Good news: The mask mandate in New Hampshire has been lifted!

Good news, part deux: Kenneth Smith, homeless at the time, was sitting in a chair outside an Outback Steakhouse in Fort Worth, TX when a customer approached him and gave him a $100 gift card so he could buy dinner. While he was eating, Smith met the restaurant’s managing partner who told him she wanted to make sure he always had somewhere to go for a warm meal. Months later he asked for a job and is now bussing tables there.

Article I won’t read: David Hasselhoff’s daughter becomes first curve model on European Playboy cover.

“I know she told you,
Honey I know she told you that she loved you
Much more than I did,
But all I know is that she left you,
And you swear that you just don’t know why,
But you know, honey I’ll always,
I’ll always be around if you ever want me
Come on and cry, cry baby, cry baby, cry baby,
Oh honey, welcome back home.”

– Janice Joplin (written by Bert Berns)
