Remember when hooking up might get you pregnant?

If you are in the over 40 crowd, hooking up and Internet dating can get painful. Nevermind Tinder causing hook-up syndrome because it does not, we cause ourselves hook-up drama.

 The article “In Search of Nursemaid, No Internet Boos Allowed” seems to agree. (Tinder is not saying they agree, I am saying I agree.)
Internet dating for the aged is different that it is for the younger crowd. We see time progression in our profile pics and we may become physically injured during a hook-up. Is the participant in the hook-up required to call the paramedics or is it understood that it is the decent thing to do?

How would one contact next-of-kin if the hospital won't let you in the room because you are not married or related? What if the hook-up was underinsured or uninsured? Do you offer to pay for a hospital stay or urgent care as if it were dinner? How does all of that work during a hook-up? Remember when the greatest worry about hooking-up was pregnancy and stalking?
My other funny articles may be found at examiner.

Anyone planning to attend 2015 Carnival festivities should call ahead before making travel plans.

Ebola fears prompt Trinidad Carnival commission to contemplate postponing 2015celebrations CaribbeanFever / FeverEyes / CaribbeanFever / FeverEyes

 "As the agency charged with the responsibility of presenting and managing Carnival activities held under the aegis of the Government of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago, we have taken an active role and will work alongside our partners to spare no effort in ensuring that Ebola does not reach our shores or that if it does, it is contained.

The NCC wishes to reassure the public that we are working closely with all our stakeholders and will provide timely updates as it relates to the preparation of Carnival 2015.

Should you require additional information, please feel free to contact me at or 622-4800 or Mr. Kevon Gervais, Manager, Corporate Communications at or 622-1670 ext. 409."

"St. Vincent and the Grenadines has placed a ban on nationals from Nigeria, Sierra Leone, and Guinea, entering the island, as Caribbean countries continue to put in place measures to deal with a possible outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus in the region. Prime Minister Dr. Ralph Gonsalves said that the measure was taken given the lack of infrastructure on the island to deal with the Ebola virus for which there is no known cure."

You ain't got the answers: Kanye West talks fashion struggles, who is the no. 1 rapper on Sway in the Morning radio show

Kanye West gets real with Sway in the morning  I GET KANYE BUT WE AIN'T GOT THE ANSWERS. I understand what he is saying and he is correct. However, he has to pray as a Christian, to find his way. Sway is telling him to do things from scratch and Kanye is saying he shouldn't have to come up the rough side of the mountain at his current level and status. What he should do is collaborate and form a collective of people in his peer group, and go from there. However, this action will take enormous levels of cooperation within the collaboration. He has to create his own platform to control the means of production in his fashion arena. And then he should write songs about his struggles. People need to catch this, what he is saying, because we all face these barriers as we expand and make and achieve our highest goals.
Kanye West is a genius.

Seniors need the right activities, Geriatric Activities Should be Appropriate to Ability

Leisure time activities for the elderly blind take research and planning. A changing social order and longer life expectancy call for planned and sustained activity schedules that meet the needs of elderly blind citizens. Therapy can assist the blind elderly in staying both active and safe in the Washington, D.C. area.                                                                        
Downtown Cluster's Geriatric Day Care Center, located in downtown Washington DC, offers art therapy for the elderly blind. As far back as the late seventies, art therapy has been used to exercise the mind and bolster self-esteem of elderly individuals, writes Jean Ellen Jones in an article entitled, "Art and the Elderly: An Annotated Bibliography of Research and Planning."

Some may feel as if art therapy isn't appropriate for the blind elderly citizen but sensory stimulation and enhancing existing skills is essential, according to Art Beyond Sight, a non-profit organization. 

Regional Senior Development Centers

The staff at Downtown Cluster's Geriatric Day Care Center, appear to agree. They say art therapy is offered for blind elderly patients because it is an alternative path of expression.
"Art therapy helps participants tap into their abilities and strengths at a time in their lives when they are often reminded of losses and deficits," they write.

Music Therapy
Sunrise Senior Living offers music therapy at two locations in the form of sing-a-longs, dancing, name that tune and live entertainment. The Sunrise Senior Living staff feel as if music is a "familiar and universal language... nurtures the spirit and reminds...(the residents)" of better days.

The American Music Therapy Association web site says when music is used in a way that accomplishes a goal of therapy, it is then considered music therapy. It helps with "memory loss, general wellness, stress, pain management, communication, expression of feelings and helps with physical rehabilitation."
It is especially good for the elderly blind geriatric citizens.

Physical Therapy
Stoddard Baptist Nursing Home located in Washington D.C. offers physical therapy. They involve staff, residents and family in a "team" approach to geriatric activities for the blind elderly. Outings as physical therapy are available too. Stoddard's summer schedule in Washington, D.C. includes trips to flea markets and area churches. The sounds, smells and feel experienced on an outing are used in therapy. Additionally, an exercise group is a regular feature at Stoddard.

"Falling is a common and serious problem for the elderly," writes physical therapist John R. Mishock, DC, MPT, in a November 2009 Mercury newspaper article,
"Physical Therapy for Fall Prevention in the Elderly."

Using a the Stoddard physical therapy staff to assess fall risk or to help heal from a fall is a good activity in which to engage the blind elderly.

#RHOA Ms NeNe Leaks is NOT Playing!

 Kendra looked through NeNe's window and exclaimed something to the effect that she liked what Ne Ne did with the table Kendra gave her. Ne Ne replied:

This all started when Ms. NeNe did not let the ladies in her home for the scheduled 9 p.m. catered meal since they were three hours late. She had friends over for them to meet and everything. No, they did not call. They showed up at midnight and Greg gave them an antipasto platter and Ne Ne sent them on their way.

The next day the girls got up early, led by Kenya, to be on time for the day's events.  They attended an acting class. A part of an improv exercise was to hurl complements at each other. Didn't quite go right. Kenya had her abs out. (Phaedra was hatin' but she mite be preggers)

While dining, the subject of booty vids, Kendra's ex and Kim ZB stealing Kandi's baby name of Cash came up for discussion. This is what Kim ZB said:

 (ooh. harsh and unexpected.)

Ok. Why is this the game? No snatching bald please. matching weave games? Please. haha

Ab Fab is On!

On BBC America "Olympics" is the name of the skit. I love this show. I love these women! Dahhhhhling. Go dahhhhling, make phone calls...tighten up a bit--swinging saloon doors...Whoooooooo.
I love this series. These ladies have kept me laughing throughout the years. God Bless them!
Folds of old skin! Shortage House? It's so British! Incontinence when you sneeze? Wet!
Menopause symptoms? "We have all these Michael Douglass invites and I'm going to use them!"
It is my quiet goal to live in London. I want to see how it is--how they get on and all. I may be my destiny.

Omg why Eds got to be fallin' down and going out the wrong doors? anyway Ab Fab is a testament to what happens to party girls after the age of 35. Okay 45. But at 50 there is a no go. Okay 60 is definitely the cut off age for women in any club anywhere. By that age, they should own the club. Right? (Another goal.)

Nasty Jackson Family Feud Grows

Looking at published reports, it seems as if Katherine Jackson needed to get some rest, as it was reported she had a stroke (but that fact was later denied.) Randy Jackson called into Al Sharpton's MSNBC show Tuesday to explain the situation and why Paris Jackson keeps tweeting about not knowing where her grandmother, Katherine, is located. Randy said she is with eldest daughter Rebe (Centipede) and her family in Arizona.

Paris Jackson's Twitter Account
Michael Jackson's children are allegedly annoying the rest of the family because they are interfering in Jackson family business by tweeting private concerns and in general being accessible to the wrong type of people. Katherine's kids want her to stay in Arizona with her eldest daughter Rebbie and say they had been planning to do that for a while but MJ's kids are crying for their grandma--who has been caring for them since their father died. A court appointed guardian is being assigned to Paris and her brothers. Tito's son also offered to care for the famous siblings.
Also, today it was announced Sherman Hemsley died at the age of 74.

interview Questions for Men

Why Whitney the Songbird Died

I'm watching Dr. Drew and he has the woman who the late Whitney Houston was fighting at a club. She was on the X-Factor and may have had a romantic relationship with Ray-J. When Ray-J brought the woman around Whitney, they got into it, according to Dr. Drew's show. That is why blood was visible on Whitney's leg in photos as she was leaving the club. We can piece together what happened from there.

The one point made I agree with is that no one really says anything when we know a person is in trouble. Maybe it is because there is a whole lot of talking and not a lot of listening or maybe because everybody else is high and wrapped in their own problems as well. Selfishness and narcissism leads to substance abuse. Believe me, I know.

Whitney's voice was a gift from God. Her fans accepted her as she was and we are sad she is gone. No judgements here.

Indiana’s Mitch Daniels Dishes in Newest Book

According to an AP story in the Post-Tribune, Indiana governor Mitch Daniels indicates many other pols have really sad and self-serving reasons to pen memories but he does not.

He discussed his book, “Keeping the Republic“ on C-Span’s Washington Journal in August.

“Despite a long involvement with public life, I have read very few books by public officials, past or present…judging by the ones I have read, many are written to justify the authors’ actions or, worse, to settle personal scores. Others aim to embellish the authors’ role or proximity to major events, and still others are thinly veiled exercises in self-advertisement,” Daniels writes.

UNREPORTED : Feature Film by Jason (Six-Nine) Barnes deemed "shocking" for rape theme-- IndieGoGo

UNREPORTED : Feature Film -- IndieGoGo: "- Sent using Google Toolbar" Check out the trailer Unreported, a shocking new film by indi film producer, Jason E. Barnes. Go to the links below to find out about Justin Lake's terrible secrets.

Filmmaker, producer and Washington, D.C. native, Jason E. Barnes is sizzling hot. His newest film, "Unreported," has a twist: male rape.

The film is in pre-production and Barnes is seeking to raise funds for the project.

When asked, Barnes said he chose the subject matter of the film because it happens more frequently that anyone will admit.

"This film delves into the after effects of the attack and really shows the breakdown that men feel when their manhood is threatened. Thousands of men are raped every year and very few (less than 5%) ever report it because they are fearful of being thought gay, less of a man, weak, etcetera but it still happens. More and more, men are targeted for just that reason," Barnes said.

Pressed further, films like "Deliverance," "Pulp Fiction" and "Brokeback Mountain," come to mind as they involve male rape or sodomy themes and scenes. Barnes insists his film is different.

"(With) Pulp fiction--it was only a small portion of the film. Brokeback Mountain was more of a gay love story."Unreported" is tapping into a topic that people will feel on a visceral level. No one up until now had made a script to explore this area of our lives. People will want to see it and it will get them communicating more," Barnes said. No word on whether or not the R-rated film will contain a male rape scene.

Barnes, who has been living in Los Angeles for a while, said the film tracks the psychological and physical breakdown of lead character, Justin Lake as his life is torn apart by the bad decisions he makes in the aftermath of his brutal attack--in an attempt to hide it.

Barnes said his will be the first feature film that deals realistically with the devastating impact of male rape outside of a prison setting.
