That shooting yesterday at the Sunoco 7 Eleven was the second gas station/convenient store shooting in Lehigh County in less than a year. The other ended up becoming a murder-suicide at the Rt. 100 Wawa in Breinigsville nine months ago.
It’s a Saturday morning, and this is kind of like a freestyle post me. Sometimes rappers freestyle, and you can do it as a writer to. Even if you have no material in mind-just start writing.
Right now there is an active and ongoing investigation into the events that took place sometime this morning at the 7-Eleven and Sunoco gas station on the corner of 12th Street and Hamilton Boulevard in Allentown, Pennsylvania.
This morning at approximately 5:20, officers from the Allentown Police Department were dispatched on a shots fired call in the area of 12th St. and Hamilton Blvd. When police arrived on the scene they discovered one male victim suffering from multiple gun shot wounds.
The officers in assistance with Allentown EMS provided immediate aid on the scene before transporting the victim to a local hospital.
We don’t know exactly where the victim was found, but after viewing the scene this morning, it appeared that shell casings were found on the ground in that Sunoco gas station that’s connected to the 7-Eleven.
The Allentown Police Department is asking anyone with information to call Detectives at 610-437-7721 or the Police Desk at 610-437-7753 (ext 1). Additionally, anonymous text tips can be sent via the Tip411 App available on the Allentown Police Facebook Page (https://www.facebook.com/allentownpolice) or via the Allentown Police Department website at https://www.allentownpa.gov/Police.
✈Ed Bastian, the CEO of Delta Airlines, said 8,000 employees just tested positive for COVID.
“Really? That’s unbelievable considering how strict Delta was with employees when it came to following COVID safety procedures. I guess the vaccines aren’t as effective as Ed thought. Wasn’t Delta one of those companies who publicly took the arrogant approach, NO JAB NO JOB?”
🚷💉Some people are starting to complain and criticize China’s “Zero COVID” Policy. They’re saying it’s harsh and extreme. The Chinese government is locking down and shutting down entire cities, while bringing back those old camps we sometimes joke about. That’s right, Fox News just reported the Chinese government is forcing their citizens into COVID Quarantine Camps for 14 days. Yes, they’re hell bent on hosting the Olympic Games.
🤧🤒😷How about this? Online publication, The Epoch Times, just published a story breaking in Australia. The COVID outbreak is hitting the vaccinated population harder than the unvaccinated. Right now, for the first time, the number of vaccinated patients in the hospital from COVID is higher than those who’ve not been vaccinated.

🌔The current moon phase is a waxing gibbous, it’s 86 % illuminated on its way to being full on January 17th. Astrologically speaking the moon is Gemini. ♊
⬜I just read Barbara Hand Clow’s interpretation of the square aspect in our birth charts. She said, “Squares are your friend. They’re like vortexes of energy in our lives. Entering the vortex is the Chiron Gate. It’s the point in time and place where self exists, and where we’re forced to relate to our whole environment.” The square is a 90 degree aspect. I also learned in the same book, the sextile, a 60 degree aspect, is the most perfectly balanced aspect.

😮From the Cape of Good Hope in South Africa, William Herschel discovered Jupiter’s Ghost on February 7, 1785. Jupiter’s Ghost or NCG 3242 is a planetary nebula that was catalogued as HIV. 27. Two hundred years later HIV/AIDS was a global pandemic.
According to my research, the Galactic Center is a supermassive black hole located at approximately 26 or 27 degrees in the astrological sign of Sagittarius. (Please keep in mind astrology and astronomy seem similar, but they are not. The location of real constellations observed by astronomers do not always coincide with astrological signs or houses).
The research says the Galactic Center is located in the Sagittarius Constellation, and it just so happens, I guess, the GC is also located in the same astrological sign.
The GC is also called the barycenter, and it’s the center of our Milky Way Galaxy. It powers the compact radio source Sagittarius A, which is almost exactly at the galactic rotational center. Spread throughout the galaxy are intergalactic radio sources located in Taurus A, Virgo A, and Centaurus A. (This is my first question, “are these radio sources natural, do they allow for intelligent communication between different locations in the galaxy, and if so, who uses them?”
Earth, the planet on which we live, is apart of a solar system. Our solar system is located in the Milky Way Galaxy, and our galaxy is one of many in the Universe. Planet Earth is one of arguably nine planets that orbit the sun, hence the name solar system, and the sun orbits the center of the Milky Way galaxy. It takes our sun between 200 and 250 million years to orbit the Galactic Center.
The Sun rotates on its axis also. One rotation takes approximately 27 (earth) days or 648 hours. That means one Sunday or day on the sun lasts for 648 hours, and the sun makes approximately 13 rotations in one earth year.
This, I find extremely interesting because there are similarities with the moon. A moon cycle takes about 28/29 days. In a month, lets say January, there is usually one new moon and one full moon with the days in between spent ascending towards full light or descending to complete darkness. In a year there are approximately 12 new moons and 12 full moons-that is one of each per month. In the time it takes the sun to make one rotation on its axis, the moon also completes one full cycle.
As you may or may not know, for the last several months I’ve been checking out and referencing the website for the National UFO Reporting Center. I guess you could say I’m a little nosey when it comes to space, UFO’s, and extraterrestrials. Now, I’m not going to mislead you. NUFORC has nothing to do with extraterrestrials, I like to visit the site see what strange things people report seeing in our skies.
If you haven’t visited the site yet, NUFORC is the place where people go to report sightings, and believe me, some of those reports are fascinating.
The site itself had gone through several upgrades and changes recently, which made my job researching a lot easier. It looks like they have a new home page and added some tabs, but the best part really has to do with the organization of the report files. They are now broken down into categories so you search according to event date, by state, by UFO shape, and by date posted.
NUFORC has been in operation for 47 years and has logged 150,000 UFO sightings. In case you’re wondering, California is the state with most reported sightings; over 15,000!
On Tuesday, December 28, 2021, and Wednesday December 29, the Bethlehem Holiday Classic Wrestling Tournament took place at Bethlehem Liberty High School.
26 teams participated; Nazareth took first place with 228.0 points, Phillipsburg, New Jersey came in second with 208.5 points, with 128.5 points Easton placed fifth, and Emmaus came in seventh with 108.5 points.
Let me begin this post by saying Happy New Year! It’s 2022, and I’m excited. I’m excited for the start of a brand new year, and I’m excited for the opportunity to be writing again. You wouldn’t believe how hard it was not to write.
Every day I’d look at my laptop, and have to fight the temptation to post. “We’re off until the 6th of January, I kept reminding myself-this is a break, it’s a break that’s necessary, deserved, and it should be enjoyed.”
And I think that’s how we should look at breaks or vacations in general. A lot of people feel guilty when they’re on break, but that time away is just as important as the work we do all year. If I could make a gym reference; some people who lift weights, usually the beginners, think they have to lift weights every single day of the week to get the results they’re looking for. And then one day they get tired and burn out. That’s when they research and discover the importance of taking a break and putting time in between their workout routines so they can recover and heal. The break is actually the secret that promotes growth. Getting in shape is 50% physical and 50% nutrition and rest.
In preparation for the upcoming year I treated myself to a full body-deep tissue massage for one hour. I went to Artisans, and it was absolutely amazing.
I won’t feel guilty anymore and neither should you!
Okay, lets look ahead a little bit. New year resolutions-do you have some? What would you like to accomplish? What do you want to change, preserve, throw out, or add to your life? Are you in a better position right now, January 5, 2022, then you were on this day in 2021?
“Be at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let every new year find you a better man.”
On the basis of government’s role in America; If some of our Founding Fathers and early presidents were Freemasons, and Freemasons were at one time Templar Knights who were established to protect the innocent traveling to the Holy Land, then doesn’t it reinforce the establishment of our government with the purposes of protecting the people and promoting life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness? It does, but I never looked at this way until I started watching shows about the Templars.
One of our final posts of 2021, was very brief. It’s possible you scrolled past it and didn’t even notice it was there, but it was. “NCAA College Football Money Picks” We picked Alabama over Cincinnati with Cincinnati getting 13.5, and that covered. If you paid the one time subscriber fee, then you saw the second pick; We picked Michigan getting the points against Georgia, but Georgia clobbered the Wolverines and we were 50% against the spread.
During the next NCAA College Football season, we are going to pick 10 games every week. This is for those who love wagering up on a game, and trust me, we crush the spread. We’re going to give you our 10 picks for free for the first two or three weeks. After that it will be $10 per week (premium content fee) for our 10 BEST PICKS. Test it out, and take our picks. What do you have to loose? See how we do, and if you’re satisfied, stick with us. Let us make you money!
I was listening to Jimmy Church, he has a podcast called Fade to Black, and he said if you cover your house with 2,683 LED lights your house will be visible to the International Space Station! I thought that was interesting.
Well, it’s January 5th, and we are officially saying Happy New Year and this is our return and first post of 2022. It’s a little late, but we’re doing it right this year. Over here, this is what 2022 will be about; If you’re not a follower, and you have a hard time working or doing anything under the watchful eye and guidance of another, 2022 is about you stepping up and taking the reins. Whatever your issue is, 2022 is about you finally doing something to change it. Take the reins!
It’s that time if the year again. Every year we take off the last week of December and the first week of January.
As our fourth holiday season and New Year celebration together comes to an end, we’ll be preparing for a January 6th return date. From all of us at Nooz Buffet, thank you! Thank you for your support, for following us, and for all the likes and comments.
We send love and peace to all of you. Have a joyful holiday season, and a rocking New Year!
For those of us who love watching movies, there grows at some point an appreciation for the character who become the “universal badass.” The universal badass is the guy who defies all odds. He could walk into a bar full of trained killers, and walk out without a scratch after kicking everyone’s ass.
Or, like Rambo, take on an entire police department, or a country-alone. The universal badass is a joy to watch, and overtime, he actually becomes humorous. In a way, he becomes our hero, but we laugh at him. Why do we laugh? We don’t really know, it’s just funny to see a guy do the impossible like beat up 20 guys at one time. We love him.
Over the years there have been a lot of actors like this, but in the late 80s and early 90s, one would come along that would forever change the game. Steven Segal. What makes Segal different from all the rest is that he somehow managed to take his character with him into real life. In real life he’s a martial arts expert so it makes you wonder if he can really beat up 20 guys at once. You never really know though, and he never really answers questions directly so a lot of his reputation is built through assumptions.
In real life he’s a political diplomat with residency in two other countries. In real life he was a police officer in Louisiana, and eventually he took on that role in a show called Lawman. He continuously finds ways of reinventing himself, but he takes it all in stride. We always seem to learn something new about him that he’s been doing for 40 years.
I guess in all seriousness, we’re trying to get an idea of what Segal is really like. We know his character on screen, but fans want to know what the real Steven Segal is like. He never lets us in though. After a while, we get upset, and we’re like, “Alright, is this guy full of shit or is he the real deal?” We may never know.
However, there was an article published recently on the online publication Page Six, and in the article, his ex-wife Kelly Lebrock speaks up. And suddenly, Steven Segal is no longer a mystery. Click the link below. Before I end this post, I just want to say I love Steven Segal, and my entire family have been fans since Above The Law. You still make us laugh, and we appreciate the memories.
I mentioned this before, but I wanted to revisit it. If you were an alien, or you were some type of intelligent being living your life out in the universe, there would or could be the possibility that your existence becomes threatened when humans finally had the ability to create the atom bomb.
That bomb was tested in New Mexico, and later dropped on Nagasaki and Hiroshima. Perhaps that created a wave of disturbance that stretched into deep space, and life out in the universe was like woah?! WTF was that.
They were a little late, but eventually they did arrive in Roswell, New Mexico two years later in 1947. The mission cost them their lives.
Is this scenario so hard to believe? Isn’t it coincidental?
