Breaking my own rule...

As a rule, there are two topics I don't blog about: religion and politics. I don't blog about it because it's not my place to force my opinion or beliefs on anyone else. Today, I'm breaking that rule because last night, I saw a story on the BBC news that I couldn't believe - South Dakota OKs ban on Abortion - I'm shocked, saddened and horrified by this! There are certainly more states throughout the country that will follow suite and I can't believe this day has come! What happened to separation of church and state?? That's what it's about to the politicians that are suddenly taking the rights of woman away - because of their religious beliefs they are ruining lives. The new law bans abortion even in cases of rape and incest! What the fuck is happening to America?? Maybe woman will have to start covering their faces in public as well and we'll start putting people to death for being atheists or believing in the wrong God. Laws like this, based on religious beliefs makes the US no different than the Islamic countries who's laws are based on religion. All while we are going around the world preaching about democracy and freedom! Democracy? Freedom? Was there a vote? It doesn't matter what our personal views are on abortion. It's not about weather it's right or wrong morally, it's about having the right to make the choice! I'm disgusted over this new law and if this is what's to come of the country I love, I may think twice about ever moving back because I will no longer be proud to be an American.

Top 20 Lists

Recently, a magazine here in the UK issued their list of their Top 100 women in show business. This sparked conversation between Wayne and I and one rainy weekend when we had nothing to do, we compiled our own Top 20 lists. The rules were we had to judge on looks alone (not their physique) and only one token model was allowed.
For fun, I thought I'd add our lists here for you to view and enjoy. Maybe it will even spark conversation between you and a friend or loved one.
Wayne and I actually had a really good time creating our lists together - judging each other's taste in the opposite sex and laughing over how long it took for us to prioritize our selections. We still change the order every time we look at it! (although our top five have remained the same)
Enjoy and feel free to comment!

Fight Club for Five Year Olds - Part 2

The other mother and I went into the school to meet with the teacher and the assistant head.  We both let them know how upset we were that we were not informed that our children were sent to the office and how much we were against the children being allowed to play fighting games on the playground.  I told them I wouldn't allow it at home and I'm really unhappy that it's being allowed at school.  They admitted it was a problem and explained that they are planning to introduce a a scheme to teach the children to play in a safe way.  They will be calling it 'Super Hero Training'.  They plan to give out capes & masks out to children who behave well as rewards at playtime.  They will have assemblies where they will teach the children to play fighting games without making contact.  I find this to be absurd.  The problem has gone on to long and I doubt they will be able to teach little children to change their games when they have sixty other children to look after o…

Feeling the rain

After I worked out today, I went into the kitchen for a bottle of water and saw the pouring rain out my patio door.  There are few times I can think of wanting to feel the rain more. Without a thought, I went out and stood in the rain.  English rain is cold, but today it felt incredible.  I live in a very public place, but in that kind of weather there was wasn't a soul in sight.  I thought about twirling, but the grown up in me squashed the notion. What I did do though was close my eyes and raise my chin toward the sky to let the rain fall on my face.  In my mind I slowed it all down and took it in.  I swear in those few moments I felt every drop. I've always loved the rain.  I  love the sound of it and like to open the windows and listen to it while drifting off to sleep on stormy nights.  Even as a child I would love to go out and play in. When I got older, I found it sensual and and dreamed of romantic moments that would play out under dark clouds, surrounded by grey tone…
