Buckingham Palace Makes Sad Announcement About Queen Elizabeth – She Needs Your Prayers

This is heartbreaking.

Published

on

Everyone deals with grief differently. Some try to go out of their way to not think about their dearly departed, while others will do whatever it takes to keep that person in the forefront of their consciousness, as a tribute to those that they miss. Hopefully, over time the ability to talk about those people comes easier.

This is especially true if you live a life that can’t be easily identified with. This makes for the really good friendships to be few and far between. That is the case with royal families for many reasons. The most prevalent of which is that for the sake of safety, the potential friend pool is shrunk considerably. Also, there aren’t just a whole lot of people who can relate to the life that a royal lives. Yes, it’s charmed in many ways, but it’s also more complicated, and at times frustrating in many ways. Any time that you find a good friend and confidant, royal or not, you should hold on to them tightly.

The English queen lost such a friend years ago, and she’s not ready to forget about it yet. Her tribute to her friend is nothing short of touching.

Via Daily Mail:

“So THAT’S what’s in her handbag! The Queen clutches a purse emblazoned with her friend Archduchess Helen of Austria as she leaves her 80th birthday party at The Ivy

The exact contents of the Queen’s ever-present handbag have long been a subject of speculation, but now she has a new addition to keep her coins in.

Her Majesty was seen carrying a bespoke coin purse last night, as she made a rare outing for dinner to The Ivy in London, which had been personalised with an image of a woman with two children.

The picture shows her long-standing friend and relative, Archduchess Helen of Austria, who is also a cousin of the Duke of Edinburgh.

Known in royal circles as Helen of Hapsburg, she is a member of the ‘inner circle’ of the Europe’s reigning and once-reigning royalty, as her mother was the late Princess Elizabeth of Greece.

She was a close friend of the Queen’s later sister, Princess Margaret, and knows most of the British royal family including Prince and Princess Michael of Kent and Princess Alexandra.
The archduchess and her family hired out the famous London eaterie on Thursday night for a party to celebrate her 80th birthday and the purses were given to the guests as gifts as they departed.


Archduchess Helen is the daughter of Count Carl Theodor zu Toerring-Jettenbach and Princess Elisabeth of Greece.

She married Archduke Ferdinand of Austria in 1956 and the couple spent five happy decades together before his death in 2004.

The couple had three children Elisabeth, who sadly died in 1983, Sophie and Maximilian.
For last night’s outing, the Queen looked elegant in a silver embellished ensemble and even donned a pair of heels for the celebratory occasion.”

It’s such beautiful imagery that she decided to bring a reminder of her great friend on her special day. The queen is such a regal mystery to most of us, that it’s easy to forget that royals go through the exact same transition in life that the rest of us do. The Queen’s being so advanced in age, and chances are, she doesn’t have many lifelong friends left.

Via Truth Monitor:

“Last year, Margaret’s daughter Sarah Chatto talked about how close the Queen and Margaret were as she watched old footage of the pair singing together as children in a documentary to mark the Queen’s 90th birthday.

‘It’s very revealing how that closeness started and that never got weaker,’ she explained.

Royal insiders say that the Queen has become incredibly close to Chatto since the death of her sister.

‘The Queen adores Sarah and seeks out her company as often as possible. She is her absolute favourite younger Royal,’ an insider said. ‘They are hugely at ease in each other’s company. Much giggling can be heard when they are together. They share a sense of loyalty, fun, duty and the ridiculous.'”

When we think about what will happen here on earth after we’re gone, I think the most we can hope for is to have made a positive impact and to be fondly remembered by those we loved. If we our God, family and country in some way, hopefully, that is enough. Thanks to those who remember the people who were loyal to them in this life, and don’t let the beautiful memories fade.

Urgent ALERT: Top Christmas Gift DEADLY… Get Rid Of It NOW!!!

It’s already too late for some kids…

Published

on

Each year we have that different toy that every kid wants and is sold out everywhere, but this year that toy might come with serious consequences.

Although these accusations haven’t been proven, a mother has taken to Facebook to warn fellow parents not to buy Hatchimals bath bombs products for their kids this Christmas season after her young daughter was left with what appears to be first-degree chemical burns all over her body.

Jennifer Renee who lives in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, posted what appears to be very disturbing pictures of her daughter Willow’s painful looking injuries on Facebook last week. The pictures were of her daughter’s distressing chemical burn injuries after using the Hatchimals Bath Bomb toy. She went on to claim her child sat in the bath for what was only 30 to 45 seconds when her skin became inflamed, red, and painful to the touch.

The mother later confirmed on her Facebook page that her daughter Willow had been diagnosed as having suffered a chemical burn and not an allergic reaction as she previously had suspected.

She then proceeded to call the company who produces this product, Spin Master and later revealed that the batch number is being investigated and will “likely” be recalled because of previous complaints.

This Young Girl Got A Serious Chemical Burn From A Bath Bomb via the Daily Mail:

A representative for Spin Master, which owns the Hatchimals brand, has responded with a statement: “Spin Master has been looking into the matter with the manufacturer and licensee to whom we license the Hatchimals brand. Safety is our top priority and we are deeply saddened to learn of the girl’s injuries. At this point, Global Brands Group has not found any indication of a product defect or manufacturing issue. Additionally, the product formulation has been subject to stringent safety testing and meets all industry standards.”

The Global Brands Group, the Hatchimals distributer, also provided a statement after reviewing the case: “Global Brands Group takes the safety of our products very seriously. We manufacture and ship millions of bath bombs and body washes, and have rigorous processes in place around development and testing, as well as all aspects of production. After careful review, we are confident our Hatchimals bath products are, in fact, safe. However, it is recommended that consumers be mindful of any adverse reactions they may have based on personal allergies or sensitivities.
The Spin Master representative who emailed us alleges that Jennifer Renee’s statement that an FDA expert responded to her specific accusations (in the photo posted by her on Facebook) is false, and that the photographed statement is unclear, and possibly taken out of context. We have reached out to the FDA consumer officer and will update this story as we learn more.

Kids aren’t looking for a fancy claw-footed bathtub with bubbles that are perfectly fluffed just so for the ‘gram — they’re just in there to get clean and get out. But many parents avoid potential temper tantrums around bath time by filling the water with washable soap crayons and fizzy balls of soaps that turn into toys. Sadly, it’s not always suds and smiles, as we learned from one mother who just issued a warning against a bath toy that allegedly gave her daughter a serious chemical burn.

In the case of Jennifer Renee and her daughter Willow, it was a Hatchimal that took bath time from fun to frightening. The Wonderball of bath bombs, a Hatchimal (like, hatching animals) looks like a giant egg, and it that dissolves on contact with water, “hatching” to reveal a “mystery surprise” (usually a plastic animal charm or figurine). Although, for Jennifer and Willow, the real surprise in the Hatchimal was burning pain.

Thursday, Jennifer posted her cautionary story on Facebook, claiming that she dropped a Hatchimal soap toy into Willow’s bath, and less than a minute after touching the water, Willow suffered red chemical burns all over her skin.

“PSA! Do NOT buy this for your children!” she wrote next to the split image of the Hatchimal product box and Willow’s burned hand. “Followed directions on package and placed in her bathtub,” Jennifer’s post continued. “Thought it would be fun for her because there was a toy inside. After being in the water 30-45 seconds she stated her skin was hurting, upon looking she has received a chemical burn from a KIDS BATH BOMB. (no she was not holding it and she has used multiple different kinds of bath bombs and never had this reaction) Just a warning people.”

After taking Willow to see a doctor to asses the reaction, Jennifer updated her post, explaining that the doctor ruled the irritation a chemical burn, more than just a simple adverse skin reaction. A chemical burn, as dermatologist Josh Zeichner explains it to us, is “a general term that refers to an allergic irritation reaction in the skin;” the common causes of the skin allergies of this type, include certain fragrances, preservatives, and dyes.

And in the case of the burning Hatchimal, Julie M. Barrows, a consumer safety officer from the Office of Cosmetics and Colors sector of the FDA, allegedly responded to Jennifer’s post, saying Willow’s reaction was likely caused by the D&C Red No. 33 dye. She reportedly explained in her note to Jennifer that the red dye is categorized as suitable for “externally applied cosmetics” (think: lipstick), but it “may not be used for bath products.

I am not saying this woman is a liar. But if there were previous complaints wouldn’t you think this wouldn’t be the first time we would have heard about this? I very much doubt Spin Master, who has a spotless safety record and produces millions of these products would have kept quiet all this time and risk multiple lawsuits instead of immediately recalling the product before more children were affected by whatever is in these toys that are causing the burns.

Please share if you want to get to the bottom of this issue….

SHOCKING NEWS Out Of TEXAS – 60-70 Bodies Found Rotting In Field … This Is HORRIFIC!

Published

on

America’s criminal justice system is a finely tuned machine with one purpose; justice for all. While good old-fashioned detective work, canvassing, questioning and sometimes a gut instinct will never be replaced during investigations into criminal activity, the fastest evolving part of an investigation is the forensic science.

As citizens of this great nation, we are constantly in search of a way to make sure that no innocent person is punished and no guilty person gets off scot-free. However, the more sadistic and creative the criminals get, the more tedious and meticulous those who try to catch them might be. While this looks like a few trips to a computer on TV shows, the reality is that forensic science is a dirty business and one that most of us don’t completely understand.

In order to determine things like how long a person has been dead, scientists and investigators need to actually observe a body decompose in a controlled environment, and that’s just is happening at a body farm in Texas. Daily Mail reports that the bodies are exposed to the elements and covered with cages to keep scavengers off them, and while it’s for a good cause, it’s truly horrific to see:

“These gruesome images show the inside of a body farm – a graveyard where the dead are left to rot in open cages.

Rows upon row of dead bodies are lined up in the metal pens in the remote Texan field as part of scientific research into how corpses rot.

In fact, despite its grisly appearance, the so-called body farms actually help police solve crimes by helping to determine when victims were killed.”

Scientists at The Forensic Anthropology Centre at Texas State University are able to use the donated dead bodies and compare them to those killed in suspicious circumstances.

The information gathered here can be used in a court of law and researchers have been called to give evidence for the prosecution and defense. The bodies can also be used to help with facial reconstruction.

By using the skulls and images of those who volunteer for the open burial scientists can help police to reconstruct what an actual victim may have looked like.

They often have worked in law enforcement so know how useful the facilities are, decomposition expert Dr. Danny Wescott told CBS Austin.”

Just like a person can choose to be an organ donor, someone can also donate their body to science after they pass on. This is just one of the possibilities for what could be done with someone who makes that donation.  It’s far from a pleasant sight to see, however, the work is one of those unpleasant necessities to keep crime down.

Without endeavors like this one, the forensic departments would have no way of training their scientists to determine exact times of death, which markings on a body come from attacks and which come from scavengers, etc. That is important, not only in the sense that it helps bring justice for the families of those killed, but knowing that it’s getting increasingly more difficult to get away with a crime, keeps crime down. Behavior will always depend on its consequences, and without an effective way to punish attackers, more attacks would happen.

Dr. Danny Wescott has spent a number of years leading the research of skeletons at the US university.

He said: ‘It allows us to see how bodies decompose. We work with law enforcement officials and help with the training of local police cadets.

‘We get bodies given to us specifically to use. Living donors offer their bodies as donations. We also take next of kin donation.

‘We have two criteria for the bodies – they must be under 500 pounds when they die. And they must not have any active infectious diseases like hepatitis C. We also accept cremains.

‘It then gets assigned to a research project. The bodies can be left out in the field for six months to a couple of years.

‘The skeleton is then used for further research. In fact, most of the research is done on skeletons.’

To be a part of the body farm most people volunteer before their death – although some are donated by next of kin. Police then observe how different factors influence the way the bodies decompose.

‘Law enforcement provides different scenarios and we look at the effects of clothing and things like diabetes on the body,’ Dr. Wescott said.

‘It allows us to give estimations on death to the police. We can also help with facial reconstruction.

‘Because we know what the person looked like before they died we can compare this with what those who draw the facial reconstruction images have come up with.

‘We also look at the ecology side – and how it impacts specifically on insects. We have scientists here from the UK because there is a demand for it.’

The bodies have to be caged to protect them from vultures, which are rife in Texas.
‘At the moment we have between 65 and 70 bodies. There are more men than women but we also get some couples who donate their bodies,’ Dr.Wescott said.

This might not be the kind of place that you want to go on a family vacation, but it might just be what keeps the streets a little safer wherever you do take your vacation. Like many of the aspects of law enforcement, this isn’t a particularly pleasant task, but one that has to be done if we are going to try to keep our nation safe.

It’s Official! The Camera Just Caught It…Secret Is Out Now After The Shocking Reveal!

Published

on

First Lady Melania Trump has been exceptionally busy during her first Christmas season in the White House. Despite all the festivities and responsibilities she has in her new role, she kept herself even busier with spreading compassion to the hundreds of victims of this year’s natural disasters. Now that she’s back in Washington, D.C., she’s settling back into her festive routine for the rest of December when a photo was snapped of her and President Trump. While the shot looks stunning as ever, there’s something unexpected that the camera caught. Now the secret is out and the first lady is bracing herself for the inevitable attacks.

There is absolutely nothing this incredible presidential pair can do without coming under an onslaught of scrutiny from their detractors. The couple’s first White House Christmas picture was no exception. Everyone immediately noticed something “wrong” with it as soon as the official portrait was revealed. Now there’s no more hiding it and there’s nothing wrong with that either. However, leave it to hateful, anti-Christmas liberals to turn the image “issue” into major allegations against the Trumps.

Opposing Views reports:

President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump have revealed their official Christmas card for 2017.

The first lady debuted the card on Twitter on Dec. 14, reports Empty World.

In the caption accompanying the Trump’s Christmas card photo, the first lady tweeted: Merry Christmas from President Donald J. Trump and First Lady Melania [email protected] & @FLOTUS are seen Tuesday, December 5, in their official 2017 Christmas portrait, in the Cross Hall of the White House in Washington, D.C.”

Seems like an elegant and perfect Christmas card, right? Well, liberals took immediate notice and concern of something else. Rather than realizing that this was a shot that was supposed to be just of the President and First Lady, people began to react to the fact that their youngest son Barron, wasn’t in the photo greeting.

“This Christmas…Barron Trump is HOME ALONE!” one commenter said, cleverly making reference to the popular 1990 movie of the same name. As the remarks and question of the boy’s absence came pouring in, the next plausible step for Internet sleuths was to start a hashtag for it – since that’s what they do.

The hashtag “Where’s Barron” almost immediately made an appearance. “For the photo, the first lady wore a sleeveless, long, black dress, with pointed black stilettos, while the president wore a black tuxedo with a matching bow tie,” Opposing Views pointed out of our stunning first couple. “They are seen smiling, hand in hand, standing in front of the White House double doors, with two Christmas trees on either side, each of which is covered in fake snow.”

The couple is certainly used to the criticism at this point since it’s been a solid year of such ridiculous attacks that have no sign of slowing in the new year. They probably realized that they are “damned if you do and damned if you don’t” with including Barron in the picture since the criticism then would have been why they didn’t have the rest of Trump’s children in the shot. Chances are, they decided to just keep it simple.

Opposing Views has more:

Prior to unveiling the photo, the White House debuted a video of Melania Trump getting the property ready for the holidays, decorating the trees, preparing wreaths, and supervising the baking of cookies.

Stephanie Grisham, director of communications for the first lady’s office, confirmed via tweet that a huge gingerbread house was also prepared, constructed from 300 pounds of dough, reports Time.

Also on display are former President Ronald Reagan’s china and former President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s 1866 edition of “A Christmas Carol.”

More details on the decorations are provided by The Daily Beast, which reports that also on display are 71 wreaths, 53 Christmas trees, more than 18,000 lights, more than 12,000 ornaments, over 3,100 yards of ribbon and more than 1,000 feet of garland.

The Daily Beast’s Tim Teeman thought it was overkill, however, and declared it the “creepiest home space in America,” comparing it to scenery from a Tim Burton movie and recommending that the first lady keep the Christmas decorations up for next Halloween.

In addition to the card and video, Melania Trump also issued an official Christmas statement, reports Time. “The President, Barron, and I are very excited for our first Christmas in the White House,” she said. “As with many families across the country, holiday traditions are very important to us. I hope when visiting the People’s House this year, visitors will get a sense of being home for the holidays.”

The root of the issue is probably jealousy that the Trumps are in the White House and Hillary Clinton is not on this Christmas card as she and all of her supporters expected to see before her major loss in the presidential elections. We have a lot of reasons to celebrate this season and the two people in this picture have a lot to do with that.
