In Vitro Fertilization Children Are a Gift of Love

I don’t normally get this wound up about a tiff between celebrities and their usually senseless diatribes, but after reading the translated original Italian article in the Italian magazine, Panorama, I have to say that fashion designers Dolce and Gabbana are narrow minded idiots, with too much money, and too little sense of decency.

Coffee Gift

I was at the Kaladi Brothers Coffee Shop the other morning when, while standing in line, I observed a father with his three young sons in the line in ahead of me. The man had his hands full with his three kids. The youngest, an infant, was cradled in his arms while the other two […]

Friends, especially those in committed relationships, have an almost ordained desire to set up you up as if you are somehow broken […]
