On TV: ‘ThunderCats’ on Cartoon Network at 8 p.m. EDT/ 7 p.m. CDT


Many remember “ThunderCats” from childhood. It was a popular animated TV series about heroic cat-human aliens who fled their homeland after being attacked by their enemies, the Mutants of Plun-Darr. The series debuted in 1985, and now Warner Bros. Animation is bringing it back. Tonight is the season premiere.


Trending topic: Soulja Boy


Soulja Boy is a prominent rap artist, known for his hit track “Crank That (Soulja Boy),” and today he turned 21. As a birthday present to himself, he spent $35 million on a G5 private jet, according to TMZ.com, and another $20 million in upgrades, like custom Italian leather seats, Brazilian hardwood cabinets and travertine-tiled floors. In this recession, it’s nice to know some people are still spending money.


Dinner idea: Guacamole




3 avocados, peeled, pitted and mashed

1 lime, juiced

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup diced onion

3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

2 roma (plum) tomatoes, diced

1 teaspoon minced garlic

1 pinch ground cayenne pepper (optional)

In a medium bowl, mash together the avocados, lime juice and salt. Mix in onion, cilantro, tomatoes and garlic. Stir in cayenne pepper. Refrigerate one hour for best flavor, or serve immediately.
