Wacky mother-of-three, paints her entire house pink, but then has to have it re-decorated in “blue” after she gives birth to a boy!
Ok this is just plain crazy. I to love the color pink, but painting my entire house in pink would be just plain crazy! If you have not already heard the story of Wanda Matthews, 25, from Bolton, Greater Manchester, this lady was so addicted to pink that she painted everything in her house pink. As if that wasn’t nuts enough, after the the birth of her son Kaiden, she re-decorated her entire house in blue! Wanda even went as far as to having a complete makeover from changing the color of her hair, to changing the color of her entire wardrobe. Wow!
Wanda was so addicted to buying clothes, make-up, wigs, accessories that she spent a fortune on her appearance every month. Often she spent hours at a time getting ready for a night out.
But since giving birth to her son, and becoming a full-time mother, those days are far behind her.

I just had to share this article about a Russian artist named Sergei Bobkov (who makes animal sculpture’s from wood-chips) with all of you. His work is so beautiful. I would love to have one of his sculpture’s in my house.

Sergei Bobkov, demonstrates a sculpture of a life-sized bird he made out of woodchips. Who thought making something out of woodchips could look so gorgeous. The artist who makes this master pieces is Sergey Bobkov talented secondary school teacher who skillfully turns useless wood chips into genuine works of art. Sergey uses a self-developed technique to keep the chips from crumbling, soaking the woodchips in water for a number of days, which then makes them flexible enough to sculpt the woodchips into his beautiful master pieces. Sergey prefers to works works with cembra pine, but will use other wood as occasion demands, including Siberian cedar. It takes Sergey about six months to complete one of these masterpieces, and he refuses to sell any of his pieces, despite any number of generous offers he says he does he artwork out of pure passion. I would love to have one of Sergey’s beautiful woodchip master pieces in my house.

“The Human Barbie” Gives Her Daughter A $10,000 Breast Enhancement Voucher For Her Seventh Birthday.
This lady has my vote for “Mother of the Year” -NOT!!
Sarah Burge, who is known as “The Human Barbie” gave her daughter Poppy a $10,000 breast enhancement voucher for her seventh birthday. At seven year’s of age, I didn’t know what boobs were, and did not care. I was too busy staying away from boys and not trying to catch “boy germs.”
Sarah Burge (the Mother) is so obsessed with looking like “The Human Barbie” that she has gone as far as to spending $800,000 in cosmetic enhancements. Sarah Burge now wants to turn her daughter into a glamor model and she claimed that when she gave her daughter Poppy the $10,000 breast enhancement voucher that Poppy “squealed with delight.” REALLY? ..Sarah Burge also claimed that “Poppy begged me for a boob job, so I gave her the voucher so she can have it after she’s 16, when it’s legal. If she develops naturally big boobs, she can have something else done with it.” What world do you live in lady!?!? I do not think any seven year old child would have “squealed with delight” by getting a breast enhancement voucher unless Mommy was screwing up her priorities.
On top of of giving her daughter the boob voucher, Sarah Burge also bought her daughter thousands of dollars worth of gifts, including a $400 computer, a $737 pink Swarovski crystal ring and necklace set, and the promise of a $6556.40 spa package.
Breaking up is never easy. It’s even more painful when your ex-girlfriend rips 32 of your teeth out!!
OMG.. when I read this article of a scorned dentist who removed all of her ex-boyfriends teeth, my jaw hit the desk. This chick must have rocks in her head to go as far as to remove her ex-boyfriends teeth. The other question that comes to mind is …WHY ON EARTH WOULD YOU BE HAVING A DENTAL PROCEDURE BY YOUR EX-GF!?!?!?!
This all started when Marek Olszewski had a major tooth ache and made an appointment with his ex-girlfriend Anna Mackowiak to have his sore tooth looked at. Marek Olszewski could never have imagined that his ex=girlfriend Anna Mackowiak would remove all of his teeth. According to Marek Olszewski “I didn’t have any reason to doubt her — I mean I thought she was a professional.” Really dude? You just broke up with her, and you think she might be slightly pissed off about it?
This is what Anna Machowiak had to say while she was looking at her ex’s sore tooth “I tried to be professional and detach myself from my emotions,” she told the news site. “But when I saw him lying there I just thought, ‘What a b—–d.’” Are you flipping kidding me? You tried to detach yourself. *Eye Roll* Why didn’t you just tell him to go and see a different dentist, or let some other dentist in your office look at him you moron!
This is just plain sick. If you are angry at your ex then fine, let me know, but don’t go and do something so sinister as to remove his teeth! If this was me, and my ex ripped my teeth out, he would need to fly to mars because I would hunt the bastard down.
Anna Mackowiak is facing jail time and will be charged for removing her ex-boyfriends teeth.
After three long years Vienna, Austria, has their very first Cat Café named “Cafe Neko.”. Unfortunately you will need to fly to Vienna if you want to visit with “Cafe Neko’s” five fur babies and enjoy a nice cup coffee.
I’m wondering if a Cat Café would take off where I live? I know I would love it if someone started one where I live. That’s one Cat Cafe I’d be visiting almost daily. I’m really happy that someone finally opened a Cat Café. It seems that only the dog lovers get all the attention, and us cat lovers are always left out, not anymore.
Customers at the “Cat Neko” can pet the five felines who live there named Sonja, Thomas, Moritz, Luca and Momo. They all came from a local animal shelter and now freely roam about the cafe visiting with customers and taking the occasional cat nap.

Starbugs: Coffee chain Starbucks to stop using insects to color food and drinks.
Ewwwwww….. If you’re going to put bug parts in my Starbucks coffee, at least tell me about it first! From this day forward, I shall refer to Starbucks as “StarBugs.”
If you have not heard the latest news from Starbucks, well, let me fill you in. Starbucks finally came out and admitted to their coffee drinkers (on their blog) earlier this week that they have been using “beetle-based food dye” to color their strawberry flavored mixed drinks, and other foods like the raspberry swirl cake, and red velvet whoopie pies! Are you flipping kidding me!?!? ..I mean how long has Starbucks been using this beetle-based food dye in their food and drinks? I will always look at Starbucks differently now. Starbucks came out and apologized saying that they are going to start using a natural, tomato-based extract “lycopene” to color their food and drinks going forward. …ahh, duh! That might have been a good choice from the start. What happened? Did they get a really good deal on beetles or something?
This is what Starbucks posted on their blog “After a thorough, yet fastidious, evaluation, I am pleased to report that we are reformulating the affected products to assure the highest quality possible” Cliff Burrows, the company’s US president said in a statement posted to the company’s blog. – My Translation ..oh shit, we got caught putting mashed beetle shit in our in our stuff, “quickly” (fastidiously) get that shit out before profits start dropping!
Twenty Four year old Charlotte Hothman, from Manchester England is obsessed with Barbie. She has gone as far as spending £10,000 to look just like the plastic doll. Charlotte has had a nose job, collagen in her lips, and dyed her hair blonde to turn herself into a human version of Barbie.
‘Boys don’t like it that I love Barbie so much. But I don’t mind. ‘If the right man comes along, he’ll love me and my Barbies.’
The promotions girl, from Manchester, told The Sun: ‘I told the clinic I would love to look like Barbie. ‘It was really painful. My face was bruised afterwards and it took weeks for the swelling to go down. ‘But when I took the bandages off it was well worth it. Then I dyed my hair blonde. ‘It’s completely changed by appearance and I think it looks pretty good. ‘Some people think it’s a little weird, but I think it’s great.’
A 95 year old Chinese lady comes back to life, after everyone thought she had died from falling and hitting her head. Apparently, the village she lived in had planed her funeral, and had her placed in a coffin in her home where locals could come to pay their respects. The day before Li Xiufeng’s funeral (6 days after being placed in her coffin), she wakes up, pushes the coffin lid off, and then decides to head to her kitchen and make herself something to eat!
‘I slept for a long time. After waking up, I felt so hungry, and wanted to cook something to eat.’
A 95-year-old Chinese woman thought to have passed away stunned her neighbours – after waking up six days after she had been placed in a coffin. Li Xiufeng was found motionless and not breathing in bed by a neighbour two weeks after tripping and suffering a head injury at her home in Beiliu, Guangxi Province.
When the neighbour who found her could not wake the pensioner up, they feared the worst and thought the elderly woman had passed away.
Back from the dead:
Li Xiufeng, 95, stunned neighbours by ‘waking up’ from her coffin the day before her funeral. She was placed in a coffin which was kept in her house unsealed under Chinese tradition for friends and relatives to pay respects. But the day before the funeral, neighbours found an empty coffin, and later discovered the 95-year-old, who had since woken up, in her kitchen cooking.
Neighbour Chen Qingwang, 60, who originally found Mrs Xiufeng, said:
‘She didn’t get up, so I came up to wake her up.
‘No matter how hard I pushed her and called her name, she had no reactions.
‘I felt something was wrong, so I tried her breath, and she has gone, but her body is still not cold.’
As Mrs Xiufeng lived alone, Mr Qingwang and his son made preparations for her funeral, and the ‘dead’ woman was left in her coffin two days after she was discovered.
The day before she was due to be permanently laid to rest, however, Mr Qingwang arrived at his neighbour’s property and found her ‘corpse’ had disappeared.
Its been one year since that deadly earthquake & tsunami hit Japan. I still get a tear in my eye when I see the images of the tsunami flooding of all the towns, and the people who could not get out in time. My heart goes out to all the of Japanese people who lost a loved one’s that day.
I posted this picture because I stumbled across an article on the internet telling the story about the girl in the photo. Of all the pictures that I have seen in the news, on the Internet, and the magazines, this is by far the one photograph that has affected me most.
Here is a snippet of the article, that I found on the internet about the girl in the photo if you want to know more about the background.
“One year after she was pictured sobbing in the remains of her home in the Yuriage district of the town of Natori, instantly becoming a symbol of the devastation wrought upon Japan by the March 11 tsunami, Akane Ito cannot bring herself to return again.
Ito, 29, had lived in a second-floor apartment that had stood where she was photographed and had gone to buy batteries and emergency supplies after the magnitude-9 earthquake struck.
She had believed that her 10 pet dogs would be safe while she was away, but the tsunami destroyed their home and she was only able to return two days later.
Ito, who worked in a bar, was crying for the pets that she said she could not save.
“I kept apologising in my mind to the dogs for not being able to protect them,” she told the Asahi newspaper, which first ran her photograph.
Over the next few weeks, she was reunited with two of her dogs – May, a 6-year-old female Labrador, and Momo, a female poodle – but continued the fruitless search for the others for months.”
