Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas! And if you don't celebrate Christmas: Happy holidays!

Christmas is not just about gifts and excess materialism, Christmas is about giving and sharing your blessings with others. I am blessed and thankful to have readers who support my blog even on slow news days!

In 2016, I pray that you are healthy and continue to encourage each other and lift each other up. Reach out to others who are in need and Provide for those who are less fortunate than you. Please be safe and make good choices as we approach a New Year.

Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union's celebrity Christmas photo is my favorite! The Wades reenacted one of the Jackson 5's photo shoots right down to the 1970s style clothes and afro wigs! In the top photo L-R is Marlon Jackson, Michael Jackson, Jackie Jackson, Tito Jackson and Jermaine (who is cut out of the photo). In the bottom photo: Gabrielle Union is dressed as Tito; Dwyane Wade is Jackie; Dwyane's son Zaire is Michael Jackson; Dwyane's other son Zion is Marlon, and D. Wade's nephew is Jermaine Jackson.

    I actually like Ciara. She's beautiful, personable, and very well-spoken. I think she deserves a good career (maybe not as a singer) and a loving relationship, but her choice in men....

    The last man used her for sex and the current one is probably gay. ?. Poor Cici.

    I really, really, REALLY dislike Ms. Franklin and I disapprove of any woman who is with Omarion. In my head, Omari and I were going to have a quiet gay wedding under a tree on Oprah's California estate. Oh, well.... ?

    "I see someone made an appointment with the fertility doctor" she young enuf to get pregnant with twins ain't she? Y u say that?

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    The high rate of twins among celebrities is a dead giveaway. It's a known fact that celebrities visit fertility doctors for IVF treatments to have twins.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I did. Thank you. I hope you enjoyed your holiday.

    The day after Christmas: This morning, Chicago police shot and killed two people on the city's west side.

    A 57 year old mother and a 19 year old male "college student" were pronounced dead at a local hospital.

    The 57-year-old's daughter said police thought her mother was armed, but she didn't have a weapon.

    During a breaking news report, several women were filmed weeping in the street.

    According to the media, the19 year old attacked someone before he was fatally gunned down by police.

    Apparently, witnesses heard up to nine shots.

    It's being said Bettie Jones, the 57-year-old mother of three, was shot to death when she opened the door for police. The 19 year old was shot after he allegedly attacked another male with a baseball bat.

    2 people were shot and killed by police.

    Witnesses said 57 year old Bettie Jones was shot to death when she opened the door for police. 19 year old Quintonio M. Legrier was shot and killed after he allegedly attacked someone with an aluminum baseball bat.

    It appears Jones was an innocent victim.

    According to information online, Quintonio M. Legrier had at least two previous run-ins with the law: one charge for obstructing a police officer and another for aggravated battery.

    Congrats. Twins and multiple births used to be very rare until IVF was invented. That many sets of twins being born to one group (celebrities) is highly unusual.

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    I don't like Cardi B loud ass, she too damn ratchet for my taste. King Cairo has a pumpkin head and Royalty's funny looking. I don't think she's cute at all. She's has the most unflattering features from both her parents. Chris's big ears and her mothers beady eyes and big head. The Knicks are better off with out Carmelo. It isn't like they're winning when he's there, bye Lala. Lil Kim looks like Mrs. Claus goes to China town. She reminds me of Mr. Yunioshi from Breakfast at Tiffany's.

    Happy Holidays to all you wonderful Roses (and to a lesser extent, some of you thorns and weeds)...you all and your comments have gotten me through many a tough time while deployed out in the sandbox overseas since 2006. This was one of the few websites that wasn't blocked. :eek:
