Yeah, so, I'm feeling a little "lightheaded" right now. And me thinks I've got a cold coming along. But that's not all, come to think of it, the strain on my neck has lifted too. What happened you say? The barbershop happened. I think I must have left 3 pounds (metric) of curls down there. You've guest it the dude on the left is me. (compare it against my profile pic and such)

I was of the opinion that after about a year and a half the hair should come off, the gig was up, and the like. So I did it. It feels kinda weird but familiar at the same time.

So, just you know. 'till next time.

omg omg..3 about 3 metres (how's that for metric).

Because of the point of the 'painting' in the background, it looks like you have a small tuft (kuif...moest m zelf ook ff opzoeken).

I've been to the barbershop today too, but I've kept it to the normal short. What wás good, is that it was free because I'm such a regular customer :)

wow, nice.

I get free stuff at my local snackbar sometimes, but I guess that's not really something to be jolly about, rh. :D

Haha nice move... I just got a major cut also. It feels really good.

I recently switched to a new barber shop, it is $4 cheaper. (The economy and all that.)

It is run by an older Russian couple, husband and wife. When they finish with your haircut, they always say: "Like new man!"

And it really does feel that way.

China and Russia put the blame on some screwed up experiments of US for the earthquake that happened in Haiti.
Chinese and Russian Military scientists, these reports say, are concurring with Canadian researcher, and former Asia-Pacific Bureau Chief of Forbes Magazine, Benjamin Fulford, who in a very disturbing video released from his Japanese offices to the American public, details how the United States attacked China by the firing of a 90 Million Volt Shockwave from the Americans High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) facilities in Alaska
If we can recollect a previous news when US blamed Russia for the earthquake in Georgio. What do you guys think? Is it really possible to create an earthquake by humans?
I came across this [url=]article about Haiti Earthquake[/url] in some blog it seems very interesting, but conspiracy theories have always been there.

The French gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne has a wonderful aroma, a rich taste; the saltiness increases with the incidence of veining. The overall flavor is piquant but not overly sharp. Bleu d'Auvergne started life as an imitation of Roquefort, using cow's milk in place of sheep's milk. Legend has it that a peasant, around 1845, decided to inject his cheese with a blue mold that he found growing on his left-over bread (the motto being, waste not, want not). And thus, the gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne was born. This French gourmet blue cheese comes from the region of Auvergne and the cheese is made from milk of Salers and Aubrac cows. The rind is very thin and so the cheese is usually wrapped in foil. The cheese is rich and creamy with a pale yellow color and scattered holes and well-defined greenish-blue veining. We cut and wrap this cheese in wedge of 8 ounces and 1 pound.

Do you think the best way to get the cheapest plane tickets is by calling the airline? Or, do you scan through hundreds of websites provided by search engines to find low airfare tickets? Maybe you hope to find cheap airfare in the local newspaper's travel section.
Finding cheap airline tickets can be one of the most frustrating experiences that most of us learn very quickly. Of course, most people eventually give up after spending hours scanning websites that offer virtually the same flight schedules and pricing. People purchase what they believe is the cheapest plane ticket, only to find their neighbor paid just a third of what they did!

Unless you understand the concept of of how airlines set prices, all the searching in the world won't provide the cheapest airline ticket prices. The following information will give you a guide to follow, as you wander through the maze searching for cheap airfare.

Understand how prices are set by airlines! Air ticket pricing is complex and unpredictable, and driven by competition, demand, and inventory. Airlines call this "yield management."

Competition is the beast behind the cheapest plane tickets. All major airlines utilize central reservation systems (owned by various airlines) to fill available seats. The systems are known as Apollo, Sabre, WorldSpan and Galileo. Prices are based on demand, and if some flights are selling well, the price will increase. If the flight is unpopular and has very little demand, the fare is lowered in hope of attracting consumers. In short, fares and inventory change every minute of every day!

Finding the cheapest plane tickets is difficult because travel agents and Internet websites use the central reservation systems that are updated periodically throughout the day. The reason why different searches come up with different results is because the systems are not updated at the same times. And, each system may use different algorithms when searching for low airfare tickets, which can provide a variety of ticket prices .

Playing bingo needs more than luck or skills and techniques, contrary to what most believe. Bingo, just like any game of chance, comes with rules and regulations that players should observe. Being a player comes with responsibilities and etiquette.

Winning the Game

The moment you figured out you won, you must immediately yell BINGO, and it should be loud enough for the floor walker to hear. The pot money shall be given to the winner once their winning card is confirmed. Well, in winning or once you know you just won, the most important thing is that you shout the winning word BEFORE the time elapses. If the game proceeds and the next number is mentioned and you failed to shout "Bingo", your winning card is disqualified. Therefore, this is the rule you must know.

There may be cases when there are two winners, and in this case the pot money shall be divided equally among the winners. Supposing there are two winning cards, the two winners will share half the prize money.

Bingo Game Rules

Bingo rules are basically the same no matter in which Online Bingo hall you play. But still it's good if you know these rules by heart. If it is your first try, then ask for handouts and inquire from pros regarding the game rules. Nonetheless, the ideal thing to do if you have questions is to ask the floor walker and not the person seated beside you. You should clarify things and doubts before the game starts because asking too many questions as the game proceeds could well distract you. This guideline also applies to those who are newcomers at casinos, those who play roulette for the first time.

Bingo halls demand an age limit of 18 years old. If you are below this age, you are prohibited to play. Some bingo houses ban alcohol inside, so players aren't supposed to take liquor nor drink it inside the venue. Smoking may also be restricted inside the venue, as there are designated smoking sections.

Take note that some Bingo houses don't allow food but some do, so it basically depends on the venue. Policies vary among different venues. For instance, some bingo halls allow reservation of cards, while others don't allow it. Some allow people to leave the venue in the middle of the game, others forbid it. But there are general policies observed in all bingo houses, such as disqualification of tampered bingo cards. There is no way you can get away with a tampered card because the walkers are adept at identifying authentic cards from tampered ones. You could be banned from a bingo establishment if proven liable of tampering a card. Hence, you should play honestly.

Interestingly, some venues offer special bingo games for kids although some halls don't allow players to have companions while playing. Suppose you bring kids with you, don't let them run around the venue and bother other gamers. They should behave well whilst you play and the game proceeds. Play quietly and don't recite the numbers you desperately want to come off because you'll be much of a disturbance if you do. Decorous playing is expectant of all players, even those who play roulette at casinos. Also, having a valid identification is important because you don't know you might win and need to present credentials.

The organization offers a single [url=]mua hang gia re online[/url] for each working day in each and every of the marketplaces it serves. The Groupon performs as an assurance agreement making use of ThePoint's platform: if a specified sum of people signal up for the offer, then the provide gets supplied to all if the predetermined bare bare minimum is not fulfilled, no a single gets the deal that working day. This lowers threat for retailers, who can handle the price reduction coupon codes as quantity reductions as well as product income advertising and marketing tools. Groupon tends to make cash by retaining about fifty % the cash flow the customer pays for the coupon.

For case in position, an $eighty therapeutic massage could be acquired by the buyer for $forty through Groupon, and then Groupon and the retailer would break up the $forty. That is, the retailer gives a therapeutic therapeutic massage valued at $80 and will get about $20 from Groupon for it (beneath a 50%/fifty% split). Or, if $240 worth of property portray organizations is obtained by the client for $fifty via Groupon, then the firm will get $twenty five and Groupon retains $25. The consumer will get the therapeutic therapeutic massage, or the home portray provider, in these illustrations, from the retailer for which they at first paid out $forty (or $fifty) to Groupon. There are particular firms to which Groupon to begin with did not supply its suppliers, these kinds of as capturing ranges and strip golfing gear nevertheless, capturing ranges have been highlighted on Groupon.

Not like labeled marketing and advertising and marketing, the service company does not pay out out any upfront cost to take part: Groupon collects personalized data from ready consumers and then contacts only people shoppers, mainly by each working day digital mail, who may perhaps perhaps be interested in a distinct merchandise or provider.

Groupon employs a large amount of copywriters who draft descriptions for the bargains highlighted by e mail and on the site. Groupon's advertising text for the 'deals' has been observed as a contributing facet to the popularity of the world wide web site, that consists of a exclusive merge of complete basic reality-analyzing and witty humor.

Owing to Groupon's business being largely composed of feminine consumers, the gives are often targeted on the wellness, actual physical health and splendor markets.

There are feasible issues with the company design. For illustration, a successful deal could briefly swamp a modest company with way way too several shoppers, jeopardizing a chance that customers will be dissatisfied, or that there will not be enough products to fulfill up with the desire. Hole, a massive clothing retailer, was capable to deal with 445,000 discount discount coupons in a countrywide offer (despite the simple fact that it knowledgeable server problems at one distinct position), but a scaled-down sized company could switch into abruptly flooded with shoppers. One specific espresso store in Portland, Oregon struggled with an enhance in customers for 3 months, when it marketed around to one,000 Groupons on the a single working day it was offered, according to 1 report. In reaction to comparable difficulties, Groupon officials point out that 'deal' subscriptions need to be capped in progress to a smart amount.
