When it comes to marriage – let’s face it, it’s hard. Keeping a relationship, working as a partner and promising to spend the rest of your life with another person is a tough task that many today can’t always achieve. Does that mean they are failures? I would say no. Sometimes it just doesn’t work out.
As a parent, worry rarely goes away. Are they safe? Have you done enough to make sure they are on the right path to success? Are there people out there who can hurt them?
The term "social media" brings to mind images of idle teen-age chat about weekend parties and the drudgery of homework.

Jon Favreau directs and stars in this delectable summer entrée about a talented chef attempting to follow his creative cooking instincts while balancing life’s demands outside the kitchen. Favreau’s character, Carl Casper, is a rising culinary star that must overcome setbacks on his journey towards the American dream. “Chef” showcases what it takes to make it as an entrepreneur; a belief in oneself, talent, risk and customer service. It marinates each of these into a solid story with added pinches of humor.
If you spend any time on Facebook or Pinterest you’ve likely seen a number of those clever cartoons—the ones that depict old-timey characters beside a mostly tongue-in-cheek phrase meant to elicit laughs and, of course, little thumb-up likes. Lately, I’ve noticed a relatively new addition to the virtual pictograms making the social media rounds. These are less tongue-in-cheek, more “inspirational”, and are quickly gaining momentum. The version I’m referring to typically feature a background image—a beach or the sun shining through an evergreen forest, for example—offset by a short sentiment that offers dime-store advice on how to live: Always smile back at little children. To ignore them is to destroy their belief that the world is good. There are variations, of course. Come to think of it, I seem to have an inordinate number of Facebook friends who post not-so-discreet comebacks seemingly aimed at the opposite end of a failed relationship: You had me at hello, lost me at goodbye, and everything in between was nothing, but a lie. So, too, are there the Stuart Smalley variety of motivational quotes: Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass. It’s about learning to dance in the rain.

We're being told by an obviously biased mainstream media that the GOP is in danger of disappearing from the political scene if it doesn't "move to the center" and adopt the policies of the Democrats.
