For Rocco Jr

Close the toilet! When it comes to both showing and photographing your home, this little trick can make a surprising difference.

Give each room a purpose. That spare room you’ve been using as an office / guest room /dumping ground won’t help sell your home unless you show buyers how they can use it themselves. So pick a use (office, guest room, crafts room) and clearly stage the space to showcase that purpose.

Get rid of bulky furniture. Your furniture should fit the scale of the room, so get rid of any extra or oversized items that could make your space look smaller than it really is.

Pay attention to smells. “Don’t cook bacon in your home the day of a showing,” advises Rachel Weinberg, a broker at Wright Kingdom Real Estate in Boulder, Colorado. “Although it might taste great, the smell is strong and lingers for a long time. You don’t want your home to smell like a fast food restaurant!”

Clear out the clutter. You want buyers to focus on how awesome your space is, not how messy it looks. Banish that piles of shoes from the entry, that stack of mail from the kitchen table and anything else that detracts from your home’s gorgeous features.

Make every surface shine. From ceiling fans to floors and everything in between, clean your home until it sparkles.

Legitimate rape?

Legitimate rape or forced incestuous relationship?

Marcus Wesson married his step daughter, Elizabeth, when she was 8-years-old and started having sexual relations with her when she was 12, married her when she was 14. Soon after the wedding she gave birth to their first child. He married three nieces and two daughters in homemade wedding ceremonies, each bearing his children. Court records say he had 18 children with 7 women.

Wesson was convicted of nine counts of first-degree murder on June 17, 2005. He claimed his 25-year-old daughter did the killings of his other children and nieces, then killed herself. Wesson  was also found guilty on 14 counts of forcible sexual assault and the sexual molestation of seven of his daughters and nieces. Wesson was sentenced to death on June 27, 2005

No Political Signs

Election day soon to be upon us and I still have not shared the above photos with local Election board (or whatever it is called.)

I told a young woman that she could not hold a campaign sign in apartment complex parking lot ~ she said she could ~ her lawyer said it was okay. I called the Election board to complain. They said it is okay 10 feet from the door.

The first photo shows where all those campaign materials the gal and her helper were passing out to people waiting on line to enter the building ~ smack dab next to the door. Or they were distributing campaign materials closer than 10' from the door ~ anyone waiting at that door could read the flyers laying on top of the overflowing trash can.

The second photo clearly states No Political Signs. Those signs were not visible from the building round-about where the campaigners were standing ~ because those signs were blocked by people standing in line to enter the door.

There was not enough space in the room holding the voting machines to allow more than two or three people to enter the building at any given time. There were two lines inside the building ~ mostly residents, but also handicapped and others from outside ~ all waiting for space to enter the voting machine room.

The line outside the door stretched 50 and/or 60 feet along the sidewalk adjacent to the round-about, depending on which side of the bus shelter the crowd stood. The bus shelter was erected and is maintained by B'nai B'rith which likely means section of sidewalk is also B'nai B'rith property.

The campaigners were not standing along the public sidewalk near the bus shelter ~ I repeat ~ they were trespassing & loitering on private property.

I was all set to vote for the candidate, but changed my mind due to his campaigners who, I thought, by law were not allowed to canvass for votes at polling places.

I think the City needs to rethink their regulations.

I have voted for many years in many different polling places. I can not imagine it being okay for campaigners to enter a building stand in a hallway leading to doorway of polling place. Or, as sometimes was the case, entering the building, walking down the hallway, down the steps, then standing in another hallway leading up to the entrance door of the room where voting was taken place.

I doubt that would be allowed anywhere and do not think it should be allowed at B'nai B'rith simply because the waiting area was not inside the building but outside.

"I hate to tell you, Puerto Rico, but you've thrown our budget a little out of whack..."

As if three back to back destructive hurricanes were the fault of Puerto Rico.

"a real catastrophe like Katrina..."

So, what, devastation caused by Hurricanes Harvey, Maria, and Irma, were fake?

What does a person whose home was flattened, destroyed, do with paper towels? Is it a bad joke, "hey, peeps, use these to mop up flood waters?"

Would not have been so disrespectful if he'd thrown out rolls of toilet paper. Ditto, with the rice ~ where do people without power, without stoves cook it?


The president did not call these chicks bitches for disrespecting the flag, as he did a black woman (as in, "son of a...")

Better than angry name-calling, would be to address the grievances of citizens who silently protest by refusing to idolize a flag of a country that disrespects people due to skin color.

A black president attempting to address the issue of unwarranted excessive force by police officers is slammed as being anti-police, racist; so much better if a white president dealt with the issue.

But the white guy tried to use his office to influence firing of football players in violation of 18 U.S. Code § 227 simply for exercising their 1st Amendment right to peaceful protests. And, influence he did, such as NASCAR officials threatening race car drivers from similar actions and, if factual, millions boycotting football games.

A celebrity is some one who is well known. #45 is one of them ~ known for tabloid expose' articles concerning his marriages and infidelities; well-known for his television show; well-known for Trump towers. He lives in NYC, not Hollywood.

Many well-known people live all over the world. Actors or movie stars are actual celebrities whether they live in Hollywood or not, not "so called celebrities."

Howard Stern is also a celebrity that does not live in Hollywood. Likewise Susan Saradon; Whoopie Goldberg; endless list of celebrities that do not live in Hollywood.

He is wishing they'd blow shit up ~ not just thinking about it, wishing for it. A terrorist threat? Um...

Using the pledge as proof

Jeff Jones would do well to look up the history of the Pledge of Allegiance if he is going to offer it up as proof of his argument. The pledge did not exist in 1776 when the union was formed. It did not come around until the early 1900s and it was another few decades before a president made it official.

Fed Ex

As if Republicans never lie, never murder citizens of the world through illegal invasions of countries like Iraq?

Many, many people like Carol Weir who post hateful, angry comments, than they claim it is Democrats or Liberals that are the hateful ones. Sad, sad world.
