One of the sweetest voices came out of Karen Carpenter, especially as she sang “rainy days and Monday’s always get me down.” The Mooch is feeling pretty down on this Monday and even Karen’s voice cannot make him feel better.

You may have heard that the President’s “gotta have” strategic communication director, Anthony Scaramucci, has left the building after only ten days of tumult and profanity. General Kelly, the new Chief of Staff, must have rightfully had a condition of his acceptance to get rid of this grossly negligent hiring mistake.

Not that I am a fan of Sean Spicer, but in a Shakespearean plot twist, Spicer was asked to prepare the communication for Scaramucci’s departure. So, the plot has come full circle in such a short time.

The irony of all this is the cause of all of this chaos and incompetence remains. Everyone is saying the White House…

Fire Sale

from The Real Reality Show Blog, an excellent question.

Here’s a little teaser for you. When is a song not a song? Have a little think about the answer while I whizz us off in my music time machine to the year 1972. Not only that, but I’m going to give many of you a handy tip that I know many of you will be thanking me for.

51 weeks 51 songs from the past poster

We previously visited the year 1972 back in week nine of this feature. Who could forget the week I introduced you all to a song that featured a pigeon and a 60-year-old lady who is still one of the oldest female artists to have had a number one hit single in the UK? Click here to relive that memory. But, what about the answer to that question I asked at the beginning of this post? Take a look at this video, and I’ll then give you the answer.

I’ve featured strange pop music videos in…

It is said that the person can achieve everything on his own hard work. These saying fit exactly on the Joita Mandal. On saturday, when a white car with a red plate written “Judge on Duty” reached Islampur Court premises, it was not just a chance for the transgenders to celebrate, but it was a happy opportunity for the whole country.

As a transgender, the journey of the Joita Mandal to the National Lok Adalat was not so easy. From begging for living to work of social workers and then to be selected for the National Lok Adalat Bench, all these Joita saw in his life.

The founder of Trans Welfare Equity, Abhina said,”This is the first time when some one in this community has got this opportunity.

Joita was appointed to the bench on behalf of the Sub-Divisional Legal Service Committee of Islampur for the Lok Adalat on 08…
