Mustard doesn't belong on a hot dog 

Mrs Walter would call the blasphemy! :lol:

I put a strip of mustard on one side of the bun and a strip of ketchup on the other.  Hamburger, no way!

I haven't seen Aerosmith in years, but they are going to do a free concert in Phoenix April 2nd. Free, that has my name written all over it!! They have some good classic rock songs. And if anyone on this board who lives in the area (and still goes to concerts. Yes, you!) wants to meet up at the concert PM me.  http://www.phoenixnewtimes.com/music/chainsmokers-macklemore-and-aerosmith-to-play-march-madness-music-festival-at-hance-park-9149509

I could never get into Aerosmith, not sure why, they seem to have a lot of good elements. Sometimes I can't tell if they're trying to be the Stones or Zeppelin. Then they went all glammy/big hair. Should be a good Phoenix show.

I give Aerosmith a lot of credit for still being able to put on a great show and for being able to keep the original line-up after all these years (despite the little hiccup they had in the early '80's).

Aerosmith are so-so for me. Some great tracks. More average ones. And a few that are rubbish. I have quite a few of their cd albums. Some are just gathering dust tbh.

LOVED Aerosmith's early stuff.  I haven't bought anything after "Draw the Line".

There has NEVER been anyone in the White House at any time who has created such an army of staffers whose sole duties are the facilitation of the First Lady's social life. 
             

This does not include:

"Makeup artist"   Ingrid Grimes-Miles, 49,

"First Hairstylist"   Johnny Wright, 31,

Both of whom travelled aboard Air Force One on ALL Trips, Europe included.


As of 11/15/2015 the Obama Family has spent over $1,300,000,000 (one billion, three hundred million dollars) on personal family trips. They were personal, not political or Government related.

How things have changed! If you're one of the tens of millions of Americans facing certain destitution, earning less than subsistence wages stocking the shelves at WalMart or serving up McDonald cheeseburgers, prepare to scream and then come to realize that the benefit package for these servants of "Ms. Michelle" are the same as members of the national security and defense departments and the bill for these assorted lackeys is paid by YOU.

Yes…… The Canadian Free Press had to publish this, perhaps because America no longer has a free press and the USA media is afraid that they might be considered racist.

Saturday and Sunday for me. Of course for all the Sport. Sunday night, I am free from all the family. And i visit my friends and use the sunbed. Feels like pure heaven. Worst day is on the whole, Wednesday or Thursday. Some Wednesdays are good because of football. I do not mind Mondays. I am refreshed then.

Mine too! I feel for you. I got off work around 5 hours ago, at 7 PM. You must be wondering why on earth the day can't go any faster, right?

I enjoy Friday and Saturday, the most. I am free to do whatever I want, a lot of the time (I've had to work on some Saturdays and even Sundays! Sheesh!). I can spend time with family, read a good book, watch a great game on TV (be it Cricket or Soccer), spend time alone (away from all the craziness during the week), listen to music, sleep-in, etc. Sunday is when my excitement dies down, a bit. Mondays are OK. By the time Thursday rolls around, I think "Wow! The week just goes on and on and on!".

I've never heard Scott Pelley and the gang report on this.  (At this very moment others are digging up Republican spending. That's fine. They're all pigs at the trough).
 
Some folks are born silver spoon in hand
Lord, don't they help themselves, oh
But when the taxman comes to the door
Lord, the house looks like a rummage sale, yes
It ain't me, it ain't me, I ain't no millionaire's son, no
It ain't me, it ain't me; I ain't no fortunate one, no

Goodbye One Hour of 2017. Yep...it's time to Spring Forward and turn your clocks one-hour ahead. That is, if you live in the U.S. and other countries that have Daylight Savings Time.

Time to "spring ahead" apparently, as it's now 5:30 instead of 4:30. These time switches can be a pain sometimes...

If we are going to discuss controversial topics, can we not do so in a civil manner? No more personal insults, no more degradation, no more belittling. In fact, I suggest a simple point, counter point in relation to these topics. If you feel the need to insult, edit your response before posting, or simply don't post. I myself have been guilty of this and make this pledge to adhere to the Oxford Debating Team charter. If anyone insults, demeans, or degrades another or another's viewpoint, they have automatically lost both the debate on that subject, and any credibility.

How does that sound? What do you al think?

It's always the shit bags who complain the loudest that things stink. Apollo Creed said it best when he said, "Don't be a stinker, be a thinker".

They really think their way is the way  so often.
