Barnes & Noble -Book Signing and Discussion -New Hope Commons Durham N.C.- Saturday January 26, 2013 1:00p.m.-4p.m.
**What a long week. Going back to my out of the house job after being home sick for 2 weeks was exhausting. I have to get through Friday which will be a lot easier if I think about all the fun I am going to have with my Friday Fragments family. If you have not yet been brave enough to participate in a blog hop this would be a great place to start. Mrs. 4444 is a lovely host.
**I am proud of myself. Last weekend I visited and commented on every blog linked up for Friday Fragments, before midnight on Sunday! I am going for a repeat…
**Now if I could get to all of the insecure writers…what a list this one is. I’m glad it is only once a month!! If you are a writer or an aspiring writer this is another great group to hop around with. The link is on my sidebar. Hundreds participate.
**What a crazy news week in Philly. We have a new head couch for our Eagles. Chip Kelly looks an awful lot like a younger version of our old head coach Andy Reid. I hope he does well. Are any of you familiar with him?
**A woman dropped her 5 -year -old daughter off at school the other morning at 8:20 am. At 8:30 am a woman walked into the classroom dressed in a full Berka which covered her face, said she was the child’s mother and took her out of the school. When the daycare bus came to pick the child up after school and she was not there they called the mother. FINALLY at 8:30 pm an amber alert was issued. At 4:30 in the morning, a freezing cold and sleeting morning, a man was walking to catch his bus to work. He heard wimpering from a nearby playground. He found the little one Naked except for a t’shirt and just shivering. She told him she ran away from the people who took her. She has been released from the hospital. This whole scenario is just not sitting well with me…
**They are bringing out some heavy hitters for the movie Happy Valley. Al Pacino is going to play Joe Paterno . Brian DePalma is directing. It is the true story of the sex scandal that rocked our beloved Penn State and continues to shock us. It is an awful story but one I feel strongly has to be told.
**We had our monthly Press Club luncheon on Wednesday afternoon. Celebrity Boxings Damon Feldman was there. I didn’t get a chance to meet him because I was busy the entire time trying to catch up with some friends. I hope he comes back next month.
The Celebrity Boxing Federation is owned by Damon Feldman. Damon has promoted over 55 Celebrity Fights including celebrities such as his friend, the late Rodney King, Tanya Harding, Jose Canseco, Willie Aames, Michelle Mcgee, Octomom, Danny Bonaduce, Michael Lohan, and many other celebrities.
“In a spectacular move, Billionaire Media Mogul Alki David has offered Chris Brown and Aubrey Drake Brown (“Drake) the most phenomenal purse in celebrity boxing history. Alki made the announcement with celebrity boxing promoter Damon Feldman.”
**Speaking of boxing, I met the owner of a gallery a few towns over and she told me she is having an exhibit of ‘boxing gloves’ paintings. I find this fascinating, am I crazy?
Our own Celebrity Boxing Champ, Michael
**I am leaving Wednesday for Durham, North Carolina. I have a book signing at the Barnes & Noble at New Hope Commons. I am getting excited about meeting some people from facebook. That never gets old. I am also going to spend some time with my friend Joelle who is fighting cancer. She lives about an hour from the B & N. I am going to visit with her and her kids for the weekend. My good friend Tina is going with me. Please keep Joelle and her family in your prayers.
**This really troubles me..lol..
