Being attacked by Rush Limbaugh is like being gummed by a newt. The current champion of the ad hominem argument has seen fit to reflect on me because I quoted what I still think is one of the funniest examples of white-backlash thinking I have ever come across.
This is a direct example of her size, the white dress she wore in The Seven Year Itch was recently auctioned off and was put on a mannequin that was a size 2, but they were still unable to zip up the dress as the mannequin was too big

i find it slightly bemusing the emphasis white folks put on skinny shapes, and especially this one person. I have seen other white stars from the 50s and she is NOT the hottest.and none of them meet sir mix a lots nor my criteria, you gotta have back!!!!.
I would suggest implementing some white elephant gift rules like the three-swap rule where a gift can only be picked 3 times. This will keep your guests from fighting over the same gift the whole game.

Hi there....not sure what I am looking for, maybe it is just to vent my frustrations, so thank you for being my sounding board. I have 2 boys, 11 and 8...both are polar opposite, the older has been a handful from day one and the younger has never been like that. I embrace the differences, but my oldest knows what buttons to push and he pushes them frequently. He is also and extremely sensitive boy...takes everything to heart...internalizes his feelings, does not let us know something is bothering him and that's when we (my wife and I) get the backlash. Last night it all came to a head. He had a great group of friends and they all recently got phones. We have decided to wait until his birthday (sept 1) to get him his phone. He will be going into middle school and we thought at this point it would be good for him (and us) to have a form of communication. Well, since his friends all have phones now, they turned on him, are making fun of him and are just generally being mean. We try to explain that friends will come and go, that kids will be mean, that if they treat you like that for not having a phone then they weren't your friend to begin with. We try to say all the right things, but he's 11 and lets face it, when you are 11, friends are very important. So, back to last night....he was at a sleep over the night before and I know he does not do well with little sleep so this was a factor...also with the stress of needing to work on a summer school project coupled with his lack of sleep was a perfect storm. My wife was trying to help him with his project and he literally exploded. Lunged at my wife, wife had to push him away, he kept coming, she pushed him again, he kept coming, she had to push him down and restrain him...this was all happening when I was working in the basement and also happened in front of my 8 year old which really scared him. I came into the room to a firestorm of screaming/crying and general mayhem...I then restrained my son, and was so angry that he would actually try to hit/hurt my wife, his mother and I got in his face and in started screaming at him. This I know scared him and intimidated him, but I did not know how to handle this child that was full of rage. We sent him to his room, consoled our youngest son and all took a step back to regroup. Through all of this, we told him that getting his phone was "off the table", which then made the situation worse because the phone was his key to getting his friends back (which we know that is not the case, but you cant rationalize with an angry preteen.

There are multiple legends that explain the origin of putting gifts in stockings. Generally, they focus on the idea that Saint Nicholas wanted to help out a family. The family was worried before Christmas because they could not afford to buy their children gifts. Saint Nicholas tossed a contribution through their window in the night. The gifts landed in their stockings that they had hung out to dry by the fire while they slept!

It's obvious why one shouldn't wear white as a wedding guest. Unless it's a part of the dress code, it's considered rude and an attempt to upstage the bride. While no one will be thinking your kid is the person getting married (it's very common and popular to have the flower girl in a shade of white, cream, or light pink), it's better to err on the side of caution with light shades on the wedding day.

Once you go gel highlighter, you will never go back, that is a promise. Gel highlighters are WAY BETTER than regular high lighters because they do not bleed or soak through. They are not markers at all, they are made of a gel crayon sort of substance that glides on like silk. These are a must have for their stockings because they will LOVE THEM for reading and studying.
Why is it that although we see in color, a black and white photograph can have such unique beauty, drama, and even mystery? By showing us the world as we do not see it, black and white photographs let us perceive shape, form, and texture, light and shadow with a special, often dramatic clarity. This class will help you expand your photographic creativity as we explore what kinds of images may be most striking in black and white and consider several techniques for converting color images to monochrome. We will also look at the work of eight masters of black and white photography, with their own words about their work.
NOTE: This is a hands-on course. Students must have Adobe Photoshop on their home computers (Elements is fine) and will be provided with photographs to work on and detailed handouts. Also, those who just want to learn about black and white photography, and about some of the famous photographers in that medium, are welcome to join!
