The Santa tracker countdown is up and running! Ya'll can follow jolly old St. Nick's trip around the globe at NoradSanta.org.
I'm no master criminal, but once you've successfully robbed a store you need to get the hell out of there.
Last week, 21-year-old Akensvil Paulvil and 19-year-old Licence Sineas were able to shoplift an entire cart of electronics from a Walmart in
But then they got greedy . . . and went back inside to steal some MORE. Apparently they figured that it would be that easy the second time.
But by that point Walmart security had realized what happened, and called the cops. So as the guys tried to leave with their second round of stolen electronics, the cops were waiting for them at the exit.
Both men were arrested for grand theft.
The "American Country Awards" went down last night, and even though it was their fourth year, the show still hasn't found its legs. Or host.
TRACE ADKINS just isn't cutting it, even paired up with a hot cohost like DANICA PATRICK . . . although I did appreciate both of them wearing Vegas showgirl getups.
Here's a TwitPic of BRAD PAISLEY getting up close to Danica and her outfit.
There were some great performances: RANDY HOUSER killed it with "How Country Feels", JAKE OWEN turned it out with ZZ TOP'S BILLY GIBBONS . . . and LEANN RIMES got a standing ovation for her tribute to PATSY CLINE, which was a medley of "Leavin' on Your Mind", "Walkin' After Midnight", "Crazy", and "Sweet Dreams".

A never-before released JOHNNY
It features two duets with his wife, JUNE CARTER
And this isn't a bunch of sessions slapped-together to make a buck . . . it's a completed album that his record company decided not to release. Fortunately, Johnny saved the tapes and his son John Carter Cash found them just last year.
An interesting side note is that it also featured a young MARTY STUART on guitar.
The new producers decided to "fortify" the original tapes so they brought Marty back, plus some studio musicians and June's daughter CARLENE CARTER.
No other changes were made to the record, so it's like we're getting a brand new Johnny Cash album 10 years after his death.
The news is not good for
The Canadian airline WestJet recently pulled off one amazing stunt . . . giving passengers on one flight everything they asked Santa for.
While folks were telling Santa what they want for Christmas, Santa's WestJet elves were out shopping. When the passengers reached their destination, Santa had the gifts waiting for them. WestJet Airlines . . . you just won Christmas.
You really can't do ANYTHING in schools today without getting suspended, huh?
Six-year-old Hunter Yelton is a first grader in
The teacher saw, sent him to the principal's office, and his mother was called in. And even though the girl was totally fine with Hunter kissing her hand . . . he was SUSPENDED from school.
He's also going to get a mark on his permanent record for SEXUAL HARASSMENT.
The school says what he did fits under their definition of sexual harassment . . . they ban all kissing at school. They say Hunter's also gotten in trouble before for kissing the same girl on the cheek. (ABC 13 - Colorado Springs)
Say what you want about LEANN RIMES (we’ll be the first in line to give her a hard time) but . . . the girl can SING! She got a standing ovation for her tribute to PATSY CLINE at last night’s "American Country Awards".

During the NELSON MANDELA memorial in South Africa, PRESIDENT OBAMA posed for a selfie with British Prime Minister DAVID CAMERON and Denmark's Prime Minister HELLE THORNING-SCHMIDT.
There are actually rumors that MICHELLE OBAMA was JEALOUS of the attention her husband was giving Thorning-Schmidt, and even made him switch seats so that she was in between them. Here's a great picture that makes it
20 cancer patients participated in a unique makeover experience. They were invited to a studio and had their hair and makeup completely redone. Absolutely BEAUTIFUL video . . .
PRESIDENT OBAMA’S decision to have American flags fly at half staff in honor of NELSON MANDELA has fired up some controversy.
Pickens County Sheriff,
In case ya’ll didn’t know . . . there is no specific law that requires such a thing. The president, governors and other leaders can make the decision on when to lower flags in someone's honor.
The last time a president ordered flags lowered for a foreign dignitary was when President Bush did it in 2005 for Pope John Paul II.
President Obama did not order flags to fly at half staff when former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher died earlier this year. (WLOS)
