We all grew up on Looney Toons, Tom & Jerry, Saturday morning cartoons – and old amusement park owners saying that they would have gotten away with it, if it weren’t for those meddling kids!
And if you were to sit down and watch those classic cartoons today – you’d see a rash of violence bestowed upon the characters to each other: faces blown off, coyotes plummeting to their deaths, anvils falling from the sky.
We’ve all heard the stories about how much money it costs to raise a child to 18.
Depending on the survey you’re reading, the number is going to be about the same: around $250,000. A quarter of a million dollars. All to raise a child, clothe them, educate them, feed them, buy them electronics and other “necessary” gadgets.
When it comes to language, the word “best” is often subjective.
What makes something the “best” when compared to everything else around it? Is your dad deserving of that “World’s Best Dad” coffee mug when compared to someone else’s father? While likely, there is a slim chance that somewhere in the world is a different parent who actually IS the World’s Best Dad.
As more and more states move towards legalizing marijuana, it’s natural that people who may not partaken of smoking a little bit of the wacky weed may try a little bit since they wouldn’t feel like they’re doing anything illegal.
We know a few vegetarians, and a handful of vegans too.
The vegetarians? We can deal with them. The vegans are a bit more difficult when inviting over for dinner, if you’re intermingling with non-vegans at the same meal. Sure, it can be done – you just have to be careful.
Then there are those vegan friends who are no longer vegan. While they were so adamant about sharing the vegan lifestyle with others, they weren’t quite as vocal about when they switched back to being a carnivore. Wish we had known that before we invited them back over for a meal.
