AMEN, Sami. Very little news coverage for 13 month old Antonio West who was shot in the face by two black teens. Even more outrageous is the fact that although the two teens are in jail, along with their mothers who disposed of the gun for them, the media is now trying to turn this on the mother. For God's sake, LE already said that the gun they recovered after arresting the mothers of the two black teens IS the murder weapon, but, instead of focusing on the heinousness of this crime, the media is dragging the baby's mother through the mud. This happens far too often.
If Trayvon had been a white boy and Zimmerman a black man, I doubt there would have been more than a couple of local news stories.
And don't forget the rather recent case where a white man was walking out of a store around 10 PM in Southern California. Four black men ran up to him and started to attack and rob him. Trying to flee from them, he ran into the street and was killed by a car. Bill Cosby brought that one up - he too is sick of the biased way of reporting crimes in the media. And what gets his gall, is that "Black on White" crimes are barely mentioned on the TV news or newspapers.

In order to tame and reduce racism in the U.S., honesty has to play a big role or else it only makes matters worse, regardless as to who is responsible. It causes resentment when groups have an agenda that makes them distort the truth.

Cosby and "The REVEREND" Al Sharpton are not friends, and for a very good reason. That man is a loose canon and needs a muzzle.

Morning Ladies! Just wanted you to know that I haven't forgotten a single one of you....

Have been busy; started the radiation treatments and have six more + weeks to go; also washing mounds of dishes, china, crystal and on and on it goes, getting everything ready to pack (and some packing as I go), getting ready for the big move closer to my son and granddaughter by the end of the year, hopefully. Don't have much time left between all this, plus taking an occasional nap, but do check for new posts, etc.

I think of you all often, and our precious lost angel Haleigh, and check frequently to see if there are any new posts.

For me, all is good! Wishing you all well...

Oh,Annie,I'm so sorry, I had no idea you were ill. Do you have cancer? Do you have to have chemo to? I didn't know your son & GD were no longer living with you. I'm so very sorry to hear of your illness. You are a very strong lady & you can beat this. Where are you moving to? I wish you the very best & I look forward to reading your comments. God Bless You Always!

Thank you Sweet Sami, and all of you, for your kind words and thoughts. They mean the world to me. Yes, I do have cancer and have had for a few years. The bladder cancer was successfully removed last Feb, 2012 and has not returned. That's the good news. However, the vocal cord cancer is another issue, the one I'm undergoing radiation for, trying to save my voice before more extensive measures are considered, e.i. surgery and chemo.

Personally, I've always felt there are worse things that can happen than living with cancer so I've tried to live with it for the most part; practicing alternative treatments which do help, but now its' come to this. This is why I have not been able to spend much time at my office as the physical weakness and weak voice has taken its' toll. BUT, all is good and I keep perking along.

Yes, my son & g/d moved to Sarasota last year with his g/f, approx 75 miles north of me, and closer to them is where I'll be moving. Not with them, but nearer to them. Yes, I've missed them terribly, but being a professional photographer with most of his work in that area and Tampa; 65 miles further, made it difficult for him to continue living here logistically and work. Of course, no way would he leave her. So there you have it; but I will say, I'm fine here by myself, no problem! God is SOO good to me. xx00xx... Thank you my friend.

Thank you, thank you, Vic! YES, keep me in your prayers! Truly, THAT is all ANY of us has; this I speak from the heart and soul. We cannot untangle the affairs of this world or the evil that is all around us, but we CAN keep a close walk with God and live in the knowledge that He will sustain us to the end and beyond. Therein lies my strength, and the strength of ALL of us.

Both my sons are being so good to me, thoughtful, kind and sweet; trying hard to go the extra mile even if not close by. I'm so glad God has given them this warning time to honor their mother so they are not left to grieve in great remorse, but can go on with peace in time to come. This matters greatly to me, for them, and for this time I am so thankful.

Sweet Angel Haleigh. I think of her often. I've even dreamed about her.(I remember too, her birthday was near mine on the 16th). Not one living soul to stand up for her, to declare how she was killed and by whom, to bring her in and give her a proper burial as Jesus told us to do; not one solitary guilty soul to pay the price in a court of law for her murder,(again, as Jesus told us to do), not one who will admit their part in hiding it.

Of course, sweet Haleigh is an angel now, but they will all pay throughout all eternity; how very sad when they could right this wrong NOW, repent, and not have to suffer the eternal consequences in outer darkness, torments and damnation. To think, how VERY sad for the many who covered up this childs' murder, her disposal and concealment. It's not only pure evil, its' pathetic that their soul is dark. But God says that his Word does not change and He will not be mocked. Sad to say, their day is coming. Thank you Vic, for your prayers. Please, keep me in mind. God hears you, sees you, knows your heart of kindness. xx00xx...

Thank you King George! I'm staying as strong as I can. Not so bad, so far, considering that I've already been dealing with it for quite a while. Earlier on, I had refused any kind of conventional treatment and had decided to take the alternative route since most of the surgeries/chemo/radiation ends in disaster, only quicker; but then the time came that the one had to be removed by the urologist last year and now this one in the throat.

It seems that I have no alternative other than radiation to try to save my vocal cords. Aha... but I'm eternally hopeful, AND grateful that God gave us physicians to help us to some degree. To tell you the truth though, I don't have a lot of faith in any one particular person, just God. To err is human,(and sometimes deliberate or negligent) but God makes no errors. Please, PLEASE, do pray for me. THERE is where my help lies. With all three of you above praying for me,(and anyone else who will), there alone lies a LOT of prayers going off to the throne room and the heavenly host!

I am wondering what you all think about this Hannah Anderson situation? I think there's much we don't know. How could these parents NOT know this DeMaggio close friend like-an-uncle didn't have his eye on Hannah for a looooong time? Why would they call on him all the time to run their errands with and for their kids? How could they not know he was warped? Or that one day he would call in his twisted favors and demand pay back for his family-favors, by way of claiming Hannah's sexual pleasure? What about the letters she had written to him? There's more to this story? I wonder.

Also, what about that trip the parents allowed Hannah to go off on for a week, staying in a motel room ALONE with DeMaggio? I suppose he always paid for everything too? WTH kind of parents would allow such a thing, even with a REAL uncle, not to mention a fake uncle? He was, after all, a man with testeorone and not a unich, even if he had shown no other sexual interests. For crying out loud; things happen in the middle of the night in motel rooms! I tell ya, ain't NO WAY I'd allow such a thing!!

Just DiMaggio hauling her butt back home after two nights because he was disgusted that she paid more attention to her ipad than she paid to him was warning them right there that he expected more from Hannah.

These parents must have been blind as a bat. Or were they? I think the investigators are too, not to consider the possibility there is more here than Hannah has leaked out. Now the mother and brother are dead and can't talk, while daddyO seems to be off on planet zerd.

Thank you!

Just cutting in here... it will be a busy day today for me. I am glad that I am not the only one who thinks something is 'hinky' about this case. But whenever I hint to anyone else my opinions on this, I get hammered so I finally decided not to say anything to others at this time. But! That is what these blogs are for! LOL!

Was Hannah's family THAT stupid? They HAD to know how nuts DiMaggio's parents were... talk about coming from a dysfunctional background! They had known him for years! Only until after he grabbed Hannah and took her with him after the house caught on fire, did this history of his family come out in the media. If he was THAT close to her family, they HAD to know about all of this! Not sure she said much to them about being afraid of him or not.. that is what her dad and she herself are saying now. But, is that to just protect her so the real truth doesn't get out to the media? All week the cable TV news has been playing her out as a complete victim. However, I am not sure that is the case yet at this time.

She was sixteen - a vulnerable age in which many gals at that age can be easily infatuated and influenced by older men. He flattered her, and I think she melted. Any female who is afraid of a guy who she interprets as stalking her, is not going to keep returning his calls, either. We shall see how this all plays out, but this is my theory at the present time. Sure, now she 'sees the light' and probably is in mourning for her brother and mother; thus the statements from her.. "He deserved what he got", etc. I am giving her the benefit of the doubt at this time that she did not help him plan the murders. BUT - it sure wouldn't be the first time that a young person was influenced by someone like that IF the parents were trying to prevent a young teen from getting involved with someone they knew was dangerous. What if.. just saying... WHAT IF, at the time she DID go along with it? What if she and this DiMaggio were having a sexual relationship and her mother found out? What if, caught up in emotion and lust, she went along with his plans?

Even if she didn't, there is certainly more to this story than has been told at this time. She also didn't say a 'peep' when authorities first found her - she says it was because she was too afraid to speak, but I don't believe her. She could have easily indicated to them that she was being held captive. Too many times the 'fear factor' is over rated in so-called kidnapping cases in order to give the "victim" a way out. Not sure this applies here.

Ponderings, I couldn't agree with you more! There HAS to be more to this story than we know, or likely will ever know! I haven't been posting about any of this on other sites,(or even reading them); but if I had I'm sure I would have raised some doubts since I DO have them. No, I'm not accusing the girl of anything, but I AM saying there is more. MUCH more.

Also, I don't believe that at least the mother did not have some misgivings about DiMaggios' feelings and intentions towards Hannah. I don't see how she COULDN'T have had some inkling since she is the ONE who allowed Hannah to go off on that week long trip ALONE with him, and she HAD to know why he brought her back home after only two days!! Also the little brother; how much did HE know that caused DiMaggio to have to kill him TOO? DaMNED RIGHT, there's more to this story!!

I can use myself as a measuring rod. At sixteen years old I was on my own, renting a room, working behind the soda fountain of a drug store and sending myself to school all by my lonesome little self, fending for myself and with no help financially or in any other way from ANYONE! At 16, some of us are 'smarter' than we will ever be again. Or think we are.

Absolutely, this "so-called girl/child" was quite capable of being involved with DiMaggio sexually AND in the gruesome murders of her mother and brother. Not saying she was, but she certainly could have been; not excusing her mother (OR her father) either for not keeping her AWAY from DiMaggio. They HAD to have seen the signs many times. For pete's sake; he had been their "friend" before Hannah was even born!

I just wonder what he did for a living, that he was always able to blow wads of money on this family? And NEVER expected payback?? He sure as hell did, and finally took it, didn't he?

Has it come out yet whether or not he was involved in drugs? Maybe he was a user AND a dealer.. that could explain the wads of cash.

Wasn't DiMaggio living with Hannah's mother as her live in? That right there speaks volumes to HER character, too. Some may say she was getting to strict with Hannah- well think about it. Not only would any GOOD mother not want to see her teenage daughter get involved with a much older man, but HE HAD BEEN HER LOVER TOO, Hadn't he? Does anyone know for sure? If so, jealously would also play a big part here, if that was true. There are all kinds of dynamics going on here that we haven't been told yet. The kind of boyfriends these mothers sometimes pick to drag home to their kids absolutely astounds me. Are they THAT desperate?????

It was also reported on CNN that "Hannah is doing better, and the day after she got back home (to mourn in private) she then went out and got her nails done". Wait a minute....NOT SO FAST!

I don't care.. some may call that 'therapy'.. but something ain't right her, folks. IF she was just relieved that the bad boogey man was dead, that would be one thing. But her MOTHER and BROTHER were murdered! And burned up in a house fire! Hello??? Whether I was a toddler, adolescent, teenager, or grown adult when my family was murdered - if this had happened to me, the last thing on my mind would be..."Hey, I think I would feel better if I got my nails done!"

I smell a rat... a DEAD, rotten rat.

I haven't followed that case. I've only read a couple of articles about it. I remember a case I did follow in which Adam Mayes, a close family friend of the Bain family, abducted Mother Jo Ann Bain and her three daughters. He and his wife killed Jo Ann and the oldest daughter at their home in Mississippi, and buried them on their property. When police caught up to him, he shot, and killed himself. The two youngest daughters were saved.
Mayes had traveled to TN to help the Bains move. He was described as being like an uncle to the girls.

In Alanna Gallagher case, 17 year old Tyler Holder was arrested. He lived two doors down from the Gallaghers. Her little body was found a mile away from her home, but, authorities said that Holder's vehicle did not leave his house at all on the day of her murder. He must have had an accomplice.
Originally, police were looking for a red pickup truck. Another family living about 14 miles from the Gallagher's said that a man in a red pickup truck had stopped in front of their house about a month before Alanna's murder, and tried to coax their two little girls out of the front yard, and over to the truck.

Ponderings; I tried to answer your post above but wasn't able to get it through, then lost it. I'll try again later today or this evening. For now I have to get ready and leave for my treatment. Sometimes I have to go to bed afterwards, sometimes not. Maybe today will be one of those 'not' days.

Meanwhile, I agree with you 100% girl! No quarrel coming from me. There's WAY MORE going on (or went on) here than we know about. This entire bunch COULDN'T have been a complete bunch of saps. Could they? Sure sounds like the investigators are dumber than a box a rocks too.

K Geo, thank you for the updated info above. I've somewhat looked in on those two cases too and was aware of the arrests in both of them. I was wrong in Alannas' case; I would have bet money that either the mother or one of the daddies in that house was involved in her death. I am not too familiar with the Bain case, or either have forgotten what little I knew about it.

In the shooting death of the West baby in Brunswick, Ga., the parents are also being treated as suspects in addition to the two young black men who have been apprehended (along with the mother and an aunt), b/c of the gun powder that was found on both of them, and also due to the mothers' grown daughter raising some suspicious questions about the life ins policy her mother had on the baby. This is the case where the mother had a yard sale immediately to get rid of baby's things. How pathetic.

I wish you would pick up on this 'Hannah Anderson vs James Lee DiMaggio' story. You are so good at sniffing out dirt and finding hidden links!

Ponderings, I had not heard that Hannahs' mother was shacking up with DiMaggio. I had heard that the father was working out of town, then another time I heard the parents were separated. These trashy women WILL do it though, and right in front of their vulnerable kids; usually without paying attention that it is really one of the kids their sex partner is after; then they go off and leave him in charge of their helpless kids, not only that, they make their abused kids 'mind' him! These children truly have no hope and no escape.(The sickening drug haven and violent murder of Hailey Dunn comes to mind).

What I had read was that DiMaggio had his own log home with detached garage and that he had invited the Andersons to his place to spend time with him one last time before his house was taken in foreclosure, and that it was on THAT visit that he murdered the mother and young son and set his house on fire (not their house) while Hannah was off at a sports practice session, then he picked her up and took off towards Idaho. During that time he and Hannah had 13 email or text messages between them. Pray tell, what the he!! was THAT all about?! It doesn't take 13 conversations to make arrangements to pick up someone!

There are so MANY lingering "why" questions without explanation. It appears to me that DiMaggio was deliberately executed by firing squad before he had time to talk. What say you?

As soon as I learned that the cops had killed him, I had assumed it was a planned suicide on his part. Remember, his friend on CNN kept saying that he was worried about him because the anniversary of when his own dad killed himself was coming up... and, it was on that date when he himself was killed. Can't prove it, I guess, but it sure looks suspicious, doesn't it?

Maybe I am wrong then then DiMaggio and Hannah's mother were intimate.. something on one of the news stations or the AOL article today tipped me off thinking this.. maybe I read it wrong, however. And as you said, cases like the sleazy family that poor Hailey Dunn was born into sure came to mind during all of this. Maybe it isn't the same; we will probably find out for sure one way or the other. But I still think that Hannah went with this guy willingly, whether or not she soon realized her mistake, we may never know. She's only sixteen, but old enough to know she would be in a heap of trouble if it was discovered that she was 'in' on the burning of the house that resulted in the deaths of her family.

Ponderings, I don't know the truth about any of the stories ref the Anderson Family/DiMaggio situation; only the few scant stories I've read. I Googled them last night and found there are many people posting under various headings who raise the same suspicious questions you and I are raising and not many at all who lean towards believing that Hannah is little miss innocent in all this.

Go to Google and read some of these posts; you'll be surprised. There are many posters there who don't believe her. I did learn that Hannah had taken many day trips with DiMaggio and that for him to pick her up for a trip would not have been unusual, which does not sound to me like she was 'scared' of him.

I also looked under Websleuths and it was there that everyone was oohing and awwing over the lucky to have been found and brought home safely, the lovely Hannah. None there had any questions concerning the possibility of her involvement. The best of all the blogs was Val Hall of The Hinkey Meter, but her site has been taken down. Val always researched her suspicions with mounds of solid evidence and got to the truth, but she has vanished.

The thing is, I'm not finding any links that leads to any updated news articles, just the initial statement declaring Hannah 100% an innocent victim, which was made by the local sheriff at the time she was found and DiMaggio was shot dead; which IMO was not necessary. One shot to a leg would have brought him down, then we'd know.

I understand what you're saying, about the anniversary of DiMaggios' father having committed suicide, and his friends' concern that he might use that date to kill himself. Okay, fine, but that would not have necessitated him killing Hannahs' mother and little brother, plus the dog; people he supposedly dearly loved, burning his house/garage down, and kidnapping Hannah with the eventual intention of killing her too.

DiMaggio already had many years of anniversaries to kill himself if that's what he was planning to do. You know, I really get sick of all these armchair pseudo psychologists always reading a deep and dark psychological reason into every little thing that happens, when maybe there wasn't one. The fact is, most people aren't as "deep" as others give them credit for being.

Yeah, I know; people go nuts and off the deep end and do very horrible and evil things, and maybe this is what DiMaggio did and without provocation; only, I'm not so sure there wasn't some other evil scheme here that involved Miss Hannah herself. As it looks right now, we aren't ever going to get a clue outta her OR her daddyO. It looks to me like they're just out there collecting donations when DiMaggio already left his $112K life ins policy beneficiary payable to Hannah's grandma!

On a final note? I'd really like to know more about James Lee DiMaggio but don't know where to find the info. Or is there any? Surely he had a family, a mother, relatives; perhaps a former wife, kids somewhere, friends, neighbors and former co-workers? Any number of these people would have known the real James Lee.

Surely at some point he had plans and aspirations. He was not just a deadbeat. He had an auto, had purchased a home and built a garage; all this took some planning and stability. But he was a lonely man who cherished and hung his affections onto the Andersons and their babies.

So he had a mediocre job, so do a lot of other people, but still manage to hold onto stability. Was his job something like a telephone solicitor? Whatever, I don't think he made a lot of money, but I DO see where the Andersons kept him drained! It's no wonder he couldn't keep up his mortgage payments; the Andersons were using him up, consuming his every waking moment, burning up his gasoline as fast as he could fill up his tank, hauling them on trips and HIM paying for everything; AND running everywhere else for them night and day; outright using him for their entertainment pleasures, AND their drudgery.

I'd almost guarantee you he bought nearly every bite of food they swallowed, and paid for every gallon of gasoline. God knows what else he gladly paid for them! NOW he's lost his home because of them, when all he ever did was love and 'do' for them. They took advantage of him and used him up, now he has nowhere to turn. See where I'm going with this? They drove him off the deep end.
