Tornado Carries Family Photo 130 Miles: NBC says a New Albany, Indiana resident recently found a photograph stuck to her windshield following the devastating tornadoes in Kentucky.

Katie later used Facebook to track down the photo's owner, who lives in Dawson Springs, Kentucky. She plans to return the picture as soon as possible. Katie says, "It's really remarkable. Definitely one of those things, given all that has happened, that makes you consider how valuable things are — memories, family heirlooms, and those kinds of things. It shows you the power of social media for good. It was encouraging that immediately there were tons of replies from people, looking up ancestry records and saying, 'I know someone, who knows someone, and I'd like to help.'"

The National Enquirer claims Ben Affleck is spoiling Jennifer Lopez. A source tells the magazine, “She hasn’t forgotten or completely forgiven him, so this is her way of reminding him there is a cost to his behavior! He’s like her personal bank account. He pays for their private jet flights, their vacation, hotels, lavish gifts from clothing to jewelry, and fine dining whenever they go out! The limos are all on his tab, too, and he’s always buying her things. It’s pretty ironic since he’s not worth nearly what she is, but he knows he’s paying off an emotional, as well as financial debt. But he’s shown he’s more than willing to pay the price!”
The Globe claims Will Smith will never leave Jada Pinkett Smith because he has too much to lose.

It’s common knowledge she knows all the secrets about him and he’s an extremely shy, private man who would be loath for anything to come out about him having to do with scandals, partying, and feuds. They would have these long, drawn-out conversations that would last for hours, and he opened up to her like he’s never done with anyone before. And she’s stored everything away, every little dirty thing in his past. Will was reckless and did some things that could prove highly embarrassing if they ever got out now. Jada keeps a firm grip on all the accounts and he knows she’d take him to the cleaners if he tried to divorce her. Now he’s feeling trapped and too scared to divorce her.”

Through social media and online stories, Kim is aware of the plot but as far as sitting down and watching it, she has decided to stay away. Kim is not even curious about the show. She lived it for so many years and has already said 'goodbye' to Samantha Jones. She met with producers about being part of the project and passed. Kim is looking towards the future, not the past. The show was a job for Kim. For others, it has become their identity. Sarah Jessica [Parker] is going to be Carrie Bradshaw until the day she dies. There is far more to Kim Cattrall than being Samantha Jones.''

My boyfriend and I are fighting because his ex-girlfriend sent him a Christmas gift. She gave him a shirt with a card that read: "Here's a tight tee for you". The two are still friends because she is a pharmaceutical sales rep and sometimes comes into his job. I told him to return the gift. He is refusing and says I'm making a big deal out of nothing. I don't think he should have accepted the gift or the flirtatious card. What do you think?
