One dark secret about fireplace ashes is how long they remain hot and able to ignite other materials. Come back a full day later and the fire appears to be fully extinguished. Move those ashes to a flammable container and there is a very good chance that those ashes, which appear to be very cold, will start up a new fire. Ash buckets and holders are essential fireplace accessories that not only keep your fireplace and hearth area nice and tidy but also make collecting and disposing of ashes safe and easy while allowing you to avoid direct contact with hot ashes and coals. FEMA's U.S. Fire Administration advises that you dispose of fireplace ashes in a metal container and place them far away from your house or any other structure.
As quickly as cities rise up to host the Olympics, they seem to fall even faster. After the final national anthem is played, the only thing left for these epic coliseums is wither and decay. It's an eerie reality. Billions of dollars, thousands of hours of labor, and years later, this is what remains... Athens, Greece 10 years later is probably where Beijing, China 6 years later will be heading soon. No doubt followed by Sochi a mere 6 months later, although let's be fair, that place was an absolute shithole right from the start.

OK- I had to put down Bailey the dog- the one you accused of being gay- 7 years ago because cancer ate him up 2 months ago. Wife got a new "Pound Puppy" that's 3 years old. After spending $170 at the Pound (includes getting her fixed and a terrible grooming job) I paid another $750 for X-rays and all the other diseases the Pierce County Humane Society missed in spite of having her for 9 days with complete care. I don't mind paying $1,000 for a dog but there's a few things I demand a dog do:
1: someone knocks at the door? You'd better bark your fool head off- that's your job of protecting the perimeter.
2: I expect you to be sociable- that is, not spend your whole life behind the couch and only come out when pushed by a broom.
3: I expect you to pee between every 4 to 8 hours and not hold it in for 24 hours at a time.
4: I do expect you to poop at least once a day, preferably while on the same walk as you go pee but I'm flexible on this.
This new dog just isn't working out. Can't say I've ever had a dog that "wouldn't dog"- has to be dragged outside or gently man-handled. I have very reluctantly used a pinch collar- I hate using them but the instant negative feedback SHOULD have provided some kind of motivation. Wrong. The pinch collar just made her lay on the ground and cry. I don't know what to do Ernie- my parents had a pet shop from 1968 to 1982 and I've never had a dog I couldn't "work" but this is beyond my frustration and understanding level. Went to "Pet-Shop" (National Chain) and talked with one of their trainers who's a professional. Said to cut off the "free range" food to motivate the dog by hunger- ok, fair enough. After that, things get a bit murky,,,,, Any ideas? - Larry
Leather pants aside, I'm a firm believer there are no bad dogs, only bad owners. As for the money, yeah I got buttfucked by Bianca in the same way. She came home with a cyst on her side which required $600 in surgery, plus got into two major battles with Ike which resulted in $900 in vet bills. During the era of said battles, there was more than one occasion where The Boss Lady and I weren't entirely sure we were going to be able to provide Bianca with her forever home. In the end, we stuck it out, and I'm immensely thankful we did, because she's turned out to be a terrific animal. It took her a full year to settle in to where I would venture her pendulum swung from "pain in the ass" to "well behaved" but it got there. Now my new neighbors -- the ones that took 45 years to build a house -- constantly marvel that she is one of the most well bahaved pets they've ever seen.
Consider this: you're a dog. You're three years old, so you've already lived one fifth of your life including childhood, adolescence and young adulthood, in one particular home. You were raised a certain way, with certain rules. Then one day that family up and dumps you off at a shelter, where you're driven mad by the incessant cries, howling and barking of those tortured souls around you. You live in constant fear that you too will turn into one of these mad howlers who has been trapped here for months. But then the miracle of all miracles, a man with leather pants shows up and takes you home. You're thankful, but at the same time, still terrified. You do your best to behave like you have for your entire life -- the way you think you're supposed to -- and for some reason that doesn't work. Everything you knew before is wrong. The more you try, the more your new owner is unhappy with you, and the more scared you get. Confused, terrified and certainly depressed, you withdraw and hide behind a couch. And then some asshole with a fucking broom chases you out from behind that.
Consider that while its behavior that you encourage, most people consider their dog going ape shit at the doorbell/door knock to be very bad dog behavior. Your new pooch could very well have been raised this way, and disciplined if they bark their fool head off defending their own perimeter. But here's the catch: this isn't your dog's home. Or at least he doesn't think it is yet. And you're certainly not helping her fit in by pushing her with a broom. I would suspect that if you create a welcoming environment, over time your new dog will come to feel comfortable, feel welcomed, she will realize this is her home and will begin to be protect it as such. The same goes for your second point. You've essentially just purchased a Russian mail order bride. Instead of forcing her to come sit on the couch and get her love on, try to be the person she wants to sit next to. It will take time and will require a lot of
vodka treats, but it will be worth it. As for taking care of business on schedule, it sounds like the dog was crated a lot. That would explain it both being withdrawn and unaffectionate, plus being able to hold its bladder for so long. You can't change the dog's environment overnight, and expect it to change its behavior as quickly.
In short Larry, two months is nowhere even near to being close to the same zip code in the same country as enough time for this dog to adjust to his new life. You can not unplug your old dog, plug in a new dog, and expect her to be exactly like your old dog. All dogs are nto created equal, and you have no idea what baggage this one is carrying with her. I say put the broom down and give the dog a reason to want to come be sociable with you. And throw that fucking pinch collar in the fucking garbage. You're going to win this dog over with old fashioned TLC, not pinch collars, brooms and hunger. Although I will say that I feed my dogs on a twice-a-day-schedule, morning and evening. This too will help regulate their bowel movements since they'll have to take care of business about 30-40 minutes after they eat. Time, bro. It's going to take time. And treats. And ear scratches. But it'll be worth it in the end. No bad dogs, only bad owners. So the real solution is, don't be a bad owner.

Extraordinary pics of the top secret "staging" base for the preparation of the invasion of mainland Japan. Quite an armada; note the carriers on "murderer's row" that, thankfully, were at sea during the attack on Pearl Harbor 3 years earlier. Greg

There are over 4,200 species of mammals on our planet. Mammals are animals that have a backbone, have hair or fur, are warm-blooded and whose females nurse their babies with milk. Each of these milks contains water, proteins, fats, carbohydrates, minerals, vitamins, cellular content and anti-infective agents. But each species of mammal produces a milk that is qualitatively different than the milk of other species, a milk that is perfectly suited for the growth and development of the offspring of that particular species.

NASA's space shuttle fleet began setting records with its first launch on April 12, 1981 and continued to set high marks of achievement and endurance through 30 years of missions. Starting with Columbia and continuing with Challenger, Discovery, Atlantis and Endeavour, the spacecraft has carried people into orbit repeatedly, launched, recovered and repaired satellites, conducted cutting-edge research and built the largest structure in space, the International Space Station. The final space shuttle mission, STS-135, ended July 21, 2011 when Atlantis rolled to a stop at its home port, NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

Barnes & Noble's smart shopper paradise offers three kinds of bargain-priced books: Bargains, Special Values, and Barnes & Noble Exclusives. All three have one thing in common: terrific book value. Bargains, also commonly referred to as remainders, are publishers' overstocks. Bargain books clearly display the original price of the book before it was remaindered, along with your savings. You can find Bargains on virtually any subject and in any format. Because the publisher has decided to stop printing the book, the quantities for all Bargains are limited so when a book is gone, it's gone. So the trick with Bargains Books is to act quickly when you find something you want.
Mangineering is defined as the act of creating or repairing useful items employing the materials at hand. Mostly practiced by men, it is often criticized by those who aren't able to come up with solutions anywhere near as practical. Common mangineering supplies include duct tape, bailing wire, zip ties, and PVC pipe.
Try as I might, I simply can not identity what company uses this monkey for a logo.
In the Top Gun sequence where Maverick "puts on the brakes", he is shown pushing the throttle quadrant forward and pulling the stick back. This would put him into a full-afterburner climb, but you don't really stop and it doesn't work in a medium speed tail chase, which is easier to film. The air brake does effectively nothing on the F-14 because it is too small, and not deployable at full power.
Nah, this is way too tall for Harrah's. My guess that it's Wynn 'cause you can see part of the "Flying Saucer" over Fashion Square Mall at the Rt Bottom of the pic. Thomas
Great Site...blah, blah. Picture is from the Wynn. You can see the surf board looking art in front of the Fashion Show Mall on the bottom right and the Palms in the background. Good Day Sir. Jeff
At time of writing, three of the top six Google search results for “hottest players us open” are lists of the hottest men at the tournament. And honestly, I think that's fantastic. Tennis players are elite physical specimens, and there's nothing wrong with admiring them. That being said, we'll focus on the women, because that's what our demographic seems to enjoy most. So today we present to you our list of the 20 hottest female players at the 2014 US Open.
Here's a blast from the past! "Looking for a 15-inch multimedia monitor that delivers high performance, reliability, and great sound? The Compaq Presario MV540 with detachable monitor-powered JBL speakers is designed to offer crisp sound and the convenience of a digital audio player within a flat-square CRT system. Plus it includes an integrated microphone that incorporates built-in, high-quality voice recognition and easy-to-use onscreen menus for precise control of the digital display. The Presario MV540 has a resolution of 1,024 x 768 at a refresh rate of 60 Hz, and the 0.28-millimeter aperture pitch, provides fine detail."
Ever wonder why racecars perform a burnout prior to starting a race? There are two reasons for this. The first, when you see a car burn out across the line, is to lay a patch of fresh hot, rubber. If done right it adds another layer of better traction to race across, because the launch is the most important part of the race. A driver doesn't want any wheel spin that will slow their performance, and these burn outs help to avoid that. The second reason is to heat the tire -- shown here on a FLIR camera -- to make it better able to stick to the racing surface.
Hey Ernie, Had to get in touch regarding the picture showing Treasure Island, that you thought might have been Hannahs. Sorry, but its the Wynn. The road layout caught me as being wrong, and also the distance as Hannahs seemed far away. SO with a bit of googling I found a Refurbed room at Wynns and found the chair in the reflection. This page shows a couple of shots of the view, which match up. And you will be pleased to know that the chair in the picture is a copy of the 1963 design classic "Oxford" chair by Arne Jacobsen with design house Fritz Hansen. An original will set you back a pretty penny, but these are copies - the base and height adjusting mechanism are wrong. Cheers. Lawrie
From the Czech Republic. Those negative g's have things looking up! I'm surprised they didn't encounter more "turbulence"...Great aerodynamics presentation! I bet you will watch this one the whole way through. Alan
I know what you're thinking, "Where is all the rimfire ammo?" AMIRITE? Well, you're not the only one asking, in fact that guy has some pretty good ideas on what's going on. My local Walmart(s) haven't had shit in stock unless you're willing to camp out at 6:55am when they dump out the stock, and it's even turned to pretty slim pickings online, unless you want to shoot subsonic ina bolt action.
Forty-three year old Lennard Patrick Jervis done got himself a pistol. Lennard Patrick Jervis brought said pistol to a jewelry store. Lennard Patrick Jervis was gonna get his. Lennard Patrick Jervis tried to shoot 89 year old Arthur Lewis. Lennard Patrick Jervis didn't know that Arthur Lewis was a World War II vet. Lennard Patrick Jervis didn't know that Arthur Lewis was exercising his Second Amendment rights. Lennard Patrick Jervis done got shot six times.
A traffic guard, or flagman, is a person who directs traffic through a construction site or other temporary traffic control zone past an area using signs or flags. They are responsible for maintaining the safety and efficiency of traffic, as well as the safety of road workers, while allowing construction, accident recovery or other tasks to proceed. Traffic guard are commonly used to control traffic when two way roads are reduced to one lane, and traffic must alternate in direction. Most traffic guards are seen as construction workers; but in some nations, they dress or perform as security guards and police officers.

As I had mentioned previously, when my niece was down a few weeks ago, I took her shooting for her first time. We started out with a mid-caliber revolver with a single round in the cylinder, this way if the recoil caught her by surprise, she wouldn't be a danger to herself or others around her. We did that a few times until I was confident she could handle the weapon safely, and then we loaded more than one round at a time. A while later we progressed to a semi-automatic pistol with a little more ooomph, we repeated the process, stepping back to one single round until I was again confident she could safely handle a fully loaded weapon. I say this not to toot my own horn, but to highlight the need for an abundance of safety during firearm instruction, especially to new shooters. Whether the student is 9, 19, or 59, the person teaching is 100% responsible for both the student's safety and their actions. Unfortunately, there was a recent instance where caution and safety were replaced stupidity and complacency; both of which kill far easier than firearms.
I would remind you that despite what CNN's Don Lemon says, automatic weapons have been heavily, heavily restricted since 1986. Owning one requires you to pass a six month long colonoscopy courtesy of you local friendly BATFE agent, and a metric shit ton of money since they are exceedingly scarce. One can not just wander onto Slickguns and browse through the fully automatic weapon, in fact if you go to Gunbroker there is currently ONE -- as in a single -- full transferrable automatic weapon for sale. And the opening bid is almost $30,000. Because of this, the only non-military owned automatic weapons are owned either by the police, or by rich folks with too much money. Usually what this means is they're owned by gun ranges who make money by renting them out to fan dumb Americans willing to pay an exorbitant amount of money for a 5 second adrenaline rush. Which is a great business model presuming its done safely, as was obviously not the case in Arizona. It would be like skipping the ride-on-top Tonka truck, skipping the Power Wheels jeep, skipping the training wheels, skipping the bicycle, skipping the go-cart, skipping the Geo Metro in a parking lot, and throwing her the keys to a brand new Corvette Z06 at Nurburgring and saying, "Okay kiddo, have fun." It would be just pure, unadulterated stupidity.
The real loser here is the girl who will most likely grow up thinking she killed the instructor, when in my opinion, he was killed by his own negligence. So hopefully one day when she gets older, she'll be able to understand the difference between physically pulling the trigger, and genuinely being responsible for pulling the trigger. She was essentially an unwilling party thrust into a situation, where through no real fault of her own, bad things were going to happen.
Anyway, on to more important stuff, and today we're going to focus on Treasure Island casino in Las Vegas. I'm pretty sure this photo was taken from The Venetian hotel, looking straight down one of Treasure Island's three legs, directly across the strip. But this second one I'm not so sure of. I suspect it's taken from Harrah's, especially given the heavy tint on the windows.
Evidently yesterday was National Dog day, and I didn't know it. And while this bird knew what was going on, it seems these dogs did not. Honestly, I think it's kind of a dumb idea for the simple reason, every day should be National Dog day. Don't wait until your beloved best friend is down to single digits left on his clock, go out and give him one of those days now, while he's still in the prime of his life and can really enjoy it.

At the second race of the MX5 Cup in Great Britain, driver James Rodgers was trying to pass driver Ben Short on the Hangar Straight at the Silverstone Circuit when Short pulled up next to him and pushes in his left sideview mirror. Some might call it an act of bad sportsmanship, but I think it's just one driver having a bit of fun with another. Either way it's a pretty slick, extremely awesome move.

If you think of a list of the greatest Las Vegas entertainers, the names of Elvis or Sinatra might come to mind, but Las Vegas has also come to be known as a keeper of the flame for the Beatles, the most popular music act in history. Fifty years ago this week, the Beatles played two sold out shows at the Las Vegas Convention Center and helped put Las Vegas on the map for a new generation of music fans. The anniversary is being marked in many ways, and remembered by those who attended the shows.

ThinkPad is a line of laptop computers and tablets by Lenovo. The series was originally designed, developed, and sold by IBM until Lenovo acquired the brand in 2005 after purchasing IBM's personal computer business. ThinkPads are popular with large businesses and schools. Older ThinkPad models are revered by technology enthusiasts, collectors and power users due to their durable design, relatively high resale value, and abundance of aftermarket replacement parts. ThinkPad laptops have been used in space, and was by 2003 the only laptop certified for use on the International Space Station. The ThinkPad X300 used a small form factor Intel GS965 chipset, along with Intel Core 2 Duo L7100 low-voltage CPU. Its successor, the ThinkPad X301 uses the Intel Centrino Mobile, an ultra-low-voltage CPU.
Most of us know the number one billion is big, we just don't know how to think of them in the context of our own lives. If we wanted to pay down a billion dollars of the US debt, paying one dollar a second, it would take 31 years, 259 days, 1 hour, 46 minutes, and 40 seconds. About a billion minutes ago, the Roman Empire was in full swing, since one billion minutes is about 1,900 years. About a billion hours ago, we were living in the Stone Age, as one billion hours is about 114,000 years. About a billion months ago -- or 82 million years -- dinosaurs walked the earth. A billion inches is 15,783 miles, more than halfway around the earth. Now consider all 10 of these people have earned one billion dollars, many of them before their 25th birthday.

There are so many theme parks on this planet that it's practically impossible to count them all. But which ones are the biggest? “Big” is a pretty general word, but in this particular case we're going by attendance numbers rather than landmass or amount of money spent on construction or anything like that. As a result, this isn't a great place to be if you're looking for information on obscure, off-the-beaten-track theme parks. but if you want to see some of the most famous theme parks in the world, then read on.
Sea urchins are small, spiny, globular animals which, with their close kin, such as sand dollars, constitute the class Echinoidea of the echinoderm phylum. About 950 species of echinoids inhabit all oceans from the intertidal to 5000 m deep. The shell, or "test", of sea urchins is round and spiny, and common colors include black and dull shades of green, olive, brown, purple, blue, and red. Sea urchins move slowly, and feed on mostly algae. Sea otters, starfish, wolf eels, triggerfish, and other predators hunt and feed off sea urchins. The name "urchin" is an old name for the round spiny hedgehogs which sea urchins resemble.

Based upon the dimensions given in this aquarium chart, I suspect this is a 60 gallon hexagon aquarium. I know, why the fuck would anyone do that, right? Like what kind of fucked up logic would use to climb inside of a glass box and risk cutting yourself to ribbons.
The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has taken off like wildfire in the last few week or so, raising lots of awareness and $50+ million in donations for the ALS research. More importantly, though, it gives us a lot of videos of hot women dousing themselves in water. So, take a look at these nine videos, which rank as nine of the sexiest on record, starting with Pitch Perfect hottie Brittany Snow, and ending with Anna Kendrick dressed all in white.

You can learn a lot about life by observing another species. That's what Humphrey was told when he was first brought to Room 26. And boy is it true! There are always adventures in the classroom and each weekend he gets to sleep over with a different student, like Lower-Your-Voice-A.J. and Speak-Up Sayeh. Humphrey learns to read, write, shoot rubber bands, and much more. With a lock-that-doesn't-lock and an adventurous spirit, Humphrey's life would be perfect if only the teacher, Mrs. Brisbane, wasn't out to get him? With a fresh voice and an engaging, hamster's-eye view of school, families, and treats to hide in a cheek pouch, Betty G. Birney's book The World According To Humphrey will elicit laughter and a new appreciation for classroom hamsters everywhere.

Like the mythical Greek hero Hercules, the Rottweiler is strong and true with a loving heart. Affectionately called Rotties or Rotts, the breed originated in Germany, where it was used to drive cattle and pull carts for farmers and butchers. That heritage is reflected in the Rottie's broad chest and heavily muscled body. When he moves, he displays strength and stamina, but when you look into his eyes you see warm, dark-brown pools reflecting a mellow, intelligent, alert, and fearless expression. A Rottweiler will play fetch for as long as they're willing to throw a ball, and the pooch'll make you laugh by cramming multiple tennis balls into its mouth.
Somehow I'm oddly comforted to know that my mother wasn't the only person to cut pizza with a pair of scissors.
Chester Bomar Himes was an American writer born in Jefferson City, Missouri, on July 29, 1909. He grew up in a middle-class home in Missouri. Himes attended East High School in Cleveland, Ohio. While he was a freshman at Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio, he was expelled for playing a prank. In late 1928 he was arrested and sentenced to jail and hard labor for 20 to 25 years for armed robbery and sent to Ohio Penitentiary. In prison, he wrote short stories and had them published in national magazines. Himes stated that writing in prison and being published was a way to earn respect from guards and fellow inmates, as well as to avoid violence. In 1960 he wrote Run Man Run, which when translated to German, doesn't come out so well.
Check out this amazing scene as sea lions and pelicans beg and steal fish scraps at the fish market in downtown Puerto Ayora, Santa Cruz Island, Galapagos. The fishmonger you see appearing to choke the pelican was actually saving its life, by making sure it didn't choke to death on the fish head it stole.
