*A private dinner with Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCapriowas the big auction item at his Foundation gala. It sold for around 15-grand!

*Simone Biles just released a video that ought to go viral.
Her family recorded Simone coming out of wisdom teeth surgery. The anesthesia drugs made her goofy. She tweeted the hilarious moment.
With her mouth stuffed with gauze, she hallucinated driving a big rig truck. Simone motioned with her hands as she turned the steering wheel. Then attempted to make a honking sound as she pressed down on the make-believe horn.
Off-camera, you can hear her family members laugh so hard they probably peed their pants.

Garth Brooks Delivers On Wedding Gift Promise To Fans-
In late June, a week before their wedding, Jude and Jamie Blanchard went to see Garth Brooks on his opening night at the Cajundome in Louisiana. Bride-to-be Jamie held up a sign saying “Best week ever. Garth this Friday, our wedding next Friday.”
Naturally, when the G-man saw the sign near the front row, he responded by singing “To Make You Feel My Love” to them. He also asked what was on their registry because “me and Mrs. Yearwood, we’ll get it for you.”, so she gave him a wedding invitation.
And he and Trisha Yearwood delivered big time. The Blancards received a few boxes filled with things like two lounge chairs, a KitchenAid mixer, a Rowenta iron, a meat-grinder, a string of industrial patio lights and several other items.
Jamie was shocked. "It's a crazy amount of stuff," she said. "I don't know what I thought he was going to send us, but this is just beyond what we were expecting. ... I'm really humbled."
She added that he had already given them the best gift ever…singing to the couple.

Rescue Group Blames “GoT” For Uptick In Dog Surrenders-
Huskies are being dumped at shelters more and more and an organization says one show is to blame.
The Bay Area Siberian Husky Club is blaming HBO's "Game of Thrones" for an increase in the surrenders. They have seen a jump of 300 percent in Huskies since "Game of Thrones" started. Many people end up surrendering the Huskies because they're not only big pets, they're also high-energy and need a lot of attention.
They recommend you attend a meet up to find a better pet match for your lifestyle and surroundings.
According To Google, Tom Brady Owns…The Jets-
Either Google has a sense of humor or something is amiss.
Before the story broke and Google “fixed it,” if you happened to type in “owner of the Jets” the answer would be not Woody Johnson, but Tom Brady.
Granted Brady has a 23-7 record against the team and “owns” them on the field, but he is not Johnson. “Fox News” asked a Google spokesperson about it but they had no comment.
It makes you wonder what other nuggets Google has to offer?
