Greetings On-Line Family:

Last weekend and this past week we all were saddened, delighted and distressed, by all that have taken place in the news.

The Sadness:

Young 50 year old legend Bernie Mac “Bernard Jeffery McCullogh” moved on to another place over this past weekend, he succumbed to his battle with  pneumonia, (actually they are reporting sarcoidosis - a chronic tissue inflammatory disease).  Bernie Mac was a true pioneer in the comedy industry and of course an extremely talented comedian.  He was an excellent actor, as well as a dedicated and loving husband, father and grand-father. 

  Bernie Mac was indeed one of the preeminent comedians of our generation, who was very funny and was “on top of his game.”  The "Original Kings of Comedy” feature film and tour he starred and headlined in was the first of its kind and really opened up a lot of doors for comedians.  We will never forget his weekly Emmy and Golden Globe Award nominated TV comedy series “The Bernie Mac Show” which featured him raising his ever loving  “TV nephew and nieces” especially the many issues he had with his oldest niece Vanessa (Nessa as he called her – played by Camille Winbush).  We sat in our living rooms and many of us were able to relate to numerous issues his series dealt with, and laughed all the way through the 1/2 hour show that ran for 4 season until 2006.  Check your local listing for re-runs.

Oh dear, his movies…his many, many movies!  To me he was excellent in every one of them - “Ocean’s 11” and its sequels; “Charlie’s Angels”, “Full Truttle”, “Mr. 3000”, “Guess Who”, “Transformers”, and many, many more.  Look out for his most recent movie “Soul Men” which is in post production and is scheduled to be released in the fall.

  We will certainly miss this excellent comedian and actor, and our thoughts and sincere condolences go out his family (wife of 30 years Rhonda, daughter Je'Niece and Grand daughter).  Bernie Mac’s funeral has been scheduled for Friday, August 16, 2008

Along with the shock of losing Bernie, we get news of another legend who “passed on” this weekend, and ironically both of these gentleman will be appearing in an up-coming movie together “Soul Men” (scheduled to be released in November). 

Now, tell me how many of you remember growing up and wanting to be Shaft “that bad mother %&*#&!%” (Shut your mouth)?  I’m sure many of you do.  This past weekend we lost the person behind this popular phrase, legend Soul singer, musician, and producer Isaac Lee Hayes, Jr.!   

  This dark handsome man who mesmerized me and many of you with his relaxing, sultry, and very sexy voice on albums such as “Hot Buttered Soul”, Black Moses” and “Shaft”.  The Oscar and Grammy winner will be remembered best for his classic and irresistible theme from “Shaft” (which won the Academy Award in 1971) and for the voice of the Chef on the animated TV show "South Park."  Additionally, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2002.

The 65 year old was found unresponsive at his home in Tennessee near a treadmill, and on Wednesday (8/13/08) it was reported he died of a stroke.  Visit Isaac Hayes, Jr. Official site by CLICKING HERE!

I received a nice message from Isaac Hayes, III aka "Ike Dirty" about how he is dealing with the loss of his Father 'Remembering My Father Isaac Hayes".  CLICK HERE to read his message, and to leave your thoughts.

These 2 gentlemen were phenomenal in their crafts, they were excellent entertainers, good men, and their passing leaves a void in the Entertainment industry.  Both will surly be missed dearly by many!!!  Our thoughts and sincere condolences go out their families and friends. 

Check out the following tribute to the entertainers (See below.)

The Summer Olympics began in Beijing, China, and the games are well on its way.  Sad news though from China - an American couple were attacked.  

     The husband Todd Bachman (pictured) was killed by a knife-wielding stranger, who stabbed him numerous times, and his wife Barbara was severely injured from the knife attack as well.  Mrs. Bachman (pictured above) is currently in stable condition after undergoing 8 hours of surgery for life-threatening multiple lacerations and stab wounds, she is finally able to speak with relatives.  Mr. and Mrs. Bachman are parents of former women's volleyball Olympian Elisabeth Bachman who is married to Hugh McCutchean, the coach of the U.S. men's volleyball team.  The attacker leapt out of window to his death.  No funeral arrangements have been made for Mr. Bachman yet.  

Obviously, these attacks and fatality shocked the athletic community and completely embarrassed Chinese leaders.  However, Chinese officials still insists the security is tight and they intent to strengthen their security measures substantially.


The Delight:

   United States of America has been doing excellent as they compete in the various categories at the Beijing Summer Olympics.  Actually, they are currently in the lead with the amount of medals won: 14 gold, 12 silver, and 17 bronze - totaling 43 medals.  China is close behind with: 22 gold, 8 silver and 6 bronze - totaling 36 medals; and next is Australia with: 5 gold, 6 silver and 8 bronze - totaling 19; and Korea is close behind with 6 gold, 7 silver and 3 bronze - totaling 16.

AFP-Olympics-US-swimmer-Michael-Phelps-gold-medal-190_1.jpg (6469 bytes)  Baltimore Maryland's own 23 year old Swimmer Michael Phelps is shooting to break the record for the most decorated gold medal winner.  So far he has won 6 gold medals (straight) within record times, and He intends to break the world record of the most gold medal wins by a single athlete "the winningest Olympian in history".  The record is 7 gold medals currently held by Mark Spitz - who holds seven gold medals in one Olympic, so Michael continues on with his quest for an unprecedented eight gold medal at a single Olympics.  We wish him all the best with obtaining his goal of 8 gold medal wins.  (Picture courtesy of AFP Image).

I understand 30 athletes from Trinidad and Tobago will be competing in the Olympic games: 25 track and field representatives, 3 swimmers, 1 competing in shooting and 1 competing in table tennis.  Actually, Roger Daniel competed in the men's 10 meter air pistol competition some days ago and shot a total of 571 points finishing 37th out of 48 competitors.   CLICK HERE TO READ and learn more about the Trinidad and Tobago 2008 Olympic Games Team.  Find out their names and the sport category they will be competing in at the Beijing China Summer Olympics Series.

CLICK HERE to log on and launch the Beijing 2008 Official Olympic Games Website, you will find lots of information there, as well as the schedules.


The Distressed:

By now many of you must have heard that Senator Hillary Clinton stated she is looking for a strategy for her delegates to have their voices heard and respected at the Democratic National Convention at the end of the month, and she did not rule out the possibility of having her name placed into nomination for President of the United States at the Convention alongside Senator Barack Obama's name. 

Honestly, I'm not surprised; only a little concerned.  My husband Todd and I had an opportunity to discuss this with some of our friends over this past weekend, and the outcome of our discussions were a bit distressing.  The gentlemen we spoke with felt Hillary Clinton will cause major havoc at this convention (to put it lightly).  The many descriptions we received about what will take place regarding Hillary's fight to be nominated as President was scary.  Tell me what you think!  Check out the article courtesy of ABC News by CLICKING HERE!  Click the picture below to launch a video of Senator Clinton addressing some of her supporters on this issue.

Actually, today (8/14/08) CNN has been reporting that Senator Clinton's camp and Senator Obama's camp have released a joint statement informing the world that Senator Clinton's name will indeed be placed into nomination for President at the Convention.  Hum....it seems Senator Obama has completely lost his mind, why would he agree to this...to any distraction that would impede his strong possibility of becoming President of the United States????
