Big Brother: Over the Top Info
|
Live Feeds | Player Rankings | Alliances | Schedule

Well then, I can’t say I saw this coming.

I started blogging Big Brother 13, and one of my first posts about the show was to reveal Dick had already left before the feeds went live to viewers. It was a pretty big let down and many wondered if it was just a way to guarantee Danielle a trip deep in the game.

During the season, the twist was to play the season as couples.  They brought in 3 couples of former players (Brandon/Rachel, Jeff/Jordan, Dick/Danielle) and put them against newbies who just met their partner that season – because that was totally fair. As part of the twist, when your partner gets evicted, you get a golden key that made the players safe until the twist was over.

When the feeds went live to see Danielle was safe for at least a few weeks, the rumors speculated Dick never really wanted to go on the show and just agreed to so he can leave and give his daughter a better shot. Of course, there were a ton of rumors, but that was the most active and plausible at the time.  I think that rumor appeared to be the accepted reason when Dick shot down a lot of other theories (sick or dying relatives, etc).

Honestly, I was starting to just accept we’ll never really know why he left until just recently when Dick said he was going to reveal it during his time on Couples Therapy this season.  Well, the time finally came, and it was .. shocking to say the least.

Dick revealed the reason he left Big Brother 13 is due to being told his bloodwork came back HIV positive.

Out of many theories I heard that season, I don’t think being HIV positive was one of them.  To say this is unexpected is an understatement, and I wish him the best of luck going forward.  He said for the rest of his life, he has to take a pill a day and expects to die of something other than HIV or AIDS one day, so it certainly isn’t the death sentence it was back in the 80’s.  I’m sure it was still shocking news to him and it’s no wonder he left.

    Hi Steve. Did your mom have the surgery? How is she? How’s your father?

    • Comments (1124)

      Hi SteveB we missed you. I hope your mom did well with her surgery. Wow I’ve been watching Couples Therapy and knew he was on. I never would’ve thought that was the reason he left the show. I hope he does well with his treatment. Continued best wishes for you and yours Steve keep us updated and thanks for the new thread.

      Lilly I’m sad that you won’t be on Damammas blog with us. I understand it’s just sad. I’ll really miss you. I’m hoping this blog doesn’t go down for awhile.

        Hi Sandra! Glad to hear from you. I’ll be here in Steve’s blog until he stops it for the year. Damamma’s is in facebook and I really don’t want to sign up for it. It would have been nice if juaelz’s blog would have worked, I like blogs better.

      • Comments (1124)

        Lilly actually Damamma set up a real good page on Facebook. I like it but I wish there were people on it with us. I miss y’all. She has it set up where we can comment on Survivor and Amazing Race there might be Utopia seems like or we can just chat so it’s nice. I’m glad she did it. I understand not wanting to join Facebook. I’ve said before mine really doesn’t get used that much matter of fact I’ve used it more today than I ever have. I’m still trying to adjust to it. But I’ll keep getting on here until Steve gives us the boot. Lol

    The reason I started watching Big Brother was because of Evel Dick. I became addicted and haven’t missed an episode since his first season. I loved him because he wasn’t an ass kisser. He just put himself out there the way that he is and I loved that! The best to you Dick! I know you will live a long life!

  4. Comments (1124)

    I always liked Evel Dick. Even tho he was very abrasive I loved to watch him. He was funny. I know he poured tea on Jen but she was so annoying and then she ate that veggie burger and got a penalty nom. It was funny.

    That was a very well kept secret. It definitely would have been impossible to stay in the game after finding out you have a health problem you didn’t even know about before going in.

    I would assume his decision whether or not to leave wasn’t his own.

    I am shocked. I really like him. In this day and age I am sure with treatment he will live a long and healthy life. Right? People HIV do don’t they?

    His daughter stayed in the house after he left. Wonder if he told her and if so how could she stay? Wouldn’t you forget any anger you had for your father and go out with him for support. I hope he didn’t tell her. I never cared for her but now I think she is a cold hearted with.

    • Comments (1124)

      I doubt from watching that season that his daughter knew why he was leaving. She was worried at the time that it was a member of the family that was sick. BTW Dick on Couples Therapy and Dick on BB totally different. He’s a kinder gentler Dick on Couples Therapy

        Really? That’s good. What is the Couples Therapy show? I have never heard of it. What is it about?

      • Comments (1124)

        It has different celebrity couples going through therapy for all different reasons. The last batchelor Juan Pablo and his girlfriend are on it she’s quite the witch with a B if you get what I mean. Jenna Jamison ( porn star) and her boyfriend ( she’s just quite special we would say in the south). Deena ( Jersey shore) and her boyfriend a rap star named Treach and his wife or girlfriend and Dick and his ex- girlfriend whose relationship was blown to smithereens by his being diagnosed with HIV. Quite interesting. I’ve watched it since it first came on a few years back. I think you’d like it. It’s in VH1 on Wednesdays if you want to watch.

        I also watch couples therapy and you are totally right. Dick is not the same person as he was on BB. Maybe there are several reasons, one is his longtime girlfriend (or ex), HIV,. I wish him all the luck in the world. He still looks rough, but he loves his GF.

      • Comments (1124)

        Yeah you can tell he has/ had feelings for her? I think after watching this lady episode that it may be more had feelings. I think he cares for her but I’m not sure if he has romantic feelings for her anymore. I think he’s trying to let out the information of his having HIV and trying to deal with that. I think he naturally knows logically it’s not a death sentence anymore but I think he feels that maybe that he won’t be able to find a partner and is grieving that loss. He does look rough. To me it looks like maybe a car accident or something to his left forhead and cheek. Some kind of damage there. Does anyone know?

        Thanks Rita. I had no idea what happened I was just guessing from the way his face is scarred up. Wow he really should’ve gone to the hospital.

      • Comments (1124)

        Rita since you watch Couples Therapy too we can trade insite with each other if you want. Or if anyone else wants to watch and talk about it I’m game. I watch a ton of reality shows.

      Yeah he’s really different on Couples Therapy. I wish him all the luck. It was really sad yesterday to watch him have to tell this secret. His girlfriend didn’t want him to do it because of the way it would make her look. She said yesterday she would leave the show if he told. I know she’s on at least next week because of previews. Good to hear from you DanDaMan.

    things are much much different than they were in the 80s when the diagnosis of having HIV was a death sentence pretty much. medicine has progressed so farand nowadays if someone has HIV they can live for many many years, some even undetectable. this is a good thing accept that some people are becoming careless again as they were in the early days before much was known about HIV and AIDS.

  13. Comments (722)

    Hello everyone. Long time no see!

    I did not watch Evil Dick’s season. I did see him leave on the couples season and I figured maybe he drank too much.

    I’m sorry to hear he isn’t well. I watched a little of the Couples Therapy. I read that he and the lay aren’t even a couple and they had to pay her highly to appear. The producers didn’t want another Farrah situation.

    I hope he gets the therapy he needs I’m not sure how good of a doctor Dr. Jenn is…

    Hope things are well SteveBeans. Hope your parents are doing okay. I’m sure you have more time to spend with them now that the season is over…

      Willie Jones Jr long time no hear. How are you doing? Damamma set up a Facebook page to talk about Survivor or Amazing Race and many other shows. You can also leave posts for each other at the top. It is Sidebar Damamma on FB. Check it out if you get a chance. It will be fun to talk about other shows with these people.

        Subbar damamma? I will have to check it out thank you for inviting me!

      • Comments (372)

        Hey everyone …I started the FB page because I really thought Steves blog would end when September ended. It was acting really wonky. So I threw it together pretty fast. I used subbar for Survivor, Utopia Big Brother and Amazing Race, as my first name… and just added my nic here damamma for the last name
        ….If you do not want to use your real name on facebook , maybe just use subbar as your first name and your nic here as your last name. Just an idea … anyways everyone is welcome. It started out with everything public, but now it is set to friends only …my daughter told me I should not leave a FB page public even if you are not using your real name … I am kinda of a FB rookie too , but I am learning.
        She also warned me be careful you might get sucked in and spend all day on it …LOL .. I it kinda true … the games are addicting.

When this page goes away at least we will have somewhere nice to go where we can talk about one of the shows or whatever and it will be people we know. I’m thrilled you made us a page.

        I’ve only got on my Facebook a hand full of times Willie and I’ve had it for years. Something my daughter wanted me to have. I’ve never understood the younger generations fascination with putting their every move on their Facebook ( alright younguns don’t get upset ). However I do enjoy getting on Damamas site. Give it a try.

    I checked in on Facebook Damamma and Sarah. Just about tonight’s Amazing Race episode and per my ignorance of Facebook it’s on the Survivor heading. Lol. I got this, I promise sooner or later I’ll figure out how to get to the right sections. It’ll just probably be later.

  18. Comments (644)

    Watched Utopia’s episode tonight. It really doesn’t reflect what’s going on. Most of the show was about who was getting voted out. They even showed Aaron comforting Kristen. It made him look good. Nothing about the real Aaron. And like I said before in another comment, the show is going to be just one time per week. The announcer said to tune in next Friday. I guess they’ll show Aaron as Superman, Mike as Batman, and Kristen as Wonder Woman.
    Oh, and Rob said that his girlfriend will visit him tomorrow. Hopefully she’ll be able to tell him to stick with the good people.

    • Comments (644)

      Since Mike and Aaron found out that Cal (one of the two people that might be voted in)likes Nikki, they want Katie to stay. I think Cal is a better asset to Utopia than Katie. But Aaron and Mike can’t stand Nikki so I guess Cal has to go. Last night I read on the updates that Aaron was telling someone (can’t remember who) that they would talk about rattling Nikki’s cage late in the night because “Now people are watching the feeds.” Can you believe that? That guy is so shady and really a mean person. And anyway, people saw him saying it, and late at night there might be some people watching him. Where does he think he is? Doesn’t he know he’s in a reality show and that people will find out the class of human being he is?
      If the show makes it a little longer, they should change the name to “Disgustopia” If the show keeps going like it is , I really hope it gets cancelled.

        Lilly, I can’t stand Mike or Aaron as I believe I have mentioned before. I think they need to keep Cal the farmer. Kind of more practical to keep a farmer that an animal rescuer. Da they aren’t very smart. I was wondering why don’t they {Mike and Aaron} like Niki? What happened with all of that? Do you know if so please share. Thank you Lilly.

      • Comments (1124)

        I’m catching up on Utopia right now. It’s weird I’m just watching the shows and I don’t see hardly anything y’all talk about. Now it lets me know what BB would look like if I only watched the show instead of watching BBAD and reading Steve’s blog. Always wondered what that looked like. Now I know. I don’t ever see Aaron or Mike being jerks but I know after y’all watch the feeds and stuff. Thanks for keeping me updated.

      • Comments (3)

        Sarah, I also think they should keep Cal, he brings a lot of experience and Katie brings only jewelry making experience and they don’t need more of that in Utopia.
        I’m doing a copy/paste of something I wrote on the Jim Morrison thread that will answer your question about Aaron (I don’t know why Mike doesn’t like Nikki, it might be that Aaron has poisoned him against her, but anyway Mike is not a nice person):

        Also Aaron lies about people. The other day he told Amanda that Nikki had four pieces of French Toast before yoga in the morning, when Nikki had only one piece after yoga. Amanda told Nikki what Aaron had said. And Amanda was the one that had saved Nikki one piece of French toast, so she knew Aaron was lying. I read somewhere that he has lied about other things too.
        Also I don’t like that he wants to have control of the kitchen and sometimes people are hungry because he serves small portions (maybe this week they have more food, I’m not sure). He also says he doesn’t eat much like the others, but then I see him cooking and eating while he cooks, while putting the utensil he used back in the pan (disgusting). A few days ago I saw him serving people small amounts of food and then he served himself a huge plate and stayed in the kitchen (so people wouldn’t see his portion, I guess). I also saw him once serving Kristen and Taylor more food than the others.
        I don’t like that he is a bully, especially to Nikki. I saw Nikki asking him to see if he could better manage the food so they could make better orders and be able to eat more and he blew up on her saying he didn’t want to talk about that anymore, that he was serving enough food. (It seems that Nikki is the one that had enough “balls” to confront him about the situation and he didn’t want to talk about it anymore since it wasn’t the first time she asked). Then when Nikki and Amanda were talking Amanda said she saw Mike, Dede and about 2 more people saying they had lost weight and that their clothing felt loose. Then she confronted these people who were next to Aaron saying that that was what Nikki was always saying and by what they had said about losing the weight they were admitting that they were under fed, but that Nikki was the only one that brought it up to Aaron’s attention. Then Aaron told Amanda that it was true he wasn’t serving enough food. Then Amanda said well Aaron if you had admitted that to Nikki she wouldn’t be asking you all the time, just admit the truth. Maybe the things with the amount of food will resolve soon since they have more money now. But I don’t think Aaron’s attitude will ever change, he needs to be evicted! Hopefully next month America will vote for him.

    Did you notice when Aaron was comforting that girl he looked over her shoulder almost like he was looking at the camera. At the time I didn’t know if he was making it look for the cameras like he could care less for what she was saying or if it was more he was patronizing her or what. Something was going on in that head of his.

    Lilly, I went back and reread your comment regarding Aaron and Mike’s dislike of Niki. Well that is the most silly reason to hold a grudge. They all act like children on the playground. They all do, even Niki when she was all silly over the bee keeper I told my husband they are acting like a bunch of fourth graders. That was a bit much.

    • Comments (1124)

      What little I’ve seen they act like silly. I haven’t had any trouble with this blog since we were on the Jim Morrison thread. I did type my name wrong ( I know ) alittle while back and it said awaiting moderation. Are you on a phone or computer Lilly? My phone acts weird sometimes with this blog.

      • Comments (644)

        Hi Sandra! I use my laptop when I’m here. Maybe it was a mistake that the messages weren’t approved.

    • Comments (1124)

      That’s why I questioned the validity of that show at first. It was alittle weird. I mean 15 people met and less than half an hour later they’re all taking there clothes off at the water going around making out with everyone like kids did when I was in six grade( not the naked part) . Then you had Red and that other guy running around stealing money out of the safe and that crazy announcer dude. Now you see why I thought it was strange. Seriously who behaves like they do? Weird show. I don’t think it’ll last long.

      • Comments (644)

        Sandra, I also think like you. Who behaves like these people? Sometimes I just turn off the feeds because I can’t stand some of them. I have the free live feeds but now they limited them to 10 minutes per day, so I refresh the page and I’m able to watch 10 more minutes.
        I guess they might cancel the show because now it’s only one hour a week. But the show you see on TV is different from what you see on the feeds. The show doesn’t do justice to the feeds.

      • Profile photo of sarah
        Comments (248)

        I agree. That is why I gave the live feeds a look to see if those people in Utopia really acted like that. Like BB only airing what they want you to see. Then you watch BBAD or the feeds and find out that those people don’t really act that way. Well they really don’t act the way the it is edited for the show. For the most part. Some are worse and some are better. Like Josh getting drunk and acting very crude. He seams to be a really nice guy. He works hard and helps out and he does defend Bella when the rest are going to far. The actual show does not do justice to the real people who are their. They just try to get ratings up but I think they are killing the show.

      • Comments (644)

        Josh is probably the hardest worker in Utopia. I’m glad that they didn’t vote him out after that first night. His crew is the best, Ernesto and Rob, they work hard too. Aaron and Mike are the men that don’t do much. Aaron says he is a chef, but people are always hungry after they eat the food, he doesn’t know how to feed more than one person (himself), breakfast is always late, and his hobbies are lying, stealing, and hating. I have only seen Mike water the garden and talk bad about people. Those two are useless, but they seem to have a lot of power and influence over the others, so they’ll vote out people that are useful and vote in useless people like themselves.

        I have seen Mike help Aaron make an order for food. Ya he sat next to him and shook his head yes a few times. I guess that must have been too much for him because he then complained of being tired. I kid you not. He is a lazzy bumb.

      Hi Sarah! I think if people like Mike and Aaron are able to influence others, the crappy people will stay and the newcomers won’t be good either. Between Katie and Cal, I think Cal will be able to contribute more. They don’t want him to stay because he likes Nikki. But Katie also likes Nikki, let’s see what happens.
      I think Rob is getting married in Utopia next weekend. His girlfriend visited yesterday. I don’t know why he is getting married if then his wife can’t be with him. But I guess it makes for good TV ratings.

        Really that kind of makes me sad. That event should be personal not on national TV. Does that mean he and his new wife will be going behind the wood pile to do their thing too. Yuck. This is getting to be a little too much. Maybe it will be done with more class than that. I would hope.

      • Comments (644)

        I read that when Rob’s girlfriend was there they both said they weren’t going to have sex in Utopia, that was a good choice. But now that they are getting married I hope they don’t do it either, maybe they can give them a night in a hotel and he can come back the next day.

    Hey Kids, gang,
    Or can I not us the word gang any more?
    I know you all know by now my spelling is going to be poor, it is the iPad and my nature. I might not correct it all.
    So take it or leave it.
    Franko, how’s the smoking going? I am only asking because
    I, we care. I might as well ask myself , how’s the chips ( potato) going? Because I can’t seem to get them out of my hands.
    We all have our own comfort things that hinder our health. Yikes!

    I watched Utopia once, liked it , but can’t find it again on my 1983 tv. And my 1983 DVD does tape all my channels . Lol
    So , do I get a TEE VO. ????? Or VDR. Or something ppl are talking about that records shows??
    I miss everything except. Big brother.

    People don’t believe I am an educated woman when I can’t spell or tape a show , but I say too bad.
    My job is done with the heart! And I am able to pay my bills. Enough bragging.
    But seriously, I fell so dumb , about simple thing, but don’t care, because I love people. And don’t judge.
    God know I got a log in my eye! Lol
    Well, any advice for recording, taping, tee voing., would be helpful
    Oh, ps. I have to pay for this myself, my husband is on a stick , ( let me shout). STRICK budget!! God bless him, my little cutie pie.
    Well, enjoy you day, be happy! For you never know what the other person is going through!
    Be a blessing to others, your reward will come later, we are only passing through this life. Look for your Grace Growers today!
    🙂
    Take what you want and leave the rest!

    Love always,
    Mom

    Ps,
    Be good to yourself today! You count too!

        mom, I also don’t know how to record anything on TV. I used to have a VCR and knew more or less how to use it, but it broke down. I have never had a Tivo, or whatever else there is. Now the show is going to be only on Fridays at 8:00 p.m., only one hour a week. If you can’t watch it, the next day you can go to the show’s website and watch it there, that way you don’t need to record it.

Evidently the emojis don’t work on all things. Like it was showing up on my text to her but not here but the whole changing the pictures of Dick at the top I don’t understand.

    Aaron just asked Kristen who are her 5 favorite people in Utopia and she said:
    1)Aaron
    2)Taylor
    3)Mike
    4)Chris
    5)Dedeker

    He then asked her in what order would she get rid of them and she said:
    1)Dedeker
    2)Chris
    3)Mike
    4)Taylor
    5)Aaron

    My favorite 5 right now are:
    1)Ernesto
    2)Nikki
    3)Amanda
    4)Josh
    5)Can’t decide between Hex and Rob

    My least favorite 5 right now are:
    1)Aaron
    2)Mike
    3)Chris
    4)Bri
    5)Can’t decide between Taylor and Kristen

      Comments (248)

      Why do you not like Taylor?

      • Comments (644)

        Taylor is grumpy, and he likes the others I mentioned and is influenced by them. He also lets Aaron order him around in the kitchen, but if a woman did he would answer her back in a bad way.

      • Comments (1124)

        Yeah I don’t care much for him either. Now wait Taylor is the guy that came that Hex liked right? I’m still trying to get their names down. Whoever it was that came in that Hex liked at first is who I dont like. He was mean to Bella. Don’t get wrong I think Bella has a screw loose but I don’t think she does anything to warrant someone just being mean to her. He also said he would drop Hex in a second if another pretty woman came in. I don’t like that. I know they supposedly broke up but still don’t care for that in a person. Sounds like Kristen is being a suck up to the guys to me. Haven’t seen her enough to know if I like her or not.

      • Comments (644)

        Yes Sandra, Taylor is the one Hex likes. Pretty on the outside, but not on the inside.

    • Comments (1124)

      I like Ernesto and Amanda not sure about Nikki yet. Haven’t seen enough of her yet although I’m leaning towards thinking she’s okay. Josh, I just can’t get past the way he behaved the first night. I know he’s been nice since and he goes out of his way to be nice to Bella and that really says something for his character there. He realizes that being mean to Bella and telling her no is not the way to get her to behave while the rest of them don’t. He gives her respect and for the most part she listens to him. That’s smart on his part I think.

      • Profile photo of sarah
        Comments (248)

        I agree. The first night was bad for Josh. I am not defending him but he was drinking a hole lot of had booze that night. As were most of them but some people just can’t handle it. It affects them in a bad way. My husband is one of those people. He never drinks anything stronger than a beer and only once in a while. Hex drank as much as he did and ended up at the ER because she couldn’t stop throwing up. She didn’t even seem to be drunk. Thats scary in its self. He did blow it in a big way but he has done a lot to make it right. Just my opinion though.

      • Comments (1124)

        No I agree Sarah . I think my issue with him is personal as I am married to a recovering AA man myself. Also used to be a bartender, can’t stand drinkers or the smell of alcohol now. I do believe he’s done a lot to prove himself and sober seems like a really good guy. I just know that they always say people lose their inhibitions when drinking and that what they do drunk is what they really think. So I guess I’m just waiting for the other shoe to drop with him. Maybe it won’t happen. Like I said I think it’s more of a personal thing with me, that’s why I’m not totally against him.

      Sandra, to sign up for the free live feeds go to: http://www.utopiatv.com/home

      They have 4 cameras and before you could see cameras 1 and 2, 24 hours a day. Now they say you can only watch 10 minutes a day. What I do when the 10 minutes are up is I refresh the page and I watch 10 more minutes, and then I refresh again, and keep repeating. Sometimes when you refresh it will tell you that you can’t watch, or that there’s an error, but you should refresh again and it will let you watch again.

      • Comments (1124)

        I wonder why they only let you watch ten minutes? You would think they would want everyone to watch so more people would watch the show. Okay I’ll check that out this afternoon. Thanks Lilly.

      • Comments (644)

        At first they said we could have the free live feeds so they would have us hooked and then they could take it away so we have to pay the $5.00. But I’ll keep refreshing every 10 minutes for now.

  43. Comments (1124)

    I didn’t know Rob was getting married much less on the show. The show is probably picking up the tab and that’s why they are doing it there. Having spouses on the show would change the whole make up of the show. Then they would have to let everyone’s spouse on and then it would be everyone’s kids too. So I don’t think they should let his spouse come on. It was set up to be an individual experiment.

    Out of everyone in Utopia I could relate the most to Ernesto.

      Me too but only because he is the most adult acting person there. Most of the rest of them act like horny little high schoolers. That’s not to say there’s not a time and place but jeez they attact every new person that comes through that gate with a pulse. Lol

    • Comments (644)

      In Utopia voted amongst themselves to see who is the person that works the most and the least, these people are nuts:
      Mike came as one of the people that works the most, and Nikki as one who works the least. Bri, or Aaron weren’t mentioned on working too little. They even nominated Ernesto as one of the ones who works the least, and he helps Josh do the hard labor. I don’t get it.
      They should let the public vote on evictions, and maybe they could save the show. This is ridiculous, I’d hate to see some of these people in real life, what a train wreck!

      • Comments (1124)

        It’s not about who worked most or least for most of these people, it’s a popularity contest. What a shame like I said before they are definitely one of the biggest bunch of child like people. I don’t think I behaved that way at most of their ages. They need to grow up. It’s a game to them.

        Wait until winter then we shall see how much they regret being childish. When they are cold and hungry because they are not doing what they need to make it through the winter.

      I’m sorry you feel bad Sarah. I know how it is to have to take care of one like that and especially when you don’t feel well yourself. I’ve noticed you being gone but I wasn’t going to bother you. I figured you would tell us sooner or later. . 2 yrs ago I went to see my middle daughter at xmas. I was going to stay the whole month of December. Once we had been there awhile my oldest daughter came down with a virus that we all had but her being disabled threw her into a whole nothet category than us. I almost lost my child there, the EMTs said she had only a few minutes left when they got there. I was shocked. I shouldn’t been, I mean she’s disabled but she’s always been the healthiest of us all. I happened to be sleeping in the same room as her and heard her breathing change had I not she would’ve died. She was in ICU for 3 days then bumped down to the regular hospital for 4. I was extremely sick at the time also with the same crud.

      • Comments (1124)

        Sorry ran out of room. Anyway I stayed with her day and night until the nurses made me go home but I was right back the next morning. Sometimes God has a way of giving us a wake up call. I had got complacent with my daughters health because she never got sick with run of the mill stuff. Let me tell you that run of the mill stuff like to have took her out. The point is there’s nothing ever more important than your child’s health or your own. When it comes down to it we’re all they have and vice-versa. Take care of what’s really important. We’re not going anywhere. If things get tough you know where to find me. Love to you and your baby.

        Absolutely Mom. When my daughter was diagnosed at 9 months I was furious with my God. How dare he make my child this way. To say I was angry was an understatement. I raled against God everyday at the same time I was running away and working with her constantly because I was determined to fight and win. I didn’t and I came back home with my tail between my legs feeling sorry for myself. I met a woman who lived behind me in the apartments I was living in then. She had a son who had leukemia. He wasn’t supposed to make it to Xmas. Wow talk about getting hit in the head. I was ashamed of my selfishness. True I had a child that wasn’t perfect but she had one that was dying. Changed my whole life right then. I live with my God now. My daughter has given me so much personal growth and strength. I wouldn’t change a thing. BTW if anyone reads this blog and you sent me a poem about Gods special children going to parents that needed them, thank you so much. You have no idea the gift that you gave me. Kiss your children and spouse because it could a always be worse.

    If Steve would be willing to just leave this blog open so that all of us that want to could still come here and comment on all our reality shows that we’re watching I think we would all be grateful. If we all still abided by the rules and laws of common decency then he wouldn’t have to govern it and that way he would get his much needed break. And we would still get this great blog with all these great ppl. What do you guys think? Is it possible?

    BB Bopper,
    I was thinking the same thing. If I ever get to watch tv again, I will watch utopia if it is still on, and survivor.
    Do you think they will bring back the show “glass house” I did like that.?
    Anyway, as you can see, I do really have too many friends outside of this blog, I like the fact that we can come and go.
    My ” real life friend” seem to be very busy. Or their feeling get hurt too easily or they gossip.
    Oh , how I do not like the gossiping. So , I feel we have nothing to say.

      I just love you Mom. You make me laugh. I wish this blog could stay and I think for the most part people would behave. You know you always have to have ” that one ” but we could ignore that person until they went away. I don’t think Steve can leave this blog as a BB blog after a certain time. I may be wrong but I’ve read this on other BB blogs. I wish he would change it to a catch all blog. Between all of us we watch a lot of TV. I think it would be a very interesting blog. So what do ya’ll say? Maybe if we yell loud enough Steve will stay around in some capacity. For those of you who don’t know we have a facebook page we go to in case this blog goes down at Subarr Damamma. Interesting people, nice people. We talk about all shows, even Alittle about non reality shows. Mom have a great day and don’t go away. I love your posts.

      Mom, I watched the show Glass House also! I don’t think they’ll bring the show back. I liked Kevin (the one that won), and Andrea (the Mormon lady). Plus I liked Kevin’s friend, the DJ from Boston, but can’t remember his name. Those were my favorites.
      Since you talk about friends I have something to share. Every time my friend and I talk, she talks 90% of the time and I talk 10% of the time. She is a nice person but when she calls it’s like a monologue, she won’t leave a moment of silence so I can say stuff so I have to interrupt her. I get lucky if she’s smoking because then I’ll be able to say something when she is inhaling and exhaling the cigarette. But anyway I tell her not to smoke that it’s horrible for her health, but she will pay no attention to me. I remember years ago they had an exhibit called something like “Bodies” where they showed real dead bodies and their parts. I went with her and we saw a regular lung and a lung from someone who had smoked a lot and it was really disgusting. But I know smoking is an addiction and some people can’t kick the habit. Hopefully someday my friend and franko will be able to do it.

    Goodmorning everybody. Sarah I’m sending good thoughts to you and your son today to feel better. I woke up to the skies opening up this morning. Good storm came through with hail and everything. I love storms. I watch them roll by in my garage. My husband and I sit out here everyday, mostly in silence. Him reading his paper and me reading and blogging on my phone. It’s very peaceful here in the woods. I love to see all the animals here. It does get lonely with your neighbors so far away and your friends don’t want to come out this far from the city but it’s a trade off. It just gives me more time to watch TV. Last night I caught up on Dog and Beth the bounty hunters. Good finale. Plus Teen Mom and Teen Mom 2 had a special. I watch that because I was a teenage mom at 16. I hand it to those girls, I wouldn’t put my life on TV. Plus I watched Big Bang Therory. Love love that show. I like comedy. Everyone needs to laugh, it’s good for your health and keeps you from taking life so seriously. If you watch the show, Bazinga!!! If you don’t you have no idea what I’m talking about. Lol. Good day to everyone.

        I just read the article on People, who would have thought that man could do that? And there were children on that show. He seemed so nice. That’s why I think children should always be with their parents. No sleepovers. You don’t know what people do in their own houses. Many times appearances are deceiving.

    I read in the Utopia comments and updates that Aaron threw in the garbage a bottle of mayonnaise that had Josh’s name on it written very legibly. Someone said that that’s the mayonnaise Aaron used for yesterday’s meal without Josh’s approval and now he was getting rid of the evidence. As always Aaron sucks. He apologized to Josh and said he would get him a new bottle of mayonnaise. But Josh is not dumb and knows Aaron did it on purpose. Aaron even said he thought the mayonnaise was Red’s and that’s why he threw it away, when it clearly had Josh’s name on it. Then Aaron threatened Josh because Josh wouldn’t let go of the situation. Aaron thinks things are so easy after you wrong people. I wish Josh would get some of Aaron’s personal food and throw it in the garbage and then just say “Sorry, I’ll buy you the food, it was a mistake.” But the thing is they just reward the bad people in Utopia and the bad protect the bad. But the good are sometimes afraid to speak and if they do, they get bullied or they’re just simply ignored. Utopia represents what’s going on with the government in real life. That is sad and wrong.

      That’s exactly why they did this experiment in the first place and unfortunately the bad usually stick out more. It’s a good thing there aren’t people like me in there. I wouldn’t be able to keep my mouth shut. My momma always told me I was going to get myself killed because I just can’t let injustices go. I’d be all up in Aaron’s face and would get sent home but they would know I’d been there. Lol momma was right I don’t know how to shut up. He’s a slime ball. Even if it had been Reds if he used it he obviously didn’t think it was bad so why throw it away? Jerk.

        Aaron seems to think he’s a great chef and maybe he is good, but what they need is a cook who can make simple meals out of simple foods and know how to buy inexpensive ingredients to make them with. If he doesn’t they will run out of food and money to buy it with. Then what are they going to do? Also if cooking is his job, function, assignment whatever…why isn’t he making 3 meals a day for everyone? Everyone else does their job for the good of everyone. They don’t just do half of the garden, or half of the animals, or half of the plumbing etc. I think he’s a lazy a**. Plus one more complaint I need to get off my chest about him then I’ll stop I promise. The selfish and extravagant way he spent that large sum of money on unecessary foods (trying to show off his skills) the group should vote to approve all purchases including food. Whew that was a lot! But does anybody else agree?

        That is a fantastic idea. Being that it is the groups money then they should have to agree on every penny that is spent.

        Me too Sarah! Those two should get evicted yesterday! I hope America’s choice is Aaron, and that the Utopians will realize that he has to go, that thousands of people can’t be wrong. We simply know things they don’t.
        People are so afraid of Aaron, it makes me mad. And now let’s see what they do in the trial against Aaron (the thing about the mayonnaise with Josh). I hope he gets some type of punishment. Or better yet I hope he hits Josh just a little (Not hurt him), and they vote to get him out. I’m tired of the evil prevailing over the good in that show.

    hello to everybody! I thought I would check in with all of you guys! I’ve had a good reason for not being here for almost a week. I have been in the hospital again, I am still in the hospital. I’ve been in intensive care. it turns out that I have been bleeding internally for a while but I reached the point where I hardly had any blood left in my blood vessels and it was causing my heart to work harder trying to pump what blood I had and it was driving my blood pressure up. I was brought to the hospital early early Saturday morning and I have had 6 units of blood, 5 units of plasma and 6 units of plasma. the doctors found one cause but are still doing research in having more tests run. I am in a regular room now at least but if I had not gotten to the hospital Saturday the doctors said I would have probably not lived till Monday. So that’s what’s been going on with me.****

        Mom,
        Thanks!! I appreciate the good thoughts and prayers I need them very much. I’m not going it be up much longer I hope tonight because I’m very tired tomorrow morning I’m going to swallow a camera and digest it. the procedure is usually done as an outpatient procedure but because of all my health issues I’ve had recently and the fact that I have a pacemaker/ defibrillator which the camera could possibly affect I’m being kept in the hospital plus I just got out of intensive care last night. Hopefully after I saw the camera I will be allowed to eat something. I’ve been on nothing but a clear liquid diet Saturday morning. at the moment, even a saltine cracker would be a huge treat. Lol

      • Comments (1124)

        Yes laughter is always the best remedy for what ails you. Find the funny in every situation or try too anyway. Even in my darkest moments I’ve always tried to find that moment, that brief second were you have to just laugh. What’s the alternative? Crying? Not an option for me. It really does help to just try to stay positive. Sleep good everyone I’ve got another early morning tomorrow at the doctor. Fun fun but we’ll make it. Franko I’ll be praying for you tonight.

      • Comments (644)

        Sandra sometimes I feel that crying makes me feel better, it releases all my frustrations and sadness. Having so many health problems and no one knowing what I have is frustrating. Of course I try to watch funny things to make myself feel better. Utopia is not helping!
        Good night! 🙂

      • Comments (1124)

        I agree Lilly that sometimes a good cry is needed. I hate to do it because I always get a horrible headache afterwards. I was also taught as a child to have a stiff upper lip and all and the way I grew up crying was considered a weakness. If you showed weakness you would be ate alive. I’ve changed a lot in my years but sometimes it’s hard to let go of what you grew up with.

        That was real cute!!! Thanks for sharing. I took the morning off to say bye to my son. He is off to Nevada.
        Crying does no good for me. I sometimes just walk it off. But I can’t lie, tears just flow. But when I am mad, one time I went out and cut all my bushes down! Now that was fun!
        But seriously, eating healthy and keeping you body clean , for me, is the best way to stabilize my mental health. Oh , and changing the negative tapes in my head. That helps too.

        Franko, I feel for you. Not fun being so sick. Hope everyone else does well, today.

        mom, feeling sick makes my mental health go out of whack! It makes me sad. I’m not overweight but know I should exercise and the doctors tell me to exercise but I don’t like it. I’ve tried but it doesn’t last long. I started walking around the block and it lasted for about 3 months. I joined a gym, and out of a year I maybe went 50 days. I try to eat healthy but some times I give in to Burger King! I’m going through some bad times now because I’m not feeling physically well and I’m going to different doctors. Well, thanks to everyone that reads this. I’m just feeling down and writing makes me feel better.

      • Comments (1124)

        I m sorry your feeling low Lilly. Sometimes we get stuck in a rut and after awhile we’re more comfortable in that rut than anything else and God forbid if someone tries to pull us out. I’ve been where you are many times and for long periods of time, I’m talking years. I finally decided I wanted to live more than I wanted to lay around and die so I started changing small things. I started making myself get up and do things around my house, I started rolling my hair and putting on make- up a coupla times a week. I started painting my fingernails. These small things made me feel better about myself. When my blood pressure started bothering me I did change my diet. I eat mostly vegetables making sure I get plenty of protein thru beans and pecans, started to read the backs of of foods. Didn’t go crazy, don’t eat stuff I don’t like but eating healthier. Once a week I eat what I’m craving that week when I’m thru eating it I throw the rest away and resume my diet at my next meal. In between meals I eat fruit or some kind of nuts. The goal wasn’t to lose weight, it was to get healthier. Although weight lose is one of the perks. Tailor your diet to fit you. Once I stsrted getting up and moving around more and started eating healthier I started to feel better mentally. Just change one thing at a time. No matter how small, after your comfortable with that bring in something else new. Walking with other people makes walking easier. If you don’t have a person take your dog. Plus you have a bunch of people on here who care about you, tell us. I know I’ll be glad to help anytime.

        Thank you Sandra for your advice and kind words, they gave me hope and made me feel better. I sure have to make some changes, but I need more willpower. Life is passing me by while I’m thinking about my health and how bad I feel sometimes. I definitely need a plan.

        I know it hurt to watch your son drive away. I used to sob when my daughter and grandbabies left. It’s been 5yrs now and the pain is not as bad. She comes to see me about twice a year and I see her thanksgiving or xmas. This year it’s xmas. I used to love xmas. I was a Xmas freak. I had so many decorations it wasn’t funny. Now I just put up a little two foot tree and a couple of my singing and dancing snowmen and such. It’s not the same as when my kids were young. The fact that my mom passed away 5yrs ago on December 30th doesn’t help. I usually get a little depressed at the holidays. This year I refuse.

    Goodmorning everyone. Early morning actually. I’m trying to wake up but it’s hard when it’s still dark outside and no one else is awake. I got 3 1/2 hours of sleep. This blood pressure medicine is screwing my sleeping habits all up. I’d like to say another day another dollar but they don’t pay me to go to the doctor. Wish they did. I’d be rich, rich,rich. Lol talk to ya’ll later. Franko hope your test goes well.

    • Comments (644)

      Hi Sandra. The doctor changed my mom’s blood pressure medicines (she takes 3 now). It wasn’t working too well until they changed one of them back to Amlodipine. Now she is doing well again. First she stopped taking it because she got a note from the pharmacy saying it interacted with Crestor (for high cholesterol) and it made her itchy. The doctor now tried with a smaller dose of Amlodipine and she is not itchy anymore and doing much better, no high blood pressure episodes now. Just a suggestion for you, maybe if after a couple of weeks your medicine isn’t working try another one and you might feel better. You definitely shouldn’t sleep 3 1/2 hours, it’s too little.

      Sandra ftsm I remember my dad having the same trouble some years back. He started taking it at a different time of the day. I want to say at 2PM and that helped. I remember him telling one of his friends who was having the same problem to try it and it worked for her.

        Thanks Sarah and Lilly. I guess it’ll just take sometime for me to get used to this medicine. If I only had to take it once a day I would change the time but I have to take it twice a day and with meals so that limits when I can take it but it’ll work out. I don’t ever sleep more than a couple of hours at a time anyway. If I slept eight hours I’d be so stiff I wouldn’t be able to get out of bed. Lol

    Hey all I am doing better not great but better. Thanks for all the good thoughts and prayers. I am sure that helped. Just got to get my son to where I feel. You know what, life moves so fast not always in a positive direction. The other day my friend saw her husband off to work and while he was at work he had a massive heart attack and died. That was the person she wanted to grow old with. How tragic. I am so sad for her.

I know I am sick sometimes but I have to find a way of doing things the days when I’m feeling better. I have to start changing small things like you said, that’s the key.

    HELLO!!
    I just thought I would try to check in and say hello. I had gone to sleep but woke up with a major muscle cramp in my leg and foot. I had to get up and walk up and down the halls of the hospital here to work it out.
    I am much much better today. it has been a rough day, though. I’ve had I really difficult time dealing with the nurse assigned to me today. it was absolutely impossible to communicate with her, she would not listen to anything I tried to tell her. I really have nothing else to say on the subject of her.
    I had a procedure done today and it was the last procedure on having done. I swallowed a camera. I’ve heard of the procedure before but I’ve never known anybody who’s had it done. the very large pill with the camera in it worked its way through my system taking pictures as it went. They were transmitted to a little pack that I was wearing all day long. the doctor will the reviewing every picture once they are transferred to a disc and he can see if there are any more places that could cause bleeding like I was having when I came in.
    I will be going home tomorrow though! every doctor that I have seen while I have been here is amazed that I have responded to treatment and have recovered as much as I have in such a short time. I’m not a 100% but considering I only had 20% of the blood that should have been in my system actually in my blood vessels, all the transfusions, the meds, the fluids, and other things that they’ve done have worked very well. My blood pressure has been unbelievably under control and I’ve hardly had any medicine for that while I’ve been here. So, internal bleeding apparently was a major factor in the high blood pressure I was having. I have been completely taken off of two of the medicines that I take for blood pressure and they have cut the dosage of two others drastically. Of course they want to see me in two weeks to make sure that I’m okay with the dosage and I am to keep a close check on it at home.
    okay, I have rambled on about myself enough. Just giving you an update for those who have been so kind and have shown so much compassion toward me recently! I’ve gotten more from some of you then have from some of my family.
    I will keep in touch as I can. I’m excited to go home tomorrow but I also know that it is going to completely wipe me out getting out of here.

      Hey Frankio glad to hear your doing better. You had a lot of prayers and good wishes coming from all the people on here. It’s nice to have people who care huh? Anytime a nurse is like that you have the right to request that they remove her/ him from your room. I’ve done it. Their is a charge nurse for every floor you can ask to speak to them and report that person. It’s hard enough being that sick without having someone like that around you. I’m very tolerant of nurses, I know they have a hard job but you shouldn’t ever be treated badly. Makes me mad just thinking about it sorry. My goodness how many medicines did you take for high blood pressure? I never knew anyone who took more than one. Here I am struggling with one and your on a bunch. How do you stay upright son? Lol mine makes me sleepy but it makes my muscles jump. I hate it. I’m just so glad you got to the hospital in time. I wondered where you were because I called for you several times and you didn’t answer. That’s not like you. Well feel better my friend and keep us updated. Kick that nurse in the leg before you go home!! Lol oops excuse me. He he

        Hahahehe
        the nurse assistant just came in and asked if I wanted same nurse from yesterday? I said definitely …….NOT! she just smiled and walked away shaking her head. I feel sorry for her because she is having to work with that woman and cant really do a whole lot because she has to work with her all the time but she just kind of looked at me and said I understand with a smirk on her face. I did finally talked to the nurse manager yesterday and I’m not sure if I really did any good by doing that because I think she must be really good friends with the nurse I had. I am about to go explore the hallway just cuz I want to walk. Also want to see if I run into nurse from yesterday. Lol I must feel better……I’m tempting fate. All I need is to have her make one snide remark and I will be going looking for hospital administrator. Hahahehe
        And yes, I was taking 4 bp meds. I’m going home on 2 and they are reduced dosages.

    Well Goodmorning everyone. Here I sit again before sunrise ( head in hand. Sigh) I don’t remember anymore what it was like to wake up after that stupid rooster next door. I swear if I had a gun he’d be pushing up daisy’s. It’s sad when you wake up twenty minutes before the rooster. He’s crowing the horses are neighing and the birds are singing. Well I watched Survivor last night, waved good-bye to that bigot. What a jerk. I also watched 19 and counting, two more weeks before the wedding. Also watched Gordon Ramsey almost blow a blood vein in his head. Lol. Tried about 4 times to finish Couples Therapy but I kept falling asleep. I wanted to watch the fall out from Evel Dick announcing he has HIV. That Jenna Jamison is a real ( well ya’ll know what rhymes with witch) and it’s not itch. Well that was my night besides all the little boring things I do at home. Anyone else see any other reality shows last night??

  61. Comments (1124)

    Wow just watched the end of Couples Therapy from last night. Evel Dick let the cat out of the bag and told everyone in his group and all of America that he has HIV. I applaud him wanting to do this. It cannot be easy to do and he did it well. I’ve said before that this Evel Dick is not the same one we saw on season 8 of BB. Even down to his mannerisms and his speech pattern. I feel for him so much. I would like him to know that people carry on completely normal lives now after being diagnosed. He seems to think he’ll never be in a relationship again but he needs to know that there are people out there that aren’t afraid of this and would love him anyway. Love real love can surpass all. So look up Dick it’s going to be okay.

        They dressed like tribal people, had paint on their bodies and faces and were making drum sounds and dancing. They ordered 8 pizzas and were so happy to be able to eat something that delicious! Enough pizza for people not to go hungry. Then they went to the partially built shack that Josh is building and they had a show for Rob. Taylor, Mike, and Josh dressed like women and danced for Rob. Josh danced for both Rob and Bella. Then Chris and Rob played the guitar and they danced. They also drank liquor. Then they went back in and Rob played the guitar and they made up songs and danced some more. Then I turned it off. Hopefully no one got too drunk and they had no fights.

I still have some major hurdles but it is amazing considering how much blood I had lost internally that I even lived through it. anyway, I am home and I am worn out. Just wanted to say hello to everybody and let you know I am doing better. Thanks for the good thoughts and prayers and please continue I’m definitely not out of the woods completely yet.

    Hey, just checking in ,
    I got to go….
    I did not get a chance to read all all the posts,
    Hope all is doing well, even your son, Sarah. Lilly, you too, high spirit day!!!
    Sandra, wishing today I lived in the forest, and meeting your daughter.
    Now Franko…so I hear you had a visit from Nurse Ratchet?? Well, she was here with my husband
    Too. When he asked for morphine, she said, after her break! And never came back!!
    Glad you are home!

    Yippy,yahoo it’s the weekend!!!

    Be good to yourself today,
    Love,
    Mom

    Mom good to hear from you. I don’t know what’s going on with your husband I must have missed it but I will put him in my prayers. I wish you could come out to the forest too. It is definetly quiet. The only thing you’ll hear is the rooster and the horses. Occasionally squirrels and birds. I was raised partly in the country so I like it here. I just wish we had side walks so my daughter and I could go walking. It’s not very easy to get a wheelchair thru the woods. Lol although we have tried before with quite comical results. You always sound rushed Mom, you’d have to learn to slow way down here. I may be wrong but don’t you live around New York? I visited there once. After three days I had sensory over load. All I wanted to do was go home. My husband loved it. All the hustle and bustle. I guess I’m alittle more country than I thought. Come on down anytime . We’ll eat watermelon outside and spit the seeds out to see who can spit the seeds the farthest. Lol alittle something we used to do here when I was younger. Slow down and breathe. It’s good for you and have a very blessed day. You and your husband.

      Sandra ftsm, I just thought of something. My father was confine to a wheelchair a few years before he passed away. But we had a hoist to help move him around. It is kind of bulky but it might be a huge help to you. There is a strap that you attach to the person you need to lift and a handle that you pump it is not hard to use. My disabled mom could do it. When the people brought it out they made sure we knew how to use it before they left. Very nice people. It might be better on you and your daughter. Just a thought. Have a good day. Enjoy your granddaughter. I am sure you will. That forest sounds perfect. I live in CA. This city has become so bad with gang violence and other nastys. I would give my eye teeth to live in a place like you have. You are truly blessed.

    I get my grandbaby today!!! So I probably won’t be on much until Sunday night. I’m so excited to see her. I’m like a kid in a candy shop right now I’m so excited. I haven’t seen her for over a month because she started school this year so I can’t keep her as much as I would like. ( mom could you put me a frowny face right here. Lol ). They change so quick at this age. Hope she still loves her memaw. School changes them. That’s usually when you want to send them back and start over with new ones. Kidding, kinda. I hope this blog is still here when she leaves. I’ll be looking in every once in awhile just probably won’t be able to respond as much. But if it’s gone before I come back, I will miss you all. You became my friends. Never talked to people on- line before. I will most definitely be back for BB next year if for nothing else to be able to talk to you fine folks. Ya’ll made my summer bearable and made me laugh. You have no idea how much that meant to me. Laughter is a rare thing that makes life fun. If ya’ll are gone, see you all next year. I’ll miss you.

        Ah supper break. I have a lift for my daughter. It’s an old one and it needs to be more heavy duty but I use it. I have too. I quit being able to dead lift over 5 yrs ago. The thing with her is she can’t help you at all. So it’s hard to pull her up in her chair and handle the crank at the same time. Now that I finally got her insurance to cover her new chair next I’m aiming for an electric lift. Heaven.

    Hey,
    Here is your 🙁
    Sandra
    You wanted. Of course she will still love her memaw.
    After being in school, I am sure she will love you even more! Hope you don’t have common core where you are?
    Enjoy that grand baby and spoil her up!!!

    Yes, I am always rushing. . Even my boss tells me to slow down. I grew up in Brooklyn and worked in Manhattan. Always rushing around Times Square. I get up early , first one at school , last one to leave. I don’t think I am hyper, but I like to keep moving. Always have too many project going on. Anyway….. We near Albany , ny. Not really city, not really country
    My son called, he is in Oklahoma now…getting near Nevada.
    Watermelon. Is my favorite!!! I eat it every morning in the summer! Would really like to eat watermelon with a friend; and spit seeds and laugh, and have the juice all over, then toss the green skin in the forest for the field mice to eat!
    Now that is fun!

    StevenB….hope all is well, and thanks keeping all this going.

    Mom your son is getting right along. I lived in Oklahoma for about 41/2 yrs absolutely barren there. You know I used to keep moving all the time but my body has other intentions. Lol the body ain’t willing. I’m having a blast with the little one. Nothing like big sticky hugs with an I love you tacked onto the end of it. Goodnight ya’ll got to go to sleep before she’s waking me up.

    I just decided to check this site & was excited to see all of you guys that are here! Not quite sure what made me check-in, but I’m glad I did. I’ve missed keeping up with each of you. Franko, glad you’re home from the hosp. Please stay out of the hosp! Glad you’re doing better. I’m not in a very good place right now so reading all your posts has brought a smile to my face! Is this where you all are communicating? I’d love to continue keeping in touch.

      kneeless, its good to hear from you. I’m better but not great. I’m just very weak. I guess losing most of the blood in your body can do that to a person. I’m having some major problems with my left arm where and IV blew out. My entire arm hurts. I cannot straighten it out at all without excruciating pain.
      I hope things get better with you and that you’re doing ok very soon.

      Hi kneeeless! damamma opened a facebook account, I think it’s called SUBBAR (for Survivor, Big Brother and Amazing Race). Some are communicating there. I’m not because I don’t have a facebook account and don’t want to open one. juaelz tried opening a blog but it wouldn’t work right so we couldn’t do that.
      I hope you feel better soon.

        Lilly… is Rob getting married today?
        I think I have some freebie viewing left…I would like to watch if his wedding is today.
        and yes Survivor Utopia BB Amazing Race …watching BB Australia too , very different for the US version, but I love it…
        We chat about TV and everyday life.

        Hi damamma. The wedding is today. I just got home and I’m watching Rob and Jess getting pictures taken. I guess they already got married, but I’ll go to view topia at youtube.com later today to see if they posted the wedding ceremony.
        I don’t watch Survivor or Amazing Race. I watched the first 10 episodes of BB Australia, I need to keep watching.

      • Comments (644)

        I saw the actual wedding on youtube. It was about 10 minutes.
        Tonight was a great day at Utopia. They all came together really nice. They talked and danced. That’s what Utopia should be about, people getting along.

      • Comments (1124)

        Boy once they decided to get married it didn’t take them long to do the actual ceremony did it? How is the new weird guy? He was a little off. Asking Nikki ( it was Nimki wasn’t it? ) to have a one year relationship. Does he not realize you’d have to be a lot cuter to pull that off? Lol that was funny. I thought maybe he would be a good catch for Bella since their both a little strange but then he went and made her mad. I think he lost his one chance with any of them right then. I really wish they’d get rid of the weird announcer guy.

      • Comments (644)

        Hi Sandra. I don’t like Cal anymore. He told Nikki that he wants Josh to get into a big fight with Aaron to see if they’ll kick Aaron out of the show. And I also read he told her he’d like to get Josh, Ernesto and Amanda out. I think Cal wants to get the people that like Nikki out. Ernesto and Josh get along with Nikki and they like her. Amanda is Nikki’s best friend in there. Cal also told Nikki to dress with more clothes and offered to make her a dress with one of the animal skins he has. Yesterday at Rob’s wedding Cal got drunk and then poor Ernesto got stuck taking care of him. Nikki told Amanda she is in doubt about Cal getting drunk, that maybe he is acting, that it’s all part of his strategy (because Cal told her he has a strategy). Amanda said Cal has an agenda, not a strategy. I think Nikki hasn’t told Amanda that Cal wants her out. Some commenters at jokers said Cal wants to get Ernesto to take care of him so he can control him, or make Ernesto close to him so he won’t pursue Nikki. Nikki asked Bella how much liquor Cal had and she said about 2 glasses of wine, but that she knows a 300 pound guy that gets drunk with just a little bit of wine, that some people are like that, and some are allergic to wine. (In my case I can get drunk with just a little bit of wine so I don’t like to drink, so what Bella said is true).
        Sandra, I don’t know if you know, but Cal offered Nikki the one year deal to be with him, first because he has a “Hall Pass” from his girlfriend for the year he’s going to be there, and then because Bella likes him and if he is with Nikki then she will stop her “flirtiness” I guess towards him. And that part is true, Bella was very jealous of Nikki because Cal likes her. Nikki says she has an intellectual connection with Cal and they want most of the same things, but she doesn’t feel attracted to him or has a heart connection with him. With Ernesto she says she has a heart connection with him, but not an intellectual connection, they don’t think alike in many things, I don’t know if she finds him attractive, plus I think Ernesto has a girlfriend. Nikki says Cal is a great when they are together and alone. But when he is in a group he changes and he doesn’t fit in and acts different. I really think like you, he would have been better for Bella.

    Jeez I just woke up for a minute and I’m so dizzy. I’ve been having dizzy spells for awhile. Doctor didn’t seem too worried but this is really bothersome to feel this way. My ears always ring too when I get like this. Anybody have any ideas why someone would always get dizzy? I’m open for suggestions since my doctor doesn’t seem to care. It doesn’t feel like vertigo. Well not quite. More like I got really drunk and fell asleep and woke up too soon in the middle of the night dizzy if any of you know what that feels like. No I don’t drink and haven’t since I was a teenager and I think this is one of the reasons I quit. Because you feel like crap. Any suggestions? I’ll try anything at this point.

    • Comments (644)

      Sandra, check the side effects of your medicines first to see if dizziness could be one of them (maybe your new blood pressure medication). I know with some of them it says to stand up slowly because you might get dizzy. If it’s one of the side effects you could try another medicine for about a two weeks, if after that the dizziness continues, it wasn’t the medicine and it is something else. Try going to an ear, nose, throat, specialist because it might have something to do with the ear, there they will test you. You can also go to a neurologist. If the doctors you go to can’t help you try other doctors, always get second and third opinions if you need to. Write all your symptoms down so you can be very specific and that way you won’t forget anything. Write when they happen, only at night, some nights only, after you take your medicine, how long the dizziness lasts, does your ear ring every time it happens, etc. Make an appointment soon and don’t give up, sometimes some doctors don’t know their stuff, but there are others that are brilliant, so keep trying. Hope this helped.

    Well I’m back. Couldn’t sleep. I don’t understand what’s going on with me. Some of the dizziness has faded so I don’t feel as off kilter anyway. Just wanted to say Goodmorning to everyone. My granddaughter will be awake soon I imagine and it’ll be like off to the races. She is a ball of energy and I adore her. Too bad she has to go home today, she makes it less lonely for me and keeps me on my toes. We painted fingernails, somehow mine stayed on and all hers came off in the bath. Now I’m stuck with two different alternating colors on my nails. Lol thank god it’s baby pink and white. It could’ve been worse. I straightened her hair just to see how long it really is. She has gorgeous curls. It stayed straight for all of ten minutes and went back to curls. Lol oh well. The funny part is I curled mine and it went back to straight in about the same amount of time. She’s such a doll. Its nice to have someone love you that much, I hate that she’ll grow out of this stage. But until then I’m going to get all the hugs and kisses I can.

      Hi mom. It’s nice you are going to that park. Nature always makes me one feel better. Glad your son got to New Mexico.

    I was watching the videos of View Topia on youtube (“I came in like a wrecking ball” and “She’s harshing my mellow, man”) And you see Dedecker coming outside because Josh, Chris, and Taylor were making noise while talking and diving on the rental chairs for the wedding. Josh seemed to be the one that was the most drunk ( they shouldn’t have lifted his 3 month ban on drinking). Even though I don’t like people getting drunk at all, I find it very hypocritical that Dede was upset and she came to tell them that she was embarrassed for them and many other things, when she has 2 boyfriends and one girlfriend, plus one boyfriend in Utopia. Also she cooks the books with Mike. Really Dedecker, (to parapharase something that is in the Bible), you should take out the tree in your eye before taking the leaf out of your friend’s eye.

    • Comments (1124)

      Very good reference there Lily. I don’t understand what Cal has to gain from all of this. He’s a creepy little guy. I for one don’t find him attractive in the least. They should have kept the girl she was annoying but not calculating. Thanks for the pep talk on my dizziness. I needed that. Just so confused why I feel okay sometimes and horrible the next. It makes me nauseous to be that dizzy. I’ve ran all the scenarios in my head but 2 and 2 never make 4. Hopefully I’ll figure it out soon it’s truly annoying. Thanks again.

    Gosh tonight was a boring night on TV. Just not a lot on. I’m used to Amazing Race being on Sunday’s. I’m glad it’s on Fridays because Friday’s have been so boring for so long but jeez put something on Sunday’s to replace it. I’m bored. I guess with my grandbaby going home today I’m alittle more bored. You know you have em for a coupla days and they play you to death then they leave and your just kinda twiddling your thumbs. It’s raining again. Getting alittle tired of the rain, supposed to rain all day tomorrow too. Anybody else ready for winter? I so am. Just get cold. No more yo yoing up and down in temps. It’s midnight and it’s warmer now than it was all day. I know I’m on a rant. Okay I’m done now. Gonna go back inside and find something to watch on that TV if it kills me.

      I love you Sanda, you just tell it like it is. The weather, the t.v., the twiddling of the thumbs! I remember when Donny on BB16 saying how he Loves his t.v. , me too. But some how I just can’t get to it lately. I did watch “the good wife ” when I got home from the forest. Oh how pretty was that. But I gained 2.5 pounds eating ribs! We went to big daddy’s diner.
      I only watch Utopia on Friday nights when the show airs or when I get a chance on the VCR tape. The dvr is $23.00 extra a month , so we can’t get it . 🙁
      I will be observed this week at work, for my APPR score…..and need to hand in progress monitoring excel spread sheets so my mind will be flying…. Plus, more intakes for ieps. At lease 4 a month. Plus, parent conferences, oh and teach, but it’s my job and love it! So I am not complaining, just letting you know I will be busy if I can’t get back to this blog. And they want us to read a text book , 3 chapters…..for a meeting.
      MY. Son CALLED HE is in VAGES !!!! He made it. Thanks for you prayers!!!!!
      He said his breathing is better already! And he is happy!
      Ok, now to clean his closet so I can put my summer things in is room , and take my winter clothes out. Ugh!! 🙂

      Again, I am thankful for blogging here. In the past I was told to keep a journal . I never did. ( I don’t like writing) I never found a purpose for writing. I don’t like to be negative, not even to myself.
      I guess in an odd way, this is my journal – to the world – I don’t care. ( take it or leave it)
      So thanks of letting me post.
      So, somehow I am accountable to a degree, ????? With some support??? Oh, now I am confused.
      Have a nice day,
      Love,
      Mom

        I love you too Mom because your just like me. You tell it like it is too!! You are going to be a very busy little bee Huh? I used to thrive on organized chaos. I was so type A. Had to give it up, it was killing me. It took me years to see that I just loved it when there was a mess of chaos around me. If something upset me I got up and got busy. That was a defining moment for me. Sometimes I wonder if I wouldn’t have been better off just keeping myself busy. But then I would never see that heart attacking coming like I do now!! Damn therapists. Look what they did. Lol I hope your not like me in this respect Mom. It’s painful sometimes. I would get going so fast sometimes I felt like a spinning top, managing everything people or fate threw at me. Unfortunately tops have a way of spinning out. That’s when the real trouble starts. So make sure you know why your that busy. Make sure your not keeping yourself busy. I found that even if I quit juggling all those balls and they fell down nothing horrendous happened like I thought they would. Just a thought for all of you type A people out there. Lol Mom I’ll miss you till you come back. I’m glad your son made it. I know you are. Take a breath every once in awhile from all that work. Writing or journaling is good for you. Sometimes when you just don’t want to do it is when you really need to be journaling. Try it. Never hurt.

    Good morning to everyone. I haven’t forgotten any of you. I have just been real busy. Life can do that some times. But all has slowed down. I think I might have some help teaching my son. That is a big help. I am not saying I don’t enjoy and love him but we are together 24 hours aday 7 days a week, too much togetherness is no good for anyone. So I am happy to get some help. I wish he could just go to a regular school but he can’t not here anyway. I would love to have a regular mother son relationship with my son. Sorry for complaining, I will stop. Mom glad your son made it to NV. It must have a long trip for him. Sandra how was your visit with your granddaughter? I hope you had a blast. I am sure you did. Glad to see kneeless has found us. Franko, it is wonderful that you are home and regaining your strength. Take it slow and easy. Don’t want to end up back in the hospital right away. Lilly thank you for the Utopia updates. Cal was a big mistake. Well be back latter. Have a great day.

    • Comments (1124)

      Hi Sarah. I left you a message on facebook too. But I wanted to say I understand what it’s like to feel like your stuck in the house 24/7. The doctors have told me before to get some respite care for my daughter but it’s also hard to let go and let someone else be responsible. My daughter would totally be unprotected if I wasn’t here. That scares me to death, but I also just have no idea what to ask them to do. I’ve been doing it all for 36 hrs and will till one of us dies. That’s another thing, I worry that I’ll die first and there won’t be anyone to care for her like we do and she’ll end up in a nursing home. It’s not easy what your doing I know. So if you have figured out a way to get out from under for a little while, run with it and say Amen. Because I’ve haven’t figured that out yet so your ahead of me. Coming on here an talking about our lives is only human. So if you need to rant go ahead. I’m not going to fault you for it. You can always text me on Facebook if you want to talk to someone who definitely understands. Different diagnosis but the feelings are the same. I get it. So rant on sister!!!

    Hello Sandra, Sarah and mom!
    If you really want to know what happens in Utopia go to this link, it’s very entertaining:

    http://www.youtube.com/channel/UC_ZN5bvssbKpCvJbmL1l2MA

    This person posts videos everyday of what’s happening in Utopia. Last night I was watching the breakup of Mike and Dedecker on the feeds and she posted it on youtube. I missed the wedding ceremony and I watched in on youtube.
    Yesterday in the Utopia experience Cal was nowhere to be found, I think he went to take a nap. I liked Cal better than Katie because of his knowledge, and thought he could really help the Utopians. But that’s the only reason I liked him. But now I like him less because of the way he is behaving with Nikki and with the group. I didn’t like Katie because she cried, complained, and talked too much, and they were going to have to babysit her. She was also too loud. They should get better people to replace the ones who leave.
    Go to the link I gave you, by watching the videos you’ll get the best updates and will be entertained.

      Thanks Lilly. I’ll try to get to it later. Bad weather coming through took out one of the large limbs on my big hundreds year old tree out front. I’m grateful it fell where it did. Nothing was hurt. Another twenty- five feet to the left and I might have been a goner since I’m always outside in my garage. If anyone is in the path of these storms be careful and take it seriously. Also say a prayer that when these storms move through where my daughter lives in the middle of the night that her and my grandbabies make it through as easy as we did. Some people weren’t so lucky.

      • Comments (644)

        Sandra I’ll say a prayer so all those storms will stop. I live in Florida so luckily I never get tornados and don’t get many huge storms like that. I went through Hurricane Andrew but the damage to my house wasn’t that bad. Then I think in 2005 we had a few hurricanes but it was mainly tree damage where I live. I’m just saying how my family did. I know that many people lost their houses and lives and it was terrible. But we have done ok with the hurricanes. The good thing about them is that you know they are coming and you can prepare for them. That’s a positive way to look at it. But it’s scary. I remember Andrew, and the sound it made was horrible. It sounded like a freight train. We all went into the bathroom with a mattress for protection. Luckily, the worst damage was to the roof and we had no holes, but we had to redo it because many of the shingles flew away. Something that I found kind of funny was that we had a shed in the backyard with just a lawn mower and 3 cans of paint. The hurricane’s wind ripped the shed away from its foundation and we never found it, but the lawn mower and the cans of paint were still there.

        Amazing how that works huh Lilly? Yeah I’ve heard that train noise before. It’s a scary situation. My daughter and I hid in our hallway with a mattress and all the pillows we had. I couldn’t help but run and look out the old picture window in my diningroom. I watched it peel my aluminum roof on our shed like a sardine can. Lol it’s still there just a little messed up. We didn’t use it anyway. I’ve got to learn how to stay away from the windows and my garage door during storms. It’s fascinating to watch something that powerful. I can’t help it. I’m drawn to it. Well my momma always told me I’d get myself killed one day, but I think she meant one of the memphis drivers would kill me. Hate to drive in town. It’s more dangerous than riding out a tornado. Sad but true.

    I just want to say hello. I miss my friends on here.
    Sarah, I haven’t gotten any email from you like lately.
    for those who are wondering, I’m doing better. You still very very weak from the loss of blood and trying to recuperate but it is kind of nice to be home, even though it’s not an ideal situation where I live. I have done a lot of sleeping since I got home but I guess that’s normal. I just want to feel good enough to get out and do things. Hoping to go to dinner with friends on Thursday.
    Sandra, I hope you’re safe during all this weather that we’re having right now. We sure have a lot of warnings out in this area, don’t we? apparently, it’s not going to get any better as the night goes on. I need to get out and go pick up a couple of prescriptions but not really looking forward to it.
    Mom, hope you have a great week!
    let me hear from you folks. it always makes my day much much better when I get from you.

      I know Franko. If you look at above post to Lilly you can read about tree damage we took. I’m so glad your home and feeling alittle better. I know the urge is great to get out but take the time you need to get better. If you rush it you might end back up in the hospital. So take it slow. I hope your in a safe place for these storms too. I figured out the forest is not a good place to be in this mess. Oh well we’re here and alive that’s all that matters. You take care and let us know how your doing. I think about you all the time. Your so close yet so far away. Lol okay people when the mice start making a bee line for my garage I know it’s a bad storm. I’m going to do the smart thing for once today and go inside for awhile. Be safe Franko and all my other blog friends.

    Oh my word, How dear Monica 21 give anyone a hard time. Big brother is over and Steave has been kind enough to allow us to stay here and talk. If you don’t like it then move on until next season. Sandra ftsm post away.

      Oh have no fear Sarah they’re are a lot bigger and badder things than her who tried and failed to imitate me. People like that hide behind the blogs. Those people are the ones who would never say anything like that to someone’s face. She bothers me not. Lol

    My phone is going nuts in all these storms. Luckily for my little area around here anyway they have passed on. It was so creepy out this morning. That silence and warm humidity you get before bad storms. Ohh glad their gone. Now if my phone will just get it together and I can talk my husband into not climbing our huge tree in the front yard to cut that large limb out of the way everything will be great. I don’t want him too because that means I’ll probably be his right hand man like I usually am in bad ideas like that. Lol just in case your interested which your probably not my phone is showing an individual picture of Evel Dick for each post. Earlier it was Brittany and then Pao Pao. Strange phone. Oh well I will talk to you good folks later I’m sure.

    Ohh good crisp morning to you. That rain made it down right cool last night. I got my little space heater on out here this morning. Franko I was supposed to go to the pharmacy too yesterday and I didnt. So I got to go get it today. Mine isn’t the regular pharmacy. It’s downtown at regional one. Pain in the rear to get that one. Oh well field trip day. Yay! Not.

      You are so funny Sandra. Good morning everyone. Hope you have a wonderful day. Or at least a good one. You know what, it is the year 2014 and I still “Love Lucy”. Old a bit corny at times but I Love Lucy is a classic and funny.

      • Comments (1124)

        Laughter at ones self is healthy Sarah. I try to do it as much as possible just to keep from crying sometimes and Goodmorning to you too. I used to sneek out of bed at night to watch I Love Lucy at night. Love that show. The candy factory and the vegamitavitamin one are my all time favorites.

    Lilly what happened with Aaron on Utopia? I know something happened and I heard Rob, Hex and I think Taylor talking about pooling their money together for food. Bella only wanting to eat organic and her liver being swollen. What in the world is going on out there? I listened to a little bit of conversations but only enough to confuse me. I know that Aaron hasn’t been very honest about food consumption and stuff. What little I heard sounded like there may have been a meeting or something? I don’t know. These people say come read our blog and it’s not a blog but snippets of conversations recorded. I don’t want recordings people. I want a good blog on it something you read like Steves blog here. That was just plain confusing.

      Sorry had to rant for a second but seriously that was supposed to be a blog?

      Sandra, go to the links I have given for Jokers (one is where people make comments, the other is where they do updates). Then the last link I gave is for daily videos on youtube.com by view topia. If you go to those places you will find everything you need to know.

      Aaron was given a punishment(tilling the soil for about an hour) for threatening Josh’s life when the whole mayonnaise incident happened. Chris was the one who thought out the punishment. Then yesterday there was Aaron tilling alongside maybe two others, I think one of them was Chris. Mike is in a weird mood because he is not together with Dede anymore, so I guess he decided to go crazy and said Aaron’s punishment looked racist and then Aaron took advantage of Mike’s craziness and played the victim role and was saying how that punishment was racist. A few days before that, Aaron was saying how he was the first person punished and he was black and how people watching wouldn’t like that because it looked racist too. Some of them were saying that the punishment wasn’t racist, but of course they didn’t tell Aaron because they are all afraid of him. Some people in the discussion forums and some in Utopia said that if Josh was given that punishment they wouldn’t have cared about it. The funny thing is that white people were tilling with him, but it’s because he is black that it’s racist. Chris was crying last night because of how the whole thing happened, that he didn’t want people to think he’s a racist, he thought that was a just punishment (someone also said that Chris’s best friend is black). Then in the discussion forums they were saying (they don’t like Aaron) that Aaron can’t do any physical work because it would be racist, but he cooks, and that is a stereotype too but I guess he doesn’t mind because it’s not hard labor. Every man in Utopia has done hard labor, Mike’s the one that has done less but at least I’ve seen him do some. They all help doing different things but Aaron just cooks when he feels like it. Food is never on time. And he doesn’t know how to cook for vegetarians and carnivores at the same time. Plus he gives tiny portions, doesn’t wash produce, doesn’t wash his hands, let’s flies walk all over the food, throws out vegetables he doesn’t use and are going bad in the trash, etc. Two days ago I saw Nikki getting some green vegetables out of the trash (Aaron had thrown them out) and cooking them because she was hungry, she offered some to Bella who was also hungry.
      Some people want to pool their money for food because they are tired of all the problems with the food portions and Aaron’s control of the kitchen. But Rob (who I’m liking less these days)is being a hypocrite, he knows he’d like to do his own thing with the food and tells Aaron about Bella and Nikki wanting to pull their resources together and how that is crazy, but he doesn’t say anything about himself. Just firing Aaron up against those two, when he wants to do the same thing. Although I don’t know if Rob would succeed having his own food because I don’t see him cooking and preparing it, maybe he’ll tell Hex to do it for him!
      Bella went to the hospital because she wasn’t feeling well and they said something about her liver (I don’t know what) and also she said that she had hemorrhoids! They made some comments in the hospital how she had to eat better. I didn’t watch the meeting. But the Utopians said that they were forced by production to have a meeting (and of course after they said it the feeds were muted).
      John Kroll, one of the executive producers of the show has been saying that there will be a big surprise, people on the discussion forums have been waiting for the surprise since yesterday, but then he said it was going to be today in the afternoon or maybe tonight. Hopefully it’s something good. Aaron should self evict, that would be the greatest surprise. Or maybe they could let us vote out someone tonight, wishful thinking on my part.

        Wow to threaten someone’s life over mayo. That punishment wasn’t racist. My grandparents were sharecroppers and I’m not black. My gosh this is exactly why our country is so messed up. I think everyone should’ve voted on the punishment tho maybe stripping him of his job. They rotate the other jobs right? They should rotate the cooks job. Honestly I’ve never liked Rob I thought he was a jerk from day one with all of his little temper tantrums. A surprise huh? Maybe the preacher is coming back. I guess whatever it is will be on Friday’s show. Thanks Lilly for letting me know what was going on.

    Aaron is like Mango. Mango thinks people are homophobes when they don’t like something he says or does. Aaron (have to find a name for him) says people are racist when they don’t like him, etc. And these people are afraid of him and he mistreats them and punishes them by not feeding them well. I guess in Big Brother the guys let Mango touch them so they wouldn’t be viewed as homophobes, and in Utopia, people let Aaron mistreat them so they won’t be labeled as racists. What a horrible country this is becoming. Being politically correct is worthless and stupid, and it makes no sense. It makes sense only if you want to go down the drain.

      I’ll agree with that Lilly. Some people use those buzz words to get themselves out of a mess. Only makes it harder for the people who would never think about those things.

    • Comments (644)

      The producer said this about the surprise:

      “Don’t worry, Utopia fans… your patience will be rewarded… get ready to crap your pants.”
      Then he said tonight:
      “Sorry, Utopians, due to reasons beyond my control surprise is ON HOLD. Will update when I have one. Speculate away. But i have to go dark.”

      The surprise was supposed to be yesterday but then they cancelled and said it was going to be today, but now we don’t know when. By him saying we have to get ready to crap our pants it must be something big. Oh I can’t wait for the joyous occasion……

        Let me know too. I no longer have the live feeds. Half of the time the sound wouldn’t work or the sound would be a conversation with people that the camera’s weren’t on. I got tired of the mess.

      • Comments (644)

        Sarah, I still have the free live feeds which are supposed to be 10 minutes per day, but I refresh the page when it gets to the 10 minutes so I can watch 10 minutes more, and I keep repeating the process. The feeds are messy like you say. They focus on someone and then you hear somebody else’s conversation. Or you can hear someone talking but can only see their feet. The worst is that they mute many things and you can’t follow a conversation.

    Good morning Sandra. The producer didn’t say the surprise was going to be today. I guess he doesn’t want to let us down again. When it happens I’ll let you know what it is.
