Update! Rodriguez Sentenced To 40 Yrs Behind Bars!
Here in The Lone Star, we just got thru our own versión of a Stand Your Ground Law. I thought Florida made that shyt up; I was shocked to know Texas evidently has one too.
This Raul Rodriguez invoked this shyt when he shot and killed 36 yr old Kelly Danaher and wounded three other people. This mofo had a video camera, filmin’ as he was walkin’ up on the people standin’ in the man’s driveway.
Kelly, a Harris County school teacher, was havin’ a birthday party for his wifey, Mindy. Her birthday will never be the same…
On the vid, Rodriguez, a retired firefighter and already described by neighbors as a bully, can be heard sayin’ over and over, “I am in fear for my life! Get back, get back!”
Nobody ain’t movin’ on the vid. Next thing you hear: Shots Fired
His ass was convicted, and is in court for sentencin’ as we speak. He’s facin’ 5-to- Life. I hope he gets every second of the max.
I hope the Trayvon Martin case ends the same way. I hope Florida takes a lesson from Texas and ignores that stupid-ass law, and convicts George Zimmerman of 2nd Degree Murkin’.
Both of these cretins shot and killed unarmed men, and tried (and tryin’!) to blame it on this ancient, bullshyt-ass law some cowboy wrote in the 1800′s…
One down, one to go.

This post is dedicated to my fav neice, Tiffani Chavon Wright. Today is her birthday.
Tiffani is special; she has a heart of gold , sometimes way to big for her own good. Tiff is ‘Momma” to all her lil sisters and brothers (and anybody else who needs her), and always ready and willin’ to help no matter if it means gettin’ out of her bed at dark:30 to handle it.
When I first took the job at Cingular (now AT&T) I came to stay with Tif. She opened her home to me, and didn’t ask for a thin dime. Cooked her ass off, tho.
And I know it’s hard to live with someone who is 20+ yrs older than you, and not want to kill them, but she did.
Her soul is pure and undriven; she loves directly from the ♥, no matter who you be, where you been, and what your about. Everybody gets two- or three chances with Tif…
::isn't she gorgeous?::
She just special. And I love her to death.
Happy CDay, Baby Gurl!~
A Good Woman…
A good woman is proud. She respects herself and others.
She is aware of who she is. She neither seeks definition from the person she is with, nor does she expect them to read her mind. She is quite capable of articulating her needs.
A good woman is hopeful. She is strong enough to make all her dreams come true. She knows love, therefore she gives love. She recognizes that her love has great value and must be
reciprocated. If her love is taken for granted, it soon disappears.
A good woman has a dash of inspiration and a dabble of endurance.
She knows that she will at times have to inspire others to reach their full potential. A good woman knows her past, understands her present and forces toward the future.
A good woman does not live in fear of the future because of her past. Instead, she understands that her life experiences are
merely lessons meant to bring her closer to self-knowledge and unconditional self-love.
This is Tif*A*Nay*Nay…

Today, Tupac would have turned 39 years old.
The 2nd Annual Benefit Concert Celebratin’ the Life of Tupac Shakur (hosted by mom Afeni Shakur and Mike Epps) will be held in Atlanta GA tonight, with performances by Mike, Rick Ross, Bun B, Too Short, Roscoe Dash (the one with the haircut!), “Pill“, and many more.
100% of the proceeds go to benefit the Tupace Amaru Shakur Foundation.
Advance tickets no longer available folks. Since IT IS the day of the event (gates open at 7pm, show begins at 8pm), if you go, you gon’ have to break off 35 chips ($35). To me it’d be worth it!

Miss Janet just turned 44, and celebrated by outtin’ her new chic-n-short ‘do. This pic (courtesy of TMZ) was taken in London yesterday… She’s joinin’ Solange Knowles in sayin’, “Hair dont define me and who I am…”
I think she looks lovely*
Ms. Janet had been spotted this last month or so, with Wissam Al Mana, a 35-year-old high-profile, wealthy, Qatari businessman. Wissam is the young managing director of Al Mana Retail, a luxury corporate group in the Middle East.
Snitches say this relationship is ‘exclusive’.

…and on that day in 1911, my Gran, Sister Isabell Jones was born. Today is her birthday.
The Queen went home on March 2, 2008, at the age of 97 years old, almost 100 years on this earth. I still miss Gran like it was just yesterday she was sittin’ on that porch, rockin’ and lookin’ out at what the world had become, ’in her time’….
She woulda been 99 years old today, almost that ‘Hunnit’ we talked about. I remember tellin’ my Gran -tho by then she was ‘down in her cups’ -not really recognizin’ folks, just gettin old… that when she turned 100 years old, I would come from where ever I was, and throw her the biggest party to celebrate her life.
I’m still sad that I didn’t get to throw that party…
HAPPY ALMOST 100 BIRTHDAY, GRAN!
♥I still love & miss you♥

It looks like Lil Wayne has been given an extra special treat for his 27th birthday this year. And when I say extra special, I mean extra special! Jewelery that is worth $1.2 milli.
Weezy was 27 on Sept. 27th – (Same day as mine…)
According to reports, Lil Wayne’s record boss decided to top the briefcase filled with $1 mil cash that he gave him for his last birthday, by giving the superstar very expensive jewelery instead.
Bryan “Birdman” Williams, CEO of Cash Money Records, apparently brought his baby a Chopard watch that is worth a staggering $1 million and and black Chopard chain, that is valued at $200,000. He even had a cake sprinkled with diamonds.
Dontcha’ kinda wish you were him?

Today My dad is 76 years old. I thank God he is celebrating this day Bear with me while I get mushy… ♥
Henry James once defined life as that predicament which precedes death, and certainly nobody owes you a debt of honor or gratitude for getting him into that predicament. But a child does owe his father a debt, if Dad, having gotten him into this peck of trouble, takes off his coat and buckles down to the job of showing his daughter how best to crash through it. It is not flesh and blood but the heart which makes us father and daughter..
::my dad was somethin’ back in his day, wasn’t he?::
