So Ike recently got a little claim to fame. Last week I spent a few hours meandering around social media and looking at a lot of dog rescue stories. Some of which ended up with happy endings, while others not so much. That of course got me to thinking about Ike, and the experience I had adopting him twelve years ago; the long drive down there from Massachusetts, meeting Inge the (German?) woman who ran the shelter, Ike almost killing me before finally getting him called down, and finally the ride home. The latter of part of which was almost like riding inside of a snow globe, because he had massive dandruff caused by a skin infection. Anyway, on a whom I decided to reach out and see if ol Inge was still there, and if she remembered Ike, and if so, just to let her know we made out okay. She was, she did and she was delighted how things turned out for Ike and me. She even put the little monster on their front page.

If yesterday's tie with Portugal has taught us anything it's that we don't care how many fat guys you shove out of the way to get to a cute busty fan, I don't care how many mascots dirty dance with models, Americans are simply never going to give a shit about

Ernie, turns out that the Tiber was a made up name. The real name of that ship is the HMS Chrysanthemum. She was decommissioned in 1988. Jesse
Another sub-$400 gun deal that's too good to pass up: here's a Sig Sauer SP2022 in Field Dark Earth (FDE), chambered in 9mm with two 15 round magazines and night sights, shipped to your FFL for only $399. Keep in mind these things are usually $585. Added bonus: there is a rebate going on right now, where Sig will send you two extra mags plus a range bag -- the 15 round mags sell for $46 each, as does the range bag. So with $125 worth of free shit, the cost of the pistol is $275 -- you're be a fucking idiot to pass this deal up and I can assure you Sir, I'm no idiot.
I've looked through all of Metallica's discography, but still can't identify where this t-shirt is from. A concert, maybe?
Now see, if I found a hidden room in my house like this, I'd be fucking stoked. A small camera to find out who its current occupant is, then clean the nest out (so to speak) and then boom, perfect panic room.
Ernie, Is it me or does this cop seem on the verge of a temper tantrum? I think the guy may have been safer staying in the car and waiting for the real rescuers. Love the site and keep up the good work. Dave in Mesa
A bungee cord is an elastic cord composed of one or more elastic strands forming a core, usually covered in a woven cotton or polypropylene sheath. The sheath does not materially extend elastically, but it is braided with its strands spiraling around the core so that a longitudinal pull causes it to squeeze the core, transmitting the core's elastic compression to the longitudinal extension of the sheath and cord. Today, bungee cords are most often used to secure objects without tying knots and to absorb shock. Inexpensive bungee cords, with coiled metal or plastic hooks on each end, are marketed as a general utility item.
