Dear Mr. Ive,

I am so disappointed with iOS 7. It is difficult for my 65 year old eyes; it is difficult to use and very “cold” in appearance.

I am just an “ordinary user”. I loved iOS 6. Friendly,easy to use, easy to see.

And I find it very controlling that I had less than 2 days to go back to “6”. In life we often have more than one day to redo a mistake.

I found information to indicate you are a “minimalist”. That is fine in a private life; however, I find it questionable to impose your personal views on the rest of society via your design for iOS 7 without an ability to alter various aspects of “your program” to fit another lifestyle.

Sincerely,
Sylvia Dunning

Jessica,
The very best of everything for you.  You are a very brave and courageous young lady.  I am retired after 30 years Army service and during that time I met many brave and courageous young men and women.  Your dedication to Duty, Honor and Country place you head and shoulders above the rest.  I sincerely hope you fully recover from your horrible wounds, both physical and mental, and go on with your dream to be a school teacher.  I would be proud to stand beside you in uniform, in any situation.  Gary Owen!

"Official Website of Little Jimmy Dickens."   Where is the Official Website of Little Jimmy Dickens? It's not on familyfirst.com; nor does it appear to be the page Family First links to. All that is immaterial; if you post somewhere near Jimmy Dickens's name, maybe he'll get back to you.

My name is Donna Slade. I am the daughter of James Laurence Slade. He was a song writer he wrote “Take an old cold Potato” When my sister Cindy was a baby..little Jimmy Dickens took her on stage and showed her off and said “Have you ever seen such a beautiful baby?”. My dad who lived in Purvis and Poplarville Mississippi…and one day when we were out with my father..he saw Little Jimmy Dickens’s bus and chased it down. Jimmy Dickens’s got off and asked which one of your kids took on stage. My father replied “This one” pointing to my sister Cindy.Jimmy Dickens replied “She is still a beauty”. I am commenting all this in hopes to ajar a memory.. My father had nine children and we remember the songs he wrote. We have the rough draft of “I saw Momma Kissing Santa” My dad would sell his songs for $10 or $30 dollars. I feel sad that I hear these songs on the radio..and I know who wrote them. For the sake of my passing dad and the truth of his life. I pray God would bestow in your heart to let me know if you remember my father.

"New Jamie Oliver Website."   It's not Jamie Oliver's website; it's a post from the developer of the website, mentioning his work. But the title is bait enough for commenters seeking culinary guidance.

Hello
I am a pensioner and watching all the programs on Tv and looking at the many cook books none I have seen actually show how to prepare food from the begining,I do mean the begining, how to cut a large sweed, how much do you peel away, how to prepare a cabbage, or carrots even the basic potato. Start at the beginning not half way into the meal
