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! ;)

NEW YORK (AP) -- It looks good enough to eat. A new art exhibit in the Big Apple takes a bite out of food. "The Value of Food: Sustaining a Green Planet" has works from 30 artists. The exhibit is divided into seven themes: water, soil, seed, farm, market, meal and waste. Guest co-curator Robin Kahn says they hope visitors will "look at food in a new way that's more beneficial not only to them but to the Earth." The multimedia exhibition opened last week at the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine in Manhattan.


SEATTLE (AP) -- The law of supply and demand is going to be studied -- when it comes to pot. A new group at the University of Washington law school will look at markets for marijuana. The yearlong study will help inform the state as it prepares to combine the medical and recreational marijuana markets. The project will try to estimate the demand for legalized weed.


HELSINKI (AP) -- They were the good guys. Police in Sweden were called about a group of suspicious, bearded men with a black flag in the ruins of a castle. Authorities feared they could be Islamic State sympathizers. But these guys were a bunch of do-gooders. John Ekeblad is a co-founder of the Swedish chapter of the Bearded Villains. He says the so-called villains promote equality and do charity work. Ekeblad says the incident was "hilarious," and police drove off laughing.


DENVER (AP) -- It's the feds versus the makers of kombucha. That's a fermented tea that has moved from the natural foods aisle to the mainstream. Federal authorities say the brewers of the tea need to relabel their product to reflect it can contain alcohol. But the tea makers say it's a natural byproduct of the fermentation process. Makers of the tea are asking for new federal tests. They say the alcohol level is so low, many fruits have a similar content from natural fermentation.
