Jun 26th 2013 3:01PM We always had a birdfeeder out on the patio, visible from the family room and the kitchen dining area. Watching the birds was so relaxing (and amusing)for my disabled uncle and the rest of the family too. The neighbors need to find some other "problem" worthy of their complaints....
Jun 23rd 2013 8:37PM This case is very similar to the 2012 case of 98-year-old Mary Kantorowski whose son, Peter Kantorowski, did the very same thing. He had the house transfered into a trust in his name and then served his mom with an eviction notice on her 98th birthday Dec. 13, 2011. Then in February of 2012, he tried to sell the house but was stopped by Probate Court. The house (after Mary's death) was supposed to be split 50-50 between Peter, and his brother John (who was actually looking after his mom). Seems that ol' Petey boy and his wife wanted it all.
May 1st 2011 6:36PM I thought the same thing when I first saw the photos. Also, in the photo of William and Catherine, I thought that the photographer (or an assistant) should have straightened out the small crinkle in Catherine's dress above her right foot. Small details, but these are professional posed photos.
Apr 20th 2011 4:39PM I absolutely loved "They Shoot Horses, Don't They?". It's true that he didn't have many lines in that movie but, he didn't need to say a thing. Just his presence, body language, and facial expressions said everything, what an incredible actor! R.I.P. Mr. Sarrazin.
Apr 7th 2011 6:27PM Fanetiks, While I totally agree with you regarding overpopulation, I totally DISAGREE with your comment that states "with exceptions only for people of extraordinary intellectual gifts." There are many intellectuals out there who have no creative abilities, who have no mechanical abilities, who have no common sense whatsoever, and who have no morals and/or ethics......sometimes the smartest people can be the nastiest too. It takes all kinds of people with different areas of intelligence and abilities to create a society. My concern is overpopulation....NOT who should be able to have children.
Apr 7th 2011 5:28PM Fanetiks, I totally agree with you! In my first year of college (1969), the first thing my sociology instructor asked us was "How many children do you want to have?". Most students answered four or five children. He then had us read Paul Erlich's book "The Population Bomb" which was a real mind opener. Zero population growth does not mean that we cannot have any children, as some people mistakenly believe. It means limiting the number of children we have to two.
From the beginning of time to about the year:
1804, the population grew to 1 billion people...123 years later, to:
1927, the population grew to 2 billion people.....33 years later, to:
1960, the population grew to 3 billion people.....14 years later, to:
1974, the population grew to 4 billion people.....13 years later, to:
1987, the population grew to 5 billion people.....12 years later, to:
1999, the population grew to 6 billion people.....11 years later, to:
2010, the population grew to 6.8 billion people...and growing.......
Some people argue that all the world's population would fit into a space the size of Texas....the problem with that argument is that not all of the world's space is inhabitable. Plus (and this is the greatest problem), although the world has a lot of space, IT DOES NOT HAVE AN INFINITE AMOUNT OF NATURAL RESOURCES TO SUSTAIN THIS GROWING POPULATION.

Mar 23rd 2011 5:20PM I agree 100% with you. Besides, how long can people keep up a false facade without showing their "real" selves??? If folks can't accept me, wrinkles and all, then poopie on them!
Mar 23rd 2011 5:11PM I actually prefer the "before" pictures. All the wrinkles and flaws are part of what makes us human, and beautifully so. The cartoon "after" pictures are downright scary, especially those teeth!!!!!
Dec 31st 2010 5:06PM skullcursherst.......Please lighten up. Even during the Great Depression, people enjoyed comedy movies, think Laurel and Hardy. This silly article and the humorous comments are actually a bit of a relief from the seriousness of what is really going on in the world. Believe me, I do know what is going on in this country and the world. This is just a pause from that reality.
