This is a dog of all dogs. I have only met up with one Wolfhound, once in my life and thought my God!
Have a wonderful day.:)
Alize was originally made for women 45-55 years of age but stood for 8 years without many customers.
I guess they did not advertise it. No one knew about it .Its a cognac liqueur, based on fruit and jam.
It took rapper 2pak (TUPAC SHAKUR) to turn it into something special.
He came out with a video called
Now here is a drink thugs drink today.
2 oz of Alize
2 oz of champagne preferably, Cristal made by Louis Roederer
Alize was sold for 25.00 a bottle
Cristal, 350.00 a bottle.
Now would a discount apply here? lol
Even with 10%, I think I'll pass. lol
Unfortunately for Tupac, he will not be here to enjoy it, but his death, made Alize a very popular alcoholic beverage to drink today.
Tupac closed the generation gap between the young as well as the older and more mature element, at social gatherings.
Quebec it seems, just closed it more by making the official drinking age, 14 years of age. They kids cannot buy booze however and parents cannot buy it for them to drink, but if they want a little swig or two , I suppose they can find their way to the liquor cabinet. lol
The free thinkers believe we should allow people to do drugs and alcohol . I can only presume it is only to promote chaos and to establish dictatorship, ending democracy and freedom.
This is what happened in China when opium was popular.
Is it a plan to save or enslave the world one day?
President Obama made a wonderful speech in England about two things, which unite us all. Dignity and freedom. Seems the man is Kenyan, Irish, Indonesian and who knows, maybe even Russian. He just has a problem proving he is American, which would then make him close to a citizen of the world. lol
But like everything else in the world, it takes more than words to achieve citizenship, let alone, dignity and freedom.
These are things you are supposed to be born with, not things you need to obtain.
These are things you are, that walk with you, from the day you are born as an individual.
A person is not a number.
As a number, a person does not exist .
Freedom also has its' limits, for the better good.
So Here's a toast to Tupac, for his good taste , and for closing the generation gap, to hopefully do more chatting than drinking.
AND HERE'S TO THE QUEEN OF ENGLAND.
An over-the-hill new to-the-gym, workout wannabe, spied himself a sweet young thing over on the elliptical.
Easing over to a strapping male trainer he slyly asked, “what machine do you think I should use to impress that little cutie?”
The trainer looked him up and down and drawled.. "I’d try the ATM in the lobby"
I guess whether they are cowboys or not , Men will always be Men. lol

Cure # 1: Water prevents and cures heartburn.
Heartburn is a signal of water shortage in the upper part of the gastrointestinal tract. It is a major thirst signal of the human body. The use of antacids or tablet medications in the treatment of this pain does not correct dehydration, and the body continues to suffer as a result of its water shortage.
Tragedy: Not recognizing heartburn as a sign of dehydration and treating it with antacids and pill medications will, in time, produce inflammation of the stomach and duodenum, hiatal hernia, ulceration, and eventually cancers in the gastrointestinal tract, including the liver and pancreas.
Rheumatoid joint pain - arthritis - is a signal of water shortage in the painful joint. It can affect the young as well as the old. The use of pain-killers does not cure the problem, but exposes the person to further damage from pain medications. Intake of water and small amounts of salt will cure this problem.
Low back pain and ankylosing arthritis of the spine are signs of water shortage in the spinal column and discs - the water cushions that support the weight of the body. These conditions should be treated with increased water intake - not a commercial treatment, but a very effective one.
Tragedy: Not recognizing arthritis and low back pain as signs of dehydration in the joint cavities and treating them with pain-killers, manipulation, acupuncture, and eventually surgery will, in time, produce osteoarthritis when the cartilage cells in the joints have eventually all died. It will produce deformity of the spine. It will produce crippling deformities of the limbs. Pain medications have their own life-threatening complications.
Heart pain - angina - is a sign of water shortage in the heart/lung axis. It should be treated with increased water intake until the patient is free of pain and independent of medications. Medical supervision is prudent. However, increased water intake is angina's cure.
Migraine headache is a sign of water need by the brain and the eyes. It will totally clear up if dehydration is prevented from establishing in the body. The type of dehydration that causes migraine might eventually cause inflammation of the back of the eye and possibly loss of eye sight.
Colitis pain is a signal of water shortage in the large gut. It is associated with constipation because the large intestine constricts to squeeze the last drop of water from the excrements - thus the lack of water lubrication.
Tragedy: Not recognizing colitis pain as a sign of dehydration will cause persistent constipation. Later in life, it will cause fecal impacting: it can cause diverticulitis, hemorrhoids and polyps, and appreciably increases the possibility of developing cancer of the colon and rectum.
Asthma, which also affects 14 million children and kills several thousand of them every year, is a complication of dehydration in the body. It is caused by the drought management programs of the body. In asthma free passage of air is obstructed so that water does not leave the body in the form of vapor - the winter steam. Increased water intake will prevent asthma attacks. Asthmatics need also to take more salt to break the mucus plugs in the lungs that obstruct the free flow of air in and out of the air sacs.
Tragedy: Not recognizing asthma as the indicator of dehydration in the body of a growing child not only will sentence many thousands of children to die every year, but will permit irreversible genetic damage to establish in the remaining 14 million asthmatic children.
Hypertension is a state of adaptation of the body to a generalized drought, when there is not enough water to fill all the blood vessels that diffuse water into vital cells. As part of the mechanism of reverse osmosis, when water from the blood serum is filtered and injected into important cells through minute holes in their membranes, extra pressure is needed for the "injection process." Just as we inject I.V. "water" in hospitals, so the body injects water into tens of trillions of cells all at the same time. Water and some salt intake will bring blood pressure back to normal!
Tragedy: Not recognizing hypertension as one of the major indicators of dehydration in the human body, and treating it with diuretics that further dehydrate the body will, in time, cause blockage by cholesterol of the heart arteries and the arteries that go to the brain. It will cause heart attacks and small or massive strokes that paralyze. It will eventually cause kidney disease. It will cause brain damage and neurological disorders, such as Alzheimer's disease.
Adult-onset diabetes is another adaptive state to severe dehydration of the human body. To have adequate water in circulation and for the brain's priority water needs, the release of insulin is inhibited to prevent insulin from pushing water into all body cells. In diabetes, only some cells get survival rations of water. Water and some salt will reverse adult-onset diabetes in its early stages.
Tragedy: Not recognizing adult-onset diabetes as a complication of dehydration will, in time, cause massive damage to the blood vessels all over the body. It will cause eventual loss of the toes, feet and legs from gangrene. It will cause eye damage, even blindness.
High cholesterol levels are an indicator of early drought management by the body. Cholesterol is a clay-like material that is poured in the gaps of some cell membranes to safeguard them against losing their vital water content to the osmotically more powerful blood circulating in their vicinity. Cholesterol, apart from being used to manufacture nerve cell membranes and hormones, is also used as a "shield" against water taxation of other vital cells that would normally exchange water through their cell membranes.
These conditions are caused by prolonged chronic dehydration. They will clear up once the body becomes well and regularly hydrated. In these conditions, exercising one's muscles should be part of the treatment program.

Our school is a good school,
He laughed when they said it couldn't be done,
Poor old teacher, we missed you so,
There was a young caretaker named Frank,
When things get twisted and out of joint,
The joke you just told isn't funny one bit,
Mary had a little bear,
Don't worry if your job is small,
There was a young teacher of Rheims,
I wish I was a little grub,
The day is sunny and we are waiting for the Hockey game to begin between the Vancouver Canucks and San Jose.
It should be a treat as the Vancouver team is said to be very focused.
It is going to be a long week end here in Canada and the college kids are heading up on to Whistler to partee.
Mama and Papa will also partee at home alone for their anniversary. We are slowly becoming a single couple again.lol
Saturday, according to one priest, is supposed to be judgement day. Its just a matter of days before we see what all this is about.
Seems to me the end of the world has been predicted every generation and still the world is carrying on as if it doesn't know anything. It just continues on its' path doing what it always does, ebbs and flows, freezes and melts, rains and shines.
The rest of life has to deal with the consequences of the planets behavior.
Lately it has been naughty. Is it learning from life to live?
To make it exciting for people?
Well at least we are busy trying to clean up our lives so less time is spent on dirtying it. lol
Trying to see the bright side of it.
Matitiyahu (Matthew) 13:24-30 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field: 25 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way. 26 But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. 27 So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares? 28 He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up? 29 But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. 30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.
Since man is born knowing both good and evil, anything can be expected of him.
After having dug to a depth of 10 feet last year, British scientists found traces of copper wire dating back 200 years and came to the conclusion that their ancestors already had a telephone network more than 150 years ago.
Not to be outdone by the Brit's, in the weeks that followed, an American archaeologist dug to a depth of 20 feet, and shortly after, a story was published in the New York Times:
"American archaeologists, finding traces of 250-year-old copper wire, have concluded that theirancestors already had an advanced high-tech communications network 50 years earlier than the British".
One week later, Canadian Dept. of Mines and Resources in Newfoundland reported the following:
"After digging as deep as 30 feet in NE Canada, Jack Lucknow, a self-taught archaeologist, reported that he found absolutely bugger all. Jack has therefore concluded that 250 years ago, Canada had already gone wireless."
Just makes one proud to be Canadian, doesn't it?
more redneck humor
