Handsome and deadly

Takeaway from these crime show; lookout! There are thousands of handsome, charismatic and well dressed men out there who will kill you and love it!

All 3 suspects in Heathers case fit the above description.

NEVER have initial dates in your home or the mans home.

Public place! (I choose daylight hours as an added precaution)

Light posts, filler posts

Any period between 2007 and 2014 where I either didn't post at all, or posted music videos and the like was for a very sad reason

Ive been stalked since 2005. Between 05 and 13 (in particular) I feared for my life around the clock.

I was shot at, poisoned, followed, daily break ins, looting.

To my knowledge the perpetrators were never charged.

While Im still being targeted and dealing with repeat auto vandalism; as of 2015 I feel very safe mostly.

Through the years the violence escalated and cops had no particular interest in helping.

I knew Id b murdered, made a few attempts on my life with the knowledge that it's much better to take your own life then to be murdered.

Nowadays a post on pop culture doesn't mean im afraid to write the truth; conversely , I can honestly say that the details of this living hell I probably will not release in their entirety until after my passing

I've been looking for collaborators for quite a long time this is not something I can do on my own which is why my autobiography never got published.

Have you ever tried to write a book while you were on the run or in immense Danger ?I can only think of a couple of authors who have.

Highest jump ever

This is exciting news! "Fbi investigating trump team"

Other's perceptions

Got 3 friend requests from girls I knew in elementary and junior high.

They said some variation of:

You were so much fun

You were so happy

You were always smiling

(This is stunning, shocking, but Ill take it.!)

Long lost family

Last nights episode took place in flagstaff. Cried from beginning to end.

WOW!

I just think this is so exciting I had to put it in here before I'm even done watching the show Jennifer Gray's grandfather came over on the same ship that my great-grandfather came over on however her grandfather came over three years earlier than my great-grandfather did and they both arrived in New York!

Ship PRETORIA

Encouraged

some things have happened in the last couple of days that have reminded me that I am still capable of very deep joy.

The upcoming days will tell me whether or not I can hang on to feeling so encouraged.

I have nearly everything going against me.

I will say Trump doesn't scare me as much anymore.  The millions of left wing (and rt. wing!) Trump protesters make me feel empowered.

Im still an activist, I sign many petitions each month, sent to me by:

www.change.org

www.moveon.org

www.ourrevolution.org

(Some of the links might be dot com)

Twice removed

After reading the list of notable living Baltimoreans, looks like one of the names is very close relative.

That close relative had a very close relationship with Anne Franks family.

That being said, Ive wondered if any of my ancestors died in Holocaust...

History class bored me to death in school. But now that I know so much about my ancestors, I feel fascinated, truly connected to America n and European history.

Scary

I regularly get messages from Gmail or Yahoo telling me that people are trying to hack into my accounts it's very scary and this time it's particularly freaky because the person who tried to break into my account is in the country of Iran!

I don't use that account anymore so I cant change passcode, dont remember.

Tell me about your experiences being hacked, stalked andor cyberstalked?

Huge reasons I can't move

Ive wanted (needed?) To live in san Diego since 94.

But where can I go with a 750 month check.?

4/5 of subsidized programs that I was living in I experienced nearly daily felonies, violent crime.

I mean just to give you an example of what's going on in this country all I had to do yesterday was Google San Diego subsidized and Section 8 housing violent crime and a whole bunch of Articles popped up

I feel desperate to live in a mild climate year-round that would also allow me to control my weight because I'd be able to walk year round outside.

The logical thing to do would be to go to San Diego for vacation to explore it first but obviously there's no money to take trips or vacations to preview places to live period

So while I'm grateful in many ways it doesn't feel like a home where I'm at because I had to live in the apartment and the address was selected for me there is a slim chance that I could become a homeowner through various programs for low-income people but given hell absolutely grueling everything is and he'll absolutely grueling poverty is it's probably not even worth it to try to become a homeowner comma along move to an apartment in a warmer climate

To get into subsidized housing was a 11 and a half your weight. Yes I am redundant in my post but many of my current readers most of my current readers have not ever seen my older posts, so I don't feel bad about being redundant!

What has your experience been in regards to waiting for or living in subsidized housing in the United States or in other countries for that matter?

Soo rare

Its so rare to receive exemplary customer service in any industry...

So, when I do receive it I make sure to praise them.  Often ill compliment them on their businesses fb page.

And, if its restaurant, taxi etc. I also give a generous tip WITH big compliment.

Heres an amazing story that happened to me around Christmas;

I called the Medicaid number to give them my new mailing address. The man replied: "I see here you have $60 in unused benefits. I'll tell you what items are in the catalog so you can place an order!

(Things like heating pads, or otc medications!)

I told him thats an amazing surprise Christmas present!

If you also love Prince

If you love Prince as much as I do you have absolutely got to see this true verdicts on what really happened regarding his death.

Passed

Terrifying to think of failing, but after just two required medical appointments I passed my review, shwew!

Review

Awesome the way "Lem" practices peace in every situation.

Extreme stress of poverty

I made 5 or so trips to optical store for minor fixes, but 10 weeks ago earpiece broke off, then they bent.

8 weeks ago applied at lions club, never heard back.

Despite my having heard from insurance agent which places my insurance is contracted with (for eyeglass purchase) when I drove there yesterday she said, the agent was wrong.

She was kind enough to advocate for me to get another appointment at Lions Club

I made my roughly trip 7 to Nationwide Vision insurance and glasses place yesterday( by accident) I thought I had been told I could go there to get glasses but when I arrive the optician said no your access/medicaid does not cover glasses, only covers children.

And she took my card and said oh you have Access Health Choice! She said go ahead and start choosing which glasses you like so I did that and she said well your insurance notgoing to pay for any of those and your prescription is high that means that you're going to have to buy very very cheap frames. I picked up two pairs of cheap frames and she tried to put the order in the computer and it was rejected due to the fact that the cheap frames will not hold the heavy material necessary for my prescription.!

She charged me and this really surprise me she charged me $27 basically she is required to have me pay the co-pay immediately and then she sent an order hoping and praying that it will work but she doesn't know if it will or not and said she might end up having to refund my $27!! Stress!

Lot of run around and a lot of  being told falsehoods.  As I've been telling you for years everything is broken and nothing gets done right especially for the poor!

I have lots of panic attacks, dont sleep more then an hour a night.

Remembering

This is what my childhood was like, but worse, much worse.

Loved

I loved every child I ever cared for as if they were my own flesh and blood!

Tcm

Precious. Hilarious!

In my dna

No question in my mind! Had I not been "given up" for adoption, I would have ended up in the performing arts.  Most likely singing and or dancing.

Congratulations to Tinneke and Tammy!

Book recommend

"We need a path to become legal, there are 11 million undocumented persons who are already here in the states!"

(paraphrase)

Ive always known

I've always known that Hollywood will want my story because it is so absolutely outrageous and rare period I told you an awful lot but there's also an awful lot I haven't told you , in regards to the details.

Hollywood taking my story seems even more realistic, in that one of my relatives has already had a movie made about his life, and one of my biological relatives is a Hollywood director.

(But has never met me)

Confirmation

I have confirmed that the movie Diner was a recreation the life of at least one of my biological uncles who I never got to meet

My recommendation

I recommend the book by Peter Hayes

Please check out the interview with Hayes at Tucson festival of books (today)

First image of paternal great grandfather

Holy Bleep! Thank you, NPR!?

Was seeking images of my biological great grandfather, just to find out the story NPR did on Jews and beer has a photo of my ggf with his family!

I cant tell whose who, but Im sure the Jewish museum of Maryland would know.

;)

Just a dream

Oh what I wouldn't give to have rhe show pay for me to go on a European journey to make my ancestral quest come alive!

Kiss me im Irish!

With every passing week Im learning more about my roots, who I am.

Thanks, in part to the girls in my genealogy group!

I just found out my 4x ggf (or gggf) was born in Ireland in the 1800s and immigrated to Baltimore in the 1800s. as well!

This March 17, I'll don a "kiss me" shirt (green!) and it will have a much deeper meaning!

Liar

my birth mother must be a compulsive liar it turns out that she did not spend the first few years of her life in New Mexico as she claimed in fact she was born in Owings Mills Maryland basically right up the road from where I was raised by My adoptive parents as a baby she lives on Reisterstown Road also just three to five miles away from where I was raised Newman

My adoptive mother was also a liar claiming that my birth parents lived in Virginia

I now have names of my maternal great-grandparents their names were Sylvester King and Minerva Nelson

Start to finish

This is the first time I ever got to see the 2008 film from start to finish if I had known that they were making a dance movie just one mile from my apartment I would have gone and watched it being filmed.

Extremely cool!

Severe insomnia

While I'm certain I could benefit from a sleep study when I heard how horrible it is to be hooked up from head to toe

I know that I would never fall asleep at a study.

Unfortunately, I'm awake nearly all night every night with what I just googled gain,sleep paralysis forums.

sleep hallucinations hypnagogic and I can't remember the other one.

Im also sure I have ptsd nightmares.

Im a lucid vivid dreamer, likely as result of microsleeps.

Its a real sad situation. It would be too awkward to describe the details of the nightmares/hypnogogia but I can tell you, im always the victim of violent crimes.

No wonder I cant stay awake during the day.  Additionally, my friend with lyme is sure my adrenal glands are shot.

Happy birthday

Well I just reached my 10-year anniversary blogging.

Happy birthday to my blog happy birthday to my blog happy birthday to my blog happy birthday to my blog

Quote of the night

" nobody had ever asked me in my life what it felt like to be me but once I have an opportunity to share that I felt true peace my son said that one day there would be a writer in the family and that it would be me!" (Paraphrase)

(Unfortunately I only got to see the last 1/2 of this poignant movie tonight on tbs with commercials. I could strongly relate to the servants life experiences on many manyy levels. Because, I haven't exactly had the typical experiences of an average white woman, as you know)

On the health front

I know that the doctors don't even remotely grasp what life is like for me .

I mean my right arm is essentially useless because of shoulder bursitis.

  my right foot near the toes the pain is so severe that I never know when I'll be able to walk. Even an up down motion of foot is unbearable.

There are also serious female issues, some too embarrassing to mention. Glad to be in menopause. Would bleed 2 weeks plus.

Even leaning over to brush teeth excruciating on spine.

If I sit for more then 10 minutes both limbs and feet fall asleep.

Big time vision disturbances with floaters. Slowly losing hearing.

Too embarrassed to go into depth about I.b.s. but some symptoms serious.

Frequent migraines and frequent nausea.

The pain is bodywide. I can't truly sleep. and arthritis and all of the joints has become quite severe anywhere from the neck all the way down to the tailbone

I never did come up with $75 to renew the medical marijuana card unfortunately and oxycontin really doesn't do anything at all to make life better

There's no question that I have Crohn's or colitis or something like that but calling it IBS is a big problem and I would truly say that the pain is excruciating and unbearable that's why the best part of my life is when I'm sleeping I'm just speaking in the my recorder with the situation so please bear with me. More than week I was limping I had to go to urgent care and they told me that because I had to go off gabapentin is why I can't walk without limping.

I thought I might have cancer because of lump on spine but it turned out to b just a cyst.

Couple this with abject poverty and its nothing short of living hell.

Most of the girls in my lyme group are lyme literate and can pinpoint exactly which aspects of lyme disease are causing my problems.

Again since I cant type easily on a smartphone, this piece will have some repetition and hasn't been corrected.

Sweet!

Funny, sweet, stellar, precious!

When bio. parents out of picture

It only took me 28 years to confirm!

My biological maternal grandmother who I only met once, was named

Jessie Minerva King Duchane!

Thanx ABC

This is amazing. Crying alternating tears of joy and sadness. Haven't missed a night.

In my opinion

Extraordinary programming. One of the best things on cable television!

First time in history

This is the first time ever I've seen Primetime Justice with Ashleigh Banfield and I can pretty much bet my bottom dollar that you will never again in history seen a Baltimore story and a Flagstaff story in one news program ever again!

To Flagstaff cop that punched a female citizen did indeed quit the team. While I can't say how effective Flagstaff cops are I can say that they are the kindest and most polite I have ever met.

A flag bus was hijacked last night, no citizens harmed physically, but likely traumatized for life.

Accused

7 Baltimore cops were accused of robbing citizens.

It is surprising, conversely, Baltimore and Carroll County Maryland cops are the worst I've experienced in my lifetime!
