Looking for that second vehicle and looks or speed isn’t top priority, then I would suggest you head out to Pebble Beach, Calif. in August to bid on this steam-powered baby that still runs. 

You might want to run fast I can see Jay Leno drooling as this is a must have for him.

NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) — A steam-powered car, billed as the oldest car in the world that still runs, will be sold in a Pebble Beach, Calif., auction in August.The car was built in France in 1884, about a year before Gottlieb Daimler and Karl Benz of Germany built their first experimental gasoline-powered cars. (The two were working independently of one another.) Henry Ford, the man many Americans mistakenly believe invented the automobile, built his first car 12 years after this one.

More Rain Forecast for Texas, Oklahoma After Days of Flooding

Friday, June 29, 2007 


FORT WORTH, Texas —  Flood-weary residents of Texas and Oklahoma had no reprieve Friday as more rain fell in a region where two weeks of storms have swollen rivers and lakes beyond their limits. Thousands of people have been forced from their homes, though some residents were holding out, saying conditions are no worse than floods they’ve weathered before.A state of emergency was in place for all of Oklahoma on Friday, and flood watches and warnings were posted for river communities. A flood watch was in effect for 28 counties in Texas, where the storms have been blamed for at least 11 deaths.The chance of more rain Friday in the affected areas of Texas was more than 60 percent, said Jesse Moore, a National Weather Service meteorologist in Fort Worth.“The storms are very efficient rain producers, and if you happen to be under one of them you can pick up 1 1/2 or 2 inches an hour,” Moore said. “Right now with the ground being saturated, it’s all run-off and that causes the flash flooding we’ve been seeing.

Wrestler Benoit – Was it “roid rage”? Updated:Benoit Death Notice Posting May Have Been Coincidence

Friday, June 29, 2007
Fox News
ATLANTA — An anonymous blogger claimed Friday to be the person who posted a mysterious addition on the Wikipedia.org site that announced the death of Nancy Benoit to the world at least 13 hours before investigators in Georgia found her body, along with the bodies of her husband and son in what is believed to be a murder-suicide.

The confession said the changes to Chris Benoit’s page — first reported Thursday by FOXNews.com — was coincidental, and were based on rumors and speculation.

The authenticity of the posting could not immediately be confirmed.

Man With Headache Finds Bullet in Head

Thursday, June 28, 2007
PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla Fox News

Honey my head is killing me, either you hit me with your elbow or I think I’m having an aneurisum.

I wonder if this is what Michael Moylan 45, said to his wife April when he woke up at 4:30a.m. with a terrible headache?

She drives him to the hospital

Doctors discover a bullet in his head lodged behind his right ear

Authorities obtained a search warrant for the couple’s home which led to the arrest of Moylan’s wife April, 39, who is being charged with attempted murder.

Evidence indicated Moylan had been shot at close range by someone (hmm, and that would be?)

His wife eventually tells authorities she “accidently” shot her husband. (accidently, close range behind right ear sure sounds like an accident to me…. lol)

How many people can be sleeping, get shot in the head or anywhere and not know it.  This blows (no pun intended) me away. 

Obviously there is more to this than meets the eye which I’m sure will be uncovered as they investigate further.

Moylan did not undergo surgery, but was transferred to a trauma facility and his current condition is not known.

Chris Benoit Update: Authorities search and seized computers and medical records at office of Benoit’s physician

Thursday, June 28, 2007

State and federal drug agents staged a late night raid Wednesday night at the offices of Chris Benoit’s personal physician, Dr. Phil Astin, and took computers and medical records from Astin’s office.  Astin was at his office at the time of the raid and said he had prescribed testosterone for Benoit.

The raid came as a result of the investigation into the drugs found at Benoit’s home

Police found anabolic steroids in Benoit’s home, leading some officials to wonder whether the drugs played a role in the slayings. Some experts believe steroids cause paranoia, depression and violent outbursts known as “roid rage.”

Thursday, June 28, 2007
  

The WWE was quick to dismiss the idea of this crime being steroid related saying the findings indicated “deliberation, not rage” and Benoit last tested on April 10 tested negative.

No motive has yet been determined just speculation.

Jerry McDevitt, an attorney for the league, said the couple had argued in the days before the slayings over whether he should stay home more to help take care of their mentally retarded son.

McDevitt said the wrestling organization learned from the couple’s friends and relatives that the Benoits were struggling with where to send the boy to school since he had recently finished kindergarten.

He also said Benoit’s wife didn’t want him to quit wrestling, but she “wanted him to be at home more to care for the kid. She’d say she can’t take care of him by herself when he was on the road.”

Benoit’s son suffered from a rare medical condition called Fragile X Syndrome, an inherited form of mental retardation often accompanied by autism.

Patrick Bryan Knight – Dead man laughing execution no joke

Killer ‘not much of a comedian’ before execution

HUNTSVILLE, Texas
CNN.com POSTED: 9:17 a.m. EDT, June 27, 2007 Patrick Knight’s executions was carried out as planned June 26, 2007.  He had been charged and convicted of murder and sentenced to death for the 1993 killings of his neighbors Mary Ann Werner.During his time on death row he began collecting jokes, soliciting jokes in the mail and on a Web site, sometimes receiving as many as 20 a day saying he was going to use the time for his last words to be used telling a joke. He became known as “The Dead Man Laughing.” 
But when the moment came, Knight thanked God for his friends and asked for help for innocent men on death row. He named several he said were innocent. His voice shaking and nearly in tears, he said, “Not all of us are innocent, but those are.”
After expressing love to some friends, he said, “I said I was going to tell a joke. Death has set me free. That’s the biggest joke. I deserve this.”“And the other joke is that I am not Patrick Bryan Knight and y’all can’t stop this execution now. Go ahead, I’m finished.”Prison spokeswoman Michelle Lyons disputed Knight’s mistaken identity claim.“We fingerprint them when they come over,” she said.

Wrestler Chris Benoit – Was it “roid rage”?

Fox News TV aired the press conferenced today at 3:00pm Eastern time.  I watched as they announced the suspected order and time frame as to how and what happened and described the scene as follows:

The results of investigation into the deaths of Chris Benoit and his family was released today and ruled as double homicide-suicide. 

Friday: Wife Nancy was murder by stranglation.

Friday: After murdering wife called WWE told them he couldn’t attend the event Saturday night because his son was coughing up blood.

Saturday AM: 7year old son murdered by asphyxiation in his own bedroom

Off and on during the day he sent text messages to friends which are not being released.  Speculation is that they were scriptures taken from the bible.

Saturday PM or early Sunday AM: Benoit hung himself in the basement in his weight room.

There was no suicide note

The uncanny question is how could he stay in the house for 2 maybe 2 1/2 days with the 2 bodies before taking his own life.  The inclusive answer is the possiblity of what is called “roid rage.”  According to some authorities they claim when experiences this they go from high to low and can hear voices leading to the point they don’t know what they are doing.

I would think, pending full investigation, there could be a lot of pressure put on the wrestling association as well as the medical profession as far as steroids and their use is concerned.

Paris – (cat)walks out to freedom

I swore I wouldn’t post another thing about Paris but here I am.  I thought I’d at least post to get her out of the slammer so here goes. 

The time was 12:15  as Paris walked out to freedom.  She walked out seemingly shy but with a ever so slightly cat walk style and smiling that ever popular smile.  She did the slight waving to the crowd even quickly high-fived some bystanders hands just before getting in the car.  She obviously was enjoying the press and in her own way, at least in my eyes, playing the press. 

The Paris that walked out seemed to be the same Paris that walked in.  Here I was disappointed after hearing all about how she had changed, how she had found God in jail I was sure she would be walking out with bible in hand and held close to her heart.  Alas, maybe too soon. 

Mamma and Pappa Hilton were waiting in a Black Escalade, chauffeured of course, and mamma was holding a bouquest of red and white roses.   Once Paris got in the car and they were able to drive away, they were followed and surrounded by papperazzi driving dangerously close flashing snap shots as fast as they could from all directions.  I honestly don’t see how the driver kept from being blinded from all the flashes.  As they would come to an intersection and have to stop, the papperazzi would jump out of the cars and surround their SUV.  They followed them until they finally ended up at the Hilton Mansion, that would be grandma and grandpa’s place where a big welcome home party was planned.

It escapes me as to why so much publicity surrounds someone who has contributed absolutely nothing to society except being born into wealth and being fairly attractive.  Her claim to fame is “party girl” and obviously doesn’t or didn’t have time to read petty things like citations thus leading her up to her 23 days in jail without her blackberry and a mirror. 

I don’t blame her really or her sister, I blame her parents.  How could a parent be so ignorant as to let their daughter do absolutely nothing but party, party and party and be so proud of it.  Yet, between the public and the media Paris did nothing wrong but give them what they wanted. 

I sincerely hope that Paris means what she says about having had time to think and has changed.  Only time will tell.  I’d love to see her utilize her position in helping others in some way, whatever way she feels she could contribute the most.  I think she has a lot to offer if she uses her talent and her status for the right purpose.

To Paris, I wish her nothing but the best and hope she can make good choices from here on out and to her parents, I hope they realize their parenting skills needs fine tuning. 

And so ends my posts on Paris…….

Bobby Cutts Appears in court – Myisha Ferrall followed

The hearing on Fox News TV at 3:00pm

Bobby Cutts and Myisha Ferrell make their appearance in court today at 3pm

The sister and mother were in the court room on front from about 15 feet from Bobby Cutts as he appeared for his arraignment. Preliminary hearing set for July 2nd at 1:00p.m. with Cutts bond set at $5million. At the preliminary hearing it will then be determined if they have enough evidence to back up charges to hold Cutts and if so does it warrants the $5million bond.

Myisha Ferrell’s preliminary hearing was also set for July 2nd at 2:00pm and her bond was set at $500 thousand. Her attorney asked that Ferrell not be approached by any law enforcement without an attorney present.

At this point the charges are at the State level and not Federal. They still continue to say the case is still under investigation.

During this hearing Patty Porter stood up and looked straight at Cutts and Ferrell as if in defiance. Cutts stared back however Ferrell did not.

After the hearing the mother and sister of Jessie addressed the press and took questions for about 10 minutes. Patty Porter, the mother answered questions concerning her daughter and how the family was doing, etc. She did not answer any questions regarding the case. She held up well, as good as could be, and much better than I ever could have.
