Throughout the history of mankind, admirable deeds and tragic sacrifices have been made in the name of patriotism. We know there’s a reason why Russians call their country Mother Russia, why the 4th of July is a national holiday in the United States, and why Inter Milan and AS Roma soccer fans forget their differences for ninety minutes every time Italy is playing. For some, patriotism is a very clearly defined concept, and is symbolized by a uniform. For others, it’s more than that, and the definition stretches beyond just defending your land. But we all know homesickness when we feel it, and that sense of home, of belonging, is at the root of all patriotism, and the desire to defend what we hold close to our hearts.
Teachers are supposed to help your children grow and develop their learning skills and hone in on their talents and social skills. Not 61-year-old Third grade teacher Mark Berndt. His thirty-year experience at Miramonte Elementary School gave new meaning the word experience.
When I sent my only child to kindergarten on what was going to be the glorious first day, I followed the bus all the way to the school and my child said “Mom, geez did you have to go all the way to school? My friends from pre-school were yelling, ‘Hey! Isn’t that your mom?’”
In this day and age it seems as though more times than none when we pick up a newspaper or turn on the nightly news that we hear of children being beaten/tortured/raped/murdered by parents,loved ones, or babysitters. It’s really heart breaking. So let me ask you, as a parent, what would you do if you found someone had hurt your child? Would you call the police or take matters into your own hands? What if you had already called the police previously and they did nothing but write their standard police report?
How well do any of us really know our friends? I’m sure most of us would like to think we know them very well especially if they’ve been around your family for years. Let me start my telling all of you that this is a gut wrenching story and it’s very close to my heart because it happened only about 15 miles from my home. I have gotten to know the victim’s family and they are very good people that should not be going through something like this.
Amanda Taylor, 32, from Leighton Alabama was a beautiful, outgoing,loving mother to three children. She was a wonderful daughter/sister/aunt/cousin/and friend to many great people.

When I first wrote up the Diane Schuler tragedy back in July of 2009, the facts were still coming in. I tried to keep every up to the minute with frequent updates, but it was impossible to catch every development when it happened.
Fortunately for this website, one of our regulars, FuzzyWuzzy, became admittedly obsessed with finding the truth behind all the bullshit that came out of the Schuler and Hance family camps concerning the head-on collision that claimed the lives of Diane and 7 innocent victims. He posted several comments stating his findings, and they were good – very, very good.

Here it is folks, Episode 4 of Shits And Giggles. J-Slice’s & Ringo’s comments on the Robert Melia Jr. Story were very amusing. I’m telling you folks, these kids give me hope for the next generation. Anyways, they can’t do any worse than my generation did. Can you say G.W. Bush? LOL – Just kidding, all you Republicans out there. Nothing political about this blog, we love everybody.
OK, I admit it. I like these kids. So what’s the harm if we give them a little step up by featuring their vlog on PYSIH until it gets going on its own. So here they are, for your viewing pleasure, J-Slice and Ringo in (Dah-DahDahDah-Dah) Shits And Giggles, Episode 3!
