Joe, my husband, had a day off from work yesterday. Instead of taking time to nap, rest or do things JUST for himself, he decided to have a Daddy/Son day! It started off at Krispy Kreme & from there they headed to the Aquarium! After naps he took them to the Rec Center to go swimming. They loved EVERY minute of it! They talked non-stop about their amazing day with Daddy when I got home from work last night. Here are some adorable pictures from their adventure!

As my poor husband walks IN the door from a very long day, I'm walking OUT for a meeting at school. Being the truly terrible wife I am, I'm leaving 3 little girls sitting at the counter with a 25 pound brick of clay that they've been using to sculpt little animals … AND ...four 10-year-old boys in the room to the right having a massive Nerf gun war. None of them have had dinner.

1-10 on the scale of horribleness? I say a solid 9.

HOWEVER...within 15 minutes of getting home, Brian showed the girls how to hide tooth picks in the clay so the appendages would stay on - and he conquered all 4 boys in Nerf Wars.

So I ask you, does the fact that he's an awesome husband make me a terrible wife? I think not!!

 In a recent appearance on Oprah Winfrey's Where Are They Now?, actress Carmen Electra opened up about her short marriage with the NBA's Dennis Rodman.

Yes, the same guy who thinks he can solve the world's problems by playing basketball in North Korea was once married to Carmen.

And as described by Carmen, it was "the worst."

In her and his defense, she also said when it was good, it was "amazing."

She says she remembers thinking, immediately after the wedding, "Oh God, what did we do? What did we just do?"

Not a good start, no matter how you look at it...

In Back to the Future II, Marty McFly made a quick escape on a Hoverboard - a floating skateboard that existed in the future.

Remember the scene?


Well now, thanks to a company called ..., you can have a hoverboard all your own - for the miniscule setback price of $10,000.

It's part of a Kickstarter project, trying to raise $250,000. If you'd like a working prototype, it's yours for $10K.

A couple of things you need to know. The device can float only three centimeters off the ground, it cannot be steered, and it will only float over very special non-ferrous surfaces, like copper and aluminum.

But it none of that bothers you and you have the cash burning a hole in your pocket, go for it!

Leave it to Ellen Degeneres to get into the sports prediction business.

On her show yesterday, she brought in two representatives of the two teams involved in the World Series, the San Francisco Giants and the Kansas City Royals.

Okay, truthfully, it was two guys in baseball pants and hats from the two teams - the wardrobe budget appears to have run out when it came to buying the guys jerseys.

But no one in the audience seemed to mind.

In fact, the super scientific predictor was to send the two guys into the audience - the predicted winner would be the dancer who collected the most money in his shorts.

Yes. No need to read it again - it's what happened.

So hang onto this to see how good Ellen's process is...

It's been 21 years since since legendary singer and songwriter Billy Joel has had a hit.

And according to an interview in The New Yorker, that's been on purpose.

He says he really dislikes the "horror of celebrity," and he's really uncomfortable with the demands it places on folks like him. 

In fact, he said that all the scrutiny and second-guessing made him feel like "there was a proctoscope up my butt."

Um, ouch!

Seems like that would make it very difficult to sit down at a piano too.

Chelsea Handler is well-known for just letting fly whatever comes to mind.

Some folks would suggest that her thoughts are often formed in her oral cavity instead of her cranium.

The other night on Late Night with Conan O'Brien, she was working toward something when she asked Conan and his co-host, Andy Richter, whether they liked the ocean.

Andy said he did - and Chelsea fumbled her way into an ill-defined and -conceived fat joke.

Andy handled it perfectly, and his response put Chelsea in her place.

Check it out.

In a new interview with GQ magazine, film star Matthew McConaughey shared the romantic story of how he decided to marry his now-wife, Camila Alves.

According to him, it took her grabbing the bull by the horns, and saying, "C’mon, Big Boy, Mr. Easygoing-We’ll- Get-to-It-When-We-Get-to-It. Either s**t or get off the pot."

While Matthew didn't mention it in the interview, his wife will undoubtedly be releasing her new line of matrimonial greeting cards any time now - as soon as she gets off the pot.

Sister Cristina, the Italian nun who won her nation's version of American Idol, has released a new single.

It's a cover - well, sort of - of Madonna's 1984 hit song, "Like a Virgin."

Yes, folks, a nun, singing "Like a Virgin."

Sister Cristina said in an interview with an Italian newspaper that her idea to cover the song is not meant to be "provocative or scandalous."

She says if you simply read the song's lyrics - and pay no attention to Madonna's interpretation - it's really a song about "love's ability to renew a person and rescue them from the past."

I guess covering "Like a Prayer" would have been expected, huh?

When I was in New York City the week before last, my wife and I sent to The National September 11 Memorial & Museum Visitor Center. It was really something. Tickets can be purchased online ahead of time and there is a timed entry on each ticket. They're done an amazing job on capturing that tragic day in American History. I highly recommend it. Here's a photo of one of the nearly 300 emergency vehicles that were destroyed on that sad day. Let us never forget.
