10 minutes. Cool. Take

Sticky Flour Spray

affects their digestive tracts.

The Different Terms!!!!!!
• A Pure Bred Rabbit= A Rabbit of any one breed, that has never been crossed with another breed.
• A Cross breed= Can be 2 perfect pure bred rabbits, or two mutts, if they are not from the same breed they are Crossbred.
• Pure bred is pronounced pure bread. Like the loaf of bread.
• Pure breed, is pronounced like creed or seed.
• Rabbit breeders sometimes put a Tattoo in a rabbits Left ear for Identification, the right ear is reserved for Registration numbers.
• A Pedigree is only a chart, like a birth certificate, basically only a pure bred has one, but any animal can have one.
• Leg’s are won at shows, even though you have a Grand Champion, You can still win legs for best of show, best of breed etc.
• The more legs, the more value.
• To become a registered rabbit, first-you need a pedigree, and a A.R.B.A. Card, both in your name.
and then you will need an A.R.B.A. Judge for your breed.
• If it meets ALL the SOP for that breed, the judge will Tattoo the right ear, and your rabbit will be on record at A.R.B.A. and worth considerately more.
• A Grand Champ is from a show, where many rabbits have been shown and then re-shown, until only one is left.
• I hope this helps, Tim Herron, Herron Farms Dawsonville Ga. 30534

Simply because, we have taken the meaning away from it. And turned it into "The beginning of Summer" and more.
All of my Uncle's were in the sevice, and most in Nam, Korea and other God forsaken place's, several were shot, Most of my Great uncle's were in The Big war, a few dident make it. My Mother was in the RAF, My Dad the Air Force, My Brothers were in, My Son is in the 101st. and on this Day as many others, I take a deep Breath, And say THANK YOU.

I swear, I am thinking about forming an Organization for those of us, that dont want to be "forced" into paying, to be included in the Comunity "list" I cant help but feel like this like strong are tacktics.
Either you pay money to us, of we wont tell people that call, that you and or your company even exist.
Now this is a "non-profit" organization. One that we pay dearly with our tax's to even exist.
so why then, if a person calls them, they will not tell you of a company or person in the comunity that is doing what you need done. has what you need, or even exists, unless they are a "PAID" member of the local CCC ?
This reminds me of the Unions up North, If you dont pay to Join them and pay the dues, you dont work. Period.
I would say I dont mind a small fee, but the truth is I do. Between the
AND MANY MORE TAX'S, HIDDEN AS "FEES"
By the time you get done you have got to hire a person just for the Tax's, another for all the fee's and leagel work.
Can you tell, The CCC has just rubbed me the wrong way? LOL

A Beer Story Explains US Taxes...
In A Way Even A Democrat Should Understand
Suppose that every day, ten men go out for beer and the bill for all ten comes to $100. If they paid their bill the way we pay our taxes, it would go something like this:
The first four men (the poorest) would pay nothing.
The fifth would pay $1.
The sixth would pay $3.
The seventh would pay $7.
The eighth would pay $12.
The ninth would pay $18.
The tenth man (the richest) would pay $59.
So, that’s what they decided to do. The ten men drank in the bar every day and seemed quite happy with the arrangement, until one day, the owner threw them a curve. ‘Since you are all such good customers, he said, ‘I’m going to reduce the cost of your daily beer by $20. Drinks for the ten now cost just $80.
The group still wanted to pay their bill the way we pay our taxes so the first four men were unaffected. They would still drink for free. But what about the other six men – the paying customers? How could they divide the $20 windfall so that everyone would get his ‘fair share?’ They realized that $20 divided by six is $3.33. But if they subtracted that from everybody’s share, then the fifth man and the sixth man would each end up being paid to drink his beer. So, the bar owner suggested that it would be fair to reduce each man’s bill by roughly the same amount, and he proceeded to work out the amounts each should pay.
The fifth man, like the first four, now paid nothing (100% savings).
The sixth now paid $2 instead of $3 (33%savings).
The seventh now pay $5 instead of $7 (28%savings).
The eighth now paid $9 instead of $12 (25% savings).
The ninth now paid $14 instead of $18 (22% savings).
The tenth now paid $49 instead of $59 (16% savings).
Each of the six was better off than before. And the first four continued to drink for free. But once outside the restaurant, the men began to compare their savings.
‘I only got a dollar out of the $20,’declared the sixth man. He pointed to the tenth man,’ but he got $10!’
‘Yeah, that’s right,’ exclaimed the fifth man. ‘I only saved a dollar, too. It’s unfair that he got ten times more than I!’
‘That’s true!!’ shouted the seventh man. ‘Why should he get $10 back when I got only two? The wealthy get all the breaks!’
‘Wait a minute,’ yelled the first four men in unison. ‘We didn’t get anything at all. The system exploits the poor!’
The nine men surrounded the tenth and beat him up.
The next night the tenth man didn’t show up for drinks, so the nine sat down and had beers without him. But when it came time to pay the bill, they discovered something important. They didn’t have enough money between all of them for even half of the bill!
And that, boys and girls, journalists and college professors, is how our tax system works. The people who pay the highest taxes get the most benefit from a tax reduction. Tax them too much, attack them for being wealthy, and they just may not show up anymore. In fact, they might start drinking overseas where the atmosphere is somewhat friendlier.
