"Breakfast At Tiffany's"

So this blog is definitely on the lighter side compared to my last two. But I thought it would be entertaining. Tiffany's probably the most popular jewelry store in the world!! And definitely became even more known with Audrey Hepburn's "Breakfast at Tiffany's" in 1961.

And now with stores worldwide you can find Tiffany's in any popular tourist destination city. But what makes Tiffany's so special? Is there jewelry and diamonds really any better then any other fine jewelry retailer? Or is it just that it's Tiffany's and you want that famous little blue box? But is it really worth all that fuss? You could get just as good of a diamond with just as perfect clarity from many other fine jewelry retailers for half the price. And that sterling silver necklace you bought from there was it really all that worth it? To have the famous Tiffany's heart that most people will just assume is a knock off. Or if you get something that doesn't scream I got this at Tiffany's and you spent double the price and you don't get the attention of going and buying it at Tiffany's, and could of gotten something just as nice elsewhere.

All of these arguments could be well argued and have been herd for years. But in my own personal opinion... it's like some people might say why buy that 100,000 BMW? When you could buy a nice running reliable car for less then half the price? But to me Tiffany's is my BMW. And that blue box and what's inside is worth every penny!

Tiger Woods... Is he to blame? Or the other women?

Over the past few weeks we have been hearing allot of about Tiger woods and his infidelities. And what I have been thinking about is the other women. What kind of a woman cheats? Why don't single women have the respect for there fellow sex to stay away from there husbands? This is the question I would love to have an answer to!

I am a single women and I can tell you right now I would never ever cheat on a married man!! I know some people say "never say never". But it seems to me people should make commitments to themselves such as this and write it down. Because sometimes you have to make that commitment to make sure it never happens.

Why is it that women do not have more loyalty to each other! I see it as were all sisters out there and we need to watch out and protect each other. Think of your best girlfriends and if they were cheated on? I can tell you right now I would make that man's life a living nightmare! And why is it that women are not being more persecuted. One of Tigers many flings (I'm not going to mention her name) just got a spread in MAXIM magazine.

What is this were saying; good for you! You had sex with a married man so let's condone it and give you a spread in a magazine!! What is this saying to everyone? Go find yourself a marred man and if he's famous you may get rich off of it? And when your friend gets cheated on and you see the hurt and you know you have been one of those other women. How can you live with yourself? And Carma, what goes around comes around. So when it happens to you, don't even get upset because you have no right. Women let's stand together as a united sex. The men do not have control and do not let them manipulate you. Don't become that kind of girl. Have morals, propriety, and respect for yourself.

Honestly if I could change things affairs would be against the law and there would be jail time and a serious fine. Because our society needs to learn that this behavior is not acceptable. So have respect for the sacredness of marriage. And if you our married work hard at it and don't give up. You made a commitment and I truly believe it's possible to be happy with ONE person for the rest your life. So don't go interfering with someones marriage!

Christmas...Not "Happy Holidays"

So this is my first blog post!! It's Pretty exciting. And with Christmas being 10 days away I thought I would start with something that went with the season. The following was written by Ben stein and recited by him on CBS Sunday Morning Commentary.

"My confession: I am a Jew, and every single one of my ancestors was Jewish. And it does not bother me even a little bit when people call those beautiful lit up, bejeweled trees, Christmas trees. I don't feel threatened. I don't feel discriminated against. That's what they are, Christmas trees. It doesn't bother me a bit when people say, 'Merry Christmas' to me. I don't think they are slighting me or getting ready to put me in a ghetto. In fact, I kind of like it. It shows that we are all brothers and sisters celebrating this happy time of year. It doesn't bother me at all that there is a manger scene on display at a key intersection near my beach house in Malibu . If people want a creche, it's just as fine with me as is the Menorah a few hundred yards away. I don't like getting pushed around for being a Jew, and I don't think Christians like getting pushed around for being Christians. I think people who believe in God are sick and tired of getting pushed around, period.

I have no idea where the concept came from, that America is an explicitly atheist country. I can't find it in the Constitution and I don't like it being shoved down my throat. Or maybe I can put it another way: where did the idea come from that we should worship celebrities and we aren't allowed to worship God as we understand Him? I guess that's a sign that I'm getting old, too. But there are a lot of us who are wondering where these celebrities came from and where the America we knew went to. In light of the many jokes we send to one another for a laugh, this is a little different: This is not intended to be a joke; it's not funny, it's intended to get you thinking. Billy Graham's daughter was interviewed on the Early Show and Jane Clayson asked her 'How could God let something like this happen?' (regarding Hurricane Katrina). Anne Graham gave an extremely profound and insightful response. She said, 'I believe God is deeply saddened by this, just as we are, but for years we've been telling God to get out of our schools, to get out of our government and to get out of our lives. And being the gentleman He is, I believe He has calmly backed out. How can we expect God to give us His blessing and His protection if we demand He leave us alone?'

In light of recent events... terrorists attack, school shootings, etc. I think it started when Madeleine Murray O'Hare (she was murdered, her body found a few years ago) complained she didn't want prayer in our schools, and we said OK. Then someone said you better not read the Bible in school. The Bible says thou shalt not kill; thou shalt not steal, and love your neighbor as yourself. And we said OK.Then Dr. Benjamin Spock said we shouldn't spank our children when they misbehave, because their little personalities would be warped and we might damage their self-esteem (Dr. Spock's son committed suicide). We said an expert should know what he's talking about. And we said okay..Now we're asking ourselves why our children have no conscience, why they don't know right from wrong, and why it doesn't bother them to kill strangers, their classmates, and themselves.Probably, if we think about it long and hard enough, we can figure it out. I think it has a great deal to do with 'WE REAP WHAT WE SOW.'

Funny how simple it is for people to trash God and then wonder why the world's going to hell. Funny how we believe what the newspapers say, but question what the Bible says. Funny how you can send 'jokes' through e-mail and they spread like wildfire, but when you start sending messages regarding the Lord, people think twice about sharing. Funny how lewd, crude, vulgar and obscene articles pass freely through cyberspace, but public discussion of God is suppressed in the school and workplace. Are you laughing yet? Funny how when you forward this message, you will not send it to many on your address list because you're not sure what they believe, or what they will think of you for sending it. Funny how we can be more worried about what other people think of us than what God thinks of us. Pass it on if you think it has merit. If not, then just discard it... no one will know you did. But, if you discard this thought process, don't sit back and complain about what bad shape the world is in. My Best Regards, Honestly and respectfully, Ben Stein"

When I herd this I loved it. I thought it expressed alot of my feelings perfectly! And I just want to say I wish you all a Merry Christmas! And all that means from me is I hope you are all happy in all your endeavors. And may life take you where you want to go. so please don't take it personally like were trying to shove religion at you cause that is simply not the case.
