My girl making waffles - I think


Wow, time flies when your getting old...

This is when my baby girl was about nine years old and she is making waffles, pancakes?

Oh, that crazy little monkey boy next to her is my adorable son. Whom I still call coco head (coco as in coconut - because all children are born with heads that are large than their bodies.)

Wish upon a star... don't let dream die



What is life without dreams?
Life can be hard and sometimes the only thing that keeps you sane is the dreams we keep in our hearts.

That with a little bit of extra time and some creative thinking I came up with this little youtube video to help promote my new book.

Let me know what you think.

No offense, but why are you showing me your Boobs, tata's or Breast!

No offense, but this man does not want to see your Boobs, tata's or Breast!

I apologize in advance but I am just going to say it: I do not need to see your breast, boobs, tata’s or knockers. Ok, please come to your senses.

I will admit that in my your it was a pass time and I probably would have gotten all giddy and silly if a woman popped out her breast in front of me and started breast feeding her child. Ofcourse, I am pretty sure that in that day and probably today as well – if said woman with her openly exposed boob notices several men staring at her “ample supple” life sustaining membrane – breast, she would scream bloody murder.

Don’t get me wrong. I’ve been there, seen that. I have been in public places where woman decided to or needed to feed their child and they did so. But they did so discreetly, covered and seeking to shelter the event from preying eyes. And even then I felt uncomfortable. It’s like a deer caught in headlights – you don’t want to look but oddly, for find the urge compelling you too. So you resist, you fight and then you wonder, why is she doing this. After all, again – if she caught someone looking she would be all over that poor soul for being a pervert who is looking at a woman who ‘openly’ is showing off her tata’s at everyone around her. Which brings me to why I bring this up?

Quietly enjoying the internet, seeking information on a topic I am researching am BLAM – boobs in my face. I was not online searching for porn, smut or anything of the sort. In fact I was on a local new site that was talking about politics and BLAM! There goes a baby suckling on a fully exposed breast with Mom smiling into the camera. What the Hell?

Let me get this straight – you call this a protest, exposing your breast?

It’s funny, people are talking about how people should be smarter with what they choose to do online, that your online presence will haunt you forever and may affect your future. But here are woman happily exposing their boobs for all the world to see. So I wanted to see what the protest was all about and this is just a sample of the article I read:

Attention-grabbing nurse-ins, organized public displays of breast-feeding, have become a popular protest tactic for women who want to improve the climate toward nursing in public. But some breast-feeding advocates say the events can do more harm than good.
“At best, they’re ineffective and at worse, they’re offensive and they make it more divisive,” said Deena Blumenfeld, 36, who owns Shining Heart Prenatal Education in Pittsburgh, Pa., where she offers nursing classes. “They make it easier to say, ‘See, look at how crazy these people are,’ rather than maybe, ‘Oh, breast-feeding in public is OK.’”

An ardent supporter of breast-feeding rights, Blumenfeld still nurses her 3 1/2-year-old daughter. But you won't find her latching on at a public protest.

Breast is best... for a protest?
By Lisa Flam @ Today.

So while I am reading about politics a jumbo advertisement pic comes out and shows me this woman with her boob exposed. Sure, the FCC or whatever agency out there would say – ‘well, there was no nipple so it’s ok’. But it’s not ok. What if I would have had my nine year old son with me? Or what about if in public a Mom decides to feed her child and pops out one of her membranes in front of my nine year old son? Is it ok? Oh, and what if he watches, will she smile or ask me to tell my child to look away. Hello people you’re in Public!

Maybe it’s because I am a man and I think logically. But if a woman walked out of her house with a boob hanging out… would any say anything or would we just assume she has kids. By the way – who breast feeds a child until their four or five??????

Upset and dismayed about my new book

Upset and dismayed...

That is what I feel after talking with a so called know it all.
As some of you know I wrote a book for my children about making money, managing money, managing time and becoming successful.

For Children how to become RICH Successful & do well in school

I am not a writer, never said I was and never studied to be a writer. But I did it anyway – for the love of my children, hoping to teach them and have it in a form they can carry with them (so when I am gone, morbid I know but just in case I ‘go’ before they fully mature); as I was saying: so they can carry with them in a physical book.
I thought it was a great gift idea and I took most of all the things I have been trying to teach them (drill into their tiny heads) and I put it into the book – in an age appropriate manner. So I was talking with someone I will not name as to how to promote and sell my book; it’s not like I am a celebrity or have access to one to easily promote my book.

So why did I get upset and dismayed?

Well, this individual confidently blurted out that my book will not sell, even if I had the hottest celebrity going around promoting my book. The reason it will not sell is, because people want fluff not substance. I knew what he meant but I had to ask: “what do you mean”?

He continued with: People do not want to learn, not even if they know they need it. They like being tickled, fancied, poked on face book but they will not take the time to sit and actually learn. They do not buy books to learn, they buy them to be entertained. And now with Ebooks new authors have to give books away for free just to have people take a peek at the work they do. You take all that into account and you are wasting your time.

At first I was upset. Upset that he thought I couldn’t do it. Upset that he believed that people what he with his “innuendo” called people stupid. I was upset that ….
I was upset that he could be right. That is when my “upset” turned to dismayed.
People are more attracted to fluff like twilight, hunger games and the sort. You can ask a child to read a 400 page Harry Potter book and they will with glee. Ask them to read my 112 page book about how to be successful in life and they probably would act like if I was a dentist pulling teeth.

Even if I gave my book away for free – would people, would children read it?

I want my children to succeed, to start now at this early age, to make the right choices in life for the right reasons. I want them to understand that they are more than what people say they are and that they have opportunities. Every child does. But how do you get them to understand this if all they care about is witches, warlocks, werewolves, demons and monsters.

Fun days, Sand Castle's and Dreams

Sand Castle’s, Dreams and Funny Days

Having fun in the sun where dreams and sand castles abound. It was a beautiful start to a new year; the temperature was about 65 degrees, as the suns brightly shun high in the sky. The family enjoys the blue ocean water, even if I did not – not a fan of freezing cool water.

I watched my children play in the ocean, play with the sand and I myself was entertained by the young man you was making elaborate sand castles just a few feet from where I sat. I couldn’t help but be oddly amazed by his work and the pleasantness of this young man as children, including my own child and nieces who wanted to ‘so call’ help.

sand castle fun

I couldn’t help it; I just had to go up and ask him if he was in some competition or preparing for a competition or was all this hard work for fun? I introduced myself and he told me his name was Rob. I overheard him say to another ‘inquiring mind’ that he was just visiting and was from Michigan. When I asked him why he was making the sand castles, for fun or competition, he replied – just for fun.

At first I thought that maybe he was a bit ‘ODD’ to put it nicely. Why would he go through all this work just for fun? But then I remembered that I do things just for fun – take for instance my blog www.yuthink.blogspot.com. I am not being paid to do this, I write and maintain this blog, with all the effort and hardship that comes along with it – for my own pleasure (and for you the readers).

But then I found out the truth. This young man is not odd at all, he is actually a genius. On the other side of this elaborate sand castle sculpture was a small handmade billboard in the sand: Paletta channel on You Tube (http://www.youtube.com/user/rjpalett). This young man was actually promoting his YouTube site and his other ventures. It was very interesting to see him interact with the many people who stopped to take pictures of his sand creation. I couldn’t help but admire him. It was a simple but ingenious idea.

This young man had worked on this sand castle for two days and at around 4 pm he was taking pictures of his castle and even made a small video clip for the ‘you tube’ channel. I had never seen one of these die hard you tube channel ‘stars’ in action before. Sadly enough when he was gone several children, including my own, starting… uhm, let’s just say: improving on his work. What really made me laugh was how people who were still passing by would ask these children “Did you build all of this?” and they would reply – “yes we did”. I wasn’t sure what was funnier, the fact that they lied trying to get fame, or the people who seemed to believe them.

If you want a good meal, great atmosphere and great service in siesta key, Sarasota Florida: try The Hub. I had a wonderful half rack of ribs. Brother-in-law had cod fish and lobster chowder, the wife had a bowl of ‘Camarones al Diablo’ ( shrimp jambalaya ) and the rest of the family enjoyed all their meals as well.

Making learning FUN & 6 yr old teacing me chinese ?


I just spent a fun fill two hours with my very smart niece. It was interesting to talk to this 6 yr old because one, I love her. Two, she is a pretty smart kid – she speaks English, Spanish and is learning Chinese. As the rest of my family slept the morning away (after effect of stay up all New Years Eve) me and my loving niece hade a small breakfast and she taught me some Chinese.

making learning fun

I’ve known for some time that she was learning Chinese and I have always asked her to give me tips, like how to say hello and etc. But this morning as I tried to keep her entertained and engaged I asked her about her school, her friends, and how to say puppy, cat, boy, girl, little puppy and little cat. She surprised me with her intelligence and her fluency in the words in which she was teaching this old man Chinese.

After spending more time with her as our time together moved from her teaching me Chinese to us impishly causing mischief with those who soundly slept (check out picture of us trying to wake up my sleeping daughter). We then spent time going over my New Years Eve picture’s on my cell phone with the wife joining after we abruptly woke her up. After having her abandon me to go off to play with my son, as all 6 yrs old should – I decided to do a bit of online reading: about children and making learning fun. This is some of things I came up with.

Model Learning Enthusiasm
Parents should show an interest in learning too. Children are very perceptive and will pick up on negative attitudes that parents have about learning math, grammar, science and so forth. Parents should rather exhibit curiosity and interest in topics and areas that the child is exploring.

Unleash Your Imagination
Being willing to see things in an offbeat or silly perspective can help keep the fun in learning. Try to find novel ways to be playful with a topic can aid learning (e.g. playing "What if...."). Creative ideas will anchor the learning into your child's memory and make it easier for them to recall it later.

Encourage Their Natural Tendency to be Curious
The reality is that children find learning fun right from the start; their excitement to learn new things is too often stymied by rules, restrictions, and inadvertent words of discouragement, even from well intentioned parents. Clearly, children are born explorers and optimists. Parents need to foster this natural curiosity rather than shutting it down. The way to do this is by guiding children rather than controlling them. If a toy gains their interest, find games to play using that toy rather than choosing a toy for them.
