JOGGOBOT

We saw this and it is the NEXT step to staying in shape and having a fitness coach that will help push you. The hard part about working out is NOT being motivated is we all want to be fit BUT it's getting up off the couch after a hard, long day at work and then finding someone to do it with you.

AROUND THE WORLD

Jake Villanueva is a 23-year-old Surrey, B.C. man who has cancer. On Father's Day of last year Jame was diagnosed with kidney cancer and given 6 months to live.

Ashley and Brad,

Most of the time I feel like I'm with an amazing guy. My boyfriend is strong and smart and funny and we get along really well.

The only major problem in our relationship is that he has no idea how to handle me when I get upset.

If I'm stressed out and start crying, he totally shuts down and doesn't even attempt to comfort me.

I've gotten upset with him about this a few times and his answer is always the same -- he says he's not naturally good at that and that's what my girlfriends are for.

I don't know what to do about this.

SPRAY ON TAN

Okay, when I say THE TANNED MOM, I think we all know WHO I am talking about!  And just maybe HER look has convinced you that tanning beds are not good for us.  So onto the next alternative: THE SPRAY ON TAN! 

After all, no burning the skin, no PRE-mature aging, no UVR rays, no melanoma or other skins conditions. BUT (and you may not like this) even the SPRAY ON TAN has its side effects! 

AHHHHH

SHUT YOUR MOUTH

Mimi Duphily was hanging baskets of pink geraniums on antique street lamps downtown for the Middleborough Beautification and Activities Group when she noticed something else that needed cleaning up -- citizens' mouths.

"The cursing has gotten very, very bad. I find it appalling and I won't tolerate it," said Duphily, a civic leader in the otherwise quiet New England community, which calls itself the Cranberry Capital of the World. "No person should be allowed to talk in that manner."
