Apr 29th 2011 8:37AM Personally, I find it rather refreshing watching people be HAPPY for a few hours. Sure, it's fairy-tale romance and I'm not much of an Anglophile, but at least it's upbeat and cheerful! The newscasts these days are dreadfully depressing and TV programming, for the most part, is garbage.
Don't worry, guys. The worldwide tragedies are still taking place. The networks will return to their regularly-scheduled doom and gloom in a few hours.
Sep 28th 2010 2:12PM I have had the pleasure of knowing Don for 24 years now and he is every bit as wonderful off-camera as he is on. I too am a survivor and it is a shame that it takes something like this to bring child abuse back into the forefront. Thank you, Don, for speaking out and if you are ready to champion the cause, I'm chomping at the bit.
Jul 19th 2010 12:53AM Parks, camps, picnics, museums, carnivals, staring at the clouds... Those are all great ideas if you can afford to hire a maid, a chef, a gardener, and any other staff members necessary to keep your house in order. I am a stay-at-home Mom of 2 boys - ages 7 and 3 - and there's not much time for stargazing, nor much room in the budget for a slate of entertainment. My kids are sometimes told to go FIND something to do...and they do. That's the way most people I know were raised and we are no worse for the wear from it. Oh, did I mention it's 97 degrees in the shade down here in the summer?
Feb 27th 2010 2:20PM It was a very misleading headline and I'm not sure what the purpose was. I spent several years and thousands of dollars getting a liberal arts degree back in the 80s when the philosophy was "an employer is looking for someone with a well-rounded background." Now 42, unemployed, and in default on my student loans which are increasing exponentially due to ridiculous amounts of interest/fees/penalties - another topic for another blog - I feel like it was all a big waste! I have yet to have a job where I needed my degree...restaurant, bar, retail management. I worked my way up from the bottom too. Sadly to say, I will not push college on my kids unless they are going into something specific, such as engineering, architecture, accounting, or dare I say at this point...medicine?
