The news of the day..

Saturday begins.. noteworthy events continue.. a conglomeration of things that matter from the fruited plain and beyond..


Today is the 51st anniversary of the JFK assassination. I contemplated this all week, and listened to some amazing GROUND ZERO WITH CLYDE LEWIS shows as well. It angers me to think that we don't have truth, and that even after all these decades are done, the main theory of the assassination being perpetrated by one lone gunman still seems to rely on such shaky truth. And the girls seeing Lee Oswald drinking a Coke!? Ignored.. a man at the underpass being hit by a stray bullet? Forgotten.. A rush of a crowd running to the Grassy Knoll? We are told they were simply chasing echoes from the main shooter: Oswald on the 6th floor in his 'sniper's den.' And then, Jack Ruby kills the main that Hoover and company immediately blamed for the assassination and America, as a result, skyrocketed involvement in foreign entanglements.. The only thing that makes sens…

MAKING A MOEHILL OUT OF THE MUNDANE

The very normal and random act of a cup falling down off of the sink today caused me a little concern until I contemplated what had just occurred.

I was moving from one room to the next when I placed the cup on the edge of the bathroom sink. I left the room for a split second and thought to myself, “that coup is going to fall” ..

And that it did.

I went back into the room, wiped up the coffee which had fallen from the cup onto the floor, and checked the mug for any potential breaks. This was a very special mug after all, it was my Batman Father’s Day hero cup given to me the first year my son was alive..

After cleaning up and leaving the room, I stopped to think back as to what just happened.

Quite literally, I even retrace my steps. I went back into the room and realized where the cup markings had been, as we know coffee cups often leave a stain outline of where the its put down.

What I realized was astonishing. There should be no logical way the cup would’ve fallen off of the sink judging…

THE QUIET PEACE OF A SUNSET, WHILE THE NOISE OF THE DAY BLASTS YOUR TIRED FIVE SENSES

It was a normal late evening rush hour.
Cars attempting to burst out of the moving traffic jams caused by too many people leaving work at the same time..
Trucks pushing and shoving themselves into the front of the line, just to make traffic back up further..
And noise..

Voices raised on radio..So much noise.. So much clutter. The voices on the radio wildly claiming that President Obama should be impeached for amnesty.. And all the while, proponents of the President, like Nancy Pelosi, were making their own wild claims by saying the Obama plan to legalize millions of Mexicans was akin to Lincoln’s proclamation freeing the slaves..

But the sun was setting.. and those voices were being suddenly drown out by the reality in front of me.

The clutter of the day, along with the tension raising diatribes of talking heads in the air, didn’t matter.. Their sounds were gone. Instead a brilliant sunset was taking place in front of me..

The countless stresses were immediately alleviated. I was almost froz…

A PARANORMAL TALE OF TRUTH? A FAMILY MEMBER MOVED ME INTO WRITING.. SHE TELLS ME OF HER TALE OF A EURO FALLING FROM HEAVEN.. A SIGN FROM ABOVE OR A SIGNAL FROM BELOW? You be the judge..

A family member of mine, name and official title nameless at this point, told me a strange story of a bizarre nature. She swears by it, and I can relay it only with this caveat: She comes with a strong mind, a strong will, and an amazing ability to sense things that others may not. Along with that, she is not the person who ‘cries wolf’ or sees oddities where there are none. In essence, she’s the perfect witness to a crime: Someone who will restate the factual and not embellish on the unseen. In the case of the story she told me today, the unseen in the central focus of what has happened to her..

In short, her family dog has been acting strange as of late. Each time the family leaves the house, the pet makes a bowel movement on the same place of the upstairs hallway in her house–like clockwork and with pinpoint resolve, the dog is in the focused spot each time. The latest time she went out, just last night as a matter of fact, and came home, a dog mess was right back where he always le…

ALL THE COSBY NEWS YOU'RE GETTING GROSSED OUT BY HEARING

Janice Dickinson accuses Bill Cosby of drugging and sexually assaulting her »
In the wake of the latest allegations, Netflix has postponed its plan to release Cosby’s new comedy special.
“Stuffing feelings of rape and my unresolved issues from this incident has drove into a life of trying to hurt myself,” Dickinson said in an interview with co-host Kevin Frazier. Dickinson, a former judge on “America’s Next Top Model,” has publicly battled substance abuse for decades
This is getting really bad for Bill Cosby..
The man who wanted people to meme him..
And now this.

Meanwhile, the controversy over how journalists are covering the Cosby scandals from the 20th century is taking center stage—yet again thanks to CNN no less. A few days ago anchor Don Lemon made some news by saying ‘there are not ways to perform oral sex if you didn’t want to do it’ ..  Even more, Lemon thinks that the accusers, including Janice Dickinson, should have bitten off Bill Cosby’s genitals. 

That got me thinking about how…

A BAT WITH A HOBBIT?

Filming is just about over for BATMAN VS SUPERMAN.. and a trailer is on the way soon. That is pretty exciting news for me, how about you?

There is a high chance, according to these online trade rumors, that production of the film will soon be complete, and that Henry Cavill has concluded his scenes..

There are some major rumors brewing that the trailer for this movie will be attached to THE HOBBIT release on December 17th 2014.. If so, an early Christmas gift for people awaiting the BATMAN VS SUPERMAN movie will be the slickly produced advertisement to drum up even more excitement about the movie..

That is what also makes me worry about BATMAN VS SUPERMAN. They need to do this right.. The word is the trailer will be BATMAN HEAVY.. I think that is understandable. We have not had SUPERMAN invade our pop culture as much as BATMAN over the past 10 years..

But let’s just hope the trailer is great. And hope the movie is greater..

COMPOUNDING THE COMPOUNDS OF FEAR

Additive found soap, toothpaste and shampoo is linked to cancer »
Triclosan, an antimicrobial commonly found in the products, causes liver fibrosis and cancer in mice, say University of California, San Diego researchers.
Alright.. let me level with everyone. I am a germaphobe. But I am also a hypochondriac. So on any given day at any given  time I fear germs, but also think I will get some form of obscure cancer..I feel very bad for people who live with me.

That said, this story is detrimental to my mental security! The prospects of something that I worship, the antibacterial soaps of all kinds, giving me cancer of the liver!?

The fear I have of each has suddenly skyrocketed.. my mind is perplexed by which is the greater fear—the biggest of the two should be the guiding light for the rest of my life, right?

The other part that may be fascinating.. Antibacterial soap, for all the worship veneration occurred, may not work anyway!

The DAILY MAIL report says,
 One basic problem is that antibacte…

I KNEW THE SNOW IN NEW YORK WAS BAD..

….but I really did not realize just how bad it was until further research into news bits and the study of the photographs.. the snow is piled high—residents who have been witness to monster snowbursts before said they have never seen anything quite like what has occurred. Even more, four are dead due to lightning strikes and thunder snow.. An entire basketball team was rescued after becoming stranded.. 

At this point, the motorists who are stranded on I-90 have no idea when they will get off the highway.. And get this: NBC news reports,
Almost 76 inches of snow fell in the suburbs in southern Buffalo, according to The National Weather Service. This total was a record over a 24-hour period for anywhere in the U.S. on record. It prompted New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to declare a state of emergency in 10 counties. Among hundreds of trapped vehicles on the roads was the team bus of the Niagara University Purple Eagles women’s basketball team. It was stuck for more than 24 hours around 50 mile…

ROSIE TO GET THE BOOT?

There is trouble on the VIEW—the most annoying show on television I made add, one I only watch when I am sitting in a Jack Williams waiting room or doctor’s office.. Nonetheless, many people watch it. And the studio audience shrieks like wild hyenas daily.

The latest bit of gossip that, in the end I don’t care much about, is this: Whoopi and Rosie are involved in quite the back stage feud since O’Donnell returned to co-host the show.. Along with that feud: Bad ratings for the program.. Now the rumor  mill churns: Maybe a nationwide search for a new host once Rosie gets fired, something insiders claim is coming.. 

I have a major problem with the VIEW.. The few times I have watched it, the entertainment value was less than enjoyable—yes, I suppose I did not ‘enjoy the view’ as the hosts admonish us to do daily.. But even more, the dumbed-down type of information spewing is the worst. The women are opinionated.. but the news that is offered is a shell of reality. We are treated to talking …

Rainfall from the soul

Darkness pervades,
Unity evades,
Rainfall is strong,
Nature's not wrong

November is here,
And almost gone,
The cold will begin,
Nature's not wrong

A deep and dark fog
A drenching soak,
The cloak of cold is long,
But nature's not wrong
