THE REAL STORY OF CASEY JOHNSON'S SHORT SCANDALOUS LIFE


Casey Johnson

The daughter of billionaire Jets owner Woody Johnson, Casey Johnson was born into unimaginable wealth — and terrible demons. Now, for the first time, her mother tells the shocking story behind her tragic end

America was stunned when “poor little rich girl” Casey Johnson, the troubled first-born daughter of billionaire New York Jets owner Woody Johnson, was found dead at age 30 in January 2010.

The Band-Aid heiress had been cut off from her fortune and family, whose help she refused. Her death from complications of diabetes sadly ended a short but scandalous life.



Now, Casey’s turbulent world is ex-amined in JERRY OPPENHEIMER’S new bombshell unauthorized biography, “Crazy Rich: Power, Scandal, and Tragedy Inside the Johnson & Johnson Dynasty.”

Casey’s socialite mother, Sale Johnson, along with relatives and friends, spoke candidly for the first time since her death. Now, in an exclusive excerpt, Oppenheimer paints an astonishing picture of the doomed heiress and the role her mother and father played in their daughter’s life and tragic end . . .

JL HUDSON'S MAURICE SALAD RECIPE!


Recipe Description

This salad was made famous in the Detroit area during the height of the “downtown” Hudson building. This closely guarded recipe was served in their store restaurant. The historic building no longer exists, but the recipe does. Taste a little bit of history with this unique salad!

Preparation Instructions

In a small bowl, whisk together the first 11 salad dressing ingredients until smooth (mayonnaise, grated onion, 1 mashed hardboiled egg, lemon juice, sugar, vinegar, mustard powder, black pepper, salt, milk or buttermilk). Because of the mashed egg, it will be a bit lumpy. (If you’re not lazy like me, feel free to blend using a blender to make it creamier.) Add a little more milk if necessary to thin it out a bit. Dressing should be the consistency of a thick ranch. Add the parsley and tarragon last, folding them into the dressing but mixing well. Cover, and let chill for at least one hour. (Overnight is best—it tastes fantastic the next day).


For the salad, chop the turkey/chicken, ham, cheese, cucumber, onion and pickles julienne style. (Save six pickles and leave them whole, for garnish on each plate.) Combine all ingredients onto the salad artfully. Each salad should have 6-8 olives. Garnish with an extra sprinkle of chopped tarragon, a few extra whole small gherkin pickles, the sliced hard-boiled egg, and a lemon wedge.



Enjoy!
Ingredients

1 cup Mayonnaise (not Miracle Whip!)
3 Tablespoons Grated Onion (so Fine That It's Almost A Liquid)
2 whole Eggs, Hardboiled -- One Mashed Finely For The Dressing, The Other Sliced For Salad Garnish
2 teaspoons Freshly Squeezed Lemon Juice
2 teaspoons White Sugar
1 Tablespoon White Or White Wine Vinegar
½ teaspoons Dry Mustard Powder
1-½ teaspoon Dijon Style Prepared Mustard
1 pinch Ground Black Pepper
1 pinch Of Salt
1 Tablespoon Milk Or Buttermilk
3 Tablespoons Fresh Parsley Chopped Finely
2 Tablespoons Fresh Tarragon, Chopped Finely
1 whole Head Of Iceberg Or Romaine Lettuce, Torn Into Bite-sized Pieces
½ pounds Cooked Turkey Or Grilled Chicken Breast
½ pounds Cooked Ham
10 ounces, weight Swiss Cheese
¼ cups Sweet White Onion
½ whole Cucumber, Peeled
1 jar (5-6 Oz. Jar) Pimento Stuffed Green Olives
18 whole Sweet Gherkin Pickles
1 whole Lemon, Sliced Into Wedges, For Garnish

AQUARIUS FULL MOON TONIGHT!


Magic at Hand

On July 22, the skies are graced with a Full Moon in the sign of Aquarius. Known for eccentricity and constant activity, this Air sign holds a certain amount of nervous energy. That can translate into erratic behavior, or it could be electric. This Full Moon promises a helping of each, with a focus on the latter. The end result can be transformative…with a wave of your magical, metaphysical wand.

Today's Full Moon lights up your sign, flooding into every aspect of your waking life. It's as if your subconscious mind is at high tide. The Moon works primarily in the dream realms, but now its influence overflows into the real world. Welcome the emotional storms that can clear the air. Let the waters wash the beaches as you ride upon larger-than-life waves while they last. Thankfully, you'll have time to assimilate your experience when the intensity begins to dissipate tomorrow.

SUPER FULL MOON JULY 22 2013!!


On July 22, the skies are graced with a Full Moon in the sign of Aquarius. Known for eccentricity and constant activity, this Air sign holds a certain amount of nervous energy. That can translate into erratic behavior, or it could be electric. This Full Moon promises a helping of each, with a focus on the latter. The end result can be transformative…with a wave of your magical, metaphysical wand.



Grab Hold of the Current

Finally, once you’re vibrating at the frequency of your desires, now is the time to draw it to you. Aquarius is the Water Bearer. What does this mean exactly?

The Water Bearer draws the tides, which are controlled by the Moon, conducting electricity. An Aquarius Full Moon then, by its very definition, is an ideal time to give energy to your dreams, because it’s just the time when one can catch spark and take flight. It’s time to think about what you really want and take the steps to make it happen.



What is a supermoon?

This upcoming July 2013 supermoon won’t be as “super” as the supermoon in June. On the night of June 22-23, the moon reached the crest of its full phase within an hour of the time of perigee, or the moon’s closest point.

The July supermoon is actually the third full supermoon to happen in 2013. The first one was in May. Why so many supermoons? The reason is that the definition, as coined by astrologer Richard Nolle has defined a supermoon as:


… a new or full moon which occurs with the moon at or near (within 90% of) its closest approach to Earth in a given orbit. That’s a pretty generous definition and allows for many supermoons. By this definition, according to Nolle: There are 4-6 supermoons a year on average.

As always, this July, although the full moon comes at the same instant for everyone worldwide, the clock reads differently according to time zone. In the United States, the July full moon will occur on July 22 at 2:16 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time, 1:16 p.m. Central Daylight Time, 12:16 p.m. Mountain Daylight Time and 11:16 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time.


In North America, we often call the July full moon the Buck Moon, Thunder Moon or Hay Moon. At this time of year, buck deer grow velvety antlers, thunderstorms rage and farmers struggle to put hay into their barns.

The exact time of the next full moon is:
Monday * 22nd July 2013 * 08:15:30 pm
Central European Summer Time (CEST)
Moon sign: Aquarius 00° 05'

COURAGEOUS MEDIA TRAILBLAZER HELEN THOMAS DIED AT 92


Helen Thomas, the tenacious and feisty dean of the White House press corps who covered 10 presidents and was a trailblazer for female journalists, has died. She was 92.

Thomas died today at her apartment in Washington, her friend Muriel Dobbin told the Associated Press. She had been in declining health and had recently been hospitalized.


Thomas was raised mainly in Detroit, Michigan, where her family moved when she was four years old, and where her father ran a grocery store.



Helen Thomas (August 4, 1920 – July 20, 2013) was an American author and former news service reporter, member of the White House press corps and opinion columnist. She worked for the United Press and post-1958 successor United Press International (UPI) for 57 years, first as a correspondent, and later as White House bureau manager.
 
She was a columnist for Hearst Newspapers from 2000 to 2010, writing on national affairs and the White House. She covered the administrations of ten U.S. presidents—from the final years of the Eisenhower administration to the second year of the Obama administration.

Thomas was the first female officer of the National Press Club, the first female member and president of the White House Correspondents' Association, and the first female member of the Gridiron Club.


She wrote six books; her latest, with co-author Craig Crawford, is Listen Up, Mr. President: Everything You Always Wanted Your President to Know and Do (2009). Thomas retired on June 7, 2010, following controversial comments she made about Israel, Israeli Jews and the Israeli–Palestinian conflict . READ MORE

DETROIT: LARGEST CITY TO FILE FOR BANKRUPTCY IN US HISTORY


Detroit Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr announced that the city has reached key settlements with creditors as the city tries to relieve itself of billions in debt.

Snyder signed off on the filing in a letter attached to court documents filed Thursday in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in the Eastern District of Michigan. A spokeswoman for Snyder did not immediately return telephone calls Thursday.

"It is clear that the financial emergency in Detroit cannot be successfully addressed outside of such a filing, and it is the only reasonable alternative that is available," Snyder said in the letter granting his state-required approval. "In other words, the City's financial emergency cannot be satisfactorily rectified in a reasonable period of time absent this filing."

Snyder continued: "I have reached the conclusion that this step is necessary after a thorough review of all the available alternatives, and I authorize this necessary step as a last resort to return this great City to financial and civic health for its residents and taxpayers. This decision comes in the wake of 60 years of decline for the city, a period in which reality was often ignored." FULL STORY HERE

TINA TURNER AND ERWIN BACH MARRIED!!

Tina and Erwin

ZURICH (Reuters) - Singer Tina Turner has married her long-time partner in a civil ceremony in Switzerland ahead of a Buddhist celebration at their home on the banks of Lake Zurich on Sunday.


The 73-year-old "Simply the Best" singer tied the knot with German-born record producer Erwin Bach at a registry office in the Kuesnacht suburb of Zurich where they live, a municipal official said on Wednesday.


The Official Invitation! - The bride and groom kneeled side by side on a special pedestal to give their guests the opportunity to bestow their individual blessings. This they did, one by one, by gently pouring water over the hands of the couple. The water passed through the hands of the bride and groom and into a flower filled vessel beneath.

Turner, an eight-time Grammy winner known for songs like "River Deep, Mountain High" and "Private Dancer", will celebrate the wedding with a Buddhist water ceremony at her lakefront mansion this weekend, Swiss newspapers reported.

GOODBYE FINN: CORY MONTEITH DEAD AT 31



Michelle Duree: One episode. Just have one episode dedicated to him. An episode with all of his goofy outtakes and scenes. An episode where everyone says how they felt about him and everything. A dedicated remembrance. Something to give everyone just a little bit of closure :(((

By Alex Dobuzinskis (Reuters) - Canadian actor Cory Monteith, 31-year-old heartthrob of Fox's musical comedy television series "Glee", was found dead on Saturday in his Vancouver hotel room, police said. 

Police and paramedics found no signs of foul play and the cause of death was not clear, British Columbia Chief Coroner Lisa Lapointe said at a news conference. Monteith's representatives issued a statement, saying, "We are in shock and mourning this tragic loss" but offering no details on the possible cause of death. ...

THE URBAN FAIRY DOORS OF ANN ARBOR



The Fairy Doors of Ann Arbor are a series of small doors that are a type of installation art found in the city of Ann Arbor in the U.S. state of Michigan. The first one appeared in the baseboards of the home of Jonathan and Kathleen Wright in 1993.


These are the original fairy doors. There have been others discovered/built/manufactured since these first appeared. Some of the later ones might be legitimate fairies.... others are obviously some sort of human ploy to make money, others are earnest efforts by humans to attract fairies, and a few might be some darker force at work!



The 1st fairy door encounter was in 1993, in the Wright home. Several others followed over the years and in 2005 urban-fairy fairy doors began appearing elsewhere around Ann Arbor.


Subsequently several others were discovered in their home; in the fireplace surround and two in the kitchen. On April 7, 2005 the first was seen in public on the exterior of Sweetwaters Coffee and Tea. Since then, ten more have shown up around Ann Arbor (as well as a "goblin door" parody), and seven of the original "public" doors still exist
