“I see L.A. as a beautiful blonde with dirty underwear.”~ David Boreanaz

Never in a million years would I think that I would be writing about this subject matter.

I’ll keep it short, and I will also attempt to keep it as clean as possible as it really is NSFW.

However, floating around on Facebook today are several articles about a certain television program that is aired in Japan on certain adult cable channels. A contest called “Sing What Happens.”

Now I really don’t think something like this would EVER been  televised here in the United States of America. But it most certainly does exist in Japan in small and dark corners.

To learn more about this unusual television singing contest is a link below to an article talking about it:

Read at your own risk. [NSFW]

As for me ……. I need a life!

0harles_Vance_Millar“Having a baby is a life-changer. It gives you a whole other perspective on why you wake up every day.”~ Taylor Hanson

Throughout history there have been many fascinating and wild stories about the strange details of their Last Will and Testaments. Many rich people who give their fortunes to their pets instead of their progeny make them seem all that more eccentric.

Enter in Charles Vance Millar. Who died in the early part of the 20th Century in 1926. As a matter of fact, on Halloween did he pass away.

Millar, who was a lawyer and financier in Toronto, also was known to be a prankster and known for his penchant for practical jokes.

His will was no different from much of the stories that we have heard that had a bizarre terms to how his wealth was to be distributed.

He did not give his money to any beloved animal or pet. He did not give his money to some thing that was inanimate. Instead he held his very own contest. A derby for the citizens of Canada.

His will stated that his money would go towards the household who had the most children born in a span of one full decade following his death. StorkDerbyMothers-19361

After the Canadian Supreme Court found this to be a valid will and testament, the game and race was on. Finally in 1936 the Stork Derby came to an end during The Roarin’ 30’s.

The results came up with Annie Katherine Smith, Kathleen Ellen Nagle, Lucy Alice Timleck and Isabel Mary Maclean as the winners of the Stork Derby. These women all gave birth to nine children in the ten year period. Each of the mothers received $125,000 for the nine children.

In 2014 money, adding inflation and everything… that would be about $2.1 million Canadian dollars awarded to each winner!! ($1.8 million in USD in 2014)

There were two other unnamed mothers who received $12,500 each out of court.

Lillian Kenny gave birth to TEN children but two were stillborn.

Pauline Mae Clark also gave birth to ten children (five sets of twins) but they were fathered by men who were not her husband. Illegitimate children did not count.

It is also reported that the remaining part of the estate was giving to the Toronto Welfare Department.

I cannot imagine how Toronto went on during those years. Its hard to fathom just how many couples actually attempted to participate in this contest with dedication and purpose. How many of us would go through so much just to earn someone’s riches if that was to happen today?

Let’s do this!!!!

So I received a brand new wheelchair today, which was free of charge to me.

Someone generous went out of their way and had purchased a wheelchair for their wife when she was in the hospital and going through a period of recovery and therapy.

Very sadly though, his wife developed a blood clot in her leg and she did pass away very quickly after the discovery of the clot.

Today however, he gave me this new wheelchair.

Now I don’t have to worry about falling or having struggles trying to move forward or having it turn when I am trying to go in a straight direction.

But as with all wheelchairs in the past 20+ years… I name them. I mean after all, men name their cars, I name my wheelchairs.

However the past two wheelchairs have been named “Dark Knight” & “Dark Knight II” so if I was to name this wheelchair “Dark Knight” it would be III. It already was given as a suggestion on my personal Facebook page. As well as “Rawkin’ Roller” and “Panty Remover.”

But I decided to bring this idea to the blog.

What would be on the minds of my readers???? What would YOU name this wheelchair????? And I think that I will even go as far as to say that I will make this a contest.

So its pretty simple. Name the wheelchair. Leave your suggestions in the comment section. I will pick the BEST named suggestion before I leave for the NSP show on Saturday, the 13th of September.

RULES: 

  • If you have already given a named suggestion on Facebook and are reading this, then comment your suggestion. Only suggestions listed in the comment section of this blog post will be considered. NOT what was on Facebook. So the person who named it “Panty Remover” will have to leave that suggestion as a comment to this blog post in order to win.
  • Also tell me WHY you think I should name the wheelchair along with your suggestion.
  • Leave as many suggestions as you wish.  The more you enter, the better your chances.
  • You do NOT have to be subscribed to enter/win. But if you wanna take your chances at future contests, and be entertained… then subscribing would be a good idea. Its just not mandatory for this contest. At the very most, you’ll need to leave an e-mail address, which will NOT be shown publicly!! 

Pretty easy!!! Deadline is the 12th of September 2014 at 01:59 AM Eastern Time.  The winner will be notified by e-mail upon my return home of the NANCY SILVA PROJECT show which will probably be really early on September the 14th at the very earliest.

Prizes will vary. Meaning if I know you personally, then I’ll select something that I can hand to you personally. If you’re not someone that I know personally or are not living in this area, then I will have something that can be sent to you via e-mail, like a gift card or something.

Everything is subject to change. But until then. Have fun loading up the comment section of this blog post. And of course: GOOD LUCK!!!!

“If voting changed anything, they’d make it illegal.”~ Emma Goldman

Yesterday it was brought to my attention about this contest by People Magazine.

It is called “PEOPLE’s Real Beauty At Every Age.”

Contestants submit a photograph and then the general public votes.

And for once, this was a contest where voting was allowed that you did NOT have to sign up for anything. You weren’t going to be issued future spam by the contest holder. And it was free to vote.

And you were also allowed to vote as many times as you wanted.

I had seen contestants that had hundreds of thousands of votes.

From what I am understanding a winner will be chosen from each decade (20’s, 30’s, 40’s, 50’s etc.) by People Magazine and will be featured in a future issue.

The only reason why I know about it is because it was posted on Facebook and I went to see what the fuss was about.

This 31 year old woman named Shannon from Idaho Falls, Idaho was being featured in this Facebook post and come to find out that Shannon lives her life to help others every day and gives back to anyone that needs help. So selfless! And not to mention pretty.

But I was told “no flirting!” with her.

We were there to vote. And vote I did. In the 24+ hours that I knew that this contest existed I punched that button and clicked so many times that at last check she was over 9,000 votes.

Unfortunately this afternoon during a time of the day where this had actually slipped my mind that it was going on I had banged the side of my hand really hard against a table and its been throbbing and hurting ever since. Sadly its the same hand I use to control the computer mouse with. All the clicking and refreshing and voting came with a painful price.

But I kept on doing it.

As much as Shannon D. is selfless…. my voting through the agony of my arm hurting was my way of being selfless in return. I did stop and take a break when the pain was getting too bad. But when it would pass, I would go back and vote some more with the boring and tedious process of clicking and refreshing and then clicking again. Then repeating the process many times over.

Shannon thought that the voting ended at midnight Eastern time.. but I am still voting. So who knows when this is going to really end.

If you like what you see and wish to vote for this wonderful person then you can take your chances with the link provided below.

But be warned: I don’t know when they will close the voting. You don’t have to pay for anything or sign up for anything. Just click, vote, and hit refresh and vote as many time as you would like.

As for me and my hand and arm….. we’re defeated and I can no longer withstand the repetitive process any more.

I hope Shannon does well. She is at this point in the top 18 of all contests. I’d like to see her at least get to the top ten.

Vote for Shannon (if you can):

First things first, congratulations to the official release of “Last Goodbye” by BEAUTIFUL DISTURBANCE.

Having to wait until midnight for their acoustic music video was not so much the challenge, it was keeping my eyes for having tears again.

But its great music and its out now, so if you wanna know what I’ve been blubbering about, check it out:

So  on with the show now that the excitement is starting to calm down for the night.

COMPETITIVE EATING.

I have no idea why this came up to be a big thing with me as of lately, but one thing led to another I suppose.

I think that we’ve all heard or read stories on the news about how this contest was won by this person or how much this person ate and this record being broken. All done by competitive eaters.

For whatever reason, I’ve always been fascinated by this phenomenon. Because I don’t really know if I should call it a sport or a hobby or whatever.

I think though that for the people who do it, they would have to love food more than the average person. They would have to know so much about food and cooking to be able to be a better competitor.

I recall recently within the past few years a television program called “Man Vs. Food” and most of us may have heard about or have seen it. I kept thinking to myself even then… that I could do what he was doing. And to think that I could get PAID.

Until there was one episode where he was in different places that were local. Then he went to JUAN IN A MILLION. He took on the DON JUAN TACO CHALLENGE. Basically, he ate as many of the giant breakfast tacos that he could that was just stuffed and crammed full of potatoes and tortillas. And not a lot of anything else. I believe the record was seven. The host didn’t even come close!

And I thought that this was just a taco. Albeit huge. It was just a taco. I thought that for the longest time.

And then months later, my sister took me to JUAN IN A MILLION for a belated birthday lunch out. And that’s where I ordered TWO. Which I thought was a smart “test” being that it was only one-quarter of a goal to mark a new record.

I could barely finish 1¼ of a taco.

Sucker, that I was.

But I have pulled off other eating feats. I did swallow 62 Chicken McNuggets in an untimed and had no limits or rules. But I chunked down that many in approximately an hour and only ONE medium size drink. Give or take.

Never again. I didn’t touch another chicken nugget of any kind for two years after that. And now in 2014, my sister thinks I’m insane for ordering twenty.

A lot of people believe that the idea of competitive eating is a waste of food as well as unhealthy for the body.

So I don’t think that my career path is in this kind of eating. I’m actually an extremely picky eater to the point where people call me a bitch. Whatever!

It still fascinates me though. So I don’t mind watching the videos on the Internet.

 

Blog Giveaway!!!

Posted: June 24, 2012 in Uncategorized
Tags: , , ,

On the 20th of June of this year, I noticed that I had reached what I am calling a “milestone”. 

My view stats had reached 20,000 views.

I was thrilled. So much so, that I have in celebration have decided to have a giveaway as a way to say “thank you” to all of the readers of this blog.

December 2011… I reached 5,000 views.  February 2012… I reached 10,000 views. April 2012… I reached 15,000 views. And now 20,000 VIEWS!!! WOOHOOO!!!!

I know that a lot of posts are viewed because someone is searching for something specific. And I am also aware that others have come across this blog because of people doing image searches.

So entering this giveaway is going to be fairly simple. The rules are as follows:

  1. Be a subscriber/follower of this blog.

  2. Write a comment on this post. Not any other post but this one will be considered for your entry. For one, tell me how you came across this post. Whether it is because you ARE subscribed or an Internet search, whatever it may be. And then the other half of the comment, write anything you want. But be eloquent, don’t just write one or two words. Write something that will capture my attention!! If you do not say how you found this blog post, your entry will not count.

  3. Comments must be submitted BEFORE 11:59 PM CDT on the 31st of July, 2012.

So you have plenty of time!! This will also allow me some time to figure out exactly what I will be giving away. Right now, I am considering a gift card. But if anything better comes up that I can give away, I will do that. But since I am not Oprah Winfrey, my budget won’t allow for $100,000. I will promise you that if a gift card is to be given away, it will be for at least $25. Perhaps more if I can fit it into my budget.

That’s it!

For those of you who are already following/subscribed, you are already half way there.

The winning comment will be randomly selected. If you are still subscribed/following when the winner is chosen, YOU WIN. It will not matter if you know me in person or not. No favoritism will be given into consideration for this giveaway. So marriage proposals, although fascinating and curious, will not count. Nor will they give you any better chances of being selected as the winner. GOOD LUCK!!
