2010 Vancouver Olympic Opening Ceremonies: Visually Stunning But Vocally Annoying

Did you all watch the Opening Ceremonies last night? I thought they were visually stunning. The whales that looked like they were swimming across the stage, the giant bear, the “snow”, the wheat fields….all of it was amazing. What I did not find appealing was the musical acts. Not that I don’t like some of […]

Your Daughter Can’t Attend School Today, She Has Boogers

That is what I was told last Thursday when I took The Diva to school. And again the next morning. WTF?? OK, a little backstory… The Diva started off with a cold last Friday, the 15th –stuffy nose, drippy nose, sore throat. She stayed at school that day and I was advised to keep her […]

Uh, This Is California, Not Kansas

Good news: We are finally getting the rain we so desperately need. And our local mountains get lots of  real snow. Bad news: It’s an El Nino year. That means rain, rain and more rain. It also means flooding and mudslides…both of which are made 100 times worse because we are brush fire central and […]

Why Are Children Today So Disrespectful?
