Jul 19th 2013 5:50PM I am so so sorry for the citizens of Detroit. If it wasn't for bad luck they'd have no luck at all as the old saying goes. It seems these days the people who are supposed to be in charge of finances in cities and even whole state have their hand in the till. It's truly sickening to read of the underhandedness of these no-goods - them not even caring about anyone but themselves. I think punishment by hard labor when someone is jailed, like this man who money laundered, etc. - bring back some old rock piles somewhere - surely there's some old concrete roads somewhere to be broken up with the pick axes. Just jailing these crooks and saying they need to pay back millions isn't enough - does anyone actually check to see that ill gotten gains are actually paid back?
Apr 2nd 2013 10:14AM I will never forget the time John Lennon's first wife Cynthia and her mother came into her's and John's house after filing for divorce and they even pulled out the nails on the wall to wall carpet and took all that. She was making sure John and Oko got nothing that she had helped create it seems. Even though my first hubby and I divorced I would never take totally everything that wasn't or was nailed down because of bitterness. I was wronged in my marriage but still life goes on and you make the best of everything because if there has been unhappiness on either person's part it's best to not try to get revenge in a mean way. I do not blame this gentleman for the sign. By the way - the word used by Robin in his referral - row - is also pronounced just like (now) here in the United States, too.
Aug 2nd 2012 6:55PM Thankfully, it was only the sports equipment blocking the drain because any drain that has no grating over it is too often a death trap. Near our University of Kentucky there is a drainage ditch which a few years ago overflowed all the way out to the a main busy four lane street. The water was so deep that a police officer was across on the sidewalk facing it warning motorists to turn back. Two young women coming home from night time shopping got out of their taxi nearby, took off their shoes and started wading across to the other sidewalk. One stepped into the drainage ditch that could not be seen because it was overflowing and the swirling water dragged her down. Her friend tried to grab her and was pulled in also. The women's bodies were found about 8 blocks away at the end of the drainage ditch. If there had been a grating they might have been saved. I blame the University for its lack of safety on our large campus. Since then there has been a railing put up around it that is at least 5 feet high. If anyone complains about a grating collecting stuff then that proves the area should be inspected regularly.
Jul 27th 2012 12:58PM It's getting totally ridiculous with all of the "freedom of speech" fans trying to cover anything and everything whether it makes sense or not and when it's inflammatory that is the worst kind. For this man to take it upon himself to do this it shows that he wants everyone to go along with his opinion. I do not like anyone trying to push something into my face with their freedom of speech preaching. Freedom of speech has gotten to be a joke in this day and time and usually has no true relation to the original right to freedom of speech. Good for the police department. If this man is an artist then he needs to go back to art school. Ick.
Nov 9th 2011 6:12PM I cannot believe any sensible person would prefer granite countertops to a sprinkler system. It's totally ridiculous to see people on the home shows carry on over wanting granite countertops as if they are a mark of prestige. Personally, I wouldn't want to be bothered with taking care of them. The simpler the better as long as my counter tops are nice looking and of good quality. If a builder will give me sprinklers in my home plan I will take it. You probably would get a break on your insurance costs by having sprinklers.
Sep 27th 2011 6:46PM Why are some people thinking that flying a Confederate flag is even necessary? What nuts they are. The flag means nothing except to purposely antagonize or upset certain people. The flag was a symbol of the rebels who lost the war so that should have been reason enough to not even fly the flag. We can see that people who want to keep the flag in sight are purposely antagonising others - the others are the sensible normal people who see no need to fly it. We have the beautiful American flag and that's the flag of our free country. I feel sorry for people who fly the flag because they apparently have nothing of importance in their lives so this is an outlet for them. Poor babies. I am glad they are not my bad neighbors. This is yet another example of showing their low class.
Aug 8th 2011 4:04PM It's such a shame for buildings that still look to be salvageable to be destined for decay. Whenever I hear of a very rare instance of someone buying an old church and turning it into their home I do feel so happy and proud of them. Without knowing the reasons for all of these abandoned ones it's hard to say what should have or could have been done to save them. When congregations thin out there's not always enough money to keep a building safe and in good condition. Also, just one example, out of many, of a church being abandoned here is when the younger congregation decided they wanted a modern looking church - no pipe organ - the stained glass windows looked too reverent with their lovely images and the altar was too small for their 15 piece band. The lovely old church is practically held together by scaffolding used to keep it from losing it's exterior and - would you believe - the only time someone wants to use the church is for weddings because of the gorgeous carpet (and the stained glass windows) and the lovely old pews. So sad.
Jul 5th 2011 9:15AM It seems that Sarah is keeping on carrying on her pity party altho she "acknowledges" that she was wrong in some things. Really? When you bad mouth your husband's family and English royalty then you are setting the stage for criticism. I agree that Sarah was certainly old enough to know what at least some decorum is expected when marrying into the British royalty. She didn't want to have to fit into a mold so she did her own thing. I have no sympathy for her whatsoever. Hopefully, she will stop trying to get admiration from everyone all over the world in telling her story and giving her apology. I wish her a good life but I still don't admire her because of all of her whining. If she gets enough publicity she can write a book and get on a few more TV shows.
Jun 30th 2011 7:54AM What a great improvement here. More color was definitely needed, especially with her dark hair. For everyday she could use the eye makeup more sparingly and her eyes would stand out so much. I agree that a new hair style would be good - maybe she has naturally curly hair so that would be taken into account. But - please - no boring Vanna White straight hair. Ick.
Jun 15th 2011 12:52PM This woman said "she didn't always know that Arnold was the boy's father until he started resembling him" - it sure does sound like she was fooling around with someone else at the same time. Both she and Arnold are good for nothings in my book and a child is always the one who has to face having parents like this which they can't help having. The boy thinks it's cool that Arnold is his father - why not? He and his mother have been living good all this time so that's impressive big time I'm sure. Of course, only Maria can decide how much she cares about her husband and wants a future with him. Personally, I couldn't put up with it myself. I wish her all the best.
