When Blogging Becomes a Slog

It started so innocently.

Earlier this month, John and Sherry Petersik, the husband-and-wife duo behind the hugely popular home-renovation blog Young House Love, apologized to their readers for not writing their regular Thursday post, and asked how they felt about shorter posts when “we can’t write something juicy.”

The casual visitor to Young House Love would hardly have noticed a lack of industriousness. The Petersiks, who are in their early 30s and live in Richmond, Va., have bought and renovated three homes in the last eight years, each project bigger than the last, while also publishing a best-selling how-to book, designing a line of wall hooks sold by Target, decorating an entire show house, having two children and blogging, tweeting and Instagramming every last detail of it. Young House Love has an almost mind-numbing amount of D.I.Y. content, like instructions on how to install laundry-room cabinets and how to stain concrete floors, all of it delivered step-by-step in the cheerful, self-deprecating, broadly comic tone that has made the Petersiks Internet stars.

Good fair Wednesday morning to you.

Rosh Hashana is upon us.

The holiday, which begins at dusk and celebrates the Jewish New Year, means that many New Yorkers will be out of school for two days.

It will rain on Thursday, but fortunately for parents there’s lots to do indoors.

A group of Tennessee cheerleaders decided to bring prayer back to the football field.

Oneida High School administrators instituted a moment of silence after receiving complaints from secular groups about school-led prayers at the district’s Friday night football games. But members of the cheer squad, upset about breaking the more than 80 year old tradition, recently started reciting the prayers on their own.

Cheerleader Asia Canada said she couldn’t help but speak up.

Why would anyone think that we should be at war with such nice, peaceful Muslims?!















America make up your mind

Why can’t Americans make up their minds?  First they want all the troops brought home from the far east and now they want troops on the ground again.

They suddenly are jingoist like Teddy Roosevelt.  Apparently they want to start World War III.  If there is a World War III, the USA will suffer greatly.  Millions of lives will be lost, corporations will cease to exist and English may no longer be the spoken language in America.

Here’s an idea, America should send all of the Over Armed City Police Units (OACPU) to the far east to eradicate ISIS in lieu of starting World War III.

An Arizona shooting instructor has died after a 9-year-old student accidentally shot him in the head.

Charles Vacca, 39, was pronounced dead on Monday, according to a press release from the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office. Vacca was an instructor at Bullets and Burgers, an outdoor shooting range about 25 miles away from Las Vegas, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Investigators say he was shot with an automatic Uzi around 10 a.m. Monday while teaching a 9-year-old to use the gun. When she pulled the trigger, recoil sent the weapon flying over her head.
