The Husband

Sharon Clark will never forget the day she met Giovanni Vigliotto. She was working in Indiana, as the manager of a large flea market. Early one morning, he walked into her office. "I'd like to rent some space at the flea market, " he said. "I have a lot of used things to sell -- furniture, pots and pans, dishes, lamps, clothes. Do you have any space?"

"Yes, I do, " she answered.

When the flea market closed at the end of the day, Giovanni invited Sharon to have dinner with him. She was 43 years old, divorced, and a little lonely. She said yes.
For the next four months, Sharon saw Giovanni often. He was not a handsome man--he was short and heavy, and he had a big nose. But he was intelligent, polite, and kind.

She fell in love with him. "Marry me," Giovanni said.

Sharon thought it over. Her mind told her, "Don't do it. You don't know him well enough." But her heart told her ,"Do it. Take a chance." Sharon listened to her heart and married Giovanni.

After they got married, Giovanni said he wanted to move to Canada. "I have a beautiful house there," he said. "Lets sell your house and move to Canada." Sharon sold her house and made a profit of $55,000. She wanted to take her furniture to Canada, so she and Giovanni rented a truck. "I'll drive the truck, and you can drive your car," he said. "You'd better give me the $55,000. It's dangerous for a woman to travel with that much money."

"You're right," Sharon agreed, and she gave Giovanni the $55,000.

On the way from Indiana to Canada, Giovanni told Sharon he had to stop in Ohio on business. "You go on ahead," he told her. They decided to meet at a hotel in Canada.
Giovanni never arrived at the hotel. Sharon waited a few days at the hotel. Then she realized: Giovanni wasn't coming to Canada. He was gone and so were her furniture and her money.

Sharon was angry. She wanted her money and her furniture back. She wanted to fin Giovanni. Where was he? "I met him at a flea market," she thought. "Maybe that's where he is now--at a flea market somewhere."

For months Sharon went to flea markets all over the United States. At a flea market in Florida, she found Giovanni. He was selling used furniture. Some of it was hers. Sharon called the police.

When the police arrested Giovanni, Sharon's story was in newspapers and on TV. A woman in New Jersey called the police. "Giovanni is my husband, too!" she said. "I met him at a flea market. We got married a few months later. He said he wanted to move to Florida because he had a beautiful house there. I sold my house and gave him the money. We put all my things in a truck. Giovanni drove away in the truck, and I never saw him again. " Then another woman called the police, and another, and another. "Giovanni is my husband!" the women said. All the women told similar stories: They met Giovanni at a flea market; they sold their houses; he took their furniture and their money. Altogether, 105 women were married to Giovanni.

A judge sentenced Giovanni to 34 years in prison. "I want you to stay in prison for a long time, " the judge told Giovanni. "I want to be sure there will be no wife number 106."

On February 8th,1983, this big time fraudster and bigamist called Giovanni Vigliotto was convicted and sentenced to life-time imprisonment. We discussed about this guy today in class and I acted as this guy. Lol, that was fun. But, whatever, the moral of the story is: Use your mind sometimes, Girls!!!

Do you have a Blogger(blogspot) Blog and do you know Google is deleting blogger blogs??

As usual, I was checking backlink tool to find some of the friends link (who has linked backed to me before) if they still have my link backlinked to me or not. Well, some of them didn't link back to me. I checked their site and the message I got upon visiting their blogspot(blogger) blog was something like "this blog has been deleted." As I was visiting some of the other blogspot blog, I found few of them got deleted too. I thought, may be they got over blogging. Recently more and more blogspot(blogger) blogs are unavailable or being deleted. Now, these things forced me to think why those blogs are being deleted. I usually check official google blog for any kind of stuff they are upto. Their blog was shut down too(it's some days before), they are online now though. But, it's quite eerie because this very blog of mine is hosted on blogger's server too. I don't know what happened to their official blog but it's confirmed news they are deleting blogs. M
