Update: It could have been worse

Information on how to help upcoming.

But last night I was thinking about what happened a fews house ago, having my life taken away from me and essentially starting over again.

There are people who are amazed that I am in such good spirits.

Make no mistake, I am still highly pissed that this has happened to me again and that I have to go to the well one more time. Let's face it, it does not make me look good.

But it could have been worse. I could have been Leiby Kletzky.

Leiby WAS a cute 8-year old boy who had the misfortune of being killed and dismembered a few days ago. The man who is suspected in this murder is being examined for mental capacity.

Imagine, not knowing what it will ever be to be 9 is bad enough...but dismembered?

Or I could be Raha Abdi Nor. This young mother lives in Mogadishu, in the middle of a Somali war, the result of which is a crippling famine. This woman has to watch her 4 young children waste away to literally skin and bones because of lack of food.

And there are many people I could have been yesterday. All truly suffering, all truly desparate. Many of them dead or close to dying. Crap happens every day. My crap was losing the stuff that symbolized my life.

The fact that I am typing this proves I got off easy.


Now then, here is where I stand. I washed pretty much everything, which means I only have the clothes on my back and that's. It gets cold at the casa, so I also will need a blanket or two.

I did borrow a charger so I do have LIMITED phone access. I also will be getting my unemployment check next week. So I have lowered the target to about $200. That should take care of things.

There are two ways you can help. The Chip in at the right. you don't have to send much, but $20 or $30 will do. OR you can click the Amazon Wish list button to the has pretty much all the things that were taken and you can choose one or two to help out.

If you can't do either, a few good prayers would be welcome.

Again, thanks.

I will make this brief. This afternoon at about 2pm, I was robbed.

This happened at a shoping mall in Encino. I had just done laundry and I walked over to the store to grapb an energy shot. A cautionary to all...all it takes is a minute.

All my clothes were taken, as well as my charger for my phone (which thankfully I still have, along with my ID). Bottom line is what I have on now is all that I have.

I need help. Since I am not working, I am trying to raise emergency funds to get changes of clothing and a new charger.

I am asking those who read my blogs and those who follow me on various networks for you help. Whatever you can do I would appreciate.

You can you use the Chipin to the right of this, or simply PayPal what you can to

I also do personal and small business websites at a very low cost. You can write to my e-mail and we can talk rates. that can help out too.

I'll give you and update tomorrow.

Thank you for your generosity and patience in advance.

Rockin' the 419

O h looky what I got in the mail today....

Dear Beloved,

Beloved? The last person who used that line was Oprah for a movie..which bombed...

I am Cynthia **** from Ghana. I am the only surviving Daughter of Late Dr and Mrs Clement **** ,my late father was the General Inspector of Finances for over Six years before his death. My Father was assassinated by his brothers just because of his properties

They have teabaggers in Ghana?

My late Father deposited the sum of $7.5 Million (seven Million Five Hundred Thousand Dollars) [HOLY SH!T] with a bank here in Ghana.

A bank in Ghana. Let's see, what bank was it? Bank of Ghana? First National Bank? The Bank Formerly Known As GMAC? Or are you talking about that piggy bank on your kitchen table?

Recently,my Doctor told me that I have limited days to live due to the stroke and cancerous problems I am suffering from. are you able to type this message. If you ARE at death's door, ma'am, you are probably having troubles with even using the keyboard, let alone teh energy to write a coherent message. Still, I can help: Forest Lawn is having a special if you die by Saturday; free Dish Network for the crypt.

I have decided to donate this fund to you and want you to use this gift which comes from my late fathers effort to fund the upkeep of widows and charities worldwide....

The widows are going to feel jacked. And are those the same charities that Frankenjamie McCourt keep their money in (to keep it from being taken by that mean old Mr. Selig?)

...i have suffered a lot and no one from my fathers family care for me there all want me to die because of my late Fathers properties,

Maybe it's because your giving $7.5 million dollars to a borderline homeless person who really needs the money to eat.

I took this decision because I don't have any direct brother or sister that will inherit this money and my fathers relations are bourgeois and very wealthy persons and I do not want my late fathers hard earned money to be misused.

Maybe this is why Casey did it...she sees this coming....

Please, consider this and get back to me as soon as possible.

Your Faithfully
Cynthia ****

Dear Cynthia,

I have considered it and I have decided that, since your dying and all, it would not be right for me to take your money. Besides, since I do believe in miracles, you may very well recover, then there are all those medical bills.

However, I would refer any further coomunications or money to my council...Nancy Grace, HLM, Atlanta.

Before we start with all this 4th of July stuff...

I know, this is the weekend when we pay lip service to our love for our country, while downing as many hotdogs as we can muster.

But before you start waving the flag around, answer these questions?

When was the last time you voted?

When was the last time you wrote to/called your Congressman. Or Mayor. Or President?

When was the last time you actually researched a political position...instead of reying on talk hosts, commentators, or even passed-on e-mails?

When was the last time you said something positive about public figure you disagreeed with poltically?

When was the last time you said something negative about public figure you agreeed with poltically?

When was the last time you bought a gift card from a restaurant to a homeless person?

When was the last time you did a kindness for an undocumented visitor?

When was the last time you actually sought to understand another fait other than yours?

When was the last time you enjoyed a movie/song/tv show featuring an person whose politics were different than yours?

When was the last time you actually saluted the flag as you passed it by.

There are a lot more, but you get the picture.

It seems there's a lot of people who pledge patriotism....but many are just Americans in Name Only. Are you one?

Happy 4th, buddy.
