Poo Pieces - 05/09/14

    For any mom reading this, the title won't even make you flinch.  Others, well.... you may need to click out.   This blog is an  ode to all my fellow moms.
    First off, let me just say I looooooove being a mom.  I was so busy working on my career and so was he that my husband and I started our family late.  So, I'm incredibly blessed to have 2 healthy children, but I've just got to tell you... if we had started earlier...  I would have given the Duggars a run for their money.   I love this!
    The things my kids say, the things they do, the way they're learning to relate to the world around them is the most intriguing thing this curious journalist has ever and will ever be a part of. 
     So, why Poo Pieces as a title?  Because that's what I had to clean up today.  My dear husband left early before the rest of us were up.  The toilet in our master bathroom apparently was showing signs of malfunctioning, so since he was running late, he simply closed the lid and stacked 10 rolls of toilet paper on top of it. 
     Somehow, we were supposed to all figure out that that meant the commode was out of order.  When my son woke up, he was the first to run down to our room and use OUR toilet for some reason.  In one fell swoop he throws off the toilet paper rolls and hops on board for his morning ritual.  Then, he flushes.
     For the next 45 minutes or so.... you know it... I'm cleaning up poo pieces. 
     Happy Mothers Day to all the good and loyal moms out there who've done that and more, who answer the call of motherly duty every day whether it's to wipe a tear, give a hug, correct behavior or sneak some neck sugar from your babies....  Your work is leaving a legacy.... and I'll just end by saying thank goodness for Comet, Lysol Wipes, Bleach and Soft Scrub.  I kept them all in business today.

IN THE NEWS: GPS CAUSES MLB PITCHER TO GET LOST

UNDATED (AP) -- You've heard of baseball pitchers who have trouble finding the plate. How about a pitcher who can't even find the ballpark in which the plate is located. That was the deal with Edwin Jackson of the Chicago Cubs. He missed his first spring training start Tuesday -- when he ended up at the wrong stadium. Jackson says he typed "Oakland Athletics spring training complex" into his smartphone -- and off he went. Off, as in off in the wrong direction. The GPS on his phone sent him to Phoenix Municipal Stadium. But Oakland no longer plays there; they're five miles away. He finally found the ballpark. And the way he pitched, next time his opponents might send a car for him. He gave up eight runs and nine hits in just 1 and 2-3 innings.

NCAA BLACKOUT

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -- Talk about your bracket busters. Officials in Nebraska are telling lawmakers if they want to watch the NCAA basketball tournament -- they'll have to do it after work. Legislative and judicial administrators have been informed through email that Web sites for streaming the NCAA tournament are blocked on the Capitol's network. Officials say when too many people stream the games, the Internet bogs down for official state business. Already the state blocks sites that feature gambling, pornography -- and sites that are notorious for malware.

NEW YORK JETS HELP WITH PROM PROPOSAL

NEW YORK (AP) -- It may not be enough to wipe out the memory of the notorious "butt fumble." But some members of the New York Jets were able to help a young woman complete a "pass" -- by asking a guy out to the prom. Sarah Kardonski was able to get several members of the team to appear in a video in which she asks Michael Pagano to go to the high school prom with her. At one point, one Jets player leans into the camera and whispers: "Say yes." Pagano did.

CYCLISTS IN DRIVE-THRU LANES?

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Hold the mayo -- and the two-wheelers? The governor of Utah has approved a measure that will, in effect, ban bicycles from using drive-thru lanes at restaurants. Gary Herbert has approved a bill to override a mandate in Salt Lake City that lets bikers queue-up along with cars, trucks and other vehicles at drive-thru windows. The Salt Lake City rule says restaurants must serve those on two wheels if they close their lobby -- but continue to offer drive-thru service. Salt Lake City officials say the law would make the city less car-dependent. But opponents say having cyclists mingle with vehicles in a drive-thru lane is dangerous.
