Economy Fixed with This Plan!

Tuesday, August 18th, 2009

This is from an article in the St. Petersburg Times Newspaper on Sunday.

The Business Section asked readers for ideas on “How Would You Fix the Economy?” I think this guy nailed it!

Dear Mr. President:

Please find below my suggestion for fixing America ‘s economy.

Instead of giving billions of dollars to companies that will squander the money on lavish parties and unearned bonuses, use the following plan.  You can call it the Patriotic Retirement Plan:

There are about 40 million people over 50 in the work force.  Pay them $1 million apiece severance for early retirement with the following stipulations:

  1. They MUST retire. Forty million job openings – Unemployment fixed.
  2. They MUST buy a new American CAR. Forty million cars ordered – Auto Industry fixed.
  3. They MUST either buy a house or pay off their mortgage – Housing Crisis fixed.

It can’t get any easier than that!

If more money is needed, have all members of Congress and their constituents pay their taxes…

Now, I’m not a huge sports fan, by any stretch of the imagination…but I would pay to see these girls perform.  I know they’re doing this for a half-time show during a basketball game, but they deserve the credit for being great athletes in their own right.  These girls are impressive!

Okay, I just read this article and have to say I’m totally AMAZED!  I was impressed when I thought these girls were college students–but they’re NOT…they are grade school and junior high school students!  Wow…just wow!

Kristen Hall, now a senior at Kings High School and a former Firecracker of four years. “It really helped me grow and it made me more comfortable about my self-esteem after performing in front of thousands of people.”

The team has performed in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, on the Late Show with David Letterman, at a Chicago Bulls game (as well as many, many college games), and in the 2005 Presidential Inauguration Parade in Washington DC.  And to think…it all started because one teacher was creative and cared enough to open up another sports team opportunity for girls that she was given responsibility for!

Kudos to Coach Lynn Kelley for making a HUGE impact on these girls lives and being a great role model!  We need more teachers like her!

Check the Kings Firecrackers Website to see if they are performing near you!

Getting Fit While Blogging

Monday, March 9th, 2009

I found a very interesting article today about getting fit while blogging.  It’s a little cheeky, but some good ideas, nonetheless.  Each point was given an internet-appropriate title, such as:

9. Blogger Breather – Grab a quick minute to just close your eyes and focus on your breath. Count to 10 as you slowly inhale through your nose, thinking positive thoughts. Exhale through your mouth, again counting to 10. This time release all the tension and stress out of your body. Repeat if you have a few more seconds.
