Looks like they were going to have a live press conference, then decided the information they were going to give didn't justify a live conference so it's been cancelled.

Blonde,
Yes, I have the tickets already.  My coworker's niece brought them to her during the Christmas holiday so I'm all set. 

It's good for people to know that they will not mail tickets.  Thanks for mentioning it.


kkthy

I am so jealous.  This is one speaking engagement that breaks my heart that I am unable to attend.  I believe that Beth's personal testimony in regards to how she has prevailed throughout the past five years of H--- ... will inspire others ... will change lives.

Hopefully a transcript ... a video will emerge.

Imagine

Beth Holloway - In Person and In Her Own Words


When her daughter went missing in Aruba, her life changed forever.  How does one muster the courage to persevere in the face of sheer adversity?  Do we all have the capacity to overcome tragedy?  How does one keep going?  You will be uplifed by the remarkable story of Beth Holloway.  How does she stay strong.  Imagine being able to apply her philosophies of courage, dedication, faith and strength to your own life.

I Never Ask Him Why

Loving Natalee - Beth Holloway

Pages 100
: I rise and make my way up the hillside to the next cross and the next one and the next, repeating my prayers.

I am looking to the sky, which is growing bluer as dawn breaks, and talking to God.  And as I reach the fifth cross, the answer to these prayers comes.  Complete peace blankets me, and I am still.  It's a familiar feeling, yet unknown to me like this before now.  It comes in total stillness.  Silence. And in this instant I know that Natalee is with God.

I understand that from the moment she got into Deepak Kalpoe's car her heavenly Father wrapped His loving arms around her and cared for her through whatever ordeal she encountered that night.  I don't know if she is alive or not, but I know that He is with her.

He entrusted me with her care for eighteen years.  Now I must trust Him to care for her.  So I never ask Him why.  Why Natalee?  Why me?  I don't ask.  To do that undermines faith.  Instead, I form an "acceptance trust" with Him there on the windy hillside.  God never questioned me when she was in my care.  I must not question Him.  I realize that He is as proud of her as I am.

Thoughts of Natalee's personal relationship with God comes to me.  He knows her very well.  And she knows Him.


Mom is Right; God is Good

Loving Natalee - Beth Holloway

Page 103
: I think about what just happened, pondering the human spirit.  Apparently it can withstand a lot more than I every dreamed possible.  Mom is right; God is good.  All my life I've heard people of many faiths talk about "taking it to the cross and turning it over to the Lord" or just simply "turning it over.  Not the work that has to be done.  Just the burden.  I cast it upon Him so that I may be sustained.  And I am renewed, resilient.  Thankful for however long this resurgence in energy will carry me.  I will pick up one foot and put it down.  Then the other one will follow.  I will breathe.  There is much to be done.

Magnitude-7.1 quake shakes southern Chile

By EVA VERGARA

Associated Press

J. Bell

Map locates where a 7.1 magnitude earthquake has struck near Temuco, Chile

A magnitude-7.1 earthquake shook southern Chile on Sunday, prompting tens of thousands to flee the coast for higher ground amid fears it could generate a tsunami like the one that ravaged the area last year.

There were no reports of deaths or damage, and Vicente Nunez, head of the National Emergency Office, said no tsunami alert was issued.

"There has been no harm to people, no harm to property," Nunez said. "We will continue monitoring."

I'm thinking this is more than likely what that's about.  Didn't see anything about an air "ambulance" though.  Maybe it was just added in the "rumor".

Parents of missing Chesterfield woman skeptical that jawbone found in Aruba is their daughter's

By MARK BOWES
Published: January 04, 2011

The parents of a Chesterfield County woman who disappeared 12 years ago while on a Caribbean cruise with family are doubtful that a jawbone recently discovered on an Aruba beach belonged to their daughter.

But just to make sure, Iva and Ron Bradley have provided the FBI with Amy Lynn Bradley's dental records. The Bradleys still believe that their daughter was abducted by someone aboard the ship during the family's vacation in March 1998. They also adamantly believe that Amy is still alive and being held captive.

"We have provided Amy's dental records because we follow every single lead of any size or nature," Iva Bradley said Monday in a brief telephone interview. "We're just doing what parents would do in following up and providing records. But we don't believe that's Amy's jawbone."

In late November, law-enforcement authorities determined through forensic testing that the jawbone did not belong to Alabama teenager Natalee Holloway, who disappeared in 2005 during a senior class trip to Aruba.

The piece of jawbone, which contained a wisdom tooth and likely was from a Caucasian, was found by an American tourist near the Phoenix Hotel, a resort on the western side of the island. It had washed up on the beach.

The Bradleys have been led to believe that the bone "is very, very, very old," Iva Bradley said.

"Aruba has over 200 archeological sites, and they've got all of their graves above ground," she added.

Amy Bradley was 23 when she disappeared from the cruise ship Rhapsody of the Seas early on March 24, 1998, as the ship docked at the Dutch island of Curacao after a short overnight run from Aruba.

The Bradleys believe that their daughter is still alive based on several reported sightings of their daughter over the years. The last was on March 1, 2005, when a woman reported she saw Amy in a Barbados restaurant restroom. "She was actually able to tell a lady in a restroom her name and where she was from," Iva Bradley said.

"For people that don't have any idea what it's like to be in a Third World country, and under (someone else's) control due to fear, it's not so easy just to go to a phone," Iva Bradley said. "We feel like she's either in human trafficking, or some type of gun trafficking, or the two involved."

The Visit Aruba website lists 10 people who have vanished while staying or vacationing in the Caribbean in the past 15 years.

General Manager Rob Smith of Aruba Raddison to hock shirts


After a recent brainstorming session, General Manager of
Radisson in Aruba decides to sell shirts and things to make
up for lost income, due to lost revenue from letting the murderers
go free in the Natalee Holloway case.


"Hey, a brother got to do what he got to do to keep the lights going, right?"
said Smith.




Two beautiful shirts! One comes with snap on tie, great for business, $7. The other shirt, make you "tardy for the party?" Only 5 bucks!




Hennie Quandt sell you big red beer koozie for your Balashi, $2.50.




Donny Oduber has nice 12 piece dinnerware set. $10 takes it home.




Bunella Lacle has funny sex toy in pink bag surprise! You like for $9.50? Best 9.50 you ever spent.




Flacco Kooyman says you will love this blueberry scented bath candle for paltry $4.25.






Rona Coster sell you one session of hot oil bath massage at her house. Only $15!
Everybody on Aruba has ridden the 'Rona Coster Ride' at least two times. Why else
you think Rob Smith smiling like this? Close your eyes and live the dream, esey.



Please come by and support the Aruba Radisson soon! Rob Smith says the added value is sure to spark renewed interest in turd ball island. "I mean, who wouldn't come for a
nice shirt or a spiffy beer koozie?" says Rob. Ah, what a nice way to enjoy a stay on
Aruba. It just keeps getting better all the time.

Yeah, well................ I doubt it's Amy's jawbone, too. The circumstances around the big delay, build up, and then poof announcement have that all too familiar stench of "Aruba on Natalee" surrounding it. JMO.

Don't know if any of you read the blog Women in Crime Ink. Some good posts at times. This one from Stacy Dittrich, predicting what will happen in 2011.

snipped:

Joran van der Sloot


Joran’s reign of terror will end abruptly this year when he is murdered under an air of mystery inside his cell at Castro Castro prison. The last person to see Joran alive will be his cell mate, Rico, after giving Joran a full-body massage and pedicure. After the autopsy reveals that Joran had stage 4 anal cancer, officials will close the death investigation because they determined he would’ve died anyway. His body will be donated to the Peruvian Center for Maniacal Mass Murder Studies.

Giants and Jets looking to buy Italian soccer team AS Roma: report

Are you ready for some football?

Giants owners Steve Tisch and John Mara have teamed up with Jets owner Woody Johnson and are kicking around a plan to buy a controlling stake in Italian soccer team AS Roma.

The trio reportedly made an offer recently to buy the beleaguered team nearly three years after George Soros and New York lawyer Joe Tacopina put in an unsuccessful bid to buy the club, the Italian newspaper Il Manifesto reported today.

The newspaper reported that the dollar amount has not been made public as both sides try to hammer out a deal.

The Giants and Jets are co-owners of the New Meadowlands Stadium, which opened last year, and both teams worked together last year to bring Super Bowl XLVIII to the stadium in 2014.

However, a Jets source told The Post that Johnson is not involved in an offer and had no idea if there was involvement from the Giants.

An AS Roma spokesman did not immediately return a call seeking comment.

One of Italy's most popular teams, Roma is currently in fifth place in the 20-team Serie A standings and features former Italy striker Francesco Totti and Brazilian forward Adriano.

In 2009, Forbes magazine estimated the value of the team at $308 million.

AS Roma, which was founded in 1927, has won the Serie A title three times in its history, most recently in 2001.

Italian group Italpetroli holds a controlling stake in AS Roma, but creditor UniCredit de facto controls the group.

Russian media had reported in September that LUKOIL Vice President Leonid Fedun was interested in purchasing a controlling stake, but the company had no comment at the time.

Italian pharmaceutical magnate Francesco Angelini never put forward concrete plans for a takeover bid after saying he wanted to buy a majority stake in the club.

The club -- known in Italy simply as Roma -- has been seeking an outside buyer since last summer.

Unlike England's Premier League, where American ownership of major teams has become common, Italy's pro squads are owned by Italians, so the purchase by Tisch, Mara and Johnson would be the first of its kind.

The team plays its games at the Olympic Stadium, opened in 1930 and rehabbed for the 1990 World Cup, and like the Jets and Giants, shares the 73,000-seat venue with city rivals SS Lazio.

AS Roma club officials have said that they are interested in building a stadium and that new owners would have to commit to such a plan should a takeover occur.

In October, the Boston Red Sox, owned by by New England Sports Ventures, purchased English club Liverpool for $476 million -- the latest move by an American company to buy a soccer team in Europe.

I stand with the girl, Natalee Holloway.

"I can look back over the past 10 years and there were no steps wasted, and there are no regrets,'' she said. "I did all I knew to do and I think that gives me greater peace now." "I've lived every parent's worst nightmare and I'm the parent that nobody wants to be," she said.

I had read the headlines and I had remembered that Tacopina was interested in buying a team and I went on to read and lo and behold that was the team.  Nice way to start the new year.  I guess he won't be doing this    Monkey Devil!
