“If you can’t love yourself, how the hell you gonna love somebody else?” - RuPaul - - - - - - - - - - - “if by a "Liberal" they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people -- their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties -- someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a "Liberal," then I'm proud to say I'm a "Liberal.” - John F.

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 - - - - - - - - - - -

Snoopy Does The Shuffle!

Just when you think you've heard and seen it all; Out comes Snoopy dancing to LMFAO's "Party Rock Anthem".  Yes, you read that right, Snoopy gets down and dirty with his friend, Woodstock.  And he even gets Charlie Brown to join midway through the song.  But it doesn't stop there!   Surprise guests come on board and get down with Snoopy and the gang!

And I thought the Halloween House, the Ohio University Marching Band, and the Hamsters had it all down.  I was wrong!

Little Munchkin Passes Away

Slover seen on right
Who doesn't know of The Wizard of Oz ?  It's impossible not to know about it.  We watched it as children, and as adults.  Hell, Ryan even got me the 70th Anniversary Blu-ray gift box for Christmas last year.

Well, unbeknownst to me, Karl Slover, one of only four surviving little people who played the Munchkins in the movie died this past Tuesday. :-(  He was 93.

The four-foot-five Slover, one of the shortest men in the movie, portrayed not only the lead trumpeter in the Munchkins band, but also a townsman and a soldier. The little guy was born Karl Kosiczky in what is now the Czech Republic, the only dwarf-sized child in the family. According to The Washington Post, his father inflicted inhumane treatments to make him taller, burying him in the backyard, immersing him in heated oil until his skin blistered, and attaching him to a stretching machine at a hospital. Eventually, at the age of nine, his father sold him to a traveling freak show. In his 20s, Slover moved to the States and joined a vaudeville troupe called the Singer Midgets, its 30 members becoming the core group of movie Munchkins. Slover was paid $50 a week, a salary lower than Toto’s. 

Later in life, he appeared around the country at festivals and events related to the movie, and was one of seven Munchkins representing all the little people of Oz at the 2007 unveiling of a star dedicated to them on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. “He has a genuine immortality,” said 100 Years of Oz author, John Fricke. “Of the 124 little people, he’s one of the handful who got to enjoy this latter-day fame, to have people know who he was and be able to pick him out of the crowd in the movie.

How To Spot A Cat Person's Home

I think all of us can relate to this comic.  We have either been a cat owner or know someone in the family who's obsessed with them.  I for one, love cats!  We don't own any, because Ryan refuses to have a feline running around the house with our four chihuahuas.  And after they're gone, we are getting a pot belly pig.  DON'T ASK.

In either case, this is...

It's Purely Animal - Issue No. 35 - Bunny Letter Opener

Growing up on a farm, my sister and I had every pet imaginable. You'd think we were building an Ark. LOL. From ducks, pigs, cows, to chickens, dogs, cats, and yes, even bunnies! They were the most lovable pets ever!

With the amount of letters and bills we receive on a daily basis, I'm considering buying one of these.  

Well... I'd have to ask Ryan first.  Take a look at this adorable video.

Quoted - Demi Moore & Ashton Kutcher On Their Marriage

“It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that I have decided to end my six-year marriage to Ashton. As a woman, a mother and a wife there are certain values and vows that I hold sacred, and it is in this spirit that I have chosen to move forward with my life. This is a trying time for me and my family, and so I would ask for the same compassion and privacy that you would give to anyone going through a similar situation.” – Demi Moore to the Associated Press

“I will forever cherish the time I spent with Demi. Marriage is one of the most difficult things in the world and unfortunately sometimes they fail. Love and Light, AK” – Ashton Kutcher's response on Twitter
