Ariel Castro – A Different Kind of Justice


amanda-berry-gina-dejesus-and-michelle-knightAlthough he faced 977 charges for the kidnap and rape, assault and other counts, Ariel Castro has avoided a death penalty by accepting a plea deal that will place him in jail for life without parole plus 1,000 years.

Castro kidnapped Amanda Berry, Gina Dejesus and Michelle Knight between 2002 and 2004 and held them captive and raped and tortured them for a decade.

The three young women are all in counseling and reported doing well after their harrowing ordeal.

Fortunately, they will not have to relive their nightmare by facing a lengthy trial!

    Donchais I am so glad that you posted this. I was thrilled that Castro took the deal and I sincerely hope that his three survivors do not face him at sentencing to give VIS. They are away from him and will need a lifetime to heal from their ordeal.

    They have suffered something none of us will ever be able to imagine even in our wildest imaginations. It is my sincere hope that with the help/therapy they are receiving and the press leaving them alone, that they are able to live the lives they were mean’t and deserve to live, happy and free.

        Hey now! Watch out now, we might have to duke that “specialist” one out MMD. πŸ˜€ I got 52 years on ya being called that! Seniority rules doncha know πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜†
        I too agree on the plea deal! At least no more having to face that animal again, nor in court!!! Those poor girls!!! Hope they finally get the peace they deserve!!

  2. 07/27/2013 at 8:43 am

    This plea deal is what these 3 incredibly brave girls wanted – to avoid facing this asshole in court and being traumatized all over again. Some on-air talking heads, I’m looking at you Jinkasaurus, should shut up and respect the victims’ and prosecutors’ decision. The State would have had problems proving the murder charges.

    • MMD
      07/27/2013 at 10:13 am

      They would never have been able to prove the murder charges, imho, if the pregnancy was early. Jenkasaurus should shut her mouth unless she has something of relevance to add to any conversation, which I have yet to hear. I thought she had been let go but no, now she is even contaminating CNN.

      We will never be able imagine the sheer terror and abuse these 3 girls went through even if we read all the police reports. It is simply beyond anyone’s comprehension. It would have been extreme cruelty to have gone to a trial. These girls truly need to heal and a trial would have been a circus.

      My only hope is that Castro is put in solitary so no one is able to get near him to put him out of his misery!!!! HE DESERVES EVERY MINUTE AND MORE!

      • 07/27/2013 at 10:57 am

        Ditto on the solitary. I was deeply affected by the dignity, poise and courage the girls showed when they made the video statements – what strength.

      • MMD
        07/27/2013 at 11:07 am

        I cried watching them, especially Michelle Knight.

      • 07/27/2013 at 11:20 am

        I’ll fess up, me too. Michelle was the one I was most worried about because we had heard so much about physical damage to her face. Seriously, if I could get my hands on that mofo…..

    • ByeByeJA
      07/27/2013 at 11:23 am

      I was screaming at the TV when Jinkasaurus was blabbing on and on about how this was too easy for him! I truly believe she was just disappointed that they weren’t going to be able to capitalize on this trial as they have during the last few – what a disgusting human being. She obviously has absolutely no regard for the feelings of those beautiful young women who need to be allowed to move on – not face this MF’er for the next few years during a trial. Move on HLN —- AND STOP SCREAMING!

      • 07/27/2013 at 11:37 am

        You said Bye, I was yelling back at her too .I couldn’t believe the tact she was taking, that she could be so oblivious to the facts.

        I was screaming right along with ya!! Everything you all said, I agree with. & feel the same. Even Michelle! I believe she got the longest time, & roughest beatings with that sorry excuse for a man! Give us just 5 minutes in a room with him!!!! 😑

  3. 07/27/2013 at 11:41 am

    07/27/2013 at 10:29 pm

    I was appalled at what the Jinx (my name for her) did the other night. She had as much sensitivity for the victims as for a gnat. Castro had zero chance of prevailing at trial and his lawyers did the best they could with a very bad case. During the hearing, I could see the disgust on their faces towards their client.

    Sentencing is August 1 at 9 AM EDT. I’ll be watching just to hear him expound on his personal traumas as a child and his horrible addiction to pornography that supposedly ruined his eyes.

    I was extremely pleased with the 1000 years that follow the LWOP sentence and the fact that he has to forfeit all his worldly possessions to the State of Ohio. I hope some of it goes to his victims for the treatment they will need for a long time.

    If he is put in isolation, it will be for his own protection. I doubt he would last very long in general population.

    His entire family has disowned him. I doubt that any of them will be putting funds into his canteen, so he will have to live on jail food only and won’t be able to buy some of the finer things in life like pencils and paper. No more porn, nothing to do. It’s going to be a hell of a life.

    • MMD
      07/28/2013 at 8:00 am

      Thank you ritanita. You expressed exactly what we are all feeling and what life will be like for Castro with your comment. All of us have been so livid about what he did and how the 3 girls plus his granddaughter suffered plus the media response that we have forgotten what happened in the courtroom.

      Thanks for putting it all back into perspective!!! Don’t know what we’d do without you and donchais and don’t want to find out. πŸ™‚

    It’s Travis’ birthday, and [on my part] it will be a day dedicated to his memory. Here is a thought on this day — This waiting game for the end of these Sentencing Proceedings should be moved along, so that the Alexanders can have a sense that their brother rests in peace. Special prayers will be said for all the Alexander family members today. On the previous page, NancyB posted an e-mail she received from Chris Hughes with more information about ways that Travis can be honored.

  6. jad
    07/28/2013 at 2:25 am

    donchais — Thank you so much for those kind words on the last page. I also appreciate you taking the time to fill me in about the manner certain cable TV personalities write a book without applying much effort (into the truth of the matter). Once I had heard that those close to the case had written about the facts in a book form, I mistakenly assumed those facts would be portrayed correctly. In other words, in the jump to a conclusion, it was not expected that a book would be written [by a well-paid cable TV personality] in the same vein as that displayed in the off-kilter Lifetime movie about the relationship between Jodi Arias and Travis Alexander. WOW — if these moderators and commentators don’t take advantage by speaking towards the truth [to elevate their audience], what keeps them in position? If you don’t mind, when this case starts up again [and at the appropriate time], I would like to be able to post significant information that has been gathered. I have researched so much, and I do not want it to go to waste. Also, I would like to repost the material that can not yet be determined to apply [in one way or another], but that has been discussed by many of the peeps here and should be rehashed to get to the crux of the matter. It is this void that was hoped would have been addressed in any book written on the case [by a Jane Velez-Mitchell or any other person familiar with the undisclosed information]. Anyway, that compliment of yours goes a long way this weekend. The feeling is almost the same as getting a gold star on my homework or making the Dean’s List.

    MMD, NancyB, and Beans — As you probably already figured out, I am more at ease writing about the manner that the Chronis [vs. Steinle] decision affects Probable Cause and why the use of this particular case by the criminal lawyers is not only a red herring but useless grounds for a Mistrial. Because I felt that you could see that there was a comfort zone in dissecting the Law and that it was necessary to spell out the intricacies of the Law, I thought that what I wrote would be accepted — but still seen as dry and somewhat boring. The scheming, the contradictions, and the deception presented by Jodi Arias and her criminal lawyers presented a very different category on which to research and write [than the surety of a published Law or the written words of a legal paper or pleading]. Delving into the criminal mind and addressing the method employed by a person like a Jodi Arias or her sycophants and henchmen is not my usual forte. (Where oh where is Syntara when we need her?) So, thank you for your reassurance on my writing skills. You have really given me much impetus to finish what was started.

    From what can be understood now, I am beginning to believe that I was initially roped into writing that report to prevent me from getting into serious trouble. My friends and family knew that I was contacting anyone and everyone (in the bureaucratic levels of government) in the State of Arizona. I had uncovered all of the reasons for a Speedy Trial and [along the way] discovered quite a few violations of Law and Court Rule. So, following the original command of Captain Bubbles, a [relentless] letter writing campaign had ensued. In spite of wanting to continue the tack taken, those closest to me knew what to do to stop the madness [created from the utter frustration at the disregard by authority figures over the violations of the Law and disrespect towards Court Rule].

    The diversion employed was to request a report on the details of the case, where the busy work would keep me out of harm’s way. This worked one time before, although that was not recognized until the past few days. There have only been two times in my life that I interfered in another’s business in this way — this case and the Casey Anthony case. That is probably why I feel so comfortable in this room. There is a commonality — which is, we all recognize a miscarriage of justice and want to do something about it. As compassionate human beings, we can not sit idly by while knowing a brutally slaughtered man (Travis Alexander) continues to be victimized by the deliberately hurtful and senseless acts taken against his family members. It is my belief that the only way to stop Jodi Arias from taunting the Alexander family and put a halt to the attack on a good man’s character is for her to sit on Death Row. If there is any lesser sentence, she will continue to torture the family. When the Retrial of the Penalty Phase starts, we have to be armed with the facts, and maybe [just maybe] another miscarriage of justice would not be able to persevere. What a shame that the justice system can not operate on its own and has to be policed by outsiders to maintain the integrity of the system.

    • 07/28/2013 at 10:07 am

    As Ritanita wrote above, Castro will be in danger from the other inmates if not placed in isolation.

    Angelo Buono, the Hillside Strangler, died alone in his cell. He was afraid to leave it out of fear, ironic considering the terror Buono caused.

    • 07/28/2013 at 12:11 pm

      I don’t see the family or Juan Martinez accepting anything that would give her the possibility of ever being free to do as she pleases. She’d rather put everyone through another round of her lies (wonder how much they have changed thus far) — to do anything less means she loses the spotlight – heaven forbid.

      • 07/29/2013 at 11:35 am

        This is what bothers me about LWOP, I’m still a little confused, but as I understand it she could eventually earn her way out of lockdown and be allowed to mix with other inmates – that should never happen.

        Darlin’ you know that he has the patience of a saint! Truly!!! He has been working in her courtroom for something like 9 years. Lord knows that would have driven a lesser person to a padded room!!! πŸ˜†

    No darlin’ you’re not having a senior moment πŸ™„ I think you got the idea because this case is her first murder trial. At least that’s the excuse that everyone was pontificating as to why she was allowing so many sidebars, in chamber meetings, delays, etc.

  29. 07/29/2013 at 2:35 pm

    Good interview with Wendy Murphy on Tricias True Crime Radio last night, although I don’t agree with what she said about male jurors re:the arias case. Since I seem to be one of the few guys here I’d be interested in hearing some female opinions. Fair warning: the first part will break your heart.

      we heard back-and-forth…call men and ya get sympathy…call women, who might have been victims of abuse,and ya get sympathy…i’m just disgusted what our system has broken down into, allowing the defense to do what they are allowed to do…it’s not justice..it’s bs!

      • 07/29/2013 at 4:30 pm

        Murphy implied you get more than sympathy with men, you get a walking erection that can’t look at the facts because it is too busy fantasizing about doing her. That may be true of some but not me and I suspect many others.

        Never mind, I know which one you mean. It’s the one starring Tyler Perry and Ed BURNS which was panned and died at the box office.

        Normally I don’t like to watch movies about characters that I already have a picture of in my mind. That’s why I wouldn’t go see Tom Cruise as Jack Reacher. He totally didn’t fit the image whatsoever plus I have a problem with TC and that entire Scientology thingy.

  38. MMD
    07/30/2013 at 9:03 am

    I think that I am losing my oldest baby. I have watched her fail for the past little while but last night she had some type of episode and peed the bed, something she has never done in 14 years and then later she vomited all over her side of the bed, without moving. She’s not in any pain, just wants me to be beside her all the time on the bed. I hope that when it happens, she just goes in my arms like her brother/buddy did. 😦

    Hoping for the best but when she does go, I will be devastated!!!! Any other time I would be at the AVC demanding they do everything possible but I don’t want to put her through any of that. I wouldn’t even put her through the general for the cataract surgery she needed because it wasn’t causing any discomfort and she had no problems with the other eye.

    I truly think that these adorable creatures should outlive humans. It sucks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Thanks DP but you know how it feels being a cat lover. You never want to lose them and the only thing she has ever had done was to have her knee rebuilt (she’s quite proud of the pins in her knee) so she has never had any serious issues. She’s tougher than she looks so I’m hoping for the best. πŸ™‚

    Hey all. Just catching up. I got Stupid back. The merciful people that took him mistreated him and neglected him so I took him back. I’ll have to open a Twitter account so I can share a picture of him. He hasn’t grown an inch. I gave him a bath and the water was brown. Picked the ticks out of his ears, and hit him up with some Frontline. We’ll be hitting the road in a week or two for a needed road trip. And I changed his name, I was afraid Stu-Pid might be hurting his self esteem, so I renamed him, Leif “Whip” Torgenson.

    Just a suggestion, instead of a kennel if you have a room that he can’t do too much damage to why not try that and use a babygate. That’s what Maggie May does. It takes 3 babygates to put her in the kitchen because it has doors to the dining room, family room and hall and I don’t want to close the glass doors, but she totally loves it. It is lovingly referred to as her condo. She sleeps, eats and lives there when she is not causing trouble with the other 2. Hell she owns the entire downstairs – very territorial for a 10 pound little cutie and comes and goes as she pleases. She wasn’t nicknamed the devil spawn originally for nothing πŸ˜‰

    Something like that may give Stupid a feeling of having his own space but then wouldn’t mind being locked in there when you have to go out. Lord know what was done to him when he was gone. Hell, it’s worth a try!!!

    DP – knock on wood but Daisy is doing much better today. Long night as she was up and down drinking so hopefully I have gotten a reprieve. I truly hope so and give all the credit to all the healing vibes sent by you and Beans. Fingers crossed.

    Hell would freeze over before I would pay over $200/month for cable. My guilty pleasure is books, a lot of them, as soon as they come out so it is cheaper for me to buy the dvds or download from iTunes. I don’t watch that much tv so I’ll stick with my 70 channels. Plus I don’t think Justified is even on F/X Canada!!! Plus I’ve kinda gotten used to watching tv on my laptop – it’s 17 inches and I feel more involved in the show than on my bigscreen.

    So how are you today???

      I’m good knowing Daisy is doing well today.
      Justified is not on FX. That $200 includes internet and phone. So its not that bad.OK maybe it is.
      How are you?

      • MMD
        07/31/2013 at 6:49 am

        Very relieved but extremely tired. Just discovered on Trial Divas that Stephens will not be the judge on the Chrisman trial. Hopefully that means it will move faster.

        Glad to see that you liked The Bridge because somehow I missed the comment yesterday where Beans said he didn’t like it.

        07/31/2013 at 6:50 am

        I’m still watching Luther but I find it is hard to watch, very intense, so I take breaks during each episode. Honestly, each one feels like a full movie.

        So Mama duck around today with her ducklings?

      • dpforjodi

        If Mama duck has lost her ducklings again then you need to report her to DPS as she has proven herself to be an unfit mama duck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Make sure you get right on that now darlin’, yes b’ye!!!

      • dpforjodi
        07/31/2013 at 7:00 am

        It was the other duck that had the ducklings that got ate. So hopefully she is a better mom. I miss the ducks. Loved it when they tapped on the garden door to be fed. Don’t miss cleaning up after them. It was like a mine field on the driveway

      • 07/31/2013 at 7:01 am

        somebody carries Justified here ’cause I’ve watched it, thought it was FX. Just to help you guys feel better, my cable/phone bill is $76.00 bucks a month – that includes all HD, and Hollywood Suite. I share wi-fi with my neighbour, costs me $20.00.

      • MMD
        07/31/2013 at 7:01 am

        It is truly my favourite passtime and was nurtured when I was a kid as I wasn’t allowed to watch tv during the week. If I had my homework done, practiced the piano, then I was told to read a book. After I went through all the town library books I started on the ones at Mount Allison Univ. I love to reread books that I enjoy so that’s why I keep buying them. I have pre-orders in at Amazon up to 2015 but truly running out of space for them all.

      • 07/31/2013 at 7:05 am

        I re-read favourites too. I could walk away from everything else as long as I had books and a radio.

        OK that’s because it hasn’t even been assigned to a judge yet. I know HLN won’t cover it because it is doing Andrea S. and this is not high profile. I totally disagree with one of the articles – Black Eye News – which was printed in May.

        We have to wait to see what the new judge rules today.

    I am really surprised that Michelle Knight is supposed to be giving a VIS today in court as she is the one who was the one who suffered the most severe abuse. While it may be therapeutic for her I certainly hope that it via videotape and not in person.

    She is one strong girl (they all are) who is determined not to let what happened to define her and I admire their strength greatly as they have a lifetime of healing to go through!!!!!!

        08/01/2013 at 8:19 am

        it’s supposed to be evil. If he gets thrown into general then he won’t get to suffer the same isolation that the girls did. He’d be dead so fast in general that he wouldn’t truly understand what he put those girls through and I really want him to suffer for a very, very long time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I still can’t get unstuffed from crying listening to the VIS, especially Michelle Knight.

    What was so great with all these live feeds open I got to listen to the entire presser. When one left it, I moved to another. LE and the justice system truly did an admirable job getting justice for those survivors!!! Kudos to every single one involved!!!!! I’m just so glad they didn’t have to put on a trial.

    I don’t know if I had been in that situation for all those years if I would have survived. It really takes an incredible amount of inner strength and hope and I don’t know how many people truly possess that, when push comes to shove. Everyone has a different breaking point.

        08/01/2013 at 3:51 pm

        Thank you darlin’ for your appreciation of my smarts but it is the stamina that would be the problem. At that age there is such a lack of life experience, especially Gina who was only 14. I may have grown up with a street full of boys (and been allegedly the ringleader) but we were pretty tame and I had a fairly sheltered childhood.

      • 08/01/2013 at 4:11 pm

        Point taken. I come from a family of fighters, not thugs who start things, but people who never give an inch when pushed. I would prefer never getting into a physical confrontation but tend to go a little crazy when it’s unavoidable.

      I just downloaded episode 3 of Season 3. There will only be 4 episodes and then that is the end. They are planning a Luther movie next.

      The Sessions is about a sexual surrogate for a man in an iron long who wants to lose his virginity. It features Helen Hunt who I like.

      • 08/02/2013 at 7:48 am

        I like Helen too. This is supposed to be a very good film.

    As I lay in bed last night I was thinking of those 3 young girls that monster, whose name I am no longer going to use, abducted. I truly hope that now that he is sentenced and will never see the light of day, they will move on with their lives and I wish them only the best that life has to offer. I hope that the media and others continue to afford them the privacy that they so richly deserve and that the true healing, albeit a life long process, has started.

    I have such admiration for the women they have become as I know the entire world who watched has. Now let’s stop talking about the monster and the case on every media outlet!!!! Time to heal and move on.

    • 08/02/2013 at 7:42 am

        Well Beans you enjoy it for me!!!! I must admit that when my root canal fell apart I went to a new dentist here and she was absolutely awesome, although she was stunned at how much it took to freeze my mouth. I was chatting away and drinking my dPepsi 0 withouth dribbling at all (a true talent). She was so good and I didn’t feel a thing. I even made someone come with me and sit in the room with me!!!!!!

        I walked out saying wow, I am totally over my fear of dentists but then I got back home and with each day the fear came back. Considering in my lifetime I have probably had less than a half dozen fillings, I shouldn’t have this fear!!!!

      • 08/02/2013 at 8:20 am

      I’m not familiar with her at all. Sounds horrific though. All of us who have had relatively normal lives without any major traumas like those (cause everyone goes through good and bad times in life) need to be very thankful and I am. I know that the abuse that I suffered in my marriage rarely even crosses my mind. It’s like it never happened.

      What some people have gone through truly boggles my mind. And at the presser yesterday they talked about the amount of incest that has occurred and is so prevalent today but not talked about. Can’t even imagine it and my heart aches for anyone suffering through it.

      • MMD
        08/02/2013 at 8:59 am

        Good and watch The Killing as well. They are both based on Danish shows.

        As a point of NO interest to anyone, they originally wanted it to be filmed on the bridge between Windsor and the States to replicate the winter conditions. Producers were later convinced to change it to the Bridge of the Americas or whatever it is called.

        Just a useless tidbit of which I have many.

      • 08/02/2013 at 9:05 am

        It’s never useless imo, I love trivia.

    I talked to a lot of people about Netflix before dipping my foot in and I remember that my cleaning lady told me that her son, who is at UNB, didn’t have cable for a month for some reason and so he joined Netflix for the free trial and then when it was over, he ended it no problem. I think that was what convinced me to give it a try.

      Not going to be a big production, Just 2 witnesses and dinner after. We could have had it at home with a couple of dozen people, but decided it would be too much work. There is no whale watching in St. Pierre in September, Plus if you take a car over you have to stay a week. I don’t think I could take the French for that long.

      • 08/02/2013 at 9:30 am

        I’d better start walking now if I’m going to make it to the dinner.

        08/02/2013 at 9:44 am

        lol, stretchy pants so I can pig out at the buffet.

      • MMD
        08/02/2013 at 9:55 am

        Forget about whether it is same sex or not, it is your wedding and the most important thing is you enjoy it, elastic band and all.

        You do however have to follow the something blue, something borrowed, something old and something new. Ya can pass on the garter but it’s up to you if you want to jink it by letting your wife see you prior to the wedding. Don’t forget you can’t even see each other the night before……………………….

        Cool, the reason I ask is my ex is an excellent carpenter. When we bought our place in the country years ago, she completely gutted it and rebuilt it herself – she is a strong tough farm girl. I was a mechanic who worked on cars, motorcycles and diesel equipment and she was always there to help when I needed it.

    Morning Beans. I guess the joke is on you. After I posted the comment to you I went back to sleep and except for navigating traffic on the bed, that’s what I did until about an hour ago. Thank goodness my babies are grazers and use puppy pads!!!

    So what did you think? I’ve only watched the first 2 episodes.

    • 08/03/2013 at 7:57 am

      Good stuff, sounds like you had a restful night. Still undecided, will catch another episode – nice to see Ted Levine working though, always an under-appreciated character actor imo.

      • MMD
        08/03/2013 at 8:27 am

        How many episodes have you watched. I think only 4 have aired. It’s kind of like The Killing. I couldn’t connect to the 2 main characters but once I did, I was hooked. Can’t wait for the finale of Season 3 on Sunday night. Both are based on Danish series.

      • 08/03/2013 at 8:36 am

        just the first but I’ve got the next 3 bookmarked. I just set the dvr for The Killing on AMC.

      • MMD
        08/03/2013 at 8:39 am

        No I haven’t but I just added him to my wishlist on Amazon. I see he has several series plus numerous standalones. Which is the best series?

      • MMD
        08/03/2013 at 8:43 am

        I am truly going to miss the characters once Stephen White’s series ends this month. After 20 books I complained bitterly to his web maven who also looks after Connelly and Deaver. I feel so invested in the characters.

        Have you ever read any David Baldacci????

    • MMD
      08/03/2013 at 8:19 am

      Darn – I meant that the joke was on me 😳

  159. 08/03/2013 at 8:51 am

    Perry’s early stand-alones – Metzger’s Dog and Big Fish are very funny crime novels. My favourite series is the Jane Whitefield books. She helps abuse and crime victims disappear – she’s Native Amer. with ties to Six Nations, which gets mentioned in some stories – think you’ll love her. I read all Baldacci but he is hit and miss with me – love some, others, not so much.

      08/03/2013 at 8:58 am

      Thanks darlin’, I’ll give him a try (although I have a pile of books that I haven’t even opened yet because of the JA trial and then I got into my tv marathons) Always looking for new and good authors!

      • 08/03/2013 at 9:15 am

        08/03/2013 at 9:35 am

        Just went to her website and she looks very interesting. Love strong female characters and her Madelaine Dare sounds good.

        Have you read any Zoe Sharp? She’s an author from the UK that when Lee Child was doing a book signing tour there was told by numerous people that they liked his books but she was better. She has only recently come to U.S./Canadian publishers but when I first heard from her I ordered her books directly from the UK. It’s amazing how fast they can get books across the pond in comparison to Canada Post!!!!!

    • MMD
      08/03/2013 at 9:13 am

      I really like him but what I love the most is his work to irradicate illiteracy and get kids to read. As an only, even though I was involved in a lot of sports and music activities, I loved nothing better than to curl up with a good book. It boggles my mind when people don’t enjoy reading. It truly does!!!! People can’t understand that there is a difference between being alone and lonely, especially now with everyone permanently attached to their phones, fb, twitter, etc. Kids today who hang out together spend their time texting other people. They have no idea how to even hold a conversation with someone let alone read something longer than 127 characters. They have no idea how much they are missing out on, not only the enjoyment/pleasure but they could learn something as well. DRIVES ME NUTS!!!!!! 😑

      Sorry about the rant darlin’ and donchais, It’s just like someone takes over my fingers or my mind when I get on this topic because I am so passionate about it.

      getting off soapbox now………………………………………….

        Agree completely, I was an ‘only’ too and have had a library card since the day I was old enough to get one. I’m reclusive but not antisocial and never lonely. My ex and I taught both our kids to read from the beginning and they are both articulate and well-read.

      • 08/03/2013 at 11:15 am

        Huh, I got the 2nd. and 4th., the others were on loan – I’ll give it a shot anyway. Re: Cornelia Read, a few years back, after reading her first 3 books, I was so impressed I sent her an email telling her so. She immediately responded, saying I was officially her favourite person for a day – I answered back by whining I was hoping for a little more so she extended the status to 2 days, cracking me up. I’ll watch ep. 2 now.

        Beans – you can download Zoe Sharp’s 1st book for $3.01 from Amazon.ca to your computer. You don’t need a kindle. Here is the link to the start of the series. If you like it book 3 is only $3.05. It’s a good series and will cost you less than a beer. πŸ˜€

        Damn – that link was to take you to the page not post the cover. It will still take you to the page.

    3rd episode – excellent, even more hooked. Going to ep 4 now. I am officially hooked and each episode gets better.

      08/03/2013 at 11:23 am

      Just found a regular Justified actor in episode 4 so it is now officially a must see series!!!

    • MMD
      08/03/2013 at 12:02 pm

      All I can say is OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! can’t wait until the next episode!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • 08/03/2013 at 12:34 pm

        Alright, just finished 2 and I’m hooked – thanks for the prod Toots and DP. Love seeing Lyle-avid fan of his music & acting. Thanks for the Zoe link but I’m a book-in-the-hand kinda guy – already have a hold on no.1

      • 08/03/2013 at 12:43 pm

        AND, my beer is only $1.85 per, we must keep our priorities in order Toots.

      • MMD
        08/03/2013 at 1:08 pm

        OK glad you’re hooked darlin’ and I do understand your priorities. πŸ™„ All I can say is after watching ep 3 I had to immediately watch 4. Now once you finish your Breaking Bad marathon you HAVE to watch The Killing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! To go 2 seasons and not figure out who committed one murder and get completely thrown at the end – priceless.

        After all DP and I only have your best viewing and reading experiences foremost in our mind πŸ˜€

        BTW, I’m totally a book in the hand kind of gal but you have no idea how many books I have purchased twice and completed online on the release date waiting for it to arrive the next day. πŸ™„

        I have 2 guilty pleasures – books and a cleaning lady (once a week)

    As for writing authors I have done it occasionally and always gotten an answer back. i always make sure they read their mail personally though. Jonathan Kellerman sent me 3 emails when I pointed out that he hadn’t answered certain questions. lol The final answer was “see below” but I got all my answers πŸ˜‰

    • 08/03/2013 at 1:54 pm

      used to love Kellerman but he’s another guy that seems to be mailing it in the past few years. Just finished 3, moving on to 4, but I’m seriously pissed. I was liking Marco until he fooled around with Charlotte (christ, this sounds like a soap opera) I’m a loyal guy that takes vows seriously. I was married for 24 years and never betrayed my ex. Took the BB dvd’s back so I could wait for season 1 and start from the beginning. I would be open to expanding my guilty pleasure repertoire if you don’t mind forwarding your cleaning lady.

      • MMD
        08/03/2013 at 2:16 pm

        Darlin’ BBad are all on Netflix. The first 8 eps of the final season were posted yesterday, remember I double checked for you.

        I totally agree with you about Marco however I have a feeling that he went there for more than sex and it will be revealed eventually. I have never cheated on anyone I dated or when I was married. I even waited a full year after I got divorced to go on a date.

        Yeah, I totally agree with you about Kellerman. He has been phoning it in and I’m no longer thrilled with Lee Child because there is too much gratuitous death. I still read them though.

        As for my cleaning lady, the commute might be a bit much but I will mention it to her. πŸ™‚

      • MMD
        08/03/2013 at 2:17 pm

        Besides BB starts on the 11th. You’re running out of time for getting caught up.

  165. MMD
    08/03/2013 at 2:19 pm

    Back to Marco – bear in mind his wallet was found in the guest room………………………… all may not be as it appears!!!!! (which I sincerely hope since his wife is pregnant)

    • 08/03/2013 at 3:08 pm

      good point about the wallet but he was still smooching with her(is that word still relevant?) After ex & I broke up I didn’t date for a year either as I was responsible for Nikko and felt he needed stability – after that I had a 10 year ‘friends with benefits’ relationship with one woman that ended only because we live in different towns now and I gave my vehicle to my son as he needed it more than I did. Not a saint, but what I believe in, I adhere to completely. As for Netflix, I just can’t afford it so I’m patient.

      • MMD
        08/03/2013 at 3:50 pm

        Almost got married again but decided not to. Really glad I didn’t. Have always remained friendly with all of my exes except my ex-hubby.

        As for Netflix, I don’t know whether or not I want to be committed to a monthly fee if I’m not using it so that is why I asked so many questions first and then went for the free month. I’m also not willing to pay a fortune for a bunch of specialty channels if there is only one show I want to watch in the entire tier or bundle.

        I am my mothers daughter after all so with the exception of my 2 guilty pleasures, she taught me well. It goes without saying though that I would spend any amount of money on my babies’ health, and I have some years, at the AVC at UPEI!!!!

    • 08/03/2013 at 3:12 pm

      were you relieved to see the creepy guy was really rescuing that girl or did see him as a red herring?

      • MMD
        08/03/2013 at 3:32 pm

        totally relieved. I was scared for Eva. The guy who played Bob wasn’t listed on IMDB but he looks familiar. I think that we have multiple stories that we aren’t yet privy to, which makes it interesting.

    • 08/03/2013 at 3:23 pm

      excuse me if I get too personal or reveal too much, just like connecting with someone with similar tastes and values occasionally.

      • MMD
        08/03/2013 at 3:38 pm

        don’t mind at all. I’m watching the Sessions right now and finding it very difficult. The lead played Sol Starr, the part owner with Seth Bullock (Timothy Olyphant – Justified lead) of the merchant store on Deadwood. One of the attendants was in Deadwood & Justified plus Adam Arkin (Justified) I keep telling you 7 degrees of Deadwood not Kevin Bacon πŸ˜‰

      • MMD
        08/03/2013 at 4:11 pm

        Wow, even Calamity Jane from Deadwood is on this.

      • 08/03/2013 at 4:24 pm

        I caught the 7 degrees reference before Toots and it made me smile, right with you. Back to ‘The Bridge’ do you remember Ted Levine? About to start ‘The Sessions’, so I’ll be gone for a while.

      • MMD
        08/03/2013 at 4:29 pm

        Yes Ted Levine is her boss. I wan’t familiar with him prior to this show. He’s good.

        I’m so glad I watched The Sessions as difficult as I found it at times. It is a terrific movie. We really take for granted how lucky we are.

      • 08/03/2013 at 4:50 pm

        He was ‘Buffalo Bill’ in’ The Silence of the Lambs’

      • 08/03/2013 at 5:05 pm

        Ah man, I’m a half hour in and it’s breaking my heart, love William H Macy in anything – gone for the night, see ya tomorrow, vibes for Daisy.

      • MMD
        08/03/2013 at 5:16 pm

        Moved to Winter’s Bone because John Hawkes got a gazillion noms for his part. Already have come across Garrett Dillihunt who played Francis Wolcott AND Jack McCall on Deadwood.

        You have a good night and thanks for the vibes and chat. See ya tomorrow darlin’. πŸ™‚

      • 08/03/2013 at 5:25 pm

        saw this just before I shut down – ‘Winter’s Bone’ is one of my fave modern movies & books – Jennifer Lawrence is going to have a great career if she avoids the trappings of celebrity. Thanks for the company, see ya tomorrow.

    Hey all, just checking in. What happened to the Sneiderman trial? She was batshit crazy too.

    • MMD
      08/04/2013 at 11:08 am

      Hey bubble *******waves******** How goes things. I don’t know what is going on in the Sneiderman trial because I am not watching it. The only thing I know is that the murder charges were dropped and that your description of her is completely accurate. One loon (no offense to the bird) a year is enough for me πŸ˜‰

      My focus is getting JA on death row sooner rather than later. How’s Stu???

      • 08/05/2013 at 3:14 pm

        Hey MMD, Stu, Mr. Torgenson, is doing fine. Bout to take a road trip soon. Up to Pocono Mountains.

    Morning Beans πŸ™‚ Come out for a break where ever you are. What do you have your nose in this morning??? I am deep into a marathon of Hell on Wheels.

    • 08/04/2013 at 12:58 pm

      Hi MMD, I’ve been watching a rebroadcast of HOF ceremony from last night – avid NFL fan. How is Hell on Wheels?, tried to catch an episode online but AMC won’t let me. That Helen Hunt is some kind of fearless isn’t she.

      • MMD
        08/04/2013 at 1:28 pm

        She truly is. That was a beautiful movie and both leads did an incredible job.

    • 08/04/2013 at 1:14 pm

      My back is really aching today so I think I’m going to turf Virgil out of bed and snuggle up with Zoe. Hope you enjoy your day, sending pats for Daisy – see ya tomorrow.

      • MMD
        08/04/2013 at 1:36 pm

        Sorry to hear about your back Beans. Are you doing all the walking that you’re supposed to????? I hope that you feel better soon and we are all sending you pain free vibes and thoughts. They’re coming instantaneously so you should feel some relief soon. πŸ™‚

        Hell on Wheels is absolutely awesome!!!!!! (esp. for Deadwood fans). Ted Levine was in the pilot. It films in Alberta and the cinematography is outstanding.

        I hope you enjoy Zoe. See ya tomorrow.

    good morning everyone, MMD and Beans.
    How is Daisy today? I thought about her all weekend. How is your back Beans? I’ll send healing vibes to you too.
    Breaking News!!!!!! Mother duck and babies ok, all are in a pen. The first mom has layed more eggs somewhere behind our shed.

      08/06/2013 at 8:20 am

      Morning dp. How is your mouth today???? Daisy is as of this moment holding her own and appreciating all of the healing vibes that she is receiving!!! Thank you so much.

      Glad to hear Mama duck and babies are all safe and in a pen. The first mama needs to be in one as well she is so scatterbrained πŸ˜‰
