Santa’s in Australia's largest city have been told not to use Father Christmas's traditional "ho ho ho" greeting because it may be offensive to women, it was reported Thursday. Sydney's Santa Clauses have instead been instructed to say "ha ha ha" instead.

One disgruntled Santa told the newspaper a recruitment firm warned him not to use "ho ho ho" because it could frighten children and was too close to "ho", a US slang term for prostitute.
- OK, I can’t take it…the world is crazy! Now, I’m no santa fan, but COME ON PEOPLE, “ho ho ho” is a term that’s been used for Europeans introduced santa to the world…now it’s a term associated with the defaming of women; this is completely laughable.

Teen Charged in Cop Shooting
16-year-old apparently squatting in a abandoned house-turned-drug den was identified yesterday as the alleged shooter who wounded two plain clothes narcotics officers Tuesday night. According to investigators he allegedly sold crack from the home. The teen is being charged as an adult with nine counts of attempted murder, was taken into custody after allegedly shooting two officers in the legs through a door as they tried entering the house to serve a warrant to another man.

- NOW, this makes the SECOND young black man who’s thrown their life away by shooting/killing a police officer. The other infamous young man (shown above) was a high-school dropout and drug addict.

- I’ve grown tired of being agitated and frustrated by the insidious acts practiced by our young people while the community watches and waits. WHAT ARE WE PREPARED TO DO! WHO’S ACCOUNTABLE FOR THESE CONDITIONS! Every time I turn around a new “worthwild” organization is springing up and doing NOTHING! With all the non-profit do-gooder associations running around within the city of Philadelphia, why are we still faced with the SAME GROWING dilemma’s?

- Politicians don’t care; So called “Black Owned” businesses and corporations don’t seem to REALLY care (except for their OWN benefit), so who is to bring about the change? Where will the help come from? Yeah, I know…many questions with too few answers! I’m just “Debbie Morgan – TIRED”! (from Love and Basketball…when she tiredly exclaimed, “I’m just too TIRED”)

Just do what I do!!!

I've always been one of those people who expect others to act, say and do as I would, and I'm usually shocked everytime to get something different. I'm very logical (to me) so things just appear right which means everyone else is just doing WRONG... lol. Ok, I'm still dealing with the fact that MAYBE, just MAYBE; dare I even say...that I'm wrong (GASP)! Well, IF the world is right and I'm "wrong" in thoughts they become what's popularly known as opinions RIGHT?

With that being agreed upon, I'm going to share some personal "opinions" lol.

1). I have a SERIOUS problem with people who want to "play" in ways you don't approve calling you names and when you have to check them...they say, "I was only playing DAG...I know not to play with you." they then act as if YOU'RE WRONG... well in my OPINION, they're WRONG.

2). Men who want to convince you that you're shallow for not wanting to date them because they're, oh say...4 feet tall. Well, kind may think I'm wrong, but in my OPINION, you're WRONG.

3). People who'd take something of yours...something really small oh say a pen, and when you really want it back...they say..."GESH, you're making a big deal over that pen." Then OF COURSE, they spread it around as if you have issues and guessed it WRONG, but we all know the better...RIGHT? RIGHT!

4). Those people (even your children) who just don't seem to stop getting on your nerves UNTIL you scream or snap...then they say..."DAG, you must be in a bad mood." WHAT... I wasn't until YOU, but I guess I'm WRONG...I'll keep my opinion to myself.

5). People who do what THEY want to do for YOU (against your wishes) and get mad when you don't appreciate it: examples; buying you gifts you don't want...taking you places you didn't ask to go and don't want to be, but act like they did you a favor.

p1: "I've got some errands to run today"
p2: "I'll take you."
p1: "naw, that's cool,I've just got a lot of business to handle. thanks"
p2: "NO, I'm not doing anything today and I want to get out, so please."
p1: "Well, it's stuff I really needed to handle alone."
p2: "I'll just wait in the car."
p1; "DAG, well ok"

AFTER ALLLLL THAT they'll either say something about gas money, or complaine about how long it's taking or how many stops you've made OR talk about how great a friend they are because they take you everywhere. WRONG...WRONG...WRONG, but that's just my opinion.

What things have people thought you WRONG for , but in your're RIGHT?

Well now, WHAT – Life, Love and the Pursuit of happiness!
Have you ever been in a place where you didn’t know if you were coming or going…couldn’t say how you got there, or if you even wanted to leave? Well, I like to call that place Something’s Gotta Give…where your hope just seems to be for SOMETHING, ANYTHING and EVERYTHING!

Ahhh, the place of many mistakes…many wrong turns…too many “Oops!” I’ve come a long way, but seem further behind then where I started…how’s that even possible (don’t answer that). This is the place where I tell my story; a funny, frightening tale of sorts; a story suitable for Grims Fairytales - FAIRYTALES – where I’ve made my heaven. I was always a dreamer, which is why I liked long walks alone…alone is where I dream up dreams and things. These are the insides of my mind…thinking and wondering about whatever until reality screams at me…blows its minty breath in my face and causes me to focus on my sons, my home, my job, my career, my bills…my LIFE!

I’m sure you’re asking “where’s she going with this?”…I DON’T KNOW, but SOMETHING’S GOTTA GIVE!

I should laugh, but I won’t…but what’s up with four letter words beginning in “L” (scary). I’m usually immune to this…well probably since I’ve been in love with the same two men for like 10 years…now I can laugh…ha-ha! Yeah, I know that’s crazy and my mind goes back back and forth and forth…neither may be right, or one more than the other, but that’s what I’ve known of love (for a man), aside for the love I have for Idris Alba  Fortunately for me, this really isn’t an area I stress over…aside from wanting to go on the occasional date, but other then that, I’m pretty cool, or has the immunity effected me so that I CAN’T change directions; I can’t move my feet from it’s cool place. Have I, Will I let the newness of love pass me by because I’m stuck so deep in the past? I’ll just have to wait UNTIL!

Well, I’ve already said you’ve got to live your life like it’s golden…it’s going to be what we make it, so I’ve made myself content as I wait to go further. What would make me happy RIGHT NOW is career related. No, I don’t like this job, but it’s a stepping stone…not really stepping into what I REALLY want to do, but you can never have too many connections.
What do you REALLY want to do?
Believe it or not…I just kinda figured this out…I’d like to be a Youth Program Director…I’d like to create programs designed for the growth of our children…that’s all and I’d be happy UNTIL!

Man, it feels real good to uncloud your allows for better focus. This is art…the art of expression…the ability to convey one’s thoughts, even if nobody else understands it.

To make better sense of this; what thing/area seems to have you stuck in a hazy daze of perplexity? What something has got to give for you?

"Mama, I wanna sing!"

This is a journey into the sound of one of my favorite voices...I absolutely LOVE this dude and he's been around a longggg time; how many of you remember THIS SHOW:


I couldn't post any of the videos from his first cd, but I loved it..."Where You Are" and "Stop by" are the most popular ones and can be viewed on Youtube. I thought of this title when listening to one of his songs; it made me wonder what he said to his mother to get him started, or did he even HAVE to say anything to it just something she noticed in her baby. See what can happen when you pay attention to the talents of your children!!!

NOW - An interview into his new project.

I love his's my feel good; I'm off to get this new cd "Wine & Spirits"
