There's a big difference between the cereal we LIKE and the cereal we actually buy and eat . . . because apparently, we just love depriving ourselves.  

A real estate blog called Movoto just figured out the most popular cereal in each state based on Facebook likes, and compared that with the best-selling cereals in the U.S.  

Honey Nut Cheerios was the best-selling cereal in 2013 . . . but it's not the most liked cereal in a single state.  That honor goes to Cinnamon Toast Crunch . . . which is the most-liked cereal in over HALF of the country, with 27 states.  BUT it's only the fifth-best selling cereal overall.  

The top 10 best selling cereals in the U.S. are:  
1) Honey Nut Cheerios
2) Frosted Flakes 
3) Honey Bunches of Oats 
4) Cheerios 
5) Cinnamon Toast Crunch
6) Special K 
7) Frosted Mini Wheats
8) Lucky Charms 
9) Froot Loops
10) Raisin Bran.  

After Cinnamon Toast Crunch, the next-most liked cereal is Special K.  It's the most popular cereal in 21 states.  So either Cinnamon Toast Crunch or Special K is number one in 48 out of 50 states.  The two others:  Froot Loops is the most liked cereal in Kentucky . . . and Frosted Mini Wheats is the most liked cereal in West Virginia.   

The most liked cereal in Wyoming is......Cinnamon Toast Crunch. What's in your cereal bowl?

 Here are the top 10 . . .  
1.  Ordering their food for them, 61%.
2.  Noisy eating, 56%. 
3.  Posting on social media during the date, 45%.

There are few things more socially uncomfortable than staring blankly at a wine list and not knowing what anything is, let alone how to pronounce it. 
But now for just $5, you can be an expert and all it takes is a smartphone.A new app called WineGlass will allow you to point your camera at the name of the wine on the menu and then pull up everything you need to know about it – what you should expect to pay for a bottle at a restaurant, a star rating, point score, what the wine tastes like, and what food it pairs well with. 
So go forth and drink with confidence! We're still waiting on an app that holds your hand while making choices on hard-to-pronounce French cheeses. (Daily Mail)

A new limited-edition Blu-ray featuring the Director's Cut of Woodstock: 3 Days of Peace and Music, the Oscar-winning documentary about the historic 1969 rock festival, will hit stores this Tuesday.  The updated Woodstock video will include all of the content featured in 2009's 40th Anniversary Ultimate Collector's Edition, plus a bevy of previously unreleased performances from the concert.

Among those newly added performances are songs by Crosby, Stills & Nash, The Who, Santana, Jefferson Airplane, Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Joan Baez, Melanie and Sha Na Na.  In addition, the updated collection comes packaged with replicas of Woodstock festival tickets, a reproduction of a Life magazine article about the event and an iron-on patch of the Woodstock logo.

Like the 2009 version of the video, the 40th Anniversary Limited Edition Revisited Blu-ray includes a four-hour-plus-long Director's Cut of the film, 18 bonus performances and a number of documentary featurettes offering up interviews with a variety of celebrities.

Directed by Michael Wadleigh, Woodstock: 3 Days of Peace and Music showcased highlights from the Woodstock Music and Art Fair, held August 15-18, 1969, at Max Yasgur's dairy farm in Bethel, New York.  In addition to the aforementioned artists, the event's lineup included Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Joe Cocker, Ten Years After, Richie Havens, Country Joe and the Fish and many more.
