One of his coworkers reported him. I worked in a few care centers in the U.S. after retiring from the military. Staff members are bound by law to report abuse, suspected abuse, or comments by residents about being abused.

While you're in Belgium, why not try some of those Trappist beers. Like Westvleteren XII, which has won more than one award as Best Beer in the World.

The poor child dies only a week after it gets home because of medicines that you have access to mysteriously appearing in her milk. Murderer.

So she worked as a hostess, had sex with a customer and made an unwanted child, had no further contact with the "father", but had no motive? There's your motive right there, or are you just ignet.

I intend to stay in Japan. I am collecting a monthly military pension, plan to start collecting Social Security at the minimum age of 62, and the Japanese pension as soon as I get paid for 10 years. I hope I stay healthy long enough to make it worth the trouble

@ Do the Hustle, if you pay into the pension system for a minimum of 10 years straight, you can collect no matter where you retire. That's what my wife tells me but you should double-check

Do the Hustle is correct. Why would cats (or other predators) expend energy and risk injury chasing rats, when they could gorge themselves on the fish scraps laying around and choking the drainage system.

There's already an unexpected problem at the new location. The drains are quickly clogging up with the fish waste

I watched this on the news this morning. He ran across several tracks, lucky he didn't get hit. Cameras in the neighborhood got a good look at his face. My granddaughter asked "Whats wrong with his eyes?" because he had a scary, bug-eyed expression.
