If their hair gets that long then they should pluck it out for replacement guitar string material. At least for their acoustic sessions anyway. :-)

Such a fucking double standard for killing life!

On the one hand when a human willfully invades another human's space and then attacks or kills that human, the attacker might be jailed. Then kept jailed for a very long time before "euthanizing" that attacker. Exhausting every means and excuse before doing so in order to keep from "euthanizing" that attacker.

On the one hand when an animal has their home invaded by a human and then defends their home by attacking or killing that invading human, that animal will be "euthanized" without delay, and without considering the reason for the attack or alternatives to "euthanizing" that animal.

Unless of course it is a pet. Those bitey bitches are given a pass for some reason.

Metal manufacturer plaque reads: "GEMINI 133P. TRAINER ASSEMBLY ATTITUDE & MANEUVER CONTROL SYSTEM. PANEL 3 OF 5. CONTRACTOR MCDONNELL. ST. LOUIS MISSOURI. MANUFACTURED BY BURTEK INC. TULSA OKLAHOMA. MFG. DATE MO. 2 YR. 1963. CONTRACT NO. NAS9-170. PART NO. 52E095005-1. SERIAL NO. 1. POWER REQ'TS VOLTS 115. AMPS 7. WEIGHT 600. MFG. INSP [STAMP]. CONTR. INSP. GOV'T INSP. [STAMP]. U.S. PROPERTY." Panel with highly detailed and complicated back-lit flow diagrams showing the movement of fuel, oxidizer, and pressurant through the Orbit Attitude and Maneuvering System (OAMS). This panel still fully operational. A video of it being operated can be viewed online here. The additional panels are presumed to need some minor electrical work to be brought up to operational condition.

A remarkable system used to train the Gemini astronauts at the Manned Spacecraft Center in Houston. Essentially a duplicate of the display panels and instruments found inside the Gemini spacecraft, the system was used to learn the Attitude control and Maneuver Electronics System (ACME), the Orbit Attitude Maneuvering System (OAMS), the Time Reference System, the Sequential Circuits, the Landing & Post landing Procedures, use & control of the Power Source, amongst many other skills.

The ACME provided the control circuity to attain and maintain a desired spacecraft velocity or attitude, and included four separate sub-systems; the Attitude Control Electronics (ACE), the Orbit Attitude and Maneuver Electronics (OAME), a Power Inverter, and two identical Rate Gyro Packages. The OAMS controlled the spacecraft attitude and provided maneuver capability from the time of launch vehicle separation until the initiation of the retrograde phase of the mission. The OAMS responded to commands from the ACME. The Time Reference System provided the facilities for performing all timing functions aboard the spacecraft, and included an electronic timer, a time correlation buffer, a mission elapsed time digital clock, an Accutron clock and a mechanical clock. The maneuver hand controller found on the seated instrument panel commanded translational maneuvers of the spacecraft in the vertical, longitudinal, and horizontal planes. A detailed guide to the full systems covered by the trainer is available upon request.

Project Gemini was NASA's second human spaceflight program, started in 1961 and concluding in 1966. The spacecraft carried a two person crew, ten of which flew manned low Earth orbit missions between 1965 and 1966.

Please note that this lot is being sold in situ, and is currently located in Houston, Texas. Interested parties who wish to view the lot are invited to contact the specialist for this sale, Cassandra Hatton (+1 212 461 6531, cassandra.hatton@bonhams.com), to make arrangements.

High School Student Stuns The Internet With Breathtaking Original Song (...
elitedaily.com

This girl has got skills. Listen to Molly Kate Kestner, a high school senior from Minnesota, perform an original song, "His Daughter."

Well presented and accomplished Gan Shalom! Your setting is idyllic. I love the fact your location is almost directly in between Orinda and Martinez and California outside the western edge of Briones Regional Park. The view on your grounds is one of a protected peace with a nice view of the green hills and trees all around. Sunny and pleasant and quiet. Were I to be buried this is one of the places I'd consider. As it was I attended the funeral of a friend. Know what I do about the family's desire for an accurate and respectful handling of family members, I praise Gan Shalom's staff for the quick and considerate services provided. On the day of the funeral the Rabbi and the staff members were kind as you could imagine any to be. People attending outside of Judaism were well accommodated in both consideration of their own views and in readings in both Hebrew and English. I loved the explanation of the meaning as well as the words. My thanks to the Rabbi and the staff for such nice handling of everything. As you might expect amenities included plenty of parking space, tissues, water, a air conditioned chapel on site, and a green awning at the outdoor seating providing shade and solace from the sun. All of the cemetery is on flat ground. On that day it was important to have this property due to at least one attendee who was having a hard time walking. So the ease of transitioning from the chapel to the grave site was much appreciated. One additional detail I noted is Gan Shalom seems to be in an mobile service shadow region. Some text messages did get through but most communications were limited. The location provided a natural way limit cell phone calls and keep the service respectful. Judging by the appearance of the other plots and grounds at Gan Shalom the gardening and grounds crew do a great job of taking care of the place. I am confident my friend will be well take care of until his family joins him when their time comes.

Various meats including lamb, buffalo and venison. The perfect grinds you might need without making a mess of your kitchen. Special mixes for your BBQ too. Ask for their summertime specials with a mix of hamburger and bacon. It's the perfect mix. Save-More Meat Market has been my meat suppliers for years. Love their service with a smile, and that service comes with a better sale price on any day than most any major grocery store. The added plus? You'll never find a mass of brown meat in the center of your ground hamburger like I have seen at Safeway. Save-More Meat market beef it always top quality fresh goodness!

One the best local stops in the area. Always has gas prices that are either the lowest, or at least competitive with anything else for five miles. Nice selection of snack and lotto.
