(109) My Historic Visit to the Supreme Court
Friday, June 26, 2015

For some reason, I have never been really good at sharing my feelings (cough, Montana). Most of the time, I think my feelings are too much or too little and usually not appropriate. However, since last Friday, my feelings have been fighting to get out.

On Thursday of last week, I realized two things: one, the Supreme Court would most likely rule on gay marriage (either Friday or Monday), and two, regardless of how they ruled, it would be an historic day.

6:30 a.m.
My alarm goes off. I have a massive hangover. I blame my sister and the bartender, who had a heavy hand the night before. 

6:45 a.m.
Still in bed. Should I get up?

6:50 a.m.
I have an undeniable urge to get up - today will be the day. I pop some Advil and stuff some dry crackers in my mouth and jump in the shower. Everything hurts.

7:00 a.m.
It’s time to go. I found my rainbow flag lapel pin that I secretly bought when I was 18 (17 years ago) and sometimes secretly kept in my pocket. This pin reminds me of so much. I remember when traveling, I used to seek out the brightly colored rainbows for safety. I knew that, if I saw that symbol on a business or bar, not only I, but everyone was welcome. I wore this pin during my first Gay Senate Alliance meeting with Senator Kennedy. (Cameras were not allowed. Some people wanted it to be a secret.)

7:10 a.m.
I decided to walk to the Supreme Court. It is a beautiful walk. Per Facebook, I know one of my friends is also going to the Supreme Court. Apparently, he knows of a line that would let you actually into the Supreme Court. I think to myself that no such line exists and it’s probably the tour line or a 3-minute line to quickly view the courtroom.

7:20 a.m.
I see my friend standing in line. There are a lot of people in this line. Different people. Many different people. The rainbow flag is represented well here.

7:50 a.m.
The line is not growing. Weird. Maybe today is not the day.

7:52 a.m.
A stranger offers everyone in line a small doughnut coated in white powder. My stomach yearns for this doughnut but my brain is playing out the scene in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie when they feed the evil mutants (Tokka and Razar) tranquilizers with white powdered doughnuts. I say, "No thanks."

8:30 a.m.
Why did I not grab more crackers?

9:00 a.m.
The lesbians behind us are getting impatient. They warn everyone in line that people are going to try to cut. “We have done this before and people will cut. Do not let it happen.” I try not to make eye contact.   

9:20 a.m.
The line is moving! This is a thing!

9:30 a.m.
The line stops moving. There are about 16 people ahead of us. Damn! We are left standing in front of the media. I secretly wish I was smart enough to be a reporter. How cool would it be to report outside of the Supreme Court? Telling the world how the United States is navigating constantly changing times.

9:40 a.m.
This is not looking good. But I realize where I am, right in front of the Supreme Court. It doesn’t matter if they rule on gay marriage or not today because it is awesome just being here, feeling the warmth of the crowd reflecting from this large stone building. And the energy is starting to pick up.

9:45 a.m.
A security officer is walking down the tall steps of the court and he has a handful of green tickets. Things move fast. He hands me a ticket. I think to myself, "Willy Wonka with his golden ticket!" I look back at the growing crowd, they seem so far away.

They quickly rush about 10 of us through a magnetometer.  They ask us to store our cell phones, so my friend rents a locker for a quarter, and we quickly lock up our cell phones.

9:46 a.m.
Ugh! I wish I would have texted my boyfriend to let him know I was inside.

9:47 a.m.
Another security checkpoint, another magnetometer. A security officer wands me, then speaks:

Him: “Sir, your pin.”

Me:  “Oh, should I take it off?”

Him: “Yes, you can put it in your pocket.” I put the pin back into my pocket, a place it’s familiar with.

Him: “Do you plan to protest?”

Me:  “No, of course not.”

Him: “Good, because any outburst at all will warrant an arrest.”

Me: “Okay.” (I am the opposite of a protester. I get acid reflux just from crossing the street when I’m not supposed to.)

9:50 a.m.
My friend and I are literally feet away from going inside the courtroom. I start thinking about everything that can go wrong. I came up with EVERYTHING. Everything could go wrong. EVERYTHING. I’m scared they will start without us.

9:51 a.m.
We get in! The room was silent and packed. It’s a small room about the size of a small church from home in Hot Springs, Montana. There are just a few seats left. We are escorted to two chairs on the right side of the middle of the room. I can see everything. I can see the bench and everyone in the room. There was so much silent energy in the room it felt like it could burst. I remember one of my bosses telling me to “soak it all in” so I decide to look up to the ceiling to study the detail of the flowers.

9:55 a.m.
A buzzer goes off. My friend tells me it means the Justices are putting on their robes. I immediately imagine each judge standing “off stage” with their arms up in the air and their staff throwing robes on over their heads.

10:00 a.m.
We hear the sharp knock of a gavel and everyone in the room rocketed from their seats and stood in straightness looking at the bench. "The Honorable, the Chief Justice and the Associate Justices of the Supreme Court of the United States. Oyez! Oyez! Oyez! All persons having business before the Honorable, the Supreme Court of the United States, are admonished to draw near and give their attention, for the Court is now sitting. God save the United States and this Honorable Court!"

It’s like I’m watching a movie that desperately needs a foreshadowing soundtrack.

All the justices enter at the same time like magic from behind three curtained off entrances. We sit. Chief Justice Roberts reads the docket number and title “Obergefell v. Hodges” This is it! He says Justice Kennedy will read the majority opinion. 

Justices Thomas and Scalia rock back in their chairs.  I can barely see their faces. I wonder why they don't seem to care. Did we lose? 

I have no idea whose side Kennedy is on. I think he is on ours, but I’m not sure. No one in the room is making any movement or noise, so I cannot tell.

He is reading, and I still have no idea. Then we all hear “Held: The Fourteenth Amendment requires a State to license a marriage between two people of the same sex and to recognize a marriage between two people of the same sex when their marriage was lawfully licensed and performed out-of-State.”

The room was still silent but tears were flowing and people were carefully touching each other. I can feel my rainbow flag pin inside my pocket.

I immediately realize that I am in this glowing courtroom witnessing something that will shape the face of this young country. I often think of times in history I wish I could have witnessed (laying the corner stone of the Capitol, Emancipation proclamation, dinosaurs) - and here I am.

Something that, at one time, I did not understand and wished (prayed really) away was being presented as now okay, you are American, you are part of our history. You deserve to be married.

I floated on every word that Justice Kennedy spoke.

Then Chief Justice Roberts began to read the descent. I prepared for the worst. But as he spoke, I appreciated what he had to say. I felt he was saying so much more than the words he was speaking. I tried to read in-between the lines. I think he wanted this to happen, this way.

10:30 a.m. (I think, I miss my phone with the clock)
It’s done. We won! They won! Everyone won!

Justice Scalia said “No one go anywhere.” Everyone laughed. It was the first noise made in the courtroom. He gave the majority opinion on sentencing guidelines. I didn’t understand and it sounded like the justices didn’t understand either.

Chief Justice Roberts then said the remaining cases would be read on Monday. They exited as quickly as they entered.

10:45 a.m.
My friend and I are one of the last people to leave the room. I wanted to soak it all in and we are seated that way anyway. Some people in the front of the room started whispering and a security officer quickly told them to silence.

We leave the room and walk into the hallway full of columns. The only people left are collecting their belongings (cell phones) from the various locker cubby holes. Many people are hugging.  

Then, we exit from the Grand Entrance. Hundreds of people are cheering. And for a few brief seconds, I allowed that warm, all-embracing radiance of the crowd to sweep me away.  Then, reality intrudes.  I feel guilty.  So many others over so many years have deserved this moment more than me.  I wonder if I’m stealing it from them.  But then I realize that I think—I’m a witness to history, not history itself.  And I can share my experience.  No, I feel responsible for showing them. I fumble to get out my cell phone to record the cheers for everyone to hear, the living, the dead, the ones I will never know about. They did this. They all did this. I descend into the crowd.  And I quickly became part of the rainbow.

(108) Local MP Intervenes in Pensioner’s Battle with Bedford Estates

June 19, 2016 - After several weeks of intensive campaigning to help 88-year-old Alzheimer’s Patient, Frances Devereux remain in her 72 Ridgmount dwelling, Bedford Estates have finally provided an offer of a tenancy to the senior citizen.

This major breakthrough came only after the Cafferata family sought the intervention of recently elected Member of Parliament of Holburn & St. Pancras, Sir Keir Starmer, QC, MP. Further to enquiries made by Starmer to the Steward of Bedford Estates, Mark de Rivas, Francis received an offer of tenancy from Bedford Estates.

The offer of tenancy to Ms. Devereux is an outcome that Frances is delighted about. Though she is highly concerned the offer of tenancy made no mention of the continued occupation of John Giltrap, another one of Mrs. Cafferata's lifelong friends who also lives at the dwelling. It's quite baffling for the family as John, was also mentioned in the petition to successor the lease.

Mr. Giltrap is a pensioner and, therefore, does not have the financial means to find alternate accommodation. Like Francis, the Cafferata children do not want to see him ousted from the place he has known as home for so many years and made a ward of the Camden Council.

Therefore, despite the offer of tenancy to Ms. Devereux, the Cafferatas are not letting up and plan to continue the campaign against Bedford Estates until certain details of the tenancy are clarified and an offer of tenancy is also made to John Giltrap.

Meanwhile, the story received even greater media attention when Jean Mackenzie from BBC London News recently interviewed Frances and John about their plight.

Also public support still remains strong, with a significant number of comments generated daily from the “Stop the Duke” website.
Alicja Z said: “Ms. Devereux is clearly vulnerable and it is despicable that she should be evicted from a place where she has lived with her lifelong friend for so long”.

Another supporter of the campaign, Becky M said: “Do you not have a Mother? Please be fair!”

(106) Frances Devereux, 88, Alzheimer’s Patient, has over 50,000 Twitter Followers in battle over eviction with Bedford Estates.

Alzheimer's Sufferer Anxious over her Fate of her Dwelling while Bedford Estates are Mum on the Issue

June 1, 2015 - The uncertainty of whether or not she will get to stay in her home is causing a lot of anxiety for Alzheimer's sufferer Francis Devereux.

The 88-year-old was issued an eviction notice by Bedford Estates in March and has been worried ever since. Ms. Devereux has been living at 72 Ridgmount Gardens for the past 30 years with her lifelong friend and primary tenant -Sylvia Cafferata.

Mrs. Cafferata died earlier this year and several attempts have been made on Francis' behalf by the Cafferata siblings to retain the lease. However, Bedford Estates have not exactly been receptive about the matter. They turned down a petition by the siblings to retain the lease, and to date the company has not acknowledged a subsequent letter that was sent to them.

In an interesting twist, Bedford Estates recently announced the retirement of Steward - Mark de Rivas- on May 26, 2015. It is not yet known who will assume the new role but it is hoped that the new Steward will exercise some leniency with the matter.

Francis' story has sparked a lot of interest from the public. A Twitter page launched by - (a website created to gain supporters for Francis) has accumulated more than 50k followers and a designated YouTube video with details of the story has amassed more than 1,000 views. Several media sources have also expressed interest in providing coverage of the story including the BBC, Daily Mail and The Independent.

Meanwhile, supporters have been expressing their outrage about the situation. Tora said: "We need to have a lot more compassion for the elderly. It's unfair to evict an elderly lady from her home over 30 years. One day it'll be your turn. Please reconsider Duke of Bedford."

Another supporter, William C., commented: "Although I have some sympathy with the wish by the Duke to obtain a commercial rent for his property it sounds disappointing that this elderly and infirm lady should be evicted under such circumstances. With the best will in the world it is probably unlikely that she will need to have use of the property for a great deal of time and on that basis it might be hoped that a little more forbearance could be exercised."

No one should have to worry about losing the place they have called home for more than 30 years, especially if they are elderly and dealing with a horrible illness as Alzheimer's.

(105) Was Sylvia Cafferata, 87, placed on “Death Watch” list by Bedford Estates?

May 22, 2015 - Eighty-eight year-old Alzheimer's patient, Francis Devereux, will have to wait a little longer to know if she will be able to remain at her 72 Ridgmount Gardens residence.

The latest developments in this heart rending story is that Bedford Estates, has turned down a recent petition to stop the eviction of Ms. Devereux. The Cafferata siblings are disappointed that the company did not make an attempt to address important concerns raised in the petition such as was the owner, Sylvia Cafferata, 87, placed on a “Death Watch” list, also why did “Bedford Estates” send threatening notices only six weeks after Mrs. Cafferata's death and issue a threatening eviction notice on March 11th when the rent and portage were already paid until the 24th.

Since Bedford Estates continue to go over old instead of considering the options presented to them, the Cafferata siblings have resolved that the only options acceptable to the family moving forward is to Successor the Lease, Enter Mediation or for the company to Institute Proceedings. All this was outlined in a follow up letter to Bedford Estates. However, while the company considers these options, plans are afoot to implement a number of plans for the “STOP THE DUKE” campaign designed to garner exposure and support for Ms. Devereux's plight. Some of the plans already instituted are:

-Radio ads at over 50 radio stations with 1 million plus listeners around the world.

-Placement of a full page advertisement in Diva Magazine in June

-Procurement of 200,000 digital advertising impressions for the Diva Website

-Finalising terms of agreement for a solicitor to represent Ms Devereux

Francis' story is also set to get wider coverage following enquiries from Independent Television News (ITN) to feature the story. However, amidst the chaos Ms. Devereux's health is suffering and it is hoped that the situation will be resolved as soon as possible.

(104) Lost Legacy Press Releases Powerful New Memoir, The Demons of Plainville: A Survivor's Story of Storms and Reconstruction by Daniel R. Mathews

Flagstaff, AZ – Lost Legacy Press releases an extraordinarily powerful memoir, The Demons of Plainville: A Survivor’s Story of Storms and Reconstruction by Daniel R. Mathews. This is an inspiring true story of a boy who overcame his past. As a first-person autobiographical narrative, Daniel shares his childhood, beginning with one of his earliest memories of abuse, both verbal and physical, at age eight at the hands of his addicted, mentally ill mother. This poignant and incredibly honest memoir has received rave reviews by readers and book reviewers.

“The Demons of Plainville is a saga replete with struggle, 'demons', hard truths and harder realizations that lead to real change - and the latter is at the heart of any confrontation with demons, but particularly the lives presented in The Demons of Plainville. The Demons of Plainville covers many kinds of demons, from childhood challenges to coming of age, adult approaches to life, and storms of emerging sexuality and friendships that evolve against the rejection of both mother and father. From flying planes to homosexuality and recovering from family demons, The Demons of Plainville isn't about falling to earth; it's about the process of learning to soar with whatever life hands out. This memoir charts the process and key moments that move closer towards the light rather than succumbing to the forces that create demons.” --D. Donovan, Senior eBook Reviewer, Midwest Book Review 

“Daniel’s frank, no-nonsense, tell-it-like-it-is style of writing is engaging. He is a true survivor and wants to genuinely offer hope to children and adults who have been neglected or abused; reminding them that a better life is possible.” --Gisela Dixon, Readers’ Favorite

An avid reader of science fiction, horror, and fantasy, Daniel is a novelist and nonfiction writer whose books tend to feature LGBT youth, braving danger with honor and dignity, including his personal memoir, The Demons of Plainville, and debut horror novel, The Unseen Kingdom.

For the past two decades, Daniel has worked as a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certified ground instructor, part-time meteorologist, and a member of the web development and Internet technical support community. He currently lives in Flagstaff, Arizona.

The Demons of Plainville: A Survivor’s Story of Storms and Reconstruction is available for sale now at Amazon and Barnes & Noble in Paperback, Hardcover, and Kindle formats.

(103) Pastor Rubs Up Sex Site Owner the Wrong Way: Provokes a Campaign to Grab His Beloved ‘Missionary Position’ by the Balls!

UK-based Nigerian Pastor Olugbenga Oladejo claims of Missionary Position Only or you will go to Hell faces opposition from this cheeky crowdfund campaign; ‘Say No to Missionary Position’ or your life will be hell and asks for your support on Indiegogo.

How would you feel if I were to tell you that you may have unwittingly signed up to spend an eternity in hell? Well that is, if the video testimonials from the head of Complete In Christ Church (CICC), Pastor Olugbenga Oladejo are to be believed. He warns that any married couple that has sex in any other position but the missionary position will not inherit the kingdom of God. Doggie style? Hell! Bondage? Hell! Masturbation? Basically if you have performed any sexual act outside of the missionary position then it’s off to the fiery pits of hell with you!

One person Pastor Oladejo’s damning claims certainly rubbed up the wrong way is Ciara Cox, owner of adult toy website Romp ‘n’ Roar, who herself is on a mission to ramp up bedroom antics across the nation.

“I’m in the business of administering pleasure” she said, “the thought that I could be aiding in eternal damnation is ludicrous, sex is a basic human need and sadly this is just another outlandish view, about what sex should and shouldn’t be, which only adds to the sex crisis we are currently facing.”

A rebel by nature with a love for hardcore action has led Ciara Cox to hit back against Oladejo’s warnings by launching her very own crowdfund campaign. She is reaching out for people to turn the tables by indulging in any sex position but missionary with ‘Say no to Missionary Position Infestation.’ #lessswagmoreshag

With the funds raised from her campaign on Indiegogo, she plans on creating an educational sex channel ‘The Buck Bible’ in homage to Pastor Oladejo.

Ciara Cox argues that “the reality is that apart from Bonobo Chimpanzees, we are the only species who have sex face to face and that is not the natural way.”

Missionary Position was introduced by missionaries to inhabitants of the old European empires as a "respectable" position. Yet according to a great deal of research, only 25 percent of women reach orgasm in the missionary position no matter what size the man’s penis nor how vigorous or prolonged the intercourse.

“In missionary position, the man is rubbing away from the G-spot, while she is struggling to get her G-spot stimulated, this causes sexual frustration for the both male and female” Ciara Cox said. “This is only one of many sexual problems prevalent in today’s society.”

It’s true, people are having less sex than ever before and sexual problems are rife. Around half of women and four out of ten men reported a recent sexual problem, with lack of interest being the most common. Young people are not exempt from experiencing sexual problems either. One in ten women aged 16-24 say they lack enjoyment in sex and one in ten young men say they lack interest.

Though amidst this sex crisis, change is on the horizon. The success of Fifty Shades opened a Pandora’s Box of curiosity into edgier sexual practices, but encouraging partners to talk frankly about sex is still a grey area.

“I’m convinced that the majority of people would like to be friskier between the sheets but from fear of going to hell coming across as a total sex freak nymphomaniac daren’t voice it to their partner, they just don’t know where to start.”

Fortunately this is where Ciara Cox can lend her expertise. Through the ‘The Buck Bible’ sexploration channel which she plans to host on YouTube, she will guide people to have truly better sex.

“A couple of secrets I can let you in on is that the biggest part of sex is in the mind, especially true for women.” The sex channel will teach you how to work this to your advantage, also teaching everything from bedroom etiquette to discovering your sexual persona and so much more.

“The solution to a better sex life is taking charge of your sexuality and to master what you are doing in the sac through sexual education and awareness. Communication is key to breaking down sex taboos.”

This is certainly a step in the right direction if we are to get out of our sexual ruts. Sex is of massive importance, more so than people realise, as Dr Laura Berman puts so delicately. "When sex works in a relationship, it's one small part. When it doesn't, it takes on a life of its own, affecting everything," she says. “The threshold for anger is lower and the disconnect can lead to the breakdown of a couple's physical and emotional connection.”

Perhaps the Bloodhound Gang were onto something after all, “You and me baby, ain't nothing but mammals, so let's do it like they do on the Discovery Channel." Perhaps if people had taken heed all those years ago, we may all be living in sexual bliss today!

‘Less Swag More Shag’ slogan tee shirts, underwear, canvas tote bags and sex toys can all be bought in show of support for this superb cause. To find out more about the ‘Say No to Missionary Position’ crowdfunding project visit

(102) Scuba Diving in Playa Del Carmen: Diving with Diversity Diving

(Playa Del Carmen, Mexico) - Diving in Playa Del Carmen offers some amazing scuba diving and snorkeling in a location that is convenient for most holiday travelers. Pristine oceans, exceptional visibility, abundant sea life, and warm water temperatures make for a great place to learn how to scuba dive. Diversity Diving, located in downtown Playa Del Carmen, has always prided themselves on the highest quality education for divers of all skill levels. Specializing in new divers, Diversity’s lead instructor, Cheryl Rottler, has just received a prestigious award from the world’s largest scuba certifying organization.

PADI International has declared Cheryl the Elite Instructor for the year 2014 due to her unrelenting pursuit of perfection when it comes to new divers. “There are so many options for advanced, cave, wreck, and technical diving throughout the area, but I believe that my calling is to teach the new divers; those that are unsure where to begin, have physical limitations, or have some underlying fear of trying diving for the first time.” said Cheryl. Diversity Diving welcomes all divers that want to learn from one of the most experienced instructors in the area and Diversity Diving can provide the perfect learning atmosphere. “Customer service and equality has always been at the core of our values. The objective has never been to be the biggest dive center in the area, only the best” says Cheryl.

The most basic option is the non-certifying Discover Scuba Diving program that allows divers to try scuba diving in a one day curriculum which incorporates some basic theory, a brief pool session, and two fantastic dives in the ocean under the direct supervision of an instructor. Divers can also get their Open Water certification which will allow them to dive anywhere in the world and it can be completed in 3-4 days.

Smoking is one of the deadliest killers in the United States. Now, Medco Marketing, a diversified marketing group, has launched an IndieGoGo campaign to raise funds to help people quit & stop smoking through the use of vaping and e-cigarette products
Smoking is ranked as the fifth-leading cause of death in the United States. Many quit-smoking programs do not work, because they require smokers to give up the act they enjoy: the relaxing motions of smoking. Now, e-cigarettes and vaping products are allowing smokers to substitute a safer alternative for deadly cigarettes. Medco Marketing, a diversified group offering many useful items, has launched an IndieGoGo campaign in order to raise funds for distributing these safer products to a larger audience.

Focusing on bringing the message about the dangers of smoking and the benefits of vaping and e-cigarettes, Medco Marketing is launching an IndieGoGo campaign to fill the gap in marketing and information sharing about these products left by many major retailers. This campaign will allow Medco to set up a online retail store that offers affordable products that will benefit many who want to quit smoking.

Located at [] this company’s mission is to help anyone quit smoking quickly and easily. Although purchase of products is limited to those over the age of 18, anyone can donate toward the campaign to help save a loved one’s life, as well. Currently, products are available at [] while future products will be available at a new website location after fundraising is complete, directly to the customers.

Perks for this campaign include vouchers for deeply discounted products from the current booth and the future website. By making these items affordable for everyone, more people can take advantage of the opportunity to give up smoking for good. Further, the funds raised will be used to create a blog to bring awareness of the benefits of vaping and e-cigarettes. Pledge levels range from $1 to $280.

For more information on benefits at various pledge levels, visit the IndieGoGo page.
