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?

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.

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

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.

A short, but special remembrance of Buddy Belshe. Buddy and his family, Gene and Johnnie BelsheRead More were family friends from the early 1950's. My former husband Don Preston, who passed away this past August, and myself, Joanie Nunan Preston Schmid, and Don's younger sister Linda Preston Raines all belonged to the Huntington Beach Swim Club back then. We worked out at the Huntington Beach Plunge just north of the pier on the beach in a salt water plunge!!!! The Belshe's were our coaches, and Buddy and Don were the same age, and competed as friends together all over Southern California. We all enjoyed a wonderful time as teen agers back then, and those are certainly days to cherish and long remember. Buddy is now with his beloved folks Gene and Johnnie, and they all will bring smiles to faces when we fondly remember them. Lovingly, Joanie, Monrose Colorado

Beautiful Sarah.....I can't even describe the sadness in my heart over this horrible tragedy. IRead More just spoke with you a month ago. I can still hear the way you would say "yuuumm" after every personal meal plan you made for me. I took a walk into Trader Joe's this afternoon and was reminded of how you took me down each isle so patiently and helped me with my grocery list. Oh how persistent you were to make sure we stayed on our game. You will truly be missed but never forgotten. My prayers for peace and comfort to you and your family. Rest in peace sweet Sarah! oxox

Dr. Campion was the best doctor! I will always remember her kindness, patience, and wisdom. IRead More admired her so much and always looked forward to visiting with her. She took a real interest in her patients. She is also such a great role model for younger woman! I will never forget her.....I will miss her so much....I still can't believe she gone like a puff of wind...but her spirit remains in all of the kindness she left behind....I will never forget her!!!!
