I first heard about the “Cinnamon Challenge” this morning via NBC’s Today Show. It’s apparently the new trend among teenagers whose videos are posted all over the internet. The videos show teenagers taking a spoonful of powdered cinnamon which then makes them gag, spits, coughs, to the point of choking. You’ve got to be kidding me.
Hey numbnuts, here’s a challenge for you. Grab a book and read in the corner.
I don’t even know how to articulately convey my sadness about the tragedy in Connecticut that happened today. All I know is that my family wants to give everyone in Connecticut our love, thoughts, and prayers. Our hearts are with you.
Now that Chick-Fil-A has bravely put it out there which side they are on in regards to gay marriage, are you still going to patronize their products?
“Guilty as charged,” Cathy said when asked about his company’s support of the traditional family unit as opposed to gay marriage.
“We are very much supportive of the family – the biblical definition of the family unit. We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that,” Cathy is quoted as saying. (source)
While I don’t personally agree with Chick-Fil-A’s stance the fact of the matter is, it is their right have it the same it is my right to have mine. I don’t know why it should be a surprise to anyone at this point, really. Chick-Fil-A is closed every Sunday.
My children loves going to Chick-Fil-A on the few times we’d go. It’s not an establishment we frequent that often. You can actually count in one hand how many times we’d go there in a year. Therefore it’s not that serious of a problem for us if we don’t ever go there anymore. This is my family’s prerogative. But even with the backlash that Chick-Fil-A is getting right now for pretty much spelling it out where they stand I will give them respect for saying and believing it so.
We will most definitely eat more chicken but I will be cooking them myself in my own kitchen just as I have always done. Chick-Fil-A can and will continue being against gay marriage, and cater to the people who believes the same way or to people who really couldn’t care less one way or another. Yah know, why can’t we all just respect each other’s beliefs without spouting hate and all that drama?
I turned on the TODAY Show as soon as I got up this morning coz I was so excited to find out where Matt Lauer was doing his 2nd day of Where In The World Is Matt Lauer? thing. Then Ann Curry announced that The Duggar family are there to make an announcement. My husband who was in front of the TV while ironing his work uniform predicted that it’s either they’re having another child or a grandchild.
And the winner is, Momma Duggar is having her 20th child. I don’t know about other people who were watching this morning but I think Ann Curry mustered every patience in her body and logic in her brain just to stay professional and not be judgmental although you could sense amazement from her because the woman in front of her doesn’t think 19 kids plus grandchildren are not enough. Ann asked the young kids if they’re excited about the new baby and of course they said they are. You don’t really expect them to say NO on national TV in front of their parents, right?
I don’t mean to be judgmental but geez, there has to be a point sometime in the Duggar’s life when someone will say, “Maybe we should stop having children coz we’ve used all of the possible names that starts with letter J.” I couldn’t think of MAJOR reasons why they should stop at all. [/SARCASM]
Thankfully, we don’t have it bad around here. It’s rainy and windy but we’ve still got electric power so we’re good. I saw a few fallen trees when we were driving but not that bad really. *knock on wood*
Here’s my husband being a good citizen by dragging branches out of the way to avoid any road accidents. We don’t even live around this area but that’s how my husband is.
I sure hope so, anyway. President Barrack Obama and the White House decided to take time to show President Obama’s birth certificate and have a press conference to point out how ridiculous and such a waste of time that they actually have to do it just to pretty much shut Mr. Trump up and whomever else is questioning Obama’s citizenship.
While I sit here in front of my monitor trying to fight that annual minor depression which occurs 2-3 days before any of my children celebrate their birthdays, I found a profound and heartfelt video about Mothers from Dooce.com. This is actually a project from Supermodel Christy Turlington Burns focusing on at-risk pregnancies in different parts of the world.
I am just so disgusted at this Teenage Mom Jayla Hamm and boyfriend Corde Honea who tortured their 22 month old boy by duct taping him into the wall and then took pictures of him. They also duct taped his sippy cup into the wall while he tried so hard to reach for it. There are other pictures that I just can’t post here. Just Google and I’m sure links for the picture will pop up. It’s heartbreaking just looking at him trying to reach for his cup. The rest of the pictures are even more heartbreaking.
The Mom and boyfriend were supposedly high on drugs . The Mother got 10 days in jail and 2 years probation while the boyfriend got 34 to 60 months. WTF? Animal abusers get more than that. I can’t even think of what I’ll do first to that Mother if I see her. People like her and her boyfriend are a waste of earth’s space and resources. I wish Nebraska would protect that child coz it’s obvious that his own Mother can’t. Most everyone can have babies, but not everyone can be MOTHERS.
