Only three and a half shopping days left until Christmas! On that note, I’d like to share a few gift ideas for those hard to shop for people (like myself *wink*) and most are under even $50 bucks…Cheapskate!
Clapper Plus w/ Remote Control and Sound Activation – I don’t think I’m lazy enough for the Clapper, but the Clapper II is one of my favorites! Just think, you have a little remote to turn your lamps on and off….how cool is that! It also can be programmed to turn devices on when ANY SOUND is heard…perfect as a theft deterrent when you are not at home.
Dirt Devil Rechargeable Broom Vac– This cute little vacuum cleaning broom thingy looks like it would be great for hardwood floors and it’s so cute! It comes in several colors (red is my favorite) and could be the perfect little cleaning companion….Did I mention how cute this thing is….LOL!
American Gangster – The Complete First Season – Y’all know how much I love Gangsters!! AMERICAN GANGSTER is BET’s critically acclaimed, highly rated crime docu-series that explores the historical, socio-economic and political context surrounding the rise and fall of 9 notorious African-American criminal minds. These are not just your two-bit hustlers…One modeled his organization after the management structure of General Motors. Another studied gemology to be well versed and blend in among an elite audience of jewelers and high end collectors. Another was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize and the Nobel Prize in Literature for children’s books before he was eventually executed. What was the catalyst for their life of crime? How does their story begin and end? This groundbreaking series digs deeper to answer these and other poignant questions.

Kai Franklin Graham, the daughter of Atlanta Mayor Shirley Franklin, pleaded guilty today to federal charges that she illegally concealed proceeds from her former husband’s transcontinental drug-trafficking ring.
Her former husband, Tremayne Graham, who had ties to the Black Mafia Family (BMF) was convicted of several drug charges and sentenced to life in prison in April 2007. The charges against Kai Franklin stem from the fact that while her husband was a fugitive, she converted cash from him into 14 postal money orders totaling $14,000. She admitted going to seven Atlanta area post offices in a single day to avoid federal financial rules that would require reports of transactions exceeding $2,000.
Franklin Graham is likely to be sentenced to three months of home confinement and three years of probation. However, if she fails to comply with terms of her plea agreement with federal prosecutors, U.S. District Judge Henry M. Herlong Jr. could increase the sentence to as much as five years in prison and a $250,000 fine. (Source – AJC)
