Central Colombia woman grows potato in vagina in ill-advised contraception attempt Oct 1, 2014 posted by Craig Corbet

Shocked medical staff in a clinic in the central Colombian town of Honda have discovered a potato growing inside a patient’s vagina, local media reported on Wednesday.

The bizarre phenomenon was discovered when doctors attended a 22-year-old woman complaining of abdominal pains this week.

The embarrassed young woman explained that she had been advised by her mother to insert a potato into her vagina as a means of avoiding unwanted pregnancy.

“My mom told me that if I didn’t want to get pregnant, I should put a potato up there, and I believed her.” the unnamed patient was quoted as saying by local news website HSB Noticias.

After leaving the potato in place for around 2 weeks she began to experience intense pain in her lower abdomen. The potato had germinated, and grown roots inside the lady’s private parts.

When the nurse went to examine the patient, she originally thought she had been the target of a practical joke, as she found roots emerging from the young woman´s vagina.

The offending root vegetable was removed without need for surgery, and there should be no lasting physical effects on the young woman.

Carolina Rojas, the attending nurse, pointed the finger of blame at the woman´s mother for giving her daughter such bad advice in terms of contraception methods available.


All of a sudden, I’m feeling like a really really great mother! At least no vegetable garden has grown inside any of my children!!!

How about if we grade on a curve…What are you feeling really really great about today!

p.s. Thank you Ah Yea for the post idea!

“Through A Rapist’s Eyes”

18 Jan
Dear Readers,
A friend sent this to me with the instructions to Forward/Share on Facebook. And as I was preparing to do just that, I realized I would be leaving out some very important dear friends and their friends their friends daughters.
So without further delay or fuss please read….
It seems that a lot of attackers use some tactic to get away with violence. Not many people know how to take care of themselves when faced with such a situation. Everyone should read this especially each and every girl in this world.
Through a rapist’s eyes! A group of rapists and date rapists in prison were interviewed on what they look for in a potential victim and here are some interesting facts: 
1] The first thing men look for in a potential victim is hairstyle. They are most likely to go after a woman with a ponytail, bun! , braid or other hairstyle that can easily be grabbed. They are also likely to go after a woman with long hair. Women with short hair are not common targets.
2] The second thing men look for is clothing. They will look for women whose clothing is easy to remove quickly. Many of them carry scissors around to cut clothing.
3] They also look for women using their cell phone, searching through their purse or doing other activities while walking because they are off guard and can be easily overpowered.
4] The number one place women are abducted from / attacked at is grocery store parking lots.
5] Number two is office parking lots/garages.
6] Number three is public restrooms.
7] The thing about these men is that they are looking to grab a woman and quickly move her to a second location where they don’t have to worry about getting caught.
8] If you put up any kind of a fight at all, they get discouraged because it only takes a minute or two for them to realize that going after you isn’t worth it because it will be time-consuming.
9] These men said they would not pick on women who have umbrellas, or other similar objects that can be used from a distance, in their hands.
10] Keys are not a deterrent because you have to get really close to the attacker to use them as a weapon. So, the idea is to convince these guys you’re not worth it.
1] If someone is following behind you on a street or in a garage or with you in an elevator or stairwell, look them in the face and ask them a question, like what time is it, or make general small talk: can’t believe it is so cold out here, we’re in for a bad winter. Now that you’ve seen their faces and could identify them in a line- up, you lose appeal as a target.
2] If someone is coming toward you, hold out your hands in front of you and yell Stop or Stay back! Most of the rapists this man talked to said they’d leave a woman alone if she yelled or showed that she would not be afraid to fight back. Again, they are looking for an EASY target.
3] If you carry pepper spray (this instructor was a huge advocate of it and carries it with him wherever he goes,) yelling I HAVE PEPPER SPRAY and holding it out will be a deterrent.
4] If someone grabs you, you can’t beat them with strength but you can do it by outsmarting them. If you are grabbed around the waist from behind, pinch the attacker either under the arm between the elbow and
armpit or in the upper inner thigh – HARD. One woman in a class this guy taught told him she used the underarm pinch on a guy who was trying to date rape her and was so upset she broke through the skin and tore out muscle strands the guy needed stitches. Try pinching yourself in those places as hard as you can stand it; it really hurts.
5] After the initial hit, always go for the groin. I know from a particularly unfortunate experience that if you slap a guy’s parts it is extremely painful. You might think that you’ll anger the guy and make him want to hurt you more, but the thing these rapists told our instructor is that they want a woman who will not cause him a lot of
trouble. Start causing trouble, and he’s out of there.
6] When the guy puts his hands up to you, grab his first two fingers and bend them back as far as possible with as much pressure pushing down on them as possible. The instructor did it to me without using much pressure, and I ended up on my knees and both knuckles cracked
7] Of course the things we always hear still apply. Always be aware of your surroundings, take someone with you if you can and if you see any odd behavior, don’t dismiss it, and go with your instincts. You may feel little silly at the time, but you’d feel much worse if the guy really was trouble.
I know you are smart enough to know these pointers but there will be some, where you will go “hmm I must remember that” After reading, forward it to someone you care about, never hurts to be careful in
this crazy world we live in.
1. Tip from Tae Kwon Do: The elbow is the strongest point on your body. If you are close enough to use it, do it.
2. Learned this from a tourist guide to New Orleans: if a robber asks for your wallet and/or purse, DO NOT HAND IT TO HIM. Toss it away from you…. chances are that he is more interested in your wallet and/or purse than you and he will go for the wallet/purse. RUN LIKE MAD IN THE OTHER DIRECTION!
3. If you are ever thrown into the trunk of a car: Kick out the back tail lights and stick your arm out the hole and start waving like crazy. The driver won’t see you but everybody else will. This has saved lives.
4. Women have a tendency to get into their cars after shopping, eating, working, etc., and just sit
(doing their checkbook, or making a list, etc. DON’T DO THIS! The predator will be watching you, and this is the perfect opportunity for him to get in on the passenger side, put a gun to your head, and tell you where to go. AS SOON AS YOU CLOSE the DOORS, LEAVE.
5. A few notes about getting into your car in a parking lot, or parking garage: 
a. Be aware: look around your car as someone may be hiding at the passenger side, peek into your car, inside the passenger side floor, and in the back seat. (DO THIS TOO BEFORE RIDING A TAXI CAB).
b. If you! U are parked next to a big van, enter your car from the passenger door. Most serial killers attack their victims by pulling them into their vans while the women are attempting to get into their cars.
c. Look at the car parked on the driver’s side of your vehicle, and the passenger side. If a male is sitting alone in the seat nearest your car, you may want to walk back into the mall, or work, and get a guard /policeman to walk you back out. IT IS ALWAYS BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY. (And better paranoid than dead.)
6. ALWAYS take the elevator instead of the stairs. (Stairwells are horrible places to be alone and the perfect crime spot).
7. If the predator has a gun and you are not under his control, ALWAYS RUN! The predator will only hit you (a running target) 4 in 100 times; and even then, it most likely WILL NOT be a vital organ. RUN!
8. As women, we are always trying to be sympathetic: STOP IT! It may get you raped, or killed. Ted Bundy, the serial killer, was a good-looking, well educated man, who ALWAYS played on the sympathies of unsuspecting women. He walked with a cane, or a limp, and often asked “for help” into his vehicle or with his vehicle, which is when he abducted his next victim.
I’d like you to forward this to all the women you know. It may save a life. A candle is not dimmed by lighting another candle. I was going to send this to the ladies only, but guys, if you love your mothers, 
wives, sisters, daughters, etc., you may want to pass it onto them, as well.
Send this to any woman you know that may need to be reminded that the world we live in has a lot of crazies in it and it’s better safe than sorry.
Friends So Please Share….Your one share can Help to spread this information. We share So many Stupid Things on Facebook and ignore these types of things which can save so many lives’s…
Take care.
Asklotta and staff will MIND YOUR BUSINESS today hoping all women will be safe from rape!
Again, it has been my pleasure to tell you what to do and what NOT to do!

Passing in Peace leaves ALL in Peace!

4 Oct
Dear Readers,
A very kind and loving man passed away gently in his sleep last Thursday, September 27. I am taking a moment today to honor his life for he was a man that not only passed in peace but also passed on a most precious gift, the gift of peace to ALL. 
…Allow me to explain
On July 18 I posted “Divorcing” basically saying there is a time for hurt and pain in divorcing but there also NEEDS to be a time to move on (putting down the swords) for everyone’s sake. So eventually the shattered family could/would be able to become a new whole, a new family, with new rules and boundaries for healing.
I gave the example of Katie Homes and Tom Cruise. I am so very positive there was a tremendous amount of pain to spread around for everyone involved, (including extended families/friends). But they certainly conducted themselves as adults. Their divorce could have played out in the media with unforgivable words and actions spitted at each other with famous divorce lawyers becoming even more rich and famous. But instead they were the model divorcing couple…remaining dignified.
I received a response from a reader who said Wow I haven’t thought about this in years and shared her experience as a child of divorce.
She wrote…(please see July 19 posting for full letter)
“My mother took the high road when my Dad left her for another woman. She never once said a negative thing about my dad after their divorce. She never once said the words “child support” or “money” or “your dad did blankety-blank-blank to me” or “if your dad hadn’t left me…” or “your dad won’t pay for that so you can’t do it.” 
“She never said one negative thing about my stepmom (and from my experience and observation it’s the insecurity of the bio-mom that starts the name-calling and/or bad relationship between a bio-mom and a stepmom — so here’s to you, Mom!). “
“My mother gave me the freedom to love my stepmom. And guess what — I love my mother even more for it. So, my parents gave me the gift of harmony within their divorce, and the gift of many holidays with all three of them. Open minds create open hearts.”
“I still have my parents. They’re 88, soon to be 89. I lost my stepmom recently and would give anything to have her back. But God works in mysterious ways. Instead of my mom and dad living their lives out alone, they like to spend their time together with me. We yuck it up, laugh about the past, try to figure out my brothers, go on rides, and we all miss my stepmom. How’s that for life going full circle? It’s the payoff for two people taking the high road. We all win!”
A week ago Tuesday his daughter and former wife ALL took a drive together to their favorite place to enjoy some time and some fall colors. When Mr. K quietly passed in his sleep just two days later, his daughter had sweet memories of her father, and Tuesday’s words…he said, “I am so happy I am with my family.” All the years and years of kindness allowed that Tuesday’s travel plans as a family, a destination of being ALL together in his final days… But please read on!
A day before Mr. K died he said to his daughter,  “I had your mother put back in my will, it was the lease I could do for all her years of kindness.” AND…
His Obituary reads:
November 09.1923 – September 27, 2012
“Donald K, age 88. beloved husband of the late Eloise M. Loving father….
Dear friend and former spouse to Jean. “The Silver Fox” was a unique guy, to say the least, and always ready to entertain family and friends with hilarious dances, songs, and faces…. he proudly fought for our country in WWII as a pilot in the Army Air Corps. As he put it, he had “a good run” and will forever be remembered for his duck calls, love of the west, exuberant personality, positive attitude in the face of illness, perplexing life decisions, and appreciation of laughter, fresh air, animals, and life.” 
So here’s to you Mr. K, for helping keep our great nation safe, for your sense of humor and for what you left behind….us ALL together! 


BUT with all that said, it was the love in your heart that enabled a peaceful passing for you and for those you needed to leave behind! 
For that Mr. K…
We will ALL be on the West Side, together!
We will ALL be remembering your life, together!
We will ALL be supporting the ones you love, together!
We will ALL be filled with much laughter, together!
We will ALL be missing you, together! 
AND for ALL of that Mr. K., thank you so very much!  For you have left us ALL able to be together in peace!!! 
Asklotta and staff will MIND YOUR BUSINESS today celebrating the life of Mr. K (not a perfect man) but certainly a perfectly loving man.
Again, it has been my pleasure to tell you what to do and what NOT to do!

TGIF – The Jeannie Tate Show

24 Aug
Dear Readers,
TGIF – I was looking through old “Saved Mail” and came across this hilarious video that my daughter sent me in 2007. It is a skit about a soccer mom who is also a talk show host and conducts her show from her minivan! Hmmm somewhat like running a home corporation with dogs employees! 
You will laugh so hard you will cry! OR you will think my sense of humor is somewhat ….wellllll, just cut and paste and you be the judge!
Asklotta and staff will MIND YOUR BUSINESS today on the floor laughing too hard to sit up!
Again, it has been my pleasure to tell you what to do and what NOT to do!

“There’s No Place Like Home”… There Is No Place Like Home!

20 Jun
Dear Readers,
This time of year Boston’s day light begins around 4:30 AM. If by some chance you forgot to pull your bedroom curtains closed the night before, around 4:30 in the morning the light will start to stream in to your bedroom, making it near impossible not to wake up. Personally I love the morning light and I will agree with anyone that 4:30 IS a bit early but it is still lovely to see daylight and to enjoy the longer spring days!  
I felt like Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz….Clicking my heels together, “There’s no place like home” and there is no place like home!
I was leaving Boston on a 1:40 PM flight out of Logan Airport so I had the morning to enjoy! My daughter met me for coffee at 6:50 AM. It was the end of my visit and we had a great sense of accomplishment. We not only settled her in to a new apartment but also had tons of fun in the process. As we drank our coffee and laughed (about silly things) when all of a sudden it came to an abrupt end when my daughter said “we need to leave, don’t want to be late for work.” So I sprang in to action, threw on my sneakers and off I went absorbing all the sights and sounds of Boston’s busy Tuesday morning! 

Once outside of my hotel and walking smartly towards her office I began chattering and clacking again with nothing but nonsense as my arms swung back and forth by my side. I was smiling from ear to ear, loving every second…. You see my daughter does this walk every Monday through Friday and is very knowledgeable of the morning routine and didn’t seem as excited.  A friend once said to me “life is all about the minutia” (sitting having a glass of ice tea with a friend.) What my daughter didn’t realize in that moment in time due to other thoughts bouncing in her head, for me it was just one of those joyful parent moments of doing nothing out of the ordinary (nothing monumental) but I was so thrilled my adult child made room in her life for me! Which I will forever be thankful (please see photos below) 
Ahhh the simple joys of life!  I believe the huge events in one’s life is barely remembered, but life’s minutia, all the small insignificant non-eventful events (that I too didn’t recognize), I hold securely and guard with all my love and gratitude…for these are the precious stories of my life! 
Asklotta and staff will MIND YOUR BUSINESS without a care in the world today!

Again, it has been my pleasure to tell you what to do and what NOT to do?

Opera in Apartment 701

19 Jun
Dear Readers,
A week ago Monday was my last full day in Boston and my great escape was drawing to a conclusion. I suppose all good things must come to an end.  I spent the day in my daughter’s empty (new) apartment waiting for her bed to get delivered and the cable guy to show up. I was helping out my daughter so she did not have to take a day off from work and use one of her very precious and very valuable vacation days… “Just to sit” in an empty apartment waiting for people to arrive…. What is a mother for, right?
I was sitting on the hard wood floor for about two and half hours without anyone making an appearance, which of course surprises NO ONE much-less me! But the most amazing thing happened, someone was singing the most beautiful opera somewhere on the seventh floor and I can assure you my apartment was quite empty but the hall was being filled with the most beautiful voice. I opened the door, walked out in to the hall, only to discover it was the janitor singing in Italian with the most gorgeous opera voice I have heard in such a long time much-less standing a couple of feet away from me! He was in the apartment next door (door open and also empty, he was preparing it for a new tenant) it was astonishing, delightful, and and completely unexpected. Bravo Bravo, Bella…Si prega di Cantare pi’u, I begged for more songs (his smile beamed with joy) which he joyfully obliged. 

I cannot believe millions do not hear such a heavenly voice, that such a talent has gone unnoticed and undiscovered. In a matter of minutes my empty apartment felt cozy and full of life! I thought how lovely for my daughter to have been so lucky to have found such a wonderful creative space to live in.  My motherly worries seemed to vanish; her apartment building had a wonderful feel to it!
I ask you, what is today’s “take-away?” 
I think today’s take away – the universe was speaking in harmony and allowed me to enjoy a few minutes of all its possibilities!  The beautiful sounds and sights that are usually kept hidden escaped for a moment in time…another meaningful coincidence?  OR maybe today’s “take-away”; a rare jewel is never accessible to the masses?
Asklotta and staff will MIND YOUR BUSINESS with the thought; you never know what you will hear while sitting on a hard wood floor (and doing someone a favor!)
Again, it has been my pleasure to tell you what to do and what NOT to do!
Kindest regards,
President and CEO
