The good news is that my favorite niece has just landed a job, in her chosen and preferred field, in graphic design in Virginia. The bad news is that she will be moving far away and she is 4 months pregnant. I am happy that she is going to be doing something that she loves and has worked very hard at, but I am totally depressed to think that I won’t play as big of a role in the new baby’s life as I was expecting and looking for to doing.
I just love babies and there really aren’t any “babies” in the family right now. Don’t get me wrong there are numerous family members that certainly act like babies and many that are treated like babies, but that is a whole other story for some other time. Right now I’m trying to deal with the fact that she (mother and baby) will be far away and I’ll only see them a few times a year, if that….
Mesothelioma Cancer seems to be a popular topic of legal commercials lately. I don’t normally watch a lot of television, but I have noticed that almost every time I do watch a show there is at least one commercial that comes on from a law firm that is reaching out to people who either have or lost a loved one due to Mesothelioma and offering assistance for them to sue places for it.
To be perfectly honest I don’t personally know anyone (that I am aware of!) that has that form of cancer. But I have lost several close friends and relatives to a variety of cancers, and it is heartbreaking to watch them go through radiation and chemo and end up dying anyway. I think that anyplace that mines or sells asbestos should stop immediately and make reparations.
I am glad, however, that science has found out that asbestos does cause it, and that companies are making an effort to control and contain it, to minimize the possibility of exposure to the general public. That is nothing to be ignored!
It was bad enough to have gone into our local Hallmark Store during the first week of August and finding them putting up their Christmas ornaments, but now on the Hallmark Channel they are showing commercials for their up and coming Christmas themed movies. This is just ridiculous and I’m seriously thinking of contacting them and giving them a ear full. There is plenty of time for all the Christmas junk, there is just no need for this kind of advertising while it is still Summer!
Placing an interesting Infographic, put out by Schuler Shoes, here today that I thought others might enjoy and learn some interesting things along the way about comfort shoes for men and women history. I have always been a shoe fanatic. It’s always been all about the shoes! As far as I’m concerned you I just can’t have enough shoes, my closet is overflowing with all kinds of footwear. But I’ve never really had an interest in learning about the history of shoes, so I have found this information pretty enlightening. Makes me want to go out and buy a new pair or two or three……..
Is it true that the movie theatre that the Colorado tragedy happened is going to close? That is so sad. I can understand why from an emotional point of view, but it is still so sad that the actions of that crazy murderer has also ruined that business. My hubby tells me that he heard that on the news, and also that the apartment building that he lived in is being quickly vacated by all of the residents.
How in the world are those businesses going to be able to recoup their losses? Their business insurance is unlikely to pay anything for this incident. I read online that one of the families of one of the victims is going to be suing the movie theatre for insufficient security measures. This incident certainly will encourage movie theatre owners to review their security measures, but are the security measures taken at this particular theatre any more lax than any other movie theatre?
