Oct 25th 2011 4:36PM Hey Jer:
As to your statement about "personal experiences etc" and :/Do Tell;" I don't think Vicki meant it quite that way. Also, I'm wondering if Vicki's brothers were actually incarcerated there or were employed with the prison system. I would hardly think that someone would make a general announcement about having relatives who "spend time" in any kind of a prison, but then again, I could be wrong.
Dec 25th 2010 11:57AM Having just taken pictures for a local CIVIC GROUP which was putting on Christmas parties for the members' children and also for the homeless and otherwise need families in the area of Goodyear and Avondale Arizona, I was utterly amazed at the number of children who actually feared Santa. Not only did I find it NOT FUNNY, but I found it downright sad. It's understandable that children under a year or so of age, who are still in complete bonding with perhaps their parents, grandparents and siblings might be afraid, but the kids that ranged from 5 to probably13 or 14 who refused to sit on Santa's lap was a sign of something being very wrong. Has Santa's reputation gotten that bad in this country?
Maybe, going forward, parities such as these should be giving young men and ladies, perhaps in the age range of 11 to14 and opportunity to portray Santa's Elves and then maybe the youngsters and the not so young "youngsters" would feel more comfortable in dealing with people of their own age range.
Just a suggestion, because I agree, that NO CHILDREN from babies to almost TEENAGERS should be forced to sit on a grown man's lap if the feeling is that it is not a good idea, yet the FAME and History of SANTA CLAUS and his Wife and the helper elves should not disappear either.
Does anyone have any suggestions going forward?
Nov 24th 2010 9:22AM Good thinking Mike, but I was wondering, sort of the same thing but in different words. Could that ad have meant; or prior to hiring someone could a retraction and correction be completed and the correction stating that the veribiage was not clear, so therefore, a clarification to state that what we are looking for in a person, is one who is YOUNG AT HEART BUT MATURE in mind. Age is not a barrier as long as you qualify to produce the needs of this company or something to that effect.
I doubt that the person can be sued if they've not hired anyone yet, or if they've not rejected anyone who might be considered old. But then again, as someone said, the shyster lawyers can make anything suitworthy with some twisting and turning of word usage.
Nov 14th 2010 8:31PM Give me a Margarito so I can SLAM IT DOWN MY THROAT like Manny PAC just did.
I think that from the little bit that I know about him, HE WILL GO DOWN IN HISTORY as being one of the GREATEST FIGHTERS of ALL TIME.
Jul 9th 2010 1:24PM Not to be critical, but I do have to mention that I got a laugh out of the individual who criticized the spelling errors of the author that he was complaining about and then he wrote a sentence which, due to a spelling error made little or no sense. Or is he going to blame that one on AOL now?

Report abuseIt appears that writers like Mr. Ward not only make spelling and grammatical mistakes that no one ever seems to catch, which says a lot for whoever edits these articles at AOL, but they are
just plain STUPID. I know geography education in American high schools has gone done hill over the years since I attended, but really does this guy not know the difference between New Mexico, the State in the USA, from Mexico, the the country and source of millions of illegal aliens?
Notice where I put the break in the sentences and see where he wrote "American high schools has gond DONE hill over the years"
Otherwise, I think it was a respectable post.
Nov 7th 2009 4:45PM You don't have to go to Australia to see a REAL bottle house. There is one in Rhyolite, Nevada and although I don't remember the name of the town that it adjoins, it is not far from Death Valley. Map Quest would probably direct you there. It's sort of in an old Ghost Like Town.

Oct 26th 2009 10:52PM A rather informal way of saying Good Bye; Ta Ta is frequently used by the British.
I think that could be construed, not as being rude or funny; but rather to mean, Hey; I'm a Fighter with this dreaded disease and I'm not going anywhere. So save the Good Bye's. And my experience with known cancer victims has been more good than bad. Several of them are still around and many years have gone by so they would have been very correct is saying Save the Ta Ta's.
Oct 8th 2009 8:25PM NOW THAT WAS A VERY RESPONSIBLE AND RESPECTABLE BUNCH RESPONDING TO THE FIRST POSTER'S REQUEST FOR DECENT POSTS WITHOUT THE POTTY MOUTHS THAT OFTEN SHOW UP WITH CRITICISM.
NOW IF ONLY YOU COULD GET RID OF THE ADS THAT PEOPLE RUN, WHICH HAVE ABSOLUTELY OTHING TO DO WITH THE SUBJECT AT HAND, IT WOULD BE WONDERFUL.
GOD BLESS ALL OF OUR SERVICE MEN AND WOMEN. LET'S HOPE AND PRAY THAT ALL WILL COMPLETE THEIR TERMS OF DUTY AND COME BACK HOME AND BE ABLE TO ENJOY THEIR FAMILY LIFE ONCE AGAIN.
Aug 27th 2009 2:20PM Certainly is a better deal than the one where the woman was poisoning her husband and hoped that she'd become a widow after conducting the perfect crime.
Her husband, going through the present humiliation in order to show his love for her should teach him a GOOD LESSON and should give her some reassurance of his love for her. I'm sure that a lot of men would tell her where to get off if other wives tried this one on them, but then it would justify the wife's going to the courts and filing for the big D.
Jul 7th 2009 12:51PM Poor li'l Nickie Boo Boo. She's probably going to be the prettiest gal in the prison. I'm sure she's going to have a tough time trying not to be someone's "HO".
