I was referred to this website by a friend-- and I am majorly confused about this site. How do we make friends? How do I find blogs that I am interested in? Can anyone explain to me the significance of blogging? Just a thought here-- Is this like a popularity contest like in high school?? The better the blog, the more popular the person is. Like the better the designer clothes, the more popular the student is. Another example-- the more follower the blog has, the more popular the person is. The… Continue

A couple of funny conversations to make you laugh this weekend courtesy of my 3 nearly 4 year old.
1) Whilst watching 'space pirates' on cbeebies an Australian Aborigine dance act comes on and starts dancing like emus
3year old: what is he doing?
me: he is pretending to be an emu
3year old: what's an emu?
me: it is a big bird that doesn't fly
3year old: that guy is crazy
3year old: he is… Continue

I was a hard working member of my high school yearbook staff. Under the guise of journalism, I enjoyed putting my own photo on as many pages as possible. That was the 'name of the game' and a great motivation for the many long hours it took until we received the long-awaited call of "The yearbooks are here!!!" For the staff that meant a night of unloading boxes and implementing the next day's distribution plan. It was also a cause for great celebration.
Yearbooks Are Still… Continue

I firmly believe that diapers and Pull Ups should not be decorated with pretty princesses, cute cars or happy puppies. They should be emblazoned with screaming fiery demons at the gates of Hell and scary one eyed clowns. Maybe even come with some sort of horrific aroma like rotten garbage or skunk. I think that way the kids will learn to use the toilet pretty quickly. My daughter loves these Pull Ups more than chocolate chip cookies and I've had a hard time of her letting go.

Well sister bloggers, I haven't actually blogged anything for the past couple of days because I've been consumed with "following". There are so many creative people out there that once I get on their site, I want to see what they're doing, what they're writing about, and then I end up clicking out somewhere else. So staying focused on my task was a challenge to say the least. But thankful to say, "I DID IT". I have successfully followed everyone in the follow me club and I'm so so tired. So… Continue

Many of you know my daughters blog, Manic Mother (www.manicmother.com). I'm her proud father.
If you have visited her blog in the past few days you will notice that her 2 year old son Ezra was just diagnosed with ALL (acute lympoblastic leukemia). Needless to say their lives have been turned upside down. Beth is currently at the hospital most of the time as they start the chemo therapy. So is too busy to send out much in the way of communications.
She asked me, as her… Continue

I remember the first day when I started to blogging.I was so exited and also worried a little. Time is running. Now, I've been blogging since Dec, 2007. I'm glad I started and really enjoyed to share my recipes with everyone who reads my blog. I am still getting exited when I meet a new friend or get a new comment on my blog.
And I love this feeling!

Mario Benedetti passed away on May 17. He was 88 years old. He was not well known in the English-speaking world, but in the Spanish-speaking world he was considered one of Latin America's most important 20th-century writers. Benedetti was extremely important to the Uruguayan society, especially because of his history as an exile and as an outspoken critic during the military dictatorship in the 1970s and 1980s.
Many years ago my… Continue

Thanks for all the welcome messages. I've been looking around the site a bit and I'm looking forward to visiting lots of blogs to see what everyone is up to. I haven't posted much because I'm in the process of changing my blog. I'm launching a new Blogger blog, which is under design right now and I am also working on launching a new Wordpress blog on a different topic. My current blog is Wordpress but I think it will be fun to use both platforms.
So, I look forward to being much more… Continue

Over the last month or so Mr. 5-year old has asked me on a few different occasions if I was wearing my pajamas - sometimes in the middle of the day and even once at the mall. I kind of chalked it up to his general lack of fashion sense. After all this is the boy that insists that he will not wear his "new" jeans despite the fact that the old ones are starting to resemble Capri pants (not a good look for boys - even in the Spring), and I have reminded him on more than one occasion that shorts,… Continue

A Cyber Terror Story
Kate has a very disturbing story about a cyber predator that took over her computer. She states in her post:
"He has fixated on me as the enemy, as someone who disseminates information he considers harmful. It's partly because I'm a mom, and for him that is not a comfort..."
She continues, "But what do I do now? As long as the threat was virtual, I felt safe. But now [he] knows my business address, my banking institutions and, most worrisome, my… Continue

How busy are we making ourselves?
This morning I was listening to Bob and Sheri and they had a guest (some NASCAR wife named Kim Burton) and she was speaking of the latest project she is involved with. It is Libbey's campaign called Get Back to the Table. To summarize briefly, they are advocating that we take the time to have dinner with our families at our own dinner table several times a week. Apparently studies have shown that this connection can reduce drug abuse, teen pregnancy,… Continue

Yesterday we went to the ocean and I just couldn't stay out of the water!!
Today we visited a castle in Aquitaine...IT WAS AWESOME well at least what we saw! What I couldn't understand is why we could not take pictures of anything? I mean we paid for it! Any how I think that all in all the castle was a really great place, I just dont think the tourist guides did such a great job bringing 30+ people at a time in each room.
Well it was something to do so I don't wanna… Continue

The Hilarious Book I Did Not Write
by Pam Victor
Catherine Newman wrote the book that I should have written, and I’m trying not to hate her for it. “Waiting for Birdy” is the hilariously neurotic tale of the year she was pregnant with her second child. I’ve passed around the book to every woman I know, saying “If you’re not laughing out loud by the second page, then just put it down,” under my breath adding, “and get a sense of humor.” This author represents Everymother, and… Continue
