#2627264 HOTTEST girl on TV currently?

Posted by charlotte49er on 22 January 2014 - 11:16 AM

I forgot one.


Laura Pulver (True Blood & Sherlock)


Her part in the 2 Sherlock episodes  The Sign of ThreeA Scandal in Belgravia  were among the hottest scenes I have ever seen on TV! 






Not to mention, I love women with an English Accent.  (I still think Helen Mirren is D*** sexy!)




#2626915 "Klondike" - New Discovery Miniseries

Posted by charlotte49er on 21 January 2014 - 10:21 PM

I like just about any show dealing with Gold Prospecting.


However, I thought this was exceptionally well done.  I think it captures the grit of gold prospecting the way it was in Alaska.  (Not so, when gold was discovered here in North Carolina and Georgia.)

#2465803 Andy Lucky

Posted by charlotte49er on 04 November 2013 - 12:45 AM

The media "ball washes" someone every year.  Right now it seems to be Andrew Luck. 


How many time did John Madden work Brett Farve's name into his play by play? It seemed like very 4th work out of his mouth was about Farve.  (Even if he wasn't covering one of his games.)  He said it so many time, it got to be a drinking game.  LOL  Every time Madden said Brett Farve's name, college students all over the nation were taking a shot!


Last year, the media tried to make the Luck vs RGIII but that has seemed to die down.  (Maybe because RGIII seems to be more fragile?) 


Maybe next year it's Johnny Football.

I'll keep both Kubiack and Fox in my prayers tonight.

There's one company that takes expired Hot Pockets washed the meet and repacks it as animal food!

Animal Digest: This is the dry by-product of rendered meat. During rendering, all usable animal parts (including fetal tissues and glandular wastes) are heated in vats and the liquid is separated from the dry meal. This meal is covered with charcoal and labeled "unfit for human consumption" before processing it into pet food. Digest can also include intestines, as well as the contents of those intestines, such as stool, bile, parasites and chemicals.

Animal Fat and Tallow: Animal fat is a "generic" fat source that is most often made up of rendered animal fat, rancid restaurant grease or other oils that are deemed inedible for humans. Tallow is low quality hard white fat that most animals find hard to digest, not to mention the cardiac risks resulting.

Chemical Preservatives: Chemical preservatives include BHA (butylated hydroxyanisole), BHT (butylated hydroxytolulene), propyl gallate, propylene glycol (also used in automotive antifreeze and is suspected of causing red blood cell damage) and ethoxquin , are all potentially cancer causing agents that your pets are eating every day.

Chicken By-products: These are ground parts from poultry carcasses such as feet, heads, feathers, intestines, necks and undeveloped eggs and can included any rendered material.

Corn Products: Corn products including corn meal, gluten and grits are cheap, allergy causing fillers and are very difficult for animals to digest.

Food Fragments: Lower end by-products of the food manufacturing process, examples include wheat bran and brewers rice which are a waste product of the alcohol industry.

Ground Whole Grain Sorghum: The feed value of grain sorghum is similar to corn and is grown primarily as a feed grain for livestock.

Meat and Bone Meal: “Meat” and bone meal are inexpensive sources of animal protein. Note that these companies do not clarify the source of “meat”, nor are they human-grade meat. The protein in Meat meal containing a large amount of processed bone may not be digestible and fail to provide adequate nutrition.

Meat Based: A label that say "meat based" may also include blood vessels, tendons, organs and other parts of the rendered animal. Note again that these companies do not clarify the source of “meat”, nor are they human-grade meat products.

Meat By-products: Pet grade meat by-products consist of organs and parts not desired or not fit for human consumption. This can include organs, bones, blood and fatty tissue. It can also include brains, feet, heads, intestines and any other internal parts. Unbelievably, by-products can also contain cancerous or diseased tissue containing parasites.

Take a look for yourself

Don't let the colorful pictures and wording on these pet food manufacturer’s bags mislead you! How does your pet food ingredients stack up to quality ingredients found in our Holistic/human-grade
Cat foods and Dog foods




It's disgusting what is allowed in our pet's food!

#2445786 Property rights and Easements Question

Posted by charlotte49er on 24 October 2013 - 12:07 PM

You are "servient" and the city is "dominant" when it comes to easements.  You get to enjoy the property (Look at but not build upon, keep up the property (ie" mow & weed.) and use the property (ie: stand on.).  The city retains rights to the property and everything underneath.  Most cities have an easement behind property to erect power/telephone/cable poles or in your case bury drainage pipes.


Easements can very from a few feet on both sides of the property line to 10 sometime 15 feet on both sides.  You can go to your counties GIS and look up your property.  Doing a plot map version instead of a the Google Earth (picture) version.  This usually has the easement on it. 


If you do have an easement, then yes, you're screwed.

#2432004 Random Acts of Kindness

Posted by charlotte49er on 17 October 2013 - 11:40 AM



When one mystery diner in a Boston restaurant overheard a mother and daughter get some bad news, he took out a pen and scribbled this note to his waiter: "Do me a favor and bring me their check, too. Someone just got diagnosed. Don't tell them." The waiter, impressed by his customer's act of kindness, posted the note on Reddit — and we're glad he did. (Now we get to have our "faith in humanity restored," too.) The waiter, known as Whiskkas on Reddit, writes that the two women started crying after the daughter received a phone call mid-meal, and that he then combined the two bills as requested. He added: "I waited until the guy left and told them he had taken care of their check, and that he said best wishes, which was what he said to do on the note he wrote me on his second bill. The mother cried even harder, I almost lost it."


How many practice this?


I hate fast food. All of it's is greasy and loaded with salt!  However, every so often, I have to break down and get a couple of Micky D's Filet-o-Fish sammys.  (Maybe once every 6 months.)  Sometimes, I will pay for the car behind me bill.  I just tell the person in the window, "I'll also pay for the car behind me order."  I trust him/her that they won't simply pocket the money and charge them anyway.  (By then, I have driven away.)


In my younger days, when I went to bars to socialize.  I have picked up women's bar tabs or just a round of drinks.  But that really doesn't count as 'RAK'.  It was more to start a conversation. 


I used to always give to the Salvation Army's Bell Ringers at Christmas time.  (They are getting scarce the last several years as people complain to the store that used to allow them to set up.  "bell is too loud, they are asking for money,  not to PC, etc.)  Again, I don't look on that as a 'RAK'.  More so as just trying to give back to people less fortunate than I am. 


What's your RAK?
