  • In the past we have told you about dads who have constructed awesome playrooms for their kids, like the flight simulator cockpit and the spaceship room. Well, now a grandfather is getting in on the action. Rusty Combs from Oldham County, Kentucky, built a log cabin for his 20-month-old granddaughter, Kiley. Here's the cool and, well, crazy part about it — it's situated 50 feet in the air atop an old corn silo. Getting to what Combs calls Kiley's Clubhouse is not for the faint of heart. You need to climb four 8-foot ladders that lead you to the two-room cabin.

    Combs's idea for the playhouse has been years in the making. He originally wanted to build it for his sons but never got around to it. When he decided to create it for Kiley, after two years of building, he had to enlist a crane to lift the cabin up to the top of the silo. And if you are wondering if this is even safe, Combs says safety was key. He had to get a building permit, and a structural architect had to approve the design.

  • Goldfish crackers are "the snack that smiles back," according to the advertising. It is indeed hard not to like eating the little guys by the tens or even hundreds (like I do). But you may smile for a whole new reason thanks to the delightful high jinks and dexterity featured in a new Vine video. The vine is called "Fun on the Treadmill" and is exactly that. In it, a young man tries out some new ways of cramming the golden crackers into his mouth.

    Vine user Savannah has gotten a lot of attention from the Vine community for herPac-Man-like friend. The vine originally gained notice on Reddit'sGIFs forum, where a user even made an infinite GIF of the man's antics. The vine itself has received more than 187,000 likes and 200,000 revines. It has even had a bunch of copycat Goldfish fans who wanted to try their hand at it, mostly ending in disappointment. So keep in mind, don't try this at home unless you are a professional.

  • Our story today has a bad beginning with a surprisingly good ending. Recently, Tona Herndon was grieving the loss of her husband of more than 60 years at his gravesite in Bethany, Oklahoma. Herndon's husband had died the week before the visit. While at the cemetery, she was allegedly mugged by Shane Lunsford. After a search by police, a surveillance video helped put 39-year-old Lunsford behind bars.

    Now, that could have been the end of the story, but there's more. Lunsford's 15-year-old son, Christian, asked to meet Herndon this past Sunday in a church parking lot to try to make amends. Christian apologized to Herndon and gave her $250 in cash that his father had recently given him for a band trip. Christian said he was not surprised to hear of his father's behavior and added, "When I found out this whole situation, I didn't know if it was hers or his or how — I just knew I needed to give the money to her."

    But instead of keeping the cash from Christian, Herndon handed it right back to

  • Millennials are never absent from conversations about the future, and those conversations range from practical to downright insulting. How will the world change as this generation grows up? How will social sharing and the workforce change? Are millennials too self-obsessed to put down their phones and get ajob? As part of Yahoo News' live-stream event, " Born Digital," experts and college students tackled what people are doing wrong on social media and what they can do right. This generation has grown up with sharing (or oversharing) every aspect of life. How do you navigate what helps you and what turns you into a public embarrassment?

    Farnoosh Torabi, of Yahoo's own "Financially Fit," was joined by Matthew Segal, founder and CEO of, an organization that works to help young people get ahead; Dan Schawbel, author of "Promote Yourself: The New Rules for Career Success"; and Cara Friedman, senior director of marketing at Likeable Media.

  • Here at Trending Now, we appreciate a good love story, especially one that involves dresses. Paul and Margot Brockmann from Los Angeles have been ballroom dancing for more than 50 years. Paul wanted his wife to look special each time throughout the years. He said he and Margot "went ballroom dancing every week, and I wanted her to have a different dress for every dance."

    After all the years of racking up the gowns, the Brockmanns now have a collection of more than 55,000 dresses! Paul purchased dresses at estate sales, department stores, and antique shows before, after, and even sometimes during work, which might be why many of the dresses have never been worn — there were just too many! Well, after 56 years of marriage, Paul, now 78, and Margot, now 76, decided it was time to start selling the dresses, mostly because it costs thousands of dollars each month to store the collection. Paul set up a website,, where the Brockmanns' prized dresses can be purchased. But
