In The Potting Shed

I don’t have the opportunity to watch any of the Martha Stewart shows on television because of my work schedule, but I do enjoy watching clips from her shows on You Tube. This clip is of her with Conan in the potting shed, making topiaries from some plants that Conan claims he found in his back yard. It’s refreshing to see that Martha has a great sense of humor after all that she has been through! Very amusing!

I just heard on the radio that she has signed up with Match.com and is looking for a partner. I wish her luck!

Toddlers and Tiaras Still On The Air

Have you ever watched the TV show called Toddlers and Tiaras?  I have to tell you that I find it deeply disturbing. These mothers are truly disturbed people trying to live their dream through their daughters. Mothers and Fathers alike. They are so hard on the children, making sure they don’t gain too much weight, making them adhere to a strict routine. It didn’t long for the media to start paying attention and the feeding frenzy began. All kinds of groups started protesting and demanding that this show be removed and actions started to stop this long time beauty pageant tradition for girls this young. My question is “What age is acceptable to start this process?”

I think they should just let the little girls be little girls. They are making them grow up way too fast. And some of the coaches!!! I don’t think that child beauty pageants should be against the law, but I really think that someone needs to step in and take control of the situation. This show has been on for several years now and with all the fuss that it has caused I find it hard to believe that you can still find it on the air.

Bottoms Up!

My mother and I spent some time cleaning out one of the closets in the family room downstairs. It was nice to spend some quite, quality time with her, usually there are other people around or we are on the road driving somewhere, usually a doctors appointment, or waiting in a waiting room somewhere.

Her father came from a large family that was blessed with so many types of musical talents and my mother managed to save a lot of memorabilia from back in the glory days that we took some time to look at and talk about. I always learn so much from her during times like this. I have always loved to look at old pictures and listen to stories about all of their adventures, I’m proud that my daughter seems to have inherited some of that musical talent, lord knows it skipped right by me.

My mom decided it was time to part with some of this stuff, so she found a box and divided up some of the pictures, sheet music, classic guitar strings, letters, magazines, articles, newspaper clippings, sketches, dance steps and other related stuff and turned it over to me to enjoy and pass down to my daughter along the way.

Andy Williams

Can’t seem to go a week without hearing of another beloved celebrity passing on. This week it is Andy Williams, age 84, who was best known for his hit song Moon River and Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You and a slew of other hits that went gold. He apparently lost his year long battle with bladder cancer and died at home in Branson, Missouri.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Resting In Peace

It is sad to hear how the once famous Rodney King was found in his backyard swimming pool yesterday. This man had been through hell and back numerous time due to the LA. Police Department and just never seemed to get his life back on track after that well known tragedy. I had just seen him on Dr Drew’s Celebrity Rehab a few seasons ago and he also just had written and published a book after his life story. Hopefully Mr. King will be resting in peace from now on.
