It was music`s biggest night of the year and the Grammys did not fail to amaze. This rockin night took place in sunny California in the iconic Staples Center. All the stars were out for a night of glamour, outstanding musical performances and of course, the awards! Top musical stars from Taylor Swift, Kanye West, Nick Jonas, Stevie Wonder, Rhianna and Sir Paul McCartney were in attendance.

The classics are evolving and the Girl Scouts are making room for new cookies! It’s almost cookie season and this year is extra special. Girl Scouts is releasing two new cookies. These new cookies are called Rah-Rah raisin and Toffee-tastic.
The Girl Scout cookie tradition began in 1917 in Muskogee, Oklahoma. This beloved tradition began when a troop had a bake sale that sold sugar cookies for a service project in their high school. As this tradition evolved, new cookies were added. Currently the cookie flavors include, Thin Mints, Samoas, Tagalongs, Trefoils, Do-si-dos, Cranberry Citrus Crisps, Savannah Smiles, Thanks-A-Lots, Lemonades, Trios and now introducing the Rah-Rah raisin and Toffee-tastic.

With the New Year approaching, you might be planning on celebrating with friends and family. Whether you are celebrating at a house party with friends and family, or out at a city-sponsored event, taking some precautions will ensure that everyone enjoys their celebrations safely.
Traveling: If you are traveling, don’t drink and drive. If you have a friend who does not drink, ask them to be the designated driver. When you are driving be alert and aware of your surroundings.
Celebrating with Alcohol: If you are going to be celebrating with alcohol it is important to have a full stomach before drinking. Alternate drinks to stay hydrated, such as drinking juice, water or soda in between consuming alcoholic beverages.
Being in a crowd of people: If you are going to be in a crowd of people it is important to distant yourself from people who are being out of control or are intoxicated.
If you are hosting a party: If you are hosting a party call a cab company and book rides for your guests in advance. Knowing that all your guests got home safely leaves less stress and responsibility on you.
If you have pets: If you have pets it is important to show them extra attention. Loud noises can scare pets and make them panic and run. Keep pets in a comfortable room with soft music playing too drowned out any unusual noises.
