A Parenting Confrontation on the Playground

  Wow, that video ending should have been expected, but it caught me totally off guard. Point made! Parents will be parents. We all have our own parenting style.

“Onside Kick” to be Renamed “Bostick Bumble”

  Personally, I wanted the Green Bay Packers to walk away with this year’s NFC Championship. So did Brandon Bostick. He forgot for a moment, the true purpose of the onside kick, until the football pretty much hit him in the head, that is. It wasn’t pretty. It’s doubtful that he’ll ever forget his experience. It was a costly mistake. Since I don’t claim to be a reporter or journalist, I’ll refer...

Cell Phone, Toilet, Rice, Worm, and Bette Midler

  Undeniably a Bette Midler classic. The first time she dunked her cell phone in the toilet and tossed it into some rice, only the desired outcome was realized. Dunking it again should be no cause for alarm either, except… Newest on IPhone saga: so I stuck it overnight in this rice I bought and next morning a tiny worm crawled out of the headphone opening! — Bette Midler (@BetteMidler) January 14, 2015 one might...
