My Father

April 14th, 2013

If you have read my profile on FAA, you already know that my father was a musician. He recently recorded a new song after reuniting him with an old friend, Tim Coons (producer of the Backstreet Boys), and who sung on my father's first American album.

I hope the attached link works, I am sharing his latest song. It is quite beautiful.

Each "LIKE" HONORS ALL of his victims, (and know there were many) each "LIKE" brings us one step closer to finding justice for ALL of them not just our friend Friends-of Michelle Lynn Jones and her Aunt Teri Helfrich Brandt!

Please also take a moment to visit the Michelle Lynn Jones Foundation website to learn more http://www.mlj-foundation.org/ - a foundation to promote personal safety by raising public awareness about invisible criminals in our communities, help us change some laws, to make our communities a safer place!

Here is the review from N.Y times bestselling author:
"There is nothing more terrifying than considering that a friendly neighbor is in fact a bloodthirsty serial killer. After reading the dogged journalism undertaken by Diana Montane and Sean Robbins about a man who killed dozens of people - starting with his own pregnant mother - in "The Invisible Killer: The Monster Behind the Mask" you will never trust any seemingly kind strangers quite the same way again."
Michele McPhee, New York Times Best-Selling author of A Date With Death.

I am posting this due to the importance of exposing real criminals in our community... this book hit home and if at all possible, I don't ever want it to hit another home again!!!!

A Thousand Words

March 28th, 2013

A Thousand Words

It has been said that a picture speaks a thousand words, in this case, this picture shows at the time over 1 million had been served and as of April 10, 2010, 1,264,564,043+ 245,359,187,809 = 246,623,751,852 Which Rounds to 247 Billion Sold.... as of June 2012, there are now more than 33,000 restaurants around the world in 118 countries. This one, original locations of the "Golden Arches" has obviously multiplied many times over. Who would have ever imagined.

One our way back from a trip to Lake Tahoe, I begged my boyfriend to stop at this historical location. This was Americana, this I had to see for myself, and so he agreed. Now a museum and "grave yard" store for all of the memoriblia, toys, signs, and former advertisemtents for McDonalds, walking was quite an odd experience, but one I am glad to have checked off of the bottom of my bucket list!

The business began in 1940, with a restaurant opened by brothers Richard and Maurice McDonald at 1398 North E Street at West 14th Street in San Bernardino, California (at 34.1255N 117.2946W). Their introduction of the "Speedee Service System" in 1948 furthered the principles of the modern fast-food restaurant that the White Castle hamburger chain had already put into practice more than two decades earlier. The original mascot of McDonald's was a man with a chef's hat on top of a hamburger shaped head whose name was "Speedee". for more information: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/McDonald%27s

Saying Goodbye

March 25th, 2013

Saying Goodbye

To some a picture speaks a thousand words, to others, they feel those words as pain in their hearts as they say farewell to their loved ones being deployed; and soldiers, standing proud and staying strong, hiding the pain they feel saying farewell to family, friends and their loyal pets. Today my friend Dawn said goodbye to her daughter, Rachael, who is being deployed to Afghanistan... I am sharing Dawn's image as I think it speak louder than anyone of us ever could!

BEST WISHES TO THE MOST BEAUTIFUL SOLDIER THIS COUNTRY HAS!!! We love you Rachael, and Thank you!!!
