When it comes to baby names, Alaskans are like celebrities in that they tend to go the offbeat route.

Three Welsh tourists in Australia had themselves quite a night last Saturday, which ended with a scenario fans of the movie ‘The Hangover’ will certainly recognize . After consuming a few too many adult beverages, the trio broke into the local Sea World and swam with the dolphins. The revelers claim things get hazy after that. So when they woke the next morning and a seven-year old fairy penguin named Dirk was in their room they say they had no idea how he got there.
Nature videos are usually narrated by a stuffy sounding English fellow. In fact, whenever we hear a British accent, we half expect a lion to attack a gazelle, which makes watching Hugh Grant movies weird.
But what if instead your favorite nature videos were narrated by little kids from good ole’ U.S of A? ‘Planet Earth’ recently gave some of their younger fans a chance to get in the sound studio and do a little voice-over work. Check out what happened.
10-year-old Dylan Viale has a very close relationship with his grandmother Sherry, who is blind. The two walk dogs and go to the movies together, and recently went to a Lego event where they helped build a giant Lego Yoda.

Even stacked together in a jar, all those pennies you have are fairly worthless. However, they may soon become collectors’ items.
Canada, our neighbor to the North, has just eliminated the penny in their latest federal budget, following the example of nations like Australia and New Zealand.
