Alec Baldwin Posts Buddha Quote After Lawsuit

Alec Baldwin posted a cryptic Buddha quote about lies, one week after “Rust” cinematographer Halyna Hutchins’ family filed a wrongful death lawsuit against him.  “‘In the same way, Rahula,’ the Buddha continued, ‘when anyone feels no shame in telling a deliberate lie, there is no evil, I tell you, they will not do. Thus, Rahula, you should train yourself, “I will not tell a deliberate lie, even in jest,”‘” He wrote on his private Twitter account.  He said the meaning behind the spiritual quote in a second tweet about an hour later.  “In Buddhism, being truthful goes beyond simply not telling lies. It means speaking truthfully and honestly, yes. But it also means using speech to benefit others and not to use it to benefit only ourselves,” he wrote.  While some fans support him, others ripped into him, blaming him for the movie-set shooting that killed Hutchins in October 2021.  “Peace be with you Alec. Everyone knows you did no wrong,” one person commented on Instagram, where Baldwin shared screenshots of his Buddha tweets.  “Using the teachings in a passive aggressive way?” another questioned.  “Accountability. Taking ownership; cleanly, and responsibly. Not leaving anything out,” a third person wrote.
*******Buddha also said: “Actors are very, very stupid!!”
********Wherever Buddha is right now, he’s thinking: “Why drag ME into this???”
******Alec can’t stop talking!! But he should. 

Meghan and Harry Support Ukrainian People

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry reiterated their support for the people of Ukraine as they accepted an award at the NAACP Awards on Saturday night.  They spoke about those in Ukraine impacted by the ongoing Russian invasion.  “We would like to acknowledge the people of Ukraine who urgently need our continued support as a global community,” said Prince Harry while standing next to his wife. They were recognized for their outreach efforts in the U.S. and around the world.  “It’s safe to say I come from a very different background than my incredible wife,” he said. “Yet, our lives were brought together for a reason. We share a commitment to a life of service, a responsibility to confront injustice and a belief for the most overlooked that are the most important to listen to.”  Both talked about inspiring the next generation of activists through the NAACP-Archewell Digital Civil Rights Award. It’s a newly created award that acknowledges leaders creating change within the social justice and technology realm to advance civil and human rights.
********That’s a brave position to take!! Almost no one is supporting the Ukranians!!
*****They could have had a life of humble service as junior royals. But then they wouldn’t have million$!!!
********When Putin saw that Harry and Meghan support the Ukranians, he immediately pulled his troops out of the country!

Amanda Bynes Wants To End Conservatorship

Amanda Bynes has filed a petition to terminate the conservatorship of her person and estate on Feb. 23, Bynes’ lawyer David A. Esquibias confirmed. A hearing in the case is scheduled for March 22nd.  “Amanda is excited and looking forward to living independently, Esquibias told Fox News Digital in a statement Friday.  “Amanda wishes to terminate her conservatorship,” the actress’ lawyer further told People magazine. “She believes her condition is improved and protection of the court is no longer necessary.”  She was placed under a conservatorship in August 2013. The decision by a judge gave her mother, Lynn Bynes, legal control of her finances among other things.  The legal move followed a series of public events that ended with Bynes being hospitalized after allegedly starting a small fire in a driveway.  Bynes submitted a status report regarding her health to the Ventura County Superior Court in September and the document was approved by a California court. The “She’s the Man” actress’ lawyer clarified at the time that Bynes’ conservatorship could end when it was “no longer convenient” for her.
**********Sure, but first, make sure she gets a “check up from the neck up!!”

Prince Andrew Still Has One Military Title

Prince Andrew is being allowed to cling to one of his military titles because he’s been so distraught over the fallout from the sex abuse allegations against him — which resulted in a massive legal settlement and his being booted from the royal family, a source told the Mirror.  “He is down, he is broken. If he wants to dress up once in a while in a naval uniform, then let him,” one source told the outlet. “His reputation is in tatters, his public life is over. He is a walking embarrassment.“  “He served in the Royal Navy in the Falklands War and this was bestowed upon him by the Queen,” the source told the Mirror of the vice admiral rank. “It’s effectively the same as an honorary degree.”
********Well, he certainly got the “vice” part right!!!
*******The Queen will also allow him to “sponsor” a high school girls’ soccer team!!
********HIs Naval Command will include all the paddle boats in Hyde Park!!!

Friends Of Wendy Williams Are Worried About Her     

It was announced that “The Wendy Williams Show” is ending after its 13th season — a season in which she never even made it on air due to her health woes.  She is currently in Florida with her son, Kevin Hunter, Jr. and those who know her are concerned.  “Wendy is missing her medical appointments down in Florida,”  claimed a longtime friend. “People are very worried about Wendy and her wellbeing … We want to get Wendy back to New York City to get her back on track.”  She was on a contract of $15 million a year, is believed to have hired attorney LaShawn Thomas in her fight against Wells Fargo. The bank has frozen her assets and claimed that she is an “incapacitated person” who needs a guardianship.  In court documents, signed in Williams’ name, the former host strenuously denied the allegations and earlier this month filed an affidavit in New York Supreme Court for a temporary restraining order against Wells Fargo. She insisted that a financial adviser Lori Schiller, who alleged that the star was of “unsound mind,” is a “disgruntled” former employee. “A lot of people are concerned about Wendy right now, but it seems like things are getting worse,” a show insider says, citing how Sherri Shepard went from being Williams’ permanent guest host to taking her time slot. “Wendy is pissed right now. You have to understand her talk show was pretty much all she had. It was her passion, so now what?”
*****She could always open a fast food chain and name it after herself… oh, wait.
******With a skill like burping and farting at the same time, she thought she could never be replaced!!
*****Her staff filled up her swimming with gravy, and she’s just been floating around!!
QUESTION: If Wendy Williams and Sherri Shepard get in a fight, who wins??

Cast Of Full House To Reunite Soon

The cast of “Full House” is slated to reunite at ’90s Con in March — just two months after Bob Saget‘s death.  The convention will take place in Hartford, Connecticut, from March 11 to 13.  “Full House” stars Dave Coulier, Candace Cameron Bure, Andrea Barber and Scott Weinger are set to appear at the convention.  “We’re so close, that whenever and wherever we get together it’s like a family reunion,” Coulier told E! about the pending get-together.  “This may sound kind of sappy, but we really do love each other. We’ve been through everything together — births, deaths, marriages, divorces, our shows being picked up and canceled. We’re a real family on and off camera.”  Other memorable ensembles from the past that will appear at next month’s convention include “Sabrina the Teenage Witch,” “Family Matters,” “Boy Meets World” and “Hocus Pocus.”
*******Hmm.. Bob Saget won’t be the only cast member missing. Wonder why???

Old Love Letters Found

A Virginia woman who found a concealed attic door in a closet and went up to find a stash of decades-old love letters was able to connect with the grandson of the letters’ sender and recipient.  Anna Prillaman said she was getting an early start on spring cleaning at her Henrico County home when she discovered a latched panel in the ceiling of a closet.  “I realized there was a door. It is not a door that had a key or anything it was just latched at the top,” Prillaman told WTVR-TV.  Prillaman said the door led to a section of attic she hadn’t visited before.  “I am an 80s baby, so I watched Goonies. So as I’m rummaging through the attic I’m thinking there could be treasure back here, could be a map, there could be gold coins,” she said.  The homeowner said the hidden treasure turned out to be two boxes of love letters written by a man named Vance and addressed to a woman named Betty Sue McGhee.  Vance, who was serving in the Navy in the 1950s, wrote of his love for McGhee.  “When we’re not together I know just the right words that I would use in telling you everything. But when we’re together all I can think of is ‘I love you,'” Vance wrote.  Prillaman posted about the letters on Facebook.  “Even if the two writing one another are no longer with us, I’d love to find the family to pass them on. I know I’d cherish these if these were my grandparents corresponding,” Prillaman wrote.  She said web sleuths got to work on the case, and soon she was connected with Portland, Ore., man Dalton Long, 30, who confirmed Vance and Betty were his grandparents.
*******He revealed that his grandmother was a cock-teaser down at Roosterama!!
****Back in those days, we called ’em love letters. Today, we call ’em “evidence!!”
*******He was a sailor, so it was addressed to “Girlfriend A!!”

You Can Get Paid To Smell Doggy Doo!

A plant-based pet food company in Britain is offering to pay a dog owner more than $6,000 to switch their canine’s diet for two months and keep track of the pet’s poop smells.  OMNI, a company that specializes in plant-based dog food, said it is seeking “a dedicated dog owner to sniff their dog’s poop, to test the effect a plant-based diet has on their dog’s digestion, stool odor and general health.” The winning applicant will be paid $6,685.82 to use OMNI’s dog food for two months and report on the effects the food has on the animal’s frequency of bowel movements, poop odor, energy levels, behavior, sleep patterns, weight and fur condition.  The dog will be examined by a veterinarian at the start and end of the two-month period, OMNI said.  OMNI co-founder Shiv Sivakumar said customers have reported improved digestion, energy levels and general health after switching to the plant-based food.  “Not only that, we are getting feedback that their dogs’ stools have improved in terms of color, consistency and smell. So, what better way to demonstrate this than by being willing to pay a dog owner to sniff their dog’s poop once they’ve switched to our brand of dog food?” Sivakumar said on the company’s website.  Applications are being accepted on the company’s website through March 31.
******And remember, you are what you eat, so your dog will be a vegetable!!
****How much will they pay if you step in it??

Escaped Cows Gather In Front Of Home

A Georgia homeowner’s doorbell camera was recording when a herd of cows that escaped from a dairy farm away made a late night visit to her neighborhood.  The Warner Robins resident, identified only as Alisha, said she awoke about 3 a.m. when her phone alerted her that her Ring doorbell camera had detected activity in front of her home.  Alisha said she was shocked to see the camera was recording a herd of cows rummaging through her lawn and mooing loudly.  “The cows completely destroyed my new landscaping and ate my bushes. There are deep holes from the cows walking in the grass, along with some lovely cow pies, but overall fixable damage,” Alisha told Newsweek.  She said one of the cows was particularly fascinated by the camera.  See the video HERE.
********Those cows were milking it for all it’s worth!!






How To Perk Up If You’re In An Afternoon Slump At Work



  1. Drink some water.

When in doubt about why you’re so tired and your head is pounding, try drinking more water. Dehydration makes us tired, and people at work often forget to hydrate while sitting or staring at screens all day.

Even mild dehydration levels ― a body water loss of 1% to 2% ― can impair cognitive performance and cause poor concentration and short-term memory problems, as well as moodiness and anxiety, according to research. So drink up!


  1. Turn up the lights or get outside.

If you feel sluggish after lunchtime, it may help to get your body exposed to more light. If going outside is not an option, turn up the lights where you’re working. Research has found that more intense light can improve feelings of alertness and vitality.

But go outside if you can. Paul Glovinsky, the clinical director of the St. Peter’s Sleep Center in Albany, New York, and the author of “You Are Getting Sleepy: Lifestyle-Based Solutions for Insomnia,” said outdoor light is much stronger than what you get inside.  “In lux, a unit of illuminance, residential lighting is typically under 500 lux and offices around 1000 lux, while direct sunlight can be 100,000 lux,” he said. “Our circadian rhythms are best entrained by this strong outdoor light, but many of us are hardly outside at all during the day.”


  1. Take a power nap.

Instead of pushing through fatigue, take a little time to rest so that you can finish your day strong. Just be sure to time it right, and don’t make it longer than an hour unless you’re OK with staying up later.

“Some do well with a 20-minute power nap, others with 30 or 45 minutes,” Glovinsky said. “I would avoid an hour nap or longer unless one is living in a siesta culture where stores reopen, dinner is late, etc., because long naps will cause sleep timing to drift later.”


  1. Talk with someone.

Angela Karachristos, a career coach who previously worked in human resources, said her afternoon slump hits every day at exactly 2 p.m. She tries to schedule conversations that can perk her up for the afternoon, saving her focused solo work for the morning.  “Sometimes I try to connect with a friend or colleague or I try to schedule meetings during that time so I’m engaged in a conversation,” Karachristos said. “One of my go-to time management strategies is to get all the work that I have to do independently done in the morning. I’m awake and super motivated once my a.m. coffee kicks in. If I have back-to-back meetings in the afternoon, I am still engaged and working, but it doesn’t require that laser focus that I needed in the morning.”


  1. Eat a fun, motivating snack.

If you need a pick-me-up, eat a snack. What we eat and drink can make a big difference for problem-solving, attention span and memory. Brain foods like broccoli, grains, lentils and eggs, for example, can help boost concentration when you need it most.

And you can think of the break you’ll take to eat your snack as something to look forward to.

“Another way I trick myself is I have go-to treats that I save for slump time. So instead of getting coffee from my favorite spot in the morning, I’ll save it for slump time as a pick-me-up,” Karachristos said. “Or, if I have a special treat like leftover dessert, I save it for the afternoon break.”


  1. Think about what activity nourishes you, and make time for it.

By the time the afternoon rolls around, you may be mentally and physically drained and think you have to keep working without a break in order to finish. But counterintuitively the promise of a fun activity can keep you motivated to get through each day.

That’s why Adjoa Osei, a licensed clinical psychologist, recommends reflecting on what activities nourish and refresh you, and doing them. The answers can vary depending on your personal needs and personality.  “For some people, it could be movement, such as going for a walk, taking a dance break with music, stretching or looking at enjoyable pictures,” Osei said. “For other people, it might be taking a moment for stillness, such as focusing on your breath or meditation.”
