HIGHLIGHTS: What are you going to do differently than your parents? Here are some of the top things people say their parents did . . . but they'll NEVER do to their own kids: Call them names or tell them they're stupid . . . avoid talking about sex . . . act closed-minded . . . show favoritism . . . or use "Because I said so" as a justification.
HIGHLIGHTS: Here's the latest Facebook scandal: Your Facebook friends could affect your CREDIT. They won't affect your traditional FICO score . . . but there are a handful of new companies that are analyzing your Facebook friends to determine whether you're a safe bet for credit. If you're friends with a bunch of delinquents, it looks bad for you.
HIGHLIGHTS: Some guy stole a woman's bike in Vancouver last Wednesday, then tried to sell it on Craigslist. But she saw the ad, set up a meeting in a parking lot, asked if she could take it for a test ride . . . and stole it BACK.
HIGHLIGHTS: ERIC CHURCH gave his take on TOM PETTY'S comments that today's country music is, quote, "bad rock with fiddle." He said, quote, "I don't know how much he listens to country music. And I've never been a fan of categorizing an entire genre of music based on whatever songs you hear. Everybody's entitled to their opinion but I thought it was a little unfair."
MILEY CYRUS'S raunchy performance at Sunday night's VMAs got the attention of a few country stars. Here are a couple of observations:
CHARLES KELLEY of LADY ANTEBELLUM took to his Twitter page to say, "Do you think BILLY RAY CYRUS woke up with an "Achy Breaky Heart" this morning after his little girl's performance at the VMAs last night?"
JOSH GRACIN Tweeted, "Billy Ray Cyrus. Please find some way to be a dad. Miley Cyrus has [officially] lost it." He also wrote, "Thanks Miley Cyrus. Now I have to explain to my 11-year-old daughter why she no longer can follow your career."
Have a great day!
