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

baby bump

Jennifer Garner put rumors to rest about her baby bump.  She says that yes, she has one and it's here to stay but she's not pregnant.  It's from having three children so people just need to get used to it.  Her message is empowering and I hope more people pull away from the unrealistic goal of being a size 0.  She is an amazing woman!!  forever baby bump

UFO or hoax?

Video taken supposedly shows a UFO outside the window of a passenger jet flying over Seattle recently.  It's a short video and the only sounds in the background are passengers going about their business.  It never shows the plane window frame so there's nothing to prove that it was shot through the window of an aircraft.  What do you think?  UFO
