Someone in Los Angeles is going around leaving hundreds, and sometimes thousands of dollars in tips for servers in local bars and restaurants. The servers, waiters and waitresses who are sometimes stiffed on their tips are very grateful for the kindhearted gestures of the anonymous tipster. The person, or persons, who left tips worth $200 to $10,000 for servers, created an Instagram page where servers can upload their receipts called Tipsforjesus. The motto on the @TipsforJesus Instagram page is: “Doing the Lord’s work, one tip at a time.”

Several Sandrarose.com readers took issue with my write up on the death of actor Paul Walker, 40, who was incinerated along with a friend in a single car crash in California on Saturday. Officials are investigating to determine if Roger Rodas, 38, was drag racing when his $450K Porsche Carrera GT hit a pole and a tree and burst into flames.
But this email from former Sandrarose.com reader Tiffany Coleman was especially vile and vindictive. She writes:
Tell me, how much of your blog money do you donate to anyone or anything? I am sure you make a nice set of change too but not because you are such a stellar writer (because you really are not) but because of your Rose Garden…I am sure that THEY know were it not for their commentary I and countless others surely would have stopped coming to your site long ago.
Tiffany is blissfully ignorant of my generosity to my readers. I have given away countless high end bags, shoes and accessories. I have paid rent and car notes for my readers. Not to mention the thousands of dollars worth of gift cards I paid for out of my own pocket, and the Christmas shopping sprees for kids.
But this is not about my benevolence and generosity. Let us take a moment to remember the victims in Sunday’s deadly NY commuter train accident. Those innocent victims were not drag racing in a half million dollar sports car. They were just trying to get home to their families. Rest in peace.
The mother of a white teen who was taken away from her black legal guardians by Houston police officers is questioning the actions of the police.
13-year-old Landry Thompson, from Oklahoma, was in the care of her two legal guardians, who are black, when she was snatched by police after the trio arrived in Houston for dance training.
Dance instructor Emmanuel Hurd, his boyfriend, Josiah Kelly, and Landry were tired after a long day at the dance studio. The trio stopped at a gas station to get directions back to their hotel. After dozing off in the car, they awoke to find the car surrounded by police.
British chanteuse Rita Ora just scored a plum acting role that will make her a bigger superstar than Rihanna will ever be. The 23-year-old singer has been cast as Christian Grey’s sister Mia in the film adaptation of the best-selling novel Fifty Shades of Grey.
Ora made the announcement on her official Twitter page on Monday.
Brutal urban assaults on innocent citizens by inner city thugs continues to make headlines all over the country.
The so-called “knockout game” involves young punks sneaking up on unsuspecting victims and sucker punching them with enough force to knock them out. A successful “knockout” earns the attacker instant street cred and racks up “likes” on social networking websites.
One such attack that was caught on video is unique in that the attacker, Sharkeisha, appears to know her victim.
UPDATE: Sharkeisha’s beating victim, Sharmichael Manuel, 17, told KHOU-TV she was astounded when her former friend mauled her in such fashion.
The Houston teenager says the assailant and a group of girls set her up for the fight video, luring her to an apartment complex under false pretenses.
Manuel thought she was picking up some of her belongings. She was wrong.
“I was just in shock. I was like oh my God. Did she really do this? You’re supposed to be my close friend,” Manuel said. “We were talking in school earlier that day.”
“She made it seem like there was nothing wrong with her.”
The fight broke out over a boy, Manuel reveals, and after Sharkeisha finished the staggering assault, a neighbor drove the battered teen home.
Manuel was left with black eye and busted lip. She hasn’t returned to school since the assault, in part because she has trouble seeing out of her eye.
“It is hurting and crushing to me,” Manuel said, noting that the physical pain is just the start. “I felt humiliated, embarrassed and hurt at the same time.”
Watch her talk about the ordeal below …
