Hiking at Purgatory Park in Minnesota

Posted by prettysleepy on October 3, 2015 in Animals, Minnesota, Photography |

Minnesota has so many great places to get out and enjoy nature. I recently discovered Purgatory Park, and I only went there because of the name. It turned out to be very pretty, even on a rainy day. It was named after Purgatory Creek, which flows through it. The park is also a dog friendly, off leash park. Many people just let their pups run free. Unfortunately, that isn’t an option for us.

How to get the most awesome shave ever!

Posted by prettysleepy on September 30, 2015 in Home Life, Social Media, Trivia |

Screenshot 2015-09-30 12.06.10I came across a post on Reddit that I found so useful I’d like to share it. The lady who contributed this information was a dancer for four years. Her advice on shaving her private parts earned Reddit Gold and it works!

Here are the steps to getting a smooth, bump free shave:

  1. Exfoliate
  2. Rub the area with baby oil (to soften the hair and skin)
  3. Shave using a men’s razor (one with four blades) and men’s moisturizing shaving cream.
  4. Dab some rubbing alcohol on the skin after you shave to kill bacteria and close your pores.
  5. Then apply deodorant (an unscented Dove stick works best) liberally.
  6. This will keep you dry down there so you won’t chafe and prevents razor bumps.

From the post: You will have the smoothest giney ever. Mine was always flawless, I was a dancer for four years and did this almost daily. I posted this same routine under my old account and I got TONS of messages in my inbox with girls thanking me for their blemish-free pies click here to view it: Strippers of Reddit (and others who may have opinions), what are some tips to keep my lady parts blemish free ?

Minnesota photographs from August and September

Posted by prettysleepy on September 10, 2015 in Minnesota, Photography with Comments closed |

imageWe moved to Minnesota and found it to be very beautiful. We’re enjoying the scenery but heard the winters can be rough. By everyone we meet. That’s right, every single person I enter a conversation with warns me about winter. It’s actually become a joke with our family.

Kill List Found at Thompson’s Station TN High School

Thompson's Station, Tennessee

Thompson’s Station, Tennessee

A kill list was found on the bathroom wall in the boy’s bathroom of Thompson’s Station, TN. The school resource officers figured out the student responsible and he is in Williamson County Juvenile Detention. The student was charged with disorderly conduct, vandalism under $500 and communicating a threat concerning a school employee.

The list contained the names of twenty students and was found on April 1, 2015; which incidentally is April Fools Day. I wonder if this intended as a prank. If so, it is an excellent example of poor judgement.

They were able to figure out who it was by watching video and matching it up to the students on the list.

Principal Campbell sent the following notice to parents 46 minutes after the first message:

“Hello Independence families. This is Todd Campbell, principal of Independence High School. I am calling to update you on my earlier call, and let you know that a student has confessed to writing the threatening graffiti found in the boy’s bathroom. Thank you for your support as we conducted our investigation.”

#Hashtags in Twitter during sports and entertainment events

Posted by Amy Z on March 27, 2015 in News, Reviews, Social Media, Trivia with Comments closed |

Screenshot 2015-03-27 15.08.56This is a brief explanation of how hashtags on Twitter can be used in a very successful way during a concert or entertainment event.

Twitter Marketing Example:  Katy Perry’s use of Twitter and hashtags was very successful during her 2011 concert tour.

FYI: A hashtag is a tag used to categorize messages on Twitter by topic. A hashtag must be ten characters or less and is always preceded by the pound (#) sign.

Pre-planning: Her marketing team assigned each concert stop in the tour a unique hashtag.

Marketing Campaign: People at the event were encouraged to post tweets during the concert. Only the best “Tweets” were posted on a huge display called a Twitter Jumbotron. The PR team censored the tweets, posting only the positive ones. In their competition with other concert attendees to get their tweets displayed, the comments needed to be super positive.

Online Buzz: These tweets were not only getting posted on a Jumbotron. The tweets were reaching a much broader audience than just those who attended the concert. The tweets went to Twitter and circulated on the internet. Each person who tweeted a comment was essentially sending it out to their followers on twitter. It created quite an online buzz.

Future Ticket & CD Sales: Fans who weren’t there could watch the concert events unfold through twitter and it probably made them wish they were there. This sold more tickets and CD.

Elementary teacher sexually abused students

Posted by prettysleepy on March 21, 2015 in Columbus, OH, News, Westerville with Comments closed |

Delaware County Sheriff’s Deputies have arrested Elementary school teacher Mathew Rausenberg for sexually abuse that occurred in 2006 and 2010. At the time, the two girls at Arrowhead Elementary School were age 8 and 10. The Olentangy Locoal School District is in Central Ohio.

The now-16-year-old who recently came forward said Rausenberg sexually abused her over four years, starting in 2006 when she was in the second grade.

She says as she read, he would:  “… Rub on her body … Unzip his pants and expose himself.”   She said he would also   “… Lift up her shirt and put his hands down her pants …”

The girl claims this happened multiple times and continued into 5th grade. She told detectives during one of these incidents, she remembers Rausenberg turning on a camera positioned near his desk that was pointing at them while he sexually abused her. She says one time at the end of the day, she ran into his room, took the camera and wrote him a note saying she’d report him to police if it continued.

She continues that the next day she discovered Rausenberg had “ransacked her locker and book bag.”   She goes on to say he went to the high school her sister attended, drove her home and demanded to be let in so he could search for the video camera.

Now investigators will most likely interview past students of Rausenberg. He’s being charged with rape and gross sexual imposition.

Past incidents involving Rausenberg:

2 years ago, the teacher was disciplined after a parent complained her young daughter rubbed Rausenberg’s shoulders and sat on his lap.

Another parent reported similar concerns six years ago, but the school seemed confident Rausenberg wasn’t out of line.
