A Mr Stoner caught growing…

420.jpg

Hudson, Florida — Deputies say they have shut down a marijuana grow house, seizing 94 pot plants and arresting the resident, 31-year-old Jason Robert Stoner.
Investigators say he may also be in trouble with the power company, since he tampered with the electric meter to bypass the wiring and run his grow lights.

Romeo becomes internet laughing stock after using cowboy pics to woo colleague

doode.jpg
Doode! Sorry to add to your embarassment, but…

When fitness trainer Peter Sullivan fell for a pretty receptionist, he thought she could not fail to be impressed by the he-man photographs on his personal website.
How wrong he was.
Instead of agreeing to a date, Lucy Holland forwarded his website link to a colleague. And within days it had multiplied in cyberspace, turning 25-year-old Mr Sullivan into an international figure of fun.

Final landing place

SST_RIP.jpg
This is sad -in so many ways:

As a proud and courageous RAF pilot, he served with distinction during the Second World War.
And when the time came for Terry Prendergast to make his final sortie, his family wanted him to go in appropriate style.
So they built a coffin in the shape of his beloved Hawker Hurricane fighter plane – complete with cardboard cockpit, wings, propeller and tailplane.

CNN: Bush Resigns! ……….oops.

bushresigns07.jpg
“CNN International’s CNN Today program, airing at midnight Eastern, led with the graphic ‘Bush Resigns.’ Of course, they meant ‘Blair Resigns.’ Freudian slip on the part of a network accused of anti-Americanism?” Link

Beer Tax Rollback Lobby

beer.jpg
Here’s clip from the article:

The beer industry is lobbying Congress to support its “beer tax rollback” bill (H.R. 1610), which would cut the federal beer tax in half to its 1951 level – a move many public health groups strongly oppose. In the previous (109th) Congress, 208 (out of 539) members of Congress and 13 (out of 100) senators co-sponsored this legislation (then H.R. 1306 and S. 722). To the right is a list of members who are co-sponsoring the “beer tax rollback bill” in the 110th Congress (updated as they sign on), along with a tally of the contributions each has received in the 2005-2006 election cycle from the two biggest beer-industry donors, the NBWA and AB.

Show me the beer-money

Blundering Bush winks at Queen

When you’ve just made it sound like the Queen is more than 200 years old, there may be a few ways of recovering from the gaffe. But turning to her and giving her a sly wink is probably not included in any book of royal etiquette. Link to article

Irish Pub culture is dying…

irelandsmoke.jpg
As a much-loved institution, it’s been imitated around the world, from San Francisco to Sydney, and plenty of places in between. The Irish pub is alive and well.
In Ireland itself, once you have left the cities and headed into the green landscapes and small communities where agriculture is key, it is a different picture. Link
