SANTA BARBARA SHOOTING ...

And the right wing speaks:

Joe the Plumber aka Samuel Wurzelbacher, penned an open letter on the website Barbwire, where he explained to the UC Santa Barbara victims' parents that the deaths won't undermine his "Constitutional rights."  I read his letter, and though he does express sympathy and sorrow at the loss of their loved ones and states that he will pray for them, in the same breath he also states ... "But:  As harsh as this sounds - your dead kids don't trump my Constitutional rights."  I have a few thoughts I'd like to share.  What about the Constitutional rights of those kids who were shot down like animals in the street?  What about their hopes and dreams Joe?  What about their futures?  A longed for career?  A dreamed of wedding?  Children?  What about their rights?  You say that their lives, taken at the hand of an insane maniac, don't trump your right to own a gun.  I disagree.  I understand that YOU are a responsible gun owner, BUT…

THE DIRTY ON KIM AND KANYE ...

So last post I said I was going to try to be less a part of all that is nonsense and try to blog about more positive topics that convey wisdom and truth.  However, I did also say that I would continue to dish dirt (on occasion) ... so here is the dirt: The whole world is all a twitter because Kimye is tying the knot this weekend and the ONLY, and I repeat ONLY reason I am blogging about this is because I have fans who expect me to weigh in on the third walk down the aisle for Miss Kim.  So here goes. Word on the street is that brother-from-another-mother, Brody Jenner, is boycotting the wedding because Kim did not invite “plus ones” which means Brody can’t bring his girlfriend.  I always hated that when I was single.  I can’t tell you how many invitations I got that were addressed to ‘JUST ME’ … but you know what?  I WENT ALONE to countless weddings and never had a problem because when you got STYLE and CONFIDENCE you don’t need no stinkin’ date!  Anywho, Kim has enough cash to invite …

WORD OF THE DAY ....

My husband loves to find new and interesting ways to annoy the crap outta me.  Lately, he's taken to testing me with new words from a game he found on the internet which he tortures me with EVERY.  SINGLE.  DAY.  Because I'm an avid reader he thinks I'm super smart.  Which I'm not.  I just have a better vocabulary than he does, but whatever.  Let him think whatever he wants.

So now he is constantly testing new words on me.  We'll be relaxing on the couch watching t.v. when the computer will all of a sudden say --  in it's computer voice  -- "spumescent" ... and that is my cue to guess what the word means.  I will then turn to my husband, his smiling face greeting me with a look in his eyes that is taunting yet playful. 

Now, I don't mind so much playing this stupid game because I am ALMOST ALWAYS RIGHT, but what bugs the crap outta me is that he doesn't play fair.  I'll say "what do I get if I win?  I want a dress from Nordstrom."…

V-A-C-A-T-I-O-N !!!

So, Danny and I just returned from a GREAT vacation down south.  We visited Atlanta, Asheville, Charleston and Savannah.  I have never been anywhere where the people are SO NICE.  That Southern Charm is REAL FOLKS ... and we did not have a bad meal anywhere.  The food was simply fantastic.  It was nine days of no cellphone, no Facebook, just living in the moment and enjoying the beautiful surroundings.  Trees, beautiful trees everywhere and even though it was hot and humid the breeze through those glorious trees was revitalizing and cooling.  Though I loved every city we visited, I think my favorite was Charleston.  Picture postcard pretty. 
Being out of touch and away from my usual routine was beyond restful and I realized that being unplugged is very healing to the soul.  The almost constant obsession to check in on Facebook, email, etc., takes up so much precious time from being PRESENT.  I know that's an overused word but its true. For instance, nine days away and I have no id…
