Our families downward spiral to being the next generation of Jacka$$ cast.

I have been voicing my constant worry since my three boys started talking.  What keeps me up at night?  I don't want to be that poor mother on Jacka$.  You know, Bam's mom.  The mom that they set fireworks off at night in a trash can in her bedroom, while she is sleeping.  I am worried my boys, (and me, the victim) will be the next generation of the Jacka$ cast.   ...more

Facebook Buys Instagram for $1 Billion

Here I am, minding my own business and trying to write a blog post about being a grandmother that somehow turned into a political post about health care when TW says to me, "Facebook bought Instagram for ONE BILLION DOLLARS" (in cash and shares.) My response, "That's nice." Then, my co-workers started talking about it and my response changed to, "Yippee!" Why? Because I'm a Facebook fan and while I don't use Instagram very often, I know a whole lot of people who do. ...more

The joy of teapots... or my dose of cellulitis!

So. Teapots. I'd been after one for a while, just for pretentious reasons you understand. There's something I rather like about teapots, though I know not why. I always drink tea from a mug, and I like to make it in the mug because it's generally stronger that way. I'm a bit of a builder at heart I reckon. I don't know why I decided I needed a teapot, but I know I didn't want one enough to spend any real money on it. I'd been looking for a while, but all the ones I'd found were over €10 and I'm too stingy to pay that much for my pretentions....more
