Awesome!

Whenever a parent plans a birthday party for their child and invites other kids to come attend, there’s always a fear, deep inside the heart, that no one will show up and a heartbroken child will be left feeling rejected and worthless.

What is most parent’s nightmare became one family’s reality after a six-year-old invited 30 kids to his party and not a single one of them showed up. Teddy, the child in our story, gave invitations to his 32 kindergarten classmates and their parents to join him and his family at Peter Piper Pizza in Tuscon, Arizona.

“I’m done with parties for a while,” Mazzini quipped to the station following the en masse no show. But she did snap a photo of Teddy at the table alone, save for uneaten pizza and paper plates with no one sitting in front of them.

Mazzini told KSAZ-TV that she made goodie bags for his classmates, each containing an invite — and that the day prior to the party she even spoke to some of parents who said they’d be there.

“His birthday was actually October 3rd, but because his dad works in Alaska and was able to come the 18th, I organized the whole party for the 21st,” she told KSAZ.

Mazzini told KNXV the family planned to celebrate Teddy’s birthday Monday night by reading birthday wishes that poured in from social media users after a Tuscon reporter posted photos of Teddy alone at this own party.

What’s more, the Phoenix Rising soccer team invited Teddy to its playoff game Friday, KNXV reported, adding that a team spokesperson said fans reached out to the club wanting to know how they could help out — with some even offering to buy a customized jersey for Teddy.

As if that’s not cool enough, the Phoenix Suns invited Teddy and his family out to their game against the Lakers on Wednesday. How cool is that?

Isn’t it just simply awesome to see folks come together to do something nice for a young man who no doubt was feeling pretty awful about what happened?

Let’s hope that the teacher of his class makes his classmates offer him an apology for treating him the way they did. And those parents ought to be ashamed of themselves for the poor example they set for their children by not having any of them attend.

American Music Icon Dead at 72; Was Set to Tour This Summer

Rest in peace, amigo.

When it comes to gritty guitars and even grittier songs, there is no act quite like that little ol’ band from Texas. ZZ Top mainlined American blues standards directly into the electric era of 1970’s rock, and then reinvented the genre once again with the synthesizers of the 1980’s.  From there, the band toured the world incessantly, bringing their grimy grooves and unforgettable stage presence to audiences from Dusseldorf to Delaware. Now, just weeks before the band was set to take to the road once again, one member of the holy triumvirate of honky-tonk has passed away. Dusty Hill, the bassist for ZZ Top, has died. He was 72. Billy Gibbons and Frank Beard of the Texas-based trio issued a statement to Variety on Tuesday, writing: “We are saddened by the news today that our Compadre, Dusty Hill, has passed away in his sleep at home in Houston, TX. We, along with legions of ZZ Top fans around the world, will miss your steadfast presence, your good nature and enduring commitment to providing that monumental bottom to the ‘Top’. We will forever be connected to that ‘Blues Shuffle in C.’” And then, echoing the sentiments of music fans the nation over: “You will be missed greatly, amigo,” the statement added. We couldn’t have said it better ourselves, so we’ll just leave you all with a classic. Make sure to turns those speakers up, y’all. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s5WB5ouP-8c

Mask Mandates Coming Back to Capitol Hill After CDC Switcheroo

This isn’t likely to go over well with some lawmakers.

Published

With the “delta” variant now raging in some parts of the country, and breakthrough infections of vaccinated individuals continuing to be reported, the CDC has made a stark decision, stating that even vaccinated folks should be wearing a mask when they are indoors or in parts of the country with high COVID transmission rates. This has now prompted the House of Representatives to bring back a previously criticized policy themselves. Capitol Attending Physician Brian Monahan said late Tuesday that the House of Representatives is reinstating its mask mandate – and therefore the threat of fines to members who don’t comply – following updated guidance from the Centers from Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on the delta variant of the coronavirus. The White House also appears to be going back to mandated masks. A White House press representative was seen Tuesday swapping a sign saying people are required to wear masks if unvaccinated with another saying masks are required regardless of vaccination status. Monahan didn’t leave much room for interpretation. “For the Congress, representing a collection of individuals traveling weekly from various risk areas (both high and low rates of disease transmission), all individuals should wear a well-fitted, medical-grade filtration mask (for example an ear loop surgical mask or a KN95 mask) when they are in an interior space,” Monahan said in a letter sent to congressional staffers. The move will almost certainly see pushback from the far right side of the aisle, where the mandating of masks has been a very unpopular policy, and a point of contention in almost every arena in which it has been implemented.
