Miss America Pageant was amazing so here we go about my comments one for all I think all of them have gorgeous smiles! Miss Mississippi's talent was so amazing Miss Arkansas’s song breathtaking Miss Oklahoma's dance was graceful and poised and I loved the music Miss Massachusetts's piano playing was incredible I could never do that I would be so scared to mess up one note. Miss Ohio's was hilarious and full of life Miss Florida's dance was okay I would have done slower in the beginning due to the song but that is just me I loved the song Note to God. Miss Tennessee has Loved her intro to her song "he does not deserve airtime...” you go girl!

I have been challenged by Angie Lloyd Love and Jill McMichael Cochran to pray for 10 people. I am fulfilling this challenge in a different way. In honor of the Miss America Pageant this week, and Miss America's national platform of Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, I challenge everyone to pray for children who are battling an illness. More specifically, September is Go Gold month in order to increase awareness for pediatric cancer. Please pray for the children and their families affected by this disease. Prayer works!! More specifically, I am praying for Mandi Posey Paris' entire family as her daughter Mary Elizabeth is battling this now. I also continue to keep sweet Tori Svenson Penny Svenson in our prayers who has shown us that prayer works in the fight of this disease.

POSITIVE PERSPECTIVE By Ron McClung Have you seen the quiz that has circulated on the Internet for the past fifteen years or so? Instead of actually trying to answer these questions, just read straight through the quiz and the point will become clear: 1. Name the five wealthiest people in the world. 2. Name the last five Heisman trophy winners. 3. Name the last five winners of the Miss America Pageant. 4. Name ten people who have won the Nobel Prize or the Pulitzer Prize. 5. Names the last half dozen Academy Award winners for best actor or best actress. 6. Name the last decade’s worth of World Series winners. Hard to do, isn’t it? In fact, my guess is that you found it impossible. If you look at the people whose names would actually appear in the answers to those questions, you are looking at a lot of first-rate achievers. These people performed in some outstanding way or they never would have achieved the status referred to in each question. They were arguably the very best in their fields. Now here ...
Norma Smallwood - Born Norma Des Cygne Smallwood, she was a full blood Cherokee Indian from Tulsa, Oklahoma. While as a student at Oklahoma State University, she entered the Miss America Pageant in 1926 and was crowned the first Native American to win the title. During the year of her reign, she had an acute business sense demanding a fee for appearances. She reportedly made over 100,000 dollars, more than either Babe Ruth or the President of the United States.

Ticket sales are barely at 55 as of yesterday. We know to expect lots more. The box office opens one hour before the show and people will be standing in line for tickets. We highly advise as many as possible to buy their tickets online. If you have young girls they are going to want to come inside and see all of the title holders from the Miss America pageant. Don't miss that opportunity by standing in line!
I love this quote. It embodies what the Miss America pageant system is all about. "There must be something bigger driving you than winning this crown. Because if you don't win, you need to be able to walk away okay with who you are and the direction you are headed, and if you do win... it's only yours for one year. Have a vision beyond the crown. Be yourself. If you try to be who you think the judges are looking for instead of just trusting in who you are as a person, you will waste your time comparing yourself to other girls and trying to figure out if you should be more like them. And if you do win, after having conformed yourself to what you think the judges want, you will have to spend a year either lying, or putting on a show, both of which are exhausting. Be you, it's good enough." - Leah Sykes, MAOTeen 2014

Lynn here-we saw a couple things this weekend that were upsetting, my intention is not to offend, but enlighten. we went to the 4th Friday uptown-first-leggings are not "pants"-leggings are meant to be worn with a LONG tunic top and that includes girls in their early teens, leggings are just "tights" without feet. Some are meant to be worn at the gym or in athletic activities, with athletic LONGER tops or sweatshirts. If your daughter's cheeks are visible below the leg opening of the SHORTS she is wearing, she needs longer shorts, if you a parent choose to allow your daughter to have her belly button pierced or get a tattoo and she is twelve or thirteen, that is your choice, some of us who are not even prudes are more than a little stunned that a girl so young has had these things done and that we are being provided with the knowledge of that because her garments are noodle strap belly shirt, and the shorts with the cheeks exposed. We ourselves have experienced the "argument" that so and so did or does th ...

Tomorrow mom will be 93 years old. When Nellie Alice Mcfarland was born in 1921 the Great Depression had paralyzed the citizens of our country. The Mcfarland family was struggling to survive in their rag hand-me-down clothing. The pot belly stove inside the Mcfarland’s tar paper shack home was there only source of heat against the cold winter weather. That year Warren G. Harding is inaugurated as the 29th President of the United States and the United States formally ends World War I, declaring a peace with Germany. If Harry and Amanda Mcfarland had owned a radio they might have heard the first radio baseball game that was broadcast from Forbes Field over Westinghouse KDKA, in Pittsburgh or about the increasing number of raids on speakeasies from Prohibition. In the news, in Atlantic City, New Jersey, the first Miss America Pageant was held and that during the Armistice Day ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery, the Tomb of the Unknowns was dedicated. We live in a vastly different world than mom expe . ...
DID YOU KNOW...Delta Burke of "Designing Women" fame had competed in the 1975 Miss America Pageant as Miss Florida, 1974---
Interesting... BMW Produces Documentary That Will Air As Time-Buy on NBC The automaker’s North America division has built six two-person bobsleds for the U.S. Winter Olympic team and has produced a documentary titled Driving on Ice about the development process that will air on NBC this Sunday. In addition to paying NBC to air it, BMW will also run two paid commercials in the documentary. UM Studios, the content unit of Universal McCann, handled the production and KBS&P is handling the advertising. Why This Matters: Programming time-buys on broadcast networks are often a good way to reach a mass audience and this one contains legit content as opposed to being a blatantly branded infomercial. So many viewers may not even realize it’s a time-buy. When the Miss America Pageant returned to ABC in 2011, it did so as a time-buy. Source: New York Times
Wild 4 The 80s History Lesson: Thursday, January 2nd, 2014! 1980: Officials of the Miss America Pageant announced that Bert Parks would not return as host of the annual beauty contest in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Parks sang “There she is, Miss America” for 25 years. He was replaced by Ron Ely, television's Tarzan. 1983: The final edition of Garry Trudeau’s comic strip, "Doonesbury", appeared in 726 newspapers. "Doonesbury" began running again in September 1984. Also, the musical "Annie" closed on Broadway at the Uris Theatre after 2,377 performances. 1985: The Rebels of UNLV beat Utah State in three overtime periods. The final score of 142-140 set a new NCAA record for total points in a basketball game (282). The game took over three hours to play. 1987: The most watched college football game was played this day, as Joe Paterno’s Nittany Lions of Penn State defeated the Miami Hurricanes, 14-10, at the Fiesta Bowl in Tempe, Arizona. The game was so popular that it beat Dallas and Falcon Crest in t ...
Pridelets from Tommy for December 17, 2013 1955, according to the New York Times, the Roman Catholics of Camden New Jersey are organizing an effort to "prevent the naming of a new Delaware River Bridge after Walt Whitman." But it's not because of Whitman's homosexuality (which they refuse to acknowledge) it's because his works are "homoerotic." ("'Homosexual' equates to 'sex perversion', while 'homoerotic' merely implies 'a strong affection for man.'" 1963, "The New York Times" warns that a "Growth of Overt Homosexuality in City Provokes Wide Concern (about public safety.)" 1987, Bert Parks hosts Atlantic City's "US Man of the Year Pageant."

How Now The Stench of Racism: Agaiin, we have shown how racist a country we are. The new Miss America, the Miss New York entrant into the Miss America Pageant, Nina Davuluri,the first Indian American , should not have to defend herself against such disgusitng racial epithets tossed out at her following her victory. This lovely, accomplished, and most intelligent young woman has faced her critics unflinchingly by stating emphatically that she is first and foremost an American. May your rein be unblemished from this time forward.
Today as I was standing in line to pay for my groceries, I noticed this elderly lady was staring at me. I just smile at her, then she gave me the nicest comment. She said you should enter the Miss America Pageant. I said, oh no, I am too old for that. She said you cannot be older than 25. I just said you are so kind. That really made my day when it started out not going so well, but ended on a good note. Life is Good!

"Controversy at the Miss America Pageant, Miss North Dakota's talent was fracking." -- Stephen Colbert
First of all, she's Indian. Second of all, whether she's Arab, Chinese, Indian, or has roots from Ghana, she's qualified candidate and now winner of the Miss America Pageant. The American label is not reserved for just white or black people. We're ALL Americans.
Earlier tonight, Miss New York, Nina Davuluri, an Indian-American woman, was crowned the winner of the 2014 Miss America Pageant. *** racists got so mad, they started mixing up Indian, Indian-American, Arab, Muslim, and everything in between.

RESPONDING TO FAILURE “A righteous person may fall…but he gets up again.” Pr 24:16 GWT You can tell a lot about somebody by how they respond to life. Everybody gets knocked down, but how fast you get up again is what counts. Verla Gillmor says: “Failure teaches us things we can’t learn any other way…Treat it as a visitor allowed to deliver unpleasant news, but don’t let it take up residence. Remember, all failures aren’t equal. For example, when a beautiful, talented young woman is first-runner-up in the Miss America Pageant, we say she failed. Yet some people would give their right arm to be named the second most attractive female in a national competition. It’s a matter of perspective… [examine] your failures and weigh them according to their importance in the overall scheme of things…I once received a ‘D’ in college…it’s ridiculous, but that sticks in my mind like a pebble in my shoe. Why do I fixate on that and not the fact that it happened the semester I carried nineteen ...

I've seen people yell at tvs during sporting events and such but I've never seen anyone as serious as all that as Tay just was about the Miss America Pageant. She was yelling!!!
The questions and some of the answers on the Miss America Pageant is the most embarrassing thing I have ever witnessed
I am horrified at the answers that are being given during the Miss America Pageant ... But seriously, it's a 'scholarship program' (indicating these girls are actually fairly intelligent). My personal favorite ... " ... we need to create education."
Looking for a "sparkly" dress for the Miss America Pageant is kind of fun! It would be more fun though if I was a size 2!!!

Another great Article about Kevin McAleese: Philadelphia Inquirer Kevin J. McAleese, 55; veteran helped revive Miss Philadelphia pageant Kevin McAleese Vernon Clark, Inquirer Staff Writer POSTED: TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 19, 2013, 3:01 AM Kevin J. McAleese, 55, of Fairmount, a retired colonel in the Army Reserve who revived the Miss Philadelphia Pageant, died Friday, Feb. 15, of cancer in hospice care at a friend's home in Pottstown. He had been active in the Miss America Pageant as a volunteer. In the early 1990s, Mr. McAleese was called to escort some Miss America contestants in the Philadelphia area. It was through his work with Miss America that he became interested in reviving the Miss Philadelphia pageant, which had gone dormant in the mid-1980s, colleagues said. He brought the contest back in 1996 and served as executive director, enlisting the help of sponsors, volunteers, and others, colleagues said. The pageant has been held every year since under his leadership. The event awarded more than $150,000 in ...
From the Atlantic City Press - February 19th - Miss America's return / Welcome back Posted: Tuesday, February 19, 2013 12:01 am How oddly appropriate that the announcement of the Miss America Pageant's return to Atlantic City came on Valentine's Day. Like a jilted lover who can't quite get over his ex, the city has never really stopped pining for the pageant. Atlantic City loves its history, and the pageant, which started as the Inter-City Beauty Contest in 1921, a promotion to bring visitors to the resort after Labor Day, is a big part of that history. Over the years, Miss America and its attendant parade drew crowds and stars - Marilyn Monroe was the parade's grand marshal in 1952 - and became not just a nationally known event, but a hit television show as well. In the dark years of the late 1960s and early 1970s, when the resort was losing summer visitors and its grand hotels were beginning to crumble, the pageant remained an annual bright spot. But, as the Bard might say, the course of true love can b ...
Tyson Found Guilty of Rape, Two Other Charges By Alison MuscatineThe Washington Post INDIANAPOLIS An Indianapolis jury Monday night found boxer Mike Tyson guilty of raping an 18-year-old beauty pageant contestant. The jury deliberated for nine hours before rendering its verdict, which included convictions on two counts of criminal deviate conduct. Judge Patricia J. Gifford asked Tyson to surrender his passport but allowed him to be free on his original bond of $30,000. She also required him to be at the probation department Tuesday morning for pre-sentencing investigation. She set sentencing for March 6. Tyson could face a maximum of 60 years in prison. Sources indicated the defense would appeal the verdict. Shortly before 11 p.m., Tyson entered the courtroom in the Marion County courthouse and, like a boxer entering the ring, marched to the defense table where he has sat for most of the 14-day trial. Moments later, the jury returned to the courtroom and the foreman identified himself to the jud ...

THANK YOU DESERT HOT SPRINGS FOR THIS VERY IMPORTANT EMAIL! Proud to be White— But there is more than That. I have been wondering about why Whites are racists, and no other race is. Michael Richards makes his point... Michael Richards better known as Kramer from TVs Seinfeld does make a good point. This was his defense speech in court after making racial comments in his comedy act. He makes some very interesting points... Someone finally said it. How many are actually paying attention to this? There are African Americans, Mexican Americans, Asian Americans, Arab Americans, etc. And then there are just Americans.. You pass me on the street and sneer in my direction. You call me 'White boy,' *** ' *** ' 'Whitey,' 'Caveman'... And that's OK... But when I call you, *** *** Towel head, Sand *** Camel Jockey, *** *** or *** .. You call me a racist. You say that whites commit a lot of violence against you. So why are the ghettos the most dangerous places to live? You have the United ...

Im not quite sure what I just witnessed! You know it's one thing to watch false, vapid and vacuous TV from North America but when it's from your own shores it just looks and sounds worse. Is this what we had in mind when we clamor for more local content on TV? Ah guess we shouldn't complain then. Tune in next week!

Atlantic City New Jersey held the first miss America pageant
I hear I am being bashed all over some stupid page. I refuse to ruin this beautiful day to argue with a mad drama mama. My pageants are JUDGED on the THEME. Pro shots do not always win. If it says snapshots ONLY then it is snapshots. If it says PRO shots ONLY , then that's the way it's judged. I know there's an *** in every bunch, let's not let it be you! I would be ashamed of my self for saying the stuff thats being said and making a child feel as if they werent good enough to win. Thats so sad. This is a competition. The Judges are not paid. They judge based on the theme, not the background of the pic, unless thats the theme. The Judges go on their impression. This is not Miss America Pageant...this is a picture pageant, and it is suppose to be fun, so stop taking the fun out ofit. Yes I have repeat winners also. So If anyone is unhappy, or dont like me, or my system, there's a very simple solution. DO NOT ENTER.gez

New Jersey saw, and seized, chance to bring back Miss America By JENNIFER BOGDAN, Staff Writer | Posted: Friday, February 15, 2013 2:30 am Eighty-four years passed before Miss America decided to leave Atlantic City, but it took just six weeks of conversations to get her back. The Miss America Organization has agreed to return the pageant to its birthplace this September for a three-year run broadcast on ABC. Financial terms of the deal and the cost of putting on the show at historic Boardwalk Hall remained shrouded Thursday as the parties have not yet signed a contract. Dates haven’t yet been set, but officials confirmed that the return of the pageant will also mean the return of the Miss America Parade, once again giving spectators a reason to call out, “Show us your shoes.” Miss America organization's finances have dwindled “No matter what it costs ... I don’t think you can put a price tag on what it means to Atlantic City,” Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno said at the announcement. “The value to Atl ...
