Juicy Jawns: Gritty is Officially On the "Tiger King" Bandwagon

PHILLY IS NOW IN THE “COMMUNITY SPREAD” PHASE OF COVID-19 SO IN AN EFFORT TO STOP PEOPLE FROM GETTING CLOSE AND GATHERING IN GROUPS, PHILADELPHIA HAS STARTED TAKING DOWN BASKETBALL RIMS AT POPULAR PARKS. IN ADDITION, MAYOR JIM KENNEY SAID, “I DON’T WANT TO BACKTRACK ON CLOSING STREETS AND OPENING TRAILS...BUT THE MORE YOU CAN STAY HOME, THE BETTER YOU’RE SERVING YOUR FELLOW PHILADELPHIANS.”

WE ALREADY KNOW THAT IN AN UPCOMING LIMITED TV SERIES, SNL’S KATE MCKINNON WILL PLAY CAROL BASKIN, THE RIVAL OF THE TIGER KING IN THE NETFLIX DOCUMENTARY. BUT DAX SHEPHERD AND ED NORTON ARE IN A LIGHTHEARTED FEUD ABOUT WHO WILL PLAY JOE EXOTIC HIMSELF. DAVID SPADE IS ALSO A POPULAR OPTION.

JERSEY IS ONE OF ONLY TWO STATES THAT DOESN'T HAVE SELF-SERVE GAS PUMPING. OREGON IS THE OTHER STATE AND ALTHOUGH THEY’VE TEMPORARILY LIFTED THE PRACTICE, JERSEY GOVERNOR PHIL MURPHY TWEETED THIS:

SOME RETAILERS IN PHILLY, MANY IN CENTER CITY, HAVE STARTED BOARDING UP THEIR STOREFRONTS. BUSINESS OWNERS FEAR AS THIS LOCKDOWN CONTINUES, POSSIBLE LOOTING WILL BEGIN, SO CLOTHING AND FURNITURE STORES, RESTAURANTS, LIQUOR STORES AND MORE LOOK AS IF THEY WERE DOWN THE SHORE AND A HURRICANE WAS COMING.

SHAQUILLE O’NEAL IS RESPONDED ON HIS PODCAST TO BACKLASH BECAUSE HE WENT TO AND WAS SHOWN AT THE GW ZOO, PROFILED IN NETFLIX’S TIGER KING DOCUMENTARY.

AND IF YOU’RE RUNNING OUT OF SWEET SNACKS AT HOME, GIRL SCOUT COOKIES ARE NOW DELIVERING. GO TO GIRLSCOUTS.ORG, ORDER YOUR THIN MINTS AND MORE ONLINE, AND GET THEM SHIPPED RIGHT TO YOUR DOOR OR...SEND SOME TO LOCAL FRONTLINE WORKERS AS A THANK YOU! (JUST REMEMBER TO THROW OUT THE CARDBOARD BOXES).

THE WHITE HOUSE HAS APPROVED GOVERNOR TOM WOLF’S REQUEST TO DECLARE PENNSYLVANIA A DISASTER AREA. WHAT THAT MEANS IS, FEDERAL FUNDING WILL BE AVAILABLE TO LOCAL GOVERNMENTS AND CERTAIN NON-PROFITS FOR EMERGENCY PROTECTIVE MEASURES. ADDITIONALLY, ALL SCHOOLS AND NON-ESSENTIAL BUSINESSES ARE TO REMAIN CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. MEANWHILE PENNSYLVANIA’S UNEMPLOYMENT DIVISION STRUGGLES TO HANDLE OVER 830,000 CLAIMS, WHICH IS MORE THAN ALL OF 2019.

DRAKE JUST SHARED A BUNCH OF FAMILY PHOTOS ON INSTAGRAM WITH A REALLY LONG INSPIRATIONAL MESSAGE... SEVERAL PICS ARE OF DRAKE’S ADORABLE TWO YEAR OLD SON ADONIS WITH BRIGHT BLUE EYES AND A HEAD FULL OF BLOND CURLS.

What is most important for you right now is to connect to your own inner light. This will create the biggest opening of all. Trust that you have all of the power within to make this happen, and in order to do that connect to the people and things that bring you a lot of joy. When the mind starts to move into overthinking or fear, shift your attention right away to something bright. It doesn’t matter what has happened in the past or what is happening around us now, you can always make the choice to break free of the wheel of suffering and panic and open up to your own light. We are powerful manifestors , so once you make the choice in the moment to shift your awareness to something good, it will show you in your reality. Be conscious, especially right now of fears coming in from others, and recognize that not everything should be held by you. Laughter is your best medicine, but tears can also be a powerful release. Let go of any judgment you may have around that. Remember that you are never alone, and if you need to be reminded of that ask for support and it will show up. Everything comes down to intention, and even though there are conflicting energies circling around us you must KNOW...It will rebuild. But in order for that to happen, you have to do exactly that. Trust. You have the biggest heart and that is your greatest gift. It’s impossible to always control your surroundings, but when you shift the focus to how you want to feel, everything will conspire to assist you. I love and miss my beautiful family and friends and I can’t wait for the joyful day when we are all able to reunite. Until then please keep your lights on. --
