May 11th 2011 1:38PM Stark, cold, white is way too bright for a bedroom. Nothing classy or soothing about either of these rooms.
Apr 7th 2011 9:47PM This is a poorly written article. It is confusing and if you don't already know the story, you do not know who gave birth to whom, in what year and what/who came first. Are these real writers that are on these web pages? If so, what are they doing in colleges these days......certainly not grading papers.
Feb 11th 2011 4:48PM You've got to be kidding. If this is a rip off....it's a really bad one. Listen to Express yourself.....it's so far superior that it's baffling how anyone could think it's even close. The beat, the instrumentation, the voice. Gee, what hearing aid are THEY wearing??
Jan 27th 2011 4:13PM Trump for President...what is so odd about that? Obama had no experience whatsover in business and little in political leadership. The presidential position is called "Commander in Chief." I hardly could call Obama that, albeit he is intelligent, and professorial, and a great orator...those qualities do not a president of a major leader of the world make. Maybe if we ran our country like a business we'd all have jobs right now. I say, why not Trump for president? At least when he fails, he gets back in the game and turns it around. How many presidents have been able to do that in the last 50 years???? FDR and Winston Churchill have been dead a long time....who's gonna "make the lions roar" now?

Dec 16th 2010 2:07PM I have taken interview classes and seminars in the past. Now that I am the Interviewer.....I hate scripted answers and I can spot them a mile away. I want the real deal. An interview is a "reality show"............you need to know what you're getting, not some columnists idea of good answers to give and the perfect body language to use. The first thing I tell people is to throw away all they've been told about interviews in self help books, business writers columns, and classes, and be themselves....or I'll be bored, excuse them, and move on to the next robot.
Dec 2nd 2010 11:54AM Fast Forward to upper middle age. The child you longed for and thought would bring such joy to your life is an on going problem from the time they enter pre-school. They have some kind of anti social problems, lie, aggress, get pleasure out of misbehavior, and become a catalyst for pain, anger, fighting, and grief in your home. They drop out of high school, do drugs or end up in jail for a while. Having a child is not always a joy, much to the shock of all the young girls out there who really want to believe that because they have so much love to give this couldn't possibly happen to them. Wrong. So a lot of people out there if given the opportunity to go back, wouldn't even have children. So what do you think they feel like at the holidays? Bereft, taken advantage of, mistreated, unappreciated, betrayed, sad, and devastated. All because they had a child who they thought would sparkle up their life and be an emotional investment in their future. So here's my advice: Do some reading up on how many unwanted children are taken away from mothers on a weekly basis in this country. Some women have children just to get a baby shower and then they lose interest when the attention goes away and they're left with the financial and social burden of having to stay home and care for a child. See if there is a Court Appointed Child Advocate program in your area. I think you will be amazed at how many children are in need of a Mentor because they have the great misfortune of having one of those mothers who pop out children by several "daddies" just to get the inital thrill of attention and then pretty much ignore them when they get to be in the way. Your contribution could make you feel a whole lot better at holiday time. Imagine how many more people other than you have something to really grieve about.
Dec 1st 2010 5:07PM I was in the beauty biz for years. You're barking up the wrong tree, girls. The hair dyes have always been suspected of being carcinogenic, or some such thing. When it burns......it's bad. Is that common sense or what ? But for decades whomen would rather dye and take their chances. These warnings have been around for years....but has that stopped anyone? If you're worried about your mascara but you dye your hair I would say I'm done listening to you, now, thank you, you just lost your credibility. It is testimony to denial, and pure choice and will, that tells me women will not stop. At least not some women. And the older you get, the more you get scared about cancer, so it's the ones over 50 who usually get real, and take charge of what they are putting on their skin, or through their skin via the scalp. You would be better off spending your research time looking at the toxicity of hair chemicals and toxicity in the environment, rather than the toxicity in your make up. Make up is a miniscule cause compared to what you are doing with your microwaves, your old car exhaust , old lawnmower, old leaf blower, paint cleaner, nail polish remover, house cleaning supplies, paint, ....to name just a few. How much of this goes down your drains, or dumped into the ground around your yards (by you or the people you hire) ? That is where you need to look, not at the Chanel counter.
Nov 3rd 2010 12:42PM Bob, you are brilliant! I wholeheartedly agree about your disappointment in this line up. Yet another Network I won't be watching. Oprah came out of the hideous "Jerry Springer" crazed decade smelling like a rose. So why is she now following the crowd of "snooze television?" These shows put me to sleep or send me straight to the CD player or a book...not that this is a bad thing...but why have a television at all? It's not like TV is affordable anymore. Just to have one necessitates all those inflated Cable bills. Your ideas are great and I love every one of them. Why doesn't she have a movie critic show ? I'm sick of the same old formats. She could have a movie critic show with a spin. Make it a critique of all the sets in the movies, the wardrobes, the design. Like, "how about that little Blue silk dress she wore to dinner in Hereafter?" Where do I get that? Come on Oprah, you have always been innovative and unique (or so we thought). Couldn't she have come up with something more exciting and different?
Oct 26th 2010 1:36AM Girls should learn to be more self directed at a very young age. They should be taught to center themselves on themselves and be encouraged to look at "clique-y," and "exclusionary" and "clubby" as not cool. I went to college in the 70's and sororities were uncool............it was much cooler to be individual, unique, independent, aloof, and non commital. I think it made me a much happier person. I like my solitude, I like being with myself, I don't join clubs, and participate in organized cliques of any kind. The women I gravitate toward don't either and I find them ultimately more interesting, fun, daring, assertive, and fantastic friends to have.
