Branding Ring

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.

Cereals Still Not Healthy- Worst List Updated

BAD BREAKFAST

Oh boy, you may have made a big mistake eating cereal this morning.

Meanwhile, companies are spending more money to market their least nutritious brands, researchers say.

Final Witness

HE FORGAVE HE

I’m looking forward to watching “Final Witness” that I recorded on DVR last night on ABC.

It’s a true story about a father and husband who survived being shot five times.

And the arson that burned down his Alba, Texas, home. His wife Penny and their two young sons, 13-year-old Matthew, whom everyone called Bubba, and 8-year-old Tyler, did not.

 

ABC's new TV series, "Final Witness," recreated the 2008 tragedy last night.

Vacation Do-Over!

VACATION PART 2

I love this idea…we need this here.

 

Don’t know if you know this but, most Europeans, get four to six weeks of guaranteed annual vacation leave.

And getting sick while on vacation is the worst no matter where you live.

Last week, Europe’s highest court ruled that workers who happened to get sick on vacation were legally entitled to take another vacation.
