A few weeks ago, a squirrel came by our yard with a peanut. We didn’t know he was out there when we opened the back door and our beagles immediately charged. The squirrel had to leave her peanut behind. But she ten minutes later she tried to come back for it. Jacek was impressed with the squirrel’s tenacity, that she was willing reenter the yard for her peanut, knowing that two beagles were there. Full Story

Hi Duana,   I have unexpectedly been asked to adopt my cousin's 2 week old baby, currently named Lillie. Lillian is also the name of a beloved grandmother, and as such, there are a number of Lily, Lillian and Lillies in the family. I was wondering if there were names that Lillie could be a nickname for (still honoring my grandmother) that wouldn't be the same as the countless other tributes to my grandmother. Full Story

Gerard Butler—who is basically Jason Statham without the charm, or Chuck Norris with a Scottish accent—makes a certain kind movie. His movies are dependably bad, his performances are reliably wooden, he never has chemistry with anyone on screen. His movies always feature some combination of the following: Gerard Butler is THE BEST! Disdain for science/nerds/higher education Pro-military Gerard Butler doesn’t take orders, HE GIVES THEM Borderline homoeroticism You can set clocks by the Gerard Butler Checklist, his formula is so reliable Full Story

Since it first broke almost a couple of weeks ago that Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth had separated, and Miley was seen making out with Kaitlynn Carter on holiday in Italy, public opinion, at least from what I’ve seen, has been in favour of Liam. I guess it should be expected. Miley’s had some wild years. Full Story

Taylor Swift’s seventh album, Lover, was released last night, a few hours after the release of the video for the song “Lover”. “Lover” is, presumably, about Joe Alwyn and there’s been all kinds of speculation, because of the lyrics, whether or not she and Joe might be married so I was wondering whether or not he’d show up – he doesn’t, which probably isn’t surprising, because she’s not going to put their relationship/possible marriage on blast like that, but she does include callbacks to what are presumably symbols of their relationship, like “glitter on the floor after the party”, the lyrics in “New Year’s Day”, the last song off reputation. Full Story
