Thanksgiving, or Thanksgiving Day, is a traditional North American holiday, and is a form of harvest festival. The date and whereabouts of the first Thanksgiving celebration is a topic of modest contention. Though the earliest attested Thanksgiving celebration was on September 8, 1565 in what is now Saint Augustine, Florida[1][2], the traditional "first Thanksgiving" is venerated as having occurred at the site of Plymouth Plantation, in 1621.

Today, Thanksgiving is celebrated on the second Monday of October in Canada and on the fourth Thursday of November in the United States. Thanksgiving dinner is held on this day, usually as a gathering of family members. Reading More…

You never know, but maybe the perfect dog for you is not your common breed.

A Portuguese Water Dog has a curly or wavy coat and is ruggedly built. This breed is highly intelligent and is bound to learn tricks quickly.

This dog is a seafaring breed and is best known for being companions of Portuguese fishermen. They make excellent companions because they are spirited but always very obedient

This breed can weigh up to 50 pounds and can grow to around 23 inches long! They usually come in black, various tones of brown and white.

Portuguese Water Dogs (PWD) once existed all along Portugal’s coast, where they were taught to herd fish into fishermen’s nets, to retrieve lost tackle or broken nets, and

American Buffalo is a groundbreaking 1976 play by American playwright David Mamet. A Broadway revival begins performances October 31, 2008 with John Leguizamo, Cedric the Entertainer, and Haley Joel Osment starring.

The play concerns a team of men, Don, Teach, Bob, and Fletcher (who does not appear in the play, but is referred to), who are conspiring to steal a coin collection from a wealthy man. Don, who owns a junk shop, sold a nickel to a man for much less than what it was worth. Out of revenge, he and his friend-in-training, Bob, plan to steal the man’s coin collection after suspecting that he went away for the weekend. Teach, an experienced and misanthropic friend of Don’s, persuades Don to release Bob from the job because of what Teach feels is inexperience and potential disloyalty. Towards the end of the play, Bob, out of a need for money, attempts to sell Don a rare nickel, similar to the one Don sold. In a culmination of anger, Teach hits Bob on the head, believing that he stole the coin back and betrayed them. Fletcher, the outside man who never appeared in the play, ends up getting mugged and beaten by thugs. The play ends with the plan called off, and Don and Bob making amends.

Apropos to Mamet’s writing style, the play is very terse and vulgar. Teach uses the word "cunt" numerous times and all three of them use the word "Fuck" quite loosely. There are not many monologues and the parentheticals are very straightforward, without any line readings.

Production the American Buffalo 24-karat gold coins were authorized by Public Law 109-145, dated December 22, 2005, also known as the Presidential $1 Coin Act.

The American Buffalo Gold coin’s obverse and reverse designs feature images originally prepared by noted American sculptor James Earle Fraser, once a student of Augustus Saint-Gaudens, for America’s 5-cent coin (nickel).

That popular coin, known as the Indian Head, or Buffalo, nickel was introduced in 1913 and showcases the native beauty of the American West.

The Native American depiction on the coins obverse is believed to be based on three different American Indians. Two of the American Indians who modeled for Fraser as he sculpted the coin were named by the designer before his death. They were known as Chief Iron Tail of the Lakota Sioux and Chief Two Moons of the Cheyenne. Although many have claimed to have had a sitting with Fraser for this design, he could not recall the name of the third person and satisfactory documentation has not yet been found to identify that individual. It is widely believed that the bison on the coins reverse was modeled after Black Diamond, a popular attraction at the New York Zoological Gardens.

In the first year of the coin’s issuance, 1913, there were two distinct varieties, the first showing the bison on a mound and the second with the base redesigned to a thinner, straight line. American Buffalo Gold Coins bear the original Fraser Type I design.

brazilianwax Forget what you’ve heard about first time waxes, the grueling pain, huge slabs of fleshy wax and pubic hair removed and the horror screams coming from beauty salons across the country.

Why? Well, they’re simply not true and are really more of an urban myth.

The truth is you like millions of other women out there are confidently leaping into the final frontier of beauty perfection. If you’re spending big money on your hair, skin, gym visits and tanning, you can’t leave your neither regions to chance either.

You can bet your ‘competition’ has already discovered this little secret, isn’t it about time you did too? You’ll need to at least ‘tidy up’ downstairs, or the new man in your life really may think he’s really in a horror movie!

So, your Brazilian appointments booked…

You found your nearest salon online, or asked a close friend where she gets hers done, and the $50 in your purse will soon buy you something unusual if you’re new to body treatments of this kind. And I promise its value will buy you thousands more in the bedroom once you’re finished.

(The reason, the Brazilian wax was recently voted by men as the sexiest waxing style on women)

Then you enter the salon, and soon meet your professionally trained and experienced beauty therapist. Never go to a dodgy looking salon and always try and get a reference or recommendation first.

You’ll be asked to remove your clothing below the waist and may be offered disposable underwear. This depends a little on the Brazilian wax style you choose. More basic style allow underwear to be worn, others require full access to remove all the hair.

It’s up to you if you go ‘all-off’ first – not what I’d recommend as the pain may be a little too much to get used to in one hit.

Better to try one of the basic waxes first and see what pain relief options are available at the salon. Best to call up beforehand and see what they can offer, this way you can check to see if they’re suitable for your health needs as well.

The rest is pretty straight forward really, it’s just waxing, but ‘down there’.

Your beautician is professionally trained so she should know all the tips and tricks to ensure you get a great result, with minimal discomfort, every time.

Follow the instructions given to you at the salon about post-waxing and the things to do (and not do) between salon visits.

I’m sure you’ll love your new look – I should know, I’ve helped thousands of women wax for the first time over the years and I never tire of hearing how it’s changed their lives.

Then, hit the town, enjoy your newfound confidence for a whole month before your next visit – it may be one of the best months of your life!

To your waxing success,



A yacht brokerage firm had tried to sell the boat for a reported $35 million. But Iraq said the yacht still belonged the country.

The government of Iraq is selling the yacht of its former leader Saddam Hussein, Itar-Tass reports. The existence of the 80-meter-long Basra Breeze yacht (formerly known as Qadisiyah Saddam and Ocean Breeze) has been classified for a long time. It was moored in the south of France along with millionaires’ vessels, and is currently expecting its new owner in Greece. The starting price for the floating palace is $20 million.

The yacht was built for Saddam Hussein by Danish engineers. The vessel was complete in 1981. Outwardly, it does not look so modern anymore, although the interior of the yacht was created to meet Hussein’s royal requirements. Gold, marble and other expensive materials along with mahogany furniture were used in the decoration of the luxury yacht. The Basra Breeze also has a secret passage, which allows the owner to access a motor boat and escape in case of emergency. The yacht is also outfitted with two surgery rooms and a special operation room. To crown it all, the yacht was equipped with a ground-to-air missile system, which is not going to be auctioned.

The yacht legally belongs to the incumbent government of Iraq. Organizers of the auction say that it would be naïve for them to think that the auction market has not been affected with the global economic situation, although they hope for success.

BAGHDAD (AP) – Iraq says it has decided to sell Saddam Hussein’s luxury yacht after winning a legal dispute over its ownership.

The former dictator’s 269-foot superyacht is fitted with swimming pools, salons, a secret passage and a rocket launching system (surely it’s been disabled though?)

Iraq’s government spokesman Ali al-Dabbagh says in a statement that the government on Sunday agreed to part with the superyacht.

French authorities seized the boat on Jan. 31 after it docked in Nice on the Mediterranean coast. The yacht remained there while courts settled a row over the ship’s ownership.
