So,it sounds like there's a respite in store for those who have been struggling with rising gas prices , according to Mike Dresser over at Getting There. While the average price around the state has exceeded $4 a gallon, it's not expected to stay there, Dresser reported. Whether it will drop by Memorial Day remains to be seen, but hopefully this summer won't be as painful for drivers as it has been in the past. But regardless of whether gas prices are over or under $4 per gallon, it makes good fiscal sense to improve the fuel economy of our vehicles.

Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel was robbed of what would have been the crowning moment of his young NFL career Sunday when an illegal procedure penalty was called on rookie running back Terrance West for not getting set in the backfield. Manziel, who feigned leaving the field after his lone snap at quarterback for the game, was standing near the sideline - but still on the field - with offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan when he set off into a go-route into open space and hauled in what would have been a 39-yard completion.

Question: What's the trick to making pruned shrubs look good? Mine look hacked up and then don't grow the way I want. Answer: Try to work with the plant's natural growth habit. If it wants to cascade, don't try to make it round or square. If its natural inclination is to have multiple trunks, you can make it a single trunk, but it will need continual pruning of new trunks. Shrubs look more natural if you cut back to a larger branch or a bud. The direction a bud or branch is pointing, is the direction new growth will go. Thus you can control the direction of your plant's branch by cutting to a bud that faces the direction you want.

WASHINGTON - -The end is nearing for an accounting trick destined to be remembered as a hallmark of the housing boom, because it allowed financial firms to conceal a vast expansion in their lending from regulators and investors. Under this strategy, firms placed trillions of dollars in loans in the financial equivalent of self-storage facilities. They were not required to disclose the contents or maintain capital buffers against potential losses. By allowing firms to expand lending without increasing capital, the practice increased profits.

Before you delve too far into this recap, you should know that the most exciting thing to happen tonight on "Glee" is that Santana is a blond. Beyond that, it was cute, but nothing substantial happened. I guess they're saving all the big juice for next week's season finale ... and juicy is definitely the word I'd use for next week based solely upon the preview! Tonight starts with Rachel finding out that she has a blind item about her. For those of you who don't know what a blind item is, it's when folks can send in anonymous tips about celebrities and -- without using said celebrities' names -- say basically anything it is that you want to get off your chest about them.

Last night's thunderstorms matched the gloom Orioles fans likely felt on their couches as the series opener with the Blue Jays progressed, so you're forgiven for not reading up on the rest of the night's action. That's why blogger/reporter Jon Meoli writes the Coffee Companion -- where every morning, Monday through Friday, he'll run back the biggest sports headlines from the previous day. Three-run shots - Blue Jays fans threw hats into center field late in Tuesday's game, marking their “hat trick” of three-run home runs in their 9-3 win over the Orioles . Toronto asked to check Miguel Gonzalez' glove for a foreign substance after four stellar innings from the Orioles starter, and the search turned up nothing.

Back from Tribal Council, Tony is feeling secure, so he's spouting off about people being “worthy” and being “allowed” to stay there. He keeps asking Spencer why it's a compliment that everybody voted for him, and why he's being targeted. Because you're constantly strategizing, you've set yourself up as a leader and you're more than a little bit crazy. Trish and LJ agree with me, because they're talking about whether or not Tony is going to go off the deep end. And sure enough, he can't stop talking about the fact that people are voting for him. He's a self-fulfilling prophecy: he's going to be so paranoid and obsessive that he's going to alienate people in his alliance, and they're going to vote him off, which is what he was paranoid about in the first place.
