  2. “No need when you have Their ABC on-side.”i don’t know, adrian. I reckon their ABC did a fine shop of shifting the debate for the government last night. Haven’t heard much about Newspoll or asylum seekers anywhere much today except here. Nick Minchin’s suicide bombing of the Coalition has had saturation coverage. The “spiral of silence” must be on the blink.

  8. As for Brewery Gulch Inn, its a nice place, to be sure, but I have misgivings about how they built it. From what I understand, they hauled salvaged wood from a stream bed, effectively screwing up a salmon-spawning ground. And its in the woods, not by the sea. But they have good beds and high-quality linens. Still, its not my favorite.

  14. I hated this rule when it came out this year. However, if I knew about it then you know the coaches have went over and over it with their players. I would think something like this rule would be drilled in their heads.Refs have been instructed to penalize showboating before the goal line by taking away points, after the goal line then yards accessed on kickoff.

  18. Przyjaciel jest potrzebny każdemu, zwłaszcza na etapie dorosłego życia. Czego można oczekiwać po przyjacielu? Każdy powinien odpowiedzieć sobie sam. Są standardowe definicje, ale każdy ma swoją, więc chciałbym je poznać, bo być może, ja od swojego przyjaciela wymagam za wiele?

  19. I loved your pictures and your thoughtful observations. I really appreciate it. I have always loved bright colors so just love seeing them used in quilts versus the more muted ones. I have never done a B.O.M. before because of the cost mainly but I do love the modern neighborhood and I have a thing about house quilts so I would seriously consider doing that one.

  21. Ah, just sussed this one.Those figures are good news for the Tories, who have pledged to reduce immigration to manageable levels.However, the good news will be lost in the tsunami-like coverage of Leveson, especially by the BBC.So for the BBC, a good day to bury good news (and thus yet another left-wing tweet).Geddit?   5 likes
