Monthly Planning Calendar in Today’s BS!

BS SHOW BIZ BUZZ:
★ Filmmaker Sam Mendes has confirmed he won’t direct the next ‘James Bond’ film, saying it is time to move on. Mendes helmed the franchise’s 2 most recent films, “Skyfall (2012) and “Spectre” (2015). Quote: “I think it’s time for somebody else. I’m a storyteller and at the end of the day, I want to make stories with new characters.” While Mendes won’t be back, speculation still remains as to whether actor Daniel Craig will once again step back into the role of ’007′.

★ Matthew McConaughey’s partner Camila Alves is launching an organic baby food line. The 34-year-old – who is mom to Matthew’s children Levi, Vida, and Livingston – has always made sure her kids have eaten healthily, but admits it’s time consuming to make fresh food for infants. The struggle inspired her to create an affordable line of organic baby food for busy parents looking to feed their children well. She’s partnering with chef-entrepreneur Agatha Achindu to co-found ‘Yummy Spoonfuls’, healthy foods for children from 4 months to toddler.

★ And the property that served as the exterior of the ‘Tanner’ residence on “Full House” is for sale. The 3-bedroom Victorian in the lower Pacific Heights neighborhood of San Francisco CA is on the market for $4.15 million. The house was featured in the 1987-95 sitcom that starred Olsen twins Mary-Kate & Ashley alongside John Stamos. Fans who can’t afford to splash the cash on the iconic home can take solace in the upcoming 2nd season of the Netflix revival series, “Fuller House”.

• Blake Shelton – “Radar Online” is reporting that he’s proposed to Gwen Stefani by stashing a $1.2-million engagement ring … in a box of KFC. Gwen is said to be very touched, but has indicated she wants to wait to make sure that it is right for her kids. That’s a ‘no’ then.

• The Killers – Bassist Mark Stoermer is stepping back from touring with the group to pursue ‘educational goals’ and releasing a solo album. The Killers have a number of festival appearances scheduled for this Summer.

IS A HOT DOG A SANDWICH?
Dictionary publisher Merriam-Webster has ruled once and for all that a hot dog is, in fact, a sandwich. The official definition of a sandwich is “two or more slices of bread or a split roll having a filling in between”. So there is no sensible way around the fact that a hot dog absolutely fulfills the requirements. Dissenters, however, interpret the term ‘filling’ narrowly, as meaning only a food mixture used to fill pastry or sandwiches rather than broadly as whatever happens to be used to fill the cavity. But then, how do you explain a ‘meatball sandwich’?, the dictionary honchos ask. (If you fold a pizza slice in half, is it a sandwich?)

REASONS THINKING LIKE A CHILD WILL MAKE YOU HAPPIER:
✓ They let their minds wander.
✓ They say what they mean.
✓ They aren’t afraid to cry.
✓ They don’t care what other people think.
✓ They don’t hold grudges.
✓ They exude blind optimism.
✓ They’re decisive.
✓ They seek out new experiences.

AIRBNB FOR SENIORS:
The Freebird Club shares plenty of similarities with popular online rental site Airbnb. For a fixed, nightly fee, travelers rent rooms from residential hosts in various destinations. But unlike most sharing startups, this service has no interest in catering to Millennials; it’s designed exclusively for clients aged 50-plus. Like Airbnb, users have to sign up with the site in order to rent a room/condo/house. The mission of the new company is to foster a sense of community among seniors and middle-aged citizens; to make older adults feel more secure about the rental process; and to encourage mature adults to continue to explore the world. The service is debuting in Ireland and UK next month with the goal of expanding around-the-globe. (What’s the best amenity you’ve ever found in an online rental? Airport pickup? Groceries included? Stocked bar?)

DID YOU KNOW?
Increasingly, it sounds as if Aiden Turner (OWN-TV’s “If Loving You Is Wrong”) and not Tom Hiddleston (“The Night Manager”) is the insiders’ tip to be the next ‘James Bond’.
