Statues at the Olympics

There are three statues at the Olympic games that are turning heads.  They're wearing a helmet or bullet that covers their entire head...that's it...nothing more.  And they are anatomically correct.
The artist is from South Korea and says that the statues represent the human desire for a wonderful body, wealth, and honor.  Source: Yahoo News

On The List

There's a list of must-see roadside attractions in the US.  When traveling, I love to see things like that so I thought I'd check through the list.  Imagine my surprise to see that the giant 6-pack in La Crosse made the list.  I've only seen two of the attractions so I'm thinking there's a road trip in my future.  Source: Offbeat

Family Fest Helps The Hunger Task Force

Family Fest is February 25 at the LaCrosse Center.  It goes from 11am - 4pm this year.  There is so much fun to be had while you're there.  Bouncy houses, entertainment on the stage, lots of booths with ideas for family fun, and food for purchase.  Free Mt. Olympus water park passes, goody bags, and a chance to get Showtime tickets and win WWE tickets are some of the benefits of going.  And it's FREE admission.  We only ask for a donation of a non-perishable food item if possible.  All of the food will be given to the Hunger Task Force to help your neighbors in need.  Join us in helping the Hunger Task Force at Family Fest on February 25.  Family Fest

Where was Scooby Doo?

Three backpackers found themselves in high water.  They were found on top of their van which is painted like the Mystery Machine after flood waters partially submerged their vehicle overnight.  Rescuers said that it was a good thing that they didn't try to get to dry land themselves because there could be crocs in the water.  Maybe those darn kids needed Scooby Doo to help.  Source: UPI

He's Going to Pay

The Eagles fan who took a souvenir from the big game has agreed to pay for it to be replaced.  He stole his seat from the stadium.  Why would anyone do something like that?  I've heard about all of the damage done by Eagles fans but seriously, go home and do it there.  When you're in another city, be courteous and respectful.  Don't destroy or steal property.  He's been identified and has offered to pay for the repair plus labor.  It's going to cost him $125.  I think that's too small of a price to pay for what he did.  It's surprising how he got out of the stadium and through airport security with the seat but he did.  Source: Star Tribune

McDonald's French Fries

There's hope for balding people all over the world thanks to McDonald's French Fries.  An ingredient used in the fries has been found to regrow hair in mice.  The chemical dimethylpolysiloxane is used in the oil to keep it from splashing.  It's had hugely successful results regrowing 5,000 hair follicles simultaneously so the scientists have hope that it will be just as successful in humans.  Source:  New York Post
