    Mistledrone?  Or, Is It Drone-Toe?

  3. Dinner

     

    You Will Pay More For Turkey Day Dinner This Year

    The cost of Thanksgiving dinner is up from last year…  Just a little bit, though.  It’ll cost $49.41 for ten people.  Up 37 cents from last year.  You can blame the higher cost on increases in the cost of dairy products, and miscellaneous ingredients such as coffee, sugar, eggs and sweet potatoes. At the same time, flour-based foods such as stuffing mix, pie shells and dinner rolls got a tad cheaper this year.


  4. Normal Barbie

    An artist named Nickolay Lamm has created a “Normal Barbie” that has the body of an average American woman and comes with add-ons like acne, scars and stretch marks. The dolls, which were designed last year and are now available for purchase, are intended to show kids that everyone has flaws and that they shoud be embraced. The stickers allow children to customize their dolls by adding freckles, stitches and grass stains, among other features. Lamm also made a video that shows how second graders respond to a realistically-proportioned fashion doll. The response is overwhelmingly positive, and includes comments like “I think she’s really pretty,” and “She looks like my sister.”



  5. Bored? Try Messing With Grandpa…

    “Worcestershire sauce” is hard enough to say without an accent, so it’s no surprise that 75-year-old Italian grandpa Pasquale Sciarappa had a tough time with it!

    Rockin a shirt that says, “No Sweat, No Sauce,” Grandpa Pasquale lends his cooking talents to his YouTube cooking series, “OrsaraRecipes.” In the video, he trips up on the word “Worcestershire.” Poor guy!

  6. Johnny Depp At Hollywood Film Awards

    On Friday, Johnny Depp presented the award for Best Documentary at The Hollywood Film Awards.  Some people are saying  (Because of the way he was goofing around and slurring his words) that he was wasted.  What do you think…  Click Here To Watch The Video


  7. First Snow

    Old man winter reared his ugly mug our way this last week with a foot of unexpected snow.  Well, unexpected is strong because we were anticipating some snow, just not that much.  What did we learn over that 12 hour period?  We learned we lost some driving skills over the spring and summer, snow is prettiest in a glass globe and the biggest lesson was to expect the unexpected.  But that is what Erie is all about! Unpredicted, unforeseen and unanticipated.  That is when we shine most.  Go ahead Mother Nature bring it.   Erie isn’t scared of no polar vortex, or whatever will become the current catch phrase.  Give us your best, we know it could be as last as April before we see a blossom.  That’s ok.  We’re a hearty breed.  Let’s all meet at Sara’s for some curly fries in May.

    Twenty-three years into their marriage, Kay lost her wedding ring.

    Dave finally found the band after years of searching. He had been helping his wife clean the house when he found a little wooden box.  Inside… The ring!

    He wanted to find a unique way to give it back to her.  Their daughter suggested he propose…  So he did with the daughter recording it on her cellphone.
