Some of the tags on clothing made in China is coming with some very interesting tips on washing. This one was so cute I just had to share. Thanks Lori! The last one I saw had a tag that said, “Oranges are good for you”. I thought maybe that one was on a pair of Fruit of the Loom undies? LOL Enjoy.
On the top floor of an apartment complex, a known gang member and drug dealer kept his girlfriend locked up for at least two years. Police in NJ are saying it could have been up to 10 years. And you think when you waste a few minutes you can never get that time back.
Only one neighbor admits to ever seeing the woman, in all that time. He refused to give his name for fear of his safety. Other neighbors ‘know nothing’. How convenient. One maintenance worker said he remembers the woman because she ‘cussed him out’ when he was doing his work.
Supposedly, he let her out of the bedroom, at times, when he was home. She had also been seen getting into her captive’s auto several times.
Thousands of dollars of drugs were found in the apartment building during a search.
I will say that police did NOT find her padlocked, it is just believed to be the case. You can see the whole crazy story HERE.
I am not superstitious at all but married into a family that is very (like SUPER) superstitious. I informed my husband this morning that it was Friday the 13th to torment him a little, as he left for work this morning.
Here is a list of some common, and not so common, superstitions. Which ones do you believe? Or, do you believe they are all a little ‘off’? Leave a comment and let me know.
1. Walking under a ladder is bad luck. Well, if the person on the ladder spills something, or drops a hammer on your head, I might believe that one.
2. Spilling salt is bad luck unless you throw a pinch of it over your left shoulder. (Have you seen how small some of the salt shaker refill holes are? Who doesn’t spill salt?)

A 79-year old woman went shopping only to return and find the ground was hungry and swallowed half of her house in a giant sinkhole.
Ironically, surveyors for sinkhole risk were at the house when she stepped out to run some errands. I hope she didn’t have to pay them.
Neighbors say that the back of the house silently crumbled into the hole. One neighbor let her lay her head on his shoulder and cry.
You can see the video and interviews here at msnbc.com . That’s just crazy!
This was just too funny not to share! I hope when I get older, I have the oomph that this lady does! I love it. How funny is this? This reminds me of my Aunt Rosie, who stopped a mugger with a key. At the time, she had to be in her 60′s or close to 70! Totally awesome!
Thanks go to My Frugal Wife where I found this great story.
Annie Oakley, 8/13/1860-11/3/1926, became famous in the Buffalo Bill’s Wild West show for her awesome shooting skills. She was actually the first female superstar. Her most famous trick was shooting a playing card, from 90 feet away, with a .22 caliber rifle.
The Dallas AP released news Sunday that relatives of the famous sharpshooter were putting up for auction several items including her Stetson hat, letters, guns and photographs. The letters in the auction are said to be ‘emotionally revealing’ and tell how close the family was.
The items being offered for the auction block are given up by two of Oakley’s great-grandnieces. Both say they did not realize how many items were actually still in the family until their mother passed away in 2009, at the age of 95.
Ah, I am just a little saddened to see this because I feel some of their heritage is being sold. I have said it many times, we live in a throw-away society where today’s youth believes everything can be replaced. I know we cannot keep everything but there are some things sacred. One of those, in my opinion, is family.

A family in Toms River, New Jersey has left a home they rented after only seven days claiming that it is haunted. They have even had a pastor say that it has a demonic possession. NJ Paranormal Investigators have also investigated and say their findings show an ‘active or intelligent haunting’.
The landlord says that the haunting claim is stemming from the family’s credit woes and inability to pay for the house. He says they can’t afford the house and want their money back. Previous tenants have never claimed any haunting activity.
Remember the movie The Amityville Horror? Guess where it was filmed? You got it… Toms River, NJ.
That’s just crazy!

No children were ever in danger but were sent back inside schools until authorities used a stun gun on the bear. They safely returned the bear to the wild 1.5 hours away from the Bakersfield area to the Tejon Ranch.
That was a last day of science I bet those kids do not forget for a long time!
A boy goes to a garage sale, buys a vintage Polaroid for a buck and brings it home. Opening the camera later, he discovers a photo inside and shows it to his grandmother. She couldn’t believe it was a picture of HER son with his date, 33 years earlier!
It turns out that her son had passed away in an auto accident 23 years ago. The grandmother and the people that ran the garage sale did not know each other. The people from the garage sale have no idea where they got the camera.
That’s just crazy!
