And shit, I missed Chuck Norris' birthday. Happy belated, Chuck!
Osco Drug and Sav-on Drugs were the names of a pair of chain pharmacies that operated in the United States. Both Osco and Sav-on stores eventually came under the ownership of American Stores, then Albertsons, and finally SuperValu before the stores were sold off. The Osco and Sav-on brands survive today as brandings for in-store pharmacies in the Albertsons chain of stores. Osco pharmacies can be found in Jewel stores, which are co-branded Jewel-Osco, as well as in Shaw's and Star Markets. Sav-on pharmacies are found largely in Acme stores. Albertsons stores, depending on the market, feature either brand. And since Albertsons has been downsizing and selling off many of their properties, it's no wonder this Sav-on located at 4105 West Avenue in Lancaster, California is now a CVS.
I was chatting with a friend about X855 ammo prices yesterday and she was pretty convinced that like the fake .22LR drought that followed Sandy Hook, we're going to see a similar artificial spike on X855 ammo proces for the next year. There's a local shop near me still has the best price so far ($0.40/round), as online prices still haven't trickled back down yet. Now, you might wonder what does anyone need armor-piercing rounds for? Easy, I'll tell you. I'd get these FOUR assholes and lock them in a large empty dumpster. Then every few minutes I'd fire an AP round through at some random place... maybe I hit them, maybe I don't. Either way, tons of fun!
Malvina Reynolds was an American folk/blues singer-songwriter and political activist, best known for her song-writing, particularly the songs "Little Boxes" and "Morningtown Ride." Reynolds was also a noted composer of children's songs, including "Magic Penny" ,a traditional London folk song during the 1940s, which included the lyrics, "Love is something if you give it away, You end up having more. Like a Magic Penny."
Okay, the first of two challenges today, and I wouldn't call this one a softball per se, but I don't think you'll need to be Columbo to figure this one out. If I wanted to have some jewelry designed for The Boss lady, where should I head to?
Hey Ernie, You were close with the Bug Butt. Turns out it's actually Bug Button. You'll probably got lots of replies already but just in case everyone else is late in checking the best internet site there is, here is my contribution. Cheers, and thanks for keeping us up to date on the gun grabs (and of course the work you do with LBEH)! Keep those pictures commin'! Mike
Ernie, It looks like she's standing on St Paul's Square looking toward Bloor St. (160 Bloor St). I couldn't make Street View go down St Paul's Sq to show the exact shot, but the group of vertical cylinders with the beveled tops are the key. Scott [Ernie says: here's the Street View link]
Here's the humdinger challenge, and again, you'll have to pardon me as this is one of those challenges where you're going ot have to track down the full photoset in order to ascertain enough information to track down the location of this waterfront casino. That is, unless of course you recognize the distinective metalwork on top.
Old and busted: signs you grew up in the 90s. The new hotness: actually being in the 90s again. At least television wise.
According to the Farrelly brothers, Jim Carrey was initially offered $700,000 to appear as Lloyd in in Dumb and Dumber. But the offer went in the same week when Ace Ventura: Pet Detective opened at number 1 in the US box office, so by the time Carrey's agents had renegotiated with the film's producers, his salary had upped itself to $7 million, almost half the film's budget. Jeff Daniels wasn't the Farrelly brothers choice to play Harry, but Jim Carrey wanted him in it. In order to ensure a no from Daniels, they offered Daniels $50,000 for the role. He accepted without any hesitation, nor did he make any attempt to negotiate.
The American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) is the largest trade union of public employees in the United States. It represents approximately 1.4 million public sector employees and retirees, including health care workers, corrections officers, sanitation workers, police officers, firefighters, and childcare providers. The AFSCME was the biggest outside spender in the 2010 midterm elections, spending a total of $87.5 million in support of Democratic Party candidates. Founded in Madison, Wisconsin in 1932, AFSCME is part of the AFL-CIO, one of the two main labor federations in the United States.
