icon_smile.gif Whether some people like her or not, It really does not matter to her. She does not know us anyway !!! I like her inspite of what she did on that stock thing w/c is really now history.. That stock thing has nothing to do with what she does on TV or in her magazines. I have learned a LOT from her. I don't care if she is a Psycho or a criminal, I like her ..that's all that matters to me.. usaribbon.gif

Just my honest opinion ... icon_smile.gif

I could care less about Martha Stewart, I do care that she is a convicted felon, heaven help us if she is a psycho as well! One thing you can't call her is stupid...she got to keep all her money and her ability to continue making more money, no matter what! Janice

I have had trouble with her recp. and some of her crafts- I have only seen her once on TV and noted a whole gaggle of people doing the cooking behind the scenes just in case one of them doesnt work out!
Since she was found guilty dont you have to have some sort of faith in the jiustice system that it works. Obviously she has paid her debt to society so it should no longer be an issue. She does have some lovely ideas,

Now I live in Canada's capital city, the city from which the rest of the country is governed federally. And yet because of the population size, much smaller than the city of Toronto, we have access to far less things when it comes to decorating tools.



Squirrelly... I hear ya! I grew up in a little town where the Soo was the big city, and Sudbury was the edge of "southern Ontario" (at least to me!)

I now live south of Toronto, and the culture shock was something else! In White River, we had 4 TV channels WITH cable (1 was French, 1 was CBC, and I don't remember the other 2) and 2 radio stations (CBC and a station from the next town up the highway) The nearest high school and hospital were over 60 miles away in the next town.

My DH still (after 16 years in the south) laughs at me... I don't "get" many of the cultural references (many of them American) that he takes for granted.

As for MS... I don't have to like her personally (I don't KNOW her personally, so how could I?) but I LOVE the information and design know-how that she is responsible for making available to me, and everyone else! To have that much creative skill (even if she only thinks up 1/1000 of what gets put out under her name) and the business acumen to run that empire makes her an amazing woman!

Uh, I guess my point in the beginning was this, sometimes people you know, family members, relatives, co-workers even, are charge, convicted and sent to prison for crimes they did not commit, some are even put to death in places where the death penalty exists.
Sometimes people wrongly charged, get acquitted at trial and sometimes they do not. Sometimes the only difference is how much money you can pay for a good lawyer, sometimes it is luck and sometimes just public opinion, either way guilty or innocent.
Until something like that happens to someone close to you, you go along completely believing in the justice system. You have a naive belief that people wouldn't be charged with a crime unless there was enough evidence. But evidence is often heresay, appearances, coincidence, bad luck, an over zealous police department or crown attorney looking for a conviction or someone to pin something on. Or sometimes just the nature of the crime makes it easier to set aside the requirements and bring people up on charges.
And sometimes people wrongly charged are acquitted but the headlines are never on the front page or nearly as large as they were when they were charged. It happens all the time, no matter where you live.
When you see a situation when someone is falsely charged, it makes you re-think every other case out there and unless you were there, unless there is absolutely not a shadow or shred of a doubt, well it makes you wonder. That was my point, there was some doubt cast on this case, maybe not enough to get her conviction overturned or a new trial but she has always claimed to be innocent. She served her sentence and is going on with her life, in the public view. And somehow I wonder if she was a he and not nearly as successful, if she would be subject to the same criticisms.

Heehee, well we moved from Sudbury to Timmins and once phoned the city to ask why they sent out salt trucks first and snowplows later, because in our minds, wouldn't you want to remove the snow and then salt, not salt and then remove it along with the snow? Anyway, the city official asked where we were from and when we said most recently, Sudbury, he stated that he was tired of hearing people from Southern Ontario coming up to Timmins and telling them how to do things. Haha, well the last time I checked Sudbury wasn't south, but...Yes, I fully understand what it is like to live up north and move to a larger southern Ontario area, quite a huge culture shock!

I didn't mean to upset anyone, I was just asking who Martha was!

Yes- it's tough sometimes living in the middle of nowhere. But we chose this life and so we also chose the consequences that come with it, such as having only 4 TV channels, one supermarket, only one newspaper(The West Australian) and limited facilities.

Thanks to those of you for sharing Martha's story.....I know who she is now! hehe

That was a very informative and entertaining line of posts to read about Martha. I've subscribed to her magazine for years, watched her shows, and TRIED to duplicate some of her ideas, some successfully, some not so hot. LOL I think she's an inspiration to alot of people and I give her tons of credit for what she has done with her life before AND after her conviction. She's a true icon, in my book. A woman that will forever be copied, but never duplicated. icon_smile.gif

Well you know, "long and boring" has been working for me for so long, I am not sure if I can change. But I am considering "short and rude" as an alternative. What the heck, when you have a big ego, might as well go for long and rude, do you think that might work for me? icon_wink.gif

How about just "short and sweet?" icon_wink.gif Or just break your posts into chapters. LOL I get overwhelmed about 3 sentences into your long posts and then have to move on. I was wondering if you have voice recognition software. icon_confused.gif

WOW, you are isolated! Sorry for assuming that since you had Internet access you were probably in a metropolitan area or something. Mea culpa!

One of Martha Stewart's recipes is now an Easter tradition for my family. Every year, I make her little "boiled egg" cupcakes. They are sooo cute!
