THERE HAS BEEN A THING OR TWO ON THE NEWS OR ON A TV SHOW LATELY THAT I FEEL TO MAKE A COMMENT ON. YOUR COMMENTS AGREEING OR NOT ARE WELCOME.
1. Michele Obama's school lunch program. This may surprise some of you, but I agree with her that we need better lunches in the schools. More healthy and nutritious. However, lately, there are schools that are opting out of the program and Mrs. Obama is putting the blame on House Republicans. All the news reports I have seen indicate that the students just don't like the lunches and wind up throwing them in the garbage, or just eating somewhere off campus. So what do the House Republicans have to do with this? I don't know, unless they are trying to revamp the program to fit what may be working. So, why is her program not working? Without actually going to a school and eating one of the lunches, I really don't know. Have the school age students been raised on a diet of Pizza and other junk food, so they just don't like healthy? Or is there something inherently wrong with what is being prepared in school cafeterias? Again, I don't know, but instead if making this a political item, perhaps Mrs. Obama needs to check on just what the problem is.
2. HGTV SMART HOME. Every year, HGTV builds a home somewhere and someone wins it. This year they are building a home in Nashville, Tennessee. A smart home. It has so many electronic gizmos in it that I can only try to imagine the maintainence budget. It has so much stuff and it is mostly controlled with a computer program. Just the touch of a button and you control the music, the TV, the window blinds and many other features that I won't even attemp to mention all of them. The host stated that whoever wins the house will be "living large" and once you see all this you will "wonder how you ever got along without it". UH! no I won't. I can't even imagine living in that kind of a home. I feel I would be a slave to the home. And I just DON'T need a TV in the shower. I just DON'T. Or much of any where else in the house, for that matter.
3. I ASSUME YOU SAW THE WEDDING OF KIM AND WHOEVER HE IS. No. Then you haven't been watching any TV. I watch very little and even I saw that on the news. The Wedding everyone is talking about. Well, no, I am not talking about it, well, except in this blog, and I do have some friends that I have talked to and none of them have even mentioned it. So, no, every one is not talking about it. Most don't even really care. Really.
