John Mellencamp refuses to give up his home in Indiana and move in with girlfriend Meg Ryan in New York because he wasn’t made for the big city and prefers life miles away from the noise, and the paparazzi.
He says, “I’m too sensitive to live in New York. I can’t see poor people. I can’t see the suffering. I can’t see the trash on the streets. I’m not leaving Indiana. I’m going to die here.”
And as for the paparazzi who follow him and Meg whenever they step out, he adds, “I don’t give a bleep about me, but I don’t like it for her.”
Gwen Stefani, her husband Gavin Rossdale and their boys Kingston and Zuma were on a Saturday expedition 2 weeks ago, letting them loose on the famous recreational train park and historical museum, at Hollywood’s Travel Town Museum and Railroad with Thomas the Tank Engine.
The Stax Family Christmas card just got mailed out.
Nelson Mandela, the revered South African anti-apartheid icon who spent 27 years in prison, led his country to democracy and became its first black president, died today at home surrounded by family and friends at the age of 95.
So this morning I made a comment to Morning Show Co-Host/PD (and my boss) Pete Travers that I was out doing some shopping with my girlfriend last night, and was glad she was there since she knows how to score better deals, comes up with better gift ideas and generally just leads the charge.
Pete argued with me that men, because they are more goal oriented, are so much better at getting everything done.
Now I looked it up and scientifically speaking here are the facts:
Technology unfortunately has made it pretty easy for some people to be bullies or spread fear and hate – however, it’s also made it easier for us to help others deal with their fears. Case in point, four-year-old Noah Fisher who needs glasses. The problem is, he was afraid to wear them: enter the internet.
His parent’s said they had no idea he was having trouble adjusting to his glasses until he burst into tears when his mum asked him to put on his glasses. “It just broke my heart,” Lindsey says in an interview with WLTX. “I finally got him to tell me why he was crying and he said because everyone was going to laugh at him.” So they jumped on Facebook, and set up a page to show young Noah just how cool glasses could be. They figured friends and family would get involved, but as of right now over 65,000 people have joined and even posted pictures to show their support (and how awesome glasses are!)
Since receiving this widespread support, Noah is slowly becoming more comfortable with his new glasses. Bannister Eads, Noah’s grandfather, told ABC News, “He saw all these people wearing glasses and I think he thought, ‘Well it’s not so bad after all.’ It helped him.”
His parents said as long as the likes and pictures keep rolling in, they’ll continue showing Noah every night for as long as they receive them.

Every year the Bob staff have a Secret Santa pot luck lunch. We draw names and shop for our co-workers as we imagine what they would like as a kid. We get the fun of unwrapping and trying to guess who got who what and then we donate our “gifts” to the Toy Angels campaign for the Salvation Army.
