32 Morning, 'rons and 'ronettes.

During the filming of 1956s Giant, Rock Hudson was especially nervous. Although one of Hollywood's most popular stars, he was also considered to be one of its worst actors, and his role - as wealthy rancherBick Benedict - was a chance to prove everyone wrong.

Elizabeth Taylor came to the rescue, with a little Method acting. If she and Hudson were supposed to be "movie" husband and wife, then they should hang out as much as possible off the set. And so they did, drinking and partying together, and basically spending nearly every moment of every day together. Even after filming on Giant moved off location to LA, Taylor and Hudson were like two peas in a pod, capping off one drinking marathon by hitting a string of Mexican restaurants, then challenging each other to a belching and farting contest (Taylor won).

Of course, all of this togetherness sparked rumors that Taylor and Hudson were an item, especially as La Liz was engaged in massive fights with her current husband Michael Wilding. But Hudson's own romantic proclivities were causing problems. Publicly, he was dating a woman named Phyllis Gates, the secretary of his agent, Henry Willson, and was being pressured to propose, especially by Willson himself. It seems that Willson had found out that Confidential magazine was offering $10,000 to two of Hudson's former (male) lovers if they'd come forward, and Willson was desperate to hold on to his meal ticket.

Came October 3. Life magazine ran a cover story on Hudson entitled "The Simple Life of a Busy Bachelor." In the opening was this damning sentence: "Fans are urging twenty-nine-year-old Hudson to get married - or explain why not."

That was it for Willson. Marry Gates or else, he ordered. And so Hudson did.

Here's Taylor in Giant:

So on the one hand, Obama deflects criticism of muzzie jihadi terrorism by waving his magic dildo and proclaining "it's got nothing to do with Islam." But now it' apparently "they'd never build a nuke because Islam".

89 $2.6B was allocated for fighting Ebola in Africa (and not a word from our illustrious news people). Now questions are being asked about where all the money went and what is being done with the remainder. I suspect that it has gone into an Obama slush fund to be used for "his" purposes.

The fun part is to compare markets - selling here in Northern Va is unlike pretty much anywhere else, period.

Captions weren't unreadably long (except maybe the initial one); cleverly kept... pace... with... speech; the short argument between Adolf and the other guy about which movie was well paced; and at some point, Adolf says something like "fert raht" and the caption is "rat farts" (IIRC).

Because of this, Islam is part of our national heritage as it was here before the founding of the United States. Article ends with some trite bullshit that Islam is as much a part of Texas as is rodeo.

The article also covers the slaves that built the south were, of course, Muslim. And how they practiced a form of Shariah. No mention of who sold them though.

But, as the author points out, it's inevitable that some Muslims will let their babies grow up to be Cowboys. The only thing that will keep this from happening is the evil bigots that won't allow Muslims to practice their religion just like everyone else.

173 Ok, if I buy an apple laptop, what's the best place to get a deal?"

Pretty much stuck with the Apple Store, or online apple.

If you have access to a military member, or retiree, most, if not all Apple stores offer a military discount.

And, if your State has sales tax, but an adjacent State does not, it could be worth the trip as well.

I was reading Taleb's Antifragile this morning during the commute. Key quote:

To take one example, risk managemnet professional look into the past for information on the so-called worst-case scenario and use it to estimate future risks -- this method is called "stress testing." But they never notice the following inconsistency: this so-called worst case event when it happened, exceeded the worst case at the time.

Rough sledding ahead, folks. In all kinds of ways.

Sadly, most guns were lost in a tragic boating accident on Lake Anna one day.
Along with a decent quantity of ammo.
And cases.

Tragic, I tell ya.

One problem with that area, though - the "Pappas" restaurants. Pappacitos, Pappas BBQ, Pappadeauxs, etc...
Damn good food, and lots of it.

Dominique Strauss-Kahn is on trial in France. He faces 11 years in jail for "procuring", which in France includes using prostitutes provided for you by others. His defense is that he didn't know they were hookers.

Now, my first reaction was "11 years in jail for a sex party? That seems a little harsh". Turned out to be a series of sex parties over several years in Lille, France and Washington DC.

So this is his defense now: I had no idea they were prostitutes. It's natural that everywhere I go in this lumpen, pasty, aging skin sack all of the hot young women just naturally can't wait to jump me.

182 Lea

Back to Apple.

If you think that the laptop you want will be configured beyond the basic offering for the different types, most Apple stores only stock the basic trim line for each offering.
If you want a MacAir with greater then basic RAM for example, they will usually have to order it.
Apple Online allows you to configure and order for pick-up at an Apple Store that you chose.

And, if you are anywhere near the Christiana Delaware Mall, use that one.
We love the Staff.
Bought three MacAirs, and a Time Capsule from them so far.

189 Axelrod admitted in his new book that Obama lied during his campaign about his support for gay marriage so as not to turn off the black vote. This is a pattern with Dems, they lie constantly and never seem to hold themselves or their fellow travelers accountable whereas we crucify anyone on our side who is even suspected of impurity.

Helps explain why Brian Williams still hasn't been fired, nobody on their side is surprised or embarrassed that he lies constantly. As long as he helps push the narrative all is good.

197 Almost all of our cats over the past two decades came to us, mostly dumped in the country and grateful to be taken in, some born here in unpreventable litters. Great affection for each and every one of the dozens we've cared for.

We have had outdoor-only cats, but none has been strictly indoor. We've had cats come home with battle scars, one with a broken leg, a few out of the dozens that didn't come home. Owls & hawks, possum & raccoon, cat stupidity - they've got enemies aplenty in the Outside. One dear feral cat (outdoor only) I thought I heard (can still hear) his death-scream, over the wall in the woods. I notice the ones that stay up close to the house and don't wander far afield tend to live longer with fewer scars. All quite Darwinian. I can see keeping the shedding little disease balls out of the house, but can't imagine confining a cat to the indoors. In the city, sure, but not with all this country around us.

I suppose we were lax in proper concern for diseases, though, or, just added that threat to the whole stew of threats in living. Whether brought in by pets or met directly in the yard, the outside abounds with that which is out to kill us. I shrug, scratch, and go on, but some folks even get phobic about the outdoors, I've heard. Like "Islamophobia," begs the question, are you still paranoid if they really are out to get you?

236 Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword....wait there's even more Now what if i told you there was a simple Wordpress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That's right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
