Here’s a few little known facts that may rock your world!…..or maybe just your appetite. So, I’m sure you may have noticed a familar face that has been featured in the past few Wendy’s commercials. The spokesperson for these delicious Jr. Bacon cheeseburgers, with a frosty milkshake has been Wendy’s very own Wendy Thomas, daughter of Dave Tomas, founder of Wendy’s. Since Dave Thomas passed in 2002, Wendy Thomas born Melinda Lou “Wendy” Morse has been appearing in Wendy’s ads since November, 2010. Being the fourth child of dave Thomas, grew up attending the University of Florida and graduated with a degree in consumerism. Since the, she has moved to texas with her siblings and owns 30 Wendy’s restaurants to date.
Her new ad campaign for Wendy’s as of 2012 is “That’s Wendy’s Way” emphasizing the quality of ingredients used to make those delicious old fashioned burgers we love so much along with the healthy salads and more. However, with Wendy Thomas featured on just about every to-go bag, fry container,fountain cup followed by the signs outside the restaurant, it kind of makes you wonder what is Wendy Thomas’ favorite meal to order. According to Parade.com Wendy Thomas’ favorite meal to order is a single cheeseburger, baked potato, and a Diet Coke. (2012).

So as we were all watching the highly anticipated lights to come back on after a power surge problem during the Superbowl XLVII, we reflected on the game’s highlights so far.
Beyonce Knowles stunned the audience with her awesome halftime show performance (In my opinion) ! The part I admired most was a reuniting with previous group members Kelly and Michele from their group Destiny’s child. This trio made a great comeback with a shocking entrance of exploding from the bottom of the stage like Michael Jackson’s intro in Bucharest during his Dangerous tour.
It has been said that Beyonce might very well be the the next Michael Jackson. Due to her record of outstanding contributions in musical stardom this may be very much true.
However, there is one thing that just won’t go away when it comes to superstars such as Beyonce that are just too good to be true to some people. That is, the accusations of these stars being led by a secret society known as the Illuminati.
It seems that conspiracy theorists just can’t accept the fact that if you work hard and dedicate your life to your innate passions that you can be successful. There always has to be some attribution to evil superpowers that manipulate the minds of music moguls and entertainers.
I don’t think Beyonce is a Satan worshiper. I think that she’s simply an example of what the American dream looks like. She is a role model to aspiring singers all over the world.
These theorists attribute this symbol to a pyramid symbol which matches the “all seeing eye” that Illuminati symbolism comes from.

The courage of “The band that played on”
Did you know?
We are all aware of the tragic story of the 1912’s largest known ship liner known as Titanic that sank due to an fatal iceberg. Since it’s sinking the ship still lays to rest tombed in the North Atlantic ocean. Over 200 artifacts have been pulled but the ship itself is slowly dissolving and deteriorating in the mud 2 ½ miles on the ocean floor.
The 1997 Hollywood hit Titanic starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet features a fictional story of two on board passengers that fall in love as they fight the soon to be destruction of the ship liner. However, even though the story of this romantic couple is fictional, other parts of the movie besides the sinking of the ship is very much true.
Did you know that the band that was featured on the movie Titanic really existed?
Not only that but they are considered one of the most famous bands in the world for really playing music as the Titanic was sinking. Their purpose was to keep the passengers on board from panicking while they played. The irony of this was that the musicians weren’t even employed by the White Star Line. There were eight musicians and none of them survived the tragedy.
Violinist Wallace Hartley was the courageous leader of the group.
It has been noted that the last song they played was the hymn ‘Nearer, My God, to Thee’ . Read more about this phenomenal band by reading Steve Turner’s “The Band That Played On.”
How hard should one be on their kids?
Joe Jackson (Father of the great musical entertainer Michael Jackson) speaks on why he feels that parents today are “too soft” on their kids. He mentions some of the greatest offspring that rose into stardom due to their tough and disciplined upbringing. Some include Tiger Woods, Beyonce Knowles, Venus and Serena Williams, and of course his son Michael Jackson. Although all of these athletes and entertainers grew up despising their fathers or disconnecting from him completely, they can not deny that the extra push during their upbringing paid off.
Of course you have to be tough on your kids growing up in an area like Gary, Indiana, Joe suggests. He stated that in an area that is filled with gangs while parents have to work long hours, you have to persist in making sure your kids remain out of trouble. Punishing them by beating them with rods makes the kids remember not to ever do wrongful behavior again.

“Albany State, we dearly love you
who’s wall’s are inscribed with knowledge so true
so solidly build on this foundation
a union of work and inspiration
teacher for those who strive for success
to thee we give praises above all the rest…”

Keep up the good work, if only for a while, if only for the twinkling of a tiny galaxy.
