If you really think about it, Mother's Day is the perfect opportunity to make up for all those times you gave mom a hard time during your youth. After all, a bouquet of daffodils now definitely excuses that time you snuck out of the house at 2 am. And a box of gourmet truffles? The perfect antidote to the antique china you broke while running around like a wild banshee.
But while flowers and chocolate are dandy, they don't last long. Treat Mom to one of these five Mother's Day gifts she'll both use and love for years to come:
The Easter practice of egg decorating has meaning behind it: the egg itself represents rebirth, something early Pagans celebrated during the spring season, and was later adopted by Christians to represent the resurrection themes of the Easter holiday. Back in the olden days, colored eggs were decorated in springy hues and given away to lovers and friends sort of the same way we do with Valentines. The egg tradition has held over as the holiday evolved, with most people using store-bought dyeing packages to color their hard boileds.
This year, stray from the usual and create unique Easter egg decorations with the help of these video tutorials.
Imagine losing the ability to walk. Imagine losing said ability for over 20 years.
Now, imagine the kind of elation you'd feel if an invention came along that made it possible for you to walk again.
That's exactly how the man in this video felt after using the ReWalk ExoSkeleton robot. Designed by Argo Medical Technologies Ltd., the robot is a lightweight brace device that attaches to your legs and restores a person's mobility functions.
Last week, the average cost of gasoline in the United States was $3.84. In places like Los Angeles, the price has jumped to $4.23 a gallon. These increases are correlated to conflicts in Middle Eastern oil-producing nations.
Residents in Seattle now have access to one of the best pick-me-ups ever.
A baby ocelot named Evita finally made an appearance Monday morning at the Seattle Woodland Park Zoo. The 3-month-old spotted feline was born in early 2011 and has since been bonding with its mom behind closed doors.
Two new movies are opening nationwide this this weekend. One is a film adaptation of the bestselling novel 'Water for Elephants,' starring Robert Pattinson (in a non-vampire role) and Academy Award winner Reese Witherspoon.
The other is a sequel in a long line of sequels in the 'Madea' franchise, called 'Madea's Big Happy Family.' It's hard to say which film will do better at the box office, as one looks to be aiming for Oscar consideration while the other is an ensemble comedy with a well-known leading character.
Kenny Chesney's accomplishments as a performer are second to none — as evidenced by his current "Goin' Coastal" tour, and the dazzling live sets documented in his new concert film, Kenny Chesney: Summer in 3-D. But Chesney's no slouch when it comes to songwriting, either — in fact, we think Chesney's live show wouldn't be anything without his powerhouse new-country songwriting as its foundation.
A government-supported unemployment agency in Central Florida is in hot water today after it reportedly spent $14,200 to fund 6,000 superhero capes to hand out to unemployed area residents.
It's all part of what's being called the 'Cape- A-Bility Challenge,' a contest in which out-of-work Floridians take on "Dr. Evil Unemployment," a cartoon character that represents the current state of the economy. (The agency also spent $2,300 on foam cutouts of this job-killing super villain.)
Once they enter the contest, they will be provided with a red cape -- while supplies last, of course. The campaign, which some are calling "insensitive and wasteful," runs through June 30.
Though technically a religious holiday, Easter has become more synonymous with milk chocolate candies in the shapes of eggs and bunnies, fruity snacks in springy hues and all sorts of decadent desserts. Stock up on the goods in stores, but also think about making a few of your own delectable treats this year.
The cast of 'Dancing With the Stars' season 12 showed their American pride this week, as each couple performed routines that honored our nation's stars and stripes.
With the competition now at the halfway mark, the stakes have been raised, and each contestant must bring their A-game if they want to have any hope of moving one quickstep closer to the mirror ball trophy.
So who actually made the grade tonight?
After the jump, relive the three most memorable moments from week 5's performance night.
Because of Emancipation Day, a little known Washington D.C. holiday that this year is being celebrated on April 15, US taxpayers had until April 18 to file their taxes.
For some people that still won't be enough time to get all their papers in order. If you find yourself in that boat, you can file for an extension with the IRS.
It's important to remember that filing an extension doesn't extend the due date for any money you owe the IRS, and you will have to pay interest and possibly penalties on any money you send to the government after the April 18 deadline.
Read on for advice, from the IRS website, on who should and shouldn't file for an extension.
