Our new friend Ron, from New York, gave me a cd of the NOTEBOOK, wow, I fell in love with JamesRead More Garner all over again. He was wonderful, on the screen and off. No scandals and married for so long. A truly wonderful man. Thank you God for sharing him with us for such a long time. He will be missed. Antoinette

RIP Mr. Brown. You finally get to see your angel, Nicole. At 'Brainwashed_In_Church': Once again,Read More why are all your posts so negative? Nevertheless, I'll pray for you.

Negative isn't the same thing as realistic.

Brainwashed, perhaps you're praying to the wrong God or not praying at all? Or maybe you mock whatRead More you fear (or don't understand)? Since you seem to see yourself as all-knowing (others might say a know-it-all), can you say definitively praying accomplishes nothing? Or are you just saying in your life? Most people don't pray as if it to do so is the equivalent playing the lottery (if I play enough, I will eventually win/get what I want!). Praying is a personal conversation with God, and not all prayers are answered. And no doubt you've prayed and felt your prayers went unanswered. Get in line...and realize going to God in your need or suffering is not like going to see the wizard of Oz. While I am confident none of this will change your mind, am curious what happened to you that causes you to mock/insult or verbally attack strangers who have their own beliefs that are not yours?

Wonderful. Most disgusting power play ever- squabbling over the issues of a deceased person. ThoughRead More Rooney should have had a will that specified that issue of burial. Still remembering Gregory Peck in that uniform right now...............

karma..goes around and comes around........maybe next will be Brian D"arcy~~!!
Lisa Ohlund March 29, 2014 at 01:11 am
Mr. or Ms. D. Jude - If by karma you mean that he will have a wonderful afterlife because of the wayRead More he lived this life,then I would agree with you; Col. Foley was the epitome of an officer and a gentleman and a heckuva water man. If you mean something derisive, then you never met him, and I will pray that one day you will rest in peace.
Sid Caesar has died. He was 91. Patch file photo.
GreenInOC February 12, 2014 at 07:07 pm
If you ever get a chance to watch "Hail Sid Caesar!", it's a fantastic documentary. I'veRead More always found it fascinating that modern day comics continue to speak of Sid in awe and admiration.
Dave February 13, 2014 at 07:27 am
No question Caesar was a genius but he also had a great eye for talent, hand picking his co-stars onRead More "Show" and writers, Mel Brooks, an 18 year old Woody Allen, Neil Simon, Larry Gelbart and Carl Reiner to name some of the most prominent. I had the great privilege and pleasure to see Mr Caesar give a two hour talk in the board room of the Screen Actor's Guild on Wilshire just east of the La Brea Tarpits about 8 years ago. Although the once tall and strapping Caesar had become shrunken and bent with age, once he was seated on the dais with moderator Joe Mantegna, you'd have thought you had been transported back to 1954 as Caesar came alive telling us of his memories working with all these great talents while tossing out some of his best bits- the foreign language imitations being as fresh and funny as they were on "Show of Shows". It was a night I won't soon forget and I am so glad I was able to see him in this small and intimate room. Rest in Peace, Sid. We won't be seeing your like again any time soon.

@Dave, what a treat - I wish I had been able to listen to him speak in person.

Guess we know who has the money to do whatever they wish.... "In February 2012, the church'sRead More property was sold to the Roman Catholic Diocese of Orange for $57.5 million. The church is making $29 million in renovations to the famed Garden Grove cathedral"
Paula Thomas February 12, 2014 at 07:57 am
Aside from all there problems of recent times they touched so many lives with the good news messageRead More of our living Christ. When involving families in any business especially in-laws it usually becomes problematic. It's a shame that at the end of their lives, after so much good they had given to OC and the world, it had end sadly. RIP sweet Arvella Schuller
Pascal February 12, 2014 at 06:47 pm
What is money, though, really? Did someone see an actual exchange taking place? Since all of us areRead More related, one way or another, including animals (since apparently a Chimpanzee's DNA is 98% identical to a human's) and humans are not a majority on earth, what constitutes money? Wouldn't that be that which is most valuable to the majority? Therefore.... air? Water? Then how is it quantified? What the heck is a dollar? Just saying..... not that I have a solution to the problem.

For us long suffering Padres fans, Jerry was always a beacon of light that took us through the manyRead More lows and the less frequent highs. No disrespect to Tony Gwynn but Jerry will always be Mr. Padre.

I missed this news when it first happened. How sad. I've always enjoyed Jerry Coleman's work.

My thoughts and prayers go out to Kyle's family. As an employee at his school, I got to meet KyleRead More and he was a really nice kid who always had a smile on his face. I'm sure he will be missed by all who knew him.

Mental illness is very common in families. It's heartbreaking, overwhelming and it has affected meRead More personally. Mr. Warren you are not alone. My heart hurts for you and your family.
M April 10, 2013 at 10:44 am
I don't think Rick warren or his church need any more "donations". If anything Rick warrenRead More should be donating his funds to organization that help the mentally ill.
Greg M. April 10, 2013 at 03:03 pm
You obviously do not know Rick Warren or the works and causes he has supported and personallyRead More contributed to throughout the years, including helping the mentally ill, or you wouldn't make such an ignorant and/or uninformed comment. Amazing the lack of compassion some people can have at such a sad and difficult time for Rick and his family.

Tina, I have not visited the site for a while and I see that you are still making it your personalRead More forum. That is unfortunate, because you have violated the purpose of the site.
