Kate Hudson Has A Cool Crib

Muse front man Matt Bellamy and actress girlfriend Kate Hudson recently purchased this $5.3 million home.

The English style home has 5 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms and is more than 7,000 sq. ft. The home was built in 1935 and sits on a third of an acre.

Quite modest for a celebrity home.

Foods That Will Make Your Poop Change Colours

So.....Do you want to be the hit at the next party. Here is a sure way to impress people at a them that awesome florescent pink poop you just expelled. Here are some foods that will make your poop change colors:

1.) Frankenberry Cereal.....The stool coloring comes as a result of a specific dye used in the cereal’s manufacturing process that doesn’t break down in the digestive system, so it comes out bright pink.

2.) Beets......Your stool turns as purple as Barney the Dinosaur.

3.) Guiness Beer.... yields jet-black TURDS. Black poop can also be a sign of internal bleeding, so if you’re pooping black and you didn’t drink a Guiness recently, you should hightail it to the emergency room immediately.

4.) Red Wine.....has been known to turn poop green as it is high in fruit and sugars.

Happy Anniversary

16 years ago today, my boyfriend of nearly 3 years became my husband. Since then, we've had two children and a mortgage, a huge renovation and addition to our home, and a health scare together. We've laughed and cried, loved and fought. We are much richer than we were 16 years ago, and fatter, and stronger. I don't think either of us had a clear idea all those years ago what this would entail, other than a big white dress and higher taxes. And while nothing in life is certain, there are two things I am sure of. My husband loves a good Star Wars reference, and we will go past 16 together. Happy Anniversary Baby......xo

Ray Ponce Is Inspirational

Ray works 6-8 hours a day singing outside of local markets and knows over 500 songs. He ISN’T homeless and the money he makes goes to staying off the streets. He also is very much at peace with his life.
