About Me

Married, 2 kids a boy and a girl. Two dogs, both boxers, a cat that I'm pretty sure is at least part maine coon..who knows. I found him in my driveway freezing and starving. I enjoy reading, music, I watch entirely too much tv and Republicans make me sick. I think family is the most important thing. Anything else you wanna know, just ask. :-)

Couple Accidentally Texts Strangers About Newborn, Strangers Show Up to Congratulate Them

at Hospital

A texting mix-up over a newborn resulted in a heartwarming moment between strangers.

Tallahassee, Florida, man Dennis Williams received a group text on Saturday, March 19, informing him that a couple was having a baby.

"We are at the hospital. Having a baby today!" the text read, followed by, "She has dilated to between 5-6."

"Congrats lol but I think someone got the wrong number," Dennis wrote back after he and his brother Deorick Williams read the message

But that text went unheeded, and soon enough, the pair received a picture of the newborn, to which Dennis responded, "Well I don't know y'all but me and the boys will be thru to take picture with the baby."


The family, Lindsey and Mark Knox and their newborn son Cason, later posted on Facebook about the whole thing themselves, writing, "What a blessing these two guys were to our family. They were so sweet and kind to do this! You 2 are great guys and thank you for giving to someone you didn't know! If we all only had this kind of a heart."


I love this story!

Did you see Deadpool? Me: I loved it.

Are you going to see Batman v Superman?
Me: Coming out of my skin excited to see it. Wonder Woman-What?!?!

Team Iron Man or Team Captain America?
Me: I cannot make a choice that won't scar my soul.

No to all of the above, you don't pay attention to any of this nonsense?

The Hulk is sick of Trump..

Is anyone else seeing how many Democrats

in Ohio are crossing over to vote for Trump? On MSNBC right now. Crazy...

edited to add. Six times the amount. That's the number they just reported.

2nd edit: it's a question are they voting Trump, not a statement. That's how the telly reported it. They spoke to some that said they voted for Trump.

Flint Polling Places Ran Out Of Ballots, Turned Voters Away

FLINT, MI — At least one Flint, Michigan polling location ran out of Democratic ballots on Tuesday, forcing voters to either wait over an hour for city clerks to deliver new ones or to leave their phones numbers to be called when more ballots arrived.

Grace Emmanuel Church, one of the busiest polling locations in Flint servicing Precinct 49, ran out of ballots for the presidential primary around 4 p.m., a poll worker confirmed to ThinkProgress. Flint’s NBC25 reported that two other locations across the city ran out of ballots as well.

Loyce Driskell, an elections administrator at Grace Emmanuel, told ThinkProgress that she has worked at the polls for four elections, but this is the first time she has seen a location run out of ballots. A city clerk did not deliver more ballots to the location until around 5:30 p.m., the beginning of the evening rush.

Driskell said she took down the phone numbers for ten people who did not have time to wait. Seven she was later able to reach, and they told her they would come back to vote. Three of the numbers were disconnected or she was not able to reach the voter.

The increased national attention on Flint likely created increased interest in the primary. Both Democratic candidates have visited the city and they held a debate here on Sunday, much of which focused on the water that is continuing to poison the city’s residents.

“Absolutely there’s more interest this year,” she said. “I think the water crisis, maybe the debate. I just think that Flint is on the map for the world to see and I just think all of that has really gotten voters to turn out.”


This shouldn't happen. Voters shouldn't be turned away.
