Bunny owners or anyone with experience, I am in need!

So, some of you heard about my bunny's recent trip to the vet. She's doing well and seems comfortable, however the vet did notice something odd about her leg, that it seems to be more outward of her body.
After doing some poking around the net, I have come to the conclusion that she has a splayed leg. Please see the link for details, but basically, one of her legs is pushed outward.
She doesn't seem to be in any kind of pain, even when someone touches it or it's moved. She's up there in age, 12 years old.
Anyone had a rabbit who had this? Anything I should watch out for or ways I can keep it from getting worse?

Have any of you / people you know bought one of the smaller Samsung smart phones? There's the SIII mini, the Gio, and the Pocket, I think. I'm considering buying one of those because smart phones are handy but I don't really like how large the Samsung SIII, iPhone etc. are.

Or any other recs for small smartphones?

What is this!?

Rings up as "Lemon Pear" but nothing of that name comes up on Google
and it has a pit like a peach, thin slick skin and turns super bright
red when ripe and super sweet/juicy.

What would you do if you were walking outside and noticed a little girl (around 3) standing outside the door of a house in the cold barefoot, without a coat screaming for help? Assume it's winter, there's snow everywhere and it's very windy.

Gym routines, specifically dumbbell exercises

I just joined the gym, and I really like going to classes and running on the treadmill and doing some weights and sit ups and what not, but I am keen to get a better routine going. At the moment I enjoy using dumbbells to work my arms, but I only know a couple of exercises using them. Does anyone know of any sites or anything where there are instructions (with pictures/printables would be great) of lots of different dumbbell exercises?

And just any other info you have on other types of gym exercises or gym routines would be great too.

P.S. The last time I was at the gym, I was using the dumbbells and this woman came and stood next to me. She stood with her feet hip-width apart, and her arms were kind of positioned as though she was about to lift a barbell. Then she just lifted her hands up a bit. She did this over and over, with nothing in her hands. Does anyone know what exercise this is?! It legit looked like she was just lifting an invisible barbell for ten minutes. I just tried doing it myself now and felt absolutely nothing, unless maybe she was tightening her abs when she did her little arm movement. It just confused me.
