*Let’s just call this The hug felt around the world. Michelle Obama, who will go down in history as capturing a beauty we haven’t seen in a First Lady since….sound of crickets while I think…since…Ok maybe Jackie Kennedy on a certain level, has got to have the biggest heart. At the opening of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture, saw former President George W. Bush, and gave him a hug.
And you’ve got to admit, some of the photos are humorous indeed. Like the one above showing the face of Republican presidential nominee, Donald Trump, replacing the Bush photo.
Others have the “photo editors” creating pictures that reimagine Bush as a sleeping baby…
Bush as a “bush”…as in tree.
Huffington Post gives a glimpse of posts emanating from some of these reimagined pics; along with more photo edits that include actor John Travolta laying a kiss on the former president (wonder what that’s about and why him…but moving on); a pillow with some cute cartoon character replacing Bush; Mrs. Obama hugging herself…yeah, it starts to get stupid after a while; the First Lady hugging Brad Pitt.
The current asking price is a cool $616,000 — but that may change soon.
“The original plan was to take this property to market without using any reference to Harry Potter,” real estate agent Paul Bosanko said. But since news of the property’s connection to the movie got out, interest has increased sharply, “and that may or may not influence the final price that we achieve at this property,” he said.
Translation: the price is going up quick and in a hurry.
The three-bedroom house is in Bracknell, a town about 30 miles west of London. While the home was used in the original movie, a studio set based on the house was built for later installments of the eight-film series.
Real estate agency Chancellors says the house “has recently undergone complete renovation to an extremely high standard.” But yes — as I know you’re wondering just as much as I am — THE HOUSE STILL HAS A CUPBOARD UNDER THE STAIRS!Continue reading →
*So you’ve had a long weekend and now it’s time to get back to work. Here is something cute to get you on your way!
Many of you may be too young to remember the Saturday morning cartoons that differ greatly from those your kids may be watching today (Teen Titans or other more techno-looking animations). I’m talking about the original, classic, irreplaceable funnies that starred characters like Bugs Bunny, Elmer Fudd, Tweety Bird and Daffy Duck.
I recall getting up on Saturday morning and watching these characters as my siblings and I ate breakfast… together .
Oh! Talk about glory days!
Apparently, a male Flight attendant at Southwest Airlines misses those days as much as I do.
*Let’s just file this one under Idiot of the Week shall we? But let me set this up for you. You are arrested for property offenses, but you somehow escape. Of course the first thing your dumb ass is going to do is go on Facebook.
Oh! What’s this? It’s ME!!! Ugh. Why’d they use THAT picture?
Why not use THIS ONE instead!?
This is the exact scenario 18-year-old Amy Sharp brought to life in Australia after police posted a photo of her online in an attempt to locate her.
*Wow. Wow! Wow!!! Where in the world was this teacher when I was in school…at ANY grade level!? When second grade teacher Brandy Young wrote a note to parents informing them of a new policy where her students would have no homework for the entire year, no one clapped back. There was no, “What the heck?” No…”Let’s contact the school board”…No phone calls requesting a meeting to vent.
What there was, was a lot of… Hey, we think that’s a great idea.
Who’da thunk it?
The thousands of people sharing a post of the letter Young sent to parents. One of those parents uploaded it to Facebook telling how “Brooke is loving her new teacher already!”
Needless to say, the post has gone viral.
“After much research this summer, I am trying something new,” read the note from Young to parents of her second-graders. “I ask that you spend your evenings doing things that are proven to correlate with student success. Eat dinner as a family, read together, play outside, and get your children to bed early.”
I hope my teenaged grandson’s school adopts this policy. He works SO hard on homework….hours…even after a full day at school.Continue reading →
The Egyptian Radio and Television Union (ERTU) has given the women just one month to take off the pounds before allowing them to appear again on air with what they say will be “appropriate appearance.”
Interestingly, the ERTU has a female director, Safaa Hegazy, who used a be TV anchor!
Lest you ask, yes, Hegazy is what many in the US would call a “skinny beeeatch.” I think she looks like Sally Field, but anyway…Continue reading →
*Who said humans are the only ones that can film things? Apparently, they lied! At least as far as one little tech-savvy squirrel is concerned. This cute little rodent decided to snatch some YouTuber’s GoPro equipment and take us on a little romp through the park.
