What did you name your car?!


2) Levi's and Google Create Smart Trucker Jacket

Mashable claims Google and Levi's have teamed up to create a new smart jacket. The 2019 Levi's Trucker Jacket has a bluetooth chip that allows the left cuff to operate as a touchpad. The pad allows you to play music, take selfies and answer phone calls. The jacket ranges in price from $198 to $350.


3) Keith Urban Lives A Normal Life ... Keith and Nicole Kidman live a normal life and do things everyone else does.

At least this is according to them. We find it hard to believe though.


4) Gone viral.

A catering truck on the tarmac at O'Hare Airport started spinning in circles on Monday, and a passenger in a nearby plane got it on video.  There was no driver and the accelerator was stuck.  Employees couldn't get close enough to jump on and stop it. Finally, a worker driving another vehicle rammed into it and that was the end of that.  None of the workers were injured.

5) So what are they putting on the corn at NC State Fair?

WRAL TV claims vendors at this year's North Carolina State Fair are serving Pumpkin Spice Corn. The corn is dipped in butter before being rolled in brown sugar and pumpkin pie spice. Another vendor is selling a Pumpkin Spice Hush Puppy that is topped with a pumpkin spice glaze.
