Kittens Vs Toddlers - 10 Ways the two Compare

#pets #kids #children #kittens #cats #top10 #funnycats #humor #versus #lolcat #babies
       Kittens and toddlers have been stealing our hearts since the dawn of time. There's something about that perfect combination of babyish cuteness, uncanny bursts of intelligence, and that tendency to not care what anyone thinks that makes their antics utterly hilarious. A cat is a cat, and a human is a human, but that doesn't mean we can't get a good laugh from comparing the two! As a long-time toddler-wrangler, and a first-time kitty-mommy, I'm going to share some funny things I've observed.

10 Things People Rudely Assume About Homeschoolers

#School #Learning #Education #Homeschooling #List #Stereotypes #BarronTrump #Trump #Manners #Children #Kids #Parenting
       The notorious ugly tweet about 10-year-old Barron Trump by the overrated SNL writer, Katie Whatserface, was disturbing for more reasons than one. There were the obvious issues of an adult bullying a child, politically motivated nastiness, and suggesting that an innocent person was capable of unthinkable things. Most people didn't notice, however, that she also expresses a pretty nasty attitude toward homeschooling.

       When the phrase "First homeschool shooter" suggests that saying someone was homeschooled is as bad as suggesting they're a violent gunman, there's something extremely wrong. Many were quick to point out "That's not true! Barron went to a real school!" in his defense. Yet, nobody had anything to say about the implications of using "homeschooled" as an insult. It speaks to the overall ignorance and attitude of the general public.

New Comic on Webtoons -- Selfie Shtick

#Webcomics #Writing #Comics #Diary #Gag-a-day #ComicStrip #Drawing #Art #Webtoons #LINEWebtoons #SocialMedia #Selfie
       My latest webcomic experiment is a gag-a-day strip on Webtoons, called Selfie Shtick. It's part of the fictional diary genre of comedy where comic creators write about "themselves" in exaggerated cartoon worlds. It's a direct product of reading way too many of other peoples' selfie gags, and having ideas pop into my head for my own.

       Unlike my other comics, Selfie Shtick will be released directly to LINE Webtoons. My first two strips are featured in the post below. You can download the LINE Webtoons app to see more updates, or read online at Webtoons.com.

       Rogue One is the latest Star Wars movie to hit the big screens. It's a one-shot story that takes place immediately before the Original Trilogy. Starring Felicity Jones as the streetwise Jyn Erso and Diego Luna as the Rebel spy Cassian Andor, Rogue One is about the events that led to the Rebellion capturing the plans for the Death Star. It also features quite a few cameos from the Original Trilogy, including the much anticipated CGI portrayal of Governor Tarkin. Rogue One promised a lot of amazing things, but did it live up to expectations?

        A loving home is the greatest gift of all, and it's one that you can give to a shelter pet who needs it. Puppies and kittens are on a lot of Christmas lists, but choosing an older rescue animal is an act of kindness that benefits both the lucky pet and his new humans. Here are a few reasons to give a lonely creature in a shelter near you a second chance at a happy home.

Special thanks to Sophie Gamand for the use of these photos from her Instagram account in this post. Sophie uses her photography talents to help rescue pets find loving homes.
