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 - - - - - - - - - - -

Lori is Alive - She Has To Be!

So aside from me, everyone, including Ryan seems to think that Lori is dead in the popular TV show, The Walking Dead.  It's been over a year since I pleaded with everyone to watch this series.  If you've never seen it - well - there's not much else I can say.

Here are the reasons I think Lori is Not Dead, or a Zombie.  She's still out there somewhere!

Little Carl, bless his heart, would never shoot his own mother.  I'm sorry, but as tough as he thinks he is, he doesn't have the cojones to shoot his mother's brains out.  Then there's the bloated zombie, really?  Talk about bad television.  When have you seen a bloated zombie?

When Rick finds the body, all he finds is hair in the zombie's mouth.  He also finds a bullet, but it's clean - there's no blood on it.  Furthermore when Rick shoots and stabs the zombie, there are no body parts pulled out of it's stomach.  No bones anywhere! That's kinda strange to me.  

And if you're one to follow the comic books, Hershel, Carl and Glenn are all dead in those books - this also leaves me to wonder whether Lori will return as a Zombie or is Alive!

Each Picture Is Just Like The Other, 200 Calories Each

Here's a beautiful picture of 200 calories.  Yep each of these is just like the other; they each represent 200 calories.  Being that I've lost 57 pounds over the last 7-8 months, I never followed the recommended 2000-2500 daily caloric intake.  Are you kidding me? I probably would have never lost weight, but others seem to have a different opinion on that. 

Click on the picture to see an even bigger picture.

Some foods have significantly more Calories than others but what does the difference actually look like. Each of the photographs below represents 200 Calories of the particular type of food; the images are sorted from low to high calorie density. When you consider that an entire plate of broccoli contains the same number of Calories as a small spoonful of peanut butter, you might think twice the next time you decide what to eat. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the average adult needs to consume about 2000 - 2500 Calories to maintain their weight. In other words, you have a fixed amount of Calories to "spend" each day; based on the following pictures, which would you eat? - wiseGeek

A Violation of the Temporal Prime Directive Occurred at the Oscars Last Night

You know I couldn't go without mentioning the long, long, long, long opening segment Seth MacFarlane gave at the Oscars last night.  All the buzz today is the violation of the Temporal Prime Directive by Captain James T. Kirk when he came back to tell Seth he was the worst Academy Awards host ever. LOL.  It was definitely a treat to watch being that I'm a Star Trek fan and all. :-)
