I am outraged to see the irresponsibility of Nadya Suleman’s, having the octuplets and putting the burden in California tax payers. Also, I truly believe the state should revoke the doctors’ licenses that agreed to inseminate her. What the hell were they thinking?
LAWS MUST BE CHNAGED AND PEOPLE LIKE HER SHOULD HAVE A MENTAL EVALUATION BEFORE EVEN THINKING ABOUT HAVING KIDS

As I get my email updates this morning, I read this article about Google Street View and it really makes me aware of all of the possible problems Google Street View services may pose to us, ordinary non-Googlers; or NOT- see this excerpt from the article …
“Oh, and if you believe as Google does that “complete privacy does not exist,” then you should check out the house where Google CEO Eric Schmidt reportedly lives using satellite imagery from Google Maps. It looks like he has had some construction done in the past few years. A simple Google search of the address (366 Walsh Road, Atherton, CA) will tell you that Schmidt merged two adjacent lots in 2001[viii] to create the new lot and then added a new fence, retaining wall, and drainage in 2004. Eric, that creepiness that you’re feeling is probably approaching the level of the people who had Street View vehicles in their driveways. So, while it is Google’s mission to “organize the world’s information and make it accessible and useful,” the company should thoroughly consider how that information can adversely impact the same people it is meant to help.“
So, I used to think it was kind of cool to have a picture of houses and places right on my screen; but I guess I don’t really think it’s that great when it’s my house plastered on the screen of the entire world. Not that I have anything that would potentially bring me a terrorist attack, but maybe neighborhood thieves could make use of Google’s free service. It’s like Google is saying… just come and see all over your favorite neighborhood, take your pick then mark your targets – we have done all of the leg work for you; right here on the computer. Enjoy!
Well, I guess when you are 30 something, or more like late 30’s you enjoy a Saturday night in and even better, a Baking Saturday night in!!! At least last night was what I felt like. Around 7 pm I had the urge to bake a wheat bread, my first time aking bread and I never thought I would like. But, I found an easy recipe at http://www.tammysrecipes.com/homemade_wheat_bread and decided to try. At first, I was like hum I have to let it set twice, once for 40 min then for 30 min, it would be to late by the time it was done. But, no, it worked out perfect, because I also decided to a Super Bowl Brownie for my husband. So, in between bread dough resting time, I was working on the Super Bowl brownie.
I am not much of bread maker fan but since I have a bag of whole wheat flour I decided to to make some wheat bread, and it came out delicious, just like the picture on the original recipe site. It taste really clean and fresh. I love it! I might just keep trying different breads now; we’ll see. I know I will make at least two more loafs to finish the wheat flour. Check out my beauty…
