Apparently, those single nucleotide polymorphisms can be quite tricky to predict so don't waste your money... yet.

Roll Tide!



Alabama Woman Defends Naming Her Newborn Son Krimson Tyde

It's her and her husband's decision to name their child. Nobody else should meddle.

Roll Tide!


[The BLOG note: My youngest daughter got me one of these snuggies for Christmas because I'm a little partial to Bama football.]

Fritter Friction



Christmas Night Fight Between Sisters Over Apple Fritters Ends In Stabbing

I emailed this link to my sister with a warning about her not getting between me and my apple fritters.

She emailed back, "It’s a good thing neither of us bake anyway Sister!" :-)

More Than A Selfie



Flirty Obama Owes Us An Apology

To the tune of the old Bee Gees song, "More Than A Woman"... more than a selfie.

Oh, to be a fly on the wall at the White House

Cat Band



Mylie Cyrus is getting all this attention from a giant singing cat at the AMA awards, but I've been showcasing singing cats for years...

The Kitty Band

And these cats play instruments which is more than I can do.

Question?

Wild Animals



Dallas Zoo Can't Explain Why Lion Turned On Lion

It is a rare event for a male lion to kill a female, but they are wild animals in cages... maybe it was a psychotic break.

Then again, is a zoo any less dangerous that being out in the wild with trophy hunters like this woman who will shoot anything that moves...



This is her story if you're interested:

Gator Tales



My husband just emailed this to me from the golf course.

I asked him how big it was and he said about six or seven feet.

Happy Halloween



Halloween creeped up on me this year. For some reason I was thinking it was tomorrow and freaked out this morning because we had already eaten most of the candy. Luckily my husband brought some home last night on his way home from work.

Thank you dear.

Halloween Humor



I don't know how prevalent this attitude is in Scotland, but it made me smile nonetheless.

I've run across some trick-or-treaters for which I could've used this jack-o-lantern.

That's Florida

Alligator Forces Walmart To Lock Doors:
6-foot Beast Makes Unwelcome Appearance At Apopka, Orlando Store


Not too long ago, my husband was standing at a nearby golf course and he looked over and saw a small gator standing next to him.

Years ago, while we were canoeing on the Hillsborough River, we had a huge gator go underneath our canoe and my husband was very angry with me because I was more afraid of a dragonfly than a creature that could eat us both.

Life in Florida.

Annoying Celebrity Spokespeople



I always think this when those epic commercials come on TV and these celebrity spokespeople try to guilt me into donating to charities that they're getting paid to sponsor.

Nothing Compares

Sinead O'Connor To Miley: 'Not cool' To Pimp Yourself

As a mother, I can agree with what most of what Sinead is saying except the part when she kindly compares her talent to Myley's...

California Mother Faces Public Outcry After Posting Photos Of Her Lifting Weights At 8 Months Pregnant

My biggest problem with this is that during pregnancy a hormone is released to soften pelvic ligaments which, of course, soften all the ligaments in the body. I know she's a world class athlete, but I would hate to see some accident occur. It isn't the weight... it's only 45 pounds and I carried more than that when I was pregnant with my second daughter and was lugging my first one around. I'm more worried about the bar falling than the weight lifting.
