THIS WEEK'S DEAR JOHN LETTER!
My family is very close and we are planning a big Christmas celebration at my house. It's here because I just had a baby All is good. Except one thing. My sister started telling people months ago that I was going to name the baby Jenn, after her. She told so many people that everyone believes it. In fact, my sister started believing it herself. She visited in the hospital and brought a onesie with the name Baby Jenn on it. The problem is that we had no intention of naming her that and just kind of let it go. But now we realize that not saying anything was like confirming it was going to happen. It's not. The baby's name is Hannah, after my great-grandmother. I still haven't told them. And I know that the longer this goes on, the harder it's going to get. But I don't want to ruin Christmas. And if I tell them now, it WILL. But if I wait until after-and everyone sees this baby they call Jenn-it's going to be so much worse. Please don't lecture at me about how I got into this situation. Just help me fix it. How do we tell her and everyone else?

From the department of “Thank-you, Captain Obvious” comes this story. According to a new survey, most of us enjoy the holiday treats and drinks that are so common this time of year, but are dreading what they might do to the waistline. The poll of 2,000 adults in the US found that although 72% of us definitely look forward to the treats around the holiday season, 65% agree this is the worst time of the year for their diet. Three-quarters say they tend to eat more often during the day. Big surprise there? No? Other findings from the survey:
• 51% said they “often” or “always” feel like they ate too much food during the holidays.
a result, 56% suffer from constipation, 49% get indigestion, and 45%
report getting acid reflux.
I could get into even MORE details about that, but I’ll spare you. Instead, here are the top 3 foods that people said cause “digestive issues” at this time of year:
1. Turkey (reported by 44%)
2. Pecan pie (41%)
…and the top 3 drinks:
1. Chocolate milk (45%)
2. Non-alcoholic eggnog (38%)
3. Hot cocoa/hot chocolate (38%)

have come up with a toothpaste that could end severe peanut
allergies. You may know that for years, doctors have treated
allergies by introducing small amounts of the dangerous allergen over
time, which desensitizes the patient. Experts at the American College
of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology say their process, called Oral
Mucosal Immunotherapy, involves a toothpaste containing tiny amounts
of allergenic peanut proteins, designed to build patients’ immunity
over time. In a trial, every participant tolerated the highest dose
of the peanut toothpaste without any moderate or severe

Twenty years after the release of “Freaky Friday”, Jamie Lee Curtis has reunited with her onscreen daughter Lindsay Lohan — to tease a sequel. On Friday, the Oscar-winning actress took to Instagram to post a selfie with her former co-star. Tagging Lohan and Disney, Curtis: “Too late. YOU GREW UP and SO BEAUTIFULLY!…the strike is over so hopefully, we can switch places again in the near future”. The pair famously switched places as a mother and daughter who swap bodies in Disney’s 2003 comedy Freaky Friday.
With the SAG-AFTRA strike officially gone like the wind, it’s time for the studios to get back to work. The 118-day interruption has caused the delay of some movie’s release dates, including Marvel’s “Deadpool 3”, which will now open on July 26, 2024, instead of May 3rd. The 4th “Captain America” flick, “Brave New World,” will now debut on Feb. 14, 2025 — not in July 2024, as previously planned. And superhero film “Thunderbolts” was set to fly into cinemas on Dec. 20, 2024, but it has been pushed to July 25, 2025.
CBS has moved the 50th annual Daytime Emmy Awards ceremony — which was initially set to air on June 16 — to Dec. 15. This will be the first major awards show since the Writers Guild of America and SAG-AFTRA launched their strikes, and the now-ended labor stoppages are what prompted CBS and the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences to postpone the event. “Entertainment Tonight’s” Kevin Frazier and Nischelle Turner will host the ceremony, which will take place at Westin Bonaventure in Los Angeles, and will air on CBS and Paramount+.
