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! ;)

WEIRD WEATHER

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) -- With much of the nation digging out from snowstorms -- you might figure Anchorage, Alaska, must be buried. But folks in Alaska's biggest city are asking where's the snow? As a large swath of the Lower 48 shivers, Anchorage is unseasonably warm. The little snow that has fallen has already melted. Not so in western New York, where Buffalo is being buried. There's so much snow on the ground, the NFL has decided to move the Bills' home game against the Jets. The game had been scheduled for Sunday in the Buffalo area, but will be played Monday night in Detroit. The Lions are at New England Sunday.

UNCLAIMED LOTTERY PRIZE

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- A lucky $1 million Powerball winner could soon turn very unlucky. Virginia Lottery officials say the clock is ticking on a winning ticket sold for the June 21 drawing. The ticket hasn't been turned in yet. It will expire at the close of business on Dec. 18 if the jackpot isn't claimed. Virginia Lottery officials note winning tickets are only good for 180 days after the drawing.

CENTENARIAN-FIRST OCEAN VISIT

ORANGE BEACH, Ala. (AP) -- Ruby Holt has seen a lot in her more than 100 years. But one thing she never saw was the ocean -- at least not until this month. Holt got a chance to go to the beach, visiting the Gulf coast in Alabama. The trip was made possible by Brookdale Senior Living Solutions, where Holt lives in Columbia, Tennessee, and the Wish of a Lifetime organization. Holt says she had always heard about how wonderful the ocean is and wanted to see for herself. She got a chance to walk across the white sand with a little help and dip her feet into the cool Gulf waters. Holt turns 101 Dec. 13.

GIANT NUTCRACKER

ROSEBURG, Ore. (AP) -- It's nuts! A giant nutcracker will be the centerpiece of the annual holiday festival near Roseburg, Ore. Toby Johnson created the monster cracker using a chain saw. It will stand more than 40 feet tall and the nut-crushing power comes from a motor. Cranes are being used to assemble the nutcracker at the site of the festival, which opens Sunday. Sponsors tell The News-Review they're sending documentation to the Guinness people to earn a world's record for the biggest nutcracker.
