Dear Future Wife,

I’m getting better for you. I am working on being the best person I can be; someone you are proud of, someone you want to show off, someone who makes you the happiest you’ve ever been in your life. To do that, I need to be the best version of myself. This has been something I’ve struggled with. I haven’t know if it was possible to ever be good enough for anyone. But it’s through my pain that I’ve grown and realized my worth. Through this realization, I am so excited to know I have the potential to be greater than I ever could have imagined.

Not only will I try to be the best wife for you, but I will be your best friend. I will most likely want to make blanket forts for the rest of my life with you. I will definitely always be ready to play pranks on you. And I’ll definitely always be trying to make you laugh.

Things aren’t always going to be easy with us. We’re going to fight. I’m going to piss you off and you’re going to piss me off. But here’s a promise to you that I’ll never go to bed knowing you’re upset with me. Even if I know I’m right, I’ll take a step back and realize there’s nothing more right in the world than you by my side. So I’ll let you win, and always kiss you goodnight.

I’ll be patient. I’ll be kind. I’ll be funny. I’ll be empathetic. I’ll be loving. I’ll be whatever you need and whatever you want of me.

You’re going to deserve the world. And although I don’t know who you are just yet, I know you’re out there. For that reason, I promise to grow into the person you need me to be.

Lead levels fall below federal limits in Flint, Michigan: state
Lead levels in Flint, Michigan's drinking water have receded below federal limits, state officials said on Tuesday, although they cautioned residents to continue using filtered water as work went on to replace the city's old lead pipes.

“Tests showed lead levels in the city’s drinking water were 12 parts per billion (PPB) between July and December, below the federal limit of 15 PPB, Michigan officials said in a statement.

Flint, a predominantly black city of 100,000, was under the control of a state-appointed emergency manager when it switched its water source from Lake Huron to the Flint River in April 2014. The more corrosive river water caused lead to leach from city pipes and go into the drinking water.

Lead can cause various health problems in children, and Flint’s contaminated water has prompted dozens of lawsuits and criminal charges against several former government officials.

Even with the test results, programs that provide water filters and related services will continue, Michigan Governor Rick Snyder said in the statement.

“This is not the end of our work in Flint, but it is one more step along the path toward Flint’s future,” said Snyder, a Republican who has been sharply criticized by Flint residents for his handling of the crisis”

It’s not over yet, but this is good news


Bacon is currently available for adoption.

Our breeding plans have changed, so we have decided to offer her first here on tumblr!

Bacon is a 2014 KSB 66% het anery bred by Kai Justice of The Urban Herp. She weighs 195 grams and has been grown slow, as we intended her to be a breeder. When she gains another 100 grams (which could be by this summer) she will be ready to breed.

She is incredibly docile and is one of our only sandboas that has never attempted to bite us!

Bacon currently eats f/t unscented adult mice every 10 days. She is used to a large enclosure and utilizes all floor space and vertical climbing opportunities. 

We would prefer NOT to ship at this time. We would like to offer her for local pickup OR free delivery to Tinley Park this March, any Midwest Reptile Expo in Indianapolis, or Kalamazoo Reptile Show in Michigan. 

She is available for 100$.

If you are interested in adopting Bacon, send us a private message and we will get in touch.


The Rich Eisen Show 2017

The Jenny Jones Talk Show Murder

March 1995:

The Jenny Jones Talk Show was, as the name probably suggests, a talk show hosted by Jenny Jones that began airing in 1991. Another likely obvious statement is that the Jenny Jones show was not hard-hitting news, but rather a televised spectacle often featuring subjects such as rebellious teenagers, DNA testing, and other sensational topics.

In March 1995, Jonathan Schmitz (24) of Michigan flew to Chicago to appear on a never aired episode of the show. He had been told by producers that he was being featured on a segment about secret admirers. The heterosexual Schmitz was led to believe that his admirer was female. He apparently spent money on new clothing to look his best for the appearance.

Instead, when Schmitz walked on stage, it was to laughter and teasing of the show’s live audience as he discovered this his admirer was Scott Amedure (32), a friend of his upstairs neighbor.  Visibly embarrassed and uncomfortable, Schmitz listened as Amedure detailed his crush on him. This included a pre-taped sexual fantasy about the two of them. When Jones, the show’s host, asked Schmitz for his reaction, he stated that he was heterosexual.

Humiliated from his awkward appearance, Schmitz returned home to Michigan. Three days later, 911 received a call from him admitting to the murder of Amedure. He had purchased a shotgun and gone to Amedure’s home, where he murdered him at close range. A direct quote from Schmitz to the 911 operator was “he fucked me on national TV”.

Schmitz’s defense was based largely on the appearance on Jenny Jones, as well as manic-depression, alcoholism, and a thyroid condition. He was sentenced to a minimum of 25 years in prison. His conviction was appealed, but he was found guilty again and received the same sentence.

Amedure’s family brought a wrongful death suit against the show and was awarded 25 million dollars.
