Blog Backlash or Maybe I Really Am Kate Gosselin

Karen | mom-mom-mom.comMy kids never listen to me. Except when I am having a curse-filled, catty private conversation on the phone. In the basement. Locked in the laundry room. Naturally, my kids have overheard mentions about this blog and are curious what it’s all about. Especially since they are banned from it.  So last night, I read a few stories from the site (skipping over some swears) and the three of us were crying from giggling so hard.

I was pretty surprised to find a picture because it is actually illegal to post pictures or identifying information about foster children....more

The first thing to come up on Google for me is my Ham Radio license and then my Twitter account. ...more

Inception; Have we all lost our minds?

Christopher Nolan's movie, 'Inception' projects an engaging psychological approach to the human mind. After two hours and twenty-two minutes, I walked out of the theatre lost in another's reality. My conclusion to the overall concept of the plot? There is no plot. This is not your average story and there are three things that this movie provided me,1. The human mind is vast and complex 2. There is no reality without hope or 'dreams'. 3. As humans our internal drive is to create a 'homeostasis' which relieves us from pain and suffering....more
