Bad Neighbor - Hire Edward Scissorhands

Video Hosting - Upload Video - Video Sharing

Have a bad neighbor? You could always tell him to kiss your ass by hiring Edward Scissorhands to put this bush in your otherwise perfectly clean lawn just by the bad neighbor's fence?

I am so bad. But what a nice way to express negative truth without confrontation and never break a law?

Global Warming - There's Proof

Wow, I never really gave the global warming thing too much credit, but it must be true. I almost feel like I can relate to this time line in that I've tried to get my underwear to shrink, but at my age, it's going the other way ! Good thing KC still loves me :)

Desecrate The Flag - NOT ON MY WATCH

Video Hosting - Upload Video - Video Sharing

Today, our government attempted to pass a law that would make it a punishable offense to desecrate the American flag and it DID NOT PASS BY ONE FUCKING VOTE !!

Read Story Here

I know that the “others” are all about the freedom of speech law, and I know that there are BIGGER fish to fry according to others, but this is what I CANNOT BELIEVE...


Sorry guys, stand up and speak. Without the ability to solve the no-brainer simple problems, this government is in dire peril. And don’t for one minute bash George Bush on this one, I GUARANTEE YOU given the freedom to actually speak his mind, he would kick some ass and take some names on the mere thought itself!

Remember this people, coming straight from the soap box, IF YOU DON’T STAND FOR SOMETHING, YOU WILL FALL FOR ANYTHING. If our country doesn’t get a real handle on this one soon, our simple matters very trivial, and our huge matters with results of biblical proportion will all end up the same, FUBAR. And please forgive me, but sometimes foul language is the only way to describe some major points, FUBAR means quite simply...fucked up beyond any repair. Forgive my “French”.

Puff The Magic Dragon - XXX Rated Beware

I stated XXX rated, it is. Please scroll down through all the memories, and please do not shoot me for the photos at the end :)

Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea. And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called honah lee. Little jackie paper loved that rascal Puff,And brought him strings and sealing wax and other fancy stuff.

Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea and frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called honah lee.

Together they would travel on a boat with billowed sail. Jackie kept a lookout perched on Puff's gigantic tail, Noble kings and princes would bow wheneer they came, Pirate ships would lower their flag when puff roared out his name.

Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea and frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called honah lee, Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea and frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called honah lee.

A dragon lives forever but not so little boys. Painted wings and giant rings make way for other toys. One grey night it happened, Jackie Paper came no more. And Puff that mighty dragon, he ceased his fearless roar.

His head was bent in sorrow, green scales fell like rain, Puff no longer went to play along the cherry lane. Without his life-long friend, Puff could not be brave, So Puff that mighty dragon sadly slipped into his cave.

Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea. And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called honah lee. Puff, the magic dragon lived by the seaAnd frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called honah lee.

One of my favorite songs by Peter, Paul, and Mary.


I do NOT promote vulgarity on this site, but this one I could not resist. Puff the magic dragon was always one of my childhood favorites. I do NOT know if this is a real tattoo, or just painted henna art, but either one, this nut job had to go through some pain to make this happen. Why do I have evil funny thoughts when I see something like this, and why did I laugh so hard? Not only is this guy a total oddball for this act on his own body that in church we are taught “the body is the temple of the Lord, respect it as such”, and yet the evil side of me thinks, “WHAT A BLOODY WORK OF STUPID ART!”

Darren Mack In Custody - Hope He Dies

Video Hosting - Upload Video - Video Sharing

Darren Mack, wanted for the gruesome murder of his estranged wife and for shooting the judge presiding over his divorce case was extradited today from Puerto Vallarta Mexico. He was recently spotted beside a swimming pool at the posh resort, and made his own arrangements to turn himself in.

This guy is a complete tool, and any man that could brutally murder the mother of his child in cold blood in the garage of their lavish home, and then become a sniper in a parking garage hoping to murder the judge who ordered child support payments he was unhappy with deserves to die. It’s too bad that our death penalty laws cannot morally provide the person to die in exactly the manner in which he took a life. I personally think he should be shot from a window at the jail in a non-fatal manner, and then have his sorry ass drug to the very garage where he murdered his daughter’s mother and be thrown into her blood stain and stabbed to death the same way he took her life.

Thank goodness the case has come to a close without further damage to anyone else. And, thank goodness I am not in charge of his demise, I wouldn’t give him the time of day, just gone. Another loser bites the dust. Maybe now, this man that so enjoyed “alternative lifestyle” sex parties will enjoy the new alternative lifestyle ahead of him in prison. Maybe he can become Scott Peterson’s little bitch.

BB-Q Big Butt Comment Joke

Video Hosting - Upload Video - Video Sharing

Some husbands aren’t so smart with jokes at the wife’s expense :)

A man and wife were enjoying an evening in their backyard. The husband was barbequing on the grill, and the wife was picking some weeds in the flower bed while they visited. The husband looked on at the wife, and mentioned, “Honey, your butt is getting quite large. I think your butt is bigger than my barbeque grill.” Sure enough, he measured the grill, and then ran a tape measure across the wife’s butt, and it was two inches wider than the grill.

The wife did not make too much of the husband’s rude comment, but grinned and made the evening and their dinner pleasant.

Later that evening in bed, the husband was feeling frisky. He began to make his moves on the wife, and was surprised to find her non-responsive, and a bit hostile. He asked what was wrong, and she stated, “Do you actually think I am going to fire up this big ass grill for one tiny wienie?”

PLEASE MAKE YOUR TEENAGE SONS AWARE OF THIS STORY…and know this story was told to me by other concerned parents I know, I was not present for the facts, nor do I pretend to know all hearsay is the truth…but I believe the people I spoke with.

Tis the season for post graduation parties, and the typical summer “groove” for the kids. None of us who are parents should be so naive as to believe our little darlings don’t attend some of them. Thank God, I was blessed with two sons. I love my boys, and so far, they’ve both turned out to be very nice young men. However, all teenagers at one time or another run into bumps in the road.

I am definitely a “man’s woman”. I don’t have a lot of use for “chicks”, and am very happy I have boys. I cannot stand “fluffy little princesses” that give our boys a bad name. I’m really tired of girls always playing the victim and making their own problems somehow the responsibility of others, and many times in deceitful fashion. The following story is just the latest drama in our local neighborhood. Fortunately, my boys weren’t at this party, but three really nice young men I know of were. Because of one freshman girl (to be a sophomore next school year), some nice young men are being drug through the ringer, and one young man yet to be identified may very well have his young life ruined by an irresponsible young lady. FOR THE RECORD, THE STORY COULD TURN OUT TO HAVE A TRAGIC ENDING, SO I WANT TO GO ON RECORD, THAT I HOPE THE YOUNG LADY WAS NOT DEFIED IN A SENSELESS WAY… The story goes as follows…

Reno weather is finally beautiful and the summer is beginning with happy graduates and underclassmen happy to be out of school. In a nice neighborhood, some teenagers are having a pool party. While we would all hope that our children don’t drink, don’t be silly, they do. As did we, they have a few beers, a few cocktails and enjoy the sun and water. One young lady had taken some Skyy Vodka from her parent’s house. As so often happens, young first time drinkers don’t know what alcohol can do to you, and drink irresponsibly trying to “show everyone else” how “cool” they are. She was drinking the flavored vodka like Kool-Aid, and became quite drunk and sloppy. Other people at the party reported her a chocolate mess, bawling and crying one minute, attempting to dance and be cool the next, only to result in completely passing out on a couch. No one wants to be around someone like that at a party and be responsible to baby-sit the uncontrollable. Two neighborhood boys agreed to load her in a vehicle and get her home safely. About ten minutes later, they phoned another young man at the party to let everyone know she was home safe and sound and they were gone and on their way home too.

A few days later, my friend (one of the boy’s mother) got a phone call from a detective at our local county jail advising her to bring her son in for an interview. Quite shocked, she asked why? She was told that her son was not believed to be in any trouble, but it was a known fact that he was present at a certain pool party, and they needed to speak to him about an incident that occurred that evening.

My friend took her son in, and was advised that the young lady mentioned above was found at home that evening by her parents when they came home to be completely incoherent and non-responsive. Her father is a local policeman. Panicked about their daughter’s state, they rushed her to the local hospital. She did not even come to, until examination was proceeding in the emergency room. Upon revival, and seeing her parents over her and many hospital personnel working on her, (I am supposing she was freaked out and knew her butt was in BIG TROUBLE); she began to cry RAPE.

The hospital worked up a rape kit on this girl, and it was determined that she had been in the act of sexual intercourse. Now, no one yet knows with whom she had sex with, all that is known is that it WAS NOT the two young men that took her home. She could have be engaged in sex before the party, or perhaps left the home after she was dropped off. Or, someone could have come into the home and violated her after the boys left. I certainly hope no foul play happened to this girl…but that is NOT the point of my story.

The boys that took her home were also interviewed, and couldn’t give up their DNA fast enough. They have phone records to prove that they were gone about ten minutes to give her a ride home. They reportedly told officials that they don’t even like this girl, and they were sickened by her lack of responsibility and appearance, but didn’t want to see her ridiculed in public, or unsafe to herself, so they agreed to make sure she got home safely.

IMPORTANT FACTS GIVEN TO THE BOYS BY THE LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICIALS: All of the boys were warned sternly about the law. I was not even aware of these facts, and quite frankly I find it unfair to members of the male sex. When a female has a blood alcohol level as high as this young lady’s was (and mind you, several hours passed before her blood was taken), THE CHARGE OF RAPE WILL STICK AND A GUILTY VERDICT IS EASY TO GET, because according to the law, with very high blood alcohol content, a woman is not considered to have the cognitive reasoning power to SAY NO. Even CONSENSUAL SEX, and even sex SEDUCED BY THE FEMALE, can be construed as LEGITIMATE RAPE if the girl is drunk and not in control of herself.

Boys, be responsible for yourselves at parties where young ladies are drinking. Be aware of statutory and real rape laws. DO NOT HAVE SEX WITH REALLY DRUNK GIRLS, and men too, drunken women of any age can pull this act of ruining your life if they change their minds later after sobering up and realizing what a fool they made of themselves. Make sure if you are helping someone too messed up to take care of themselves you try to have females take females home, or at least have females present to help them into their homes and vouch for their safety. Make sure if you give a drunk person a ride home that you lock all the doors on your way out so that nothing can happen to them if someone is able to walk in.

DON’T DRINK UNDER AGE AT SUMMER PARTIES is the best rule, it’s all illegal and your parents may be held liable for thousands of dollars in damages if anyone leaving your party has an incident. Young men of age should be VERY AWARE of the demise that can befall you if you engage in sexual activity with under age girls. BE VERY AFRAID OF A PISSED OFF FATHER OR BROTHER. Your life can hang in one stupid move.

AND FINALLY….PLEASE….WILL THE DUMB STUPID CHICKS IN THIS WORLD PLEASE BE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOURSELVES… If you don’t slurp up all the cool cocktails and liquor punch you can hold in between giggles and moronic flirtiness, you will NOT find yourselves in an emergency room with your cop dad staring you in the eye. It is NOT the responsibility of the males in this world to keep you safe from every bad thing that can ever happen to you. You are not so irresistible in your dumb ass halter top and shorty shorts that you have no responsibility for your actions. Girls put themselves into really bad situations every day thinking that their little skinny bodies and their charms will protect them. It’s just not true. And, I have sons…my sons are not impressed by the “slutty” types at all. In today’s world young men need life partners, not baggage and high maintenance. All just food for thought.

Reno Sniper Murders Estranged Wife - Shoots Judge Chuck Weller Allegedly

Video Hosting - Upload Video - Video Sharing

Well, as I would like to think you are all waiting with baited breath for my “scoop” on the Reno sniper story, I know it’s not true. But tonight I will mount the soap box to tell my little story. I had a whole post almost written on the tragedy the night it happened, and quite frankly just got “too tired” to finish it the way I wanted it to be, complete with links and hot pictures.

I’m actually glad, as the story has changed every day since the incident. My oh my…it REALLY IS WEIRD to live in THE CITY where a story breaks that makes national news. Especially when you have actually seen the “guy in question” before, and so many people know him. We have 3 major TV stations in our city, and half a dozen or so radio stations. I swear, the day the story broke; all of them had a little different account of the news.

TRUTH: It was Reno’s tiny 9-11. Sirens go off all over town, phone calls and e-mails begin to fly…there has been a sniper shooting at the courthouse downtown and a judge has been shot! That’s a loud bullet in the ear… Nine city blocks in the heart of Reno were locked up tightly in a matter of minutes debilitating normal business in the heart of the Biggest Little City In The World. Judge Chuck Weller of family court was standing at his window that overlooks the Truckee River, and was gunned down. Early reports said he took 4 shots to the chest and was rushed to Washoe Medical Center. His assistant was with him, and she took glass shrapnel to her body, but was treated and released. Later reports said SWAT teams and Bomb Squad personnel found “suspicious findings” in a nearby parking garage at the judge’s car. Later, that report became not true. The judge also did not receive four shots, but now reports say “at least one bullet hit him”. When it actually hit FOX NEWS, I swear I was driving to work the next morning and the reporter said Judge Weller was shot DEAD.

Judge Chuck Weller has always been to my knowledge an upstanding judge and a pillar of the court. However, later reports say that many web sites report his behavior in court as abusive and raunchy. I take that with a grain of salt, as if you are the asshole in family court that doesn’t pay child support, or has a real need to have your children taken away…of course there will be a 50% rate of complaint with his findings…”DUH”.

THANK GOD!!! Judge Weller is going to be OK after some rehabilitation. He has been released from the hospital to a “secured location”. I think all of us locals probably know where that is, but for his sake and his family’s sake, all will leave that alone. NOW that we know more, not to take away from Judge Weller’s demise, but the tragedy is truly the BIG PICTURE HERE.

Within 24 hours of the event, a suspect was named. Darren Mack, one of the owners of the Palace Jewelry and Loan… (One of the biggest and most successful pawn shops in town), became the alleged shooter. This came about as he reportedly MURDERED his estranged wife IN THEIR OWN HOME WHILE THEIR 7 YR OLD DAUGHTER WAS IN THE HOME and then went to shoot the judge presiding over their very heated divorce case.

I HAVE SEEN THIS GUY BEFORE… He was present when I bought a nice gold ring from their store for my husband’s grandmother. This very exclusive pawn shop is directly across the street from the casino where I worked the last 7 years of my casino career. This guy is a rich dude prominent in the Reno community. His wife Charla, stabbed in cold blood by him was a drop dead gorgeous woman who was a stay at home Mom, and raised their daughter and helped to raise his early teenager children (one boy, one girl) from another marriage.

Alleged reports say that during their heated divorce, his income was reported to be $44,000 per month. “They” say that he warned Charla Mack that she should take minimal child support payments of just short of $900 per month and be happy. He told her that if she tried to get more, she would regret it. His net worth was supposedly reported to be 9.4 MILLION dollars, and Judge Weller ordered him to pay $839 per month in child support, but $10,000 per month in spousal support to Charla, as they lived in a $1,000,000 home in an exclusive gated community in the Reno area.

He asked a friend to meet him and take the daughter to her grandparent’s house. The friend showed up and was in the home when Darren Mack sped past him with a towel wrapped around his hand coming out of the bedroom. Shortly later, the family dog was barking frantically and came into the home covered in fresh blood. This friend sped from the home with the child and took her to safety and called the authorities to report that he was in fear that Charla Mack was in danger. Sure enough, the police came to the home and found her stabbed to death in the garage. Supposedly, Darren Mack then went and placed himself in a parking garage downtown with a high velocity rifle and shot Judge Weller through the window. Then, there are reports that he met a friend for coffee at a local coffee shop and acted totally normal.

Reports also say that Mack recently filed for bankruptcy and sold his shares in the long standing family business. I WANT TO KNOW WHO CAN FILE BANKRUPTCY IN THIS COUNTRY THAT HAS 9.4 MILLION DOLLARS. I can probably guarantee you that Judge Weller doesn’t have even 2 million dollars while he tries to satisfy countless losers in family court. Then, he takes a 25% side to one woman who deserves it married to a guy since 1995, and gets shot! That’s bullshit.

The weirdest part of my story…I was sitting at the local watering hole (regulars only usually), and some odd guy was sitting about two stools down from me and my husband, and he starts spouting off that he knows this Mack guy, and his father used to work for the late Mr. Mack before the business was turned over to the sons. He says the sons are all REALLY GOOD KIDS, but they happen to choose BAD WOMEN. He says that all sons of this family end up with “downtown type” girls and they stay with them for a while and then collect. I get that, I spent twenty years dealing with “downtown type” girls. But, usually a gal on the run for money doesn’t rack up the community points this woman did, and they usually don’t last 11 years.

Also, another acquaintance of mine stated that her girlfriend dated Darren Mack last year, and he appeared to be a really nice guy. However, she broke up with him abruptly, and she assumed that it was because of the heated divorce and too much aggravation over no gain. I trust this woman, and she’s not the only one that said he’s a nice guy. Other reports have him (while trying to convince Judge Weller of the poor mouth story) off to another country every other week…Costa Rica, or Mexico, or the like… engaging in alternative lifestyle parties and sexual deviance with multiple women on lavish vacations, but not paying his child support or making the mortgage payments on the lavish Mack home.

Big buzz in the Biggest Little City. The MAIN INTEREST NOW, is to find this guy before he hurts someone else. FBI profilers think he’s planned this for a while, and with access to any weapon of choice owning a major pawn shop, he’s armed and dangerous. FBI believes that he may have acquired another identity before the crimes, and may have stashed money out of state or country. He rented a silver Ford Explorer from the airport, and after shutting down several flights on the day of the deed, they have yet to find that vehicle. His burnt red Hummer 2 was found abandoned on a local street (not far from my neighborhood). He is very much still on the run, and I hope for the sake of many they find him soon. Following below, if anyone is interested, I will post the FIRST DAY news stories, and then post the links to today’s stories. Seriously, if anyone reading this has seen this guy, it’s a nationwide manhunt, please call your local authorities and report his whereabouts…

Defensive Driving - My Thoughts Might Save You

Video Hosting - Upload Video - Video Sharing

Lately, it seems that more and more often, I find myself in a close call on the highway or local city streets. I am compelled to just encourage all of you to drive more carefully. The nature of my business gives me a little "inside insight" to the actual dangers on the road many people probably do not think about. I don't have to be first, and neither do you.

On a daily basis, I actually see the driver quality and mechanical soundness of hundreds of people and vehicles on the roads. Truck drivers are a hard commodity to find these days. I cannot believe the condition of many people actually hired by companies to drive their vehicles each day. These big trucking companies fill spots with warm bodies, and send them out cross country, and may not see them again for some time. I see men and women daily with no teeth, obviously "on something". Many are tired, strung out, fed up, and quite simply not people of much character to begin with. It's really disheartening. I hear them on their cell phones in the driver's lounge (our little break room) having ridiculous conversations, lacking any positive attitude, and simply just along for the ride and the paycheck.

I also have conversations daily to truck owners about the safety and mechanical stability of their vehicles. I understand that commercial vehicle repair is expensive, but it is a necessity. So many companies either do not have the funds, or just choose to piece together equipment strictly on an as needed or only “if we must” basis. Trust me; there is a LOT of unsound equipment traveling our roads each minute, at every light, in every intersection. Simple things like brakes and suspension parts are often overlooked until it HAS to be done. I tell you, it makes me think and drive a lot differently.

Big trucks or passenger vehicles pulling trailers simply cannot stop on a dime. Their swerving abilities are limited, and often the vision of commercial drivers is blocked by the size of their machines. PEOPLE HAVE TO STOP PULLING OUT IN FRONT OF AND CUTTING IN TOO CLOSE IN FRONT OF THESE VEHICLES. It always seems to me too that young people, women otherwise preoccupied, and the elderly are the guiltiest parties here. My own husband is a more aggressive driver than I am. Many times we leave our shop close together. Occasionally, he will go around me on the highway, and soon is out of my sight. Invariably though, we will pull up in the driveway within seconds of each other. Being “first” doesn’t really get you there any faster in the long term.

Just take a few minutes to think about it. If you knew the guy coming down the road barely had any pad left on his brake shoes, or that his alignment was way out of whack, or that the guy behind the wheel has been awake for a couple of days, I know you would wait that extra few seconds and let him go by so that you don’t have to drive close to him. Remember that heavy vehicles cannot stop quickly, nor can they swerve effectively to miss you if anything goes wrong. Drive defensively; be “second”, and live to tell about it :)

Kooky Towel Animals - Too Much Fun

Video Hosting - Upload Video - Video Sharing
A couple of years ago, my husband and I took a wonderful cruise to Jamaica, Grand Cayman, and Cozumel. Twice daily the amazing cruise staff straightened the rooms, and we always found really cool little towel animals around our cabin whenever we returned. I remember that we got such a kick out of them.
I stumbled across this site today, and it brought back fun memories. Check out the animals, and study how to fold them. These are a great idea for guests that might visit your home.
