A tribute to Natasha Richardson

This story just makes me feel so sad! I didn't know her I've seen her movies but I didn't know her likes and dislikes. I do know she left behind a family a husband and two children which breaks my heart. I hear she fell and was okay and hour later had to be rushed to the hosptial. That is scary, witnesses said she was laughing when she first fell and the next thing you hear she is in the hosptial and brain dead. I personally don't like skiing I remember going on a field trip in 6th grade and I couldn't get up every time, I tried to ski and I swore I would never go again (and I haven't)! I found this article about her entitled Doctor: Natasha Richardson May Have Suffered 'Talk and Die' Syndrome “I can only speculate, but it sounds like something we call the ‘talk and die’ syndrome,” said Dr. Steven Flanagan, director of Rusk Institute of Rehabilitation Medicine at New York University’s Langone Medical Center. “What this implies is that someone hits their head and they are seemingly OK initially," he told "But then they get a rapid collection of blood — usually called epidural hemorrhage — and that means bleeding between the skull and the brain. For the rest of that article go to,2933,509586,00.html Is skiing really safe should helmets be worn? I think if a person is new at it and inexperienced they should have to wear a helmet. That is really awful condolences to the family!

Barbie turns 50!!

Years ago I played Barbies! Unlike the girls today that are growing up to fast I was one of those girls that played Barbies until I was at least 13! My friend and I would go in my room and play all day long! My mom would have to get us to take breaks for lunch and dinner. I say I had over 30 Barbies of my own and the newest was always my favorite!I cant believe she turns 50 this year! Barbie has taken many hits during the years as an article entitled Barbie turns 50 by Elise Nersesian says because of her wrinkle-free with impossibly perky boobs (after all, she's never breastfed)! But lately Barbie gained weight in her waist and her breast size shrank, sending the message to parents that she would no longer represent unattainable ideals. Then in mense of all this she has sold over 1 million dolls. It is funny but growing up I never thought I want to look like her and despite all the jobs she had I don't ever remember ever pretending she was doing a job she was assigned to. Barbie is now a happy part of my childhood and when I think back it helps me remember happiness and imagination and isn't that what childhood is about. Now that I am older I collect certain Barbies and for a limited time you can Barbie for its original price of $3.00! (I got one from my mommy)!! So congratulations Barbie you sure look good for your age!!

Feeling Sick?

(I copied this picture from my sister's page)!!
If it is not one thing it is another. First my son was sick with a fever for 4 days! I took him to the doctor and they said he had a virus and it was going around. A week later he feels better but still congested and coughing! Now my husband wakes up and cannot go to work because he has Bowel problems. Can we ever be well. So far I only had a touch of the virus (just stuffy) and I hope I don't want to get the Bowel problems. I try to stay healthy anytime someone in the family (or someone we know) has been sick I take an Airborne or an Ermegen- C! What is Airborne it is (according to their website) the best-selling herbal health formula that supports your body's immune system. It was created by a former second-grade school teacher, Victoria Knight-McDowell. Go to their website and it they will even send you a free sample And Ermegen- C according to their website is It offers 7 mineral acsorbates deliver 1,000mg of Vitamin C in a non-acidic formula that revs up your immune system. Tons of B vitamins give you natural, non-caffeinated energy.and it now comes in kid doses! Go to their website and they will even send you a free sample too (and it comes in lots of flavors)! If you think it is alittle pricey I have found CVS and Walgreens (and problary other drug stores) carry an off brand (which I get alot) taste the same for half the price. I don't know yet if it helps you NOT get sick but I know if you get you do you will not feel near as bad as the person who did not take it did because it boosts your immune system, That is how it worked for me!

11th Anniversary!!

We'll Saturday was the Hubby and I's 11th Wedding Anniversary boy how time flies. This year we decided to go to Derby Dinner Playhouse in Clarksville, IN. It is a really neat experience! First is the food buffet which gives you a salad bar and a selection of country foods like roast beef,green beans,carrots and a roll. There are also a few other selections of meat and vegetables. After dinner is the show we saw Lucky Stiff (kinda like the movie Weekend at Bernie's) but it has more twists! At intermission if you pay for it you can get a dessert my hubby and I paid in advance to get an anniversary cake then we got sundaes to go with it! I think it is a great deal you get to go to dinner and a show so I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for something romantic and fun to do!
