This is before the blink... when they were sweet:

I blinked and my kids were in puberty. I was too busy for a few minutes and they went from being sweet 10 and 11 year olds to obnoxious jerks!! I wish I had savored the sweet phase a little longer.

Regarding Sarah Palin, I think maybe she woke up in the nick of time and realized her blind ambition was destroying her family.

I am viewing her decision as a mother would. With so many people in the public eye dying lately, it brings home the point that life is too short to waste a moment at a job you despise if it is taking you away from your children and the things you love. I believe a parent with a stressful job can ruin children's lives more than being unemployed. I would rather do with less, and spend quality time with my family — than work long hours earning a lot of money. Time is not replaceable, nor is peace of mind and health.

Charity King: Michael Jackson Holds Guiness World Record

I have always adored Michael Jackson and want to mention that he was in the As the world continues to mourn the loss of a great artist, the Basham and Cornell Radio Show! Guiness World Record book remembers Michael Jackson instead as the king of charity.

The Millenium issue listed the music legend under Most Charities Supported By A Pop Star, with a staggering 39 international organizations including the Make-A-Wish Foundation and the American Cancer Society. Those are only the known ones however, as Jackson was also prone to giving away impulsively and anonymously.

Jackson had been known to hand over the proceeds from concerts to local charities and hospitals as he did with the History tour in Bombay, or donate personal items for auction to organisations like UNESCO. It’s been estimated he may have given up to $500 million to charity in his lifetime.
