Toronto Star reporter Rosie DiManno live-tweeted the nuptials from inside the church (which was decorated with maple leaves). Bridesmaids wore pale pink fishtail gowns,dream of doll, DiManno wrote, and the bride was chauffeured in a black Chevrolet Camaro convertible.
"It's a big wedding, probably the biggest I've ever done in my 46 years, as far as the celebrity part of it goes," said Rev. Paul Egan to the National Post.
Rev. Egan also noted that this was the first time he has ever conducted a wedding with a private security detail on the church grounds. "I said, ‘I hope the paparazzi won't be peeking in,' and [Ms. Cuthbert] said, ‘Well, that's why we have security.'"

The couple began dating five years ago.
Phaneuf popped the question last September and announced their engagement to 35 friends and family during a lobster dinner at New Glasgow Lobster.
Erin Forest, dining room supervisor at the restaurant, told E! News that Cuthbert and Phaneuf "had a reservation for Sunday evening for their family. They dine with us quite often for the summers. She must have been engaged over the weekend. It was the first opportunity for the family to find out that news. They kind of announced it to the family at the dinner here...They were all having a good time."
Congratulations to the newlyweds!


What is a BJD?


BJD stands for Ball-Jointed Doll.   It's a doll with ball-and-socket joints in its body, arms and legs.  Sometimes the waist and fingers also have articulating joints.    Making and customizing BJDs has been a popular hobby in Japan for a long time but popularity has now spread all over the globe.  Commercially made dolls are made of resin (and are quite expensive) but it's possible to make your own BJD with air-dry clay.  This is not a project for the beginner or the faint-of heart!   LOL

LaDoll and Creative Paperclay are two popular clays for creating BJDs.    Polymer clay is sometimes used but doll quality air-dry clays seem to be the most popular for one of a kind BJDs.


There are many variations in the way to join each part of a doll, but essentially all limbs and joints are joined together by hooks and loops of elastic that are string as shown in image below.

A well-balanced, well-constructed doll can sit, bend and stand by itself and imitate human movement very accurately.  Arms are attached by elastic running through the armholes and torso.  In each leg, loops of elastic run from a hook inside the ankle up through the knee, through the leg-hole, and up to the head.  All loops being hung on a hook inside the neck.   Another band is attached to hooks strung inside the wrist joint.

Of course, to have this type of joint stringing, the doll must be hollow.   There are several different methods for accomplishing this.   The one thing they all have in common is that dolls are made in sections which are formed over some kind of removable armature.    Many tutorials suggest using Styrofoam, straws and other material as the removable armature when creating hollow parts.

Row over existence of Loch Ness breaks out among tourist bosses


A row has broken out among tourist centre bosses in Scotland over the existence of the Loch Ness Monster, with one accusing another of selling fake photographs of the creature.

The argument started when George Edwards, who runs Loch Ness Cruises in Drumnadrochit, Scotland, criticised fellow members of the local Chamber of Commerce for treating the monster as "a myth".

Tony Harmsworth, the former boss of the Loch Ness Centre, responded by accused him of "palming his customers off with fake photographs".

The row is now threatening to split the local business community, 80 years after the first modern-day sighting of the monster put the loch on the map as a tourist destination.

In a letter to the chamber, Mr Edwards, criticised the overly scientific approach taken by the Loch Ness Centre. He says visitors come out of the exhibition feeling disappointed after being told that Nessie is "a myth".

"Just about every time that Mr Shine appears in the media he talks about big fish and big waves,Ddung," Mr Edwards said. "I believe they are doing more harm than good in promoting Loch Ness tourism with their negative theories.

Fred White Dies Broadcaster Was 76

Fred White, who was a sports broadcaster for the Royals,jewelry box, has died from complications of melanoma just a day after announcing his retirement. He was 76 years old.
White had a 40-year career with the Royals, some of which was spent in charge of the Royals Radio Network and as director of Broadcast Services. When he wasn’t broadcasting for the team, he was calling basketball games.
“Fred White has been synonymous with Royals baseball as long as anybody can remember,” Royals vice president of communications and broadcasting Mike Swanson said when the team announced White’s retirement. “There are so many people in Kansas City who, when they hear a voice, they knew it was Royals baseball, and Fred was that voice along with Denny for so many years. He had a huge influence on my life back in the ’70s, and I’m personally honored that I had a chance to work with him when I came back to town and wish him and his family nothing but the best.”


Kidnap Victim Shuns Family: Michelle Knight Could Be Adopted by Gina DeJesus' Parents

Kidnap victim, Michelle Knight, could continue to shun her family and is considering being adopted by the family of fellow kidnap victim Gina DeJesus, according to reports Friday.
According to a friend of Felix and Nancy DeJesus – parents of Gina – they are planning to adopt Michelle, whose relationship with her parents is not good following her release from captivity, the Daily Mail has reported.
According to the publication, a neighbor of the DeJesus family, Lupe Collins, was told by Nancy DeJesus on Thursday that she and her husband are trying to convince Michelle, 32, to come and live with them and allow them to adopt her.
Collins told the Daily Mail: "She was Georgina's sister for ten years in that house and she's still her sister now. They're going to take her in as their own family member and help her. Michelle doesn't want to go back to her own family because they abused her before she was kidnapped and they only want the money now."
Michelle Knight was finally released from the hospital on Friday and is reported to have gone to Gina DeJesus' house instead of going with her own mom or grandmother.
Metro Health Medical Center in Cleveland released the following statement on her behalf on Friday as she left the hospital:

Michelle Knight is in good spirits and would like the community to know that she is extremely grateful for the outpouring of flowers and gifts. She is especially thankful for the Cleveland Courage Fund. She asks that everyone please continue to respect her privacy at this time.
Since Monday, when Knight escaped after being held captive by Ariel Castro for 11 years, she has shunned her own family as she recuperated in hospital.
Knight was held for the longest of the three victims held in Castro's home, and she stayed in hospital until today, where as the other two victims, Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus have already gone home to family with joyous celebrations witnessed.
In contrast Michelle Knight has been very quiet in hospital, shunning visits from relatives, some of whom believed that she had run away when she disappeared 11 years ago.
Doctors at Metro Health Medical Center in Cleveland have described Thursday that 32 year old Knight was in good health. However, it has been reported that neither Knight's grandmother nor her mother, who flew in from Florida this week, have seen her for any substantial time yet, according to Reuters. Another report from CBS News claimed that Michelle had met her mother for a very brief moment on Wednesday, but that it was tense and eventually Michelle asked her mother to leave.
On whether they had managed to speak to Michelle, grandmother, Deborah Knight has said, "No, we haven't – on her request. She does not want to be seen by family," according to Reuters.
Knight's grandmother, Deborah Knight, had previously said in an interview that family members had believed Michelle had ran away because she was angry that her son had been removed from her custody. The grandmother claims that the family held that belief based on the recommendation of police and social workers.

However, Michelle has agreed to allow one of her siblings, brother Freddie Knight, in to see her since she was freed on Monday.
Freddie has since described his sister: "Her skin was white as a ghost. She told me she was excited to start a new life."
However, since his one visit to see her he has not been back. Instead he has spoken to her once on the telephone, but has agreed to stay away for the moment at the recommendation of hospital staff.
Michelle Knight's grandmother Deborah has also told WOIO-TV Thursday that Michelle will require facial reconstructive surgery as Castro had beaten her so badly during her captivity. She said, "When she was severely beaten, he had beat her so bad in the face, she has to have facial reconstruction, and she's lost hearing in one ear."
As well as Knight, Amanda Berry, now 27, was freed on Monday. She went missing in April 2003 after finishing a work shift at a local Burger King, one day before her 17th birthday.
Berry's aunt, Gale Mitchell, has spoken out about the developments, testifying that her family had never given up hope that she would be found alive.
"My daughter (Berry's cousin) had a feeling she was still alive," Mitchell recently told CNN. "So did I. You don't give up hope,bjd convention; you just pray and pray and pray."
"It's crazy. I always knew that Amanda was a strong-willed person and eventually I knew she would get out of there. I just knew it. I just wondered 'Why not sooner?'" Mitchell questioned.
The three girls were found in a home belonging to Ariel Castro in a low-income neighborhood on Seymour Avenue in Cleveland's West Side on Monday.
Gina DeJesus disappeared at age 14 in April 2004 while walking home from school, and Knight, who disappeared at age 20 in August 2002.
"If you don't believe in miracles, I suggest you think again," Sandra Ruiz, DeJesus' aunt, told local news station WJW.
Here is a video news report on the Ohio kidnappings and Michelle Knight's departure from hospital on Friday:
