*One of my former in-laws used to talk about needing to know someone who knew how “to get a prayer through” to God. ?After reading about the McCabe family of Chicago, you’ll agree that they’re on that list of folks!
Five-month old Daniel McCabe had been fighting a rare liver disorder since he was born. ?Just before Christmas, things got so dire that doctors placed him on a waiting list for a new liver, and prepared the family for a wait of several weeks, if not months. ?(The average wait for a liver is 86 days for kids and up to 149 days for adults.)
*Some serious marijuana activists are going all out to ensure the place of marijuana in Donald Trump’s administration. They will be handing out 4,200 joints to the people — for free — to be smoked at exactly 4-minutes and 20 seconds into Trump’s speech.
Hot dang! Even the non-smokers will leave with a contact high!
Let’s hope Trump himself takes a toke of something before he delves into his “Inauguration Speech.” From what he’s shown us of his public speaking prowess, would that really be so bad?
Oh hell, why not just have one in-hand DURING the speech!
Let’s face it: A Barack Obama he is NOT.
You might be wondering “what’s the message here?” Especially since the generous givers are not calling this an anti-Trump stance; but a “protest.” Continue reading →
*I knew it was only a matter of time for SOME ILLNESS to come about as a result of heavy pot smoking — exacerbated by the fact that its now legal in several states. Of course it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know that heavy pot users have been shown to have memory issues (and some have even become downright delusional, but that’s another story). Honestly, I don’t know if I stand 100 with the new ruling in California, whose pass came about last November. Blame it on the fact that I see way too much marijuana smoke being blown out of passing car windows; or even the fact that the guy who backed up off the freeway ramp, into my brand new car, reeked of it.
Medical marijuana is legitimate. It continues to be of great significance in alleviating debilitating pain; and even offers undeniable results where some children’s illnesses are concerned.
But just allowing any damn body to smoke weed. Out loud. Not so much.
Anyway, according to emergency room doctors, a lot of folks are flooding the ER rooms with illnesses related to severe pot smoking. Continue reading →
*I’m filing this one in?my new GMFB file: ?Give Me (a) Break. ?(I’ll let you fill in the “F” for yourself, just in case?there are?children in the room.)?
Five-year old Moriah Modisette was killed and her father was seriously injured when another driver, Garrett Willhelm slammed into their car at 65 mph on a Texas highway in 2014, according to her family. ?Willhelm was chatting away on a FaceTime video chat at the time of the crash. ?FaceTime was still running as rescue workers removed Moriah’s lifeless body and her dad from the demolished car.
Instead of holding Willhelm liable, the family has gone after Apple, according to Fortune.com, as it’s their FaceTime program that runs on their mobile platforms. ?The family claims the company has failed to install a “lock out” feature on FaceTime, thereby preventing drivers from using the app while on the road. ?The family’s lawsuit alleges that Apple was granted a patent to install the feature earlier in 2014, and the feature could have prevented the catastrophic crash.

*How dare she??That was my first thought after watching the video where this supposed Woman of God goes on a rant about who will get into Heaven and who won’t. That’s basically what her anti-gay ‘sermon’ was about.
I am not gay, and I’m not Christian — but let me tell you, I am still offended, and YOU, reader, should be too. It’s absolutely?disgusting?when people use what should be a platform of love and inclusion, to spout their own nasty views on how others choose to live their life.
How dare you! And shame on the ‘supporters’ of this idiocy; those who can be heard sitting in the audience heeing and hawing their support.
And Ms. Burrell, you didn’t even use good sense. You did this KNOWING you were going on the television show of one of the most beloved lesbian women of the 21st century, Ellen DeGeneres?
*Oh boy. ?And to think I was just apologizing to a visitor: “Too bad we can’t take you up to see the Hollywood sign,” as we traveled down the famed street in Los Angeles — with them looking at the handprints in cement in from of the old Mann’s Chinese Theater (now ‘TCL’ sumpthin’); as the children took pictures with the likes of Batman, Mickey & Minnie, Edward Scissorhands, The Joker and the man with the huge yellow snake.
I am so glad I didn’t point for them to actually look?up.?
I can just hear the children now. “Mommy, THAT doesn’t spell Hollywood.”Continue reading →
