Morning Mix Show Notes 4/25
Lilo is a hot mess. Again. Just how much will the royal wedding cost and have you noticed the price of everything is going up?
Lindsay, Lindsay, Lindsay...Lindsay Lohan is in deep doo doo and even though she hasn't been formally convicted of stealing that necklace, she went to court on Friday for a hearing regarding a probation violation stemming from her DUI arrest. Lilo was sentenced to 120 days in jail and 480 hours of community service for the probation violation and the charges surrounding the alleged necklace theft have been downgraded from a felony to a misdemeanor. Lindsay is free while she appeals the jail sentence. The community service is NON negotiable. The theft trial is June 3.
The price of EVERYTHING is going up these days, but you may notice some things suddenly cost WAY more than they did just a couple of months ago. From MSNBC:
1. Plane Tickets - Rising fuel costs have forced airlines to raise prices by more than 20% between August and February.
2. Produce - Fruits and vegetables cost almost 25% more than they did in January. Bananas alone cost 10% more. Potatoes are up almost 40%.
4. Soft Drinks - Higher costs for packaging, ingredients and transportation have led to a 14% jump in price for your favorite carbonated drink.
Speaking of expensive, the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton will reportedly cost $34 million dollars. Yikes! $32 million of that is for security alone. The bill for clean up is $64 thousand dollars because there will be more than one million people celebrating in the streets and someone has to pick up after them. Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles are throwing two parties for the couple which will cost about $600 thousand dollars total. The cakes will cost $80 grand. There will be two cakes: Traditional cream for Kate and white fruit cake for Prince William. The wedding gown will cost $434 thousand dollars. Her parents are footing the bill for that. Kate's wedding ring cost $11 thousand dollars, which Prince William paid for. The engagement ring was of course free, as the Prince used Princess Diana's ring. Prince William and Kate Middleton will get married at Westminster Abbey this Friday, April 29 at 11am London time (5am Central).
