Pros and Cons

A Pro is.... we have a winner!!!.. for the book "Before Ever After".     The Fifty Factor 
Congratulations!  I'll get it right out to you.  Good timing now that she is counting down work days to more free time.

A Con is..... some of the CoHosts on my new favorite daytime talk show, The Talk,  were fired by Host, Julie Chen. Whatever Julie wants, Julie gets seems to be the common thread I've been reading. Her husband is Network President,  Les Moonves.  Gone are Leah Remini and Holly Robinson Peete.  Those two have been replaced by Molly Shannon ( yeah, really) and Sherry Underwood. ( I 've never heard of her either.)  

The biggest disappointment for me is the absence of Sharon Osbourne, being replaced by Kris Jenner, Mom of all those Kardashians.  From what I've researched, Sharon wanted out and is reducing her time this season to 6 or 8 (depending on what you read) shows and then she's out.  So I'm out too.   I'll have to find a new favorite and right now I'm liking Anderson Cooper. I really enjoyed the show with his Mom as his guest.   We'll see how long that lasts.

Another Pro is that the American hiker/spies were released in Iran on Wednesday.  I've voiced my opinion on them before.  I've come to the conclusion they really were spies because if they weren't that only leaves stupidity as a reason for hiking along the border of Iraq (a war torn country) and Iran.... not so American friendly.  Regardless, I'm glad they were released. 

A Con might be 39 year old, Bille Joe Armstrong, lead singer of Green Day, getting kicked off a Southwest Airplane for having sagging pants. 

Southwest later did eat their words and off into the wild blue yonder he went.  I like Green Day ok enough,  ....He goes a little heavy on the eyeliner occasionally...but there are a couple of songs I really do like.  "Time of Your Life"    being one of them.

   My 2 younger daughters and I have been battling this one out on Facebook.    Their argument is that he is a rocker and has an image to up hold.  His argument was there are more important things to be concerned with than his britches hanging.  I have to agree with both of them.  So I thought about it. 

 The rockers I grew up with are still wearing their same "Rocker" attire... think  Mick Jagger, Steven Tyler, The Boss....  I think my point will be remembered when they are looking at 50, 60 and 70 year old butt crack in their golden years.

congrats to the winner; I don't watch much daytime TV (that pesky job gets in the way, LOL) so not familiar with The Talk show that you mentioned, but interesting Kris Jenner will be on it; seems she'll be busy between that and the reality show she's part of.

hope you have a great weekend!

When I read the Leah and Holly got "fired" or what ever Ms. Chen calls it, I quit on it. I am a big fan of Leah even if she can get a bit loud and obnoxious, I think she's pretty real. I hope she can find another venue.

I really like that Green day song.

Congrats to your winner--on winning the book, and on having more time to read!

I agree with you whole-heartedly about The Talk! I stopped watching it, too! I hope they pull the plug on it, because all the good people left! (I don't like Julie, either.) I even read that Kate (from Kate Plus 8) is going to be a guest hostess. UGH!

And no way can Kris Jenner replace Sharon Osbourne.

Ugh.. Kardashians.. any and all of them.
