Wednesday Night at Memories

Wednesday Night at Memories

This is a shot of my Wednesday night gig at Memories in Second Life.  It’s a new club Second Life but as you can see it’s already quite lively. Memories plays Classic Rock/Pop Music of the 60s-90s and there are some Love Song sets to also enjoy as a couple. It is the creation of friends BigEvilDude Forder and Lisa Petrolhead.

We have been having some good times there enjoying music together while we dance and chat about issues of the day.  Great place to unwind at the end of a busy day without needing a baby sitter!  If you are in Second Life, stop by and see us, the schedule of DJs and their hosts is on the wall in the club.  Join the group to receive notices of events. Currently hiring more staff, contact BigEvilDude Forder or Lisa Petrolhead in Second Life for an application. Memories in Second Life

To George and Shelly Zimmerman

Yeah, I read the transcripts of your jail conversations.  You knew they were being recorded so I didn’t feel like I was easedropping on something very private.  What really gets me beyond the fact that anyone would give you two money is…why fraud?  Think about it.  Folks are nice enough to part with some cash for you because they think you need it for legal defense.  Do you spend it on that?  Nooooo.. instead it’s a great time to pay off all your credit card bills, a loan you had from the parents, Shelly’s school bills, hide some cash in some relatives accounts…anything BUT what you told people you needed the money for.  Where I come from Z’s this is called fraud! Legally wrong…morally wrong..just plain WRONG!

That recording before each call the two of you had that warned you that the calls would be recorded wasn’t a big enough clue?  So now Shelly might end up with a felony which is really going to mess up her plans to be a nurse.  So very hard to be a nurse as a felon!  This also makes it harder and harder to believe anything you say George.  The different stories told about what happened to you are far fetched enough.  Saying at your bond hearing that you didn’t know Trayvon was a kid yet forgetting you told the dispatcher in the 911 call he was a black teen.  With you as the best witness as to what really happened…we need the TRUTH from you and it’s not there.  The Martins need the truth, parents across the country now worried that there might be more like you out there with guns hunting our teenagers want to hear what really happened.  Be clean with us George and Shelly.

If you didn’t need the money for legal defense like you asked for it for.  The right thing would have been to give it back if you could.  If not, donate it to a charity, thank your donators and let them know some good came from the fund.  That’s what I would do.  You didn’t win the lottery…you shouldn’t be profiting from a very sad situation.  Do the right thing!

Regarding the Zimmerman/Martin Case

Lots more was released on this case including police reports and the autopsy report along with misc like the evidence list or log.  Been combing through these as this case has been interesting to me because my son Dan will be 17 in July and often takes a walk before bed as he claims it helps him to sleep.  He’s also exercising a leg that has an issue which is helped by his exercise.  Very easily it could have been my child shot that night.  I’ve been haunted since hearing the screaming on the 9/11 call that is obviously not from an adult but from a frightened kid instead.  It’s that killing a rabbit death scream that is one of the worst things to ever hear. 

I also caught the transcripts of the jail conversations between the Zimmermans. Shame on those two collecting money from people for a “Defense Fund” that is actually being used to pay off credit cards and hidden away in relatives bank accounts.  They sounded like mafia dividing up loot or lottery winner that for some reason had to make their winnings suddenly all gone.  Meanwhile, Shelly Zimmerman is telling the judge that they are broke so George can get a lower bond.  George’s credibility is shot in my view. Don’t even think he should have been carrying a gun at all considering the medications he was on to treat anxiety. These medications could be a reason George was accepted into the police academy but didn’t finish it.  We got to see his application and that it was accepted at one point but there was no mention that he had graduated or why not.  Could still be other reasons but considering the side effects of his medication…George with a gun was dangerous.  Some other tidbits below:

Tapes of a witness of what happened that night, were played on democracynow.org

WITNESS 2: “I mean that little kid was so skinny compared to him”.

POLICE: “Exactly, yeah, that’s the impression that we all got”.

WITNESS 2: “And I can tell you there was no fighting going on at the time that the gun went off. Because we were both in the kitchen making coffee, the window was open, there was no fighting. And the fight that happened started way down the sidewalk, because the person on the very end of this block is the one who called the police originally because the fight broke out. Now the kid got shot way down here, you know, five doors down. I know they were not physically fighting at the time that gun went off, when we heard the shot, and the kid hit the ground”.

The autopsy report listed Martin at 5’11 and 158 lbs. and none of the police believed that a 200 lb. Zimmerman was afraid of being beaten to death by him. Trayvon Martin was shot 70 yards. from were he was staying. Does 70 yards. from a persons domicile satisfy those that say ,” he should have ran home”, and does shooting a skinny kid after a fight represent, “Self-Defense”?

Apparently, there is a photo of Trayvon Martin being circulated via conservative web sites that shows a picture with tattoos on his face and neck.  This is NOT a picture of Trayvon as the autopsy report shows the presence of only 2 small tattoos one on the upper arm and another on the inside of his wrist.  If you see this picture circulated, know it is mere disrespect for the dead…not an actual picture of Trayvon.  There would be no reason to lie on an autopsy report in regard to the amount of tattoos and where they were located.  Think about it…

PD Video of George Zimmerman with NO Injuries

Remember how we were told George Zimmerman had a broken nose and an injury to the back of the head in the Trayvon Martin case? Watch this video and look for those injuries he claimed to have. Notice the total lack of blood…

I’ve been following this case closely because I am the mother of a 16 year old who owns not one but four hoodies. Dan always takes a walk before bed as he feels the exercise helps him sleep. Could have been mine shot as the laws are now the same thanks to the Republicans that pushed this shoot first ask questions later law on us.

Beware of Chinese Pet Treats

Pet treats made in China have been causing health issues since 2007 and still have not been recalled.  What can you do?  Look closely at the labels if it says “Made in China”, “Made in ROC” or doesn’t list a country of origin it is safer not to buy.  You can Google for recipes to make you own treats which is cheaper and safer or look for products not made in China.  Here is yet another story on this subject…

There have also been reports in the past of poison in pet food and in baby formula made in China.  Better to be safe than sorry.
