Thousands still stranded on Atlanta highways after snow catches South unprepared
Wed Jan 29, 2014
Sooo, I've been reading the comments and mainly it's a whole bunch of "mine don't stink"? The more I learn, the more I realize that when it comes to weather there are a whole bunch of wimps in this country. Hey, I'm a wimp too. When the temperatures get below 20F in the winter I start complaining. W …
Could cold meds help spread the flu?
Tue Jan 21, 2014
In reply to: My Two Cents Worth-3189868 #2.1 Pneumonia (although not contagious because it's bacterial and not viral) is a life-threatening condition, and as such a note from a doctor should have seen you safely recovering at home. I had a cousin who died from quick pneumonia years back because his …
Flu season worsens across US
Fri Jan 10, 2014
In reply to: BoredwithsameO #19 I eat what is generally referred to as real food (my breakfast today was cottage cheese and broccoli) and while I definitely agree it bolsters the immune system I still get an occasional virus, usually the flu. I do run into occasional viruses at other times of the ye …
Dan Stevens apologizes a lot for his 'Downton Abbey' death
Thu Jan 9, 2014
In reply to: keef #9 How long does one expect to remain spoiler free? Season 3 aired a year ago and many news sites cover it in the entertainment section because it's such a popular show.
Non-genetically tweaked Cheerios more marketing boon than health boost
Fri Jan 3, 2014
In reply to: ChristianDemocrat727 #1 I don't have to understand a lot of science to know most GMOs are treated liberally with products like Round-up (after all, that's what Round-up Ready crops are for). I don't need to understand a lot about science to know Round-up is a poison and that I don't wan …
Mega Millions jackpot: Calif. man comes forward as second winner
Fri Jan 3, 2014
Oh, cool! I love it when someone who's a working person wins one of these things and definitely hope the best for them. I know if we were ever to have such good fortune how it would all be handled. I wouldn't need a financial adviser to tell me to set up trust funds for taking care of disabled relat …
5 lessons learned from Target security breach
Fri Dec 27, 2013
In reply to: stratcat820 #3 Erm, I buy the new Blue Tooth out of my own pocket because if my dog chews it up it's my fault? Yeah, why would I expect my credit card company to replace something when I was negligent? Expecting a CC company to replace it is just wrong and we all end up paying for it.
These retailers broke their Christmas delivery promise
Thu Dec 26, 2013
In reply to: Tracy-3347060 #2.4 I've shopped at Kohl's B&M store twice, was not impressed with their over-priced imported junk, no different than what I can buy at any of the discount big box stores in our area for a lot less. I just do not get the appeal.
UPS system overload delays Christmas Eve deliveries
Tue Dec 24, 2013
This will be generally to the folks who're saying, "It's no one's fault but your own." I actually got lucky and the packages I expected to arrive on time did. However, if those packages hadn't arrived it wouldn't have been my fault for procrastinating or anything else. Sometimes stuff happens. The l …
Pregnant woman kept alive against family's wishes in Texas
Tue Dec 24, 2013
In reply to: Person of pallor #58 Yeah, I had first read of this a few days ago but didn't until tonight realize she'd been without oxygen for an hour. That can't bode well for the poor little one. This is just a sad, sad situation all the way around.
