Essential To Teach Children Manners

control-their-temper.jpgIt is not that Important until it is.

Teaching our children manners is an old fashioned idea that seems to have fallen by the wayside. Too harsh? Maybe that is a little coarse. So, let’s make it an easier pill to swallow. Our values have changed so much, that, what we discipline our children for and the manners we require of them, are less demanding than before.

Children will do whatever they please, that is normal. But, we do live in society, unless you do not. If you do, then you have to take steps to mould some of those wild instincts before they become destructive habits. [Read more...]

Gene Pool Clean Up!

Happy Birthday Charles Darwin

I love Darwin. But, my take on it is always regarding the Darwin Awards. Survival of the Fittest, meaning mentally in this case, takes on a whole different meaning, when you think of it in those terms.

There is nothing you can do, to stop some idiot, from killing themselves, by being stupid; thus removing them from the gene pool. Woo hoo! So much the better for us all. [Read more...]

Hand Gestures You Need to Know

Wave All Your Fingers at Your Neighbors Day.

Yes, today is another strange day, so kindly, wave at your neighbor. Not that way, even if you are mad, just use all your fingers.

Hand gestures have been a form of communication since man was on this earth. Without speech, we used hand gestures. Even with speech we still use our hands. Here are some ways that are good and some not so good ways to use your hands, but not today. Keep it for another day. Behave!

  • Clenched fist: is used as a gesture of defiance or solidarity.
  • Benediction and blessing: The benediction gesture is a raised right hand with the ring and little finger fingers touching the palm, while the middle and index fingers remain raised.
  • Blah-blah: The fingers are kept straight and together, held horizontal, while the thumb points downwards. The fingers and thumb then snap together repeatedly to suggest a mouth talking.
  • Check, please: This gesture, used to mean that a diner wishes to pay the bill and depart, done by touching the index finger and thumb together and “writing”.
  • Crossed fingers: are used to superstitiously wish for good luck or to nullify a promise.
  • Cuckoo sign: touched or screw loose. In North America, making a circling motion of the index finger at the ear or side of the head signifies that the person “has a screw loose”.
  • Middle finger salute: The finger is an obscene hand gesture used in much of Western culture.
  • High five: slapping the palms together.
  • Fist bump: just what it says for brotherhood.
  • Hitchhiking: thumb out.
  • Money sign: with thumb and two first fingers rubbing together.
  • Patience: thumb and next two fingers together and the whole hand is raised up and down three times in a sign of wait, be patient.
  • Talk to the hand: extending the open palm away from you towards the other person.
  • V sign, peace: index and middle fingers lifted up in and open.
  • Thumbs up: assent and approval.
  • Thumb down: means hate it, don’t approve or kill the contestant in the arena.
  • Shaka: sign of Hawaii salute, three middle fingers down, thumb and pinky up and waggle the hand.

Peter Pan, my eye!

Dear Baba Rumcake,

I screwed up, growing up. I can’t handle the world

I’m having some Peter Pan problems. Can’t face it.

But my parents, are too old to move back in with, and they didn’t really prepare me.

They did what they could. This introversion crap, was ok, in highschool, college, ok, but I’m 40. It’s just not cutting it, anymore.

Bratty in Baldwin

Bratty, Dude,
It may be true, but you are way overdue! After college, which is already late, there are no excuses for blaming parents.

Get on the stick! Get off your duff, stop the blame, and get a move on. Find yourself a niche. Find a life and get on with it, you, slug, you blaming, irresponsible excuse of a man.

Stop grousing, accept your culpability, and do the right thing.

Suggesting that you “cannot face the world” amounts only to one thing, you are a derelict, who does not want responsibility. Being delinquent when you are young, is not acceptable; but as an adult, it is criminal.

Peter Pan, my eye! That is an old excuse that has been over used and chewed upon to death. At least be creative, finding a more decent excuse for using your parents.

Or, find yourself, a Sugar Mama and keep living like a ‘hang on’, a zit, on the face of humanity.

Grow up, quickly!

Blessings! Wishing you a swift kick in the ass,

Baba Rumcake
