May 19th 2012 3:05PM Have there been any problems with the wheels being snapped off on escalators, curbs, etc?
Mar 1st 2012 11:20AM Exactly.......we were in Cancun a couple of years ago (last time!) and were driving down the peninsula with another couple. We were pulled over & fined $100.00 for having a passenger in the back seat without his seat belt fastened. There is no way they could have seen that from their police car as we passed on the freeway. And, he did have the belt fastened, but had the top belt behind him so it wouldn't choke his neck. No matter to them, they demanded to see our passports, wouldn't give them back until we collected enough cash to pay the fine. They threatened to take us to the police station & throw us in a cell if we didn't pay.
I would just recommend that visitors to Mexico avoid back-country tours, out of the mainstream tourist areas. It's a shame - we took an excursion in the interior of Mexico in 1993 to view the Monarch butterfly wintering area. Wouldn't even consider this now.
Aug 14th 2011 12:47PM I lost respect for Halle Berry when she won the Oscar and went on & on in her acceptance speech thanking her father for her "heritage". This for an abusive father who deserted her and her (Caucasian)mother when she was very young & had not much to do with her as she was growing up. Not one word about her mother who totally supported and raised her alone.
Apr 2nd 2011 4:13PM There's a weekend drive-in in Barstow CA, also one in Delta CO
Jan 1st 2011 9:59AM Bacon-flavored beer isn't anything new. There is a town in Germany that has been brewing it for centuries. We sampled it on a river trip 3 years ago. Really tasty!!
Dec 22nd 2010 10:42PM Have the people who wrote this article ever looked at the 10 top watched shows? Week after week the list includes: NCIS, NCIS Los Angeles, and Criminal Minds among others. Seems like they should be mentioned somewhere in this list. Or does the viewing public not count???
Dec 3rd 2010 9:10AM Where is the ACLU protesting the 9/11 mosque in New York City? They are requesting government funding, but you don't see much coverage of this in the media.
Everyone - be sure to send a Christmas card with a religious theme to the ACLU headquarters in New York City.
Nov 27th 2010 1:49PM Where exactly is the "tri-state area"? Would be nice if chips from across the US were tested. We like all flavors of Poore Brothers chips.
Nov 27th 2010 11:51AM Wonder how many students really study the feasability of getting a job in their chosen field before they settle on a major? There are job openings in almost all areas of health & medical fields. And they pay fairly well.
Nov 22nd 2010 12:33PM If you don't like the show.........don't watch it!! Seems like a no-brainer. We don't watch any of the shows we think are ridiculous: "Kate plus 8", any of the "Housewives", "DWTS", "American Idol", among many. We really like this show because we spent 3 months in Alaska a couple of years ago, did a lot of the same things, and it brings back good memories.
