The pigtail girl on the Wendy's logo has gotten a makeover, as part of the fast food chain's attempt to reinvent itself as a more upscale eatery in the mold of Panera Bread and Chipotle Mexican Grill.

Wendy's executives say focus groups balked at extreme new looks for the pigtail girl, but that garish red hair color looks pretty punk-rock to The Buzz. And those freckles could actually be piercings or tattoos, for all we know.

There goes the sun: You know that sunny, dry fall weather we've been enjoying? Kiss it goodbye. The first in a series of Pacific storms rolls through the area today.

As long as you're thinking about the weather, be sure to write "Replace lost sunglasses" on your to-do list for May 15, 2013, which is the earliest you'll be needing them.

Teeny bopper family tree: Genealogists at say teen idol Justin Bieber is a distant cousin of pretty-boy actor Ryan Gosling and teen queen singer Avril Lavigne.

Every family has a black sheep, and the Bieber clan is no exception -- he's also distantly related to Celine Dion.
