Loved George and Brad - and Angie was breath-taking as always.

Scientists set to drill into buried Antarctic lake MSNBC - January 16, 2012
A team of four British engineers recently returned from a 10-day trip to a desolate, windswept plain in Antarctica, setting the stage for a project that could uncover previously unknown life that has been cut off from the world for millennia. Scientists with the British Antarctic Survey are seeking to drill through the continent's thick covering of ice to a giant, hidden lake, cut off since before modern humans first evolved, which may house life forms invisible to human eyes. They could be unlike anything scientists have seen before. "We expect to find microorganisms," said Martin Siegert, the principal investigator on the project, "because there's water and where there's water on planet Earth, there's life."
