L.A.-based Angel City Brewery has created an Avocado beer. A pint costs $6. Brewer Dieter Forstner tells the Daily Mail, ”It’s not what traditionalists would expect a beer to taste like. It does have a well-pronounced avocado flavor, so people who don’t care for the fruit to begin with might not enjoy it. Being an avocado lover, I love it.” The brew contains avocado, crushed red pepper, garlic, lime, cilantro, malt and hops.
Next Time You’re Rejected For A Loan, Blame Facebook
You’re already concerned about your credit score; one day you may also have to be concerned about your Facebook friends – because a few tech startups are using social data when determining whether to loan you money. One company checks out whether your Facebook friends list includes anyone who’s ever been late paying back a Lenddo loan, and, if so, how often you interact with that person.

Are Prince Andrew and Ex-Wife Fergie Rekindling Their Romance?
Prince Andrew and his ex-wife, Sarah “Fergie” Ferguson, famously remained good friends after their 1996 divorce, and now British media reports are saying they might be rekindling their romance. The speculation was fueled by news that Fergie joined Andrew and their their daughters, who are now in their 20s, for a weekend earlier this month at Balmoral, the Queen’s Scottish estate. It was the first time that Fergie, who was stripped of her royal title when she and Andrew divorced, had been invited to the family’s vacation home since 1992, when she was involved in the first of several scandals. In the most recent, Fergie was caught on camera in 2010 taking money in exchange for a promise of business access to Andrew. She apologized and said Andrew wasn’t aware of or involved in any of it, but the royal family excluded her from the 2011 wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton. If Andrew and Fergie are renewing their romance, Ingrid Seward, editor-in-chief of Majesty magazine, told ABC News that a serious obstacle remains for anything more serious, such as remarriage. She said, “Nothing is going to happen as long as Prince Philip is alive. Prince Philip actively dislikes Fergie and has said so publicly.”
