    On November 18, 37-year-old José Garcia reached the finish line of the Bakersfield Marathon—but he didn’t cross alone. Before the end, Garcia went up to the sidelines to take hold of his 76-year-old mother-in-law, Odilia Esparza, who is battling late-stage Alzheimer’s disease, so she could finish the race with him. Esparza was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in 2010, and the disease has progressed to the point she can no longer walk, talk, or recognize her family members. But Esparza’s daughter, Daniela, fondly remembers the days before her adopted mother’s illness. While she was not a runner, she was a big believer...

The President quickly added, "Actually my mother-in-law-is before Bo..." Question: How is it even possible for Bo to have more charisma than the President? See the video... for the answer...... VIDEO

    A WIFE filed for divorce just a month after her wedding because her husband insisted his mother came on the honeymoon. Beautician Marianna, 36, who can only be identified by her first name because of Italian privacy laws, thought she was free of her suffocating mother-in-law after a lavish church ceremony in Rome. But 39-year-old Stefano, a salesman, had secretly booked his mother into the same five-star Paris hotel. The first Marianna knew about it was when the woman turned up at the airport. The wife’s lawyer Giacinto Canzona said: “She wants a divorce because of her husband’s excessive emotional...

    If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times — Michelle really is the one who shoulda been president. Has President Spindly Legs looked at his numbers lately? Goodness gracious, Iran’s Mahmoud Shrimpy is more popular here than he is! Then Barack has the nerve to tell some reporter than I am “becoming quite the lady about town”! Why doesn’t he keep his uppity in his own business? Even au pairs get nights off now and then — and by the way, they get paid more than I do … which is easy since I get paid with...

    Tonight at 9 p.m. the season finale of HBO's "Treme" will screen at Ernie K-Doe's Mother-In-Law Lounge. It will also be a finale of sorts for the Treme landmark, opened by Ernie and Antoinette K-Doe in the mid-90's; today on Facebook, Antoinette's daughter, Betty Fox, announced that after a garage sale on July 10, she will close the bar for good. Antoinette, an experienced bar manager, opened the business as part of a successful campaign to revitalize her new husband's career. The onetime #1 R&B hitmaker had begun to sink into alcoholism and obscurity in the 80's and 90's, but...

    A desperate husband tried to kill his mother-in-law with an anti-tank missile launcher after claiming she'd turned his wife against him. Furious Bosnian Miroslav Miljici wanted revenge after blaming his wife's mum for the break-up of his marriage. But when his mother-in-law survived the rocket attack on her home, he tried to finish her off with a machine gun, a court in Doboj, Bosnia, was told. Amazingly, she survived both attacks with barely a scratch, judges heard. In defence Miljici - jailed for six years for attempted murder - told the court he could no longer take his mother-in-law's nagging.

    On Friday, the transition team of President-elect Obama confirmed that his 71-year-old mother-in-law would be moving, at least temporarily, into the grand residence at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. Obama has said he would be delighted to have his wife's mother, Marian Robinson, join the first family in Washington . . . And she has often teased her daughter, Michelle Obama, and the president-elect about their household rules for her granddaughters. Bedtime at 8:30 p.m.? "That's ridiculous," Robinson told The Boston Globe last year, suggesting that was too early. Television for only an hour? "That's just not enough time," she said.

    ALBANY, Oregon: Pvt. Duncan Schneider has more reason to behave himself in uniform than most other members of the military — his platoon sergeant is also his mother-in-law. He says he does not mind, since he can serve his country with a family member who also has experience in the military, Sgt. 1st Class Lisa Mesteth. "I feel very good about it," Schneider said Sunday at a mobilization ceremony for the Oregon Army National Guard's 224th Engineer Company, which is about to begin training for a year in Iraq. "It's a family thing."

    CHICAGO - (KRT) - One imagines the Persian queen smiling warmly as she passes the food down the table to her daughter-in-law. Queen Parysatis, during the reign of her son, Artaxerxes II (405 to 359 B.C.), was trying to influence a power struggle within the kingdom and had felt the need to be rid of her daughter-in-law. She poisoned one side of a knife that then was used to bisect a roast bird at dinner. Taking the untainted half for herself, she passed the rest, knowing - hence the smile - that her problem was all but solved. Recorded instances...

    Okay, what would you do? A friend just showed up at our house because her monther-in-law is at her house. She does not want to go home as long as her in-laws are there. She simply will not be in the same house with her in-laws, even if it is her own house. But now she is in our house. What to do? I don't think I've ever seen a situation like this. It is not a case of her in-laws having done anything to her. She just does not like them. What to do?
