Leaving on a Jet Plane

In just a few hours, I'll be jetting off to London for some much needed R&R, and taking a break from blogging as I enjoy my holiday. See you when I get back!

Media circus

Two days ago, Rosie O'Donnell posted a picture on her blog of her daughter Vivi wearing a military costume, and was immediately blasted for "using" her child to make an anti-war statement. The wackos at Fox & Friends even went so far as to say that her daughter was dressed up "as a terrorist".

Too bad journalistic integrity and basic research are in such short supply over at Fox. If they'd bothered to check, they'd have found that the outfit in question is actually an Army Infantry costume, sold on

ah well....I suppose painting Rosie as an evil entity/bad parent is more fun, not to mention a ratings grabber.

Interesting, though, that a similar picture of her son dressed in the same outfit, posted weeks earlier, garnered absolutely zero response from anyone.

Busy, busy, busy!

Well, I'm not sure if anyone is actually reading this blog on a regular basis (except maybe you, ya for that!) but I apologize for the lack of new posts lately. Life has been busy, with Graduation activities, many birthday celebrations, and plans for our upcoming Birthday Extravaganza Vacation to the British Isles. I'll be turning 40 in just a couple of weeks, and intend to be lying prone under the spigot at the Guiness Factory in Dublin when this momentous occasion occurs.

Updates will be posted as life permits!
