Prince Andrew has officially been served with legal documents in a civil assault case launched against him in New York by accuser Virginia Roberts Giuffre.  Her attorney provided photos of Fed Ex receipts confirming the delivery of the lawsuit to the Duke of York’s attorney, Andrew B. Brettler, of the law firm Lavely and Singer.  “Pursuant to the Court’s order, on September 17, 2021, Plaintiff’s counsel retrieved two executed Requests for Service Abroad of Judicial Documents from the Court. Plaintiff’s counsel then caused the Requests to be delivered to the designated Central Authority of the United Kingdom on the Court’s behalf by FedEx, along with two requests of the Complaint, Summons, and Civil Cover Sheet in this matter,” a court document filed Monday by Virgina Giuffre’s lawyer states in the filing.  The court papers state Giuffre’s legal team sent the summons and complaint to Brettler at his Los Angeles office and also “emailed” the documents, per the court’s order approving alternative service.

Bachelor In Paradise Evacuates Set

The cast of “Bachelor in Paradise” Season 7 was forced to evacuate when a tropical storm pummeled their filming location in Mexico earlier this summer.  In Tuesday’s episode of the ABC spinoff, cast members were seen packing up and leaving the set at the Playa Escondida resort in the oceanside village of Sayulita as production was temporarily halted over the storm.  “I know you guys are all expecting there to be a cocktail party and a rose ceremony tonight. Unfortunately, that will not be happening,” a producer informed the cast. “There’s a dangerous tropical storm rapidly approaching, and as of an hour ago, it’s heading straight for us.”  The producer added, “For the safety for all of you guys, our staff and our crew, we are recommending that we evacuate immediately.”  Producers were then seen covering the set with tarps and stacking up furniture as the cast piled into vans to make their escape.  The beach, which sits on the coast of the Pacific Ocean, was hit hard by the storm, but fortunately, it appeared there was no serious damage. Cast members returned the next morning to their regularly scheduled activities — in this case, a daytime cocktail party.
********That’s God’s way of saying, “YOU’RE CANCELED!!!!”
********They were back the next day, working hard at being sluts!!!
*******If there’s any blowing going on, it won’t be a hurricane!!!!

Britney Wants Conservatorship Gone Fast!

Britney Spears and her lawyer, Matt Rosengart, just filed documents setting the stage to end the conservatorship this Fall.  Rosengart just filed legal docs in which he agrees with Jamie Spears on one point — the conservatorship no longer serves a legitimate purpose and should end immediately. Furthermore, Rosengart agrees with Jamie that the conservatorship should be terminated without any further medical evaluation … something Britney expressed to the judge back in June.  He says there have been changed circumstances that warrant the end of the conservatorship … namely the judge already allowed Britney to select her own lawyer … the point being she has the “capacity and capability to identify, engage, and instruct counsel of her own choice.”  In the docs, Rosengart quotes Jamie’s document , “If Ms. Spears wants to terminate the conservatorship and believes that she can handle her own life, Mr. Spears believes that she should get that chance.”  Britney is asking that a “termination plan” be formulated immediately so the conservatorship could wind down in its entirety.
*******Britney said, “Let’s get my dad out of here, so I can start losing my money!!”

One Last Thing:  Maura Tierney-(People)

The actress, 56, stars in Showtime’s new drama series American Rust.

Last thing I discovered about myself-

Last time I was nervous-

Driving in Pittsburgh.  It’s like off-ramps, on-ramps, you get off a bridge onto a highway.  They drive so fast and love to tailgate.  It’s so anxious-making.

Last moment of bliss-

I was having a family vacation, and I was in the ocean with two of my nephews. I love being in the water, and I haven’t gotten to see these kids in a while, so we just had a really fun time.

Monkey Loose In Indiana!

A rumored monkey spotted in an Indiana city was confirmed to exist when it was caught on video in a hotel parking lot.  Bloomington Animal Care and Control said the first monkey sighting was reported Sept. 8, when several people reported seeing a man riding a scooter with a monkey on his back.  Reports of the sighting also were posted to social media by witnesses, but no photos or videos emerged.  More reports were received the following day when a man was reported to be spotted with an untethered monkey wandering in Bryan Park.  Animal control was unable to verify the sightings, but Fort Wayne resident Kinta Dowdell captured video after he spotted the monkey wandering loose in the parking lot of the TownePlace Suites by Marriott.  Dowdell said the monkey was on the loose in the parking lot for a short time while a young man and woman worked to wrangle it into a cage.  “It was just running around loose,” Dowdell told The Herald-Times newspaper. “The monkey was obviously doing whatever it wanted to do.”
********That’s what monkeys do!!! Whatever they wanna do!!!

Escaped Cat Found On JFK Tarmac

A cat that escaped from a carrier while being loaded onto an Italy-bound flight was captured safely after three weeks of wandering around the tarmac at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport.  John Debacker, vice president of nonprofit animal rescue group Long Island Cat Kitten Solution, said Salvatore Fazio, a man who lives part-time in Mastic Beach, arrived in Italy to find his cat, Ettore, had escaped from his carrier before being loaded into the plane.  Debacker said it was difficult to get permission to search for Ettore on the runway area.  “It was quite difficult to get clearance. My friend Teddy Henn and I were hanging flyers in the terminal when a Port Authority worker noticed a collar found near the runway’s edge by the water matched the flyer description,” Debacker told Patch.  Debecker said he set up an overnight camera that managed to capture a glimpse of the wandering feline on the first night, allowing him to set a humane trap that managed to ensnare Ettore about 1 a.m.  “The owner was very happy,” Debacker said.
*********Of course, the cat was stuffed with heroin, but other than that…. heartwarming!!
********Thank goodness they found the cat… because there are no other cats in Italy!!!

However, I wasn’t contemplating purchasing an entry for myself,” the player said. “When I scanned my last entry at the outlet, they gave me a bonus ticket that I’d won.”  The free ticket earned the woman a $72,300.50 jackpot.  The winner said she plans to use her winnings to take care of her family.

What’s Your Next Big Purchase? 5 Tips for Saving Up for It Faster



  1. See if You Can Get More Money From This Company

Here’s the deal: If you’re not using Aspiration’s debit card, you’re missing out on extra cash. And you’re going to need extra cash for your splurge.

Try a debit card called Aspiration, which gives you up to 5% back every time you swipe.

Need to buy groceries? Extra cash.

Need to fill up the tank? Bam. Even more extra cash.

You were going to buy these things anyway — why not get this extra money in the process?


  1. Add $225 to Your Wallet Just for Watching the News

Every little bit helps. Here’s a way to make a little extra money:

It’s been a historic time for news, and we’re all constantly refreshing for the latest updates. You probably know more than one news-junkie who fancies themselves an expert in respiratory illness or a political mastermind.

And research companies want to pay you to keep watching. You could add up to $225 a month to your pocket by signing up for a free account with InboxDollars. They’ll present you with short news clips to choose from every day, then ask you a few questions about them.

You just have to answer honestly, and InboxDollars will continue to pay you every month. This might sound too good to be true, but it’s already paid its users more than $56 million.


  1. Get Paid Every Time You Buy Groceries

Here’s another example of how every little bit helps get you closer to your goal.

A free app called Fetch Rewards will reward you with gift cards just for buying toilet paper and more than 250 other items at the grocery store.

Here’s how it works: After you’ve downloaded the app, just take a picture of your receipt showing you purchased an item from one of the brands listed in Fetch. For your efforts, you’ll earn gift cards to places like Amazon or Walmart.

You can download the free Fetch Rewards app here to start getting free gift cards. Over a million people already have, so they must be onto something.


  1. Stop Paying Your Credit Card Company

Credit card debt is the most expensive kind of debt, and your credit card company is just getting rich by ripping you off with high interest rates. But a website called AmOne can help you fight back.

If you owe your credit card companies $50,000 or less, AmOne will match you with a low-interest loan you can use to pay off every single one of your balances.

The benefit? You’ll be left with one bill to pay each month. And because personal loans have lower interest rates (AmOne rates start at 2.49% APR), you’ll get out of debt that much faster. Plus: No credit card payment this month.

AmOne keeps your information confidential and secure, which is probably why after 20 years in business, it still has an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau.

It takes two minutes to see if you qualify for up to $50,000 online. You do need to give AmOne a real phone number in order to qualify, but don’t worry — they won’t spam you with phone calls.


  1. Find Out If You’re Overpaying

Wouldn’t it be nice if you got an alert when you’re shopping online at Target and are about to overpay?

That’s exactly what this free service does.

Just add it to your browser for free, and before you check out, it’ll check other websites, including Walmart, eBay and others to see if your item is available for cheaper. Plus, you can get coupon codes, set up price-drop alerts and even see the item’s price history.

Let’s say you’re shopping for a new TV, and you assume you’ve found the best price. Here’s when you’ll get a pop up letting you know if that exact TV is available elsewhere for cheaper. If there are any available coupon codes, they’ll also automatically be applied to your order.

In the last year, this has saved people $160 million.
