Yellow Submarine was not a favorite of mine. I listed my favorites from the 60's.

Most people tend to think that cinder does not burn and for the most part they are right.

However, cinder can become blacken and even weak. This is why it is never a good idea
to build on the same foundation in which there was a severe fire previously.

You've seen cracked cinder blocks, haven't you? Cinder blocks will crack and bust and
even some times explode.

I recall way back in the 70's friends of mine married and built a cinder block house. It
was just a square of a house and it was above ground. Walking inside, was the living
room, off to the left was a bedroom and thru the bedroom was a bathroom. Off from
the living room was the kitchen. That was it. There was no inside walls. No wood.
I don't remember the floors but pretty sure it was just a concrete floor. They probably
laid the concrete pad first and then built the blocks on top of it. The point however is,
it would sweat. My friends name was Patty and she would complain all the time about
the place sweating. I suppose the flooring if it was a concrete pad and I am sure it
must have been, probably had a lot to do with the sweat issue. It really got so bad
they couldn't live in it any more and moved into a rented mobile home. I can recall
placing my hand on the walls.....the cinder block, and it feeling cool and damp.

So I would GUESS that cinder contains at least some amount of moisture or retains
some moisture. Just like basements can mildew items without proper ventilation.

I even keep a dehumidifier in my guest house because it has a concrete pad and if
I don't keep it on in the summer, moisture will accumulate and can result in mildew.
There is some windows but it is so hot here in the summer, it's better to keep the
windows closed and run the dehumidifier. I go over from time to time and turn the
air conditioner on for awhile too.

Many people build basement houses and have wood structure on the inside. If
there is a fire, that wood burns which results in damage to the cinder even more
so than if there was no walls. It can also result in cave in because the walls are
a huge aid in holding the cinder blocks in place too. You ever visit an area where
a house that was all brick or cinder burnt up and all that is there is a rubble?

So don't be fooled about that and insurance companies know that cinder is not
a prevention measure. It can be destroyed by fire too, just not in the same way.

Dry cat food, that is. I buy the large bags of Special Kitty Gourmet blend cat food.

It's a very huge problem, no doubt about it.

People won't spend the money to 'fix' their cats from making babies.

If vets would at least offer free neutering for male cats, it would help tremendously.
You know, have a day or two each month set just for that. It would also make for
a good training for vet students to have them do it a few days a month.

I won't ever have another inside cat. I have most my life but when Mr Kitty is gone,
I will no longer have a cat inside. I don't want to fool with the cat litter any more,
cat litter bags, cat litter container, can cat food, etc.

In reality, outside cats are not expensive. An adult cat is really only suppose to be
fed once a day. I feed the 3 outside cats, three times a day. They get the Special
Kitty cat food. It's cheap but it has all the necessary nutrients and they like it. In
the mornings they each get a little pile of the food, in the mid afternoon again they
each get a little pile of food, and then at night around 9 0r 10 pm I feed them again
each a little pile of food. They hunt and get mice and other outdoor critters including
small snakes.

Of course, I am in the country so people that live in a city have it differently. Many
cats in a city get run over and that sort of thing.

You could look for a no kill shelter and drop them off.

I wouldn't call anyone hater simply because they don't like the Beatles or don't like their music.

I am not real fond of their music myself. I am more of a Rolling Stones person.

However, I sure wouldn't say the Beatles are over rated.

When I was about 7 years old, my older sisters birthday, we both received a transistor radio.
It was the year the Beatles came to America for the first time. To say they made a major
impact on America and the world, would be an under statement.

My favorite songs by the Beatles are their first songs. The songs from way back in the 60's.
Some of my favorite songs by the Beatles in the 60's:

Hey Jude
Come Together
All My Loving
Lady Madonna
And I love Her
Love Me Do

All of those are from the 60's and out of those favorites I would have to say that 'Yesterday'
is my absolute favorite.

I don't really regret it but if I had sense I would not have done it and if I had it to do over,
I wouldn't do it. One thing I have always been happy about is the area where I have it.

Yes they can be removed but it does leave scarring.

There is also other things that may be good and may be bad, depending on your way
of thinking.

Identification purposes.

Many years ago I recall, a fellow I went to high school with that was burned in a car.
It wasn't his car and they did not know who he was. Even tho his body was burnt
as bad as a body can be, his tattoo was identifiable which in turn, resulted in identifying
his body.

Well I'll just say the good book says not to do stuff to your body because it is the house, ya know
and you know whom the house was designed by and after.

I know, it's a booger.

When I built my house, I understood the codes incorrectly. I thought I had to have umpteen
outlets in every room. We ran the wiring and I actually was the one to crawl over the rafters
in the attic and run the internet cable down the wall. It was in the summer and hotter than

Kind of funny tho because if I ever need to plug in anything, I don't have to look for an outlet!
There's several on every wall. :mrgreen:

PS. I ran the internet cable down the wall because the den is thick concrete flooring. It was
easier to run it down the wall and then out into the den, than drilling through thick concrete.

Well you may be amazed at what the future holds.

It looks like the day of sewing machines is near the end, in regards to manufacturing.

Now they are using printers to print out clothing. They displayed a sweater that was
printed out, smooth, no seams at all.

So who knows what life will be a few years down the road. I think it would be hard
to imagine what it will be like 500 years from now.

Do you have a favorite Beatle?

For me, it is difficult to choose one.

I think John was very earthy and inspirational. I also think he was probably the best song writer.

Paul had the cuteness quality and was always out front and center.

George.....well, If I had to choose one to marry, it would've been George.

Ringo.....just goofy but of course, ya gotta have drums.

30-odd years later I am still glad I didn't get my skin inked. Tattoos are so commonplace that I feel I have kept my individuality by not having one, and I also know so many people who regret the tattoos they have.

It will be interesting when they go out of fashion again - business will boom in the laser tattoo removal industry.

I'm not so sure it will ever go out of style/fashion.

People have been defacing their bodies since almost the beginning of time.
People have been drawing on their bodies since before Cleopatra. Not just tattoos, ornamental
stuff. Everything from nose piercing to genital piercing to neck rings to those huge things they
put inside their mouths.

To me, it is like 'selfie's'. You ever visit someone's Facebook site and they have photo after photo...
on a daily basis, photo photo photo of themselves? I mean my gosh, I have never in my life realized
how struck people are on themselves. :mrgreen: I've got relatives that do that. I go to their
facebook page and what do I see, selfie's. The thing is, they look exactly the same as they did
ten minutes ago when they posted a selfie.

What I am saying is, there are many people that adorn themselves primarily for attention. Oh
sure, you can say it ain't so but it is in fact so. Flowers grow and seriously why would someone
be so lame to tattoo a flower on their arse......I admit it, it was so dumb of me to do that!

And what about the old days when men would have a scribbled tattoo, nothing colorful, just
stupid stuff like 'MOM' tatted on their arm. :lol:

My father, he had a sexy image of my mother tattooed on his arm and her name 'Barbara'.
Well they weren't married very long so he went his entire life with that sexy figure on his
arm with her name. He remarried and his wife of course and no doubt, got use to seeing
that on his arm.

Why do people put rings in their nose? Do they think it looks pretty? Or is it simply an
attention grabber?

Today they have some very cool tattoos that are NOT permanent. You can put them on and
they last for a long time, even through several showers.

Anyway, I don't know if body art on self is ever going to stop but the good news is, there are
more and more very good but temporary products on the market now.

Yeah, now that I am old and dumb, I really wish I hadn't.

I think all the defacing of the body that people do, is dumb and actually when it gets down to it, ugly.

I have my ears pierced twice. Not a big deal as most women have one or two piercing in their ears.
Of course now a days, many look like a flying pin cushion attacked their ears. Even as rudimentary
as that, I wish I hadn't. Sitting here at this moment, I don't have earrings in my ears. Rarely do
I even wear earrings any more. Like .... 'Ohhhh here I go to Walmart, I better put my earrings in'

So like why have a tattoo? I have to do a summersault in front of a mirror backwards to even see
my tattoo. What was I thinking? I wasn't thinking. I didn't feel a thing. That was back in the old
Acapulco Gold days. :oops:

Way back when I was young and dumb, I went to a big biker party. My friends talked me into
getting a tattoo on my butt. I had it put on the upper area, it kind of goes down the small of
my back to the upper area of my butt. It's flowers.

I can't even see it. :lol:

I think it's a good thing I can't see it. Like I told my friend at the time, (she had her's put
on one breast) she could watch it droop and wilt as she ages. I have no idea where she is
now but I just betcha, she hasn't forgot me saying that every time she looks at it. :lol:

Well there is lots of insurance companies. Hopefully you will locate one that has some sense.

State Farm is a good insurance company. I just know due to my ignorance at the time, I could
have had what my policy stated since no changes were ever made to it. For the most part, I
was satisfied with them.

Also, Farm Bureau is a good insurance company that I always felt was reasonable. I had them
for many many years and never had any issues. At the time there wasn't one local by me and
I chose the State Farm.

I'm really not familiar with the small time insurance companies. I suppose most of them are
tied into the big insurance agents some way.

I remember the adjuster for State Farm one day talking about disasters such as Katrina. He
said all the big insurance companies have to take the brunt on that. In other words, one big
insurance company could go under in times of that kind of a disaster and so they have to all
pay into it.

It's not nice to intimidate the moderators. WATCH OUT!

Well there was that time when I was pole dancing at the ClixSense bar and grill
when Marcel drove right through the doors and parked his motorcycle at the bar.
He said 'My bike goes where I go!'.

About that time tasman1 came riding in on a Wallaby and he said, 'My Wallaby
goes where I go!".

Shortly after that TiagoLemaire walked in and swaggered up to the bar. When
the bar tender ask him what he will have, he said 'I'll take a Queen of England
and make it a double!'.

While all that activity was going on, there was a guy sitting at a table in a corner
and he kept saying over and over and over again 'My name is Asish07 and I am
an exotic male Indian dancer!' while looking at a woman name lytt. She kept
replying, I am not Jamie Lee, I am not Jamie Lee, I am not Jamie Lee.

When the clock struck midnight DONG BONG DONG BONG DONG DING DING....
a woman name TasMail said 'FREE DRINKS FOR EVERYONE!'.

Fun was had by all. :roll:

Well you know what Billy, I don't mean to come off sounding sarcastic or lame but....IF you
don't have time to do any offers here and you don't have time to complete the checklist,
and you simply don't have the time, then what is it you expect?

I sure wish the Time Fairy would hit me with her magic wand because I could use some
more time too.

Actually, I prefer the Time Machine so I could go back about 40 years......GAWD!!!!
Wouldn't I be the famous and wealthy one. As soon as Google started up, I could
give them great suggestions and also buy as much stock as I could while it is low.
Oh and Bill Gates and I would be best buds. :lol:
