My Little Tiger ( Mizzou Style)

My grandson came over ready to watch the Missouri Tigers in the Elite 8 play against the Uconn Huskies. He was in the team spirit with his Mizzou attire.
Alas, the Tigers did not advance to the Final Four--as you can see by his more subdued picture.
We had fun though--spending the night at Grandma's!

What in the Heck is a Bumbo?

I'm flabbergasted at all the new products available for families with babies. Things that weren't around 20-30 years ago. Who thinks up these things? Take, for instance, a bumbo. When my daughter told me she had a bumbo, I replied like any good grandma, "What in the heck is a bumbo?"

A bumbo is like a chair made for babies who really can't sit yet. It supports them and helps them to at least look like they are sitting. The bumbo is made up soft, spongy material. Stronger than foam rubber yet malleable.

We put Dane in the bumbo to feed him. I have to is a pretty good invention!


The number 21 is significant.

* To drink alcohol legally in most areas of the United States, you must be 21 years old.

*Years ago, you had to be 21 to vote. Now they have lowered that age to 18.

* If you are playing BlackJack, you definitely want a 21.

This week I found a new significance about the number 21. I was flipping through the channels with my remote and I landed on the Home Shopping Network. The somewhat famous Dr. Rey, a plastic surgeon from the reality cable TV show Dr. 90210, was promoting his new products -- girdles and shapers.

* The measurement between the jugular to the nipple should be 21 cm. Furthermore, gravity begins to lengthen this measuremenr by the age of 22.

21 cm! That is less than the length of a ruler.

Now I know what you are going to do. Curiosity compelled me to go get my ruler and see what my measurement is and I bet you will do the same. Let me warn you though, if you are over age 22 you may get depressed.

I know I did.

Blogger Vs. Yahoo 360

I blog about as much on Yahoo 360 as I do here. That's not saying much. Literally.

When I first began blogging on Yahoo I did it pretty consistently. But then Yahoo began to change and rumors of its demise were rampant. People began leaving and going to various other blogging sites. I finally jumped the ship as well and came here to Blogger.

On Yahoo though there is/was community and checking blogs was somewhat an easier task. Perhaps it is because Blogger has more members that community is harder to achieve.

Anyway, it now seems that I neither blog on Yahoo or here. I want to though. I actually think the software here is more versatile.
