I don’t ask this lightly! This home is pretty amazing …and I feel I have to prepare you for it…

Take a look here and come back and let me know what you think.

SCHOOL ME!

Is It Right…

…to pierce a baby’s ears?

This cute little chubster is about to get her ears pierced. Isn’t she gorgeous and squidgeable?

The parents who took her to have it done say;

‘It was suggested to us that we pierce her ears early so that she would not remember the pain.’

 

Another woman who had her babies ears peirced recently said,

Did she cry? Yes for a split second. Do I regret it? No.

β€˜My daughter loves her earrings and she sees herself as batman with pretty ears. It’s much easier to get them done as a baby than when they’re older. Fact.

‘She looks beautiful in her earrings, and she loves to change her earrings when mummy does and wears all different ones.

How many parents force children to go through painful cosmetic surgery on the NHS for vanity reasons? Is that child abuse too?

β€˜Port wine birthmarks mostly cause no problems but parents choose to put children through painful laser surgery for vanity reasons. Ears pinned back, another unneeded surgery for vanity. If you declare vanity as child abuse, at least roll it across the board.’

 

Personally, I had my ears pierced when I was a baby so I don’t remember anything, but is that the point? The women above talk about ear piercing as though it is a necessary life-saving procedure. Surely if the child wants their ears pierced they will do it when they are old enough as they do with tattoos and cosmetic surgery? And surely with the first mom’s logic why not get little Bubba tattooed early also…remember when we discussed the mother that DID do that here?

So is this really at best a vanity procedure for the mothers? And if it is, is it okay as it’s just a harmless little thing to make Mom happy?

Folks What Say You?!

I’m not 100% either way on this one, yet I was very decided about the baby who was tattooed. We pierced chublings don’t remember the pain of course but why is this even necessary?

The baby does indeed cry for only a few minutes and with a few jingling keys are distracted and the pain is more or less forgotten pretty quickly.

Have you pierced your little cherub?

Let me know…below! πŸ™‚

  1. You’re right The Ed, this is close to murder!

Cute Dog Helps Young Boy Find His Swagger!

This is Carter Blanchard from Arkansas USA. He developed vitiligo, a skin condition that gradually makes the skin lose pigment. He is 8 years old and his skin started changing whilst at school. The young ‘in was feeling very bad about himself and had told his mother that he hated his face and hated the way he looked.

That was until he met…Rowdy!

Rowdy was rocking the same look! He developed vitiligo the same year as Carter and the two met up and became the best of buds. Rowdy is a thirteen year old pure black labrador who showed Carter that 1. he was no longer isolated and 2. the vitiligo thing… it ain’t no big deal!

Carter’s mother says that no one else could have got this message through to her son to make him feel better about himself but Rowdy. πŸ™‚

Rowdy for president!

…And so we begin our foray through 70’s male fashion. Don’t laugh…this was probably your dad!3

Male nightwear. This is pure sex on legs!4

The leotard…I have no words….except for the wallpaper flower shirt and large collar! Yaaas! πŸ™‚2

Poor sheep. This is the 70’s so I’m guessing animal welfare was not at the top of the agenda.6 5

More leotardiness!…Actually I spot a join…it’s a 2 piece….the knowledge of which improves nothing.78

The men holding the pants sure are selling it! I actually wasn’t going to buy …until I saw them.9

The hat! πŸ™‚10

The pose. The unitard. The helmet hair. The legend. πŸ˜€11

The chicken sold this for me…and you?12

Yesssir! You SHOULD be proud.13

Why oh why aren’t male ponchos a thing today? And apparently you can play football in them too!14

See now I’m glad he wore the hat. Would have looked silly otherwise.15 16

The ‘hey what’s that over there?’ poses! πŸ˜€17

The blond guys expression and action man doll pose is everything.18

The belted cardy needs to return.20

Awful taste has no age restriction. I like that. It cleanses the soul.21

A round of applause please ladies and gentlemen for the ‘tache. God bless that man.22

A fine set of pork chops.23

What to wear for your next game of badders.

The guys on the left and right should be arrested for looking kinda ‘normal.’ No thank you. We don’t want that here! You may leave NOW!

 

Folks!

Can you see any of these making a come back? What were your faves?

Let me know below! πŸ˜€

Are You Scared Of Xmas??!!!

drk-sants

Here’s the thing. Deck the halls with boughs of holly and all that, but Jeez, that holly and all that decking is expensive! Not to mention the presents you’ve been strong-armed to buy via endless weeks of advertising.

Then there’s the cards for countless relatives that you have or haven’t actually spoken to in the last decade.

The food… did I mention the Xmas food yet?…The drink? Roughly a week of over indulgence has to be paid for by someone and if that someone is you…

Now’s the time to admit it…

ARE YOU SCARED OF XMAS??!!

Some of us are experiencing a great scarcity of greenbacks for any number of reasons right now, so as you watch the money trickling through your fingers as a result of Crazy Season does it bother you? Or are you one of those people who pretend it’s not happening until the credit card statement arrives in January?

What Say You??

  1. The Ed, have you never heard of saving for Xmas?
  2. The Ed, I’m a turn-a-blind-eye-until-January type. So sue me.
  3. The Ed, the cost is making me feel queasy. Times is hard guv’nor. *Sniff!*
  4. Merry Chrimble one and all! I don’t give a flying turkey. Life is for living. Joy to the world!

YAWN!! Should You Stay Married If It’s Boooooring?!

cwt-edt

UK celebrity couple, presenter Zoe Ball and DJ Fatboy Slim broke up recently as part of a spate of recent similar celeb ‘conscious uncouplings.’ This one stands out for the reason given for the separation. Zoe Ball apparently stated that she was bored! Brutal…but honest.

ball-and-slim

Predictably she was lambasted for it online with most of the internet crowd on Team Fatboy. But I have to ask, should anyone stay in a marriage that they are not happy with? For any reason? Who does that serve? The person who wants to leave? The one who knows the other wants to leave or the children caught in the middle?

Are we still saying that marriages should be kept past their usefulness and the couple should live in misery or indeed boredom for some old fashioned, cultural or societal reason?

WHAT SAY YOU?

  1. Yes The Ed you should do everything possible to keep a marriage together and I’ll tell you why you fool…
  2. No The Ed, folks should end the torture before they want to kill each other.
