I am feeling really sad and frusturated about something. I had a cool kid this year who has just given up on himself. I know I have posted about him in the past. Lets call him Pat. He lives with an alcoholic grandma. He told our assist principal he wanted to be kicked out of school and sent to an alternative school . Well, after so many chances he was removed. I kept up with him through some of his friends. I knew he had been staying with one of my old students (who is a complete shit). His name is Joe. Well Joe's mom works nights so all the boys hang out there. Last night as I was leaving Dillards at the mall, I saw 3 cop cars and 4 kids lined up against a wall. It ends up I have taught all 4 of them. One just finished with me Friday. I got out and talked to the kids and the cops. Two of them were just in the wrong place at the wrong time. Daniels grandfather came to pick him up along with my 6th grader from this year. Joe's mom shows us screaming in the parking lot to the cops as soon as she gets out of her truck " you can fucking keep both of them. I am so tired of their shit! They just can't stay out of trouble. They get in trouble at school, Joe cusses me out on a regular basis. Fuck Fuck Fuck You can take both of them to jail. Lock them up, beat on them. Do whatever the hell you want to with them"
I want to help Pat. He is a VERY depressed kid in a no win situation. I want to get him counseling. I want him to have a fair shake in this world. Social services can't do anything. I am going to talk to some other teachers tomorrow---those who have been teaching for 20+ yrs and ask their advice.

Songs in no particular order:
"Faithfully" by Journey
"Cross my Heart" by George Strait
" Dream Weaver" by Gary Wright
" Save a Prayer" by Duran Duran
" I Remember You" by Skid Row
" Misunderstanding" by Genesis
"Southern Cross" by Crosby, Stills Nash and Young
" New York State of Mind" By Billy Joel
Working nights at Right Track Studio as a handyman and toilet cleaner, Trent Reznor used studio "down time" to record and develop his own music. Playing most of the keyboards, drum machines, guitars, and samplers himself, he recorded a demo.
Frontiers managed to give Journey four Top 40 hits, with "After the Fall" and "Send Her My Love" both reaching number 23, "Faithfully" at number 12, and "Separate Ways" peaking at number eight -- the same amount that 1981's Escape brandished. While they tried to use the same musical recipe as Escape, Frontiers comes up a little short, mainly because the keyboards seem to overtake both Schon's guitar playing and Steve Perry's strong singing. An overabundance of Jonathan Cain's synth work cloaks the quicker tunes and seeps into the ballads, slightly widening the strong partnership of Perry and Schon. "Faithfully" tried to match the powerful beauty of "Open Arms," and while it's a gorgeous ballad, it just comes inches away from conjuring up the same soft magic. "Separate Ways" grabs attention right off the bat with stinging synthesizer and a catchy guitar riff, and "Send Her My Love" emphasizes Perry's keen ability to pour his heart out. The rest of the songs on the album lack the warmth that Journey is famous for, especially in their mix of fervor and intimacy shown on this album's predecessor. Greatest Hits is singer-songwriter James Taylor's eighth album, and the best-selling album of his career. Released on November 1, 1976, the album featured newly recorded versions of "Carolina in My Mind" and "Something in the Way She Moves." Although the album did not rise higher than number 23 on the Billboard albums chart, it still holds the second longest tenure of any album with a total of 573 weeks (over 11 years) on that chart. Greatest Hits has sold over 11,000,000 copies certifying it as a platinum album eleven times over, and a diamond album once (for 10 million copies).
Released on August 27, 1991, Ten (named after Mookie Blaylock's jersey number) contained 11 tracks dealing with dark subjects like depression, suicide, loneliness, and murder. Many interpreted "Alive" as an inspirational anthem due to its chorus. Vedder has since revealed that the song tells the semi-biographical tale of a son discovering that his father is actually his step-father, while his mother’s grief turns her to sexually embrace her son, who strongly resembles the biological father. The song "Jeremy" and its accompanying video were inspired by a true story in which a high school student shot himself in front of his classmates. The album was slow to sell, but by the second half of 1992 it became a breakthrough success for the band, being certified gold and reaching number 2 on the Billboard charts. Ten produced the hit singles "Even Flow", "Alive", "Jeremy", and "Black". Ten stayed on the Billboard charts for more than two years, and has gone on to become one of the biggest-selling rock records ever, going twelve times platinum. Rumours is a worldwide best selling rock and roll album released by Fleetwood Mac in 1977. It was the second album recorded with this lineup, following the successful self-titled Fleetwood Mac album. In December 1976, prior to the release of the album, Reprise released the single "Go Your Own Way". As of 2007 the album has sold more than 30 million copies, and is one of the best selling albums of all time.
The Eagles are an American rock band that was formed in Los Angeles, California in the early 1970s. With five number-one singles and four number-one albums, the Eagles were among the most successful recording artists of the 1970s. At the end of the 20th century, two of their albums, Eagles: Their Greatest Hits 1971–1975 and Hotel California, ranked among the ten best-selling albums according to the Recording Industry Association of America. The best-selling studio album Hotel California is rated as the 37th album in the Rolling Stone list "The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time", and the band was ranked #75 on Rolling Stone's 2004 list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.

That's what might happen. They're asking the Food and Drug Administration to change the standards in which chocolate is made and classified, to "modernize" the making of chocolate. Hershey isn't the only company asking the question, it's everyone.
This is sacrilege! We all know that chocolate, even when its high in fat and calories, has a lot of health benefits too. And if people want to have diet chocolate or a chocolate substitute, there are plenty of products already on the market. Changing the taste of Hershey chocolate would be like changing America, damn it!
