"Woman Charged After Trying To Rip Off Husband’s Penis"

From Racine County Eye:

"A woman suffering from postpartum-depression and other mental health issues was charged after she punched, bit and tried to 'rip off' her husband’s penis at a residence in the 3400 block of Ivy Lane on Monday, according to a criminal complaint by the Racine County District Attorney’s Office.

"The 28-year-old Caledonia woman was charged with a misdemeanor count of battery – domestic abuse, disorderly conduct – domestic abuse assessments, and a misdemeanor count of bail jumping. If convicted, the woman faces up to one year, three months in prison and/or fines up to $21,000.

"According to the criminal complaint, the woman had been drinking and had just starting taking her medication for a mental health issue when she confronted her husband about cheating on her. She had also been evicted from her home earlier that day. The man refused to let the woman take their baby and her two children from the home, and the two started arguing.

"A witness told an officer with the Caledonia Police Department that the woman lunged at her mother-in-law, who was holding the baby, and knocked her down to the ground. She then lunged at her husband, who lost his shirt and his pants were pulled down.

"The woman 'began hitting him with a closed fist and opened hand approximately 13 times, as well as bit him in his left shoulder.' She also 'grabbed his penis in a violent manner as if she wanted to rip it off,' and the woman 'refused to release his penis, she ended up on the ground,' according to the complaint.

"The man had several scrapes and scratches, but did not seek medical treatment. He told police that he didn’t want the woman arrested, but wanted her to get help for her mental health issues."

A Time to Reflect

Some days there are times you hear a song on the radio or during a movie that puts you back in time. To me this is one of those songs.

Kick back for a few minutes and enjoy.

Some Where Over the Rainbow....

Israel Kamakawiwo'ole's medley of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" (from The Wizard of Oz) and Louis Armstrong's "What A Wonderful World" is almost impossibly beautiful, and has been used in many tv shows and movies, including ER, Scrubs, 50 First Dates, Meet Joe Black, and Finding Forrester.

Israel Kamakawiwo'ole died in 1997 at the age of 38. He had suffered from morbid obesity his entire life, topping 750 pounds at one point. He died in the middle of the night of respiratory failure. He was laid in honor in Hawaii's Capitol building, and his ashes were later scattered into the ocean. He left behind his wife and young teenaged daughter

Billy Joel - "You May Be Right"

Switching Back and Forth

An elderly couple was at home watching TV.

Phil had the remote and was switching back and forth between a fishing channel and the porn channel.

Sally became more and more annoyed and finally said: "For god's sake Phil, Leave it on the porn channel. You know how to fish!"

I Bet you didn't see that coming

Dear Madame Zoltar

Hello, my heavenly horde!  The monsoons here have left a few people high and dry, but thousands more are experiencing crop failure for lack of water. 

It’s time to remind drivers, wet leaves can be as slippery as black ice.  Watch out for the kids.

I’m very disappointed in the summer weather we “enjoyed” this year. That’s all we can do about it: complain.  It’s rained for the last two days and that knocked a lot of foliage off of the trees.   

I have fond memories of burning the leaves in the fall. A doctor of the highest caliber once told me that smells are our strongest, primal  sensor.

And I also have fall memories of my favorite team, the Green Bay Packers.  Wearing their hat gives you the privilege to shout out a hoot and a holler every now and again. They slaughtered the Miami Dolphins last weekend.  Now, this Sunday the great Packers take on the Carolina Panthers at 7:30 PM on Carolina turf.  Slaughter them, too, please.

I see from the front page of the newspaper and on many local TV stations, that there was a mini-riot at the Housing Authority of Racine County because they started accepting applications.. It's rather embarrassing, seeing so many turn out so early (many slept overnight).  It speaks to the poverty of our community.

I hope we see a healthy number of challengers to Mr. Mayor Dickert. I'd love to see a clean race.


In the meantime I have to assume that anything goes.

See you in the funny papers Mr. Mayor.

Glen Campbell - "I'm Not Gonna Miss You"

"In June 2011, Campbell announced he had been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease six months earlier.[48]

Campbell went on a final "Goodbye Tour", with three of his children joining him in his backup band;[49][50] his last show was on November 30, 2012, in Napa, California.[51] Campbell sang "Rhinestone Cowboy" as a goodbye at the 2012 Grammy Awards ceremony held on February 12, 2012.[52]

In April 2014, news reports indicated the 78-year-old Campbell had become a patient at an Alzheimer's long-term care and treatment facility.[53][54]"

Local Loyalty - Sound Decisions

Good morning!
Today, I bring you -

1440 S Green Bay Rd
 (262) 633-8300
Hours - 
Mon - Fri 8:30-6
Sat 8:30-4
Sun closed

I had a wonderful time visiting with Chris, the owner. 
His dad actually started the business in Kenosha, back in 1972.
They later moved to Lathrop Ave, then to Greenbay road, 
where Best Buy originally was, next to the old Menards, before moving to their current location, with that awesome, bright pink mailbox!
Boy, has this town changed!
What started with home audio, 
how entails car audio, alarms, 
remote starters for your car/vehicle, 
and also includes dash cams and window tinting. 
Last winter was brutally cold. 
This year is predicted to be possibly even worse. 
Personally, I can't face another frozen winter, having to sit in my car, freezing my hiney off, waiting for my car's pitiful, frozen engine to warm enough to drive home. 
With that in mind, I had Sound Decisions put a remote start
in my car. Now, when I'm close to ready to leave, I can start it up,
from the warmth of the house, and go out, and get into a cozy, warm car, when it's well below zero out. I'm in no way looking forward to the arctic winter, but feel much better knowing I will not have to freeze in the process. 
One thing that makes Sound Decisions unique, is that they are very old fashioned in how they do business. People are people, not numbers. 
They take the time with you, one on one, you work with the very people that work on your car. It's personal, it's the way things used to be, and the way things should still be. 
They employ some of the best trained people within 100 miles. 
They have one of the top 100 installers in the US. 
The people that work there, are long term employees, who take great pride in what they do, and are awesome at their jobs. 
Please check out their site, through the link above.
You can also follow them -

Whether you're like me, needing help in the cold,
want to rock your car out with an amazing sound system,
or want some privacy with a nice tint, go to Chris and his crew,
they'll take great care of you!
Please be sure to let him know you saw it here!
