Read it, share it, tweet it, follow it...

Have you ever received one of those annoying chain emails? No matter how much you want to delete them, you still feel compeled to read them in their entirety:

Believe me.. this really works!! Just scroll down to the end, but while you do.. make a wish. Whatever age you are, is the number of minutes it will take for your wish to come true (ex. you are 15 yrs.old = 15 minutes). If you don't send this to 20 people in 20 minutes and if this 20 people don't sign up as followers, you will have bad luck for 20 years!! GO!!!

Paracord Stocking Stuffers.


Since we are big Jets fans, as you can see above, I figured I would take a few minutes this afternoon to make a couple of green and white survival* (friendship*) bracelets.
For one bracelet, I used about 5 feet of each color paracord so about 10 feet altogether. I also used a 3/8inch side release buckle to make it easy for them to put on and take off.
I hope they will wear them proudly when the Jets make it to the superbowl. Although, by then I might have to make some bigger ones, the kids will be all grown up!!


*The boys need to work on their friendship, the Jets on their season survival.

Here is also a picture of the watchband I made for myself a couple weeks ago. It goes well with this watch and got a lot of compliments.


I did not post a tutorial, there are so many ressources on the internet. Here are a few  very  useful links.

The Things They Say...

Me, this morning: "Guys, I cleaned up and organized your playroom, so please try to keep it this way until Christmas. Otherwise Santa won't know where to leave the presents if it's a mess."
Matthew: "Santa doesn't leave the presents in the playrom, he leaves them under the tree. Besides, last year it was messy and he left the presents anyway!"
Me: Sigh...

Yesterday, listening to WFAN:
Matthew: "Daddy, I'll never play for the Mets!"
Me: "What if they're the only team who wants you?"
Matthew: "I'll play for the Yankkes and I'll have a no trade clause."
He's not 7 years old yet and he knows about a no trade clause!!

It's ok to say...

I understand the need to be politically correct and that a lot of our vocabulary has changed and evolved. One is not blind, but is visually impaired, one is not mute but has a speech impediment ...
But aren't we pushing it a little too far sometimes? I remember a few years ago during Christmas time, a couple was leaving the restaurant I was managing, and as they exited I wished them a Merry Christmas. The hostess at the time reminded me that I couldn't say that and that being politically correct I should have wished them happy holidays. Of course I disagreed then and still disagree now. Why should people get offended because they celebrate a different holiday. If you want to wish a Merry Christmas, Happy Kwanza, Happy Hanukkah, Happy "whateveryouarecelebrating", go ahead and proudly do it.
After all, don't we teach our kids to repect and embrace our differences.
How about teaching by example.
