Re: War with Iran?

... I'm willing to bet that Iran's nuclear sites are very well protected and it's going to be damned near impossible for us to hit them. Oh, and Trump is a giant pair of loose lips... Ah, but the question is, what do they believe? Particularly after the most recent strike authorized by what they pr...

Re: War with Iran?

Something tells me that as usual, the media is straining to make it look like they have insight and especially knowledgeable sources into what is really going on. The administration seems more than happy to let the pot boil without letting anyone really know what is going on in the background. I can...

An older friend of mine still insists he is 5'10" and confirms it with saying he just had a checkup. He's 5'8 at best from my vantage point when I stand in front of him.

Two or three days before your dinner, open the canned (not the jellied) whole-berry version and mix in some very finely-shredded orange and lemon zest (for a whole can it might take the zest of two oranges and a whole lemon).
