Ugh.....turned on ESPN for coverage of the U S Open start, and the damn talking heads have been

yapping for a hour. 🤬 🤬 🤬 I know it’s huge this year with Serena announcing this is her last tennis hurrah, but damn it’s been an hour. I want to see tennis.

Anyone see the College football game Nebraska VS Northwestern played in Dublin Ireland???

Fun game, Northwestern won, and lotsa footage of the Irish ☘️ countryside. Just a fun game in my Country of wanting to live. Been there twice, AND WANT TO MOVE THERE.

Will our car insurance premium go down because we now only have one driver??

My husband won’t be driving anymore due to mental problems, and I will be the only driver…….will this make a difference in our premium?? Thanks.

This makes me so sad.........Brad tried to do the right and noble thing......

Hollywood star Brad Pitt and his Make It Right Foundation have reached a $20.5 million settlement with 107 New Orleans residents after the houses they built for them in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina were found to be poorly constructed and rotting.

Pending a judge's approval, residents will be entitled to a $25,000 reimbursement for repairs to their homes, while the remainder of the funds will be split between them based on the state of their houses.

Pitt worked with ecological non-profit Global Green to come up with the funds, and admitted he was 'grateful' they were able to reach the settlement.

'I am incredibly grateful for Global Green’s willingness to step up and provide this important support for the Lower Ninth families,' he said.

'We collaborated in the early days post-Katrina and we are very fortunate to have Global Green's generous continuing commitment to help address the challenges around these homes and others in need,' he continued.

Pitt formed Make It Right to help hard-hit residents of New Orleans' Lower Ninth Ward in 2007, aiming to replace lost housing in the Ward with 150 avant-garde dwellings that were storm-safe and energy-efficient.
