Nik Walks the Falls and Give Us All Inspiration!

Nik Wallenda has entered history by becoming the first person to wire walk across Niagara Falls!

I watched this amazing man calmly walk across the roaring falls from my safe spot in the living room. I thought I was going to have a stroke just seeing it live on TV. The fact he wore a harness was a huge relief to me but it seemed to annoy him.

Congratulations to Nik for his amazing stunt!

His message was great too. He told us all to shoot for our dreams. He did and he got to live his dream!

Many people have tried various stunts over the years and most ended tragically.

If you want to read about some of the stunts gone wrong and the ghosts who linger in the Niagara Region, you should get this book:

The Birds and the Bees Is Ready to Order!

Once upon a time, I wrote horror novels for Leisure Books.

One of those books was called THE BIRDS AND THE BEES.

This book has now been reborn, a mighty phoenix rising from the ashes of obscurity...

Here's the blurb from the new version:

A paranoid fantasy, The Birds and The Bees is about what the title says it is. We learn to fear all sorts of flying things — birds, bees, hornets, wasps .... They are always just out of our consciousness, watching, waiting, their motives unclear. We also learn to fear all sorts of loving things — men, women, couples .... They are lying beside us, watching, waiting, their motives unclear. It's as if Daphne du Maurier and Erica Jong went to a party hosted by Timothy Leary, dropped acid, and decided to collaborate. A truly manic read.

Sisterwives Dodge the Law

In case you don't know, there's a reality show on TLC called Sisterwives about polygamy.

You know, most of me says grown adults can do whatever they like.

Who am I to judge?

However, when it comes to a show such as Sisterwives and they present themselves to the world, well, it's hard not to judge.

I still say, hey, do what you want.

My own questions stem from envisioning myself in any of the wive's shoes.

How on earth do you not get jealous?

How deep "in your faith" must you be to continue to have children when there is constant worry about money?

Where on earth do they get the money to build four houses side by side?

I don't watch the show very closely or religiously so perhaps these questions were actually answered along the way.

I myself don't see a happy commune when I watch the show. I see plump sad women who try to logically put their normal human feelings into boxes dictated by their faith and it's hard to watch them struggle with themselves. It's not what they say, it's how unhealthy they look. They looked unhealthy from the start so it's not like sudden tv fame is taking it's toll, though I'm sure it is. And maybe tv fame has accounted for some of the financial influx.  

It also amuses me to see how they own a gym. A gym? Really? Or did I dream that. Imagine the bucks that gym could pull in if the Sisterwives created some Mormon weightloss formula and they all got svele working out at their gym and selling their product.

Maybe in a few months the Sisterwives will be healthier in their new houses with their ever expanding family.

Kody must be one massive charmer in real life, that's all I can say.

At least the law is wisely keeping them from jail.
