Do you remember Douglas Barr?

By +Ian C

Here is a yesteryear trivia test for you all. Who is Douglas Barr? No cheating, no reading ahead, because obviously I am going to reveal the answer further into the post. He was in a popular TV show from 1981-1986, so those of you who are younger than 35, you are excused for not knowing this famous actor.

By +Brad Naylor

The hot new craze of Swifting

By +Sue Casa

I am sure you all remember 'planking', when people would post pictures on their facebook page of them lying flat, face down and rigid in the most awkward and silly place possible. And then of course there was 'owling' which didn't quite get the same recognition, but involved people perching in an owl pose and again posting the evidence to facebook. Our American readers may also be familiar with 'Tebowing' which, I am told, lasted almost as long as his career. It seems that all of those ridiculous trends have been firmly placed in the archives, but a new trend is sweeping the nation. That trend is known as...

DNA evidence suggests a hiccup for the royals

By +Sue Casa

The bones found beneath a parking lot in Leicester, UK have been confirmed by Britain's top DNA boffins to be those of Richard III, King of England, who died in 1485 fighting the Tudors during the War of the Roses; thus leaving the throne open to Henry VII who succeeded by right of conquest. The lack of horse skeletons in the burial area suggest that Shakespeare's version of Richard III's demise was accurate at least from an equine angle.

What do we want for Christmas?

By +Ian C

Now that Thanksgiving is done, and the Black Friday battles have abated it's time for Cyber Monday. Cyber Monday is when all of the 'best' online deals come around.
