Where there are football players, there are cheerleaders!  These ladies (see link) worked hard, to make the Los Angeles Chargers squad.  In other news, you may not have to do the splits to make your own dreams come true.   (Sigh of relief emoji...)     news

In the spring, "Doris Day was all set to celebrate her 93rd birthday," until a dug up birth certificate proofed her to be 2 years older than believed.  Some speculation was her age got bumped around as a young starlet.  Nonetheless, 95 it is.  And she's stickin to it.     story

Physical restrictions can expand vision.  Limited stamina can clarify priorities.  Inability to do many things can direct focus to a few things of greatest importance."    David A. Bednar

WHAT'S IN A NAME








Hey, not every news story is top notch, k?  Sometimes news goes like this:  honoring a recently lost bet, "Zoo Atlanta welcomed Tom Brady, a Madagascar hissing cockroach, to its family."   ...I'd rather a park be named after me.  You too?    news
