It’s Your Daily Constitutional Sheet!

★ John Travolta has donated his personal vintage Boeing 707 airplane to a restoration group in Australia. The craft, which the society hopes to keep in the air, was originally in the Qantas fleet, delivered in 1964 and later converted to private use.
(For the sake of safety, we think that Harrison Ford should do the same!
★ Ryan Seacrest was close to signing as the host of the re-tooled ‘American Idol’, but now…not so fast.  Katy Perry is being paid a huge amount to be a judge and Seacrest seems to have a problem with it.  Reports are that Seacrest is angry that Perry is being paid $25 million to be on the ‘Idol’ reboot, when he was initially offered only $10 million to host the show.
★ Miranda Kerr and her fiancé, Snapchat founder Evan Spiegel, tied the knot in a romantic wedding at their home in Los Angeles’ Brentwood neighborhood on Saturday. The intimate ceremony had fewer than 50 guests, most of whom were high-profile stars and models.  34 year-old Karr and Spiegel, 26, announced their engagement in July 2016.
★ A judge has blocked Bruce Willis’ plan to build a private airstrip in Idaho.  Judge Robert Elgee ruled that Camas County commissioners violated state law when drafting an ordinance allowing individuals to obtain conditional-use permits to build a private airport in agricultural-zoned county lands.  Willis began construction on an 8,500-foot dirt runway last year. However, the project was halted in September after a zoning administrator discovered that the airport site was on land zoned for agricultural use.  Willis has lived in Idaho since 1988.

★ Jaden Smith took to Twitter to let the world know he had a pretty bad time while staying at the Four Seasons Hotel in Toronto. How bad was it? He said a meal there made him want to “throw up” on himself.  Jaden, whom you may remember brought his hair as his date to the Met Gala earlier this month, Tweeted that, “The Four Seasons in Toronto spiked my pancakes with cheese, I’m surprised I’m still alive.” Jaden, who is vegan, added, “after they kicked me out of my room.”
(Reporters later discovered that Jaden had actually requested to extend his stay, but all the rooms were booked).
★ Don’t hang around after the ‘Wonder Woman’ movie hoping for bonus scenes.  There are none.  Director Patty Jenkins has revealed that the final cut of the movie was remarkably close to her initial vision and the only cuts made were to ”tighten” up the narrative. Meanwhile, Jenkins recently gushed about Gal Gadot, who stars as the titular superhero. She said: ”She is just an incredibly good Wonder Woman in that she naturally exudes all of the strength of character and kindness, warmth and charm come so naturally to her.”
★ Keri Russell will be honored with the 2,613th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame today. Russell starred in the title role of the hit television series “Felicity.”  Some of her other television credits include the miniseries “Into the West,” “Running Wilde” with Will Arnett, and “The All New Mickey Mouse Club.”

(How much do you think they could get for a lock of Vin Diesel’s hair…if such a thing existed?)

OK, I can’t believe that we haven’t talked yet about THE hottest toy of 2017.  The Fidget Spinner.  It is a simple device which consists of a bearing in the center of a design, which spins.  They are usually made of plastic, and they have taken the world by storm, both in the classroom and in the office.  In fact, in spite of the fact that the kids caught on first, ‘Forbes’ called it the #1 office toy of 2017.  And they are SO addictive!  Try one.  Then you will understand.  Originally created to serve as a tool to help children with attention-deficit disorder (ADD), attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and autism concentrate, the idea is that fidget toys offer a way to channel “restless energy” and in turn improve memory and focus.  While they may help some children, some schools have now taken it upon themselves to confiscate or outright ban them.  Officials say that they can be a distraction for students.  Others say they understand many teachers’ frustrations with the fidget spinners, but can also see the possible benefits of them if instructed properly.
(How much do you want to bet the teachers are having a blast with these things in the staffroom?)
(A distraction?  That’s EXACTLY what they are!)
(And the first time I saw one I thought it was a McHappy Meal prize!)
