    He’s hilarious, and his parents better eat their Wheaties. Their fun has only just begun! LOL

    Boy howdy!

    Everyone else can have a lovely intellectual conversation about the habits and behaviors of different shark species, and I’m going to do hurdles over the waves til I hit the beach.

    The flaw in your logic is that urine on a toilet seat is something to be expected, it is not. When you’re done with the john, there should only be water in the bowl and nothing on the seat. If there is, you’re not ‘done’. Your pee, your poop, it’s your job to deal with that. Finish the job.

    Written by people who don’t camp.

    No one is grilling dessert in the dark by a campfire. Grilling fruit is a specialized technique because if you don’t know what you’re doing, all you’re going to have is smooshed up fruit, stuck to the grill. Hot leaky fruit put between angel food cake slices means you’re probably risking burns. The entire point of the graham cracker is a solid barrier between the hot marshmellow and your hand. Marshmellows aren’t ‘wet’, but pineapple certainly could be.

    And no one is dragging containers of fluff, and what is the lifespan of a container of berries in a cooler? About an hour?

    Advice for fire safety is fine. But acting like you’re in your backyard with a grill and a fully stocked refrigerator is ridiculous for those who’ve spent time in the woods. Whatever you need, you’re going to have to carryt, have to store and in some cases, have to refrigerate.. Aint no one got the time for that and if they do, they’re probably not ‘camping’.

    IF this actually was a joke, then lesson learned.

    Will say to those who are poo pooing about skin sensitivity, that if this isn’t removed very carefully, it’s possible to literally rip off part of the top layers of skin off of a tiny baby. I’m not talking rash, I’m talking enough to bleed.

    Then it’s not a joke at all.

    This Momma watched that video with tears in her eyes.

    Love your children, support them, teach them…The most profound thing that you could ever do for them in their lives is to be there.

    They didn’t learn not to mess with the Diamond District, they learned something much more fundamental that they should’ve learned in childhood: When you yell at someone, don’t be surprised if they yell back at you.

    For far too long, the far left has taken to the streets to yell. It’s about time that someone responded.

    There are also random hunters who can donate to certain local businesses that dress donated deer for free and then donate the meat to local food banks. In other words, you don’t have to be part of a group to do this sort of thing. I don’t hunt but I know that this happens in my community, I can’t imagine that it’s unique. It’s been going on for years.

    Hunters in my state support conservation with their fees and their actions. They cooperate to thin local herds, create habitat for local fauna, and get to enjoy their personal sport in the process. I think that people would be shocked to learn the degree that their own state’s conservation efforts are supported and funded by hunters. Go to your state’s conservation web pages and find out what is happening in this regard and I daresay that you will be surprised.

    This girl just went through a horrific tragedy, the implications of which are going to last her a lifetime, and people are sitting here criticizing who she quoted at a memorial? Talk about not seeing the forest for the trees.

    People cope in different ways. The level of grief that she is going to feel could kill the average adult, yet it’s okay to say ‘hey kid, you’re grieving wrong!’ NO, it’s not.

    There is no wrong way to grieve for something of this magnitude, especially if you’re still a child. Not only orphaned but her entire extended family was literally erased in minutes. If she were angry ,morose, screaming, catatonic, that would also be ‘normal’. But she isn’t. She’s embracing the love that is coming her way and good on her. She’s going to need it because once the media story is over, she’d better have some steadfast support behind her, else she could crumple like spun sugar.

    Btw, if you haven’t read Harry Potter, read it. It’s a morality play. Good versus Evil. Right versus Wrong. Based in a fantasy world. The world is fantasy, some of the abilities of people are entertaining, but the good guys are clearly the good guys and they win in the end. I”m pretty conservative and love the books, as do my kids.

    However, one quote doesn’t an entire value system make. She could have quoted ANYONE and that doesn’t reveal all of her beliefs. Stop the negative knee jerk reactions and save them for the evil crazy person that murde

    Here’s another way: Get them from the NSA.

    “Gee honey, we’re 10 million in debt so why don’t you go make one of them 200,000 dollar BS speeches of your’s so that we can start making payments?”

    That’s exactly what I told my husband last week. The zeros are a lot different, but hey, she’s just like me!

  • [34] May 7, 2014 at 11:59pm

    She is….NINE years old. NINE.

    No excuse for this.

    Hey, here’s an idea: If you have a kid that just wants to eat cookies at lunch, have a conversation with the parents and work WITH them to get the kid to eat better food.

    Be a team and work together. Stop the stupid institutionalization attitude that alienates caregivers and parents and does squat for kids. Yes, I mean, actually use your brain and your social skills. If you don’t have any, git sum.

    Here’s the first clue that the dog wasn’t a problem: The homeowner called the cops and ASKED FOR THEM TO COME. Please come and investigate, someone broke into my home.

    I’d understand the officer’s reaction better if they came onto his property to investigate HIM.

    This entire story is bass ackwards. A cop in Texas shoots a barking dog. In broad daylight. How many dogs are in Texas that bark?

    Bless his heart, that must hurt like crazy. Hope that he doesn’t have any complications. Poor guy!

  • April 17, 2014 at 1:02am

    Honey, I hate to break it to you, but we’re only talking about federal income tax. Add to that State and local income taxes, social security, property taxes, utilities, When we shop, add sales taxes on everything that isn’t food, unless it’s something like soda, so even that has a tax.

    It goes like this: The richest 1% pay 35% of all taxes paid in America, according to this article.

    However, with regards to Romney, he’s RETIRED. He gets no ‘paycheck’. He does have investments.

    So when he was working, he was in the top tax bracket, and paid taxes on his income. And then he invested it, and NOW pays an additional 15% on that money. Money that is now being taxed a SECOND TIME.

    Get it? Good, it’s pretty freaking simple.

    I thought it was hilarious and poignant at the same time.

    I laughed at the end. Why? Because although Daddy is the boisterous one here, our daughter was wise enough to say during a conversation about dating: “I’m more worried about MOM”. And I smiled and said “smart girl”.

    Kudos for what she did, but if she wants to not live with this hanging over her head, she should have moved during that time. Yeah, security is great, but the first step in not being a victim to this guy is to relocate to a place where it would be difficult for him to find her. Dog, yes. Gun, yes. More than one.

    I’ve never understood the ‘he’s the criminal, I’m not leaving’ mindset. That may be entirely true, but there is such a thing as being dead right. I sincerely hope that this guy is too old to try to track her down now.

    Either way if this were me, I’d have been filling the cardboard boxes as he was being transported to prison.

    I’m chafing at the hyperbole used in the original article. Never in my healthcare career have I ever heard the word ‘poisoned’ used towards anyone that wasn’t actually ‘poisoned’. As in ‘this patient ingested non food material that can cause his body to shut down unless it’s treated’.

    As such, my red flag is down on the field with regards to this facility. No offense, and I sincerely hope that Glenn is okay, but I’d want a second opinion from a medical group outside of this one.
