It's Monday! Let's run away and join the circus!

Circus Artist Greg Kennedy has indeed run away to join the circus. Cirque du Soleil that is! Enjoy watching Greg juggle in a giant cone.

Greg Kennedy, now on tour with Cirque du Soleil's show, TOTEM, is the husband of Shana Kennedy, founder and Executive Director of the Philadelphia School of Circus Arts. Shana literally started her circus arts school in her back yard!

Shana chronicles her family's adventures traveling around with Cirque du Soleil in her blog Running Away With the Circus.

Does all this circus talk make you want to try juggling or swinging on a trapeze? Well, Philadelphia School of Circus Arts offers Introductory Workshops. Their 75-minute Intro to Circus Skills is a chance to try out trapeze, juggling, tightwire and plate-spinning; while their Intro to Aerials focuses on rope, trapeze and fabric.

It's Monday! And Betty White makes you laugh year, after year, after year , , ,

Unless you've been under a rock, you know that Betty White is hot, hot, hot right now. Betty White is 89 years old!

She's an Emmy Award winning, still funny, still working actress (Hot In Cleveland)--winning a SAG Award. She became the oldest person to guest-host Saturday Night Live, winning her a seventh Emmy last year. She's a published author with another book due out this year. And this past November, she fulfilled a lifelong dream when the USDA Forest Service and Smokey Bear made her an honorary Forest Ranger.

And I remind you--Betty White is 89 years old!

Happy Monday!

It's Monday! Let your hands do the dancing!

If you turn on your TV, you'll find Suzanne Cleary and Peter Harding dancing their hands for McDonalds. It's Monday and it"s a good day to check out these Irish Dancers dancing their hands before they started selling burgers and shakes!

Happy Monday!
