Bonta took to the seas after this moving experience; she's on a cruise ship sailing The big blue Caribbean ... during the night she stares up at the sky and thinks of stars, planets, aliens and infinity.

And God Created ... Vanna Bonta!


If you've ever been to Washington DC, then you must have walked under the west entrance facade of the National Cathedral. It's a beautiful, awe inspiring piece of architecture.
But if you're wondering what that's got to do with Vanna Bonta ... then I'll tell you that woman is just full of surprises!
Take a good look at the massive sculpture over the west entrance of the Cathedral, that work of art is by master sculptor Frederick Hart and is called "Ex Nihilo" ("the Creation of Mankind out of Nothing, as Narrated in the Book of Genesis").

It portrays God's creation of humankind, men and women taking form from a vortex void of chaos .. and that beautiful, perfect form of a woman (second one on the left) is Vanna Bonta!!!

Newt Gingrich aiming for the moon!

When you think of an election campaign and the promises given to people -in order to collect votes-, what are some of the important question you want answered? What are the promises that you want fulfilled?
I can come up with a few in seconds; more jobs, less taxes, better health services, better education, safety in the streets and conserving the environment, only to name a few ... but the last thing on my mind and on yours -i guess- would be "colonizing the moon" !!
Where the heck did this idea come from, you might ask. Well, it came from Newt Gingrich!
Although this might be the last idea on your mind, and mine, it ain't the last on Newt's list!
Newt actually promised a "human colony on the moon" by the end of his second term.
The guy isn't only promising "Star Trek inspired ideas" but is dreaming of a second term already!
Come on Newt! Fix the problems of housing on Earth first and then think of the moon!

The first couple are going on a date in space!

Hey, if I weren't married, I would have loved to go!

The mulitmillionaire said he will not be wearing a 2Suit on the first date, as that may be "pushing his luck", but he's not ruling out wearing the space suit on a second date that might take the couple "boldly where no man and woman have gone before.”
