As St. Patrick is Ireland's patron saint, shamrock has been used as a symbol of Ireland since the 18th century, in a similar way to how a rose is used for England, thistle for Scotland and leek for Wales. The shamrock first began to change from a symbol purely associated with St. Patrick, who used it as a metaphor for the Christian Trinity, to an Irish national symbol when it was taken up as an emblem by rival militias, during the turbulent politics of the late eighteenth century.
Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery is a 1997 American action comedy film and the first installment of the Austin Powers series. It was directed by Jay Roach and written by Mike Myers, who also starred as both Austin Powers and the antagonist Dr. Evil., Powers' arch-enemy. The film co-stars Elizabeth Hurley, Robert Wagner, Seth Green and Michael York. The film also includes appearances by Will Ferrell, Mimi Rogers, Carrie Fisher, Tom Arnold, Rob Lowe, Christian Slater, Cheri Oteri, Neil Mullarkey and Burt Bacharach. Austin Powers is a parody of the James Bond films, particularly the earlier features in the franchise, as well as other parody films that also spoof James Bond and other 1960s spy films.
Yeah, you know me. I just love movie factoids and today's pic Terminator 2: Judgement Day. Linda Hamilton's twin sister, Leslie Hamilton Gearren was used as a double in end scenes involving two "Sarah Connors". Linda trained with former Israeli commando Uzi Gal and with personal trainer Anthony Cortes for three hours a day, six days a week for 13 weeks before filming. Under both, she trained intensely with weights and learned judo and heavy military training techniques. She had to maintain a demanding non-fat diet even during filming and lost 12 pounds. Because of this punishing regimen, she declined to reprise her role for "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines." Ironically, her identical twin sister Leslie was only required to "hit the gym" for a few hours a week and the difference is visible in the two scenes they star in together. Given Arnold Schwarzenegger's $15-million salary and his total of 700 words of dialog in Terminator 2, he was paid $21,429 per word. "Hasta la vista, baby" cost $85,716. That famous line was translated to "Sayonara, Baby" in the Spanish version of the film, to preserve the humorous nature. Also, the alternate ending sucked.

On the Run is a flagship convenience store brand developed by ExxonMobil, used at Exxon and Mobil stations in the United States, and at Esso and Mobil stations internationally. Alimentation Couche-Tard acquired the On the Run trademark and franchise network in the U.S. in 2009; ExxonMobil retains full ownership of the brand in the rest of the world. On the Run stores are described as larger and having more products than older-model convenience stores, featuring "fresh snacks, fill-in groceries, health & beauty supplies, plus quick meal options."
Baywatch is an American action drama series about the Los Angeles County Lifeguards who patrol the beaches of Los Angeles County, California, starring David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson. The show was canceled after its first season on NBC, but survived and later became one of the most watched television shows in the world. And Baywatch must still be huge in France, because French magazine Purple has scored none other than Pamela Anderson for a nude pictorial. It appears in the magazine's 21st issue, and it was photographed by Sante D'Orazio.

Ernie, Just saw your acquisition of a Smith and Wesson Model 66-2 with Pachmayr grips. Great gun! That was my first handgun. The Christmas after my mom died my Dad surprised me with it. It was in a Crown Royal bag lol. It had the Pachmayr grips just like that. Almost 20 years later it is still one of my most cherished possessions. Tony
Whenever I go kayaking I generally have two choices. I can throw the kayaks on my truck and drive to a launch, or I can dump them at the mangrove entrance near my house and just paddle out. I've often been reluctant to do the latter because for that entire paddle, you're all by your fucking lonesome. Well sure I mean I kayak with other people -- none of which look like this, unfortunately -- but I mean for that entire 2 mile trip through the mangrove trail, it's just you and Mother Nature. And sometimes down here, Mother Nature has some big fucking teeth. So one of the reasons I was excited about getting my hands on this old 66 -- aside from saving a nice old piece from a horrible fate -- was because it will fill the role of a kayaking gun. I plan on carrying it with 3 rounds of snake shot -- snub nose revolvers are too short for the rat shot so the 4" barrel is perfect -- and 3 rounds of .38 Special JHPs. And yeah, warning shot, motherfucker.
As one of the most enduring symbols for love and appreciation, it's no surprise that roses are among the most admired and evocative of flowers. Having long symbolized beauty and perfection, red roses are the traditional symbol for love and romance, and a time-honored way to say "I love you." As a symbol of grace and elegance, the pink rose is often given as an expression of admiration. Pink roses can also convey appreciation as well as joyfulness. The bright, sunny color of yellow roses evokes a feeling of warmth and happiness. The warm feelings associated with the yellow rose are often akin to those shared with a true friend. White roses represent innocence and purity and are traditionally associated with marriages and new beginnings. As far as which ones you shoudl get? Well, we'll just have to ask
what he thinks.
