Maria Aragon: New You Tube Sensation

Maria Aragon, 10 year-old kid from Winnepeg, Canada, who is born of Filipino parents, is definitely the newest You Tube sensation after Lady Gaga tweeted about the kid's video on You Tube where she sings Lady Gaga's song, "Born This Way". Lady Gaga considers Maria "the future". Apparently, Paris Hilton, who is a friend of Lady Gaga send Lady Gaga Maria's video which has amazed Lady Gaga. Because of that tweet, Maria's video at You Tube got more than 14 million hits that quick and made this kid another You Tube sensation like Filipina singer Charice. Maria guested at Ellen's show and also had a chance to talk to her idol Lady Gaga over the phone. I am proud of this kid because she is another Filipino kid with naturally amazing singing talent.

How I get the kids ready to return to school.

Guest post written by my buddy Royce Heath

Winter break for my kids is a time when I try to let them have a mini vacation at home. Getting them ready to head back to school can be a chore but I have mastered this over the years. The first thing to do is to wean them off the sugar. I do this by gradually decreasing the times during the day when they can have candy, cookies, etc. Mealtimes become centered on healthy food and beverages.

During the last week of their winter break I begin to incorporate their old routine back into their lives. Bedtimes become stricter, less electronic time and more reading and academics. This I accomplish by bribing my 12 year old to read to his two younger siblings. Gradually, old habits are again picked up and life returns to a more normal pace. My goal is to reward positive behavior by setting firm ground rules and reminders that school is fast approaching.

Once they are back in school, I set my home alarm system from and begin my winter break begins.

In Love and War ....

Hubby and I watched the movie "In Love and War", starring Sandra Bullock and Chris O'Donnell.  This was based on a true story of the great writer Ernest Hemingway who was an ambulace driver during World War I in Italy.  There, he met Sandra Bullock who played as a volunteer nurse, they fell in love despite the age gap.  Hemingway was 7 years her junior.  They did not end up with each other.  It has a sad ending.... I did not even know that this great writer used to be a soldier and he ended his life in 1961.  If you love romance, check this movie out.  It is full of drama.  Sandra Bullock is my most favorite actress.
