Transformers live movie trailer
For those of you who were a child of the 80's, like me, probably remember the Transformers phenomenon, with the cartoons and the oh-so-fun toys (I had a great collection--often better than by male classmates, who were subconsciously jealous--and they are still in my mom's attic). I loved the cartoons, but it has been 20 years or so, so I will need to brush up on the characters and names that I don't remember besides Optimus Primeand Megatron. To be released on July 4th, 2007 (I liked the original release date of 7/7/07 better), I hope the live-action movie versiondoesn't ruin the fun of the originals.
Robinson, of Steuben, donated the lobster to the Mount Desert Oceanarium....Bette Spurling, who works at the oceanarium, said lobster shells are usually a blend of the three primary colors: red, yellow and blue. Those colors mix to form the greenish-brown color of most lobsters. This lobster, though, has no blue in half of its shell, she said. Bernard Arseneau, a former manager at the oceanarium's lobster hatchery, said lobsters also have a growth pattern in which the two sides develop independently of each other. The oceanarium has received only three two-toned lobsters in its 35 years of existence, staff members said.
