A Seattle man says by the time he read the wordy sign in a school zone it was too late to slow down… and a judge just agreed with himand threw out his speeding ticket.
What do you think? Is this sign “too wordy”?
The Royal Canadian Mint has just put out what is believed to be the first glow-in-the-dark coin ever minted.The two-dollar coin was created to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Canada’s confederation and it features two people paddling a canoe beneath the northern lights. And the aurora borealis part of the design is made with luminescent ink so it glows in the dark! How cool!
New evidence is leading researchers to believe that Amelia Earhart and her navigator, Fred Noonan, did not die in a plane crash but instead died in the custody of the Japanese after being captured. A newly discovered photo, along with some other evidence, is being featured in a new special called “Amelia Earhart: The Lost Evidence” which airs Sunday on the History Channel.
It’s going to be one of the worst tick seasons ever… so make sure you check your dogs every day (cats too, if they spend time outdoors) and if you notice signs of lethargy, not eating well or the start of paralysis, it could be the result of a tick bite – get them to the vet right away.
This is awesome. When her friend posted a throwback photo of her very 90’s weddingand apologized to the bridesmaids for the ugly dresses, Heidi Mann decided to prove that she was still getting good use out of her dress. She had her kids take photos of her wearing it doing all kinds of everyday thing… like watering the flowers, doing laundry and chilling on the couch with her tablet.
The latest instagram trend is “butts against landscapes“… Cheeky Exploits started the trend… just go to a beautiful setting and then drop your drawers and have a friend take a picture. I’m usually out with the dog and he’s horrible with a camera. I think I’m gonna need a selfie stick and a rear view mirror to take these… 😉
So sad to see that Prince’s former drummer (of 12 years) John Blackwell died. He was diagnosed with brain tumors while on tour in Japan and had gone through more than one operation for them. On the GoFundMe page that was set up for his medical expenses, his wife posted an update less than a week ago about him moving to a rehab facility to start down a long road of recovery, so this is obviously not the outcome they were expecting. If you’d like to donate to his family, here’s the link.
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?
Some new emojis are coming! We’ll see these later on this year…
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
