How are things in NeverLand? I hope Captain Hook and Tink are behaving. :-)
The nephew has been taking a lot of photos to prepare for several photo contests. I've been "getting into the action" by taking my camera everywhere I go, and just playing around taking pictures. I thought I would share some with you. :-) I have actually entered the next to the last one into a contest. It is titled "Where the Heart Is". I'll let you know how it turns out. :-) Enjoy!

Sometimes I marvel at the level of stupidity some people have for stating the obvious. Especially when our tax dollars are spent on said "stupidity". Take this article for instance,
The opening remark in this article states, "NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - When children have sleep problems, their parents -- especially mothers -- often have sleep-deprived nights too, research shows. "
Did we REALLY need someone to research this? All they had to do was ask any mother who has ever stayed up with a sick child, restless child, etc... to find out that the mother and/or father did not sleep either. And since there has already been a study to show that you NEED sleep to function properly the next day the conclusion would just be a given. That leads us to know the mother was probably not a happy camper the next day, and the old adage "If Mama ain't happy ain't nobody happy" rings SO TRUE. This is one of those times when you just have to look at the person who asked to have this study done and think "MORON."

How are things in Neverland? Well, my brother and I were watching TV this evening, and he mentioned that his "ideal" woman would be a combination of the character "Nurse Gladys Emmanuel" from Open all Hours and the characters "Daisy" and "Rose" from Keeping up Appearances. (These are all British Comedies)
That got me thinking about what my "ideal" man would be if I had to base him on TV/movie characters. I, finally, came up with this combination: the sense of humor of Jim Belushi's character in "According to Jim", the voice, eyes and smile of George Strait's character "Dusty" in Pure Country, the ruggedness of Tom Selleck's character "Magnum P.I.", and the sensitivity and wisdom of "Mulberry", another British Comedy. :-) I don't think I'm asking for too much, do you? :-)
