So here’s how dumb the credit card people are. The form instructions (for bogus charges) say to fax it or mail it to some address in Texas using the enclosed envelope – addressed to South Dakota!! So I faxed it…
Tadeusz Kościuszko (1746–1817) was a military leader who became a national hero in Poland, Lithuania, Belarus, and the United States. He graduated from the Corps of Cadets in Warsaw, Poland, before studying in France. In 1776, he moved to North America, where he took part in the American Revolutionary War as a colonel in the Continental Army. An accomplished military architect, he designed and oversaw the construction of state-of-the-art fortifications, including those at West Point, New York.
‘After the release of the Equilar pay study, the AFL-CIO put out its own 2014 Executive Pay Watch, showing U.S. CEOs were paid on average $11.7 million in 2013, compared to the average worker who earned $35,293. CEOs on average were paid 331times that of the average worker, the labor organization said.
In Florida, the average CEO pay was $4.3 million, or 110 times the average workers’ pay of $39,264.’
'The 12-year-old girl said she was molested by Rios about twice a week over the past year, the sheriff's office said. The older girl said Rios touched her about 15 times starting in 2011 and that he told her he was doing so because he loved her as a pastor and that she shouldn't tell anyone because he could get in trouble, the sheriff's office said.
Rios has been the pastor at Casa De Amor (House of Love)church on Windhorst Road.'
Yeah, the name probably should have tipped people off; not the church to send your kids to!
KBC Blueberry Wheat Ale, brewed in Kennebunkport Maine: Well, got this in a sampler pack from World Market and was looking forward to drinking it. I’ve had a few blueberry wheat beers, including a few from Maine (and even here in Florida where blueberry farms are beginning to be the next big thing).
Unfortunately, though I would have liked to recommend this as a beer to search out…no such luck. Of the blueberry beers I’ve had, this was definitely the worst – mostly because there was no discernable blueberry taste to it, and it really wasn’t a very good wheat beer either.
So, it’s a free country (still) and go ahead and try it if you’d like, but don’t say I didn’t warn you!
On the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame Induction Ceremony 2014:
Watched it on HBO last night and a few things stuck in my mind. Glenn Frey inducted Linda Ronstadt, and he’s looking a bit rough. First thing that popped in my mind; “He may be an Eagle, but he looks like a Beagle.”
Got to say, though I don’t listen to country music, Carrie Underwood did an incredible version of Linda Ronstadt’sStone Poneys song ‘Different Drum’ (which I own the 45 of and is the only Linda Ronstadt music I own).
Yusuf Islam, the ex-Cat Stevens did a few songs, seems his voice is the same as it used to be.
Daryl Hall & John Oates – the first song didn’t sound good, but they improved as they sang more…but John Oates sure is short, he could almost be Tyrion Lannister’s stand-in(for you Game of Thrones watchers)! Never realized that before, must be why they stand on different sides of the stage.
Was good to see the original E-Street Band members Vini Lopez & David Sancious playing a few numbers with the current band. Not sure why Patty Scialfa rated into the Hall, she was pretty much a back-up singer until she married the Boss.
Thought Joan Jett (why isn’t she in!!!) did an awesome job on Nirvana’s ‘Teen Spirit’ & St Vincent(Annie Clark) was terrific doing ‘Lithium’ and Lorde did an incredible ‘All Apologies’. Kim Gordon, however, shouldn’t be allowed to sing in public.
And of course Kiss managed to bury the hatchet (in each other’s backs judging by the dagger-eyes being flung back and forth) long enough to accept the awards and not perform. I’ve heard the story behind it, but wonder why the old and new members of the E-Street Band were allowed to play together, but the old & new members of Kiss weren’t.
So, that’s my take, if you saw the show or were there, leave me a comment on your opinion. Rock on!
