    From AOL...

    LONDON (July 30) - Her majesty would not be amused. A pair of Queen Victoria's bloomers, with a 50-inch waist, were snapped up for $9,000 by a Canadian buyer at a central England auction Wednesday.

    Hansons Auctioneers, PA / AP


    A Canadian buyer paid $9,000 at auction for a pair of Queen Victoria's bloomers. They have a 50-inch waist.

    I could have a fabulous trip to WDW for $9,000!

    How do high schools charge $l53.00 for a parking permit for students?
    Can you say price gouging. Staff Free. Students $l53.00. Age Discrimination? Errr. Who do they think is paying the parking fee? I'd like to show them my property tax bill with referendum that just paid for the lot.
    Grrrr. Yes Dr. Superintendent she could walk, so could you, you live
    1 1/2 miles closer and you are about 150# overweight and could use a stroll.

    Rant over.

    Well, at our local public schools, they tell them they are "paying for the privilege of driving" instead of being made to take the bus. Since the school board can mandate all students ride the bus or walk, students get to pay for their privileges. Also, our board argues that teachers "have to be there" and are, overall, more important. Given the fact that it is student attendance that brings in the federal school tax revenue, maybe they should give them free parking.

She had that teacher 2 years in a row, thank goodness.

    DD swears most of the math teachers she has had couldn't count change out of a drawer.
    My HS algebra/geometry teacher had such a high understanding of math that she told us we were all too stupid to learn because we did not understand the way she was teaching. She was brilliant, but no common sense. I would concur with your DD. ( It took a long time to get past being called stupid and geometry still baffles me)

    Wow, anything I can do to help? Rant, rave, yell at someone for you? Actually, it os better if you do the yelling yourself, much more therapuetic that way. Or kick something, really hard. Or bash a pillow a few times.

    A Japanese company has introduced a new canned drink called Unagi Nobori -- Surging Eel. The fizzy, yellow-colored drink contains extracts from the head and bones of eel and five vitamins found in the snaky fish, which is considered a summer delicacy.


    I was hungry.

    I was given a recipe for hot dog chili that was used for 40 years by a local restaurant. It is good stuff, I had never actually eaten a chili dog until four days ago, now I want more chili dogs.

    I have never eaten a chili dog. Love both hot-dogs and Chili, not big into
    combo's.

    A huge storm is just making its way in from NE Iowa and looks like it should sink and hit us in a hour or so. Best go do errands now, while I can see where I am driving. Great the radio just said they are going to be severe.
    Yippee. Bye.

    You guys just don't get a break from the storms. Well, batten down the hatches and get home from the errands fast enough to back inside your house before the storms hit.
