Bigfoot Sighting Reported In Nebraska-A woman is claiming she saw Bigfoot in western Nebraska.
The Nebraska State Patrol says a Colorado woman reported seeing a creature at least eight-feet-tall Saturday night on Interstate-80 near Brady, Nebraska. Robin Roberts (not that one!) had just dropped off a friend and was traveling on the roadway when she saw the legendary creature behind a deer fence.
Roberts called police to report the sighting and the patrol sent a trooper to investigate. Troopers searched the area, but could not locate the famed creature. Source: Star Herald
What The World’s Most Expensive Cheesecake Is Like
The most expensive cheesecake in the world is from Rafele Ristorante in New York City and it’s $5,000. But unlike those gimmicky desserts that cost $10,000 but come with a diamond ring or a trip, this one is so expensive because of the ingredients they use to make it. So when Robert Frank, host of “Secret Lives of the Super Rich” had the chance to try some of this high-end cheesecake, he jumped at the opportunity.
The cheese is far from the silver packs of Philadelphia cream cheese we’ve all used, this stuff comes from water buffalo in Italy and is flown in fresh. And the 200-year-old Hennessy Paradis cognac that costs $2,500 a bottle adds to the price tag too, this cheesecake has about three shots in it, worth around $300. Add in the vanilla beans imported from Madagascar, the Italian white truffles, and sprinkling of gold flakes, and you can see how the price climbs.
Frank admits that $5,000 is an “obscene price for a cheesecake,” but he says it was the best he ever had. And since that five-grand breaks down to $450 a slice, or about $90 a bite, we’ll just have to take his word for it. “With cheesecake - if not with life - richer is better,” he says. “Much better.”
People Are Paying $1,000 For Upside Down Christmas Trees
Upside down Christmas trees are sprouting up at hotels and department stores, on sale for upwards of $500 at Target and Home Depot and causing quite the spectacle. For the balancing act to work, trees are hung from the ceiling with the top of the tree touching the ground. Some have been using stands to hold the narrow tip of the Christmas tree. The artificial Douglas Fir-looking trees come sans pine needle clean up on sale at stores like Walmart, which nearly sold out of its Champagne-colored $250 upside down tree. Kohl’s has a 7.5-foot one that comes pre-lit for $450 and one in the same size without lights is a little more than $1,000 at Target. A cheaper 7-foot-3 tree is $160 at Home Depot.

Arkansas Couple Announce Baby Named After Olive Garden
A pair of Olive Garden fans in Arkansas announced plans to name their firstborn child after their favorite eatery: Olivia Garton.
Justin and Jordan Garton of Fort Smith said they have decided to name the baby, due in December, after the restaurant where they once ate every day for seven weeks after buying a "never ending pasta pass" in 2015.
"We committed to eating there every day for six or seven weeks to get our money's worth," Justin Garton, 28, told ABC's Good Morning America. "It saved us several hundred dollars when we really needed it."
The couple said they quickly ruled out Olive Garton for the baby's name, but soon settled on Olivia.
"We were able to make the joke, but a little more subtle, and it's still a pretty name," said Jordan Garton, 26. "It was definitely an easy decision."
An Olive Garden company spokeswoman said the restaurant chain was aware of the couple's name thanks to a photo of a custom-made onesie that Justin Garton posted on Twitter.
The spokeswoman said the company is planning a "little surprise" for the new parents.
