    RIP

    Thank you for this post Passo. Too bad you had never heard him play and sing live. It's so beautiful... videos doesn't do his talent justice. He used to sing this to me when he was in the dog house. My heart just melt when he singed to me. The emotions that he poured into the songs.. guess that's why good artists hurt so much. They feel very deeply.

Videos does not do him justice. We are all richer for knowing you Mike! I LOVE YOU! Life sometimes get in the way and we loose sight of all the love that surrounds us. I am forever grateful for you being in my life!

    Thank you xpor1. I am not active on the forums, but from whatever little I saw, you were one of the sincere people who had Mike's best interest at heart. Thank you for being there for him. Mike's core was and is, a gentle soul who felt deeply. When he love, he loved deeply and freely. He really cared for those in real life and on line. When one of you are hurting, he was hurting with you. When one of you are doing well and happy, he was happy with you. I still weep for him on a daily basis from missing him. He was my pillar of strength. Just having him with me gave me courage to be better. Even though he is not physically with me any more, I still feel his presence and the warmth he exuded when he's happy and content. He had endured much hardship in his life, but he never gave up on love. Love for his family, Love for his friends, Love for fishing. Please don't ever forget Mike. When we are forgotten, it's like as if we never existed.

    Thank you everybody for the condolences. I miss my husband dearly and am having a really hard time dealing with his passing. Thank you for remembering him fondly. He was loved when he was alive and he is still loved now that he is gone. Mike has given me many blessings, especially my children whom are our legacies. I am very lucky and privileged to know him and call him my husband. He had helped defined me to be the person I am today. I will forever miss him and remember him for the lovely and caring person he was. Thank you for letting me know your dreams and hopes and sharing them with me! I LOVE YOU FOREVER MIKE! I miss you with all my heart! If I can do things over again, I would just hold you and tell you how much you mean to me and how you changed my life forever! If I can do it all over again, I will tell you that I love you more often and tell you how strong you are. I will always live with my regrets of not spending more time with you and let life get in the way. I am sorry. I LOVE YOU Mike! Nothing had nor will ever change that!

    RIP my dear husband. You are forever loved and missed. We will see each other again one day when my time on this earth comes to an end. I love you always!
  7. I am not sure that I like the call recording feature. I still like calls to be just that.... when it's hung up, there are no traces of the conversation.. I wonder how many people's calls get put out there for unintended ears.
  8. Like everything in life, every action has an equal reaction. Things had advanced further than ever. Wonder what the repercussions are!
  9. Lucky guy! Of all the money I've sink into playing the lottery, I've only gotten back less than $20. If I see it as an investment, I would have lost the farm long ago!
  10. Does this fall under STUNNING revelation or SHOCKING revelation. LOL
  11. BURNSVILLE, Minn. – The Better Business Bureau (BBB) has revoked the accreditation of Minnesota-based MyPillow, lowering its rating to an F based on a pattern of complaints by consumers. The BBB made the decision after reviewing MyPillow’s ongoing “buy one get one free” offer, which violates the organization’s code of advertising. “Among other issues, BBB has attempted to persuade MyPillow to discontinue their “buy one get one free” (BOGO)/other discount offers without success,” said Dana Badgerow, president and CEO of BBB of Minnesota and North Dakota. “Continuous BOGO offers, which can then be construed as an item’s regular, everyday price, violate not only BBB’s Code of Advertising – which all BBB Accredited Businesses agree to abide by – but also other state and national organizations’ rules.” BBB’s Code of Advertising requires that an offer need to be extended for a limited time, or it becomes a continuous offer and therefore the normal price of the product – not a sale price or free offer. In the case of MyPillow, the BBB says anyone can get the BOGO discount codes, and if a prospective customer calls the company without one, they can get the BOGO deal, regardless. MyPillow owner and CEO Mike Lindell responded to the BBB allegations by stating he would not be able to stop the company’s BOGO offer at this time, but would look at making changes in 2017. When pressed on what type of changes the company would make, Lindell was non-specific. Lindell released the following statement Monday evening: “MyPillow was built on our dedication to our customers’ satisfaction. We run sales and specials for our customers, so that we can give as many people as possible the chance to have a great night’s sleep. Naturally, I am terribly disappointed by the BBB’s decision. “When I started MyPillow more than 11 years ago, I handled each and every customer call personally. To this day, I train all of our customer service representatives with one thing in mind, we take care of our customers because we owe them our success. We have sold more than 25 million MyPillows, but we will continue to treat each and every customer like they are our only one. “From myself and our 1,500 employees, we want to thank our loyal customers.” The BOGO complaint was not the only issue or complaint the BBB brought to MyPillow’s attention. “As Seen on TV” claims are sometimes listed on MyPillow boxes where the content is NOT the same as seen on the company’s TV ads. The company has made an effort to remove this, but it can still be seen on third party seller packaging (Walmart, Target, etc.) Photos of MyPillow on some boxes show the premium, gusseted pillow, when the box actually holds their standard pillow. The company has made an effort to correct this, but it can still be seen on some third party seller packaging. Claims of offering a “full warranty” when the warranty was not full (customers need to pay a fee to return the pillow). A pattern of complaints filed against MyPillow has been identified by BBB regarding customers’ understanding of the buy one/get one free offer. A substantial number of the 232 complaints filed against the company regard confusion on the offer. “We are hopeful that MyPillow will modify their advertising and eliminate discount offers, since the pillows need to be sold at a “regular price” for the majority of the time,” Badgerow said. This is just the latest bump in the road for MyPillow. In November Lindell agreed to pay a penalty of $1 million after a group of California County Attorneys took legal action against the company, alleging deceptive advertising. A consumer watchdog organization said MyPillow’s website made unsubstantiated claims its products can cure snoring, migraines, fibromyalgia, and other health maladies. Lindell agreed to the settlement, but insisted he made no medical claims whatsoever, saying MyPillow simply posted customer comments on the website. He told NBC News he is settling the charges simply because it makes financial sense, and is not an admission of guilt. USA Today Network
  12. It's exhausting to see people using the legal system to gain a buck. It's got far reaching implications.
  13. By SCOTT SONNER RENO, Nev. (AP) — Madeleine Pickens wanted the African-American chef she recruited from the country club she owns in Southern California to cook "black people food" — not "white people food" — at her rural Nevada dude ranch and wild horse sanctuary, according to a federal lawsuit accusing her of racial discrimination. Armand Appling says the wealthy philanthropist and ex-wife of Oklahoma energy tycoon T. Boone Pickens told him fried chicken, BBQ ribs and corn bread would be perfect for the tourists who pay nearly $2,000 a night to stay in plush cottages, ride horses and take Wild West "safaris" on ATVs at her Mustang Monument Wild Horse Eco-Resort. Appling alleges he was fired 2014 in retaliation for complaining about a hostile work environment. He says Pickens' stereotypical references were commonplace at the Elko County ranch stretching across 900 square miles on the edge of the Ruby Mountains about 50 miles west of the Utah line. Among other things, he says Pickens, who is white, instructed him to terminate two other black kitchen staffers — one she referred to as her "bull" or "ox" and another who had "too much personality." He says she told him they didn't "look like people we have working at the country club" and didn't "fit the image" of the staff she wanted at the ranch. Pickens' lawyers argue that even if all the allegations are true, none of her comments were racially motivated. At worst, Pickens' remarks "reflect a non-racial personality conflict and amount to discourtesy, rudeness or lack of sensitivity," they wrote in recent court filings. U.S. District Judge Miranda Du said during a hearing in Reno last week that Appling's lawyers have failed so far to prove the sort of racial hostility needed to win such a civil rights claim. She dismissed the original lawsuit that was filed in February but gave them until Jan. 13 to refile an amended complaint seeking unspecified damages from Pickens' nonprofit, Save America's Mustangs. "It takes a lot to prove these allegations," Du told California attorney Willie Williams on Thursday. Du agreed with Pickens' lawyer, Dora Lane of Reno, that the only comment that specifically referred to race was the reference to "black people food." Lane said categorizing foods by ethnicity is commonplace in the restaurant industry. Some restaurants serve Mexican food, others Chinese or Thai food, she said. "The suggestion that such categorizations are inherently offensive is nonsense," Lane argued in earlier court documents. "This is especially true here, given that Pickens' alleged comments actually reflect a preference for 'black people food' rather than a racial animas against 'black people' or 'black people food.'" Williams said Pickens' comments about the fired employees "not fitting in" reinforces a long history of African-Americans not being allowed into elite, private-club settings. Pickens owns the exclusive Del Mar Country Club north of San Diego where Appling worked before she hired him for a 5-month stint in Nevada. "In many cases, the people fighting to keep African-Americans out of these private clubs would use code phrases like 'they do not fit the image,'" Williams said in court documents. He added the use of the words "ox" and "bull" implies ownership of property, given "America's long history of slavery where they were considered personal property of their owners." Lane argued it was a complimentary reference to physical strength and "was not accompanied by any overtly racial slurs." "Indeed, Appling does not allege that he ever heard any overtly racial epithets, such as the 'N-word,'" she wrote in court documents. But Williams told the judge last week the comments must be viewed in the context of racial stereotypes. Du agreed that Lane's arguments focus on the "plain meaning of words" while seemingly ignoring the context of comments made about "African-Americans in history and stereotypes that could give rise to racial animas." "If the alleged comments were not directed at him, but others who look like him, it may affect his work environment," the judge said.
  14. Ridiculous! That guys is looking for a fast buck.
