From Sippy Cups to Car Keys

I love this Statefarm commercial! It sums up the way parents feel perfectly. One day our kids are drinking from their sippy cups and then they’re asking for the car keys! Time does fly. Watch the commercial all the way to the very end for the hilarious…

Solid Gold Talent

They sure don’t make ‘em like that anymore! Solid Gold was TV show from 1980 to 1989 that featured the “solid gold dancers” (see photo) that performed jaw-dropping, awe-inspiring choreography for the top songs that week. OK, I might be exaggerating a tad there. I think…

American Midol

I’ve been a fan of American Idol since day one and I’ve been enjoying season seven a great deal. However, the news I just read is giving the producers a major headache and has left a sour taste in my mouth. I can’t believe what is…
