What's the news that gets to you.

All kinds of different stories making the news these days. Away from the political noise of "he said, she said" stuff, which is good theatrics, but I wish they would get something done about coming to a common goal of making this world a better place to live. Anyway..

I see, Toys For Us is shutting down. The blame is being put on Wal-Mart and Amazon. I didn't realize Toys For Us had been around 70 years. I wonder where the idea for Toys For Us came from. there were a lot of new ideas put into action after World War II. Maybe, Toys For Us was one of them. As a parent you, like your children grow out of the store. Seems like they couldn't get the last couple of generations to take their children there and make purchases.

Did you hear about the dog that wound up in Japan, instead of Kansas City? Seems an airline passenger was traveling. She got to K.C., but her dog wound up in Japan, while another dog...yup you guessed it, was supposed to go to Japan and wound up in Kansas City. There's a canine caper for you!

Then there's the battle for television viewers between The Voice, on NBC and American Idol, now on ABC. The Voice got the jump on Idol, by starting about six weeks ago. Idol has made some changes, instead of four celebrity judges, they are down to three. We'll see how all that turns out. It ultimately comes down to who is the aspiring singer that wins the hearts and votes of television viewers.

What grabs you for news? Cable TV, Internet, or the National Enquirer?

Raising Children

Now this is a topic, I don't think there is a right way, or a wrong way. If you have just one child to raise or multiples, you would raise them somewhat differently. If the ages are spread a part, you again may raise them differently. Certainly if one child has special needs, you would raise them differently.
Then again, instilling basic fundamental steps is key.

Take the newly crowned Masters champion, Patrick Reed. He had his struggles growing up, like any child. Now let's fast-forward to his career as a professional golfer. Somewhere along the way he met his wife, who Mom & Dad dis not approve of. Reed playing the grandest golf tournament of all in his home state of Georgia had his wife by his side. His parents, no where to be seen. You see he has barred them from any tournament he plays.

This must be his way of "getting back" to the two who created him, brought him into this world. They raised him. Something went terribly wrong along the way.

Truth is, someda…

Are you a fubber?

Picked up on a new word today, FUBBER. Are you a fubber? What is fubber? Can I buy it at Wal-Mart, or Casey's? Is it available on Amazon? The answer to all those questions is hopefully, NO>

A fubber is a person. I'm sure you know one, are married to one, or work with one, or both. To be a FUBBER you are active scanning your cellphone, while in a conversation. As a person talks to you, you scroll through your messages or Facebook.

This denies the attention the person you're with deserves. It's rude, careless, and obnoxious.

Conclusion, don't be a FUBBER.  If someone is being a fubber to you, call them out on it. If what you're saying is important, grab the phone and keep it, until the conversation has concluded.

There's your tip of the day.
