This man seriously infuriates me!!

First go here & read this article:

Now, why in the heck does Kanye West think that Taylor Swift should have defended him or anything in ANY interview she had? He was rude, snatched the microphone out of her hand to tell her she didn't deserve to win, that someone else, who she had BEAT should have won? That was rude, ignorant & not his place!! She is a very good singer, she didn't deserve his behavior!! No matter who thinks she deserved to win or not, she WON, she deserved to be treated with respect, allowed to graciously say her thank yous & to be applauded & celebrate her win among her peers. Why was it his place to say a dang word? It WASN'T!! Now he wants more media attention by saying she capitalized on the incident, that she didn't defend him!! Heck, if it was me, my brothers would have hunted him down & kicked his A$$!!! He deserves no apology, no defense, he should be very ashamed of himself for thinking he does!! Grow up Kanye!! It's about time you learned some manors & quit acting like you're 2!!

Tooth Fairy ~ 5/5

Here's what has to say:

Tooth Fairy(2009) PG
When minor-league hockey player Derek Thompson -- who has a penchant for knocking out his opponents' teeth every time he plays -- disillusions a fan, he is sentenced to a stint for one week as a bona fide, tutu-clad, real-life tooth fairy. Soon, Derek is inspired to rekindle his youthful dreams. Ashley Judd portrays his love interest, Carly, in this family comedy starring The Rock aka Dwayne Johnson.

My thoughts:

Such a cute movie!! I loved "The Rock" in this movie!! He plays a good muscle bound jerk for sure!! I loved the part where his mini tooth fairy self rode a Tech Deck to escape!! Very cute lesson & makes you realize that you want your child to dream & thier childhood to last forever or as long as possible!!

MOVIE REVIEW: The Expendables

The Expendables ~ 5/5

Here's what has to say:

The Expendables(2010) R
Barney (Sylvester Stallone) leads a ragtag band of hired guns charged with overthrowing a South American despot, a job no official military unit is willing to touch. But once on the ground, the team learns there's more to the mission than they were told. Their next move determines whether they survive -- or are, indeed, expendable. Jason Statham, Mickey Rourke, Dolph Lundgren and Jet Li round out a stellar cast.

My thoughts:

Thought this movie was AWESOME!! I never expected Stone Cold to be a bad guy, I never expected him to be the muscle for the foreign army either!! I loved loved loved this movie!! Lots of action!! My favorite part was seeing Rambo vs Stone Cold!!

MOVIE REVIEW: Vampire's Suck

Vampire's Suck ~ 3/5

Here's what has to say:
Vampires Suck(2010) PG-13
From the creators of Disaster Movie and Meet the Spartans comes a spoof of pop culture and teenage vampire movies starring Jenn Proske as Becca, a high schooler who must choose between two hunky boys who both have killer smiles. While surrounded by vampires, werewolves (wereChihuahuas, anyone?) and gossipy teens with their own romantic dilemmas, the neurotic Becca also copes with her overprotective father and the school's impending prom.

My thoughts:

I am a Twilight fan, I thought maybe it would be funny & I'd like it because I like other spoof movies. This one however, some of the jokes were way over the heads of everyone!! If you haven't seen the Twilight movies, you'd be lost!

MOVIE REVIEW: The Outsiders

The Outsiders ~ 5/5

Here's what has to say:
The Outsiders(1983) PG
Francis Ford Coppola's drama about teen turmoil in rural Oklahoma features nearly every big name of 1980s cinema -- including Tom Cruise, Matt Dillon, Emilio Estevez, C. Thomas Howell, Rob Lowe, Diane Lane, Ralph Macchio and Patrick Swayze. In this faithful adaptation of S.E. Hinton's novel, the hardscrabble "Greasers" face off against the affluent "Socs," and the resulting conflict proves sad and deadly for these ultimately lovable delinquents.

My thoughts:

Love this movie!! It only gets better!! And who doesn't like to see hunky Patrick Swayze!!

Congrats John & Kelly!!

LOS ANGELES — John Travolta and Kelly Preston will have a new guest at their Thanksgiving table.
A publicist says the couple welcomed a baby boy Tuesday in Florida. They named their new son Benjamin.
The eight-pound, three-ounce boy was born at an undisclosed Florida hospital.
Spokeswoman Samantha Mast said in a statement late Tuesday that the couple and their daughter, Ella Bleu, "are ecstatic and very happy about the newest member of the family." The statement says Preston and baby Benjamin "are healthy and doing beautifully."
This is the third child for Travolta and Preston, who were married in 1991. Their eldest child, son Jett, died last year at age 16.

Today I was asked to name 5 good things about me ~ can I even do that? I thought & thought but wasn't sure what to write! I even walked away for a bit & thought about what that meant! Do I even know 5 good things about me? Here's what I came up with:

1. I am a great mom, I do everything & anything for my children. I make sure they have what they need & some of what they want, even if that means I don't have what I need or want. I love them very much & want them to have the happiest childhood memories ever :)

2. I am a great wife. I love my husband very much & I appreciate him. If it wasn't for him, I would be lost in this crazy life I live. I not only do his laundry & clean the house, I surprise him with things he likes, plan fun things for us to do & my favorite is cuddling beside him.

3. I am a great daughter. My mom is all I have left & even though we have been through alot & I have not always been the best, I have learned from my mistakes & I now cherish that I still have my mom. She is like my best friend & I can always count on her & she can count on me. We spend alot of time together, running errands & shopping. I hope one day that I can be the mom & friend she is to me, to my own daughter.

4. I am a great aunt/sister. I am always there when I am needed. I help them out, I provide what thier own familys can not. I run myself a little ragged doing this, but without my nieces, nephews, brothers & sisters, I would not be the person I am today. (And I think they would be lost without me!!)

5. I am a great friend. I am the friend that is always there, who can be counted on for whatever it is that they need. Whether it be advice, a hot meal, a babysitter, anything they need, I am here. All hours of the day & night, whenever my phone goes off, here I am :)

Lastly, I am a Child of God. Someone who is often donating my time, my talents, whatever it is that God needs from me. I am a Sunday school teacher, I help with different youth programs. I have also taught my children to be as helpful & giving as I am.

I have also come to realize that even though I have many faults, I have much more positives :) I spent all my time sharing about the person I am to others, I didn't mention any of the other things I am. I am good with children, I am a positive person, very hard working, good at cleaning or organizing. I love to read, take photos, I am thoughtful & forgiving. I am the person I want to be. I am very blessed to have so many good things to share, how could I have ever questioned naming 5 positive things about me?

I am now going to challenge you: Can you say 5 positive things about you?

Mini-Wheats Class Action Settlement

Kellogg's Class Action Settlement for Mini Wheats

All Claim Forms must be submitted on or before June 3, 2011. Click here to submit a Claim Form online. Click here to download a Claim Form.
Overview Of The Proposed Settlement
A proposed settlement has been reached in a lawsuit involving Kellogg, the company that makes Frosted Mini-Wheats. The Lawsuit claimed that Kellogg falsely advertised that its Frosted Mini-Wheats cereal improved kids’ attentiveness, memory and other cognitive functions to a degree not supported by competent clinical evidence. Kellogg stands by its advertising and denies it did anything wrong.
The Court did not decide who was right. Instead, both sides agreed to a settlement. By agreeing to a settlement, the Parties avoid the costs and risk of a trial and the Class will get compensation. The Class Representatives and their attorneys believe that the settlement is in the best interests of the Class Members.
What Are My Options?
Kellogg has agreed to create a fund to pay claims of $2.75 million. Any money left over will be donated to one or more charities. Kellogg also has agreed to distribute to charities that provide food to the indigent a total of $5.5 million worth of certain Kellogg branded food items. Under the settlement, Kellogg agreed to make certain changes to the Frosted Mini-Wheats marketing and labeling. Details are described in the Settlement Agreement, which is available
on this website.
Cash payments will be made if the Court gives its final approval to the proposed settlement and after the final approval is no longer subject to appeal.
Class Member Options
You can submit a
Claim Form electronically via this website or by mail postmarked no later than June 3, 2011.
If you want to exclude yourself from the Class Action, you must formally request to exclude yourself by sending a letter to the Claims Administrator. The letter must be postmarked on or before January 15, 2011.
Any Settlement Class Member wishing to object to or to oppose the approval of this Settlement and/or the Fee and Cost Application must file a written objection with the Court and serve it on the Parties by January 15, 2011.
You will get no cash refund. However, any leftover money will be donated to one or more charities.
For further details on Class Member options, please consult the
Notice or Frequently Asked Questions on this website.
Settlement Hearing
A Settlement Hearing is scheduled for February 14, 2011 at 10:30 a.m. If the Court approves the settlement and there are no appeals, the cash will be distributed approximately 130 days after the Settlement Hearing. If the Court does not approve the settlement, or if the settlement is overturned on appeal, no cash payments will be made.

More on Teen Mom's Amber's Charges

November 18, 2010
'Teen Mom' charged with battery
Police study MTV tapes, request charges against Portwood
By Brandi Watters
The Herald Bulletin Thu Nov 18, 2010, 09:17 PM EST
ANDERSON, Ind. — MTV’s “Teen Mom” reality star and Anderson native Amber Portwood is facing preliminary charges of felony battery.Anderson Police Department Detective Mitch Carroll said police are pursuing two felony counts of battery and one misdemeanor count of battery against Portwood relating to domestic violence against her child’s father, Gary Shirley. The incidents of alleged abuse were captured on film by MTV cameras over the past year.On Thursday, Carroll issued a statement explaining the charges.“Following a seven-week investigation into alleged domestic violence, Anderson Police have filed three criminal charges versus 20-year-old MTV reality show Teen Mom Amber Portwood,” the statement reads.The investigation began in late September after an episode of the MTV show aired depicting Portwood repeatedly hitting, slapping and kicking Shirley.The three criminal charges are related to three separate incidents.After Anderson police subpoenaed MTV’s unedited footage of the fights, police discovered three separate incidents that warranted criminal charges, Carroll said.On Aug. 14, 2009, Portwood shoved Shirley against a wall, slapped him in the face and choked him, according to police documents.“The incident was witnessed by the couple’s one-year-old child who sat in a child seat on a nearby bed,” the statement reads.Carroll said Portwood faces two felony charges because her daughter, Leah, was present during two of the attacks.On June 14, Portwood was videotaped slapping Shirley five times, punching him three times and kicking him at least once, according to police.On July 18, Portwood was again videotaped in the presence of her daughter slapping Shirley in the face and punching him several times in the face and upper body, according to police records.The July 18 incident never aired on the MTV program.According to the probable cause affidavit, Portwood got into a “fighter stance and punched Gary several more times in the facial area and upper body. Initially Gary was sitting down, but got up and exited the room as the punches were thrown.”The child was present for the fight.On Oct. 20, Portwood implicated herself in all of the incidents, according to the probable cause affidavit.“She stated that the incidents were out of anger and were not staged for the reality show,” Detective Jake Brooks wrote in the police report. “She claimed to not remember everything due to some medical issues in which she is under a (doctor’s) care for currently.”Portwood denied at least one allegation, claiming Leah was only present during one fight, Brooks said.Shirley told police that Portwood had punched, kicked and slapped him numerous times.Carroll said Portwood has not yet been arrested or formally charged.His office forwarded the requested
battery charges to the office of county Prosecutor Tom Broderick.Broderick will then decide if the charges should be elevated, reduced, dismissed or remain the same, according to Carroll.If Broderick wants to pursue charges against Portwood, a warrant will be issued for her arrest, Carroll explained.“As in any case, we will review the evidence to determine what, if any, formal charges should be filed,” Broderick said Thursday.When asked if Portwood will continue to be featured on the MTV reality show, MTV’s Melissa Barreto responded, “We are cooperating with all parties and hope for a quick and fair resolution that allows everyone involved to move forward in a positive manner.”The Herald Bulletin visited Portwood’s Anderson home Thursday seeking comment. She was not home, according to a family friend in front of her home.He said media and camera crews had already begun showing up at the Portwood home.Indiana’s Department of Child Services has an “open assessment” into Portwood’s alleged domestic violence due to the presence of her child during the fights.Ann Houseworth of DCS said the criminal charges against Portwood won’t necessarily affect the outcome of DCS’ investigation, but could affect placement of the couple’s daughter if allegations prove true. “If you were asking if that would play a role in placement, we would certainly take that into account when making recommendations for the placement of the child.”Prosecutor-elect Rodney Cummings, who will take office in January, said he expects that he’ll likely be handling Portwood’s case due to the timing of the charges.“If it’s a felony case, it’s unlikely that it’s ever going to be resolved before the end of the year,” Cummings said.Since Portwood doesn’t have a criminal record, she could be eligible for diversion, Cummings said, but that’s unlikely due to the nature of the possible charges.Diversion allows a subject to avoid criminal conviction by following court guidelines regarding parenting classes or anger management courses.“Pretrial diversion is not usually for people charged with felonies. It’s not unheard of either. That could be a possibility,” Cummings said.If convicted on these charges, Portwood could face three years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000.

Teen Mom's Amber ~ Facing Charges?

Apparantly Amber is facing charges!! It's about time she faces some kind of consequences for her actions against Gary!!

Not saying Gary's faultless or anything, just saying he never hit her or threw things are her or anything & she flipped about little things that turned into an all out brawl over it!! For instance, she flipped out & kicked Gary out because he told her she needed to put her dirty dishes, which includes a steak knife, into the sink. Amber had left them on a box or something within reach of thier 1 year old Leah. I hope Amber gets help so Leah can have the mom she deserves!

Movie Review: Nine Lives

Nine Lives ~ 2/5

Here's what has to say about it:
Nine Lives 2002 R 85 minutes
When nine hard-partying pals converge on an ancient Scottish estate for a weekend of bacchanalia, their plans turn ghoulishly awry after they discover that the house holds a grisly secret: Its former owner lost his claim to the property through deceit, and his eyes were gouged out in the ultimate act of violence. Decades later, it seems his spirit wants to reclaim ownership using whatever means necessary. Stars Paris Hilton and Amelia Warner.

My comments:
For one thing, thier accents sucked. They either sounded fake or like they couldn't talk at all. It's set in an old friend's family home, in Scotland & they are snowed in. Someone starts killing them all. I couldn't believe Paris Hilton's character is the first to die!! I wouldn't watch it again, it was a strange movie!

MOVIE REVIEW: Home of the Brave

Home of the Brave ~ 5/5

Home of the Brave 2006 R 105 minutes
Oscar-winning producer Irwin Winkler (Rocky) takes the director's seat for this drama about three American soldiers who encounter some tough challenges as they adjust to life after performing a tour of duty in Iraq. Will (Samuel L. Jackson) is a doctor who attempts to return to his practice; Vanessa (Jessica Biel) learns to live with one hand while raising her child alone; and Tommy (Brian Presley) mourns the loss of his best friend in combat.
My comments:
I absolutely loved this movie. It was very to the point, shows the darker side of being at war. It also shows how going to war not only affects the soldier, thier body & thier mind, but thier family, friends, everything in thier life! My 9 year old son watched it & asked alot of questions about war & about what happens. It showed the things alot of people don't know about or understand. Very good movie, I would watch it again!

How horrible!!

LEOMA, Tenn. - A national non-profit organization has stepped in to help a Lawrence County family whose dog was severely injured in a drive by shooting last week.

California-based United Animal Nations (UAN) has issued a grant to help pay for veterinary care for the dog, named Magic.

UAN is also offering a $2,500 reward to anyone with information leading to the arrest of the person responsible for shooting the dog.

Magic was shot last Wednesday after the Beaulieu family returned home from church.

They let their four dogs into the yard, and called them back in a few minutes later, but Magic didn't return.

The family found her lying motionless in the driveway and rushed her to Shoal Creek Animal Hospital, thinking she had been hit by a car.

Veterinarians discovered Magic had been shot several times by someone from a passing car.

Pellets were found near her spine, and the family learned the dog, who loves to run, may not even be able to walk again.

Dr. Jonathan Pitts, who is treating Magic, said, "The chances of her walking again aren't that great. Unfortunately, the odds are against her."

Magic's owner Chelsea Kifer told News 2 she is holding out hope for a recovery. She said, "I'm just hanging in there, because she deserves a chance."

UAN has posted video of the dog's recovery on

Magic is receiving anti-inflammatory medication and fluids and will be reassessed in a few days.

The family received a $300 LifeLine grant from UAN, but veterinarian bills are already close to $1,000.

The Beaulieu family rescued Magic as a puppy in 2005 after finding her lying in a ditch covered in ticks.

To make a donation directly to Magic's care, contact the Shoal Creek Animal Hospital in Lawrenceburg at (931) 762-7294.

Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to call the Lawrenceburg Police Department at (931) 762-0450.

MOVIE REVIEW: Nightmare on Elm Street

Nightmare on Elm Street ~ 4/5
Before this movie even arrived at our house, I was unsure if I would like it or not. No one can possibly be Freddy Krueger unless it's Robert England right? For my husband, the answer to that is Yes, NO ONE can replace Robert England as Freddy. However, for me, the answer is No, someone else CAN be Freddy & can be convincing & bring a different aspect to the role. This movie is different from the original, rather than focus on Freddy & his killings, this movie focus's on why he was killing these kids & what his past was. Instead of a quick moment of saying he's a child killer or molester, this movie allows the kids to go back & remember what happened, helps them to find the reasons why they are hated. First they think they wrongly accused him, until them look deeper into the past & go back to the school where the bad things happened. They go to the basement where Freddy lived & they are frustrated because they don't know why they have come back here or what they are looking for. However, they quickly figure out where to go & how to find the cave he had taken them to. They flash back throughout the movie to show the past, to focus more on that than on Freddy & his current hobby: killing them. The more indepth focus of the movie & the more about Freddy we know makes him all the more scarier. I enjoyed this prospective & knowing just what he did & how he reacted to the kids telling on him, makes him all the more scary!! Before you decide you don't like it based on the portrayal of Freddy by a new actor, give it a chance, it tells more about the story than you knew before. Excellent movie, scared my little monster & even me, just a little!!

Halloween has past.........

Most Halloween nights, moms & dads all over the country, drag thier child from house to house & street to street for a sack of candy. We dress them in thier warm clothes, with thier favorite character costume pulled snugly overtop. Now, we apply make-up, fake blood, sparkles & crowns, perfectly executing the look. Sometimes we prepare weeks in advance, sewing costumes, creating handmade costumes out of cardboard boxes. We glue & stitch, working for hours. Some run out to the stores & purchase the entire outfit head to toe, plopping down a pretty penny for a costume worn once or twice. However it is that we prepare, however little or long we work; it all leads to this: HALLOWEEN NIGHT, TRICK OR TREATING!!
In our town, it was cold, not freezing, just cold although by the end of the 1 hour trick or treat time we were all freezing. This year we planned out route ahead of time because in our neighborhood, there are blocks were little or no candy is handed out, and other streets it's a race to see how fast we can get our candy. We left 10 minutes before TOT, had to pose for a photo before hand, then took our 8 TOT'ers & started off. Once our hour was up, we stopped for a free slice of pizza from the local pizza shop. After the kids ate thier slice, we headed back home for the fun of examining our loot. Each child had a larger sized bag almost full!! We had so much candy when we got back to the house!! Each child was allowed a few pieces before bed, what's Halloween when you don't get to fill up on junk??
We didn't get anything strange or crazy: assorted candy, chips, pretzels, can of pop & money.
Funny things:
My niece was told she didn't need a quarter because she was "too old to trick or treat", but was then given a quarter anyway. It was an older lady, but my niece is only 15.
Then, another person told my 12 year old daughter & 14 & 15 year old nieces that they were too old to be trick or treating when they are in college!!
And finally an irritation.......
Why do people feel the need to turn on lights & leave them on, when they are NOT home??? One house had about 25 steps & had lights blinding up from the road & NO ONE ANSWERED!!! Poor kids walked all that way for nothing!!
So, inconclusion, I hope everyone had a great Halloween :)
