Ragu has a new series of interesting commercials featuring kids. Yes, the spaghetti sauce company has some interesting and funny commercials. For instance one deals with one of the grossest yet loving feelings of when a mother cleans off our face with her spit, and another focuses on the importance of knocking before entering.

I read a “Mad Men” article in which Christina Hendricks and Matthew Weiner was being interviewed and I thought it made some interesting points that I wanted to let WifeGeeding know about. I’m not sure if she knew the actress that plays Joan is named Christina Hendricks, so before I started to tell the story I asked if she knew who Christina Hendricks was. Her reply, “The big boobs girl with red hair.” Heck, I was expected something more like, “Yeah, Joan off of Mad Men.”
Running Deer Shooting was an Olympic sport more than once . . . check out this interesting chart of Olympic sports of the past. The two-handed shot put should would look interesting, and I really would love to see the tug-of-war, but just the name of the sport of motor boating make me giggle.
