My friend just called and told me that she called off her wedding. When I asked why, I was surprised. Turns out they were watching the news when a story came on about the number of parents spanking their kids has dropped dramatically in recent years. Her fiance made a comment about that’s why kids act so entitled and misbehave so much, time outs and talking to kids just doesn’t work. My friend strongly disagrees with spanking and after a few days of discussing this she decided to call off the wedding! She doesn’t want to start a family with someone who is ok with spanking. What’s your dealbreaker?
Barbie is making headlines again this time it’s because it designed a doll with the same measurements as model Ashley Graham. The new doll with Ashley’s measurements is just one of the new bodyshapes in the Fashionista line of Barbie. Thanks Barbie for spreading the word of body acceptance and love! http://www.usatoday.com/story/life/2016/11/14/barbie-continues-push-diversity-ashley-graham-doll/93610670/
An ATM in Malaysia surprised a customer when he went to go get cash out and the machine started spitting out thousands of dollars. He looked around before scooping up cash and ran off. If that happened to you….what would you do? Would you grab the money and go or try to return it to the bank?
Amanda Blac of Sacramento is on to something! She had the idea to try and spread the idea of being nice to each other again and started making signs that read “Make America Kind Again”. Her yard signs are taking off and hopefully her idea to remind people to be nice to one another takes off. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/mom-receives-hundreds-of-orders-for-her-make-america-kind-again-signs_us_582a1c49e4b0c4b63b0df332
We just can’t seem to escape the political talks and fighting now that the election is over. One United Airlines pilot had enough and announced to the cabin that there will be “no political talk while on his flight. We’re going to be in a metal tube at 35,000 feet. If anyone has a problem with that there’s another flight tomorrow. You’re not going to be on this one.” Passengers were cheering for the pilot after his comments. http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/offbeat/this-is-your-captain-speaking-please-stop-arguing-about-donald-trump-on-my-plane/ar-AAkiTJi?li=BBnb4R7
Bit Idea of the Week
Things have been heated for a while now and it doesn’t seem like people will calm down any time soon. Why not partner with the local animal shelter and one day a week take puppies/dogs to one office a week (for an hour) and give people there a chance to get some puppy love and start to feel better. Puppies make everything better!
I’m not putting much faith in this rumor but I did get from someone who lives in Hollywood. Supposedly, Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton are spending a bit of time together on the phone and in person. Angelina has been leaning on him through this rough time and he’s happy to be there for her. Billy Bob has always said that he keeps in touch with her so it wouldn’t be too much of stretch to imagine these two getting back together, even just temporarily.
Brendon Dassey from “Making A Murderer” will be released from prison. He has to submit to the courts where he will be living by Tuesday and he will be a free man. Well sort of…he can’t leave eastern Wisconsin, get a passport, have contact with Steven Avery or the victim’s family and can not own any weapons. But other than that, he’ll a free man.
Disney released the official trailer for “Beauty and The Beast” and people are going crazy over it! Movie doesn’t hit theaters until March, but it looks like a good one.
