And you couldn’t have that special day the way your friends do – you know, wear the ring on your finger and have it mean the same thing as everybody else. Just put yourself in that person’s shoes. It makes me feel sick to my stomach …. When I shared a picture of my tattoo on my Twitter page and said, ‘ALL LOVE is equal,’ a lot of people mocked me – they said, ‘What happened to you? You used to be a Christian girl!’ And I said, ‘Well, if you were a true Christian, you would have your facts straight. Christianity is about love.’ The debate resulted in a lot of threats and hate mail to people who agreed and disagreed with me. At one point I had to say, ‘Dude, everyone lay off.’ Can’t people have friendly debates about sensitive topics without it turning into unnecessary threats?” - Pop star Miley Cyrus on her marriage equality tattoo - - - - - - - - - - -

Watch: 19-Year-Old Iowan Zach Wahls' Electrifying Speech in Support of His Gay Moms

"Actually, I was raised by a gay couple and I'm doing pretty well." 
- Zach Wahls

The writer of Towerload couldn't have stated it any better when he wrote on his blog, "The bigots need to just give up now because teens like Zach Wahls are the reason they will eventually lose."

I can't and will never understand how one person or a group of people can rob another human being of a fundamental right.  It's just mind-boggling to me.  "We held these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal," is simply false, and it was false back when it was written.

Slavery was running rampant, and almost every President, up until Lincoln owned slaves; George Washington himself had over one hundred.  The point I'm trying to make is that everyone has rights in this country. Not just one particular group or person.

When I watched this video, I couldn't help but shed tears as I watched this young man describe what it means to be a family, what it means for him to be a son of two gay parents, who love and cherish their children. I don't understand why there is so much hatred from the Republicans who wish to overturn everything we try so hard to live for.  All we want is to be treated equally, be given the rights bestowed upon us for being born in this country. 

OMG Hilarious!

Rolling Blackouts Will Engulf Our Region!

The Electric Reliability Council of Texas has ordered rolling blackouts during the arctic blast, according to Click2Houston.com.  So if you're not warm enough yet, you're not about to get any warmer.  The agency states that this is all due to a generation shortage.  So while I'm keeping warm @ MD Anderson Cancer Center, because hospitals and nursing homes are excluded from the blackouts, my love Ryan and our puppies may be freezing their buns off for 45 minutes at most.

The agency states they have no idea how long the blackouts will be needed, but the forecast for the next few days doesn't look too good. I'm so glad Friday is my day off.  For those that work on Friday, don't lose hope. Seeing that things look more grim as the weekend approaches, there's a possibility for closures.

Total Eclipse of The Heart - The Literal Version

Bonnie Tyler recorded a song back in 1982 that became her biggest hit to date, Total Eclipse of the Heart.  The song peaked at No. 1 in the United States, Australia, Canada, and the United Kingdom.  To this day, the song is as popular as it was then, and is still being played on the radio.

All that aside, the video accompanying this song was the most bizarre thing I had ever seen. If I were to produce a movie which included soft core porn, a twin peaks and poltergeist storyline behind it, I would come up with this truly hot mess of a music video.  Nevertheless, the video is hilarious to watch.  You'll never see Bonnie Tyler the same way again.

Watch the video below.

A Chart That Reaches Out

A reader from the site I grabbed this chart from made a comment, and submitted his very own chart.  In his message he asked for help for a friend of his...  So I thought I'd help by getting the word out.

"Hi, I know you get a ton of submission daily but my friend’s little sister is in dire need of a blood marrow transplant and the problem is, is that there are no matching donors. It is a very simple procedure if we could just get the word out. Please check out helpuma.com and i even made a chart for y’all. Thank you so much!"

OMG Hilarious!

Houston's Very Own Floating Condos!

What does Houston need to make it an even more popular destination? Floating Condos! I read about this on ABC13's website. River Cities, the company which is located in Kemah, say the ship has 180 condos, restaurants, hot tubs, a golf course and will feature a landing pad for medevac helicopters.  The ship, which will be housed in Houston, will cruise the coastal waterways along with the nation's rivers.

"After a pleasant day of cruising the waterways, we will have cars and buses ready and waiting for your shore travel; the choice of activities will be up to you," the company says on its website.

The price isn't cheap! It will only cost you $300,000 to $500,000 to own one. So start saving now or invest more in your 401K!  They already have 25 percent of the condos sold; once they hit 90 percent they start constructing your dream home on water.
