May 22, 2016

“People in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.”

those who live in glass houses, people who live in glass houses, shouldn't throw stones, glass house
Such a stunning image.

A got a late start to this post, as I was working on one I have scheduled tomorrow.

Anyway, maybe this topic speaks to me because of recent events.

An alternate to this saying is, “Those who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.” Either way, let’s look at the origin of this famous saying.

Famous Sayings: #9 — ‘The Hand That Rocks the Cradle…’

May 8, 2016

The hand the rocks the cradle rules the world.

Honestly, when I was planning this, I totally forgot to account for Mother’s Day in the United States. (The same is true for Father’s Day, but I should start looking ahead for that, too, now.)

If anyone has seen it, there was a 1991 movie starring Rebecca DeMornay called “The Hand That Rocks the Cradle.” Without giving away any spoilers, it was a thriller and DeMornay was the villainess.
