Random Tid Bits

  1. I get invited to a lot of things on Facebook. I'm an art instructor, so each and every past student that created an art page I get invited to like. It's annoying at times, but I want to show my support, so I like it.

    Recently I get invited to like a page called: The United State of Women. I didn't hit that like button. It's not that I'm anti women. I am one. It's just that I feel like groups like that tend to think women are super heroes, should take over the job market, and should be free to do whatever they please. They often bash men. Yes women are important, but so are men.

    I'm a mother of boys. I just don't want to get on the man bashing trail. Yes the idea of being equal is great. I hate that women get paid less then men in some industries. On the flip side there are some jobs where many more men could do better than I could. I could do better than them in other areas. I don't think a woman (depending on the woman) would make a bad president. A job that requires a lot of strength might be better for a man. I'm sorry if this sounds like I'm against women. I'm not! At all! 

  2. I put mixed berries on the boy's plates one morning this week. Isaak left a few berries untouched. I said, "What's with those berries?" pointing at them. He said, "There's something wrong with them. They are bumpy." I forgot to tell him that I mixed a few mulberries I picked from work with the blueberries and Juneberries. They are bumpy like raspberries. 

  3. There are times where I pull an Alanis Morisette and think about things that are ironic. Just this morning I was flipping through stations on the radio. I finally found a station that wasn't blah blah blah talking. Tunes lift up my mood. It was a good song, but I can't remember what song it was. Just like that static happened. It was a Lincoln station an hour away. 

  4. The boys have their show for their theater camp today. I hope it goes well for them.

  5. The boys were impossible to get up and out of bed today. What's a Mom/Wife to do? I turned on Milli Vanilli, and sang to it. 

  6. Its's too bad that the real singers didn't get a whole lot of credit, and to be honest these two guys should have gotten some award for being great lip sinkers, and putting on a great show. Instead they lived the rest of their lives in shame, and one committed suicide. It wasn't just the boys that lied, the real singers lied, the band members lied, the sound guys lied, and most of all the producer lied. Were you a Milli Vanilli fan back in the day?

I don't like the women's groups either. Some of them are downright nasty women that don't like men at all. I am sure there are some good women's groups that don't really bash the men... but I haven't seen any.

I don't like any group that excluded others. I need to go unlike a lot of pages. I get too much junk on my feed as it is.

Yes, I was nuts about Milli Vanilli way back in the day!

I didn't realize one of the singers committed suicide after that whole mess. They did have a couple of catchy songs.

No, I'm more of a Meryle Haggard, Hang Williams Jr. guy.

I think you have a lot of company in the way you feel about how we all fit into society. I know my wife would agree with you, and I do too.

I loved listening to Milli Vanilli back in the day. Their scandal didn't bother me.

I also liked Milli Vanilli back in the day. It is a shame what happened to them. If I remember correctly I liked the way they danced also. I think it is cute that you woke the boys up to their song!

I am a big fan of Alanis and I managed to watch her concert in Jakarta! It was great for sure...and Mili Vanili? I know them by heart as well :)

Love both Alanis... and MV -
Good music!

That whole Milli Vanilli thing was such a shame. Especially now that big acts like Brittany Spears lip sink all the time. I don't know why people were so hard on them back in the day.
