A Black Crow Named “007″ Proves That Birds Really Are Smart

I've often used the term "bird brain" to describe someone who wasn't all that smart. After watching this video, I will have to redefine my term to mean 'really smart'. According to the Huffington Post, British researcher Dr Alex Taylor set up a rather complex set of problems for a bird to solve. The video from the BBC-Two TV show "Inside the Animal Mind", shows a crow (named 007) quickly going about problem solving and getting the tasks completed. I was amazed to say the least, check it out and tell me what you think.

Miranda Lambert Says Her New Song “Automatic” is Autobiographical

The song "Automatic" is all about Miranda Lambert and the days she calls "the good life", not that life isn't good now. Miranda says it's about slowing down and enjoying the simpler things in life. Lambert tells Radio.com "It’s about going back, and reminiscing about days like when my dad was teaching me how to drive my ’55 Chevy, that I still have but don’t drive nearly enough.” I absolutely love this song, give it a listen and tell me what you think of it.

Who Can Predict the Weather Better, Punxsutawney Phil or the Old Farmers Almanac?

Who can better predict the weather, Punxsutawney Phil or the Old Farmers Almanac? That was the topic of discussion at my house on Sunday Groundhog day. Since Phil saw his shadow and went back into his hole, that means we're in for six more weeks of cold winter weather.

My daughter (who is college educated) believes that groundhogs have some kind of internal sensor to predict the weather. I told her I thought my Old Farmers Almanac does a better job of "accurately" predicting the weather. That got me to thinking, how accurate are these two sources at predicting the weather? Here's what I found out.

I can't say I was totally surprised that only two country artists, Shania Twain and Travis Tritt made 'Rankers' "Best All-Time Super Bowl Halftime Performer" list. The list included mostly rock artists. At the top of the list is Michael Jackson, followed by Prince, Beyonce', Aerosmith and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers in the top five. Shania was 15 while Tritt's 1994 Country Halftime Show appearance came in at number 17. Check out Shania's 2003 halftime show and who else made the list.
