    I had to laugh when I saw this. This, folks, is the way a call history is accessed on the very cell phone BC had, The Samsung BlackJack II ...the phone he "needed help to figure out how to get to his call history/log" before he could show police.

    The CA jury is a lot different than NCs jury. They just sent a note that they have no issue working on memorial day and actually prefer to.

    And what does that have to do with the similar themes raised by the defense team?

    I am only talking about defense themes. Not about jury makeup, not defendant's stories.

    BTW, this jury is sequestered, thus a long weekend is a waste to them since they are stuck @ a hotel and not with their families @ home.

    It has nothing to do with your observations.

    My list on the C.A. defense came directly from their statements yesterday. Go back and listen to the defense opening. I'm not talking about the claim of molestation, I'm talking about the things Baez said about L.E., Roy Kronk, & 'magic' science. He used very typical themes to try and paint the picture that everyone decided to go after his client and did not investigate 'what else' was going on that might lead L.E. in a different direction and to a different conclusion. He claimed evidence was moved/altered. I wrote it down as he was talking because he was throwing everything against the wall. He mentioned more things than BC's defense, but he did use some of those sames themes as BC's lawyers.
    Mad74 -- I did not see the state's opening remarks, but I was able to see the defense give their opening. I did get the feeling of, "here we go again" with their remarks about LE and the general incompetence of some of the main characters in the case. But what can one do with such a client? This defense also has a weak case, IMO, and is trying to help a similar client: "a l**** l*** who lies," IMHO.

    Now isn't that special?

    Lawsy - Your avatar!!! I knew it!!!

    I thought that was a likeness of Nancy and J !!! -- Oh, my, what beauty and feeling and just plain talent in your work -- NC is with us again through it, and is with her good, good friend, J, Do any of Nancy's folks know about this? Are you a part of the Butterfly effort? If not, you must share it with them. (You certainly do not have to answer these questions here.) I am just blown away by the beauty and love in the rendering. I, who can't draw a decent circle or stick-man. Let me stop -- it's just beautiful -- please take pride in this wonderful tribute to them both and to all of the folks that made Nancy happy and who will always love and miss her.

    Yes! I sent the framed original watercolor to Jess. I did not know them, nor any of the family or butterfly effort, but I wanted to send Jess a thank you, if you will, a real gesture of love. Nancy's spirit is powerful and she has been "in my head" and I have listened to her. I am deeply grateful. Thank you for your kind words, borndem.

    See post #57 on the appeal info. (page 3) for the written tribute, which could have been written to any of Nancy's friends and loved ones who took a stand on her behalf. It is with great honor that I participated in this process. Friendship comes in many forms, and I feel I have a friend in Nancy. Being an artist, I accept inspiration however it shows up. It can just be a "feeling", and I listen. I am deeply grateful.

    In the beautiful words of Elizabeth Smart, "By lifting those around you, you end up lifting yourself as well."

    I don't need to look up your verbal tribute -- I remember it & how elegant and eloquent it was.

    Yes, sometimes inspiration comes from admiration, empathy, strong dislike, odors (our most evocative sense, I have read), identification, or simply a "feeling" that is impossible or difficult to describe. You draw it; I write about it. In this case, you did both. We thank you.

    I am so glad you did pass your work on to J, and I'm sure she was overcome and soon in tears. An original piece of love-art. Awe inspiring, full of wonder, and irreplaceable. Wow.

    Occasionally, Nancy's name comes up here typed in red.....just for a little while and then disappears...do you see that borndem, or is that another one of those unexplainable events? I see it in posts that are already written, some by me, some by others. by the way, I don't believe in co-inky-dinks...and I'll just say my question to you is rhetorical and need not be answered. Fair enough?

    No, I don't see her name in red -- I do not have that kind of "vision." That is a gift that I was not given -- what I "see" (but only in my mind) is angel's wings -- this is an inspiration from the Angel of Bethesda in NY's Central Park.








    [These pictures are from Wikipedia, under "Angel of Bethesda"]


    As you probably know, it is the famous Bethesda Fountain, designed by Emma Stebbins in 1878 and presented in 1883. She was the first woman to get a commission from the City of New York for a major work of art. Her inspiration came from John 5. (Please don't think I am trying to preach here; I am simply citing these verses since they provided Stebbins with her inspiration for the work.)

    The angel about is 8 ft. tall, BTW. She is breath-taking. Somehow my mind invokes her -- I never know when it will happen...

    John 5:1 After this there was a feast of the Jews; and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
    2 Now there is at Jerusalem by the sheep market a pool, which is called in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda, having five porches.
    3 In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind, halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the water.
    4 For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had.
    5 And a certain man was there, which had an infirmity thirty and eight years.
    6 When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, he saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole?
    7 The impotent man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when the water is troubled, to put me into the pool: but while I am coming, another steppeth down before me.
    8 Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.
    9 And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked: and on the same day was the sabbath.

    Well anyway, there it is, Lawsy.

    I am so deeply grateful

    Love life's mysteries and the joy of listening deeply to hear whisperings, or if so lucky, see footprints, so to speak.
    Last night, I silently said Nancy's name while putting my son to sleep, and my son piped up and said, "here's a sign" and I opened my eyes, and he was giving me the "I love you" in sign language. I smiled and thanked my lucky stars. No co-inky-dinks here.
