When you look at a country spending billions of dollars in a war in Iraq, you can't help but wonder what we are thinking.  Billions of dollars to protect us from terrorists or is it insurgents?  I'm not sure; I just know lives and our hard earned money is headed FAR AWAY FROM THIS COUNTRY because mankind has not developed beyond the early days of the Bible.
We can come up with billions to kill and destroy but little to rebuild the city of New Orleans a place where American people worked and slaved to give it meaning.  Why is that?  Why is it not important to take care of this area of our country?  In America alone, we have single individuals that could afford to rebuild that whole foundation and they would not miss the money as far as lifestyle.  Yet, our rich preachers, athletes and celebrities except the exceptional ones would rather sit on money they will never spend in this life time than to be a blessing for innocent victims of a natural disaster.
Our media does not expose good on a high scale, they would rather we continue thinking the world is filled with heartless, selfish and greedy people seeking to be worshiped by others.  But this does not apply to everyone.  My heart was blessed when I read and listened to Brad Pitt share his genuine concerns in rebuilding New Orleans.  He is one soul that went there with the people's best interest at heart without looking for a pat on the back.  He didn't just come there for news coverage and tax write-offs.  This family man and well known celebrity came to assist in healing New Orleans.  For once, it was not about color but supporting humanity to become stronger and nurtured.  I just want to thank God for his spirit and his family being so willing to join him on his determined mission to do good will.

Lue's Little Joke Store!

Life for me before 1968 was anything but a lot of laughs. It was Georgia, what can I say? That's why since then, I've bypassed realities and dedicated my existence to funny! The retail outlet mentioned here is wholly illusionary, and an overdue answer to my ernest prayers! Won't you come in?

Festive Enchantment with a twist

While other films, notably ‘Shrek’ and its sequels, have poked fun at the traditional Disney fairytale, ‘Enchanted’ has the added dimension of being an ‘inside job’. Who better to affectionately satirise the values held dear to the late Walt Disney than the animation company he lovingly built?

Duran Duran’s pop Massacre

Back in an era style forgot, when leg warmers, puffball skirts and crimped hair were the height of fashion, one band were plastered on every teenage girl’s bedroom wall and held warmly in the hearts of housewives everywhere.
