    I'm frankly surprised to see this comment from someone old enough to be a grandma. It's not "fixing" girls as though they're broken. Where on earth did you get that from? It's about providing more...

    The Feds didn't come for drugs. The raid was entirely about environmental issues: allegedly dumping of syrup into waterways. IOW, EPA violations exclusively, nothing to do with drugs. When they...

    When I had Morgans, my trainer had a coffee mug that he found in a truck stop gift shop. It read, "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but whips and chains excite me."

    I've been looking for that...

    I have a similar attic and in this extremely bitter weather have been hearing creaks & thumps that I have not heard before. This time I believe it is weather related.

    Several years ago I had the...

    Nope, not at all. It is an excellent idea to entertain people like the one in the letter (I can only eat steak; well, not that steak) at functions that don't involve food. She's not saying cut her...

    Miss Manners gets it. And in the (I hope, rare) cases where the guest is too picky, Miss Manners offers a polite way out of future invitations.

    This guy is admittedly merely picky, so yes, he is being childish.

    And even if he had a sensory issue, feast on the toast and bagels. You don't call up and say no this, no that, no other thing so...

    Exactly. I agree with this. Gracious host, yes, but be a gracious guest as well. Go enjoy the brunch and leave the bf at home if he has no manners and can't learn how to behave as a guest. Who hasn't...

    Seriously? A month's notice is the decent thing to do. It does take time to find a suitable place and often you find one that isn't available at that very moment. Geez, I'd give a boarder a month to...

    Yes, she was. She was on here today saying that they talked and were going to talk again tonight.

    I agree 100% with Midge:

    Ok, that's really, really naive. There is no doubt in my mind Bruce wants the publicity. Publicity = money. Oh, I'm sure he'll *say* the purpose is all altruistic, but have you ever seen their show?...

    No guessing about it. It IS Twilight fanfic. Originally called Master of the Universe



    Not surprising at all. Although occasional fanfiction can be alright, most of it usually is garbage.

    Doubt what? That press agents tip off photographers that their clients are going to be shopping, clubbing, running, etc.? That's the way it works. Clients can order PR not to do that, but esp. when...

    Not the fact that he wants to be a she is a stunt, I suppose that's what he wants to do. But the build-up, the press, the interviews, of course he's building publicity for his tv show. You'd have to...

    I don't see any problem with people sticking to the legal definition of he & she. If I'm biologically female and decide I feel I'm really male, I am legally female unless and until I legally...

    They say that now. I think it was found that "reality show" wasn't, er, nice enough or serious enough or something. The initial reports came from places like People and Hollywood Life and The Star &...

    Are you kidding? For you and me, but not for him/her. He's going to do a tv show about it, so he WANTS all the publicity he can get. It's his income. If he didn't want the money & publicity, he...

    Frankly, that's nonsense. Those of us old enough to have bought plenty of houses before this fiat about personal photos never had a problem picturing ourselves in a house. In fact, often those homey...

    Nah, do your own thing, you and your husband. But be prepared for more visits once the kids come, that's only natural, and I think it'd be nice for your kids to grow up close with their cousins, but...

    Beautiful photos! Best wishes to you and congratulations to your lucky husband!

    I especially love the photo where you have your head on his shoulder. Breathtaking.

    Also I'm guessing that because the sister has the grandkids, wouldn't that be natural that grandparents would spend more time there because of the kids, esp. if the kids are little? Just asking,...

    That play-by-play seems weird to me. Of course if SIL and her parents like it, that's their business, let them enjoy it, but to me it was rude to your husband and you and took away from the pleasures...

    I know a secondhand story of such a situation that went south. Exactly the same: friend needed a place and was taken in. The "work" about the farm was desultory and eventually stopped altogether....
