My ever inspiring sister Carolyn and my mother.
1957. My Dad and step-mother. California. I was 16. My mother sent me out there and told me that maybe he could straighten me up. My attitude got negative because of all the moving we had been through. 3 schools in a year. I was in (Horse) Mann school and started to ditch school. But no one had straighten my dad out lol so we came back after 6 months. I went back to East Gary to enroll in school again. I will never forget the look on the lady's face, like oh not you again. When she asked me my address she had a smile on her face and said Jim I am sorry but you are one house in to New Chicago and must go to River Forest. I said to my self that's it, I quit. You know I am glad I quit. Although I didn't learn but basic reading, writing and arithmetic, I wasn't programmed with all the medical bull-shit. I had no respect for my parents, so it was easy for me to question the doctors when my daughter was adversely affected by the vaccines.

We won best hamburger in 1989. Our 2nd year in business. In 1990 we didn't place in the top 3. So I called the president of the Times and ask him how many votes everybody got. He said he couldn't give me that information. The conversation got heated. Finally I accused him of getting something under the table. We moved 3 times after that. New and improved locations. We even ground our own meat at the last location. We closed in 2014. We never placed in the top 3 again. One year they had McDonalds in the 3rd place. lol

David, a young Bryan and me. What a beautiful smile on Bryan's face.
My daughter Catherine Lynn O'Kelly. 16 years old. After spending 3 years with the medical mafia Cathy looked like the picture of death. The famous Children's memorial hospital under the direction of Dr. Lorain Pockman was about to give her gold salts which I believe would have killed her or if not the next drug they would have given her. I realized that medical people only treat symptoms. They don't remove cause. Hell if they actually cured anybody they would go out of business. In other words they don't know a thing about health. They practice disease care not health care. As a result of my daughters experience with the medical mafia I haven't been to a doctor since 1964, and that was a car accident which is about the only reason that one should consult a doctor for trama and crises. And I am 80 years young, going on 81. In this picture she looks like the picture of health. I sent her to Dr. Hebert Shelton's health school. They fasted Cathy for 14 days and then fed her organic food for another 14 days. When she came back from Texas I called Children's Hospital and asked them to check her out. I didn't tell them where she had been. They checked her out and said the news was good, Cathy had no more disease. Then I made the mistake of thinking I had discovered something that the medical mafia did not know about. So I told Dr. Pockman where she had been and what the treatment was. The good Dr. looked me right in the eyes and said in a stern voice if voodoo works so be it and walked away. They know about fasting and good food. But to confess it would put most of them out of business.
