And you couldn’t have that special day the way your friends do – you know, wear the ring on your finger and have it mean the same thing as everybody else. Just put yourself in that person’s shoes. It makes me feel sick to my stomach …. When I shared a picture of my tattoo on my Twitter page and said, ‘ALL LOVE is equal,’ a lot of people mocked me – they said, ‘What happened to you? You used to be a Christian girl!’ And I said, ‘Well, if you were a true Christian, you would have your facts straight. Christianity is about love.’ The debate resulted in a lot of threats and hate mail to people who agreed and disagreed with me. At one point I had to say, ‘Dude, everyone lay off.’ Can’t people have friendly debates about sensitive topics without it turning into unnecessary threats?” - Pop star Miley Cyrus on her marriage equality tattoo - - - - - - - - - - -

Keeping It Old Skool: The Little Professor

I'm still in the process of putting together my regular segments on my blog and have decided to start a series on technology from our younger years. So to start this week's Monday segment of "Keeping it Old Skool," I bring you The Little Professor.  Oh yes,  I remember playing with this calculator as a child and losing all the time.  I hated the damn Professor.  Just kidding, I liked him, but those hard levels.. geez.  The calculator was not like a regular one, instead this one suggested math problems for you that could be solved through multiplication, division, addition, or subtraction.  I believe it came with some cards or a booklet and you were to solve the problems; if it was correct, you were awarded points which were shown on the red led display.

Check out the video, it's classic :-)

How Cute Is This?

Because we all know there are plenty of smart people in the world. A 4 year old girl in sunglasses takes control of a motorcycle, and rides India's highways with Dad sitting behind her.  I know, the shock and horror that must be running through your mind.

Alex Pettyfer Loses It!

So yes, beautiful Alex Pettyfer took off his shirt on Ellen this past week, and everyone went gaga over it.  Well me too, but that doesn't count. :-)

OMG Hilarious!

Superman Returns! Wait... it's a reboot.

Take a look at your new Superman!  Warner Bros. made an announcement over the weekend on who would be the next man to don the blue tights and the red cape, and it's Tudors star, Henry Cavill.

"In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time, and I am honored to be a part of his return to the big screen. I also join Warner Bros., Legendary and the producers in saying how excited we are about the casting of Henry. He is the perfect choice to don the cape and S shield," said the film's director, Zack Snyder.

Dallas Television Series Will Return!!!

I know this may sound cheesy, but I'm excited about the upcoming reboot of Dallas on TNT!!!  That means Ryan and I need to finish watching Seasons 12 & 13 of Dallas. LOL.

When I learned they were going to make a Dallas movie a few years back, starring John Travolta and Jennifer Lopez, I was excited; but not until they ruined it by saying they were going to make a spoof of one of the most popular television series of all time.

The new series is to focus on Bobby and JR Ewing's sons (Christopher and John Ross Ewing), and their circle of friends, with three original stars heading back to the Ranch.  Patrick Duffy (Bobby Ewing) and Linda Gray (Sue Ellen Ewing) are almost certain to return along with the possibility of Larry Hagman (JR Ewing), who's still negotiating a contract with the Producers.

I know Ryan's thrilled too :-) Right babe? he he.
