A lot of guys, no matter their chronological age, never make it out of their teenaged years, at least not when it comes to their attitudes about women, sex, dating and marriage.

As a hydroponics gardener, you’re already in love with growing the highest quality flowers, fruits and nuts that are loaded with essential oils, potent flavors and delicious aromas that send you to heaven. But there’s one thing you might want to consider growing because it combines all the goodness of your current crops with nutritional and culinary benefits. What is it? Cacao Theobroma, an evergreen tree that produces cacao beans from which are derived the ingredients of chocolate.

I live in the suburbs. Everything looks green, tidy and pleasant. But I’m surrounded by death, pollution, environmental destruction, climate change, poisons, and toxic waste. Here’s why…

Ok, dudes and dudettes, I know what you absolutely crave…so now, take a deep breath and inhale caffeine, chocolate, coffee. Not cups of coffee. Not smelly cigarettes. Not chocolate bars. Just new technology that doses you faster and easier.

Kissing is more intimate than you can imagine. It’s often a prelude to sex. Some people kiss each other on the cheeks as a form of greeting or goodbye. We’re not talking about that kind of kissing.

We’re talking about the kind of kissing that caresses the roof of your mouth, wraps you up in cosmic consciousness, raises your heart rate, tickles your fancy, and leads to even more intimate encounters.

As evidenced by the wild popularity of The Beatles Remastered catalogue and Beatles Rock Band (fully compatible with Wii, XBox and PS3) the Beatles are not just the only band to create an entirely new genre of music, they’re also one of few popular music acts still attracting new fans in the 21st century. With The Beatles Rock Band for Wii, XBox and PS3 bringing older folks into the world of interactive video games, and the availability of Beatles songs on ITunes for download onto IPod, younger people are hearing songs that were hits before your mother was born. But time is brutal: of the original Fab Four, only Ringo Starr and Paul McCartney remain alive.

Forget Sarah Palin, Lady Gaga, Beyonce, and Oprah. Looks to me and a lot of other people like the most influential woman in America is a Greek-American lady named Arianna Huffington. Her website- Huffington Post- gets millions of unique views per month.

Take a listen to the chart-topping music these days: Disney brats, Glee, American Idol has-beens, crossover-country twangers, and old school metalloids are the music products earning big money.

For those of us yearning for something more meaningful, there are a small number of classic albums from artists who view their music as more than ear candy, more than just a way to “get your money for nothing and your chicks for free.”

In these days of Lady Gaga singing about masturbation, Eminem shouting about relapse and rehab, and little Justin Bieber making weird girls squeak, it’s almost funny to see the hoopla surrounding the re-release of the Rolling Stones Exile on Main St. double album.

Back in the day, the Roman Catholic Church, the Vatican, and various popes said rock and roll was “the devil’s music.” So it’s a miracle that the official Vatican newspaper, L’Osservatore Romano, just published its list of the top ten rock albums of all time. The Vatican’s favorite artists include Pink Floyd, The Beatles, U2, Michael Jackson, Oasis, Santana and Fleetwood Mac.

Combine the hallucinatory 1800’s-era writings of Lewis Carroll with Johnny Depp, Tim Burton, 3D and Disney, and what do you get? Alice in Wonderland, that’s what, a sure to be blockbuster 3D movie that sees Depp and Helena Bonham Carter giving wild performances amidst a virtual reality, live action backdrop.

Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass were published in the mid-19th century, and were instantly recognized as a new genre of writing that combines fantasy, surrealism, social commentary, and imagination.

For most of us, 2009 was a year we’re glad to see gone, but moviegoers had something to cheer about and they’re wondering where Avatar, Hurt Locker, Inglorious Bastards, Up, Precious, Up in the Air and other films will be on Oscars night.

The Oscars are Hollywood’s annual celebration of itself.  Officially, it’s the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences that selects Oscar candidates and votes to choose who wins, but I suspect there’s a lot going on behind the scenes that sully the vote.

Bill Maher has wasted no time making this season’s Real Time political comedy show especially controversial and vicious. With comedian Chris Rock as a frequent guest and former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura showing up too, Maher is pouring it on.

Whether or not a movie wins an Oscar is no indication of how good it is, although some of the movies we recommend have won Oscars. And if you haven’t yet heard of a movie or a director, that could well be an indication that the movie was too intelligent, artistic and worthwhile than the herd of shallow movies that dominate North American screens. You can always rely on Rosebud to give you Top 10 movie lists of films that are worth your time. Here's another Top 10 for your viewing pleasure:

Little Big Man: (1970) Narrated by a very aged man whose wild life included being a Native American fighting against the American military, and a white soldier who fought for the US Cavalry that attempted to exterminate Native Americans in the 1800’s, this is a funny, brutal, moving drama that’s also an accurate history lesson. Look for the outstanding performances by Dustin Hoffman, Faye Dunaway, and especially Richard Mulligan’s portrayal of General George Armstrong Custer.
