Pauley Perrette is one of the kindest actors in Hollywood. She truly cares what happens to everyone and tries to do good and to help everyone out. So it makes what happened to the NCIS star yesterday even more horrifying. While walking to one her guest houses in Hollywood, she was brutally attacked by a homeless man. She feared for her life, but she used her wit and quick thinking to save herself. When he let her go, she ran and called for help. One of those people was a cop from her Church, and she gave him a nearly perfect sketch of the man who attacked her. The sketch was so good, they were able to capture him immediately. Getting him off the streets and hopefully getting him the help he needs.
When it comes to Pauley, her bravery and quick thinking should be commended. It is hard to know what to do that in that situation, but she did the right things and that is why she able to tell her story for people to learn what to do in a situation like hers.
About a year ago, I too was attacked by homeless man a few miles from where was attacked. I crossed the street to get away from him, locked myself in the gas station’s store and called the police. I filed a report, hoping to get him captured and get him the help he needed. After weeks of trying to find him. We never did. I wish I tried harder because he looks like the man who attacked Perrette and I pray it wasn’t the same guy. I didn’t file the report to protect myself, but to stop him from attacking others. I feel like I failed. I am sorry Pauley.
And we as a society are failing, we need to help these people and not throw them away with the trash. With meds, they might be able to live a normal life. We need to do more to help the mentally ill, so they don’t attack others.
I can tell you there are ramifications for the victims. I am still affected by it to this day, a year and a half later. I am still nervous to walk and even drive near where it happened, and it’s a few blocks from where I live. When I saw the photo of the man who attacked Perrette on Entertainment Tonight, I went numb and cried. There is nothing he can do to me, but it doesn’t mean I still can’t get scared. I hope no else ever goes through this. We should all feel safe where we live. Is that too much to ask for?
Yesterday, Nashville viewers were shocked when Scarlett walked in and her long blonde locks were gone. Claire Bowen explained why she got the drastic haircut on Facebook and it was for an admirable reason.
Wanna know why I cut it all off?
When I was four years old, I asked my mother; “Are there heaters in Heaven?”
I had just been diagnosed with end stage nephroblastoma, after several visits to a GP who denied anything was wrong and dubbed my parents “paranoid.” I’d overheard the doctors telling my family that the only hope of saving me, was an experimental treatment that might kill me anyway. But without it I had maybe two weeks left. The hospital was cold. I’d never felt air conditioning before.
Life in the White Palace (Granddad’s nickname for hospital) meant I got to grow up surrounded by children just like me. We were mostly bald, all tubed, taped, bandaged up and stitched back together. We were all missing parts, some obvious like eyes or legs, others more hidden, like lungs and kidneys. Those who still could, tip-toed around like little fairies because chemotherapy had destroyed the muscles in our legs and it hurt to put our heels on the floor. But we were all together, so no one’s appearance came into question. No one got laughed at or teased. We were all we knew.
And then I got really lucky. I survived, my hair grew back and I got strong again. I look relatively normal on the outside, but on the inside, I am still the same stitched back together little creature, in a world where people are judged so harshly for the way they look. It has always been completely incomprehensible to me. How can people think there’s time for that?
I was really inspired when I heard a story about a little girl who said she couldn’t be a princess because she didn’t have long hair, and I wanted her, and others like her to know that’s not what makes a princess, or a warrior, or a superhero. It’s not what makes you beautiful either. It’s your insides that count… even if you happen to be missing half of them.
Every scar tells a story, every baldhead, every dark circle, every prosthetic limb, and every reflection in a mirror that you might not recognize anymore. Look deeper than skin, hair, nails, and lips. You are who you are in your bones. That is where you have the potential to shine the brightest from. It is where your true beautiful self lives.
Thank you ABC network and particularly our creator, Callie Khouri for letting me change Scarlett’s hair, and my team, family and friends for helping me make the decision. If it makes even one person think twice about judging another, then in some small way, the world is better.
Self-esteem takes a lot longer to grow back than hair.
Bowen was beautiful with the long hair, but she is even more gorgeous without it.
If one little girl’s life is changed because of what she did, then that is a great start. But I think lots and lots of little girls will read or hear why she did it and they will be inspired. They will know you don’t have to have long hair to be a Princess, you just have to be happy with who you are. That is your most beautiful feature and don’t let anyone tell you differently.
There is a city in Alaska called North Pole and now there is a man on the city council named Santa Claus. If that doesn’t give you hope, I don’t know what does.
Back in 2005, child advocate and monk Thomas Patrick O’Connor, changed his name to Santa Claus. Since then he ran for President of the United States twice and this year he ran for City Council. As we know he never became President, but he did get elected to the City Council.
Too bad he isn’t running for President this year because we need someone like him to run against the people who currently trying for the top office of the country. He’d have my vote, would he have yours?
The Supreme Court announced their decision today on Same-Sex Marriages and they declared that it is constitutionally legal in all 50 states! That’s right, everyone can marry who they want no matter what the other person’s sex is! About freaking time!!!
SCOTUS voted 5-4 to legalize Same-Sex Marriages throughout the United States. Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote, “It would misunderstand these men and women to say they disrespect the idea of marriage. Their plea is that they do respect it, respect it so deeply that they seek to find its fulfillment for themselves.” Then he added, “Their hope is not to be condemned to live in loneliness, excluded from one of civilization’s oldest institutions. They ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law. The Constitution grants them that right.”
So put on your dancing shoes because we are going to need them for all of the weddings we are going to have to go in the near future.
A 16 year old girl bought a padded bra top off of Amazon. Even though it says that it runs small, her mom was shocked by how small it runs. It is so small that the top fit the cat better than her daughter.
The mom was so disgusted by it, she wrote a review so that anyone who considered ordering it would know. She wrote, “My 16 y.o. daughter bought this thing. It is ridiculously small and I probably couldn’t legally post a picture of what it looks like if she attempts to wear it. But, so you can see… here is a picture of our cat wearing it. To be fair, it does cover all of the cats nipples, however, she hates the weave. In summary, do not buy this, even for your cat.” Purrfect!
Remember when it was time to go to your prom and you couldn’t wait for that someone to ask you or to ask someone to it. You wanted that moment to be special? You waited and waited and then it was time.
Well this year, some guys found a way to ask their dates in a very sweet way. That way included Dunkin Donuts. Only problem is with prom just weeks away, she can’t eat any of them if she wants to fit into that dress that you want to take off of her.
But it’s the thought that counts and their thoughts were delectable!

A dog jumped out of his owner’s car on the highway in Brazil and a bunch motorcyclists stopped traffic to rescue him. The lost pup was so scared, he ran away from his rescuers until eventually they were able to capture him. Once they did, he was reunited with his owner and all was OK.
There are so many positive things about this videos. The fact that all those strangers came to the dog’s aid is amazing. But what also really touched my heart, is not only did all of those cars stop, but none of them beeped their horns complaining about being stopped for a four-legged friend. How remarkable is that?
Are you a man with a small penis and do you want to meet other men who are just like you? Well, Ant Smith is organizing a party where you can get to know other fellows who are as well endowed as you.
The 48 year old is 4″ erect, and said that he is comfortable with it because his wife of 17 years has helped him comes to terms with it. He wants other men to be OK with they have just like he is. He told i100, “I look back and I think how much time and how much energy have I wasted in my life being worried about something that really doesnâ€™t amount to a hill of beans.” Then he added, “My life is so much easier now that this issue is in the open. For me one brave step, one very small brave step can change completely the shape of your life.”
So if you want to meet other guys, who are ready to come out to world, and tell everyone that they have a little pee pee, then you can get more information about the Big Small Penis Party here that is taking place on March 7 in London. Women get in for a kind donation and men must pay a 50p ($76.66) per claimed phallic inch. I wonder if they will be honest. Youâ€™d think they would be, but then again they might actually say they are smaller, for once, to get 50p off?
The one thing I really want to know is how many sport cars, pickup trucks and automobiles with oversized tires will be parked outside. C’mon ladies, admit that we can tell a guy’s dick size by the car he drives!
Seriously men, be proud of what your mama gave you because it really is about the motion in the ocean.
Josh Paler Lin decided to do a little experiment and the outcome was something neither him nor us would ever expect.
He went up to a random homeless man and gave him $100. Then he followed him around to see what he would do with the money. The guy walked into a liquor store and came out with a big bag. What we all expected is that he stocked up on booze and we are all wrong. Because after he came out of the store, they continued to follow him to see what was in the shopping bag. To his surprise and ours, he bought food and was handing it out to other people that are in the same predicament as him.
Josh had to ask him about it. The guy told him he did not know the people he was giving the food to. Therefore, Josh asked him why he did it; and he told him “There are things money can’t buy. I get a happiness out of what I am doing.” Lin was so touched by his actions that he gave him another hundred bucks even though the guy didn’t want to take it. Both men were left stunned by the other one and we are left stunned by both of them.
Then Lin wanted to find out how he found himself living on the street. The man’s mother and stepfather, who he was living with, were both sick and on hospice care. The insurance only covered so much, so he quit his job to take care of them. Both of them died within two weeks of each other. The place where they were living was sold and then he found himself homeless for the last four months. The man also explained there are a lot of good people on the streets who find themselves suddenly without a home for many different reasons.
This is something we have to remember the next time see someone who finds themselves in a bad situation. I know it is something I will remember. Who would think a video that is under 5 minutes could leave such an impact, but it does.
Thank you to Josh Paler Lin for restoring my faith in humanity, I hope that he does the same for you.
Now, I am going to wipe my tears off because I can’t stop crying after watching this.
We have heard of soul mates and now we are seeing skeleton mates. Archeologists at the University of Leiceste were digging under the lost chapel of St. Morell when they discovered several bodies have been buried there. However, that was not their great discovery; finding a couple under the dirt who are not only lying next to each other, but their arms are crossed together.
Therefore, in a day when almost half of all marriages end in divorce, it is nice to see that 700 years ago even death couldn’t separate true love.
