Third Watch
TV shows don't usually make me cry, this one did tonight. I didn't expect it to be her. After Bosco and Faith, Taylor was my favorite character.

Before, Jenna and Heidi and were just annoying little twits, but now I think Jenna is not only a spolied little brat, but a horribly selfish one too. She was appalled that Christie would bid against her for a letter from home. Why? Because her (Jenna's) mother has cancer? I'm sorry, but if it were that important, maybe she should have stayed home! She and Heidi haven't even taken the time to get to know Christie, how do they know that her letter wasn't just as vital to her as it apparently was to Jenna. That poor girl is not only a fellow tribe member, but in their own peer group and they can't even be bothered giving her the time of day. I'm glad the tribe nailed Jenna for the selfish, manupulative bitch that she is during their little question challenge. Did anyone else notice that Heidi bid against her for the 2nd letter? Sure, she backed down, but I didn't hear Jenna crying about that. Bravo Christie for hanging in there another week against those selfish twits. I hope neither one of them wins, it really won't matter much though as they'll probably be doing Playboy together and getting their $$'s that way.

This was Maines' original comments from this article that I mentioned in an earlier blog. I don't have a problem with her apologizing, but at least be honest about the whole thing.

The Friday Five

1. Who is your favorite celebrity?

Hmmmm....probably Cary Grant, he's my favorite actor, I'm not really sure though who my favorite celeb is.

2. Who is your least favorite?


3. Have you ever met or seen any celebrities in real life?


4. Would you want to be famous? Why or why not?

My initial reaction was no, because I wouldn't want to give up my privacy, but I think there are a lot of actors who able to maintain normal lives. The yes part comes from a desire to be able to help people on a wider scale, celeb enables that.

5. If you had to trade places with a celebrity for a day, who would you choose and why?

I think it would be nice to be Angelina Jolie, since she is a UN Ambassador right now and I like the efforts she's been making for children.

Web Cams

One of my first stops every morning on the web is Ellsworth, Maine, Main St Web Cam from there, I click on over to The City Hall Web Cam and then on to Trenton Bridge Lobster Pound's own Tide Cam! I know that web cams and video equipment are a source of irritation and considered an intrusion by many, as evidenced in
this article, NY Tour Turns Evil Eye on Surveillance Cameras
, but I feel a sense of closeness when I view that cam way up there in Maine, where I leave a piece of myself every year.

My Photoblog!!

I'm very excited, can you tell?! I've finally found a site that seems to be wonderful for photo blogging and I now have my very own Mickey's Photoblog!!

I love taking pictures, I love looking at pictures. I think it was Ithy
She's one of the few that comes and reads my little blog here. I know that other people come here, but they don't comment, I don't know why really, can't be that they're shy, well, I suppose it could be. Could be that I'm quite boring. Frell! No, that couldn't be it! Kidding, I'm kidding!. Doesn't matter really, I enjoy it. I do hope people enjoy the pictures. Back to Ithy though, I think she was the one who called me a picture slut,. It's very true really, I love looking at pictures. I love looking at pictures of friends and of their children and pets and where they've been and all that and I love taking pictures. So please, have a look, I guess I'll try and post a new one every day and I've entered a photo challenge over at Photo Friday

Easter Egg Roll

The annual Easter Egg Roll at the White House has been canceled this year, according to this artcle They are going to have an event for children of service people, which I think is wonderful, but isn't this cancelation contrary to what everyone keeps telling us? That we should continue to live our lives as normal, but with added vigilance? What message then does this send the children?

Dixie Chicks, Free Speech and Cowards

The whole brouhaha over what Natalie Maines of the Dixie Chicks said didn't effect me at all. Im not a fan, don't even know what they sing, oh wait, yes, they had that remake of the old Stevie Nicks tune. I do, respect free speech, but, I feel sorry for the people who just wanted to hear them sing and could care less what Maine's political stand point is. I don't know why people like her or Susan Saradon or Sean Penn seem to think that we care what they have to say. So what if Sarandon is an Oscar winning actress, does this somehow make her more politically savvy? No, it means that she has a mouthpiece, a place to voice her opinion, just like I do, here with my blog, why don't they get a blog, write what they want and let the people who are interested in what they have to say read it? My audience isn't a captive one. The DCs fans could have walked out, but then they'd miss the rest of what they'd come for, the singing. Personally, I think Natalie Maines is a coward. It's easy to stand up and badmouth the president when you aren't even in the country. It will be interesting to see how things go when their tour in the US kicks off. They, (the group), are apparently already receiving threats because of Maines' cowardly remarks. Maines is quoted in this article as stating, "The more flak I get for it, the prouder I am," said Maines." Nice girl, isn't she? Her bandmate's property has been damaged because of her remark about the president, but what the heck, fuel the fire some more! Of course, I think that the people who are perpertrating these acts against them are just as cowardly as she is.

Another Hero

Iraqi Informer Angered by treatment of POW
I hope they let this man and his family move to America.

Men and Women in Combat

There's been quite a response to a post over on A Gaggle of Girls and One Guy. The post is entitled "At The Risk Of Getting My Ass Chewed On For This Post".
This post angered me, I wrote a couple of responses to it, finally waited a day and then responded, hopefully, in a more pleasant manner than I had originally composed. The post brought up a couple of other issues that I know have been tossed around lately, one is rape of women in combat and the other is mothers in combat. In my reply post, I stated that women in major cities all over the world are at higher risk of being raped than a woman in a combat situation. Thankfully, because of how our world has changed, the incidents of POWs are much fewer than in the past. So, I don't understand why everyone keeps bringing up rape as, what I see as an excuse for not letting women in combat situations.

Then there's the issue of mothers and fathers in battle. It amazes me in this day and age that people still continue to place the father in a second class role when it comes to their children. Where is it written that men don't care for their children as much as women do? I suppose that it could be argued that there are far more single mothers than there are single fathers, but just because some are dead beats, doesn't mean that they all are. I just keep getting the feeling that were moving backwards here instead of forwards.
