New York Rangers forward Sean Avery has been sent to hospital after lacerating his spleen during a playoff loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Not saying he deserved to get hurt.  I never like to see anyone get hurt, but man as soon as I read this headline the only thing I could think was KARMA.

Wife and mother arrested 32 years after escaping prison

Absoultey amazing!!!

SAN DIEGO — Authorities say a woman who escaped from a Detroit prison 32 years ago has been arrested in San Diego, where she was a wife and mother living under a false name.

U.S. Marshals say 53-year-old Susan Lefevre was taken into custody Thursday in the Carmel Valley area.

In 1976, Lefevre managed to walk out of the Detroit House of Corrections after serving just one year of a 10- to 20-year sentence on conspiracy and drug convictions.

Using the name Marie Walsh, she married, raised three children and had been living in San Diego for nearly 10 years.

Authorities in late March received a tip saying Lefevre might be living in California as Marie Walsh. They confirmed it through a thumbprint match.

When she was arrested, Lefevre told marshal’s deputies that her family had no idea she was a fugitive.

VitaSpelt Pretzels

Spelt PretzelsI haven’t done a food review in a long time. So here you go. I bought these pretzels from Sprouts because pretzels are a great alternative to chips, they are less calories. These Pretzels however, do not taste right.

I have had lots of pretzels before that look just like these, and these just don’t taste like pretzels are supposed to. I would love to tell you what they taste like but there is a total absence of flavor. Its just not right. I guess Spelt is a different kind of grain. Its not for me.

Being an “Interweb” person, I know who will have the answer (the great and powerful OZ, aka): Google. Here are the top 5 products with the item number of 40404:
