  1. Yes, and in all the interviews before their wedding they both seemed not only in love but to genuinely like one another. She had a career in a popular tv show here and could have gone further once the show ended (or she left). I don't think his title or money was a factor for her.
  2. Something I read this morning said that when camera flashes go off it especially brings him back to his mother's death. Now they're hounding him and his wife the way they hounded his mother. The guy went through years of undiagnosed mental health issues because of his mother's death and just because he's been diagnosed and (presumably) treated doesn't mean all is well with him now. Yes, Prince William and Kate deal with it too (Kate has her own set of haters as well) but I suspect he's had more training in dealing with it because of his position in the line of succession. Plus they're different people and it apparently affected Harry much differently (I don't want to say more or harder because they both lost their mother in a horrific manner).
  3. My Sept. 97 moms group decided to move there.
  4. This is an example of why so many of us wish we could like your posts. 😊
  5. I posted before I finished reading the thread, then saw your post about it.
  6. I have an HP Pavillion that's just okay. I don't hate it but I liked my Dell much better. I wish I had gone with another Dell. ETA: I'm a hobby photographer and pictures just don't look that great on my HP. I should have paid more attention to graphics before deciding what to get.
  7. They exaggerate the way women walk, which makes it appear sexy.
  8. I'm only halfway through the second page and already quoted 5 posts, so I'm going to post, continue reading, and possibly quote more Yes to both of these. As long as people, including nursing mothers, keep treating breastfeeding as something to be hidden, Americans will continue to believe it's something to be hidden. Sometimes people do need to be made uncomfortable in order to get over an irrational discomfort. Yep. Unfortunately men have convinced women that breasts are for male sexual pleasure. The change has to start with the people who own those body parts. Men aren't going to suddenly say "Breasts are for feeding babies, not for our pleasure!" But the whole reason breasts are seen as private parts of a woman's body that should be kept covered is because men have sexualized breasts. Captain Kirk kissed Lt. Uhura in 1968. Just sayin' 😄
  9. I only nursed one (my only bio child) and I did it in the late 90s when NIP was just starting to gain traction. I almost always nursed in public but when I was at my IL's and there were a bunch of teenage nephews there, I usually went into a bedroom. It didn't bother me but I knew it would embarrass them. One time dh's 87 yo grandmother was visiting from Tennessee. I could hear her from where I was in the bedroom asking about the baby and me. Someone must have told her, and then I heard her say, "Maybe I'm just an old country girl but I always fed my babies where ever we were. They gotta eat." I loved dh's Mamaw. 🙂❤️
  10. I agree that she probably meant well but I wouldn't have moved either.
  11. I have a Dell XPS that's almost 10 years old. I only got a new laptop because I wanted to upgrade some programs and they wouldn't run on Windows 7. That laptop couldn't run Windows 10 so I had to give in and give it up. Well, I didn't quite give it up. I still have it and use it occasionally. It's still going strong. I hope you can get yours started again. If not, good luck finding one that will last you as long as that one did.
  12. I was on a pregnancy group for babies due in Sept. 1997. It started on AOL, went to a few other platforms, and eventually landed on Yahoogroups. Our Sept. 97 babies are now 22 and a decent size core group of us are still together. Many of us have met in person. It was my first experience with online friends. A few of them don't do facebook plus the email group format is easier in some ways, so we still have our Yahoogroup. We're trying to decide what to do. Even though they say the email aspect will remain, is is only a matter of time before that's gone too?
  13. Please look into actual science, This is from 2015 but it's still relevant as Bollinger is still out there promoting his pseudoscience. Yes it's long and it includes links that are also long, but you can't get the info with sound bites.
  14. I had chicken pox, measles, and mumps all before there were vaccinations for those diseases. I was finally able to get the shingles vaccination earlier this year. The shortage seems to be over now.
  15. We considered renting it but then I looked at the reviews on Rotten Tomatoes. We went with Rocketman instead. At least that one had great music. 🙂
  16. And Billy Joel's It's Still Rock and Roll To Me
  17. I don't want to live in a lighthouse because the stairs would terrify me every time I had to go up or down. Plus I'm at the age where I just want to live in a one story house. That looks like the treehouse hotel where Princess Elizabeth was staying when her father died and she didn't yet know she was the queen. It was in Africa of course.
  18. I think I heard of this but I don't remember where (maybe here?). Both of our vehicles are Toyotas - a 2004 Sienna and a 2016 Camry. Both came with donut spares.
  19. It goes with everything. Most food looks good on it. You can dress it up with a pretty tablecloth, napkins, glasses, etc. And if you move you never have to worry if it will match your new kitchen.
  20. I use inexpensive white dinnerware from Gibson. I've had it for years and have no idea where (or even when) I got it.
  21. Dh swears by Brooks but I've long been a fan of New Balance (recommended to me by a podiatrist years ago). I don't know anything about Vionics sneakers but if they're anything like the sandals, you won't be sorry. I have several pairs of Vionics sandals and can walk around all day in them without my feet getting sore or tired. I have ASICS, Brooks, and New Balance walking shoes. I can wear either the Brooks or NB to a theme park all day without complaint, but can only comfortably get a few hours from my ASICS. ETA: I strongly believe it's a YMMV situation with any of these brands. I tend to over supinate, which isn't as common as over pronation. Your gait, weight, arches, etc. will all contribute to any problems you might have, and will also determine which type of shoe is best for you.
  22. Yep. The theoretical leader has business ties to the theoretical country committing genocide. It's definitely a conflict of interest .
  23. I'm still catching up on this thread but wanted to respond to a few things before moving on. Yes, and maybe just leave the room so you don't have to see what he's doing. Just accept that he does things differently but they get done nonetheless. I loved my mother and I miss her terribly, but I still recognize her faults. One big one was that she believed there were two ways of doing things - her way and the wrong way. It's a philosophy that leaves you with no one doing anything to help because they don't want to be criticized for doing things differently. I too rearrange the dishwasher as we start using more dishes (I run mine every other day) it makes sense to rearrange. When dh called me on it once, I pointed out that I also rearrange the items I put in. Sometimes you just need to make room for dishes that weren't dirty when you first loaded it. So do I. There was a time when washing in hot water was necessary because detergents didn't work efficiently in cold water. Those days are long gone but we hold on to the belief that hot water = cleaner than cold water.
