And they wonder why 11 year-olds are having sex...

Could it have to do with this? We let our children watch a clean kids movie, like High School Musical. And then they will want the CD but out by Ashley, which contains this song song about sex, complete with heavy breathing and  a sleazy video and insinuating lyrics.

" One night with you, boy just one night with you,
All the things we could do,
Every day i think of

One night with you
no one else but us two
All our dreams would come true
If we'd just get together

Maybe I can see us moving like that.
Maybe I can see us touching like that.
Baby I can see us kissing like that.
We don't need no more that he said she said.
Maybe I can see us moving like that.
Maybe I can see us touching like that.
Baby I can see us kissing' like that.
We don't need no more that he said she said.

You're gonna like it
You're gonna want it
You're gonna like it
We don't need no more that he said she said.
You're gonna like it
You're gonna want it
You're gonna like it
We don't need no more that he said she said.

Does Ashley or Disney not care at all about their innocent fans? the 5th graders who think Ashley is their role model and want to be "just like her"? Do parents not listen to the music they buy for the kids? Do they not watch the DVD's with them???

What the Bloody Flaming Heck????

Why are 11 year olds having sex? Because we are letting Ashley(and a host of other musicians)  tell them its ok, its fun, its a dream come true.

We as a society are letting the media tell 11 year-olds that sex is the end all be all of being alive.  We are letting the media tell US that our lives should revolve around sex. And if you dont have a sex life you dont have a life!!!!! Why are we letting the media feed us this garbage?

QotD: Halloween Costume Prep

Have you figured out what your (or your kids') Halloween costume will be this year?  What's it going to be?

After months of telling me they want to be last years costumes,which can be seen here.  And which need tune-ups, they changed their minds entirely. They both want to be tractors.Green John Deere Tractors.

Wish me LUCK!! I haven't puzzled out exactly how to make tractors yet.

would you like a blood sample too?

I have a mild cold, and since I usually suffer seasonal allergies during all four seasons, I use psudephedrine when claratin alone doesn't cover it.

I ran out and needed more. I would have bought dayquil for the cold, but they changed the formula because of the circus act that is now required to purchase products with phuedophedrine in them. It is a 30 minute ordeal to buy decongestant. When you have a cold and a sinus headache that 30 minutes is a serious pain in the sinuses.

No matter what size box you buy, you can only buy one box. So, if they are out of everything but the box of 12 brand name sudafed that sells for an arm and a leg you are just hosed you can only buy that 1 box, and then you have to buy more later (like days later). If everyone in your house is sick at once and you run out of all medications? you are just seriously hosed. (I guess you could take the kids' cold medicine)

Next they will want a blood sample and a urine dip when you try to purchase psuedophedrine. Frankly, I think it might take less time.

I have news for the government , anyone who wants to cook meth will find a way around all these safe guards, they always do.  always. All that this accomplishes is making people who actually need medicine crazy. I think the only chance they have of halting this is to actually made inert anhydrous ammonia, and I'm hoping if/when they actually do figure it out  they will dispense with the dog and pony show required to buy decongestant. But I dont believe they will.

QotD: Organ Donation

Are you a registered organ donor?  Why or why not? 
Submitted by jacolily.

  I certainly am. I wont be needing any of it when I'm gone. If my Family wants to keep enough of me to bury and have a funeral with they are welcome to it, but they know I expect them to donate my organs.

I have been wrapping my mind around saying yes to the question if, God forbid it isn't me. I want to say that in my grief  I would still be able to make the decision to donate organs from my husband or children, but I can be quite selfish and I'm a saver and hoarder by nature, I hope I can get past it if I need to.

Its 90F in my kitchen...

And so using the oven is out of the question. Nah, I'm not upset that I can cook or bake.. I dont care much for either.

But I can't clay, and its really getting on my nerves. I just had a birthday and my Mom and Dad got me three books in a polymer clay sculpture series. Cute whimsical things, Dragons, Jungley things and Under the Sea, all incorporate cool claying techniques and wiring in gems and beads.

 I wanted the Jungle one badly, It has an adorable tree frog in it I want to make for my Mother (yep the same one who gave me the book as a gift)  I have the blue clay to make her a blue frog. (A blue frag as in the song " I'm in love with a big Blue frog...") I successfully left the Jungle book at home last weekend so I could show her the cool stuff in the other books without giving her a hint about the frog.... I'm sneaky aren't I?

Her birthday is the 19th, plenty of time to play if the temp would drop. Except, the temperature will not drop and its too hot to clay, Plus, we are having my Brother's Birthday party tomorrow, and My sister in law thought we should just throw Mom's in there too.... Cries.. I so wanted to have this done...

And my hands itch, literally to play with clay and try some of the cool things in my new books. (I have two other books too, bought with birthday money.) There are so many things to try!! When I read the books my hands actually itch with wanting to do something creative.

I had to curb the need somehow... and Thursday a thought flew though my head.. a random chance thought. I have a friend who is due in a few days.. and feels like she could give birth any second.  We were talking about keeping babies warm in carseats with blankies and snowsuits and all that. I remember the car seat cover being so much easier than a snowsuit, and I felt safer too not so much bulk in there than you couldn't find the baby to be sure they would not slip out of the snowsuit and the buckles in an accident. For the second of my boys I made a polar fleece cover, the kind they laid in and you could zip closed around them.  once in the car we could unzip it after the car warmed up.  their legs stayed covered in it and they wore a little jacket on top with a hat and mittens. It was a good setup, no baby needs to have on a snowsuit and three blankets when we only need a normal coat on.  (I'm off track, sorry)

So I offered to make a cover for my friend, I have some lovely periwinkle blue polar fleece, I have had it for awhile and I have only used a little. (I am trying to use and not hoard so much stuff) And I offered the little coat my boys wore, its a cute little navy blue fleece jacket, with a red checkered inside and a cute hat.

 Then I started to think.... I'm so dangerous when I think.... I was thinking a little girl should have a girly little coat, not a navy blue boy's hand me down.  So I took my piece of periwinkle polar fleec to the store and picked out  a cute floral piece of fabric to match it.  And I set my itchy hands to work.....

And I feel much better.....

Much Much better. I hope she likes it!

Sometimes I wonder what these people are like in real life...

I have been clicking around on for the last couple days looking for answers to a few questions. Why did the creepy coach on CSI Miami look so familiar? And the Swimmers mother too? As well as what has happened to Greg Wiggle, and Is Holly Marie Combs doing a current project?

And the answers to these questions are The creepy coach is Brian Krause who played Leo on Charmed.

The swimmers mother was the nurse and ;love interest on Doc with Billy Ray Cyrus.

Greg Wiggle Page has the condition orthostatic intolerance, and this condition is causing problems with his walking, balance, speech and coordination.

Holly is not doing anything IMBD worthy, she is spending time with her kids.

Besides the answers I was looking for I also learned there are college girls in love with Greg Wiggle who buy children's videos to watch him dance and move his hips ....

 Lots of CSI Miami fans think the way Alexx the coroner  is portrayed as compassionate comes off as creepy.... many of those same fans think Caleigh dresses like a hooker and the writers have dumbed her down terribly (I agree).... and plenty of the fans think H is creepy and sexist, and David Caruso over acts.....

Apparently Sam Wiggle, Greg's replacement is a paunchy, ugly, man who can't sing, or dance and is trying to hard to "BE" Greg..... Besides Greg was the only reason to watch the wiggles...

Holly is an idiot who is depriving her fans of her presence, and pictures of her children...

And Mandy Patinkin is a jerk who cant possibly have and good reason for leaving the show he's on...

Are people really this selfish and delusional that they believe once someone is in the entertainment industry they are the fan's  own personal property and any decision they make in the best interest of their own life and family is no good if it doesn't make the fans happy? Am I the only person who is glad to see that Holly is taking time off to be with her kids, and that she has kept their pictures out of the press because they deserve a normal as possible life. Am I the only person Glad to see Greg is taking care of his health, and that the group had Sam to pull up from the ranks to take his place? Am I the only one who doesn't assume Mandy is an overbearing ass his costars cant stand?

Am I?

I kept reading because it was like a train wreck, I couldn't look away... but I know why I dont read, or listen to entertainment news... I dont get it. I dont get the need to know the intimate details of celebrities lives. I can barely keep track of my own life. Do I read the odd interview here and there? yes, and I'm pleased to read someone loves their spouse and kids, I'm a little tickled when they talk about a role  being special, when it was a role I liked watching, and I get a little kick if I read we have something in common.


Chances are.. in 24 hours I wont remember what I read.  I have more pressing problems in my life, like the issue tonight. I have explained 3 times to my son that his homework paper says to trace the sides of the rectangle, and he has done everything but. Whether or not Sam Wiggle has a paunch is not as important as my son learning to slow down and do his homework neatly and correctly.
