Forever Michael


Legacy - I'll always remember Michael Jackson some of my best musical moments was the luxury of his bangers in the backdrop of my life.  Some say zany and 'Off The Wall' but he was a 'Thriller' until the end.


Fleeting moments of his greatness is his legacy.  Mystery exists, the music speaks, its forever etched in our hearts and souls. Often misunderstood, so many questions left unanswered, he give his life for his art, that was the love that he had to give.  Often judged, he gave freely, with compassion and unconditional love.  From start to finish, he accepted the beginning, middle and the untimely end.  That smile, That Voice, That mind ... all things Genius!!! Only one Michael Jackson and in his own words truly 'Gone Too Soon!

Happy Birthday


Mijac forever missing you. HBDay 59

Doping Sharapova


Halep is letting the D O P E R (Maria Sharapova) handle her.  Is this white prestige at the US OPEN? Even though she Is RUSSIAN.  They NYC city crowd is cheering her on, like she's Effin royalty.  I don't get it.  If it were Venus or Serena caught doping, it would be titles stripped, banned for life and $$$ returned.  #ThisisMADNESS



Moss Lake Village Modern Day Slavery


In the town of Sulphur, La.  The concept was in play to house over 1900, plant workers.  Seemingly elegant living to the tune of 2100.00 dollars a month.  Poorly ran management and horrific House Keeping.  Then you have pedifiles drug dealers ex convicts and undercover Klansmen.  Food is average and overcooked and then let's talk ANTS everyday.  You can only have one visitor per your stay, very similar to prison life.  Project Manager and his assistants feeble in pursuits of their title, lastly the less than stellar Security manager, who is ran by a Moose.  
Three different companies in one, ran on deception and lies.  White folks leading, while Latino Philipino and Blacks take the seats in the back. Not the ideal situations especially paying 2100.00 a mont.  Where can I sign up for a refund?

Aretha's Club


Lights - All Hail The Queen ... Aretha Franklin has her sights set on nightlife. Reportedly, the ‘Queen of Soul’ is planning to move back to her hometown of Detroit and open a nightclub. The 75-year-old singer currently lives in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. Aretha, who announced earlier this year that she’s retiring, says of her latest venture,


"I’m interested in doing a small nightclub downtown, and he (Bruce Schwartz, Detroit relocation ambassador for Bedrock Real Estate Services) and I have been talking about this for a couple of years now and I’m just letting him know I’m still interested. In my retirement plan, I’d like to have a small club here in Detroit."


She already has a name picked out "It would be Aretha’s!"


She continues,"From time to time I would sing, and of course, I would have special artists come in to perform for the city that people in Detroit like — Detroit favorites."


The 'Aretha's' has a nice ring to it!!!

Barcelona Disaster


A white van crashed  into a packed summer crowd this evening in Barcelona's historic Las Ramblas district. Barcelona police confirmed it was a terror attack. Officials said 13 people were killed and more than 100 injured.
The Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack. The terror group has frequently declared that it was behind terrorist incidents in recent years, but experts have warned their claims should be treated with caution.
 
Two suspects were arrested. Police later said the driver was still on the run.
Police shot dead a third man who drove at officers at a checkpoint. It was not clear whether he was connected to the Las Ramblas attack.
One of the arrested men was named as Driss Oukabir. He is suspected of renting the van, but later denied involvement and reportedly said his documents had been stolen.

The afternoon attack in the northeastern Spanish city was the country's deadliest since 2004, when al-Qaida-inspired bombers killed 192 people in coordinated attacks on Madrid's commuter trains.
 
It left victims sprawled out in the street, spattered with blood or crippled by broken limbs. Others fled in panic, screaming or carrying young children in their arms. As witnesses and emergency workers tried to help the wounded, police brandishing hand guns launched a search of side streets looking for suspects.
State-owned broadcaster RTVE reported that investigators think two vans were used - one for the attack and a second as a getaway vehicle.
 
Las Ramblas, a street of stalls and shops that cuts through the center of Barcelona, is one of the city's top tourist destinations. People walk down a wide, pedestrian path in the center of the street while cars can travel on either side.
The Spanish royal household said on Twitter: “They are murderers, nothing more than criminals who are not going to terrorise us. All of Spain is Barcelona. Las Ramblas will go back to being everyone’s.”
 
U.S. President Donald Trump said: "The United States condemns the terror attack in Barcelona, Spain, and will do whatever is necessary to help."
He added: "Be tough & strong, we love you!"

Carol Augustin, a manager at La Palau Moja, an 18th-century place on Las Ramblas that houses government offices and a tourism information center, said the van passed right in front of the building.
 
"We saw everything. People started screaming and running into the office. It was such a chaotic situation. There were families with children. The police made us close the doors and wait inside," she said.
While full details of the incident were not immediately clear, since July 2016 vehicles have been used to ram into crowds in a series of militant attacks across Europe, killing well over 100 people in Nice, Berlin, London and Stockholm.
