“So she is encouraging the future obesity and cavities in the skinny kids only?”

leskataus on Oct 30, 2013 at 22:31:56

“Many of those skinny kids are likely to become fat adults. Very few people who were skinny as children remain that way as they get older.”

The Problem With PG-13 Rated Films

Commented Jun 23, 2013 at 16:22:06 in Parents

“As a parent, I did not take my child to any movie that was "over-her-head", she was not into action movies and there were some disney choices I felt were too much for her. Myself, my parents dragged to me to inappropriate R-rated movies when I was a small child and I had nightmares for weeks. I later asked my mother about this, she said, "did not want to bother with a sitter and I covered your eyes." NOT WELL, watching a small child get mauled by a bear left me paralyzed for weeks, unable to play in the woods, my favourite playground.

I still shake my head if I am at a late night offering, definite R-rated movie and there are small children present. All I can think is, does your child not have a bedtime? Do you ever detach yourself enough to have a life outside your child, get a sitter!

Given my experiences, I did not do to my child what was done to me. I believe more parents need to parent their children, make the hard calls and not expose their children in the belief that they won't get it, they will and it will traumatize them. Thanks for the therapy necessity and sleepless nights and irrational fears.”

“I enjoy Paula Deen, she made it her way. The other "foodie" magazines you mention I don't touch. I buy different magazines (don't have subscriptions) because food porn is hot. When you are running low for ideas, you know you've seen it and if you know what you are doing, you can do it yourself in a more healthy way.

And besides, Paula reminds me of my aunt, who is from the south and makes the most mouthwatering meals, healthy....”

“Having a ritual, either at home or traveling is vital to a good nights sleep. For me it is going to bed and working on some puzzles (cross-word or sudoku) to relax. Some nights it is reading, but I am in bed, no noise distractions and I am usually asleep within 30 minutes. For someone who gets up before the sun, it is vital to get to bed on time.”

"Love Train": A Playlist for Don Cornelius & "Soul Train"

Commented Feb 2, 2012 at 07:43:59 in Entertainment

“Don Cornelius was amazing. He reflected the town and people I grew up with, when faced with nothing but white faces on the TV. The man had the vision and soul to make the world a more soulful and cool place. Watching the line every week was the highlight for many of my friends and myself. I had the fortune to grow up in an integrated town, you may say no, but I say yes. I speak as a white girl, who grew up watching the amazingness that was Soul Train every week, because Bandstand didn't cut the groove I was into musically.

I speak not just for myself but for my many friends who are deeply saddened by the untimely passing. May Brother Cornelius find peace now and continue on the soul train for eternity.”

Truck-Loving Girls and Ballet-Dancing Boys: Why Raising Ungendered Kids Isn't So Simple

“I was a Tonka-truck lovin' little girl. I played with the boys in the neighborhood, and all the games they play, as I was very athletic. I also had a large quantity of dolls and stuffed animals as well. Just because I can throw down with the boys and girls, does not make me different, it makes me, me. I think people obsess TOO much about sexuality and whether they will be "straight" or not. Just let the kid play, let them play how they want to play, it will all work out they way it will work out and get over it and don't put your garbage on them. I grew up to be a woman who has friends from both sides of the gender pool, and also friends from the fringes as well, because I never was bound by rules. I am a straight woman, who has many friends and family who are bi, straight, gay, lesbian and transgendered and I accept and love each and everyone of them for who they are, not how they live or love, that is THEIR business. I think if we all just got over ourselves, we'd find the common ground and stop perpetrating our fears onto our kids psyche's, we'd find they will turn out just fine in the end of it all. As a happy well adjusted tom boy, I can speak from experience here. And if I wasn't straight, I'd still write this.”

“Hailing from Michigan and stuck in Iowa, am hunkered down for the day and not going anywhere. This is beyond nuts and I know they got it worse back home! Iowa DOT & State Police say stay home and travel not advised in the eastern part of Iowa, I am listening. No school, most businesses are shut down and the plows are trying to keep roads open. Blowing and drifting snow is the worst part out here.”

maab76 on Feb 2, 2011 at 10:40:44

“As one who has weathered many a heavy winter storm, I can attest that this one is a doozy! More than 50 yrs ago I was taking a student group from Emporia KS to Denver when the interstate was closed. Luckily one student lived near the truck stop and housed us for about 5 days. Banks were at least 50 ft long and 15 ft deep when we drove in after the storm to see what we had avoided.

Snow plus wind plus dropping temperatures can be a recipe for death. If you are thinking of braving the storm, relax until the snow stops and the wind drops. Your life is more valuable than you currently believe.”

“In setting down one's resentment, anger, hatred of others, you A) release their hold on you B) begin to heal yourself C) realize that the only one hurt by this action was YOU D) that life is much better/lighter without all that baggage and finally E) everyone is actually better than you thought, including yourself.

“Yes well, it shot in Milwaukee, so when people come here expecting what they saw, they will be sorely disappointed by the city of 5 seasons and 9 smells (flood of '08 gave us 2 more than the 7 original)... just saying.”

Kramerica Industries on Dec 23, 2010 at 12:32:52

“LOL that's funny! The flood of 08 was absolutely insane. My g/f and I had to evacuate our apartment (Windsor on the River). We ended up going to Milwauke from Friday (when the river crested) until Monday just to get away from everything.

The company I worked for at the time asked me and my team to coordinate a fundraising effort for our coworkers who lost everything. In the process I became the person to whom our coworkers sent pictures documenting the flood. I think I have well over 1200 photos of the flood: before, during and after. Some of them include images taken by the National Guard and local law enforcement of things like rescuing stranded persons, driving a boat down 3rd street downtown, views from helicopters and airplanes. CR sustained damage that is hard to describe without photos.”
