I got Sumthin T' Say!
Didn't Mandisa sing that song Tuesday night. This girl has some serious voice pipes. My girlfriend called me and said, she is the best singer. Do you think that voters would let her win even though she is heavy? We both agreed that her weight will certainly hindered her in this competition. Isn't that sad that weight can stop people from achieving something? We need to change and vote on people because they are great at what they are competing in and not because of their weight, race, or sex.
Thanks to Georgia Peach and Envizable who have really supported me as an author. To all those who I considered my blogging family members, thank you so much for your vote. I am so proud to be in this contest with major authors who are doing extremely well in this arena. I am humbled to even be in this competition at this point in my writing career. Thanks so much. This contest will not end unitl April 15. So for those who haven't voted yet, you can by Just go to: http://www.cushcity.com/displaypages/votingnew.php, scroll down to Rose Jackson-Beavers and click then go down to end of list and click vote. Why do I want to end up in the top 10 position? This is free publicity for me. I could never afford this kind of publicity for several years. The cost of publicity runs about 6500.00 per quarter to get this kind of publicity. It not only helps me but it also gives exposure for my other authors. I need your vote.
I was tagged by Brooklyn Babe: (thought I forgot, didn't you?)

Bra size - A proud 38 D. Is that good or bad?
Chore I hate - Mowing the lawn. I did this alot after my older brothers left home.
Dad's name - L. J. When I was little I used to make up names for him like Larry Joe, Lawrence James, I didn't want people to know that my dad and his brothers all had initials for names.
Essential make-up - Barely there, or something in the brown or deep family Lip stick, and eye liner. Takes something special to put on more make-up. I hate base make up. I feel trapped wearing it.
