I am going to rant for a few minutes about the serious lack of good television these days.
It seems that everything has gone to " REALITY TV " .
Where in the Sam hill did these people get the idea that this is reality ?
I have watched a few of these so called " Reality Shows " and after a few minutes I have the overriding desire to fire off a couple of rounds into the TV.
I have seen about 5 minutes of Big Brother, what a waste of time. HEY PEOPLE , Get your lazy butts out of the house and get a JOB !!


Now I will admit that there are a few shows that do require some talent, and my wife even disagrees with my summation of this post. She likes "Dancing with the stars "
And it would appear that they are working at becoming a better dancer than they were.

But why is it with the stars ? Why not invite Joe Redneck Citizen To try dancing, and see if it sells, it may not, but at least it would be REALITY !!

I guess I just come from a time when " REALITY TELEVISION " was the NEWS !

Well I guess that's enough of that for the moment. Am I the only person alive today who has had enough of the ( Big Brother , Survivor , Hells Kitchen , Bachelor , ........... ) it seems like the list doesn't end !

I was going through the recent Sunday paper and I came across this little bit of news that I thought I would share with you all today.

Obviously their are people who will disagree with me in my summation of this event , If so please feel free to submit your comments .

I wanted to nominate this mom for the Coffee Shop Mom of the Week award, if nothing else but for her determination in making sure her son learned a lesson.

Many parents would have lashed out at the school system, argued against the discipline handed out or ranted and raved about the unfairness of said situation.

This news clipping makes me appreciate that there are still people who want the same values that I hold dear.

Kudos To You Mam

Keep up the fine work !!

We at the Coffee Shop Salute You Mam !!

1st Topic " MANNERS "

What is it with kids today? Or even adults? I remember a time when common manners were expected from people, but it seems now that those instances are few and far between. I will admit that there are many people today , both young and older , that DO attempt to show courtesy, but as a whole the idea has gone by the wayside !

I remember when people would hold a door for an elderly person, or say yes mam or yes sir.
Simple courtesy's that don't seem to matter to most folks anymore.

Today we have , not only the young , but adults who ignore the basic tenants of common decency. Being overly loud at restaurant's, Using Cell phones at inappropriate times, Inappropriate language, just to name a few. This list could go on and on.

What Do You Think ?

I cant help but wonder what the world will be like in regards to manners in 10...15...20 yrs.
