Well, good luck with that. LOL
I am glad I am not raising kids today.
First, let me say how much I enjoyed your opening post today! Next, after reading through your exchanges about today’s musical performances.....LadyGaGa and Kei$ha are NOTHING compared to Adam Lambert - if you didn’t watch the AMA’s in November - or even if you did, by the time it was aired in California, they had censored the worst part of his pornographic performance. Could. Not. Believe. My. Eyes! In my time zone, it was LIVE and UNCUT. Sick, not only because it was on network TV, but it was also before 10PM, and many kids are still up at that time, even on a school night.
P.S. Is ANYBODY HERE BESIDES ‘US’?!
I don't know how parents today are dealing with what their kids are seeing/hearing in the entertainment medias. I just don't know.
LOL. I don't think so! I finally am able to be here for awhile and there is no one here but the three of us. :-(
So, I am going to go have lunch. :-)
I liked Anoop and Danny that year, and after it was between Kris Allen and Adam, I was so hoping for Kris to win.
Who do you like this year on AI?
And do you think Ellen adds anything at all to the panel? And what is up with Kara and Simon? She keeps leaning into him....she might as well just go ahead and sit on his lap. LOL.
Crystal Bowerhouse! I liked Lilly and hated to see she didn’t make the Top 12. For the guys, I like Aaron and Lee, and Casey somewhat. How about you?
As for Ellen, I just like her, period! I do not like Kara and cannot STAND Simon! I didn’t like Kara last year, and this year, she thinks she’s the greatest thing since Simon. LOL

Dear Friends, I have a relative (grand-daughter of my Aunt whom you have prayed for and she is doing wonderfully now) who is embarking on an epic and dangerous journey today March 18th. She will be gone on this journey until March 28th.
Her name is Sydney (I will give her name to put better focus on the prayers) and she is 17 and attends Christian school. She and a few of her peers, and many adults from her church community are going on a mission to Uganda.
I am very concerned for her safety and the safety of all who are going.
I’ve been told it is safe where they are going to do their missionary work, but I would like to cover them in prayer to assure them safe passage to what I believe is one of the most dangerous places in the world.
Many thanks in advance for your kind help as always, TCP
“Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may able to stand against the wiles of the Devil. And take the helmet of salvation and the sword of The Spirit, which is the Word of God.”
Godspeed sweet Sydney
Hate to have to leave but we have an appointment to talk to the staff at the Nursing and Rehab center where JK's mom is residing. I am dreading this. We have several issues to hash out with them and I am not looking forward to this meeting at all. It's a beautiful, nine million dollar, stare-of-the-art facility that just opened last autumn, but they have some serious employee problems. I will be very happy when my MIL completes her physical therapy and we can move her back to her room at Assisted Living. It can't happen too soon for us!
Slowest day ever.
Offering prayers for Sydney and the others as they embark on this mission.
Father, please hold them close and protect them as they journey to Uganda to spread your word. Amen.
Please Mark Every Step your Lambs will Take, Loving Lord. May their Path be Made Smooth, and their Work be Blessed from On High. Thank you for Sidney and her Friends, Caring God. May they be Blessed Beyond Measure, even More than we can Ask or Think.
We Love You, Dear Father our King, as we Pray in our Jesus' Name, amen.
Sorry I couldn't be with you all today, just had so much to do here at home and some errands to run and hair appt. My niece will be in from Mississippi with her hubby and son and I had some extra cleaning to do, even though I don't feel like it! They are coming in for the big Nascar race. They have never been to one before. We have so many people coming into our town for our 2 big races each year, that it makes it hard to get out and go anywhere. But we love them to come as it brings much needed revenue into our city!!
They will be spending most of their time at my son's but will be here one day and night so I will have to prepare for that. I must be really getting old as I don't like to have company the way I used to. I wanna go somewhere and let somebody wait on me a while.....LOL! Know what I mean?
I read most of your all's posts and agree with almost all you said. I haven't enjoyed Idol as much this year as in the past. I did tune in last night and they have some really good contestants. In the past, if I missed an episode, I would go crazy. But as they say "Ive lost that old feeling."
I miss you all when I don't have time to get on and post and chat. But we all have to take breaks at times. 'Stuff happens'...
Amen to your prayer for Sydney and her friends.
Great Dwight Yoakam video. Thanks.
Sincere prayers for Sydney and the other Christian friends who are beginning this journey to Uganda in Your name, dear God. Be with them and protect them. We ask these things in Thy name. AMEN.
Thank you for your lovely prayer, Kitty!
Beautiful prayer Kitty! Brought tears to my eyes. Thank you.
Hi there, I have to chime in on the American Idol topic. I thought that this week, Aaron’s rendition of “Angie” was beautiful.
I really would like Crystal to give up the dreadlocks. I just can’t get past the “ick factor” on dreads.
The gal who left the show this week, I found to be interesting and had a style all her own. I did not expect her to go this week.
Hi Jaycee. I’ve been missing you, girl! And I am envious of your NASCAR race. We have tickets to the Infineon race in Sonoma in June. I can’t wait. We take the 5th wheel and meet our son and his family and make a three day weekend out of it. I don’t care for NASCAR all the much the rest of the year, but I am a HUGE fan when the June Infineon race comes around. Your niece and family are going to have a great time, I am sure of it. Are you going to the race?
Glad you enjoyed it, Dave. He is one of the few Country Western singers that I really like.
LOL. I know what you mean! My issue isn't the dreads, it's the nose stud. That's a major "ick factor" for me.
Glad to have you chiming in. Aaron did do a good job on Angie, but overall I am not terribly impressed with the talent this year. I like Casey and I like Crystal, and I think the two of them are going to go through to the end, but....then again, I could be wrong.
Thanks for sharing. Prayers for Sydney. May she have a safe trip, may she accomplish her goal and may she grow because of her travels
That is just the most precious lab puppy ever!
I am adding my prayers to the others here for Sydney and the others in her group as they embark on their journey and mission.
Hi Jaycee, That basket is great. So spring like! And of course the puppy is adorable. Busy day today, but a good one. Hope you had a good day, as well!
Thank you, and her grandma agrees that Syd will certainly have a different view of the world after such a journey. She saw London today and then it was on to Uganda. I’ll be glad when she is back home.
I am also not very enthused about this year’s line-up. The year that Taylor won, I picked him right from the start in the auditions. There was something about him. Last year I really liked Allison and was sorry to see her go. I only started watching after Carrie won, and I saw that finale show,heard her sing,and it was obvious that the show had merit. So I’ve watched ever since and really enjoy it for the plain old entertainment value and a break from the news of the day. I really don’t have a favorite this time.
No, I'm not going. My sons used to always go and one of them still buys his tickets every year. If he can't go, he sells them. My niece and family will be using his tickets this year. Of course, they will pay for them. Those things cost an arm and a leg.
He will be with his brother in law at his campground, where they rent out spaces for the motor homes. They also rent out trailers if someone needs one. I enjoy all the big motor homes, trailers, 5th wheels, etc. and of course the race drivers, with their big rigs, etc. coming into our city. We run over at the seams but its exciting. Its like a big fun circus.
Hope all is well with you and your family, Lori.
Thanks Lori, isn’t he sweet? Hope Billie sees that one!
Thank you, tiapam! Seems every day turns out to be a busy one anymore, doesn’t it?
Very nice graphic and lyrics to the song by Dwight Yoakam. Thank you. I haven’t heard him sing in years.
Lovely flowers, Meg! Busy here today also, but at least the weather was nice. Yes, yesterday was interesting with ALL the St. Patrick Day post. Hope you have a good evening!!!
Thank you so much! Glad you liked it!
Amen - thanks for the ping and for that tremendous prayer! Joined it! Blessings to you!
Prayers sent for those who go to the mission fields
I know. I have a hard time getting here. I do find it easier sometimes to keep in touch with friends and family on Facebook, but sometimes I am not able to get there either. My MIL is not doing well, she's been in and out of the hospital four times since the first of the year. She is currently in a Nursing and Rehab center with the goal of returning her to Assisted Living as soon as she regains her strength. Each time she has to go into the hospital, it takes so much out of her.
We will be tuned into the race at Bristol this weekend. JK rarely misses any of the NASCAR races.
Hi tiapam. Thanks for the compliments on my graphic today. I really like Dwight Yoakam, even though I am not a big Country Western fan. I would love to go to one of his concerts.
You asked me if I was going to go to the races? Its so much more comfortable on my couch and I get to see all the close-ups, etc....don’t have to sit in the hot sun or the pouring rain....LOL! And I sure don’t have to fight the traffic forever! I’ll take home anytime!
I’m going to bed....its going on 12 here in Tennessee. Nite-nite!
Thank you, and I'm Keeping Sydney and her Friends in my Thoughts and Prayers.
Amy, Thank you for your Sweet Post Last Night, and Jaycee, I Love your #1767; it's Precious!
Sending Hugs and Wishes for a Good Night to All Friends.
(((((Sweet Dreams, and God Bless)))))
Prayers for her safe and successful mission.
