  • SERIES FINALE: 30 ROCK _ House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Salma Hayek and Ice-T guest star in tonight's (8p ET, NBC) 30 Rock series finale.
  • JOHNNY CASH POSTAGE STAMP _ Country music legend Johnny Cash will grace a special stamp issued this year as part of its new music icons series.
  • SUPER BOWL FOOD _ Around $55 million was spent on food for last year's Super Bowl. If the amount's the same this year, it will take ten million man hours to prepare.
  • Broccoli, kale and spinach are nearly perfect foods, since they are packed with vitamins and minerals your body needs. But leafy green veggies are the number one cause of food poisoning, according to the Atlanta-based U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Meat lovers should also beware, since tainted meat and poultry cause more deaths from foodborne illnesses than any other food.
  • A new study has found that men who do more housework have LESS SEX.  Men who do a lot of housework average sex with their wives 3.2 times a month.  While men who just do traditionally 'manly' things like car repair have sex 4.8 times a month.  The researchers say it's because we still follow old-fashioned gender patterns.  If a woman sees a man vacuuming, she finds him less sexually attractive.
  • If Congress wants us to LOVE THEM again, all they have to do is this.  Make the day after the Super Bowl a NATIONAL HOLIDAY, so we can all get it off of work.  Right now there's a petition on the White House's website calling for it . . . but it needs almost 90,000 more signatures by February 23rd to get an official response from the OBAMA administration.
