There's No Place Like Home Remember the pair of original ruby slippers we mentioned earlier that went up for auction in late 2011 with a starting bid of $2 million? Even though they didn't sell, the auction house described them as being in "mint condition with slight circular scuffs on their red soles," hinting that they may have been worn during the close up shots when Judy Garland was clicking her heels and reciting "there's no place like home." If the shoes go up for auction again, the right buyer might be willing to pay $2 to $3 million. Of course, we think if there's ever a pair of shoes worthy of the title of world's most expensive, it's Dorothy's ruby slippers. In 1989 Ronald Winston, son of the famous jewelry designer Harry Winston, wanted to celebrate the 50th anniversary of "The Wizard of Oz" in the most opulent way. After two months of tediously placing 4,600 rubies, the House of Harry Winston unveiled its own version of the famous ruby slippers from the classic film. The over the top shoes not only boast 1,350 carats of rubies, but also 50 carats of diamonds to really put them in a category all their own. With a price tag of $3 million, they are far more lavish than the original shoes, which were adorned only with simple red sequins. They could, however, be surpassed in value one day by a real pair of the ruby slippers.

Even though I've been eating so well lately, you might think, this is where it ends. Might as well kiss all that progress goodbye, right? Business travel and weight loss do not play well together. It doesn't have to be that way. As a management and organization consultant, Gail Griffith spends about four days a month on the road. But as a lifetime member of Weight Watchers, she makes the extra effort to stay on track when she's traveling. Ironically, says the Baltimore based executive, "sometimes traveling can be easier because it requires so much more planning. I never go anywhere without food." As Griffith travels up and down the East Coast, she keeps a compact cooler stocked with carrots, vegetables and healthy snacks in her car. Because she snacks, she's never starving by the time that calorie filled business dinner rolls around. It's a wise tactic, confirms Dale Huss, a registered dietitian and American Council on Exercise spokesperson. Skipping meals is a very common diet trap. It leaves you ravenous by mealtime and more likely to overeat. Griffith found a strategy that works for her. Review these other smart travel tips and figure out what will work to help keep you on Plan, on the road. Wear your sneakers. Travel in your workout shoes and you'll never forget them. Pack exercise clothes so you don't have an excuse to blow off exercise. Book a healthy hotel. Make sure your hotel has a gym. If it's not possible, do a few sets of push ups and sit ups in your room. Or ask the concierge to direct you to the nearest safe park for a daily walk or jog. Eat light in flight. Request low fat meals on airplanes. Or, go a different route: Buy a salad with grilled chicken at the airport and eat it onboard with your own low fat dressing. Harness your snack power. Power bars and peanuts (in moderation), bottled water, fresh vegetable sticks, and fruit can prevent hunger between meals. Just say no. Request water or seltzer with a twist instead of alcohol when traveling, especially on the plane. Water keeps you hydrated and may help you recover from jet lag faster. The result: You'll have more energy and motivation to exercise. Nike Roshe Run Hyp Women Navy Dark Grey,SPOKANE, Wash. For nearly 40 minutes here Friday night, the New Mexico State Aggies fearlessly messed with Texas everywhere and in every which way except the one place on a basketball court you can't the free throw line. From that hallowed location, the Longhorns were close to perfect. And it made the difference. All American Kevin Durant's game high 27 points, augmented by a 15 for 16 effort from the line, helped Texas pull away late and defeat the Aggies 79 67 in a first round NCAA Tournament game at Spokane Arena. The fourth seeded Longhorns (25 9) hit 25 of 26 free throws for the game, the third highest percentage (96.2) ever in a first or second round tournament game. It spoiled what gloriously might have been for the 13th seeded Aggies (25 9), who rallied from a 14 point second half deficit to lead 62 61 with 5:45 to play. At that point, "we definitely felt like momentum was in our favor and we had 'em going," said Aggie junior Justin Hawkins, who had 11 points. "But every time we got a run, there was a foul or something and they were making their free throws." To their credit, facing another acid test in a season of numerous close games, the Longhorns weren't betrayed by their youth. It was sadly poetic that the Aggies' season died the way it had thrived. New Mexico State came in averaging 19 makes and 29 attempts from the stripe per game leading the nation in both categories. Against Texas, NMSU was 10 of 12. "It's so difficult because (Texas is) not scoring buckets, they're going to the line," said New Mexico State coach Reggie Theus. "We're scoring buckets and not getting to the line, and then you draw your own conclusions. At the end of the game, we didn't get a chance to get in a rhythm because of that." In his final college game, senior guard Elijah Ingram scored a team high 16 points, going 4 of 11 on 3 point tries, for New Mexico State, and Hatila Passos added 15 points. The Aggies came in averaging 78 points a game on 48 percent shooting. Texas held them to 40 percent with a game plan that was often implemented against the Aggies. "We wanted to pack our defense back in there as much as we could and force perimeter shots," said Texas coach Rick Barnes. "It wasn't by any means as fluid as we would like for it to be, but it wasn't going to be because of their pressure." Texas stretched a 33 30 halftime lead to 47 33 with a 12 0 run early in the second half. It was wrapped around a technical foul on Theus, T'd up after his boilover when Aggie center Martin Iti was called for an offensive foul. Then Ingram hit 3s on consecutive possessions en route to a team high 16 points. Augustin's hands, finally began to rattle Texas. It culminated with a front court deflection by David Fisher that was picked up by freshman guard Jonathan Gibson. He was fouled on the way to the basket, then sank two free throws. The Aggies led 58 57 with 7:13 left. New Mexico State last led on Passos' dunk off a Fred Peete inbounds feed, making it 62 61 with 5:45 left. "We had the tempo and we made them play the style of basketball we wanted to play," said Theus. Abrams hit a leaner in the lane, freshman forward Damion James scored underneath, and Durant hit two free throws each in successive possessions. Durant, whose eight rebounds shared game high honors with Passos, was 6 of 13 from the field and 0 of 4 on 3 pointers, "but a scorer knows how to score," said Theus. "He's a pro." "(New Mexico State) did a great job of denying me the ball," said Durant. "When I got the ball in the post, they sent two or three guys on me. But I gave the ball up and (later) when I got to the free throw line, I hit my free throws." Durant had 14 points on 5 of 9 shooting in the first half. The Aggies' plan to stick 6 9 junior Tyrone Nelson on him crumbled when Nelson picked up his second foul seven minutes into the game and sat the rest of the half. Nelson, who averaged 15.1 points a game, fouled out with four points and three rebounds. "He never really got a chance to play," said Theus. The Aggies led much of the half, as much as 24 19, because big men Passos and Iti each had three baskets and were having their way inside. "I didn't think it was going to be easy," said Barnes. "They're a hard group of guys to play because they're long and athletic, and they obviously have experience, even if it's not quote unquote NCAA experience." Texas moves on to Sunday's second round here against Southern Cal, which beat Arkansas in another first round game. NMSU's last NCAA win was in 1993, and that was vacated because of violations that occurred in the program at that time. "Bottom line is that we hadn't made the NCAAs since 1999, and our guys worked extremely hard to get here," said Theus. "I'm extremely proud of our guys."

Nike Roshe Run Hyp Women Navy Dark Grey My current jogging stroller is huge, impossible to fold and takes up my whole trunk. No way does it fit though doorways. And the shocks are terrible. I had heard of the Baby Jogger City Mini and even City Select strollers, but I had no idea the company had actual jogging strollers too. I recently had the opportunity to take a single Baby Jogger Summit X3 out for a spin with Raffi. Here are some things I love about it: 1. Storage of strollers is always an issue for me, and I love how compact this stroller is when folded. It has the signature Baby Jogger one hand fold, and I was able to easily fold it while wearing the baby. More importantly, it was easy to lift into my car trunk without full use of both of my hands. 2. The Summit X3 can fit through every doorway without a problem. I am no longer a runner, but I love using a jogging stroller to run errands or go for powerwalks. Doorways can be an issue with many strollers. This one fits through a standard doorway without ever catching the wheels an issue I have with many other strollers I used in the past. 3. Raffi does not notice any bumps in the road. This is huge because Raffi usually says oh! about 1,000 times as we walk through the city due to the bumpy sidewalks. The suspension is great and he seems like a king when he in this stroller. The seats look very comfortable, and I imagine that he could fit in this stroller for years to come. In fact, I seen older kids in this stroller a few times, and they all look very comfortable. 4. You can lock the front wheel without bending over. I will admit that I rarely need to lock the front wheel, but when I do need to it is quite convenient to simply use the swivel lock mechanism on the side of the handlebar. What to watch for: I found the storage basket to be a little difficult to access. It is fairly large, but it isn as open as some other strollers I seen. Baby Jogger is launching the Summit X3 double jogging stroller, and I be curious to see if the double stroller is as impressive as the single. I love that this stroller is safe for jogging but feels small like a regular every day stroller. As someone who once owned a BOB Revolution jogging stroller, I feel that I can compare the two. I found the BOB to have a smoother ride for Raffi and better suspension overall, but the stroller often got stuck in doorways. It was also a huge pain to fold and store it. It took up most of our very roomy Jeep trunk. The Baby Jogger Summit X3 has a bit less of a smooth ride, but nothing I think the kids would notice. It also folds extremely easily and fits nicely in our trunk with lots of room to spare. Both are easy to push. If I had to choose between the two I would consider my needs. If you planning on doing a lot of trail running or won have a need to transport your stroller and enjoy having a large storage basket, I go with the BOB. If I wanted one stroller for both every day and exercise, I would go with the Summit X3. Both are great strollers, but have different advantages depending on your need. Win!
