I’m going to Disney World!

Well that’s what the Cruises said this week when they went to visit Mickey Mouse at Walt Disney World, Florida (my side of town). Of course, they have to take the loving family pictures to make sure they can deduct this as a working trip and of course give Suri more publicity so she can make more money than they do at a very early age.

You can even tell, in one of the pictures where, Tom’s son Connor, adopted by Nicole and him when they were married, was sort of excluded from the family unit in the pictures. Very Sad!

This is not the first time Connor has been dissed by his “father”, remember the movie premiere where he made his first acting debut? He was there by himself, no “Mommy” or “Daddy” to support him. It was the recent Will Smith movie, Seven Pounds. At least he can live in the lap of luxury for awhile, but if I were him I’d sack away my own stash just in case they tell me I’m on my own when I turn eighteen. Shameful!!

Here is the story of the Cruises at Disney World and here is the story of Connor attending his premiere alone.

It’s been a long time….

I’ve been away for awhile. I know I have not inserted any new posts in over a month but I was kind of discouraged with this whole blogging thing.

Everyone raves about this blogging thing and how so many people communicate via blogs and such, but I don’t ever see one comment on any of my posts. I know someone out there has to have something to say about what I post. Not everyone that reads these post agrees with me I’m sure. So I didn’t see a motivation to keep writing if there was no interaction.

Then something changed my mind: my stats. After a month of not logging in, I log in and find I had over 100 views last month. That’s exciting! So many people are actually viewing my posts! I like to know that I am not writing in vain and now that I know, I will keep doing it.

I just wish I could get some comments from you all. What do you guys need to spur you to take a minute to type in a comment? Do you need motivation? Should I post more controversial topics or should I keep it strictly entertainment? I’ve noticed my tv posts get the most hits, so maybe I will continue that thread.

Maybe I will set up a contest or giveaway to the person with the most comments in a month. I have to figure that one out a little more.

For now, I am back and I will be posting more often.

Thanks for visiting!

Travolta Tragedy

It is sad to learn of Jett Travolta’s unexpected death. Much sadder still that any parent would have to live through their child’s death, especially when it is accidental and unexpected.

I send out my sincerest condolences to the family.

Kudos for Pushing Daisies

Pushing Daisies keeps receiving accolades even after it’s cancellation.

I found this one today.

The writer voices my sentiments exactly.

Pushing Daisies Cliffhanger

Do you believe Ned’s Dad is back?!! And he is no other than George Hamilton!!! WOW, this was going to be a great story line indeed. Too bad ABC won’t let it play out!!

I just loved Wednesday’s show, gripping until the end. Though I do wonder how they will tie up all these loose  ends in the last episode.

I keep praying another network will pick up the show, but it looks like Bryan Fuller, the shows creator, gave up on it to go back to HEROES, another show that is on the brink.

I guess people just don’t like to be entertained with really creative, funny and compelling story lines. The instant gratification generation just wants to be pummelled with reality stink. Let’s just hope and pray that some of our other faves like LOST, Desperate Housewives and some other greats can make it. Let’s help get the reality crap off the air by changing the channel or turning off the idiot box when they come on. Maybe that way some culture will come back into our lives.

Interesting article on EW about this, read it here.

Finally something good…….

This is great news for the advocate of children. John Walsh and his family deserve this closure. When this crime occurred back in the early 80’s there were no real laws that protected children. Actually, not many people believed their children would ever be harmed in any way. So as a result children were allowed to go places and be places that today would be thought to be neglect.

I don’t agree with the end of this article, which states that parents now are paranoid and that John Walsh created this. I think the way the world is now, it is not being paranoid, it is being careful with our children and protecting them.

John Walsh is a hero like very few. My hats of to you, John!

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.

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.
