I Met Gene Simmons and Family!!

This weekend was exciting as I met Gene, Shannon, Sophie and Nick Simmons at the Boulevard Casino in Coquitlam, BC.

It was a "Show & Shine" car show with old beautiful cars and music and fun stuff to eat & buy.

There was a huge line up to get a picture with Gene and his family when I got there.  I probably would have had to wait for about 4 hours in the rain to get a quick picture with them and then be pushed out of the way for the next person.

So instead I waited in the crowd and eventually got to the front row to take some pics.  When I got to the front and was holding my chihuahua in my hands Sophie and Shannon saw my dog and said, "That looks exactly like our dog!" then Gene and Nick looked and smiled and laughed a bit.

That was so awesome for me as I seemed to get more attention that the people that stood in line forever.

Gene gave his usual "rock on" with his left hand for all the pics while Shannon and Sophie posed in their beautiful shoes and smiles.

Nick seemed to be having fun although he seemed a little awkward with his picture being taken.  It must be so weird to be a celebrity and everyone wants to take your picture 24/7 when you think you are just "normal".

Gene and Shannon seemed to be very happy in their "marriage" as I studied their body language a bit and there didn't seem to be any problems in their relationship.    Perhaps it is all for their reality show, "Gene Simmons Family Jewels".  They seemed to be in love which was very cute.

The only thing that was a downer at this event was that this security guy kept standing in the way of my camera (the one with the "Ping" hat on in my pics) and every time I went to take a picture he would stand in front of my perfect shot.  Also I only had my iPhone on me so the quality of pictures wasn't too great either.


The Simmons family was awesome and I hope to meet them again in the future..

The Defense won for Casey Anthony

Casey Found Not Guilty

Casey Anthony - Not Guilty

Today was a sad day for me and for most of the world.

Casey Anthony was aquitted of capital murder. She was found not guilty in the murder of her little girl, Caylee Marie Anthony.

The court room was silent as the the verdict was read over every popular tv channel in the world. There was silence except for Casey who faked some tears like she has during the whole trial.

It pays to have good lawyers doesn't it Casey?

It's sad that no justice has been served for that little girl. It was never confirmed as to who was her biological father or her killer is.

Everyone from "Zanny the nanny" (who doesn't exist) to George and Cindee Anthony was brought up in court as suspects to try and down play what Casey did and to try and distract the jury from the fact that Casey did kill that precious little girl.

I frankly don't care what the jury concluded and I know that Casey is guilty.

Going after Casey with a 1st degree pre-meditated charge might have been a strech considering that there was hardly any evidence. That is probably why the jury couldn't prove beyond a resonable doubt that Casey isn't a murderer.

I think that the José Baez, Casey's defense lawyer did a fantastic job of pointing the finger at anyone but her. They knew that there was hardly any strong evidence for the procecution to run with and did whatever was necessary to prove that casey was 100% innocent.From everything that was written in Casey's diary, from how her car smelled like decaying body to chloroform searches on this one website that she visited 84 times, you would think that it would be enough evidence to catch the "tot" mom in the ac but apparently not.

George and Cindy are probably broken now that Casey has gotten off and now they have not only lost their little grand child, Caylee but their own daughter for her web of lies that she has told for 3 years.

The defense made her father out to be a molesting monster as well as her brother so that she could play the victim?  Not to say that those things didn't happen but unless your guilty you don't usually bring it the victim card of abuse.

Where is justice for Caylee?  Do you believe that justice has been served?
