The Best and Worst Halloween Candy for Kids

The typical jack-o'-lantern bucket holds 250 small chocolate bars (about 9,000 calories), and 20 percent of kids eat every last piece they collect. If you don't want to be the neighborhood Scrooge who's giving out apples and dental floss—or worse, pulling toilet paper from your trees the next day—try these tricks to treat their sweet tooths without expanding their waistlines.

HOW GOOD IS YOUR MEMORY?

(Sun) If you feel like your memory is slipping away, you're not alone. Most people have trouble remembering as they get older. Take this quiz to reveal the technique best suited for boosting your memory. You'll find out the secret to your learning style in the analysis.

The trait you admire most about your mate is:

  1. Physical attractiveness.
  2. Sense of humor.
  3. Loving support.

When learning a new game, you:

  1. Skim the rules before beginning.
  2. Ask other players to explain the rules.
  3. Figure things out as you play.

If you got lost, you'd:

  1. Take a look at a map.
  2. Turn back and retrace the last 10 minutes.
  3. Stop at a gas station and ask someone for directions.

Your favorite way of reaching out to a friend is to:

  1. Write an e-mail.
  2. Have a long phone conversation.
  3. Drop by for a visit.

Analysis:

Mostly "a" - You need to see something in order to commit it to memory. Try imagining maps, diagrams or vivid images to lock in the information and you'll have instant recall when you need it.

Mostly "b" - The best way for you to retain information is by listening. You're keenly attuned to the tone, pitch and speed of what you hear. Make it stick by repeating aloud what you want to remember.

Mostly "c" - You learn by doing. The hands-on approach allows you to create a memory through physical movement. Try tapping your toe or gesturing with your hands to recall the information you seek.

Check out this list of annoying habits from AskMen.com:

  1. Men leave a wake of empty containers
  2. They splash the mirror when they brush their teeth
  3. Leave hair in the sink after shaving
  4. Use 10 drinking glasses a day instead of one
  5. Pee on the toilet seat
  6. Litter the ground with laundry
  7. Don't do house work
  8. Burp and fart indiscriminately
  9. Develop a martyr complex when sick
  10. Channel surf rapidly (and seemingly aimlessly)

DARE TO WEAR

Just because the night of fright is full of unspeakable terrors, it doesn't mean that your Halloween costume has to be one of them. Luckily for you, AskMen.com has a little do-not-do guide, or costumes guys should never dare to wear:

  • Ghost -- How many times have you been at a party where you've seen a handful of single guys wearing their soiled bedsheets? This pathetically unimaginative Halloween costume lets women know three things about you: you're uncreative; you leave things to the last minute; and if she returns home with you, she'll be sleeping on a sheet with a pair of cut-out eye holes. Ghost costumes, like ghosts themselves, should simply disappear, as it's definitely a Halloween costume guys should never wear.
  • The opposite sex -- Sure, it might seem like a good idea to throw on a wig and slap on an oversized pair of falsies for your big, creative Halloween costume. But before you know it, you'll be slipping out of work early to go shopping for shoes and accessories. Just as marijuana is a gateway to harder drugs, dressing up like a woman for Halloween is a gateway to becoming a full-time cross-dresser. Besides, no self-respecting woman would ever make out with someone who looks (and possibly smells) like her great aunt Edith. Halloween is the perfect excuse to play up your sex appeal, so stick with flattering Halloween costumes that present you in the best light possible.
  • Scarecrow -- In addition to being uncomfortable and sadly outdated, the scarecrow is also a grade-A fire hazard that has the potential to go up in flames faster than a rear-ended Pinto. If you only had a brain you'd know that this inherently flawed getup is a Halloween costume guys should never wear. Dorothy said goodbye to the scarecrow, and so should you.
  • Anything with leotards -- Unless you're an Olympic gymnast or a professional wrestler, you have no excuse whatsoever for leaving the house in a pair of leotards. That means giving the court jester the gong and leaving Robin Hood in Sherwood Forest right where he belongs. Some other leotard-laden Halloween costumes guys should never wear include Superman, Henry VIII and anything else that looks like it could be used during a male figure skating competition. Unless you want to be perceived in the same pink light as Robin of Batman, you'll avoid leotards at Halloween
  • A mascot -- Although the thought of dressing up like the Easter Bunny or Frosty the Snowman at Halloween may at first seem amusing, keep in mind that these poorly constructed mascot costumes are generally cumbersome and difficult to communicate through. They're also inadequately ventilated, which means that you're going to be hotter than a snake's ass in a wagon rut within minutes of fastening your head into place. If you thought your cologne could be off-putting, just wait until women catch a whiff of the three gallons of sweat that has collected in your crappy Halloween costume.
  • Captain Jack Sparrow -- There's nothing worse than arriving at the tail end of a popular trend, which is precisely what will happen if you dress up in this jaunty pirate's outfit, and it's precisely why it makes our list of Halloween costumes guys should never wear. Although Captain Jack was something of a novelty when Pirates of the Caribbean first hit theaters in 2003, it's now more played out than a Village People record at a gay disco. If you're looking to emulate a more contemporary cinematic icon this Halloween, we recommend one of the Spartan warriors from 300, McLovin from Superbad or the unforgettable breached baby head from Knocked Up. Come on, everyone loves babies!
  • Charles Manson -- If you thought it was difficult to attract women when you were dressed in a floral blouse, try doing it with a swastika temporarily tattooed on your forehead. You'll quickly discover that most Halloween partygoers aren't interested in mingling with someone whose idea of a good time involves mass murder and consensual homicide. Manson is an especially creepy Halloween costume choice because he's still alive and kicking at California's Corcoran State Prison, where he is known as inmate #B33920. If you still insist on dressing like a serial killer, stick with fictional characters like Norman Bates, Freddy Krueger or Michael Myers instead. After all, everyone likes to be scared, but not by someone who is eligible for parole in 2012, which makes this one a Halloween costume guys should never wear.

FRANKENSTEIN FRIDAY

The classic horror flick "Frankenstein," starring Boris Karloff as the monster, is celebrating its 77nd anniversary this year. Grab a bunch of "Frankenstein" videos and give them away, or set up a costume contest for Frankie look-alikes or brides of Frankenstein. Here's some trivia about the movie from the Internet Movie Database:

  • Not long before filming began, Colin Clive (Dr. Frankenstein) broke a leg in a horse riding accident. Consequently, most of Dr. Frankenstein's scenes were shot with him sitting.
  • When filming the scene where the monster emerges from the burnt windmill, Karloff, Boris slipped and fell into the water-filled well. Upon being helped out, he realized he had broken a leg in the fall. The metal struts used to stiffen his legs (for the famous "monster lurch") helped keep the bones in place until they could be properly set.
  • The musical soundtrack for this film proved so popular, it was used again in the "Flash Gordon" serials starring Crabbe, Buster.
  • When Frankenstein's castle is self-destructing, the Doctor can be seen against the far wall. Yet he is next seen outside in the arms of his beloved, watching the explosions.
  • There were two endings originally: the first had Doctor Frankenstein dying within the castle and this was filmed. But the producers judged this a bit harsh and wanted a happy ending, so they shot the extra footage (too expensive to re-film the explosions).
  • The movie was shot in 46 days at a cost of appoximately $400,000. Boris Karloff sweated off 20 pounds laboring in the hot costume and makeup.
  • The "body count" in the original cut was 21. This was trimmed to 10 after pressure from the censors.
  • Director Whale, James originally did not want to do a sequel to "Frankenstein."
  • Bela Lugosi (known for his Dracula roles) was offered the role of the Monster, but refused on the grounds that his character would not speak (though he eventually played the role in "Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man" (1943)). Lugosi also insisted on creating his own makeup for the Monster, but his design was rejected.
  • John Carradine turned down the part of the Monster because he considered himself too highly trained to be reduced to playing monsters.

HALLOWEEN SAFETY TIPS

Trick-or-Treaters:

  • Carry a flashlight
  • Walk, don't run
  • Stay on sidewalks
  • Obey traffic signals
  • Stay in familiar neighborhoods
  • Don't cut across yards or driveways
  • Wear a watch you can read in the dark
  • Make sure costumes don't drag on the ground
  • Shoes should fit (even if they don't go with your costume)
  • Avoid wearing masks while walking from house to house
  • Carry only flexible knives, swords or other props
  • (If no sidewalk) walk on the left side of the road facing traffic
  • Wear clothing with reflective markings or tape
  • Approach only houses that are lit
  • Stay away from and don't pet animals you don't know

Parents:

  • Make your child eat dinner before setting out
  • Children should carry quarters so they can call home
  • Ideally, young children of any age should be accompanied by an adult
  • If your children go on their own, be sure they wear a watch, preferably one that can be read in the dark
  • If you buy a costume, look for one made of flame-retardant material
  • Older children should know where to reach you and when to be home
  • You should know where they're going
  • Although tampering is rare, tell children to bring the candy home to be inspected before consuming anything
  • Look at the wrapping carefully and toss out anything that looks suspect

Homeowners:

  • Make sure your yard is clear of such things as ladders, hoses, dog leashes and flower pots that can trip the young ones
  • Pets get frightened on Halloween. Put them up to protect them from cars or inadvertently bitting a trick-or-treater
  • Battery powered jack o'lantern candles are preferable to a real flame
  • If you do use candles, place the pumpkin well away from where trick-or-treaters will be walking or standing
  • Make sure paper or cloth yard decorations won't be blown into a flaming candle
  • Healthy food alternatives for trick-or-treaters include packages of low-fat crackers with cheese or peanut butter filling, single-serve boxes of cereal, packaged fruit rolls, mini boxes of raisins and single-serve packets of low-fat popcorn that can be microwaved later
  • Non-food treats: plastic rings, pencils, stickers, erasers, coins

YOU SAY HELLO

How you say goodbye reveals your true personality. You can tell a lot about a person based on how they end a conversation, says psychiatrist Dr. Raymond Chaitin. For example:

  • Abrupt Departer -- They say, "So long," and they're gone. They're not anti-social, but people whose minds are always occupied. Like the absent-minded professor, they tend to live in their heads.
  • Advice Giver -- This man or woman ends conversations by reminding you to "Drive carefully," "Get some rest" or "Take care of yourself." This person is kindhearted and enjoys taking care of others.
  • Hanger-On -- They say things like, "I must be going," but can't break away, they love company, and are joiners and extroverts.
  • Date Maker -- They tend to make a definite appointment for a future meeting. You can be confident of knowing where you stand with such a person.
  • Clock Watcher -- They end a conversation by saying, "I'm running late." They are sensitive to people's feelings. Rather than hurt someone or give the impression they'd rather be elsewhere, they blame a lack of time.
  • Well Wisher -- They end a conversation by sending regards. They are truly interested in others and are never happier than when asked for advice.
  • Stroker -- They end conversations with a stroke, a pat, a hug or a handshake. They believe actions speak louder than words. They are dynamic, decisive and have little patience with details.
  • Complimenter -- They end conversations by saying that being with you has been the highlight of their day. They are born politicians and have a knack for maintaining social harmony.

A 'SWEET THING' FOR KEITH URBAN

  • Keith releases the DVD of his Love, Pain and the Whole Crazy World Tour November 11th. It will be available exclusively at Wal-Mart.

TIMES YOU SHOULDN'T TEXT A GUY

(Cosmopolitan) Casual electronic notes have become a huge part of dating, and experts speculate that texts have surpassed actual phone calls between many couples. But beware: There's such a thing as too much texting. "Overdoing it can freak guys out," says relationship expert Arlene Krieger, Ph.D. "They feel pressured into sending an instantaneous response." Here are times when texting can torpedo a relationship before it's barely gotten off the ground:

  • After your first few dates -- It may be tempting to contact a guy after an amazing date, but resist the urge. "Reaching out lessens the thrill of the chase for him," says psychologist Diana Kirschner, Ph.D., author of the upcoming book Love in 90 Days.
  • When you're drunk -- Since phones don't come with Breathalyzers, it's up to you to sop yourself from sending a tipsy message especially one that suggest you two meet up ASAP. "Being too available lets a guy know he has all the leverage," Krieger says.
  • When you're angry -- It's annoying when a guy flakes, but sending a "Why haven't you called me?" inquiry makes you look massively insecure. Avoid angry texts once you're in a relationship too. "When it's in writing, you can't easily take it back," Kirschner says.
  • When you're trying to be funny -- "When relayed nonverbally, sarcasm and joking can come off as aggressive," according to Kirschner. A dude could read message like "OMG, you were out of control last night" literally, which makes you sound pissed when you were actually just fondly remembering his funny behavior.
  • When you've already text him that day -- Once you're in an ongoing relationship, you may be tempted to rely on texting as a regular form of communication discourages phone conversations and one on one time. Also, guys like brief updates, not a blow by blow of your life.

If you're overweight, chances are you eat mindlessly.

Not only do you serve yourself differently than people of normal weight, but also you eat differently, say researchers at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York. The study found that when it comes to buffets, obese people sit closer to the food -- and even try to face it -- as well as chew less so they can eat more food faster. Want more?

  • 42% of obese people positioned themselves so they were facing the buffet, compared with 27% of normal-weight people.
  • The obese participants sat an average of 16 feet closer to the food.
  • 38% of normal-weight diners sat at a booth, compared to 16% of obese people.
  • 71% of the normal-weight people browsed at the buffet before choosing food, only 33% of the obese people did this.

Forrest Gump was right -- life is like a box of chocolates. The king of bonbon that pleases your sweet tooth provides a telling insight into the flavor of your personality. "An extensive survey proved the theory that chocolate is one of those foods that taps a wellspring of childhood memories," says psychologist Dorothy Maples, of Detroit, MI. "Kids don't bother with facades. What you see is what you get. And that same core truth about your personality is revealed by your choice of chocolate."

  • Chocolate-Covered Nuts -- You're the mainstay of your family, always there to support your loved ones. And they know that you can be depended on to solve most any problem.
  • Caramel Center -- You're the Peter Pan in your circle of loved ones -- beneath your adult shell beats the heart of a youngster. Your genuine enjoyment of everything life has to offer is contagious.
  • Creme-Filled -- You take pride in an old-fashioned lifestyle that's a mirror of your parents values. Both pals and relatives gravitate to your home -- the warmth and laughter found there are irresistible.
  • Dipped Fruit -- Some may see you as kooky, but you know the truth is that you're a genuine original. You swim against the tide of trendy thought, and others appreciate your creative views.
  • Truffles -- You believe you and yours deserve only the best, and you work hard to provide for your family. Your generosity of spirit isn't limited to your loved ones. You're also a champion of volunteerism in your community.

Want to feel closer to your hubby?

Get out the mop. Sharing household chores increases your chances of having a happy marriage. In a survey of over 2,000 people by the Pew Research Center, taking responsibility for housework came in third, behind faithfulness and a spicy sex life, as a key to marriage success. Divvying up duties is about more than mold-free showers, says Suzanne Bianchi, Ph.D. It's about knowing that your spouse is willing to shoulder some dirty work so you don't have to. So team up, scour the homestead, and then reward yourselves. (Women's Health)

Don't keep your hands to yourself.

Touching a woman's forearm will lower her guard. French researchers studied 120 women at a nightclub and found they were 50% more apt to accept a dance invitation if it was paired with a gentle contact. Study author Nicolas Gueguen, Ph.D., notes that touching makes men seem strong and in control sexually attractive traits. (Men's Health)

While sex is fun, many married couples agree that laughing together is even better, according to a recent Reader's Digest survey.

When husbands and wives chose from a list of options the factors that were most important for a good marriage, laughter -- specifically, time spent talking, laughing and having fun -- was deemed far more important than either the quality or frequency of sex. Want more?

  • When the 1,001 married people surveyed were asked if they would marry their spouse all over again, 71% agreed they would.
  • 62% of respondents said "I love my spouse even more than when we were first married."
  • 61% of respondents married for 21 years or more find their marriage is better than the typical American marriage.

Husbands and wives also chose the factors most important for a good marriage from a list of options:

  • Trust, 63%
  • Time spent talking, laughing, having fun, 52%
  • Compatibility, 30%
  • Quality of sex, 13%
  • Frequency of sex, 9%

Boxer Shorts were introduced way back in 1901

-- Psychiatrist Dr. Douglas LaDier says men that wear boxer shorts to bed are good at details and like order in their lives. They're warm, friendly and caring. They remember birthdays, anniversaries and other important dates. Yeah, right. What do the ladies perfer a man wear under his pants?

  1. Boxer briefs, 38%
  2. Briefs, 14%
  3. Boxers, 43%
  4. Nothing, 5%

Boxers or Briefs: Cosmopolitan tells us what a man's underwear says about him:

  • Briefs -- He likes to be babied a bit, is neat, and a down-to-earth guy who's got a direction in life.
  • Boxers -- He has a sense of humor and likes to cuddle.
  • The Boxer Brief -- He's carefree and athletic.
  • Bikini -- This guy is a hopeless flirt who usually likes to show off his body.

  • George Clooney is back together again with Krista Allen. For those of you keeping score, that would be the third time around with her.

National Sourpuss Day

Don't bother telling a grouch to cheer up, he was born that way. A study conducted by psychologist Dr. David Zald, of Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN, reveals that grumpy people's brains are wired to make them more cantankerous than others. The villain is a postage stamp-size portion of the brain about an inch or two behind the right eye called the ventromedial prefrontal cortex. The more activity in that area, the more likely a person is to be a sourpuss. "It looks like it's this part of the brain's activity that regulates people's moods," Zald explains. "It's also a part of the brain that controls sweating, stomach acidity, heart rate and other physical feelings associated with stress and bad moods."

The World's First Walking House

A group of American scientists have teamed up with some artists in Denmark to create a house that can actually walk-- on six hydraulic legs. The 10-foot high home is solar and wind powered and has a living room, kitchen, bathroom, bed, wood stove and mainframe computer which controls the legs and that can stroll at walking pace across all terrains. So why would you want a walking house? Well the designers say one big advantage is the house can simply walk away from floods and rising water levels. The prototype cost $60,000 to build, including materials and time, but the designers believe it could be constructed for a lot less. (Ananova)

We talked about your birth order and how it might be able to determine your career. (From Careerbuilder.com):

Firstborn:

  • Personality: Firstborns are ambitious, assertive, dominant and disciplined compared with their younger siblings. They're determined to succeed yet fearful of losing position and rank, and are defensive about errors and mistakes, Dattner says.
  • Compensation: A recent survey by CareerBuilder.com found that workers who were the firstborn child in their families were more likely to earn $100,000 or more annually compared with their siblings.
  • Professions: The oldest tend to pursue vocations that require higher education, like medicine, engineering or law. Ohio State University researchers found firstborn children were more likely to pursue "intellectual" jobs.

Middle:

  • Personality: Middle children are good at negotiation, peacemaking and compromise, Dattner says. They are easygoing and diplomatic and are usually closer to friends than family.
  • Compensation: More middle children identified themselves as earning $35,000 or less per year than firstborn or youngest children, according to the CareerBuilder.com survey.
  • Professions: Middles tend to have excellent negotiating and people skills -- anything that employs these skills is a great fit.

Youngest:

  • Personality: Youngest children love the limelight and are used to sitting in it. They are charming and creative, have a good sense of humor and manipulate others when they want to get their way.
  • Compensation: Last borns were the least likely to report earning six figures, according to the CareerBuilder.com survey.
  • Professions: Youngest children often gravitate toward artistic and outdoor jobs, according to the OSU survey. They're also successful in journalism, advertising, sales and athletics.

Only children:

  • Personality: Only children are similar to firstborns in that they are motivated to conform to parental expectations, Dattner says. They are also achievement-oriented and successful in school and have problems delegating work. Research shows they are more confident, articulate and imaginative than other children. They also hate criticism and tend to be perfectionists.

Twins

  • Personality: Because of their equal status in terms of their age -- and, if they're identical, their genes -- twins are usually treated the same and turn out similarly. They tend to have different personalities and interests, but are closer to each other than other siblings and tend to have less conflict with each other than other siblings.

  • General Collin Powell has endorsed Barack Obama. Translation: I want a cabinet post!
  • Fashion critic Mr. Blackwell has died at age 86. He was the guy who came out with that "Worst Dressed List" every year.
  • Oh, the things we're learning about the Guy Ritchie/Madonna marriage. Guy says his Christmas meal last year did not include chipolata sausages because she would not hear of processed meat crossing the threshold. Only rice milk in the house. Exercise, never less than two hours a day, six days a week, rules her life.
  • Probably the most bizaare thing: Every night, Madonna coats herself in $1,000 a jar cream and sleeps in a plastic suit.
  • Following X-Files star David Duchovny's release from rehab for sex addiction comes word that he had a secret mistress. London's Daily Mail reports she is Hungarian tennis coach Edit Pakay. She's 28. He's 48.
  • Mervyn's closed a bunch of stores and tried to keep going, but they're now throwing in the towel and will be liquidating their remaining stores.
  • James Bond star Daniel Craig had the shoulder he injured on the set of Quantum of Solace reconstructed. The actor appeared on Friday night's "The Tonight Show" with his right arm in a sling.
  • Don Cornelius, the one-time host of the TV show, "Soul Train," was arrested over the weekend on suspicion of domestic violence.
  • Brad and Angelina say they're already starting to plan their next adoption.
  • John McCain's daughter says if her dad wins the state of New Hampsire and becomes president, she'll have New Hampshire's slogan -- "Live Free or Die" -- tattooed somewhere on her body.
  • Danity Kane star Dawn Richard has confirmed bandmates Aubrey O'day and D. Woods are no longer members of pop group.
  • After more than three years on Broadway, the Tony-winning musical Spamalot is closing. The final performance will be Sunday, January 18, 2009.
  • Nelly Furtado says she got married last July to her sound engineer boyfriend.
  • Tori Spelling's Westwood home is up for sale. The price of the five-bed, 3.5-bathroom gated home is $2,395,000 and features a master suite with high ceilings, a living room with designer fireplace, a media room, and a gourmet kitchen with imported marble counters.
  • If you can't play, you might as well get married. Word is that Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen were checking into a wedding reception at New York's Tavern on the Green.

BRAD PAISLEY SAYS JEWEL'S ARREST PRANK WAS A SOBERING EXPERIENCE

Industry folks from Nashville's Music Row converged on the Musician's Hall of Fame yesterday (October 20th) to help Brad Paisley celebrate his back-to-back number one hits "I'm Still a Guy" and "Waitin' On a Woman." In between television interviews and the presentation of dozens of plaques going to many of the people involved in his career, Brad took the time to tell us about the prank his tour mate, Jewel, pulled on him over the weekend. She arranged for a few of Nashville's finest to meet Brad's plane at the airport -- complete with handcuffs and flashing lights. Brad said:"They read me my rights, they asked me if I knew why I was being arrested. And said, I have no idea. They handcuffed my hands behind my back. Tightly . . . I'm going to sue them for the marks that I have. The trauma to my head when they put me in the (car). If you've never . . . and there's something about it, I knew it was a joke, if you've never had that happen where they handcuff you, read you your rights, full uniform, put you in the back of a squad car with the lights going, and shut the door. That is sobering, no doubt about it. It's pretty interesting, that's the best I've been gotten in a long time."

  • But Brad wasn't truly an innocent party. Over the weekend, during the final show of his 2008 Paisley Party Tour, Brad tells us that he pranked tour mate Chuck Wicks, by having Chuck's girlfriend Julianne Hough record a bogus video, breaking up with him in front of the San Antonio crowd. And when Jewel took the stage to sing a duet with Brad, he tried his hardest to make her look bad. He thinks that might have been why the police charged him with guitar "noodling" in excess."The charge was excessive noodling, and something to do with the fact that the night before that, we sing the Merle Haggard song, "That's the Way Love Goes" in my show together, Jewel and I do. And the night before that, right when she walks out to start her line, I went up a whole step and changed keys. She finally found that key -- she thought her ears had gone out... she finally found that key and sang. And then I went up another key. Every time she would start to sing, I would just change the key on her. That will be on YouTube soon, if you'd like to see it."
  • Jewel actually struck first in the prankfest. Earlier in the month, she superimposed Brad's face on the bodies of ballerinas and bikini-clad models and had the video played while Brad sang "I'm Still a Guy".

FAITH HILL CELEBRATES HER 41ST BIRTHDAY IN A BIKINI

For the first time in her career, Faith Hill graces the cover of a magazine wearing a bikini. Faith states that her December cover shot for Shape was something of a present to herself, as a reward for doing Pilates three times a week. In the magazine, Faith reveals that in high school, she was very athletic. But career and motherhood and knee surgery had taken their toll on her exercise regime. So this summer, she and husband Tim McGraw began working out together, with Faith eventually adding Pilates classes. She was so pleased with her flat stomach and toned arms, that she didn't hesitate to don a bikini for the Shape cover photo.

SIDE NOTES

  • If you'll recall, a year ago the internet was buzzing with two very different photos from Faith's Redbook cover: one was the original unretouched photo (she looked gorgeous), and the other was the airbrushed cover (she looked even more gorgeous.) Since the airbrushing wasn't needed in the first place, we're pretty sure that Faith insisted on a more true-to-life picture this time around.

October is Adopt A Pet Month

and Family Circle rounded up the most kid friendly breeds and stored them by size and temperament. Here's what dog breeds they suggest:

  • Pug, Lhasa Apso, Cavalier King Charles spaniel - under 20 pounds, laid back and social. Patient and forgiving, playing, loving nature and they're easy to train. Ideal combination for families with young kids.
  • English Bulldog, Beagle, Basset Hound - 21-50 pounds, laid back and social. Affectionate, lovable, even tempered and charming. Perfect companions for children because of their gentle, non aggressive demeanor.
  • Saint Bernard, Old English Sheepdog, Great Dane, Mastiff - over 50 pounds, laid back and social. Gentle giants are receptive to children and other animals and will thrive in their family role. They are efficient watchdogs but still have a mild temperament.
  • Boston Terrier, Scottish Terrier, Chihuahua, Jack Russell Terrier - under 20 pounds, energetic and independent. Suitable for active families and surprisingly loyal watchdogs. Easy to clean and brush, a perk for busy people who prefer a low maintenance grooming regimen.
  • American Eskimo, Keeshound, Miniature Poodle - 21-50 pounds, energetic and independent. Bred for companionship, these dogs thrive on human contact. Easily trained and intelligent, as well as strong willed. Great for outdoorsy families who have the time to develop a strong dog-human relationship.
  • Collie, Golden Retriever, Siberian Husky - over 50 pounds, energetic and independent. Long-haired and suitable for attentive owners who are willing to devote extra care to grooming. Good natured, intelligent loyal dogs who are active and agile, ideal for families with older children

Today is National Babbling Day!

Even if no one else is in the room, go ahead and yak away. You're not crazy -- a new study shows that talking to yourself is great for your mental health. Swedish psychotherapist Per Naroskin says babbling to no one forces you to listen to yourself. As a result, you'll develop talents you never knew existed, sleep better and work more efficiently. The solo chat is even more effective, says the author of "The Benefits Of Talking Loudly To Oneself," if the tongue-wagger uses kooky accents and funny voices. Too shy to vocalize alone? Speak to your pet, a plant, your car or, like Tom Hanks in "Castaway," to a volleyball.

  • People over 50 are most likely to have an affair with nearly one-third of this age group admitting to having had sex with someone they shouldn't. This compares with 23% of those 30 to 40 years old and 14% of those under 30.
  • People who work in three specific jobs are more likely to cheat than others: human resources, trucking and travel agencies.
  • 44% of adults worldwide have had a one-night extramarital fling, and 22% have had a full-fledged affair.

Ever thrown money around when a hot woman was watching?

Men are more generous around attractive women, a new study confirms. Using a money earning age, British researchers found that men contributed more winnings to charity when they were being watched by a beautiful woman than when they were playing alone or being watched by another man. Men may be showing off to potential mates or to make up for shortcomings, says the report in Evolutionary Psychology. Women's charitable impulses didn't change do matter who was watching.

The cornerstone laid was laid for the construction of The White House way back in 1792

The site was personally chosen by George Washington. No official name was given to the structure so it was known by a variety of titles including the "President's House" and "Executive Mansion." The exterior walls were made from sandstone reflecting a grayish-brown color, but when whitewashed in 1798, it prompted some popular usage of the term "White House." Here's more White House trivia:

  • Which president installed a toilet seat in the White House bearing his college emblem, the University Of Michigan? (Gerald Ford)
  • Which president had electric lights installed in the White House? (Benjamin Harrison)
  • Who was the first president to have a phone on his desk in the White House. (Herbert Hoover)
  • A bathtub and inside toilet were provided by which president? (Millard Fillmore)
  • President Theodore Roosevelt gave this structure its official name in what year? (1901)
  • There are 132 rooms and 32 bathrooms in the White House.

THIS MONTH IS

Adopt A Pet Month -- Ask your listeners share their funniest or most memorable pet stories on the air.

Pets outnumber people in the U.S., 378 million to 288 million, according to Sky magazine. Overall, Americans own about 78 million cats, 65 million dogs, 9 million reptiles, 192 million fish and 17 million assorted small animals, says the report. If you thought that was a treat, read up on 10 fascinating facts that magazine managed to dig up about U.S. pet owners;

  1. 83% consider themselves their animals' "mom" or "dad."
  2. 78% admit using a special "pet voice" while talking to their critters.
  3. 73% have no problem maxing out their plastic to make sure their "kid" gets the best care.
  4. 67% have a guilty conscience about leaving their animals home alone.
  5. 63% of U.S. dog owners admit to smooching their pooches.
  6. 58% of pet owners report they spend more time at the vet than at their own doctors' offices.
  7. 52% reveal they're more likely to recall the names of their neighbors' pets than the names of their neighbors.
  8. 47% turn on a TV or radio to keep their pets company when leaving the animals home alone.
  9. If stuck on a desert island, 50% of Americans would choose a dog or a cat for company over a human.
  10. 69% of pet owners admit playing favorites with their critters while their significant others are away by breaking household rules, like letting the dog sleep on the bed or feeding the cat leftovers.

Birds, lizards, turtles and other household pets carry germs that can make you sick. Here is advice on how to protect yourself:

  • Birds -- Don't let your canary's tune be your swan song. Dried bird droppings are a breeding ground for bacteria that cause the sometimes-fatal disease psittacosis when inhaled.
  • Lizards -- Ninety percent of iguanas are walking petri dishes for salmonella. The intestinal bacteria causes fever, diarrhea and stomach ulcers. If you come in contact with any reptile be sure to wash your hands.
  • Fish -- An aquarium is basically a toilet bowl for fish, so it's no wonder that a bacteria that causes "fish-tank granuloma" thrives in it. Wear plastic gloves when cleaning the tank and wash your hands afterward.
  • Cats -- "Cat Scratch Fever" isn't just a Ted Nugent song. It's a disease caused by a bite from an infected cat. The bacteria can cause fever, swollen lymph nodes and pinkeye.
  • Dogs -- Man's best friend can be your worst enemy. Your pet can pick up the lung infection kennel cough during boarding and give it to you. And stepping in doggy doo can give you hookworms.

Want to live to be 100 and be happy and healthy while you're doing it?

Here are six secret keys to your very own fountain of youth, from researcher Dan Buettner, author of the National Geographic bestseller, "The Blue Zones":

  • Laugh long and often -- Not only is it fun, but a good, long giggle relaxes blood vessels and lowers your risk of heart attack.
  • Nosh on nuts -- Studies of a Seventhday Adventist group in California found that those who ate small portions of nuts five days a week lived an average of two years longer than those who didn't.
  • Cherish your friends -- Keep a tight knit circle of close buddies around you visit often and share your innermost hopes and fears. "Gather people around you who will reinforce your lifestyle," advises Buettner.
  • Eat wisely -- Okinawas, who boast an unusually high number of healthy seniors over 100, begin every meal by saying, "Hara hachi bu!" The saying translates to "Eat until you're 80 percent full!" Buettner recommends eating slowly off smaller plates to make smaller meals satisfying.
  • Stay active - You don't have to run marathons or schedule gym time. Just make physical activities long walks, puttering in the garden or playing with kids a part of your regular routine.
  • Live like you mean it -- "Across the board, those living the longest had a clear sense of purpose," Buettner explains. "You have to know why you get up every morning." Find ways to connect with things you feel passionate about and get involved.

Subtle Butt?

An American company has once again performed a great service to humanity by inventing an underwear patch that absorbs all smells. Called "Subtle Butt, the material is inserted into a pair of pants with two self-adhesive strips and traps any bad smells from gas -- or anything else for that matter. The company is Garment Guard which already sells disposable cotton underarm inserts which absorb perspiration to prevent embarrassing wet marks. The ad reads: "Simply stick it in the right place and you're ready for a chilli cook-off." Unfortunately Subtle Butt doesn't do anything to reduce any sounds created by your butt -- just smells.

Fight for you right to get up LATE!

A group is fighting for the rights of people who don't like getting up early in the morning. The group -- called the B Society -- has signed up thousands in its fight for late risers. They even have their own web site to promote the sleeping-in cause. "Why are we still rising with the first cockerel crow or when the cows need milking when less than 5% of people work in agriculture?" the group asks. "We want to free ourselves from the tyranny of the A Society, and give rights to the B Society." And people are starting to take notice. Several companies and even one school now offer midday starts for employees and students who have a hard time getting up in the morning.

Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari flirted with Sarah Palin

Late last month, Republican VP nominee Gov. Sarah Palin met with leaders at the UN where new Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari flirted with her... to the point that a fatwa has been issued against him. First, he told Palin she was "gorgeous." Then he said, "Now I know why the whole of America is crazy about you." But what really irritated the radical religious leaders was Zardari's comment that he might hug Palin if his handler insisted. The Christian Science Monitor says this behavior is abhorrent to Muslims when a man and a woman who are not married engage in flattery and physical contact.

Happy People Live Longer!

Here's something that's sure to make optimists feel even rosier, happy people live longer. That's the conclusion of a review encompassing more than 30 studies about how attitude can affect health. In general, says study author Ruut Veenhoven, a professor at Holland's Erasmus University, happiness affect longevity to the same degree not smoking might, adding 7 and a half to 10 years to a person's lifespan. "Happiness does not heal, but it protect against falling ill," concludes Veenhoven. Happy people defined as those who appreciate their life as a whole were more likely to watch their weight, smoke and drink less and be more active, self confident and social than their unhappy counterparts.
