Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,April 7th,2016

.. this one is a real tear – jerker ..

.. Natalie duBose worked for years to save money . She wanted to open her own business . She loved to do cakes , cake decorating , desserts , and other items . Well , fate intervened …

.. Ferguson , Missouri happened …

.. [link] to the interview segment …

.. Natalie had just opened her business this spring . Then , the Michael Brown saga intervened . Not just one set of riots ,but two sets. The second set of riots , though , was the far more devastating …. a great deal of damage was done to her bake shop in the November riots …

.. well , America stepped up . A campaign was started on the crowdfunding site called GoFundMe . She did not know what would happen . Wow , did you respond … over $625,000 was raised , and Natalie was able to fully rebuild her shop … and then some …

.. now , with the notoriety , she has been able to ” go national … ” . She is able to accept orders [literally] from anywhere in the country . She has far more business than she can handle . She has 8 employees , and she is expanding locally , principally …

.. God Bless You , Natalie duBose , and Good Luck , Always !!

… Thank You Nick Searcy !! [#GosnellMovie endorsement]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,April 25th,2014

.. many of you know Nick Searcy for his acting on ” Justified ” on FX (I think) . I know him better from the crotchety security chief on the sci – fi adventure from a decade ago , entitled ” Seven Days . ”

.. not many Hollywood actors these days take loud public stands . Even fewer take those stands on moral issues on which they have strong moral stands . These folks avoid that stuff like the plague . Not Nicholas Searcy ..

.. In this case , it is a fundraiser for the movie , to be titled ” Gosnell . ” It is either to be a 2 to 3 hour TV movie , or possibly a 4 hour miniseries , about the actions and the story of the horrors of the now – infamous mass murderer and abortionist defrocked former Dr. Kermit Gosnell . He ran that hellhole of an abortion clinic just outside suburban Philadelphia for years , and got away with making many people ‘ s lives a living hell , ending the brief lives of many innocents . Even more tragic was the gross lack of media coverage of the trial , and the results thereof …

.. I heartily support this movie , Nick Searcy , and his fundraising effort . if you wish to contribute , go to : …GosnellMovie.com . It is a movie that is being produced by Phelim McAleer and his friends . It is Phelim ‘ s YouTube ad that I am hoping that you will go to see this very worthy contribution by Nick . He has guts . May God Bless everyone involved so that this movie can be made …

.. A big thank you ! to independent fundraising outfit IndieGogo for aiding greatly in this effort …
