    Pay attention to the signs.




    The beautiful thing about life and destiny is that it is pre-determined.
    In reality...all we must do is live...

    BE

    If you believe in God.....you feel he has you.
    Some will argue that you can shape your destiny.....
    I actually think that once you make certain decisions and/or end up in certain places ....your destiny becomes more clear [to you]....but that it [How God ordered your steps] was still already in the works for you. Another example of how its generally all about perception.
    What if we knew all the details of our future???

    How many of us would knowingly choose to feel pain, dissapointment, sorrow, grief or regret????
    Even though we know how good it feels when something GREAT happens after a string of mishaps....how many people would choose to loose sleep and miss a few meals (in a row) just so they could get the "point"?

    Despite our knowing that after every winter comes the spring...& our belief that God puts obstacles in our way to make sure we are prepared for the REALLY great things coming our way

    ......we still pray, wish and some act like we have more control over what is happening to us and around us......

    I've been guilty of this.........


    With all of our reasoning abilites, instincts, emotions, memories, hunches, etc.....we are still guessing.

    No matter how much we fight it and lash out at the people that have wronged us.....it will not change the out come.
    *
    I struggled with this post for days because I didn't really know how to really express my feelings on the subject.......

    Should I try to be funny..........?

    Should I talk about my passenger and our connection?

    Shouild I talk about traffic engineering?
    After all my back and fourth....I realized that I need to just keep it real.....
    I FEEL SO BLESSED TO BE ALIVE!!!
    *
    #1 I was involved in an accident with a train and I lived to talk about it!!!!!
    #2 God made sure I was not alone during the incident. That is crazy because I am always dolo. There was just too much going on and I am so glad OOH was there with me. Yeah Yeah Yeah....that's who was in the car with me....LOL! If I were Brittany Spears this would have already been front page news. He was the epitome of calm under pressure. I am so mad I didn't get a picture....for a number of reasons....OOH got a hair cuuuut! LOL! Yes! The dreds are gone....12 years of hair! Big Ups to you Big Bro on making that hard decision! Also b/c....he was there to tie up the front of my car...LOL! ............and wiped his hands on his shirt and said, "I'm keeping this shirt...LOL! This is the day C-Love and I cheated death" F.I.s.H. are such sentimental people. That shirt is going to be worth BIG BUCKS one day! The crazy part is....b/c we were not hurt at all....the seriousness and the gravity of what happened didn't set in immediately. Shuuucks....he and I continued our trip to the flea market as was our original intention. That is crazy...LOL! I can't wait to see how OOH freaks this story....you are such an artist. I can't wait to get your take.
    *
    They say the F.I.S.H. can stand for anything you want it to.....
    WELL, On that day 4 me.....it was (F)irst (I)'ll (S)ave a (H)eroine...LOL!
    *
    #3: MAIN MESSAGE I GOT FROM THIS OCCURANCE: GOD HAS A REAL PURPOSE FOR ME. Why else would everything have went down the way it did?
    *
    Oh yeah & this is not that serious, but I wanted to share....LOL!
    OOH got a real kick out of the fact that I knew how to put air in my car tires....LOL! & he about died when I pulled out my trusty pressure gauge. LOL! Im working my way around the care...untwisting caps....LOL! letting air out! topping off some tires after I went around once....Yeah! I'm on it! See this what I mean when I say, "Im a sistah pimpin"....I know some ppl may assume I am being cocky, but what I am saying is that I am well equipped and I handle mine. I am a woman no doubt (I can be girly when I want to be)...who loves an attentive and proactive man...but I can most def get the J-O-B done if need be....I can help my man out!!! OK Back to what I was saying.....
    *
    *
    Warning.....Be careful when riding up S. Howard St (Antique Row- below). The street is not labeled as well as it should be. You would think that since you are riding parallel with the train and in many parts alternating riding along the same stretch or road ....THAT THE STREET WOULD HAVE HUGE OR BLINKING LIGHTS TO SAY NO TURN. ....NOT HERE!!!!



    Many of the streets along Howard Street are ONE WAY. This is the street on which I was trying to make a left turn (below).....2 Lanes....VERY CONFUSING 4 ME!!!!...maybe I am the only person dumb enough to do it....OK! LOL!


    I was involved in a collison...I made a mistake....this is why you pay insurance premiums. I am a very safe driver....Knock on wood....I've never gotten any kind of moving violation and I always wear my seat belt. This is what happens when I don't pay close attention to the signs.....THAT IS THE FREAKIN STORY OF MY LIFE!!!!
    *
    This end up being a very loud wake up call....
    I WILL ALWAYS give praise to God for all of the experiences he gives me. In this case...he made me realize that I could have been gone in an instant...leaving so many projects incomplete. There are so many people that I've yet to meet...I haven't even performed a rap at a show yet...LOL! I have got to stick around a lil while longer!
    *
    Oh yeah....the following are totally innapropriate:

    I hope I dont get thrown in front of the light rail for this?.....
    How the hell you hit a light rail?....
    Ddd anyone on the train get hurt?......

    ...........or anything else that would imply this is funny or this occurance is out of the realm of possibility for anyone but me..
    *
    Thanks for checking in!

    Don't forget about the 26th ....& also check me out on MYSPACE @ www.myspace.com/clove

    A message from the Underground Business Bureau (UBB)



    It has come to my attention that the topic of yesterday's post has decided to take decisive action and fire back a response to my scathing criticism of how he does business.

    Apparently the newest member of the dynamic, BMore-based super group, "Da Banned", decided to repost my blog post on his message board. I knew nothing about them doing this until this morning. P-Funk deleted the post and rather than make it obvious as to what he was referring....he posts a message about me out of what would seem thin air.

    What is surprising....the response was addressed to me yet...the author knows there is no way that I can view the board and/or respond to the additional charges and accusations he is now leveling against me.
    *
    I response to his rant....I offer the following tidbits of info.

    This is far from over (btw he and I), but I ask that you all understand my reluctance to put out in the universe the little petty stuff that is unfortunately going on behind the scenes. This wil be the last time I talk about this again via IBB or ADLofHH.

    #1: It has already been proven that P Funk is a liar. He went into court and lied about his wife being assulted by Ogun. If need be.... will post highlighted scans of the court transcripts. Readers will be able to see that you and the "assulted" could not keep yall facts straight. You thought that man was just going to go into court and take the stet....HAHAHAHAHA!!! Yall wasn't prepared for balls! This being the case.....no one should believe anything you say EVER!!!!!

    #2: How is it that.....YOU witnessed a man assault your wife....and you NEVER said anything about kicking his ass or never even publicly acknowledged that you saw this man hit your wife....until you went into a court house. Then....even after you and the district attorney failed to convince a judge of your farce...YOU still didn't have anything to say????? Couple this with the fact that Ogun released a dis track where he said some things that were most definitely worthy of retort.....& STILL nothing???? I get it....it's just easier to pop shit with someone you don't perceive as a threat??? This is what I was referring to when I said "Bully-like" tactics. You could have rumbled with a man...but nah...its just easier to keep on tryna get out on me.

    #3: The tape to which you keep on referring to....man o man...it amazes me how you are using that tape to say everything you want it to say...LOL! I am not even going to get into that much detail because I have nothing to prove to anyone....BUT one thing I will say.....in response to you saying WE should eat the cost of a DVD I offer this response and point for the people to ponder:

    The numbers are hypothetical:

    A DVD cost $1000 to be made

    2 people put up $500 each

    A $500 deposit was paid with the understanding that the other $500 would be paid once the DVD was complete. (one partner holds the other $500 in trust)

    No DVD was produced - despite the fact that on the CD ( you continually reference - which was not recorded to be used in any manner you so please) I clearly state...and we agree that we would complete the DVD and then we would both get master copies and do with it as we please. I even have an e-mail from you where you tried to say what I could and could not call it...LOL! )

    The reason currently being offered to why the DVD was never made is totally BOGUS. It is obvious that the decision maker...NEVER looked at the footage (despite him saying that he wanted to hold off production until he had the time to re-evaluate the footage that the producer and I had already finished editing).....HE NEVER LOOKED at the footage because neither he or I is even in it...LOL! The camera man...JUST GOT THE BATTLES....no "Who you spit Hotter than"....No corny ass "This is your beat"....

    so the word is...Im supposed to eat the other $500...not we...cause it sounds to me ...like P -Funk gets to pocket the other $500. So let me get this straight...there is footage out there of SSW.....and if I say f-it and sell them (as I know I could)...I am promoting his event...LOL! and he doesn't want to sell it because that means his mooching *ss actually has to work. I will get anybody that wants it and will vouch publicly - a copy of the footage.....tell the people that what I am saying is true...the footage has neither of us on it. He has no excuse....or should I say...TRY ANOTHER ONE!!!
    *
    This is just 1 EXAMPLE of his funny math!!!!
    *
    I definitely said that I wanted to make a clean break with him at that meeting...but at the advice of my witness and business associate ..I ended the meeting by saying that I would think about all that had been discussed. This is on the audio file (CD) P -Funk likes to reference as well. He bringing everything back to me stating I wanted out of the partnership....cool, but what does that have to do with what I am owed.
    *
    I was dealing with a lot at the time...and left the meeting telling him that I wanted to continue the conversation at a later time because I was:

    # 1 emotional due to the manner in which he was treating me (I was hurt. I trusted! A VERY UN-BMORE LIKE TRAIT. Call me a succa for doing so! His true feelings had not been revealed until that time. Up until then.....I truly felt he viewed me as his equal in the endeavor. I was also informed for the first time that I didn't add anything to what made the event special.)

    &

    #2 I was being stubborn and full of pride. I was too quick tongued. I knew I could start over, but that was not the point. I was saying that I would walk away essentially giving him a jewel that he did not deserve.

    I promptly followed up with him (& not after weeks as he continually implies)...because I evaluated my investment in the project and felt that this problem could be resolved if we better...more clearly defined the boundaries of our partnership.

    Partner ships end everyday...it is not the right of any partner to tell another what he/she is gettin when she/he leaves. But in this case..b/c we had nothing in writing and b/c I allowed him to deal with the business aspect of the partnership and I handled the brunt of promotions...he had the upper hand. Then when he and his partner tried to send Ogun to jail....I consulted the I Ching and it told me to fall back & so I did with no question. I could care less about this man's future...he has burnt the brigde between he and I.....

    I just need my paper (period).

    Its funny how you not only think its funny that my car is messed up.....but then you went on to imply that I only put you on blast b/c I needed money to fix my car (your point??? That is ludacris..... I have FULL COVERAGE auto insurance)..... I've been asking for my money since day one. You FINALLY responded "the day before SW"!!! Publicity Stunt? You can't be serious??? Do you even have a car??? Get tha fuuuuuuug out of here!!!!

    What I think it comes down to iz....You don't have my money.....so you want to take me through changes - STALLING IS WHAT THEY CALL IT!!!! If you had it...why would you not put out the DVD of the BIGGEST EVENT YOU EVER CREATED....LOL? Give me my money and call it a day. You could sell 20-30 in one night or after a day on the phone...if you knew how to hustle i.e. sell merch (instead of hustlin hard-working people). Even if I was captured in the footage...CMG are experts..they could have simply lowered the volume when I talked or cut me out all together. I picked the best people for the job when I selected them for the project. You never once called to set up a time to go and see them so that you could review the footage as you said you would. Again you are cheating the people (your customers) b/c you want to be right (THE BOSS).

    You didn't make me...because you are nothing...how u make something out of nothing-exactly? I hollared at you....remember that! You can't take away any of my accomplishments ...what did you really do for me after all? ....Except steal from me after it was all said in done. You have NOTHING to do with my connection to the BMore streets. I got STYLE WARZ jumpin with the non-underground hip hop segments of the population....I am the one that reached out and nurtured relationships with MCs.....the blog is my creation...I went to all the other events and took the pics...I posted on message boards...It was ME up at 88.9 hollaring at Ahk....I was the one that got the good acts.... When was the last time you "googled" Style Warz?...what do you see? I am not trying to take credit for anything someone else has done.....it just kills me b/c you really know the truth. All I want is RESPECT!

    If you go back and look at the articles that you like to reference as proof that you hired me to host style warz....YOU SAY...."We fashioned the rules" (please see the 9th paragraph)...."We are XYZ".......You are right...I did give you credit for the basic/general outline (you bought to me what you saw at a poetry slam you were DJ-ing)...BUT It did not become Style Warz until WE did it. You and I worked out the rules, prize and price structure...I came up with the name (unfortunatley I have no proof....BUT THEN AGAIN...NEITHER DO YOU...that is why I don't argue that point....Who cares at this point anyway)!!! Do you remember you wanted to call it "Elements Battle AX"? Also..........how is that early style Warz flyers said Elements Style Warz and later ones said Style Warz (Period)...if it was ALL yours? How can I tell you to take your name off of your event.....the lowly host???? I can post 2 flyers side by side if you need a reminder! &...... Riddle me this...what is the/a TRADEMARK?? You mean to tell me those "letters" you are currently using for Style Warz is what you plan to brand...LOL! I don't think you even know what holding a trademark actually means.

    Who cares if ppl you poll think I am self-serving, predjudiced (are you saying I dislike non-blacks?), a snake.....all of those people would love for me to be on their team. I bet none of them have even tried to get to know me (Not C- Love). Most people are manipulative...& simple don't know there is a better, more respectible way. They will tell me and you anything they think we want to hear. I am pretty aware at this point who rides for me...all others can get take a number - a) to hate on a sistah pimpin or b) to hop on the the ecelera express going to the top!

    I think this is enough...I'll holla at you!

    Where ya from? - "BMore Baby!"

    Head Roc (along with Son of Nun and Entartete Kunst) will be performing LIVE @ Sonar tonight as part of the Mid-Atlantic Radical Book Fair. I just recently got turned on to this act. I am diggin what I've heard so far. I don't know about everything....so I need yall to keep me posted on who is doing what.

    Also...check out my MYSPACE page as I have added some new music. Ogun and Che Ray combined to make one hell of a song. "My Life" is one of the realest songs I've ever heard. So many people talk all this outlandish ish in their songs....instead Ogun took the root of just talking about his current existence. No fantasy....just his life. I think that approach ...if embraced by the masses....would make Baltimore stand out in a sea of hip hop that primarily fantasy. I added a Dukey Man remixed BROWN F.I.S.H. throwback joint, "Nah Mean". I wanted to show everyone that this mixing club and hip hop movement really started years ago. As with everything else....Baltimore needed someone else to make it cool b/4 everyone thought it was cool...LOL! Speaking of Club....Govt Names recently highlighted the newest MM feature story. Kelly sits down with many of Baltimore Club's pioneers and gets their pearls of wisdom and their insight on the future. Big Ups to you Kelly for continually going after the untold story. Also...check out today's GN post on Blaqq Starr (co-producer of D.O.G.'s "RYDA GYRL" Remix).

    Have you heard that "BMore State of Mind" by Unreal Yet? It was on both the DNA Harm City Compiliation as well as BossLady's "Baltimore State of Grind"......NO? Well get FAMILIAR!!! This is one of my favorite songs from the Unreality representer. I could really feel what he was saying....plus, he hollared out, "Where you from - BMore Baby"! I liked thaaaaaaaaaat! LOL! Its on my page too. You know....I have an idea for that song....someone from Unreality needs to hit me up! I will be adding one other in a day or so from one of the featured acts from the 7/26 show....Ima let that ride until the show. Until lata..........Ya know! Be-EZ!

    The REAL Slim Shady




    I wasn't going to EVER post about this directly, but at this point....
    I CAN'T KEEP QUIET ANY LONGER!!!!
    *
    I AM IN NO SHAPE WAY OR FORM A COWARD. I JUST DON'T BELIEVE IN FIGHTING EVERY BATTLE. I MAY LET THINGS SLIDE TO KEEP THE PEACE, BUT NO ONE IS GOING TO WALK OVER ME WITH DIRTY SHOES. IT'S ALWAYS A CRYING SHAME WHEN SOMEONE TAKES MY ACTUAL KINDNESS AS A WEAKNESS. EVERY MOVE I MAKE IS GENERALLY CALCULATED. I CHOSE TO WALK AWAY FROM STYLE WARZ BECAUSE I DIDN'T WANT TO DISRUPT THE PROGRESS THE SCENE HAD BEEN MAKING. IF I WOULD HAVE GIVEN HIM WHAT HIS HAND CALLED FOR....WHO KNOWS WHAT COULD HAVE HAPPENED. HE AND HIS PARTNER ALREADY ACCUSED AND WERE READY TO SEND ONE INNOCENT PERSON TO PRISON. I ALWAYS KNEW I'D MOVE ON....& WITH A TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF WORK...THE UPDATED STYLE WARZ COULD HAVE GONE ON TO BECOME A BALTIMORE INSTITUTION....BUT NOW.....
    *
    IT HAS TO COME TO AN END.....
    *
    IF YOU PEOPLE CONTINUE TO SUPPORT STYLE WARZ AND ITS HOST/PROMOTER/DJ (pictured above) you are totally disrespecing the MOVEMENT!!!! HE IS NOT WORTHY OF ANYTHING...LET ALONE YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY.
    *
    EVEN AFTER THIS MAN DECIDED THAT HE WANTED ALL THE "GLORY" THAT WENT ALONG WITH THE EVENT ....& HE AND HIS DOMESTIC PARTNER DECIDED EBONY & I WERE 2 MUCH TO BARE......HE IS STILL TRYING TO RAPE ME.
    *
    HE OWES ME MONEY (& NOT A SMALL AMOUNT) AND WON'T PAY ME WHAT I CAN PROVE I AM OWED! PLEASE BELIEVE ...HE WILL DO THE SAME THING TO YOU IF YOU LET HIM.
    *
    HE USES STRONG ARM AND BULLY-LIKE TACTICS TO GET WHAT HE WANTS, BUT IS NEVER READY TO DEAL WITH WHAT COMES FROM THAT....I AM PERPLEXED ABOUT THIS ONE. HOW YOU GONNA BITCH SLAP SOMEBODY AND RUN?
    *
    I TOOK THIS BIG ASS L LIKE A WOMAN....I WAS NOT ENTITLED TO ANY DIGNITY IN LEAVING AND NOW THIS.......ITS TIME FOR ME TO FIGHT BACK!!!!
    *
    I GAVE THIS MAN 2 MONTHS TO G-OFF (ON SOMETHING I BUILT).....& NOW HE IS GOING TO MAKE ME HAVE TO TAKE HIM TO COURT....WHAT IS IT????....I THINK "THEM" PEOPLES LIKE COURT HOUSES.
    *
    NONE OF THIS IS SLANDEROUS BECAUSE ITS ALL TRUE!!!! &....... I AM PREPARED TO PROVE IT. HE IS NOT A BUSINESS MAN.....IF YOU KEEP ON GIVING HIM YOUR MONEY YOU STAND FOR NOTHING. HIS KIND DON'T LAST SO.....THINK ABOUT WHO YOU ALIGN YOUR SELVES WITH. THERE WILL BE 3 NEW HIP HOP EVENTS STARTING SOON.....ONE IN JULY AND TWO IN AUGUST!!! THERE WILL BE SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE AT ALL SKILL LEVELS. PATIENCE IS A VIRTUE! IT TAKES TIME TO GET THINGS CRACKIN...BUT I AM BACK...VERSION 2.0!
    *
    BIG UPS TO MY PEOPLES THAT RECOGNIZE WHAT'S REAL!!!

    Backland's Welcome Back Bash!


    Black Flag Boys




    Yall know EJ showed off!!! He gave a really good show! "Drinkin and Smokin" never sounded so great! Mucho Gracious for all the love you show me, homes! The guy is such a freakin entertainer!!!



    Introducing Paper Boy!!! "The 17 year old phenom" as he put it...LOL! He came out on stage full of braggadocio! He was pretty good too! I can see him becoming a big name one day.






    Charm City sho knows how to give a party. This was my first time in Club Mate and I must say...I was impressed. It is a very pretty venue...TOO DAMN BAD its on Hanover Streeet. It just seems so out of place. Brooklyn (yeah, we have one in Baltimore too), is its own world. This is a part of the city where it seems to be totally normal for whites and blacks to call each other n*gga...LOL! anyways..that is anutha post
    *
    .........when Backland took the stage......EVERYONE was too their feet! It was really nice to see him get up there performing. This day has been a long time coming....The man has so much courage!!! I am sorry that so many people missed this great chance to let a Baltimore Hip Hop ikon know how much we are behind him. Hopefully...folk won't miss many more. We all need each other. If we don't support events like this one who will?????....just remember one day it will be your turn. I am sure the rain prevented a few people from showing their faces...BUT shit...If I could get in an accident involving a LIGHT RAIL and still make it....not sure what that says about some of yall. Its all ghood doh!...all of us that were there had a blast! HIGHLIGHT: Seeing Backland perform G'ed up was worth the headache of a nappy ass head today! Massive shout out to the entire Charm City Records fam (including Cole- thanks for the bands...the food was delish!, C- you are a great host!........... & Backland-mwah!!!!). I didn't see Mo, but he was surly missed! Much love to Gata, EJ & Ebony!!!! You are the greatest, Ms. Lady!!!!

    EJ & Ebony


    Ebony, Backland & C Love

    TINY FUSION ARE THE KINGS & QUEENS OF THE HILL
    On Saturday, June 24, 2006, Milestone Media presented The End of School Talent Showdown 2006 @ The Arena Players Playhouse (801 Mc Culloh St) & despite a few glitches*...the show was very entertaining.
    *
    LIKE*
    Judges Joe Dalvage (The Foundation) and Sonjay (92Q Big Phat Morning Show) were both NO SHOWS!!!
    Porkchop of 92Q was supposed to Host but he was a NO SHOW!!!
    DJ Franchise was supposed to DJ, but he was a NO SHOW!!!
    Some show CDs would not work
    The AC was broke...LOL! OMG! I might have lost a pound sitting in there...HA!
    .................&
    My water was warm
    *
    I am MORE THAN sure that most of this was over looked by the mostly school age audience.....They just wanted to see the dancers...LOL! and to scream OBVIOUSLY!
    *
    I judged along with Kelly Connelly (http://www.kellyconnelly.com/) and Kev from South Paw Entertainment. IMO we had the best seat in the house - FRONT ROW! I was a bit alarmed when I saw that there were 8 featured acts in addition to the youth competing in the KING OF THE HILL Teenage Talent (14- 19) Show. "Oh noooooooooooo"......is what raced through my mind...BUT it really worked out quite nicely. I wasn't bored at all! There were approximately 10 competitors...displaying a wide variety of talent AND ALL of them bought their A-GAME.
    *
    I finally got the opportunity to see DK perform and that was a treat. Dude is VERY ENERGETIC! Shout out to the whole 730 commision.
    Big Ups to Midas (Team Green) who had the lil girls up in there wrapped around his fingers with his mixture of hip hop, dance and comedy...LOL! (not literally), but you were a lot of fun to watch!
    South Paw Entertainment (Kadar, Kashon & G-Man) gave us crazy energy. Big Ups to you all for the moves yall been making as of late. I see ya!
    Dirty Hartz minus Slixta performed a couple new songs (I believe) that were rockin! This one in particular is definitely something for the clubs....perhaps its off of the "Club Crack" album that's gettin ready to drop on Koch??!!! That "Eh yuuuurp" song is too funnybecause it is so B'more. The fact that the beat ABSOLUTELY knocks prolly adds to the excitement I feel whenever I hear it! Oh &....didn't know he was away until yesterday, but special shout out to Mal!
    Other stand out featured performances included those of Jodie Fair and the Yung Hustlas! Ms. Fair has a very beautiful voice. Please check her out on MYSPACE when you get a chance. YH didn't win.....I'm expecting some hate mail during the next few days...LOL! Nah...these guys were honestly 1 point away from being in the running for winner. They had the young girls in the spot going crazy with their song, "The Way She Move". That damn Blue had the nerve to try to pull me on stage with him....Oh HELL Naaaaah!...he is 16 and fresh as hell- Walking hormones! Make sure yall cop that, "Strictly Business" Mixtape, I am tellin you........THEY KILL EVERY BEAT!!!! These kids are going to surprise a lot of people with their songwriting abilities.

    E the Poet Emcee & Shodekeh (surprise guest)

    Midas

    DK

    Lost Souls (SouthPaw Ent)

    Ray Victory with his new mixtape.

    I listened to the joint on the way home....& I need to holla at Nelly Nell for serious! They don't call him the blend king for nothing.

    Also...he gave me a few tracks from this guy, BOOGIE!!!! He is gonna be a problem, B'More!






    There were some very ghood singers, dancers & musicians (surprisingly....NO RAPPERS!!!!!), BUT....there can only be 1 winner:


    These kids were so good! Congrats to Tiny Fusion! They were a dance troupe of around 20 kids. The had the Spot caught up with their costumes....props....smiles and other things to make you say, "WOW"! They really gave it there all. You can tell they really practiced....quiet as kept...some of these lil girls has abs to die for. I enjoyed there show tremendously and they truly deserved the top honor. Its so hard to jugde kids because you know they are all trying! They recieved $500 in cash, a photo shoot with Kelly Connelly and a $100 Gift from a local clothing retailer. I know they will never forget this day! Cutie with the yellow LO was dancing his butt off!!! There were so happy...just the look on their faces let me know that...we cannot forget the kids. "They are always watching", us as Ms. Jodie Fair pointed out. Congrats Milestone on setting a fine example for all of us! Thanks for including me! Mwah!
