Verizon Wireless wants more of your money.

Verizon wireless has issued a new "convenience fee" if you pay your wireless account on-line at their website.  They will charge $2.00 if a payment is made on their website.  No fee will be charged if paying by check by mail or using monthly automatic payment feature.  Read some of the forum comments here:

Read the story here Washington Post:

Ben Breedlove's message.

Benjamin Breelove had a heart condition that ultimately took his life on December 25, 2011.  He made a 2 part silent video documenting his condition and his travails using flash cards.  It's very moving and tells of his experiences as he was flat-line while paramedics are working to bring him back to life.  Watch the 2 parts here:

Merry Holidays!

During this holiday season, I want to wish everyone Peace, Love and Joy.  I hope this season brings you new hope, new beginnings, mending fences and giving love to all you meet.

The holiday season always brings me stress.  Will I have enough money to buy gifts and still pay the rent?  Will my car hold out until I can get it fixed?  Will I have a stress-free week at work?  All these things cause my stress-o-meter to go off the charts, but the night before Christmas, I always seem to get filled with the spirit.  You should see me dancing to Rock'in Around the Christmas Tree while I'm making a holiday treat to take to the family get together.

All these things kinda fade into the background during Christmas and I always try to keep that feeling going into the New Year.  It always doesn't work, but I'm human and I try.

I hope you have a wonderful time this Christmas and that your New Year brings you all you wish for.

Love to one and all....

The Beekman boys make an announcement

The Fabulous Beekman boys, Brent Ridge and Josh Kilmer-Purcell , are going to be married.

From, "The two were the guests of honor last night at a party hosted by fellow reality TV star Sonja Morgan, who was joined by her Real Housewives of NYC co-stars Ramona Singer, Aviva Drescher, Carole Radziwill and Heather Thomson."

"I designed this ring for you,” he (Brent) said. “It’s imperfect on all sides, like both of us are. It’s hand forged from steel, like our 13-year relationship. And it’s also lined with silver. Because we always find the silver lining.”

With that, he got down on one knee and did the damned thing. “Will you marry me?”
Speechless and surprised, Josh didn’t have the words to say yes. After Brent put the ring on his finger, he said, “What’s your answer?”

“Yes!” said Josh

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton's speech to the U.N. on LGBT rights

Here is the link to the video of Secretary of State Clinton's speech to the United Nations on LGBT rights.  Hillary Rodham Clinton is a wonderful speaker.  She is an admirable supporter of LGBT rights and this country is so lucky to have her and her ideals regarding LGBT rights in the U.S. and around the world.

Here is the video:

Here is the link to Rick Perry's Presidential Candidacy page. Please write him and tell him what you think about his stance against Marriage Equality, supposed "abhorrent lifestyles" and anti-LGBT rhetoric:

Prick Perry for President 2012

Rick Perry hates LGBT people and here's proof.

Here is Rick Perry's response to President Obama's memorandum regarding gay rights and foreign aid:

"Just when you thought Barack Obama couldn’t get any more out of touch with America’s values, AP reports his administration wants to make foreign aid decisions based on gay rights.

This administration’s war on traditional American values must stop.

I have proposed a foreign aid budget that starts at zero. From that zero baseline, we will consider aid requests based solely on America’s national security interests. Promoting special rights for gays in foreign countries is not in America’s interests and not worth a dime of taxpayers’ money.

But there is a troubling trend here beyond the national security nonsense inherent in this silly idea. This is just the most recent example of an administration at war with people of faith in this country. Investing tax dollars promoting a lifestyle many Americas of faith find so deeply objectionable is wrong.

President Obama has again mistaken America’s tolerance for different lifestyles with an endorsement of those lifestyles. I will not make that mistake."
