    I'm so out of touch I had to look up "Eurovision" and you're right, Australia is in the SW Pacific. Disqualify them if they win!

    Finnish heavier rock was appreciated 10 years ago....

    Monroe picks up Classic Rock award in London

    Finnish rock veteran Michael Monroe's Sensory Overdrive has been voted best album of the year by readers of the British magazine Classic Rock.

    An easy competition...wait a second...

    In the poll, the disc muscled out the latest releases by the Foo Fighters, Motörhead, Whitesnake and others.

    Well it finally happened. Had to get the lawnmower out today and actually cut the grass. It's only been eight months since I last mowed the yard.

    Often , I have read, the wheat stealers sell it abroad and get guns for the money. I am sure Russia does the same. But using fridge components in Ukraine to make their tanks moving is simply hilarious. :):)

    however it had abacklash he didnt plan for. The farmers were proud hard working people. The people stalin sent just did what they were told they didnt care about a good harvest. As such harvests dropped and thousands starved to death. Stalins repeated purges caused more deaths from his poor planning and paranoia . Like his aircraft could have been better sooner, but new tech takes time stalin wanted immediate resualts disappointment meant immprisonment or death. Many of the best engineers were released from prison when they realised how far behide they were

    Too bad the book on April 1940 meeting where the generals explain to Stalin why they did not conquer Finland is not translated. The funniest explanation was that Finns had 50 cms of rubber on top of our bunkers so the ammunition ricocheted every time....that´s quite alot of rubber,man. ;)

    Tom Cruise's 4 million dollar P-51 "Kiss me Kate"

    This Mustang has a serial number of 44-12840 and was built in 1946. It was donated to the Civil Air Patrol unit and eventually ended up in a museum in Illinois. It was later completely restored by 1997 by Art Teeters and four years later was bought by Tom Cruise in 2001. He renamed it to Kiss Me Kate after his ex-wife, Kate Holmes.

    He gives rides to his mates (Bloody better!)

    Tom Cruise is such a jackass he probably has to pay people to go for rides with him.

    I certainly wouldn't want to be trapped in a small space with him...You can guess he would do all sorts of aerobatics to make his passenger ill...And he plays it off as nothing.
    In Australia he is simply known as a dick. When he was married to Nicole he would come to Australia on the regular...and hang out at pubs (bars) and hang out with his Aussie "mates"...more than once he pissed off patrons (who didn't know or care who he was) and they took a swing at him...Haha!

    "come ere you little c##t!" - Haha...

    I can believe their doing a topgun sequel. From the trailer it looks like he's in a f18 as there's no more f14s left in service. I still think gooses death was bunk one of the things about the ejection system was to eleminate such accidents that happened on other aircraft. The explosive canopy charge was to throw the canopy a hundred feet and the ejection seats fired in an angle to avoid the canopy if it went straight up. I'm really excited my nephew who moved to Austrailia is visiting for like three weeks with his wife who's expecting their first baby. They were suppose to land at 7:30 am but something happen at the airport and they got bumped to a later flight and now will land at LAX at 5:30 pm. Hope they have a good flight over
    The didn't land till 6:50 and didn't make it to the house till almost nine and we got take out from a Mexican take out.
