Man’s journey to find biological mom ends — at work

Nicole Parker


For years, Steve Flaig, a delivery-truck driver at a Lowe’s store here, had searched for his birth mother.

He found her working the cash register at the front of the store.

For several months, he and Christine Tallady had known each other casually as co-workers. Last Friday, they met for the first time as mother and son.

“I have a complete family now, all my kids,” said Tallady, who has two younger children. “It’s a perfect time of year. It’s the best Christmas present ever.”

For Flaig, it was the reunion he had dreamed of for much of his 22 years. He had always known he was adopted, and his parents, Pat and Lois Flaig, who raised him since his birth, supported his decision to search for his birth mother.

Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too great for me to understand! I can never escape from your Spirit! I can never get away from your presence! If I go up to…

Gone Girl’s Twisting Ending Different From The Book

Amanda Daniels


As Gone Girl moved through creation, there was discuss about director David Fincher and screenwriter Gillian Flynn tinkering with (and potentially changing) the closure of the writer’s smash hit novel. Ben Affleck, in meetings, portrayed it as a complete rework of the story’s third demonstration. Fincher, in the interim, kind of retreated on that announcement, saying it was taken outside the realm of relevance, and that his ending didn’t change “the marrow of the creature,” just modified “the bone structure and the muscles and the skin.” OK. Frightful, yet alright.

In this way, who is correct? A huge number of you rushed to Gone Girl through the weekend, and you saw Fincher’s ending. How can it vary from Gillian Flynn’s book? We should discuss. in incredible, spoilery subtle element, in the wake of listening to Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross’ haunting gone Girl score.

Still perusing? We’re going to get…
