anthony case news roundup – a slow week

Yes, it was a slow news week for those of us interested in the goings-on in the Anthony case.

The Elevator Fall

Although the news media was agog over the fact that Casey Anthony fell in an Orlando Courthouse elevator, other than that, it was a quiet week.

The elevator fall this past week also brought to light some of the Casey Anthony hate mongers, allowing them to discuss what they wished would have happened in that elevator.

Comments left on blogs and news reports with regards to enjoying Casey’s fall were beyond the beyond of ugly.  Some of the comments from people posting on blogs and news reports were excessively repulsive.  Why such vitriol?  What do we learn from this?  Why the hate?  It’s about the death of a little girl.  We hate what was done to Caylee Marie Anthony.  That’s what we hate. No need to spew more ugliness or hatred.

Defense Depositions

Additionally, there were depositions held by the defense.  The prosecution witnesses deposed this week were:

  • Brian Burner – Loaned Casey Anthony a shovel.
  • Debbi Bennett – Cindy Anthony’s co-worker.  This witness told LE that Cindy claimed Casey’s car “smelled like a dead body.”
  • J.P. Chatt – a former friend of Casey’s.  Associated with Amy Huizenga and Ricardo Morales.
  • Nate Leiniwicz – Tony Lazzaro’s roommate.
  • Sandra Mellich (Yuri Mellich’s wife) – Assisted in the investigation.

On June 11th, John Allen, OSCO Detective, is scheduled.

What’s to Come

  • This week should bring a ruling on the defense’s motion regarding whether they can keep Casey Anthony’s jail visitor logs secret.
  • There is a status hearing on June 21st.
  • Right around the corner – June 15th, we will mark another anniversary of Caylee Marie Anthony’s death.

Can two years have passed?

Am I dreaming?


a daily dose of inspiration, and then some…

I wanted a perfect ending. Now I’ve learned, the hard way, that some poems don’t rhyme, and some stories don’t have a clear beginning, middle and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what’s going to happen next. – Gilda Radner


my gossamer-dream symphony

To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not, rich; to listen to stars and birds, babes and sages, with open heart; to study hard; to think quietly, act frankly, talk gently, await occasions, hurry never; in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common — this is my symphony. ~William Henry Channing, clergyman, reformer (1810-1884)

I love to dream. I dream in color and often dream of vivid landscapes with remarkable colors.

I am so desirous of being in nature, having nature around me.  Many times the only thing that makes me serenely happy – really happy, is to be surrounded by trees, flowers, and nature.

There are three things (aside from a good camera), that I want in abundance:

  • butterflies,
  • birds, and
  • flowers.

I need to be close to nature, and often go to Butterfly World to get all three of my life’s nature requirements.  (P.S. if ever you plan a trip to South Florida, and you love nature, it’s all there at Butterfly World, in Coconut Creek, Florida.)

Butterflies are literally everywhere you look!  They can be seen in droves and yet they are still elusive so you do have to have some patience and wait for them to stop and suckle a flower.

There is an amazing laboratory at Butterfly World where thousands of butterflies are hatched.

There the butterflies hang from cocoons on display for all to see.  When they are ready to emerge, it takes some time to dry their wings.  Then, when nature says they’re ready, their little feet wiggle free from the larvae and they are ready to fly!

It’s just an amazing sight!  The video I posted delightfully displays the wonder of the butterfly emerging.  It’s a soothing sight – just may give you goosebumps…. It does me.

At Butterfly World, you can literally watch the butterflies coming out of the larvae.  It’s remarkable and educational.  I have photographed some of the Pupae on display at Butterfly World:

Wishing all my friends boundless symphonies, gossamer dreams, and endless happiness.
