Follow me on:

We're halfway through February already. Are you getting ready for a Valentine's Day get together? These news items might make for good small talk if you are.

  • You know Lavonne "Pepper" Paire-Davis. She said, "I know what it's like for your dream to come true." Still not sure who she is? This should help.
  • Madoff millions. For real.
  • Last week I told you about the fact that the remains of King Richard III had been found. Now we get to see what he looked like.
  • I loved the Laura Ingalls Wilder books as a kid, and it was interesting to read this week that her sister Mary might not really have gone blind from Scarlet Fever, but something else. This is a good small talk topic to bring up with a friend who likes to read or just loved the show Little House on the Prairie.
  • The Postal Service will end Saturday delivery. Find out when.
  • Did you see that Monopoly has a new game piece?
  • Just how much is the late fee on a book returned 55 years late?
