  1. babies. Thank you for posting Charlie. It's just amazing the connection my son and grandson have. It's funny how much an uncle and nephew can be alike.

  2. Adorable! I'd seen Deidre's photo before, and it just melted my heart(well, all of the pics of her grandson do that to me). And Jackie's picture is just priceless. Thank you for sharing.

  3. Great pictures tell great stories.

  4. Nice pictures! The first one takes me back to when my children were that small. Many a time when the baby fell asleep on the daddy! And I love when older people still hold hands. Thanks for sharing!

  5. I'm glad you like the photo, Charlie. Thank you for posting and, more importantly, for allowing us to share photos with you. I took this photo in Venice, Italy. I did not know this elderly couple, but they were so adorable, I had to take their photo. Enjoy!

  6. Charming glimpses into the past, and the future, for someone in the middle.

  8. I really like the couple walking. My parents were married 53 years when he passed, and this picture really makes you feel warm inside, but at the same time it makes me a little sad.

  9. I adore these - two beautiful photo's!

  10. I especially love these two photos. I love to study people and these two photos are precious.

Here's A Thought . . . Jack Maxwell and Susan Shaughnessy

Our special guest will be Charlie's friend, the very charming, Jack Maxwell.  Jack is the Host of the extremely entertaining, funny and successful show on The Travel Channel, The Booze Traveler!  We are thrilled to have Jack on the show to talk to us all about his new TV show. He just finished his first season of the show and has been picked up for a second season!

Jack travels the globe to not only get a taste of a country’s alcohol, but to quench his curiosity about what people drink, why they drink it and the stories they tell when they do. At each stop, he connects with locals, immerses himself in regional activities, learns about the country’s unique relationship with liquor and sometimes even participates in the alcohol-making process. If you haven't seen the show, you must check it out the website for #BoozeTraveler or watch some of the episodes online or on The Travel Channel. Check your …

Charles Shaughnessy Blog ~ So this is what I think . . . .21 february, 2012

THE Global struggle is NOT between Christianity and Islam, East .v. is between the extremist and the moderate, the reactionary against the progressive. Look closely at the ideology of Rick Santorum, emergent as the standard bearer of the very vocal reactionary Christian Right, and compare it with the ideology of extremist Islam. Both see Religion as the guiding spirit of society, to the point where legislation itself should be Religion-oriented; not much removed from the vision of a Theocracy. Is there any real material difference between Santorum and the Right's desire to have government illegalize abortion, contraception and many other more subtle rights for women on the one hand, and the tenets of Sharia law that marginalize women in the Islamic culture on the other? Both sides believe in the "sanctity" of life, but will willingly sacrifice it in the name of their Gods. Again, is there really any material difference between shooting a doctor outside his Pla…

VANCOUVER, British Columbia — “Glee” actor Cory Monteith, who had struggled for years with substance abuse and once said he was lucky to be alive, died of an overdose of heroin and alcohol, the British Columbia coroner’s office said Tuesday.“There is no evidence to suggest Mr. Monteith’s death was anything other than a most tragic accident,” the office said in a statement. He was 31 years old.
