Why does 50 and sunny feel so warm in the spring and so chilly in the fall?

The new game show on NBC called "Minute to Win it" looks like an hour of every bad bridal and baby shower game ever invented - only thing it lacks are dish towels for prizes...

I don't look at game shows, they always make me feel dumb.  So what. if I really am dumb, I don't want to know it.

Why is a caregivers work never done?  Is it because we don't get up early enough?

I started to complain and then deleted my post.  I can't believe how lucky I am to have 3 happy, healthy good kids.  I have no right to complain. I love them sooooooo much! I am truly blessed.

Just sent some money to my daughter who is in Puerto Rico awaiting the birth of her second son (due in a month or so).   She had a hard time finding a Western Union, and ended up walking in a place she did not know and could not find anyone to tell her where it was.  She made me stay online because she was a bit apprehensive.  Anyway, she just told me that she got the money.  I told her please get a taxi back to the hotel.
I still remember how that man killed a pregnant woman who was jogging in Puerto Rico.

I think genius is the ability to understand the complicated as if it was simple.  Making the complicated seem simple is the mark of a good teacher, not necessarily the sign of true genius.   :twocents;

Random "karma's a *itch" thought for the day...

Ernesto Miranda was arrested for kidnapping and raping a teenage girl.  He confessed after two hours in interrogation, but he had not been informed of his rights.  He was found guilty at a trial that used his confession as evidence.  His appeal went all the way to the Supreme Court, which tossed his confession.  The resulting legal requirement that cops tell you your rights when you are arrested is now named after him - the Miranda warning that we all know from countless TV shows.  "You have the right to remain silent......"
Ernesto was retried on the kidnapping and rape charges, and still found guilty, even without the confession.  He served his sentence and was released.  He was killed not long after in a bar fight.  Cops arrested the only likely suspect.  They had to release him without charges because they had insufficient evidence and no confession.  Why was that?  Because the suspect was read his Miranda warning and chose to remain silent.....

Karma.

2 random thoughts for the day....

Why don't Dollar Stores sell Lotto tickets?

And in honor of St Pat's Day -
          My Irish great-grandfather Frank McNulty seduced my then-15 year old great-grandmother Leona, a penniless orphan who was working for little more than room and board at the Detroit boarding house G-gramps was staying at.  As soon as G-gram told him she was pregnant, he split town and changed his name.  My mom tracked 16 generations worth of family tree.  The only thing we know for sure about G-gramps is he not only didn't take care of G-gram and her daughter, but he never contacted his wife and kids back in the old country again either!  So why is it that my grandmother was the one everyone called a bas***d?    ;D

My husband is snoring.

I'm off to have some toast.

It's late.

There's a rerun of Piers Morgan interviewing Netanyahu on TV.

Good night!

How come the clouds come in evening and disappears mid-morning with one drop of rain.
Haven't had any significant amount of rain since September. Anyone know of any charms, potions or chants to bring the rains.
