Tom Brady’s Ex Throws Shade

Tom Brady’s ex, Bridget Moynahan, shared a quote about relationships ending from marriage therapist Vienna Pharaon — the timing of which will raise an eyebrow or two as Brady himself is on the brink of divorce from Gisele Bündchen.  “Not everything is meant to be mended. Not all relationships are meant to last a lifetime,” the quote, posted to social media, reads.  ”Sometimes we have to learn to get comfortable with the gifts that are offered through the ruptures and the endings instead of the stories of repair and reconciliation.”  She also included Pharaon’s caption that further delved into the discussion of breakups and how they can provide some of people’s “greatest gifts.”  “It’s much harder to be face to face with this. Our tolerance for it is low. And yet, some of our greatest gifts, offerings, and lessons come from this space,” the expert wrote.  “The relationship that doesn’t work out but teaches you something important about yourself. The rupture that doesn’t get mended but shows you something new about a pattern of yours.”
********She’s been waiting a long time to lecture him like this!!!
*******She’s entitled, since he dumped WHILE SHE WAS PREGNANT!!
********Children also get a “gift” from divorce: sadness, anxiety, fear and a lifetime of therapy… or psych drugs!!!

Matthew Perry Spent Big Bucks Trying To Sober Up

Matthew Perry revealed he’s spent nearly $10 million over the course of his life to get sober from his alcohol and drug addictions.  Talking to the New York Times, he’s been 18-months clean of all substances, which meant he was newly sober by the time the “Friends” reunion aired in May 2021.  “I’ve probably spent $9 million or something trying to get sober,” he estimated.  While Perry is aware that he has resources most addicts don’t, he also said that they have “the gift of anonymity,” which means they’re spared the humiliation of having their darkest moments exposed.  He detailed his long history with substance abuse, which began with imbibing alcohol at age 14 and turned into a full-blown opioid addiction that would ultimately cause him to suffer a nearly fatal health scare in 2019.  “The doctors told my family that I had a 2 percent chance to live,” he previously told People of the moment his colon burst.
*********Can he get a refund???
*****People don’t change until they absolutely have to!!
******In AA, they call it “your personal bottom,” when you don’t want to go any lower. For some people, that’s death!!

Brad Pitt Upsets Many Formula 1 Fans

Brad Pitt, who will produce and star in an upcoming movie about Formula 1, is under fire for snubbing one of the sport’s most beloved commentators.  He gave Sky Sports pundit Martin Brundle the cold shoulder on the starting grid at the US Grand Prix on Sunday.  The British journalist, known for his star-studded, pre-race grid walks, attempted to speak with Pitt while live on-air.  Brundle inquired about his upcoming F1 project, which Lewis Hamilton is co-producing, before asking whether he had enjoyed the race weekend in Austin, Texas.  “Thank you, man,” Pitt simply replied, before brushing past Brundle.  “Obviously they’re known as Pitt stops, if they don’t want you to talk to Brad Pitt,” the longtime F1 reporter quipped.  Fans of the sport weren’t pleased that Pitt had spent three days conducting movie research with team bosses and drivers alike, but seemingly didn’t realize who Brundle was.  “Brad Pitt making a movie about F1 but not knowing who the voice of the sport Martin Brundle is,” journalist Omid Scobie tweeted about the incident.  “Brad Pitt.. the man starring in an F1 film won’t even stop for 30 seconds to speak to Martin Brundle… if you don’t wanna be interviewed, get off the grid and make way for people who do,” another person chimed in.  A third fan wrote, “Not sure I understand the logic of Brad Pitt not wanting to spend just a moment to talk to Martin Brundle during the grid walk. I mean, this is his moment to connect with those F1 fans that would see his F1 movie.”  See the video HERE.

Coyote Trapped In Grille Of Car

Workers at a car dealership in Florida examined a car that was dropped off for service and made a surprising discovery — a coyote wedged in the front grille.  The St. Francis Wildlife Association in Quincy said in a Facebook post that a rescuer was dispatched to the Toyota dealership in Tallahassee when garage workers preparing to service a car that had been dropped off Thursday discovered a live coyote embedded in the grille.  Dealership technicians removed the front of the vehicle to allow the rescuer to safely extract the animal.  “Always check your vehicle after a strike with a wild animal when safe to do so! Not only is it important to check if the animal is still alive so we can assist right away; it also is important to check your car to see if it’s still safe to be driven,” the post said.  The rescue group said in a follow-up post that the coyote underwent surgery for a leg injury and is expected to make a full recovery.  See the pics HERE.

Girls Ends Up Having 2 Fathers

A Georgia TikTok user says two men discovered they were both fathers to a young girl when they came to pick her up from the school where she works.  In a series of videos posted by @Sheena_20200 – who FOX 28 said works in the front office – the men came in before dismissal earlier this month – each claiming the girl was their daughter and that they wanted to check her out for the day.  “And so, they both look at each other, and the dad was like, ‘Why are you checking my child out? Who are you?'” Sheena Jackson said in the video. “And he was like, ‘Who are you? What do you mean? I’m her dad,'” the other reportedly responded.  Jackson said that both of them were listed as emergency contacts for the girl and that their IDs had been checked.  The principal of the school told Jackson to call the mother, and Jackson said the mother started “screaming and crying” while the dads were “going in.”  The men were separated as they waited for the mother to arrive at the school.  “When she got to the school, you know, one of the daddies ran in the parking lot to her. Like, ‘What’s going on? What’s going on? Why you didn’t tell me?'” she recounted. “So, we ran out in the parking lot with them. You all how about he hit her. He hit the mama.”   Jackson said that the mother said she had been telling both men that they were the father of the girl – who was not present for the alleged incident.  “Nobody ever knew anything…. This was crazy. But, at the end of the day, the police [were] there. One of the daddies got locked up. You know, mama went to the EMS. Grandma had to come get the child, because nobody could get the child at that point,” she said. “But, it was a mess…. It was a mess.”

Workers Find Mercedes Buried In A Backyard

Homeowners in California’s Silicon Valley discovered a buried car while working on a landscaping project Thursday morning, police said.    Officers with the Atherton Police Department responded to the residence in the 300 block of Stockbridge Avenue regarding a report of a buried vehicle.  The vehicle was approximately 4 to 5 feet underground when discovered and contained unused bags of concrete, police said. A contractor told KTVU the car was a Mercedes.  Investigators brought cadaver dogs to the scene because of the “unknown nature” of why the vehicle was buried. Police said the dogs made a “slight notification” of possible human remains, but none have been discovered as of early Friday morning.  Atherton police also contacted the San Mateo Crime Lab, which sent technicians to assist with the excavation.   Police said the vehicle was likely buried in the 1990s before the current homeowner occupied the home. Investigators remained at the scene through the evening.

Teen’s Favorite Places To Eat

Chick-fil-A has been revealed to be Generation Z’s favorite place to grab a bite in a recent survey.  According to a Piper Sandler study, 14,500 teens in 47 states were asked what their favorite restaurants were.  Fifteen percent of participants noted that the fast food chain famous for its breaded chicken, waffle fries, mac ‘n’ cheese and Southern hospitality was a treasured eatery.  About 12% of teens loved Starbucks, followed by Chipotle (7%), McDonald’s (6%) and Olive Garden (3%).
***********Sadly, Olive Garden is the only Italian Restaurant most kids know about!!
*******Chick-fil-A locations do an average of $8 million in business every year. Their biggest location in the country makes $17.8 million!! That’s.. a lot of money for one fast-food location!!!








Trying to build new habits? Stick to these 5 wise tips to stay on the right path

Health Shots



  1. Don’t rely solely on motivation to build new habits

Motivation, however powerful, is not a constant factor. On some days you may be filled with encouragement. But those days might be far and few.

Instead, you should focus on establishing a system, discipline or accountability that will get you through the monotonous days when you might feel like giving up.


  1. Set specific goals

Unless you have a goal post in sight, it is likely you wouldn’t know just where and how to kick. It will always help to be specific about your goals of building a new habit. What is it that you want to achieve and by when? Generic goal-setting may not turn out as effective as being specific about it when you want to build a new habit.

So, try putting specifics like time, duration, place etc. the next time you set a goal for yourself. By the way, do you know about the SMART plan to achieve your goals?


  1. Avoid biting off more than you can chew

You might somehow manage to work your arms, legs and core muscles in a single day at the gym. But when the next day comes, you are faced with the expectation to achieve at least what you did yesterday, if not more. And so, the task becomes too daunting to follow through.

But on the other hand, if you divide your task into small chunks – like leg days are Mondays, core muscle exercises on Tuesdays, and so on – you will find your fitness or life goals more likely to be accomplished. Learning how to be a better organizer can be one of the ways to build new habits.


  1. Keep a check on your progress

It is easier to feel cornered by all the things you can’t do, if you don’t remind yourself of the things you can. This where it is important that when you build new habits, keeping a track of your progress is most crucial. It gives you a positive mindset to keep you going.

Tracking your progress doesn’t have to be very complex. It can be a simple tick on the calendar after reaching your daily goal.


  1. Be accountable

Establishing some form of accountability can make deviating from your path less appealing. So, find a way to impose a check on yourself. For instance, if you skip exercise for a day, you might want to walk back home from work or use stairs for the whole day. That’s how you can build good habits.
