Aug 31st 2010 4:09PM OMG, I am laughing so hard that I can hardly see to type this! First I laughed at the story and then I laughed at the comments! And I thought I didn't have a life until I read some of the uptight, disparaging comments made about the article. Come on, people, it is funny! What is with you? I feel so sorry for you...lighten up or at least don't try to be a downer to those of us who have a sense of humor!
Mar 3rd 2010 11:54PM When my first gray hairs showed up before I graduated from college, my grandmother chortled I would be just like her--completely white by the time I was 30! I said, "No way, at least not so that others would know!" We were both right!! I have been coloring my hair for 40 years and really welcome a "touch-up" product that works! I use Golden Blonde so the gray grow-out isn't as easily apparent as it was when I was coloring it my natural dark brown.
Sep 28th 2009 2:03PM I still like the Jay Leno show, even though there is something I can't quite put my finger on--maybe it is all the other stuff others have mentioned. However, I really don't like The Tonight Show with Conan and now I tape the Leno show and still have my fix of after-news comedy with a host I like a lot better! Bet a lot of us are doing that! Hang in there, Jay and NBC! I tried to watch Letterman after Conan took over and really couldn't stand him! What a sour disgruntled egotist!!
Aug 5th 2009 11:11AM To all of you who dislike the idea of a harness, try holding YOUR arm above your head for minutes at a time and see which you think is actually more painful, harmful. I opted for the harness for my son because my husband and I were both very tall and it gave my son relief from having to have his shoulder blade under pressure (no matter how gentle you are, it is still opposing pressure) during shopping or walking. And I haven't even mentioned the issue of allowing your toddler to develop a sense of balance by walking in a normal attitude, but yet safely protected from getting away into traffic or a store of strangers. It just takes a second to change or end a life forever. Even if your child is a perfect angel in public with no temper displays, the harness makes sense in so many ways.
Mar 29th 2008 12:08AM I fly quite often and in just the last two years discovered that if I use a nasal decongestion spray before take-off and again before we start to descend, I don't suffer either the pain or the stuffy "airplane ears" after landing. I also have used the earplug-type things called Plane Ears successfully, but they are supposed to be inserted before take-off and remain in until landing--sometimes that is uncomfortable.
Dec 19th 2007 10:45AM What touching pictures to accompany such touching thoughts. Two things come to mind. 1. Many of those animals had obviously been well-treated, trained, and probably loved sometime in their life journey. How did they end up in a slaughter auction? You have to wonder if their previous owners knew what was happening to these horses. 2. Some were so ill or injured that they had to be euthanized, but slaughter house operators would be willing to ship their meat for human consumption. Even if you didn't love horses and didn't mind horse slaughter, that fact alone should turn you around and make you think twice about this practice.
God bless Pure Thoughts and all others involved in attempting to stop horse slaughter--hopefully we are all so blessed as we write letters, contribute to horse rescue causes, etc.
Aug 16th 2007 9:10PM Wow, what a nice, loving assortment of comments on the loss of our pets. And special thanks, Nancy, for the information about the Animal Ministry. When we had to put down my childhood dreamhorse Casey (a black thoroughbred that came into my life when I was in my 30's), I fortunately had a vet who was active in my church and who had been taking care of Casey throughout his bout with liver cancer. When the time finally came to do what was best for Casey's suffering, Ben allowed Casey and me to walk out into our pasture, where Casey picked the place, and then led us in prayer before administering the medicine that would end Casey's pain. He then help us lower Casey to the ground and supported me in holding Casey's head in my lap as he left this life. I can only hope that my death will be as loving and gentle as was Casey's. It is so hard to let them go, but so comforting to know that you did your best by them, both in life and in death. God bless all of us who have suffered through those losses.
Jul 7th 2007 3:38PM Rally has a guardian angel and her name is Michelle! What a beautiful love story. And to have a relative of the great Secretariat is a real honor. I have always said that I would buy any horse related to him, sight unseen, just to be close to that horse I loved so much so long ago! I first said that after a lady near Denver rescued a daughter of his who was in much the same condition as Rally. God bless the FOBs--Long live Barbaro's legacy.
