Monthly Planning Calendar in Today’s Issue!

BS SHOW BIZ BUZZ:
★ Late actor Paul Walker’s teen daughter Meadow has hit Porsche with a wrongful death lawsuit following his fatal crash in one of their cars in November 2013. The “Fast & Furious” star was the passenger in a 2005 Porsche Carrera GT driven by his friend Roger Rodas when it slammed into a light pole and burst into flames, killing both of them. And now, nearly 2 years afterward, 16-year-old Meadow – and her team of lawyers – are taking legal action against the automaker, claiming faulty mechanics are to blame for Walker’s death.

★ 47-year-old Brit actor Daniel Craig says he plans to continue playing movie super-spy ‘James Bond’ until the demands of the hard-hitting movies become too much for him. He first stepped into the role in 2006′s “Casino Royale”; his 4th outing as ’007′ in Sam Mendes’ “Spectre” opens in UK cinemas next month. Despite being contractually tied in for 1 more ‘Bond’ movie after “Spectre”, critics have been speculating for months that he’ll be quitting the franchise after the new movie opens. But Craig now insists he’ll keep going as long as he’s physically able.

★ And disgraced 78-year-old comedian Bill Cosby has been stripped of a 3rd honorary degree within the space of a week. Both NYC’s Fordham University and Marquette University in Milwaukee WI rescinded his honors last week in response to his ongoing sexual assault scandal. And now Brown University in Providence RI has followed suit by stripping Cosby of the honorary degree that was awarded to him in 1985.

BS REASONS TO PARTY . . .
• “Ask a Stupid Question Day”, observed annually on the last school day in September to perpetuate the idea that ‘asking a stupid question is better than repairing a stupid mistake’. It’s an idea that goes back to the 1980s when there was a movement by teachers to get kids to ask more questions in the classroom.

• “Hot Mulled Cider Day”, a day to cradle a warm cup of spiced cider in your hands, breathe in the fragrance, and then take a sip. It’s a cool-weather treat for all your senses.

• “International Blasphemy Day”, which encourages individuals and groups to openly express criticism of religion, and blasphemy laws. It was founded in 2009 by the Center for Inquiry.

• “International Translation Day”, introduced in 1991 by the International Federation of Translators. Online translators allow you to switch from language-to-language instantly. Try translating an English message to another language then back to English. Odds are you’ll get something that’s really wonky.

• “Mud Pack Day”, a day to pile on the facial treatment. The green goop is best, right?

• “Women’s Health & Fitness Day”, the largest annual health promotion event for women of all ages. Upwards of 75,000 women are expected to participate in a variety of local activities.
