DECLAWED -- In a sport once dominated by American Tiger Woods, European golfers excelled tee-to-green in 2012 capturing The U.S. Open, the Masters, the PGA Championship and the Ryder Cup. Tiger does deserve an honorable mention, though, for avoiding emergency sutures on Thanksgiving with ex-wife, Elin.
THRICE NICE -- A team of UC Riverside researchers determined that kids who performed three "acts of kindness" a week were treated markedly better by their peers. The kind acts ranged from sharing lunch items with classmates, performing household chores and, in the case of the Hollywood kids, running lines with their actor parents on alternate visitation weekends.
BEFORE ITS TIME -- Once a leader in stocking boxed wine, Safeway will soon offer its own in-house brand of domestic reds, whites and chardonnays. Already featured in American Cork Magazine, one critic described the red as "... possessing the earthy bouquet of a Napa Merlot with just a hint of sweaty box boy, confirming yet again that seven is a good aisle."
LOVIN' IT -- Amid fanfare and kudos all around for record-setting sales in November, the McDonald's Corporation nearly busted its sesame seeds over the announcement they had reached their one-hundred billionth burger sold worldwide. Not as much hoopla, however, for the 600 million heart bypass surgeries directly attributable to the Golden Arches.
