SERENA WILLIAMS… RANKED WORLD #1…. TENNIS…

serena-williams-1024x798Well, Wimbledon is on and Serena is where Venus many years ago predicted.  Well, somewhat… she actually predicted that she and Serena would be rated #1 and #2… which really isn’t quite that.  But Serena now is rated #1 in the world.  She is the top female athletic in the world… the highest paid woman in winnings ever.

But in her personal life Serena may be going through something.  She and Maria Sharapova, who is dating an ex- of Serena… 570_Maria-Sharapova-and-Serena-Williams-in-war-of-words-5896who had a recent interview in England during the Wimbledon Tournament made several statements that maybe Serena may not have totally liked.  Such as how Serena ‘should concentrate on her game.’  How Serena ‘should concentrate on being #1.’  And how Serena is dating her coach, who is married with kids… and leaving his wife for Serena.

Oh, my….  I am not touching that.  But it appears that everybody in London would love to see a Williams/Sharapova Women’s Final at Wimbledon.  Where Serena is, of course, slated as the favored no matter who ends imagesup playing against her at Wimbledon in the Women’s Final.

The war of words between Serena and Sharapova makes for a hot Wimbledon review… and the cameras and microphones are out to catch every word and picture of it.

Venus was forced out of Wimbledon this week due to a back injury.  So, Serena and Venus are not in the Women’s Doubles line-up at Wimbledon this year for the images-3first time in I don’t know how many years.  It is sad to see really the complications physically that Venus has had to battle with in recent years.  But she has a heart of steal… she just does not give up.  She plays when and as she is able to no matter what.  She is a champion… truly.

PAULA DEEN CHEF BY DAY… RACIST BY NIGHT… THE FIRST FAMILY…

Sometimes things just slip out when we least expect them to.

Sometimes some of the things we do and say may not seem hypocritical or hurtful to us.

Sometimes things just catch up with us.

Sometimes we pretend to be 1 way but really are another.

nup-156599-0064-jpgWhich of these scenarios do you think best fits celebrity chef Paul Deen?

When 1 of my next door neighbors stopped me to tell me this story I must admit I did not understand what she was saying.  I thought she was talking about some radio station DJ acting a fool again, like Imus in the Morning had done… before he got canned.  But it was not until my son began to tell me this story that I finally got a clearer picture of what my neighbor had been trying to say to me.

Not a big television watcher I really was not familiar with the 1371986353_3459_paula-deen-covername, Paula Deen.  Though my neighbor had said it and said it again several times, as if I should have known her personally.  But of course I did not.  But now that I have looked up the story, I have to admit that I had caught Paula Deen at least once tossing in a couple bars of butter into some dish she was preparing on the Food Network.

One could hardly say that what she said was purely by accident.  Meaning it was how she was accustom to talking… though never before the cameras.  And why not I wonder?

paula-deen-friedWell, maybe because she knew it was wrong.  That it was backwards and intolerable.  But however backwards that way of thinking is and talking… it finally caught up with Paula Deen.  Oh, yeah, she can blame it on her back home training and down-home southern roots.  But can that really justify what Paula said… or has been talking for years?  I mean she is a grown woman… a grand-mother at that besides being a big time TV chef.  So, she is certainly old enough to know that using that word or any word like it deen22f-4was unacceptable and offensive to many.  And that the times have long ago changed… when white people could simple use such words and get away with it.

Let us examine this in its totality.  Exactly what did Paula Deen say?

Well, it seems that Paula Deen liked throwing around the ‘N’ word.  She and her brother,  a partner with her is some restaurant they own together.   They both based upon reports liked calling some of their non-white workers by the ‘N’ word.   And Paula called a TV assistant the word a few times too many it certainly appears.

In a legal action brought against Paula Deen …and 1 possibly against her brother too,  images-3both are accused has having referred to African American employees as the little ‘N’ word.  In various news reports it is stated that her brother continuously referred to at least 1 employee as ‘a little monkey.’  And it also seems that Paula Deen was planning someone’s wedding… where get this… Paula decided it would nice to have a ‘plantation style wedding’ with some little (the ‘N’ word) running around and dressed up like slaves.279_civil-war-soldiers2eee

Now, how far in denial was she?

Who did she believe would not get upset or find that ‘offensive?’ 

There are people who just do not want to let the ol’ south go.  They want to pretend like the Civil War really did not happened.  And that the ol’ south will rise up once again.

http://www.nydailynews.com/entertainment/gossip/paula-deen-issues-video-apology-racial-slur-article-1.1379262

food_network_1340984494So, yeah I would say that Paula Deen’s out and out racists remarks and backward thinking deserved to get her booted off the Food Network… seeing that many African Americans love that channel, and many other minority people, as well.  And a whole lot of ethnic cooking goes on on that network.

In fact, many of Paula Deen’s southern style recipes have their direct roots in the African American style of cooking… whether Paula would admit to it or not.

So, lets face it we live in a big world… full of lots of people of all sorts… all kinds of nations and religions etc.  And the world and its people are forever growing.paula-deen_240x340_32

Is it not time that we put aside ever strife and ill thinking when it comes to people who do not look like us?

http://www.cbsnews.com/video/watch/?id=50149463n

But there are some people who just want to believe that they are more superior to other people.  That they are smarter… more progressive… higher achievers… more accomplished etc… etc… etc.  And there are... but it is just not the ones who usually think they are.

When you go back into history and really track this thing… if the  truth be total all civilization got its start in africa-bibleAfrica.  The first universities, libraries, mathematicians etc… you name it… architects, astrologers etc. etc… all of it got started in African.  In fact, scientists today are still mystified by some ancient ruins.  They are even still trying to figure out just how certain structures such as the pyramids had been built.

images-2The books say Africans were not seafaring people.  But historical events defy that lie.  In Biblical scripture, II Chronicles 8:18, it speaks of a man named, Huram, who was a master builder who had built up cities for King Solomon, for storage of his chariots and riches.  This man Huram also had servants who manned his ships.  Yes, the Bible said ‘ships.’  And it also said that this man’s men possessed knowledge of the sea.

Which goes to say that yes even way back then, thousands of years ago, in Solomon’s time African men were building large sea vessels and riding the seas.   When you consider the land mass of headsnew_3001Africa in Biblical times… Africa stretched straight to and included Asia.   Which takes me to another point and that is… that the entire Bible basically takes place in book(1)Africa… not in Europe except for when Caesar and Rome come into the picture, and those other places across the Mediterranean Sea, such as Macedonia and Greece etc.  As all the countries and/or nations as we know them today had not been birth yet… nor boundaries such as those of today, therefore, Africa in its time had to have been very powerful.  This is something which has never been reflected in any of our history books.

The history books also do not reflect all the great contributions and inventions created by African Americans even while in this country.  And there a tremendous amount of them of considerable importance not only to this country but to the world… but there is a reason.images

This reason goes all the way back to the myth and historical stereotyping of us that had been created and propagated by those who desired to keep what they called us back then black-history-month-pic‘darkies’ in their place.  So, the myth was that we were not smart… could not learn… were lazy and shiftless.  Also, as time went on it became that we were born criminals… and scoundrels… and not to mention that we were less than human… animals to be owned and bred.

And so… here we are today in the 21st Century still having to deal with old myths and stereotypes … and names made to keep us down… hold us back and seemingly needy.  They tt_index_mainwere created to hinder us and our children from ever achieving anything in this country… least of all any level of pride and our own sense of real self-worth.

It is interesting that this Paula Deen thing has come up when it has… as I happened to catch a portion of a television program Sunday.  As I have already made mention in at least a couple of my prior blogs, as well as, this 1 I really rarely watch television any more… but I happened to be over my sister’s house this weekend, and normally while there I try toarticle-2229201-15DC5D9F000005DC-555_964x693 the-first-familycatch up on my television watching… as there is really nothing else for me to do there except to watch television.  So, this show was called ‘THE FIRST FAMILY.’  It was… or is supposed to be a spoof on the Obama family in the White House.  Needless to say I found it to be repulsive and a slap in the face to our real First Family.

ReganI remember sitting in class and a discussion came up about a made for TV movie on the Reagan family during Reagan’s White House years.  Mind you that this discussion was years after Regan was dead and after he had long left the White House.  Yet, the outcry against that movie was soooooo great.  Every talk show hosts and news medium was doing a story on the uproar that movie was causing.  The TV network that was set to air the movie backed out… and another network picked it up.  But there were tons of letters …there were lots of phone calls… there were a lot of screaming and hollering over this movie about this man, Ronald Reagan, and how this movie would portray his legacy, his CPH-reagan-family_e6_400image, his years as a President etc… etc.. etc..  They saw it as being aimed to discredit Regan, and refused to allow the movie to air without a fight.  And fight they did.images-4

When you think of the Queen of England and how they hold her is such high regard and her position as Queen, they would never allow any sit-com to be made about the Royal Family where they would be the brunt of jokes… and made to look incompetent.  This is also the why they used to think in this country concerning the White House and the Presidency until…

Well…  until the Obama’s moved into the White House.

images-1I am very proud of the First Family, the Obama’s.  Compared to the vast majority of the Presidents who have occupied the White House they are truly a family to be put up as a national example of what a good family is supposed to not only look like, act like or be like… but is.  The President, Barack Obama, and his wife, Michelle Obama, are more than just great parents they are exceedingly good role models for those looking to marry.  They exemplify what 1 shouldCookingWithPaulaDeen_April2011 seek in his or her future marriage with regard to their husband or wife.  And how to ensure that your marriage works.

So, yes I find any show, play, television program or anything else designed to make a mockery of them totally distasteful and highly offensive… and clearly an attempt to be a slap in the face of President Barack Obama and his family.   It is beyond me if they really wanted a laugh how no one thought to come up with a sit-com on the Bush’s… wouldn’t have had to look far for material to laugh about there.

Hopefully, that show will get cancelled… and it never should have been allowed in the first place.  What an insult to all of us.

Now, going back to Paula Deen and her story.  Yes, she definitely deserved to get the boot off the Food Network.  I would venture to say if ever there was a word she wished she had 2ab-the-bishop-wifecoverprobably never learned… it was the ‘N’ word.  It cost her greatly… and rightly so.

Well, God bless…I hope you are having a great week.  I know… it has just gotten started.  But I can still wish that you have a great 1.  Stay out of the heat and work on getting something done.  me resized...And I will be doing likewise… and as you can I already have.  Another blog… FINISHED.

I thank those of you very much  who have ventured out and purchased my book… which can be ordered on-line at any number of websites… just google THE BISHOP’S WIFE by Bernadine Smith… and see for yourself.  And you can also read excerpts from my book on-line as well at Barnes&Nobles Nook, amazon.com etc…

Oafrican_americans_wwii_006h, before I end this just let me say for the record that I am not familiar with either of the African American history books whose picture I used in this blog.  So, should I at some time in the future ever read them… or if you do… and find them less than truthful or wholly without merit… please do not believe I suggested them as being that which they may not be.  And that is truthful with regard to our history as African people and African American people in America.

UP-DATE…Tuesday, June 25, 2013:   Just a little update on the Paula Deen story… something that I came across today.  The Food Network owns another network.  And Paula’s show on that network was not pulled.  Uh-huh…  How people do love to play games.  It looks 1 way 1 way… while they are doing something else another way.

Okay, now that the cat is out of the bag lets see what the Food Network is really going to do… on their sister channel…

SOME PASTORS…IVY HILLARD… Richy Rich…

I don’t know maybe it is just me.   No, it is not just me.  But this kind of thing makes me mad.  And not that I did not know thatimages this was what Ivy Hillard’s ministry was all about.  Because I did… since I knew he was clearly into prosperity.

http://www.christianpost.com/news/texas-megachurch-pastor-asks-congregation-to-sow-52-favor-seeds-to-upgrade-helicopter-blades-98331/

The reason why so many people are pulling away from the church or any kind of real Biblical teaching is because you have a lot of people who are frauds.  These people usually have mega-churches… wheel around lin expensive lavish cars… eat in the best restaurants… and live in exclusive places or gated communities.  While serving over congregations of people who are barely making it… and wondering why?

Now, I know in whom I believe.  But some people sit in mega-churches following these big time preachers believing that 1 day they too will catch a hold of the wind, and end up living large on some secluded beach front property.  But it never happens.  Least ways not to them.

First of all they are following the wrong thing.  Have you not heard, ‘Seek ye first the kingdom of God?’

hilliardbentlyBut they seek money… riches of this worlds… and the things these big time preachers flaunt in front of them telling them, ‘You can have it too.’5639952166_87f7662991_z

Yeah, right…

Well, they can.  But not by using tons of people to get it.  Because using people to get over is not how God works.

So, when Bishop  Ivy Hillard went to his congregation… or texted them… or sent out his eblast or whatever… about giving him $50,000 so he could fix his helicopter, more than half of his church congregation should have finally seen the light.  A bright beacon should have suddenly shined into their life if it had not already done so regarding who they were really following.  And I’m talking about the ‘real’ light.

Maybe even lightening should have struck them.  But however it happened or however… it should have hit them and knocked them flat on the ground.

What audacity.

Truthfully, they all should be getting up out of there, and leaving that church and that man with all his bills.   And we would see how long it would take for the auctioneers to start pulling up.

With his fancy suits and bright ties… he is just living too large.  And it has all been on them… his parishioners.

And he has not been ashamed to flaunt it.4d49dd3bacae9.image

Now, I do not get off on seeing people live well.  I like nice things myself.  And as quietly as it kept… I feel I live pretty nicely myself.

But I do not do it on the back of others.

I recall listening to hHillard’s wife speak at a T.D. Jake’s ‘Woman Thou Art Loose Conference,’ a few years ago.  She lead off by telling us about her and her husband’s airplane, how they each have their own helicopters,  or something like that…and I forget whatever T.D.Jakeselse said about their ‘things.’  But I found it all to be less than interesting.  It did not faze me in the least.

I understood what she was trying to do.  She was trying to get all the ‘ooooh’s’ and ‘ahhhh’s‘ persons caught up in what she was saying.  And I guess she did… because the following week she began having her own conference. And I imagine some of those ‘ooooh’ and ‘ahhhh’ people were right there.

But I think it is shameful for a preacher or anyone to milk their people… or try to con or milk people out of money.  Or anything else.  And I really think it 2ab-the-bishop-wifecoveris horrible when people of the cloth, in the name of Jesus or God, go about attempting to pollute the good reputation of God and/or Jesus by holding up His or their names in order to con those not smart me resized...enough to see through them.

I think I have expressed my feelings now…

Well, God bless…and thank you very much those of you who have ventured out and purchased my book… which can be ordered on-line at any number of websites… just google THE BISHOP’S WIFE by Bernadine Smith… and see for yourself.  And you can also read excerpts from my book on-line as well at Barnes&Nobles Nook, amazon.com etc…

African American woman running trackGot to get going promised a friend that I would do something for him.  So, take care and enjoy your evening….

Just 1 more thing before closing…  Let me just say get into the Bible for yourself and learn the Word of the Lord for yourself.  This is not to say ‘do not go to church.’   Because I would never tell you that… and that would be foolish.  But find yourself a good church that truly loves and believes in the Lord.  And whose faith is not founded upon filthy lucre… meaning ‘money.’

UNLIKELY HERO…3 GIRLS/1 MAN…Helper and another Killer of Dreams…

3WomenWEB_20130508104328_640_480[1]I have been thinking and thinking about this story since I heard and then searched and read a little bit about it.

My son was in Atlanta when this story broke, and I was sitting at the airport waiting on him searching for more information on the story via my cell phone.  While  trying to keep out a sharp eye for the airport police… hoping I wouldn’t get a ticket or be asked to move.

To say the least it both bothered me… and encouraged me.

All in 1 swift kick a man’s life has changed from dishwasher to super hero.  And he is indeed a super hero.  And in every possible way concerning this story.

Those 3 little girls… now grown women… and even to some degree mothers… may not have ever stood a chance of getting out.  Those 3 little girlsAPTOPIX Missing Women Found … turned women… lives changed the moment fate and a man named Charles Ramsey crossed pass by their way.

I cannot imagine how many people had walked by that house?

How many cries for help had gone out from that house un-heard?

How many times people looked up at that house and felt something strange or spooky about it?

But then came Charles Ramsey… a highly unlikely hero.  But that day his destiny and life changed.  368601-charles-ramsey-and-other-real-unreal-black-heroes-slideshow[1]From just a plain dishwasher he quickly has become a national hero.  And if not a ‘national hero’… then he should be.

We rarely hear his name.  Have seen some jokes about him.  But at the end of the day that man… Charles Ramsey did something phenomenal.   He changed a living hell situation into a bright and renewed lease on life and future, for some young women who may have thought they were doomed forever.  And may have been.

But it would appear that all but 1 held out for some ray of hope.  And it was her ray of hope that lead to all of them finally finding freedom.

Had not Amanda Berry maintain a belief that her life was not over… and that she could get out she might not have said a word.  Just continued being a shadow in a very dark and evil house… being an invisible lost soul… where they were all being held hostage as sex slaves, Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight.

http://www.dailydot.com/news/charles-ramsey-cleveland-kidnapping-rescue/

http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-201_162-57583564/man-charged-with-kidnapping-raping-cleveland-girls/

Or maybe it had been Amanda’s need to get her 6-year-old daughter out… that gave her strength to 2473878_G[1]continue to seek a way out of the hellish hole she had been either drawn into… or thrown into.  Mothers do have a way of doing that. They risk life and limb if it means saving the life or the lives of their children.  And who is to say that that crazed sex feign had not started looking upon her 6-year-old daughter… or gone beyond just looking.

Having been sexually abused as a child I feel these kinds of stories very deeply.  Needless to say I really hate reading or hearing about them.  But this 1 brought tears to my eyes… because the outcome was so great… and the horror of it so unreal.  One man changed the lives of 3 young girls turned women into something they may have otherwise never thought they would ever have again.  He gave them their freedom back.  That is what Charles Ramsey did for them.  It is like he rushed into a flaming house and carried them each out individually all by himself.

But ten years were stolen from them.  Their innocence lost.  But they are no longer under the abusive demeaning use of a1367952839_2842_Cleveland[1] man, who could have been nothing less than a highly inhuman sub-being.

I cannot imagine the type of cruel mind of a person such as the man who kidnapped those 3 little girls and held them as his personal sex slaves for more than 10 years.  A man who beat them in the belly to bring about the lost of babies he implanted inside of them.  And it was said that he beat the eldest 1 so bad that her face has to be reconstructed.

I guess that as the oldest little girl got older he wanted her less.  And then she became the 1 he used as an example of his power and will over them all.   By using that young girl as a punching bag… using her as proof of what he would CastroBrothers[1]do to the others if they failed to stay in line with regard to obeying him.

I imagine  this man to be cowardly… a bully… someone who would run from his own shadow.  Because this is the kind of person who typically desire to have other people under submission to them.

What kind of animal seeks out little children to perpetrate on?

It is like murders.  Did you know that most of them are afraid to die?

charlesramsey[1]So, they spend years in the legal system trying to stay their own executions.  But they took such joy in taking the lives of others.  And yet they fear loosing their own.  It is odd…

It is odd indeed the mind of people who perpetrate crimes against others.  I don’t even like robbers or thieves.  One may asked what is the difference between a robber and a thief?

Robbers are those people who actually confront their victims.  While thieves mostly like to steal while no one is looking or around.  Either way… I do not care for them either.

How could someone rob those three young little girls… their ages then said to have been 9 – 14… of their lives?

Their family ties?

http://tv.msnbc.com/2013/05/28/cleveland-kidnapping-hero-charles-ramsey-rejects-free-burger-reward/

RAW-FOXANDFRIENDSDOTCOM-2CUB4BGA_FNC_050713_07-39[1]That man took away their informative years of learning, socialization, public education on the primary level, friendships, family relationships etc…    But with 1 swift kick a nappy headed black man, by the name of Charles Ramsey… with a tooth missing in the front… gave it back to them.  And I am so glad he did.

Truly Charles Ramsey is a very unlikely hero.  But truly a hero he is.   And he is certainly 1 to me and I am oh but so sure to those 3 young ladies as well.

http://www.christianpost.com/news/fans-give-hero-charles-ramsey-14k-check-14-restaurants-award-him-burgers-for-life-but-not-mcdonalds-96544/

What a story of hope… triumph… and turn of fortunes.  I hope  and pray that each and every one of them fairs well.  That those 3 young ladies are able to recapture happiness, marriage and good 2ab-the-bishop-wifecoverfamily in their lives… never to be haunted by the last 10 years of hell that they were forced to endure.  But the very real reality of this story is how do their lives really ever get totally beyond what happened to them.

And I believe beyond a shadow of doubt that Mr. Charles Ramsey shall be forever blessed for hearing a plead and answering the call.  Praise themcdonalds-Quarter-Pounder-with-Cheese-Extra-Value-Meals[1] Lord…

I was reading where McDonald’s has offered him hamburgers for life.  Might be great for his grand-kids.  Though he himself said that when he heard the woman calling… he threw down his bag of McDonald’s and ran to the door of the house and kicked it in.  Hence, McDonald’s was introduced in this story.Vachter3810[1]

I really think that their should be less jokes about him and of him… and more charlesramsey2[1]respect.  Because what he did was so wonderful in terms of the lives of those 3 young women he saved from a sinking nasty ugly hole.  It was like a firefighter running into a flaming house and coming out with a baby in his arms.  No one would dare make a joke out of that… no matter what the firefighter looked like.  In this case… Charles Ramsey went running in and came out saving 4 innocent young lives.  And for that he should certainly be celebrated… no pick on or laughed at because he looks so ‘unlikely.’

urlBut the fact that Charles Ramsey does look so ‘unlikely’ really could be the story here.  But it is his a

ttitude about it too.  He simply views it as

something he was called to do when he heard the young woman, Amanda Berry’s pleading cries for

Heroes rarely look the part.  They come in all sizes… colors… religions… economically circles… but it is what is in their hearts help.

url1that separates them from everybody else.  They are people who forget about themselves and act because they see someone else is in need of them to perform something that might endanger them… but they they never consider that they just spring into action.  And that is what Charles Ramsey did… he sprang into action.

As for the other man in this story who I refuse to name… because I willme resized... give him no fame.  He was a demon straight from hell… who desired to killed the dreams of 3 very young girls… destroy their lives… and commit them to darkness and shadows forever.  But God said, “No.”   And He brought a man named Charles Ramsey into their lives.  Now, nothing will ever be quite the same for any of them.

Well, God bless…and thank you very much those of you who have ventured out and purchased my book… which can be ordered on-line at any number of websites… just google THE BISHOP’S WIFE by Bernadine Smith… and see for yourself.  And you can also read excerpts from my book on-line as well at Barnes&Nobles Nook, amazon.com etc…

 woman-relaxing-in-bubble-bath[1]I have been relaxing for the past couple of weeks.  Was very tired after getting back in town from Orlando.  Just about rested up now.  Happy to finally get this blog out.   I know… I know.  I do not write as much as I used to but it not so much that I don’t have much to say.  Just not enough time lately.  And then too my internet service at the house is down.
But most of the time I am busy editing video footage.  Trying to wear a bunch hats at 1 time.  But somehow or other I get it done.  And I am glad about that.lemonade-410x290_0[1]
So, please be patient with me.  I don’t forget my blog…  It just takes some time for me to get back to it these days that is all.9a1b5657-46d1-44fc-bf78-ecca2001fcc3[1]
Enjoy your week… and I will catch up with ya.’   And I am back to selling ribs… fresh squeeze lemonade… hot dogs… peach cobbler…for the next few weeks.  And this weekend I even threw some chicken on the grill too.
You know what?
You need to buy a sandwich sometime.  : )

JUST A QUICK NOTE…okay, somewhat of any update.  Everyone loves my lemonade and my peach cobbler is making a big splash too.

And I just came across this picture.  Never saw an insect like this before.  It looks like it is equipped
for war.

Thank you for reading this blog…and  my others.  Please be sure to continue to share this blog site with your family, co-workers and all your friends“pass it on…”  www.bsmith101.wordpress.com  ©2013
