Now This is Scary
Like skydiving isn't scary enough. Christopher Jones was at 12,000 feet, just out of his plane, when he was paralyzed by a seizure. His instructor realized he was in trouble and flew over to him, managing to pull the emergency chute. Jones woke up at 3,000 feet and was able to control his landing. So far, the video of his plunge and rescue has had over 5 million hits. Amazing. I don't think you'd ever catch me jumping out of a plane, but if you did, and this happened, you'd probably never catch me in an elevator again.

Feel Like Living Like the Walking Dead?
If you're a fan of The Walking Dead and you've got $680,000, then Grantville, Georgia could be just the spot for you. Not the whole town - just the downtown. And the downtown is famous for its use as a set in The Walking Dead. The town's economy used to depend on textiles. That industry went away years ago. These days, the industry is tourism, as in Walking Dead tourists. The nine buildings up for sale are commercial properties, so if you've got a flair for developing - and don't mind a bunch of zombies walking around from time to time - get on eBay and make your bid!

Beware the Stoner Rabbits!
An agent for the Drug Enforcement Administration appeared before Utah's Senate last week to speak against a proposed bill that would legalize marijuana. Specifically, he's afraid that allowing marijuana to be grown in the state would hurt the environment. Why? Because rabbits and other wildlife could cultivate a taste for marijuana. In fact, he said he witnessed such behavior, in a rabbit who'd developed a taste for the herb and lost his natural instinct to run. Good to know the government's out there protecting us from stoner rabbits... Listen to Agent Fairbanks' testimony here. Some of it is flat-out hilarious.

Stolen and "Maliciously Altered"
By now, you've probably seen the picture of Cindy Crawford that was all over the internet a week or so ago. It showed Cindy in a bra and panties, wearing a hat and some sort of stole. The story that went with the photo was that it showed Cindy in all her unretouched glory - a celebration of a woman embracing her real body. Turns out the photo was actually stolen and "maliciously altered," according to Cindy's attorneys. They are threatening to sue everyone who posted the picture if they don't take it down and apologize. For the record, Cindy's husband posted this picture to Instagram to show what she really looks like.     She got flowers and I got her. Happy Valentines Day @cindycrawford A photo posted by Rande Gerber (@randegerber) on Feb 14, 2015 at 6:00pm PST And if you don't believe the picture, listen to what Christie Brinkley had to say about Cindy in an interview with Access Hollywood last week...

They Cut Meryl Streep?
Meryl Streep plays The Witch in Into the Woods, a movie that started its life as a Broadway musical written by the legendary Stephen Sondheim. Sondheim wrote a new song for the film - "She'll Be Back" - to be sung by Meryl's character. And she sang it, and it was in the movie, and then it wasn't. Director Rob Marshall says that it was for the good of the movie - that the movie was stronger without it. But not to worry. These days, nothing really gets thrown away, and the word is that the song will be included in the bonus features when the film gets its DVD release. Here's a little taste.

Dude! What's That White Stuff on the Ground?
Folks in Huntington Beach and other coastal communities in southern California had a little weather surprise yesterday. Pea-sized hail fell on the area, and for a while, coated the beaches and grassy areas with white stuff. A rare occasion, to be sure. It didn't stick around long - as you'll see from the video, it melted pretty quickly - which is certain to upset folks in the Northeast, who've been dealing with record amounts of unmeltedness this season. And as you'll see from the video, at least one enterprising Californian figured out a way to surf on it. Hail's up, dude!

Don't Believe It? Just Watch!
"Uptown Funk" is one of the hottest tunes in the country. It's one of those songs that gets your blood pumping and toes tapping. Until now. Thanks to Alex Bove and the Dancing Grandpas, "Uptown Funk" got slowed down - well, a little bit. It's called "Oldtown Cover," and everyone in the video is at least 65 years old... So some of the moves are way slower than the Bruno Mars version. Naturally.

Making the Most of Nothing
Steve Harvey has proved himself a master of making the most of some of the ridiculous moments on Family Feud. But this one from last month takes the cake. Simple question: "Other than fruit, name something you might choose by squeezing it first." But neither contestant would buzz in. Because neither one could think of an answer. And that left Steve to fill the gap while the show sort of reset itself. Watch!   (function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js#xfbml=1"; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);}(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk')); Post by Family Feud 2.

Live Long and Prosper
Leonard Nimoy, best known for playing the iconic Mister Spock in a variety of Star Trek movies and TV shows, passed away on Friday at the age of 83. Four days earlier, he posted his final tweet, which sounds like he knew he was leaving... A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP — Leonard Nimoy (@TheRealNimoy) February 23, 2015 Since he passed, a lot of media outlets have been posting tidbits about him and Spock. One of the more interesting is this interview from several years ago where he explained the origins of Spock's famous hand gesture that went along with the Vulcan salute, "Live Long and Prosper."

Kelly Quits the Cops
Kelly Osbourne went through with her threat to leave Fashion Police. Last week, she was pretty upset over a comment her co-host Giuliana Rancic made about Zendaya's dreadlocks that created quite a stir. She made her departure official on Friday, and instantly, her mother - Sharon Osbourne of The Talk - applauded her. .@KellyOsbourne, I am so proud of you. You can never be bought. You always wear your heart on your sleeve. #ProudToBeYourMum — Sharon Osbourne (@MrsSOsbourne) February 28, 2015 Meanwhile, Billy Bush from Access Hollywood took a few shots at Kelly before her departure, and that angered the other half of Kelly's DNA pool - her dad, rocker Ozzy Osbourne - who had a choice tweet for Billy... @BillyBush stop acting like a bitch. Act like a man. Lay off Kelly or we'll be going to hospital to get my foot out of your ass. God Bless. — Ozzy Osbourne (@OzzyOsbourne) February 27, 2015

When in Chicago...
On Sunday, thousands of people jumped into Chicago's Lake Michigan. It was time for the annual Polar Plunge, which raised close to $1 million for Special Olympics On hand were a few celebrities. Vince Vaughn, an area native, jumped in wearing a Chicago Blackhawks jersey. Lady Gaga showed up and took the plunge with her fiance, Taylor Kinney, one of the actors from Chicago Fire. Ironically, Gaga was covered pretty much head to toe, wearing more to take a dip in the lake than she wears to perform...     ❤️ feels so good to do things for a good cause like the Special Olympics. It's great donate money, but also great to donate a gesture of love for those who deserve to be showered with it. A photo posted by @ladygaga on Mar 1, 2015 at 9:24am PST Check out the video from The Chicago Sun-Times that includes some stills of Vince, Gaga and Taylor...

50 Shades of SNL
Dakota Johnson, star of 50 Shades of Grey, hosted Saturday Night Live this past weekend. Her opening monologue wasn't bad. She poked fun at 50 Shades - actually took a couple of good shots at it. And interestingly, she introduced her parents - Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson - who were in the front row. Only Don spoke. Probably just as well...

Growing Scented Geraniums Indoors and Out
Add a bit of aromatherapy to your indoors with scented geraniums. Give the leaves a gentle pet and enjoy the lemon, rose, apple, peppermint or pine fragrance. Place the plants in areas where you brush by the leaves or can easily give them a pat to release and enjoy the fragrance. Though grown for the fragrant leaves, these plants will produce attractive, but less showy flowers than the popular bedding geranium. Both are truly Pelargoniums, but most gardeners know them by their common name of geranium. Grow these as houseplants in a sunny window or a sunny location outdoors during frost-free weather. Scented geraniums are hardy in zones 10 and 11 and must be moved indoors for the winter in most areas. Use a quality potting mix for indoor plantings or grow them outdoors in well-drained soil for best results. Remove the faded flowers and pinch back the stems as needed. A bit more information: Start new plants from cuttings taken from healthy plants. Take a 4-inch piece of the stem with leaves, remove any flowers, and root. Or use trimmings made when pruning back your plant. For more details, listen to my audio tip on Starting New Plants from Cuttings.
