Last night, I did a clean up on aisle 5. As a result, some familiar usernames were tossed out of the garden.

Your comments are welcome as long as they are courteous, informative, and add value to the discussion.

Trolls don't add value to the discussion. They attempt to derail the thread or launch personal attacks on other members. Trolls will no longer be tolerated in the garden.

The following are blog rules that you are expected to follow going forward:

STAY ON TOPIC. If you must go off topic, type "Off topic" or "OT".

You will be banned for trolling, bullying, personal attacks, or abusive language toward other Roses.

You'll be banned for personal attacks against the blog owner (me).

You'll be banned for using racial slurs or offensive language.

You'll be placed in Time Out for consistently going off topic without first typing "Off topic" or "OT".

You'll be placed in time out for comments about former President Donald Trump or President Joe Biden outside of a Trump/Biden post.

Sandrarose.com is a gossip and entertainment blog that will focus on more entertainment and less hard news (crime, politics, etc.) because those posts are triggering to some.

Thank you for adhering to the rules.

Materialistic Celebrities

Loyal reader Tasheena emailed her thoughts on my post about materialistic celebrities.

I agree with you 100% about these celebrities flaunting their wealth and not giving back to their people. I refuse to buy an album of someone who constantly brags on their record about how many chicks, cars, jewels, and how much money they have. I am not gonna use my hard earned money that I had to work my lil 9-5 for to buy ya CD only to hear you brag about how much money you have when I am barely making it in this economy. Shame on her and the others who brag about their wealth to their fans and their are even some who can't even stop to sign an autograph for the same people who support their brand.
