You are stronger than you think

Commander McHale still lives!

Here he is today. I always enjoyed Ernest Borgnine in movies and as Cmdr. McHale on TV's "McHale's Navy" (1962-66). In fact, he is likeable actor too, always professional, friendly and gracious. He's turning 91 this week and has an autobiography coming out in August called, "Ernie: An Autobiography." I bet he has all kinds of stories to tell about Hollywood in that bio. I bet he would be fun to talk with. I wish someone would do a good interview with him about his career and experiences in Hollywood for public broadcasting. He is one of the last living greats of the 1950s live TV heydays.

Wedding Bands

Brass, 24k gold plate, white zircon
Wedding Bands are about commitment.

The inherent connotations are a huge part of the piece and, quite often, reveal themselves as a social or sexual comment. The rings are constructed out of brass then plated in 24k gold.

And although the stone is set into the men's ring, when screwed together, the stone actually sits against the woman's finger.

The Boss

A junior manager, a senior manager and their boss are on their way through a park, and they come across a wonder lamp.

They rub the lamp and a ghost appears. The ghost says: "Normally, one is granted three wishes, but as you are three, I will allow one wish each."

So the eager senior manager shouted: "I want the first wish. I want to be in the Bahamas, on a fast boat and have no worries."
Pfufffff .... and he was gone.

Now the junior manager could not keep quiet and shouted: "I want to be in Florida with beautiful girls, plenty of food and cocktails."
Pfufffff .... And he was also gone.

The boss calmly said: "I want these two idiots back in the office after lunch at 12.30 pm."

Family finds maggots in Gerber baby food.
A California mother found maggots in two jars of baby food as she was preparing to feed her infant. It was dinnertime Tuesday night when Tims went to the cupboard for a jar of baby food to feed her 8-month-old daughter, Nyla. That's when, she said, she made a sickening discovery. "I went to pull it out and then I looked at it and I was like, 'What is that?' And I just thought it was a piece of something on there," said Tims. "And I just saw a little squiggle and I was like 'Oh my God. That's a maggot.'" » Full article here

Woman sets boyfriend car on fire, suggests "get some marshmallows"
A woman was arrested over the weekend in connection with a car fire. 51-year-old Gayle Winfrey was apparently angry with her boyfriend, who according to investigators, was more interested in sleeping than in participating in the argument. Lieutenant Moore said Ms. Winfrey decided to set fire to her boyfriend's car, using gasoline and a stick of incense. The details all came out in a confession shortly after the fire. After setting the car on fire, Ms. Winfrey said she went back to her boyfriend, telling him that he "might want to get some marshmallows." When he still showed no interest in getting up, Ms. Winfrey evidently panicked and tried to put the fire out with a small fire extinguisher, but by that time the flames were just too intense. Chattanooga firefighters arrived moments later and quickly put the fire out, but the car was considered a total loss. » Article here

Man's Death Goes Unnoticed in Sydney
SYDNEY, Australia (AP) - A man lay dead in his apartment in Australia's largest city for a year before anyone noticed, officials and news reports said Thursday.
The body of Jorge Chambe, 64, was found on Tuesday in his single bedroom, government-owned flat in the Sydney suburb of Yagoona when police and firefighters broke in, after concerns about his welfare were finally raised.
Decomposition of the body was advanced and bank records indicated Chambe died about a year earlier, officials said.
"It's amazing," Detective-Inspector Ian Prye told reporters. "This guy lives in the suburbs and he dies and no one notices for a year."
In news reports, neighbors at the apartment block described Chambe as a quiet man who was friendly but who kept mostly to himself. He had received federal government welfare payments and his rent was paid automatically by direct debit from his bank account.
His mailbox had filled to overflowing, but no one had noticed a smell or other clues that he had died, the reports said. A worried neighbor finally called housing officials on Monday, and authorities broke in when Chambe did not respond.

World's First Zero Emissions Car

India’s largest automaker is set to start producing the world’s first commercial air-powered vehicle. The Air Car, developed by ex-Formula One engineer Guy Nègre for Luxembourg-based MDI, uses compressed air, as opposed to the gas-and-oxygen explosions of internal-combustion models, to push its engine’s pistons. Some 6000 zero-emissions Air Cars are scheduled to hit Indian streets in August of 2008.

Barring any last-minute design changes on the way to production, the Air Car should be surprisingly practical. The $12,700 CityCAT, one of a handful of planned Air Car models, can hit 68 mph and has a range of 125 miles. It will take only a few minutes for the CityCAT to refuel at gas stations equipped with custom air compressor units; MDI says it should cost around $2 to fill the car’s carbon-fiber tanks with 340 liters of air at 4350 psi. Drivers also will be able to plug into the electrical grid and use the car’s built-in compressor to refill the tanks in about 4 hours. Of course, the Air Car will likely never hit American shores, especially considering its all-glue construction. But that doesn’t mean the major automakers can write it off as a bizarre Indian experiment — MDI has signed deals to bring its design to 12 more countries, including Germany, Israel and South Africa.
