please be courteous this 4th. of July if you have a veteran in your neighborhood 

This is something very very important which I’ve never thought about until now

My dad used to have issues with mortar smoke - remember it’s not just the noise that can be a problem.

I wish there were signs like these here.  I know there are combat vets in Syracuse.  I have a friend in the midwest whose life is made hell every “patriotic” holiday because of her idiot neighbors who just don’t care she’s a vet.
I’m not a vet.  I am gunshy.

After designers refused to dress her for the Oscars, Melissa McCarthy launched her own clothing company

"When I go shopping, most of the time I’m disappointed," McCarthy said in the July issue of the magazine. "Two Oscars ago, I couldn’t find anybody to do a dress for me. I asked five or six designers — very high-level ones who make lots of dresses for people — and they all said no."
Instead, McCarthy walked the 2012 red carpet in a dress by Marina Rinaldi, a designer available at high-end deparment stores. While she looked great in the frock, the fact that designeers were unwilling or (even more implausable) unable to design a dress for the A-list star says a lot about the stigma still attached to plus-sized fashion.
