Isn't she too old for that? Katie Holmes carries tired Suri Cruise off to bed after another big day
For the five-year-old was spotted being carried into her parents' New York home by her mother Katie Holmes tonight.
But considering her propensity to go into emotional meltdowns, perhaps the actress was just playing it safe by giving her daughter a lift.

She was spotted bursting into tears on a New York street yesterday.
But whatever had been upsetting her, she seemed back to her old self when she stepped out with her mother earlier today.
She was smiling away as she walked around the Big Apple.

She was showing off her love of fashion in an adorable outfit which consisted of a pink floral dress lilac jacket and silver ballet pumps.
Suri also wore a pretty pink ribbon headband amid her brunette locks, and carried a cuddly toy.
Katie, 33, also seemed in good spirits as she held her daughter’s hand while they strolled down the street.

She was dressed casually in a black ruffled shirt and blue high-waisted flared jeans.
Black boots could just be seen poking out from underneath the denim and the actress accessorised her outfit with a pair of sunglasses.
It was a far cry from the scene a day earlier when Suri had broken down in tears in public.

Doting mother Katie was seen comforting her daughter, and then trying to cheer her up with distractions. 
And it seems to have worked as Suri was later seen contentedly carrying a large box from the Build-a-Bear Workshop.
It was a busy day for Suri, who also had accompanied her mother and grandmother Kathleen Holmes to the Chelsea Piers, lunch at Balthazar in SoHo and coffee at the Time Warner Building.

Frozen Foam Beer

A news report and a video advertisement for Kirin’s new beer with frozen foam:

It is called Ichiban Shibori Frozen Nama (一番搾りフローズン<生>) It appears that they use a machine to add frozen beer bubbles on top of normal Kirin Ichiban beer. The bubbles are very cold: -5 degrees Celsius. They claim that the frozen layer can keep the beer below it cold for about half an hour. Sounds like a fantastic way to keep beer cold during the super hot winter months!
It is available in the Tokyo area as part of a trial run. Kirin plans to sell it across the country starting in May.

What will your mother say! Madonna's daughter Lourdes Leon caught smoking at the tender age of 15

Madonna's 15-year-old daughter Lourdes Leon appears to already have picked up a bad nicotine habit after she was pictured smoking a cigarette on Friday.
The eldest daughter of the Material Girl was seen puffing away as she loitered around with male friends in New York.
She had the cigarette in her hand as a pal lighted it for her and seemed very comfortable with it. The legal age for smoking in America is 18.

Wearing a black and white mini dress with matching shoes, the 10th grade schoolgirl wore dark shades and her long hair loosely around her shoulders.
At one point she even sneakily tried to hide the cigarette in her hand by holding it upside down as she walked along.
Lourdes is following in her mother's footsteps in many ways including her passion for fashion with the family's clothing line Material Girl.

But as Madonna was seen seductively posing with a cigarette in her latest music video Girl Gone Wild, it appears it may be a bad habit picked up closer to home.
Madonna's rep had denied the singer had started smoking again after pictures surfaced of her with what looked like a cigarette in hand while shooting her movie W.E. in 2010.
But regardless of whether the 53-year-old was just posing with it or does still smoke, it may not be the best example to set for her four children.

Lourdes will reportedly join her mother's backing dancers when she kicks off her 50-country world tour in Israel in May.
'It is the first time Lourdes will have appeared on stage with her mum,' says a source.
'There are risqué dancers and some blatantly sexual dance routines – but Madonna is really excited about Lourdes making an appearance.'

The 47 Dwarfs



In the 1930s, as they began work on the big-screen adaptation of Snow Whiteby the Brothers Grimm, the writing team at Disney compiled the following list of potential names for the seven dwarfs — characters who, in the original story, were unnamed. As we now know, Bashful, Dopey, Grumpy, Happy, Sleepy, and Sneezy were picked. The name of their leader, Doc, was chosen at a later date.

Note: Some twenty years beforehand, in 1912, the story had been adapted for the Broadway stage by Winthrop Ames. In that production, the dwarfs were named Blick, Flick, Glick, Snick, Plick, Whick, and Quee.
