Is all that back-to-school shopping angst really necessary?
Mon Aug 11, 2014
I have to agree, I don't understand the fuss and stress. My girl got a new backpack because she really loves My Little Pony and the actual list from school was pretty simple. Kids don't need a whole new wardrobe to go back to school. I replace my kids' clothes when they grow out or wear out somethin …
Live NFL football faces its toughest adversary
Wed Jan 29, 2014
Gee, I could pay $25 to park, $100 a head for a seat, $10 beers, overpriced concessions, lines at the bathroom, obnoxious fans who will probably spill something on me to watch the game at the stadium (which would probably come to close to $500 for a family of 4) or we can stay home where we probably …
More McDonald's customers say: "I ain't lovin' it."
Thu Jan 23, 2014
Gee, service is slow and food is mediocre at best and they wonder why folks aren't coming? If I'm going to splurge on a fast food burger, I'd rather hit a 5 Guys. I wait slightly longer than at McD's, but the burger is fresh and I'm sure it's all beef whereas at McD's despite ads to the contrary, I' …
Nobody wants to pay for apps, says study
Tue Jan 14, 2014
I would love it if apps would have a trial period. Many times you see 'lite' versions that have advertisement, only a few levels or are pared down, but not with all. Personally, if a game is enjoyable, I don't mind paying $2-5. What I really hate is the freemium model where you get a set number of l …
Chef Grant Achatz starts Twitter debate: Should babies be banned from high-end restaurants?
Mon Jan 13, 2014
We started taking our kids to casual places from infancy. We have dined at a few white table cloth places with them (currently 3 and 6), but if we do so we bring entertainment, work to keep them occupied and seated and would never contemplate a 3 hour meal. When they were little, we tried to time di …
Doctors' group sounds warning on freezing eggs to buy time on your biological clock
Mon Dec 23, 2013
I'm on the fence about this. It is a huge cultural shift. For a generation or more women were told they could have it all, but by pushing to get ahead in the work place, social lives take a back seat. And then there is the fact that some men are intimidated by women who have a better job. Now women …
Flying with your pet? It will soon cost more on Southwest
Mon Nov 25, 2013
On the cabin charges, if you have the pet take the place of a carry on bag, how is it increasing costs? It's just one more way for airlines to gouge passengers. I recall having to pay $200 for the privilege of my cat flying under my seat on a transcontinental move. I can see extra charges for puttin …
Cook, take out or dine out? Compare Thanksgiving dinner costs
Wed Nov 20, 2013
No kidding. I don't see how you could get to $10 unless you assume that there was no milk in the house and you bought a whole gallon and didn't use the rest of it. Same with butter. And I guess if you didn't have any of the pumpkin pie spices in your pantry, you could get the cost up to $15, but for …
Newtown officer with PTSD: Town promised 'to take care of us'
Mon Nov 11, 2013
The guy saw some truly horrific stuff. If his current therapy isn't working, he needs to find some new treatment. And since the medical consensus seems to be that is no longer suited to being a police officer, how about he be 'taken care of' by receiving education in a new line of work. Sitting at h …
Twitter quitters: a hurdle for social media co's path to IPO
Mon Oct 21, 2013
I really don't get the point of twitter. While I have an account, I really don't use it for anything more than entering contests and such. I don't like the idea of editing down my thoughts to 140 characters. I don't really care what strangers think about the latest gossip, tv show or such, so the wh …
