For the seventh year, February 28th is National Pancake Day. The day was started by well-known breakfast and pancake chain IHOP (International House of Pancakes) as the finale to a month-long charity drive for Children’s Miracle Network.
After much hype and speculation, the ‘Dancing with the Stars’ cast was announced on ‘Good Morning America’ Tuesday morning. While there are a lot of familiar names, the list may surprise you with its lack of any truly shocking choices.
On any given day, there is a lot of pressure on a waiter or waitress not to spill trays of food and drink as they hurry around a crowded restaurant. When you’re serving at an event filled with dignitaries, that pressure is even greater. Just ask Martin, a waiter in Germany who spilled beer on the Chancellor.
Early in December, 23-year-old model Lauren Scruggs stepped in front of a propeller plane while the propeller was still spinning. In that instant, her life changed forever.

On Sunday, an official from Guinness World Records named a 72-year-old Nepalese man the shortest man alive and the shortest person ever to be recorded by the publication. He was presented with two certificates to commemorate these achievements.

On Sunday, Hollywood will once again congratulate itself on a year of jobs well done. What’s unbelievably ridiculous about the Academy Awards is that in a sea of incredibly talented performances, the award can go to only one person. It just seems wrong.
For those of us who don’t spend our lives and retirement funds making movies, the actual awards part of the Academy Awards isn’t the most interesting. The people we like hardly ever win and we don’t care how much anybody’s publicist helped them get where they are today. What we really tune in to see are the fashion statements.
