Nov 23rd 2011 11:50PM What I'd like to know is how we even HAVE any flights in the continental U.S. that fly non-stop for 7 hours? I know it's a long way from Anchorage to Philadelphia, but didn't they do away with those long-haul flights after 9/11/2001?
About a year ago I was planning a trip from Memphis to Carlsbad, booking online, and some airlines wanted me to fly FIRST to Minneapolis, then down to DFW and from there to New Mexico. Or go first to Atlanta, have a 3-hour layover, and then to DFW. Totally crazy and expensive! What I wound up doing was flying from Memphis to El Paso, renting a car and driving back over to Carlsbad.
Jun 4th 2011 2:20PM You rock, Ms. Corcoran. I'd never heard of you before coz I rarely watch daytime TV and don't live in NYC, but I admire your resourcefulness, tenacity and talent. Agree 100% that it's a huge motivator when someone declares you'll never make it.
By the way, I've reported all the spammers who think they hid their spam links by making brief comments on this article.
Feb 18th 2011 8:19PM I agree, it seems ridiculous to say "Working Mother" in this day and age AND economic times.
Gotta wonder, who funded this study at the U of North Carolina ECONOMICS dept? I'd tend to believe it if a psychology dept or medical school did such a study, but this REEKS of some elitist group saying, "Here's $$$ so you can go find data that says what we want it to." Article said they took "20 years of data" from federal National Health Interview Survey. Never heard of that in my life, and wonder who's behind it?
I went thru all the formats when my children were small -- full time job outside the home, stay home mom for 2 years, and then part time job outside home. NEVER had a kid spend an overnight stay in hospital until our older child was in junior high.
Feb 12th 2011 12:13AM I've not seen the show yet, but I think he's gotta be an improvement over old Larry. Re: his opinion of the former governor of Alaska as "mesmeric," I think he might have meant she's fascinating in the way that you can't turn away from a train wreck. Mesmeric, sort of hypnotizing, putting you under a spell, then you shake yourself and go "Oh, I'm not really in a lovely castle; this is a crumbling facade with spiderwebs!"
I must agree with his description of her as "hardworking." Yes, it's hardworking when you resign from your elected post to serve the people of your state and instantly go to work for yourself, writing a book, making paid speeches, getting on TV and continually hinting at a possible run for the Presidency.
Jan 9th 2011 2:49PM What kind of nimnul takes her snake out in JANUARY??? They are COLD BLOODED creatures. I hope it didn't fall from her neck as she stepped aboard the subway and get lost amongst the tracks, or God forbid, get fried by the third rail or run over. Maybe they'll find it, but I doubt it.
Dec 10th 2010 1:53AM I'm so glad that Scrub is finally home. Yes, may God bless the kind woman who was feeding him as an outside cat.
Microchipping or keeping a collar on your cat/dog with *at least* the vet's rabies shot tag on it is the way to go, folks. Last February I found a Siamese tomcat, pitifully starved and footsore, with a couple of gashes on his back and tail. NO collar, no chip, nada. He was so emaciated that I thought he was a half-grown kitten, seriously. This is in northeast Arkansas, if anybody knows of someone in the area who lost a cat a year or so ago. My vet said he'd been neutered, so someone cared about him at some point, and he was maybe 2 years old.
"Siam" as I call him, has classic fawn coat with black face, ears, feet and tail. Blue eyes, slightly crossed. Also he has an unusual way of greeting -- he stretches forward and extends one paw in the air, as if he wants to shake hands. He's very loving despite a few pesty ways LOL Altho' I'd hate to give him up, sometimes I feel sad for the person who lost him, who may still be wondering if he got killed or starved to death.
Nov 24th 2010 1:15PM What an amazing story. I'm one who reads long articles online and elsewhere, but your story definitely grabbed my attention. It is indeed a miracle that you're not dead or paralyzed in a wheelchair. Your description of the pain in your arms and hands, plus the way you were immobilized for surgery, was excruciating.
I do believe that God has a plan for each of us, that it was not your time to die, and that He was with you in your suffering. I hope you'll choose to know Him better.
Nov 18th 2010 3:28PM She definitely has a case. It's sickening to think that someone professional and competent had to hear such junior-high level comments, and when she filed a complaint, was terminated. I'm not well endowed myself but have had friends who were, and I think they should strike a blow to workplaces that tolerate this sort of sexual harassment.
Nov 10th 2010 1:47PM Man, that clip made me laugh! I've actually not seen "Anchorman" since I don't get out to the cinema much. However, now I think I'll rent it. In my opinion, Steve Carell is a very funny man and a good actor. The way he turned red during that audition made it really priceless.
Opinions are like a$$holes, as they say, everybody's got one altho' I'd go further and say some of you mouthy creeps ARE one. Agree 100% that if you think you could do better, GO and DO ya nimnuls.
Oct 29th 2010 2:07AM NO WAY was that a 7 foot gator. If it was 5 feet from snout to tip of its tail, I'd be surprised. I do agree, once they start coming into people's yards, you can't let them live. A pet or small child would become his breakfast one day, and there's no getting them back. You don't take chances.
