The autopsy report is just in. And the winner is death by accident.
Baden said that the final results of the cause of death would likely be available “within a week or two.”
“In any death, before arriving at a final cause, one has to gather not only the autopsy results, but also the findings at the scene of the death, the crime lab information and the toxicology results. In this situation, some of those investigations have not been completed yet,” Baden said. “But the information we now have does rule out a suicide.”
The link above also includes a gallery of Carradine’s old photos. He was no Buddhist or ascetic that’s for sure.
The museum killer has an affadavit that reads Obama was created by Jews.
There is a lot of back and forthing over what side Von Brunn’s old butt should be placed. He’s not happy because he has no money. But is that a reason to shoot up a museum?
Who wants this nut? The left won’t claim him nor will the right. But if it was done with a gun and an ideology then I would put the person in the right wingnut column.
You see that’s fair. Because the 9-11 attackers did not use a gun nor did they use a weapon at all, just planes and jet fuel. So we need to put them in the left wingnut column don’t we?
Does any of this make sense to you? I didn’t think so.
Dear Kai, I love this woman but she seems to hate me. I sent her a friend invite, wrote about her in my book and tried to get a mutual friend to give her my number so we could hook up when I visited California. BTW more of my photos are at my facebook account. My sisters and she lived in the same house with a close mutual friend.
But I’ve gotten no response from you. I know she is online and has a public persona so I won’t say anything bad. I mean I have nothing bad to say about her. But apparently she no like Heloise.
Too bad because Kai, you and I go back a long way through many past lives. Give up your bitterness or whatever, I have. We are both black women in the struggle whose lives have crossed paths once yet again. We don’t have to be cross with each other. You have a boatload of people on your facebook, many celebs. Well, I write about them and they are way happy when Heloise deems their artistic work worthy of an article.
Oh well, you will probably never read this, but just the same I am saying publically I would hope that we could do a project together in the future.

The French documentary Man On Wire, won best documentary at this year’s Oscars.
Wire-walker, Frenchman, nut, is engaging and so is his preparation for the life of a tightrope walker. He does not wear tights but his timing must be tight. His antics up on the wire are intriguing. He begins life crossing Notre Dame during the induction of priests. An illegal act, but not an evil one. Thus they are spurred on to bigger and better things starting with Notre Dame de Paris. I’ve been there and never tire of seeing it or Paris.
He dreams of walking the Twin Towers in NYC that have not yet been born, but have been conceived. He conceives in his mind that one day he will walk the wire between the two towers.
Man on Wire tells the story of how he comes to this with subterfuge and planning. It is fascinating and will rope you in.
Yes, my nephew whose mom is a nurse went online and found that his pain was due to an appendix about to burst. He told his mother about the pain, went to the hospital and had surgery ASAP.
She was amazed but I wasn’t. Why? Because I too have diagnosed myself. When I had just gone to the doctor, lost my job and found a lump on my neck and buzzing in my head. I said to myself I think I now have hypothyroidism. From my medical background I knew the cure was synthetic thyroid, or levothyroxin.
Since I no longer had health care I felt desperate. I should have just gone down the street to my primary care physician and paid the fee, but I am cheap. That cost me later to lose partial hearing in my ear also. But I digress. I went online and found a pharmacy in Mexico and later in India where I could order what I thought I needed.
I had no tests to go by and no prescription. I just made an educated guess. And years later when I had my job and health care back…my same primary physician took the blood tests and came up with the EXACT same Rx as myself and the same dosage.
The Internet can be used by real physicians too. Because here is Heloise’s all time best advice, but this is NOT medical advice, rather more like a saying “If you don’t know what’s wrong with you when you go to the doctor, neither will they.” Sounds shocking doesn’t it?
Well, that is the sorry state of medicine or the medical arts. They don’t know more about you than you do. But if you are one who ignores the body, because if you ignore it, it will go away, and just show up at the doctor with various problems that could spell diabetes, but you nor the doctor catches it for years, then you are out of luck. I won’t provide a bunch of links because you have to use your intuition and you have to use your doctor. They are human, weak and NOT all knowing. They are not the answer but the tool.
This is not medical advice but preventive medical advice. Know yourself is an old saying. Heloise is about to improve on that ancient wisdom: Know your body, yourself.
WTF? I read the fb blog about its new feature, but it said nothing about having 1,000 fans too! I want a vanity url and I need one. I don’t have a 1,000 fans and have not set up for a fan base. I thought that the vanity url would help me get there.
This blogger says that the above is not true. Vanity tags are for all users, but stars need 1,000 fans. OK.
In a blog post, Facebook announced the availability of the vanity URL system and outlined the process in which users could claim their Facebook turf. To claim a vanity URL (and thus a username), you will need to visit Facebook.com/username. On this page, you will be offered instructions on how to choose a URL or create your own. These new vanity URLs can only include numbers, letters, and periods – no hypens or underscores. You cannot change your URL once selected.
This post has shaken my faith in facebook. Facebook’s finds are just that. Usernames will be well, user friendly. What’s there not to get about that? Did this Daily Beast blogger get it? His article and some of the comments seem to suggest that he does not.
Here’s what I know and what I think about the change: when you signed up for facebook you used a full name, most used a real name, first name and surname. BTW except my sister , who used her old African name and her maiden name and not her real first name and not her married name.
Enter username. If my sister had used her real name, then she could have saved her other name as her username. She could be just “Afiya” and well, nobody will find her, simple. She won’t become a household name with folks finding her and invading her privacy. Get it?
But I too have an old Egyptian name that my ex gave me and if I use it, voila, no one will find me, except the few who knew me when I wrote under Net on a couple of Yahoo groups including my own: Theosophy Talks Truth–the first politico-spiritual blog.
Even using my name, my real name has not resulted in people finding me. Hell, I am doing all the finding, such as it is.
I don’t have dibbs, but I am going to try like hell.
It really, no literally won’t change anything. It will be as simple as going back to a screen like when you first signed up and instead of using your full name, two names, you can have dibbs on a single word as username, such as “Cher.” You will keep the name you signed up with on your facebook page, but have the other one as an extra hand.
Poor Cher, she would never get it. No, it would be gone in a flash, too plain too simple, but oh so recognizable. That’s the point. So for the blogger who wrote The Facebook Landgrab. You don’t get it, methinks.
