    Two little old ladies, Gladys & Evelyn, were sitting on a park bench outside the local town hall where a flower show was in progress. The short one, Gladys, leaned over and said, 'Life is so boring. We never have any fun anymore. For $10.00 I'd take my clothes off and streak through that stupid, boring flower show! ''You're on!' said Evelyn, holding up a $10.00 bill. So Gladys slowly fumbled her way out of her clothes. She grabbed a dried flower from a nearby display and held it between her teeth. Then, completely naked, streaked (as fast as an...

    A mild winter could be in store for much of the United States this winter according to NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center. In the U.S. Winter Outlook for December through February, above-average temperatures are most likely across the northern and western U.S., Alaska and Hawaii. Additionally, El Nino has a 70 to 75 percent chance of developing. “We expect El Nino to be in place in late fall to early winter,” said Mike Halpert, deputy director of NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center. “Although a weak El Nino is expected, it may still influence the winter season by bringing wetter conditions across the...

    Romaine lettuce is unsafe to eat in any form, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Tuesday in a broad alert in response to a new outbreak of illnesses caused by a particularly dangerous type of E. coli contamination. The CDC told consumers to throw away any romaine lettuce they may already have purchased. Restaurants should not serve it, stores should not sell it, and people should not buy it, no matter where or when the lettuce was grown. It doesn’t matter if it is chopped, whole head or part of a mix. All romaine should be avoided.

    If there’s one thing you probably want to avoid as a member of the Royal household staff it’s getting on Queen Elizabeth’s bad side. Especially, if you’re her personal chef. In the new book, "Dinner at Buckingham Palace," written by former royal servant Charles Oliver, he reveals that the queen was royally peeved when she bit into her dinner salad only to find a slug in her greens. (Honestly, can you blame her for being mad?)According to Oliver, the queen and Prince Philip regularly eat their meals with notepads so they can send their suggestions back to the kitchen. This time,...
