[ - ] Has anyone been to Guadalajara Mexico? Is it safe? We are staying at a very nice hotel, but dh will be out most of the day for business, so I will be alone with one dc. Just wondering if it may be safe to go shopping, etc. I read a few things on line and seems OK. But would love any feedback from anyone who has visited. Thanks. 5 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Stay for a week, but stay in the park. Then you can go in for a couple of hours, go to the hotel pool for lunch, go have a rest/nap, and go do a couple more hours in the park before dinner. Or you can do mornings in the park, afternoons at the pool, and back to the park for the evening after dinner. Something different every day. [ Reply | More ]

Stay somewhere on the monorail near the Magic Kingdom (Contemporary, Polynesian or Grand Floridian) or the Epcot Resorts where you can walk to Epcot (Beach/Yacht Club, Boardwalk or Swan/Dolphin). MK resorts probably better. And yes, a stroller is a good idea and there are plenty of kids 6 and older using them as it's a TON of walking, so it depends on your kid but we brought it for our 6 yo and it was a good idea and we weren't the only ones. You can also rent there if you prefer. [ Reply | More ]

5 days is good. I would stay at any Disney resort, you will end up using a mix of buses, monorails and Disney transportation options regardless so I think you should pick based on budget. You won't need a stroller unless you think there is a possibility that she would need a nap. all the walking is exciting for DCs and I rarely here them complaining about walking to the next attraction, being at Disney keeps them motivated.

Tarot card readings aren't really designed to answer questions like "when" with specificity. They are designed to give you insight into the many influences, such as behavior, personality, character, and desire happening in your life. I'll do a past-present-future reading for you, and ask about the next three months. We can see if that sheds any light. [ Reply | More ]

Funny, I used to read using only trump cards, but now I am using the whole deck and you ended up with three trump cards nonetheless. That would indicate you have a strong personality and strong forces at work for you. All three cards are male figures, so I infer your masculine energy is high. Your Past card is Justice, which indicates that you've been through a trial recently (not necessarily a literal legal trial, but a conflict of some kind) and that a just decision was reached. You have been dealt with fairly. Your Present card is the Hierophant, which speaks to a desire for order through authority of knowledge, a wise elder figure. You're looking for clarity, but looking outside yourself. This could relate to seeking help from "elders" in the organizations/networks to which you belong. Your Future card is the Emperor, which indicates a man who is master of his own domain. This does not sound like the position you are in right now, so I'm inferring that it means such a man will come into your life who will be able to assist you in reaching your goals. I don't think that the job offer will be forthcoming within the next few months, but I think that circumstances are falling into place that will allow you to capitalize on your resources later in the year.

In one tense meeting in November 2004, Steven Friedman, then board treasurer, chided the instructors for making “poor consumer choices” with their health coverage (citing Celebrex, the popular but costly arthritis drug). If they would not downgrade their health plans, the board might be forced to cut financial aid, he said. Following the meeting, a long-serving photography teacher sent a letter to then–board chair Robert Katz, Goldman Sachs’ general counsel, and the faculty objecting to the cuts. “I can’t begin to tell you how many faculty members I’ve heard wonder that baseball diamonds are more important than faculty health in the long-term future of the School,” she wrote.

I think part of the problem is the myth that people who are wealthy are wealthy because they are so hard working. It's insulting to assume that anyone who is poor doesn't work hard. My father works harder than anyone I know and will never make over $50k/year. If people who were wealthy admitted that circumstances and lucky played a role, I don't think there would be so much animosity. [ Reply | More ]

No. It isn't only the wealth that is resented but the disparate tax structure, the ownership of Congress, and the overall NIMBYism of the parvenus toward the rest of us. The deck IS stacked, and Joe Sixpack is slowly becoming aware that the enemy is not the blacks or Latinos. The enemy is the rich. [ Reply | More ]

The only time this has ever happened to me is inserting catheters in teenage boys, because you have to cleanse the head of the penis with betadine so you're basically holding his penis in one hand and wiping betadine on the head with your other hand, takes about 10 seconds, but occasionally a teenage boy will get an erection. I would say nothing, and continue with what I was doing, and insert the catheter, and then say "you're all done!" and leave the room. I mean, what was I going to say exactly? It's a little awkward but nothing major- it's not like they can help it. [ Reply | More ]

Are you a troll? Of course not, I wasn't providing these boys with hand jobs, I was inserting a plastic tube into their penises. The only reason they became physically aroused is because of the physical contact with their penis, it was a reflex. Did you think I lingered or something?? [ Reply | More ]

I think it would take a lot more than 10 seconds of wiping antiseptic on someone's penis- while their mother is in the room, and while they are about to get a catheter inserted by a nurse who is their mother's age, and while they are sick enough to be in the hospital- to give even the most sex crazed high school boy an orgasm.

[ - ] Why do people blame de Blasio and protesters for a crazy guy shooting cops (and using that as his "reason") and not blame Rand Paul and the NRA for these guys, who also killed two cops AND another person? It is truly offensive that the NYC cops are pretending that de Blasio is at fault, while the Las Vegas cops were not blaming Rand Paul and that right wing Bundy guy who are still heroes to the Republicans. 23 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I disagree. They are not afraid to speak up, they are furious at lack of support from DeB. He has been anti cop from day one. His wife's chief of staff has a family who sings out death to cops. After the assaults on cops on Brooklyn Bridge, he called it an alleged assault. If you watched the tapes, it was clearly NOT alleged [ Reply | More ]

OP: I agree with this. de Blasio should have fired her earlier. But that has nothing to do with whether he is to blame for a crazy guy who needed an excuse to commit suicide and kill people. This crazy guy shot his girlfriend and tried to kill her - and not because she was a cop. And the protesters in NYC have never called for violence -- unlike the pro-Bundy protesters, who basically planned to shoot cops dead for just doing their job. [ Reply | More ]

no one was shouting death to cops. Did you SEE the video? LISTEN? Here is what a commentator said and it is absolutely true: here is something very wrong w/this video. "The audio is super clear and the volume does NOT match the marchers approaching the camera, then being right under the cameras, then walking away from the camera. Also, I've attended many, many demonstrations as a child of the 1960's and when there is a very rhythmic chant like in this video, at least SOME people raise and shake their fists in rhythm with the chant and then these guys break into a VERY rhythmic chant and not one person steps in rhythm with the chant. Bottom Line: This looks like a doctored phony to me. I would like to hear from someone who was on that block as to what THEY heard that day!!" [ Reply | More ]

A man, who had been arrested 30 plus times and, was breaking the law by selling cigs on the street. After the police received multiple calls from local businesses they decided to arrest him and in doing so the man died from heart complications likely related to his ill health and non-proactive medical attention. Mayor deBlasio and others, including Al Sharpton, saw yet another opportunity to pull the race card on the public and accused the police, the entire NYC police department, of being racist and meaning to kill the man. They even went as far to say that their teenage son felt more threatened walking the streets if NYC by police than he did by thugs. The US legal system - jury made up of mostly minorities - considered the case of racism or crime without merit and did not see it fit to stand trial. [ Reply | More ]
