When Whitney Houston died on February 11, there were a lot people posting tributes to the late artist. But none of them, at least in my opinion, comes close to this one from 90-year-old Jeanne Harr in Utah.
"I'm doing this in memory of the late Whitney Houston," Harr says at the beginning of the video. "It's very hard to think of her as being gone."
This is not the first video the dancing grandmother has produced. Harr can also be seen dancing to the "Black Keys" and is also known for some outrageous photos.
The project is the brainchild of her grandson and caretake, Adam Forgie. He has even set-up a My 90 Year Old Grandma Facebook page.
All I have to say is "Get your groove on Granny!"
It was too much for one father to take. Tommy Jordan of North Carolina has posted a video on YouTube of himself shooting his daughter's laptop after his daughter posted, what Jordan felt, was a disrespectful comment on Facebook.
"My daughter thought it would be funny/rebellious/cool to post on her Facebook wall just how upset she was and how unfair her life here is," says Jordan in the video. "She chose to share this with the entire world on Facebook and block her parents from seeing it. Well, umm... she failed."
It turns out that Jordan works in IT and was upgrading his daughter's computer when he came across the post.
In the video, Jordan reads his daughter's comments and gives his reaction...which includes firing a clip of .45 caliber exploding hollow points into the computer.
Did this father go to far? I'm not so sure. I think I am more appalled about what the daughter writes than the father's actions. She goes on in the letter about how she has chores and her life is tough. She complains that she never gets paid for work around the house and that she is treated like a "slave."
Turns out that her life isn't as hard as she makes it out to be.
The best part about this video is that after Jordan uploaded it to YouTube, he posted the link to his daughter's Facebook.
I guess every child needs a little tough love every now and then.

Now, the First Lady did end up winning, but if you ask me she cheated. Look at that terrible form!
A strange twist of events started with a bird burglary and ended with the victim fearing for his and his grandchildren's lives.
59-year-old Jim Amormino lives in Anaheim. He was inside his home on Wednesday when he looked out his backdoor and saw a man starting to walk away with two cockatiels that live in the backyard.
"Hey, where are you going with my birds?" Amormino says he asked the man. "He placed them down, pulled out a gun, and I started to run inside."
The gunman kicked down the backdoor and Amormino retreated to the bathroom with his granddaughters. The gunman grabbed some electronics and the family dog before bolting out the door.
"I thought it was my last" says Amormino.
The dog, which Amormino says is like family, was found a few hours later by the Orange County Sheriff's Department.
82-year-old George Murphy is no stranger to danger. He is a Bush pilot in Alaska and for three decades flew for the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race. But Friday, nature got the best of him.
He was out walking his Golden Retrievers near the Willow Airport when he spotted an agitated moose.
"He was way off. Jeez, he spotted me and he started to come right after me. So I was trying to get to the truck. But I didn't make it," Murphy told the Anchorage Daily News.
Exposed, Murphy attempted to dive into a snow bank for protection. "He started to stomp. Then he turned around and stomped again" says Murphy. "And there was nothing I could do. I was afraid he was going to kill me."
His wife, 85-year-old Dorothea Taylor, heard the commotion as she waited in the truck. She got out to investigate and saw both dogs barking and snapping at either end of the animal. She yelled for her husband to help, not knowing he was in the snow.
The moose turned and started toward her. Taylor ran back to the truck, opened the tailgate and grabbed a grain shovel. She banged on the shovel making a racket as she headed back towards the moose, which was back stomping at its original target.
Taylor, 5 feet tall and 97 pounds, walked up to the moose and started hitting the animal with the shovel. After a few blows, the moose walked off and Taylor saw that the animal was stomping her husband.
Panic, Taylor ran to one of the hangers at the airport and called for help. Her husband was transported to Providence Alaska Medical Center in Anchorage where he is recovering from broken ribs and a large gash in his head.

No pajamas in public - at least not in one Louisiana Parish if a Commisioner has his way. Caddo Parish District 3 Commissioner Michael Williams decided he wanted to insitute the ban after seeing a group of young men at a local Walmart wearing pajama pants that revealed one young man's private parts.
Williams releasing a statement saying "If you can't (wear pajamas) at the Boardwalk or courthouse, why are you going to do it in a restaurant or in public? Today it's pajamas. Tomorrow it's underwear. Where does it stop?"
Williams has not decided yet on what constitutes pajamas. He plans to poll his fellow commissioners in February.

A movement is afoot to pressure toy-maker Mattel into making a bald Barbie as a symbol for little girls with cancer and other health conditions that make their hair fall out feel normal.
On the groups Facebook Page is posted:
We would like to see a Beautiful and Bald Barbie made to help young girls who suffer from hair loss due to cancer treatments, Alopecia or Trichotillomania . Also, for young girls who are having trouble coping with their mother's hair loss from chemo. Many children have some difficulty accepting their mother, sister, aunt, grandparent or friend going from a long haired to a bald.
Accessories such as scarves and hats could be included. This would be a great coping mechanism for young girls dealing with hair loss themselves or a loved one. We would love to see a portion of proceeds go to childhood cancer research and treatment. Let's get Mattell's attention!

TSA officials are defending the decision to confiscate a cupcake from a woman boarding a plane in Las Vegas.
Last month, Rebecca Hains of Peabody, Massachusetts, was trying to return home with what is being called a "cupcake in a jar." Agents say the the cupcake's frosting, which is considered a gel, exceeding the 3 ounce limit.
Bob Burns with the TSA Blog Team writes:
I wanted to make it clear that this wasn’t your everyday, run-of-the-mill cupcake. If you’re not familiar with it, we have a policy directly related to the UK liquid bomb plot of 2006 called 3-1-1 that limits the amount of liquids, gels and aerosols you can bring in your carry-on luggage. Icing falls under the “gel” category. As you can see from the picture, unlike a thin layer of icing that resides on the top of most cupcakes, this cupcake had a thick layer of icing inside a jar.

We all have that picture of ice fishing in our head - guys all wrapped up tryinig to protect themselves from the cold while they drop their line through a small hole in the ice.
Some Finnish fishermen have decided to have some fun with the sport and have made a video of them walking on the ice...underwater...upside down.
