Justin Brown ~ A True Officer & A Gentleman!

It's so hard to write this and refer to the past tense, but we must keep his memory alive! Also, If one person is reading this and thinks their life is so bad, that they have no choice but to end it. I plead with you to think again! Read these words from a mentoring officer, who feels like he has lost a brother & a son. Watch the video, and look at the always smiling face with the countless friends that love him and would have done anything to help him through his troubles. There is always help! If there is a problem~ I promise there is a solution! Let's remember the Unforgettable, One of a kind, Kind hearted~ Justin Michael Brown!

Here is Justin's eulogy in it's entirety:

Good Afternoon….. I won’t be quoting lines from poetry or music today I am here to talk about Justin. I wasn’t Justin’s best friend…I didn’t hang with him outside of work on a regular basis….Justin didn’t give me a cool nickname like “Billy Bottles… I simply had the pleasure of watching Justin grow up in Ventnor and I worked with him in the police dept. which by police standards made us brothers. When Justin moved to Ventnor it didn’t take long for him to make a name for himself. He wasn’t the average football/baseball type of boy, he was, how should I put it? Different!

He was one of those skateboarders…you know them…the ones who would jump off your porch …grind your railings and of course wax your curbs. His style of dress was as unique as his ever changing hairstyles and colors. What was blonde one week would turn to green, red or even black with a Mohawk in a matter of days. No one was ever shocked to see Justin in some sort of cast for breaking a wrist or a collarbone. He did things his way and didn’t care what anyone thought of his fashion sense. I may be off by a year or 2, but I remember Justin returned from a trip to Florida, I think he was 13 maybe 14 and he was showing off a tattoo he had gotten…..a real tattoo… I got my first tattoo when I was 35 and here was this skinny little 14 year older smiling from ear to ear over his first tattoo…That was Justin Brown! Justin loved body art so much that he helped establish Ventnor’s first unofficial tattoo parlor which set up shop in Janee’s backyard on Princeton Ave. Some of you out there were customers. Behind every good man is a better woman….In Justin’s case that was his mother Janee, who is as caring and unique as the son she had raised. When most parents would be calling a psychiatrist for looking like Justin did, Janee supported and even encouraged Justin to express himself, this support never faltered through Justin’s entire life. Justin knew he was a momma’s boy he made no qualms about it, the one constant in his life was Janee (me ma as Justin referred to her as), Jenee always had his back and Justin always had hers. Their relationship was one of mutual love, admiration and respect. Besides that he loved her food, especially her bourbon chicken.

4 years ago when Justin became a Ventnor Police Officer he still had a lot of that Déjà vu club mentality in him. Bee Bop Brown, White Chocolate were just a few of his nicknames he acquired from his brothers and sister in the department. Most cops go on duty wearing a G-shock watch and maybe a wedding band. Not Justin…he would walk into roll call, his sleeves rolled up, wearing a “Micheal Kors” white designer watch that’s size would challenge Flava Flav’s along with silver rings, bracelets, a neck chain and a black “Valcom” T-shirt under his vest, not dept issue. Justin would bop into roll call with his slicked back, stiff as a board, mannequin hair, a pack of cigarettes and a Monster energy drink in his hand.

Justin was was never at a loss for words and frequently would incorporate what I call “Justinisms” into his everyday conversations….. “Yo, why you throwin hate at me?” or “I hate your face” …“Cracka” and who could forget “Cold Blooded”, just to name a few! His use of the vernacular actually had some of our clientele wondering if he was one of us or one of them. We had a real winner on our hands with this one, and he turned out to be one of the kindest, most compassionate officers I have ever worked with and I know that anyone who spent any time with Justin felt as I did.

The kids in Ventnor loved Justin, he grew up in Ventnor, was schooled in Ventnor, they related to him, he spoke their language, he listened to their music, he was from their generation and he was a skateboarder. I can’t tell you how many kids Justin helped, just by listening and giving them a minute of his time. I remember one time Justin was dispatched to kick skaters off the community building steps….When I pulled up he was doing ollie’s with one of the kids boards in his uniform..….you laugh, but you all can see him doing that in your head.

I wish I could offer you more today…An explanation…some comforting words, but I can’t. Maybe the answer lies in a question. A question we’re rarely asked anymore with sincerity. The question is “how ya doin?” 9 out of 10 times the answer will be “I’m ok”. But maybe if the timing is right you may get a different response… and that brief exchange may make all the difference in the world. Thank you for allowing me to share my thoughts with you. God bless us all and Rest in Peace Justin, you will be missed and never forgotten.

Attention City Folk!! Grow A farm in your window!

All you need is a window, and not for planting window boxes either. This is really quite unique, you don't even need soil to grow berries, lettuce, and even beans.
On a warm day you can mix up a pitcher of mine lemonade with some of the ingredients right from your window.
You have to set up what's called a window farm. A hydroponic contraption that basically force feeds plants water and nutrients.
Everything is done out of plastic bottles from the recycling bin. You also have to get some supplies from the hardware store, and add nutrients and water. I love fresh herbs and this concept is really quite clever. Try it. You can order kits or collect recycling goods to just create your own.

Hello Gorgeous~Get some Guns for Free!


I love Physique57 & I hate working out.
It has been the only regime I have stuck with, never got bored with and have loved the results. Honestly. I have been slacking lately so the pics aren't as grand as say, around the wedding. I had some pretty nice arms:) In my opinion anyway!
How fantastic they are to let you try out the complete system for free. you only pay $7.95 for the shipping and handling to you. If you love it and keep it(which I promise YOU WILL!) They bill you $49.95. That's it. For three dvds and the playground ball and tape measure. What are you waiting for. It's all the motivation you need in the comfort of your own home. SLICE IT DOWN!

You should too!

Come the cruel light of morning, you may look at your phone and wonder why your friend sent you a message like "I wish everyone could be as happy as the people in the laxative commercials." Submit that bit of SMS poetry to the oft-hilarious and frequently filthy Texts from Last Night, where it can live anonymously with others of its kind. I am almost ashamed that this site amuses me... But it so does!

In this Wet Weather I need something DRY~~

I have tried every dry shampoo on the market. This one is hands down my favorite. Just another reason for me to go to Sephora:) It' s super lightweight, so it won't weigh your hair down. It will give you an extra day or so on your blowout, especially in this humid~ heat wave we are having. It absorbs moisture and oil and makes it smell spring fresh! Find it here

The Ex~factor worth hearing about!

Pawn shops are icky. And, according to every bad 70’s cop show we’ve ever seen, they never give you what something is really worth. Consignment shops are even worse. You have to give up a percentage of the total cost AND they always smell like your great-aunt’s house. Eeew. So, what’s a girl like you to do? You have all that jewelry sitting around that you loved so hard to get (that sounded dirty, but you know what we mean) and will never wear again...
Welcome to -http://www.exboyfriendjewelry.com/ a site where you can buy/sell/trade and blog about all of those little painful reminders in your jewelry box that make you wonder “what did I ever see in him?" You set your own price. You get it off your chest and out of your sight. Just because you don’t want it, doesn’t mean somebody else isn’t dying for it. Everyone’s a winner! Maybe you love him, maybe you never want to speak to him again, but either way, you’re ready to move on and make a little rent money in the process (insert “wink” icon here). Here’s the story, you don’t want it and he can’t have it back (insert another “wink” icon here, and then stop winking, seriously).
There are some serious steals on here. Check it out!

I Offer you..Ioffer.com!

I hestitate to share this because I am selfish and this is a GOOD one. Love the Knock off Purse parties but their isn't enough of them. Love Christian Louboutin's, Manolo Blahnik's, and Jimmy Choos but don't have the $800 per pair to drop. Well my friends I offer you, IOFFER.com. Skip the middle man and go directly to the source of fraudulent designer impersonation that is China. You can actually haggle and get better deals the more things you buy. Beware the site is slow and be prepared to spend hours searching through the thousands of louis vuitton bags. It won't be a waste though because in 7-10 days you can have. 3 bags , 2 pairs of shoes, Tiffany ring and a partridge in a pear tree for a $200. Now that's what I call a deal! YOU'RE WELCOME:)

It's Genetic!

Here's what you do:
1. Order a kit from our online store.
2. Claim your kit, spit into the tube, and send it to the lab.
3. Our CLIA-certified lab analyzes your DNA in 6-8 weeks.
4. Log in and start exploring your genome.
I have done this and have found out quite a bit about myself.. I am European with an increased chance for breast cancer & celiac disease, but less of a chance to develop lung cancer & parkinson disease. Oh, and I found a 5th cousin. The site is wild. it's a bit pricey but this type of genetic testing has been proven to be wildly accurate. Pretty astounding if you think about it!
