Britney Spears Attacks Family In Post

Britney Spears says the court-ordered conservatorship which has put her father in charge of her life and career “killed my dreams.“  In a searing, profanity-laced Instagram post, she lashed out at her dad Jamie Spears, at her sister and at critics.  She slammed people who leave comments on videos of herself doing dance routines in her home that she often posts on her Instagram account.  She insisted that she won’t be performing live again as long as her dad continues to rule over her.  “For those of you who choose to criticize my dancing videos … look I’m not gonna be performing on any stages anytime soon with my dad handling what I wear, say, do, or think!! I’ve done that for the past 13 years,” she wrote on Saturday night.  “…No I’m not gonna put on heavy makeup and try try try on stage again and not be able to do the real deal with remixes of my songs for years and begging to put my new music in my show for MY fans … so I quit !!!!” she continued.  She also wrote about sister Jamie Lynn Spears: “I don’t like that my sister showed up at an awards show and performed MY SONGS to remixes !!!!!.”  “My so-called support system hurt me deeply !!!!,” the post read. “This conservatorship killed my dreams … so all I have is hope and hope is the only thing in this world that is very hard to kill … yet people still try!!!”  She added: “I didn’t like the way the documentaries bring up humiliating moments from the past … I’m way past all that and have been for a long time !!!! And for women who say it’s weird the way I still have hope for fairy tales … go f–k yourself!!!!!
******That doesn’t sound crazy at all!!! Come on!!!
*******Maybe she just needs a long rest!!!

Bennifer Takes The Kids House Hunting

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez were spotted house hunting again on Friday, but this time her kids were in tow. Max and Emme joined Lopez and Affleck while the two were house hunting in Santa Monica.   Lopez was also seen out-and-about on Thursday house shopping with her beau. It was reported earlier this year that Lopez is looking to relocated from Miami to Los Angeles, where he currently resides.  A source previously told TMZ that while the two have been seen looking for houses together, they don’t yet have plans to move in together just yet – and that Affleck is just lending a helping hand.  Among the properties they toured was a Beverly Park mansion listed for $63.95 million. The over-31,000 square-foot home sits on a 1.4-acre plot on Billionaire’s Row.

Owl And Turtle Stuck Together

The Animal Welfare League of Arlington untangled an owl and turtle that got stuck together.  AWL Arlington discovered the animals were stuck together after receiving a call about an owl in a resident’s back yard that could not fly, prompting Deputy Animal Control Officer Ryan Robinson to investigate, KOMO News reported.  Robinson found the owl with a claw clamped between the turtle’s top and bottom shell, and brought them back to the shelter, where he and Chief of Animal Control Jennifer Toussaint dislodged the claw to gently separate the two.  “This was a first for our Animal Control team — an owl and a turtle stuck together!” AWL Arlington tweeted with link to TikTok video of the team’s separation of the animals.  “The owl had a minor injury and the turtle was uninjured,” a video caption shows.  See the pics HERE.

Mac And Cheese Ice Cream

Brooklyn-based Van Leeuwen Ice Cream churned the cheesiness of Kraft Macaroni and Cheese into their ice cream to create the Kraft Macaroni & Cheese-flavored ice cream, according to a Kraft Heinz Company statement.  “We know that there is nothing more refreshing on a hot summer day than ice cream,” Kraft Macaroni & Cheese Sr. Associate Brand Manager Emily Violett said in the statement. “That is why we wanted to combine two of the most iconic comfort foods to create an ice cream with the unforgettable flavor of Kraft Macaroni & Cheese we all grew up with.”  “As big fans of Van Leeuwen, we knew they’d be the perfect partner to create this ice cream with us. Not only does it taste delicious, but it’s also made with high quality ingredients and contains no artificial flavors, preservatives, or dyes just like our Kraft Macaroni & Cheese,” Violett added.  The macaroni and cheese maker, which merged with Heinz six years ago to form North America’s third-largest food and beverage company, announced the rollout of the limited-edition ice cream earlier this week to coincide with National Macaroni & Cheese Day.  See the pic HERE.

Naked Woman Stuck Between Walls

A naked California woman was rescued Tuesday after she got wedged between the concrete walls of two buildings, authorities said.  Workers at the nearby S & C Auto Body shop told KTLA that they had heard the woman yelling for help – but they were unable to pin down her location and called police for help.   “We called the cops and the cops came in and got on the roof and looked between the two walls and she’s all naked,” the worker said. “She was in pain. She was screaming in pain. She was upside down too.”  The woman was stuck in a space less than a foot wide, according to fire officials.  After a cautious and technical operation, firefighters have gotten the victim out. Our paramedics will be assessing her now. We appreciate everyone has questions. We will release details when they become available. Firefighters were unable to reach the woman and had to perform a technical rescue that required cutting open the concrete wall, the OCFA said.  Rescuers worked for over two hours before finally pulling the woman through the space firefighters had cut in the wall.

Guy At The Beach Buried In Sand

An 18-year-old man had to be rescued from a hole he dug on the beach after it collapsed on him.  Emergency services were called by the coastguard to Fistral Beach in England on Thursday.  They found the man trapped in a hole he had dug in the sand after it fell in on him, Devon and Cornwall Police said.  The force said that “friends and beachgoers all worked together to dig the man to safety”.  He was allowed to return home after being checked over by medics, Newquay Community Fire Station said on Facebook.  “This could have easily resulted in crushing or suffocation,” they wrote.  “Please don’t dig huge holes in the sand, sand is partial to collapse and the dry weight is around a ton per meter cubed.  You wouldn’t dig a hole in the garden and let your children climb in; please don’t do it on a beach either.”
*********He didn’t have a grain of sense!!!
*******His name is now “Sandy!!!”
*****He’ll still be finding that sand months from now!!!!







25 Ways to Beat the Heat of a Summer Electric Bill

The Penny Hoarder

  1. Get a Free Home Energy Assessment

Many power providers offer free home energy assessments or home energy optimization kits. Xcel Energy, which serves much of the northern midwest and mountain regions of the U.S., provides a free virtual visit with a Home Energy Squad member, followed by a free kit to optimize your residential electrical usage.


  1. Seal Cracks and Leaks is How to Lower Electric Bill

When the heat is high, don’t let any precious air conditioning escape due to drafty doors and leaky windows. Seal these money-draining spaces with inexpensive draft tape, often ranging from $9 to $15 on popular sites like Amazon.


  1. Upgrade to Efficient Equipment with a Rebate

Although upgrading air conditioning systems, thermostats, and other energy-related systems can be pricey, many electrical companies offer rebate programs. ConEd, which serves New York City, offers rebates on smart thermostats.

It always helps to have a little money in the bank. Get great ideas about how to build your savings delivered straight to your inbox in The Penny Hoarder Daily.


  1. If You Have a Smart Thermostat, Use It

For those who already have a Nest or other programmable thermostat in your home, take the time to program it. Smart thermostats offer zonal and timed heating and cooling, which on average will save most home owners around 15% on their cooling bills.


  1. Take a Time Out on Energy Consumption

No, not that kind of time out. To cheaply lower your electric bill, consider adding an outlet timer to window unit air conditioners. These helpful gadgets cost $10 to $20 and will make your home more energy efficient and limit the amount of “phantom power” (the power your devices leech from outlets even when not turned on) contributing to monthly energy bills.


  1. Become a Fan of Fans

Fans are a tried-and-true way to cool down in warmer months. Running strategically placed fans throughout your home uses less energy than an air conditioner and can leverage cooler evenings to provide a naturally pleasant temperature without the energy bill hike.


  1. Let Mother Nature Do the Work

Although typical clothes dryers do not themselves increase electric bills all that much (they cost about $100 per year in energy), leaving a hot dryer running multiple times a week can heat up your living space, resulting in you (understandably) cranking up the A/C. Instead, try air drying clothes when possible. Take advantage of the summer sun and heat with an outdoor clothesline.


  1. Invest in One-Time Duct Cleaning

A major cause of ineffective or inefficient home cooling may be from clogged ductwork. Over the years, debris like dust, pet hair, and dander can accumulate in vents and make it difficult for air to flow smoothly throughout your space. Cleaner ducts = less need to turn up the A/C. Fortunately, HVAC system maintenance is pretty affordable, and a one-time vent cleaning will only take $200-$300 out of your home maintenance budget.


  1. Change Your Air Filter for Lower Electricity Bill

Air filters do just that — filter out tiny particles and debris generally undetectable to the human eye. This provides us with clean air circulating in our homes. However, these filters need to be changed about every six months in order to work properly. Clogged filters inhibit effective air flow and can lead to higher energy costs due to forcing your air systems to work harder to pump out air.


  1. Run Appliances at Night

Some electric companies charge higher rates during the day (aka peak hours) and lower rates in the evening (aka off-peak hours). It can help save a few bucks here and there to run larger appliances like dishwashers, clothing dryers, and washing means while you’re getting some shut-eye. And in the heat of summer saving even a few pennies can really add up.


  1. Make the Move to LED

Incandescent bulbs release about 90% of their energy as heat. Couple that with the fact that they generally are not energy efficient and it’s enough to make the case to switch to LED bulbs. LED bulbs can save consumers as much as $75 per month and they give off little-to-no heat.


  1. Seal the Chimney

Sealing off your chimney — or at least closing the damper — prevents chilled air from leaking out and hot air from wafting in. There are lots of different ways to seal a chimney, from a $50 chimney balloon to using plastic to cover the hearth. Consult with a professional to find out what’s right for your home to lower your electricity bill.


  1. Replace Window Screens for Cool Air

As we already mentioned, leveraging Mother Nature when possible to decrease your bill and your energy consumption is a great idea. In this case, replacing snared, ripped window screens with relatively inexpensive new ones will make you more inclined to leave the windows open for a pleasant breeze in the evening while keeping bugs out.


  1. Insulate Hidden Areas

Any item in your house that has pipes behind it (toilets, sinks, etc.) likely is simply sitting in an open hole in the wall with no insulation. This means that in the summer cool air could be leaking out or hot air could be seeping in. Consulting with a professional to learn more about how adding insulation behind toilets and sinks can help make your home more energy efficient by eliminating these air leaks across your house.


  1. Dinner for Breakfast

Well, not actually. But being smart about using the oven can keep your home cooler and result in lower electrical bills. Cooking with the oven in the morning when it’s cooler can prevent your home from overheating when cooking at 5 p.m. Likewise, using an oven closer to those off-peak hours means it may not cost as much to run.


  1. Upgrade the Blinds

It’s no secret that sun-facing windows can cause a room — or the entire house — to heat up beyond what’s comfortable. Flimsy blinds are more than just ineffective, they could be causing your electric bill to rise. Spending around $30 for a set of blackout curtains will help keep your home cooler by entirely blocking out the sun, decreasing your need to crank the A/C. This will save energy too.


  1. Close the Door

If you live in a multiroom home, closing the doors to unused rooms will consolidate your A/C usage to fewer rooms, and it will keep that room much cooler. Pick a room or two to hang out in for the majority of the day, and shut the doors to the others to naturally create zonal cooling. A painless way to lower your electric bill.


  1. Use Less Water

Although most folks are billed for water separately from power, you can save a pretty penny by being more conscious about how much water your family uses in the summer, when droughts and water shortages are common. Instead of filling up a multigallon kiddie pool at home for children or furry friends to cool off in, consider taking advantage of public pools and beaches, many of which cost just a few bucks for admission.


  1. Reduce Phantom Power

Even if something like a lamp or TV are not turned on, the fact that they remain plugged in means those items could be leeching “phantom power” from your home, and jacking up your electric bill. Phantom power refers to the electricity consumed by objects when they are off or in standby mode. This allows them to quickly turn on, but means your electric bill pays the price. Consider unplugging lamps, appliances, and more when not in use to save on your next energy payment.


  1. Add an Energy Efficient Power Strip

While you’re unplugging unused objects, think about adding in an energy efficient power strip to cut down on your bill. Some estimate that installing energy efficient power strips (which are only $20 to $30 each) can decrease home power use from 20 to 48%, which translates to more than just a few dollars back in your pocket.


  1. Leverage Public Spaces

With the worst of the pandemic behind us, many public spaces such as coffee shops and coworking spaces are once again open. Taking your work, reading, or podcast listening to a public space with air conditioning means you can leave the home A/C and lights off for a few hours, saving you anywhere from $10 to $20 per day and significantly decreasing home electricity usage thus lowering your energy bill.


  1. Lower the Hot Water Heater Temperature

The default temperature for water heaters is 140 degrees, which wastes between $36 and $61 a year, according to the Department of Energy.

According to the DOE, lowering the temp to 120 degrees is perfectly fine for the majority of the population. If you or a member of your household has a chronic respiratory disease or a suppressed immune system, though, it may be best to keep your water heater set to the default temp.


  1. Decrease Door Drafts with a Draft Stopper

Using the aptly named draft stopper on your doors can further prevent air leaks throughout your home. For only $8, you can keep prized cold air better circulating in your space without losing it to wasteful door leaks. Another painless way to save money.


  1. Use Exhaust Fans

Exhaust fans are those that are generally already built into your home, like the kind above a stove or shower. These fans do an exceptionally good job at circulating air and removing moisture and humidity from that air. Running these fans even when not cooking or in the shower can improve air circulation and decrease the need to crank up the A/C and your power usage.


  1. Go Through a Checklist

Owning or renting a home comes with all sorts of maintenance. It can be hard to keep track of what to do at what time of year in order to keep your space clean and efficient. Referring to a home checklist like this one can ensure you are ticking off the correct boxes to prepare your home for warmer months, potentially saving you some dough on electric bills throughout the summer.
