BY Laurie in General |

This is just so sad, Tatum O'neal was busted again for drugs. When I was a kid, Paper Moon was my absolute favorite movie, I loved her cool, tom boy antics, and then bad News Bears come out- jeez, that was a masterpiece as far as I was concerned! Anyway, I guess all that  smoking and drinking on screen did lead to the addictions she can't seem to shake at 44 years old. I feel bad ... Read More

Her health care costs for the next six months will be around $25,000. Did we mention no health ... Read More

  Say hello to the Miracle Fruit.  The NYT featured this miracaculous little berry in it's dining and wine section today.  This tiny fruit has the power to alter our tastebuds, "rendering lemons as sweet as candy."

The berry, Synsepalum dulcificum, is native to West ... Read More
