buc, All kinds of things are a factor in cruise missles going off target: Avionic/controls Nav inputs Engine failure Programming error Launch mechanics Electronic anomalies Also, I don't know if the Russian missles are operator controlled or autopilot via proramming and navigation control. Just to name a few. My money in on programming and launch glitches since 4 of them seem to have landed short or failed short.
Actually, the biggest news for Brits in Frau's 3:15 was the side bar about Jürgen Klopp leaving for Liverpool where he has negotiated a deal where he makes final decision on trasnfers. Big deal in English soccer. Liverpool is owned by Americans.
The Ace Lyons piece buc linked to at 3:25 reminds me of this nugget from The Dowtown 5-0-5 Club in Clearwater: Russia News: Russian warplanes continue to bomb U.S.-backed rebels in Syria, as Iran’s special Kudz forces sped across Iraq to join the Russians in Syria. In a related story, if President Obama loses one more country in the Middle East he will tie the record set by the Ottoman Empire in 1917.
Fricaadel is Belgian meatloaf. Pretty much prominent in all Germanic language countries. Loaf or meatballs. Mrs. JiB uses her mother's recipe of 50-50 veal and ground beef. I make mine with ground turkey. Some add an egg and some use bread crumbs I like the South Beach method of shredded zuchinni. Unless I missed it, I am surprised no one has suggested Palin for speaker. Think of all the heads that will explode then:)
I do not believe in coincidences. 1st you get a loner, out of the blue, decide to go and shoot up "Christians" at the same community college one of the Thalys train heroes attends and then within a week, another of the train heroes is knife on a street corner in Sacremento? Even an actuary doesn't have an algorithmn for that one.
For rse and all other parents with college age kids:) "For starters, when did finding a college turn into a modern version of the 18th century Grand Tour?" phony baloney...
That Harry Reid lawsuit if phony baloney IMO. Only $50K for a blinded eye and broken ribs? The equipment company gladly pays out to avoid anymore publicity and Harry gets to continue his charade that it was the equipment instead of his dysfunctiojnal brother. I wouldn't even put it past Harry to have laundered the $50K they will be paying him.
Cubbirs up 1 already.
...above... Time for the game. Bye.
daddy, You doin't want to know about the Green smoothie. All of the abobe plus more.
For my friend OL:) Charlie Smith is on his deathbed and knows the end is near. His nurse, his wife Sarah, his daughter Sybil and 2 sons, Bernie and Jamie, are with him. He asks for 2 witnesses to be present and a camcorder be in place to record his last wishes, and when all is ready he begins to speak: My son, "Bernie, I want you to take the Mayfair houses." "My daughter "Sybil, you take the apartments over in the east end." " My son, "Jamie, I want you to take the offices over in the City Centre." "Sarah, my dear wife, please take all the residential buildings on the banks of the river." The nurse and witnesses are blown away as they did not realize his extensive holdings, and as Doug slips away, the nurse says, "Mrs. Smith, your husband must have been such a hard-working man to have accumulated all this property". Sarah replies, "Property ? ... the asshole has a paper route!"

You should see what my 89 y.o. FIL has to go through in Belgium to seperate his trash. He h as 7 different bin or trash cans he has to use. 1. Paper 2. Cans and Plastic 3. Bottles and glass 4. Food stuff like leftovers, peels, skins, etc. 5. Regular trash not in the above 6. Large wood or metal objects like pots or pans or utensils 7. Yard waste like leaves, grass, limbus,etc. Each day is a different pickup and you need a special stick on label you pick up at the local council offices to affix to the containers. They actually inspect the stuff at the source to make sure you are not cheating. Talk about broken windows economy. Coming soon to a neighborhood near you if the progs and watermelon party will have it.

OL, I didn't realize that the Jags looked like the Skins as much as the do except fo the W-L record. Good point. Also, I guess the experts were right about Arizona. They can't win against good teams.
Deb, You will enjoy this article in our weekend WSJ about The Magnificent Seven. Very interesting its chronology and history of popularity. Just google the link.
OL, Read both. My interest was as a kid I lived in St. John's Newfoundland where dad was stationed. The Marconi book is one of kind in my estimation.
Sorry. The link.
Of course, he couldn't at the time since he was 31 y.o. Senator who just lost his wife and daughter. Read it for all the nostalgia of another know-nothing who really believes he knows everything. Most journalists I talked with agreed that Joe Biden would run for President some day. One said, “There isn’t a Senator alive who doesn’t secretly believe he should be enthroned next to that little red phone in the Oval office, and Bien is no exception. But I think he might win someday.” A wire service reporter sizes up Biden’s chances as “better than 60-40.” He added, Can you imagine what they’ll be when he’s old enough to run and people know who he is?”
BTW, That kicker for KC who went 7 for 7 today is a Brazilian kid who went to St. Joseph's Academy in St. Augustine where Frederick will be going to HS. I was there his senior year when he kicked a 51 yarder and then a 55 yarder. He has a leg. Ended up at Tulane on a full-ride scholarship.
Great Butler & Nephew 2003 port on sale at last bottle. Ordered 3.
I sure do hope its the Jags that go to London for their team. They are useless as a team and organization. A 40 y.o. QB and close to that kicker just killed them when they had 2 chances to win on the leg of a newbie who sacrificed Josh Scooby, one of the sure foots in football. This is what happens to a team who has a silly owner, bad management and a class C coach. Did I mention the mediocre talent?
Hail to the Redskins, Hail Victory, Braves on the Warpath Fight for Old DC.
So? The largest human initiated mass murder events in US history have been fires, explosions, ramming large buildings with planes. I think it was in Michigan in the 20's or 30's some guy rigged a school with explosives and killed close to 60 people. But we continue to build schools, used TNT, make matches, fly planes and build skyscrapers higher than the previous ones (albeit having a hard time renting the upper floors).
peter, My dad went to Colgate and our best friend in Southampton is a Hamilton grad. Both are great schools and smart kids can seperate the good fromm the suspect in all fields of study. Also, you may want to look into my uncles Alma Mater, Union. Two great engineering schools upstate are Clarkson and RPI. Clarkson was at one time a big time college hockey program. Another is Alfred - used to be known for its forestry program.
