Oct. 2003 -- The Learning Channel (TLC) is looking for a few good sheep shearers to participate in the second season of the reality show called ?Faking It.?
The program pairs fakers with mentors for one month in a profession chosen by the producers. The faker then attempts to pass him- or herself off as a true professional in the field.
The show is looking for male sheep shearers, preferably single, between the ages of 21 and 31, to be a mentor. Travel, food and some compensation for missed work will be provided. Shooting begins in the fall with the show actually airing in January 2004.

Sheep ? Asleep
Oct. 2003 -- Boca Raton author Gloria Rothstein recently released her children?s book ?Sheep Asleep,? which has made its way onto several nationally recommended reading lists.
The book is based on the antics of 10 little sheep, all reluctant to go to sleep. From brushing their teeth to picking up their toys, the sheep engage in a variety of stall tactics in hopes of delaying their bedtime. But with the turn of each page, one more sheep drifts off to sleep.
The author compares the behaviors of the sheep to those of her own two sons ? ??my rambunctious little sheep had better things to do than sleep.?
