Family Time - Game of Thrones Star Peter Dinklage Out With Wife and Daughter

Posted in: ,

Yesterday, Peter Dinklage was spotted out with his wife Erica Schmidt and daughter Zelig in Toronto where he's shooting a new movie. Tyrion is one of my favorite characters in Game of Thrones, and though I've not watched the series, I hear Peter Dinklage is giving a grand portrayal of that rapscalion.

In real life though, Peter Dinklage looks a homebody and a softie with his daughter whom he took into a park to have some baby fun. Whether he was pushing her on the swings or joining her on the slides, both father and daughter had big grins on their faces. Love it!

Posted in: , , ,

Dear Myne, I'm a regular follower of your blog. My boyfriend and I are very much in love with each other and in a serious relationship which is known to both our families and friends.

Obasanjo Says Feedback From Boko Haram Indicate Some of the Chibok Girls Will Never Return

Posted in: , ,

Olusegun Obasanjo, the former President of Nigeria, speaking on the girls kidnapped while at school about two months ago in Chibok, has expressed fears that the more than 200 abducted schoolgirls might never return again.

This is so heartbreaking and sickening to read. I'm so scared for those young girls and what they are going through, and then the parents who wake up each day without their children, and knowing the horrors they might be living through.

Obasanjo said during an interview on the Hausa Service of the British Broadcasting Corporation that Boko Haram would only probably release some of the girls that might be pregnant and finding it difficult to cater for their babies in the forest.
