yuri in top 3 and other easter tidings

by Andrea O'Connell
I just noticed that yesterday Yuri made the TOP 3 for the America’s Most Wanted All Star Award!!  We have until May 8th (the last day of voting) to ensure Yuri wins and takes the top prize!  Don’t forget to vote everyday!

If Yuri wins, and I think he will, what a wonderful message we will send about our collective appreciation of the work he did, and continues to do, on behalf of Caylee Anthony.

If you haven’t yet voted today, here’s the link:  http://www.amw.com/allstar/2011/nominee-detail.cfm?id=9324

Will Monday bring Judge Perry’s expected rulings?

The Honorable Judge Perry is undoubtedly putting a lot of careful thought into the remaining Frye rulings in the State v. Casey Anthony case.  We recently heard the stain in the trunk of Casey Anthony’s car is admissible, and we’re waiting for a ruling on the chloroform levels, the plant growth, the hair banding, the cadaver dog results, and the odor test to verify the presence of decomposition.  We are likely to hear these rulings tomorrow.

In the meantime, Jose Baez is ramping up his TV appearances.  He will appear on the In Session program multiple times in the coming days – what the airing-schedule of the In Session program is, is unknown to me at this time.

Easter Tidings…..

Easter’s Eve was festive at my house!  We celebrated my youngest brother’s birthday, my other brother drove in from Orlando, and we ate and ate and ate!  My spaghetti sauce was a hit!

We colored eggs for Easter; of course I had to get my camera out for THAT occasion!  Here are a couple of our Easter egg coloring pics…

    Andrea, it looks like you had a fun Easter holiday. It was good to read Yuri is in the top three. We want him #1. Can hardly wait to see the rest of Judge Perry’s decisions tomorrow. I am afraid I ate too much Easter goodies, and I am now feeling stuffed. Oh well, back to the gym.

      Hey Rob, Yes, I sure did have a lovely Easter – lot’s of family around, and I have the next two days off, and that makes it really wonderful! Glad you had a nice day, too.
      I’m very anxious to know how the Judge is going to rule, too! Can hardly wait. I think he’ll allow it all in, I really do. 🙂

      Hi Knight owl…. I used to love the egg coloring too! That’s my niece, she’s 5 and was totally immersed in the egg coloring. I’m so glad you’re remembering to vote for Yuri! 🙂

      Oh my! I wasn’t able to see that… The only think I saw was the rankings on the right of the page – with the top three from the day before. Today, I see Yuri on the top of the three, but I don’t know if that’s ranking, or a random listing of the top three contenders…. Hmmmm, We’ll have to investigate this one! LOL!

    Andrea just a thought, but maybe we should write down the top 3 from today and see if they are the same tomorrow. I thought yesterdays were different than the 2 from today. The only one I think stayed is Yuri. 🙂 Again I did say I think, lol.

    Andrea, Your Niece is precious, thanks for sharing those Pictures. The Easter Eggs sure turned out pretty.
    We also colored Eggs, they turned out kind of wild
    tie dyed, my favorite 🙂
    I also voted for Yuri today, he deserves it.
    Like All of You I am waiting to hear Judge Perry”s Rulings on the Rest of the Motions. I would think they All will come in except maybe the Air Samples, we just have to wait a little longer. The Air Samples although new might come in.
    DNA used to be new at one time look how many Crimes were solved since then using DNA. There is a first time for everything.

      Thank you, Hilde… she’s as sweet on the inside as she is on the outside, too. Oh, I’m with you… love tie-died. Ours didn’t come out that way, but some were half and half colors.

      And you are right about the DNA aspect …. and it was Jeff Ashton’s case that introduced DNA for the first time. Wouldn’t it be great for him if he also gets Dr. Vass’s technology in, too? I think if would be awesome….

      Thanks for voting for Yuri, too!

    I’m copying this from Hinky’s. apparentley Yuri is at No. 8!!!!!

    Many of us view Yuri Melich as a hero in the Caylee Anthony case.

    Please remember to vote for him in the America’s Most Wanted (AMW) – All Stars contest. At this time, 11 a.m., CDT, Yuri is in the # 8 position. Oh, no! He’s been in the #1 spot several times.

    Vote for Yuri Melich ♥

      Hi Bees, That’s not the case. He was voted as a finalist on the 8th week. He is in the top 3 right now. If you look at the right side of the website, you’ll see his name! No worries, Bee and all… We just have to keep up the daily voting and continue to spread the word…. 🙂

    WOW!
    Sure looks like you and your family had a great Easter weekend celebration!
    Thanks for sharing the pics and the stories with us – I like it when you do that!
    Question: Is that YOU in the pic with the young girl

    As for me…
    Well my family shared in some similar fun –
    I got to hang out and play with my niece and nephews…
    It was nice to take a break from things, and just enjoy the time with everyone…
    My brother got a huge bomb-fire going in the evening, included with that, were marshmallows to roast up…
    OH -YEAH!
    I almost forgot:

    My brother had also put together this really cool, chocolate & fruit fondue.
    He actually bought a home-sized, CHOCOLATE Fountain last year…
    Every now and then, at special occassions, he sets it all up with all sorts of fruits for dipping!
    IT IS SOOOOOO GOOD!
    Like the most SCRUMPTEOUS way to eat chocolate!
    Especially on EASTER Sunday!
    It was fun… For the kids, and the grown-ups alike!

    AMEN to that!

    Anyways….
    I was listening in on more of the Anthony Case interviews today –
    I got through quite a few,
    but the one that stood out for me today, was the interview with Padilla’s associate Tracy McLaughlin.
    In one part of the interview, she mentions a song that Inmate Anthony kept playing while she was at the house with her.
    In fact, she played it repeatedly, and DAILY.

    Anyhow, Tracy goes on to mention that one day, while listening to the song, Cindy happened to be around and listening in, as well. At the end of the song, Cindy remarked, making mention that the song truly represented how things had been for her over the last little while –

    Of course, ‘IA’ immediately stated that it was “HER SONG”!

    I’ve had a listen – I like the song!
    Chris Daughtry actually is featured in the song as well!

    Anyways, it is rather interesting –

    So being that we’re still waiting on HHJP’s rulings, I thought I’d share with you and your readers as a refresher, or as further info to anyone who might have missed it…

    I’ve included the link, and lyrics to the song below:

    The Past – SEVENDUST

    Beneath the water
    that’s falling from my eyes
    lays a soul I’ve left behind
    the edge of sorrow was reached but now I’m fine
    I’ve filled the hole I had inside

    I’ll pray it doesn’t scream my name
    so I light a flame and let it breathe
    the air that kills the shame

    I’m up
    I’m down
    like a rollercoaster racing through my life
    rollercoaster racing through my life
    I’ve erased the past again

    a risky morning
    I feel like I’m alive
    I can’t believe I’ve made it through this time
    the edge of sorrow I lived in for some time
    (lived in for some time)
    has left the hole I have inside

    The burden is I try my hate
    was the last thing I ever felt
    or thought I could escape

    I’m up
    I’m down
    like a rollercoaster racing through my life
    I’ve erased the past again
    [x2]

    You let me in then broke me down
    the difference is this time around
    I will not let you see me try

    I’m up
    I’m down
    like a rollercoaster racing through my life
    I’ve erased the past again
    [x2]

    Erased the past again now
    Erased the past again

    Beneath the water
    that has fallen from my eyes

      Thank you so much, CptKD! I am not familiar with that song either. I remember Tracey’s interview and her mention of this song as what was running through Casey’s head while she was in jail, and Cindy saying, “it’s my song.” Weird.
      I thought Tracey was fascinating – her vantage point gave her quite a perspective on what it was like in that home while Casey was out of jail…. It was interesting how Casey reverted back to the large and in charge one; when she told George to leave the house, she told off Leonard Padilla, too.

      Happy Easter to you, too! That’s my niece in the pics, and my sister-in-law, her mother. 🙂
      There’s a picture of me on the “about” page!

    CptKD, thanks for the lyrics, I remember when that song was mentioned.
    It gave me a eerie Felling listen to it.
    It gives us a little Idea what Mindset Casey was in at the time she listened to that Song over and over. Kind of sad I think, especially when I think of Caylee she is the One who had to pay with her Life because her own Mom wasn’t emotional capable to take care of her own Daughter and keep her save. 😦

      You are so very welcome, Hilde!

      I tell you, between this song, and the other (Everyone Lies, Everyone Dies) song (which also had extremely similar coincidences to the case), I cannot help but believe, that Inmate Anthony is one absolutely EVIL woman.

      I also assume at this point, that Cindy comes with her own set of fowl and disgusting traits.

      As much as I believe that Inmate Anthony was born with deep-rooted disorders and issues…
      It goes without saying, that both –
      George and Cindy contributed, and enabled her to keep up with her nasty ways…
      Not only did they NOT put a stop to some behaviours from early on in childhood, but they continued to allow here to make her own set of rules, different than the rest of the people, as she grew up –

      Her day is coming…
      Seems it’s taken a long, long time to get here, but it’s just but a few days away now –

      We must TRUST and BELIEVE, that justice will be served in a but a short time, and that little Caylee will finally be permitted, to rest in peace!

      She deserves to be finally set free…

      *Think some rulings are in!
      Just announce on HLN!
      Be right back –

    The song lyrics are disturbing and haunting. With everything that transpired after Jul 15, 2008 the lyrics ring of a statement she should have given LE instead of Zanny the nanny. Still waiting for Perry to announce his rulings and then Mason just filed another motion saying how Perry once again got it wrong. Baez has filed a motion to have the party pics tossed after he said he would tell all about the 31 days in the first 2 minutes of his opening statement. I guess he does not want to talk about the pictures though.

      That’s it, damagdpets!
      Those pictures tell a story that will shoot down what Baez wants to promote in his opening statement-can’t have that!

    I forgot to say that I think Perry is wrestling with the dog issues. The state supreme court ruled to toss out drug sniffing dog evidence from another case. I think this will impact the Anthony case as well because of the same principals. By this ruling drug runners don’t have to worry about dogs sniffing any more, they just have to worry if an officer has X-Ray vision to see inside their trunks. What is going on with the justice system? I am starting to believe the old saying of “criminals have more rights than us.”

    Last but not least: The Anthony’s have filed a motion to be allowed in the court room during trial. I hope the law is equal to all witnesses and they are sequestered. If justice prevails they can sit at the defense table when they are charged with false statements to LE , Obstruction of Justice and tampering with evidence. I think it would be a more appropriate time for them to make funny faces, shake their heads and talk under their breath. I know I’m rambling and getting ahead of myself…one case at a time right? Ok…so I have high hopes………….
