Updates:

On my niece: My niece is due to have her baby boy in the next week or so. So far she has not been hurt by her boyfriend. Though we believe she is being mentally abused. She is too scared of her boyfriend. Very jumpy when he calls. Still she will not admit that he abuses her. Lately, she spends a lot of time with her mother and dad, they suspect she is still being beaten. There are no visible signs on her body. I haven't seen her in the last month but I have spoken to her. She wants me to witness her baby being born. I told her that I would but I am sure that he will be in the room too. So I really don't know if I will actually go through with it. I don't think I could stand being around him. I've never met this young man. He should be about 19 and she is 21. She is still working and just bought her a car. He is still unemployed. Keep her in your prayers.



On Flava Flav: I have to admit it, I have been watching his show. I'm addicted to seeing these women crying anad fighting over this man. Though I don't get it, I do believe that New York really like this man. She passed the lie detector test. I hopes she gets him. This has been the highlight of my Sunday nights. It's too funny. Everyone needs love so I hope these women get what they want.


On older women and young men: My friends' older aunt dump the young dude. She figured it out. My girlfriend said the woman said she knew he was using her but she was using him too. See the older woman was smarter than I thought.

On baking sweet potato pies: I finally baked a sweet potato pie from scatch. Everybody loved it. I never heard so many, "this is so good" and may I have another piece in my life."I used the recipe mom gave me and I must admit, it was the first time the pie was eaten all up at my home. I guess mom knew best. I really needed help with this baking thing.

I learned this lesson: sometimes you have to let things simmer and happen. When folks get tired or want to make something happen they will. My niece, I believe will leave the abusive relationship if he goes after that baby. The older woman got what she wanted and I learned to bake a great pie. Who said you never stop learning.

I remember swearing off watching the Flavor Flav show, but I have...can't help myself...it's too stupid funny not to watch it

I like that! You're never to old to ejoy the goods of life. (smile) I agree with bostonpbble you never stop learning.

And Flav that another show that I don't watch. All though I did watch it once. I thought he was ugly as all get out!!!! Lol. That I really don't understand. Yes! I would give them a lie dector test too!

Looks truly is not an issue there.

I dispise people who hurt women and children

Michelle said...

How interesting would life be if we stopped learning? Congrats on the pie. Wanna bake another one that you can send to me?

I'm praying for your niece and her situation. Seeing you in the delivery room, whether her boyfriend is there or not would mean a lot to her -- I hope you choose to support her.

Stephen Bess said...

Yeah, I love the Flav show. It's like watching an old buddy since I used to be a big fan of Public Enemy back in the day. I'm going for New York too. :)

Hassan said...

I peep Flav as well when I get the chance. I attempted to TiVo the last episode, but I failed at getting it recorded.

We already know what youe neice is going to do. He's outta there...

Pie shole' sounds nice...

Dr. Deborah Serani said...

I like Flavor's show too. Strangely drawn into it. I love learning and see life as an endless learning experience! And now I have to learn how to get some sweet potato pie today!!

Clare said...

That pie looked lovely Rose :). Shame you can't send pies over the internet!!

***Double_Oh_No*** said...

Never had sweet potato pie, though I've been quite curious about it--Looks like pumpkin pie.

Who is Flava Flav? I'm feeling left out!

Abuse seem to be so common among young women in our society today. Someone need to knock some sense in these young punks (cause if they're daddy's aren't beating on them neither should their so called boyfriends. I wish you and family much peace as new life will enter into your hearts.

Flavor Flav is a show-stopper for me. Gauranteed laff- I do hope New York is chosen because she of all seem very sincere about her love and devotion for Flav. Hoopz is too pretty to put up with his bs. We'll see this weekend.

Older women and younger men- what a perfect combination!

Sweet Potato pie, YUMMY! One of my favorite after meal treats.

Lesson Learned, you can't change the world but you can always change the faults you see in yourself. The end result is a better place for us all if we work on the inside first.

I haven't seen Flav's show, but I did see Bobby Brown's show and my head still hurts from the stupidity.

NellaBella said...

HI THERE ROSE. I JUST WANTED TO LET YOU KNOW TO CHANGE MY LINK TO YOUR PAGE TO http://nellasmith.wordpress.com/ AND YOU MUST REGISTER TO LEAVE COMMENTS. PLEASE STOP BY SOON.

i still can't understand what those girls see from Flav... hmm....

"N" Search of Ecstasy said...

Oh goodness! It does not sound like your niece is in a very good situation. I’m sorry to hear that and with a new baby on the way its just so sad.

I have not been watching Flava of Love, but I did see a recap of the girl spitting in the the other girls face. That was crazy! I would have had to stomp her in the ground after that!

ProfessorB said...

It's great when you cook something and other people eat it all up. That's so much more fulfilling than going out to eat somewhere.

Deirdre said...

The flava show is pure entertainment....lol

I love your posts Rose...just reading don't mind me:)

CQ said...

I will be praying for your niece. I know all to well what it is like to be pregnant and be in an abusive relationship. I pray that it doesn't take anything happening to the baby to wake her up, but that because of the baby she will be strong enough to leave. My son made me that strong only because I didn't want him to be in the crossfire of his father's rage. Stay strong for your niece, she will need that now more than ever.

Congrats on your pie! Mama's recipes always work.

Flavor Flav is the show! I am addicted to it. I watch twice on Sundays.

Mrs. Rose...this is such a beautiful and heartfelt post....

It is an unfortunate thing when women endure relationship abuse. I hope and pray that things with your niece gets better. Lord knows that if she were my sister, I'd be just as heated about the whole thing as you are. No one wants to see their loved ones being hurt by anyone.

You know what...this Flava Flav' thing...Flavor of Love...umm...honestly, I think its staged. Meaning, that its all just for show. I don't think that these women really want him. I think its acting. After all, New York said she is an aspiring actress and Hoopz is a model in real life. So I think these girls are trying to get exposure to further their careers. I seriously doubt that they will be together. This show is like a ghetto-fied version of "The Bachelor".

Older women and younger men. This is an interesting topic that I don't have much to say about, considering the fact that I'm a young woman. But I'm glad the lady wasn't heartbroken, with all her years of experience, I think she knows what she's doing.

Sweet potato pie!! Can I have some!?!! My Granny and Mom make great sweet potato pies and I need to learn how to make one myself!! lol. I should get their recipes and practice so I can make delicious thanksgiving and Christmas dinners like they do.

I still pray for your niece every day...thanks so much for hte update. Now the best part comes the baby! :)

Love,
Sarah
