Who came up with the idea of 555-XXXX phone numbers you always hear on tv and in the movies, the phone company?


fro I can answer this one. A thousand years ago [I'm just kiddin' lol] A few years ago, actors/actressess used to call out any number in a story line...maybe while they were in a fake telephone booth or they pretend to give out a number to another actor and what happened was.....the numbers were actually REAL numbers for REAL PEOPLE in the REAL worldEek So the producers decided [with the cooperation of the telephone company] to start using dummy numbers....beginning with "555" which are numbers that in real life doesn't exist/or work. That way it would keep the t.v./movies producers from being SUED. Cuz believe it or not, folks were ACTUALLY calling those numbers looking for "Mannix" or "Dr. Kildare" and other television/movie personalities...which I think is a hoot cuz didn't they know that the numbers only work on t.v./in the movies.....not in REAL LIFE?sck But! Apparently not..and as a result of that is why they began using "dummy/fake" numbers. fro
Yesterday, when I finally made it home, I went into my bedroom and lo and behold...there was a rainbow on the ceiling, just above my bed. Totally freaked me out. Eek

It's been hot as hell lately, but me. . .I had a rainbow over my bed. 19 It was the damnedest thing and I was so taken back, I didn't think to take a picture.

P.S. . .I hope this is a sign that I'll have wonderful MIND BLOWING sex (once more) before I die. 1

Do you have any cut glass or crystal in your room that might be acting like a prism?

Another source might be water vapor. Do you have a vaporizer, water mister, or fogger?

I have a crystal vase which I hadn't considered until now (it's in a different area of the room). I also have a small man-made waterfall/pond in my backyard (& my bedroom is to the rear of the house).

I guess that explains it. . .

ah well. . .

The fact that by chance everything was in the propper place for nature to 'work'; the sun, it's light, the water, your room, and bed ect... is still pretty amazing no?

You should make it a yearly observance on the day all of the 'factors' are in place to create this miracle of nature...like equinoxes and solstices... You could start your own religion by personifying and historizing the 'rainbow visitor'...lol!

Forgive me, I'm in a very silly mood today...

yeah

I still think it's pretty awesome ... certainly most people aren't so lucky to experience a thing as beautiful as that.

Sounds to me like somebody was smiling down on you! Smile

I'm running around like a chicken with it's head cut off. nono

My nephew's prom is tonight and we're having a champagne party before he leaves for the prom. I had to run home to pick up my camcorder and then BACK to the store because I forgot the bottles of champagne. td6

Damn. . .

My flight (to San Francisco) leaves at 10:00pm and I haven't even packed yet. . .

the graduation is tomorrow at 12noon and I haven't the slightest idea what I'm gonna wear.

and I have a headache ek

Damn, damn, damn bang

One day I plan to get more organized because I truly despise all this craziness.

Anyway. . .

If I don't check back, y'all have a fabulous holiday weekend.

Much love & positive vibrations, brothers & sisters tfro
Peace...


I just left a property in Detroit which was for sale by a bank. The property was in one of Detroit's most affluent neighborhoods. Three finished floors (5 Bedrooms, 3 baths). Ceramic tile kitchens and baths, attached garage, hard wood floors, fire place...And because of this wild market, the bank was asking only 40k for the property..

The crazy things is that things are only going to get worse before they get better in the Real Estate/Credit industry..Things may never get better...

I think we are seeing the collapse of the American economy.



Whirling Moat
Emotionally unstable women who love their pets more than they love people.

I particularly don't care for pets. And I certainly disapprove of people who allow their pets on furniture. Case in point, I was dating someone I felt had long term potential. We were on our sixth date in eight weeks. We head back to her crib after a concert in the park. The chemistry is hot. I'm thinking I'm about to get me some, but no, her dog is fucking up my flow. I'm trying to be romantic and her damn dog is jumping on me, on the furniture, running around the house barking for no damn reason. She has one of those little hyper dogs I can't stand. I tell my date in a diplomatic way for her not to allow her dog to jump on me. She gets offended that I would ask her such a question. From this point on the vibe we had is flushed down the toilet. Rather than removing the dog so we can have our moment together she picks up the mutt, moves to the opposite side of the living room and grooms the little pest. DATE OVER!

Bottom line is this, a man shouldn't have to compete with a damn dog for some affection. This wasn't the first time I experienced a situation like this but rest assure it will be my last. From here on I no longer will be dating women with pets. Now I understand why she's 33 and never been married - because she loves her dog more than she can love a man. People who are overly attached to their pets need to stop this silly nonsense and grow up.

Sorry for the rant but I had to get this off my chest.

Peace out.
I just visited a good friend and army comrade in Slidell, La, for the 4th and of course one of the topics we discussed was our time in Iraq and what does it mean today.

Of all the thoughts I had the one that stuck was, if I could ask all those who were on the band wagon from jump street for this noble and glorious call to save the world from oppressive regimes and dictators, would they still have the same opinion and gung ho attitude after 5 years of <whatever the mission was/is>?

Nope. Roll Eyes

It was a sham. And all of you were (and many still are) being used like pawns in a chess game.

And the ONLY person that doesn't know that is your Commander-in-Chief .. the one that used you in the first place. sck

nono He may be an illiterate, inarticulate, red neck, asshole, but he knows EXACTLY who's interests he serves and why he(and his fellow imperialists) did all this. Don't mistake his stubborn public denial(arrogance) for personal ignorance.
I am grateful for family...

My sister sent me a video of my two year old nephew talking...and he was soooooooooooo cute!

My other sister sent me pictures of her oldest son and her twins...cuties! Cuties! Cuties!

Then I talked to a cousin today who is pregnant with twins...

...our babies are so magnificent!

"Wisdom Is A Woman Who Loves The Lil Boo Bears!"
Yesterday, I took my daughter to the movies but before we could get in the door, we witnessed an altercation between a young man (who appeared to be late teens, early twenties ) and a young girl (about 13 or 14 years of age). . .

The young man had the girl on the ground pounding her with his fists and also kicking her. I screamed for him to stop.

When he wouldn't stop, I reacted to what I saw: a young girl not much older than my own child, being physically abused by a male much bigger & taller than the both of us. I quickly gave my daughter the car keys and told her to go wait in the car. . .

I ran up to the young man and jumped on his back. I wrapped my legs tightly around his waist and pulled his head back (in an attempt to make him stop). I could hear screaming in the background. . .

To make a long story short, others came out of the theatre to help. But I didn't release the firm grip I had on him until I was sure the brothers had everything under control.

The police were called and as much as I hated to see it. . .the young man was arrested.

I don't normally frequent this neck of the woods, in fact, normally, I turn my nose up at the thought of doing business in this area. . .

unfortunately, that particular theatre was showing the movie we wanted to see. . .at a time we could see it.

I explained to my daughter that the ONLY reason I became physically involved was because the girl appeared to be very young.

However, a situation like this should only be considered on a case by case basis. In other words, I wouldn't make something like this a habit, especially, when 911 is available. . .

but I felt it was the right thing to do at the time.

[& thank gawd there was no weapon was involved)

It was obvious the girl was a minor and ill prepared to protect herself. . .Had it been two adults, I would've simply called the police.

Turns out the girl is 14 and the guy is 22.

Now my arm will be in a sling for a couple days.
Wow Fab ... This must be the week for interventions ...

Yesterday, I was downtown headed for a meeting when I came across a [Black] woman [in her 20's] walking with her young son [probably about 2 years old]. Well, the little boy was struggling to keep up with her and eventually did what little kids do ... he just plopped down and began crying. First, the mother kept walking, then she turned around and let out a string of profanities telling the little boy to get up and come on. When the little boy remained seated and cried louder, the woman came back. I was thinking that she would pick the little boy up and continue on her way; but no ... the woman snitched the boy by his arm to his feet [cussing the whole time] and when the little boy reached to be picked up, the woman began kneeing the little boy in his chest and a couple of times in his face, telling the boy, "Naw, you lazy a$$ MF. I gotta walk and so is your little punk a$$."

It was about then that I approached the woman and suggested that there probably was a better way to handle this situation.

Her response was to tell me to mind my own business.

My response was to say, "Sista, my people ... especially our children, are my busy."

The woman glared at me for a second, then picked up the l;ittle boy and carried him the thirty feet to the building where they were headed.

I work in the juvenile court here and was left with the belief that I would be seeing this family again ... in a dependency hearing. Frown

fro Not that this is a competition....or that I'm trying to outdo anyone...but! Check this out. I was in line yesterday. And this young woman about late 30s was talking shyte to her kids. One child was at least 7 and the other was no more than 16 or 17. The line was long and the mother was braiding the little girl's hair. The older girl said to the mother..."you treat her better than you treat me." The mother said " no I don't. I wouldn't take a bullet for you....and I wouldn't take one for her...so yall equal."

Of course I was devestated....AND....it wasn't none of my business how she communicate with her kids.....but! I had to tell her. "Ma'dame [black women hate to be called that!]....please don't tell your children that." "Oh, she said trying to clean it up, "I mean if that happens I would try to tell the person with the gun to take me instead." Yeah right. I thought. I told her very gently cuz she is GHETTO FABULOUS...."there are a lot of things you can take back....if this, in fact, happened to one of your children-you can't take it back." I also said, "I'm sure a lot parents wished they had the opportunity to take the bullet that killed their child....including me." It is soooooo sad to me that parents....especially BLACK parents put more value/respect on THINGS and STUFF....and less value/respect on their children or their children's lives... fro
