Last week, CBS, in a partnership with the Grammys, announced it will air a two-hour special in February featuring some of our favorite musicians performing the songs that the Beatles sang on their first appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show. For many of us, it is our parents who will remember their personal moment when "the Beatles invasion" happened in their life. It's hard to pin down the exact instant when the whole world took notice, but about fifty years ago, music changed. The performance of the Beatles on The Ed Sullivan Show on February 9, 1964 is how CBS and the Grammys are measuring the Beatle's impact on music. In so many ways the Beatles have been a part of our lives. It's the little things, but we all do them: sing their songs to our children, quote their lyrics when we need that perfect phrase, celebrate when we recognize a Fab Four reference within pop culture... Here are 7 ways The Beatles are influencing us all around the world. -By Dresden Shumaker

The other night, I was at a dinner with a close group of friends. One of our friends was unable to join us, so I decided to send her a message to let her know she was missed. I looked down at our table where a basket of delicious and perfect looking hush puppies sat catching the light of the private dining room's chandelier. I pulled out my cell phone and snapped a series of photographs until I finally felt certain I had captured The One. I sent the image to her along with a message: a little missive from our evening to hers.
You know who else puts food images from her night out into the world? Martha Stewart.
Yesterday, Jezebel gave Martha the side eye for the food images she has been sharing over social media. There really is no way to sugarcoat it; they are not at all like the images that grace her magazine or website. For example, take a look at the image she shared on twitter of slow-cooked French onion soup vs. the image of a similar soup found on her website.Read More »from Why Martha Stewart's "Gross" Food Photos on Twitter Are Refreshing to See

November 18th marks a very special day - it is the day that is considered to be the birthday of the one and only Mickey Mouse! The most iconic, famous, and beloved cartoon character of all time turns 85 this year, although he really doesn't look a day older than when he debuted a lifetime ago. The day, November 18th, isn't the day when Walt Disney first put pen to paper to invent Mickey, but rather the day when Steamboat Willie debuted and changed not just the course of Walt Disney's life, but entertainment as we know it. As Walt Disney said, "I only hope that we don't lose sight of one thing - that it was all started by a mouse." In celebration, click through for 7 surprising things you may not know about Mickey Mouse! -By Sunny ChanelRead More »from Happy 85th Birthday, Mickey! 7 Things You Didn't Know About Disney's Favorite Mouse

Sometimes, people are the worst. Okay, not all the people, but definitely that guy who's always lurking, trying to ask an inane question while you're in the middle of a crisis. Or, the girl who's perpetually trying to show you up - even when you're NOT competing with her.

Dayna MoralesDayna Morales, a server at a New Jersey restaurant, said a family of four dining at the restaurant this week skipped the tip on their $93.55 bill, with this explanation: "I'm sorry but I cannot tip because I do not agree with your lifestyle and how you live your life."
Ms. Morales told ABC News that when she introduced herself with the standard "My name is Dayna. I'll be taking care of you," the mom of the family replied with "I thought you were going to say your name was Dan."
Ugggghhhhh. There was a similar news story last month of a 20-year-old waiter not being tipped because his "lifestyle" was "an affront to God." Instead of a tip, that server was left this note: "Thank you for your service, it was excellent. That being said, we cannot in good conscience tip you, for your homosexual lifestyle is an affront to GOD. Queers do not share in the wealth of GOD, and you will not share in ours. We hope you will see the tip your queer choices made you lose out on, and planRead More »from Gay Waitress Not Tipped Because She is "An Affront to God"
