The ONT Is Always Looking Out For YouTM Repaving Project On I-95 In South Philly ‘Like Hitting A Brick Wall,’ Causing Dangerous Situation, Drivers Warn

Normally Saturday ONT's do not carry Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day. Tonight is different.

A Mississippi teenager became a life-saver Sunday as he helped four people to safety from the Pascagoula River.

It was 2:30 a.m. when Corion Evans, 16, saw a car with three people inside it drive into the river

Look out Guy Fieri and CBD.

Deep in southwest Virginia, there's a county fair where, last month, one woman won first, second and third place for best cookies.

She also swept all three awards for candy and for savory bread.

In fact, she won the blue ribbon for cake, pie, brownie, sweet bread and best overall baked good (that was strawberry fudge.)

It didn't stop there.

And this is why you should check out CBD's Mid-Morning Art Thread Monday - Friday.

The ONT Musical Interlude & Strawberry Jam Emporium


Born on this day: 9 Jul 1946
British singer Bon Scott (Ronald Belford Scott), with Australian rock band AC/DC from 1974 until his death in 1980. He was brought up in Kirriemuir, Scotland before moving to Melbourne, Australia, with his family in 1952 at the age of six. Having arrived from 'Bonnie Scotland', he was dubbed 'Bon', and the nickname stuck. After a night of heavy drinking, Scott was found dead in the backseat of a friend's car in South London on 19 February 1980, the cause of death being subsequently listed as ’acute alcohol poisoning'. via thisdayinmusic.com

Would-be bank robber wearing gas mask and GoPro camera leaves empty-handed


A man wearing a gas mask and a GoPro camera twice failed to scale the teller counter at a bank in Mercer County on Wednesday before riding off on a motorcycle, authorities said.

The man walked into TD Bank on State Road in Princeton at about 3:20 p.m. and approached the unoccupied teller counter, Princeton police said Thursday. Seeing no employee, the man tried to jump over the counter but wasn’t able to, according to Lt. Christopher Tash.

After the would-be robber tried and failed again, he left the bank and fled toward Princeton Avenue, Tash said

My statement was, essentially, that the Constitution was an excellently written document whose authors were sufficiently aware of how empires rise and fall to come up with something that could stand up to the test of time. For the most part I still stand by that, but we really could have done without the Commerce Clause. That part hasn't aged so well.

47 I mentioned previously about the big (and I mean big) orange and white feral cat who comes around every so often (like today). I give him treats and hang out with him, usually taking pics. I looked closely at some pics I took today and compared it to a few I took on May 5. There are now dark (not completely black) marks at the side of his left nostril and right side of his left eye (actually on the bridge of his nose). My first thought is cancer. Granted, the new, little feral cat had come by and kind of harshed his buzz, so he was a little more downcast than usual (he's very shy but he comes up to me), but he just seemed affected by something. This situation worries me. I don't want him to suffer.

not even the army can do anything - there's no more gas or diesel left for them to even start up any of their vehicles. And they're as pissed off as everyone else is.

I seem to recall that in the civil war with the Tamils about a decade ago, a whole lot of the killing was done with machetes or the equivalent.

"Getting rid of the cockroaches is the easy part. Hard part is next, which is how do you restore order and keep the next Hitler from taking over."

what made Hitler so powerful was that he took over a modern economy with a powerful industrial base. it's not nearly so much fun to take over a giant shithole where everything is broken and *nothing* is capable of working. India could walk in and take over if they want; but I'm sure they're thinking "nah bro, no way is that mess worth the effort".

Posted by: davidt


Burgers like that look great, but I'm always disappointed when I eat them. Too large and you can't get a decent bite. Too many ingredients and they all run together and make a slop. I go with cheese, mustard, onions, and maybe one other sauce such as ketchup. Or some specialty burger with maybe 2 or 3 things.

Kinda. The corruption was always there. But the corruption led to bankruptcy, which led to IMF bailouts, which led to demands of meeting ESG rules of the greenies, which led to massive crop output drops, which led to starvation and bankruptcy, and so on.

Sri Lanka's only value to anyone was the specialty crops and spices they could produce. The Government bought into the Green bullshit and stopped them from buying fertilizer. This collapsed the economy so completely they could no longer buy any oil or gas. (they produce none themselves) Between that and the fertilizer, they are now producing *nothing* of any kind. It doesn't matter who they're indebted too, the entire country is now literally worthless.

We joke about that stuff, but I think a lot of it has to do with local custom. I grew up in an area where Baptists and Calvinists were very socially conservative, similar to the movie "Footloose". I knew kids who couldn't play cards, dance, go to movies, and parents were against drinking. But people from other areas who belonged to the same protestant religions weren't that strict.

Had a long day today. Out at 0900 to get a stored engine prepped for sale. Got it started up. Buyer came, heard it run, was happy. We loaded him up, found a transmission to go with. I got paid a nice chunk of change.

Ran the riding mower until the fuel just would flow no mo'. Hoisted it up, did a blade swap, and sharpened both sets of blades. Replaced a bad tire, and replaced the clogged fuel line. Mower has its "mow jo" back, ran like a top, and cut clean.

Tried to start my '96 Diesel suburban; got the engine to bark, but ran down my batteries. They are on charge.

And a friend came by, and we used my tore machine to bust a bunch of tires off rims.

The LTTE gained global notoriety for using women and children in combat and carrying out a number of high-profile assassinations, including former Indian Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi in 1991 and Sri Lankan President Ranasinghe Premadasa in 1993. Consequently, the LTTE has been designated as a terrorist organisation by 33 countries, including the European Union, Canada, the United States, and India.

I bet there were more than a few (former) Tigers in the crowd that stormed the palace.

I like beer for its taste with food mostly now. If I drink beer by itself it is generally a Mexican lager while I'm outside for chillaxin purposes. If I want a little buzz I'll sip whiskey instead. I have no need to ever get drunk again in my life so a light consistent buzz is perfect and whiskey is better at that.

Posted by: Zettai at July 09, 2022 10:45 PM (cz2y9)

Sri Lanka's only value to anyone was the specialty crops and spices they could produce. The Government bought into the Green bullshit and stopped them from buying fertilizer. This collapsed the economy so completely they could no longer buy any oil or gas. (they produce none themselves) Between that and the fertilizer, they are now producing *nothing* of any kind. It doesn't matter who they're indebted too, the entire country is now literally worthless.

361 Welp, back from Kasilof, with many a salmon in the cooler. It was a lovely week on the river, lots of fish to be had. Last night we cooked flounder, salmon and spot shrimp in the grill, along with a few wonderful friends. The shrimp was frozen, but caught in Prince William Sound not a couple of weeks ago, and the rest was the catch of the day. Ate like pigs, had a few lovely cocktails, slept like the dead and drove back to town this afternoon.

Washed the sand out of everything and picked up the dogs, so all is right with the world now. This week we smoke and can salmon with wild abandon and lots of sweet brine.

I don't think I've ever seen more wit and engaging dialog as was in the Thin Man movies. I don't think that sort of back and forth comedy timing has ever been improved on. I think it was really perfected earlier in the radio shows where you didn't have visuals to fill in the time and so you had to keep their attention with dialog. The radio shows were sharp and snappy so that translated to some early screen comedy. But, like I said, I can't remember any modern movie that comes close.

438 For those who never heard about it, Sri Lanka suffered through one of the longest civil wars of the 20th Century. The Sinhalese majority against Marxist guerrilla group called the Tamil Tigers, drawn from & supported by the Tamil minority.

With the help of its ally India, the govt of Sri Lanka finally imposed a Carthaginian peace on the Tigers, like the one Rome imposed on Carthage-- like THAT "peace." There's no substitute for total victory.

So, no more Tigers. All gone. Quiet as the grave, so to speak. They were an unusually nasty piece of work, and, inter alia, they assassinated former (& likely to have been future) Indian Prime Minister Rajiv Ghandi.

Debby, I haven't been able to find any jalapeno around here. The last time I had some was at last year's TxMoMe.

The next best thing may be to order some jalapeno powder from the internet and sprinkle it on bacon while cooking it. I haven't tried that yet.

A lot of the early movie comedic timing was developed in Vaudeville. It's also why a lot of earlier movies look very 'stage-y' with a lot of indoor scenes (and many outdoor scenes on a sound stage)

When the first 'Thin Man' movie came out, radio was only 16 years old (KDKA in November, 1920).

Thanks for noticing.

If you are buying for a French Bulldog, I have found that my Conor hates toys with ears and views them as an abomination. Thus, he will spend a lot of time trying to de-ear any such aberrant toy. The down side is that I have to keep an eye on both Conor and the toy to ensure that he never gets to actually eat the ear (which seems to be a really bad thing for him to do). There are some really well made heavy duty tough fabric toys that give him a lot of pleasure as he tries to destroy them.
That's all I've got, hope it helps!

There were silly Hollywood moments but all in all the plane stuff wasn't TOO far out (except of course the idea that a skilled test pilot would push a plane past designed airspeed heat tolerance cause he was just that much of a badass). It was much better than I expected it to be. I don't have much to do with modern media culture so the previews were shocking though. Sick, twisted, and extremely loud and quick cut. Yuck. The upcoming Korean War Corsair movie Devoted might be good though.

One year there was a big nest in my backyard at the old house. A friend of mine poured gas down the hole, 2 cycle premix actually. The bees coming back started hovering around it. There was an old small bird nest laying on the ground nearby, so I stuck a stick in it, lit the nest, then flicked it at the hole. A huge mushroom cloud of flame appeared. My friend starts laughing and says, damn, those bees just fucking melted. The hole burned for hours, it was like the flame on kennedy's grave.

I never used the spoon for spaghetti, never seen any relatives doing that either. I had a friend from Brooklyn who did it that way. He was over for dinner one night and asked for a spoon. He then says, yeah I use a spoon, I'm a real italian. I told him uh, no asshole, you were born here. lol

The spoon is for:
1. getting just the right amount of spaghetti or fettuccine in your cake-hole;
2. getting a huge amount packed tightly around the fork so it just fits your gigantic furnace;
3. as an aid to beginners to master twirling and eating with one hand eventually.

I stick the fork straight down into the spaghetti near the edge of the plate, because that gets cold the fastest, and I use the plate as the "stop" for winding it. I get the right amount by doing that, and don't end up with cold spaghetti at the edge of the plate, and slowly work my way towards the center of the plate.

538 For Jalapeno Bacon on the fly, simply open a can of pickled jalepenos, grab a handful, and squeeze the juices into the skillet while the bacon fries.

Simple as that, really.

Same technique works quite well over a platter of bean & cheese & beef fajita nachos. No need to en-soggify the nachos with dripping wet jalepenos, when a good squeeze of juice will yield all of the flavor needed.

Just remember your hands are soaked in jalepeno juice. Matters when you use a napkin, wipe your eyes, unzip to take a leak, etc.

Damn, I have to tell that again? I think this time I'll put it in notepad so I can just paste it in the future. Anyway, after high school I had plans, I was supposed to go to devry because I had 2 years of electronics in school, and I kinda liked it. The other possibility was learning my father's business, which I did anyway, but there was talk of me eventually running it. Anyhow, I started playing guitar at age 7, so by 15-16 I was waaay good enough to play with garage bands and basement bands etc etc. By the time I was 18 I was playing 11 years and was learning just about anything put in front of me, and I played with a lot of different bands, for fun really. An older friend, a guitar player, had a band, and they were already playing in the clubs. He lost his other guitar player and wanted me to come jam with them, so I did. It went real good, they were the best band I had played with up to that point, and I knew most of the songs. Then he says we got a gig coming up, and I really need you to play. At first I was like yeah I don't know about that. Continued....

In my mind I wasn't really equipped gear wise for pro situations. I had one amp and 2 guitars, and really didn't want to spend money I didn't have at the time to upgrade the gear. I had a hotrod that I was building, etc, and other interests. I had took the year off after high school to work and make money for when I went to devry, but also to have a year break to see what I really wanted to do. So after the first set my friend says " that was great, we want you to join permanently, this will be killer, blah blah etc. I said I don't know, I'm not really ready for this. Sooo, I go outside through the back door for a smoke. I'm standing out there, and these 2 chicks walk out. One blonde, one ginger. The ginger got a beautiful rack, like grapefruits. She was wearing one of those form fitting leopard print tops they wore at the time that were cut kinda low. She asks if I wanted to party, and she pulls out a vial of coke. I said no I can't, I gotta play, I can't fuck up. She is persistent and pulls out a joint. Continued....

It will set a bad precedent, that's for sure. If they are captured, the Russians will not hold to the Geneva Convention regarding their treatment. They will be treated as spies during wartime which equals instant death, unless they can torture some information out of them, then it's death.

Seriously, if we can see the problem with this plan, why can't these two dim bulb 'veterans' not see the problem?

We are being governed by dangerous, incompetent fools who think themselves wicked smart. It is not ending well. I only hope we can go full Sri Lanka on their worthless asses before it's too late.

590 My earliest rock n' roll memory, there was this chick with a perfect rack in a leopard print top. I'd been bangin' her the last two days or so, and she was stone trippin', boo.

Last time I saw her, was at a metal show in N.J. Band was hammerin' it, but the young lead up on stage, no one knew, but he was rippin' it like none of us had ever seen or heard. He was a Rock God on the Half Shell, and didn't even know it.

I quickly pinched off a half-gram of coke into a mini-zip bag for her, and told her to lurk in the alley, backstage. That's where all the rockers slip out to so they can smoke shoot or snort their next hit before the next set.

Things came together as planned. Even better. He didn't smoke it, he didn't smoke it, he licked it. And ascended into Metal Lore from there, onward.

Never underestimate the power of a line of coke, a great rack and the always stylish, leopard print top.

That is very true, and it was a consideration. I did not want my parents to have to deal with that expense. Carter had just got done fucking the country 10 different ways. My father had only just started his business a few years before, because his old business was in newark, and yeah no explanation needed why he sold it, and it was rough the first few years thanks to the retard peanut farmer. My mom was working, so that helped a lot, but paying for school was something I did not want them to deal with. So yeah, no debt.

One of the more memorable concerts I went to was in high school, around 17 or so. I was driving a couple of guys to see Foghat/Mountain. One guy decided to drink straight gin because he didn't like weed. Well, we get to the gate to hand in our tickets and this guy goes berserk. Starts screaming, 'I'm storming the Bastille!' Didn't see him after that as he got taken by medical to the hospital (found that out the next day). His father was not amused with me but, hey, I didn't force his son to drink straight gin. Shoulda stuck to weed, Bro.

I've got that stupid thing set up now. Since putting it on and intializing, I've taken 539 steps and burned 18 Cal. it says. Distance walked since, 0.18 mile.

Lost of other shit. Don't know how accurate. Don't know how this things measures blood pressure. But it's doing it. Now says 102/60. I think that's a little low, but it was pretty close a while back.

I would not be doing this for anyone but my mother (and Miley, of course). But that's about it for this silly shit.

619 Another concert I went to in high school was an all day one in Richmond, VA, at the University of Richmond's football stadium, about an hour and a half away. There were like 6 or 7 bands, the headliner being Steve Miller but including Ted Nugent and the Amboy Dukes, James Cotton Blues Band, McKendree Spring and some I now forget. Turned into a full on riot, I think because beer had been confiscated at the gate, with an athletic storage building being burned, police helicopters overhead and State Police in riot gear inside the stadium at all the exits. All that happening while the bands played on.

Concerts be fun.

625 You know, I do often think back to that night. It wasn't just the boobs, it definitely pushed me over the edge because I was seeing the shit I only read about at the time. I remember thinking its true, holy shit its really true. The other thing was the sheer unbridled power of hammering away with a good band and the huge wall of sound it produces, and even better when everybody is hitting their marks. It a hard feeling to explain, and I can never really find the words to sum it up. The only thing I can think of is its metal, its loud, fast, powerful, and you are like frigging vikings, and you get in that moment, and the adrenaline is off the charts. I wouldn't change a thing, I don't regret my decision. I had learned my father's business anyway, and ended up working in that field along with the music thing, but it wasn't flexible. I turned down a 75K a year job...in 1990, to stay in music. Stop music, cut your hair, and make 75K. Couldn't do it.

Posted by: Rodrigo Borgia at July 09, 2022 10:04 PM (bW8dp)

In non-monarchical Parliamentary republics, the President serves as head of state, replacing the sovereign. The Prime Minister serves as head of government. The ministers heading up the executive organs are drawn from the Parliament (legislature). Examples: Ireland, Israel, India.

In a US style government, the President serves as both head of state and head of government.

The announcer's prayer beforehand was heartfelt and moving. And then we sang the National Anthem, with only a short moment of getting on key on the PA from what sounded like the Zac Brown Band. For the first time in a long time I felt like we were among good Colorado people.
