She talks about a lot of things, but key to the conversation is her new daughter, Giovanna.
"Giovanna just turned one month yesterday," Snooki said. "All she does is eat and s--t and sleeps… she just lays there. I think once Giovanna starts to actually move and crawl and run around, that's when s--t's gonna hit the fan."
A couple of month ago, I met an eight (80) year old man at a local restaurant. We struck up a conversation during which time he told me the secret to life. He said, "Life is not difficult, we (humans) make it difficult. There are three things that comprise the secret of life. The first is LOVE, love someone and be loved by someone, the second is HELP, help someone and someone will help you and third, ENJOY, find something that you enjoy, it doesn't have to be the same thing someone else enjoys." After thinking this over for a couple of days, it dawned on me that this elderly gentlemen was absolutely correct. I felt so blessed to have been given this tidbit of wisdom from one much older than I. One who has experienced a lot more of life than I. The following video is an example of all three of these principles. If the man in question didn't have LOVE in his heart, he wouldn't have offered HELP and it's obvious .... ENJOYment was felt by all.
My wife and sons would beg to differ whenever I make that rallying cry. You see for years I was an ardent Washington fan. I love DC. I think it's the most interesting and powerful city in the world. We bought our first home there. I started my radio career at the Navy Radio News service while stationed at the Pentagon. I was there during the team's glory days. When guys like Doug Williams, Art Monk, John Riggins and that powerhouse front line known as the hogs reign supreme. Notice here that I have yet to refer to the NFL franchise by its mascot name. I'm taking a stand with Native American's – the indigenous people of this country - who feel that the name is a derogatory slur. They want it dropped and I agree with them. Sure the term has been romanticized over the decades. But as anyone who grew up on a steady diet of TV westerns know that the term was used as an attack on one's humanity
I came of age politically while living in DC. I was a member of Operation PUSH. I marched alongside Stevie Wonder, Diana Ross, Dick Gregory and countless others in an effort to push legislation recognizing Dr. King's birthday a national holiday. But I don't think Washington's football team is entitled to slander native people. I could love the team without the name
Besides, I got nothing but love for Texas. When I was a younger man in search of adventure and the ultimate party, I ran off and joined the Navy. After boot camp I got stationed in a Texas town so small few Texans have heard of it. Beeville, Texas. It was an advance jet training command stuck out in the boonies to perhaps avoid an aircraft mishap. What a bust. But after about a year being there, I met a beautiful young woman who later became my wife. I bought my first set of wheels there. A 1972 Grand Torino with a 351 Cleveland engine. The kind Starsky & Hutch drove. So I have fond memories and strong ties to Texas. And no matter if my family welcomes me to the fold - I'm here. Unless Dan Snyder, owner of the Washington franchise, join the many states and school district across the country in refusing to say it's ok to marginalize native people.
Now how 'bout them Cowboys?
