I have a new hobby. I find anything and everything FREE online. And I'm telling you, it is literally EVERYWHERE! I love to see the mailman coming up to the house, because he's always bringing me free samples, coupons, etc.

Here are a few little goodies I thought I'd share. They all have very quick and easy forms to fill out and you don't have to take any stupid survey or quiz to get the stuff free.

Danica Who?

If you've seen this year's Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue, you may have seen a girl that looked a little familiar. But, what's she doing in a bathing suit instead of her racing one??

I'm talking about Danica Patrick, who became the first woman to win an Inday car race, with her win at the 2008 Indy Japan 300. The girl can drive! What I find funny is that any male athlete can pose for a health magazine, or endorse any product, and he is just "cashing in". But a girl decides to use her notority to pose in a swimsuit magazine, among others, and there are people out there that judge her. They say, "She needs to make up her mind. Is she a racer or a model?" I say, "Why can't she be both?"

However, I did find it sad that when I 'googled' her name, instead of her racing accomplishments coming up, it was mostly links to her photos. It just goes to show that when it comes to women, it's looks that get you ahead, and that's discouraging. She's worked for years to become the driver that she is and she should receive credit for her efforts. Everything else should just be icing on the cake.

Dad goes to jail because daughter is dumb.

Just when you think you've heard it all, along comes a story like this one. An Ohio man has been put in jail for six months because his nineteen year old daughter cannot pass her G.E.D.

Judge David Kneehouse ordered Brian Gegner to 180 days in jail for contributing to the delinquency of a minor. The charge stemmed from a court order that required him to ensure his daughter got her G.E.D.. Apparently, the girl has been a bundle of fun for this poor guy. She has a 1 1/2 year old daughter. After a history of truancy in school, she decided to drop out at age sixteen And although she's attempted to pass the G.E.D., she can't seem to pass the math portion.

Now, I have a Middle School child and I know you can force them to study, but in no way is that a guarantee they're going to learn anything. Like the saying goes, you can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink.

In most states, a child can drop out of high school on their own free will, at age sixteen. By sixteen, most states consider you mature enough to decide your own educational destiny. So, in light of this fact, why on earth would they put the blame, the responsibility, on the father now?
