Plastichic, the ultra stylish Italian lightweight silicon watch is now available in the United States through exclusive retailers. Tubular and ergonomically shaped with a flat back and anti-perspiration slits on the sides, Plastichic (The Original) has presented an unconventional use of Tourmaline® that can be worn comfortably to emphasize any personal style. Fashionable, colorful, practical and functional, the anti-sweat and water resistant Plastichic watch is the “timepiece cult of the moment”, as seen on celebrities David Beckham, Lindsay Lohan and Kristin Dunst. The aquamarine, turquoise, coral, green and orange, plus the 2009 shades of purple, pink, army green, acid green and fuchsia are just some of the colors that join the basic white and black. The timepiece is available in 19 different colors.

THE JOB - URINE TEST (Whoever wrote this one deserves a HUGE pat on the back!)
Like most folks in this country, I have a job. I work, they pay me. I pay my taxes and the government distributes my taxes as it sees fit. In order to get that paycheck in my case, I am required to pass a random urine test (with which I have no problem). What I do have a problem with is the distribution of my taxes to people who don't have to pass a urine test. So, here is my Question: Shouldn't one have to pass a urine test to get a welfare check because I have to pass one to earn it for them? Please understand, I have no problem with helping people get back on their feet. I do, on the other hand, have a problem with helping someone sitting on their ______- doing drugs, while I work. . . Can you imagine how much money each state would save if people had to pass a urine test to get a public assistance check?
I guess we could title that program, 'Urine or You're Out'.
Pass this along if you agree or simply delete if you don't. Hope you all will pass it along, though. Something has to change in this country -- and soon!!!!!!!
Thank you to Dave L.

We did take a trip this summer, this was more like a working trip because I did not want to miss anything, and it was not a relaxing trip. I did seal our concrete driveway, painted all our exterior wood trim, throw a July 4th party, clean the garage, washed down our home’s exterior, worked on the gutters, installed a new front on the other bathroom vanity, pulled a couple of shrubs out, visited the guys at the fire stations, do repair work to a bathroom that became more work than I expected, trim trees and sold homes.
Not saying next summer is going to be any better, but I am going to make it a point to do more things for pleasure. The exterior trim painting, tree trimming and driveway sealing does not have to be done again until 2011.

Several months ago I served as Foreman of the Licking County Grand Jury. The knowledge I gained every Thursday for three months was well worth the time and effort. When you visit a Grade C or less convenient store, you may see the item shown. When ever I have seen this rose in a glass tube, I have always felt sorry for the lady who it would be purchased, perhaps making up for being out late or a last minute Mother's Day gift. Then my eyes were open by the county's prosecutor and narcotic agents.
