The social networking sites can be fun and a great way to keep in touch with family and friends. However, I am becoming very careful about what information I tweet on the sites. There are so many people getting in trouble for pictures being posted, getting in trouble with law inforcement, work and family and friends for their tweets. So many people put too much personal information out there for everyone to read. People post when they are going out of town and have been robbed while they are out of time. Many perspective employers google or check the social networking sites for job applicants to get more information on them. A little bit of advice, use common sense when posting your tweets. Don't post anything you don't want to get into the wrong hands. Have fun!

I enjoy watching the Dr. Phil show. However, for months now, he has been working with the Dr. Phil family. Okay, when is it time to let the family learn how to work on their own problems? It's great he is helping this family, but there comes a time when you have to refer the family out to other professionals who may be able to help the family more than he can. It's becoming a reality show on Mondays. I am beginning to wander if this family is procrastinating on stepping up to the plate and help themselves because they think becoming regulars on the Dr. Phil show will maybe open some doors in the entertainment world and the Dr. Phil show is footing the bill for all their needs to get their life back on track. I am not knocking Dr. Phil, I watch the show almost everyday.

My 9 year was claiming to be sick this morning. Her tummy was hurting and she felt like she was going to throw up when she woke up this morning. But, as soon as the bus was out of site she was hungry for scrambled eggs, toast and sausage and seems to have a made a miraculous recovery and is feeling much better. Where do kids learn the "I'm sick" trick when they don't feel like going to school?

I was having a nice relaxing day and went to the spa today. From the moment I came through the door things went down hill. The dog pooped on the floor, something he very rarely does, the kids argued almost non-stop shortly after coming home from school and they didn't want to do anything I asked them too. By 5:00 they had managed to give me a headache after getting a massage, imagin that. God help me, I never thought it would be so hard to have children a year apart. They are constantly at each others throats and everything is a competition between the two of them, God please give me patience and help me raise these two children.

So many Americans buy foreign cars thinking they are getting a better car for less money. With all the Toyota recalls going on you would think it is time for Americans to invest in their own manufacturers. Toyota has had over 8 million recalls on their cars. Sorry to say all those Americans investing in foreign made cars, you had it coming. They bring our food and products from other countries and we have more recalls since they have been importing our food and products from other countries than we have had in American history. I have never understood the thrill about buying foreign made cars. Our jobs have been out sourced to foreign countries and millions of Americans have lost their jobs and people still haven't learned their lesson yet. People need to be more supportive of their own economy and stop making the other countries richer while Americans are becoming poorer. Support your own country buy American. Everyone's need to buy foreign is putting our americans out of work and our products and food are unsafe. Even the poor farmers are being put out of work. Proud to be a Ford driver.
