Gotta Love some Andy Rooney

Andy Rooney's thoughts on women over forty: As I grow in age, I value women who are over forty most of all. Here are just a few reasons why: A woman over forty will never wake you in the middle of the night to ask, “What are you thinking?” She doesn’t care what you think. If a woman over forty doesn’t want to watch the game, she doesn’t sit around whining about it. She does something she wants to do. And, it’s usually something more interesting. A woman over forty knows herself well enough to be assured in who she is, what she is, what she wants and from whom. Few women past the age of forty give a hoot what you might think about her or what she’s doing. Women over forty are dignified. They seldom have a screaming match with you at the opera or in the middle of an expensive restaurant. Of course, if you deserve it, they won’t hesitate to shoot you, if they think they can get away with it. Older women are generous with praise, often undeserved. They know what it’s like to be unappreciated. A woman over forty has the self-assurance to introduce you to her women friends. A younger woman with a man will often ignore even her best friend because she doesn’t trust the guy with other women. Women over forty couldn’t care less if you’re attracted to her friends because she knows her friends won’t betray her. Women get psychic as they age. You never have to confess your sins to a woman over forty. They always know. A woman over forty looks good wearing bright red lipstick. This is not true of younger women. Once you get past a wrinkle or two, a woman over forty is far sexier than her younger counterpart. Older women are forthright and honest. They’ll tell you right off if you are a jerk, if you are acting like one! You don’t ever have to wonder where you stand with her. Yes, we praise women over forty for a multitude of reasons. Unfortunately, it’s not reciprocal. For every stunning, smart, well-coiffed hot woman of forty-plus, there is a bald, paunchy relic in yellow pants making a fool of himself with some twenty-two-year-old waitress. Ladies, I apologize. For all those men who say, “Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free,” here’s an update for you. Now 80 percent of women are against marriage, why? Because women realize it’s not worth buying an entire pig, just to get a little sausage.

Taken Too Soon

Our nation mourns the tragic loss of twenty innocent souls and brave school staff who gave their lifes trying to protect them. My heart goes out to the family and friends of these victims taken too soon. God Bless! Saturday Night Live show had a fitting tribute to open their show last night that was very touching.

How Did We Get to This Stage of Violence?

Cannot believe what the world is coming too

"Michael Stolz apparently became upset when one of the dogs defecated inside the home. Stolz said he shot the dog and when his wife became upset and screamed, he shot her as well," Deaver said.

Teachers and Students

Okay I admit that I had a couple of crushes on some hot teachers but nothing ever came of it back in the seventies.  Todays world is something else though and one cannot read the news without coming across a student and teacher relationship.  Are they all true? Maybe or maybe not but most have been caught redhanded.  After reading about another accusation close to home I was curious and did a Google search regading this topic.  I almost fell out of my chair when the results popped up for a large number that were very recent events.  The question I have is the cause of this high number of relationships and are they just now getting reported or seen due to the internet.  Is it due to the teens growing up today looking to the teacher for more than classroom learning?  Is it the teacher becoming easily attracted to a 15-17 year old that looks more like a 24 year old in appearance?  Whatever the cause its becoming a very frightening educational system for both parties.

Side Note: Ran across the movie "Fatal Attraction" on local TV the other night.  Damn that movie scares me!

Next day read that a local 44 year old Dr. went to Iowa and confronted 22 year old ex girlfriend and her new boyfriend.  He shot and killed her and after shooting boyfriend he killed himself.  Leaves behind a wife and kids and griefing family and friends of girl he killed.
