Thanks and Giving

Happy Thanksgiving to all! Now that Thanksgiving is upon us and the return of the holidays, however you celebrate, it is time to remember those that may need extra help during these times.

I am partial to children and especially sick children and that is why I would like you to support a charity that does so much to help children with cancer.

ST. Jude Childrens Research Hospital provides care for children with cancer and doesn’t charge a cent. So this holiday season please share your abundance with them.

Their current promotion called Thanks and Giving is going on now. Watch this video, then call or go online at www.stjude.org to make your donation. And give thanks for the blessings you currently have in your life.

Another one of my favorites cancelled by ABC

Eli Stone was another one of my favorite new shows and it also got the ax. Like I said, won’t be watching any new shows.

This season I’ve been hit the hardest than any other season with cancellations. Pushing Daisies, Eli Stone, My Own Worst Enemy.  It’s just too much!!! I’m done with new shows!! Done I tell you!!

Read the story here: http://www.tvguide.com/News/Daisies-Eli-Dirty-1000045.aspx

Pushing Daisies is cancelled.

Well, ABC did it again! Cancelled one of the best shows on the air in a long time.

I guess we will continue to watch the same old recycled shows, since the execs at these stupid stations only care about ratings.

On my end, I know I won’t be watching any new shows. I just don’t like getting into a show and then it’s pulled out from under me. I will watch what is currently out there and when I see a new show has been on for more than 2 seasons I’ll get into it. That’s how I did it for Ugly Betty and I like it that way.

Anyway, a standing ovation for one of my favorite shows!! Bravo! Pushing Daisies, Bravo!!

All the prices in this article are cheaper that Orlando, FL

Here in Orlando, a gallon of milk costs $3.89 or up to $4 if you shop at Publix. A loaf of bread, the generic kind costs you $2, a 16 oz tub of butter costs about $2.50.  Iceberg lettuce is at $2 each, 1 pound of the small Roma tomatoes is .99 and 1 pound of Bananas is about .64, basically one banana.

So I think, technically Orlando can be considered the priciest cities, actually more than New York City itself. It has to do more with being a tourist town. Everyone thinks they will benefit from the tourist, so those of us that live here suffer the consequences.

Anyway, if you want to know what I am ranting about check out this article.

Ok, so Obama won…..

I like everyone else in this country am excited that we have a new president and that this may bring good change, but the way this country and the world are celebrating it is like our savior is born again!

C’mon people, he is just a man. That’s all. A human man with no special powers. So yeah, he’s black and he won the presidency, so what! This is the time he needs to prove to us he is more than just a color! Color doesn’t mean you’ll get the job done, it doesn’t mean you have all the answers and it surely doesn’t mean your a super being!

We need to wait and see what he is made of. We need to give him our support and step back. The country needs someone who can grab the bull by the horns and run.  Will it be Obama? Who knows? Maybe he will end up meeting all our expectations and we can re-elect him for a second term, but maybe he will end up being just another figure head of the government and not get much done. So let’s hold on to our hats here!

Let’s be happy but cautious. Let’s not get ahead of ourselves. We know he has big plans, but we also know lots of other presidents had big plans and that’s all they ended up with.

Hey, I’m glad to see the monkey in a suit (Bush) go to. I wouldn’t have cared if it was Howard Stern (I can’t stand the man, by the way!) who won, as long as the monkey was out of the chair! So most of us feel like we just won the lotto, but I don’t see a difference in my paycheck yet.

Relax and Release that is all we can do.
