Dec 19th 2011 10:35PM If it truly is a private pool and she owns it, then what's the problem? If religious zealots are allowed to post antigay messages and picket funerals, non christians are allowed to sue for being told "merry christmas", and women are not allowed to become catholic priests based on their sex, then this woman should be allowed to post her racist signs. However if she doesn't own the pool and didn't have the owners permission, then it should have been taken down.
Oct 27th 2011 3:59PM millionaire greed? they are spending their money, putting it back into the economy rather than hording it somewhere.
i find it awesome that parents are willing to fork out the dough for their children to have something they can play with and increase their imagination rather than just letting them sit in front of a television all day long.
my father built me a log cabin (although on a much simpler design than these) when i was young. i spent hours playing in it and camping out with my friends. now that i am older with a child of my own, she plays in it when we visit them and i have even built her a small house of her own.

Jan 17th 2009 11:32AM this summer i bought a new car... it came down to the PT Cruiser and the Sebring... I am 6'4" with a 34" inseam... I could not fit into the PT. My knees pressed hard into the dashboard, there was absolutely no leg room even when the seat was back all the way. The Sebring has way more leg room (although sadly not at much as my old 1993 VW Fox). I love the style of the PT, just wish they would have paid more attention to comfort...
Oct 26th 2008 8:49AM sorry to disappoint you betty, but the hype is because it is no longer illegal in the united states... Anyone can walk into their local liquor store and buy a bottle... Cost is about $150... One of the bars in my area has it and sells it by the shot ($15.00) but trust me, its worth it since you only need one or two of them for the whole night long!
Jul 8th 2008 3:45PM i'm still impressed with flight attendants... being 30,000+ feet in the air in a cramped aluminum tube partially filled with highly explosive fuel? not to mention the drunken patrons, the weirdos, as well as the ones who dont bathe.... when one really thinks about it, it must take a massive amount of patience in order to work for such a horrible industry!
Jul 8th 2008 3:34PM its funny... reading through these comments one realizes that most of those opposed to gays in the military are women... are they that insecure that they are worried about their husbands having affairs with gay men???
Jun 19th 2008 10:39PM first off, i am a teacher and even i will admit that there are some teachers who are way overpaid... pay scale should be based on performance and not on seniority.
but more to the point... all of you who comment about "these teenagers nowadays" how OLD are you? You sound like your 70 or more. GET REAL. Teenagers are no different these days than ones from a century ago, they are just in a different wrapping. In the early 1900s (about 100 years ago for you mathematically challenged few) there was a gang of approximately 17 boys in new york city... this gang raped pillaged & plundered, as well as murdered, quite a few people before they were caught... the average age of the members... 10 YEARS OLD! In 1921, while my great grandfather was in high school, one of the local boys brought a six shooter into the school and killed two people.
Everybody acts like everytime something happens, its new... its never been done before... the human race has been around a long time... everything has been done before, it has been seen before... any decent book/film from the last couple years is simply a twist on a former book/film. As far a laxatives in baked goods? That trick is as old as the medication! I agree that there should be some sort of punishment, but jail time? What next? Somebody will "invent" a way to bake illegal drugs into a chocolate confection? Or how about a fourth of july explosive in the toilet? Suddenly everyone will shout "these teenagers these days, where do they get these ideas? it must be from bad parents!"
Jun 19th 2008 10:23PM i laugh at anyone who buys a new car anyways. After buying my first new car, a buick rendevous, and owning it for less than a year before i was told by the dealership that it needed a new engine and the warranty didn't cover some of the labor (about $1800 worth) i gave it up... i've gone back to buying older used cars that get just as good, if not better, gas mileage as these new "fuel efficient" cars do...
Two years ago I wanted to try my hand at manual transmission so i bought a 1993 VW Fox... I spent about $800 on it... granted i did have to buy a new transmission (another $1200), the savings in fuel alone was well worth it... 15 years old, comfortably seats two adults and two children, and I get around 28-30 mpg... It has been upgraded to being my "toy" to being my main car now...
Jul 12th 2007 9:49AM Most of the "sweet" teas served in restaurants, particularly chain restaurants, is tea from a fountain. It is premade at some place such as Coca-Cola or Pepsi. It doesn't even taste like true tea. The best way to order tea is to ask for unsweetened (which is generally brewed at the restaurant) and add the sugar yourself.
The syrup recipe is a great idea, plus there is no wasted sugar crystals in the bottom of your glass!
