Beverly Hills, 90210 stars Jennie Garth and Ian Ziering had an unexpected reunion.  They shared photos and videos Thursday on Instagram after running into each other on a flight. Garth posted a photo of herself and Ziering posing together on the plane.  “You never know who you’ll see on an airplane @ianziering #kelly #steve,” she captioned the post.  Ziering also shared a video of himself and Garth joking around. Ziering asks Garth if she “comes here often” before Garth sends him off and tells him to put on a mask.  “Love this girl! @jenniegarth #beverlyhills90210 #bh90210reunion #bh90210,” he captioned the post.  Garth and Ziering played love interests Kelly Taylor and Steve Sanders on Beverly Hills, 90210, which aired for 10 seasons on Fox from 1990 to 2000.

Dolly Parton Clears Up Her Breasts Rumors

Dolly Parton is getting some things off her chest.  She revealed on Wednesday’s “Today with Hoda & Jenna” that despite rumors that have circulated, her breasts are not insured.  “It’s not true,” Parton said.   Parton added that something she said previously about getting her legs insured ended up being mistaken as fact.  “Years ago, was it [actress] Betty Grable, or one of the great famous stars that was famous also for her legs? At that time, I said ‘Well maybe I should get my boobs insured since I’m famous for them.'”  “It was just a joke,” she confirmed. “I didn’t do that.”  “By the way, you can get new boobs but you can’t get new legs!” she quipped.  Last week, Parton entertained her social media followers when marking her 76th birthday on January 19.  “Just hangin’ out in my birthday suit,” she captioned her photo.  Parton’s “birthday suit” in question was a pink silk suit with red lace details.
********You can’t tell us she hasn’t had work!! There are no 76-year-old breasts that look like that!!
*******She should insure them!! What would happen if they deflated like one of Tom Brady’s footballs??
TOPIC: If YOU were going to insure one body part, what would it be???

David Letterman Returning To Late Night

Twenty-nine years after departing “Late Night,” David Letterman is back for one night only. The current host, Seth Meyers, announced Letterman’s return in honor of the show’s 40th anniversary on Feb. 1.  “My guest that evening will be the man who started it all,” Meyers said in a video, as the crowd cheered and applauded.  Letterman, who hosted the NBC show from its very beginning in 1982, departed in 1993 to host CBS’ “Late Show,” which is currently hosted by Stephen Colbert.  Throughout his more than 30 years in his late-show career, Letterman’s quirky charm and anti-humor earned him brownie points with his audience, landing him amongst the most well-known talk show hosts.  Meyers, who took over the show from Jimmy Fallon in 2014, accredited the success of “Late Night” to Letterman’s lasting — and “incredible” — legacy.  “This show, ‘Late Night,’ this is David Letterman’s show,” Meyers said in 2014 according to CNN upon becoming the new host. “If it wasn’t for David Letterman, this show wouldn’t exist. And if it wasn’t for David Letterman, I wouldn’t be here.”
********Gee… thanks a lot, Dave!!!
******These days, Dave looks like he stepped out of a “Lord of the Rings” movie!

They all dined together, the outlet reports, after which Kim and Pete returned to Davidson’s Beverly Hills hotel together.  Other attendees at the dinner — such as Bezos’ girlfriend, Lauren Sanchez — were not reported.  TMZ also notes that Bezos wasn’t even the only one-percenter in Kardashian’s calendar this week: She was spotted Monday grabbing coffee with Hillary and Chelsea Clinton at the black-owned LA coffee shop Hot & Cool Cafe in Canoga Park.

Minnie Mouse Is Getting A Makeover

Minnie Mouse is reclaiming her power in a Stella McCartney power suit.  She is trading in her iconic polka dot dress for a pair of pants for the first time this year.  Disneyland Paris announced on Tuesday that Minnie will wear trousers designed by Stella McCartney for the theme park’s upcoming 30th-anniversary celebration.  The party will launch in March for Women’s History Month, which inspired the new look.  The park’s Twitter account shared a sneak peek of Minnie’s new outfit, which consists of a dark blue and black polka-dotted pantsuit and matching bow in her hair.  “Stella McCartney has designed Minnie Mouse’s very first pantsuit, and it’s gorgeous,” the account wrote.  She spoke to D23, the official Disney fan club, about the collab and revealed she’s “delighted” about the opportunity.  “Minnie has always had a special place in my heart,” McCartney said. “We share the same values. What I love about Minnie is the fact that she embodies happiness, self-expression, authenticity, and that she inspires people of all ages around the world. Plus, she has such great style!”  “This new take on her signature polka dots makes Minnie Mouse a symbol of progress for a new generation,” she explained. “She will wear it in honor of Women’s History Month in March 2022. I can’t wait for you to see this new look at Walt Disney Studios Park!”

Cheap Chair Sells Big!

A wood and wicker chair purchased from a thrift store in Britain was auctioned for more than $21,000 when it was identified as the work of an early 20th-century artist.  Auction house Sworders said a woman bought the chair for just under $7 at a thrift store in Brighton, England.  “When I got the chair home, I had a closer look and thought it looked really interesting.

Urn Found At The Goodwill Store

One Texas woman’s thrifting trip took a mysterious turn as she discovered a used urn at a local Goodwill store.  Austin resident Jessa Randall went to a local Goodwill on Monday where she found a small vase-like item. After a closer look, she found a plug at the bottom of the ceramic with a bag of ashes tucked inside.  Store managers confirmed Goodwill does not track personal or contact information for donors, and the urn didn’t have any identifying information etched on its surface. After losing a close family member last year and going through the cremation process on their behalf, Randall said this hit close to home for her. Now, she’s looking for answers and closure for the potential family missing this memorial piece.  “I just had the sense that I couldn’t leave it there. It just felt sad,” she said. “It needed to be in a home.”  Randall and her husband have dubbed the urn “Jackie,” in a way to provide a sense of respect and integrity for its occupant, she said. Currently, the two haven’t narrowed down any leads on who might be missing the urn.
*********”Hey, what happened to Grandpa???”
*********They should go through the ashes and make sure there are no chicken bones in there!! They might be from a barbecue!!!






The 9 Best Ways to Handle Sudden Vet Costs

The Penny Hoarder


9 Ways to Pay for a Pet Emergency

Here are the nine ways to pay for a pet emergency and we break them all down in this post.

  1. Insurance
  2. Emergency savings
  3. Credit cards
  4. Personal loans
  5. Payment plans with your vet
  6. Low-cost clinics
  7. Loca animal shelters and rescue groups
  8. Crowdfunding
  9. Grants and non-profit organizations

The No. 1 way to cover any emergency veterinary bills is with pet insurance. For an affordable premium that you can factor into your monthly budget, pet health insurance means you will only pay a deductible and/or coinsurance, depending on your plan, if your cat gets cancer or your dog breaks a leg.

But insurance itself can be cost-prohibitive for some families. In this article, we’ll take a look at how to find the best pet insurance policy for your needs, but we’ll also examine other ways to care for your pet in emergencies, especially for those who can’t afford insurance for their pets.

Pet Insurance 101

Increasingly, pet parents are turning to pet insurance to combat the rising costs of animal health care. In times of true emergency, pet insurance can be the difference between moving forward with an expensive procedure or having to turn down the emergency veterinary care that your pet needs.

However, insurance only helps in an emergency if you’ve already signed up. What’s more, to prevent pet owners from signing up and trying to use pet health insurance for a problem the vet has just diagnosed, most pet insurance companies implement a waiting period before coverage kicks in.

To ensure your pet gets the most out of their health insurance, sign up for a policy as soon as you adopt your new family member. Most pet health insurance policies do not cover preexisting conditions, so if you wait to get coverage until your dog or cat is older, there will likely be several conditions that your vet has diagnosed in the preceding years that will not be covered.

What to Consider When Shopping for a Pet Health Insurance Policy

Sold on the idea of insurance but not sure where to start? We’ve put together a list of the very best pet insurance companies in the industry as a solid starting place. Among the top insurers are TrupanionHealthy PawsLemonade and Figo.

When selecting the best pet insurance company for your pet’s health and your financial situation, consider the following:

Deductibles vs. Premiums

Higher-deductible health insurance means lower monthly payments (or premiums), but that also means you will have to pay more out of pocket for emergency medical expenses before insurance kicks in. You’ll have to strike the balance between higher deductibles and higher premiums that works best for your personal budget, but never choose a plan with a deductible that you won’t be able to meet, as that defeats the purpose of having health insurance altogether.

Most plans have an annual deductible, but Trupanion offers a more unusual solution: a lifetime per-incident or per-condition deductible. For example, if your pet develops a chronic issue, like hypothyroidism, which might require regular blood work and medication for the rest of their life, you’ll only have to meet that deductible once. From then on out, all care related to that condition is covered by insurance. If you adopt a breed that is famous for a specific chronic issue, this could be a good policy for you.

Coinsurance vs. Premiums

Once insurance kicks in, you may still be responsible for a portion of the bill, just like with human health insurance policies. For example, if a policy advertises 20% coinsurance, you will be responsible for paying 20% of all vet bills after you’ve hit your deductible. Like higher deductibles, higher-coinsurance plans usually yield lower monthly premiums for a policy.


Not all pet health insurance policies are created equal. Most companies offer as basic option that covers illness and injury only; usually, these companies also have policies that include wellness coverage and even death-related coverage (euthanasia, cremation, etc.). The extent of the coverage defines the cost of the policy; if you are comfortable paying for wellness visits on your own, you will likely save money by skipping that coverage and just paying for annual physicals and vaccines out of pocket.

Some policies exclude specific conditions, like hip dysplasia in certain breeds. Others allow for preexisting conditions, but often at a higher premium. Consider carefully any coverages you think you’ll need, which might vary by the breed or age of your dog or cat.

Lemonade is high on personalized plans so that you get the coverage that your pet needs. You don’t want to pay for coverage that you don’t need but you also want to make sure the coverage you are paying for is exactly what you need.

Animal Type

Speaking of dogs and cats, most pet insurance policies focus on these common four-legged friends. However, some insurers, like Nationwide, offer coverage for pets like birds and lizards. ASPCA Pet Health Insurance even offers coverage for horses.

Paying for a Pet Emergency Without Pet Health Insurance

While pet health insurance is an ideal way to ensure you can cover emergency medical expenses, it’s only helpful if you already have it when tragedy strikes. But if you find yourself with an uninsured pet, wondering how you’ll afford the care your animal so desperately needs, there are other options to explore.

Emergency Savings

The first place to look is your own savings. If you have been able to put aside money each paycheck into an emergency fund, now is the time to utilize it. While the specifics can vary based on your personal situation, experts commonly argue that a family should have three to six months’ of living expenses set aside for emergencies. This includes necessary expenses, like mortgage or rent, groceries, utilities, health insurance, car payment (and gas and insurance) and any other recurring bills for necessary services.

However, a Bankrate survey from last year found that more than half of Americans don’t have three months’ of expenses saved up, and CNBC found that fewer than two in five Americans can rely on savings for a $1,000 emergency expense. Yet in 2020, 70% of American households had at least one pet. That means that not all pet owners can rely on their savings to cover emergency medical treatment for their pets.

If your emergency fund is nonexistent and you’’ do or pay anything to provide the best care for your pet, you do have other options that tap into your own net worth, like early withdrawals from your retirement savings. Be aware that this will result in a penalty, however, meaning you would be jeopardizing your own financial future.

A better option may be to take on debt.

Credit Cards

If you’ve been hit with an unexpected vet bill before, you may have heard your vet talk about a CareCredit credit card. This card can be used for expenses outside the realm of veterinary medical care (like for human dermatology, vision and dental), but tread lightly. While CareCredit advertises options like short- and long-term financing and no-interest periods, this card is famous for its predatory APR (currently 26.99%) that just prolongs the hardship of medical debt for those living paycheck to paycheck.

Instead, consider opening a new regular credit card when faced with a devastating vet bill. While credit cards can be dangerous if you struggle to keep up with payments, they can help in emergencies. Look for a credit card that has a no-interest introductory period. If you are able to put only this medical debt on the card and pay it off before the interest kicks in, you won’t be out any extra money, but you’ll have given yourself multiple months to pay for your pet’s health care, rather than right then and there on the day of the procedure.

Even better, if you obtain a rewards credit card, you could actually earn cash back or points when using the card to pay for an emergency medical procedure. And if your credit score is high enough, you might even qualify for a sign-up bonus with a new credit card.

Personal Loans

Qualifying for a credit card, especially one with low or no interest and rewards, might be challenging and take too much time. If you need to act fast to fund your pet’s care, consider a personal loan.

Family and friends are a good place to start if you can swallow your pride and ask for money. Just be understanding if you are turned down.

If you can’t get a loan from a friend or family member, you can instead turn to a bank or credit union. While taking out a personal loan means you’ll now have to juggle minimum monthly payments and a potentially high APY, it also means you can fund your pet’s care immediately.

Payment Plans With Your Vet

If you have exhausted other options for assuming debt—or perhaps even before agreeing to a more predatory loan option like the CareCredit credit card—ask your vet if they could offer a payment plan. Typically, payment plans for veterinary bills will mean you’ll pay more in the long run, like with a credit card or personal loan; however, it is possible your vet will have a more palatable option with lower interest.

Low-Cost Clinics

If the estimated vet bill for a procedure your pet needs is too steep and the required pet care is not immediate, you can always “shop around” for veterinary care at a low-cost clinic. You can typically find low-cost clinics within veterinary schools.

Check out the state school listings at The American Veterinary Medical Association to locate schools in your area, then call those schools or visit their websites to find out if they offer such a clinic.

Local Animal Shelters and Rescue Groups

Local organizations such as the SPCA, Humane Society, county shelters and animal rescue groups may also offer low-cost clinics for everything from wellness checks and vaccinations to urgent care. If you rescued your pup from a specific organization, it couldn’t hurt to call and see if they have resources for helping with emergency pet care.


Sites like GoFundMe have made crowdsourcing easy and convenient, whether it’s for helping a family after a natural disaster, assisting someone with an unexpected financial hardship or funding someone’s medical care. If you are a pet owner in need, there is no shame in creating a GoFundMe for your own pet.

In fact, GoFundMe has its own section of the site dedicated to animal fundraisers.

Grants and Funds

But you don’t have to just rely on the generosity of friends and family on social media to fund your pet’s emergency vet care. There are a wide range of grants and funds available, offering financial assistance to pet guardians in need.

We have identified a few nonprofit organizations offering financial assistance to pet owners, but keep in mind that applying for aid does not necessarily guarantee you will receive it:

  • All Pets Wellness Foundation
  • Dylan’s Hearts
  • Friends & Vets Helping Pets
  • The Mosby Foundation
  • Paws 4 a Cure
  • Pet Assistance, Inc.
  • The Pet Fund
  • RedRover Relief
  • Rose’s Fund

You can often find more specific animal welfare funds targeted at specific conditions or breeds, as well as different geographies. If you are desperate for financial aid, do some googling with specific search terms about your pet’s breed and condition and your location.
