First, news agencies reported the birth of a little boy to Julia Roberts.
Then came the news that Tiger Woods is a officially a daddy.
What’s most interesting to me are the way these births reported. “Tiger has a cub.”
“Julia Roberts gives birth to Pretty Baby.”

On Monday, I asked you about your favorite summer refreshment.

Here’s one more suggestion from a News from the Web reader: Arizona Diet Green Tea.
I’m a green tea fan myself, usually opting for the hot verson of the beverage mid-morning.
Lately, however, I’ve been drinking unsweetened organic iced green tea. It’s quite refreshing, but it has a little bit of an aftertaste that’s vaguely citrus, a result of the added preservative to keep it safe for me to drink while it sits on the shelf waiting for me to purchase it.
Really, I should become less lazy and brew my own fresh green tea.
Regardless, drinking more of it might help us all to reach the century mark.
The world’s oldest man — and the oldest woman — both hail from Japan, a country of green tea drinking enthusiasts.
What is your secret to longevity?
If you don’t have one, I’ll be satisfied with more summer drink options.
