As there are only two types of people in the world… the lovers and the haters…. here’s a fun news story from one of the USA’s brightest stars.
Momtrepreneur, multi-millionaire, mechandizing mogul, Britney Spears is having a birthday today.
The USA celebrates Britney’s birthday big time each year. This year, Pop Sugar shares a few of the pop stars song lyrics, through the years, that have fuelled the USA culturally for almost twenty years. There are few veterans in show biz with appeal of Spears in USA.
Some of the song lyrics being sung today in USA hoods right now from Brit Brit’s pop archives are:
“The reason I breathe is you.”–Hit Me Baby One More, when launching the USA into the internet age.
“But no way, I’m ever gonna fall for you. Never you baby.”–Womanizer, on reducing those fatal attractions, you just know are plain bad.
“We can get down. Like there’s no one around. We keep on rockin. We keep on rockin.”–Gimme More, on ensuring the USA stays sexy. (more…)

As shared a while back, Taylor Jane Davis turned 18. This means in New Zealand she is now eligible to vote.
In addition, the mantle of youth and also impending leadership sit on her shoulders.
Terry Watts shared some encouraging thoughts for Taylor on her special night with whanu (family) and friends. The speech I heard that I liked too concerning her life’s great potential was a Maori proverb given by Brierly Yates. It went like this:
Ko te manu e kai ana i te miro, nōna te
ngahere. Engari, ko te manu e kai ana i te
mātauranga, nōna te ao.
The bird that consumes the miro berry, owns the forest. However, the bird that consumes knowledge, owns the world.”
[Taylor, may your spirit soar into your good dreams concerning your life and may they be realized fruitfully in your life. Much love. xox].

Today is my sister, Saloni Ruth‘s 43rd (US) Birthday. She’s a gem in her community as well as being a fine sportswoman. On this day, the front page of The Washington Post here in America, looks like this.
Gizmos & Gadgets for Christmas feature for retailers. Although diversity has never once gone out of fashion, Vogue leads the charge on Diversity is a feature story. War Medics focus on Trauma Transit efforts. Crystal meth in America is pinpointed to be stemming from Mexican Cartels. Oregon was a sight of a suspected bomb plot. Meanwhile many can’t afford housing costs in Washington D.C, the nation’s capitol.
What an interesting front cover today from The Post. There’s a lot going on.
Happy Birthday Sharon. From as far back as I can remember Sharon filled our home with ukelele music. She became an adept songwriter and entertainer playing the guitar–performing in front of audiences at a young age. She is national tennis champ title holder along with her sister Cherry as well as a netball champion, a cup winning athlete and a touch rugby football, team player extraordinaire. In high school she was a decorated beauty queen. She had a special bond with her playful grandfather Graham Edward. Most of all, her spirit has ruled justly and she has lifted the burden of the oppressed where her heart led her. Really, she is like the archetypal “All American girl” but she is proudly Maori and Kiwi. Today she lives in a New Zealand city, where whales are known to swim in schools sometimes in her surrounding shores.
Sharon: I love you on your special day we have always celebrated with joy as your family. You were born on The Island of Vava’u, Tonga where whales swim and play, 43 years ago today in a principality ruled by a Monarchy. Of her Island where Sharon and two of her sisters were born in the beautiful South Pacific, it is written:
“The Vavaíu Island group in the Kingdom of Tonga is a spectacular tropical island paradise in the Pacific Ocean. It has a year-round climate suitable for swimming, snorkeling, diving and sailing. Some islands are ringed by white sand beaches while others have tropical forests, sea-level caves, and dramatic limestone cliffs with breathtaking vistas.
“Remote and truly unspoiled, the waters around Vava’u are crystal clear with visibility exceeding 100 feet. Most of the islands are uninhabited, a few have villages, a few have very small unique resorts with exceptional food. There is abundant sea life with over 100 species of colorful tropical fish, giant clams, manta rays, sea turtles, spinner dolphins, and July-October the Humpback whales!
Truly a paradise with the only Polynesian Monarchy this is a truly remarkable place to explore.”
This year Tonga is having their very first democratic elections. It is a hallmark defining moment of democracy and liberty for the Kingdom of Tonga. In memory of Uncle Sam Sasser, The American footballer who used to visit you in Tonga as a baby, here’s an image of The Washington Red Skins, getting whopped by the Minnesota Vikings. :)
Howard Frendrich writes: LANDOVER, Md. — After scrambling 10 yards on his creaky legs for a key first down, Brett Favre popped up with one of his shoulder pads flapping around and started leaping on teammates for hugs. Moments later, the Minnesota Vikings’ 17-13 victory Sunday over the Washington Redskins complete, Favre went over to new coach Leslie Frazier and handed him the football.” Bret Favre is 41 years old, a grandfather– and still playing football.
