HONORING SLY AND THE FAMIY STONE

Remembering Over Three Decades Of Their Music


There was James Brown Sex Machine which was pretty cool, and then there was Sly Stone's Sex Machine which was the sexiest Sex Machine ever and still to date ( in my opinion )!

We at Jozacmusic revel minus the drinking in Sly and The Family Stone's music so my husband ( Jozac ) and I put a little something together to honor their memories. This snippet is not an attempt to infringe on any copyrights and is intended for entertainment purposes only. (MIU)  Enjoy

Shout Out


Greenleaf

Oprah Winfrey and Company:  You all deserve a standing Ovation! I can definitely see an Emmy in your future!

I asked for it in one of my blogs a program via television media that is family oriented consisting of trials, triumphs, inspirations, failures, temptations & family secrets connecting generations.  Oh boy did I get it with a church theme.  Greenleaf was tastefully done and I don't believe there was any life's topic that wasn't endearing or untouched.

I was elated that you Oprah shed light on the church. Some church folk think that they are holier than Christ Jesus. God and Christ are used as an excuse for everything under the sun and twisted every way but loose. Most times for the ill at heart than the pure at heart.  However it's real but sad. On that note I want to give character Mavis ten thumbs up for that compelling speech she gave to Grace about her family history and "church folk". My sentiments exactly.

I'm reminded of Walter Scott "What a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive" in reference to some of the Greenleaf family members. So I must mention Jacob's daughter she's perfected an art for twisting the words of the Bible to fit her agenda and at such an early age.
Another compelling act was between the two sisters Mavis and Lady Mae!! I became emotionally overwhelmed at that point. It took me a couple of hours to regroup. That's excellent writing and performing.

Needless to say our world is full of sick folk that has scared someone's life everywhere one way or the other or taken advantage of the pure at heart. No one on this earth is perfect or without sin. I'm also sure that every family every where can relate to Greenleaf. Nobody's exempt.

Thanx again for such a riveting story. I hope the Greenleaf saga continues!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lost English Vocabulary and Expressions.

Weird Thoughts


It would seem that as generations change so does our vocabulary.

Here are some words I remember as a child that have disappeared from our everyday conversations.

Brassiere, Basin, Bellboy, Footstool, Jukebox, Nylons, Record Player, Steward, Stewardess, Stockings, Swish Broom, Telephone, Washboard, and Girdle.

These are expressions:  Whatchamacallit, Thingamabob, My Guy, Can You Dig It, Thingamajig, Morlocky, Alphabet telephone exchange (AU1-5611)

I'm sure there are a lot more.  If you can remember any please leave them in your comments.

STRICTLY ON A WHIM! (Don't Sleep On Tyler Perry)


I must confess only Tyler Perry as a writer can get the wheels turning in this writer's head.  Although there are some really great writers out there, such as Gillian Flynn, Craig Wright and Zaillian&Price.

Yesterday I tweeted about Jeffery stabbing his mother in the heart and not knowing whether that could be a good thing or a bad thing, so imagined three scenarios; Imprisonment for attempted murder, Insane Asylum or Fugitive. I didn't see last night's episode, so I'm not really sure what's going on!  However s**t's really hitting the fan. Don't know how many episodes a season carries but with not many left here's how I think it may play out.  With Wyatt possibly dead Kat and Jim have no children Tyler may bring Jim's bastard family into the picture to smear in Kat's face and Katheryn will end up killing Jim. I can definitely imagine Jeffery as a fugitive especially since he has a cop friend for an ally. Jeffery on the run then emerging as a transvestite totally oblivious to others except maybe Candace, intriguing  hmmmmm?? This stuff is just too good, it's better than milk chocolate.

Moving along I'm guessing Tyler's probably wrapping up production on his Film Boo coming out in October which was probably filmed on site and in production at his new establishment Fort McPherson? I'm also wondering if the series of Greenleaf was filmed there as well? 

Tyler would you help me out here???????

OVERJOYED!


My cup runneth over. Such prolific writing I've decided to hold my blogs until seasons end if I can refrain myself in doing so. Season 6 of HAHN Tyler Perry is satisfying every hunger and quenching every thirst while remaining unpredictable. Superb!

Greenleaf reaffirms my opinion of the circus that Christianity has become and a great view of the character likes who hide behind it. However it is unremarkable and magnificent storytelling. Kudos to writer Craig Wright and Oprah Winfrey.  Finally something to share at the family dinner table on so many levels. I no longer attend church, found him for myself years ago now my church lives within me. Grace has her name for a reason when I see her I'm reminded of:

Isaiah 11:1-6
 And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots:
2 And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD;
3 And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears:
4 But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked.
5 And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins.
6 The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them.

Last and not least for all of the stories are equally great, is The Night Of HBO's new mini crime series. Zaillian and Price made it, (the criminal justice system) all surreal from different vantage points while telling a compelling story. Marvelous.

The shows are all fantastic.
On pins and needles waiting for each next showing no time to blog. They're all just too gooooooood. You'll just have to wait Ms. Dr Alexes Cross is on writers steroids; formula PWZP

FLATLINE! (Getting Mom Her Gift)



TIME TO GO

"Time to go" were the three words spoken by my BFFL, the last significant words from anyone who meant something to me.  It was May 15th 1977, I was twenty-one years old, nine months pregnant my water had broke and I was about to give birth to my first born child.

I remember as if it were yesterday.  May 14th is my mothers birthday the year 1977 she was celebrating 50 years of life.  She had a large celebration that year.  Family and family friends filled our home from near and far most of all afar.  I wanted so badly to have the baby on her birthday.  It has been said that dancing or any type of strenuous exercise can induce labor.  I danced the night away to Marvin Gaye's Got to give it up!  It didn't happen right away.  Sunday morn around 5 am the party was dispersing. Family members who lived close went home and those from far went to hotels while others remained at our house. Everyone in the house had retired to get a bit of sleep before late morning. Mom and dad my two grandmas and grandpa, aunts and uncles.  As the house was quiet and filled with the sound of snoring me myself and I was the only thing stirring about. Feeling alone and left out I decided to lay down even if I couldn't sleep,  I did. Shortly after laying down, my body started doing foreign things. So I lay there for about half an hour wondering if I should alert anyone especially since they've barely been sleep an hour.  No I  decided I just got back up and walked around thinking to myself. I was feeling little needling pains in my pelvic and vaginal areas. Over a two hour period they had lasted. First twenty minutes apart,  then fifteen and  ten. I remember in birthing class we were taught about contractions so I thought this is what's happening and I had better tell someone.  All the while thinking to myself if this is what birth pain feels like I can handle it.  I went downstairs to the rec area and found my bff laying on the sofa, I told her about it. Half awake she said Nae Nae it's nothing, "just go lay down and go to sleep." Okay now I'm thinking who would know better than her since she had recently given birth to her first born who is my niece. So I did and anyway they had stopped.  An hour later they started again same pattern 20, 15, 10 this time they were a little stronger. So I go to mom and grandma who I had to wake up. Mom is reluctant who is the mother of six and grandma who was a midwife,  is nudging her to go and check me out. Two of my aunties from far who are RN's,  were sleeping over one's also a midwife and they both have over 20 years experience in nursing. Mom awakens them, they both examine me and decide false alarm.  However one aunt explains I could be experiencing what's called lightning in the medical terms of OBGYN.  Lightning is when baby is trying to break through the placenta. It's  around 11:00am everybody's up and all eyes are on me.  The pain is coming around a third time but even stronger.  I have a flashback of the movie Alien staring Sigourney Weaver. Particularly the scene where the alien is ripping the man's body half into coming out.  It was at that moment fear crept in. Auntie checks me saw that I had started dilating and recommends I be taken to hospital for exam.  I go get checked  and doctor sends me back home confirming what I was experiencing was "lightning." The time is now  after 2:00pm, I go to the bathroom to urinate, pull my pants up afterwards and something new happens.  Water is coming from my vagina through my pants and I can't stop the flow so  I'm standing in a puddle. I cry out for help and Mom and Grandma come running they know right away my water had broke.  It is really time to go now.  My bff takes me back to the hospital only this time it was for certain to deliver.  On the way there she says to me these words I shall never forget and took solace in, "I wish that I could have that baby for you Nae Nae."  The way I felt then and now I wish she could have too.

It's minutes to three when we arrive at the hospital. Nurses and staff check me and reexamine me. I'm taken back to labor and delivery. Here's the thing the nurse asked if  I would like to get in bed, or walk around being  I had more dilating to do.  What she did not mention was once you are in bed you can not get back up.  I opted to go to bed, I was exhausted and only wanted to sleep. Bad decision? Although at first it might seem so, I think not, it's probably what helped sustain me.  At that juncture I was imprisoned in my bed.  My hands were restrained and my feet placed in stirrups. It was then fear took a mezzanine seat, all this plus now I was actually contracting at twenty minutes apart and the pain was becoming  unbearable. I remember pleading with the nurse if I could get up and walk around I'd be okay, it was then I found out once you're in bed you're in bed till delivery is complete. After two sets of twenty minute contractions. I decided in between I would need to sleep in order to continue I slept for five hours  uninterrupted by nurse or contractions. I was awakened by next shift nurse who was baffled and annoyed that I had stopped contracting during my rest. I was happy and well rested.  I had been told that nothing stops contractions not even your sleep ha. It was now in the eight o'clock hour the nurse reported I had been sleeping during which time the labor stopped. The doctor ordered to induce labor.  It's a good thing my body took in some rest. Half an hour later contractions started again right where they left off twenty minutes for an hour then fifteen this time pain extremely unbearable, so this is how pay back feels. By eleven pm I was down to ten minutes apart when I hear the nurse say okay she's ready let's get her over to delivery. By this time I'm completely out of my mind, wiggling trying to free myself,  yelling, screaming and pleading for mercy. Fear had taken a front row seat. All I could think of was Alien. They roll me in the delivery room there's this big bright lamp over this steel thin table with a doctor at the foot and one at the head. They place me on the cold table placing my feet in the stirrups and restraining my hands I remember It took four of them.  I hear doctor say she's crowning and signal the anesthesiologist to knock me out. The anesthesiologist proceeded to try to place a mask over my nose, adding to the trauma.  I'm  swinging my head from side to side, in hopes of stopping him to no avail and  with him partially  succeeding.  At this point I remember rendering myself as helpless and loosing this fight as I vaguely hear doctor say forceps, in that instance my last Will and thought was "oh God this is it i can't take anymore."   Then I shut my body down.  FLAT LINE!  
That was the day I probably shocked my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. (Pun intended)  Jesus probably said to Our Father OMYOU father did you see what this one just did? I know she's strong Willed but the will to stop life? This one is special I'll have to keep my eyes her.  And maybe Christ thought too if Peter had that Will. Here's yet another thought she turned her life off let's she if she has the Will to turn it back on wait....wait.  Silly of me only I have the power to give life. I had better turn her back on because I surely didn't call her home. I have plenty more work for her to do. 

 "Back to Life, Back to Reality" back to the there and then.  I awakened in a frenzy in a very dim lit room. Unbeknown to her,  I watched as she (the nurse) abruptly stood from a chair at my bedside when noticing the machine flicker.   Patting my hand and telling me to be calm in a gentle voice. I sobbingly asked as I felt my stomach did I have that baby and she quickly nodded and said yes. I responded with a sigh of relief.  The huge clock on the wall showed the time was three-forty.  My next question was what did I have, she said " you had a beautiful healthy baby boy" and no sooner than she got the b in boy out I said "Yuck,"  she chuckled and asked why I replied "I wanted a girl." back to sleep I fell in an instant. Waking again after 4am and feeling relieved she asked how are you feeling I said fine. She said "well you gave us all a good scare, the doctors had to charge you four times."  "We lost you."  Don't let them (referring to the doctors) tell you anything else." "I'm telling you this in confidence and I could loose my job, but you have the right know." In hind sight we lost you was putting it mild and rightly so, I guess if she had said you died,  the fragile condition I was in, I probably would have died again lol.  None of what she was saying meant a bag of beans to me then.  I was just so happy to have that baby out of me. However I did thank her. I've often thought about having the opportunity to tell her what a huge influence those words have in my relationship with Christ Jesus today.

It didn't matter to me but it mattered to Mom and Dad who were horrified when they reached the hospital at noon to find me in ICU hooked up to six machines. Not to mention the hospital didn't inform them that I had complications during delivery. Dad was simply glad that I was alive and he had his first grandson. Mom was furious,  the doctors did inform them that my heart had stopped and how many times they had to charge me.  I don't know never asked how long I shut down but The Almighty brought me back.   No I didn't see "The Light" or any afterlife experience. I guess that's because it wasn't according to Christ Jesus my time.  Some doctors proclaimed that it was a massive myocardial infarction except no one has ever had one and lived to tell about it, and there were no visible signs of one.  There were  other theories it had something to do with rheumatic fever which I had no history of . The doctors were baffled again courtesy of moi and you know who!  Twenty-one years later yet another unexplained incident according to them. Doctors back in the 1970's and earlier on believed they had the power over life and death lol. They've just gotten so today that they will admit that all they can do is their best and The Almighty Father does the rest. Anyways under doctor's orders I remained in the hospital for a week although my son could go home.  Mom forbid it she said "my grandson will stay in this hospital close to his mother." The baby was born at 2:09 am May 16th 1977 with help of forceps (which are now illegal) weighing in at 8lbs/101/2oz and 23" long.  He is currently 39yrs old and a blast.   I figure that's close enough to Mom's birthday. Happy Birthday Mom my gift to you a grandson!


Here's my theory in short. You know that cliche:  scared/frightened to death.  Literally  I'm living proof. 

Thanks and Praises to my Lord and Savior Christ Jesus.  Amen!

"WILL"




There are two definitions for the word; will according to Oxford dictionary: will 1 and will 2. In this essay I'll be expressing will 2.  The faculty by which a person decides on and initiates action: she has an iron will a battle of wills between children and their parents' [mass noun]: an act of will

 Remember Christ Jesus had already tested my Flesh and Will when I was born.  So now the first time he tests my Will on human kind is my mother. My mother was a loving, kind and gentle woman yet very stern. I am one of six siblings who is instilled with a great foundation, obedience being a strong point. We didn't have a lot but we never needed for anything. One of mom's golden rules was "waste not, want not," and "what I fix you will eat."  I was four years old, mom had prepared for dinner pork chops smothered in gravy mashed potatoes and beets. I ate most of the meat, well the potatoes and beets no thank you. She was annoyed that I had eaten most of the meat and touched nothing else. So she asked "why haven't you eaten the rest of your food?",  I remember answering "because it nasty, I don't like it and I don't want to."  How's that for sweet honesty and innocence.  It didn't set well with her and she said to me " hum well you're gonna eat it and you will sit there until you do, if it takes all night." So she shepherded the others off for baths and bed while I remained alone at the end of the table shuffling my food around my plate with my fork. It was now after seven thirty and she had returned to the kitchen to clean up. But first she warmed my food and sat at the table looking at me as if her presence would persuade me to change my mind. Glancing at the clock on the wall then staring at that awful food shuffling it around in my plate, feeling annoyed, confused and thinking why is she treating me this way.  Meanwhile Mom's back at the kitchen sink washing dishes and talking on the phone to grandma.  It's a quarter past eight I know it's past bedtime, 'cause bedtime was when the little hand is on the eight and the big hand is on the twelve. I hear her telling granny what I did then I hear her say, "she's a Willful ole child" glancing back at me, she didn't say stubborn or defiant. Finally the little hand was on the eight and the big hand is on the seven.  I'm getting sleepy my head is bobbing so I push the plate of food aside and rest my head on the table. She must have turned around and noticed me, I hear her tell grandma "I gotta go, this child  fell asleep at the table."  I felt her pick me up and cart me off to bed caressing my head along the way leaving that plate on the table.  I often wonder and concoct the things as a parent she must have been thinking. However well into adulthood with children of my own I did ask.  All I got was a very subtle chuckle,  the same chuckle I remember hearing as she carried me off to bed that night. I love you Mom always and forever R.I.P

Sunday coming I'll be writing about my Flat Line ordeal.  I'm privileged to share with you how "His Will"  along with "my Willpower"  had a big role in my story of survival.

IN THE BEGINNING !


His Grace and Mercy

Who am I.  November 7th 1955 a baby girl to a pair was born. After being born Dr.'s informed my parents that "the boy is doing fine but the little girl is in danger her lungs are deflated, she's struggling to breathe and there's nothing we can do to help her."  "What are her chances of living?" asked my parents. The doctors replied "50/50, she will live or die, she's a fighter, so we will see."  What the doctors and her parents didn't know was that little baby girl was God's Property. Heavenly Father was using me to learn them a lesson and testing my parent's faith. I remained in the hospital for a week as did my mom and twin brother. During that time all the doctors could tell my mom is she's still fighting but improving. They still had not got it and until this day I wonder if they ever did.  After passing my first test of many test-i-monies I was ready to go home and face the world.
Heavenly Father had started testing my flesh the day I was born for he'd already provided me with spirit and will. I've heard it said many times that God is stronger than the flesh  and I don't know how many of you out there truly believe it but I'm here to tell you I'm living proof.  People seldom say to me that I was destined for greatness since the day I was born (no truer statement)  I simply respond with a gentle smile while thinking to myself I know Father but I guess you felt the need to have me hear that so Amen.

Since that day I've flat lined (died) once.  I've been sheltered from death 5 times,  under the knife 13 times, survived ovarian cancer (without therapy) cured of tuberculosis, had 3 myocardial infarction (heart attacks). I'm often referred to by those who are close to me as "the sickly child" I smile within and think to myself how sad that they don't get it either. There were three people on this earth who realized my purpose two are deceased ( my parents ). The other my twin brother who witnessed two of my near death experiences.  And the beat goes on that is: (my service and my purpose). Some of you might be overwhelmed don't be his BLESSINGS COME IN MANY GUISES. 

My next couple of blogs I 'll be sharing with you some of my experience as frighting as they appear some are actually hilarious.

THE BEACON LIGHT ( Hope For The Oppressed )


"Elitist Ignorance" is how Dr. Tyler Perry phrased it and then he said, "let me tell you what I mean by that," and he broke it down. But before we get to that I need to mention remembering an interview Tyler did, don't recall the particular event but it was a star studded gala affair and the significance is; Tyler stated the room was filed with only prominent and elite folk, he felt out of place. He also said he questioned himself "why am I here?"  "I don't belong here.", so much so that he blurted it out. A female celebrity at the table answered you are here because you belong here. Christians know that when you and Christ Jesus have a "mono ei mono" relationship at any given time he may choose you as his vessel sometimes catching you off guard.  I don't believe they understood themselves what was really happening. Christ Jesus had just used them both. Salvation had just been placed among them in that room. Hey Tyler ever look back on that moment and ask yourself that question now? And then answer ( elitist ignorance ). Hear him address this topic in his speech.Yet another ancestral stigma of being so-called second class citizens. I've witnessed it all to often. However Dr. Perry breaks it down and now I understand it. Thank you for shedding light on that issue. In my opinion I think the only way to fix it is to lead by example which is exactly what he's doing. Tyler has stated that he's not running from us as a people he's going to help us. Lead us in my own words. What I love most about him is the manner in which he has opened his heart to be used by  Christ. I tell you every time I speak on him in this manner my eyes well up and my heart stops a second, then I cry tears of joy. There is one in position who holds hope for humanity.   Can you imagine President Obama riding through the hood? Before Tyler it would have been a joke.  Dr. Mr. Perry pointed out that he purchased Fort McPherson located in the lowest income family neighborhood in Atlanta how about that. His goal is to hire people in the area and train them to be successful. Great choice Tyler there are a lot of gifted folk in the area too. This man of strength, courage, conviction and  most of all love confessed when you achieve a certain level of success you are first celebrated.  Then as you get bigger you become a threat to your peers becoming a target. He guarded himself so he thought against outside intrusion  he was "taken aback" when they came from inside. But that's alright cause when JC has you, he got you. Psalms 23:5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: Thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.,  I must say Dr. Perry your light is truly shining and I'm noticing the glowing affect it has on some of your peers. I keep reflecting many are called but few are chosen. Just a reminder to always walk with your sword never lye it down not for a second. I know even though we walk in the light, we are still human. Blessed are the pure at heart Dr. Tyler.

In closing your TU speech was food for the soul. I know it fed my hungry soul and I'll be full for a long time. I just pray that others got it. My family and I we love you, support you and appreciate what you are doing! All things through Christ Jesus! Amen

EGOS/POWER



     So I guess our superheros are ego tripping now a days?!
As a youth growing up Superman, Batman, Iron Man and Captain America respectively used their own tactics. It wasn't a problem then. My question is why does everything have to be a battle or a power struggle?  Let me guess according to we the people it's all about who possess the most. Well if it's all about power,  a lot have forgotten who holds The Power and The Glory.  My belief is that his chosen are few.  Besides  aren't we struggling enough with our economy and other crisis, why struggle among ourselves?  It seems so senseless.  Are we barbarians seeking thrills and finding comfort in lies, deceit, scandal, killing and controversy?.

     Was thinking how nice it would be to sit down to watch a t.v show that is positively fulfilling again.  A show that we all could gain wisdom and encouragement from.  Whatever happened to shows with themes such as Little House On The Prairie, Lassie,  Seventh Heaven and Touched by an Angel?  Family oriented television dramas that portray endearing friendships, triumphs and loving families achieving and hanging on to faith, hope and charity. Remember them, Faith, Hope and Charity?.  Shows that left everlasting positive impressions on us. And I'm not talking about reality t.v shows for there is nothing real about them.

     It can't be just all about the money?  Morals I know you're out there.  Is there anyone who's willing to change the game.  The public majority are heavily influenced by public media especially our youth,  it's sad to say but true.

CAN YOU SMELL WHAT TYLER PERRY'S BAKING?! ( A Whole Lot To Say )


I smell a rat named Hanna!

Tyler Perry's HAHN Binge season five had me in a stupor metaphorically speaking.  After sobering up, my mind can't seem to focus on any other character but Hanna.  Sweet innocent holy-er than thou Hanna.

Did you all see how the "Christian" rummaged through Katheryn's house like a junkie needing a fix for her money. Hummmm. So I'm thinking look at the christian when out of her mouth comes I'm TAKING what's mines, the cry of the self righteous. Now I'm not sure what type of christian she claims to be but it's my belief that true christian hearted  folk are GIVERS sometimes to a fault who find it hard to accept or receive unless they've earned it, but never ever TAKERS.

It has also been one of my life's lessons that most Christian's were once the biggest Heathen's.  Then age or something traumatic in their life happens and they turn to or hide behind Father God.  It is also my opinion that these type folk as parents always try to relive their lives through their children, trying to right the wrongs of their past.

Having said that I'm remembering the look on Hanna's face in the scene outside of her house between she and Veronica after catching Veronica and Benny in the bedroom of her house. Hanna was spewing out slurs about Veronica having a dirty past life and Veronica stated that she'd bet Hanna had some dirt in her past too and that she would/could find it. Well......

I think that Hanna has a very colorful past and most of that color is black as soot. I also believe that Candace was badly abused as a child, why else would she despise her mother so refusing to be an unforgiving daughter?????

Anyways we'll just have to wait to see when Tyler finishes his next dish. He really served it up season five, a ten course meal and they were all delicious not to mention the deserts! I keep telling y'all don't sleep on Tyler!!!! Waiting for season 6

Prince Rogers Nelson - Money Don't Matter 2 Night

In lieu of all the (Controversy) and Conspiracy Theories that are
popping up surrounding Prince's death, I've done some delving and
discovered something quite interesting. This question plagues me. Could
Prince have foreseen his death date as early as this recording? For
those of you who know a bit about numerology Prince's motorcycle plates
in the movie Purple Rain read 96146. Once omitting the number 4 which
represents the month of April and is also recorded track number 4 for
this song on the album Diamonds & Pearls, and I'll explain the
song's significance momentarily. We are then left with the numbers 9616.
6+6+1=13+9=22. 22 being the day after his passing. Now to explain the
significance of the number 22 in this song.  Lyrics start "One more card
and it's 22 UNLUCKY for him Again." , so we know he's referring to the
game 21 Black Jack which is the day he passes 21st and unlucky
symbolizing he would he wouldn't see 22?.  So in a nutshell we have
96146. 4/21/16/ according to this song. Let me quote more of the lyrics.
"Money didn't matter yesterday and it sure doesn't matter to night
that's when you find out that you're better off making sure your Soul's
alright."  How powerful is that??? Could these daunting words be  the

PRINCE We Love You



 
In lieu of all the (Controversy) and Conspiracy Theories that are popping up surrounding Prince's death, I've done some delving and discovered something quite interesting. This question plagues me. Could Prince have foreseen his death date as early as this recording? For those of you who know a bit about numerology Prince's motorcycle plates in the movie Purple Rain read 96146. Once omitting the number 4 which represents the month of April and is also recorded track number 4 for this song on the album Diamonds & Pearls, and I'll explain the song's significance momentarily. We are then left with the numbers 9616. 6+6+1=13+9=22. 22 being the day after his passing. Now to explain the significance of the number 22 in this song.  Lyrics start "One more card and it's 22 UNLUCKY for him Again." , so we know he's referring to the game 21 Black Jack which is the day he passes 21st and unlucky symbolizing he would he wouldn't see 22?.  So in a nutshell we have 96146. 4/21/16/ according to this song. Let me quote more of the lyrics. "Money didn't matter yesterday and it sure doesn't matter to night that's when you find out that you're better off making sure your Soul's alright."  How powerful is that??? Could these daunting words be  the foresight of his own death and why there is no will???? Anyways it crossed my mind. (MIU) Music Is Universal

Binging On Tyler Perry's HAHN


I must start by saying that the Lord does work in mysterious ways his wonders to perform, for if I had afforded myself the privilege of a television it would have been short lived.

Mr. Perry I am speechless and you are off the chain!! It has been two to three days since I've finished my HAHN binge courtesy of Miss Winfrey, You, and Xfinity online services. Thank you all.

In hind sight I cannot imagine me watching seasons three and four via TV waiting and anticipating what's going to happen next week. And totally being blown away week after week. Suffice it to say my controlled high blood pressure would have been out of control and through the roof. Not to mention that I would probably be buried by now lol.

Tyler you and your HAHN characters are no joke. Scandalous I tell you. Usually I can get inside your head but Oscar threw me for a loop. In the beginning I suspected he was shady but  further along he was so convincing I thought Candice would finally have a good man in her life and turn herself around, especially with the aid of Candice's son and the money transfer I was wowed imagine that me suckered then boom left hook. Totally didn't see that one coming. Also to find out that goody two shoes David was behind it I was floored. Oh and David's ex the DA crazy.

Feeling kinda sad for sanctimonious Hana. She's a sheep in the real lions den with tigers and bears too, they keep trying to break her but she's holding her own. Thumbs up to her for now I wonder will she ever break?????

In a nut shell all of your characters have lost their minds. I have to get back on my A game. I'm going to invest in a TV to catch on season five!!!  I'll be watching you.

WORLD ( A fuc... Mess! )


                            WHAT A FREAK'N MESS


     I see the big picture and this is my sense of it.  I'm
going back to the beginning where it all started Old testament;
New testament. Having stated that I guess it's safe to say conflict
of interest. Old vs. New  Wisdom vs Naive. Father God I see it as
a case of bad parenting you should have stood firm with Baby Jesus and destroyed mankind. And Baby Jesus I guess it's safe to say Father knows best he could foresee all of this mess. Your gesture was kind and true yet not one of us is worthy of you.

   Holy Wars what an oxymoron. Christianity has become a circus within itself! We walk in death's shadow yet call it life. We don't realize we are already dead or as we would understand it as good as dead. We celebrate life and mourn death how backwards is that? Mankind's religious orders have mangled and tangled  "I AM'S words to suit their movements and now every order is in question.

     I must say I've even developed a different understanding for those who commit suicide. It's a weird way out. Anyways it appears that technology is advancing and humans are regressing especially the negro race. There was a time when we snarled at being recognized as black. We went from segregation to desegregation and now of our own doing back to segregation go figure.  Examples: Bet, Ebony, Essence, Black Google etc., using it as a facade. Our forefathers fought for equality not separability. Our world leaders are showing their true color green! Light-green, forest-green, emerald-green.

     As the human race we have become selfish, greedy, no respect for life or no respect for one another. Also God has been removed from just about every where schools, courtrooms, money (and rightly so) he's been pushed so far from the picture that he hardly exists except in controversy and turmoil. So on that note I think that Father God is pretty tired of us and Baby Jesus. Two thousand yrs is a long time to let one prove himself ?.  "And that's just my 2 cents."

In My Mind ( Beatrix Cobb )


                    The SoburDruncs

The SoburDruncs in my mind would be a night-time television drama spin off  of the movie “Beatrix Cobb”.

 Beatrix Cobb! I’ll assimilate a timeline of her life events then conclude with a synopsis.

1916-Born Beatrix Mae Cobb - Rosehill NC- Parents Leon and
         Maggie Cobb - Father- Saw Miller Worker and Gambler
         Mother- Seamstress

1919-Age three prohibition starts and Beatrix  is learning to write
         and read.

1921-Age five father begins sexually abusing her

1923-Age seven she witnesses the murder of her mother. 
         Beatrix tells her mother what her father is doing to her.
         Maggie confronts Leon they struggle Maggie is killed. Leon
         gets away with murder and blames Beatrix for her mother’s
         death.                                          
        
1924-Age eight the abuse stops. Leon is remorseful feeling sorry
          for Beatrix having no mother, Leon remarries. Beatrix gets a
           Stepmother who is good to her.

1925-Age nine Anne ( stepmother ) is with child, father looses his
          job, heavy drinking, gambling and abuse starts again.

1926-Age ten Beatrix becomes a big sister to Elizabeth - Delivered
          by Young Midwife - Miss Alley Fields

1928-Age twelve Anne dies and Beatrix is left to care for her two
          year old sister

1929-Age thirteen Beatrix is pawned off by her father Leon to
          Bootlegger Jimmy Toad to settle his drinking and gambling
          debt. Unbeknownst to her or Toad she was also impregnated.
          The abuse continues only this time it's Jimmy Toad. Later
          that year Beatrix murders her father getting away with it.
          The only eye witness is three year old sleepy Elizabeth.
          Mr. Leon's body was found the next day by Alley Fields.
          Alley took care of Elizabeth after Beatrix was pawned and
          after Leon's death. Could Alley have witnessed Leon's
          murder too?  Jimmy Toad has no clue Beatrix is a
          murderess. Toad also promises to treat her more kindly
          when they both learn she is with child.  

1930-Age 14 Beatrix gives birth to a daughter, she and Jimmy
         assumes to be his. The baby is born looking like Leon.
         To both their surprise, disgust and torment they hate the
         baby. She hates herself and doesn’t care for Jimmy. She
         tries smothering the baby but her heart wouldn't let her.
         She attempts to kill herself after Jimmy nearly beats her to
         death. Jimmy assumes that Beatrix knew she was pregnant
         when she was traded to him.  Jimmy soon realizes Beatrix
         is too naive to have known. This is Leon's plan Jimmy
         declares. It's as if he's getting even from his grave.  Jimmy
         swears revenge. Beatrix names daughter Leona against
         Jimmy's will.
                             
1934-Age 18 The year after prohibition ends Jimmy starts abusing
         Leona to get back at Leon. Being mother and sister Beatrix
         takes four year old Leona up North and leaves her on the
         doorstep of a home she feels content with. She is gone for a
         month.  Upon her return she tells Jimmy that he'll never
         find her. She also makes him promise he will never search
         for the child. Also if he changes his wicked ways she'll
         marry him. She explains she's grown fond of him and can
         learn to love him as her husband.  Jimmy loves Beatrix, she's
         a beautiful young woman in spite of her past.  They stage
         their deaths. Jimmy has a modest fortune. They assume new
         identities vowing to bury their dreadful past and start anew.
         They flee to Savannah GA as Mr. & Mrs. SoburDruncs     
             
1935-Age 19 Prestigious Beatrix arrives in Savannah GA with
          husband but under her new name Mrs. Mae SoburDrunc
               
                                            Synopsis

        As years past the SoburDruncs become a pillar in their community.  Rearing  four children two boys and two girls, who grew to become outstanding citizens of the community. Lawyer, Doctor, Chief of Police, and Judge. Soon after the youngest daughter is appointed ADA Jimmy SoburDruncs dies suddenly. His untimely death takes a toll on his family especially Mrs.  Mae.  She begins sinking. Successful children and no grandchildren it was hard for Mae to keep her thoughts off  her past life. It is her two sisters that trouble her. So she sets out to find them.
     
        Meanwhile back in Virginia with a twist of fate Elizabeth and Leona attend the same college becoming best of friends.  Leona becomes a Teacher and Elizabeth-Psychiatrist-PHD. The troubled women discover that neither know their families and go on a quest together to find them.
   
       Simultaneously in Savannah Mae begins searching for her sister's that took her various places over a lengthy time, but only lead to dead ends. Mae holds a family meeting with children confessing she has two lost sister's who she's been searching for and doesn't want help from them. Up in age and failing health, she ends her search and instead writes memoirs. Leaving strict instructions to her baby daughter (ADA). Should I pass away and passages lead them to me see that these sensitive papers reach their hands only.   

     Back in Virginia Elizabeth and Leona’s search lead them to a midwife  in North Carolina. Birth records of Negro families during the early 1900’s were recorded in the family’s Bible by the midwife. The women find Miss Fields but it’s one month too late. Alley took the Cobb’s family Bible among a few other trinkets from the home and instructed her daughter that if a lady name Elizabeth ever comes asking for me see to it that she gets these trinkets and tell her in these words “I tried to wait lil Lizzy”  The name lil Lizzy slightly  jogs her memory. They learned from this information that Lizzy has a big sister somewhere named Beatrix Cobb and her father and mother’s names and dates of births & deaths. Leona is happy for Elizabeth that she may finally find her family. But as they’re leaving town they see Miss Alley’s daughter who mentions she forgot to tell them that town talk was Beatrix had married. Leona comforts Lizzy. Continuing their search back at home they stumble upon the location of an old chapel turned registry in the town of Scottlandneck ( It’s a town that links NC to VA) that may have records of Beatrix’s marriage. They take a trip there where they find more than what they are looking for. An elderly woman greets them with a smile she knew it had to be them after hearing the life story of Mrs. SoburDruncs which she vowed to take to her grave. She tells them a woman Beatrix Mae SoburDruncs who lives in Savannah GA over a year ago was right here looking for you two. She said she remembers well because the name was so unique she would spell it over and over to herself so she would not forget.

     The day had come that Elizabeth was going to meet her sister. Little did they know it would be on her death bed. Devoted Leona along for support had no idea  this meeting would impact her life too. Beatrix’s bedside a tearful occasion. Beatrix orders her children to leave the room. She presents Elizabeth with an envelope and then she presents Leona with an envelope to both their surprise. Beatrix looks Elizabeth in the eyes and says “Yes I am your big sister” and then she looks at Leona and says “Yes I am your Mother and Your big sister. Leona faints. Elizabeth is in shock and Beatrix nods her head my sisters. It’s all in the letters. Promise me lil Lizzy these children of mine must never know nothing other than we are sisters and takes her final breath.
Elizabeth lets out a whale of a scream!!!!

                                        The End


*FootNotes When Beatrix is at the chapel in Scottlandneck she spends the day with elderly woman telling her life story sparing no details
          
             Yes Alley Field does witness the murder-she felt he got his just rewards and took it to her      grave.  
              Alley and Leon have a daughter as a result of him raping her.
              Jimmy Toad never suspects Beatrix of murder
              Johnny Ridge- The Town Loan Shark- Beatrix- Biological
              Father-
              Leon prostituted Maggie when he needed money.
              Jimmy SoburDruncs dies of a sudden heart attack after
              daughter's ADA ceremony overwhelmed with joy.
              Mr. & Mrs. SoburDruncs ruled their family with an iron
              fist.  Mae is a woman of stature and Jimmy a man of
              caliber
              Beatrix Mae Cobb-Toad- SoburDruncs never drank a
              drop of alcohol

****            SoburDruncs  pronounced Sober Drunks
                    SoburDruncs in plural  SoburDruncses


               *The name SoburDruncs was contrived by Beatrix Last part a constant reminder of her past and Sober as in sobriety is what she and husband built a strong family foundation on renouncing alcohol*
