I heard bits and pieces about explosions in Boston yesterday and was out with my kids at the park and drawing chalk pictures on the sidewalk and was largely cut off from the world for the day, so I had no idea of the brevity of what happened in our neighboring state until I came in this morning to prep for the morning show.
I usually poo-poo studies because it seems like you can cite a study to support (no pun intended) just about any position, but this one takes the cake in my mind due to it's longevity. Over the last decade-and-a-half, Some French researchers concluded that bras actually do the opposite of what they're supposed to do?
Are you kidding me? I can see pulling hair leading to a suspension, but a hair style? That's what happened to 5-year-old Ethan Clos of Springfield, Ohio. His mom was told that her son cannot come back to Reid Elementary School until he gets rid of his Mohawk haircut. Really?
When I was in junior high school I was sent to the principle's office for a paddling. It still stings today. I don't remember what I did to deserve a whack on the butt but I do remember that I thought it was excessive punishment for kids. Now, a 63-year-old elementary school teacher in the San Antonio Texas has been arrested and charged with knowingly causing injury to a child, a third-degree felony.
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! My Christmas decorations came down in January. Now I'm thinking about what spring flower decoration to put on my front door. As I drove around the Utica area this weekend, I saw lots of Christmas decorations still up. What's the deal with that? This is April.
When I flew to Florida last week I thought "Wow, I cannot believe we're able to do this." If this were the 1600s it would take days on horseback just to travel a few hundred miles. Also thought I'd probable be dead in my 40s from some incurable disease. The only reason why I'd want to live in the 1600s rather than today is to avoid a mass shooting. Other than that, we've got it good these days and here are ten reasons why.
Maybe it's the fact that the Utica-Rome Topix anonymous gossiping pages are the most active one in the nation, or maybe it's this nasty weather we're always plagued with, but after a Gallup 'wellbeing' poll, the Business Insider has ranked the Utica-Rome metro area the 11th most miserable city in the nation! Well, look at the bright side... We're not the worst. Yet.
If I asked you to tell me some of your biggest driving pet peeves, I'm sure you've have plenty to share with me. Lately, one of mine has to be people who take up multiple parking spaces for no apparent reason other than laziness or poor parking skills.
Recently a mom took her young 9-10 y/o girl to a Victoria's Secret PINK store to buy some unmentionables and created a firestorm among concerned parents so this latest bit from every woman's favorite underwear giant is really flipping some wigs too.
The old saying "kids will be kids" apparently doesn't wash with a Florida homeowners association. The directors of the 48-unit townhouse development, Persimmon Place, is proposing a new set of rules that, according to SFGate.com, is most definitely not kid friendly. Just how restrictive is it?
