Vegas still crazy for Britney

Britney Spears is going to hit you one more time, Las Vegas. A bunch more times actually.

Caesars Entertainment said Sunday that the singer is adding more than 30 dates to her Las Vegas residency. “Britney: Piece of Me” will now play shows in October through December and February. Shows have also been added in August and September.

Tickets to the new shows go on sale Friday. The Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino says the first round of shows in August and September sold out. The 31-year-old Spears kicked off the two-year residency late last year around the time she released her eighth album, Britney Spears.

X-MEN STAR: WEAR SUNSCREEN

Hugh Jackman has had another cancerous growth removed.

The 45-year-old actor attended the p

remiere of his latest film, X-Men: Days of Future Past, Saturday night with a bandage over his nose. He told The Associated Press he had a basal-cell carcinoma removed two nights earlier. Jackman said he learned the results of a recent biopsy earlier on Thursday, and had it removed.

Jackman urges others to “get checkups and wear sunscreen.”

    No slime: Indian dish brings out the best of okra

    I am glad that no one ever forced stewed okra on me during my childhood, because the stories I’ve heard from stewed-okra veterans have been traumatizing. Friends and colleagues have described memories of okra that was sulfurous and slimy and yet left a cottony feeling on their tongues and gums. (This is no coincidence: The okra plant is related to the cotton plant.)

    Cats can pick up virus at vet’s, but they can also transmit it themselves

    Q: Our cats had to go to the vet hospital last week to have their teeth cleaned. The procedures went very well and, as predicted, both were back to normal that evening. Unfortunately, two days later they both started sneezing. First Patches and then Stumpy came down with the exact same cold. Patches got better but we had to take Stumpy back to the hospital. We actually had to pay more for his cold than for the teeth cleaning! Shouldn’t the vet have gone easy on us since our cats live safely indoors and they obviously caught the cold there?
