Now The Truth Comes Out About Gloria Allread and Octumom

Now The Truth Comes Out About Gloria Allred and Octumom

Now we know why Nadya Suleman called the police on Gloria Allred and fired Angels in Waiting. Before Nadya had even agreed to have them come in their home in February, Gloria Allred had filed a complaint with the department of social services against Nadya Suleman. She had no basis for the complaint, she just wanted Nadya Suleman investigated to see if she was having problems. This kind of probing is not usually done by social services and I am sure that they ignored the complaint.

How awful of Gloria Allred to do such a thing. I cannot believe that Nadya Suleman agreed to have them in her home knowing that Gloria Allred did that and that Gloria represented Angels in Waiting.

Why does Gloria Allred need to be involved? Because she inserted herself. She does not need to be involved and if she had not been involved this would not have happened this way.

Go chase a different ambulance Gloria! You give attorneys a bad name.

What is Nadya Suleman Trying to Hide?

Nadya Suleman has fired the community agency Angel's of Mercy who had offered her 12 assistants to help her with her kids. The assistance was valued at $135,000 per month. I knew when I first heard about this assistance that Nadya would not like it. She does not want that many witnesses to whatever goes on in that household. Nadya claims that she wants to hire her own nannies. How would she do that? How would she pay for her own nannies?

Now she risks losing her kids to social services because she cannot take care of them. I do not agree that social services should take away her kids, but I am sure they will try.

Who in their right mind would deny this awesome help. I think that could be the problem, may be she is not in her right mind.

Dr. Phil, Nadya needs you again, please help her before she causes more trouble for herself and her children.

Kahului, Maui, Hawaii

Kahului, Maui, Hawaii

Kahului is located on the northern side of the island of Maui in the island chain of Hawaii. There are no active volcanoes on this island although people say that Haleakela could come back one more time and explode again. I don't know, but I do know that this is one of the most beautiful islands in the chain. There is an airport on this island so you can get to it easily. There are many nice places to stay, although Kahului is great, you may want to stay in the more trendy, Lahaina which is on the southwest side of the island.

Hilo, Hawaii

Hilo, Hawaii

Hilo, Hawaii is located on the eastern side of the Big Island of Hawaii. It is best known for being the tsunami capitol of the world although with their new notification system they seem to be doing better at controlling the damage. Hilo is not located near any active volcanoes, but you can drive about 2 hours to see one if you wish. It rains a lot in Hilo so do not expect your entire visit to be sunny. Your visit will be humid and hot but mostly cloudy. It is about 80 degrees year round. There is an airport here which is nice.

Kihei, Maui, Hawaii

Kihei, Maui, Hawaii

Kihei is located on the southern part of the island of Maui. It is very beautiful and becoming more and more popular. The beaches are great and I have noticed that they are not very crowded. It is best to avoid traveling here during the winter because that is the busiest time. It is very hot and humid and most likely over cast and cloudy. It rains throughout the year so you may run into rain also. You will love your trip to Kihei, but you will also appreciate home because the humidity here is strangling. Don't forget to check out Hana on the eastern side.

Pearl City, Oahu, Hawaii

Pearl City, Oahu, Hawaii

Pearl City, Hawaii is so beautiful, plus there are many local attractions and historic landmarks in a small area so it is easy to visit everything that you want to do. There are beaches nearby and lots of fun things to do, such as parasailing, deep sea fishing, horseback riding, visit botanical gardens and other fun adventures. You will want to visit Pearl City at least once so that you can take in all of the history of the area. Great place to go whale watching in the winter and snorkeling all year long. I recommend this destination for everyone of all ages.

Oakland, California

Oakland, California

Oakland, California may have some what of a bad reputation, but I grew up in this area and it is not true. There are some bad sections of Oakland such as East 14th Street, but there are also a lot of very nice, high end areas such as the Oakland Hills. There are also a lot of excellent restaurants and plenty of fun things to do. The Oakland Zoo is a great place to take kids because it is small enough to walk around and see the animals fairly close. I was surprised the last time I was there because the same monkeys that I saw thirty years ago as a child are still there.

Fresno, California

Fresno, California

Fresno, California is one of my least favorite cities in California, however, I do admit that it has been improving itself over the years. It is a very affordable place to raise a family. I think the crime rate is kind of high and there is not very much for a tourist to do so you don't need to go there unless you are visiting family or just driving through. They do have their own college, Fresno State. Highway 5 runs through here and it is very ugly. There are a lot of accidents on this strip of highway due to the fog in the area.

Alameda, California

Alameda, California

Alameda is a cute little town on the San Francisco Bay. It is directly on the water with many lovely little restaurants and more antique shops than you can count. It is a wonderful place to live because it is kind of isolated yet just a hop, skip and a jump from Oakland. You must take a bridge to get here, because it is technically an island. The homes are all older but mostly refurbished. You will love the unique architecture of the area. Lovely place to take a stroll in the evening. Close to Oakland and San Francisco Bay.

Martinez, California

Martinez, California

This is a lovely little town in the East Bay Area outside of San Francisco. It is on the delta and you can fish from this location. This is the town that I bought my first home in. It was a 700 square foot Spanish Style home built in 1929. I wish I still owned it today. It tripled in value five years after I sold it. The area is packed with antique shops and wonderful restuarants. There is also a county court house, county jail and country recorders office. The charm is just oozing from this quaint small town. Home of the Albatross Restaurant.

Fourth Police Officer Dies in Oakland Shootout

Fourth Police Officer Dies in Oakland Shootout

This tragedy that could have been prevent, just seems to get worse. We now have word that the fourth police officer wounded in the Oakland shootout has died. The gunman was a parolee that should not have been paroled.

Being a police officer is tough enough but to be one in the city of Oakland, California is very difficult and dangerous. The crime rate is very high. There is a very high black population in the city. Many blacks claim that they have been abused by the police.

In neighboring cities where the crime rate is lower, the citizens do not claim abuse by the police. I am just stating the facts. People need to take responsibility for their actions. Parents need to parent their children, fathers need to be fathers and police need to do the right thing to keep our citizens safe. If these things were happening more often in Oakland, California the crime and violence would be less.

Calculate Non Taxable Mortgage Interest For California Residents

Taxable Mortgage Interest For California Residents

Many residents of California are concerned that they may not be able to write off their mortgage interest. This is simply not true. You can write off your mortgage interest on your taxes, but excessive mortgage amounts will send a red flag to the IRS.

The tax code allows Californians to calculate the allowable write off by adding the original price of their home, plus the dollar amount of any improvements (actual amounts spent on improvements) and $100,000. Once these three items are added up they cannot be more than the homeowner owes on the property.

Any amount over the calculated amount cannot be written off on your taxes.


$150,000 Original Price of Home
$ 30,000 New kitchen

Current loan amount $250,000 - Amount is less than allowed so you are within your limits.

Current loan amount $350,000 - Amount is more than allowed so you are not able to deduct mortgage interest on the $70,000 over the calculated amount, plus the IRS may audit you.

Octomom Nadya Suleman May Not Be Able To Go Back To School

Nadya Suleman May Not Be Able To Go Back To School

Nadya Suleman has claimed from day one that she intended to go back to school and have friends and family take care of her fourteen children. She claimed that she needed to go back to school so that she could get a job to support her children.

Then Dr. Phil stepped in. He has helped Nadya to change her public image. She now has many more supporters including a group that will send 12 caretakers per shift to help Nadya with her children. Nadya is not exactly happy with having 12 people watching over her every move each day, but she really has no other choice. Also, she will need to be there doing her share. I am sure that this large group will leak out information to the press as to what goes on in the house. Nadya does not want to be under the microscope, no one does, but she must take the help or she could face losing her children.

Social services is already breathing down her neck. Although it is completely wrong for them to take these kids away, they will scrutinize her in every way they can. Thanks to Dr. Phil, Nadya now has a home to take her children too and a large group of people helping her.

Of course, she will also have to help out with her own children, which means the poor girl will not get to go back to college as she had planned.

American's Tire of Barack's Campaign Lies

American's Tire of Barack's Campaign Lies

As Barack Obama begins his third month in office, American's are finally starting to see that his campaign was full of lies. Just this month he passed a bill with 9,000 ear marks valued in the billions in quite a hurry. He did not even read the bill, I am not sure if anyone did.

He promised during his campaign that he would not allow ear marks, of which he has benefited from in the past in Chicago. The hospital that his wife worked for was given millions of dollars in ear marks. Now that he is in office he is continuing the practice and he has now changed his mind and decided that they are "necessary".

American's are not going to stand for this. His popularity is dropping every day.

He also said that he would not pass bills quickly. He promised that bills would be available for at least 5 days on the internet before being passed. But of course he had to break this promise also because if he did not we would have found out what was in the bill.

American's are tired of Barack's lies, let's hold him to his promises.

How to Detail a Car

How to Detail a Car

I love it when my car is show room clean. I wish I could keep it this way all the time, but I don't want to pay someone else to do it, not in this economy.

COMPLETE WASH - Get a big bucket of hot water and clean soft rags. Wash your car one section at a time and then thoroughly rinse each section and then move on.

COMPLETELY DRY - Use a chamois cloth to dry your car. Dry it before it starts to dry on its own. Towels are not recommended because they will leave lint every where.

VACUUM OUT INSIDE - First remove any of your personal belongings that may have built up. Then vacuum everything, paying attention to details like the space inbetween the seats and the space between the seats and the console.

FIRST WINDOW CLEANER - Use window cleaner on all windows inside and out. Also, use on lights.

TIRES - I love my tires to be shiny. Buy a tire cleaner and apply with a dry cloth to the black tire that faces you. Do not apply to the treads. RIMS - Use a chrome cleaner on your rims to make them glow!

DASH, VINYL & LEATHER - Buy individualized products for the interior of your car. The results will be worth it. I always use a special leather cream to keep my leather looking good.

Don't pay hundreds of dollars to get your car detailed when you can detail a car yourself in your own driveway.

Harvesting Rain Water is Illegal in Colorado

Harvesting Rain Water is Illegal in Colorado

It is absolutely amazing to me that it is illegal to harvest rain water in Colorado. Harvesting rain water means putting out a barrel or other container to collect rain water during the rainy season and then use it later in the year when water is scarce.

This practice has been going on since the beginning of mankind. Collecting water and then using it when they need it. It is unconscionable that this practice is illegal. It is even more shocking to hear that other states are thinking about the same law.

Once again our government is trying to take over and not allow us to take care of ourselves. We need to stand up against this kind of practice now before the liberal get too out of control.

Don't let this happen to you, oppose any legislation in your state that makes harvesting rain water illegal.

The Truth About Honey Bees

As you may know there has been something destroying our honey bees. This is happening worldwide and scientist now think that they know the virus that is causing the problem. Hopefully they will be able to correct the problem now that they now what is causing it.

Many people in the U.S. have been criticized when they had an infestation of bees and called the exterminators. Even the exterminators themselves have been criticized for destroying bees during this time when we have a shortage of bees. Because of these negative remarks I will set the record straight. Wild bees such as the ones that infest a home or business are not the same as farmed honey bees. Honey bee owners would not want nor would they take a hive of wild honey bees.

They would not want to mix the wild honey bees with their bees nor would they want to work with wild bees. So for everyone out there that has criticized an exterminator, why don't you find out the facts first.

Hopefully our honey bee populations will increase over time.

How to Keep Oil Prices Low

How to Keep Oil Prices Low

We have seen some huge spikes and dips in oil prices this year. Enough to keep my head spinning. Overall, the semi low prices are here and we should all work together to keep them that way until new energy sources appear.

KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK - Americans have significantly reduced the amount of gas they consume and it has really paid off, literally. Oil prices have dropped because foreign oil companies have realized that Americans do have the will power to "just say no to gas". I noticed it creeping up again in recent weeks, so lets stay dedicated to keep those prices down.

RIDE YOUR BIKE - Good for you, good for the environment and good for gas prices.

MASS TRANSIT - May be it is better than you thought. Instead of driving your boring car, now you can ride and read or talk on the phone. It makes me feel taken care of when someone else is driving me around and it is good for the environment.

KEEP ELECTRICITY USE LOW - Many electrical companies are run on gasoline, so if you are using electricity, you are essentially using gasoline. Try to keep your electricity low by turning off television sets and radios when you are actually in another room. Open your shades instead of turning on too many lights.

Everyone needs to do their part to keep oil prices low.

Is Geico The Cheapest Auto Insurance Available?

Is Geico The Cheapest Auto Insurance Available?

Not necessarily because an auto insurance quote is based upon your individual driving record, the type of car you have and how many miles you drive it. It may also take into account the other members of your household, such as your spouse or teen driver.

Although Geico is very cheap, I have found that the best rates are group rates. If you are employed at a company that offers car insurance as part of their human resources package for employees then you are set. You will get excellent coverage for the best rate. Plus they may just take the amount out of your check each month, so your coverage will never lapse and there is one less bill to pay.

If you do not have group coverage then Geico may be your next best choice. If you look around, you may find other companies that are slighly cheaper than Geico, but you get what you pay for. With Geico you will receive a low price policy backed by a great company. Remember to always compare auto insurance rates.

When you are looking for an auto insurance quote, make sure you include Geico in your search.

Excellent Time To Get Online Auto Insurance Quotes

If you are looking for an online auto insurance quote or policy this is the time to do it. Car insurance rates are very low right now and you can get locked into a great policy.

The best place to look for auto insurance is with your employer. The group plans through companies is definitely the best deal you will be able to find. You should find out all of the details from your human resources department before you begin check rates with other companies.

There are many online resources for comparing auto insurance. Places such as esurance and progressive will give you rates from multiple companies. You may also want to check directly with geico, allstate and more.

If you already have insurance for your home, life or health, you may want to check with the companies that already insure you because sometimes they can offer you excellent discounts for holding multiple policies with them.

When you begin researching rates for your new auto insurance, don't forget to get multiple quotes based upon different deductibles and coverage. You may find that raising your deductible may give you a better monthly premium. Make sure you get the amount of coverage required by your state for auto insurance policies. Online auto insurance quotes are so fast and easy to get you have no reason not to get started today.

13 Bodies Found in the Desert of Albuquerque

Cold cases are being reopened in Albuquerque, New Mexico this week as investigators found the bones of 13 bodies buried in the desert. It is very rare to find so many bodies buried in one place. Some of the cold cases are over 20 years old.
The remains of two victims have been identified, Gina Michelle Valdez and Victoria Chavez.
Our world is not as safe as we pretend it is each day. Even adults are at risk of being kidnapped and killed. Watch your children and do not go down dark alleys at night.
It is time we take control back of our world and put these sickos in jail.

Casey Anthony Trial Date Set

Casey Anthony Trial Date Set

Although Casey Anthony has been rightfully tried by the media and the public, she still deserves a trial under our system. Her trial date has been set to October 12, 2009.

The case does not look good for her. It looks even worse for her dead daughter. I still cannot wrap my head around the bits and pieces of facts that we have right now.

I just cannot fathom someone planning to kill a precious little girl such as Caylee. Why couldn't she just leave her with her parents? Did she have life insurance on her? I just do not get it.

It makes more sense to me that she killed her accidentally, but I do not know all the facts that the police know.

I also wonder why the grandparents did not grill Casey earlier about where Caylee was at. The little girl lived with them and they did not see her for 31 days. My mom does not even live with me, but if she did not see her grand children in 31 days, I can imagine what she would be saying to me.

I guess we will find out all of the details eventually. One thing I know for sure is that Casey Anthony will never admit to anything.
