    Recently, at the Southwest National Primate Research Center,( http://snprc.org/ ) located in San Antonio Texas, 4 Baboons escaped. The facility holds over 1000 Baboons and these 4 were a part of a group of 133 males not being used for testing. There are walls that fold inward so the baboons can’t jump out; But these 4 clever Baboons rolled a 55 gallon barrel (filled with grains), climbed on top and got out over the wall and pass the fence.

    The researchers however, quickly was aware, chased the Baboons, caught them and safely returned them to the enclosure. Many on social media felt like the Baboons were tired of being subjected to medical experiments, and was hoping the escapees weren’t found., however, in less than an hour 3 baboons were found-the 4th not long after on his own.

    People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (aka PETA https://www.peta.org/ ), has found that since 2011, The US Dept. of Agriculture (https://www.usda.gov/ ) has cited the SNPRC many times for “animal welfare related issues” which included deaths from adults to a baby Baboon.

    Hopefully, the Baboons and all animals for that matter, held in this place or anywhere in the world where they aren’t free, handlers will ensure love, comfort and safety.

  • 911 Uber App?

    Posted on by admin

    Billions of people use and rely on Uber. I have never used Uber and have always for some reason been hesitant and this story didn’t help any.

    Uber recently announced adding a panic button to the app in case of emergency, where riders can easily contact 911. A university law professor of Denver, Nancy Leong, used an Uber for a ride to the airport. However, the driver said he was, “taking her to a hotel” instead! Leong said the Uber driver would not unlock the doors despite her yelling demands for him to do so. She banged on the window and luckily, caught the attention of some construction workers. The Uber driver finally unlocked the doors but also got out of the car and walked towards Leong! Thankfully, the car began to roll (the brakes weren’t on) and the Uber driver got back in the car then got away.

    The driver (who Leong stated did not look like the picture in the Uber App), has been suspended.

    Uber is teaming with Rapid SOS, a tech-emergency response, https://rapidsos.com/ . Denver will be the first to acces this app this summer. This will connect the passenger to an emergency dispatcher and the location of the Uber driver will show.

    According to the Denver post, last year the Denver Colorado Public Utilities Commission hit Uber with a 8.9 million dollar fine because over 50 Uber drivers with felony records or vehicle offenses were hired. This only solidifies my concern with Uber and why I still prefer Cabs!

  • Hold on! They’re Back! :)

    One of the best female singing group of all time. En Vogue are reunited..and I couldn’t be happier!!

    This union includes original members Cindy Herron-Braggs, Terry Ellis (my personal fave) and a new addition, Rhona Bennett. (the original members were Cindy H.B, Terry E., Dawn Robinson and Maxine Jones).

    Their single Rocket, from their new album, (Electric Cafe’) made the top 10 on the Billboard Charts. Between 1997 and 2001, original En Vogue members Dawn Robinson and Maxine Jones left the group, word is because of “contract issues”- however, Herron-Braggs and Ellis stuck together. Newest member Rhona has been with En Vogue during the last 14 years, is a former Mouseketeer (member of Disney Mickey Mouse club).

    Look for En Vogue to tour May/June with musical legends Keith Sweat and SWV.

  • Blue’s Clues Return

    Here’s the mail, it never fails.
    It makes me want to wag my tail.
    When it comes I want to wail…MAILLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!

    My email ringtone. I was a big fan of the show…I’m talking before I even had children. I even have a Blue’s Clues teddy bear that barks when you squeeze his paw.

    While Blue, the puppy was adorable, what made the show for me, was Steve…played by Steve Burns. He was cute, and had a child-like quality from his voice to his mannerisms. Steve left in 2002, (the show started in 1996) and was replaced by Donovan Patton, who did OK, but didn’t grab my attention like Steve, which made me stop watching. By this time, I had a two year old daughter who was alright with the switch and continued watching. Some sources say Steve left to pursue music, while others claimed he left because he was aging. According to Huffington Post, Steven actually did leave because he was aging, and going bald;
    โ€œI left the show because it was just simply time to go. I was pretty much playing a boyish, older-brotherish kind of character on the show. I was getting older; I was losing my hair; a lot of the original gangsters on the show, like the people who created it, were all moving on to other careers. It just felt like time. I just had a gut feeling like it was time to go,โ€ said Burns. (Huffington Post)

    There is talk Blue’s Clues will return, possibly with a female hosting the show. While I’m all for a woman being in this position, I’d love to see Steve Burns come back :).

  • Matters Of The Heart

    ABC’s The Bachelor seems like just another scripted reality show that I do not watch, however, I almost always tune into the finale’-which also often comes off as scripted, but very entertaining.

    Arie (The Bachelor) chose Becca and proposed-instead of choosing Lauren, who I thought was the obvious choice. The dramatic part came when Arie decided to change his mind…break up with Becca and choose Lauren (if she will still have him). The cameras never stopped rolling as Arie made the dramatic switch, which caused him to not only become heart breaker of the year to Becca, social media went off on him as well. In spite of that, I understood and agreed with his decision.

    Don’t get me wrong, if Arie had doubts or wasn’t sure, he should not have proposed. However, I am a firm believer in not settling and following your heart. If he had stayed with his decision, he always be one foot in, one foot out-consistently dreaming of what ‘might have been’. Would you want someone to stay with you, knowing they are in love with someone else? How can you be intimate and lay and wake up with someone who is not 100%-even 90% into you?

    Still, there are two more sides to this story…how and when do you confess to Becca-that you made a mistake?! There’s no easy way to break news such as this. Arie is going to devastate her no matter how gentle or kind he says it. Then there’s Lauren. Will she even take him back after he didn’t choose her in the first place, live on national television?? That is the risk Arie decided to take..and I can’t say I would not have done the same.

    Always, follow your heart and desires, I am known for quoting “This isn’t dress rehearsal”-we only get one time, “one shot” as Eminem would say. Many may not agree and certainly did NOT agree with Arie’s decision, but let’s not forget, he has to do what’s best for him…even if risking it all means he winds up alone.

    There is a silver lining; The Bachelor always chooses a woman for their sister reality show, The Bachelorette. It was no surprise Becca will be the chosen one, which is great because she has another chance at love. She will then be in the same position Arie once was and may find out,it not as easy as it looks. When we date, some of us choose one mate at a time while others may date up to three, but how many of us get to stand outside in a beautiful yard, and watch sexy, handsome and beautiful mate after mate hop out of a limo, all wanting to please us?

    By the way, lauren did take Arie back and so far, they are still going strong (Arie proposed to Lauren During The Bachelor finale’).Welp, as the saying goes, “All is far in love and war.”

    The next season of The Bachelorette airs on ABC, May 28th.

  • Trump …smh

    Remember when you were a kid, and someone in your class had candy? Instead of passing it out to whoever they wanted to give the candy to, they would throw it in the air and whoever caught it got to keep it? Well I was one of those kids that NEVER went in the crowd to try and “catch” the candy. I always felt like if you wanted me to have it, you would personally give it to me. I have always hated they way the kids looked – jumping on each other to get a piece and seeing the mayhem when a few went for the same piece of candy. I would also shake my head when I saw the disappointment on the faces of the kids that did not catch anything.

    Seeing Donald Trump throw the supplies to the people of Puerto Rico was not only humiliating, but disrespectful, ignorant and very, very unpresidential!! I wish no one tried to catch anything he threw out in the crowd..what was wrong with passing the supplies out like you are supposed to as any decent human being would? Oh that’s right, silly me,…we don’t have a decent President.

    I have been to many weddings and never got up during the ceremony when the bride,”throws the bouquet”; I do not attempt to catch those either.
    There’s just something about standing in a crowd and scrambling, bumping and shoving folk to catch anything other than a football or basketball, bothers me.

  • The Switch

    I will never understand why people feel the need to tell U how U need 2 be.
    If I’m not good enough as I am….why not find what “suits” U.
    How was it ok at 1 time…but now it is not.
    I do not bother anyone…let me B me.

    The minute U do as the other pressures U 2 do..they’ll complain about that 2.
    Don’t preach 1 lesson, but live another..then attack others because U unhappy with yourself.
    Let me B me.

    I will never understand how Monday I’m perfect just they way I am….but Thursday U have issue with it.
    Don’t throw darts if U aren’t willing 2 catch any back.
    I’m sure there R others like U…so choose them. Not opposite of U and complain.

    They do dirt…but pick on U because…U…don’t do the crap they do 2 U?? Guilt maybe?

    Respect goes both ways. Life is 2 short. Let the person B…or leave them alone. Always remember.. They existed B4 U came along….n someone loved them…just as they R.

    Simple right?
    I think so 2.

  • World’s Worst Mom

    angry b
    Have you ever felt like the worst mommy or daddy in the world? Well, Friday was my day.

    My 5 year old son MJ is in Kindergarten. Every morning I walk him to school and take his hat (his favorite red Angry Birds hat), thinking I’m helping him with ‘one less thing to worry about/keep track of’. So, the routine is, walk MJ to school, give him a kiss, a hug, tell him I love him & have a good day, take his hat, put it in my pocket, watch him go up the steps and enter the auditorium. When it’s time to pick MJ up, I bring his hat with me, he puts it on and we go home…I have been doing this routine all Winter, simple right?

    Friday morning was like any other morning, except about 20 minutes or so when I returned home after dropping him off, I realized MJ’s favorite Angry Birds hat was GONE!!! I frantically looked around, checked my coat pockets, the floor…no hat!! I felt a terrible sinking feeling in my stomach when I realized I must have dropped his hat on the way home when I dug in my pocket to get out my phone to check the time :(. Did I mention this is his FAVORITE hat??
    I grabbed my keys and without my jacket, ran back outside, down the drive way, retracing my steps back to MJ’s school. I found nothing!! I had to have dropped it in the school yard, and I’m sure some kid picked it up and no doubt kept it as their own..I started to run in the school and yell,
    “Hey! anyone find a Angry Birds hat this morning?” But I didn’t. I took it as a loss and walked back home..almost in tears thinking about me telling MJ that I lost his favorite hat…me, the one who takes it from him to keep it safe. Yes he has other hats, but this was the hat. His favorite ๐Ÿ™ .

    So, I pick him up, with his black Philadelphia Phillies hat (with the red “P” logo), uneasy about telling MJ I lost his hat, his favorite Angry Birds hat. He runs to me with a smile and I cringe inside. After we hug I tell him how I lost his hat and tried to look for it, while putting his Phillies hat on. Mj looked at me and said,
    “That’s OK Mom.” and said nothing else about it-so far.

    …..and the award for worst Mom goes to……..
    worst mom

  • Kanye West Very Sane

    I always and still think Kanye West is an attention whore. He says just about anything for attention to keep his name in our mouths and stay relevant. His many outbursts in public lately seemed not much different.

    When I first saw Kanye West’s infamous ‘breakdown video’, I thought like many others “this guy has lost it!”
    However, the more I listened to what he was saying, the more it sounded like a cry for help and just being tired of it all..wanting to express what was REALLY going on-behind the glitz and glam. Some call it Illuminati-(the Elite in control of Hollywood and Entertainment)..selling your soul to “the devil” for fortune and fame…and if you speak against it, you either appear crazy (Dave Chapelle…Katt Williams) or die as a ‘Sacrifice’ (Michael Jackson). It (the Illuminati) can be pretty trippy once you research it and watch enough video with theories that eerily and very often makes sense.
    I’m basically saying, Kanye may be speaking against whatever been going on…crying for help. Not crazy or tripping because his mom is gone. After Kanye’s rant, he was admitted to the hospital. Some report in the psyche ward, others dispute that claim and say he is NOT being held against his will, however he is getting mental health treatment. I’m starting to think ‘they” (whoever they are) are trying to keep him quiet.

    Kanye West and Kim Kardashian
    2016 MTV VMA’s at Madison Square Garden – White Carpet Arrivals, New York, USA – 28 Aug 2016

    Does being with Kim Kardashian or any Kardashian for that matter, has anything to do with it? After all, just about all of the men that get involved with this family either suffer career, mental and/or health wise…….

    Regardless, I think Kanye West makes great music and hopefully whatever is going on, is worked out soon.
