Newlyweds are spending half the time on their honeymoon that they used to. In years gone by, just-married couples enjoyed a lengthy two weeks in each
other's company. Now, due to work commitments and couples increasingly paying for their own weddings -- many are making cut backs after their big
day. Only a third of newlyweds will have a two-week break after tying the knot. Most couples are opting for a shorter more affordable break over a
weekend or just a week.
The ladies in Japan are going crazy for a handsome creature! It's a Gorilla at theHigashiyama Zoo and Botanical Gardens in Nagoya, Japan. Shabani is the Gorilla's name and he even has a "sexy" pose. Take a look yourself...what do you think? Read full story here.
For burger chain "Wayback Burgers", it started out as an April Fools Joke... An Oreo Cricket Milkshake. Okay so there's not really crickets swimming around in the ice cream... just chocolate-flavored Cricket Powder (It's Peruvian and packed with protein). CNBC reports that the response to the joke was so positive, Wayback actually tested it out in some stores!
"We had it for two hours. There were people lined up to try it," said John Eucalitto, president at Wayback Burgers
The fast casual burger chain is also launching a jerky milkshake with barbeque, maple syrup and hickory spice flavors that comes with one or two Slim Jim sticks—depending on the size of the milkshake.
The current concoction is the result of testing about 20 to 30 different variations with five different flavors of cricket powder. In recent years, crickets have generated buzz as a high-protein alternative to animal sources, which create a larger carbon footprint than their insect alternatives. The powder itself is not strong tasting, says Eucalitto, adding he thinks the shake tastes "great."
Customers can also choose to add the protein powder to another shake if they are not in an Oreo mood.
While the shakes are available from the beginning of July to the end of September, they could become a permanent menu item at the chain, which has more than 100 locations domestically and internationally in Argentina.

The annual World's Ugliest Dog pageant went down in Petaluma, California on Friday. And the winner is certainly deserving . . . although she's definitely attractive in her own unique way.
This year's winner is a 10-year-old mixed breed dog from Loxahatchee, Florida named Quasi Modo. She has several birth defects that make her completely hunchbacked . . . and she looks more like a hyena than a dog.
She beat out 26 other dogs in categories like unusual attributes, raw ugliness, shocking first impression, and personality.
Her owners get a $1,500 prize.
Here's pics of Quasi Modo and the other contestants:
Last Friday (April 26), Dierks Bentley was the Summer Concert guest on ABC's "Good Morning America". No surprise, he PACKED central park for the early-morning concert! The set that was broadcast started out with his number-one single "I Hold On" before brigning out tourmates Maddie and Tae to join him for "Free and Easy (Down The Road I Go)" before ending the broadcast with his current single "Riser" (which you can currently hear only on BOB95!)
Now, because it was Friday and chances are you were at work or in the car listenning to Chris, John and Jane on BOB95, Here's Dierks, Maddie and Tae performing "Free and Easy" on GMA!

Engineers at Lexus say they've created a functioning Hoverboad! It uses magnets and superconductors....There is a video about it but they say they will release more details on October 21st, which is the date Marty McFly went to in Back To The Future Part two.
Chris Ring is a Navy veteran who is up for a big challange as part of a group called "Legacies Alive", a group that honors fallen American soldiers. June 6, he jumped into Lake Itasca, the headwaters of the Mississippi river, and is currently attempting to swin the entire legnth of the river! As I am writing this post, Chris is 18 days into his swim (and just passed through my hometown of Grand Rapids!) For the record, the Mississippi River is 2,552 MILES long. Chris expects to swim an average of 14 miles per day setting his finish in New Orleans, LA for sometime around Decemeber 12 (if I calculated that correctly!)
Now if Mr. Ring can successfully compelete the challange, he will be the FIRST Amercian to do so. Martin Strel of Solvenia did the swim back in 2002.
Check out this link for more information about this AMAZING challange http://legaciesalive.com/swim-for-their-sacrifice/ and also see the video below (skip to about 1:32). Let's hope he can complete the challange by swimming all the way to New Orleans!
Are you a fan of Whole Foods? Even if here in Fargo Moorhead doesn't have one they are down in the Twin Cities area and I know many people frequent them and bring stuff back home with them. If you are one of these people you might want to be aware of some things.
Whole Foods in NYC is under investigation. A year after it was forced to pay $800,000 for overcharging California residents, the grocery store chain is now the target of an NYC investigation of the same practice. During a sting operation in the fall of 2014, NYC investigators weighed 80 different types of food items at eight different NYC locations. They found they all had inaccurate labels and that customers were often being overcharged, the Daily News reported.
Kenny Chesney played Lambeau Field in Green Bay recently and the cops at the home of the Packers were kept very busy with lots of drunken fans and misbehavior! Lot's of arrests....lots of people kicked out of the concert. But it was an entertaining night to listen to the police scanner. Deadspin.com took the audio of the police scanner and set it to Kenny Chesney music...hilarious!
You know when that wax figure looks a little too... lifelike? Well, the Terminator did just that at Madame Taussads Wax Museum in Hollywood.
Unsuspecting tourists would stand next to him to pose for photos, only to scream in surprise when he would suddenly move or speak.
Schwarzenegger took his act out onto Hollywood Boulevard, posing for photos with fans, visiting his footprints outside the TCL Chinese Theatre (better known as Grauman's Chinese Theatre), and even going head-to-head with another Terminator to see who could best deliver his trademark line, "I'll be back."
The actor posted video of his outing to YouTube, where it has received more than 10 million views in just two days. Check it out Below!
Ah, what most of us would give to be a kid again! Remember summer camp anyone? Now there's Camp Throwback in Ohio where ADULTS get to do all of their favorite childhood debauchery all over again from making friendship braclets, compete in watermellon eating contests, engage in a Drunk Field Day, do hangover yoga and sober archery! There's just one rule- NO TALKING ABOUT WORK!
It's actually a growing trend to gauge summer camps twords grown-ups, with similar programs appearing near Chicago, New York and LA.
Like many kids, Tichauer spent boyhood summers at sleep-away camp, where he forged happy memories and lifelong friendships. When he turned 30, he found himself reminiscing about those days.
"I thought, 'Wouldn't it be hilarious if we rented out a sleep-away camp and invited our friends,'" Tichauer said. "We could play all the activities like we did as kids ... and maybe party at night. At the end of your stay, "you go back to your normal setting and have great new friends across many different industries and walks of life," he said."
During all four days of activities, the camp provides everything -- except alcohol. It's BYOB.
A photo posted on the camp Facebook page shows a sign pointing the way to the archery range. "Sober? Archery" the sign reads.
On Drunk Field Day, about a dozen 10-person cabins compete in dodgeball, watermelon-eating and a three-legged race. Drinking, "which is optional, makes it a bit more 'adult,'"
My only question is... Where do I sign up?!?!?

Niagara Bottling is recalling its bottled water products after one of its spring sources was contaminated with E. coli. The company is urging customers to avoid drinking the water without boiling it first. The water should be boiled for one minute and then cooled. While it was not immediatley clear how widely the products were distributed, several major supermarket chains with stores across the northeast issued releases saying they had carried the water. The contaminated water was sold under the following brand names:
How do you feel about the Treasury Department wanting to put a woman on the $10 bill by the year 2020 and taking off Alexander Hamilton the Father of the U.S. Treasury? Read on what many are saying about it.
The U.S. Treasury Department's decision to feature a woman on the $10 bill has led to a vibrant debate about Alexander Hamilton's role in the currency word, and why Andrew Jackson remains on the $20 bill.
This has danger written all over it... and I think that's why I like it!
A friend of mine who lives in Texas posted about this new attraction at the Waco Cable Park called the "Royal Flush". It's three waterslides that at the very end, instead of dumping you in the pool, angle up to thrust you in the air. That's right, go airborne to so a backflip, cannonball, you name it!
Just check out this video- I mean there's a guy who rides his bikedown the thing like some daredevil- AWESOME! Right?
It took 66 surfers on a board larger than life to beak the world record of most surfers on a board at one time. It happened last week in Huntington Beach, CA where 66 surf champions (No newbies here!) took to a 42 foot board riding a wave in the Pacific Ocean for 12 seconds.
I know what you're thinking... There's actualy a record for the most people on a surf board? Yup! And these 66 shattered what 47 surfers did for 10 seconds in Australia about a decade ago.
As for that 42 food custom surf board, Guinness says it will take a few days to determine if that 1,300 pound board is a record holder itself.
In the meantime, Hang Ten... er... Hang 660?

Yes, yes, we were all looking forward to a larger than life slip-n-slide to come to town this August to unite the community on what we hoped would be a hot sunny day. However, KVLY-TV reports that Slide The City will not be happening in Fargo this summer.
"Its only because Fargo only has one adequate hill and that hill is the one on Broadway downtown but its only 300 feet long," says Slide the
City Event Director, Scott Ward. "We thought about it, and just not sure we can give the value for a 300 foot long slide. We may consider it for next year but this year we don't feel its right."
Couldn't find a hill big enough in FARGO? Shocker.

Okay, there have been plenty of disgusting fast food hoaxes over the years (the finger in the Wendy's chili anyone?) But now a Kentucky Fried Chicken customer in Calafornia claims that the restaurant tried serving her a rat. Devorise Dixon originally though what he recieved was an oddly shaped chicken breast but upon closer inspection insisted it was indeed a rodent, tail and all.
KFC management says there was no evidence to support the man's claim; but declined to comment on what the piece of food was.
Now, the customer hasn't cut the piece of whatever it is open to see, but many social media users are declaring the item a oddly shaped piece of chicken. The pictures are below. What do YOU say it is?
Don't get me wrong... Graduations are great! It's just that they are often long and incredibly boring. Not the case at Portsmouth High School in New Hampshire. Collin Yost, the commensement speaker ended his speech saying "sometimes you just gotta shake it off" which prompted the Taylor Swift song by the same name to start playing. Yost started dancing his way back to his seat; but it's what happened next that makes this so awesome!
Are YOU smarter than a Hong Kong first grader? Logic puzzle from Chinese primary school exam stumps adults but 6-year-olds can crack it in just 20 seconds
The test shows a car parked in a lot with the number of its space obscured. The reader is then asked to work out the number of the parking space
Six-year-olds can apparently complete the question in 20 seconds....But for adults - who think it through more - it can leave them stumped
The puzzle can only be solved if you can imagine yourself as the driver approaching the parking spot numbers. Children have no problem solving this puzzle because their minds are more flexible in this way.
Now this is a story all about how... Country stars can't rap.
Seriously. "Mashable" went to the CMT Awards last week and asked Carrie Underwood, Hunter Hayes, Frankie Ballard and others if they could rap the theme song to Will Smith's sitcom "The Fresh Prince of Bel Air". What did we learn? Well, Hunter Hayes knew little (but has mad beat boxing skills), Carrie did pretty well but WHO stole the show?
If you were watching last week's CMT Awards, you saw Carrie Underwood on television for the first time since she had her baby, Isaiah, a few months back. Yup, she had a perfectly slim, post-baby body which made people wonder how she shed the baby weight so quickly.
Carrie admitted to the television netowrk "E!" that she was not aboe to originally get back to the gym and work out because "I ended up having to have a ceserian- blah, blah, blah, too much information". She continued to admit to "E!" that she instead altered her diet (without going into any more detail) and admits that now back on tour and with a baby working out happens "...where I can, when I can pretty much".
The newest trend in Japan is tiny underwear you put on the bottom of your water bottle. You're not walking around naked, so why would your water bottle be exposed to everyone's prying eyes? That *seems* to be the logic behind these bottle panties, launched in Japan in late May by novelty goods producer Kitan Club.

CARRIE UNDERWOOD dominated last night's "CMT Music Awards". "Something In The Water" won Video of the Year and Best Female Video. And she shared Collaborative Video of the Year with MIRANDA LAMBERT for "Somethin' Bad".
She was even all over the opening monologue when cohosts ERIN ANDREWS and BRITTANY SNOW did a running gag about Erin's obsession with her. She also killed it on the red carpet some three months after having a baby.
The big musical opening featured LADY ANTEBELLUM and electronic dance music artist ZEDD. They did a mashup of Lady A's "Long Stretch of Love" and Zedd's "Beautiful Now". The result? A lot of energy, which isn't a bad way to start a show.
The CMTs are more about performances than awards, and several really stood out. It's been 10 years since REBA MCENTIREperformed on the CMTs and she rocked her song "Going Out Like That".
Does the ZAC BROWN BAND ever disappoint? No. They performed "Homegrown" and it was solid.
You know how ERIC CHURCH usually tears the room apart? Not this year. Instead, he did one better with a stripped-down performance of "Like A Wrecking Ball".
Hands down the most entertaining performance of the night was JAKE OWEN who was lowered to the stage on an inflatable mattress to perform "Real Life". A video of the performance is below.
Here's your complete list of last night's winners . . .
• Video of the Year: "Something In The Water", Carrie Underwood
• Male Video of the Year: "Play It Again", Luke Bryan
• Female Video of the Year: "Something In The Water", Carrie Underwood
• Group Video of the Year: "Bartender", Lady Antebellum
• Duo Video of the Year: "Dirt", Florida Georgia Line
• Collaborative Video of the Year: "Somethin' Bad", Miranda Lambert featuring Carrie Underwood
• CMT Performance of the Year: "Turn The Page" . . . Jason Aldean and Bob Seger on "CMT Crossroads"
• Breakthrough Video of the Year: "Leave The Night On", Sam Hunt
A number of hotels in Ireland and the United Kingdom think not, and are offering "digital detox" packages to help guests ditch the iPhone and take in the sights.
The practice of "digital detoxing" -- abandoning smartphones, tablets, the Internet, and other electronic distractions for a period of time -- has gained in popularity in recent years, as the average U.S. consumer now spends 60 hours a week consuming content across devices, according to a 2014 Nielsen study.
Show stopping 6-year-old Johanna Colon brought down the house with her performance to Aretha Franklin's "R-E-S-P-E-C-T" at her dance recital in North Carolina on Saturday, but dad Carlos Colon tells Yahoo Parenting that her real passion is becoming a âdancing cooking teacher.â
The first step to getting attention when you're online dating is to actually log on. No kidding—I've known several friends who've redefined passivity when it comes to dating sites, and won't log on to their account unless they get notified of a message they've received via email. Don't do that.
Logging on frequently doesn't just boost your profile to the top (especially when people search for users who've been "online" recently), it lets your potential matches know that you're actually interested in dating. The only thing that has ever stopped me from messaging an awesome-seeming guy, is seeing that he hasn't looked at his profile in two weeks. If you don't have time to sign in, you probably don't have time for me. Or anyone. (But especially me.)
Another way to make impressions easily is to update your profile. The more you switch things up, the higher your prof will appear in your potential match's list of his or her maybe-matches. Technology, man… it's wild. Updating can mean anything from adding a new picture to changing a line in your bio; it doesn't really matter.
While we're on the subject, don't date your pictures. If the best non-selfie photo you have of yourself is from "summer '11," it doesn't make you look too cool for cameras… it makes you look boring and possibly friendless. Sorry.
Smile in your pics.
This sounds obvious, but there are a LOT of girls (and guys) in this world who seem to subscribe to the idea that smiling isn't sexy. I blame the Kardashians. Yes, even you, Caitlyn.
But human beings are hardwired to smile when we're happy; it's a natural reaction. Did you see how cute the Olsens looked at the CFDA Awards?? My point exactly. People like being around other people who are happy.
Not only will you look cuter smiling, but there's also this: Even if an interested party can't think of anything else to say to you about your profile or pictures, he or she will still be able to message you and say, "You have a great smile." And you could have the worst smile in the world! But they'll still be able to say that.
Something you won't ever see in a message? "Wow, I love your serious, non-expressive face!" Or, "Sweet prune lips!"
So… yeah! You should smile.
Be a little silly.
On most online dating sites, there's a section on your profile that asks you to fill out what you want in a partner, called "who I'm looking for" or "you should message me if," or something of that ilk. A lot of people write stuff like, I'm looking for my best friend, a partner in crime, someone I click with, or worst of all, "You should message me if… you want to." But they're doing it so, so wrong.
As nice as those things are, EVERYONE's looking for them—and therefore, it's a wasted opportunity to make an impression on the person viewing your profile.
Instead of being generic, go with something that's very specific and a little ridiculous. On my own profile, I wrote that a dude should message me if he "prefers the aisle seat"—which, as you've probably inferred, means that I only like the window seat on planes, busses, and… spaceships. (Though someone recently pointed out to me that, on most commercial flights, that probably means I like the middle seat. Womp.)
It might sound silly, but I can't even explain how many messages I get from men telling me they're "definitely aisle seat guys." It's an easy intro, and one they don't have to think too hard about making. Others start by saying, "Aisle seats suck; the window seat's way better!" Those are people I do not reply to. HA!
A similar strategy might involve gummy bear colors or some other generally inoffensive thing that people have strong opinions about, like your favorite Muppet or which OCcharacter gave you the hots (Seth).
Show a hint of skin.
Like Beyonce says, "If you've got it, flaunt it." This one might be a little controversial, but… here's the deal: IT WORKS.
I had been on OKCupid for around three years when I first decided to try out the ole boobs-in-the-profile-pic thing. (While I'm not always the most conservative dresser, I'm certainly not what you'd call an exhibitionist. A former co-worker once described my style as resembling "an eight-year-old on a yacht.") I chose a photo of me on a sailboat—not a yacht, mind you—wearing a body-con dress with some cleavage, for good measure. As far as social situations go, there are few as wholesome as sailing, so in my opinion, that cancels out the bosoms a little bit.
Also, I'm smiling a legit smile, in which teeth are very much present. Life's all about balance, you know?
Prior to switching my photo (which, before, was of me jumping in a sundress), I'd be lucky to get one or two messages a day. But as soon as I updated it, the date requests started FLOODING in. I'm talking 15 to 20 a day, for months.
The most interesting part? The vast majority of the messages I got were NOT creepy in nature. Because none of my other pictures were revealing, I didn't come off as looking trashy or begging for attention. My theory (and I'm not a scientist so, take from this what you will) is that most of the guys who clicked my profile because of my cleavage, did so almost subliminally.
Of course, I'll occasionally get a "Wow I love your curves," which skeeves me out as much as the next girl. But more than any other physical feature, they compliment me on my freckles. Which is good! Though I should probably start wearing sunscreen more.
Message them first.
The number one most sure-fire way to get someone you're interested in to message you on a dating site is… to just message him or her first! (No, this wasn't a countdown, but it just seemed more dramatic this way.)
In the golden age of non-line dating, verbally-inferior people could just keep walking by the object of their affection at a bar, smizing and pretending to laugh about something hilaaarious their friend had just said. But in modern times, when many of us prefer staying in and watching Netflix on Friday nights instead of getting jiggy in da club, that won't cut it.
Actually, visiting someone's profile repeatedly, hoping he or she will get the hint and message you, can come off as super creepy. I actually just blocked a guy who was looking at my profile every two hours for DAYS and never actually messaged me. It was way too weird. (Also, his info bragged about how he'd never seen The Wire and that isn't really something to be proud of.)
So send them a message. They might be a little shy, they might not check the list of people who've visited their profile. Maybe they rarely log on, and they only get notifications about messages through their email. Either way, the best way to let someone know that you definitely won't turn them down for a date or meet up or what have you is to just take initiative and get in there first (there = their inbox).

Kevin Strahle is a big fan of Crystal Pepsi...He has started a campaign to bring it back, and he has 1.2 million followers on board. They started calling the Pepsi hotline and flooding their Instagram with comments. He is even puting money together for billboards. Pepsi responded to him with a letter saying.."We definitely hear you and your followers, and we think you'll be happy with what's in store. Stay tuned" Sounds like it may be back soon!
Praise be to Taco Bell! e heard the rumors a couple months back that Taco Bell was testing out a Cap'N Crunch cereal product in their stors, and those testers came through for all of us! According to NBC "Today", starting July 2 nationwide, you can buy "Cap'n Crunch Delight" which is basically those cinnabon balls they already sell except instead of the cinnabon coating on the little creme filled donuts, they will be druged in a vat of Cap'n Crunch Crunchberry dust.
You'll be able to buy them in packs of 2 ($1.00), 4 ($1.69) or 12 ($4.49) in all Taco Bell locations across the nation.
And you'll probably see Ian camping out on July 1 waiting for these little calorie bombs...
One of my favorite episodes of Everybody Loves Raymond was "The Wallpaper". It was the episode where Ray's parents (who lived across the street) backed their car though the front door of Ray and Deborah's house. That was the first thing I thought of when I read this story.
Walter Thomas, of Illinois is 91 years old admits that it's time to start tackling some of the things on his bucket list. He told his family that one of the things he always wants to do was back his car through the garage door. Granddaughter Becky Goers says "He always wondered if the door would pop off or if the frame would come down with it". Well, with the help of the local Sheriff's department accident reconstruction team, they made it happen- including with an old car that was set for the junkyard anyways!
Last week, family members gathered around the garage was Thomas put on a helmet and with his grandson riding shotgun, backed a car straight through the garage door. The local newspaper notes that the door was smashed but Thomas' questions was answered with the frame staying intact. It's not clear what else is on Mr. Thomas' bucket list, but when you get the right people involved, even the wildest of items can be crossed off!
It's the third-smallest post office in America - actually, its an old tool shed that can only hold three customers at a time - but it works around-the-clock stamping and sending envelopes from around the world. Why?
Because this tiny 110 square feet shack is in a town called Bridal Veil, and in the interest of planning the perfect wedding, detail is everything. For that reason, brides all across America - and from as far as Korea and Australia - are flocking to the Oregon municipality just to be able to have 'Bridal Veil' as the postage stamp on their wedding invitations.
In the Dallas suburb of Plano, TX, there is a small business called "Amazeballs". Inside, you will find a rather unique treat called "Bacon Roses". Yes, they are exactly what the name implies- roses made from BACON!
Creator Meredith Browning says that the creation was an idea for her father who is a diabetic, and that the roses took four years to perfect in finding the right type of bacon. The bacon itself is edible and attached to a wooden stem covered in an FDA-Approved paint.
"We had to use a specific width bacon, we had to use a specific type of bacon and we had to develop a specific process," Browning explains.
That specific process leads to a simple warning from Browning- Do not try making Bacon Roses at home! "You could end up burning the entire bottom of your oven," she says.
The bacon rose bouquets arrive vacuum sealed and can last two weeks in there. Once you open them, they need to be eaten or refrigerated within 24 hours.

You know the age old saying "don't judge a book by it's cover"? This story is a great example why no one should EVER judge anyone. You don't know the full story. I bet the people who bullied this little boy are rethinking everything they ever said. Truly an inspiring young man!

Not going to lie it bothers me a lot what #10 is and that is definitely NOT going to be one of my "ultimate life experiences" then again this survey comes from Europe so you can pretty much take it with a grain of salt!
A new survey asked people if they were living life to the fullest, and only about one in five said yes. So here's what people from London want as their "ultimate life experiences" to really feel as though they are living. Check 'em out . . .
As heard on Chris, John & Jane...Chris Young was actually (sort of) complaining about making this video!!! What a poor, poor, poor guy. It must be REALLY tough to go to work and do that! Makes it so hard to get out of bed in the morning...(insert sarc mark here!)
It's not easy making out with a beautiful actress in her underwear while the camera's rolling. Just ask CHRIS YOUNG who was forced to do that in his "I'm Comin' Over" video.
He says, quote, "I mean, you're standing in a room and there's a bunch of people with cameras and lights and they're telling you which way to turn and giving you direction while you're making out with somebody."
His fix for that is to have a team around him that he can trust. Quote, "It has potential to be really weird, but it [hasn't] because everybody I've worked with in videos has been really great."
He also knows the day will come when he has to step away from the hot young starlet, just like BLAKE SHELTON did after marrying MIRANDA LAMBERT. Chris reveals how Blake uses that excuse to get out of spending time on the set.
Quote, "He loves not being the lead in his videos because he's like, 'All I have to do is show up, sing a couple of times and leave.'"
Married life isn't quite the same as single life. And while most people eventually surrender to it . . . the change can be awfully SEVERE at first.
A guy named Tim K. in Wilmington, Delaware is feeling that pain.
A few days ago, Tim posted an ad on Craigslist selling his almost new set of golf clubs for $500. Why?
Quote, "I'm only selling them because I got married a year ago and my wife no longer lets me play golf. Actually she doesn't let me do anything fun. I'd like to sell them to a single guy who has no intention of ever getting married."
As for the price, it's negotiable. Quote, "Looking to get $500, but realistically it doesn't matter how much they sell for since the money will go toward buying my wife more useless [crap]."
Once the ad started going viral yesterday, Tim deleted it . . . probably because he was afraid his wife would find out about it. Then again, we kind of get the feeling that's what he secretly WANTED.
Here's a screenshot of the ad before it was deleted...
As much as we'd all like to point at a random spot on a map and decide to live there, relocating is unfortunately never that easy. And it shouldn't be. We all have different needs to evaluate before packing the dishes. For some of us, cost of living and tax burden are the most important factors. For others, it's education standards, health care quality or all of the above. But whatever our motivations for moving, safety should always rank among our top priorities when comparing places to live.
By safety, we're not referring exclusively to protection from violence and crime. This WalletHub study encompasses various forms of safety, including workplace safety, emergency preparedness, home and community stability, road safety and, of course, financial security. With so many elements to consider, it's no wonder many people find the process of choosing a new place to call home somewhat challenging.
To help ease that process, WalletHub identified which of the 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia offer the safest and most budget-friendly environments. We used 20 key metrics to analyze each state according to different safety standards, taking into account the rates of crime and traffic accidents, for instance, as well as data related to employer insurance coverage, climate disasters and more. Our findings, as well as expert commentary and a detailed methodology, can be found below.
ICYMI: A new list has been making it's way all over the internet of a bunch of "wonderful new words we should all start using today"! These are some funny but interesting twists on words to better fit with today's ways and technology. Pretty good stuff....
A warehouse in Alabama is filled with lost luggage, and it's for sale! It's a paradise for bargain-hunters - filled to the rafters with electronics, clothes, musical instruments and jewelry, sold with as much as 80 per cent of the value lopped off. Inside, crowds of shoppers pore over the gear - some of it practically brand new - in the hope of giving the best finds a new home. In an earlier life, all the items were checked onto planes, trains and buses, their real owners expecting to see them again a few hours later. Read More

Over the weekend, reports had surfaced that Bruce Jenner would debuting his debuting his female identity on the cover of Vanity Fair, photographed by Annie Leibovitz, naturally. We didnât know what to expect from the images, but as soon as we clicked on the link from Vanity Fair, we were blown away. âOH MY GOD!â was heard throughout the office.

We might soon be meeting SOUTH West . . . because KIM KARDASHIAN and KANYE WEST are expecting their second child. There's no word on the due date.
The announcement was tucked into a tease at the end of the mid-season finale of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" last night.
Kim's struggle to get knocked up again has been one of the recurring themes of the show's current season, along with BRUCEJENNER's, you know . . . transformation.
Earlier this month, Kim said, quote, "We are trying. We try every single day. You can't try harder than we try. It's getting exhausting. He always says, 'Trying for baby number 2 isn't as fun as trying to baby number 1.'"
