How Well Can You Identify Dog Breeds?

9 question quiz, kinda tuff.....


I surprised myself and got them all.

Think about adding white pepper to your home first aid kit.

We have white pepper around because of some Chinese cooking recipes.
and I had heard it "cauterizes wounds, with no stinging or pain."

Had a chance to find out this am with a knife cut in the kitchen, so rubbed some white pepper into the area, and damned if it did not stop bleeding instantly.
Which is remarkable, cause I take aspirin dally and tend to bleed for a bit even thru a pressed on gauze.

Actually, the article had used the term "powder" ...white pepper powder....but our jar is of very fine pepper, and it worked.

Here's a gif for y'all.

Need suggestions for a good, fairly private email service

My ISP sucks, and frequently returns any multiple addressed mails, more and more often lately.

I use gmail for stuff that does not matter, but do not want to put friends and family email addresses into the Google maw....same with Yahoo and similar.
Willing to pay for one, at this point, if it is truly private.

Any good solutions?????

Some thoughts on getting older.............

This is one old time cold remedy I want!!!!

Did you get it right away????? ( took me a minute)

Had this problem just the other day............

Well, hell, THIS explains everything.

It’s Official — the First Democratic Convention Just Abolished Superdelegates!!!!!!

An amendment to eliminate the influence of superdelegates just passed overwhelmingly at the Maine Democratic Party’s statewide convention.

The adoption of the amendment means that Maine’s superdelegate votes will now be allocated proportionally according to the overall popular vote, rather than each superdelegate having complete autonomy. Currently, three of Maine’s five superdelegates are supporting Hillary Clinton, with one supporting Bernie Sanders and one who remains uncommitted to either candidate. Under the new rules, Sanders, who won the Maine caucus with 64 percent of the vote, would have three superdelegates to Clinton’s two.

Another component of the amendment is that the Maine Democratic Party will now petition its Democratic National Committee members to move to get rid of the superdelegate system altogether, at the national level. The amendment is nonbinding for the 2016 election, but will take full effect in the 2020 election and every election thereafter.
