The weather is always weird here. Always has been. The saying is "If you don't like the weather just wait a few minutes"... All of my life here. :)

Mr. T may be visiting Ireland next spring. We'll see.

He needs to go and take you also. Its beautiful in the country side and sea side.

Well, no one's tongue fell off so it couldn't have been too bad.

TO ALL THE KIDS WHO SURVIVED the 1930's 40's, 50's, 60's and 70’s!!


First, we survived being born to mothers who smoked and/or drank while they were pregnant.


They took aspirin, ate blue cheese dressing, and tuna from a can.


Then after that trauma, we were put to sleep on our tummies in baby cribs covered with bright colored lead-based paints.


We had no childproof lids on medicine bottles, doors or cabinets and when we rode our bikes, we had no helmets, not to mention, the risks we took hitchhiking.


As infants & children, we would ride in cars with no car seats, booster seats, seat belts or air bags. Riding in the back of a pick up on a warm day was always a special treat.


We drank water from the garden hose and NOT from a bottle. We shared one soft drink with four friends, from one bottle and NO ONE actually died from this.


We ate cupcakes, white bread and real butter and drank Kool-Aid made with sugar, but we weren't overweight because. WE WERE ALWAYS OUTSIDE PLAYING!


We would leave home in the morning and play all day, as long as we were back when the streetlights came on.
No one was able to reach us all day.


And we were OK.


We would spend hours building our go-carts out of scraps and then ride down the hill, only to find out we forgot the brakes. After running into the bushes a few times, we learned to solve the problem.


We did not have Play-stations, Nintendo's, X-boxes, no video games at all, no 150 channels on cable, no video movies or DVD's, no surround-sound, CD's or I-pods, no cell phones!, no personal computers , no Internet or chat rooms.......


We fell out of trees, got cut, broke bones and teeth and there were no lawsuits from these accidents.


We ate worms and mud pies made from dirt, and the worms did not live in us forever.


We were given BB guns for our 10th birthdays, made up games with sticks and tennis balls and, although we were told it would happen, we did not put out very many eyes.


We rode bikes or walked to a friend's house and knocked on the door or rang the bell, or just walked in and talked to them!


Little League had tryouts and not everyone made the team. Those who didn't had to learn to deal with disappointment. Imagine that!!


The idea of a parent bailing us out if we broke the law was unheard of. They actually sided with the law!


These generations have produced some of the best risk-takers, problem solvers and inventors ever!


The past 50 years have been an explosion of innovation and new ideas.


We had freedom, failure, success and responsibility, and we learned


HOW TO DEAL WITH IT ALL!


If YOU, are one of them, CONGRATULATIONS!


The quote of the month is by Jay Leno:
"With hurricanes, tornados, fires out of control, mud slides, flooding, severe thunderstorms tearing up the country from one end to another, and with the threat of bird flu and terrorist attacks,” Are we sure this is a good time to take God out of the Pledge of Allegiance?"

*************************

Oddly enough, we have that same saying here. :)

Mr. T will be going on a golfing vacation with his friends, so I'll be here with the pups, and we will be communicating with facetime. It'll be all right. I'm just as happy going bass fishing in Maine. :)

One of these days, though..

Got several that praise survivors of earlier decade. That one’s the best.

It describes those eras so well that it brings back fond memories.

Did you see the movie, “Edgar?” It was pretty accurate for what it covered and agreed with a bio of him I read years ago.

It has been said that everyone who goes into politics is sociopathic and he was no different.

well for the great unwashed society, they hardly know what fascism even is.

a few have been vouchsafed a divine view and realize that only salvation on a God scale can do anything for humanity. a brouhaha by the cognoscenti on fascism will remain a brouhaha by the cognoscenti on fascism. it will not bring a cure!
