She's done it again.

Jennifer Garner just gets more amazing every time I hear her speak.  This time she accepted an award from Elle Magazine and did it while eating pizza.  She then went on to say that it's sad that women have to have a special event when the men's event is everyday in Hollywood.  And get rid of skinny jeans and crop tops for everyone because they don't look good on anyone.  She is wonderful.  Jennifer

twins meet for the first time

Samantha and Anais didn't really need the DNA test to know they were twins.  They had put the facts together after discovering each other on facebook.  There's now a book and a movie about finding each other at age 25.  And even though their birth mother is not interested in being a part of their lives, they are so happy to have found each other.  twins separated at birth

bullied for hair cut

She's 10 and wanted to donate her hair to Wigs for Kids.  So Jetta went to get her hair cut short and the bullying started.  She was picked on for wanting to be a boy.  Now she's found support on facebook with a page called "Stand With Jetta."  Unfortunately, the school administration wasn't much help and Jetta is now out of classes and her mother is looking for alternate schools.  bullied

cold night

There's a hotel in Sweden that is rebuilt every year.  In November and December the ice hotel in Sweden is constructed from ice and snice (snow ice).  Rooms rent for $236 per night and come complete with an ice bed and all of the ice furnishings.  You can also get an igloo built to your specifications for $231,000.  The hotel rents rooms until it melts in the spring.  cold room

basketball dreams

Lauren Hill's dream is to play on a college basketball team.  Her first game was scheduled for November 15 but her parents made a special request of the coach.  They wanted him to do everything in his power to move that date closer.  Lauren has been diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor and may not be alive to see her first game.  The coach has managed to get a waiver on a rule, get the other team to agree, and has moved the game to November 2.  This helps but not by much.  Lauren is not doing well and may not even make it that long.  But she's determined to give her best try so that she can at least wear the jersey and hit the court for a bit of the game.  dream

wrong house--wrong lot?

A million dollar home was recently built in Florida.  It's got a great ocean view and the owners are very pleased with their design.  The problem?  It's built on the lot next door.  The lot was surveyed twice and marked so the builder went ahead with the construction.  Now it looks like it will go to court to figure out what to do with the mix-up.  on the wrong lot
