It’s good to see everyone’s got their priorities in order.
A new survey asked people what important events they’d skip if their favorite NFL team was in the Super Bowl and they had a chance to be there live. Here are the results . . .
- 23% would skip a vacation.
- 21% would bail on important work.
- 20% would skip a close friend or family member’s wedding.
- 19% would skip a close friend or family member’s FUNERAL.
- And 15% would miss the birth of their child.
Your sibling relationships says a lot about your relationships with others. Here are a few sibling facts, according to the book, “The Sibling Effect: What the Bonds of Brothers and Sisters Reveal About Us.”
Here are brief descriptions of the main “players” in families:
Firstborns often model parents’ behavior. They like taking charge and have oodles of confidence. Adults take them seriously and that boosts their confidence. When parents gush over every firstborn “first,” it motivates oldest children to achieve. They can easily become perfectionists. They also may have trouble admitting when they’re wrong.
The second-born will seek out a role that’s completely the opposite of the first born. They are also negotiators, remain agreeable, more relaxed attitude and compromising. They handle disappointment well and have realistic expectations. They are also the least likely to be spoiled and tend to be the most independent. They will go along with most people but often feel left out and neglected.
Parents tend to let things slide once the last child comes along. Last borns usually do get away with more than their siblings do. They shoulder less responsibility, so they’re more likely to be carefree, easygoing, fun-loving, affectionate, sociable and funny.
Last borns will often become more rebellious and might be spoiled and manipulative.
4. Only Children
They are often self-entertainers and often the most creative, because they spend so much time alone. They are confident, pay considerable attention to detail, and tend to do well in school. They may develop a self-centered streak because they are used to feeling important.
Woman jumps from moving car after seeing spider leaving her child behind, causing wreck
If you hate spiders, you’ll totally understand what happened here . . . up to a point. Because no phobia should put other people’s LIVES at risk
A 35-year-old woman named Angela Kipp was leaving her house last Friday in Syracuse, Indiana. (About 140 miles north of Indianapolis.)
And while she was backing out of her driveway, she saw a SPIDER on her shoulder . . . FREAKED OUT . . . and jumped OUT of her car. She didn’t take the time to put it in park . . . and if you’re afraid of spiders, you understand why.
But that was a problem for two reasons. First, her car kept rolling down the driveway. Second, her nine-year-old SON was still in the back seat. I don’t care how afraid of spiders you are, that’s not cool. Because what if the spider then went for HIM. (???)
It sounds like the kid’s a little better in a crisis situation than his mom is though, because he immediately climbed into the front seat and tried to stop the car.
Unfortunately, he hit the gas instead of the brake . . . the car sped up . . . backed into the road . . . and slammed into a SCHOOL BUS that was driving by.
Luckily he only suffered minor injuries, there weren’t any kids on the bus, and the bus driver was okay. But there’s a picture of Angela’s car, and it looks like it was totaled.
Thanks to those who joined us today at the TxDOT Child Passenger Safety event.
A big thank you to everyone for helping us bring awareness to the RGV about the correct installation of child safety seats!

We might soon be meeting SOUTH West . . . because KIM KARDASHIAN and KANYE WEST are expecting their second child. There’s no word on the due date.
The announcement was tucked into a tease at the end of the mid-season finale of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” last night. (Check it out here. It’s 30 seconds in.)
Kim’s struggle to get knocked up again has been one of the recurring themes of the show’s current season, along with BRUCE JENNER’s, you know . . . transformation.
Earlier this month, Kim said, quote, “We are trying. We try every single day. You can’t try harder than we try. It’s getting exhausting. He always says, ‘Trying for baby number 2 isn’t as fun as trying to baby number 1.'”
