Jul 15th 2011 5:35PM Did you NOT read the entire article? She was IN the waiting room of her pediatrician's office when she snapped the picture. Geez. READ THE ARTICLE~ It was in the same paragraph.
Feb 25th 2010 8:22AM My father, Pete, was a blue collar business owner and I worked with him sometimes. It was hard work, setting mobile homes, but he taught me that hard work will always pay off in the end.
I loved this article! It was well written and brought back some memories that I had forgotten.
Here's to the hard working, blue collared, blue jean wearing, loving Dads out there!
Feb 8th 2010 9:48AM Let me let ALL of you in on a secret. I've been on BOTH sides of the fight. I've both HAD an abortion AND I've given a child up for adoption (2 years later). I also have 2 healthy children with me at home. I don't give a care about what people say. I have to live with myself every day for the choices I made in the past but guess what? I, AND ONLY I, am the one that has to live with it.
My one wish is for kids to be spoken to about protecting themselves with birth control by their parents and/or counselors. I believe that parents provide the guidebook to life by the way they live their own lives.
Regardless of COLOR (this affects EVERYONE), kids should be educated about sex. A lot of people today make sex out to be dirty and repulsive. It's a beautiful thing, but one that should be shared between people who love one another and are mature enough to protect themselves and to deal with the consequences of anything that could go wrong. It took me years to understand this and girls and boys all over the world face the exact same thing every day.
Stop yelling at one another. No one is going to change anyone else's mind, especially by use of negativity. Changing your mind can only be done by going through something that affects you deeply.
I am still for protecting women's rights...but only in cases of extreme emergency. There are too many people out there that never get counseling, that never get the medical treatment needed to get through a difficult choice like this and I will tell you that BOTH abortion AND adoption have adverse reactions on women.
If you haven't been in the situation where you felt like you were backed into a corner, don't judge.
And if you are a Christian, your Bible tells you that you are not supposed to judge others, or you could be judged just as well.
Feb 6th 2010 8:44AM My husband and I bought new HE Whirlpool machines last year. I actually AGREE with this article. Most of the time, I don't use detergent when washing my clothes. Unless my kids bring home dirty stains from playing, I don't see the need for it. Detergent can break the fibers down in your clothing and, over time, wear your garments out. I DO use a small amount of baking soda to make my clothes smell more fresh. My clothes look fine.
My point is, don't get mad at the article, just do what you want. Stop getting your underwear in a bunch because someone doesn't do exactly what you do.
Jan 19th 2010 8:18AM Chase - Geek Squad? EW. LOL. I don't trust you people and never will. My husband is an I.T. guy and has his degrees and fixes people's computers as a side job. He doesn't charge an arm and a leg and one price does it all.
You people should be ashamed for taking people to the cleaners for NOTHING.
Jan 19th 2010 8:08AM Hey Gail, I agree with you! If I could get into a country club in my town, I would do that too. You are right about the money savings and about being safe. You know who you are around and you know who your children are around as well and that makes all the differene.
And Bill, shame on you for your old school thinking when it comes to the reasons. You don't know what "color" Gail is, where she resides or what kind of income she pulls in. She mentioned NOTHING about anyone else's "color". So who is starting an arguement here?
You silly instigator you!
Jan 12th 2010 3:41PM My comments? I participated in the color status change on Facebook. After losing 2 aunts to breast cancer, anything that acts like a reminder is good for me. I sympathize for the women who don't have breasts anymore because of the disease, but they should want other people who may not listen to normal reasoning, to get the word into their brains any way possible!
Dec 23rd 2009 11:15AM Mariah Carey is gorgeous, but this picture and that outfit are NOT flattering. The boots are silly in that kind of weather too, but she's insured for so much that what does she care?
Dec 23rd 2009 9:33AM Babydoll, don't apologize for your comment. Skinny women have NO problem whispering to one another about size 8's and above. Believe me. They obsess over our curves, over our breasts...they want a little of what we have, just like we wish that our clothes didn't fit so snug sometimes.
And it's a well known fact that if you gain weight, you gain fat in the breast area. LOL. And they DO look like little boys....I don't apologize. Models are THE WORST too. They don't EAT. They can't because then they wouldn't get contracts. It's the industry and the sickness that it creates that causes the problems.
I would rather have my curves anyday than to be so skinny that I disappear when I turn sideways.
Dec 23rd 2009 9:23AM Fat hogs? I really don't think a size 10 is a fat hog my dear. It's the average size of women after all. And I know people who can't gain weight no matter what they eat. It's sad on both ends. I look at a pizza and I gain weight. Then I eat 2 pieces and I gain more...but guess what? I'm NOT denying myself food. And I am happy. So you can take your opinion of the average woman and choke on it. And then stick your fingers down your throat and choke on it again. Pass the pie please...I need NUTRIENTS! Bwahahaha
