Congratulations to the family of the late Louis A. McCall Sr. (Co-founder & Drummer of the Funk/R&B Band Con Funk Shun). The City of Alameda (CA) Planning Board approved Louis A. McCall Sr. as a new street name for Alameda Landing. His name will now go to the Historic Advisory Board for adoption onto the approved list of street names and become final (with their vote).

The family of Louis A. McCall Sr. thanks the City of Alameda (CA) Planning Board for considering his name for a street in Alameda Landing. We also thank Dan Wood of Karelia Software. It was his Sandvox web design software and his unfailing patience in helping me get ExxtraFoxxMusic.com up in 2007. This made it possible for our website to be referenced by Wikipedia with Louis’ birthplace of Alameda, California. Dan continues to be in our hearts for submitting Louis’ name for consideration. Thank you for remembering a great musician, businessman, father, and husband. Kind regards, Linda Lou, Lindsay, Louis II & Dominique.

Louis A. McCall Sr. (born December 28, 1951 in Alameda, California – died June 25, 1997 in Stone Mountain, Georgia) was an American singer, songwriter, drummer, and event planner. He was best known as the co-founder and drummer of the 1970s and 1980s funk/R&B band Con Funk Shun. Louis was murdered in a home invasion robbery.

Walter Vs. Kenya!

walter-jackson-rhoa

Kenya Moore’s ex boyfriend Walter Jackson was allegedly caught in the bed with another man by his then wife, Charmaine Ward? This  comment listed below was left on http://www.rhymeswithsnitch.com/2014…l#comment-form

When is Walter going to admit that not a lot of younger women are really checking for him because they think he’s gay and corny? When is Walter going to admit that he’s had 2 divorces, one being that his wife left him because she caught him in bed with a man?!!!

There are people in ATL that dropped some tea about Walter recently and dude is an old loser!!! He is simply trying to ride Kenya’s coattails because she has moved on and doesn’t need his fugly arse anymore. I’ll take Kenya’s life anyday over living off the system with random men laying up with me! In that order!

Angela Stanton: The Truth!

angela

In an official statement Stanton wrote:

“In 2012, I released my personal memoir, Lies of a Real Housewife: Tell the Truth and Shame the Devil. In the book, I detailed the struggles I faced as a young woman drawn to the temptations of crime and the false glamour it affords. I alone am responsible for the mistakes I made as a young woman. Yet, I have felt a certain sense of anger toward the people who used me during that period of my life. Certain individuals found me at a time when I was vulnerable and searching for friendship, and used those traits to lure me into doing their bidding.

I read with sadness the news that Phaedra Parks’ husband, Apollo Nida, was arrested for alleged schemes that are remarkably similar to those that lured me years ago. I was troubled to learn that the alleged crimes involved the use of a vulnerable woman to carry out the schemes. The story is all too familiar to me. I sincerely hope that Ms. Parks has not been part of his alleged crimes. I hope that she, like I, learned from her mistakes.

Although tragic, the news of Apollo’s arrest has been vindicating for me. Since I published my book, Phaedra Parks has used her wealth and influence in an attempt to silence me. She filed lawsuits against my publisher, and threatened them with years of expensive litigation if they did not cease publication of my book. As a result, I lost nearly all the royalties I was owed. Ms. Parks used her influence in the media to discredit my story and smear my name, casting me as a delusional liar on the pages of popular blogs. After going to prison and losing everything, my story was all I had left, and she took that from me.

Richard Millsap:Gone But Not Forgotten….

1376499976921When Richard Millsap opened Crossfit Mosaic gym in a Winter Garden warehouse district last spring, he wanted it to be a place where anyone could feel welcome and no one would ever be turned away — even if they couldn’t pay.

Although officials have not yet released the name of the man gunned down while leading a class of eight people Monday evening, the tight-knit group that worked out in “the box” say it was 33-year-old Millsap.

According to Winter Garden Police Department spokesman Lt. Scott Allen, a man wearing sunglasses and a hat walked into the gym at about 6:45 p.m. Monday and opened fire.

Renaut van der Riet, lead pastor of Mosaic Church, which Millsap attended, spent most of the day at the gym and with Millsap’s wife, Karen, and two young children, ages 2 and 7.

The family has been through “waves of every emotion you can imagine,” the pastor said.

“There is a family left in the wake of devastation because of this insanity,” van der Riet added. “It’s so unfortunate to watch it unfold. There is a wife at home with two kids that has to rethink her entire life because of a single moment.”

On Tuesday afternoon, friends and others left flowers and notes in a makeshift memorial outside the gym.

Millsap’s friend Michael Pritzkau was not working out when the shooting happened, but he joined more than two dozen others at the gym late Monday to mourn and express condolences as police with flashlights collected statements and canvassed the area for clues.

“It was devastating,” said Pritzkau, of Winter Garden. “Rich was a big inspiration. He got people going on the right path. A lot of people listened to him and looked up to him.”

Police say they cannot release the victim’s name until the have a positive identification from the Orange-Osceola Medical Examiner’s Office. That had not happened as of late Tuesday.

Allen said there seems to be no doubt that the victim was the intended target. No one else was injured in the shooting. One class participant tried to chase the gunman, but the suspect got away, Allen said.

Authorities weren’t able to provide the suspected shooter’s name or say if any of the witnesses recognized the man. He escaped in a getaway car driven by a second suspect, who police are searching for as well.

Police have not released a description of the vehicle.

Crossfit Mosaic gym is in the 900 block of Carter Road near State Road 429 and West Colonial Drive. It has been open since March 16, according to the gym’s website.

From Florida to California, messages of anguish poured in on the Facebook page for the Millsap’s gym as news of the deadly shooting spread across the national crossfit community.

Janelle Monáe: Woman Of Honor!

530707_10151166834758089_1237044444_n

 

When I started my music career, I was a maid. I used to clean houses. My mother was a proud janitor. My stepfather, who raised me like his very own, worked at the post office and my father was a trashman. They all wore uniforms and that’s why I stand here today, in my black and white, and I wear my uniform to honor them.

This is a reminder that I have work to do. I have people to uplift. I have people to inspire. And today, I wear my uniform proudly as a Cover Girl. I want to be clear, young girls, I didn’t have to change who I was to become a Cover Girl. I didn’t have to become perfect because I’ve learned throughout my journey that perfection is the enemy of greatness.

Embrace what makes you unique, even if it makes others uncomfortable.” – Janelle Monáe

Peach Cobbler: Mary Mac’s Tea Room

 

1348058546-cimg24162 pounds fresh fruit or 1 (16-ounce) can sliced peaches in heavy syrup, undrained

  • 1 cup plus 3/4 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) salted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup ice water (with crushed ice)
  • 2 tablespoons (1/4 stick) unsalted butter, melted

 

Procedures

  1. 1

    Preheat the oven to 350°F. Peel and slice the fresh fruit. (If using canned fruit, taste before adding the sugar.) Place the fruit in a bowl and add 1 cup of the sugar, lemon juice, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, and cornstarch. Toss together gently. Pour the sweetened fruit into a 13 by 9-inch baking dish and dot with the butter pieces.

  2. 2

    In the work bowl of a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, on medium speed, beat the shortening, salt, and the remaining 3/4 teaspoon sugar. Gradually add 1/2 cup of the flour to the shortening mixture and mix together lightly. When the mixture becomes stiff, add 1 tablespoon of the ice water. Repeat the process until all the flour and water is used. The mixture should be soft, but not wet. Cover and let chill for 30 to 40 minutes. Roll out on a floured surface to a 13 by 9 1/2-inch rectangle.

  3. 3

    Cover the fruit with the pastry, crimping the edges. Make 3 or 4 slits in the pastry with a sharp knife for steam to escape. Brush the crust with the 2 tablespoons of melted butter. If using fresh fruit, cook for 1 hour. If using canned fruit, cook for 25 to 30 minutes at 400˚F. The cobbler is done when the pastry is golden. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
