Study Reveals That Away-Facing Strollers Cause Babies Stress

A study by Dundee School of Psychology in London, England found that children not facing the person pushing them are more likely to exhibit signs of stress. Suzanne Zeedyk, who led the research said that "Our data suggests that for many babies today, life in a buggy is emotionally impoverished and possibly stressful." (How does one tell if a baby is stressed from being pushed improperly or stressed from hunger or soiled diapers?)
Zeedyk added, "Stressed babies grow into anxious adults."

Do We All Need Help
Anxiety is an umbrella term covering panic, depression, and multiple anxiety disorders. Drugs like Paxil, Lexapro, Cimbalta, and Wellbutrin are some of the medications prescribed to approximately 18% of all adults for relief. My point being anyone over the age of 30 years old was more than likely pushed around in a stroller of this type, since that was the only kind available so are we all suffering. If Zeedyk's study is accurate, then there should be more adults seeking relief. Is it that we are a world of overly anxious citizens and too stupid to realize it or is it another ridiculous study? Perhaps there should be an aerial spraying of Prozac to help those adults, who as children were pushed in their strollers facing the wrong way. In any case, it is just one more thing for which we can blame our mothers.

Welcome President elect Obama

We look forward to hearing your vision, so we can more better do our job.
--George W. Bush

Gulfport, MS

After eight years of listening to President Bush flub his way through the English language, what are comedians going to do for material.

75 or so days to a new administration. Welcome in the new admin with some great shirts and apparel and other items at the link below. Even Palin shirts (another comedic loss). Also kid, baby and pet clothing. Maybe the Obama family should have one for their dog!

Come visit our store on CafePress!

A Trip to the Social Security Office

A visit to our government run Social Security administration office can prove how ridiculous some rules may be.

While the woman at the desk was typing my information I started to chuckle at the rules posted on the wall behind her. She said, "You're laughing at the sign aren't you." I cannot tell a lie. "Yes." Apparently I was not the first.

I was not permitted to take a picture but it states:

"WARNING: It is a federal offense to kill, kidnap, assault, or intimidate federal employees while they are engaged in official business."

Does this mean that it is acceptable behavior if they are not engaged in "official bussiness" ?

Quote of the Day

According to a new medical study, barbecuing is bad for your prostate.
Well, I'm glad they got this out in time. I was going to barbecue my prostate this weekend. I had no idea it's bad for you. -----------Jay Leno

School Pictures


My eight year old son came home with an order form for the second round of school pictures. This is for the folks who either didn't like the first set in the beginning of the school year or were absent that day. I found it rather amusing and had to share.
Perhaps these were the leftover forms from "picture day" at the nudist colony!
Pants for elementary students are only RECOMMENDED ...I would think it at lthe very least...um ... required.
On a positive note it is written in Spanish, so our Hispanic friends can get a laugh too. This is why copyeditors are so important.
