Unmasking the Cyber Stalker

Upon returning home from vacation, I learned that a longtime friend lost his courageous battle with kidney failure. May he RIP.

I also discovered that "Anne from Brazil" continues to stalk posters as indicated by the previous entry. I subsequently noticed my site is under incessant surveillance by "Anne from Brazil" as well.

I do not know this troubled individual nor do I have any idea what her agenda is. She claims her abnormal online behavior is motivated by a friendship with Loretta Serrano.

It's my personal opinion that a healthy middle-aged woman should be perfectly capable of dealing with criticism on her own. But if Anne insists on being an interloper, then she does so at the risk of exposure. I suspect Anne is looking for her fifteen minutes of distinction and accordingly I will accommodate her.

Guest Entry: Attention, Anne Curi


"Truth Teller"
Profile #22813589

AKA: Anne from Brazil, Anne Curi, Nanny

It has come to my attention that you, Blogger #22813589 AKA Truth Teller, et al, created a blog on August 22, 2006, which bears my name and is designed to encourage discussions about my purported questionable character. After reviewing the material sent to me, I feel compelled to address the felonious information you have seen fit to publish.

First and foremost, neither of the two properties you have showcased is my primary residence. In fact, one of the properties isn’t even mine. I assume the property you refer to, as "the shack" is the natural shingled home? If so, I imagine you skipped over the fact that there is only ONE name listed under "owner" in your haste to lift the photo of the house from the tax assessor’s online database. The name is NOT mine, so how could I rent it? The fact of the matter is I know who occupies that home because it’s a relative. I also know one of the occupants is handicapped due to injuries from an auto accident. The picture you pirated is old and doesn’t reflect any handicap modifications to the home. So, the question is...

Why are you STALKING people with physical impairments, Truth Teller?

You didn’t find any rental property because it was listed under a company name and has been sold. That’s when my retired spouse and I relocated to a warmer climate, which you could call a pension benefit and good estate planning! We now enjoy spending summer months up north while visiting with family. Those family members occupy the other house that you have an unlawful photo of. Apparently you missed the warning that FORBIDS distribution of any material from CRC’s site? Not to worry, I have informed the company of the theft and they will investigate as soon as I forward them the URL to your site, Truth Teller.

One of the residents in that household turned 90-years old this month. I can assure you Grandma is not very happy that her home is being displayed on the Internet. She has been speed dialing the local police every day since she learned of it; each time demanding they take the photos down. So far, what you have managed to accomplish with your irresponsible folly is to instill fear in the life of a 90-year old woman. That’s an achievement only an unscrupulous person would take pride in. So, now the question is...

Why are you STALKING senior citizens, Truth Teller?

[WWW - Bloggers: Note that your behavior is in violation of the rules set forth in Blogspot’s Terms of Service Agreement, specifically transmitting contents that are unlawful, tortious, libelous, and invasive of another's privacy.]

[Rhode Island: Note that your behavior is in violation of the Terms and Conditions of Use that are clearly posted at Certified Revaluation Company’s website.

[Rhode Island: Note that your behavior is in violation of Title 11, Criminal Offenses, CHAPTER 11-52Computer Crime, § 11-52-4.2 Cyberstalking prohibited.]

Accordingly, I request that you (1) immediately remove the illegally obtained photos of my family’s private residences from your website, (2) cease posting personal information about members of my family, and (3) cease stalking persons related to me by lineage or marriage, especially the handicapped and elderly. If you fail to do so, I will be forced to take action against you and seek recovery of the damages your actions have caused my family. I trust it will not be necessary. Furthermore, any statements you publish about me to the world at large that are not supported by verifiable facts will be considered harmful to my reputation for which you will be held accountable. I will not hesitate to pursue further legal action against you, including, but not limited to civil action and/or criminal complaints.

"Unfortunately, I am too far away to beat any of them. And I am not sure if I will be going to US this December, as I usually do (looks like Husband has other plans). Well, I will try my best to convince Husband that I NEED (would love) to know Arizona on our next trip to SF. KFC is mine.

What if I want to send you something? OK. I give up. No wish list. (But please, can you e-mail your address, just in case). On your B-day, instead of the $500, I will post that I sent you Tkts to fly to Brazil during Carnival (Mardi-Gras). What do you think?" -Posted by: Anne (from Brazil) October 25, 2005 at 05:05 PM
Note: Anne from Brazil has no interest in flying to Arizona for a bucket of chicken. KFC happens to be a nickname she and the misfits cooked up extra crispy for a certain poster...

Why are you stalking Katiecoolady, Truth Teller?

What do I think? I think you are one sick woman, Anne Curi!

The Eye of the Storm

Wikipedia describes Hurricane Katrina as the costliest and one of the deadliest hurricanes in the history of the United States. It was the sixth-strongest Atlantic hurricane ever recorded and the third-strongest landfalling U.S. hurricane ever recorded. Katrina formed in late August during the 2005 Atlantic hurricane season and devastated much of the north-central Gulf Coast of the United States. Most notable in media coverage were the catastrophic effects on the city of New Orleans, Louisiana.

Katrina is estimated to be responsible for $81.2 billion (2005 US dollars) in damages, making it the costliest hurricane in U.S. history. The storm killed at least 1,836 people, making it the deadliest U.S. hurricane since the 1928 Okeechobee Hurricane. Criticism of the federal, state and local governments' reaction to the storm was widespread and resulted in an investigation by the United States Congress and the resignation of FEMA head Michael Brown.

Loretta Serrano had her own brand of criticism regarding the Katrina disaster:

"Unfortunately, I can't see the future. I do know that bad things happen to bad people, and I do wish that the scum of New Orleans had all drowned in the flood, like an Old Testament purge. I expect most of them survived. Like cockroaches. And they are coming to a city near you." -Posted by loretta on September 8, 2005 09:38 AM @

There's another tempest brewing on the horizon with the eye of the storm located in Ohio. Hurricane Loretta, the woman who has spent over three years tracking down IP's, posting rewards on the WWW, utilizing the US Postal Service for diabolical purposes, following crime cases, analyzing parents of crime victims under a microscope, and threatening to expose real life names of those that criticize her online behavior, has FAILED to suppress a common childhood infectious disease over the last TWO YEARS!

It doesn't take a medical degree to realize that ten incidents of the same infection over the course of two years is NOT NORMAL! What happens when there is shared parenting with two households? Everyone involved has the responsibility of implementing preventive measures. In this day and age there is no justifiable reason for this type of infection to last so long. None, nada, zilch! Who's obstructing progress? Take a guess!

Loretta Serrano, you own it!

1. If you have not taken this child to a physician within the last year you are negligent.
2. If you say a phantom nurse gave you a diagnosis over the phone you are mindless.
3. If you refused to give that phone # to the child's dad you are delinquent.
4. If you think swimming in chlorine water kills most everything you are stupid.
5. If you and your son haven't been tested for the problem you are derelict.
6. If you don't realize this is a public health issue you are irresponsible.
7. If you think ten incidents are considered "extremely common" you are an imbecile.
8. If you allowed $$ to discourage you from seeking medical attention you are a sleaze.
9. If you think cutting off communication is prudent you need counseling.
10. If you lack the ability to resolve this uncomplicated problem you are incompetent.

Date: Wed, 16 Aug 2006 12:55:17 -0400

Dear Ms. Loveliness, Please do not contact me via email, phone, letter or other means in any way unless it is an emergency situation regarding my daughter, Little Doe. Please be advises that any futher contact will be considered harassment. Thank you for your cooperation."

As previously stated, Loretta loves to make up the rules only to break them. Serrano's bootlickers promptly sent e-mails to Miss Loveliness containing depraved accusations along with assurances that they would support Loretta come hell or high water.

In the most demented act of desperation I have ever witnessed, Loretta and her understudies sent troublesome e-mails to a handful of critics accusing them of participating in a conspiracy to take her children away from her. It's quite a fascinating read to see her give such power to people who lack the potential to have any affect on her personal life, particularly in child custody matters. The composition ended with Loretta's typical goofy shakedown...

"You're the last one standing, Mxxxxx. And you're all alone. I know your name, where you live and will pursue action against you if you continue this charade. You have zero, zip, nada excuse to slander me. You need to stop. Now. I've had all I'm going to take. Have a nice day." Loretta Serrano

And from DeeGee Whitney...

"I will support Loretta, including financially, in any legal action she deems necessary to file against your actions. You have violated a child's privacy, and demeaned her publicly to the point where it could conceivably cause harm."

The harm has already been caused by a mother's obvious lack of concern, DeeGee!

Noun 1. infectious disease - a disease transmitted only by a specific kind of contact

The harm can't be cured online. It can't be stopped with threatening e-mails about ludicrous lawsuits. The harm will keep spreading unless your girl wakes up and becomes proactive! It isn't anything difficult to overcome. Nine reinfections in two years. Do the math!


2/14/05 - Slacker Moms Unite!

"While I attend to my kids’ primary needs: food, clothing, shelter, education, medical care, opportunities for enrichment, a safe neighborhood and more toys than I care to admit, I am not "Miss Barbara," and I encourage their independent play. I have learned the hard way that in order to maintain a manageable level of sanity, I need a creative outlet or two, several hours of quiet time, and personal space. "

4/14/05 - The Party’s Over

"Then there are those parents who refuse to sacrifice their self-indulgence, or defer gratification, or involve themselves in their children’s educational or social activities and, instead, orbit from a distance with only peripheral awareness. These parents are unfit. If their children miraculously escape harm from outsiders, they are surely harmed by the neglect."

Helpful Hints, Finishing Touches

Since the apartment was clean and the refrigerator stocked with food, Loretta Serrano's misfits shifted gears as suggestions headed in a different direction!

But first, a word from our sponsor: the Department of Children and Family Services in Cuyahoga County, Ohio.

Fact: According to the Ohio Revised Code, Section 2151.421, there is a list of professionals who work with children that are mandated to report suspected cases of abuse or neglect. Among the professionals listed are: Administrators or employees of a child day care center as well as school teachers, school employees, and school authorities.

Ohio law protects any mandated reporter from civil or criminal liability and anyone else making a report in good faith from criminal and civil liability even if the report cannot be proven. By law, the department is required to protect the identity of the reporter.

Loretta Good luck with your inspection tomorrow. Keep us posted. Miss Loveliness sounds like a real prize. It's heartwarming when two such wonderful souls get together. -Posted by Utahgirl at August 22, 2004 11:25 PM

Loretta, be sure to put away the duct tape you use on the kidlets. lol I know you will pass the inspection with flying colors, much to the dismay of "Miss Lovliness". Most importantly, I am sorry L has to be subjected to this devious creature. -Posted by Anne-SC at August 23, 2004 08:42 AM

Loretta -- turn around and demand that CPS inspect faux-wifey's place too, since your daughter stays there sometimes. Tell them that if they're going to inspect yours, they have to inspect HERS as well. Because you are concerned about your daughter's safety over there. And when they find out where your daughter has to sleep (opposed to where she used to sleep over there), perhaps there will be a pok-mark on their record (or such). -Posted by feistyALgal at August 23, 2004 10:55 AM

Thanks for all the well wishing. I am not the least bit concerned. My apartment needs a good cleaning once a year, anyway. It was overdue! I even found some things I have been looking for for months! Meanwhile, as far as "sic-ing" the CPS people on Miss Loveliness, since I know that Little Doe's main danger there is psychological (and grows weaker every day because she is getting older and smarter and hip to Miss L's tricks) I am not going to waste the precious resources and time of the CPS caseworker to send her (or her associate in the next county) over to Miss L's house.

I refuse to play these games. Let them send the freaking SWAT over here. Send the marines! Send the young mormon men in ties! Send the Jehovah witnesses! Send the Avon Lady! Send the Fuller Brush Man! (rip off) Send the Kirby vacuum guy! (Had one already)

OK? Eff her and the horse she had to shoot. Meanwhile, if she and Mr. L decide to take me back to CSEA, well, ha ha ha ha ha. As Schultz would say, "I know nussink!" -Posted by loretta at August 23, 2004 11:06 AM

That's the right attitude- Eff-em -Posted by Redleg at August 23, 2004 11:48 AM

Trying to understand the situation. Is Loretta being scrutinized, her moterhood questionned as a fit mother? Good luck to you, Loretta! What an experience one has to live thru! There is something fishy about this Miss Loveliness. If I understood, she is your ex's wife or girlfriend? Does she reads your blog, even enter obnoxious posts? Could that be?

Remember that strange post on a Thursday or Friday night when all were making fun of Gnarlene? We were laughing so much, and just before everyone went to bed, there was this strange post, even questionning something such as the safety of your children? It sounded strange to me, as if someone knew you well, but yet again it could be me interpreting it wrongly. It was posted just before your trip to CA. It was out of caracter with all of your posters. Good energy coming your way! Impatient to hear from you! Good advice coming from all your dedicated friends, people who care! -Posted by Elisa at August 23, 2004 02:04 PM

This saga started back in March when Little Doe was visited at school by a CPS caseworker who was given the case after two "urgent - child in danger" phone calls came in on the tip line. Judging by the eventual interview I had with the caseworker, I realized that the "tips" came from Miss Loveliness, Little Doe's dad's girlfriend. Miss L is not married to Mr. L, and I never married him, either.

Anyhoo, the last time I spoke with the CPS woman, she told me she was closing the case. Apparently, because the first time she came over (and I wasn't home, because it was like 4:00 in the afternoon) she never had an official "home visit." So, that's what she's coming tonight at 6 to do. She told me it would take 5 - 10 minutes. She has to do it as a formality to close the case. She agrees the complaints are unwarranted and all the allegations are poopitus.

I won't go into the allegations, but suffice it to say, they were pretty hilarious, including that I walk around the house nekkid, smoking cigarettes. Who knows if Miss L reads here. I would not be surprised. She knows I write about the SP case, but if she wants to download my jokes and try to present them as fact, I have my website disclaimer on the front page.

The First Amendment protects my freedom of speech - "satire" is exempt from lawsuits. Just ask Al Franken. -Posted by loretta at August 23, 2004 02:12 PM

I realize CPS has to do what they have to do - but isn't there something you can do - Mrs. Loviness is really wasting time of the CPS when they should be out looking at the true child endangerment cases. You would think we could have a double edge sword - I just dont think people like that should get away with false allegations. -Posted by Johnna at August 23, 2004 02:24 PM

"Who knows if Miss Loveliness reads here. I wouldn't be surprised."
Golly. She's literate? Wonders never cease! -Posted by Utahgirl at August 23, 2004 04:11 PM

heh. Not very, Utahgirl. I'm not even certain if she is a high school gradjit. -Posted by loretta at August 23, 2004 04:12 PM

I could be off target, but my sensibilities tell me the complaint originated within the school system. Why would a caseworker visit a school before going to the child's home? What astonishes me more is how everyone willingly buys into a one-sided version of the story... hook, line, and sinker. Fast forward to a response aimed at comments regarding Loretta blogging about being turned into CPS numerous times.

Usenet - From: "Loretta" @ Thurs 10 Nov 2005 19:23
No, that's not why they came. It was 3 times, and all of them were false allegations. I have the letters to prove it. Do you want me to fax you the copies? Do you know how often CPS gets bogus calls from idiots like Miss Loveliness? Do you know that your tax dollars are being wasted by people like that? When there are real children with needs and who are suffering from actual problems?

Do you know that the next time Miss Loveliness calls CPS that the prosecutor will be informed? Do you know that it constitutes harassment?

After three years of being bashed and lied about on the WWW by Loretta Serrano and company, Miss Loveliness defends herself...

Misfit's Helpful Hints - Part 2

The helpful hints kept coming. In fact, one reader emerged from lurking just to give her opinion. This gal has the CPS inspection process down to a science. I will refer to her as "lurker" since she's not a regular poster.

Loretta, I'm sorry to hear you're having to deal with CPS again. All the cleaning you have done sounds great and I'm sure you had planned to do that sooner or later anyway. (I'm going to do it too one of thesedays. ) It depends on the caseworker assigned to you but most of them don't mind clutter unless it's a safety hazard. They judge cleanliness more on sanitary or unsanitary than on whether or not you can write your name in the dust on your coffee table.

I would guess the first place they will look will be in your kitchen and specifically inside your refrigerator and your food pantry. S/he will want to see an adequate supply of healthy nourishing food. If you're running low on milk, eggs, fresh fruit etc., you'll probably want to make a quick run to the market. Or borrow some food from neighbor Dan's refrigerator. heh

Another suggestion -- if you haven't already done so -- make sure you have some of the children's 'artwork' displayed on the refrigerator door and some family snapshots also. If you don't have any artwork handy, give them paper and crayons and let them get busy now. Display as many photos as you can of the children when they were obviously happy and having a great time. Frame them and set them on the coffee table if you can. It doesn't matter if they were at the pool or a family cookout or whatever as long as they show them to be healthy and happy. Make sure you have some of your son but let more of them be your daughter or the two of them together. And of course, a few that includes you would be nice.

Saturate a cotton ball or two with Vanilla extract and hide them somewhere in the kitchen. It gives the house a great smell that suggests you have been baking. :-) I'm sure everything will be fine but I'll keep you in my thoughts anyway if you don't mind. -Posted by Lurker at August 22, 2004 07:22 PM

Make sure there is fruit out in a bowl -- it shows easy access to food. -Posted by feistyALgal at August 22, 2004 07:34 PM

I heard putting some cinnamon on a burner and heating it for a few minutes to make the house smell like something has been baked. -Posted by Barbara at August 22, 2004 07:40 PM

Oh, heck, this place is so clean, I'm not worried about it. The fridge is empty, but I have an excuse. I just got back from a trip. Besides, I never buy a lot of groceries, I don't have room. I shop like the French, about three times a week. -Posted by loretta at August 22, 2004 07:46 PM

Loretta -- I would strongly advise at least put a few things in the fridge -- even if you have a good reason (you just got back from atrip), the case worker may still have a problem with that. -Posted by feistyALgal at August 22, 2004 07:51 PM

I shop like the French too Loretta but I think I would put a few basics in the fridge for the meeting. -Posted by Nan at August 22, 2004 08:15 PM

Sheesh! Never mind what I had to remove from the bookcases - forensic science, criminal law, how to murder people, arsenic made easy, three ways to get away with moidah...the whole thing. I had to put up the "Cat in the Hat' and all my cookbooks. Oh, I look so domestick now!! -Posted by loretta at August 22, 2004 08:28 PM

Well if that vanilla doesn't get rid of the dead body smell, throw a couple of Bounce sheets underneath the chair and couch cushions! Put a little bleach and water in a spray bottle and do just a little"touch up" in the a.m. If you've got a vacuum cleaner that uses bags, stuff a Bounce sheet in there too! Don't know how it works with bagless ones, haven't tried it yet. -Posted by lighthouselover at August 22, 2004 08:29 PM

Hi Loretta, I just got caught up on the comments, and wanted to wish you good luck today! Every time my wonderful friend in a small Vermont village had Social Services sent to her home by her mean-ex, she baked bread before they arrived, and they always gave her glowing reports! An easier way to create that ambience would be a package of ginger bread -just add water, stir, and bake! -Posted by Vermonter at August 23, 2004 11:42 AM

Loretta, I would recommend putting some food in the fridge. CPS just made a little surprise visit to Mrs. Chokeman's house at the request of the police (just this past Friday). The first thing they did was check for food. They also asked her for two personal references...just FYI. They spot-checked the other rooms, and that was it. I was one of the aforementioned references and they have yet to call me thus far. -Posted by Surfie at August 23, 2004 12:31 PM

You'll all be happy to know I went and bought $67 worth of groceries (and I'm not done, yet.) I bought apples and bananananas and salad mixes, cereal, oatmeal, chicken, a few boxes of Stouffers (hey, it's the good stuff) and lunch food. Oh...and a big BOX O WINE and some pints of cheap Smirnoff flavored vodka (they make it down the street) and Zig Zags and a couple of cases of Little Debbies. -Posted by loretta at August 23, 2004 01:20 PM

I am always joking about drug paraphernalia and booze, because it is so funny to me. It's a running joke in my life, so don't take it seriously. -Posted by loretta at August 23, 2004 01:33 PM

Misfit's Helpful Hints - Part 1

Whether you do Spring cleaning, Fall cleaning, or simply wait until the caseworker from Children's Protective Services schedules an inspection, Loretta Serrano and her misfits offer some helpful hints.

Ok, I found some "scrubbing bubbles" (I don't know where I got it, because I have boycotted Dow for twenty years), I found some Fullerbrush products that I had forgotten I had (rip off) that I used on the floors and on the carpet. I have the carpet high traffic areas shampooed right now, and the scrubbing bubbles working on the terlit and tile. I will finish off with the window cleaner (a great product I got fromState chemical, so it's probably toxic as all get out) and put away all the dishes and clothes.

At least it will smell nice and clean in here. After all, perception is everything! It is really quite nice. Even my mother would approve. -Posted by loretta at August 22, 2004 01:10 PM

What an obnoxious person this "Miss Loveliness is to make you go through all this! Rest assured that her Karma will be adjusted accordingly for all her efforts to sabotage your existence. -Posted by Nadine at August 22, 2004 01:18 PM

Oh, Nadine, don't feel bad. It needed doin' anyway!
So far I have shampooed the carpets, cleaned the kitchen and bathroom floor on my knees of course (the old fashioned way) but luckily we're talking some small floors, here. I have vacuumed the house, got the hoses out and did the ceiling and the sofa cushions and behind the furniture. I got all the cobwebs and residue I hadn't bothered with. I pulled up the oriental rug and vacuumed underneath, too. I dusted and waxed the furniture that's really wood, and cleaned the stuff that isn't. I pine sol'ed the walls in the hallway and bathroom.

Little Boy and Little Doe cleaned the furniture in their room, and I have done the usual bathroom stuff now. I just got a new shower curtain a few weeks ago, so that looks nice. I laundered all the towels and rugs yesterday morning. I have nothing left to do except my room. arrggh! -Posted by loretta at August 22, 2004 01:24 PM

I have everything stacked up in my room that needs putting away or hidden! I will run all of it over to Dan's tomorrow. Meanwhile, I will make the beds (which will get messed up again before tomorrow night) and pretend to be finished! -Posted by loretta at August 22, 2004 01:42 PM

Congratulations on the cleaning, Loretta. I'm sure you will pass with flying colours! I'm sure Miss Lovliness thinks you are taking all these trips on the child support, and dressing the kids in rags... -Posted by vero at August 22, 2004 02:22 PM

Oh, I'm sure you're right, Vero. That's what Astro thinks, too. The fact that I went to Collyforny twice (what nerve of me to take two weeks' vacation in ten years!) really rotted her holey socks! The ironic thing is, if Mr. Loveliness takes me back to CSEA for a review of the child support, he will only wind up paying me more! Will he listen? noooooo. Wait until he finally gets around to taking me back to the agency. He'll faint dead away.

Then I'll have to worry about Miss Loveliness murdering Little Doe to get out of paying $800 a month. The thing is, Ohio is very punative. It's almost a de-incentive for non-custodial parents to work. The best thing (and cheapest) is to live in the same school district and have truly shared custody. But, would Mr. Loveliness move? nooooo! Thus, he will get hammered big time if he takes me back. I tried to warn him. I also reminded him that he passed up the golden opportunity to keep the state out of our affairs and just strike a deal with me personally, but noooooo!

Meanwhile, she is probably filling his head with dollar signs of the savings she thinks they'll see if he takes me back. Unfortunately, five years have passed and needless to say, I would get a big cost of living adjustment. With an average of $250 a month in daycare expenses (much less than the $500 it was two years ago) and my health insurance, with our incomes staying the same as 1999 (and he must have gotten a raise by now) the award would be over $800 a month. It would serve them both right to drag me back to the agency. I should go back to Collyforny for Christmas just to spite that wench! -Posted by loretta at August 22, 2004 02:30 PM

Yes, I could take him back any time. The problem is, if I do, and I get more money (which I will) that will just torque up Miss Loveliness' wrath. I would not put it past her to poison Little Doe or cause an"accident" or attempt to murder her in order to get out of paying the money. Seriously. I can't prove it, but I believe she would harm Little Doe. I know Little Doe has a guardian angel and that is why she has not succumbed to Miss Loveliness' previous attempts.

A judge would laugh me out of court if I tried to present that suspicion, so I just have to hope and pray nothing bad happens. I don't want to exacerabate the problem by taking him back and getting more money. If he takes ME back, that's another story. Then, it serves him right, I shrug my shoulders, and Miss Loveliness has no one to blame but herself. -Posted by loretta at August 22, 2004 03:06 PM

Well, you don't even want to hear what "Alfie" owes me. He'll wind up in federal prison some day. No great loss. He's worthless, anyway. -Posted by loretta at August 22, 2004 03:16 PM


It's horrible that you have to fear for your daughter's safety, Loretta. That thought would never have occurred to me. -Posted by Vero at August 22, 2004 03:24 PM

Miss Loveliness responds...

Oh brother! I decided to clean underneath the electric stove top (it's a new oven so it's not that bad) and I took those silver (well, they used to be silver) trays from under the ranges off and put them in the sink. I reached under the sink and saw a can that said, "Easy On..." Icouldn't read it, but saw the "Easy" part and thought it was oven cleaner. I sprayed it on the silver trays and the ceramic part of the stove under the range and nothing happened. Well, it got wet. Then I looked at the can and saw that I had just sprayed ironing sizing all over the stove! HA! I found the oven cleaner. It's "Easy OFF!" What a maroooooon. -Posted by loretta at August 22, 2004 06:40 PM

I am going to camoflage the only bad drip tray from the stove with my new Calphalon skillet. It will look like I'm ready to sautee something delish for dinner! -Posted by loretta at August 22, 2004 07:18 PM

Kids Count

Ohio Governor Bob Taft designated August as Child Support Awareness Month. The theme for 2006 is "Kids count ... make sure they can count on you. Child support matters."

And it does matter. It comes as no surprise that statistics indicate kids benefit when both parents work together to take care of their emotional, medical, and financial needs. This holds true even when parents don't live together, are divorced, or never marry each other.

Never let it be said that Loretta Serrano isn't
family oriented...

I have no choice but to contact your family. -Posted by: loretta at November 23, 2005 10:36 PM

If I can find you, I can find your vulnerability. -Posted by: loretta at November 25, 2005 01:15 PM

Notice to those posting on Kennel the Sequel: I will not hesitate for one second to post your names, addresses, phone numbers, photos, personal ads, other nicks, forum links, pics of your pets, kids, grandchildren, front lawn sprinklers or UPS man at ANY TIME if you continue your MUTT ways. Got that, (Fill in a name, any name)? You have been advised. Now, have a nice day. -Posted by: loretta at December 19, 2005 11:33 AM

In addition, please be advised all above mutts and all future mutts: I will do anything in my power - contact your employers, family, dog walkers, hairdressers and anyone with a pulse who knows you to expose your secret life on the Internet. All your nicks from the past and present, all the forums, all the things you type about me or other people from this blog, everything you do will be monitored. -Posted by: loretta at December 19, 2005 01:22 PM

If I knew your name, I would be addressing you with it right now. I didn't bluff about that. I will address any Mutt I see here or anywhere else (even Websleuths, because I am back in there, too), with your real names. -Posted by: loretta at January 2, 2006 11:39 PM

I will also have no difficulty finding out where you work and assembling a package of evidence of your activities to mail to your employer. If you are posting on his dime, that may prove a tad awkward; especially if I can demonstrate that your IPs match IPs of people posting vile, slanderous remarks over in the sequels on company time. If you don't work, there is no doubt plenty of incriminating information about you from your very own posts on message boards across cyberspace that can be linked to your new "hats. -Posted by: loretta

If any of you steps one paw outside the kennel and comes here, to Usenet, to Websleuths, or anywhere I recognize you, be warned that I will greet you with your real name, your pet's name (if I know it), your kids' names (if you have any), your husband's name (if you have one); I'll ask about the weather in your town, and I'll mention your name in every subsequent post. In bold letters. -Posted by: loretta

Over the last few months, I have tracked down (with the helpof a number of people), almost all of the kennel mutts. They have left IPs, nicknames and blog post trails, and all of them have made the mistake of giving someone, somewhere, their real names and email addresses. -Posted by: loretta

Good morning! More interesting information on (Real Name). Former husband, (Real Name), age 35. They lost a baby in 1997 named (Child's Name) to be eggsact), not sure if that was because (Real Name) was physically incapable or for some other reason at the time, but needless to say, she is unfit and there is one less child in the world to suffer her abuse. -Posted by loretta

I suggested that (Real Name) would make a very poor parent, and that her baby was better off dead. Well, God knows what He's doing. He works in mysterious ways. -Posted by: loretta at January 7, 2006 07:50 PM

I can't think of anything more incriminating and vulnerable than the brand of lawn sprinkler one owns! Can you?

They should put Loretta Serrano in charge of finding Jimmy Hoffa's remains!

But, where's Alfie?

WWW's Most Wanted

After bombarding Marlene Newell with obsolete currency and extinguishing the distant flame in Alfie’s sparse life, Loretta Serrano pondered the virtues of Cyberstalking.

"Cyberstalkers frequently follow their targets around the net, frequenting in chat rooms, message boards, newsgroups or mailing lists in which the target participates. At times they will also attempt to form relationships with those who are friendly with the target in order to get more information about the target."

I think that about sums it up in a nutshell. -Posted by loretta at October 8, 2005 01:35 AM

Not being the real friendly type, Slugger Serrano chose a unique method to pursue her quarry.

RetzQ wrote @ 10-08-2005, 9:23 AM


I am offering a $500 reward to anyone who can correctly identify the woman who posts as "Just Amazed" on Usenet and over at Anita's site, aka "Interested" originally. Her IP headers can be found on her Usenetposts or I have her IP here as well.

According to her, she is married to an ex-detective. She is in the Mxxxxxxxx area according to her IP, but Ken traced it to Wxxxxxx, KS. She claims to have a second home in Cxxxxxxxxx, grew up in Cxxxxxxxxx and is returning there soon.

She claims to be going to the Cam Brown trial, so CG and Sadie might beable to find her there.

She claims to a lot of sordid personal history and e-mail me for that. I'm not sure if any of it is even true. I have e-mails from her that may aid in your search. This woman is stalking me and my children and needs to be reported and STOPPED. Any tips that lead to her identification will be rewarded as well.

I am going to sweeten the pot: $200 REWARD on the real Identiy of "Anita Richman/Anita Newman/Anita Newname/et al." Or more. Depending on who wants to ante up. I have the $$ - and some.

When politely asked to remove the bounty notices or action would be taken, Loretta Serrano responded:

Oh, yeah? Where is the Eff Bee Eye, Jxxxxx? Where are the lawyers? Who is going to call me? What are you going to do, exactly? Are you calling the pohhleece? The mayor? Your friends in government? You Private Eye buddies?

Since it's been a few weeks since you made this THREAT, I was just wondering when you were going to make good on it. When can I expect to hear from the AUTHORITIES?

Not only does she hack into the email account of the "persona non grata" that deserted her and her little boy six years ago, she will also communicate with your husband if you dare to criticize her.

From: RetzQ @ Wed, Oct 26 2005 4:45 pm

My promise to send Ms. Lxxx S's husband the heads up about what she was doing was followed up on. Just because she has indicated that it hasn't does not make it so. She is unwilling to admit what has really occurred and why she has been very scarce - completely absent over the weekend, as a matter of fact, and will continue to remain very scarce. The wheels are in motion here. I don't bluff.

Loretta seems to have a bottomless cash reserve that she spends with reckless abandon.

Send In The Clowns Encore

Anyone that followed the Scott Peterson trial will remember Marlene Newell as a staunch defender of the accused and owner of the "Scott is Innocent" site. Whether you disagree with Newell’s point of view is a non-issue because the fact is Marlene and her followers had as much right to express their opinions, as did Loretta Serrano hers. Marlene also had a right to run her board the way she saw fit and those that didn’t like it had the same option that Loretta offers to her disgruntled readership … click the X in the top right corner of your screen.

Loretta Serrano is known to manufacture rules and then be the first one to break them. She subscribes to the "Do as I say, not as I do" mentality, which is probably why she spearheaded a campaign designed to harass Marlene Newell five days after Scott Peterson’s conviction. Newell’s solicitation of funds didn’t appeal to the blog mistress who otherwise enjoys reminding her disciples that she cheerfully accepts gratuities via Paypal. In fact, the Paypal logo occupies a prominent position at the domain’s main page for compensation purposes. Let's take a look at another day in the lives of the misfit clowns.


Good Morning Everybuddy!
Just for today--be yourself.

I think everyone should send her a piece of foreign currency to that PO box and see what she is willing to do to exchange it!

Apparently Lisa doesn't equate Loretta's Paypal button with begging.

Recognition from the San Mateo Daily Journal, Feb 18, 2005:

Marlene Newell, owner of the “” Web site, has experienced the vigilantism of the He-Did-Its firsthand. When her site went live earlier this year, Newell received crank calls throughout the night and letters were written to her church demanding her excommunication. Hate mail filled her e-mail in-box, all because of Newell’s stance defending Peterson’s constitutional rights.

One of Newell’s biggest detractors is the operator of a blog “,” Loretta Serrano. Serrano is clearly in the He-Did-It camp, and several lengthy and self-absorbed editorials can be found on her site. Serrano’s SII-bashing diatribes began to crescendo after Newell’s recent appearances on Court TV. So bitter is this one-sided rivalry, that Serrano and her followers secretly scour the forums to gather meat for another Misfit name-calling editorial.

Normally I would let these juvenile antics slide, except I noticed the pubescent pantomime was performed two days before the misfit clowns willingly injected themselves into the personal life of a complete stranger, namely Alfie’s latest fling, Eve. If these two entries don’t give you acid indigestion, I don’t know what will.

Pepto-Bismol anyone? ...

Send In The Clowns

Don't you love farce?
My fault I fear.
I thought you'd want what I want. Alfie, my dear.
But where are the clowns?
Quick, send in the clowns.
Don't bother, they're here.

~Stephen Sondheim

Whether or not Loretta Serrano knew she missed out on the St. Patrick’s Day prosperity is yet to be determined. One has to wonder how the unexpected largesse escaped her detection considering the camaraderie between herself and Alfie’s ‘ex’.

"Over the past few years, I have received a few updated pictures of his oldest son in correspondence with his ex-wife, and "met" his sister via e-mail messages." -6/16/05

Perhaps the ‘ex’ simply didn’t want to bother Loretta with such trivial matters? On the other hand, I hardly think Loretta would have dedicated a 3/17/04 entry to her Irish lineage had she been aware of the judgment. My hunch is Loretta’s private investigator slipped up and celebrated with one too many green beers that day.

Nevertheless, Loretta has her priorities and Alfie’s social life remained her primary focus. After hacking into his e-mail account and discovering he was communicating with a new squeeze in November, Loretta summoned the misfit clowns who engaged in what can only be described as a Vaudeville act.


I can't believe what I just read. Alfie's ability to write all the right things absolutely floored me. I can really see how masterful an "N" can be and the ability to cater to her precise needs is eerie. Thanks for sharing, it is very helpful for others to see the extent of an "N's" deceit. -Posted by DetroitPaula at November 20, 2004 12:48 PM

Yeah, nauseating, isn't it? I am torn between hilarity and disgust. I do have her phone numbers, but I hate to blow my cover by e-mailing her or calling her, because then Alfie might blow a gasket. Let's see how it plays out first. -Posted by loretta at November 20, 2004 12:51 PM

Love, Love, Love the Entry, Kinda like knowing you are about to see a train wreck. He sure has all the code words down pat. I can't believe Alfie didn't change his password. Of course, men are somewhat of an enigma. -Posted by Lesa at November 20, 2004 12:51 PM

I think one of the Secret Posting gals will have to warn "Eve." Someone from the area might be the most effective.The plan is to warn her by telling her that Alfie is also corresponding with another woman, and to say he inadvertantly forwarded an e-mail using it as a template and forgot to remove the original address. The best way to discourage these women is to arouse their jealousy and betrayal instincts. They don't listen to reason. They only get alarmed when they think he's two-timing them. Hey, I know the drill. -Posted by loretta at November 20, 2004 12:54 PM

Hey Loretta, Since they have talked about pictures, I bet she would be interested in accidentally getting one of him and his forgotten son. -Posted by Lesa at November 20, 2004 12:59 PM

Loretta, don't blow your abilities to read those emails. Eve or no Eve I think in the long run you need that ability to keep an eye on this bastard. Really he is disgusting and to think he has the cutest son so full of energy and warmth this side of the Mississippi and he doesn't even acknowledge him! -Posted by DetroitPaula at November 20, 2004 01:03 PM

Today's wallpaper is of primroses, in honor of the path down which Alfie is leading poor Eve. -Posted by loretta at November 20, 2004 01:05 PM

For whatever reason, Alfie uses his first son as sort of pity-fodder. He gains sympathy from women when they are told he can't see his son because his ex is a psycho, or whatever. He gains so much ground from that, he has incorporated it into his repertoire. Now, them knowing about a little kid he abandoned, that's a horse of a different color! -Posted by loretta at November 20, 2004 01:07 PM

So someone with good writing skills (leaves me out) .. should compose a letter to her saying that she received her letter by mistake ARRR -Posted by Ponder at November 20, 2004 01:12 PM

"Just imagining you brings a big smile to my face."

I heard and read this heart-warming remark several times from my ex, later to read it verbatim in prolific e-mails he sent to a number of other women with whom he was corresponding or attempting to lure into his lair of lasciviousness. What he is really saying is, "Just imagining how I am getting over on you makes me smile with smug, self-satisfaction, knowing what a sucker you are, and how much I am going to enjoy taking advantage of your naiveté and generosity!"

~~~~~~~~From the first entry of "The Narcissist's Handbook of Romance." Anyone who needs a review: LINK Let's see how many of these lines show up in future correspondence. -Posted by loretta at November 20, 2004 01:16 PM

He never talks about ex number one, and since 2000 has not admitted I or Little Boy exist. When his last girlfriend found out about me, she was nonplussed. She let him hang around for another year or so, but considering she was a junkie, that's not hard to believe. -Posted by loretta at November 20, 2004 02:06 PM

Frankly, I think it's because him being 44 years old and not having any Exes is just too hard to swallow. He likes to use the ex as his myth of learning his lessons about life, blah blah. Plus, since some of his family still live in Houston, as do his ex and son, it's easier just to admit to their existance in case his victim takes the bait and the story comes out. Little Boy and I are easy to omit from the personal history, but he will have to be careful not to let his new love get in touch with any of his sisters or ex wife! Then the jig is up. -Posted by loretta at November 20, 2004 02:09 PM

That latest stunt from Alfie is horrible. I think you are better off having him out of Little Boy's life. I have seen ex-fathers take the opportuntity to lie their side of the story to the child and you don't need that. This is a job for the SPG. Can she write as if she is Eve and say "you're busted Alfie, I know about your trail of tears in Cleveland". He'll come up with a tale and she'll say WTH. -Posted by Pegasus at November 20, 2004 02:12 PM

Peg, we can create a fake e-mail address with her name in it somewhere. He is not all that observant and may not notice the subtle change in it. If we cause a Shakespearean farce, it would be very amusing, but he will figure out it originated from me and then I'll lose access to his email account! He has already had three e-mail accounts since we split up, but he always winds up sending me something down the road, and I find out what his new address is. -Posted by loretta at November 20, 2004 02:15 PM

Isn't he still estranged from the sisters, though? It disturbs me that Eve doesn't capitalize her sentences especially that biggie giveaway "I." That screams no self esteem even before you read her words. -Posted by Astrologer at November 20, 2004 02:21 PM

someone write it and I will send it from Canada .. -Posted by Ponder at November 20, 2004 02:27 PM

Back to Miss California - let us not get too concerned yet. First of all, Alfie has no home, so he is probably boarding somewhere cheap, or in a homeless shelter and using the library computer. Thus, he will not invite her for a visit! Second, he has no way of getting to Collyforny unless Eve sends him a ticket. If we get wind of her offering that, we'll step in and intervene. I can hear the wheels in Ponder's mind churning as we speak! -Posted by loretta at November 20, 2004 02:42 PM

LOL Lo .. she needs to be saved. -Posted by Ponder at November 20, 2004 02:46 PM

Poor Eve. Alfie knows she is a lonely homeowner. The plea for a ticket should be coming soon with winter almost here. It's cold in OH for the next 6 months. Ok, back to the SPG. Let's have "EVE" send the very same letter only addressed to .oh-let's say Scott, and post it to Alfie by mistake? Would Alfie understand that he had received a form letter? Would he even care or just go on to the next sap? You're right, Loretta, you can't lose your access to this gold mine by tipping your hand. It sure is fun to plot, though. -Posted by Pegasus at November 20, 2004 03:02 PM

I agree with the conservative approach -- I LOVE it that you have access to his email account (I'm a pinch jealous, in fact), and you don't want to risk blowing your cover unless it looks like she's about to get taken.

Alfie grunted: "You have peaked my interest and I look forward to uncover more wonders regarding you."

Fall for this stuff online? Never in a million years. Lines like that have "loser" written all over them. These guys are SO all alike. -Posted by Hannah at November 20, 2004 05:28 PM

Another gem from the wonderful man who shares my home: I was reading him the 'Alfie' emails and he said, "Somebody needs to save those in case that woman ends up dead." -Posted by Barbara at November 20, 2004 05:50 PM

Oh, and for the record, I am mostly always right. I think I have been wrong once in recent memory. Otherwise, I am batting .900 -Posted by loretta at November 21, 2004 07:48 PM

How do you suppose the following squares with the portrait of Alfie living in a homeless shelter?

"Have you been able, Loretta, to pin down where he is supposedly working?"

I know better than to call child support because they won't tell me. I have been getting a whopping $80 a week since early November, so I am going to kind of miss that little windfall when he relocates. It could be months before he gets a new job. -Posted by loretta at December 10, 2004 01:58 PM

Dead Beat Dads - Part 2

A few months before Loretta Serrano introduced Alfie to the misfits through a cliff hanging mini-series, a Uniform Support notice was sent by certified mail to Edgar G. Serrano in Cleveland, Ohio. The notice was dated 6/4/03, which coincided with Loretta’s entry describing her daughter’s wedding odyssey. In fact, while Loretta attended the marriage ceremony, court records indicate that legal research was being conducted on case # DR-03-293041.

Uniform Interstate Family Support Act:

Loretta entertained her audience with chronicles of a wayward Alfie, the fastidious, suave, captivating Adonis she had the good fortune of meeting at one of those online personal ad sites. She wrote about their first date, captured the essence of a brief whirlwind courtship, and casually touched upon details of intimacies in their relationship, which resulted in a positive pregnancy test. Indeed, Alfie seemed like every woman’s dream come true until readers learned about his unconventional use of spray starch and inclination to dispose of diapers in a Frisbee fashion according to Loretta.

When the honeymoon was over, it came as no surprise that Alfie moved on with his life severing all personal and financial ties, a routine that lasted through 2003 when Loretta’s illustrative briefings about Alfie were in sharp contrast to the misfit’s introductory observations.

"Occasionally I hear from Alfie, usually when he misses curfew at a shelter or has worn out his welcome in the flophouse. As long as Alfie was an active addict, homeless, jobless, car-less and soulless, he was a persona non grata in our lives." -Posted by loretta at 08:12 PM

While Loretta was engrossed in determining the best way to spend her $400 US Treasury windfall, the following judgment was entered into Edgar's case record:


Within seven months an additional judgment was noted:


Destination: Houston!
Courtesy of: The Attorney General of Texas
Sponsored by: The Uniform Interstate Family Support Act
Directed by: The Cuyahoga County, Ohio Court of Common Pleas

Final tally:
G. Serrano – 2
Loretta Serrano – 0
Little Boy - 0
Edgar Serrano - "persona non grata"

Isn't it rich?
Isn't it queer,
Losing my timing this late
In my career?
And where are the clowns?
There ought to be clowns.
Well, maybe next year.

Dead Beat Dads - Part 1

On October 20, 2000 the state of Ohio filed a criminal complaint, on behalf of Loretta Serrano, in Avon Lake Municipal Court charging Edgar G. Serrano with domestic violence, a 1st degree misdemeanor. An Affidavit of Indigency was denied because the defendant’s income was too high. Edgar Serrano (Alfie) pled no contest and was found guilty on 10/26/2000. He chose the extended six-year payment plan to satisfy his $313.00 court debt and was sentenced to ten days in jail, which was twenty days shorter than Loretta’s suspended sentence from her ’98 assault conviction.

Case information:


One might assume the next logical step would be to seek child support through the proper agencies on behalf of the minor, but Loretta Serrano marched to the beat of a different drum.

Loretta wrote: "When I contacted Alfie’s ex-wife in October 2000 to make her aware of my existence and that of my little boy’s, and to warn her that Alfie might be headed back to Houston, she responded to my letter with surprise and curiosity. For the first year or so, Alfie attempted to poison my impressions of his family and ex-wife to discourage me from communicating with them, since he knew they would expose his many misrepresentations and fantasies.

For awhile, I resisted the temptation to defy his mandate that I avoid researching his background through friends and family in Texas; but when he went to Houston without us that autumn, I no longer worried about his wrath. I was much more interested in tracking down Little Boy’s relatives and establishing a relationship with them for his sake." – June 16, 2005

(Note: In October 2000, Alfie was headed to jail in Ohio... not Houston!)

"For example, in the early stages of my first break-up with Alfie (when he had been sent to jail and came out and was living with a co-worker), I was completely obsessed with where he was, who he was seeing, what he was doing, and his personal ads. I inserted myself into his fake love life and warned his potential victims of his history. Some of them ran, one or two of them took him anyway and lived to regret it. During that time, I almost wrecked my car in a blizzard after discovering he was about to move to Texas into some woman's home who thought he was the cat's pajamas.

His ex wife and I thwarted that move, too." -Posted by loretta at July 17, 2005 10:12 AM

I get a warm and fuzzy feeling knowing that Loretta developed a rapport with Alfie’s ex-wife. Even more pronounced, is the overwhelming joy of recognizing Loretta's chivalry by allowing the "ex" to participate in her dedicated effort to keep Alfie on the straight and narrow. But familiarity doesn’t deposit food on the table nor does it put clothes on a child’s back. Since Mrs. Serrano openly admits that child support payments from the deserter are few and far between, I presume Loretta’s indigent status made a remarkable pecuniary turnaround between 1998 and 2000.

So now, the question is… where’s the bash blog dedicated to Edgar G. Serrano (Alfie)? What’s up with that oversight, Anne Curi? The dirty rotten scoundrel absolutely deserves his own tribute blog! You can bet a month's wages Loretta has a file on Alfie that covers the distance from Rocky River to Houston!

You interfere in the life of a man that’s been supporting his daughter for ten years? A man who remains faithful to prescribed visitation arrangements? You construct a spite blog to humiliate his domestic partner who accepted the responsibility of caring for the child on those visits for the last decade? Edgar Serrano isn’t a blip on your radar screen for abandoning his son? Are you serious?

What kind of a friend are you, Anne Curi? If you’re capable of breathing life into deceased relatives and publishing false accusations about people you don’t know including a concocted history about their family just because they criticize Lady Disdain, you can certainly throw something together about a real life Dead Beat Dad! Don’t forget to write about the Serrano family reunion... the one Alfie didn’t attend.

Anne from Brazil aka TruthTeller?

What a joke!

Guest Entry: A Success Story

Laurie Coulter, author of "Two Homes" says that the secret to successful shared parenting begins with a positive outlook. While there are often feelings of anger and bitterness between parents, in order to co-parent successfully it’s vital that these emotions are put aside so that parents can "develop a parenting partnership based on the needs of the child rather than your own needs", says Coulter.

These impressive goals can be challenging to parents requiring a firm commitment by both parties. I believe the praiseworthy covenant calls for integrity, maturity, consistency, and perseverance in order to succeed. Attributes that are inadequate in Loretta Serrano’s character as indicated by her perpetual stubborn lack of cooperation.

I am pleased to present the following guest entry, which outlines a healthy approach to shared parenting. I offer the highest commendations to Claire for her unwavering dedication on behalf of her children's welfare.


I think that the difference between the way I view parenting, and the way you do, MOO is that I have consciously removed my own ego from the equation. Parenting is not about what I need or want, it is about what my child needs. I have tried to explain this previously, but perhaps it is not getting through.

I have had primary custody for most of their lives. At times, we switch it up for the sake of other circumstances - like when their step mom was pregnant and due to deliver her first baby, my kids went to live with their Dad for a year and a bit. Do you want to how that happened? At first, I was taken back by the request. It felt weird. Then, I talked to the kids about it, they were REALLY excited about the possibility of living with their Dad, whom they did not remember living with since we broke up when they were very small. They were also super excited about having a new sibling.

Then, I started thinking about my life in comparison to theirs. I was working full time, going to school part time and my kids were in full time daycare. They had never known their mom to be at home, to pick them up from school or drop them off at school, to attend field trips, to be able to come home after school and do after school activities, etc. When their step mom had the baby, she planned to stay home for a year. It made perfect sense for them to go there! They would have the opportunity to have the experience of living with their father, they would have more of a 'home' atmosphere, and be a part of their new siblings' first year of life.

The choice seemed obvious to me. I did what was good for THEM. I put aside my feelings of inadequacy, guilt, shame whatever. I didn't really have them anyway. But people were surprised, very surprised sometimes, that I would be willing to let them go. I just don't see them as commodities. And, I get from Cathy that she doesn't either. It's just about making the child feel loved, appreciated, WELCOME and nurtured.

It's my opinion that it is very immature and selfish to play ownership games with ex spouses. The only harm it inflicts is on the children. I don't have to like my ex husband, nor his wife. Really, that is completely inconsequential. The kids don't need to know about how I view them or their lives. It is how they feel that is important. That said, my ex and his wife and I all have a very good relationship now. It has had ups and downs, but never at the expense of our kids.

I am only relaying this information to show how easy, painless and helpful it can be to co-parent. A really great motto might be, "Don't sweat the small stuff." and I'm sure we all know that it is all small stuff. Thanks for letting me share, sorry for the length!

Well, it was pretty much decided that they would come back after she went back to work. During that year, I moved to the city where they lived which has been the most difficult part. This city is one of the most expensive areas in Canada. But we lived two blocks away from each other until just a few months ago, when I moved a little further. Still very close though.

Now, we have more of a split custody arrangement, which is actually to his benefit. I have one full time, and he has one full time although really they are both 50-50 here and there. That way, nobody pays anybody to alleviate the financial burden of child support.

I like it better this way, financially, because I am completely and absolutely independent financially from him. He likes it, obviously, because he doesn't have to pay any more. That said, it is a good thing I have a decent income (although it is never enough with teenagers!)

It's not "traditional", but it works for us. So, there is hope!

Back Story

In 2003, on slow Peterson news days, Loretta Serrano treated her readership to snippets of her personal life. She shared "Recovery Journals", preached about narcissism ad nauseum, and introduced ‘Jane Doe’ as Miss Loveliness in her entry about the 1998 altercation. Posters recollect how Loretta portrayed herself as the victim. A missing component in her version was the criminal conviction and the fact that Miss Loveliness was pregnant. Loretta was slick. She gathered sympathy from her supporters as she described risking life and limb driving through a blizzard to retrieve her daughter who she claimed was being 'unlawfully held'. The truth is, the blizzard was a figment of her imagination as was the fantasy hostage situation.

"It was snowing like hell when I left Mentor, which is in the "snow belt" on the east side, and it snowed like hell the next day when I had to go back to the MPD (not to be confused with the Modesto Pohleece Dept.) As I have been saying, Miss Nott has omitted many things from her side of the story. MANY."

"On 12/29/98 @ 19:45 hours, Smith had not contacted me or come into the MPD to complete a statement. This report will be forwarded to the city prosecutor for review of assault and aggravated trespass charges on Smith." -Reporting Officer, Ptl. M. Turek 360

And when a CPS caseworker scheduled an inspection of Loretta’s apartment in 2004, Miss Loveliness took the heat again as Loretta’s illusions spiraled into another dimension.

"Yes, I could take him back any time. The problem is, if I do, and I get more money (which I will) that will just torque up Miss Loveliness' wrath. I would not put it past her to poison Little Doe or cause an "accident" or attempt to murder her in order to get out of paying the money. Seriously. I can't prove it, but I believe she would harm Little Doe. I know Little Doe has a guardian angel and that is why she has not succumbed to Miss Loveliness' previous attempts.

A judge would laugh me out of court if I tried to present that suspicion, so I just have to hope and pray nothing bad happens. I don't want to exacerabate the problem by taking him back and getting more money. If he takes ME back, that's another story. Then, it serves him right, I shrug my shoulders, and Miss Loveliness has no one to blame but herself."

In an entry dated March 3, 2005, Loretta Serrano talked about Internet frauds. She described how the alleged charlatans never fooled her.

"Not me. I laughed at her, at the gullible people who believed her, and at her eventual implosion when the curtain was ripped open. " –Loretta

She went so far as to accuse a poster from a well-respected blog of perpetrating a scam on that site’s readership. She vehemently accused the woman of faking a cancer diagnosis without one scintilla of evidence to support her assertions. Loretta concluded her expose with a stern warning to her readership.

"Any message board moderator or website host who discovers one of their members or posters is a fraud and who does not address that issue or ban that person is committing a grievous disservice to their community. It is a complete breach of trust to be complicit with fraud. Read, comment and lurk at will, and if you misbehave, I will delete, ignore or ban you at will. I will also expose you if I believe you are a fraud." -Loretta

Staff reporters Justin Quiring and Wendy Shoofitz contributed to this report.
