When I seen this picture it brought back a lot of memories. I think I've told you what a large family I have...and yes they all is just as horny as I am, I do believe as they get older, they gets more horny are talk about it more, not for sure, but one thing I'm sure of is every get together, you will see husband and wife sneaking out.
My daddy always drove a truck with a camper . Do I have to tell you why? Well I will, , he started this horny batch of kids, I am the last of the nine kids, so you see I had a lot of teachers, which they didn't know it then, boy it was fun.
This is about my third sister..she's the fifth born, and married to a preacher no less.[giggles] Well lets get to the good stuff. It was fall and the weather was nice, my co-conspirator in crime and I was bored out of our skulls. Then it happen, Nan shouted Nee come quickly, aunt Em just went out the door , shit out the door we went...uh huh..I am getting ahead of myself again, I forgot to mention he wasn't yet a preacher. Em and Dan sneaked into the back of the truck and we knew it was going to be on, the truck started moving and we sneaked to the little window, They were both naked as jay-birds and at that time Dan was as skinny as a rail, but boy did he have a pole hung on him. Dan got up and looked at Em's choochie and Em got on top and boy the fun begain.Em started jumping and bucking like she was riding a horse, Dan was groaning and moaning like he was in pain, Em was saying oh yes, oh yes...I asked Nan what was the matter with them , Nan was wiser because she was a year older...Nan told me we better go get someone because Dan had got his nuts hung up in Em like old Spot do in the female dogs and they won't come out till his dangle go down. I told Nan I was going to get daddy, she said no, get Chris, he will know what to do...so off we go, told Chris Dan was hurting Em , he told daddy, boy daddy got his shoot-gun and said nobody was going to hurt his girls. Daddy banged on the truck and said bring your ass out with your hands-up.[giggles] Em/Dan crawled out buck ass naked, daddy said what the hell is going on...Dan said nothing Mr. Touisaint, Em and I was just playing some strip-poker, they had forgot about us, until I said Dan you sure have a big long poker, you made my sister cry.
Daddy must have scared shit out of Dan and put the fear of God into him, because he started preaching shortly afterwards.
My take on this: Be careful where you fuck , little people have big ears and eyes. My Pic says the more I write the better I will get, so plase bear with me, I have a lot more horny stories to tell, some are even about me and my man. Stay tuned: more to come.Oh yes I think we all have did the nasty in one of daddy's camper trunks at one time.

"On the eve of my wedding, my father showed up, determined to stop it," writes Phillips, who was 19 at the time and a heavy drug user, according to People.com. "I had tons of pills, and Dad had tons of everything too. Eventually I passed out on Dad's bed."
During her time on the hit CBS comedy, which ran from 1975 to 1984, she battled drug addiction and underwent drug rehabilitation. She later was fired from the show in 1980 because of her drug abuse.
"I was a fragment of a person, and my secret isolated me," she writes, "One night Dad said, 'We could just run away to a country where no one would look down on us. There are countries where this is an accepted practice. Maybe Fiji.' "
The interview features Phillips discussing the time she spent hiding in her home, compulsively purchasing items from a television shopping channel as well as the events surrounding her arrest.
Mackenzie Phillips also tells Winfrey about an encounter she purportedly had with rock 'n' roll legend Mick Jagger.
Phillips' career as an actress took off when, as a teen, she performed the role of Carol Morrison in the 1973 film "American Graffiti." In the late 1990s, her career experienced a revival when she began co-starring on "So Weird," a Disney Channel program.

Since her release from captivity, Dugard has been with Probyn, her daughters, and other family members in an undisclosed location in El Dorado County, California.
According to new media reports, Jaycee has told investigators that her alleged kidnapper and rapist Phillip Garrido did not sexually molest her daughters while they were held in a backyard compound at his home in Antioch, California. Garrido fathered the daughters with Dugard, who are aged 15 and 11. In a column in The San Francisco Chronicle, writers Phillip Matier and Andrew Ross quoted an anonymous law enforcement source as saying that Garrido "didn't touch her kids." In addition, the writers also say that Dugard told officials that Garrido hasn't sexually approached her "in years."
Her stepfather, Carl Probyn, is speaking out on what has been happening to her now that she is away from Phillip and Nancy Garrido. Probyn says that Dugard's exposure to the outside world is still extremely limited, as officials do not want her memory to be tainted by the media. Therefore, she is not allowed to watch TV, read a newspaper, or listen to the radio. In addition, law enforcement authorities are debriefing her so she has the proper information. Probyn also says that Dugard and her daughters, Angel and Starlit, are "going a little stir crazy," but they will stay in hiding for as long as necessary so they can deal with their ordeal in the healthiest way possible.Now, a man named Kenneth Slayton is asking Dugard to take a paternity test to confirm that he his her birth father. Slayton had a brief relationship with Dugard's mother, and says that the FBI has identified him as Dugard's father. Slayton says, "Now that she has been found, I want her to know that our hearts are open to her and we long to be the loving, supportive, and normal family to her and her children..." He also says that he has not heard from Dugard or anyone associated with her since she was released.
Meanwhile, Phillip and Nancy Garrido, have been charged with 29 felony counts including kidnapping and rape, and are in jail awaiting trial. The search at the Garrido home was conducted to search for clues in connection with the disappearances of two other girls abducted before Dugard--Michaela Garecht and Ilene Misheloff.
Another weird story has emerged from the past of Phillip Garrido. A friend and former business client of Garrido's, who spoke to CNN anonymously, says that Garrido "feels he can speak to you and me and everyone else using this box." The 'box' that his friend is alluding to is a black box with jacks on the outside of it that can be used to plug in headphones. He apparently speaks to God through the box. His friend added that Garrido "was a whack job, but he was a whack job who seemed like he had a really good heart."
Ironically, a few days before his arrest, Garrido delivered some documents to the FBI that bragged about his black box. He believed in the power of his black box so much that he wanted to have it patented. Garrido, and his wife Nancy are being held on $30 million bond.

It was set up after the Asian financial crisis in 1999 as a forum for finance ministers and central bankers. The first G20 leaders summit in 2008 was convened to discuss response to economic crisis.
Members are: Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, EU, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, South Korea, Turkey, UK, USA, joined by Spain, Netherlands, International Monetary Fund and the World Trade Organisation.
The world's leading nations have agreed on"tough new regulations" to prevent another global financial crisis, US President Obama said. These relate to the amount of money banks have to hold in reserve and to excessive pay for bankers.
"We have taken bold and concerted action to forge a new framework for strong, sustainable and balanced growth," said President Obama.
"We have agreed on tough new financial regulations to ensure that the reckless few can no longer be allowed to put the global financial system at risk."
"We designated the G20 to be the premier forum for our international economic co-operation," the statement said.
The lesson of Pittsburgh is that the old world still can't bring itself to follow through on its rhetoric. It is endeavouring to patch up the failed framework of banking regulation rather than going for more fundamental and radical change.
"If you talk to the Chinese or talk to anyone from emerging markets they say the IMF doesn't have legitimacy and... we don't trust the IMF to come and rescue us in a crisis," according to Simon Johnson, former chief economist at the IMF.
"They don't trust it because it's US and West Europe-dominated. That's not fair... and the IMF doesn't function properly as a result."
Nobel prize-winning economist Amartya Sen welcomed the change in voting rights, but said that, "on their own, they won't be able to achieve much... It's not just a question of voting rights, but also a question of broadening the dialogue.

Jacobs says alarm bells went off when the accused kidnapper Garrido, a 58-year-old convicted rapist , arrived at the University of California Berkeley campus with his daughters by Jaycee seeking to arrange a religious event .
The girls, Starlite and Angel, spoke like robots and had this weird look in their eyes like brainwashed zombies, says Jacobs. They were very pale , with long hair,bright blue eyes and dressed likr characters from "Little Houuse On The Prairie." The girls said they were "home schooled" and Garrido explained he was teaching them to "interact with people" according to the cop.
Jacobs asked one girl about a large bump over her eye. She said , it's a birth defect. It's inoperable and I'll have it for the rest of my life, recalls Jacobs. The way she responded , was rehearsed. I really think my motherly instincts kicked in at that point.
The suspisious cop, who has two kids of her own, had no choice but to let them leave. But Jacobs was so worried about the girls, she checked and found Garrido was a sex offender, she contacted his probation officer and when I mentioned the daughters, he said, wait a minute, he dosen't have any daughters, says Jacobs. My stomach dropped.
Amazingly, despite visiting the Garrido home, cops say bungling probation officials were unaware he and his wife Nancy had imprisoned Jaycee and her daughters in a backyard labyrinth of tents and sheds. After Jacobs call, Garrido was ordered to report to his parole office and arrived with Jaycee, the girls and his wife Nancy. Lawmen say, thanks to Officer Jacobs the trio was finally free.
My take on this: A mother instinct is barely ever wrong, I know Jaycee's family heart-felt thanks go out to this wonderful and caring lady. I, like so many others wonder why it taken so long...is it because we don't care about our fellow man ..or because it's not happening to us directly, we don't want to get involved? Well let me tell you, however the ball bounce, it may bounce your way, then we will see how the shoe fits. But hey, that's just me.

He said: "We do think holographic 3D TV is feasible, but the technology is not in place yet.
"If you ask my opinion, it will take another 10 years to get there."
However, he said that it would offer the "ultimate viewing experience".
"For example, take a football game. Viewers would be able to look at a TV that will be like a coffee table and see small-scale real football players made up from light running around on that table."
The research consortium is looking into all aspects of 3D technology, such as capturing 3D motion scenes, computerised representation, transmission and display.
Professor Onural, who is based at Bilkent University, Turkey, said: "Lower-end technologies, such as stereoscopic 3D (a method of displaying an image that gives the impression of depth) will be commonplace in homes and cinemas in about three years."
He said the technology had been present for many years, but recent advances would mean the motion sickness that has made 3D films an unpleasant viewing experience in the past could be reduced.
The research consortium has also developed and tested 3D stereoscopic displays where the viewer can look at 3D images without special glasses.
Professor Onural said: "With stereoscopic cinema, we think that there will be huge interest from the movie-goers, and we think it will be available in regular movie houses in three years.
"We think that some people might want to purchase 3D television sets for home viewing. "
However, he admitted that he did not "yet know how the consumers will behave and what the commercial success of that project will be".
The vaccine - a combination of two previously unsuccessful vaccines - cut the risk of becoming infected with HIV by more than 31 per cent in the world's largest AIDS vaccine trial of more than 16,000 volunteers in Thailand, researchers announced Thursday in Bangkok.
Even though the benefit is modest, "it's the first evidence that we could have a safe and effective preventive vaccine," Col. Jerome Kim told The Associated Press. He helped lead the study for the U.S. Army, which sponsored it with the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
The institute's director, Dr. Anthony Fauci, warned that this is "not the end of the road," but said he was surprised and very pleased by the outcome.
Even a marginally helpful vaccine could have a big impact. Every day, 7,500 people worldwide are newly infected with HIV; 2 million died of AIDS in 2007, UNAIDS estimates. The study tested the two-vaccine combination in a "prime-boost" approach, in which the first one primes the immune system to attack HIV and the second one strengthens the response. They are ALVAC, from Sanofi Pasteur, the vaccine division of French drugmaker Sanofi-Aventis; and AIDSVAX, originally developed by VaxGen Inc.
ALVAC uses canarypox, a bird virus altered so it can't cause human disease, to ferry synthetic versions of three HIV genes into the body. AIDSVAX contains a genetically engineered version of a protein on HIV's surface. The vaccines are not made from whole virus - dead or alive - and cannot cause HIV. Neither vaccine in the study prevented HIV infection when tested individually in earlier trials, and dozens of scientists had called the new one futile when it began in 2003.
"I really didn't have high hopes at all that we would see a positive result," Fauci confessed.
The results proved the skeptics wrong.
"The combination is stronger than each of the individual members," said the army's Kim, a physician who manages the army's HIV vaccine program.
Wonderful news. It may not be the cure AIDS patients are praying for but it's a huge step down the right road.
What was until recently a featureless expanse of frozen peat is turning into a watery landscape of lakes, some more than a kilometre across. Kirpotin suspects that some unknown critical threshold has been crossed, triggering the melting.
In May this year, Katey Walter of the University of Fairbanks Alaska, said that she had found methane hotspots in eastern Siberia, where the gas was bubbling from thawing permafrost so fast it was preventing the surface from freezing, even in the midst of winter.

The baby, who is still unnamed and is 62 centimetres (24.4 inches) long, was born by caesarean section Monday at a public hospital in North Sumatra province, a gynaecologist who took part in the operation told AFP.
"This heavy baby made the surgery really tough, especially the process of taking him out of his mum's womb. His legs were so big," Binsar Sitanggang said.
The boy is in a healthy condition despite having to initially be given oxygen to overcome breathing problems, the gynaecologist said.
"He's got a strong appetite, it's almost non-stop feeding," he said.
"This baby boy is extraordinary, the way he's crying is not like a usual baby. It's really loud."
The boy's massive size was likely the result of his mother, Ani, 41, having diabetes, Sitanggang said.
She had to be rushed to hospital due to complications with the pregnancy, which had reached nine months. The baby, her fourth, was the only child not delivered by a traditional midwife.
When a diabetic mother's glucose level is high during pregnancy, the baby can receive too much glucose and grow too large, according to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists.
Indonesia's previous heaviest baby, weighing in at 6.9 kilos, was born in 2007 on the outskirts of the capital Jakarta, according to the Indonesian Museum of Records website.
What can you do? they don't have nay money. I promised to follow the Hippocratic Oath, and if anybody is ill, you help them, she said.
Dr.Enriquez has 5,000 patients in her practice in "Half Moon Bay, California, and 65% of them--more than 4,000 people--are so poor they can't pay her. Many are indigent farm workers and fishermen. If they say they don't have money, I say, "that's okay". Pay me when you have the money. Some of them is able to pay me little by little. Others pay me in food or help.
Dr. Enriquez often finds vegetables, eggs and chickens left on her doorstep by farmworkers, fishermen give her fish. I may not be rich, but I never go hungry, she chuckles. Other patients tend her yard, cutting her grass, and watering her plants. They find ways to repay me, she explains.
Dr. Enriquez , who is known to her patients as "Dr. Joy" often dips into her own pocket to help patients who has fallen on hard times. She's given $500 in cash to families to tide them over. She's also shelled out $2,500 to pay for food and shelter at a hotel for families who've lost their homes.
Dr. Enriquez, a widower with two sons, came to the U.S. when she was 25years-old. She was born in the Phillippines during World War II.
My Grandmother was a nurse, and I saw how she helped people. She tended the wounded and the sick. She didn't stop to ask if they could pay her. She just wanted to help, says Dr. Enriquez. I'm just trying to follow her example.
I believe if you try to do good by people, they will try to do good by you. My patients often don't have the money to pay me, but they have given me a wealth of riches in so many other ways.
My take on Dr. Enriquez: What a generous, wonderful and caring person, to give so much and ask so little in return. Maybe the big "Insurance" companies should take some advice from Dr.Enriquez and give a helping hand. Better still jump on the band-wagon with Mr. Obama and we all will have better health care. Stay tuned: More good deeds to come.
More than 2,500 researchers and economists attended this meeting designed to update the world on the state of climate research ahead of key political negotiations set for December this year. New data was presented in Copenhagen on sea level rise, which indicated that the best estimates made two years ago were woefully out of date. Scientists heard that waters could rise by over a metre across the world with huge impacts for hundreds of millions of people.
There was also new information on how the Amazon rainforest would cope with rising temperatures. A UK Meteorological Office study concluded there would be a 75% loss of tree cover if the world warmed by three degrees for a century. The scientists hope that their conclusions will remove any excuses from the political process.
"We've seen lots more data, we can see where we are, no new surprises, we have a problem: -Mass migrations"
The meeting was also addressed by Lord Stern, the economist. He now says the report underestimated the scale of the risks, and the speed at which the planet is warming.
He urged scientists to speak out and tell the politicians what the world would be like if effective measures against global warming were not taken. He said that if the world was to warm by 5C over the next century, there would be dramatic consequences for millions of people. Rising seas would make many areas uninhabitable leading to mass migrations and inevitably sparking violent conflict.
Lord Stern: 'The Economics of Climate Change' underestimated the risks
"You'd see hundreds of millions people, probably billions of people who would have to move and we know that would cause conflict, so we would see a very extended period of conflict around the world, decades or centuries as hundreds of millions of people move, " said Lord Stern.
"So I think it's very important that we understand the magnitude of the risk we are running."
He said that a new, effective global deal was desperately needed to avoid these dramatic scenarios - and the current global economic slowdown was in some ways a help.
" It's an opportunity, given that resources will be cheaper now than in the future, now is the time to get the unemployed of Europe working on energy efficiency."
China vows climate change action: - At UN Meeting
China will increase efforts to improve energy efficiency and curb the rise in CO2 emissions, President Hu Jintao has told a UN climate summit in New York. Mr Hu gave no details about the measures, which should mean emissions grow less quickly than the economy.
The US, the world's other major emitter, said China's proposals were helpful but figures were needed. About 100 leaders are attending the talks, ahead of the Copenhagen summit which is due to approve a new treaty.
UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said failure to agree a treaty in December would be "morally inexcusable". Negotiators for the Copenhagen summit are trying to agree on a replacement for the Kyoto Protocol to limit carbon emissions. Mr Ban called the meeting an attempt to inject momentum into the deadlocked climate talks.
"Your decisions will have momentous consequences," he told the assembled leaders.
"The fate of future generations, and the hopes and livelihoods of billions today, rest, literally, with you," he added.
The Chinese president said his country would curb its carbon emissions per unit of Gross Domestic Product, a measure also known as carbon intensity, by a "notable margin" by 2020 from the 2005 level. However, the proposal is unlikely to mean an overall reduction in emissions, as China's economy is expected to continue to grow rapidly. A US official said that China's proposals were helpful but Beijing needed to provide figures.
"It depends on what the number is," US President Barack Obama's climate change envoy Todd Stern said. But former US vice-president and environmental activist Al Gore praised China's "impressive leadership".
"We've had ... indications that in the event there is dramatic progress in this negotiation, that China will be prepared to do even more," he said.
Change from Beijing is partly a reaction to international criticism as China becomes the world's biggest polluter. The country's rapid economic growth has created demand for more energy and fuel.There is a growing need for Beijing to provide clear answers on what is being done to deal with the problem.
Image-conscious Chinese officials want to be seen as co-operative internationally and accept that China must become part of the solution to major global issues such as the financial crisis and climate change.
China's climate policy shift
Much of the debate about tackling global warming revolves around the idea of absolute cuts in emissions of carbon dioxide - but developing countries like India and China feel that this emphasis is unfair. Richer countries, meanwhile, have had the benefits of centuries of fossil fuel use, and are now demanding that growing nations stop using them with no obvious alternatives in place, he says. Mr Hu also pledged to "vigorously develop" renewable and nuclear energy.
He restated China's position that developed nations needed to do more than developing nations to fight climate change because they were historically responsible for the problem.
"Developed countries should fulfill the task of emission reduction set in the Kyoto Protocol, continue to undertake emission reduction targets and support developing countries in countering climate change," he said.
In other speeches at the summit:
US President Obama acknowledged that the US had been slow to act, but promised a "new era" of promoting clean energy and reducing carbon pollution
The new Japanese Prime Minister, Yukio Hatoyama, pledged to reduce emissions by 25% by 2020( compared to the 1990 level Obama set as the goal for the US).
French President Nicolas Sarkozy called on leaders to meet again in mid-November ahead of the crucial Copenhagen conference.
According to the BBC's UN correspondent, Barbara Plett, discussions have stalled because rich nations are not pledging to cut enough carbon to take the world out of danger, while poorer countries are refusing to commit to binding caps, saying this would prevent them from developing their economies.
China's role is crucial, because it is both an emerging economy and a big polluter, our correspondent says.
Despite all its advances in green technology, China still gets 70% of its energy from coal - and as its economy increases, this means yet more growth in greenhouse gases, our correspondent says.
There is also concern about the US: - The second greatest polluter in the world.
President Obama has recognised climate change as a pressing issue, unlike the previous administration, the UN correspondent says.
He has already announced a target of returning to 1990 levels of greenhouse emissions by 2020, but critics say Washington is moving too slowly on legislation which does not go far enough.
If Americans were better informed of the danger the world is in, I'm sure they would pull together to cut CO2 emissions.You just have to tell them what they need to do. It's a crisis now folks. If the planet dies, we die.

Speaking to TV host David Letterman on CBS' The Late Show, he deadpanned: "I think it's important to realise that I was actually black before the election."
As the audience whooped with laughter at the subversive remark, Letterman kept up the joke, asking the President: "How long have you been a black man?"
Returning to his point, Obama said it was an honour that the American people had chosen him as their leader.
"That, I think, tells you a lot about where the country is at", he said.
He suggested that the fierce objections to his health reform proposals came from a "certain segment of society" that had a tendency to get "riled up" whenever a President tried to make a significant change.
"One of the things that you sign up for in politics is that folks yell at you," he said.
President Obama also used his time on the Late show couch to acknowledge that Americans were weary of the war in Afghanistan, and said US troops were performing heroically there and in Iraq. But he kept things light-hearted as he turned to the subject of his young daughters Malia and Sasha.
The girls "basically just goofed off all summer" he said, adding that he wished he could have done the same.
Obama's appearance on Letterman's popular late-night show wrapped up a media blitz seemingly aimed at putting him in front of as many cameras as possible to sell his message to a sceptical public. He was a guest on five different talk shows on Sunday morning and had been on "everything but the Food Channel," a Republican senator remarked.
Yet the President also had a joke ready when Letterman questioned what he was doing on his show.
"The main reason I'm here? I want to see that heart-shaped potato," he quipped, referring to an audience member featured earlier in the programme who had turned up with the quirky vegetable.
He argued: “Here’s a species that of its own accord has gone down an evolutionary cul-de-sac. It’s not a strong species.
“Unfortunately it’s big and cute and it’s a symbol of the World Wildlife Fund – and we pour millions of pounds into panda conservation. I reckon we should pull the plug. Let them go with a degree of dignity.”
The cash should instead go on saving biodiversity hotspots, he argued. Chris, 48, claimed breeding threatened species in captivity then releasing them into the wild was “nonsense” – and said tigers would die out within two decades. He said, “Animals are invariably becoming extinct because there’s no secure habitat for them."
“Where are you going to release them? I don’t think tigers are going to last another 15 years. How can you conserve an animal that’s worth more dead than alive? You can’t.”
Fellow wildlife expert David Bellamy last night backed Chris and said: “I agree completely. When I was a WWF trustee I begged them to buy big chunks of the land in which these animals live, not just go on spending millions on rearing pandas in captivity."
“You can’t release them back into the wild if there is no wild left and we shouldn’t rear animals just to put them into cages. “Even the WWF admitted there is no longer enough land for them to live on.”
He said: “Chris is right – we need to keep secure habitat for endangered species. This is exactly what’s being achieved in the case of the giant panda.”
It is not the first time Chris has outraged conservationists by suggesting they give up on the iconic black and white bear. Last year he said: “I’d eat the last panda if I could have the money we’ve spent on panda conservation back on the table for me to do more sensible things with.”

The sexy actress has been romanically linked with younger men including 50 Cent,33, and R&B rap superstar Ne-Yo,29. But now she seems content with non showbiz guys, as long as they are young and handsome said another source. Vivica ,recently, was, an eyewitness says, at Casa Vega two weeks in a row--both times with a different guy. They were margarita-fueled dinners, and her dates could hardly keep their hands off her, said the insider. Vivica is honest abouty her cougar tendenices, recently telling a reporter : Younger guys happen to be attracted to me, so I might as well enjoy it while they're looking. I'm very young spirited.
My spin on this crap: A different guy each date, damn you can't keep them for at least two dates? With all the nips and tucks, it looks good with the clothes on, but when the clothes come off, now that's another story. Hon, you need someone to love and cuddle you, not a rodeo rider breaking a horse. But it seems the young men in Weirdwood have jumped on the band wagon to see how to make an easy buck off gullible old women with money. But hey, that's just me.
Post script: -If she is into younger men, then the rumor of a romance with David Caruso must have been pure BS. He's part of the 'over-the-hill-bunch'.
For the 13th and probably the last time, the killer. who has fatal brain cancer, was turned down in her bid to be freed so she can die at home.Weakened by treatment and wearing a knit cap,Atkins, 61, dozed on a hosiptal bed through most of her September 2 parole hearing at the central California Women's Facility in Chowchilla. As a result of her medical problems, one of Atkins legs has been amputated and the other is paralyzed. As sad as Atkins looks today, it pales against the crime sence photos, blasts L.A. County Deputy District Attorney Patrick Sequeira, who opposed the monster's release at the hearing.
Tate's sister Debra and Margaret DiMaria, whose brother Jay Sebring was killed with the actress, also opposed parole--and the board returned a unanimous 12-0 vote against turning the murderer loose. The question of no mercy has dogged the ruthless butcher for 40 years.
On August 8, 1969, an eight-and-a-half-months-pregnant Tate,26, begged knife-wielding Atkins to spare her life and that of her unborn baby, "I told her I didn't have mercy for her" the fiend admitted to parole officials in 1993.
After stabbing director Roman Polanski's wife to death, Atkins tasted her blood and used it to write "PIG" on the front door of the Benedict Canyon home where Manson's followers savagely murdered five people. Atkins was slapped with a life sentence for Tate's death and now it's very likely the only way she will leave is in a pine box.
My take on this: Show no mercy or pity, you will get none in return. Why should the parole board feel sorry for Susan Atkins? She taken two lives, one had just begun and the other hadn't began. The state of California should put all of Manson's followers to death, the state should have formed a line with Manson leading the pack. Everyone knew they was guilty as sin. We have a saying down here, you sleep with the devil, you wake up in "HELL". But hey, that's just me.

Was it a fish, an eel or some kind of serpent-like creature? She says she didn't know. But Horvath grabbed her camera and managed to fire off one shot before the batteries failed.
The researchers who specialize in looking for so-called crytozoological creatures - in other words, monsters - spent Saturday on the lake probing the depths with a sonar-like fish finder.
At first, they picked up a couple of large contacts at the bottom of the lake, about 45 metres deep, then something more pronounced on a second pass.
"Something just went 'ping' on the alarm on the fish finder and we saw this absolutely massive object in the midst of various fish," said John Kirk, president of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club.
They made four more passes and the contact held stable, making it unlikely that it was a school of fish, which tend to scatter eventually, Kirk said.
"We were quite stunned that there was something that big in the lake and it was in about 60 feet of water, less than 30 yards from shore, it was quite amazing," he said.
Horvath, who lives in Nanaimo, said she was driving along Highway 4 on July 30, 2007, when she saw a strange semi-circle in the lake.
"You could see like a serpent shape," said Horvath, who isn't the only person to report something strange in Cameron Lake.
"It wasn't logs," she said. "It wasn't waves. There were no boats in the area. It was, like, right there. You could actually see a large fish, (an) object, no, not an object, something alive."
Because the weather will deteriorate in the fall and winter, another search will have to wait until next year, Kirk said. But the team has narrowed the possibilities.
"Maybe it's a sturgeon, maybe it's a giant sterile eel....it could be a massive type of salamander," Kirk said. "Or it could be something that we're completely unaware of at this point."
However, it's unlikely the small lake is the home of a mysterious sea monster, Kirk said.
"I'm not going to the extent to say there's anything exotic down there, there's just something big."
Kirk has searched for the Ogopogo in Okanagan Lake in the B.C. interior, looked in coastal B.C. for the Sasquatch, tried to find the sea creature Cadborosaurus off Vancouver Island and has hunted for giant salamanders in swamps. He's been to Scotland and the republics of Congo and Cameroon in search of strange dinosaur-like beasts. But it's British Columbia waters that provide a fertile hunting ground for animal tales, he said. Kirk said there are 41 different lakes in British Columbia where strange animal sightings have been reported.
"In B.C., we just seem to have a ton of these lakes where these things have been seen," he said.
Sawmill workers at Lake Cowichan on Vancouver Island reported seeing a large lake creature during the 1960s and a local fisherman said he hooked something that pulled him and his boat around the lake for an hour.
He said the Cadborosaurus, which has been adopted as an unofficial tourism mascot in the Victoria area, is real because fishermen found one inside the belly of a sperm whale in 1937 and sent it to the Royal B.C. Museum for identification.
"We've had what you might say in scientific terms is the type-specimen of the Cadborosaurus," said Kirk. "Most people describe this thing as an elongated serpent-like creature. It has a camel-like head. That description comes up over and over."
A former clerk of the B.C. legislature, Henry William Langley and provincial archivist Fred Kemp, issued a joint statement in 1922 saying they'd seen a sea creature off Chatham Island near Victoria.
"These are not nut-case people. These are very serious people," said Kirk.
Kirk said Cadborosaurus' range is not confined to the Victoria area. Reports of a similar animal have come from the Gulf of Alaska to the Sea of Cortez in Mexico.
In Oregon, the animal goes by the name Colossal Claude.
But Kirk believes British Columbia is in a class by itself for what he calls crytozoological encounters. People have actually started to embrace the strange animals to the point where they are showing up in tourism brochures, he said.
"Like Moberly Lake up in the (northeast) area, the First Nations there got in touch with me and told me about the creature that they had been seeing with a horse's head swimming around in the lake, and now they've given it a name," Kirk said.
"They call it Moberly Dick."

It has been revealed that in the early days of her captivity, the terrified schoolgirl was so hungry she ate bugs and worms in the rambling back garden where she was held in tents and lock-up sheds. She had to use a garden hose to shower outside, even in the depths of winter, say detectives guarding her and her two daughters, fathered by kidnapper Phillip Garrido. But the public are desperate for the full story of how Jaycee, now 29, survived after being snatched on her way to a school bus stop when she was only 11. A Hollywood studio producer said last night: “Everyone is in the market for this story. Poor Jaycee’s life may have been hell for 18 years but she’ll never want for anything for the rest of it.”
A psychiatrist who has spent at least 150 hours with Jaycee is convinced she is suffering from Stockholm syndrome, a psychological state sometimes seen in hostages, in which the victim shows loyalty, even affection towards the captor.One therapy being suggested is for Jaycee to write a letter to Garrido, 58, and his wife Nancy, 54. Garrido, a registered sex offender, has been linked to six child abductions and murders stretching back years within a 400-mile radius of the ramshackle home in Antioch, California, where Jaycee was held.Talking about the letter therapy, a source said: “She has been told that she need not mail it to them but it’s being seen as one small way of helping her understand her feelings .”
Even if Jaycee does not write, her stepfather Carl Probyn, 61, said that he intends to write regularly to Garrido and his wife .“I will be telling them how well our family is doing and how wonderful things are outside prison, where I pray he and his wife rot until the day they die,” he said.
The two children of Jaycee Dugard fathered by the man accused of imprisoning her for 18 years are distraught at the arrest of their father and bewildered by the way their lives have been suddenly changed. Starlet and Angel, aged 11 and 15, were rescued from the intricate web of tents and sheds erected by Phillip Garrido in the backyard of his home in Antioch, California, in which they spent their entire lives. They were born in a sound-proofed hut in the compound, never saw a doctor or attended school and were rarely allowed out.
They have been told by their mother that she was abducted by Garrido on her way to school and that their father imprisoned and raped her. Snippets of information that have emerged about the children suggest they are deeply confused. Carl Probyn, who keeps in close touch with the family, said the revelations about their abusive father have caused turmoil for Starlet and Angel. "These girls are so fragile. They are upset about this because that's their father and he's in jail."
Probyn said Terry, Jaycee and the two girls were "doing fine - not exactly fine, but fine for the situation. My wife says that Jaycee is an excellent mother, and they are bonding, playing little games like checkers."
Chris Campion, an FBI agent who witnessed the reunion, said Terry was ecstatic. "It was a very emotional scene - both of them were just overjoyed to be with each other again. There's going to be a period of adjustment, no doubt, but they're doing very well at this point."
Dugard has had to deal with feelings of guilt because she was attached to Garrido despite the fact that he had abused her and she had made no apparent attempt to escape.
"Jaycee has strong feelings with this guy. She really feels it's almost like a marriage,"according to Probyn
Stephen Ajl, a child abuse pediatrician in New York, said Jaycee and her children would need expert care for a long time: "The scars on them will be enormous. Their norm has been inside that compound and anything outside it will seem terrifying. They have been reared on another planet, and nothing about their recovery will be straightforward or easy."
A FINAL NOTE:
Reportedly, Jaycee wants her pets back in her life, though the animals, which include a Rottweiler mix, a Labrador mix and domestic short-haired cats, are being held at an area shelter.
The larger animals were found in the yard or in the various tents and outbuildings on the property. Lt. Nancy Anderson of the county's animal services agency said, "They're very friendly and socialized."
Jaycee's pets include five shorthair cats, the two dogs, three cockatiels, a pigeon and a mouse. They've all been at the Contra Costa County Animal Services facility in Martinez since Aug. 27, says the San Jose Mercury News. The animals might comfort them and help them all to adjust and process what's happening.
BONES FOUND IN GARRIDO'S BACKYARD:
Bill Silva, an archaeologist with B.A. Silva Sensing Systems, said it is common to find anomalies such as stones, roots or pits in soil, but the fact a disturbance was found at the same spot that prompted a response by the dogs a day earlier warrants further investigation. The dogs are trained to detect human remains.
Silva's crews have been scouring the site as part of an effort this week to find clues to two child abductions from the late 1980s.
Meanwhile, another bone was found on the property of the kidnap suspects as crews were removing debris and breaking concrete, Dublin police Lt. Kurt von Savoye said at an afternoon news conference. As with other bones found earlier this week on the Garrido property and a neighboring property, authorities said testing will be required to determine whether it is human.
