The best Christmas specials of all time

I remember when I was a little girl, I couldn't WAIT for the Christmas specials to be broadcast. Back in the 70's you only got ONE CHANCE each year to see them. When they would come on, Mom would whip up some Jiffy Pop Popcorn on the stove, (there were no microwaves) and I'd cozy up in a blanket with much anticipation, and sit with my eyes transfixed on the television, without moving, the entire time the show was on.

Nowadays, kids have it made! They re-run all the good shows several times for an entire month! And if that's not enough for you, you can just pick up the DVD and watch it everyday if you want to. Kid's these days don't know what it's like to wait all year for ONE SHOT at seeing their favorite Christmas show.

Here is my list of the best classic Christmas Specials.

Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer - Without a doubt, this was the one I would look forward to the most. I remember one year, I got in trouble for something and wasn't allowed to watch it. I cried myself to sleep that night.

Frosty The Snowman - Speaking of crying....... when I was a little girl, this one would always get me. When Frosty melts in the greenhouse, I would LOSE IT! Every single time.

How The Grinch Stole Christmas - I love every rhyming word in this
movie! It surprises me when kids these days don't realize it was a cartoon
before it was a movie.

A Charlie Brown Christmas - What's not to love about A Charlie Brown
Christmas? The music is great, the dancing....superb! And the moral of the
story touches the heart.

Miracle On 34th Street - The black & white version was the one I grew up on. Natalie Cole played the little girl, Susan, and I could never understand how she couldn't believe in Santa.

Stampede death on Black Friday

Good deals and an opportunity to save a bundle the day after Thanksgiving, has left one man dead. This story is just so sad to me. A temporary employee of Walmart was pushed to the ground, while a crowd of 2,000+ people rushed to get into the store. Thirty four year old Jdimytai Damour was employed by Walmart as Seasonal Help, which most likely means he was just trying to earn a little extra money during the holidays. And now he is dead.

How can this happen? Are people so caught up in the materialism of the holiday that they forget how to treat other human beings? This poor man was shoved to the ground, and then walked on by everyone that came in contact with him. Not one person stopped to try to help him. Perhaps they too were afraid of being stomped on if they didn't continue walking?

Jdimytai Damour may have been the only death at the scene, but at least three other shoppers also suffered minor injuries. One 28 year old woman, who is eight months pregnant, was also injured, but said to be doing alright.

I can't imagine the horror of being caught under a stampede of people. Here is a video of last year's Black Friday stampede at a different Walmart. WHY are these people allowed to run and shove like this?

Play Simon Says with Santa!

My kids and I love this website. We play on it every year. How it works is you type in something you'd like to see Santa do and then watch him respond. Try typing in things like: eat, kill elf, dance, burp, tackle tree, drink beer.

Use your imagination and try to stump him. It's fun! The site is called: Simon Sez Santa.

I sold out.

Okay.......I've been away for awhile, and in all honesty it is because of money. Blogging is fun, but there's no moula involved. It's just something to pass the time. However, I found a website that actually pays you to write articles, so I've been spending LOTS of time there. Basically, I sold out.

But I am sharing the wealth by telling you about it! See? Some good did come out of it. (wink-wink) If you like to put your thoughts onto paper, and possibly make a little money in the process, check out this site. Associated Content.

Laughter is the best medicine.

No matter what political party you support, I think everyone is pretty unanimous in feeling FURIOUS with the current administration. I was reading somewhere that George W. Bush is thought to be the worst President in U.S. history. Maybe they're right, I don't really know. But one thing I'm certain of is that he is probably one of the least well spoken. He's always flubbing his words, saying things that no one really gets, and making things REAL EASY for nighttime talk show hosts.

I came across this video and thought I'd share it simply because we could all use the laugh. And why not laugh at HIS expense?

Breast milk ice cream?

This is just disgusting! PETA wants Ben & Jerry's to stop getting their milk from cows and begin using human breast milk in their ice cream.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) says doing this would reduce the suffering of cows and give ice cream lovers a healthier product. (Reduce the suffering of cows???? Do they suffer when they’re milked???)

Does PETA think women are just going to hand over their breast milk for free? Just imagine an entire warehouse of women hooked up to breast pumps, sitting there for hours at a time. If that’s not cruel and (very) unusual punishment, I don’t know what is. And not only is that image disturbing, but would also prove to be pretty costly. Think about it PETA.

THANKFULLY the idea was not well received by Ben & Jerry's officials. "We applaud PETA's novel approach to bringing attention to an issue, but we believe a mother's milk is best used for her child," spokesman Sean Greenwood.

I SECOND THAT NOTION! I would hate to have to give up my ice cream, but the second they mix it with human breast milk…..I am going cold turkey! NO WAY in the world am I consuming something that came out of another woman’s breast!

Let's bail out all American Citizens!

I received this in an email & think it is GREAT! Who wouldn't agree to this?


I'm against the $85,000,000,000.00 bailout of AIG. Instead, I'm in favor of giving $85,000,000,000 to America in a "We Deserve It" Dividend.

To make the math simple, let's assume there are 200,000,000 U.S. Citizens 18+.
Our population is about 301,000,000 +/- counting every man, woman and child. So 200,000,000 might be a fair stab at adults 18 and up..

So divide 200 million adults into $85 billion. That equals $425,000.00.
My plan is to give $425,000 to every person 18+ as a "We Deserve It" Dividend. Of course, it would NOT be tax free, so let's assume a tax rate of 30%. Every individual 18+ has to pay $127,500..00 in taxes.

Of course, that sends $25,500,000,000 right back to Uncle Sam. But it means $ 297,500.00 for every adults! A husband and wife has $595,000.00!

What would you do with $297,500.00 to $595,000.00 in your family?
- Pay off your mortgage - housing crisis solved.
- Repay college loans - what a great boost to new grads
- Put away money for college - it'll be there for the future
- Save in a bank - create money to loan to entrepreneurs.
- Buy a new car - create jobs
- Invest in the market - capital drives growth
- Pay for your parent's medical insurance - health care improves
- Enable Deadbeat Dads to come clean - or else

If we're going to re-distribute wealth let's really do it!!! If we're going to do an $85 billion bailout, let's bail out every adult U S Citizen 18+!

Anybody want to buy a virgin?

Having a hard time deciding what to give that special guy in your life? How about a virgin? They've got them up for bid at the Moonlight Bunny Ranch in Carson City, Nevada.

Actually, it's just one virgin. But she is up for bid! Meet 21 year old Natalie Dylan (not her real name). She's looks so shy, doesn't she? I remember I used to pose like this all the time when I was a virgin........NOT!

She has decided to put her virginity up for bid to the highest bidder. Yep, she is giving it up to someone she doesn't even know, just as long as they've got the money and meet her own specific requirements, which were not disclosed.

Ironically enough, Natalie Dylan will use the money to get her Master's Degree in Psychology so she can practice Family Psychology. At least the money will go to something worthwhile, right?

My question is, how do we know she's really a virgin? If I can peel the cobwebs in my memory back, and reach deep into my past, I think I can still remember being a virgin. And I'm going waaaaaayyyyy back here people, but if I remember correctly, I was pretty nervous giving it up to someone I knew and trusted. I can't imagine trusting someone I didn't even know to not hurt me during the process. Not to mention the emotion end of it.

If you'd like to find out more, just go to:

After you do, come back and tell me if you're placing your bid!

Death By Smoking Ban

It's a sad fact. While banning smoking from public places does promote a healthier environment, it has also put many people in danger. Not just in American, but worldwide. You could call it "Death By Smoking Ban."

Smokers have really been portrayed as "the bad guys". And sadly, there are a select few out there that are just reinforcing that image by becoming violent.

In 2007, former British heavyweight boxing champion James Oyebola was shot in the neck in a London club after he asked a group of men to stop smoking. Smokers killed a man because they were asked to quit smoking.

In 2003 a New York bouncer was stabbed to death while trying to enforce the city wide ban at the club he worked in. Stabbed by smokers while trying to do his job.

And if you "google" this subject yourself, you'll find other examples of the violence I'm talking about. Of course, not all smokers are bad people. My husband is a smoker for goodness sake! What people seem to forget is that it is an addiction. The smokers out there are desperately addicted to the very thing that's slowly killing them. And some will even kill for the right to do it.

Insane cakes

Sometimes people with imagination and creativity get a little dangerous! Check out these cakes I found online. What kind of twisted mind came up with this stuff? I mean seriously, on what occasion is a "Kitty Litter Box" cake needed?

And what Mother To Be wouldn't want to have this precious cake at her baby shower?

And how could you pass up a piece of the ever popular "Murder Scene" cake? Slice into a piece of THIS!

And why not eat a piece of this cake designed to look like the human digestive system. Mmm.......

And I saved the best for last. COULD YOU EAT A PIECE OF THIS THING???? I don't think so!

Become a virgin again!

Get this. Science has wasted yet another resource by actually making it possible to re-virginize yourself! Yes, that's right! A middle aged woman can go get "hymenoplasty" - an expensive and often painful type of surgery that "reattaches" the hymen after it's been stretched open, in order to make it appear that the woman has never had vaginal intercourse.

GET THE HELL OUT OF HERE! How friggin stupid is this? I ask you, WHY would anyone want this procedure done? I don't get it. The cost for this surgery STARTS at $ 4,000.00. STARTS at $ 4,000.00. Many women say they do it "for their husbands". COME ON! I mean, seriously, if he's been having sex with the same woman for 20 - 25 years, tightening up the crotch a little can only add so much excitement. It's still the same woman. Just a little tighter. And, by the way, if she wants to give him something a little tighter to enjoy, all she has to do is BEND OVER! Problem solved AND you save yourself quite a bit of money and pain.

PLEASE! Use the science to solve Cancer, or Aids, or help figure out why so many babies are born with life threatening diseases! Use the science to cure M.S. or Parkinsons. STOP using it for stupid stuff like tightening up crotches!!!!

In the end, the punishment is DEATH.

Susan Atkins is about to die, and I think it's fitting that it will be in prison. How ironic that her original sentence was the Death Penalty and now, many years later, that is what she'll be receiving.
But the State of California wont be killing her. Her own body is.
Susan Atkins, as most of you are aware, is one of the cold blooded killers from the Manson Family. In 1969 she took part in the brutal murder of Sharon Tate, Jay Sebring, Abigail Folger, Voyteck Frykowski and Steve Parent. Although Sharon Tate was 8 1/2 months pregnant and begged for the life of her child, Susan Atkins stabbed her to death.

Now that Susan Atkins is dying of brain cancer, she's asking for compassionate release. To be allowed to die among her family. Maybe she feels that her fragile state should give her the right to be free. But she has to remember that Sharon Tate's fragile state didn't offer her any compassion.

Her husband, James Whitehouse, says there is no reason to keep her incarcerated, as her illness has left her so that she cannot even sit up on her own. Her doctors predict she only has a few months left to live.
While her condition is sad, I think that justice has been served.

The Baby Bounce video

This video I'm about to post breaks my heart and infuriates me, all at the same time. Have you heard about the sixteen year old boy who posted a video on youtube that shows him "making a baby fly"? It's heartwrenching to watch. He places an eight month old baby, who was in his care, on an inflatable pillow and then pushes weight down on the pillow that catapults the child a few feet away. He does this several times, and right next to a brick fireplace!!

I am happy to say that one of his teachers saw the video and reported him! Now he has been arrested and charged with Cruelty To A Child in both the 1st and 3rd degree. He is being held in a detention center. Luckily (and amazingly) the child wasn't injured.

What do you think the appropriate punishment would be for the teen? Watch the video and let us know.

Dust Bunnies Attack!

I am basically self taught on all aspects of the computer. Trust me, that’s not saying much as I really just know the basics, but still. I remember close to a year after getting my computer, it was running extremely slow. My brother asked me how long it had been since I deleted cookies. “Say what?” I asked with a puzzled look on my face. Needless to say the answer was NEVER. But after watching him, I caught on quickly and make sure my cookies are deleted regularly now.

So when my computer started hissing at me last week, I didn’t know what it meant. But I knew it wasn’t good. I hoped it would just go away if I ignored it. Instead, it grew louder and the thing began shaking and vibrating. It scared me.

After googling “computer hissing”, I realized the problem was problaby dust in my fans inside the computer. “No problem,” I thought. I pulled out my Hoover vacuum and sucked out the dirt I could see through the air vents on the outside of the computer. There was a lot of it, but I managed to get it all. I thought my problem was solved. I was wrong.

The hissing continued. And the motor sounded like an airplane gearing up for a long flight. I realized getting the dust off the outside wasn’t enough. I was going to have to go in. I had no idea what to do.

I armed myself with my husband’s smallest screwdrivers, a flashlight, the Hoover vacuum, and paper towels. I was surprised how easily I was able to get the cover off the computer, the screws came right out and I placed them safely in a container so I wouldn’t lose any.

When I lifted that cover off the base, I gasped in shock. It looked like Dust-Bunny-Palooza had taken place at the bottom of my hard drive. Literally, there were handfuls, upon handfuls, of dust and hair particles. Five years worth of buildup. I couldn’t believe my eyes! NO WONDER MY COMPUTER WAS HISSING! It was struggling for air! Struggling for it’s mere existence, and it knew that it’s owner , me, was NEVER going to help it if it didn’t resort to extreme measures! It was literally begging for help.

It took me close to twenty minutes to gather all the dust from the bottom, the sides, off the wires, away from the fans, and vacuumed out of the smallest crevices. But I did it! And I did it without the help of anyone. I was proud of myself.

But then I found that putting the computer back together proved to be a little more complicated. I couldn’t get the sides pushed in enough to the base, and when I did, I couldn’t get the screws all the way in. And I had leftover screws. I couldn’t understand how I had screws leftover! I taken such precautions to keep them safe, and now I didn’t know what to do with them.
After playing around awhile, I still had one screw leftover but felt I had it on snug enough to work. I replugged in all the wires to the correct holes (most were color coordinated for my convenience) and pushed the tower back into position. And then (I kid you not) the side of the computer fell off and landed on the floor!!! Guess that one little screw mattered after all. SIGH.

In the end, I got it all fixed and guess what? No more hissing! No more shaking or vibrating either! Just a smooth running computer that is now completely DUST FREE and I can say I did it myself. Yeah me!

I wish that I had the litigious personality that some people seem to have. They will sue over ANYTHING, no matter what personal embarrasment it may cause them, just as long as there is a chance they'll rake in some moula.

I mean, if I was injured by the g-string I was putting on, I would NEVER think "LAWSUIT!" I'd just quietly put away the garment, tend to my injury, and slink quietly away feeling stupid for having been injured while putting on a thong! But not everyone is like me. Macrida Patterson is definately not like me.
Macrida is a 52 year old woman (YES, 52!!!!) and she is alleging that while attempting to put on a Victoria's Secret thong, a decorative metallic piece flew off the garment and struck her in the eye, causing injuries. She alleges that she was hurt last May by a "design problem" that caused the decorative piece to come loose and strike her in the eye, causing damage to her cornea. She missed a few days of work, and the injury will be "affecting her the rest of her life."

What is a 52 year old woman doing trying to wear a g-string anyway? I say, "LESSON LEARNED GRANNY! Step away from the thongs, and decorative panties, and you wont be hurt!"
