I don’t. I’ve seen people in the fandom posting about it but haven’t seen the source. I’m reluctant to go on to her Facebook. As much as I dislike her I don’t want to invade her privacy.

Wallis Simpson Cocktail Dress
This cocktail dress was made in 1958 by Yves Saint Laurent for the house of Christian Dior. Christian Dior was a favourite of Wallis Simpson and at sixty two years old, she chose this dress, which takes it’s influence from the 1860’s style.
If any of you could please share the videos concerning Brazil I have posted below. The mass media is not reporting on any of this, today radio stations’ signals were cut and replaced with the narration of soccer games simply because they were reporting on police brutality who locked protesters inside a park with children and women inside, gassed them and shot rubber bullets.
No, this is not what my blog is about, but if Catherine’s hair can get 25 notes, I’m sure that the fight for Brazil’s democracy deserves too.
The brazilian media is being censured. Websites that express the true situation by people who have been victims of police brutality are being taken down. The government is refusing to acknowledge any of this, and our president has not even made a statement about the situation. The Brazil media is reporting that the protesters are vandals and bandits.
What is it that Brazil is protesting for, you may ask?
- We want the end of rampant corruption that affects every single system in the country
- We want the end of police brutality
- We want better conditions in public transportation, public hospitals and schools
- We want the government to listen to its people, and not repress peaceful manifestations of democracy
- We want justice for those who were hurt by police brutality in what started as a peaceful manifestation against the raising of the prices of what may be one of the worst public transportation systems in the world
- We want some of the funds that have been used for the World Cup (including the building of the most expensive arena ever to host a world cup - costing 1.2 billion) to be used for necessary things such as fighting hunger and poverty
- We want our media not to be censured and to expose the reality of the country
Does that sound absurd to you?
We need the world to listen, and the internet is our only way. The only way we can change things is if we get the world to speak up and pressure the brazilian government into action - and that’s why we need your help. Please, please, please help us.
- Please help us #changebrazil
- What’s really happening in Brazil
- Police forces attack Brazilian protesters
People are using the hashtag #changebrazil on social networking. We just need the mass media to pickup on this.
If what it takes for you to share is for me to promo you, message me. I don’t care. My country needs your help, and I would seriously appreciate it if you could do this.

My hotel doesn’t have wifi but I streamed it on my phone. I don’t watch that show. I always kind of think those ghost hunting shows are fake because they always find something really dramatic. Like I’m not saying I don’t believe in ghosts just that I don’t believe in reality TV.
Isn’t it a little sketchy that you have a 100 year old house that dozens of people have lived in and the only one with any level of fame just happens to be the one who’s haunting it? Wallis and Win weren’t even in Pensacola that long; if she was haunting the place she was abused at she’d probably be in San Diego where the marriage really broke down. Also all the ghost talk of whatever they were recording was complete gibberish and no way anyone would have heard anything without the ghost hunters helpfully “interpreting” it. Not to mention they said Edward VIII left his wife for Wallis so these aren’t very good historians.
And looking at that house as a big fan of Victorian homes it looks to me like its been expanded on and renovated extensively over the decades so who knows how much if the house Wallis ever lived in or how much the layout had changed.
I do wish they’d explored more into the significance of the money counter though. Win was so sketchy I’ve always wondered if he had some kind of side business. Of course that’s assuming they weren’t bullshitting about it being a tool for organized crime. Probably was used by some old lady to count money from the church bake sale.
