Brad Pitt bad boy is getting a divorce summons...............who cares?

View previous topic View next topic Go down  Message [Page 1 of 1]

I watched Fox News cover this story.........I was told everybody was talking about this divorce. I must be in a minority. I am appalled that this story took one minute of news time. The cult of personality which made Paris Hilton, Donald Trump, and Brad Pitt important is exactly the problem........so why did I start the thread.......because I am sick of Donald Trump and Paris Hilton's porn has gotten old.

"Who cares?" is absolutely right. To those who live vicariously through their TV and movie idols, following their every move, I say I wish they could get a life.

I'm a serious lifelong movie buff. I honestly always prefer to see an unknown actor playing the role.
When I see Pitt or Cruise or Jolie or any other well known actor, I see an actor on the screen, not the character the actor is playing.

In other words, famous people and celebrity faces are a detriment to the whole cinematic endeavor.

Having to learn about their personal lives is about as interesting to me as watching grass grow and not only that but watching it grow in the winter.

Just reminded me of the birdseed grass...

Laughing

I am going to go to Hall's hardware in Milton and buy two more fifty pound bags of winter rye grass seed........it makes the property beautiful all the way through May.......over seed and spend about three hours to enjoy beautiful green grass under the live oaks.....stunning. I like the Ace Hardware in Niceville also.......they carry cool stuff, but too far to drive.

Another place for "cool stuff" is Pensacola Hardware, downtown on East Gregory Street, if you've not been there yet. A great bunch of helpful people and almost anything you could ever want in hardware. Ace Hardware on Hwy. 98 in Gulf Breeze near the beach is very helpful also but more run-of-the-mill merchandise.

As for grass seed, that's one thing Hurricane Ivan saved us from -- ever wanting a lawn again, at least as long as we live on the island.

Knot directed me to them, but they screwed up the cedar stain that the Navarre Ace had run out of.......they mixed paint incompetently, but we drove to niceville and had really helpful people get us the right stain and not waste our time. I will always get paint and stain from Lowes or Home depot because the Ace Hardwares do not carry much inventory, and there are four Lowes within fifteen miles in Pensacola......never run out, and they have a better computer system than Ace.

I love the fresh bright green rye grass in the winter when you have a sunny Feb day which is in the high sixties, versus brown dead grass on a fabulous spring like day.....Nothing is better than winter in the Panhandle with beautiful green grass.

And fine on the island as well as long as (a) one doesn't use chemicals (fertilizer, weed killer, et al), as the runoff is harmful to the Sound's water quality, and (b) one doesn't mind living with the possibility of having a beautiful, cared-for lawn totally ruined in the next storm surge.

Nope, we've gone all natural -- just sand and beach vegetation -- as have many other leaseholders who've been here for years.  Most new places are sporting those beautiful lawns, tho.  May they never have to know the disappointment of losing them -- and we just have to hope they're being environmentally responsible.  It's tough to do.

I can relate to Linda's comments . . . . . . we kept a manicured landscape for years but grew weary of the maintenance which was about six hours a week to cut, edge, sweep . . . etc., life is too short we concluded but in lieu of going natural we converted to a rock yard with concrete edging.

I don't understand the public's fascination with what is known as America's royalty - Hollywood people, but I can largely ignore it.

What really grates on my nerves is the public's fascination with the British royalty.

I may puke if I have to see another picture of Kate and her rugrats.

Didn't we fight the Revolutionary War to get away from those entitled inbreds?

If you ever wind up with something requiring old parts, fabrication, or unique solutions try Hutson hardware.

If we lived in a civilized society, two kinds of people would be tried and put in prison. Those who put soil and grass on that amazingly beautiful barrier island.
And those who don't leave plenty of shade trees in commercial parking lots.
