I was a bit disturbed in the insurance place when i was aksed to value my jewellery and furs. Even more worrying was being asked the value of the firearms i own. Hopefully i wont have to find out how difficult it is to actually claim stuff back from this place. In case you're curious here are some statistics on where I live.

I also took a pic of the folks trying to get you to pledge their sorority. It'll cost you $20 to find out about them, then $200-400 if they let you join, but then they'll be your friends (unless you miss too many meetings in which case you'll get chucked out).
Bleugh "US rock group The Dave Matthews Band have been accused of dumping human waste from a bus into a river, dousing a tour boat filled with passengers. The state claims up to 800lb (360kg) of liquid human waste was released from the bus."

Ah, an hour of beck to listen to again on Radio 2.
August 20, 2004
I wondered what this was all about. They're sponsoring some do the radio's been talking about and saying they campaign to change a law but not which one. and this is what its all about....
North Carolina is one of only FIVE states to limit alcohol by volume (ABV) for beer to under 6%.
Following North Carolina's repeal of Prohibition in 1935, powerful mill owners within the state pressured state legislators to impose an alcohol by volume (ABV) cap on beer. Why? Mill owners were concerned that workers would fail to report to work on Mondays.
Now's the time to get involved and make a difference.
We at Pop The Cap want to do more than tell you what's going on...we want you to become a Pop the Cap advocate. Sign up for the Pop The Cap News to learn how things are developing - and how you can help bring all the world's beer styles to North Carolina.

Vicki Fowler is to leave the show at the end of the year. Things seemed to have gone downhill on the couple i saw in July. How can they loose this raw talent though with her amazing acent skills. I keep forgetting to tell the folks over here about how a trip round Europe lost her 18 years of Americaness.
"Executive producer Louise Berridge recently admitted that some storylines featuring the show's Ferreira family were "not our finest hour". But in its fightback against rival soaps Coronation Street and Emmerdale, EastEnders will introduce a new family in September to whip up conflict."

This stuff was quite nice, even though they never replied when liz sent them pics of the ferrets drinking it, which was just rude. I saw you can order online but they only deliver to the UK.
A report was commissioned by the government to see if the BBC had stuck to its original remit and to look at its impact on the commercial sector. They reckoned that some of the BBC's sites were not distinctive enough from commercial alternatives or could not be justified as public services according to the remit.
In response to this, the BBC's director of New Media and Technology, Ashley Highfield, said the following five BBC websites would now close:
The What's On events listings site
The Games portal
The Surfing portal
The Pure Soap site
He said their closure was based on "the grounds that their market impact might be greater than their public value".
However, he added: "Importantly, he (Mr Graf) also says it cannot be proven that our online services have had a negative impact on the market and that it's unlikely that bbc.co.uk has eliminated effective competition across any large areas of online content."
"It should continue to provide fair, independent (national and local) news and current affairs coverage," he wrote.

Looks like it'll be a very wet weekend.

I quite liked this stupid show too. They were showing a marathon of it yesterday and i think i saw 3 or 4 hours of it. all very exciting. A bunch of peopel (4400) disapeared then all come back at once in a big flash of light. but why???
My second favourite soap character (after Clive the lovely Doctor off neighbours of course) was the lovely Vinnie from Home and Away. Its was a travesty him going down for his Dad's dodgy dealing, and then getting killed saving a prison guard in a riot. Tragic.
I thought I recognised him in a daft new show set in California with a bunch of cool 30 somethings suddenly inheriting a bunch of kids to bring up. I seem to have seen quite a few episodes of this. How disturbing.
