Re: Does anyone have true ghost stories ?

Working on a hospice unit, we see unusual phenomenon quite frequently. From bright orbs to partial body apparitions (I say partial because I have yet to see a full one head to toe, for whatever reason) and I have no conclusion as to exactly what they all mean. We also see a significant amount of DB...

Re: Dog Training; Do people really bother?

I took my mini schnauzer to both puppy and teen classes and he is the most well behaved dog in the neighborhood. Everyone comments on this as well.

Re: Best Lipstick Suggestions

I always keep going back to Bobbi Brown lipsticks, though typically I get her nude/neutral palettes with the lipstick inside. It lasts as long as you can expect, isn't drying, and isn't frosty or glittery, which is a look I dislike. I am more of a gloss fan most days, it's a dry climate here so lips...

Re: Proof of Angelina's obsession with all things Jen??

There are lots of people who don't marry for whatever reason. A long-term relationship is a long-term relationship. Also, how exactly does one break-up a relationship? Hold a gun to their head? Brad walked away from his relationship willingly as did Jen's partner (Justin, is it?). It's sad when a r...

I think the only people obsessed are the regular folks who won't let it go already (realizing this could get me flamed) but it always kills me when people gossip about celebs as if they know the intimate details of their personal lives and their relationships, past and present. Trash journalists are...

Re: Talk to me about BC-Vancouver/Island/Whistler!

We do a ton of hiking and camping in BC, I live in Alberta. If you're going to be camping around Whistler then bear spray is a must, as well as food precautions if you're packing any or cooking outside. A small air horn and a bear bell each is a good idea on the hiking trails also as bears are not a...

Re: Working w/the crabby public-vent/advice wanted

So I just saw the part where you said that the physician just sits and listens when you talk about it, so I suggest just taking it into your own hands, put your foot down firmly with the patients. If they complain to your boss then address whether your boss feels its ok that her patients are abusive...
