Feb 7th 2013 7:19AM Okay, Christian, listen up. If I'm gonna fork over a hundred mil for a house I'm gonna be moving in pronto, get it? You can't be part of the package. So you wanna stay there, fine; send your lawyers to see my lawyers after you're dead and we'll talk turkey. Adios amigo!
Mar 3rd 2012 6:56AM Hey JOE MORGAN, are you in the position of having to take care of an elderly parent? You say that "you keep them in their own house safe and happy." Easier said that done, pal. I still work a full time job. My 92 year old mother is a bedridden invalid. She wears diapers 24 hours a day, can't walk, has to be lifted onto a portable commode and spends her time in a hospital bed set up in the living room of her house watching television. She's still in her own home and still has financial assets that pay for 24/7 home health care aids at a cost of FOUR THOUSAND DOLLARS PER WEEK. If she is still living when the money runs out there will be no alternative but to apply for Medicaid and have her put into a nursing home, which is really where she should be now since she requires that level of care and barely knows where she is anyway. I have neither the time nor the training to care for people in her condition and I am not giving up my career to do so. It's easy to criticize others until you've walked in their footsteps and I know you haven't walked in my footsteps or you wouldn't be so adamant about what other people should be doing for their elderly parents.
Mar 3rd 2012 2:28AM What none of the other readers who are posting here seem to grasp is that a 98 year old person is seldom able to live independently any longer and they are usually incapable of making sound decisions about their own welfare. In most cases a family member must assume the role of guardian and handle their finances and see to their needs. If the brother who lives with her is an alcoholic whose "drinking is out of control," as stated by that brother's own son, she might be better off in a nursing home than living with him and it may well be that as long as she is there he can't be removed. I sense that this story is not as simple as it appears.
Dec 19th 2011 8:45PM Sofia Viagra, another "star" I've never heard of before, but with a name like that I'm sure she's popular at the geezer film festivals.

Nov 1st 2011 3:08AM He's now 48 years old? I'm surprised at that. He still looks like he's late twenties / early thirities. Great actor. Never gave a bad performance yet. He's knows how to pick hot girlfriends too. Way to go, Johnny!
Oct 26th 2011 3:49AM Amen to all that, Shirley. I'm only a youngster of sixty-three but I hear you loud and clear.
Sep 23rd 2011 11:24AM Brings to mind something once said by a guest after his first breathtaking visit to John D. Rockefeller's estate: "It's what God would have done if He'd had the money."
Jul 10th 2011 5:22AM Those poor kids, shuttling by Rolls-Royce between Mommy's ten million dollar home and daddy's twenty million dollar home a few blocks away. How will they ever survive the trauma of all this? and with nothing but a hundred million dollar inheritance to fall back on when they grow up. It's a real Darwinian struggle for the ages. Let's just hope that with enough therapy they can survive all this.
Jun 17th 2011 6:42AM Ah, we all have our favorite center fold. For me it was Heather Ryan from July 1967. She was 20 years old and drop dead gorgeous. I think she moved back to Tennessee or Kentucky and became a wildlife biologist. Lucky animals!
