I love trivia! Do you? And what better subject than BACON! Perhaps all you know about bacon is that it is a meat product prepared from a pig and it goes with just about anything! We will get to some bacony combinations (usual and unusual) later but right now let's take a walk down history lane and when, where, how this succulent meat found its way to the table, especially America's breakfast table.
The story begins in the early 1950's suburbs of Houston, Texas. Mamie is a young child of four who was unwanted, afraid, abused and with nowhere to turn, learned that she had to stand alone. Her only friends were her older brother, an abused child himself, and her nanny, who begged their mother to stop beating them. The father, though he loved his children, remained passive to the end. A victim himself, the only protection he offered was a warning to stay out of their mother's reach.
Mamie, the main character in this story draws you close to her dreams and hopes as she suffers the neglect and abuse from her mother. A young girl who spends her entire life searching . . . no, pleading for her mother’s love and approval, but instead receives only physical, mental, and emotional abuse in return. This unsettling tale is more a story of hope as Mamie’s fighting spirit leaves the reader in awe at the young girl who comes to life on the tear-stained pages."
Whistleblower Fiona Barnett writes about her experience before the the Royal Commission into Child Sexual Abuse and her concerns regarding its future.
Rosemary J. Adkins's insight:
Abuse has no boundaries and effects all classes, races and descriminates against no one. Help us stop the insanity of Abuse please. Support the charities that help the victims of abuse-Ask me who and how.
"We’ve all been there before: staring at the glow of your blank computer screen with no idea on how to open or start your talk. For starters, you should never be staring at PowerPoint with no clear objective (that’s a conversation for another day), but let’s be honest, we’ve all struggled with the best ways to open a presentation."
A jury last month convicted Chritton of child neglect but deadlocked on counts of reckless endangerment, causing mental harm to a child, child abuse and false imprisonment. Prosecutors say they plan .....

What exactly is the truth-Child Abuse or Neglect? Starvation, denial or refusal? What do you think? @childabusestory
Close your eyes tonight…speak to whatever Higher Power you believe in, and pray for Boston. Pray for the eight year old little boy that died yesterday along with two others. Pray for the families of those that lost their lives. Pray for the wounded both in body and in spirit. Pray for our great nation and about the grave danger we face. Pray for our world…for peace and tolerance.
Tonight, with a heavy heart, I will pray not only for Boston…but for you! I wish you all peace and safety in this crazy world of ours.
Our Nation under God yet there are those that challenge the very existence of our freedom and love of one another. These cowards that take from all of us will some day face their own sins. Please if anyone knows who is responsible, come forward and save our nation from further grief from terrorst no matter if from afar or from home. Justice needs to be heard.
Happy New Year's Day, everyone! It has been nearly a year since the release of my book, Awakenings from Then 'til Now. You might ask "What is Awakenings about?" I would answer "What does it mean to be an American?"
Awakenings allows you to embark on a journey spanning five centuries of America's awakening that identifies who you are and ultimately defines your future. It provides a manner to seek understanding through inspiring quotes from influential men and women in history as well as poetry.
2013 has certainly had its share of ups and downs. But, of course, those are all a part of life. With every touch of happiness often comes a bittersweet sorrow. Even within those times where the tomorrows shed little light, a ray of hope always seems to be found: The promise of better days ahead.
