It’s Toutin’ Time (in heaven)!

(With apologies to the Hoppers.)

Well kids, it is that time again– Thursday is the day I send everybody over  here to read about this week’s LG TextEd topic. And this one happens to be about “Teens and the Dangers of Texting and Driving.”

OK, this one is a subject close to my heart, not just because we have a new teen driver in the family (who does NOT text while driving), but because we also happen to have a certain middle-aged gospel singer driver (hint: he just released a Christmas cd) WHO DOES! Yes friends, our sweet Russ is guilty as sin where texting and driving is concerned. In his defense, I will say that he doesn’t do it often (at least in front of me), but it has definitely happened. Honestly it scares me to death, not to mention it is a really bad example for Madi and Charlotte– and they will totally call shenanigans on that whole “do as I say and not as I do” thing! Anyway, I am heading over there right now and see if I can pick up any tips. And he better shape up, because Plan B is to make him sign that Oprah Pledge!


This LG TextEdit campaign is going really well and a lot of families are getting some very useful information on the subject of texting. HOWEVER… All of the LG Ambassadors (*practices Queen Elizabeth wave again*) got an email from the BlogHer people yesterday which said they are happy happy happy about everything with one possible exception– they’re re-thinking the fact that you guys have to jump through so many hoops in order to leave a comment. They’ve decided that it wasn’t a great idea to make you have to register at BlogHer before you can weigh in with your opinions or answer the questions we are posing at the end of our posts. And of course the biggest bummer about that is we are all really hoping to raise some money for that great organization,, which if you remember gets $.50 for every comment that’s left. They are trying to make it easier for you guys to participate in the whole thing, so they asked all of us Ambassadors (*again with the waving*) to re-post the piece that we wrote onto the review section of our personal blogs, and invite our readers to PLEASE leave a comment on it.  To get to my post, just go up to the top right of this page and click on the word “Reviews”– it’s right above my pointy little blonde head.

I would truly appreciate it if you scanned over that post I wrote a couple of weeks ago for this campaign, and left a brief comment– again, the idea is to raise some money for a good cause, and now that we’ve made it a little more user-friendly, you can do it pretty easily.

Thanks so much– let’s see if we can rack up a few $!
