Proof Positivity: Long Nails

me4Can you imagine having nails so long that they curl?  In 1979 Lee Redmond stopped cutting her fingernails which measured a total of more than 28 feet long in 2008, with the longest nail on her right thumb at 2 feet, 11 inches, according to the Guinness Web site.  Lee Redmond

Ms. Redmond’s nails were no more following a car accident on Tuesday.  She was not hurt in the accident.

I, personnally, grow my nails long and I am so active I break them just as often.  I don’t understand how you could grow nails like this not that I want to debilitating is the word that comes to mind when I think of nails like this.

A lot of little girls will be very happy as The Jonas Brothers new 3D and on IMAX 3D screens at midnight, on Thursday night, February 26. 

As a bonus available to every “Jonas 3D ticket-buyer, Fandango users will receive a free download of the Jonas Brothers music video, “Tonight.”

Jonas 3D has the potential to be the one of the season’s hottest ticket-sellers,” says Rick Butler, Chief Operating Officer of Fandango. “According to a recent Fandango survey, the vast majority of Jonas’ respondents say that the 3D presentation is a ‘very important’ factor motivating them to buy tickets to the film. It’s clear that passionate Jonas Brothers fans have been looking forward to seeing their favorite band in a way they’ve never been able to see them before.”

To be honest with you I have no clue who the Jonas Brothers are but the hype that they bring is like my being a kid and loving New Kids On The Block.   

Another Kudo For The Walsh Family

From The U.S. Attorney’s Office:


After a ten-day trial before Judge Patti B. Saris, Jeffrey Shields of Bath, Maine, was civilly committed to the custody of the Federal Bureau of Prisons as a sexually dangerous person. Shields is the first individual in the country to be civilly committed to federal custody as a sexually dangerous person.


In July 2006, Congress enacted the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act of 2006, Pub.L. No 109-248, 120 Stat. 587 (2006), to combat sexual violence and to protect children. The legislation created, for the first time, a federal civil commitment program for sexually dangerous persons. To commit an individual under its provisions, the Government must establish that an individual: (1) had engaged in child molestation or sexually violent conduct in the past; (2) suffers from a mental illness, abnormality or disorder; and (3) would, because of that illness, abnormality or disorder, have serious difficulty in refraining from future acts of child molestation or sexually violent conduct in the future.


Evidence presented during the trial proved that Shields had numerous prior sexual offenses against children. In May of 1988, Shields was convicted of making obscene phone calls to two boys in Wakulla County, Florida. In January of 1989, in Camden, Maine, Shields fondled the genitals of a thirteen-year-old boy after luring him to an abandoned building. In April of 1989, Shields committed an indecent assault on a nine-year-old boy in an elementary school bathroom in Florida. In July of 1989, Shields sexually assaulted a fourteen-year-old boy in the bathroom of a private school in Bath, Maine and in September of 1989, Shields sexually assaulted a six-year-old boy outside the same school. In March of 1998, in Portland, Maine, Shields engaged in unlawful sexual contact with a twelve year old boy. While on probation for his 1998 offense, Shields was arrested by the Portland MainePolice for possession of child pornography and Shields later pled guilty to federal child pornography charges.


At trial, three psychologists opined that Shields suffered from pedophilia, a recognized mental disorder. In finding Shields sexually dangerous, Judge Saris found that, as a result of his pedophilia, Shields would have serious difficulty in refraining from future acts of child molestation if released into the community.


“When the Adam Walsh Act was passed in 2006, it sought to strengthen federal laws to protect our children. The civil commitment of Jeffrey Shields is one step toward keeping our children safe from sexual predators,” said U.S. Attorney Michael J. Sullivan.


Pursuant to the provisions of the Adam Walsh Act, upon finding that he is a sexually dangerous person, Shields is committed to the custody of the Attorney General.


The case was handled by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Mark Gradyand Eve Piemonte-Stacey, of Sullivan’s Civil Division.


Nice Day For A White Wedding

This one makes my stomach hurt just thinking about it.  The winners of “Ben and Kelly’s White Wedding at a White Castle” contest are Rosemary Coones, 23, and Clinton Smith, 25, of Louisville. The lucky couple will be married on Saturday, February 14, 2009, Valentine’s Day, 2 p.m. at the White Castle located at First and Market (105 E. Market St., Louisville, KY 40209.) The couple entered and won the “White Wedding” contest sponsored by the “Ben Davisand Kelly K Show” on DJX 99.7 radio in Louisville, Kentucky.

Clinton Smith described their selection as the winning couple as “a blessing.” Clinton works nights at a warehouse so that Rosemary can attend classes during the day to become a nurse. They had originally planned to be married at the Otter Creek Park, but those plans fell through when Metro Louisville recently closed the park’s facilities due to the city’s budget shortfall.

Rosemary and Clinton will receive a 1.25 carat white gold wedding set for him and her from Gumer & Company jewelry valued at $5,000; a fully-catered reception featuring White Castle’s Silver Tray service; deluxe Valentine’s Dayovernight accommodations at the Galt House Hotel and Suites; a white limo; flowers; wedding photos; hair and make-up; and much more. A complete listing of wedding package details and donating businesses can be found on the radio station’s web site






Besides the unusual location, this wedding will break with other nuptial traditions. For one, the cake will resemble a stack of White Castle burgers. And, instead of traditional wedding music, Epic recording artists “White Tie Affair” (as heard on the MTV’s “The Hills”) will perform during the ceremony. The group’s music selection is expected to include the traditional Wedding March and also the song “White Wedding” originally popularized by singer Billy Idol in the 1980s. Packets of salt and pepper will also be thrown at the couple after the ceremony to “season their marriage.”

Wedding has Connection to “Safe Place”

The public is invited to attend the ceremony and reception that follows by making a donation for the YMCA’s Safe Place of Louisville at the door.

“We want to increase the public’s awareness of Safe Place and its services that help teens,” said Judge Byer, who will be performing the wedding ceremony and is also chair of the Board of Directors for Safe Place in Louisville. “The wedding at White Castle is a unique way to capture the public’s attention,” she added.

Safe Place Services is also hosting a catered rehearsal dinner for the coupon on Friday, February 13at its headquarters on Crittenden Drive in Louisville.
