FUTURE

This is actually pretty ingenious.

Jeremiah McDonald, who is a filmmaker, has managed to answer all of the burning questions his 12-year-old self was dying to know ... 20 years later!

Here's how he did it: He took old video of himself, he's 12 in the footage. And he edited his 32 year old self in the video answering the questions he left for himself 20 years ago...  It's a pretty neat idea.

KIDS AND FINANCES

Last week while on vacation I had lunch with a friend of mine and we caught up on what’s ben going on with each other.

One topic that came up was about our kids. We talked about how much kids should know about grown up things and then he told me his kids, ages 11 and 13 know all about him and his wife’s finances.

I was like what? That’s crazy, kids don’t need to know how much mommy and daddy make, or how much they have in the bank. Everytime I’m doing bills if Rylee walks into the room I tell her I’m busy and come back later.

WOMEN TAKE CHARGE OF VACATION-PLANNING:

A new travel survey found that women take control of vacation-planning -- from choosing the destination, to shopping for clothes and booking the transportation. The only things men are responsible for are getting the family to the airport, carrying the luggage and driving while abroad. 43% of women even insist on carrying all the passports when traveling, fearing their other half can't be trusted to have his own.

THE HEAT IS ON

Cooler weather is on the way this week.

Two weeks of oven-like temperatures had taken their toll: at least 46 deaths were tied to the heat over that period, according to a list compiled by the Weather Channel.

Virginia saw the most heat-related deaths with 10, followed by Maryland (9) and Illinois (6). Three of the dead were children, with the rest adults between 45 and 83.

Even here in Tennessee there were at least 2 known heat-related deaths.

HOMELESS MAN

I know many of you have vacation plans and here's an eye opener: Be very careful when you check OUT of your hotel because a homeless man spent some pretty lavish nights on vacationers tickets. 

The guys name is David Price. He's been homeless for the past two years but NOT hotel-less!  He stayed at the Ritz Carlton, the Hard Rock Hotel, the Portofino Bay Hotel, the Peabody International, and the Four Seasons in Miami!

SPEED TRAP

 UH OH... We could be in trouble... N

ow I always thought THIS could NOT happen or at least you wouldn't get in trouble for it. But apparently, we may need to rethink things.

You know how sometimes as you're traveling down the highway and you see a cop with radar so you use your lights to signal the other cars ahead as if to say, "hey, slow down!"

 

Well...

A woman in Houston, Texas, was arrested and jailed for 12 hours after she held up a make-shift sign to warn drivers about a speed trap.

WE BELIEVE

1 in 10 of us think they’re out there!

That's the word from a new National Geographic Channel study finding that 80 million Americans are certain UFOs exist and that one in 10 believe they've spotted one.

A third of Earthlings believe in UFOs, would befriend aliens

NO CHEATING

Worried about your spouse slipping off the wedding ring and cheating on you? Put this in the last-resort category: A ring that leaves the words "I'M MARRIED" embedded on the flesh of your finger.

   In the old days, a creative cad could simply remove his ring before heading out on the town. But this band is engraved on the inside, so an imprint on the skin is made after the ring is worn for a while. (pics)

 

   Cost of the titanium ring: $550.

DROP THE FRIES

No wonder why our court systems are clogged up.

Listen to this!

A Massachusetts man was arrested after he allegedly threw a container of McDonald's french fries at his 11-year-old stepdaughter.

James Hackett, his wife, and the girl were driving home after grabbing some fast food from a local McDonald's on Friday, according to a police report obtained by The Smoking Gun.

On the way, the married couple began arguing over money, according to the police account.
