Mariah Carey has some advice for Lionel Richie when it comes to joining American Idol… don’t do it.

Don’t forget that the price of a Senior Lifetime National Parks pass is going up at the end of the month… so if you’re 62 or older, get yours now while it’s $10! And spread the word!

Be careful when buying safety glasses to view the eclipse… there are a lot of fakes out there. NASA can help. They have a whole section of their website dedicated to safely viewing the eclipse, including tips on what to look for when buying safety glasses. I got mine here –

If you’re into the avocado everything craze… here’s a recipe for avocado ice cream you might want to try.

They had $3000 worth of their stuff stolen but they can’t file a police report because of the “free stuff” yard sale sign they had out at the curb.


Do you think cutting the amount of nicotine in cigarettes would help more people quit smoking? The FDA does.

TRL is coming back… but Carson Daly isn’t part of the plan. The new show will have 5 rotating co-hosts and airs in October on MTV.

Be careful if you’re one of those people who works out REALLY hard… if you notice soreness, swollen muscles, stiffness and nausea, get to the doctor right away! You might have Rhabdomyolysis.

There’s a little black spot on the sun today (ok, actually it’s a pretty big one.) sunspot

Dr. Amanda Hess is one dedicated doctor. While she was in labor, she went down the hall and helped one of her patients deliver… then went back to her room and had her own baby.

Have a great Monday, Wilde Ones!!  Jennifer
