This mornings song – Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah

2006-09-21

While we were getting ready for work today, this was the song of the morning that Rob was singing, and it dawned on us, we don’t know where it came from.  So thought I would research and make a post on it.

Thought maybe it was Mary Poppins or something like that, but come to find out it’s an old Disney tune that was from a movie called “Song of the South” released in 1946 (never heard of it).  Now days Disney uses this song during the finale of their Splash Mountain ride.  It gets better…..my beloved Tom Hanks sang it in my favorite movie “Splash” (this is where I remember it from most)

Not to worry, Tom doesn’t hold a candle to Rob, but he has always been my favorite actor.  (speaking of candles, you know that old Elton song…..according to Rob, I’ve burned out long before my candle ever did??  how does that happen??  hehehe)

Help Fight Global Warming

2006-08-31

Do you ever wonder what’s going on with the weather lately?  Really? 

So what’s the hype?  Well, I’ve always dreamed of an ocean front home, but thought I would move there, and not have it move to me.  Luckily we now live at the top of the hill in West Seattle which is surrounded by the Puget Sound because if we don’t do anything about our emissions and Greenland melts like it is on the path to be done within 50 years, that will rise ocean water levels 20ft.  That won’t even be the worst part.  Please don’t change the channel when something about Global Warming comes on, it’s real and you need to pay attention to it.  This is yet more affirmation for me to not have a child.  I wouldn’t ever want my child to have to bare the weight for my generation not minding their emissions!

Hopefully one of these days we can get support from the Government by forcing these Car Manufacturers to start building more efficient cars considering we absolutly have the technology to do it.  This is only the beginning……

Living with War

Seriously…………….

So Bush, how’s the family friends, the Bin Ladin’s doing?

I read something today that I think is important to share from the Living with War Blog that Neil Young has up. 

What has always made America great has been our freedom to opine and disagree, no matter how unpopular or outrageous the views.
But in this day of specialized, targeted newscasts and narrow-minded, bullying talk show hosts, dissenting opinions are heard less frequently and more often than not, they are outright smashed down and ridiculed.” written by Dave Wedge

Part of me didn’t want to post this, not wanting to “piss anyone off” but then I thought, well, the only people that matter in my life is family, and they will still love me even if they do get pissed when I say Bush Sucks :D
 

 

4 Words for “An Inconvenient Truth”

2006-08-16

YOU MUST SEE IT!

I am begging (I don’t do that normally), and I will buy your movie ticket! 

Ignorance is bliss, but if we continue to be ignorant, there soon will be nothing left to worry about.  Sooner than you think.  And for those of you that don’t realize, we are only talking 50 years here.  If you think, “oh, it doesn’t matter, I won’t be alive in 50 years”  I’ll just say this, that’s pretty selfish, because shortly after that, no one will.  Let’s get serious.  I don’t like to have to do this on Mosscat, but this is something that has set off the fire in me, so I thought maybe I could help get it out there a little more.

After seeing this movie, or even just reading the scientific reports, it suddenly doesn’t matter that we are at war in the middle east, this is much bigger, and much more serious.  Please put your political views aside if you don’t care for Al Gore, because it’s not about politics at all.
