    I raise a glass to our hero's.
    Wonderful reflection, reminds me of my '66 VW Beetle with a 6 volt battery and always having to park at the top of a hill in winter.

    I'll tell you what Nik. How about I shoot some bullets at your house, through your windows, at your door, when your walking by. I assume you're not going to call the police? It's ok to shoot rockets and not retaliate?

    The problem can only begin to be resolved when all parties involved are willing to compromise. Compromises on the part of Israel have historically led to more conflict. The other side ... compromise doesn't seem part of the radical vocabulary ... so yeah huge attitude changes are needed, on some sides more than others. Until then we have bombs.

    Everybody there is partly responsible.Israelies do what it was done earlier to them. They try to survive. Their situation is not so simple. Around Isreal vast majority of countries (all) is islamic. I know that there are many victims. However, yesterday in Poland was the anniversary of Uprising in Warsaw. Below the link to texrt about it: Then, nobody helped us.
    But coming back to the my main idea: Don`t you think that noobdy blames other islamic countries, their neighbours? Many wealhy people from Kuwejt or Emirates really could help them instead of building towers in the desert. On the other hand, look at the difference between Isrealies and Palestines. Theo only solution is education.

    Nevertheless, the situation in Israel should be changed.

    My favorite band is Queen... they were when I was a teenager, and they'll always be my top band. I saw them in concert during the glory years after The Game was released, and again after Hot Space (their worst album, in my opinion), and many years later sans Freddie Mercury when they hit the road as Queen + Paul Rodgers. I took two of my nieces to that show so they'd have the experience of listening to bloody loud music, and see a real show!
    Good to see they're still alive and kicking.

    There was an American edition and a British edition. And yes it was the Simon Templar character. His creator Leslie Charteris was publishing new and old stories for the magazine and using a blend of new and old fiction form a wide range of writers. If oyu are interested there is a website called Galactic Central that has a HUGE inventory of as many LITERATURE magaznes that published short stories and covers to go with many of them. It's where I got originally my pictures of the Shadow pulp magazine for instance. It's divided by genre and alphabet. Enjoy--I think you'ld like it. You'ld be amazed how far back he goes.

    Oh that must have hurt. My mother has tiny veins (at least that's how one nurse called it) and deep. They aren't visible. They have the hardest times with her. There are some nurses that have the right touch and get it on the first try and others that have to poke around. At times they even give up on my mother mid arm and go for a vein on her hand. There was once a nurse that had to be totally incompetent. She was poking both arms at all sorts of angles and finally I told her to just stop and we got up and complained and they sent someone else over. I've been if you drink water and hydrate before hand it makes the veins expand and easier to draw. I have found that it's better to not tell the nurse they have difficulty drawing blood. It seems to put extra pressure on them. Me, I have no problem. I've got veins sticking out all over. Hope they find you are healthy.

    I love this! Wrote something similar once myself defending my lack of eyesight We get to see things in 20/20 or in glorious mirage. Never mind that I'm wandering through said beautiful mirage like this: haha!

    I've just been thinking. With this whole "diverse" Marvel thing. Marvel have either been incredibly stupid or unbelievably smart.
    Think about it. If they really are stupid enough to think that woman Thor and black Captain America, and the way they've announced it, will be the most amazing thing ever then you have to wonder about the decline of human civilisation as a whole.
    But. It's more likely that they've been incredibly smart. You know how some people say any publicity is good publicity? Or there's no such thing as bad press? Well. Look at the publicity this whole thing has received. People who generally never gave Marvel, Captain America or Thor a second thought, suddenly have it thrust in their faces. The outrage at Marvel's stupidity has blown up and now pretty much everyone knows about it. I'd say it's gone viral. You can't buy publicity like this. And, don't forget they have a new film and a few others in the pipes. This has gotten Marvel's name into pretty much every household. Clever.
