How to Play the Dice Games?

By chrisezine, published on Apr 28, 2014

The game requires only the dice; there is no need of pen and paper like other games. On other part of the game it requires stakes, whereas a throwing cup is recommended for the other functions in game. In the case of throwing cup there should be a present of mug and beaker to play. The game is fully based up on lucks with great suspense. Most of the children will enjoy this game because of the simplicity in game. The children’s will enjoy only few dice games, while the others are used to like many dice games. In order to play the player has to decide a single die with first, second throw and... (more)

Understanding Prospect Mortgage FHA 203K Loans

By bosmolskate, published on Feb 26, 2014

...reviews, individuals are only limited by price; however, with FHA 203K loans, buyers must be purchasing homes that need improvements or refinancing their own homes, so they can make repairs. In order for a home or property to be approved for this type of FHA loan, the family must live in the house during the renovations or repairs. This may seem like a difficult task, but repairs can be as minor as putting down new flooring or adding a patio or deck to the outside. Even if major problems need to be fixed, working on one or two areas at a time can make it possible to still reside in the... (more)

A House Built for Kids

By melanie jean juneau, published on Nov 3, 2013

First picture a large, 1886, quaint house with all sorts of quirks. Three sets of steps converge on the upstairs landing as the result of ceative home expansion. A window became doorway to a hundred year old addition which needed its own set of three steps. It must have been some one with an odd sense of humour who cut an extra 4 ft 10 inch doorway to the baby room into the low wall with a slanting roof. ( When I walked into the baby’s room at 2:00 am, in the pitch dark, I banged my forehead against that door frame every night for the first month after we moved into this house). That doorway... (more)

A Mess In A Mess Caused A Mess

By Scorpion Sting, published on Apr 30, 2013

This past Sunday I was down at the creek behind my house wandering around to see what I was up against. I have spent the last few summers clearing the area behind my property because it seems that it is a choke point where all the junk from up the creek ends up. There is one area that is so narrow that in the heat of the summer one can almost walk across it without getting their shoes wet. This seems to be a favored spot for all things in the creek to just give up and stop. It doesn't seem to help when an old tree falls in a recent thunderstorm and chokes it off completely. Which is what I... (more)

Finding A Treasure By Accident

By Scorpion Sting, published on Apr 25, 2013

...everything started so y'all don't get even more lost than usual. Anyway, not too terribly long ago I got a phone call from my mother-in-law where she proceeded to explain to me that her cousin's uncle's father's niece's father (or something to that extent) had passed away recently. He owned a house and property deep in the sticks here in southeast Texas and was a known hoarder of too many things to list. So, of the two people that all his worldly belongings were left to in a verbal will passed down word of mouth for a while is my mother-in-law and one of her sisters who had passed years... (more)

Seeing What Isn't There

By Scorpion Sting, published on Apr 18, 2013

...on being a month old. I usually grab the memory cards about once a week, but then it just depends on how much activity is going on back there. I have them set on on my path facing each other about 50 yards apart. There is one set just before the drop off to go down to the creek which faces the house and the other is up the path facing down towards the creek itself. The picture above is from the camera facing back up the trail towards my house. The light is actually on the corner of my shop. Now, as mentioned, I download all the pictures about once a week and then review what has been... (more)

Meeting Saint Louise - a Nordic sense of déjà vu.

By iancochrane, published on Mar 18, 2013

We’d passed by here before – wandering the streets of Trondheim, Norway – past tall and ornate, diamond timber-panelling on grand double gates, always shut; the name in sweeping letters across the arched pediment above : `Thomas Angells Hus'. This time, en-route to Nidaros cathedral, I pay little attention, until my girlfriend stops. Today, it seems an inset central door is open. We brave the stream of darting cyclists to cross the cobblestone road.

From the open door a sumptuous courtyard unfolds; sunlit, lush but apparently deserted. Another bicycle leans against a rendered wall, the... (more)

Commercialization and the music industry.

By Lartinos, published on Sep 28, 2012

...cultural phenomenon.

True artists are many times disgusted by commercial culture for good reason. Many artists possess far more talent than what is presented to the country and to entire world for that matter. Their contempt is shown through their art in counter culture movements such as House music. House music is about peace, love, and togetherness. But also it is about disdain for the commercialized culture that we live. It's a revolution of beats, thoughts, and vocals that transcend commercial values. The "suits" are slowly noticing the power of this culture and will definitely... (more)

Patriotically Speaking

By Caballero_69, published on Aug 4, 2011

...to the anachronistic debt ceiling and took the nation hostage. None of this is honorable; none of this is necessary. Republicans are seeking to get through extremist tactics what they have not won in elections and cannot enact via normal legislative procedures. Despite gaining control of the House of Representatives in the 2010 elections, the Republicans are the minority party in the federal government. The true danger to the nation is that political discourse is so contaminated and the citizenry so alienated, that the extremists may succeed in wooing sufficient votes to gain a majority... (more)

Hey, Can We Really Do That With Fountainhead?

By Marga, published on Feb 7, 2010

I enjoy a nice home. However, they are far and few between. Oh, there are houses. Plenty of houses. Many houses are ticky tacky houses. These houses are ubiquitous houses. These houses are boring and too often not even minimally functional. There’s something very special about a home that is elegant, comfortable, tasteful, textured, unique, charming, dynamic, functional, and organic. Fountainhead is such a home and it is an intense study of a home that is technically sound. You do not judge such a work by technical standards alone though. The emotion and sheer artistry displayed in Fountainhead... (more)
