With Cinco de Mayo just around the corner, we have Mexico on the brain. Perhaps this year, instead of celebrating the day with watered-down margaritas at your local Tex-Mex chain restaurant, you should start planning that trip to Mexico you’ve always talked about taking.
You might not know his name, but you definitely know his work. Thomas Kinkade painted quaint scenes of cottages, cobblestone paths and warm, glowing windows, seemingly lit as an invitation to come inside. He had mass appeal that made him a household name and the target of disapproval from art critics. Kinkade passed away unexpectedly on Friday at the age of 54.
Every year since 2000, except 2001 and 2003, Google has treated netizens to at least one, sometimes 17, April Fool’s Day pranks and easter eggs. And, since we know they love to play (check out their new Google Play offering), we’re hoping 2012 will be no different.
The weather can make it tough to get a golden tan all year ’round. So when you need that sun-kissed look at the wrong time of year, you have to take matters into your own hands. It is not at all uncommon to turn to tanning beds, self-applied tans or spray tans, but these don’t always go the way they’re supposed to.

Early in December, 23-year-old model Lauren Scruggs stepped in front of a propeller plane while the propeller was still spinning. In that instant, her life changed forever.

State lawmakers in Indiana were recently presented with a resolution to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Girl Scouts organization and honor the positive influence the group has had on American women. Representative Bob Morris, a Republican from Fort Wayne, was the only representative to refuse to sign, citing a belief that the Girl Scouts is a “radicalized organization.”
Not at all coincidentally, February 15th has been designated Singles Awareness Day. This is a day for singles to get out there and appreciate each other, since all the couples just got to have their day. This was the brilliant idea of Dustin Barnes, a student at Mississippi State, and we think he was spot on.
As we approach Valentine’s Day and the season of love, a lot of couples get the urge to take that big step toward marriage. But before your eyes well up with tears of joy and sweetness, you must do the math. Based on the law of percentages, not all of these proposals can possibly go well.
