Every year my town does a Christmas thing called “Shop With A Cop” and this was one of the photos from this year’s (15th Annual). 114 local, underprivileged kids this year got to spend a total of $150 each at Wal-Mart on Christmas gifts for themselves, family members, and school friends, thanks to a benefit staged by the police officers, firefighters, and local businesses who donated. 

I think it’s just nice to see anymore, especially with all of the negative media surrounding our police force throughout the country. It was really heartwarming to see firsthand how the officers interact with the kids - I’m an employee at the store and I have to say it was a blessing.

one thing I do find interesting about five nights 2 is this bit from the steam greenlight description -

In Five Nights at Freddy’s 2, the old and aging animatronics are joined by a new cast of characters. They are kid-friendly, updated with the latest in facial recognition technology, tied into local criminal databases, and promise to put on a safe and entertaining show for kids and grown-ups alike!

facial recognition linked up to criminal databases? makes sense to keep children safe and not allow criminals into the building, but it makes me wonder if the implication is that our player character this time is a criminal and the animatronics are after them for that reason. Interesting!!

There’s also this -

The previous guard has complained about the characters trying to get into the office (he has since been moved to day-shift)

which is cute haha

bella’s package arrived so i can post this 8) bagginshield fam 8))

the story goes that in the shire there are spring and summer festivals (miraculously faunts are always born in these seasons or near to them) to celebrate the birth of new faunts, and there they are blessed by the local matrons. ribbons are tied on the wrists of the parents and their newborn to represent their being bound together

(also - not fem bilbo!!)

Bellarke+Clarke's new neighbor is smart, charming, and handsome. Unfortunately she's also pretty sure he works for the local crime ring. Bellamy's falling for Clarke unfortunately he's an undercover cop investigating her for ties to local crime ring

I’m sorry this took so long!! It warped a little bit from the original prompt, but I hope you enjoy!

Clarke should have sold her parents’ house in the oldest, wealthiest suburb of Arkadia as soon as she inherited it. But with her parents both gone, it’s all she had left of them, so she decides to keep living in the big old mansion at least until she finishes her residency at Arkadia Memorial. 

And by the time she realizes that the Wallaces are moving in next door, it’s too late to sell. No one wants to buy the house anymore, or any house in the neighborhood, and that’s how Clarke gets stuck living next door to the biggest crime family in Arkadia. 

She’s mostly convinced herself it’s not so bad, now finished with her residency and working as a general practitioner in the smaller clinic across town. In general they’re quiet neighbors, and their yard is tidy. She keeps the shades closed at night so she’s not an unwilling witness to something that would get her thrown into the witness protection program, or maybe killed. So, not all bad, she tells herself. 

Clarke does have to interact with them a little bit, whenever she makes house calls to check on Maya’s health. Cage’s little sister is in remission, but still needs check-ups; Clarke counts herself grateful that Maya is the only patient Dante has insisted she see. She has no desire to become a mob doctor. 

But Maya is sweet, and young, and Clarke is pretty positive that her brother and father keep her far away from any of their less-than-legal proceedings. That means that Clarke is kept away from them too, and the only “employees” of theirs she ever meets are the men who serve as Maya’s bodyguards.

The newest one is the bane of her existence. All the others until now have been always older, always stoic, and always utterly unattractive to Clarke.

Bellamy is only a few years older than Clarke, he always has a smirk and a wink ready for her, and from the moment she first met him, Clarke has wanted nothing more than to jump his bones.

John 8:32


Jax was beginning to think he and Lyla should have spontaneously never come home. The last few days had been exhausting. The morning after they got back, he got to Scoops with Bobby showing him the newspaper had suspicions about local gangs being tied to the school shooting. That had ended with one of the Byzlats getting run down by someone, who had turned out to be someone who lost his kid in the shooting. But now today’s paper was about that and how the guy had killed himself. Jax knew about that one, since they were there until the police showed up, but now Nero was out at least.

But, he was at odds with his mother. His mother was pissing him off. she was constantly getting too involved, asking him questions he wouldn’t answer.  He needed to stop by Diosa to talk to Nero, and he sighed when he saw his mother’s car. He peeked his head in the office, to say hello to his wife, with a tired sigh.

“Hey, you having a good day? I don’t even think I talked to you when I got home last night and was gone before you got up.” 


CASTING ANNOUNCED for BBC America’s new drama, Tatau.

Joe Layton (New WorldsFather Brown) and Theo Barklem-Biggs (Silk, The Inbetweeners Movie) have been cast as Kyle Connor and Paul ‘Budgie’ Griffiths – the lead roles in BBC AMERICA’s new drama Tatau

Tatau follows Kyle (Layton) and Budgie (Barklem-Biggs), two twenty-something friends from London that set off to travel the world. Ahead of the journey, Kyle gets a Maori-style tattoo to celebrate their eventual destination: the Cook Islands.

When snorkeling in a lagoon, Kyle finds the dead body of a local girl, Aumea, tied up underwater. Returning to the lagoon with the police, Kyle finds her corpse has disappeared. But Kyle knows what he saw. Desperate to uncover what happened, Kyle and Budgie find themselves sucked deeper and deeper into a world of Maori myths, symbols, and hallucinatory visions… until finally the full meaning of Kyle’s tattoo is revealed.

Set in the Cook Islands, the 8 episode series, written by Richard Zajdlic, is co-produced by Touchpaper TV (Being Human) and New Zealand’s largest screen production company, South Pacific Pictures, for BBC Three and BBC AMERICA. (x)

Welcome back to the new and improved Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza!

In Five Nights at Freddy’s 2, the old and aging animatronics are joined by a new cast of characters. They are kid-friendly, updated with the latest in facial recognition technology, tied into local criminal databases, and promise to put on a safe and entertaining show for kids and grown-ups alike!

What could go wrong?

As the new security guard working nights, your job is to monitor cameras and make sure nothing goes wrong after-hours. The previous guard has complained about the characters trying to get into the office (he has since been moved to day-shift). So to make your job easier, you’ve been provided with your very own empty Freddy Fazbear head, which should fool the animatronic characters into leaving you alone if they should accidentally enter your office.

As always, Fazbear Entertainment is not responsible for death or dismemberment.

Because I know a few of you were wondering how you’re meant to fight back with ‘no doors’.

Vasari, Le vite, edizione del 1550

Ma quello che fra i morti e vivi porta la palma e trascende e ricuopre tutti è il divino Michel Agnolo Buonarroti il qual non sol tien il primato di una di queste arti (pittura, scultura, architettura), ma di tutte e tre insieme.”

Vasari stravedeva per Michelangelo, lo definisce divino, dice che supera gli antichi, e se ti fermi un momento a pensare, fai mente locale, ti rendi conto di quanto genio, quanta arte, quanta eccezionalità fosse racchiusa in un solo uomo scorbutico. 

Ogni tanto devo prendermi un momento di pausa dalla realtà e dal fluire del tempo per rendermi conto di cosa un essere umano ha potuto creare e solo io so come mi si infuoca l’anima. Amo con ogni cellula del mio corpo l’arte.

DOG CHECK IN. How you all going?

Well, I still have Beauty and the issues are still there and I’m still looking for a home but I’m actually waiting for a call from someone who works at a local dog boarding facility (that my friends Dad knows and spoke to about Beauty and her situation) who has ties to local no-kill shelters and police officers who look for GSD’s to work with so I’m hopeful I might be finding a home/foster for her soon! 

And Boe’s reactivity has gotten worse since Beauty but I’ve started to really  crack down and work on that so lots of focus and engagement games first since that’s the start of our issues lol. 

AND BARKOUR TRAINING because it’s fun and Boe likes it!

How are you and Thistle doing?? It looks like training is going well judging by your instagram?? :)

Mi son fatto torino bologna e bologna torino con blablacar sempre con lo stesso tizio a guidare. Non è stato brutto, tralasciando il fatto che sia all’andata che al ritorno siamo partiti con un’ora di ritardo, il tipo era un misogino, abbiamo sentito per buona tratta della strada canzoni diggggiù (perchè il guidatore era calabrese) e inoltre diceva che nel suo locale con 22 euro ti danno una bottiglia di vino con degli ottimi stuzzini che se ci vai con una tipa te la buchi di sicuro.
Tralasciando questi dettagli, tutto bene.
