    If the dog remembers its family after 9 years, I think Euna's daughter will remember her.

    chips for pets are a good idea. wonder if anyone has ever "chipped" a person ... would make it a lot easier to find your kids if they disappeared. just a thought.

    It is not well for leaders or Royalty to be seen in such little attire...no matter how fit.

    lol.

    I like very much of the Twitter.

    In the beginning I resisted and I was hesitant, but after reading an article by Jack Gray, I started and didn't stop any more.

    The Manson killings were horrible when they happened. They remain just as horrible today. I agree with many bloggers...no mercy...no pity.

    The man is out of his mind, and no one should let him back in.

    I do wonder and sympathize with the families of the victims of the Manson's Murder. With all of the publicized news and one of the killer pleading for her freedom must be really hard on them. My heartfelt sympathy goes out to those family members.

    Hi Erica! I miss Anderson, but I like when you fill in for him. Great news about the two ladies freed from N. Korea. Great job Bill Clinton. Very savvy of Obama to use him as a negotiator.

    Just hearing the reportsa from the observers of the gym shooting just scares me. How can people do things like this? I dont think I will ever understand that.
