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! ;)

'BACHELOR' BREAKUP

NEW YORK (AP) -- He's going to stay a "Bachelor" -- at least for now. Chris Soules and Whitney Bischoff have split. Soules was "The Bachelor" on the latest season of the ABC show. He popped the question to Whitney during the season finale two months ago. The former couple released a statement saying they've "amicably decided to end their relationship" and "part with nothing but respect and admiration for one another." After The Bachelor, Soules was featured on "Dancing With the Stars." Us Weekly first reported the breakup.

SEA LIONS-BEACH BALLS

ASTORIA, Ore. (AP) -- It's a ball -- but not for sea lions. The Port of Astoria, Oregon, is trying a colorful approach to shooing away sea lions: beach balls. The Daily Astorian reports the idea came from a resident who said unlike seals, sea lions are afraid of beach balls. Since the beach balls have been floating in the docks, only a couple of sea lions have been spotted.

CALIFORNIA DROUGHT-LAWN REBATES

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- There's green in ripping out the lawn. Californians are taking advantage of rebates for pulling up their grass to conserve water during the drought. This week, the Metropolitan Water District added $350 million for rebates and other conservation measures in a large part of Southern California. In April, Gov. Jerry Brown ordered residents to slash water use. Since then, demand has surged for rebates to help homeowners trade lawns for drought-tolerant gardens. Homeowners get two bucks per square foot for ditching the grass.

TAXI PROTEST-UBER

LAS VEGAS (AP) -- It could be tough finding a cab in Sin City today. Taxi drivers in Las Vegas won't be cruising the Strip looking for fares. The union representing drivers for Yellow Checker Star taxis says they're protesting this afternoon. The drivers don't like the ride-sharing company Uber. They claim Uber's safety standards aren't sufficient and surge pricing is a bad deal for riders. No comment yet from Uber.
