Life for kids today is different
Than it was in days gone by,
When we would respect our elders
Or we’d know the reason why.
And the teachers use to paddle us
Till our hind ends were sore ,
And if it got back to our parents
They’d give us a little more.
Now we’re not allowed to spank them
Even if they go hog wild,
The social workers come down on us
For correcting our own child.
Now the teachers beg the kids to mind
Most time, to no avail ,
But if they lifted up one finger
They would be hauled off to jail.
If we’d have acted like kids do today
The next thing we’d have felt ,
Would be a dozen willow switches
Or a big old leather belt.
We were loved as much as you are
And taught never to neglect,
To show the world you’d been taught manners
And to treat folks with respect.
Kyle Hornbeck : 10 Classic Star Trek Plot Devices That Could Inspire The Next Movie The biggest issue with the Abrams Trek movies is that they aren't boldly going... anywhere... things just happen while Kirk and Co seem to be bumming around SF and they get sent off to deal with stuff. JJ, listen up: I don't care what you do (maybe a little), but let the Enterprise EXPLORE, that's what the show is about (well, that and talking things out and coming to accept the other). I think that this list is a good start, but I think we can flesh this out a little more. 8 minutes ago - View -
Ashley Ann : There's an 'S' under my clothes
On my chest where nobody else can see
I light up when the doors are closed
I am free, yeah
And I wish I could make my move
I can tell that you're really into me
And I don't got a thing to lose, in my dreams, in my dreams
I'm a bad-ass jumping off the moving train
I'm a Jane Bond, putting all them guys to shame
I'm a wild card, and I'm gonna steal your game
You better watch out
I'm a fire starter, make your blood run faster 25 minutes ago - View -

William Stevenson : Beech tree leaves are good rain intercepters...well, up to a point. But though I got well doused with the downpour I got to see a fisher cat, a blue jay attack a massive hawk for (I surmise) invading his nest, something big and black came on the heels of the fisher cat thereby providing my imagination with the first impression that here was another wild thing only a good deal bigger and with a growl that could have been the growl of a black wolf. But alas, it was only the uneventful growl of a domestic dog (easy enough to handle). Then if all this was not enough some time later, when it began to rain in earnest, there in the same place I saw the pileated woodpecker and the owl on Saturday was a black capped night heron. He immediately flew off but perched only a short distance away where I could watch him preen himself. He was as was I not merely resigned to the drenching rain but actually I think enjoying it. 39 minutes ago - View -
Pamela Hensley Roberts : Interesting turn of events earlier, as most of you know one of my personal mottos is to never run unless someone or something is chasing you! Well I went into our storage trailer earlier looking for something and I was cautiously looking out in case there could be a rat or heaven forbid a snake in there, then I had that defining moment when I open a cabinet door and the electrical cord to a kitchen appliance fell out... I found out 1- My motto is slightly flawed, 2- even though I am a "fuller figure" I can move pretty fast if/when I want to! Whew!!! 46 minutes ago - View -

Mike Huckabee : If gun-shaped Legos and Pop-Tarts weren’t harmless enough objects for schools to make a federal case out of, then how about a T-shirt?... 14-year-old Jared Marcum of Logan, West Virginia, had a spotless record. Until he wore his NRA T-shirt to his middle school. When he refused to take it off, the school had him arrested for disturbing the education process. Which wasn’t true, because he got quite an education in how liberal school officials think. He was even threatened with charges of making terroristic threats. In the end, he was officially charged with obstructing an officer, who claimed Jared wouldn’t stop talking, which hindered the cop’s ability to arrest him. So apparently, neither the First NOR Second Amendment apply in Logan. Jared could face a $500 fine and a year in jail. All because he wore a T-shirt that promotes safe and responsible gun ownership. You know, I bet if he’d worn a T-shirt promoting a rapper who records songs about shooting police officers, he’d still be in study hall.

Jessica White : "You know what's wrong with you, Miss Whoever-you-are? You're chicken, you've got no guts. You're afraid to stick out your chin and say, "Okay, life's a fact, people do fall in love, people do belong to each other, because that's the only chance anybody's got for real happiness." You call yourself a free spirit, a "wild thing," and you're terrified somebody's gonna stick you in a cage. Well baby, you're already in that cage. You built it yourself. And it's not bounded in the west by Tulip, Texas, or in the east by Somali-land. It's wherever you go. Because no matter where you run, you just end up running into yourself"- Breakfast at Tiffany's is so spot on. Holly Golightly is my soul sister 1 hour ago - View -
The bald eagle has been the national emblem of the United States since 1782 (winning out over the objections of Benjamin Franklin who supported the wild turkey (Meleagris gallopavo)) and a spiritual symbol for native people for far longer than that.
The bald eagle builds the largest nest of any North American bird, up to 13 feet (4 m) deep, 8.2 feet (2.5 m) wide, and 1.1 tons in weight.
A bald eagle will harass a hunting osprey until the smaller raptor drops its prey in midair, where the eagle swoops it up. A bald eagle may even snatch a fish directly out of an osprey's talons. Fishing mammals (even people sometimes) can also lose prey to bald eagle piracy.
Fidelity - Once paired, bald eagles remain together until one dies.
Bald eagles lay from one to three eggs. The 35 days of incubation duties are shared by both male and female. Nesting cycle - about 20 weeks. Longevity - Wild bald eagles may live as long as thirty years.
They can see four to seven times better than people. They can see things from a very far distance of up to one mile. This characteristic enables them to search for their food high up in the sky or from a perch in a tree or cliff.
One more interesting thing: A pair of bald eagles from Florida is credited for building the largest nest that measures six meters deep, four meters wide and weighs nearly three tons.
