Honeymoon quotes for couple
During the first 14-hour leg of their flight, though, Matt’s simple cold developed into a high fever and intense sweats. (iStock) For Matt and Dani Fontanesi, everything was going according to plan. The American newlyweds had just been married in February and were ramping up for their honeymoon that August. They would leave their home in New Zealand to embark on a coast-to-coast tour of United States, hiking in Idaho, then sightseeing in Washington, D.C., New York City, and San Diego. After their travels wrapped up, they’d work on a new adventure: starting a family. Matt developed a bit of a cold before leaving but didn’t think much of it—August is winter in New Zealand, after all. “I was 33, and I ignored it,” says Matt. A bit of soup and a vitamin-packed smoothie, and he’d be good to go. During the first 14-hour leg of their flight, though, Matt’s simple cold developed into a high fever and intense sweats. By the time they got to … [Read more...] about Newlywed was diagnosed with aggressive blood cancer on honeymoon

Dear Carolyn: My wife just left me and I am so angry at her I can barely stand to talk to her. She's had mental health issues for most of her life but until this last year she dealt with her depression pretty well. We were together 15 years and have four kids who need her. She just left one day with no explanation, no warning, nothing. I literally came home to a note and my bewildered children. She told them this was temporary, but now she's asking me for a legal separation. I am left to take care of the children, the house, and go to work so I can still pay all of the bills, including hers. I think I could stand it if she were in a hospital or seeing a doctor or … [Read more...] about Carolyn Hax: Mother of four abandons family for a beach rental

It was December 1994 and Trump had spread a rumor that Prince Charles and Princess Diana had — separately, as they were separated — joined as charter members of his new Mar-a-Lago club in Florida. They had even sent in $50,000 checks, or so the story went.“It’s complete nonsense,” huffed a Palace spokesman at the time. Advertisement Now, as Trump and his wife, Melania, are poised to meet Queen Elizabeth II, the president is finally getting the attention of the British royal family, affirmation that he’s sought for decades. The meeting with the queen, set for 5 p.m. local time (12 p.m EDT) Friday at Windsor Castle, offers the rare moment of triumph amid … [Read more...] about Donald Trump has long obsession with the British royal family
There he was on the shore of Lake Charles in Calcasieu Parish, the lieutenant governor leading the evacuation as Rita hit. He could feel when the hurricane wasn’t there, and then when it suddenly was – that’s the closest Mitch Landrieu can compare to May 7, the day he left office. As mayor of New Orleans he slept with his cell phone on his chest, always on edge for the police or fire chief to call — or if he left the phone downstairs, to be woken up by them banging on his door. That morning of his departure he got up, went to new mayor LaToya Cantrell’s inauguration, sat through her speech, wished her well. That afternoon, a tugboat caught fire on the river. One of the barges it was pushing slammed into a dock. Another barge hit a ship.Story Continued Below “My immediate reaction is, ‘Well, let me pick up the phone,’” Landrieu says, “and say, ‘Where are we and what are we doing?’ And then I realized, that’s … [Read more...] about Mitch Landrieu Wants to Know: Does He Have to Run for President?
