Pawn Stars Star Death Hoax

Chumlee, one of the four stars of the reality show, Pawn Stars is taking to Twitter to confirm that he is not dead. Earlier in the week, it was reported that he had suffered a heart attack and passed, but he assures fans that he is alive and well. The 31 year old actor has lost weight this year and is proud of that accomplishment, but he is not dead!

Like many other stars, some website posted that he had died and it instantly becomes news around the world and the world wide web and like so many other stars, he is not dead. He has for some reason became a victim of a cruel hoax and fans are relieved to know that it is a hoax. The star comes across as lazy or slow on the show, but he has thousands of fans that would be upset if this story was true.

As a lifelong friend of Big Hoss, Chumlee takes a lot of heat from Rick and the Old Man on the show, but he is funny and finds love with many fans of the show. He has been with the show since its debut in 2009 and has no plans to leave the show and wants fans around the world to know that social media reports of his death are just false reports. Even co-star Rick Harrison tweeted that Chumlee is very much alive and well.

I don't know if my readers watch the show or not, but it is amazing to me how fast social media can spread a story like this and yet, there is no one checking to make sure that what they are saying is true. Maybe social media should be used to spread messages that need to be spread such as say No to drugs and other messages that we want our young people to pay attention too.

Maybe social media sites could be used to find the missing Malaysian jet that can not be found after disappearing off of radar several days ago and there seems to be no signs of. The jet has over 200 people aboard it and it seems to have vanished. If a story of the death of one person can spread so quickly, maybe we should share the planes route with others on social media and someone will hunt and find this plane.

This is a reminder to check out some details when we go to share something on the internet or on a social media site. Always be sure to the best of your ability that what you are sharing is true. We can easily be found sharing false information if we are not careful to check into our sources.

Chicks are here!

Chicks are here! That is the sign that we seen at Tractor Supply  yesterday when we went to stock up on food again. Each spring we anxiously await the arrival of the chickens, ducks, and other small fowl that farm stores like Tractor Supply and Rural King offer! This year I am looking for ducks, guineas and possibly turkeys.

Each spring brings plenty of opportunities to move new animals onto the farm. I enjoy the babies each year and look forward to seeing them grow. We usually have chicks hatch each year and so the chicks are usually in bounty here, but we don't have the opportunity to have turkeys hatch and this is the first year that we might actually have our own guineas. Our only turkey died this past year and so the turkey is for sure on a list of must haves this year.

Each spring, I go through a period of wanting plenty of small animals and some larger ones too. I personally am still wanting a zebra to add to the farm. I also am wanting to add a lamb this year. I would be interested in adding a calf too, but I could not make a pet of it as it would be for food eventually. The lamb would be a pet, but I might be interested in sheering it to sell some wool from it.

Although, we are having snow, freezing rain and in the middle of a winter storm, I am anxiously awaiting temperatures that will allow me to purchase a few of the chicks and ducks that I seen last night to add to my crazy life! I recommend that anyone who lives near a farm store, go see the babies as they will add a bright spot to your day.
