A Big Kerfuffle

Well, that caused a bit of a stir, didn’t it?

Here’s some explanation.

First, I didn’t do this.  Lisa did this. It’s Lisa’s business.  She set it up, paid for it, you name it.  I didn’t even help.  Deb did make the logo.

Nicole is, of course, having a shit fit, and whining about how she just doesn’t understand any of this.

Consider a point that Deb made in a comment.

That, for those who don’t get it, is a knock-off of my son’s logo.  My son is dead.  Nicole likes to mock that fact.

Here’s Nathan’s logo so you can see what I mean.

Note: there was a question raised as to who created the logo first. I laughed. I created that logo below in the late fall of 2006. I used a web font called “Big Noodle Titling” which is copyright free.  I also used a piece of clip art (again copyright free) of a hat. I took both into Illustrator (a vector graphics program) and messed with them, a lot.  I pushed the hat to the point that it’s unrecognizable from the original, and roughed up the typefont.  I probably made 25 versions before settling on one.

The idea I had is that the “D” is a wall.  Nathan (the “N”) is sitting with his back to the wall and his knees bent and the hat pulled down over his head.

I showed Nicole’s ridiculous mock of it to Dave without comment.  He knew immediately what she’d done.

Nicole is very aware of this logo.  Al Wilson made us a large metal version of it and she knows this. She reads every word written here.

She does this kind of thing to be hurtful, to mock me, to hurt me.  It doesn’t.  I couldn’t care less.  She’s unoriginal, steals logos, steals names (you don’t think she actually invented “Blessed Little Grooming Company” or “Blessed Little Homestead,” do you?), and unimaginative.

We run a website for our son’s music.  Rest assured, I keep track of the renewal of both the domain name and the hosting service.

But that’s not even the teensy tip of the iceberg.  She costs people money in real life.  Real life damages. Ask Lisa.  Hell, don’t ask her. Go here and see for yourself.

It’s in five parts.  It’s video and a transcript of the bogus IPO claim that Nicole tried to put on Lisa.  You can see Nicole in action in real life.  Consider that the whole episode cost Nicole exactly nothing, but cost Lisa $5000 in lawyer fees.  Imagine how  you’d feel if it were you in Lisa’s seat.

Consider Al.  He’s had a situation ongoing where Nicole has contacted his employer, anyone who will listen to her, trying to have him fired for doing absolutely nothing except flying a helicopter along a prescribed flight path at a prescribed altitude. When she was told by his company that they had records of every move he’s made, that didn’t stop her. She has continued actively to try to have him fired.

And I could go on and on.  Well checks called on Lisa over made-up stuff, with enough facts incorrect that we know for certain Nicole initiated it. More calls to employers. Contacts made to elderly parents.  Taunting any critic who has lost a child. One of my favorites was the time she had a newborn baby gift set sent to a woman who was unsuccessfully trying to get pregnant.

So, yeah, Nicole is a bitch, and utterly deserves this.

But beyond that, there’s this stuff.

Jenifer is obviously new. She doesn’t know what she is talking about.

Nicole has not been “doing business” under the BLGC name “for years.”

Well, technically, maybe.  Two years.  More than one.

See the organization date?  February 6, 2015.

By law, Nicole was supposed to file an annual report once a year. That’s what “annual” means.  That means that the annual report for 2016 was due in February of 2016.

When did she file it, finally?

July 5, 2016.

Wanna know why it was so late?

It was late because she forgot.  She forgot and one of her critics reminded her about it, so she ran and did it.

This year, she forgot again.  Nobody told her.  Hell, I didn’t even know it.  This is not something I stay glued to by any means.  But along about October, I heard about this neglecting to file the annual report and started paying attention.  I wondered, frankly, if she was letting it go because maybe they were going to move or something.

However, it’s quite clear if you look at the state website what happened.

Nicole quit getting mail at the address listed on her account and when they sent her the notice, it was returned as undeliverable.  They tried to contact her three times. Each time it was returned.

Her annual report was due on June 30, 2017.  Read that again. That was six months ago.

A couple of years ago, I failed to get a notice to renew our vehicle insurance. I don’t know if it got lost in the mail, or if we misplaced it, or what happened, but I never saw it.  And I failed to renew our vehicle insurance.

It was terminated, and we got the message that had happened.

Dave went down to the insurance company, red-faced, and paid it and had it reinstated.

But you know what?  We’d been grandfathered in to a much lower deductible, a policy that they no longer write.  We lost that. We had to pay a reinstatement fee, and we lost our low deductible.

Shit happens.  I know that.  Everyone has done it at one time or another.

But this is Nicole’s livelihood. In addition, she is busy writing blogs telling us all how to manage fucking money, yet she doesn’t seem to be able to keep up with something that is very simple and very cheap ($15). She’s been obligated, since starting her business, to file an annual report twice and she’s forgotten to do both times.

In the comments on the other page, somebody used the dead baby as an excuse.  See why that won’t work?  June 30.  That’s when it was due.  The baby was still born on July 21.

We did not get to explain to our insurance company that we never got the renewal notice.  It’s not up to them to keep track of shit. It’s up to us.

Here’s a grand excuse.

Their property, the shitstead, is the address that Nicole used to register her business. I assume that’s because when she did it, she didn’t have a business address yet.

But this is a dubious claim.

For one thing, the shitstead’s mailbox is not at the shitstead.

See the little row of mailboxes on the road there.  That’s right at the intersection of the road the Nauglers live on and the main paved highway. Everyone’s mailbox is right there.  They don’t deliver to houses along that road.

Remember?  The Nauglers live in the wilderness.

When you live in the wilderness, mail delivery is not as convenient as when you live in town.  (By the way, I didn’t know this about their mail. I had to find out today just to write this.  I suspected it because there are no mailboxes along that road, but it took a call to the local post office to be sure.)

And then she accuses a “local” (wonder who?) of stealing their mail.  That’s the first time I’ve ever seen that particular accusation, and I highly doubt it.

At any rate, they quit getting mail at their house.

This is not fault of the state of Kentucky.  Nicole’s responsibility, as a business owner, is to let the state know if her address changes. On that website, they even tell you how to go about doing so.  She didn’t, so when they tried to send her annual report reminders, well, they couldn’t be delivered.

For months, they couldn’t be delivered.

As a result, Nicole’s registration and LLC went kaput.

You’ll notice, though, that nobody pounced on this the day it happened.  This all happened three months or so ago.  Nobody really noticed, frankly.

The name Nicole registered has been available to anyone who wanted it for quite some time now.

Lisa finally took it.  Why shouldn’t she? Nicole has nothing of value beyond a very used garden shed or two.

It’s not “being resolved.”  Lisa owns the name, legally.  Nicole let it lapse.  It was entirely Nicole’s fault.  They don’t forward mail forever.  And nobody “jumped on it.” It has been lapsed now for a long time.

See how she paints a very different picture of what happened? Nothing is her fault. It’s the mean post office that didn’t forward her mail forever. It’s the bad state that didn’t make sure she got the paperwork and hold her hand while she filled it in.  And it’s “being resolved.”

It will be resolved when Nicole changes her business name, since right now, she’s illegal.  For one thing, she is not an LLC registered with the state of Kentucky and hasn’t been for several months.

But that sort of crap, Nicole’s spin, starts the negative reviews on Lisa’s new page.

Lisa left the reviews up on purpose, to let Nicole’s humpers do what she knew they would do, flock over and leave negative reviews.

There’s more, but  you get the idea.

Remember when she threatened to kill Ranger?

When that happened, a few rescue groups found out that this woman was online threatening to kill her dog if somebody didn’t adopt it, and raced to the rescue.  That’s what they do.

When Nicole was, to put it mildly, less than responsive, they got very angry with her, and some of them went over to the business page and left some hilarious, quite obviously fake reviews.  They were absolutely funny.

Nicole was outraged.

She turned that into “the trolls are trying to destroy my business with fake reviews.”

But here are her humpers leaving fake reviews of a business that hasn’t even begun doing business yet.

One other thing.  I did, in fact, call the Kentucky Department of Revenue and speak with a guy there about sole proprietorships.  I asked him specifically about pet grooming.  He told me that if you operate as a sole proprietorship and you sell nothing tangible, you don’t need a tax number and you don’t have to register, but that if, as a sole proprietor, you sell so much as a bottle of shampoo, it’s a whole different story, and that you would need to establish an LLC at that point.

I was a little surprised, frankly, as I’d thought it would be very different.  Lisa was surprised, too.  It appears the law is different now, and yes, they are pushing people to form LLCs.  I’m not sure why.

Frankly, I am more inclined to believe the guy at the Department of Revenue who actually works there than Sonja Lear on Facebook. Or, you can just read Nicole’s blog and learn all about money management from her.

So, no, there is no lie being told. If you think I was told incorrectly, call and ask yourself.

But I suppose we’ll find out, since Nicole is getting all this “resolved.”

Sigh.  No stealing. The name was abandoned.

So what, Nicole?  The only thing that can help your kids is the state. I can’t do a god-damned thing for them, and you sure aren’t.  Want me to say it again?

The only thing that can help your kids is the state of Kentucky.

Just to finish it off, Larisa Baraldi cannot shut up and has to make another threat.  Noted.

  1. Double-posting to chafe Nicole’s ass.

    USPS will forward your mail for up to 12 months for First-Class Mail, Express Mail, and packages. Periodicals and magazines will be forwarded for up to 60 days. Aug 16, 2017

    What happens after your mail forwarding expires with USPS?

    If it has your street address and your forward has run out, it will be returned to sender for the next six months, with your new address on it p, after that it is returned marked unable to forward.

    Details matter.

  2. Not to mention she just recently posted that she had a court date with the county due to a municiple bi-law infraction. A simple court date to submit evidance that she had filed paperwork regarding whatever issue it pertained to. … why she let whatever that was drag out all the way to an appearance is anyone’s guess.

    But it would occur to me a casual observer that a reasonable person would take something like that as a sign that they should double check all there other affairs to ensure they were in order.

    As you said Sally (loose quote) shit happens. But when shit happens again and again.. what is the definition of insanity?

  6. Not feeling sorry for Nicole at all. Despite her protests of innocence in everything that has ever happened to her, Nicole has been in the driver’s seat from day one. And whether she likes it or not her decisions have landed her here: operating under a name licensed elsewhere and operating without a license (LLC). Taking responsibility and being civil with others usually avoids this outcome, Nicole. The law doesn’t care about your feelings or how many Facebook followers you have, dear. I know that having lots of faceless Facebook followers means a lot to you, Nicole, but it’s pretty much worthless to you except to land you in even more difficulty. Stupid woman.

  7. I’m so glad you said the thing about the reviews. Specifically NN said that people were leaving bad reviews that had never done business with her. I’m guessing that only matters when it’s happenibg to her since the entire world revolves around her.
    There is one question i have…do they notify the prior owner of the name when it’s been assigned to a new business?
    I’m feeling sorry for her kids because her screeching must be out of control tonight.

  10. Is mail from the government not forwardable? I know that some mail simply cannot be forward. If they got all their other mail, but this I suspect that is what really happened. I just know that some of the mail I get will say right on it DO NOT FORWARD and RETURN TO SENDER.

  11. She didn’t forget to renew her business license with the state, she refused to follow procedures, she doesn’t believe in licensing or permits. She has the KRS ( Kentucky Revised Statute?) Books memorized. She knows it takes a physical address to renew, she could not use her P.O. Box, she thought she would not get caught. She also does not believe in taxes and is purposely confusing renewal of her LLC and tax id as being one in the same. They are not, they are two separate entities within the state government, the first falls under jurisdiction of The Secretary of State , the second The Department of Revenue.

    Suck it up Nicole, you royally screwed yourself on this one, you have no one to blame but yourself. Your beliefs purposely endanger everything you touch or are involved in, think about that.

    All mail can be forwarded for a period of time (6 months, then you can renew for another 6 months). However, it is the responsibility of the person who has moved, or who wants their mail forwarded, to provide the address to the post office. It’s not the responsibility of USPS to track you down and ask you what you want done with it.

    Ditto for the paperwork the state requires. If Nicole had bothered to go online and check it out, she would have known that her annual report was due, seen that it had been returned as undeliverable, and then she could have filled out the necessary forms to change her business address and file the report. She failed to do so.

    We finally got the salon opened on May 20, 2015. So many things changed in those few weeks. Everything we had planned was flipped upside down. We were just taking it all day by day. The business neighbors had started complaining about the barking, as if we needed more stress. After 6 months of trying to figure out how to resolve the neighbor issue, we came to agreement with the property owner. A new wall was put up and a sound test was done. The sound test passed and I signed the new lease with a rent increase to cover a portion of the wall. Two days later another noise complaint came in, and with it a 30 day notice to vacate. 17 JUL 2016

    I think that location was on E. Lincoln Trail Boulevard.

    For those who are new here, please take note of one phrase in particular, “…as if we needed more stress.” No concern for the other businesses who were already in place, their stress and the effect of the noise on their businesses. Apparently the sound test was insufficient because there was another noise complaint. She didn’t state that the final noise complaint was unwarranted or filed by her enemies or anything. No, simply that it happened and she was given 30 days notice to vacate.

    She also left behind a lighted sign that probably set her back $1000 or so. Nicole is forever doing foolish things like that and this time, it is likely to cost her significantly.

  14. Consider Al. He’s had a situation ongoing where Nicole has contacted his employer, anyone who will listen to her, trying to have him fired for doing absolutely nothing except flying a helicopter along a prescribed flight path at a prescribed altitude. When she was told by his company that they had records of every move he’s made, that didn’t stop her. She has continued actively to try to have him fired.

    Let’s consider Al. What Nicole wants his employer to do is to forbid Al and by extension, every other pilot employed by that company, from flying over her property. Regardless of whether or not it is the shortest, safest, most direct path. Now, for those who do not know, the reason Al and those other pilots are hired to fly is because they are transporting critically injured people. So Nicole wants to dictate where a life-flight may fly because it might disrupt her life.

    They’re commonly called life-flights where I live. Perhaps they’re referred to differently in different areas. Hell yes they’re tracked on GPS. It’s not an inexpensive matter to get one of those birds and too often it means someone is at high risk of death or serious long-term life-altering issues.

    But it’s all about Nicole and her animosity.

  15. How do you do a sound test on walls between businesses? What in the name of samscratch would be going on in a strip mall business that would need a sound test? I could see something like a Chuck E. Cheese or something but a grooming salon? Was the issue really barking dogs (that’s a lot of agitated dogs going at it nonstop) or yelling kids? Sorry, Nicole I’m not buying it. By the way, I thought Nicole said they chose to move the salon from its previous location. Most people speculated that Nicole had gotten evicted but this is the first I’ve seen where she said she got an eviction notice.

    Their whole online life is a lie (I try to excel at understatement).

  16. You are more than welcome to call the Kentucky Revenue Cabinet in Hopkinsville that can help you with sales tax information. They just held a seminar on December 13th discussing sales tax numbers and filing sales tax returns. They are super helpful and will clarify what you have been misled to believe. The number 270-889-6521. You do NOT have to form a LLC as a sole proprietor in Kentucky to get a sales tax number. Sole proprietors CAN get a sales tax number and NOT form a LLC if they sell product. Frankfort hires a lot of seasonal workers and that may be why you were misinformed about having to form a LLC to get a sales tax number. Now, if you file a LLC and you SALE products, then you have to get a sales tax number. Kentucky will not issue the LLC if you haven’t applied for the sales tax number. If you form a LLC and only provide a service, then you are NOT required to get a sales tax number. You don’t have to believe me but you were misinformed and if you would like clarification, I included the contact information above.

  17. This is what happens when you think you can measure up to someone way smarter than you. Nicole could have slunk back to her shed and let it rest after the court proceedings SHE initiated backfired on her. It would have been the wise thing to do. But she couldn’t let it go, she had to poke and poke and poke!
    You know, that whole reaping what you sowed and all.

    She’s big bad. They did remove the sign, but didn’t bother to put it up at the new location. It’s very usefully sitting in their large entry area where it is doing them a fat lot of good. I stand by my stated belief that that was foolish.

    Alas, I could barely pay attention, her tits were hanging sooo low. One would think they would’ve fallen completely off by now. Oh, wait – that’s what it was – she is tired of being torn down on social-media. She is tired of the fake news. So I guess she wants it to be a one-way street, where she can speak her message, make false claims, with nary a question or criticism. Who does she think she is?!

    I’m pleased to see it. I also noticed she very conveniently skipped over the part where I copied and pasted the information from the USPS web site on forwarding mail.

    I also meant to write “big mad”. She’s going to take out a loan and hire a “big bad ass lawyer” to reclaim the business name that she let lapse.

    I don’t know how much “big bad ass lawyers” there cost per hour, but the one I hired 15 years ago was $450/hour. Then again, he had a history of winning cases and had even won three in front of the Supreme Court of the United States. That is never a guarantee that a lawyer will take and win your case of course, but it almost made the opposing lawyer shit his pants! How do I know this? The person named in the lawsuit later told me so. Yes, I won.

    Hey, Nicole – why don’t you get your shiftless husband to set that sign up INSIDE your shop window and light it up? Or is it beyond his limited capabilities?

  28. What Another Resident said up there in comments. Totally relevant. Especially this:

    “Suck it up Nicole, you royally screwed yourself on this one, you have no one to blame but yourself. Your beliefs purposely endanger everything you touch or are involved in, think about that.”

    It is worthy of repeating. Nicole is her own worst enemy.

  29. You can’t trademark a descriptive word, phrase or term, such as Blessed Little Grooming Company. The company’s name requires more than a simple descriptive term it requires a a distinctive character, a uniqueness, such as a logo to get protection. Thus TradeMARK. There are exceptions to this for famous names, but none apply here.

    Two businesses can have the same name, think of Delta Airlines and Delta Faucets. What they cannot do if they have the same name is be the same type of business in the same geographical area. Who used the name first is a moot point if the two elements required are not valid. The point is to avoid confusion among the public from competing businesses in the same geographical area. The standard of determination regarding any potential “confusion” is that of a reasonable man not a bat shit crazy harpy. The law is very specific. Words such as “and” have significant meaning and effect.

    Education. It’s worth it.
