Electric trains are quiet… and this lady ignored the lights and didn’t even look both ways before crossing. She’s lucky to be alive. (At least she wasn’t texting…)

Check out this amazing watch. The initial run will only produce 8 of them…at a price of around $700,000 each. #TechThisOut

I’m not sure why this cat owner has a wig box for her cat… but it is entertaining! #nationalpetday

I’m sad that Patrick Stewart and his wife couldn’t adopt Ginger because of the “dangerous breed” laws in the UK but I’m grateful for the time and energy he’s giving to raise awareness about these sweet dogs who wind up in the dog fighting industry. Let’s shut it down!

Happy Friday! Have a great weekend!

The Wilde Ride for 04/06/17

Marie Robinson was visiting the grave of her 4-year-old son Jack who died of brain cancer and a little robin flew over to her and perched on her finger. Perhaps a sign from her own little Robinson that he’s OK on the other side… I’m in tears!

Pepsi is pulling their controversial ad with Kendall Jenner saying “Clearly we missed the mark, and we apologize. We did not intend to make light of any serious issue.”

Finally… a hospital gown that covers your butt!

What a difference 6 seconds make! This guy ran 100 miles and was disqualified from the marathon because he just missed the cut off time of 60 hours. Such a bummer!

I hope your Thursday rocks hard! Jennifer
