Want to change up a few rooms of the house and stick to a small budget? Get help for free with your house style this weekend with Barbara Cooper in Wilmington!Check out this free event down in Wilmington, Delaware, this weekend for some easy help and advice.

It might be your home's 15 minutes of fame, so to speak.

Area home stager and home help advice guru Barbara Cooper will talk you through design ideas that work for your rooms at the Kirkland's store in Wilmington at Brandywine Town Center, 1052 Brandywine Parkway, 1-4 p.m. in Wilmington this Saturday and Sunday, July 9 and 10.

It's all one-on-one with her for 15 minutes. Get the most out of this free time by bringing digital pictures of your rooms as they look now. She'll talk about possible major or minor changes to consider (and who doesn't need a fresh set of eyes before buying that pricey sofa or repainting the rooms?)

It's a service that normally costs in the $200 and up range from a designer or home stager.

To get the most out of this experience, also think about bringing:
- Photos of the room or rooms from several angles
- Paint samples if available
- Fabric swatches if available
- Specific photos of items you want to keep (photos, art, collections, etc.)

Barbara is an Accredited Staging Professional with her own home staging business, Staged Impressions LLC. She was a designer at the 2009-11 Middletown Designer Show House.

Roger Ebert is under fire for a disgusting comment he made about "Jackass" star Ryan Dunn, who died in a tragic car accident this morning.

Ebert stated on Twitter, "friends don't let jackasses drink and drive."

While it's well documented that Ryan Dunn was out at a bar prior to the crash, it's not proven that he was intoxicated prior to the accident.

Even if he was drunk, this is not a time to make an incendiary remark or joke about a tragic accident.

Roger Ebert for one should understand tragedy. His former co-host Gene Siskel died of a brain tumor. And, Ebert battled cancer himself, which cost him his jaw. I wonder how Roger Ebert would feel if a prominent figure went on Twitter and said, "Hey Roger where's your jaw?" Or, if they said "Roger it's too bad you aren't missing your fingers as well and can't type on a computer and say such ridiculous things."

Roger Ebert certainly showed his true colors by going the low-road today.

His ill-advised Tweet is about as low as it goes. Roger Ebert, who lost his ability to speak, apparently lost his sense of tact too.

First there was the 9-1 shellacking last night by the Phillies, with Cole Hamels dominating the Marlins batters - retiring 17 straight at one point. Added to that, they had five home runs, including two by rookie Domonic Brown.

Today, their  hot streak continued against the Marlins as the Phillies routed them 8-1 this afternoon in the first game of a doubleheader. Kyle Kendrick gave up just one earned run and went to 4-4 on the year.

Right now, they are back at it with Roy Halladay on the hill against Anibal Sanchez. The Phillies are currently down 2-1, but it’s only the 2nd inning.

For the first time this season, Chase Utley will start a doubleheader. Hoefully Charlie Manuel's decision to push Utley won't backfire. Thus far over the first two games of the series it's the Phillies 17-2.

Tracy Morgan is the latest target of liberal, politically correct crybabies after making edgy "anti-gay" jokes, which are being construed as hate speech.

Morgan has since apologized and issued the following statement: “I want to apologize to my fans and the gay & lesbian community for my choice of words at my recent stand-up act in Nashville. I’m not a hateful person and don’t condone any kind of violence against others. While I am an equal opportunity jokester, and my friends know what is in my heart, even in a comedy club this clearly went too far and was not funny in any context.”

During a comedy show, Morgan said he would stab his kid if he were gay and that being homosexual is a choice. Of course his edgy comedy act didn't go over so well with politically correct liberals who are ready to burn him at the stake.

It just goes to show you how overly sensitive people on the left are in this country. They act as though words are more hurtful than a violent act, which is ludicrous. We live in a country where you can express what you wish. If you don't like it, don't listen, and turn your attention somewhere else. Simple as that. I can't stand watching NASCAR and think it's a joke of a "sport." But, I am not about to start up a movement to ban NASCAR in this country. Different strokes for different folks people. Live with it.

Liberal crybabies like the head of GLAAD think differently though. They would laugh if a comedian made fun of rednecks or hunters. But when it's their own it's worse than curb stomping a dog's  head  and recording it on youtube.

Even 30 Rock co-star Tina Fey came out in Tracy Morgan's defense by saying, "The violent imagery of Tracy's rant was disturbing to me at a time when homophobic hate crimes continue to be a life-threatening issue for the GLBT Community," she said in a statement. "It also doesn't line up with the Tracy Morgan I know, who is not a hateful man and is generally much too sleepy and self-centered to ever hurt another person."

People need to get a grip and realize that Tracy Morgan is edgy and anything but a bigot. These same damn libs were laughing their rear-ends off a few months ago when Tracy Morgan said that Sarah Palin was "good masturbation material" during a live broadcast on TNT during a Knicks game. When you look at this it was just as edgy and offensive to many people. Back then it was funny because she's the anti-Christ to those on the left. Now, when Morgan makes a joke about a sensitive issue for those on the left it's a big deal.

Talk about a double standard.
