23 Morning, 'rons and 'ronettes.

Here's the weekly Ziegfeld Girl, Rubye De Remer:

http://goo.gl/ERSpBY

Here's what David S. Shields wroteon Rubye De Remer at his"Broadway Photographs" site:

Rubye DeRemer (1892-1984) Blonde silent star Rubye DeRemer was born and educated in Denver, but heeding the advice of a family friend headed to New York City to seek fame and fortune. She won a place in the 1917 Ziegfeld Follies and became one of the featured girls in the 1918 Midnight Frolic. Weber and Fields in the spring of 1918 enticed her from the Amsterdam Theater's rooftop with the promise of speaking as well as dancing parts in their revue, "Back Again." Yet reciting dialogue would not be De Remer's path to fame.
From her days as a Follies chorine she had worked on the side during the daytime as an actress for various New York-based film companies. Certain of these films - The Auction Block and Ashes of Loves - found an audience. She was signed by the Jesse L. Lasky Feature Play Company,who presented her in feature after feature as an incarnation of feminine passion. Her greatest success was in 1922s The Unconquered Woman. She retired at the peak of her powers in 1923 after playing the lead in Don't Marry for Money, and spent years indulging her passion for breeding German Shepherds.

Here she is again:

And Barry will give away as many f*cking billions (or more!) of our dollars as he feels like! Who's gonna stop him? Besides, those college yoots and illegal aliens are the people who voted him into office, so he's got to pay them back for those votes.

Vic, I have no doubt at all you have way more experience in fire suppression, but my 'agency' had to spend megabucks to remove Halon systems from our computer rooms. Halon works by sucking up all the oxygen in a space, so if you're a breathing organism in there, it's lights out. In an engine compartment, it can't be beat, but does not play well with humans. I'm sure not saying a massive dose of CO2 is "better for you," but Halon is safe to use only in machine-only zones.

If men were trapped inside a Halon discharge area, I'm thrilled that they lived.

That sock of yours reminds me of one of Teddy Roosevelt's greatest speeches. In it, he analyzed the cause of the fall of the Roman Republic. He said that the Republic fell not because of the law, but because of the people. The Roman plebeian that had once willingly joined the legions to fight for the Republic had become a lazy, idle creature that was only interested in free bread and decadent entertainments, that sold his vote to the highest bidder. Though the law was the same, the people behind the laws had changed, and when Caesar came, the law counted for nothing.

Halon does not remove O2 from a room. It works by interfering with the ability of O2 to combine with materials during a fire. It is not something you want to hang around in but it will not suffacate you like CO2 will.


We had both Halon and CO2 systems at our plant. The CO2 was an older system that was originally installed. The Halon system was installed later in the computer room.

I was a member of the fire brigade at work and got a lot of training on both systems. The worst thing about the Halon system was the loud noise it made when it discharged. That and the cost to replace the cylinders.

We had a contractor go in and do some welding w/o telling anyone and he caused the system to discharge. It cost a fortune to replace the cylinders and while we were waiting on the new cylinders we had to station a 24 hour fire watch which cost another fortune.

There definitely was a flaw in the Roman character. Maybe two. The Etruscans on the other hand were by all accounts mellow dudes. We can just barely decipher their language, so you see where being a nice guy will get you.

Nice conservative people, close to Dallas for big city things that you may need, Tyler is the rose capital of the world, you get four seasons.....Lots of things to like with maybe *some* snow on occasion, but only a couple of inches at a time if you get any at all.

186 The Smoking Gun article on Sharpton is important. This would be an excellent point to pressure NBC on, to target the barely-literate Al, but also the corrupt 'news' organization and network that's given him a platform.

And make it known that 'Reverend' Al got stung by the FBI trying to arrange drug deals with the Mafia. Not only a tax cheat, a liar, an inciter of murder, a grifter and a scumbag, but also a drug-dealing hypocrite who informed on the Mob for the Man.

187 Try to get this in before the dump. In regards to the atheist thread the other day and on seeing a supposed new planet Kepler 186-F and the age old question, "Are we alone?"

Did God create man? I belive yes. I also belive we are not alone, and if God had wanted us to know, he'd have told us.
If God is so great, why stop at us? That's kinda presumtious of us.

And if there is no God, it's extremely presumtious of us to think that this is the only rock it happened on.

There's a really good book called "At Home in the Universe" by Stuart Kaufman.

His thrust is that we shouldn't think of our existence as this completely freakish thing that barely could have happened. He explains at a chemistry level why proteins want to bond in chains, what things make them organize themselves into RNA and DNA.

Frankly, most of it is over my head. And it's not a God or no-God book. It's about the rules of the universe. (My concept of God is the creator of those rules).

So if the universe is organized to produce life there must certainly be other life in it.

Lots of nice places here. There are Tucson suburbs like Marana and Oro Valley that are very quiet and nice, with relatively cheap housing prices. Or if you really want to be away from the city, you could go out to Green Valley.
