NASCAR race excitement
Sept. 2, 2014 8:07 am

There's always some sort of excitement going on at a NASCAR race.  But Sunday it was something that is very rarely seen.  At first it was announced that a cat had run across the track.  It was even caught on camera from Kevin Harvick's onboard camera.  He narrowly misses the animal as it runs in front of him.  It was later discovered that the "cat" was actually a squirrel.  The critter escaped unharmed and the race went on.  Such is the unpredictable nature of a NASCAR race.  squirrel video

American Ninja Warrior
Sept. 2, 2014 8:02 am

American Ninja Warrior is a show on NBC about an extremely challenging obstacle course.  Only the best are able to make it through.  A woman had never done it until Kacy Catanzaro came along.  She was relatively unknown even though she competed in the male dominated sport for two years.  But since she was the first female to ever make it into and complete the finals course, her name is now very well known.  ANW

Hello Kitty
Aug. 29, 2014 5:35 am

She's so cute but she's not a cat.  This revelation was made on August 27.  Professor Christine R. Yano sent a script for an exhibition to Sanrio.  They corrected her and said, "Hello Kitty is not a cat. She's a cartoon character. She is a little girl. She is a friend. But she is not a cat. She's never depicted on all fours. She walks and sits like a two-legged creature."        

           Gasp!  I always thought she was a cat and so does Josh Groban among others.  At least now we know the truth lol.  Hello Kitty

Monkey and kitten relationship
Aug. 28, 2014 5:03 am

At Monkey Forest Park in the Ubud region of Bali, a monkey was photographed cradling a kitten.  A long-tailed macaque monkey looks to be best friends with the ginger kitten.  Other monkeys seem to be fine with the feline hanging around as well.  inter-species relationship

How much would you pay for a grill?
Aug. 27, 2014 7:46 am

How about $17,695.  Is any grill worth that?  It has all the perks that any grill master could want but at that price, I'd rather cook on my stove.  That much money would buy a really nice car.  So unless you've got almost $18,000 to just toss at a grill, my guess is that you won't be buying it either.  expensive grill

Aug. 27, 2014 5:28 am

Without regard to his own safety, USC cornerback Josh Shaw jumped from a second story balcony to save his nephew.  Josh saw that his nephew was having difficulty in a pool, and because the nephew can't swim, Josh knew he had to do something.  So he jumped; landing on the concrete.  He sprained both ankles and still managed to get himself to the pool and rescue the boy.  He even says that he would do it again if he saw any child in trouble.  True hero

Large parking sign
Aug. 26, 2014 7:20 am

A parking sign in Culver City near Los Angeles takes up 15 feet of vertical space and is extremely confusing.  The mayor was notified and promised to fix the problem right away.  Even though half the signs were removed, there are still a lot of restrictions that require plenty of signs.  ridiculous parking sign

food at lambeau
Aug. 24, 2014 6:47 am

Lambeau Field has a donut ice cream sandwich, Bratchos (brats, cheese, and chips), and newly added Horse Collar.  This treat is a 22 inch kielbasa covered in cheese and fried sauerkraut.

It will sell for $20 and is meant for two people.  Minus the sauerkraut--then it sounds good to me. new food at lambeau

This rubber ducky is not going to fit in your bathtub.  It's 61 feet tall and has entered the L.A. Port.  It's visiting during the Tall Ships Festival.  large rubber duck

NO Ketchup?
Aug. 22, 2014 6:38 am

What is this nonsense of which you speak?  I love my ketchup...sometimes too much.  But I have to have it for most meats and my french fries.  There's a restaurant in Fort Myers, Florida that refuses to serve ketchup to anyone over the age of 10.  They expect diners to trust them on the taste of their food.  I would pass on this place.  eating without ketchup

New Scooby Doo Movie
Aug. 21, 2014 7:18 am

Daphne is cursed in the new Scooby Doo movie.  She's devastated because she goes from a size 2 to a size 8...wait...what?  How dare the writers use a body size to denote a curse?  What were they thinking?  It's not bad enough that women have been bombarded with images that cause self-hate, now it's in a cartoon as well?  Some that have seen the movie are saying that it's a good thing because Daphne learns that she is being shallow and Fred says that she is always beautiful to him. How can that be a good thing?  It's still weight bashing and her self worth is tied into how her boyfriend feels about her.  And I still have a problem with her "curse."  I'm not a size 8, haven't been since Middle School, and I'm quite sure I never will be again.  And I think it's a very bad idea to give young girls the thought that gaining weight is a curse.  bad movie idea
Daphne's "curse"

wedding jitters
Aug. 20, 2014 7:39 am

Most people get a little bit of cold feet when it gets close to their wedding.  But one groom took it to the extreme.  He faked his own death just to get out of going to the alter.  He called pretending to be his "dad" and told his finace that "his son" had been depressed and threw himself in front of a car ending his life.  When the bride-to-be called to offer condolences to his mother, she found out that he was alive and well.  I'm thinking the bride is lucky that she found out what a jerk this guy is before they got married.  cold feet

adopting a dolphin
Aug. 19, 2014 7:34 am

To most of us, a dolphin is a dolphin, but there are differences.  So when one species adopts another, it's a rare event.  Kiwi, a bottlenose dolphin, has been seen nursing an abandoned common dolphin who has been named Pee Wee.  Kiwi lost her own calf when she became stuck in the mud.  She was rescued and 5 years later adopted Pee Wee.  adoption

Alligator at school
Aug. 17, 2014 7:41 am

A 7-foot alligator decided to make an appearance at a Katy, Texas school.  It was blocking the front doors when an employee showed up.  The police were called to remove the critter and all are hoping that it doesn't come back.  visitor

Fox with dog's toy
Aug. 16, 2014 7:33 am

A dog left his toy outside and had to watch as another animal played with it.  A fox found the toy and seems to be having a blast with it.  The fox throws the toy and then runs to pick it up again.  Cute video

Aug. 15, 2014 5:07 am

One woman's daughters were honoring her wishes when they wrote her obituary.  It starts with "Ding Dong The Witch is Dead."  She loved the movie, Wizard of Oz, so much that she was even buried with ruby slippers on her feet.  witch obit

miracle girl
Aug. 14, 2014 6:59 am

A 3-year-old girl survived 11 days in the forest in Siberia thanks to her dog.  Her rescue was led by her dog as well.  He left her side two days before she was found and went back to their village.  At that point, hopes of finding her dimmed but the dog led rescuers right to her.  She's being called the miracle girl.  found

Two-headed dolphin
Aug. 14, 2014 5:22 am

A 3.2 foot two-headed dolphin carcass washed ashore in Turkey.  The man who saw it wash up was at first thinking that his eyes were playing tricks on him and then he was a little freaked out. I'm thinking "freaked out" is a good description of how I would be.  But apparently it's something that can occur in all animals including humans.  dolphin

Aug. 13, 2014 7:02 am

In New Zealand, McDonald's purchased property that included a plane.  It's a Douglas DC-3 which doesn't have an engine and can't fly.  McDonald's has converted it into a 20 seat restaurant where diners can visit the original cockpit.  Entrance is gained through a stairway at the tail of the plane.  Fly with McDonald's

Car lovers dream
Aug. 12, 2014 5:33 am
