The Daily Tulip — International News From Around The World

Wednesday 26th July 2017

Good Morning Gentle Reader…. Well “Hump Day” is with us only three days to the week end… This morning, with the incredible heat we are experiencing here in Spain and on all the Costa’s and in land in Seville, Madrid, Granada and Mercia…. Great for the tourists but tough for the people that actually work and live here… Bella and I completed our walk, and she flopped down in the breeze from the fan.. I poured coffee and have started to look at the news, … but then I stopped and thought about some of the news I had posted a year ago.. The world’s a crazy place, and honestly not much changes but he’s what we were looking at on the 26th July 2016…

I thought I would talk to you about some obscure news some of what I read about, like the “Kum and Go” store escapade in Arkansas last week is difficult for me to write, sometimes as I am laughing so much or in the case of the “Kum and Go” story, embarrassed.. Some of the stories I tell you about, display the sheer stupidity of people..

Like the South Carolina woman who has been sentenced to life in prison after she hired a teen to kill her husband and in turn he killed the wrong man by mistake…. Prosecutor David Stumbo says 41-year-old Karlita Desean Phillips of Greenwood was sentenced for an act of “Sheer Stupidity”. She was convicted of being an accessory before the fact of murder and soliciting a minor to commit a felony….. Authorities say Phillips hired a 17-year-old to kill her estranged husband in 2013, but he killed her husband’s brother, 31-year-old Jamil Phillips, by mistake….. Investigators say Jamil Phillips was ambushed as he slid his key into the door of his home in Abbeville…..The teen is awaiting trial for murder. He testified he and Karlita Phillips were in a sexual relationship and that she hired him to kill her estranged husband….Have these people never heard of divorce… how stupid can you get???….

Some stories make me gag.. like the one from Phoenix Arizona …. A man checking on a friend at a Phoenix, Ariz., apartment found the grisly sight of blood-splattered walls and his friend’s self-mutilated body after he allegedly decapitated a woman and two dogs…. A call to 911 alerted Phoenix police officers of the bloodied crime scene at 9:45 a.m. Saturday when the neighbor said the suspect answered the door naked, authorities said…. The unidentified 43-year-old had apparently amputated his left arm and gouged out his right eye, the neighbor saw before backing away….“He had been severely injured. It appears he had self-amputated his left arm from below the elbow,” Sgt. Trent Crump told The Daily Tulip…. It appears Police officers found the suspect in front of the home and the bodies of an unidentified woman and two dogs …. each decapitated … inside the home in the 5100 block of North 13th Place… Sometimes I just cannot believe that people can be so cruel…

Like the Detroit woman with no remorse for killing two of her four children and stuffing the bodies in a home freezer was sentenced Friday to life in prison without parole…. Mitchelle Blair was charged, convicted and sentenced in less than four months, since an eviction crew discovered the children’s bodies in the freezer in March…. They had been stored there for a few years. She pleaded guilty in June to first-degree murder…. Blair killed her 13-year-old daughter, Stoni, in 2013 and 9-year-old son, Stephen, in 2012. She claims they had sexually abused a sibling, though she didn’t witness the alleged assaults and never reported anything to police… Prosecutor Carin Goldfarb said there was no evidence of sexual assault…. How can someone do that to children they gave life too?? ……….

And Finally some of the pages and stories I read to provide you with news that you seem to have missed Gentle Reader, make me think, “What did they have in mind when they passed that law?” Do you recall the Far-right Norwegian mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik .. well he has won a place at a university in the European country…. Breivik, who killed 77 people on a politically motivated murderous rampage in 2011, will study political science at the University of Oslo, reports the BBC…. They also assure us He will have no contact with staff or students and will study from his cell….. Mr. Breivik, 38, was sentenced to 21 years in jail for carrying out Norway’s worst massacre since World War II…. His sentence can be extended if it is considered that he remains a danger to society….. Breivik said he was acting against a Marxist-Islamic takeover of Europe…. Inmates in Norway have a right to pursue higher education…. It would seem to me that they are adding fuel to this appalling persons fire, hardly the way to control his deviant thoughts….and this despicable person has three cells with adjoining doors, one to sleep in, one to read and study in and a third to exercise and workout in… 
So Gentle Reader those are some of the news pieces I looked at the other’s I will file under Not for public consumption… So That’s the news some now you know…

Well Gentle Reader I hope you enjoyed our look at the news from 2016 from around the world this, Wednesday morning… …

Our Tulips today are called Rembrandt and they are certainly a work of art..”Old School” of course…

A Sincere Thank You for your company and Thank You for your likes and comments I love them and always try to reply, so please keep them coming, it’s always good fun, As is my custom, I will go and get myself another mug of “Colombian” Coffee and wish you a safe Wednesday 26th July 2017 from my home on the southern coast of Spain, where the blue waters of the Alboran Sea washes the coast of Africa and Europe and the smell of the night blooming Jasmine and Honeysuckle fills the air…and a crazy old guy and his dog Bella go out for a walk at 4:00 am…on the streets of Estepona…

All good stuff….But remember it’s a dangerous world we live in

Be safe out there…
