Several months ago, when he was doing a Broadway play, TOM HANKS met backstage with a young autistic fan named Sarah Moretti. And he couldn't have been more AWESOME to her. Sarah saved all the things she could find about Tom Hanks over the years. Here he is going through her binder of past memories. He was so gracious to look through it and make a big fuss. Watch Sarah in the mirror! She is delighted.
I posted this on my Facebook this morning, but thought to share it her as well.
We are all born to die. Can't change that. We can slow down or speed up the process, but this fact is true for us all. It's how we deal with every moment between those two remarkable events that makes a life. I truly believe that the only reality of any given moment is your reaction to it. You can control that. Life lived to the fullest is life lived moment by moment. Not for tomorrow. Not for yesterday. Time is a human construct. Live in the moment. Don't miss a single one of them worrying about what you can't change. Live in the moment. Thank you, Dianne Leonard Boulware, for reminding me of that.
The man who made his emotional DUI confession on YouTube is headed to jail -- for six-and-a-half years. An Ohio judge handed down Matthew Cordle's sentence this morning (Wednesday). The 22-year-old caused a fatal crash in June after driving the wrong way down a freeway. He was facing up to eight-and-a-half years and has been in prison since his guilty plea last month. Cordle made waves around the nation with his video confession, which has been viewed more than 2.3 million times.
BETTY WHITE'S prank show "Off Their Rockers" is moving to Lifetime . . . and to promote it, Betty shot an ad that spoofs MILEY CYRUS and her "Wrecking Ball" video. In the video, Betty IS fully clothed. Sadly. But, she does have a sledgehammer and a foam finger.

Already celebrated as a discoverer and interpreter of other artists’ songs, 12-time Grammy Award winner Emmylou Harris has, in the last decade, gained admiration as much for her eloquently straightforward songwriting as for her incomparably expressive singing. Born in Houston in 1950, Rodney Crowell has released twenty albums in four decades, with five consecutive number-one hits, and has also worked widely as a songwriter and a producer. His honors include a Grammy, an ASCAP lifetime achievement award, and membership in the Songwriters Hall of Fame. These two long-time friends and occasional band mates hit the road together.

ELLEN DEGENERES gave $10,000 to a New Hampshire waitress who paid a tab for two National Guard soldiers. The woman's name is Sarah Hoidahl. She's a 22-year-old single mother living with her mom. One day she was waiting on two female soldiers, and they were trying to choose inexpensive menu items, because they weren't getting paid due to the government shutdown. So Sarah decided to cover their tab, which came to $27.75. Instead of a check, she gave them a note thanking them for their service. Well, the women posted a picture of the note on Facebook, and that's how Ellen found out about it. Ellen brought Sarah on her show Friday and gave her the $27.75. Then she surprised Sarah by giving her a big-screen TV . . . and a check for another 10-GRAND.
