The royal French government used many flags, the best known being a blue shield and gold fleur-de-lis -- the Royal Arms of France -- on a white background, or state flag. Early in the French Revolution, the Paris militia, which played a prominent role in the storming of the Bastille, wore a cockade of blue and red, the city's traditional colors. According to Lafayette, white, the "ancient French color", was added to the militia cockade to create a tricolor, or national, cockade. The colors and design of the cockade are the basis of the Tricolor flag, adopted in 1790. The only difference was that the 1790 flag's colors were reversed. The royal white flag was used during the Bourbon restoration from 1815 to 1830; the tricolor was brought back into use after the July Revolution and has been used ever since 1830.
So remember four months ago when this asshole flashed a stolen gun while threatening Donald Trump -- a Secret Service protectee, by the way -- during his homemade rap video? Can someone explain to me why he isn't rotting in jail, instead of out on the streets able to give this interview explaining the reason they don't like Trump is, "we need our food stamps." Enquiring minds want to know. Oh that's right. The DOJ isn't prosecuting firearm crimes anymore, so the White House can push for more gun control on law abiding citizens.
Tarzan's Three Challenges is a British-American adventure film filmed in Metrocolor, and released in 1963. In the movie, Tarzan is summoned to an unnamed Asian country to protect Kashi, the youthful heir to the throne, from his evil uncle Khan. The first set of three challenges are for Tarzan to prove he is worthy to be accepted into Kashi's service. First is an archery contest to test his skill. Then Tarzan must prove his strength by holding onto two buffalo as they are driven apart, and he passes the second test by not letting go of either harness. Third, he is asked to answer a question designed to test his wisdom. I will now pose three challenges to you, to make sure you are worthy of reading EHOWA. First you must prove you are chivalrous by finding this damsel in distress. Then you must prove your incredible eyesight by telling me what this small neon sign reads. And finally, you must prove your ability to navigate by finding this particular entrance.

Does club soda really work on spills? Everyone “knows” club soda is the ultimate remedy for instant stain removal, but is it really all it's cracked up to be? Our 107-year-old professional trade association, the Drycleaning & Laundry Institute (DLI), recently completed an in-depth study of the merits of club soda versus plain old water in stain removal, and as members, we're pleased to share their findings. The short answer is “yes” club soda can be a big help in the short term, but “no” it is not the end-all, be-all stain removal miracle it is made out to be. When applied immediately to ten commonplace food stains DLI tested, both club soda and water removed some to most of the stain. However, neither treatment will completely remove the stains and if left untreated, the remaining stain residues can become permanent over time.
We've all seen the terrible movies on the Sci-Fi channel like Sharknado. They've been around forever, and they used to actually be worse. The funny thing is, some really big stars have come out of these b-rated horror flicks. Who would have though Jennifer Aniston's first big hit would be in a movie about leprechauns? Check out who else caught their first big break in the low budget horror movie genre. Ben Affleck in Buffy the Vampire Slayer?
She's a good Canadian girl and she buys her groceries at Sobeys. I haven't seen her at the one in the Beach in Toronto, but it's not for want of trying. Randy
This is a Canadian chain, big enough to have purchased Safeway Canada a year or two ago. It's called Sobeys. Glen

Curacao is a liqueur flavored with the dried peel of the laraha citrus fruit, grown on the island of Curacao. A non-native plant similar to an orange, the laraha developed from the sweet Valencia orange transplanted by Spanish explorers in 1527. The nutrient-poor soil and arid climate of Curaçao proved unsuitable to Valencia cultivation, resulting in small, bitter fruit of the trees. Although the bitter flesh of the laraha is hardly edible, the peels are aromatic and flavorful, maintaining much of the essence of the Valencia orange. To create the liqueur the laraha peel is dried, bringing out the sweetly fragranced oils. After soaking in a still with alcohol and water for several days, the peel is removed and other spices are added. Curacao is naturally colorless, but is often given artificial coloring, most commonly blue or orange, which confers an exotic appearance to cocktails and other mixed drinks.
