Spill shuts down US highway

Bull semen spill shuts down US highway

A spill of frozen bull semen bound for a breeder in the state of Texas triggered a scare that temporarily shut down a US interstate highway during the morning rush hour.

The incident began when the driver of a Greyhound bus carrying the freight alerted the fire department he had lost a part of his load while negotiating the ramp on a highway near Nashville.

"We didn't know what it was, but we were told (the canisters) were non-toxic," said Maggie Lawrence, a fire department spokeswoman.

When firefighters arrived on the ramp, they saw "four small propane-sized canisters (that) began to emit a light vapour," Lawrence said.

In addition to the vapour, the canisters also let off an unpleasant odour and the ramp was closed while emergency personnel tried to determine what was in the containers.

The bus driver turned around to retrieve the canisters. Once emergency personnel learned the smoking canisters were nothing hazardous and that they simply contained frozen bull semen that had been stored on dry ice, Tennessee Department of Transportation and fire department workers cleared the ramp.

"It was no different to us than if a mattress fell off a truck," said transportation spokeswoman BJ Doughty.

I kind of smirked when I was reading this article.  Whats not funny about frozen bull semen but when the transportation spokeswomans name was BJ, I nearly lost it. I mean semen and BJs go together like peanutbutter and jelly.

Magic 21

These magic 21 tricks for pleasing ur woman have been passed down for centuries, and each is an old Tibetan teaching I will now share with you.

1. When she asks how she looks shrug and say "could be better" this will keep her on her toes and girls love that.

2. Never hold her hand. This can be interpreted as a sign of weakness. (Or if she grabs your hand squeeze hers really really hard until she cries. This will impress her by showing her what a strong man you are.)

3. Once a month sneak up on her from behind and knock her over. Girls are like dogs. They love to be roughed up.

4. Call her in the middle of the night to ask if she's sleeping. If she is, say you better be. Repeat this 4 or 5 times until morning. This will show her you care.

5. When she is upset about something, suggest to her that it might be her fault. This will pave the way for her own personal improvement and every girl needs some improvement.

6. Recognize the small things . . . they usually mean the most. Then when she's sleeping, steal all her small things and break them, because jewelry is for pussies and Asian ladies.

7. If you're talking to another girl, make sure shes looking. When she is, stare into her eyes mouth the words "fuck you" and grab the other girls ass.

Girls love competition.

8. Introduce her to your friends as "some chick". Women love those special nicknames.

9. Warm her up when shes cold...and not by giving her your jacket... Then you might get cold. Rather, look her in the eye and say "if you don't stop bitching about the cold right now you're going to be bitching about a black eye." The best way to get warm is with fear.

10. Take her to a party. When you get there shell have to go to the bathroom (they always do). Leave immediately. Come back right when the party's dying and yell at her the whole way home for ditching you at the party.

11. Make her laugh. A good way to do this is if she's cooking food. knock the food off the table. I always find stuff like that funny. Why shouldn't girls?

12. If you care about her never ever tell her. This will only give her self confidence. Then you can never turn her into the object she deep down desires to be.

13. Every time you're in her house steal one of the following: shoes, earrings, or anything else that comes in pairs. Only take one of the pair.

This way shell go crazy.

14. Give her one of your t-shirts......and make sure it has your smell on it. but not a sexy cologne smell. A bad smell. You know what I'm talking about.

15. Titty twisters, and plenty of them.

16. If you're listening to music, and she asks to hear it, tell her no. This way she'll think you're mysterious.

17. Remember her birthday but don't get her something. Teach her material objects aren't important. The only thing thats important is that she keeps you happy. And your happiness is the greatest present she can ever get.

18. When she gives you a present on your birthday, Christmas, or just when ever, take it and tell her you love it. Then next time you know she's coming over on a trash day leave the trash can open and have the present visibly sticking out of the can. Girls actually don't like this one that much but I think it's funny.

19. If shes mad at you for not calling her when you say you will promise her that you will call her at a certain time of the day. This will make sure that she waits by the phone. Tell her when you call you're going to tell her a special surprise. Now shell be really excited. Now don't call. Ever.

20. Next time you are having sex, make sure you get off before she does, then get off her and leave. Girls love that.

21. Remember her birthday but don't get her something. Teach her material objects aren't important. The only thing thats important is that she keeps you happy. And your happiness is the greatest present she can ever get.

I finally received an email confirmation for the Pub Crawl Donation:

Wednesday, August 17, 2011

All Thing Wahlberg - Paul Wahlberg’s burger joint, a 4,367-square-foot restaurant with outside patio, took a step closer to opening with the Board of Selectmen's approval Tuesday of an all-liquor license.

Wahlburger's, which will be located next to Alma Nove at Hingham’s Shipyard, will contain 120 seats – 80 inside and 40 seasonal outside – and will serve traditional burgers, fries, and hot dogs.

Alma Nove is also owned by Wahlberg, who opened it last last summer with partners that include brothers Mark (the actor) and Donnie (the actor and singer).

Walhburger's plans to have a "soft" opening in mid-September, and a grand opening in middle of October.

According to Wahlberg’s attorney, Jeffery Tocchio, who spoke at Tuesday's selectmen's meeting, the new eatery will help “activate the edges” of the shipyard, as well as bring in business year-round.

“This place has been a big success, even in the off season, which is good cause the shipyard is looking for off season draws,” he said. “We’re also consistent in the on season, it’s like moths to a flame, almost literally.”

The outside patio will have the same glass enclosure as Alma Nove, with a masonry foundation at the base.

Not only will the outside patio look similar to its sister site across the street, but operationally the restaurant will follow a similar model to its Italian counterpart.

The $900,000 project, being constructed under Paragon Funding Group III LLC, already has two investors, and the project is moving ahead smoothly, Tocchio said.

Although the main focus of the restaurant will be casual diner fare, Wahlberg did stress that some healthier options would eventually be added to the menu.

“It’s a fast, casual burger restaurant. It’s burgers, fries, frappes, and dogs. There will be some healthy options - I’m working on a recipe for a salmon burger … and there will be a turkey burger as well. At some point will implement salads,” Wahlberg said.

Selectmen were enthusiastic about the idea of adding another prominent business to the Hingham waterfront.

“Sounds like an attractive entity, and it sounds like it will fill a niche,” Selectwoman Laura Burns said. “I appreciate your increasing investment in Hingham.”

Selectmen Bruce Rabuffo also noted that Alma Nove has worked very well in the town, and he looked forward to seeing a second Wahlberg business flourish.

“The [police] chief has commented that he is pleased with your performance at Alma Nove, and that makes us happy. We’re happy to see you have that success,” Rabuffo said.
Wahlberg will additionally be adding a two-person outdoor entertainment group to Alma Nove from August through October on Sundays from 3 to 7 p.m.

“Hingham’s location has a lot to offer, so it's just an enhancement to what we do,” Wahlberg said.

Selectmen requested that Wahlberg remain mindful of neighbors who might object to amplified noise, but approved the temporary entertainment license without issue.

Yeah, the readers like All things Wahlbergs and this is no exception. Julie Nickerson sent this from La La land(why she refuses to actually blog is beyond me). She can't wait to come home, kick it with her peeps and try it out.

I on the other hand love any and all things burgers. I had Wily Willies in Quincy and its kinda BLAH!! Its not even  in my top 10 burgers in the state.  Maybe I will do a burger review of all the best, greasiest and best tasting burgers(Not including The Big 3 - Wendys, Mcdonalds, and B) in the area.

Triple Double

Chicago - For those who think the Double Stuf Oreo is too dainty, Kraft Foods' has launched the Triple Double Oreo which combines a layer of vanilla cream, a layer of chocolate cream and three layers of chocolate Oreo cookies.
"Our fans' passion and enthusiasm has challenged us to raise our game," said Jessica Robinson, associate director of consumer engagement, Kraft Foods. "We are looking forward to engaging with Oreo fans as they share their twisting, licking and dunking moments with the new Triple Double Oreo cookie."

The new cookie is actually a new take on Argentina's Oreo "x3" (pronounced "Por Tres") cookie, introduced in 2010.
"The birthplace of OREO is America, but it's one global cookie," says John Ghingo, senior director of global marketing for Oreo.

Now I am not a huge fan of Oreos. I mean I will snack on a few but a few is really all I can have.  I rarely have more than 6 Oreos at a time.

I know some blog readers, Mario and Supah P, would love to have an Oreo eating competition. Eat as many as you can within 15 minutes with 1 glass of milk. Who would be in for this? How many could you eat?

This whole triple double Oreo may take it to a whole new level!!

Pub Crawl this Saturday

Krawl for Kubie Kids - This Saturday, August 20th.

This Saturday a pub Crawl for Mike Kuberas' Kids. Mike lost his life after sustaining a serious injury at work while doing what he always did: His Job.  Those of us who knew Mike well knew his affinity for the Polish American Club on Boston Road here in Boston. We decided that would make the most sense to be the starting point for the day, with a Pub Crawl thru South Boston to follow. All the money raised will go to Mikes three children. We are in the process of setting the bars for the event, and will be looking to see if any of them will be willing to work with us with drink specials, apps, etc....

The scheduled bars are as follows:

Polish Americans Club 1:00-2:30PM

The Sports Connection 2:30-4:00PM

The Stadium 4:00-5:30PM

Sullys 5:30-7:00PM

The Junction 7:00-8:30PM

The Black Thorn 8:30-10:00PM

Amhreins 10:00-11:30 PM

The Cornerstone 11:30-close

There is a FaceBook page set up under Krawl for Kubies Kids if you have any questions that I may of not answered here.
I am working till 7pm but I plan on meeting up after work. Probably at the Junction.
Hope to see you there for buckets of beers, lots of laughs and plenty of bullshitting.

Tweet of the week

I am still trying to figure out the best way to do tweet of the week:
1. Should I wait all week and just post it on Friday?
2. Should I post it when it happens?
3. Should I post the tweeters avatar(pic)?

I have done it both ways. It seems if I wait the issue may not be as funny or pertinent but if I don't wait then a better tweet may come along the rest of the is quite a dilema. What do you guys think I should do?

"@CharleeRedz13: It's official.. Pride 2 the side.. just filled out a application at Home Depot.. Lockout aint a game.."

For those of you who are not on twitter or do not follow CharleeRedz13, this is none other than Boston Celtic, Delonte West. 

I guess times are tough. Delonte is out there in the job pool.

AG’s office claims Dorchester restaurant barred entry to minorities

By Martin Finucane, Globe Staff
The Massachusetts attorney general’s office has sued a Dorchester restaurant and bar and its owner, alleging that the establishment engaged in a pattern of not allowing minorities to enter.
“We allege that Peggy O’Neil’s engaged in discriminatory and unlawful conduct,” Attorney General Martha Coakley said in a statement. “No one who lives, works, or visits Massachusetts should be subjected to discrimination. All businesses must ensure that appropriate anti-discrimination policies are posted and adhered to within their establishments.”

Caron O’Neil, owner of the Dorchester Avenue business, vehemently denied discriminating.
“Absolutely, we do not discriminate against anybody. We’re a Dorchester neighborhood bar. That’s our customer base. You know, it’s a very diverse neighborhood,” she said.

“We’ve been in business since 1963. Not ever have we had a complaint,” she said.

The lawsuit claims that one night in December 2010, two men of Cape Verdean and African descent were turned away from O’Neil’s on Dorchester Avenue. Then later that night, a group of friends of Cape Verdean, Spanish, and African descent were turned away. A third group of minorities was allegedly denied entry in April.

The lawsuit is seeking monetary damages, civil penalties, and a court order requiring the establishment to comply with state and federal antidiscrimination and consumer protection laws, the statement said. The lawsuit also asks the judge to order the owners to impose an antidiscrimination policy and to have the staff to undergo antidiscrimination training.
O’Neil said she was looking to tell “the true side of the story” and that, in the end, “I’m sure it will all clear up.”

Come on! Anyone who has ever been to Peggys knows that this can not be true.  Anytime, you are in there it is like the United Nations.  If I were a betting man, and I am, I bet these guys were coming in some night after 1 oclock and were too drunk to be let in. Then their friends were coming from the same party and were too drunk to come in. The only place in the city where there is more Jungle fever is the Hong Kong!

Mississippi man buys 150 pizzas from Massachusetts restaurant

STOUGHTON, Mass. - A Mississippi man who grew up in Massachusetts goes to great lengths for a good pizza. About 1,400 miles.

David Schuler returned to Jackson, Miss., last weekend with 150 pies from Town Spa Pizza, a restaurant in his home town of Stoughton, just outside Boston.
It's a tradition he started years ago when he couldn't find a good slice in Mississippi.
He returned with 150 frozen, vacuum-sealed pies. That was a record for him. They cost $1,200.

He made the 16-state trek in 24 hours, munching on Town Spa pizzas he kept on the passenger seat.

Restaurant manager Kerry Hughes tells The Enterprise of Brockton he ships pizzas as far as California and Florida, but Schuler is his best out-of-state customer.

I like pizza, alot. I could probably eat pizza everyday but there is no way I am driving 1400 miles for a pizza.  No pizza  is worth that even if it came with a blow job, a full body massage and free booze. Not Reginas, Alumni, Santarpios, The Brown Jug, Linwoods, Cape Cod Pizza, PICCO or the Town Spa. This guy either needs to build himself a pizza oven and start making his own pizza, open up his own shop or just find a place and have them make they type of Za he likes

15. Chrissy loves employee appreciation week, kid comes out rose with 4 free passes to 6 Flags:
16. Shaun Larry Dillon hates Hull but everytime I ask how he is, I get some sort of story how he was in Hull with his lady.  So do you hate it or secretly love it?
17. Do not eat cupcakes with too much food coloring in the frosting. Your poop will thank you later.
18. Thai pork stew in the crock pot is quick and easy.
19. StyleGal had her bachelorette party down in Newport and rocked it out.

Tweet of the week

I was going to sift through the Barstool Sports/Brady tweets but there wasn't anything very poignant in that debauchery. I moved along to the DOW Jones and Nsdaq but I puked everytime I read what I was losing. I can hardly go 2 tweets without someone talking about the Patriots and Ridley and we are going to the Ship...relax people it's one preseason game. Amidst all the shit, I found Steven Kampfer of the Boston Bruins, just being a guy alone at the airport...

"@SteveKampfer47: Absolute people watching at the airport right now. Average girl walking by. Solid 5.3. #terribletalenttoday"

It is nothing great but it made me smile.

Hang in there

SEOUL, South Korea — Police in South Korea say a passenger found hanged in a plane bathroom apparently killed himself during the flight.

A police official based at Incheon International Airport said Tuesday the man was found hanging by his belt from a clothes hanger after the flight landed.

Monday’s Asiana Airlines flight had departed from Guangzhou, China. The official says the man had worked at a Guangzhou branch office of a South Korean company and was returning home.

The official declined to be identified because he didn’t want to influence the investigation.

No suicide note was found. The man was a 43-year-old South Korean.

South Korea’s suicide rate is the highest in the developed world.

I have no idea how long the flight from Guangzhou, China to South Korea is but i'm sure at some point someone had to use the bathroom. I mean, I have seen people hop up as soon as the planes seat belt light goes off. Don't the flight attendants check the bathrooms before the descent? I have been on plenty of flights to know that something ain't adding up. The craziest thing is this isn't  the first time that this has happened...

$180 Mill??

U.S. authorities have recovered nearly 15,000 pounds of cocaine worth an estimated $180 million from a sunken submarine-like vessel used by smugglers off the coast of Honduras, the Coast Guard said on Monday.

The crew of the Boston-based Coast Guard Cutter Seneca intercepted a self-propelled semi-submersible vessel off the Caribbean coast of Honduras on July 13.

Authorities detained the vessel's crew and recovered some drugs before the boat sank, the Coast Guard said.
Several Coast Guard cutters, the Honduran Navy and FBI dive teams then used side-sonar equipment to search for the sunken submarine-like vessel, which was located on July 26.

They spent about three days recovering the rest of the drugs, in what the Coast Guard described as the first underwater drug removal from such a vessel.
"This is a once-in-a-career thing that happens," said Lieutenant Commander Peter Niles, commanding officer of the Coast Guard Cutter Oak, whose crew located the sunken vessel.
The case is under investigation, and the contraband will be turned over to other U.S. law enforcement agencies, the Coast Guard said.

Semi-submersible vessels typically are built in Colombian jungles and are less than 100 feet in length, according to the Coast Guard. They carry up to 10 metric tons of drugs for distances up to 5,000 miles and are designed to sink rapidly to make it difficult for law enforcement to recover the cargo.

Honduras is used by Mexican and Colombian cartels to traffic drugs to the United States. Mexican drug gangs have been moving into Central America since Mexico's government launched an army-led drive to crush them 4 1/2 years ago.

"Our mission out here in the Caribbean is to keep drugs from crossing our borders and making our communities (back) home safer," said Commander Charles Fosse, commanding officer of the Seneca. "It's very satisfying for the crew."

Someone is going to die for this...
