Pets Not Partners, My Two Moms, Out Top 100

Hey there blogger friends. Just a couple quick things that caught my eye today. I hope you all know that despite Miami Beach, Fort Lauderdale and the Keyes, Florida is still one of the most homophobic states around when it comes to gay rights. Blogger friend Rosie O'Donnell brought it glaringly to light when she had to let friends adopt the foster girl she had brought into her home, (called Mia at the time,) because gays can be foster parents in Florida, but cannot adopt. It unfortunately comes as no shock to me today, that a Florida College Approves Medical Plans For Employee's Pets, Denies Benefits For Domestic Partners. C'mon now, really?? Although I do think that PETA is a little whacked in the head most of the time anyway, but insurance for employee's pets before an employee's lover? Somethings are just too crazy even for me.

On a brighter note however in the Bible Belt of the country, Omaha, Nebraska, we have a Cartoon That Features Two Moms. "Buddy G - My Two Moms and Me" a five year old boy named Buddy who loves science and solves daily problems with the help of his sidekick "Socrates," an armband computer with Internet capabilities The series was created by Margaux and Donna Towne-Colley who say it was inspired by the birth of their own son The premiere DVD can be ordered from the cartoon's website: and retails for $10.00.

While enjoying my weekly Barnes and Noble Latte on Sunday, I did have the chance to peruse OUT magazine and it's annual Top 100 Out Peoples, or some such thing. It was a good read, although moi was not included, those damn hiatus' seem to knock you out of the running everytime, ah well, I digress. Anywho, I was happy to know a couple of those included, like Andy Cohen of Bravo, ( okay, so I dont know him-know him, but we have exchanged pleasant emails), and a scribe and a songbird, (you can figure those friends out on your own). There are a few I wanted to know more about, so I picked up the zine and will make some inquiries. Who knows, maybe I will have an OUT 100 up for cyber tea and a lil old interview or something. I am out blogger friends.........take care and Happy Monday............GG
