Beyond The Pale

I was perusing the news on the internet the other day. We all know that one story can lead to another and that's what happened this day.

I clicked over to a UK site to read a story and saw another story on the site, with photos—uuugghhh. The story was about a nudist man opening a spa for nudists. That wasn't the disgusting part. The disgusting part was the news show had him and 3 others, another man and 2 women, on the television show. Nude. All of them. The women had a "paper daisy" pasted on the tip of the breast and they all had their hands in their laps, blocking view of the most private area, which didn't do much disguising.

Now, I have no problem with people who want to run around naked in their own homes or at designated camps, which are out of the sight of others, especially children, but to put them on television for any kid or adult to see goes beyond the pale in my book. Why would a program want to air something so disgusting? Don't dare tell me the human body isn't disgusting! I don't think it is. Displaying it for all to see certainly is though.

I have told friends for years things are going to get worse and they just did. How low can we go? I'm afraid it's not going to get better, but much, much worse. I hope they gave them towels to sit on while on the sofa because I doubt many would want to sit on it after they've been there.

When I saw these rings I thought they were beautiful. Now we can have colors in our wedding rings.

Lovely lavender cup and saucer.

Yes, I truly love these old vintage sinks.

Lovely decorated cage.

Another gorgeous bottle.

Sweet brooch.

One of my favorite things: laundry drying on a line in the sun.

Darling center piece of bird nests with blue eggs.

Suitcase full of flowers.

Another cottage in the woods.

Romantic soaps.

Colorful window display of old pots with flowers in them.

Just what our roses look like this morning. We had snow last night.

A sweet pink restaurant along a quaint street somewhere in Europe.

Cuter than a button. ;-)

Tidbit: In 1954, Brownie Wise was the first woman to appear on the cover of Businessweek. Who was Brownie Wise? A housewife who made Tupperware what it is today. She didn't invent it, just came up with the idea of home parties.


  1. Hi Connie! I would have switched channel faster than the blink of an eye. I'm with you when you say you hope they gave them a towel to sit on. That perfume bottle would be a keeper forever and ever! I admire the Europeans for their love of colour. They're not afraid to use it. Some home owners not too far from where I live painted their stucco house a very dark blue and people found it shocking but only because we're not used to it. I love it. It's like a breath of fresh air! It would be so super duper to have a clothesline! I'm in a highrise! I miss that fresh smell of the clothes just coming in from outside. There's a lot to be said for dryers, however. I remember a time when I would put up lines in my home and hang up my laundry to dry in the winter or during a string of rainy days. We had to duck here and there to avoid the clothes. They were the good old days, though, because back then my children were young and so was I. Have a nice day!

  2. That program is just, immoral, gross, & disgusting. As bad as things get in the world, The Lord walks with me every second of everyday. Blessings Paula Lusk

  3. I do think that it isn't really appropriate for the general audience. I love the tea cup! It is so beautiful!


  4. The world, Connie, has become so accepting of every thing that is against God's commandments. There is a fading away of morals and they bring their children right into the den of snakes...and you are will become much worse.
    When my mother was a teen-ager, she could not watch Elvis Presley...Granddad thought his hip shaking was vulgar...he would have a heart attack if he saw how they dance 1976 I was pregnant with my daughter and at that time, they were not showing female personal hygeine products, condoms, and viagra...I don't think there is one thing they have not shown or reported on.
    In the bible it talks about a man, a good man, who was stoned to death because he gathered sticks on the sabbath to light a fire for his family....Numbers 15: 33-36
