About My Blog.

Welcome! This is "Catatonic Digressions."
Most readers don't understand my blog's title. It's an old inside joke from a forum long gone. I was going to change it, but since it's been "confusing" for so long, I decided to leave it. Don't worry about what it means, the content of the blog is what matters...or not

Unfortunately, my blog isn't what I set out for it to be. A sick woman in Orleans, MA began stalking me in 2007 on Myspace. Since that time, this woman obsessed over me to the point of having the police come to her home and threaten to confiscate her laptop. She is a racist and anti-Semite.I could no longer blog freely, knowing this nutbag was just going to take the photos I'd post and put them on a child exploitation website.

This site is only up for the information it has that others might need to know about. That information is about "Seal Shepherd" aka Michael McDade, Kat McAboy aka Marilyn McAboy and Veronika Hompo, a self-proclaimed Nazi.

I'm a real person. I'm real and I don't pretend to be someone I'm not. After years of putting up with online abuse by manipulative, pathological liars, attention whores or narcissists, I've had it. Don't bother me with pathetic drama. I have no time for these types of people and their need to absorb others' time and attention.

This blog is no longer used. I've retired it for the most part unless something very important comes up.

Animal rights Book: ARB Is Back On The Social Curcuit

Animal rights Book: ARB Is Back On The Social Curcuit:

ARB Is Back On The Social Curcuit

ARB was approached by the administrators of the WAAR Social Network and NewAR Online with the idea of joining together onto one social network site as a dedicated online animal rights hub. I thought about it since I wasnt so sure about going back to the social network situation but thought it would be largely beneficial to both the animals and the movement, somewhere we can all concentrate our online operations in one place.

The ARB Blog will remain as will the NewAR forum. We hope you will join us at the hub and look forward to hosting some great guest chats, interviews, fun events as well as serious debates. Each site is only as good as its members and followers so really the admins can only do so much, what this online social hub will do is really up to you.

I look forward to seeing any ARB followers, past or present over there :)

cafe blossom in nyc

awesome vegan news and reviews

cafe blossom in nyc
cafe blossom in nyc by quarrygirl
NYC, more restaurants (not LA) by quarrygirl

on our recent trip to nyc, we ate at our fair share of vegan restaurants and a really damn good one was cafe blossom. there are a few blossom locations in manhattan, but we ate at the up town restaurant on the recommendation from vegan beauty review.

seitan skewers: flame grilled seitan in a bbq sauce served with jicama slaw. $8

we started with an order of seitan skewers, which were fantastic. thick wheat meat mixed up with a tangy yet not too sweet sauce, served with a refreshing side of jicama slaw. we polished them right off. a+!

southern seitan sandwich: spiced seitan with caramelized onions, avocado and chipotle aioli on foccacia bread. $14
we also shared the southern seitan sandwich with an order of fries. the sandwich was good, but from the description i thought it would be much better. overall it was a little dry and just didn’t hold up to the awesomeness of the bacon cheeseburger. the fries were excellent though, long thin and crispy—some of the best i’ve had in a while.

although the food was on point for the most part, our service was a bit slow. the place wasn’t busy, and we had to go find our server and ask for the check because we’d been sitting there for thirty minutes. oh well, maybe they were just having an off day. either way, i will definitely be back next time i’m in nyc for some more skewers and a bacon cheeseburger.

RMDHA got in his Douche Canoe and fled to ALASKA!

I don't even have to worry about the use of this douchebag's real name here, because he used his favorite pseudonym here:
I told you to go and you did! Ha ha ha! 

I remember your lame call three days after this Facebook post. "Happy Valentine's Day, Babe." Anyone want to guess just how many Valentine's Day calls he had to make that day and night?


Teddy was and still is the Ultimate Liar. He's currently trying to play someone, and he thinks he's actually fooling them. What a dumb ass!

Gee, see what it says? It takes a REAL MAN to admit he's wrong. (That's one reason why you can't have the mug, Teddy! LOL, oh yes, *BURN!*) "RMDHA" is incapable of doing that, so no, he is NOT a real man. As you already know, he seems to not care much for cats anymore, either. He abandoned them for over a month while he lived in "Pebbles" home, only going to see the once because his bitch sister called and demanded he come by. She then "had enough of his shit," and asked her best friend Amy to take the cats to the pound, and the pound turned out to be a high-kill "shelter" that my friends and I had to go through hell to locate to rescue the poor, innocent cats. Some of the cats were "lost" in the chaos.

The flier we emailed and posted all over the internet when the cats were missing, and Teddy's sister refused to tell us where she had her friend dump them. She did actually threaten me and my animal rights friends, but she's all mouth. I kept asking her to just allow me to come get them and hold onto them; foster them or adopt them (which Teddy had asked me to do long ago, before this incident, God forbid anything should happen to him) and she still said no! I said why dump them at a shelter when I can come put them in a house with my cats, and take care of them? She claimed they were going to "a nice lady" and then told me to stop asking, she'd made up her mind, and then she said she'd call the police. Well, there was no "nice lady..."

We located the cats and the creep got them back. They were at a high-kill shelter in Paterson NJ, and if I'd not sent photos of Jinxy and Mishu to all of the different agencies in NJ, they would've been killed. My photos and emails tipped off a group called START that rescues cats. They put two and two together, emailed me back and let me know that they had just "turned away a rather chunky girl who tried to give us two cats that look just like the cats in your photos. She was taking them to Paterson, so call over there fast. Paterson is a kill shelter."

The wonderful woman (HAHAHA NOT!) in Alaska paid for them to be cared for until she arrived in NJ and took them back with her, to her home. THEY ARE SAFE, THEY ARE LOVED! BTW, "MizzFabz"... did you have a good laugh that day with Jay-D and your mom? Yes, I'm talking about the day Keke Reaves says you all stood out front with MY belongings in cartons (for the trash) and called me cruel names and said some really rude things about me. Me, the one who was practically taking care of your brother, especially mentally! Well, newsflash bitch: Teddy LIED to all of you.  Another thing, you fat oxy-popping slob; I was at the house more times than you know. He lied about everything. Don't ever step out of line with me again. Keke lied too. Keke has some serious mental issues. You know Teddy and Keke spent 10 years beating the crap out of each other? Then he came home to NJ and conveniently forgot to tell me she existed and she told you and your family bullshit stories, followed by turning around and telling me dozens of stories about you and your siblings.
p.s. I was told you party with oxy's like Pebbles does. I was told you and Pebbles used to be best friends and both did oxycontin and drank until you were both obliterated. Teddy told stories like this all the time. Keke told them more them more than he did, though. Keke was the master of stories about you. 

"Real Men Don't Hurt Animals" — but this guy sure did, for over two years. And no, he never liberated any animals. He told everyone this amazing, shocking tale of liberating animals in Alaska, and leaving behind a partial print... leading the feds knocking on his door. A story of being a lone ALF member. A fabricated story that to this day, I suspect he might believe he really did. Not fact. He was asked to leave and taken to the airport, sent back to Jersey. If he told you that he did liberate animals, it was to woo you because you were probably a vegan and he wanted to try to get into your pants. He never did anything but sit at the computer and try to con women, handfuls of them all across the United States, for all the years he was in Alaska. Once tossed back to New Jersey, he decided to see who he could really take advantage of. There are many women willing to step forward and tell their story. This guy is one to avoid. He's a manipulative liar (a very good liar, as he's trained his entire life and comes from a family of liars), and if you've read this far and you know him — and you're in denial and you're shocked and appalled — you need to keep reading, because this is not the last of it. There will be more.

Yes, even to you, Jessica. I know you're in shock, but he played you like a fiddle, too. Feel free to send your sob story in as well. There's been a few women who privately emailed me their "drama" with this creep, and most are married with children. Feel free to share. No last names will be used. He was playing YOU while playing me, and three others we have found so far. Still think he's worth your attention? He's not interested in you, just interested in what he can gain from destroying you... and your family.

UPDATE 9.22.2010: Jessica. Do you clearly understand English? I seem to think not. If you can't really understand English, I'll have a Puerto Rican translate the facts for you, because you are in the dark like a mushroom, if you grasp that hint.

YES, IT'S ALL TRUE. HE IS A BIPOLAR NARCISSIST (AND DIAGNOSED AS WORSE), AND "THE SIZE OF HIS DICK" HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH IT. HE IS SIMPLY AN ASSHOLE UNDERNEATH THE SURFACE. He does a fabulous job fooling everyone, even the most cautious of people. He does appear to be a very funny, friendly and sincere person — until you get to really know him. He's a charmer, there's no doubt, but the "other side" eventually comes through. His life is well-laid out, like a novel with chapter after chapter of drama, loss, hurt, anger, struggles, neglect, abandonment, misfortune, sexual escapades galore... but the stories become too rehearsed. All is well, until that day comes that he suspects you're on to him. Until you unearth the first dark secret and find out it's a lie. Once the first lie unfolds, the entire facade crumbles, and he runs, runs as fast as he can, to escape the truth and to escape the reality.

Teddy is a manipulative, compulsive liar. He's lied so much that he seems to believe some of his most disturbing lies. If you want to keep your little image of love as it is and not accept the truth, that's up to you. The rest of us know the truth. He does not know what love is. He doesn't know how to love or what being in love is. He only knows how to get attention for himself and make himself feel good — stroke his own ego — and to him, this is enough. No one is a worthy woman. No one is a good woman. He calls all women he has relationships with, friendships or romances — whores. Ask him yourself. He has used the word "whore" more in his life than he has used the word "love." He does not care about anyone or anything. He is void. He is empty. He cannot feel. He only knows how to lie and how to destroy friendships and any semblance of relationships he comes close to.

Beware if you have a little child or children. Fabrizio/Teddy expressed to numerous people that he had a serious desire to "put a baby in an oven and cook it" and no, I don't mean he wanted to knock someone up. He literally said he wanted to go out and steal someone's infant and put it into his oven at home and cook it "to see how it would taste."

No shit.

Lying like crazy. What was the point, Teddy? Why LIE?

Sauvé bullshitter!

(emailed to Jessica) Been there done that... can you say CONTROL FREAK?
Remember that YOU ARE THE ONLY ONE, NO ONE ELSE — sure.
(emailed to Jessica) There's the typical TEDDY, exploiting your emotions!

"I love you more.!!!" How many times did EVERYONE hear or read that line?

UPDATE 9.30.2010: Jessica. You were obviously a victim of Fabrizio's smooth talk within the last year, and it's clear he messed with your head, but none of it was real. He did it to many women. He was emailing, messaging on Facebook and calling many women at the same time, saying the very same things he told you.

I see you downloading the pictures of him from this blog. My God, Jessica, do you want all the fucking images I have of this self-absorbed, inconsiderate person? He does NOT care about you. Can't you see that? If he did, don't you think things would be a lot different? You were just a game, just like every woman who was ever in his life. EVERY WOMAN. That means all the women he ever had any type of relationship with. None meant anything to him, though he sure pretended they did, until he was tired of them or they realized what he really was. Right now, this very moment, he thinks he's got a couple of women fooled. Maybe more. Trust me, the fool is HIM. We're all playing stupid. 
Keep your family together and if things are not working, make change for your children, NOT for this liar. He tells no truths. It's all to feed his ego. He thinks all women are in love with him to the point of obsession. That would include you. Show him you're not his puppet. 

If you or any other woman wants to lose everything or risk emotional distress over this person who pretends or pretended to give a shit, then go ahead. You'll learn one day he carefully words his emails, letters and phone conversations so he seems like the wonderful, caring and supportive "MAN OF THE YEAR." He's far from that. He's a liar, a creep and has NO respect for anyone at all. He talks about everybody behind their backs. You included. RMDHA is a FRAUD. He pretends to be this awesome, fun, caring guy who is an animal rights activist, but he really is a jobless loser that preys on women, uses them, then does his best to hurt them, to degrade them and pretend they never existed in his life while he goes around lying about his entire life, his actions, his relations and more. He's despicable. He doesn't respect women at all — not even his own mother. To him, all women at whores and all women are just "to fuck" and he thinks, in his mind, he's "not a one woman man," but the truth is, what woman would deal with this penniless, useless dude who can't even please a women in bed? Sorry, but no real woman! Not even the skanky whore who he popped pills and ran about getting drunk with was able to take his shit for long. She tossed his ass to the curb after a few weeks. LEARN, people! You deal with this guy and he'll eventually turn on you, threaten you and try to have you believe you're the one who is "bipolar!"

NOTE: I don't care if my name is here, because I have nothing to hide. He does.

Last Year on 9.9.09… A "Tribute" to RMDHA.

I posted this.

To the women poking around and looking for this "man," I suggest you don't walk, but run as far as you can from him. This man is a narcissist. I'm not speaking about your average narcissist either; R.M.D.H.A. is dangerously mentally ill, and loves to take advantage of women. 

He is possibly woo'ing you right now. Maybe he sent you emails last year, or a few months ago. Maybe it was winter, and he blew you off all summer long. Well, winter's coming and don't fall into the trap.

This is what "Real Men Don't Hurt Animals" is really about. It's All About Him.

That's him: the attention-seeking man-whore, the manipulator, the compulsive liar. He'll tell you you're the only one for him, while he's emailing you those words from another woman's laptop. He'll ask you to leave your husband for him. He loves only you and always has. Do you buy it?

I've a lot to teach you if you do.

www.myspace.com/rmdha doesn't exist anymore. 

If he was a REAL MAN, he'd not manipulate, use and exploit people — women mostly — and then talk so negatively about them, all of them, after he has destroyed the friendship or relationship. There's a handful of women in the screenshot above, and all of them, not some, but all, were lied to for this man's personal gain of ego-stroking and attention. If he was a REAL MAN, he'd not have abandoned and neglected all his cats when he decided in late May of this year to not just move out of his mother's home, but move in with a known whore that does drugs. The cats suffered, and therefor a "real man" he is not. He never went to feed them, to freshen their water dish or to clean their litter box. That's unfair... he did change the litter box, one time, after his sister called him at this pill-popping skank's place and told him to do something. (The latter regarding the filthy whore is not libel; she lost her child to CPS, who handed her over to her father, because of her unsavory behavior. That means she was and still is a drugging, drinking whore... with a few medical issues, *winky-winky* so guys, best be on thy way to la clinicia.)

JASMINE did not deserve abandonment.

JASMINE, may you be in a loving home! 

He lost a beautiful senior cat named Jasmine, and we can only hope and pray that Jasmine found a better home, a home with someone that loves her enough to take care of her. The rest? I had to rescue with the help of my W.A.A.R.ior sisters from a high-kill pound, where they were dumped like trash by his sister's best friend. Real Men Don't Hurt Animals? Well, I'd say he lost the title and the respect of many when he first began eating meat — McDonald's with "Pebbles" for instance — the very thing he was so against on Myspace and on Facebook, the "pro-veg*n" man who turned many an omnivore veg*n. (veg*n means vegan or vegetarian in this blog) Why it even is mentioned? This psycho made such a huge deal about it with everyone, even while he himself was sneaking around eating pizza and pork patties — a complete hypocrite. Then the title had to be revoked when he turned his back on his own cats, neglecting them and leaving them to fend for themselves. 

You, too, will be left to fend for yourself after he's had a part in your life.

Teddy, I see you snooping about. *waves hello*
When you come back to NJ, let's do lunch. LMAO

I thought it was pretty funny that you gave the mug to Keke Reaves, Teddy!
EDIT: Keke, who is actually the man in the relationship, you or Fabrizio?

RMDHA got in his Douche Canoe and fled to ALASKA!

Sorry, Teddy, but like you said, "The cat's out the bag."

Amy Burt Reveals the TRUTH.

Amy Burt Reveals THE TRUTH.


It is time for me to reveal the truth about my life.  Its time for me to write the horrid details of the last year and half.  I have been delaying for months now.  Its finally over.  Its worse than ever before.  My ex, Donald Burt Junior ,  his attorney, Matt Malone, and the Judge, Dan Mike Birdare some of the most corrupt, deceitful, and cruel people on the planet.  This is one blog post that will not come down.  This is the blog post that reveals everything.  Its long and tedious.  I hope that folks can keep up with it.  My closest friends still have a hard time believing this story.  If they did not know me, they would blown me off as a liar.  Its easy  to think that way.

Keep in mind that my 
ex  is and will be for a while a drunk.  He is not your typical drunk.  He has to keep a buzz which means he drinks all day long.  Just enough to feel high.  He has been like this for the last six to seven years.  One of my high school friends was a witness to him drinking and driving. It is standard practice on the Waggoner Ranch for all of the cowboys to drink and drive.  It is standard to get drunk regularly.   I can't presume to know what he is doing now in his home but I know how he was with me and the girls while I lived there.  The last couple of years my ex turned mean.  If he did not like supper, no matter who cooked it, the dinner plate went flying.  Food flying everywhere.  The plate breaking against the wall.  I would clean it up as that forever dutiful wife.   I had to endure being criticized for breathing.  I had to endure being ridiculed.  I had to endure being told that I was not good enough.  It didn't matter how hard I tried.  I gave it 110% especially in the last six months.  He had shoved me to the ground, kicked me and raked spurs over my legs often leaving bruises.  He escalated that one time by rubbing my face into the rug.  I had rug burns on my face.  By November, I realized that he was not going to change.  He was going to continue to blame me for the ex wives and their leaving.  He was going to continue to blame me for leaving him the first time and later drawing up divorce papers. He fails to realize that I had reasons, valid reasons.  I own that.

My ex has this tendency to put others ahead of his own family.  That is just the way he is.  First time that he did it was when we lived in Robert Lee Texas.  That was first time that I left him.  He was drinking a little too much even then.  He put another family before his own daughter.   I was in accident where I hit a patch of black ice.  I hit the fence.  The passenger side window shattered.  Dakota and I ended up going to the ER in San Angelo to make sure no glass got into her eyes.  I called the boss and let them know what happened along with them that I was without a vehicle.  I waited and waited.  Finally my baby sitter found and called me.  She came to the ER and picked us up.  I called the boss again and let them know where we were at.  This time we had gone to a convenience store to wait closest to the highway that they would be coming in on.   I waited and waited.  I called and left messages.  My baby sitter that we needed something to eat.   We went to her place.  I called and left a message again.  I waited and waited.  Finally I offered to give her five bucks for gas.  She took me home.  When he got home, I was mad.  I was beyond mad.  He had not bothered to check and see if we were okay.  He had not bothered to let me know what was going on.  In fact, neither did the boss.  His excuse was that the boss would not let him go.  I was also working nine hours a day with a lunch plus driving an hour one way.  I was also expected to maintain  our home.  So I was working full time along with running our daughter to day care and doing my best to keep a clean house.  Guess which job fell to the way side?  The house.  I spent quite a bit of my marriage working.  I also saw to it that our kids had insurance or medicaid throughout most of our marriage.  In fact, I am still doing it today.

There was one instance where I filled out the paperwork for medicaid.  He did not want the state seeing all of his income so he refused to give them his bank statements.  We were subsequently denied but yet somehow it was my fault.  When I moved back up here forced by the judge in order to get custody back of my children according to the judge, I had to tell the Health and Human Services people that he had custody.  They shut down their medicaid and my foodstamps.   He got mad at me and wanted to tell the judge.  I told him specifically if I had not done that, I would have gone to jail.  That is something that he would have loved.  He consistently pushes me to make decisions which are in direct violation of the judge's orders.  I have long learned that he lies and wants me to screw up.

Then the ex started devoting too much time with this family.  Leaving me and Dakota to fend for ourselves.  I am not a jealous or insecure person.  I know when I am being shut out.  It got really bad.  In fact, their daughter ended up getting a divorce around Christmas time.  When I asked him about it, he said that since he had been through it, he had to comfort her.  That comfort led to a kiss in front of our home with my daughter and I watching him.  I left.  Here he was stepping into dangerous waters, placing another family above his own, dumping all of the family work load on me and cheating.  He also made a horrible comment that if I did not give him "some" that he would find someone who would.  I guess being physically worn out and sick at times was not a good enough reason to not have sex.   Yet I am the one to blame.  Go figure.

After family counseling through a pastor and his wife, we managed to work it through.  Fast forward several years later in Oklahoma, the situation began repeating itself.  I was working for the postal service working 45 plus hours a week.  I was expected to keep house, take care of girls whenever they needed it, support him and his wild ideas about trucks ( I spent a week of vacation in an auto parts store), and work a full time job.   I got angry again.  Sex had gotten forced upon me numerous times.  I was tired and worn out but yet I had to give him what he wanted.  I did not have any choice.  It was not something that I enjoyed.  It was forced.   There was no romance and gentle treatment with the sex either.

Again we worked it out.  Now I should have stayed in Oklahoma.  I should have walked away then.  I had a great job with my own route.  Customers and friends who supported me.  I had what I needed to make an honest go of it in Oklahoma.  Nope I chose to follow my ex to this God forsaken part of Texas.  I mean that.  It is filled with evil.  I saw my ex change into a man that lost all moral turpitude, a drunk, a cheater, and an abusive man to not just me but our daughters.

I don't know how many times that I defended the honor of him and our eldest daughter.    I don't know how many times that I stood beside him when the ranch folks were berating him.  The ranch folks even called him the village idiot.  What he fails to realize is that even with our divorce, he is STILL an outsider.  Nothing he can do will ever change that.  They will still snicker behind his back.  They will still be cruel to him and our daughters.  They laugh at him because 
he has been divorced now FIVE times . I have only been married once.  Trust me, I plan on taking my time with my boyfriend now.  I don't want to be married a zillion times by the time that I am in my sixties.

What exactly is cheating?  Is it just in the physical sense as my ex so convincingly told our daughters?  My ex has been emotionally involved with four other women for years now.  One woman has finally moved on and gotten married.  He even suckered me into believing that it was just friendship by using my adoption search against me.  What my ex has done to me is what this woman's ex did to her.  Take the kids from her.   Keep in mind that my ex is the confessed alcoholic, abuser and cheater.  He confessed this on the stand.  When he finally quits that one, he moves onto another one.  In fact, it got so bad that he was calling her ten times a day.  Is that cheating?  I think it is.  He is giving emotional attention to another woman while denying me and his daughters.   He also did this with two other women which one is a current girlfriend.

I remember several times in the last six months that I was with my ex.  Sex was forced.  I also got the feeling that he was not having sex with me but someone else.  Hmmm I wonder now if he was picturing his current girlfriend in our bed.  I have documentation in both CPS paperwork and court paperwork that states he drank, cheated and abused all of us.  His daughters admitted to it as well.  I would spend many a night on the kitchen floor scrubbing it crying my eyes out.  He never even noticed.  I worked very hard but it didn't matter.  His decision was already made.

My ex uses former friends, 
Beth and Dwight Michener , to hack into my email account.  These two people have been reported saying that they have hacked into Electra School District's computer system.  Beth and her daughter have both been reported as saying that they wanted to kill Dwight aka Mitch because he was drinking too much.  They had planned to kill him with replacing rum with Everclear.  Mitch has also attempted suicide three times.  Unfortunately Electra and the ranch is well known for its weirdos.  I did not find out until it was too late.   They used a key logging program that was attached to my ex's profile on friendster.   They hacked into my sister's computer to gain access to my information.  When I left their home and got to my sister's home, I immediately changed my passwords.  That email account was closed on December 20th.  It was reactivated on January 19th using two email accounts to do so.  I have the emails proving that my account was shut down.  Emails that I had written in haste and emotional distraught because he had threatened me were used in a court of law without my consent.  He threatened to take my kids from me, never allow me to see them again and restricting all of us to this area specifically to a county where I would not be able to find work.  That was not presented in court.   They were used without the consent to whom those emails were written.  The judge, Judge Dan Mike Bird, allowed them in as evidence.  This is against the law. There was no court order authorizing them to do this.  Law enforcement was not involved at all in this situation.  There was no subpoenas in this at all.  Funny thing is that every time I turn around, I get a threat or two about child support, the kids, or whatever.  He has even had the girlfriend stalk me a time or two.  He had his mother threaten to put a boot up my ass.  Her words not mine.

Lets discuss 
Judge Dan Mike Bird .  Dan Mike Bird has an interesting past.  He is the former District Attorney in the 46th District Court.  This judge has been married three times and divorced twice.  One of  his marriages ended disastrously for one wife.   She was a social worker at North Texas State Hospital.  She supposedly had an affair with mental patient at the hospital.  She evidently did not keep it quiet.  He used the power of his position to slam his wife.  He did to his wife what my ex has done to me.  He was intentionally cruel to his ex wife.  This story has been repeated to me several times by different folks.  This situation has colored his judgment in all of his decisions.  Many women have lost their children because of this judge and his sexist discrimination.

I found several decisions that he made but were overturned and remanded back to his court.  I also found this 
complaint where he is named in a federal lawsuit.  Scott Auld is an example of a father whose rights were violated.  You can read the court case here .   He was willing to deny the father his rights to access his children after getting out jail.  In fact, CPS was involved because his wife was dealing drugs.  They failed to follow through and consult him.  The judge stated,"It's not going to be the habit of the court to award any kind of visitation rights to somebody coming out of prison, so I'm not approving any visitation rights for Scott Auld. If he wants visitation rights when he gets out of prison, he can come to court and convince me that he should have visitation rights, so that means, Mrs. Spruill, that Scott is not to be around the children when you have them until or unless there is a further court order."  The case was overturned, his right to visit his children restored, and remanded back to Judge Dan Mike Bird for changing his decision.

Another case was with a woman, 
Samantha Bradford,   who CPS was also involved with.  The father had not terminated his rights but CPS was looking to fast track the adoption anyway according to this document.  The judge was awfully quick to terminate her rights.  Typical of him.  Lets look at other unfair decisions.  Roddy Pippin is an example of that.  In fact, a close friend of his has heard several stories where this judge outright gives fathers their children despite the best interests of the children.  He had heard of one case in Quanah.  There was another case with another woman here recently.  I had heard about this one from a nurse.  

With that being said, it is awfully convenient information for my ex's attorney, Matt Malone.  Keep in mind, Matt Malone used these 
emails against me in court to "prove" that I was a liar.  What really happened is that email account had been shut down.  I had forgotten all about those emails.  Honest mistake.  He used this to prove that I was constantly lying when I wasn't.  According to this website , what he did was against the law and against attorney ethics in the state of Texas.  The other interesting issue is that he has met with the judge on numerous occasions without bringing my attorney into the situation.  My ex has also had verbal contact with the judge which he is admitted.  My ex is now singing like a bird about this.  My ex and his attorney can break court room etiquette in a major way that is in direct violation of my rights.  This is commonly known as Ex Parte .  My oldest daughter has mentioned on numerous occasions that both her father and Matt Malone have bragged about his ability to circumvent the law and even break the law without receiving any repercussions.  My ex has also been breaking the judge's orders.  He and I both are not to consume alcohol around the girls.  He and I are not to have members of the opposite sex staying in our home with our children present.  He  has had his girlfriend staying with him for months now.  Here I have been quietly obeying the rules.  He gets to violate them every chance that he gets.  People wonder why I get angry sometimes.  He breaks the rules and I pay the price.

Recently I began dating a really wonderful man.  He and I are taking it slowly.  We are also minding the judge's rules not for the sake of those rules.  We are minding them for our personal reasons.  My boyfriend has a certain moral code.  He is not willing to rush his family into something.  He is also not willing to rush my daughters into something.   We don't want to push our children into an uncomfortable situation.  We are taking the time to make sure that our children both adult and child are prepared for our relationship.  My ex on the other hand has ramrodded his relationship down the throat of our girls.  Now the girlfriend is likable outside of this situation.  I no longer blame her for this mess even though she was a willing party.  He chose this situation through and through.  My ex approached me asking if we could break the morality clause.  It is a crimp in his style.  Of course he has been breaking it anyway but he wanted me to do the same.  I told him point blank that I could not ask my boyfriend to do so.  I would not do it but if that is what he wanted, so be it.  I really have no way of fighting back against it.  If he has been breaking this order, how many others has he broken?  He has had a very preventable accident in his work pickup.  I wonder if the ranch drug tested him.  If I had that kind of accident, I can guarantee that I would be drug tested.  He has also severely burned himself on an overheated radiator.  Again a preventable accident.  If he is willing to put himself in that kind of danger, what kind of danger would he put our daughters in?

My family, at the hearing of the judge's decision, was very distraught.  In fact, the judge threatened in court that he would permanently remove my daughters from my care if this display continued.  Upon discovering that she would be sent to live with her father temporarily,  my oldest daughter began screaming hysterically.  The judge stated that this was a reflection on me and my family.  It was very obvious that this judge had a prejudice against women in that hearing.  At the final hearing the judge decided that I had too much influence over my daughters.  He never defined that and how it was bad.  I still fail to understand.  Because of his actions, he, my ex and his attorney have all willingly and knowingly alienated my oldest daughter against me.  She and I were very close before this divorce.  Now she refuses to hear any truth.  She is constantly accusing me of lying.  She is constantly interfering in my personal business.  She has slapped me twice.  She has attempted to slap my boyfriend.  She is constantly pushing for more and more drama to get a response.  Friends and family have complained about it.  I have had to grit my teeth and bear it because she will not cease.

Where does this leave me now?  I am hurt because I have lost my kids through no fault of my own.  I am angry because others have lied and gotten away with it.  CPS investigator, Lisa Schur, even lied about me stating that I had given my daughter's journal to the judge.  Lisa Schur by the way is also a cousin of my ex's boss on the ranch.    I never did that.  It was in the custody of my attorney for safe keeping.  I finally gave my ex the damn diary against the wishes of my daughter.   They said that I knew about her suicidal attempts long before.  One instance was when I was working and her father was too busy talking on the phone to one of his many girlfriends.  Here I told him about it.  I told the school district and District IX.  I contacted Helen Farabee Mental Care.  I contacted Star Connection.  I even took parenting classes to see if I could learn anything new.  I also did counseling for a while but was told that I was fine and got a clean bill of mental health.  I was found guilty of medical neglect of my oldest daughter.  She even told them that I made every effort to get her help.  She attempted suicide once in front of me.  It was because I disciplined her about something.  She put on a dramatic display.  She and I talked about it but that wasn't enough.  I guess that I should have had her immediately admitted.

This ranch spans six counties with it being headquartered in Vernon.  This ranch holds powerful connections.  If it wants to protect the employees, it puts on a strong show of support even for the ones it considers outsiders.  Knowing full well that he did wrong by me.  Those wives better smarten up with the quickness.  If this happened to me, what about them?  They get drunk as some of the cowboys.   Eventually this will all bite them in the rear end.

So now, everyone knows how bad my situation has been.  The judge has finally granted the divorce leaving in all the stipulations that hurt me.  He has even given my ex the things that I had brought into the marriage.  That right there infuriates me to no end.  I have had my privacy rights, my constitutional rights, and my basic human rights violated at every turn.  People wonder how I have made it.  It is with the blessings of God.  It sure has not been anyone or anything else.  A weaker woman would have committed suicide.  I have been angry, hurt, and depressed but for the first time I do feel free.  I hope somewhere somehow that there is justice in this world.  That justice will find this judge, this attorney, and my ex quickly.  I pray for it constantly.  I also pray for understanding.  Many involved on my side have filed complaints against the judge and the attorney.  Now it is time for me to speak out.

Vicki for whatever reason you are sending these letters and threats.  They hurt both he and I.  They put his job in jeopardy which I am not against but you are giving him power to use those letters against me further denying me access to my daughters.  The people on the ranch consider you a loon.  Me I just don't care.  If my birthmother is afraid of me, it is because of my strength.  She did after all put it into me.  Trust me if she knew what you are doing, she would be standing beside me and fighting you.   Find something else to hurt me on.  You will have a tough time doing it because the worst has already happened.  No one can hurt me anymore including you.

I'm sorry, but I hold no punches. I know what has been going on and I know what lies were told and still are told. Amy is a kind, loving woman and a wonderful, giving mother. I watched this man's MySpace profile for months and he is no saint. He lied to me and he lies to others. Don, if you read this, honesty is the best policy. I can now see why you've been married five times, FIVE times and you're the same age as I am! That's a bit much, no?

You're a firestarter, not a peacemaker. I watched your social activity until you hid it, and you're slick, I give you that. Not slick enough to nab a woman with any decency, though, not since you destroyed your marriage and started your flirt-o-rama online. 5 times! Yikes!

Do your children a tremendous favor, please. Stop the games and lying. Just stop. Think of them first for once. Can you do that, please? Those girls deserve better than how you are treating them. Show them respect and put them first and foremost, and stop using them. Please.


I am NO fan of men who put animals down for no reason. DO NOT dare do that again. EVER. You can deny it, but I'm not stupid.
