    US Embassy: Exercise caution when using dating apps

    You're right but I think you missed my point. Get the persons number from them personally, not an app.

    Eggs

    Yeah, rendered it down to an oil and covered the meat before closing up the barrel. Supposed to still be good after a few months. Quality is questionable however, and I wont try it.

    US Embassy: Exercise caution when using dating apps

    If your phone works for the app it should work for the number, right? Well, unless you're still on the plane.

    US Embassy: Exercise caution when using dating apps

    Not to turn this into a dating site, but there are safer ways. Have the person take their phone and call you. Your phone in front of you. You have the proper number and the name. Better than one for the local fishmonger.

    DGA says it has seized more than 400,000 firearms in eight months

    Good point, I really wasn't thinking of commercial vessels. But there is a (insert expletive) of hidey holes on them. And of course dockworkers csn be bought. Just like customs everywhere.

    My refridgeration is a premium on board so ... let eggs warm to room temp. Thin film of petroleum jully and they keep well for a month. Could be more but haven't gone much past it.

    DGA says it has seized more than 400,000 firearms in eight months

    You thinking maybe like a 'bait & switch? Go ahead and grab these while three times as many get past? No mention as to where they were supposidly bound for. Remember nobody keeps a weapon after it's used in a crime ... so ya gotta get a new one. Ain't capitalism wonderful?

    Travel with Service Animals

    I agree, is it really? My neighbor has a poodle she drags everywhere. The dog can bearly understand 2 commands, and not very well. Seriously ... an 'emotion support animal' is, well like a teddy bear.
