Hey guys -
Heres the situation. My grandmother ( who was 96 ) passed away a few weeks ago. I first found out she didnt leave anything to me or my brother or our cousins. Then I found out through my mom - my granmother left us all savings bonds ( Series HH ) $ 1000.00 face value. She bought them in Feb. 2002 - but Im not sure if they collect interest.
Anyway - I told my wife about the bond and the value - I'm not sure what to do. I'd love to get some cool stuff for myself ( and do a bit of gambling ) and maybe get some extra stuff for her and my son for xmas. I feel a little guilty about the money - I mean it was my grandmother - so the money is all mine - but we are a family / share money etc..
Not sure what to do - what do you guys think. I also thought about just giving her like $ 250-300 - just for her.
Like I said I feel guilty if I kept it all and didnt share - but I guess it was sort of my inheritance to some extent. Trying to think how I would feel if it was reversed - I mean it would be her money - she could do what she wants with it ( because its family )
You know how money does things in a marriage - Any tips or help guys would really be appreciated.
There is a boatload of fetishes out there - new ones are prob. popping up everyday.
I've got no problem with what people like to get down to.
I personally love to see chicks in yoga/workout pants - that is some hot shit
Whats everyone's thoughts on this stuff?
I was thinking of maybe getting an Apple Ipad - but recently I have seen some other tablets for sale that are cheaper and seem pretty comparable.
Other tablets by companies like Cruz and Pandigital.
What's everybody think?
Is the Ipad the way to go - since it's the dominant technology?
- thats a lot of pot......
TIJUANA, Mexico — Mexican soldiers have found the largest marijuana plantation ever detected in Mexico, a huge field covering almost 300 acres, the Defense Department said Thursday.
The plantation is four times larger than the previous record discovery by authorities at a ranch in northern Chihuahua state in 1984.
The pot plants sheltered under black screen-cloth in a huge square on the floor of the Baja California desert, more than 150 miles south of Tijuana, across the border from San Diego.
Army Gen. Alfonso Duarte said the screening, which is often used by regular farmers to protect crops from too much sun or heat, made it difficult to detect from the air what was growing underneath.
It was only when soldiers on the ground reached the isolated area Tuesday that they found thousands of pot plants as high as 2.5 yards tall. The average height of the plants was about 1.5 yards. Duarte said they were not yet ready for harvest.
"We estimate that in this area, approximately 60 people were working. When they saw the military personnel, they fled," Duarte told reporters. A few were later reportedly detained at a nearby roadblock, but Duarte said no arrests were made at the scene.
He said traffickers could have harvested about 120 tons of marijuana from the plantation, worth about 1.8 billion pesos.
Video of the plantation showed a sophisticated system of piped-in irrigation to support the plants, which Duarte said was fed by two wells. The plantation also included some wooden outbuildings, presumably for use by people caring for the plants.
Troops will destroy the fields by burning them, Duarte said.
The site is the near the coastal town of San Quintin. Journalists were en route there Thursday under army escort.
While it's unknown how much of Mexican drug cartels' income comes from marijuana, recent discoveries suggest it remains a large-scale trade.
Last October, Mexican authorities made their largest-ever seizure of marijuana packaged for sale, a record 148 tons found in a number of tractor trailers and houses in Tijuana. They appeared to make up a major distribution center traced directly to Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman, Mexico's most-wanted fugitive, who has expanded the reach of his Sinaloa cartel along the U.S.-Mexico border since escaping from prison in 2001.
In November, U.S. and Mexican investigators found two long, sophisticated tunnels under the border between Baja California and California, along with more than 40 tons of marijuana in and around the tunnels.
The tunnels ran about 2,000 feet from Mexico to San Diego and were equipped with lighting, ventilation and a rail system for drugs to be carried on a small cart.
U.S. officials say they believe the tunnels also were the work of the Sinaloa cartel.
While the Arellano Felix or Tijuana cartel long dominated the drug trade in Baja California, the cartel has been greatly weakened by government hits on its leadership, and authorities say there are signs that the Sinaloa cartel now also operates in the area.
Duarte said he did not know which group operated the plantation found Tuesday
Terrible way to die - kinda like Michael Hutchence / David Carridine - but more over the top.
Guess he couldn't utter his safe word...
COLUMBIA STATION, Ohio -- An Ohio pathologist says an exotic-animal keeper found dead in his waterbed was face down, tied with bondage restraints and had obstructions over his nose and mouth.
Dr. Frank P. Miller III at the Lorain County coroner's office tells The Associated Press on Tuesday that Sam Mazzola was asphyxiated in an apparent accident during sexual role-play. Miller says Mazzola had a sex toy in his mouth, wore a mask and was chained to the bed.
An employee found the 49-year-old Mazzola dead Sunday. The manner of his death is pending further investigation.
A bear owned by Mazzola killed an employee who opened its cage for feeding last year at the Mazzola home in Columbia Station, where wolves and tigers also were kept. Columbia Station is about 15 miles outside Cleveland.
