Hello my dear friends hope everything is well with you. This is such a fun time of the year for us all if we check out the positive things that are happening in Maryland and think less of the negative things. Speaking of positive things, by the time you read this my “Boo-Boo” and I will be on the road to South Dakota to a couple of music festival and casinos.
I recently discovered an event that has been going on, I understand for about five years and has successfully produced nineteen events. I have no idea how I could have missed such an unusual affair all these years. Now, I consider these events unusual because, I personally have not heard of a black-tie, tux and gown social event held outdoors in a park on Pennsylvania and Fremont avenues every year for the past five years. But I was recently contacted by the founder and CEO, a young lady who only answers to the name Queen Mehetabeel. Her organization is an advertising business and talent live net work, designed to re-establish financial stability, self-esteem, self confidence and respect among the adult and youth.
Now about her name; she informed me that she was inspired by the teachings of Yahweh Ben Yahweh, a self-proclaimed messiah. She says, “I have followed the teachings of this remarkable, clever and masterful minded teacher, who has set the standard in excellence in economically, educationally, spiritually and world peace. She continues to tell me that Yahweh Ben Yahweh was, still is, and will forever be the Son of God Yahweh. He has now ascended and I stand ready to represent him, as Yahweh Bot Yahweh, meaning the daughter of Yahweh.” Her goal is to impart a true functioning network designed to eradicate impoverished conditions. At “Princes & Princesses in Existence” event, ages are 7 to 22.
The children are trained to represent adult establishments, if they don’t have a talent or business. They are trained as potential doctors, electricians, commentators, motivated speakers professional sellers etc. Well ladies and gentlemen on June 27 at the Triangle Park on the corner of Pennsylvania and Fremont avenues you will get the opportunity to see a show of live entertainment, served an exquisite dinner, dress up in your tux and gowns, drive up in your limo and support a good cause at the same time. For tickets and more information, contact Queen Mehetabeel at 410-967-1321.
