Dear ( ME )

Movie Overdose – LOL

The Best Man Holiday movie

I have already seen this many WAY too many times that I would like to actually admit ….. ESPECIALLY since it only came out last week on Thursday….but to me it was indeed just that good…… Okay here is my theory with this movie..

Movie was INSANELY good – they need to have at least 2 more at the least then CLOSE THE STORY. Ride the wave while it is high…make Part 3 RIGHT NOW while the momentum is high and we are all watering at the mouth! (summer 2014)  Then make the 4th one with everyone READY for the story to end but do it with a big bang! ( 2016 )


I Am Currenting Loving New York Legislation


If New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg gets his way, stores won’t be able to publicly display tobacco products and will have to keep cigarettes under the counter or behind curtains.

The legislation announced today is the latest public-health crackdown by the mayor, whose ban on super-sized sugary soft drinks was shot down by a judge last week.

The proposed law would “prohibit display of tobacco products” in most retail shops,. “Such displays suggest smoking is a normal activity and invite young people to experiment with tobacco.” It would be the first of its kind in the nation.

A second law would impose new rules to make it harder to sell smuggled cigarettes.

These laws would protect New Yorkers, especially young and impressionable New Yorkers. The New York Association of Convenience Stores, which has 1,600 members, called the proposed ban on displays “absurd” but I totally agree with Mayor Michael Bloomberg seriously.

He said he hoped the City Council would reject the bill after it’s introduced later this week. If it passes, the National Association of Tobacco Outlets predicts it will be overturned by the courts.

Sara Palin mocked Mayor Bloomberg via banning certain sized soft drinks….but she just wants to stay relevant…


YES!!! There are a great deal of people who DISAGREE with the government being able to get involved like this…. A great deal of them are indeed talking about a basic right under the Constitution.  They also feel that if you do this with cigarettes and tobacco products, what else is going to have to be out of view? Wine and spirits? It’s a very slippery slope. Well I look at it like this, yes the government is saying or at least trying to wean people from smoking – drinking and a hosts of other things and I think that it is a good idea.

If I was an insurance company and I would raise the premiums on people that smoke etc….so then what? Are you going to KEEP your medical insurance or drop it because you do not agree? You want to smoke and if you get sick..get lung diseases / cancer now you want the insurance carrier to pay for TONS of testing and expensive treatments because of a PERSONAL BAD HABIT that you chose to do that is not good for your health!!!!

New York City officials, though, said the point of the display ban isn’t to prevent kids from buying cigarettes, which is already illegal; the idea is that lowering exposure to the products reduces the chances a young person will try smoking in the first place.

Mayor Bloomberg has made public-health campaigns a hallmark of his administration and boasted that life expectancy in the city is up three years since 2001. He has also crusaded against salt in restaurant foods and junk food in vending machines and required calorie counts on fast-food menus.

A new policy sharply limiting the sale of 16-ounce sugary drinks was supposed to take effect last week, but a judge put a stop to it, ruling it was arbitrary and capricious.

Family, Helping Self..., Inspiration

Missing My Dad, My Father, My Friend, My Inspiration

 Happy Birthday Dad! I still cannot believe that you have been gone for 4 years this past Feb 2011! I have finally started taking note to my bday……I mean you have to cut me some slack right? My bday is Feb 12th and you went home with the Lord on Feb 18th…GEESH!

Just thinking for evertime I missed my father and I wrote a blog, it would be at least 3 blogs a day! Today is his bday and he would have been hmm? The big 80! That cancer is something! The cancer did not take him but God just used to cancer to bring him “home”…..  not a crying and mushy blog – but  I had to acknowledge my daddy’s day. I surely need to find another photo of us because I look every bit of a teenager and he is looking like he does not want to smile… Thinking of all the families that have living relatives and they are not speaking to one another over foolish things. Or even some individuals in my family who allow small things to disrupt what God would want for them and us as a family. I sometimes want to just #GRAB  #SHAKE #YELL #PULL them and remind them all that WE ARE COLEMAN’S and that name alone should mean something!! However, just like anything else in the world, the individual has to be ready “to connect” with their destiny! Welp, maybe this was why #teamValarie was his favorite! LOL

Praying for all of the families who are beginning their mourning process because it indeed #never stops. It has been 4 years this year since my “good beloved” Father went home to be with the Lord and it feels as if it just happened a few months ago. See you later “Daddy Joe”
