SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

A survey of 2,000 parents with kids under 18 looked at how they hold on to the memories of their child’s younger years, and found that the average parent misses their child being 2 years old the most, and that’s the age they’d most like to re-live. The average parent was found to hold on to 9 items from their child’s early years. The most common keepsakes are their baby’s clothes (51%), a copy of their footprint or handprint (50%), and their pregnancy test or ultrasound images (48%). Others have kept a memento that belonged to their baby — like a lock of hair (35%) or a baby tooth (28%). Favorite milestones that parents would like to re-live were their baby’s first step (44%), first laugh or smile (43%) and first time sitting up (11%).

Researchers in Ireland found that children born during Covid-19 lockdowns had an altered gut microbiome – in a good way. The gut microbiome is the ecosystem of ‘good’ and ‘bad’ bacteria that aid in digestion, destroys harmful bacteria and helps control the immune system. The University College Cork team believes this led ‘Covid babies’ to have lower than expected rates of allergic conditions, such as food allergies, compared to pre-pandemic babies. They also required fewer antibiotics to treat illnesses.


Dwayne Johnson now officially owns the phrase “The most electrifying man in sports and entertainment.” The actor, who broke out as a WWE star, has gained rights to a number of nicknames, insults and catchphrases from his time in the ring, including “Candy Ass,” “Jabroni,” and “If you smell what The Rock is cooking.” The transfer of the rights to the names and phrases comes as part of his deal to join the board of directors of TKO Group Holdings, the company that merged WWE and the UFC. Johnson has the rights to his famous ring name, “The Rock” and more than 2 dozen additional names and taglines, including: “Rock Nation”, “The People’s Champion,” and “Team Bring it”.

Bruce Willis’ wife is reminding his fans not to believe everything they read. Emma Heming Willis took to social media to dispel reports about her husband since his condition progressed from aphasia to frontotemporal dementia. In an Instagram Story, she said: “I’m just scrolling, minding my own business, and just saw a headline that had to do with my own family. The headline basically says there is no more joy in my husband. Now, I can just tell you, that is far from the truth.” She continued, saying: “I need society and whosoever is writing these stupid headlines to stop scaring people….to think that once they get a diagnosis of some kind of neurocognitive disease that ‘That’s it. It’s over’… No. It is the complete opposite of that, okay?”

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by

An untitled sequel to “The Lego Movie 2” is reportedly being worked on.


Auditions continued last night on Season 22 of “American Idol”. Here are some facts about the singing show that producers probably would prefer you didn’t know…

Over the last decade, just one winner has had an actual commercial hit. Chayce Beckham’s ‘23’ went platinum, and peaked at #17 on the US Country chart.

6 finalists have died – all in the last 10 years. R.I.P. to CJ Harris, Leah LaBelle, Michael Johns, Nikki McKibbin, Rickey Smith and Willie Spence.

Although at one time an American Idol winner could easily make $1 million, that has changed. Nowadays, you’ll get $250,000 total if you finish your record

Judges make the big money. While no one is paid as handsomely as Simon Cowell was back in 2010 ($36 million per year), In 2020, Forbes quoted $25 million for Katy Perry, $12 million for Luke Bryan and $10 million for Lionel Richie.

Just Sam Returned to Busking: Former winner “Just Sam” had to return to singing on New York City subways, even after winning Season 18. Not a great look for American Idol. What’s more, he also had to pay back Hollywood Records for songs, after his debut album never materialized.

While it’s a stretch to say the show is “scripted,” there are many anecdotes about judges being overly briefed by producers. And Sanjaya Malakar even claimed he was encouraged to look like he was feuding with his sister when they both auditioned.

While technically, contestants can choose any song for their audition, the network’s ability to clear the rights to use the song on TV may determine if they get air time.

Some artists have refused to let American Idol use their songs. Kelly Clarkson was one, but later relented. And at one point, Simon Cowell had to personally ask for permission for a singer to use a U2 song (on “America’s Got Talent”).

The big winner is the network. Early on, American Idol made Fox more than $800 million per season, but even now, ABC collects about $250 million.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

If your name is ‘Ryan’, I’ve gotta ask: Where were you on Saturday? That was the day of the first-ever “Ryan Rodeo”. It was put on by the organization “Ryan Meetup”, which caters strictly to people named…well, you know. The goal of its meeting on Saturday in Austin TX was to break the Guinness World Record for the largest same-name gathering, which was set in 2017, when 2,325 people named ‘Ivan’ met up in Bosnia and Herzegovina. An organizer (named Ryan, of course) wrote on the events page: “It’s fixin’ to be a rip-roarin’ time, as we gather round and revel in the beauty of our shared name. Don’t be surprised if some Ryans start square dancin’ — after all, you can’t spell country without R-Y.” Everyone there was required to show I.D. proving their name is Ryan, and organizers promised they’d “be layin’ down the law to ensure no Bryans get in.” Why? The group’s website explains that “Bryans are just B-list Ryans.” LINK:

The average car spends about 95% of its lifetime parked, according to Donald Shoup’s “The High Cost of Free Parking”.

Vehicles travel an average of 1,825 miles (2,937km) each year for every curb space available, just looking for a place to park.

The largest parking structure in the world is at Canada’s West Edmonton Mall, with 20,000 spots available.

If New York’s Empire State Building was built with today’s requirements, it would need to provide space for 12 city blocks worth of parking spaces.

New York City is currently owed $1 billion in unpaid parking and speeding tickets.

76% of US college students say they have to pay to park on campus.

57% of UK drivers say their heart rate surges whenever they attempt to parallel park.
