I always like to dig into the history of a celebration, or special day. Father's Day has been celebrated for over 4000 years. The celebrating of Father's Day can be traced back to Babylon, where a card was found in the ruins of Babylon.

"They have recorded that a young boy called Elmesu carved a Father's Day message on a card made out of clay nearly 4,000 years ago. Elmesu wished his Babylonian father good health and a long life. "

Wasn't that a nice story? I'm sure there are many more stories about fathers and sons or daughters. I like to think that I have a wonderful story that has transpired with my father. Actually, I have 3 fathers. My Heavenly Father who found my Dad for me many years ago. I was adopted by my dad when I was a year old. He raised my brother, David, along with me, and another brother (Allen) who my mother and dad took in when he was older. We were very lucky to have found a good home. I also have a biological father, who I met once, but haven't seen since. (As I have reported before, I have found many biological members of my first family.)

Anyway...I pay tribute to my Heavenly Father today...for his everlasting love to me and to all mankind. I pay tribute to my dad, who raised me, and whom I shall always call, "Daddy". I love him dearly, as you know...and talk about him in a lot of my posts. He's elderly, and I treasure the time I spend with him. I make every moment count. I hope you will with your father, also.

Hot tamales today!

Oh good grief it's HOT!!! Hot everywhere you go..and HOT in politics. I've been having some fun looking up some new news stories. I will post later on this afternoon....taking a small break from coming in from town. IT WAS OUTRAGEOUSLY HOT...I think I'm going to track down Ashley McDonald and have her bring in some cooler weather. Ever since the new girl took over for Ashley, it's been too hot for words. (Not her fault...though). I'm thinking of moving to the NORTH POLE...The older I get...the hotter it gets, and I'm getting TOO OLD for this s***. I'm ready for the 40s at night, and 70 in the daytime. Is that too much to ask??? I think NOT. Here are some pictures for your enjoyment...

Hey readers...I still have my Ron Sparks Matches and Fan from his last campaign. Whohoo!! Ron...light a fire under those others' butts.


I have been doing my homework on the Democrat candidates for Governor, and have decided to throw my vote in for RON SPARKS. He is the most qualified, in my opinion, ...FOR GOVERNOR. Ron has served us very well as Commissioner of Agriculture for several years, now. Ron worked hard to make sure our food supply was safe. Ron also rallied to get sugar sodas out of the schools. He struggled to get dietary and low calorie drinks in the system for our children. He is STILL working hard for us. I also personally met Ron on the campaign trail in 2006, and feel he is the better choice.

I also met Artur Davis at the Alabama Democratic Conference for candidates in 2006. He seemed to be a well polished individual and well spoken. However, after I heard that he had accepted a large donation from Republican Bill Canary, I searched in another direction, FOR SURE. The fact that he has distanced himself from former Governor, Don Siegelman, ...well, you know the old saying, YOU DON'T KICK A FRIEND, WHEN THEY ARE DOWN. I have supported Don Siegelman all along, and still do. I consider him a great friend, and even corresponded with him while he was in prison. IF Don would run for governor, again, he would have my vote over ANYONE. I feel that he truly worked hard throughout his entire career as a public servant to keep the best interest of the citizen in the forefront.

I also met Sue Bell Cobb, on the campaign trail, when we were both campaigning. I happened to run into her at a rally in Birmingham, on a park trail. Ha! Even gave her my literature. Fancy that. Wasn't impressed then, and haven't been impressed, since.

Are Sue Bell Cobb's Employees Searching For Other Work?

Lots of interesting rumors running around. Doc's Political Parlor usually has the most updated news on politics. I enjoy reading Danny's site.

Here is another link to news on Sue Bell Cobb.

Another link on the possibility of Sue running for Governor.

OK...OK...enough already about Sue Bell Cobb. Now, on to other news...

Millbrook Police Resigns...After Alleged Complaints

I actually know the woman in the picture...Kelli Harris. Good woman...used to work for Bob Martin and Trey Norman. It's a horrible thing to happen to a private citizen. (the beating Kelli received by Officer Ron Davis). I wrote about this incident that happened to Kelli, last year. I'm glad she was able to get a settlement in this case. MORE WOMEN who are abused need to come forward. This is the exact kind of case I am talking about...that leads citizens to LIVE IN FEAR of law enforcement officers. The bad apples make it hard for us to believe in the good officers. I KNOW there are good ones out there...If you know of a good police officer, state trooper, or deputy, PLEASE...for the good of all of our readers, please post a comment to their benefit.


I am SO TIRED of public officials using different branches of Government as STEPPING STONES to further their career. We all know how hard Sue Bell Cobb fought to become Chief Justice of Alabama. "This Little Light of Mine"...told me so! Now she is considering the Governor candidacy? Susan Parker did the very same thing, as well. She won the State PSC race, and then the very next thing you know, she was considering a race for United States Congress (before her PSC term was expired).

The Judicial System is STILL as crooked as it was, since SUE took office. SUSAN has not changed the Public Service Commission, as far as rates are concerned for private citizens. THEY HAVE GONE UP WITH ALABAMA POWER!!

I would like to see some of these candidates make PROGRESS with the positions they are in, before they choose to further their careers and move on to another position. Alabamians deserve better!

If Sue Bell Cobb really wanted to do something to improve Alabama's future...she is definitely in the position to do so, at the present time, as Chief Justice of Alabama. As bad as things are in Alabama, our COURT SYSTEM seems to be at the bottom of the barrel, although our JUDGES are some of the highest paid in the nation. POVERTY is at a high level in Alabama, YET...Judges seem to be faring WELL. What's wrong with this picture??? This is a FAMILIAR too common. This is the same thing that our last Chief Justice (Roy Moore) did. He used the 10 Commandments and Sue Bell uses the "children". For God's sake, Sue Bell, fix the Judicial System!! Then...look for another career. preferably one outside of the court system. (and you know what I'm talking about)!! You big tub of lard!!

"Lawyers should never ask a Mississippi grandma a question if they aren't prepared for the answer.

In a trial, a Southern small-town prosecuting attorney called his first witness, a grandmotherly, elderly woman to the stand. He approached her and asked, 'Mrs. Jones, do you know me?' She responded, 'Why yes, I do know you. Mr. Williams. I've known you since you were a boy, and frankly, you've been a big disappointment to me. You lie, you cheat on your wife, and you manipulate people and talk about them behind their backs. You think you're a big shot when you haven't the brains to realize you'll never amount to anything more than a two-bit paper pusher. Yes, I know you.'

The lawyer was stunned. Not knowing what else to do, he pointed across the room and asked, 'Mrs. Jones, do you know the defense attorney?'

She again replied, 'Why yes, I do. I've known Mr. Bradley since he was a youngster, too. He's lazy, bigoted, and he has a drinking problem. He can't build a normal relationship with anyone, and his law practice is one of the worst in the entire state. Not to mention he cheated on his wife with three different women. One of them was your wife. Yes, I know him.'

The defense attorney nearly died.

The Judge asked both counselors to approach the bench and, in a very quiet voice, said, 'If either of you idiots ask her if she knows me, I'll send you both to the electric chair.'"

******Note to all attorneys...GOOD ADVICE!! LOL!
(This was sent to me by my good friend, Brandy Knight).

I really enjoyed watching Chuck Norris on Walker Texas Ranger. I really enjoyed Chuck Norris standing with Mike Huckabee in his run for President. HOWEVER,.....I DO NOT WANT TO SEE HIM SUPPORTING ROY MOORE. I believe that I made my point about former Chief Justice Roy Moore, back when the 10 Commandment Rallies were going on. I attended most of them, and took my protest signs. NOT protesting the 10 Commandments...but protesting the fact that Roy Moore could rule in favor of another judge and a sheriff committing perjury in court. Perjury, is another form of BEARING FALSE WITNESS...and Roy Moore cannot have it both ways. Either he believes in justice for those who have Writs of Certiorari pass through his court, or he doesn't believe in justice. I believe that I am going to have some fun with this next Governor's race. I met several of the candidates in the last Governor's race and have remained friends with Nathan Mathis, Harry Lyons, and Loretta Nall.

So I say, Bring it on...Ole Roy. I'm ready for this next election. I'll give you some free space on my site to make things right...(Don't forget when my friend Darren Obrien & I picketed the Supreme Court in 2002 when we were both running for sheriff. ) (Darren for Elmore County Sheriff, and me for Autauga County Sheriff)...that reminds me HERBIE'S RACE IS COMING UP AGAIN IN 2010. ALRIGHTY THEN....let the games begin!!!!

The Fourth of July is almost here. I hope you will take time to reflect on and remember our brave soldiers...both men and women, who have bravely fought and paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. As we watch the fireworks on July 4th, may we remember the love they had for the United States of America. God Bless their bravery!!



This case from Los Angeles is absolutely horrifying to me, and I can't stand the thought of having family member's bodies lying on a slab, as a cadaver in the first place! As a high schooler in Virginia, we attended a cadaver's lesson at James Madison University. That was strange to me, and I never forgot it. A couple of years ago, one of my aunts passed away and donated her body to science, to help others. That was noble of her, but I would most certainly be ANGRY if I found out her body had been abused for someone's business adventure. Read the following story, and I'm sure you will feel the anger as well. (and rightfully so!)

Here's another story about a vacant funeral home, and bodies left behind.

And the last case I am posting, is an old case, but I know you all will remember it. Ray Brent Marsh operated the Tri State Crematory in Noble, Georgia and many bodies were not buried, but laying in the back yard, etc. Also, some individuals were receiving what they thought were "remains" of their loved ones, but in fact, was concrete and dirt.,2933,46109,00.html
