Hello all, it’s Friday, so it’s a chance to kick back and relax with a bit of frivolity. The first round is a prophetic blast from the past. Watch this Public Service Announcement, created back in 1995 by some cheeky, very sweet, and far seeing public school kids talking about this new fun invention: the internet (Okay, I couldn’t get the little preview window to pop up, that’s how “old school” these kids are).
Man, had we only listened to these kids from Helena, Montana we’d have been far more prepared when it comes to using the web as our shopping mall, our television and even our telephone. Meaning… we would have bought more Apple stock.
This next bit of weirdness is to acknowledge that August 16, is Madonna’ s birthday. What better way to celebrate than with Shaun Sperling. At his Bar Mitzvah, back in 1992 he celebrated his burgeoning manhood, with a tribute dance to our favorite blonde bomshell. He is a man, and now he can vogue.
And finally, please check out a wonderful piece written by a great writer and teacher, Lisa Hall Wilson. It describes the Breasts in Bedpans “incident” and is a great tale of learning lessons the hard way.
Have a great weekend everyone and see you back here next week.
Thanks so much for including my post and the fabulous shout-out. Let my humiliation be a cautionary tale for others – lol.
Thanks Lisa for sharing such a humbling story, it takes a lot of courage to show our weaker sides. I know it’s one of the toughest things for me to do. Have a great weekend dear. Oh, by the way, has your first born read your blog entry?
Go Madonna! I will check out Lisa’s post!
Hi Susie, ah Madonna. I have to dig up my photo albums. One year, for Halloween, I got dressed up as “Madonna and Child” it was hilarious.
I bet it was hilarious!
Wow – Shaun – that was – weird. He didn’t stop the entire almost 6 minutes either. Good for him.
Fun stuff, Rachel.

Hi Patricia, it was kinda weird, I wonder if he was also “coming out” so to speak at this event? Who knows, but it just boggles my mind the stuff that people post on youtube. Glad you had some fun today.
