In fact, hugs all around! If you have read this, consider yourself hugged!

Easy to be stupid filling out guv'mint paperwork...hard to be silly. I got the stupid part down.

And we started our organizing for Relay for Life today.

Thanks, everyone. Violet is doing much better and so is "Mom". She never holds a grudge and so I have forgiven myself as well.

Thanks for the pictures, Dave. She loved them....Honestly, she licked the monitor!

Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. What has me growling? Rude, stupid kids who should have been taught better and who are old enough to know how to be respectful.

My grandson Andrew had posted a picture of him with a huge bacon cheeseburger on Facebook (the one I posted in the thread about my grandkids). I commented on it, asking how he fit that huge thing in his mouth.

Today one of his (I assume) school friends made a rude comment in response to mine, with sexual connotations (about Andrew). He probably didn't know I am Andrew's grandmother, but it probably wouldn't have mattered to him (my picture was enough to let him know I wasn't a kid). My daughter had a few things to say to him (She was MAD!) and she deleted his comment.

I am so thankful that not all kids are rude, but the ones who are sure do irk me!

I had the same type of problem when I would comment on my nephews pages. I finally told the bouys to call me or e-mail me if they wanted to keep in touch, I wouldn't subject myself to their pages and friends anymore.

Fortunately most of his friends are ok. Also, Nancy keeps an eye on both of the kids' FB accounts to make sure everyone is playing nice. I let people know that I won't tolerate bad stuff on my page either, since my grandkids can see my page, plus I don't want to see that stuff either.

My main irritation with this whole thing is that a 12 or 13 year old kid would think it is acceptable to talk to an adult that way. I have heard kids even younger than that saying things like that to an adult's face. Too many kids today are being raised with no "filters," and with no sense of wrongdoing. It made me absolutely sick to see Roseanne Barr on a show not long ago, saying that we need to let kids do whatever they want to do and to not discipline them, then laughing about her 5-year-old grandson asking her fiancée if he really wanted to "have sex with an old lady like my grandma." She thought that was cute, and so did all the others on the show.

Aaargh! I'm going to raise my blood pressure if I think about stupidity like that. I will never understand some people!

Barbara, I'm so sorry such a cute picture of your grandboy caused such a ruckus. My vent is about Facebook in general, and both kids and adults throwing away any good sense with the written word. I've made it a point to stay far away from the garbage that goes on there, or I'd be madder than a wet hen all the time. "Social Network" my foot!! Grrrrrrrr
