Harold Camping predicted the world would come to an end at 6pm on May 21, 2011.  But for some reason just like so many others in the past, he seemed to get it wrong.  Darn, now I will actually have to pay my bills, clean my house, cook dinner, take out the trash and keep working for another thirty years!  When will they get it right for goodness sakes, so many get their hopes up thinking they can now be done with the challenges of life, but noooooooo, the show just keeps going on.

Well Mr. Camping received a bit of mockery today at his Family Radio Network headquarters in Oakland, California.  Many camped out to make fun of the evangelical broadcaster’s claim that the end of the world was upon us.  The Family Church of Laughs actually celebrated the world was still in tact, by filling human-shaped balloons with helium and letting them go to simulate souls being lifted to heaven.  Let’s hope they are not doomed, during the next “Rapture”.

It’s interesting how many must have believed the 89-year-old preacher and radio host.   Seriously, why not just assume he may be a little senile at that age?  Really, a prophecy called the “The Rapture” will begin at 6pm on May 21st, in all the world’s time zones, wiping out all non-believers by rolling earthquakes, as the saved believers ascend into heaven?  Does that sound like a movie or what?

Now we all have to look forward to December 21, 2012 when the world ends, according to the Mayan calendar and many believers.  If you are on board, please make sure to send me all your life’s possessions in advance of the end, including cash because I will be sure to make good use of it!

Since the world has not yet ended, feel free to begin your search for a new home here. And if you watch above video to the end, real estate agents did NOT start the rumor!

Robert Traylor, the former NBA and University of Michigan star player, nicknamed “Tractor”, was found dead in SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico on Wednesday, May 11, 2011. He was only 34-years-old which makes this a very untimely death.

Many described him as a “gentle giant” because of his huge smile, and soft demeanor off the court. Traylor played seven years in the NBA but was really more known for his stellar career at Michigan.

San Juan police said Traylor was found dead on the bedroom floor of his oceanfront apartment, where he apparently died from a heart attack.  The search began after he had been missing for a few days.

It is sad to hear of him losing his life at such a young age, the cause of his heart attack is not yet known.

PRESIDENT OBAMA is set to speak live, after Vice President Biden speaks in Ft. Campbell, Kentucky.  The VP is currently talking to the troops and is opening for the President on live TV. The speech is in progress on local networks.

Update: President Obama rallied the troops in a well delivered speech (as usual).  He addressed the unfortunate events of 911 and praised the troops for their hard work.

PLAYSTATION NETWORK announced a security breach by an unknown source this week.  They sent the below email to all users warning of the dangers of the unauthorized intruder’s. It is probably causing withdrawals for many (including myself) especially when it comes to playing popular games on-line like Call of Duty and Grand Theft Auto (which I love).

According to the email posted below, Sony took precautionary measures by shutting down the network, to protect user’s.  It was sent at a great time, because I had just received an email from Hotmail requesting my personal information to avoid a shutdown.  I’m glad I ignored the request!

If you receive a request for personal information, take precautions to avoid a scam.  Everyone should own a Playstation game, it is the best out there and the games rock!




Valued PlayStation(R)Network/Qriocity Customer:

We have discovered that between April 17 and April 19, 2011,
certain PlayStation Network and Qriocity service user account
information was compromised in connection with an illegal and
unauthorized intrusion into our network. In response to this
intrusion, we have:

1) Temporarily turned off PlayStation Network and Qriocity services;

2) Engaged an outside, recognized security firm to conduct a full
and complete investigation into what happened; and

3) Quickly taken steps to enhance security and strengthen our
network infrastructure by rebuilding our system to provide you
with greater protection of your personal information.

We greatly appreciate your patience, understanding and goodwill
as we do whatever it takes to resolve these issues as quickly and
efficiently as practicable.

Although we are still investigating the details of this incident,
we believe that an unauthorized person has obtained the following
information that you provided: name, address (city, state, zip), country,
email address, birthdate, PlayStation Network/Qriocity password and login,
and handle/PSN online ID. It is also possible that your profile data,
including purchase history and billing address (city, state, zip),
and your PlayStation Network/Qriocity password security answers may
have been obtained. If you have authorized a sub-account for your
dependent, the same data with respect to your dependent may have
been obtained. While there is no evidence at this time that credit
card data was taken, we cannot rule out the possibility. If you have
provided your credit card data through PlayStation Network or Qriocity,
out of an abundance of caution we are advising you that your credit
card number (excluding security code) and expiration date may have
been obtained.

For your security, we encourage you to be especially aware of email,
telephone and postal mail scams that ask for personal or sensitive
information. Sony will not contact you in any way, including by email,
asking for your credit card number, social security number or other
personally identifiable information. If you are asked for this information,
you can be confident Sony is not the entity asking. When the PlayStation
Network and Qriocity services are fully restored, we strongly recommend that
you log on and change your password. Additionally, if you use your PlayStation
Network or Qriocity user name or password for other unrelated services or
accounts, we strongly recommend that you change them as well.

To protect against possible identity theft or other financial loss, we
encourage you to remain vigilant, to review your account statements and
to monitor your credit reports. We are providing the following information
for those who wish to consider it:
– U.S. residents are entitled under U.S. law to one free credit report annually
from each of the three major credit bureaus. To order your free credit report,
visit or call toll-free (877) 322-8228.

– We have also provided names and contact information for the three major U.S.
credit bureaus below. At no charge, U.S. residents can have these credit bureaus
place a “fraud alert” on your file that alerts creditors to take additional steps
to verify your identity prior to granting credit in your name. This service can
make it more difficult for someone to get credit in your name. Note, however,
that because it tells creditors to follow certain procedures to protect you,
it also may delay your ability to obtain credit while the agency verifies your
identity. As soon as one credit bureau confirms your fraud alert, the others
are notified to place fraud alerts on your file. Should you wish to place a
fraud alert, or should you have any questions regarding your credit report,
please contact any one of the agencies listed below:

Experian: 888-397-3742;; P.O. Box 9532, Allen, TX 75013
Equifax: 800-525-6285;; P.O. Box 740241, Atlanta, GA 30374-0241
TransUnion: 800-680-7289;; Fraud Victim Assistance Division,
P.O. Box 6790, Fullerton, CA 92834-6790

– You may wish to visit the website of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission at or reach the FTC at 1-877-382-4357 or 600 Pennsylvania
Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20580 for further information about how to protect
yourself from identity theft. Your state Attorney General may also have advice
on preventing identity theft, and you should report instances of known or
suspected identity theft to law enforcement, your State Attorney General,
and the FTC. For North Carolina residents, the Attorney General can be
contacted at 9001 Mail Service Center, Raleigh, NC 27699-9001; telephone

General can be contacted at 200 St. Paul Place, 16th Floor, Baltimore, MD 21202;
telephone: (888) 743-0023; or

We thank you for your patience as we complete our investigation of this
incident, and we regret any inconvenience. Our teams are working around the
clock on this, and services will be restored as soon as possible. Sony takes
information protection very seriously and will continue to work to ensure that
additional measures are taken to protect personally identifiable information.
Providing quality and secure entertainment services to our customers is
our utmost priority. Please contact us at 1-800-345-7669 should you have any
additional questions.

OPRAH WINFREY has been the “queen of talk shows” for 25 years.  Her ratings have soared through the roof during her long run, and she has probably earned more than all hosts combined.  But Oprah’s reign is coming to an end, with her last show set to air May 25, 2011.

As a young woman with all odds stacked against her, she was told she would never beat Phil Donohue and many probably thought she would not last.  But as we all know, her billion dollar empire continues to grow, and she proved all her critics wrong.

It is unbelievable to think that I was a very young woman when she began her show.  She inspired me to know that we are all capable of reaching higher limits, without having to be perfect.  Oprah has been truly a great example of what America has to offer not matter who you are.  She was overweight, African-American and a woman and still made it to the top.  So for all of you who do not believe hard work and perseverance is the key to success…Oprah says “in your face with a can of mace” (or something like that!).

Oprah keep on rockin…many will miss you in this venue, but we know you have far more to accomplish in life.

Nadin Khoury, 13, said he is ready to testify against his attackers after they posted his beating on You Tube.  The Pennsylvania boy was in severly beaten by a group of bullies who allegedly took turns kicking and punching him, before hanging him upside down from a tree. 

A total of Six boys are accused of this vicious attack.  I was happy to hear they were arrested at Upper Darby High School on Monday, then charged with the kidnapping and assault of Khoury.

The beating took place on January 11, 2011 and then the youths had the nerve to post it on You Tube.  Khoury was interviewed today and is quoted as saying, “I was scared and angry, all at the same time”.  And I can see why, video posted on You Tube shows the completely traumatized teen, screaming for the young boys, with ages ranging from 13-17, to stop pummeling him.

At least Khoury had a bit of relief today, when several professional ball players surprised him on The View. While he broke down for a moment, you could see he was happy for their support.

What were these boys thinking?  Well, this is my message to bullies;

The mystery continues; 53 Seahawks found massacred at Chicago’s Soldier Field today.  Well, the Bears won and are hopefully headed to the Super Bowl.  But not so fast, they still have to get by their rivals, the Green Bay Packers, next week!  It is a much anticipated game (so my husband says) and is the first time, the two teams will meet in the playoffs, since 1941.  And just think, it was only a year ago, they were considering the release of their head coach Lovie Smith.

Probably a good thing they kept him, because if they play even close to how they did today, they will be headed to the Super Bowl on February 6th.  Final score 35-24, can you say, “kicked butt”!
