They’ve been around for years but I’ve never had a kiwi berry. Have you? They’re becoming the hot new superfood in the US.


What if, instead of honking at people, you could quack at them instead? Researchers say a quack is the best sound to get people’s attention in a less stressful way. Can you imagine how this would change the sound of New York City?


If you received a box of Chanel purses and other merchandise worth $40,000, what would you do with it? Most people wouldn’t do what this guy did. Matt Hwang returned it.

There’s a total solar eclipse coming up on August 21st and it’ll be seen coast to coast for the first time in close to 100 years. So hotels in the “path of totality” are filling up with people hoping to get the best view. But the very best view of the eclipse may be from the air… aboard an Alaska Airlines flight. The airline is planning a viewing party 35,000 feet in the air for a select group astronomers and guests but they’ll give away two seats as part of a marketing promotion beginning July 21 on the company’s social media outlets. Here’s a taste of what you’ll see, courtesy of Joe Rao from Space.com


Here’s one way to ruin a vacation. A tourist in China was happily trying on bracelets in a gem shop and asked how much the bangle she was wearing cost. When she heard it was worth the equivalent of $44,000, she took it off fast! And as she did… she dropped it on the floor, breaking it into two pieces. Yikes… One minute you feel happy and pretty… the next, you’re in debt for 44 grand! No wonder she passed out.


We’re almost to Friday!! Hope today is great!  Jennifer

Humans domesticated dogs… but cats domesticated themselves. The results of this new study show that cats, unlike dogs, decided when THEY wanted to curl up in a lap… and it took thousands of years.

A friend of mine turned me onto this web series that I’m fascinated with… it’s called “The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows” and it defines these newly invented words for strangely powerful emotions. We’ve all felt those emotions that we just couldn’t describe. But now, maybe we can…


When your last name is Swarovski, of course your wedding gown will have crystals. Check out Victoria Swarovski’s gorgeous wedding gown worth over a million dollars…covered in 500,000 crystals. And her red “welcome dinner” dress was almost as stunning!

The TSA is now asking passengers to unpack books and food in their carry-on luggage for extra security screenings. How have they been doing things all along if the x-rays can’t see through books?!

Will Ferrell kept things fairly vague when Seth Myers asked him about Mariah Carey’s cameo in his new film, The House. But after his interview, one of Will’s co-stars, Cedric Yarbrough, opened up on facebook and dropped the whole story of what went down. Mariah basically ruined an entire day of filming with her diva ways and she got cut from the final film.

Here’s a great business opportunity if you’re looking to get away from it all. ‘‘Mary’s Cottages’ is small group of cottages with a main house, on the Isle of Skye, off Scotland’s northwest coast. Live in the house, rent the cottages… the whole lot costs 1 ½ million dollars. What a bargain! Look how gorgeous this place is!
