Car Keys

Good information.

Put your car keys beside your bed at night. If you hear a noise outside your home or someone trying to get in your house, just press the panic button for your car. The alarm will be set off, and the horn will continue to sound until either you turn it off or the car battery dies. This tip came from a neighborhood watch coordinator.

Next time you come home for the night and you start to put your keys away, think of this: It's a security alarm system that you probably already have and requires no installation. Test it. It will go off from most everywhere inside your house and will keep honking until your battery runs down or until you reset it with the button on the key fob chain. It works if you park in your driveway or garage.

If your car alarm goes off when someone is trying to break in your house, odds are the burglar or rapist won't stick around... after a few seconds all the neighbors will be looking out their windows to see who is out there and sure enough the criminal won't want that.

And remember to carry your keys while walking to your car in a parking lot. The alarm can work the same way there..... This is something that should really be shared with everyone. Maybe it could save a life or a sexual abuse crime. Would also be useful for any emergency, such as a heart attack, where you can't reach a phone.

If you are older, is also suggested that you carry your car keys with you in case you fall outside and no one can hear you. You can activate the car alarm and then someone may know there's a problem.

Heath Ledger Found Dead

Heath Ledger was found dead Tuesday at a downtown Manhattan residence, and police said drugs may have been a factor. He was 28.
NYPD spokesman Paul Browne said Ledger had an appointment for a massage at the Manhattan apartment believed to be his home. The housekeeper who went to let him know the masseuse had arrived found him dead at 3:26 p.m.
The Australian-born actor was nominated for an Oscar for “Brokeback Mountain,” where he met his wife, actress Michelle Williams, in 2005. Ledger and Williams had lived in Brooklyn and had a daughter, Matilda, until they split up last year.
Ledger was to appear as the Joker this year in “The Dark Night,” a sequel to 2005’s “Batman Begins.” He’s had starring roles in “A Knight’s Tale” and “The Patriot,” and played the suicidal son of Billy Bob Thornton in “Monster’s Ball.”
Ledger grew up in Perth, and began doing amateur theater at age 10. At 16, he moved to Sydney to pursue an acting career, quickly landing TV movie roles and guest spots on Australian television. After several independent films and a starring role in the short-lived Fox TV series “Roar,” Ledger moved to Los Angeles and costarred in “10 Things I Hate About You,” a teen comedy reworking of “The Taming of the Shrew.” Offers for other teen flicks came his way, but Ledger turned them down, preferring to remain idle than sign on for projects he didn’t like.
“It wasn’t a hard decision for me,” Ledger told the Associated Press in 2001. “It was hard for everyone else around me to understand. Agents were like, `You’re crazy,’ my parents were like, `Come on, you have to eat.’” His latest role was in “I’m Not There,” in which he played one of the many incarnations of Bob Dylan — as did Cate Blanchett, whose performance in that film earned an Oscar nomination Tuesday for best supporting actress.


MSNBC says he was surrounded by pills
The New York Times “At 3:31 p.m., a masseuse arrived at Apartment 5A in the building for an appointment with Mr. Ledger, the police said. The masseuse was let in to the home by a housekeeper, who then knocked on the door of Mr. Ledger’s bedroom. When no one answered, the housekeeper and the masseuse opened the bedroom and found Mr. Ledger unconscious. They shook him, but he did not respond. They immediately called the authorities. The police said they did not suspect foul play. Officials said pills fear found near the body.”
FOX News is talking to the guy from TMZ, harvey, right now 5:05 pm
TMZ: We’re told when paramedics responded, the actor was in full cardiac arrest. They attempted to perform CPR on him, but were unsuccessful. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Fox News: Police say death believed to be “drug related”

Wow this one really shocked me!

Suzanna Pleshette dies

Suzanne Pleshette, the husky-voiced star best known for her role as Bob Newhart's sardonic wife on television's long-running "The Bob Newhart Show," has died at age 70.

Pleshette, whose career included roles in such films as Hitchcock's "The Birds" and in Broadway plays including "The Miracle Worker," died of respiratory failure Saturday evening at her Los Angeles home, said her attorney Robert Finkelstein, also a family friend.

Pleshette underwent chemotherapy for lung cancer in 2006.

"The Bob Newhart Show, a hit throughout its six-year run, starred comedian Newhart as a Chicago psychiatrist surrounded by eccentric patients. Pleshette provided the voice of reason.

Four years after the show ended in 1978, Newhart went on to the equally successful "Newhart" series in which he was the proprietor of a New England inn populated by more eccentrics. When that show ended in 1990, Pleshette reprised her role — from the first show — in one of the most clever final episodes in TV history.

It had Newhart waking up in the bedroom of his "The Bob Newhart Show" home with Pleshette at his side. He went on to tell her of the crazy dream he'd just had of running an inn filled with eccentrics.

"If I'm in Timbuktu, I'll fly home to do that," Pleshette said of her reaction when Newhart told her how he was thinking of ending the show.

Born Jan. 31, 1937, in New York City, Pleshette began her career as a stage actress after attending the city's High School of the Performing Arts and studying at its Neighborhood Playhouse. She was often picked for roles because of her beauty and her throaty voice.

"When I was 4," she told an interviewer in 1994, "I was answering the phone, and (the callers) thought I was my father. So I often got quirky roles because I was never the conventional ingenue."

She met her future husband, Tom Poston, when they appeared together in the 1959 Broadway comedy "The Golden Fleecing," but didn't marry him until more than 40 years later.

Although the two had a brief fling, they went on to marry others. By 2000 both were widowed and they got back together, marrying the following year.

"He was such a wonderful man. He had fun every day of his life," Pleshette said after Poston died in April 2007.

Among her other Broadway roles was replacing Anne Bancroft in "The Miracle Worker," the 1959 drama about Helen Keller, in New York and on the road.

Meanwhile, she had launched her film career with Jerry Lewis in 1958 in "The Geisha Boy." She went on to appear in numerous television shows, including "Have Gun, Will Travel," "Alfred Hitchcock Presents," "Playhouse 90" and "Naked City."

By the early 1960s, Pleshette attracted a teenage following with her youthful roles in such films as "Rome Adventure," "Fate Is the Hunter," "Youngblood Hawke" and "A Distant Trumpet."

She married fellow teen favorite Troy Donahue, her co-star in "Rome Adventure," in 1964 but the union lasted less than a year. She was married to Texas oilman Tim Gallagher from 1968 until his death in 2000.

Pleshette matured in such films as Hitchcock's "The Birds" and the Disney comedies "The Ugly Dachshund," "Blackbeard's Ghost" and "The Adventures of Bullwhip Griffin." Over the years, she also had a busy career in TV movies, including playing the title role in 1990's "Leona Helmsley, the Queen of Mean."

More recently, she appeared in several episodes of the TV sitcoms "Will & Grace" and "8 Simple Rules ... For Dating My Teenage Daughter."

In a 1999 interview, Pleshette observed that being an actress was more important than being a star.

"I'm an actress, and that's why I'm still here," she said. "Anybody who has the illusion that you can have a career as long as I have and be a star is kidding themselves."

This is very sad to me. I grew up with this lady from all the Disney movies she did to Bob NewHart show. RIP Suzanne

Sam the butcher dies

Allan Melvin, a character actor best known for playing Sam the Butcher on "The Brady Bunch," has died. He was 84.

Melvin died of cancer Thursday at his home in the Brentwood section of Los Angeles, said Amalia Melvin, his wife of 64 years.

The jowly, jovial Melvin spent decades playing a series of sidekicks, second bananas and lovable lugs, including Archie Bunker's friend Barney Hefner on "All in the Family," and Sgt. Bilko's right-hand man Cpl. Henshaw on the "Phil Silvers Show."

But his place in pop culture will be fixed as butcher and bowler Sam Franklin, the love interest of Brady family maid Alice Nelson, who was played by Ann B. Davis. Melvin played the role from 1970 to 1973.

Born in Kansas City, Mo., in 1923, Melvin grew up in New York and attended Columbia University.

He was appearing on Broadway in "Stalag 17" when he began his decades-long television career with "The Phil Silvers Show," playing a role his wife said was always his favorite.

"He was proudest of that show," Amalia Melvin said. "I think the camaraderie of all those guys made it such a pleasant way to work. They were so relaxed."

He saw steady employment as a voice actor from the early 1960s to the early 1990s, most famously providing the voice of "Magilla Gorilla" for the Hanna Barbera cartoon of the same name.

His other credits include several guest appearances on "The Andy Griffith Show," "Gomer Pyle: USMC," and "The Dick Van Dyke Show."

In addition to Amalia, Melvin is survived by daughter Jennifer Hanson and grandson Jon Hanson Jr. A daughter, Mya, died in 1970.

RIP Sam we will miss you

David Spade To Be A Daddy?

A 22-year-old Playboy Playmate is claiming that David Spade is the father of her unborn child. Jillian Grace, Miss March 2005, is alleging that she had a relationship with the comedian, resulting in her becoming pregnant. Grace was discovered by Playboy after posing for test shots on the Howard Stern show.
Spade tells TMZ, “I had a brief relationship with Jillian Grace. If it is true that I am the father of her child, then I will accept responsibility.” Grace could not be reached for comment.

Ewww!!! That's all I have to say about that.

Matthew McConaughey: I'm Going To Be a Dad

Matthew McConaughey and girlfriend Camila Alves are expecting a child, the actor announced Tuesday on his Web site."My girlfriend Camila and I made a baby together," McConaughey writes. "It's 3 months growin in her womb and all looks healthy and lively so far. We are stoked and wowed by this miracle of creation and this gift from God, and so excited for the adventure that will come in raising this child, being mother and a father, and shepherding him or her through this life."McConaughey adds: "Wish us the best, keep us in your prayers, and God bless evolution. Thanks for being fans of me and my work and now this new and miraculous chapter in my life, as me and Camila and our child do our best to just keep living." PEOPLE's "Sexiest Man Alive" from 2005 signs his message, "Wow, McConaughey." McConaughey, 38, met Alves, 24, a Brazilian model whose family moved to L.A. when she was young, more than a year ago. Since then, they have been together constantly – and often in the Ocean – riding the waves last year from Australia, where he filmed Fool's Gold, to the Bahamas, where he shot the comedy Surfer Dude."He is euphoric. He couldn't be happier," says his rep Alan Nierob. Longtime McConaughey pal Mark Gustawes, who is producing Surfer Dude, says the couple are "incredibly happy."

That's like trippy man!!! It will be a gorgeous baby though!

Brad Renfro Dies at 25

Actor Brad Renfro has died at age 25, PEOPLE has confirmed. Renfro died Tuesday at a Los Angeles apartment where he spent the night with friends, Craig Harvey, chief investigator for the Los Angeles county coroner, tells PEOPLE. Renfro was heard snoring overnight, but found not breathing later Tuesday morning, and the friends called 911. Paramedics declared him dead at the scene at about 9 a.m., Harvey says. A cause of death was not immediately determined, but Renfro had a history of drug problems. Drug overdose is a "possibility considering his history, but right now all we have is the history of his drinking the previous night," Harvey says. "All that we have is that he was last known to be alive during the morning hours and he was snoring."The actor, who starred in The Client and Apt Pupil, had recently completed a movie with Winona Ryder and Billy Bob Thornton.

I've never heard of this guy, just another loser druggie, no big loss IMO.

OMG could it really be true???

The prayers of students across north Georgia hoping for a snow day may be answered this week.The National Weather Service updated their forecast Monday afternoon and said rain or snow is likely for Cherokee, Clayton, Cobb, DeKalb, Forsyth, Gwinnett, Henry, Rockdale, and Fulton Counties late Wednesday and early Thursday morning.The same forecast called for heavy accumulation of snow in Rabun County.The first part of the formula, cold temperatures, will settle over the area Wednesday afternoon.That will be followed by precipitation moving into Georgia from the Gulf. If temperatures are cold enough the mix could be just right for snow or ice."It could be kind of interesting, especially for the mountains. We'll be watching this closely," said Karen Minton WSB-TV Channel 2 meteorologist.If snow or ice does fall Wednesday night, it's expected to turn to rain on Thursday.

Trust me I am not holding my breath on this LOL. But hey it is nice to see that they are calling for it... Hey Jo... I think the farmers might have actually gotten it right on this one LOL. I can't remember what week they had off hand but it was around this time.

Pondering question of the week

I love LifeTimes new show called "How To Feel Good Naked". I think what Carson is doing to help boost some of these girls is a GREAT thing. He is really awesome! But now the question comes LOL.. on one show the girl was standing with her arms up and to the side and was saying how she hated the flab the hung.. okay yes I have that and HATE it. I do that ALL the time in the mirror. So the question is... do you do that also?? His answer to her was.. "who really stands like that?" my answer was I DO!!! Okay I don't actually stand like that but I do look at it all the time and go GROSS!!!! So do you do it???

My love affair with Jeff Dunham

I just love this man. His puppets are just way to funny. he has a new DVD out and if you have never seen him you have got to rent one of his DVD's. he is not for kids but he is one funny man. Walter is my most favorite puppet, but this last movie he did have some new ones and they where hilarious. He is another I just sit and wait for new things to come out.

Trader Joes

I am ever so happy that I FINALLY found where one is here is ATL. I love this store so much. They had this most awesome white pomogranate tea bags. All I can say is YUMMY. I am so not into paying more money for organic crap (and frankly I don't much care for the taste of it) but the other stuff they have is great. So much you can't find other places. It is a trek to get out there but once a month these people will see me.

‘Meanest mom’ sells car after finding liquor

DES MOINES, Iowa - Jane Hambleton has dubbed herself the "meanest mom on the planet."
After finding alcohol in her son's car, she decided to sell the car and share her 19-year-old's misdeed with everyone — by placing an ad in the local newspaper.
The ad reads: "OLDS 1999 Intrigue. Totally uncool parents who obviously don't love teenage son, selling his car. Only driven for three weeks before snoopy mom who needs to get a life found booze under front seat. $3,700/offer. Call meanest mom on the planet."
Hambleton has heard from people besides interested buyers since recently placing the ad in The Des Moines Register.
The 48-year-old from Fort Dodge says she has fielded more than 70 telephone calls from emergency room technicians, nurses, school counselors and even a Georgia man who wanted to congratulate her.
"The ad cost a fortune, but you know what? I'm telling people what happened here," Hambleton says. "I'm not just gonna put the car for resale when there's nothing wrong with it, except the driver made a dumb decision.
"It's overwhelming the number of calls I've gotten from people saying 'Thank you, it's nice to see a responsible parent.' So far there are no calls from anyone saying, 'You're really strict. You're real overboard, lady.'"
The only critic is her son, who Hambleton says is "very, very unhappy" with the ad and claims the alcohol was left by a passenger.
Hambleton said she believes her son but has decided mercy isn't the best policy in this case. She says she set two rules when she bought the car at Thanksgiving: No booze, and always keep it locked.
The car has been sold, but Hambleton says she will continue the ad for another week — just for the feedback.

Elevator Etiquette

I apparently work in a building full of dumbasses. Today is dumbass Wednesday! I can't tell you how many times I will be in the elevator and when the door opens someone is standing right smack in front of it, and they look at you totally surprised that someone could actually be inside wanting to get off, then won't move aside so that you can get off! Then there is the other side of the coin, you're waiting for the elevator and it fnally comes, the door opens and the person inside stares blankly straight ahead and in shock that the door opened and don't know what the hell they are supposed to do now. I know, get the hell off! Oh and lets not forget the people who are in such a rush to jump on when the door opens that they bump into you while you're attempting to exit. Let people off BEFORE you jump on idiot, it's common courtesy!


Hillary Clinton winning anything. Seriously people Hillary Clinton? Is NH for real??? I was just sick to my stomach yesterday when I saw those results coming in. Do not get me wrong.. i would LOVE to be alive to see the first women president. But please GOD not Hillary. That women plain scares the hell out of me.

Polar Bear Plunge

If you don't know what this is, it's a group of people who go for an ice cold dip in a body of water, ours is done in the Chesapeake Bay and it's usually done for charity, about 8,000 people participated last year. I know various cities around the country do this during the winter months for all different charities, our area does is to benefit the Special Olympics. My 14 year old wants to do it this year, he wanted to do it last year but the registration period had already ended when he told me he wanted to do it. I'm really proud that he wants to do this, I can't imagine going swimming in January brrrrr!!!! Now we'll see if he actually gets the pledges, he needs a minimum of $50 to participate. This is all him, I'm not doing any networking for him for pledges, if he wants to do this he has to make the phone calls etc. But I'm very proud he wants to do something to beneft someone else, maybe just maybe some of what I am trying to teach him actualy got through! :)


Well Lop got a call from Tyler Perry and they want him to be recurring on his show House Of Payne!!! I have never seen the show but hey if it pays the bills LOL I might have to start watching it ;O).

Some Girls Fainting After Receiving HPV Vaccine

ATLANTA - The groundbreaking vaccine that prevents cervical cancer in girls is gaining a reputation as the most painful of childhood shots, health experts say.
Health officials have touted the Gardasil vaccine as an important new protection against a cancer-causing sexually transmitted virus. In recent months, they’ve also noted reports of pain and fainting from the shot.

During its first year of use, reports of girls fainting from vaccinations climbed, but it’s not clear whether the pain of the cervical cancer vaccine was the reason for the reaction.
“This vaccine stings a lot,” said Patsy Stinchfield, an infectious disease expert at Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota, speaking at a recent meeting of vaccination experts in Atlanta.

It sure does, said 18-year-old Lauren Fant. She said other shots tend to hurt only at the moment of the needle stick, and not after the vaccine plunges in. “It burns,” said the college freshman from Marrietta, Ga. Pain usually briefThe pain is short-lived, girls say; many react with little more than a grimace. But some teens say it’s uncomfortable driving with or sleeping on the injected arm for up to a day after getting the shot. Officials at Merck & Co., which makes the vaccine, acknowledge the sting. They attribute it partly to the virus-like particles in the shot. Pre-marketing studies showed more reports of pain from Gardasil than from dummy shots, and patients reported more pain when given shots with more of the particles.
Meanwhile, U.S. health officials have noticed a rise in reports of vaccine-associated fainting in girls. From 2002-2004 there were about 50 reports of fainting; from 2005 until last July, there were about 230. About 180 of those cases followed a shot of Gardasil, which came on the market in 2006.

But it’s not clear that Gardasil’s sting is related to the fainting increase, said Dr. Barbara Slade, an immunization safety specialist at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Teens tend to faint from needles, so a three-dose vaccine for adolescents would be expected to prompt some added fainting, she said. Researchers aren’t sure why teens faint more than other age groups, but nervousness may be a factor.

Gardasil is the first vaccine approved specifically to target the human papilloma virus, or HPV, which causes cervical and vaginal cancer. The Food and Drug Administration approved it for girls ages 9 to 26.

Preliminary studies indicate only 10 to 20 percent of them have gotten at least one dose.
But researchers said those rates are due to reasons other than worries about pain, including Gardasil’s $120-a-shot price, limited supplies initially and mixed feelings by some parents and doctors about a vaccination that assumes girls have sex.

Does anyone know why they will not give this vaccine to women over the age 26? If you test negative for the virus couldn't you still get the vaccine to be protected from getting the virus no matter what your age? I'd really like to know whythere is an age limit on this vaccine....

OK Seriously now

I am really beginning to get mad now. I am so OVER all these STUPID Viagra ads and all the other friggin spam that comes into my email box. They have now completely stepped over the line when I open them to see some guys dick staring me in the face. Why in the hell has NO ONE sued these people. There has got to be a way to do it. Just not sure how!!! It is sad when you have to ask your kids to leave the room while you check your email. I DO NOT have that part people. STOP sending the crap!!!

Britney Spears Hospitalized for 'An Evaluation'

Britney Spears has been taken to a Los Angeles hospital for "an evaluation" after police were called to her Studio City home for a "custodial dispute" Thursday. At around 8 p.m. police responded to a call "about a custodial dispute regarding Britney Spears's children," said LAPD officer Jason Lee. Nearly three hours later, police determined that a court order stated that the singer's children, who were with Spears at the time, were supposed to be with Kevin Federline, and a transfer was arranged, according to Lee. "While officers were on the scene, they observed Ms. Spears under the influence of an unknown substance," Lee added. "She is now being taken in for an evaluation, more than likely to a hospital. There were no reported injuries to anyone involved including the children." In addition to multiple officers, fire trucks, two ambulance and a police helicopter were all on the scene. At one point, Spears was seen being taken to an ambulance on a gurney. After Spears arrived at the hospital, her father, Jamie, and her ex, Federline – as well as both of her sons – were spotted there. A source confirms that the boys were not being treated for any injuries. Spears, who has visitation rights with her two sons Preston, 2, and Jayden, 1, was scheduled to give the boys over to Federline at 7 p.m. Thursday. A bodyguard for Federline arrived to pick up the boys at the designated time, but Spears refused to relinquish her sons, according to a source. Police – as well as Federline's lawyer Mark Vincent Kaplan – arrived at the house close to 8 p.m., though Kaplan was later seen leaving. Earlier in the day, Spears showed up 90 minutes late to a scheduled deposition in her custody case – and stayed for only a fraction of an hour. Back at her Studio City home directly after the hearing, when a photographer asked if Kaplan was nice to her, Spears, 26, responded with an emphatic, "No!" When reached by PEOPLE, Spears's lawyer Sorrell Trope, who on Wednesday filed a request to withdraw from the singer's custody case, said only: "No comment."

With Britney's daily drama of the day I almost don't notice that everything on t.v. is reruns because of the writers strike. Britney's life is like watching a never ending episode of Melrose Place. Thanks for the entertainment brit brit!

And my addiction continues LOL

Never in all of my life did I ever think I would wear a thong. I would look at them and shudder. Then when I started to lose weight I thought ok let me try these things... and now I can't stop buying them. I love them. It took about ummm 2 days to really get used to them but now I hate when I have to wear regular ones. Lop is forever saying "You waited until you where 42 to even try them" Yep I did. Cause ya never know when one might need 30 pairs of thongs LMAO!!! My son bought me a Victoria's Secret gift card for Christmas.. I tried really I did to use it for other things.. ok I did get the one sweater I had my eye on for 19 dollars (OMG It was marked down form 70, so there was no way I was passing that up), but the thongs kept calling and calling my name LOL. I LOVE the "Pink" collection that they have. Just way to cute stuff.. and of course it is named Pink.. so how can a girl resist. Just looked and I get my delivery tomorrow YEAH!!!

And the new year starts.....

and with a bang it did.... talk about being slammed with work!!! Okay can we go back 2 weeks and maybe I might enjoy it a bit more LOL!! Time sure flies doesn't it. My mom was right when she said the older you get the faster time flies. School starts here tomorrow for my kids. I am so ready for them to go back so that I can have some peace and quiet again LOL. All decorations come down this weekend so it will be a busy one for us here. I love Christmas decorations and it is so sad for me every year to see them be boxed back up again :O( but life goes on until next Christmas.. only what 357 more days LOL
