I remember being at Amsterdam, in the early 90's. I was loitering at the train station, just observing everything when a man walked right up to me. He had open sores on his face and hands and announced he had Aids and he would spit at me unless I g

Just send an e-mail with the bio to the Edit e-mail address. Do include a link to the memorial and a link to your member page so you will be credited for the bio. It will not be changed without the first link and perhaps not without the second.

Just get an air horn. The more noise you make the less attractive you are to animals and humans. It's also safer for you and your kids. I'd hate to have to place flowers on a memorial for you.

I live in a town of less then 10,000. We have no panhandlers to speak of, but every once in awhile someone passing through will be seen outside Walmart holding a sign asking for money. Our local police will give them the directions to the local shel

Going to visit a cemetery should not prompt you to go in armed. I've never heard of using hornet spray as a defensive measure, that's crazy. If you sprayed at someone and didn't put them down with a direct shot to the face, they would be coming a

I've also had memorials deleted after I sent edits (parent/spouse links, dates, etc). I learned that if you send new style updates and the memorial is deleted so are those edits (which makes sense). I only found this out because I also sent bio updat

I remember being in Milan, Italy, back in 2007. At the main metro station was an old man begging for money, sitting around the telephones. This civilian man started yelling at him to go, like, you can see he would have kicked him out physically. T

I'll often transfer memorials, but I do look at the person requesting the transfer first. If s/he has created hundreds of "burial unknown" memorials, that tells me they are not "getting" the purpose of the site, and I will refuse
