I'm sorry but I do not believe any one can predict the future. There is nothing you can say or show me to change that so save the bandwidth. He was a very clever man who survived some rather trying times in style no doubt.

N. Korea is only a threat to it self. They can strike first but that is all they will do. I would venture that there is planned retaliation in place now that would render them in-op in a matter days if not hours.

Top 10 Prophecies of Nostradamus Debunked

"In this list I have tried to be as honest as one can be with the text. Instead of manipulating it to make it suit, I am using what I consider to be a very accurate translation. The end result, I think, is that we can see that most of these predictions are so broad that they really can be made to mean anything we want. Nevertheless, many people consider these to be authentic predictions of real events. Decide for yourselves."

IMHO Nostradamus was a good conman. ;^)

Where is the CDC? Where is Homeland Security?

They should have dispatched advisors and containment/clean-up teams by now. Just saw on CNN TV from the brother of the infected fellow that the bed linen is still in the apartment.

GAWD!! Murphy is really running amok on this one.

This helps the American part of cause by 16 less Americans in harms way and 16 less planes Americans will have to pay for.

It is time for the rest of the world to step up to the plate and pay their share of the price of freedom from these murderers.

It is easy to fight an enemy that stands and fights.

With 2/3's of the vote being Black for over 10 years how can there be such disparity unless it is the will of the voters.

If you research the demographics you will find that the Black Citizens have had a majority in that town for something like 15 years.

Nice double standard there.

Mods can go off topic and joke about it with their buddies but trash others for doing so.

I don't remember the details but, Rolex can be adjusted by leaving them sitting stem up or down over night for several nights to adjust up or down. I took a quick look and can not find this info now.

Twice I sent mine to factory for speeding up, maybe that's where I got the info. I cannot ware mechanical watches for they will not keep accurate time on my arm.

Would they have abanded that baby if she had carried it for 9 months?

I doubt they would have carried it. They would have aborted it.

Some of the differences are delta vs. wye for transformers and services. Grounded wye vs. un-grounded delta vs. 4 wire grounded delta to name just a few. Most all utilities in the US rely on the power company's ground and will bond to it where ever possible. To get a good ground under substations we have buried copper grids with salt wells and rods every few feet.

120v down to 110v/240v down to 208v AC - 200Amp grounded wye service is very common for most all electric home of 1,200 sq ft and up. 2,000 sq ft - 300Amp service, 3,500 sq ft - 600Amp is typical.

Mostly jams and preserves these days. Favorite is u-pick high elevation red huckleberry preserves. Real simple. har!

3 pints red huckleberries
5 cups granulated sugar
2-1/2 tbsp key lime juice
1 tsp unsalted butter
2 ounces fruit pectin

Wash and crush huckleberries and place them, in a sauce pan.
Combine key lime juice with it and stir in pectin.
Bring it to a full boil on high flame, keep stirring.
Add butter and sugar to it and keep mixture at a full boil for one full minute, keep stirring.
Remove it from the fire and skim off any foam that has been formed.
Place it in the hot sterile jars and leave 1/2 inch free at the top of the jar when capping.
Process it in hot water bath for about 5 minutes.

Works with just about any fruit/berry of your liking.

If I can do it you sure can. A lot of work but worth it for the 'good stuff'. Sterilized, up to temp with sealed lids and you are good to go. And you get to get a whole bunch of neat kitchen gadgets and cool stuff and such. ;^)
