The Calm Night for Me to Rock Out On!

Last night I decided that we all should go to the Chinn Center to watch the kids' swim lessons. Jonny didn't like it but his brother and sister have waited 3 to 4 hours watching him during gymnastics competitions. Jonny and I went to the library next door before we met back up at the Chinn center. I was upset because once again I turned in a book and the library didn't check it in. This has happened so many times and every time I confront a librarian about it they always look at me like I am nuts. That is until i prove that they didn't check my books in.

Viki is able to swim the length of the pool now and is doing a great job. I was so proud of her. Aron is learning to float on his back. I can tell he is still scared. Jonny fussed that he was bored the whole time. I took him to watch a racquetball game that was going on in another room.

We had taco night at home, one of the kids favorite meals. Aziz didn't want tacos so he cooked his own meal. It looked wonderful and Aziz did a great job. He used leftover chicken, pierogies,  and pepppers. It looked like a meal that I would have made and it took some creativity. I was real proud of him. The kids cleaned up the kitchen with no fighting.

Aziz and I played old 1990's music for the kids to show them that Lady Gaga is not original. We played Ace of Base and Madonna. It is amazing how much Lady Gaga copies Madonna. Watch a Madonna video from the early 1990's (during her sexual experimentation phase) and it looks almost exactly like Lady Gaga. If I was that desperate for money, I could have just copied Madonna and made millions? All I had to do was dye my hair blond and where weird clothes and sing about sex and Italy and be world famous? Oh,  yeah you have to kiss a girl to for the plan to work. Ask Katy Perry, it worked for her!

I am a cheerleader for bringing back classic rock. You know where music was dominated by bands who were accomplished at their instrument. You could make lists of the best guitarists, bassists, drummers and even vocalists. Those old rock vocalists would beat out any pop singer any day.

So I gave my kids a music lesson and then sent them off to do their homework. It was a wonderful quiet night.

STUFF Clogging My Mind

I haven't blogged in a while. I never made it big in blogging and I never found an audience. I gave up and instead used Twitter as a way to express myself. I primarily used Twitter for about four years and even had my own little community. I had a few major retweets but was never famous or anything. I kept myself anonymous because I didn't want attention. I just wanted to express my feelings. A month ago I quit and it was one of the best decisions I've made. It was popular last year to say that 2016 was the worst year ever! It was a very strange year for me! I went through many challenges, new baby, c section, deployment, teenagers, a move, and ended the year losing my grandfather, I went into a deep depression and realized that I was spending sometimes 6-8 hours arguing with people on Twitter. I knew that couldn't help my depressed mood so I decided one day to quit. By day three I felt like a new person. I had more energy and I no longer felt hopeless. Instead of w

How to Attract Negative Commenters to Your Blog

I have been blogging since 2006 and one of the most interesting things is when this creature called a Troll finds your blog. A Troll is a bored scary little thing that goes through blogs, message boards, and You Tube comments saying mean, evil words creating a fight. If you've never had a troll visit your blog, it is easy to attract one. All you have to do is set a bait. Here is the bait that works the best. 1. Keep a "Conservative" blog. Extra points for being a member of the Tea Party. Trolls hate those who are Conservative and this bait successfully attracts the nastiest of trolls. Bonus points for misspelled words or bad grammer. You will suddenly get a comment about how Bush lied people died etc. 2. Write an anti- Obama post. My page views increased dramatically when I wrote a post against Obama, all were people trolling and questioning your intellect. It might not work as much now. Suddenly people will write comments questioning Bush or Reagan and how ra

The House of Ephraim and the Book of Mormon

The Bible is the story of the House of Judah. It is important because that the family that Jesus was born into. His mother Mary and her husband Joseph were both of the House of David and carried royal blood. It was important that the Bible be published for all of the world, but they aren't the only tribe. In prophecies the House of Joseph (Ephraim and Manasseh) are listed along with Judah. Ephraim and Manasseh were the major tribes and had the most members. Great leaders like Joshua belonged to the tribe of Ephraim. The Northern Kingdom was called Ephraim as the Southern Kingdom was called Judah. Ephraim is supposed to fight against and then unite with Judah. So where are their records? We have some remnants of their records in the Book of Chronicles. Before they were taken away to what is now Central Asia (Afghanistan, UZBEKISTAN, and Turkmenistan) by the Assyrians, they were given a chance by King Hezekiah of the Southern Kingdom to come to Jerusalem to worship in the temple
