Oh, my heavens! I can’t think of a more delightful note to start the work-week off with than this hilarious spoof. Some of you may have seen this already. It went viral about a month ago, but I only just discovered it this weekend. “Waddle, waddle, waddle, waddle, waddle, yeah!” Haha! How cute is she? […]

The Tablet has an excellent article from Simi Lampert who explains why donating her eggs seemed like an easy way to make money — until she thought about her family and the fact that she was not only selling her eggs, but also, potentially, her biological children.

Sad to hear about the passing of Dick Clark today at the tender age of 82. I really think Dick the world a favor when he returned to his post as the host of Dick Clark’s Rockin’ Eve after a devastating stroke. Why? Responding to critics of his “cringe-worthy” return who said that he should […]
