I have some news on My mobile home, the park wants to give Me back full title to the place and I don't have to pay back the $6,500.00 that I was given in exchange for the title back in 2011, in addition the park's General Manager says that they will fix the gas heater and My rent will go down to $215.00 a month(space rent here) from the present $320.00 a month rent and I'd be an owner again, this means if I were to do this, I'd then have to find someone to buy the place in the park, that's if the park is still here in about 4 years, also no matter what they are going to fix the gas heater. The park is getting out of renting mobile homes I'm told. I wasn't sure about where to post this.

A bit of good news for you there, Vic.

I'm starting to like the big blue cock more and more.

Nah, the blue bird is good the rock is better.

Safer to google at the very least.

With less than two weeks to go before the Sept. 18 vote, the poll puts the "Yes" to independence campaign on 51 percent, with the unionists on 49 percent, overturning a 22-point lead for the unionist campaign in just a month, the Sunday Times said.
http://news.stv.tv/scotland-decides/291077-indyref-daily-stephen-daisley-on-independence-referendum-campaign
11 days and 4 hours to go :)

"If Scots voted to leave the United Kingdom, Prime Minister David Cameron would face calls to resign ahead of a national election in May 2015 while the opposition Labor party's chances of gaining a majority could be scuppered if it lost its Scottish lawmakers."

What's it got to reflect on him? It's always been made plain that this is between the Yes and No parties in Scotland, not between Scotland and England.
Same reason Cameron (rightly) refused to travel to Scotland to debate independence with Salmond, it's not his to debate.

P.S. They spelt Labour wrong!

You don't see the connection between Scotland being governed by the worse UK government in decades and wanting to leave the union?

Blue Chicken in Trafalgar Square

There is a plinth at each of the four corners of the square. The two southern plinths carry sculptures of Henry Havelock and Charles James Napier. The northern plinths are larger than those as they were designed to have equestrian statues, and indeed the northeastern plinth has one of George IV. The history of the fourth vacant plinth in Trafalgar Square is that it was originally intended to hold an equestrian statue of William IV, but remained bare due to insufficient funds.

For over 150 years the fate of the plinth was debated; in 1999, a sequence of three contemporary artworks to be displayed on the plinth were announced. The success of this initiative led to a commission being formed to decide on a use for the plinth. Eventually that commission unanimously decided to continue using it for the temporary display of artworks.

In my view the use of the fourth plinth in this way is nothing less than a public scandal, and desecrates a British and Internationally famous landmark. I helped to host a close friend of mine in London earlier this year, and quite frankly I was embarrassed to take them there.

I think they should replace it with a Guillotine.

The Fourth Plinth Programme is the most talked about contemporary art prize in the UK. Funded by the Mayor of London, the programme invites world class artists to make "astonishing" new works for the centre of the capital city

Ah well there we go, "Bonkers Boris" at it again. World Class artists??? A blue plastic chicken is world class art??? "astonishing" yes it is, because they are allowed to get away with it! I know who is taking this piss out of whom, and I suspect most of the public do as well.

There are far too many avant garde artists in this world whose only aim is to shock and be controversial. They haven't got a shred of real art in their little toes. Yet they make a living from it. It's high time the public fought back. Yes of course the world would be a bleaker place without art, but let's have real art not all this pseudo namby pamby luvvie stuff!

Its a pretty good representation of a chicken. I'd like to see your attempt. I know I would struggle creating something that looked like a chicken.

Will you post a picture of your chicken sculpture so I can compare your skills with those of the person with no shred of real art in their toes. You being the expert and all.

Esme lost weight on my cooking!!! That is horrible!!!!!

We simply must try again...

I am pretty sure that Mr.99 is planning another trip to Hotel Korpela. If I'm lucky he might bring me with him. I haven't asked him if he gained weight, but at the gym this morning he was explaining that the extra belly fat is there to help with his workout as extra resistance weight.

Es you got that wrong. At least three pounds hoped over, when we said Good Bye.

Hmmm...that usually works the other way. Curiouser and curiouser.

I went back to the gym this morning for the first time in two weeks. It was hard.

I did weigh myself and for reasons I can't explain due to the 24 hour a day food and alcohol binge that was my trip to San Francisco, I appear to have actually lost two pounds. I am wondering if due to food overload my internal organs just shut down in disgust and refused to digest any more.

yes i can but not the latest posts for some reason even some of your pic i can still see just not the last few for some reason

People have been linking to images on sites that do not like hotlinking. That's all. You can either rehost the images somewhere else such as photobucket or imgur, or just post a link to them rather than embedding the image.

Celebgate: it's not the internet we need to fix but men's squalid behaviour

"There is abundant evidence that large numbers of people behave appallingly when they are online. The degree of verbal aggression and incivility in much online discourse is shocking. It's also misogynistic to an extraordinary degree, as any woman who has a prominent profile in cyberspace will tell you."

Thank you friends. I'm feeling a bit old and decrepid but I'll probably last a few more years and even though I am all alone I'm feeling very happy.

Happy birthday old friend!

Well that's the thing, no one in My family has diabetes, not even in My late brothers family(or even in My ancestry, My great grandpa lived until He was 94), which is really all the family I have outside of 3 aging older cousins.

Then I'm doing ok, since I don't take in a lot of calories, My bread is 50 a slice instead of 200+ a slice($0.99 a loaf), peanut butter is 180 instead of 200+ and the turkey bologna is 70 a slice and I normally have BF lite mayo at 15 a serving, but I'm almost out of that for the moment, so I do without, My nephew won't go without mayo on a sandwich.

Just be aware that if you are eating white bread the starch is broken down into sugar during digestion. In fact digestion starts in the mouth as saliva contains the enzyme amylase which begins to break down your food as you chew. That is why white bread can taste sweet. If possible eat whole wheat or whole grain bread.

I'd love to see them :-)

I know. I have not been keeping up with the pictures. I have started back at college and shouldn't even be on the internet, but should be doing my readings.

So if anyone asks, you never saw me here...

My Submarine Veterans Base has a bus trip to the USS Pompanito at Pier 45 scheduled for Saturday 11 October. We'll be there from about 11;00 am until about 4:00 pm. Perhaps something can be arranged....

We went there! I dragged Eric, Angela, Uli and my husband onto the submarine for a tour. It was fascinating and we were very lucky that a veteran who had server on the submarine was touring at the time with his family and was able to talk to us about what is was like.

I took some pictures. I shall have to put them up.

Why do you feel the need to repost that picture???

Probably for the same reason people post pictures of bacon on this forum?

Sorry moving a 340 ton rock from 1 place to another at a huge cost !.

WASTE FULL

A rock is still a rock no matter where you put it . It's only the arty farty types that see it as anything and they just go with what others say it's called being a sheep .

The painting of a rock is art .

The national monument of the president is art

Blue Polls is art but not the price that is just a rip off and rubbish art a 5yr old could do it with a big strong fan

It's like the cost of 2 match sticks outside the Sydney Art Gallery a waste of money and gets very old to look at after a while , 1 mach is harf burnt the other is not what the hell it is supposed to represent ??

How about how to rip big money out off silly ppl

That what i think of so called ART

Well for "just a rock" its certainly aroused enough passion and debate to be art. The best sort of art does that.

Art is in the eye of the beholder. I actually like the rock. A plus was that no taxpayer money was used.

I like it too.

Here is a painting of a rock by Magritte that makes you think too.
