Man this is B-I-G!!!
DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Dubai is set to open the world's tallest building amid tight security on Monday, celebrating the tower as a bold feat on the world stage despite the city state's shaky financial footing.
But the final height of the Burj Dubai— Arabic for Dubai Tower — remained a closely guarded secret on the eve of its opening. At more than 2,625 feet, it long ago vanquished its nearest rival, the Taipei 101 in Taiwan.
The building boasts the most stories and highest occupied floor of any building in the world, and ranks as the world's tallest structure, beating out a television mast in North Dakota. Its observation deck — on floor 124 — also sets a record.
The finished product contains more than 160 floors. That is over 50 stories more than Chicago's Willis Tower, the tallest record-holder in the U.S. formerly known as the Sears Tower.
At their peak, some apartments in the Burj were selling for more than $1,900 per square foot, though they now can go for less than half that, said Heather Wipperman Amiji, chief executive of Dubai real estate consultancy Investment Boutique.
Besides luxury apartments and offices, the Burj will be home to a hotel designed by Giorgio Armani.
It's also the centerpiece of a 500-acre development that officials hope will become a new central residential and commercial district in this sprawling and often disconnected city. It is flanked by dozens of smaller but brand-new skyscrapers and the Middle East's largest shopping mall.
LOOK AT IT'S COMPARISON TO OTHER OF THE WORLD'S MOST FAMOUS AND TALLEST BUILDINGS...
I have missed the girls OH SO VERY MUCH!!!!

Toby Keith has been named the top country artist and songwriter of the decade by Billboard magazines. And he was also one of the top-selling artists of the past 10 years.
Among his hits during the 00's, or whatever you want to call them, were "How Do You Like Me Now," "Courtesy Of The Red, White And Blue ," "Beer For My Horses," "I Love This Bar," "As Good As I Once Was" and "God Love Her."
(BTW: TOBY came in third on the list of artists on the decade's all-genre Billboard 200 chart, with Eminem at No. 1 and Britney Spears at No. 2. In descending order, Keith is followed in the country artist category by Kenny Chesney, Tim McGraw, Rascal Flatts and George Strait.)
Allright, Hot or Not???
What do you thing of Mike Fisher..Feel free to comment below..I think he's got that Hot, Hockey player vibe going on:)
There are more changes to come at American Idol!
Not only are we getting a new judge in Ellen Degeneres-which I am interested to see how it goes, they are moving the time slot of American Idol back an hour! It will now begin at 8pm central time..Can we stay up that late?
Apparently they are making room for a new tv show. It's called Human Target. The show is based on a graphic novel abouta bodyguard? Hmmm
And they couldn't give us more Glee?
Brad Paisley is the KING of pranks on the road. He does them to every single opening act he has..He's hidden rotten chicken in Blake Shelton's tour bus, trapped Jack Ingram in a cage, and sent men dressed as Cinderella out on stage in the middle of Chuck Wicks' set.
Kelly Pickler has gotten the brunt of many of them. Brad says his favorite prank is this one he put together that played on the huge jumbotron at his show on the last night she was an opening act...It's called..YOU BE THE JUDGE and Brad admits to using a lot of photoshop...Poor girl, she had to go on stage after this!!!
You can expect more hilarity on Brad's next tour, American Saturday Night. This tour features opening acts, Justin Moore and Miranda Lambert..I wouldn't mess w. Miranda. We'll have to see about getting them to Green Bay!!
Last week I was grocery shopping. I had my daughter, Presley and my little cock-a-shon, Tedd with me. Teddy loves to go for rides and sometimes he just sleeps in the car while we are messing around our house. Well I had to get some milk and hamburger for dinner so I stopped into a local grocery store. I'm shopping and I hear..."Would the owner of a black Toyota Camry come to service desk?" I was sort of starled and thought, is that me? then I hear, "Would the owner of a black Toyota Camry and a small dog please come to service desk?"..I think-Oh, god Teddy got out and got hit by a car..I Rush up the the service desk, there's Teddy!! Apparently he got out and snuck into the grocery store looking for Presley and I...what a dog!!
There are some days where Teddy is always at my feet and I'm tripping over him or I will be in the bathroom, doing my business and he just sits and stares at me. I get so frusterated at him and sometimes yell at him to "get away" or "Go lay down". But I have to stop and remember that this little dog came from a puppy mill where he was in a cage All-Day-Long forced to stud other dogs. He doesn't even sit all the way up because he is use to scrunching over in his cage for the first year of his life. This is when I know that this is the greatest form on unconditional love that a person can ever reciebe. No matter what, this little creature is going to love me! If you've never had a pet-you really should think about getting one. They are quite amazing...I know my Teddy is.
Please give to St. Judes. These children need us to find a cure...

Brittany Murphy died early this morning after she went into full cardiac arrest and could not be revived. I am in complete shock, she was my age...32 years young!!
A 911 call was made at 8:00 AM from a home in Los Angeles that is listed as belonging to her husband, Simon Monjak. Murphy was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center where she was pronounced dead on arrival.
Brittany Murphy's was found unconscious in the shower by her own mother, how horrible!
Murphy starred in such films as "Clueless," "8 Mile," "Girl, Interuptted" and "Don't Say a Word"
There is no official rulint on her death yet, but from what I'm being told by those close to her is that this isn't that big of a surprise. Apparently Brittany was using drugs around the time of her death and had been dabbling quite a bit.
My thoughts and prayers going out to her family members and loved ones.
When I know more, I'll keep you updated!
