...the more you eat the more you...lose?!? Well, that's a twist to the saying, but apparently a gentleman claims that his diet of baked beans helped him lose 140 pounds in nine months. In fact, since June 2007, he's eaten more than half a ton of them which he figures is about 1,500 cans.

Wow, I thought I needed to be a little mobile to make a living, but apparently not. NASA is allegedly offering $5,000 a month for folks to lie in a bed! They will let you play computer games while you're reclining.

A muggy summer day at a backyard birthday party in Gilroy. Drinks, barbecue, kids in a pool full of inflated toys and rafts.  I shooed a bee away from one youngster as he sat on a diving board, chomping on a hot dog.

I didn't expect a vacation in Monterey -- yelping seals, cavorting otters, lots of good seafood -- would provide a heaping helping of health incidents.

Mold in pricey hotel room showers (OK, it's damp on the coast but ...). Waiter in top-rated restaurant accidentally dangles his tie --- first in the crab, next in the chocolate cake.
