Best & Worst Moms Ever

Some of them smothered their children with love. Others just smothered them. In honor of Mother’s Day Time.com presents a highly unscientific study of the ten best and worst mothers from the worlds of pop culture.

Check out the list HERE.


Marge Simpson

There are a lot of reasons to love Marge. Her heart is as big as her hair. She’s sweet, simple, unflappable, and like Edith Bunker before her, she uses her goodness as a shield from the crudeness of her husband and the never-ending needs of her kids. Sure, she’s subsumed all of her larger dreams — of becoming an artist, an actress, a professional bowler or anything else for that matter — to tend to home and hearth, but that’s why we have dream sequences.

Legendary Musician Billy Joel Joins Biggest Celebration of The Year With Special Live Performance From Brooklyn On Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve With Ryan Seacrest 2014

Billy Joel, Self Assignment, January 7, 2006

Billy Joel will appear in a special live performance from Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn on “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest,” performing one of his classic hits as the first song of the New Year.

Show host Ryan Seacrest will lead the traditional countdown at midnight, and co-host Jenny McCarthy (“The View”) will join him throughout the broadcast, live from Times Square.

Personally, I could care less about Capital Cities, Miley Cyrus, Daughtry, Jason Derulo, Fall Out Boy, Florida Georgia Line, Ariana Grande, Icona Pop, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and Robin Thicke but I will watch the show for Billy Joel and Blondie; I guess I’m old school!

“Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2014,” is a bi-coastal celebration with a West Coast celebration hosted by Fergie of the Black Eyed Peas. Coverage of “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2014,” will feature hours of special performances and reports on New Year’s celebrations from around the globe, beginning at 8:00 PM ET/PT on ABC.

THE FIRE WIRE 2013 Holiday Must-Have List: Beecher’s Flagship Cheddar Cheese


This is my all-time favorite cheddar cheese in the world and if you have a cheese lover on your Holiday shopping list, surprise them with this delicacy! Who doesn’t love cheese in their stockings?

The first wheel of Flagship, Beecher’s signature cheese, was handcrafted just as Beecher’s Handmade Cheese opened its doors in Seattle’s historic Pike Place Market in November of 2003.

Flagship is a semi-hard cow’s milk cheese with a uniquely robust, nutty flavor. It is carefully aged for 15 months under the watchful eye of the cheesemaker to fully develop its complex flavor and ever-so-slight crumble. Outstanding on a Beecher’s Cracker!


Delivered in two pieces weighing approximately 8 ounces each for $20 + shipping. Order HERE.

Available at fine cheese shops and supermarkets Nationwide or visit their two locations:

Pike Place Market
1600 Pike Place
Seattle, WA 98101

New York:
Flatiron District
900 Broadway
New York, NY 10003
