On this Groundhog Day we look to the stars with the news of a meteorite passing us by, though some doomsayer's believe it will impact. Other news stories include carjackers in North Carolina who tried to slow down their victims by placing a child-like dummy in the road, while in Australia police posted a traffic citation where the driver was fined even though he had a good excuse, and the Holmes Bakery in Los Angeles who have combined the French croissant with Japanese sushi, that is an acquired taste.

Our first news story will send a shiver down the spine, it involving a sleeping woman and a cockroach. There are concerns over a parking company who are encouraging their clients to take photographs of bad parking to increase their income in fines, and over in Scotland an Edinburgh man lost his case in wanting to keep his dead parents at home. We end in Texas where a family didn't realise they were living with a family of rattlesnakes till one inadvertently came up out of the toilet. And just to make you hungry, there's Norm's Food Rant.

Flying high, this week we go to United Airlines who was given the task of transporting a rabbit named Simon, that they ended up killing. A woman from China returned home after a backpacking trip to the rain forest with three lumps on her body from what she though was insect bites, but that was far from the case. Going to Newport, Oregon where police received photo evidence from a concerned citizen of a cat in a tree with a sniper rifle. And also ending with United Airlines, we can report that Dr Dao, who was physically removed from an over-booked flight, breaking his nose in the incident, have settled with the doctor in an undisclosed sum.
