Marlee Martin still fits into her Oscar dress
March 23rd, 2020 under Admirable People. [ Comments: none ]

Back in 1987, Marlee Martin won an Oscar for her starring role in Children of a Lesser Gd. Over the weekend, she was able to recapture that feeling. No, she did not win another award. She got something better.

The 54-year-old was able to still fit into the dress she wore that night. As any woman can you tell, that might be even better than winning that little statuette! Then again, must of us have not won an Oscar.


Derrick Nnadi is the true MVP of the KC Chiefs and KC pets!
February 3rd, 2020 under Admirable People, Sports figures. [ Comments: none ]
Derrick Nnadi was so excited that the Kansas City Chiefs won the Super Bowl yesterday that he made confetti angels on the field. Turns out, he is also an angel when he is standing on all two paws.

After the game, the Defensive Tackle made a phone call that will change hundreds of lives. He called up the KC Pet Project and made them an offer they could not refuse. The animal shelter wrote, “KC WINS! We are so excited to announce that the Kansas City Chiefs defensive tackle, Derrick Nnadi is choosing to celebrate the Super Bowl win by paying for the adoptions of all the adoptable dogs currently at KC Pet Project!

We have had an amazing, season-long, partnership with Derrick and he couldn’t have thought of a better ending.”

Since the news of his generosity broke, the no-kill shelter say, “44 pets left the shelter today (38 dogs and 6 cats) with new families and up to 30 more are going home tomorrow! Of the 109 dogs that qualified for the sponsorship, around 40-50 of those dogs will still be available after tomorrow, which is incredible.” Beyond incredible and at least one of those best friends better be named after their benefactor.

If you want to adopt (never shop) one of the remaining pups, then you can see them here.

The 23-year-old already has the Derrick Nnadi Foundation that not only helps pets, but also children in both Kansas City, Missouri and his hometown Virginia Beach, Virgina. Like I said, he is an angel. Even if he did got to Florida State. Nnadi is one to watch and I cannot wait to see what else he does on and off of the field.


DJ Qualls comes out as gay
January 13th, 2020 under Admirable People. [ Comments: none ]

DJ Qualls has played the stud in several movies, and now the actor has a confession to make. He told his followers on Friday, “It is 11:20pm. I just came out on stage at a @jimjefferie show in San Diego. Yep, I’m gay. Been gay this whole time. Tired of worrying about what people would think of me. Tired of worrying about what it would do to my career.”

He can still play the man who gets all the girls or boys. Who cares anymore? As long as he is happy, what else matters?

If some production does not want you because you are gay, then you did not want them in the first place.


Sia was Santa Claus on Thanksgiving!
November 29th, 2019 under Admirable People. [ Comments: none ]

Christmas came early yesterday in Palm Springs thanks to Sia. The singer went to a Walmart and a T.J. Maxx there and paid for several people’s bills. Just like when she wears a wig during her performances, she attempted to do it anonymously. Sia told everyone she was a lottery winner and was paying it forward. They believed her until Adri Buckles revealed who the Thanksgiving giver is.

Sia is as beautiful as her music. She made several people remember what Thanksgiving is all about. Being thankful and helping others.


An a capella band break out into song at Chick-fil-A!
July 16th, 2019 under Admirable People. [ Comments: none ]

Several members of an a capella group was in Nashville training at the Acappella Company’s Worship Leader Institute and they were hungry. Therefore, they went to the Chick-fil-A in Rivergate and decided to sing for their meal. The men did such a great with Lean on Me that even people, who were not in the group, sang along.

Who doesn’t know the Bill Withers’ tune? It is so positive, it is hard not to sing along with a smile on your face. As big as all of the cows who are happy more people are choosing to eat at the chicken joint instead of the other fast food ones.

Seriously though, this is such a beautiful thing. I wish this would happen at more restaurants. Maybe instead of hearing about the brawls that happen at them, we can hear about people being brought together because of a song. Look at this video, men, women, black, white, costumers and workers all joined together as one voice. This is what we need more of. Instead of the extremists in DC trying to divide us.

Case in point, when I first saw this video, the person wrote that this happened in a Nashville Chick-fil-A, I thought another racist video. Instead, I saw that unite people and is pure joy! Let’s see more of this and less of the former.

Thank you Jake Jones for sharing.
