Did this every day for a couple school years, no death or disease from malnutrition.

I don't think schools let kids leave during lunchtime anymore. :cry:


most schools are closed campuses and the ones that aren't, at least in the wealthier burbs, have kids running to their drug dealers at lunch. it's a real mess. I went home for school for nearly my entire 1-12 grades, or fast food in my later HS years as I had a car.

BS site not messed up now. Weird.

In Jr High, I got $5.00 a week allowance. (I did about $50.00 worth of chores at home!)
School lunch was .75, I could eat all week and have $1.25 left, or $5.00 a month in savings.
On the crappy food days I'd skip lunch to save the extra .75.
In High School, I got out at lunch (only had 3 classes,1/2 day) for the work program.
I probably should've took more classes and worked less.

Dear Complaint department,

There goes my niche to sell and ship individual coins... Fluffy Kittens! I blame Trump, or Kapernick!!!!! This is un-American!

I digress...

I cannot believe what some people will do:

Eyeball Tattoo Leaves Model In Pain And Partially Blind

But that's essentially what sclera tattooing is: using a needle to inject ink into the whites of your eyes (otherwise known as the sclera) to change their color.

anyone know of a listing / info on a Mickey Mouse 1oz Sixty Year silver round, has 1969 on front side, backside is 1928-1988. Mickey is in a spacesuit. Believe it was made by Rarities Mint, big R underneath the 1969 on front side.

I just can't find this bar anywhere. Just spent 20 minutes at ebay, think I'm just searching for it wrong.
thanks for any help / link.

This 45-foot statue of a naked woman could be coming to the Mall for four months

A 45-foot-tall statue of a nude woman, weighing in at 16,000 pounds, will greet visitors on the Mall for four months if activists have their way. They say the steel statue would stand in a yoga mountain pose near the Washington Monument facing the White House, depicting a strong woman feeling confident in her body.

The massive artwork would be the main attraction at the annual ­“Catharsis on the Mall” in November — a festival in the nation’s capital dubbed a “Burning Man” for Washington. Burning Man, an annual desert festival outside Reno, Nev., is known for building a hippie-like community that promotes art, self-expression, inclusiveness and civic engagement.

Pence will probably veto this idea, since he would no longer be allowed near the Mall without his wife, :lol: but maybe Trump will overrule him!

A good balance for that gigantic phallus that is the Washington Monument.

That's an excellent point. So this statue should be permanent. :thumbup:

anyone know an art site that might help me .....

Postby mnymgr1 » Thu Oct 05, 2017

Went to our local Habitat for Humanity store yesterday, I love deals and they certainly have them there.
They got in a bunch of artwork for 2 weeks now. Saw something yesterday, took pics and checked at home.
To my surprise and dismay, I should have bought it yesterday as this artist of prints is fairly well known.
Headed back today and they had sold a ton of art, now I'm ticked at myself as I also skipped an uber cool $10 piece the week before, was told they sold all 20 copies of those in under 4 hrs.
Anyways, walked around and found a clearance art bin in back and there it was sitting in the box, almost ready for the dumpster.
I grabbed it and now have to find out any kind of past pricing, I've looked at probably 25 art sites today, just no help and/or they want $$ to see past pricing.

Artist is Shoichi Hasegawa, 88 years old.
The name of the print, 99 were made, is Les Nympheas...........I think. The last few letters are not legible to me or my son. I do have pics on my phone if they'd help. His other work goes for $150-1200 online. Thanks for any sleuthing you might do.
