I'll Have Applesauce By Lady GaGa - 10/03/13

    Normally, it's our kids who say the funniest things.  I'm always quick to jot down their remarks, yet not so quick to transfer it to their baby books (some day.)   Like the time my son asked, "Mom, when's Santa coming?"  Me: "Soon, Christmas is right around the corner."   Son: "Well mom, just where is that corner?"  Or the time my daughter said, "I think I'm going to invent something to take away taxes and the babble heads on the radio." (Apologies to my dear radio friends. :) )

    So, the other day we're all riding in the car on the way to school.  This is our little tradition.  We ALL ride together to drop off the kids each morning, even the dog, Cottonball (also known as Moony Moony, Wiggles, Antler, JuJu, Gertrude, Mildred, & Cot Cot.)  She's got to be having an identity crisis.  Anyway, hubs always throws on a hat to cover his bed head.  I grab a jacket to cover my pj's.  (Lord help us if we ever get in a wreck.)

   On the way, the kids like to listen to pop, of course.   They say it wakes them up and gets them motivated for school.  This little infusion of pop in our lives has really awakened us too, though hubs has been slower to catch on.  Keep reading----

    On this particular day, the 'babble heads' were taking a breather and we actually got to hear a song.  None other than Lady Gaga pops up.  The title of the song and the artist are displayed on the little screen and my husband jokingly with an edge of sarcasm says, "Applesauce!  Where has this song been all my life?"

    But the joke was on him.  My daughter retorts with all of her 8 year old wisdom, "Dad, it's Applause, not Applesauce.  This is Lady Gaga. Can you not read?"     

    Not only, is Applause the lead single off her new album ARTPOP, but it also became her 12th top 10 single in the US.  Applause even went number one in Lebanon, Greece, South Korea, Hungary and Spain.  So, why have they all heard of it, but we haven't?     

   Sorry Dad, no applause or applesauce for you! ;)

86-YEAR-OLD WOMAN WRITES STEAMY ROMANCE NOVEL

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- It isn't quite 50 Shades of Gray. But a book written by an 86-year-old Utah woman is getting attention because of the steamy content of the book about a bored housewife. Georgia Gorringe tells KUTV it took her five years to write the novel available on Kindle and Amazon. The story is about a woman who listens to talk radio and is mesmerized by a man's voice. The writer's adult daughter says she was taken aback by the amount of steaminess in the book. Gorringe insists the book "No Good-Bye" is all fiction -- but her daughter says much is based on her mom's life.

MUG SHOT T-SHIRT

MADISON, Maine (AP) -- So, what does one wear to be booked into jail? If the "one" is Bobby Burt of Pittsfield, Maine, it's was a T-shirt featuring his mug shot. Burt served a 48-hour sentence for drunken driving back in June. And when showed up for his booking photo, he was sporting a T-shirt with the mug shot from his arrest on an orange shirt. The shirt had the words: "Sponsored by Bud Light and Somerset County Sheriff." The mug shot is getting a lot of added attention, thanks to The Smoking Gun. Jail officials say there is no policy on what inmates can or cannot wear for booking photos.

101-YEAR-OLD MAN KEEPS WORKING

EAST HANOVER, N.J. (AP) -- He just turned 101 years old. And part of the way Herman "Hy" Goldman marked the occasion was to do something he has done for the past 73 years: Go to work. Goldman works four days a week at Capitol Lighting in East Hanover, New Jersey. His co-workers observed his birthday on Monday. Aside from a brief absence to serve in the Army during World War II, Goldman has worked at Capitol Lighting since 1941.
