The parents of Madeleine McCann are now suspects in the disappearance of their four year old child. The Portuguese authorities have not charged the couple as yet. As I told you yesterday, this sounded weird from the beginning and the authorities have not helped in their poor handling of the case. Obviously overwhelmed, the police should have asked for outside help in the investigation from the beginning.
There is also another male suspect who lives nearby, although he has not been charged as of yet. It just makes me wonder when the parents become so adamant about finding their child to the point you feel that the emotions displayed become rather theatric. This always sounds my alarms. The days ahead should be interesting.

The Hits Just Keep On Coming:
An elderly couple, both well into their 80's, go to a sex therapist's office. The doctor asks, "How can I help you?". The man said, "We want you to watch us making love." The doctor raises both eyebrows, but he is so amazed that such an elderly couple is asking for sexual advice, he agrees. When the couple finishes, the doctor says, "There's absolutely nothing wrong with the way you make love," He wishes them good luck, charges them $50 and says goodbye.
About a week later, the couple return and asks the doctor to observe them again. The doctor is a bit puzzled, but agrees. This happens several weeks in a row.
After three months of this routine, the doctor finally asks the couple, "I'm sorry, but exactly what are you trying to find out?" The man replies, "Were not trying to find out anything. She's married, so we can't go to her house. I'm married, so we can't go to my house. The Holiday Inn charges $150 and the Hilton charges $200. We do it here for $50 and I get $43 back fron medicare."
That's it for today, my little pixies. Have a great weekend and more on Monday.
