Oct 10th 2011 10:18PM Thank you for the beautiful pix. Yes, Hungary is a gorgeous place to visit. I am Hungarian, 100% (although born in Australia) and my family lived on the Pest side of Budapest. The first time I visited in 1972, they were just unearthing the palace of King Matthias on the Buda side - quite fascinating and beautiful the parts of the palance that were being found at that time. If you get a chance, you must go!
Oct 5th 2011 7:28PM So, now, I'm wondering when something will be done about Hart Island.
Do New Yorkers even know about this Island, the final resting place for nearly 1 Million, including my brother John Turner? Do folks know that it's the largest city owned cemetery, pretty much in the world, and that this sacred ground, its historical beauty and value, is being largely ignored? Access is pretty much limited to the Ryker's low-level inmates who perform burials, exhumations and minimal maintenance because it is not open to the public. And if you're a relative, yes you can visit but with much difficulty in gaining permission. AND, why is this historical location not being considered as such, preserved & restored as it should be AND respected for what it is - sacred ground? Just thought I'd ask.
Sep 23rd 2011 4:03PM I love, love, love this story. With all the awful news permeating the airwaves, it does my heart good to know of this story. Harper is just a little miracle and hope any potential adoptive parent(s) is/are carefully scrutinized - as all should be.
Sep 12th 2011 3:06PM What's the big deal? Almost any home over 100 years old has some nefarious story behind it. I think it'd be cool to live in such a house, with all it's history.
Mar 29th 2011 12:18AM Oh yes, I'll be buying the latest issue of Vanity Fair.
