Auntie Anneâ€™s Â® to host â€Free Pretzel Dayâ€ in celebration of all participants
After reviewing 2,000 entries of children ages 6 to 12 from Hawaii to Rhode Island, Auntie Anneâ€™s Pretzels announced 11-year-old Daniel Brocco from Tenafly, NJ as one of 20 national finalists in Auntie Anneâ€™s Pretzel Perfect Tongue Twister Contest.
Daniel twisted and contorted his tongue to say â€œPicky Pretzel People Pick Pretzel Perfect Pretzels.â€
That thong bikini bottom and barely-there top may raise eyebrows among onlookers at the local pool, but it took a lot less bare skin to turn heads 60 years ago.
The first time Amy Hardwick, 52, sported a bikini as a 15-year-old in the late 1960s, it took her father mere seconds to express shock at his daughter's newest piece of swimwear.
"I went in the yard to lay out and I heard, 'AMY SUE!'" the Virginia woman recalled, laughing. "And my dad was standing there." By today's standards, Hardwick wouldn't call that particular swimsuit a bikini, as its high waist and full back offered more coverage than what many teen girls wear to school these days, she said. But back then, showing even a glimpse of bare midriff was considered scandalous - at least among the older generation.

"I therefore urge you â€“ in the name of good government â€“ to do the right thing and voluntarily provide a thorough explanation of these two allegations." -- Paul Aronsohn
Paramus -- Congressional Candidate Paul Aronsohn sent a letter to incumbent Congressman Scott Garrett requesting a "thorough explanation" of possible ethics violations by the Congressman. The full text of the letter is below.
cell phones take pictures, play games, and let you surf the Web. But
the phones have tiny buttons and hard-to-read screens, not very
user-friendly for older people. And this generation is not likely to
use all the minutes and data traffic allotted in a monthly plan.
there are phones and plans geared specifically to the elderly. You have
to look for them, because most aren't available in cell stores. So,
here are some products aimed at older folks:
With sweat soaking his tattered tank top, Petty Officer 1st Class David Goggins hit the finish-line tape high on the slopes of California's Mount Whitney. He took fifth place recently in a 30-hour foot race from the floor of Death Valley.
For Goggins, a Navy SEAL based in Coronado, Calif., running a 135-mile ultra-marathon in 120-degree heat across a desert and three mountain ranges is more than an adventure.
It's a job.
"One hundred and thirty-five miles - that's a lot of time to meet people," said Goggins, a SEAL recruiter.
He will compete in more races during the months to come. His work is part of the military's new efforts to boost significantly the ranks of special operations forces, including the SEALs, by attracting high-endurance athletes.
