Here’s more from The Huffington Post:

“Michelle Obama is making her debut appearance on Fox News this coming Saturday, on Mike Huckabee’s show ‘Huckabee.’ The former Republican presidential candidate wooed the first lady onto Fox to talk about her childhood obesity campaign, “let’s move.”

Did Billy Joel’s Daughter Really Try To End Her Life?

Apparently,being Alexa Ray Joel is too hard for the woman that bears that name.It must be excruciatingly terrible to be the daughter of Christie Brinkley when you didn’t inherit any of her blond statuesque beauty.Unfortunately for Alexa,she takes after Billy Joel in looks.That would make anyone depressed.

Not only does she have to deal with people constantly assessing her looks,as I just did,but she is trying to carve her own path to success.To her great dismay,Alexa Ray Joel is mostly known for being Billy Joel’s daughter.

So,it didn’t come as much of a surprise when I learned that she tried to commit suicide.The poor thing overdosed on homeopathic pills after an argument with her boyfriend.Thankfully,she was unsuccessful in her attempt to end her life.Hopefully,Alexa Ray Joel will find the happiness that seems to elude her.

Get well,Alexa!

I’m Glad That This Supernatural Cloud Was In Moscow & Not America!

Luminous: The pale halo-shaped cloud was hovering over Moscow on Wednesday

Have you seen the spooky halo-shaped cloud that was spotted in the Moscow sky?I would be freaked out if I saw something like that here in America! I mean,it does look like an alien mothership or some otherworldly object.

But,along with the scary house decor,devilish sound effects & costumes,I might like seeing a supernatural looking cloud hovering in the sky this Halloween.That would really make trick or treating even more scary & fun.

Here’s more on the cloud in Moscow from The Daily Mail:

“In what could have been a scene from the film Independence Day, a luminous ring-shaped cloud could be seen hovering over the city of Moscow last week.

The pale gold ‘halo’ could be seen above the Russian capital city’s Western District on Wednesday, and was captured on film by stunned Muscovites.Meteorologists rejected any theories of the supernatural however, calling it an optical effect.

A spokesman from the city’s weather forecast said: ‘Several fronts have been passing through Moscow recently, there was an intrusion of the Arctic air too, the sun was shining from the west – this is how the effect was produced.’

He added: ‘This is purely an optical effect, although it does look impressive.” (End of Excerpt)

An Ohio Grandmother Gets Arrested For Spanking A Stranger’s Child!!

gloria ballard spanks strangers 2 year old

I’ve heard of the expression “it takes a village to raise a child“. But in a village,the villagers usually know each other.At least in passing,they do.When Gloria Ballard spanked a stranger’s child in a store,she wasn’t adhering to that expression.

Ms. Ballard did not know Dannay Jones or her 2-yr. old son.But,she decided to intervene when she saw the child behaving unruly.The grandmother gave the mother some unwanted parenting advice.Then,she spanked the child.WTF?!!

If I were Dannay Jones,I would have had to whup grandma’s ass.That would let her know not to meddle in other people’s affairs.

The “Parking Rage Dentist” Gets Three Years Probation!

William Moody

Dr. William Moody sure showed that he was in a horrific mood when the “parking rage” dentist shoved a woman to the ground over a parking space. Gee whiz! Get a grip,dude! If I were a White Plains,NY resident,that would be one dentist that I would steer clear of.

Because Dr. Moody really takes his last name seriously.Instead of living up to the family name,this guy is the walking definition of his surname.Here’s more on this story from

“The “parking rage” dentist who pushed a Buchanan woman to the ground and shoved her brother will serve three years’ probation and can have no contact whatsoever with the siblings, a city judge ruled yesterday.The sentence for Dr. William Moody of Elmsford came after his June conviction of all the charges against him, including misdemeanor assault and contempt, as well as harassment and disorderly conduct violations.

City Judge JoAnn Fria could have sentenced him to a year in jail on each of the two top counts. Prosecutors sought jail time and $3,400 to cover the woman’s medical bills.Moody, 61, was arrested immediately after the Nov. 9, 2007, confrontation, when he became enraged that Luis Infante’s Chevrolet was blocking a parking-lot entrance on Court Street.

Moody honked the horn of his Mercedes-Benz and shouted at Infante before getting out of his car and approaching Infante’s Chevy.Infante testified at the trial that he was waiting for his sister, Yolanda Infante, to drive her to make funeral arrangements for their father, who had died the night before.”(End of Excerpt) Read the rest here.

President Bill Clinton:I Know Euna Lee & Laura Ling Are So Happy That He Negotiated Their Freedom!

President Bill Clinton’s reputation has been on the rocks since last year’s intense campaign.But,it looks like he took the quick road to redemption by negotiating the release of two journalists that were imprisoned in North Korea.

I know that both Euna Lee & Laura Ling feel eternally grateful to Bill Clinton for talking the wicked leader of North Korea into giving them amnesty.And I am so happy for their families that Clinton was able to make their safe return a reality.

I just think that it’s really too bad that some folks are more worried about “negotiating with terrorists” than they are about the freedom of all Americans.Here’s more from The Huffington Post:

“Euna Lee and Laura Ling are safe at home and in the warm embrace of loved ones and it’s hard to feel bad about this. But, since Bill Clinton has a hand in their release, someone’s got to step up and naysay the effort, and predictably, that task has fallen to former UN ambassador and noted rage-walrus John Bolton, who says the “Clinton trip is a significant propaganda victory for North Korea, whether or not he carried an official message from President Obama.”

Of course, holding Lee and Ling as prisoners was also a significant propaganda victory for North Korea, insofar as the ravings of a crackpot rogue nations can be held to be significant. If Kim Jong Il bakes a mediocre angel food cake today, North Korea will claim they’ve achieved a significant propaganda victory.

Bolton, nevertheless, doesn’t see it this way:

While the United States is properly concerned whenever its citizens are abused or held hostage, efforts to protect them should not create potentially greater risks for other Americans in the future. Yet that is exactly the consequence of visits by former presidents or other dignitaries as a form of political ransom to obtain their release.

Iran and other autocracies are presumably closely watching the scenario in North Korea. With three American hikers freshly in Tehran’s captivity, will Clinton be packing his bags again for another act of obeisance? And, looking ahead, what American hostages will not be sufficiently important to merit the presidential treatment? What about Roxana Saberi and other Americans previously held in Tehran? What was it about them that made them unworthy of a presidential visit?

These are the consequences of poorly thought-out gesture politics, however well-intentioned or compassionately motivated. Indeed, the release of the two reporters — welcome news — doesn’t mitigate the future risks entailed.”(End of Excerpt) Read the rest here.

Ladybugs Invade Colorado!

I sure do love ladybugs.But,I’m not sure how I would react to swarms of them.What makes them so delightful to me is that they are supposed to signify good luck.

Every now & then,a ladybug will get in my house or land on my hand.That’s exciting! When I see green ladybugs instead of red ones,it makes me feel special somehow.But if I was living in Colorado,I would find the invasion of ladybugs to be quite creepy.

The Air France Mystery Is Truly Baffling!!

An Air France jet that was carrying 228 passengers has simply vanished.It disappeared while flying from Brazil to France & it may be somewhere in the Atlantic Ocean.This is a baffling mystery that may remain unresolved. My condolences & prayers go out to all of those affected by this tragedy.

Here’s more from MSNBC:

“A missing Air France jet carrying 228 people from Rio de Janeiro to Paris ran into a tower of thunderstorms over the Atlantic Ocean, officials said Monday, fearing that all aboard were lost.

The area where the plane could have gone down was vast. Brazil’s military searched for it off its northeast coast, while the French military scoured the ocean near the Cape Verde Islands off the West African coast.

French President Nicolas Sarkozy told families of those aboard that “prospects of finding survivors were very small.” If all 228 were killed, it would be the deadliest commercial airline disaster since 2001.

Sarkozy, speaking at Paris’ Charles de Gaulle airport, said the reason for the disappearance remained unclear and that “no hypothesis” was excluded.”(End of Excerpt) Read the rest here.

The Battle Of The First Ladies!

The media has entered Carla Bruni & Michelle Obama into a contest that they had no intention of being in.In this imagined battle of the First Ladies,one of them must prove superior in both style & substance.Now,it’s hard to beat a former supermodel on style.But,Michelle Obama is winning points on both her fashion choices & her wit! Here’s more on that from the Times Online UK:

“A year ago, there was no doubt who wore the crown. The French President’s newly wedded wife, Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, was the pin-up of the diplomatic circuit. Model, singer, former lover of Eric Clapton and Mick Jagger … she was a woman with whom every leader’s wife positively dreaded having their photo taken. Yet today in Strasbourg, the other half who put glamour back into politics met a First Lady who might just prove a match for her.

Michelle Obama has won both hearts and minds since her husband became the 44th President of the United States in January. Cool, intelligent and beautiful, she has plenty of glamour in her own right as well as being Mr Obama’s rock and equal, a feisty mother-of-two and an American Vogue cover star.”(End of Excerpt) Read the rest here.
