Will Favre retire... Yes or No???

It was announced today that Vikings QB Brett Favre is considering retirement again... Scott is hoping that he is listening to the Hattiesburg, MS KLOVE station so that he can woo Brett back to the Vikings. Do you think that Brett will really retire this time???

Dr. Paul Meier on preparing kids to go back to school

It's that time again! The summer is ending and it's time to go back to school. Dr. Meier has some great tips for getting the kids ready to go back to school.

Here are his suggestions:

SUGGESTIONS FOR GOING BACK TO SCHOOL

 

1.         SHARE AND PRAY: Share how you feel about going back to school with God, a couple friends and your parents—both positive and negative feelings and hopes and concerns. A SHARED BURDEN IS HALF A BURDEN. Talking about your concerns decreases your anxiety about them by about half.

2.         FINANCES are tough for most families in this current economy, so just do the best you can with the resources available to you to have clothing and supplies as close to the norm of your particular school as possible, without being seductive or provocative.

3.         ENMESHMENT: Some parents are nice and mean well, but cripple their children by being overly enmeshed with them and their decisions. As much as is reasonably possible, encourage your children to make their own decisions, be independent, choose their own clothing (within boundaries of course), and develop their own close friends. Do NOT be your child’s best friend. Children who are overly dependent on a controlling parent have the most fear of going to school. Being a parent is the only job whose success is measured by your children no longer needing you to survive and make their own decisions.

4.         SOCIAL PHOBIA: You may have six children, five who are outgoing and one who is shy from birth on. Social phobia is often a genetic, inherited phenomenon, correctable within a week or within a few weeks by prescription medications from a child psychiatrist, such as Neurontin, for example, which is not addicting. Some types of social anxiety are curable with professional counseling alone, but other types require medication for an inherited chemical imbalance. 

5.         DEPRESSION, ANXIETY, OBSESSIVE-COMPULSIVE DISORDER, AND OTHER DEBILITATING PROBLEMS: Be sure your children get treated for these, or they will not be able to perform in school, socialize in school, and may even become suicidal. The teen suicide rate today is 300% higher than it was fifty years ago because of the breakdown of family and morals in our society, as well as other factors, including genetic factors. Your children (and yourselves) will recover from these with the right kind of help.

6.         BUILD A SUPPORT GROUP: We all need one or two friends who know all our secrets and accept us just the way we are.

7.         DEDICATE YOUR LIFE TO GOD: If you do, then you can be thankful for things that go right and grow from things that go “wrong.”

I must be missing something.  I don't see where Wisconsin looks like a mitten, even remotely.

Wisconsin clearly looks life a mitten with Door Co. as the thumb.  Michigan's mainland may give WI a run for it's money but when you add the U.P. of MI there is no comparison.  Is MI a glove with parts unraveling!!

Scott..we'll give the "title" to Michigan on the mitten thing, because we will be getting another title this year of Re-peat Superbowl Champs...or maybe the title of "Undefeated"!!!

If you are asking which state you would need mittens more, I guess Wisconsin would win. But it's a no-brainer. Which state looks like a mitten? C'mon, why is it even being discussed? Who would actually argue the fact that Michigan IS the "Mitten State?"

I think i'ts probably colder in Wisconsin, But the Mitten title goes to Michigan all the way BABY!

Are you kidding? Michigan wins-no contest. Wisconsin could be a deformed hand or a fist but not a mitten. And if you talk to michiganders they say the l.p is the hand and the up is the gun held by the lp. Bit of a stretch, bit you could see it.

I have to say Michigan! Wisconsin's thumb would be more a skeleton thumb...
About the Fruit Cake...My mom used to poor brandy on the towel she would place in the center of the bundt pan fruit cake before she stored the fruit cake away or gave them away. Her fruit cake was moist and delicious. My dad gave them as gifts to fellow workers at CF where he worked.  I wish I had her recipe but she threw it away when I was young.

Having been a life-long Michigander, I have to tell you that it's Michigan.  Where else do people use their hand for a map when someone asks where they live.  I've spent many days and nights camping and fishing in the "Thumb" and frequented many business establishments in the "Tip of the Mitt."  My friend, who migrated from Wisconsin to Michigan long ago, couldn't believe that anyone could seriously consider Wisconsin as a contender for being the "Mitten State."  Keep cheese as your claim to fame, Wisconsin . . . the Mitten is ours!!!!

I think it should be michigan because it looks more like a glove or mitten. If you look at a map, that shows border lines. Its plain to see. Of course I think it looks more like a boxing glove.

Michigan should get the title "Mitten State" if you go by shape. But...if you go by where the Super Bowl XLV Champions, Green Bay Packers, are from, Wisconson has it hands down. Sorry Scott, but Yes. I am a Packers fan.

Scott,  i was listening when the other day when you talked about how hard it is to get in the Christmas mood when you have suffered the loss of a loved one.  I know how that feels all too well but the reason I am writing is that today Proverbs31 devotional addressed "When Christmas is Hard" and I thought you would enjoy reading it and sharing with others.  God Bless!

When I was in my 20's my employer would give us a turkey and fixings with a fruitcake from Collins St. Bakery.  They were good and I am not a fruitcake fan.  I put it in my mom's freezer and 20 years later when they were moving we decided to try it.  It was STILL pretty good!  I contacted the bakery just to let them know that their fruitcakes will last 20 years in the freezer and they sent me a new one!!  That one we ate!!!

I just heard the news that Michigan won.  Umm I agree it does look like more of a mitten than Wisconsin.  Kelli you seem to do a great job of trying to keep Scott in line.  Scott try to be good sounds like that is hard for you.  I enjoy listening to you guys whenever I can.  Take care and have a wonderful Merry Christmas.

Heard the two of you discussing this a few days ago.  I agree that most fruitcakes are awful but I side with Scott in that the fruitcakes from Collins Street Bakery are delicious.  I grew up hearing the fruitcake jokes, but my husband's grandparents lived in Texas and would send a Collins Street fruitcake to family each year.  After watching my husband devour it year after year I tried it and am now a huge fan.  In fact I just placed my order online to have one delivered to us for Christmas.  Collins Street Bakery - Try It, You'll Like It!!!!

as to the part of michigan separate from the mitten-I think it looks like a cat all stretched out and the mitten is reaching out to scratch it.
