To commemorate her birthday, actress/vocalist, Julie Andrews made a special appearance at Manhattan’s Radio City Music Hall for the benefit of the AARP. One of the musical numbers she performed was ‘My Favorite Things’  from the legendary movie ‘Sound Of Music’.

Here are the lyrics she used:

 

(Sing It!) - If you sing it, its especially hysterical!!! 

Botox and nose drops and needles for knitting, 
Walkers and  handrails and new dental fittings, 
Bundles of magazines tied up in string, 
  These are a few of my favorite things. 
 
Cadillacs and cataracts, hearing aids and glasses, 
Polident and Fixodent and false teeth in glasses, 
Pacemakers, golf carts and porches with swings, 
  These are a few of my favorite things. 
 
When the pipes leak, When the bones creak, 
When the knees go bad, 
I simply remember my favorite things, 
     And then I don’t feel so bad. 
 
Hot tea and crumpets and corn pads for bunions, 
No spicy hot food or food cooked with onions, 
Bathrobes and heating pads and hot meals they bring, 
    These are a few of my favorite things. 
 
Back pain, confused brains and no need for sinnin’, 
Thin bones and fractures and hair that is thinnin’,   
And we won’t mention our short shrunken frames, 
  When we remember our favorite things.
 
When the joints ache, When the hips break, 
     When the eyes grow dim, 
Then I remember the great life I’ve had, 
      And then I don’t feel so bad.
 

Ms. Andrews received a standing ovation from the crowd that lasted over four minutes and repeated encores. Please share Ms. Andrews’ clever wit and humor with others who would appreciate it

Become a Foster/Adoptive Resource Parent in San Diegohttp://oneroofliving.com/become-a-fosteradoptive-resource-parent-in-san-diego/ http://oneroofliving.com/become-a-fosteradoptive-resource-parent-in-san-diego/#comments Tue, 08 Jul 2014 14:13:25 +0000 http://oneroofliving.com/?p=2652 kidsNurture a child for a little while…or a lifetime
Call Today 1-877-792-5437 (KIDS) 

In San Diego, many children need a home. These children have been neglected, abused or abandoned, and need the love, care and understanding of foster/adoptive resource parents.

What do foster/adoptive resource parents do?

Foster/adoptive resource parents are people who are concerned about the well-being of children and their families. They care for children and assist their families with reunification services. These children need loving care and a sense of belonging until their own families are able to care for them again. Children of all ages, with a variety of needs, are waiting to be welcomed into your home to become part of your family. For more information visit our County of San Diego Website

What Is a Foster Care Subsidy?http://oneroofliving.com/what-is-a-foster-care-subsidy/ http://oneroofliving.com/what-is-a-foster-care-subsidy/#comments Tue, 08 Jul 2014 14:01:45 +0000 http://oneroofliving.com/?p=2646 How Should a Foster Care Reimbursement or Foster Care Subsidy Be Used?

foster care

Subsidy, by definition, is a financial grant provided by the government. Foster care subsidy is a predetermined amount of money sent by the government to the foster parents on a monthly basis for the care of the foster children that have been placed within the foster home.

Where Does the Money Come From?

Within the United States the money comes from each individual state’s budget that has been set aside for the use of foster care. County and federal monies may also make up the foster care budget.

How Is the Foster Care Subsidy Amount Determined?

Each state or agency has a predetermined subsidy amount based on the state’s budget. A foster family may receive a larger subsidy depending on the needs of the child. Subsidy is usually determined based on the child’s:

  • age
  • medical needs
  • behaviors

Again, each state and agency is different.

What Is the Proper Use of the Foster Care Subsidy?

  • clothing for the foster children
  • food (foster children can also be a part of the free lunch program at your local school)
  • transportation
  • recreation
  • Some school fees – such as for sports, art classes, lab fees, agenda books, or other extra curricular activities
  • hygiene/personal care products
  • anything the child stands in need of

Remember, if an item was bought specifically for a foster child, than that item becomes the property of the child and should leave with the child when she moves. When purchasing larger items for the child’s bedroom, make sure the child understands whether the item is her property or that of the foster home. This will alleviate any misunderstandings or problems when the child is ready to move home or to an another foster home or adoptive placement.

Do Agencies Track the Usage of the Foster Care Subsidy?

Some agencies require that foster parents track the use of the foster care subsidy. Other agencies require that a dollar amount go directly to the personal care of the child, such as diapers, clothing, or recreation. Receipts or a budget may be a monthly requirement for some agencies in order to prove that the foster children are being taken care of properly with the subsidy.

Do Some People Misuse the Foster Care Subsidy?

Yes, unfortunately some families do take advantage of the foster care reimbursement. Before becoming a foster parent you must prove that you are financially fit and can take care of your family’s needs without the foster care subsidy. If you are unable to care for your own family without the aid of the subsidy, you can not become a licensed foster parent. However, even those who can prove that they do not need the monthly subsidy, go ahead and become foster parents and misuse the funds for their own personal gain. Agencies do their best to keep this from happening.

Foster Care Subsidy Is NOT:

  • A great way to supplement your income.
  • A home business.
  • A way to pay off your mortgage.
  • A way to buy a jet ski or motorcycle.
  • A way to send your kids to college.
  • A way for your kids to get name branded clothing such as GapAbercrombie, or Hollister (fill in your child’s favorite brand here).

Foster Care is a wonderful experience and can add much to your life, it shouldn’t, however, add to your pocket book.
