To all you male bashers out there, obviously Ri Ri has made her decision, so don’t make it for her and leave my boy Breezy alone!!!!
In no way do i agree with the violence that transpired between these two, but every relationship has its issues, and apparently there is mad love between these two.
wish em the best.
Now this is what you call a man determined to get what’s his.
A Texas man whose car was stolen managed to get it back after spotting the vehicle on eBay while surfing the Internet – only a good 42 years after it disappeared.
Bob Russell was a graduate student at Temple University in Philadelphia when he had his 1967 Austin Healey roadster stolen from him back in 1970. According to the story, he had parked the car outside of an apartment complex just after a date with his future wife. The next morning, the car was gone.
Undeterred, Russell began looking for the car, keeping an eye out over the decades. Earlier this year, he spotted a likely looking vehicle listed by a Los Angeles car dealer on the online auction site. It was definitely his — everything checked out, including the VIN number listed. He contacted the dealer, who responded by offering to sell it back to him for $24,000.
Russell then contacted Los Angeles police, who were unable to help him because they were unable to find a record of the stolen car in the database. On a hunch, he went to the Philadelphia police, who figured out that the car’s VIN had been entered incorrectly into the FBI database.
Luckily, once the mistake was rectified, Los Angeles police were finally able to impound the car. Russell and his wife drove to California, paid $600 in fees and took their beloved car back home. Now, that’s devotion.
The bigger the country, the more people it has.
You know what is best for you. You know what you need to do. So why is it so hard to do it? Your thinking mind knows it would be great to get up at six in the morning and exercise, but you have a stronger urge to roll over and go back to sleep.
What will get you out of bed? Indeed, what will get you out of that prison of your own making known as your comfort zone? One of the greatest motivators the world has ever known — desire. If the desire is strong enough, you will do whatever it takes to achieve it.
How can you make the desire strong enough? First, find what you really, truly want — not what someone else wants for you, not what others think you should want, what YOU want. Then, connect it clearly and unambiguously within yourself to whatever must be done.
You are willing. You are able. You will do what needs to be done. You can be driven, disciplined and committed. Just connect your actions with your true desires.
Back before I was able to get all of my standard mail electronically(bills, bank statements, etc.), I would sort through the pile of $#!^ that got crammed through my mail slot everyday out of necessity. In the process, I would regularly discard all the Junk Mail so it never had the chance to build up. But now….since I don’t expect anything useful to be in the pile anyway, I have a tendency to toss the whole thing to the side and got through it maybe a couple times a week. The problem is that now I have a corner of my kitchen table that I haven’t seen in months!
If the image below looks anything like you…or there’s a possibility that it could, then go ahead and give it a click. This could be the end of your troubles…
*Disclaimer- I know at times I can come off harsh, but I mean no disrespect to any artist living or dead. By no way am I trying to place any person’s life over any others. But I have to ask, have we lost the last of our Icons?
The other day our world was rocked, we lost WHITNEY HOUSTON. Like damn homie, we lost another BIG NAME. The news of Whitney’s untimely, premature death brought CNN’s regularly scheduled Saturday night programming to a freeze. The news was all Whitney. We wanted to know what happened, and CNN was ready to deliver. Similar to when the King of Pop passed, Whitney (Queen of Pop) brought the world to a pause. Even in death she owned the moment.
Shortly after I thought to myself, have we lost the last one? Is there another artist who blew up in the 80′s capable of shutting down CNN? Of course the name that immediately that pops in your head is Madonna. And I am sure the day the we lose the Material Girl the world will come to a stand still. But after Madonna who else? Michael is gone. Whitney is gone. Luther is gone. Will Prince bring the world to pause when we lose him? How about George Michael? Billy Ocean? Lionel Richie? Boy George?
Once again I am not trying to place more importance on someone’s life, but losing Whitney so close after Michael you realize that “Damn Whitney AND Michael are GONE!” Simple and final. Like half of the Beatles are gone; half of the 80′s Mount Rushmore of Music is gone. Madonna is left standing, maybe you can throw Prince in there. But after that it is on to the 90′s.
Well, another Valentine’s Day is upon us. Ever since I stopped passing out little envelopes and suckers to the whole class in elementary school, the meaning of Valentine’s Day has taken on a number of different meanings. In my teen years it was an opportunity to lure Young Cuties into “the Web”; as a young adult, it was a chance to hone my Super Smooth Mack Moves, and as an adult…it became an all out responsibility!!
That’s right….I said it. I know some of you guys are thinking the same thing…you just don’t dare say it out loud. Hell, making sure you do good by your sweetie on February 14th ends up falling on the same list as going to your bi-annual dentist appointment and cleaning out the gutters. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve got no problem with making sure my “Special Someone” feels loved…but I do have an issue with having to jump through hoops and do a song and dance just because the calendar says it’s February 14th and my girlfriend doesn’t want to have ‘That Look’ on her face when her girlfriends ask what I did for her on Valentine’s Day!!
Ladies won’t admit it, but it’s the god’s honest truth. We’ve all seen our friends and other couples have those long few days from February 15th to February 20th (depending on how many times she had to tell the story of how you forgot or bought her a lame a$$ toaster) where an otherwise happy relationship turns into a dead zone because of those infamous V-Day events. Hell…I’ve even seen people break up! Well…I’ve got a few Real Mogul-Life suggestions to take the sting out of Valentines Day, and add some much needed Love & Affection to any relationship….Mogul Style:
- Create a Valentine’s Day tradition that isn’t as much focused on what you do for each other, but more about what you do for the other people in your lives that add Love and Support to you and your relationship. It’s something you can do together, will make you both feel good, and take the pressure off of measuring your Love by one day’s events.
- Choose another date on the calendar that has meaning (not your anniversary) and make it a point to celebrate your Love on that day. If possible, pick a time when your lives are notoriously busy and you normally wouldn’t have as much time together, and make it a point to do something you both Really enjoy. You can give the day a special name, and even begin to build some relationship enhancing traditions. It’ll give you something to look forward to at time when you need it most!
- Play hookie. Pick a random day, either before, or after Valentine’s Day and disappear with your loved one. Leave no messages, tell no one (other than making arrangements for work), and make no plans. Go somewhere no one knows your name, laugh loudly, be silly, eat well, and make Love someplace you normally wouldn’t The two of you will have secret reasons to smile for weeks to come.
Happy Valentines Day Moguls
“The loss of Whitney Houston is painful. I remember meeting Whitney for the first time when I was 15. She was the ultimate legend. The ultimate woman. Not only was she confident, poised, stunningly beautiful and intelligent, but she was sincere and kind. She took the time to make everyone feel like they were very important to her. I, like every singer, always wanted to be just like her. Her voice was perfect. Strong but soothing. Soulful and classic. Her vibrato, her cadence, her control. So many of my life’s memories are attached to a Whitney Houston song. She is our queen and she opened doors and provided a blueprint for all of us.
God bless her.”
