for your holiday shopping pleasure...

If you are looking for some small heavy duty storage options, this might just be right.  I tried the "best offer" option and got them for $75 (he wouldn't go any lower).  This is the best price I have found on ebay for ammo cans (with free shipping) and the ones I received were in much better than expected shape considering they are designated Grade 2.  I ordered on Saturday...they shipped on Monday...and I got them at 1PM today.  He must get these in huge lots at government auction for pennies on the dollar.  I checked with UPS and discovered the shipping cost with a commercial UPS discount is $48.89 for a 48lb box that is 12" x 12" x 30".  That means he made $3.26 per ammo can.  One has to wonder how much the military-industrial complex paid for these brand new.  63,75,48,0,B

Jobs' biological father was in fact from Syria - but hardly your "typical" refugee. Abdulfattah "John" Jandali was born into a Muslim household and grew up in Homs, Syria - the son of a self made millionaire. Jandali came to the US to pursue a PhD in political science from the University of Wisconsin. Jobs' biological mother was Jandali's teaching assistant - Joanne Carole Schieble, a Catholic of German descent who grew up on a farm in Wisconsin. Schieble's father did not approve of his daughter's relationship with Jandali at the time and forbade her to marry him. Only 23 years old, unwed, Catholic, and pregnant - she gave the baby up for adoption. Had the "right to choose" immoral tide existed and abortion been heavily promoted in 1954, Steve Jobs most likely would have never been born.  How many brilliant innovators have been lost to the 50+ million abortions that have occurred in this country since Jobs was allowed to live?  52,64,40,0,C

While running errands yesterday, I decided to try my luck at a little coin roll hunting.  Stopped by my bank and swapped $100 of paper for 200 half dollar coins.  Went through the rolls this morning and found a wide variety right down to 1971 (pay dirt starts at 1970).  1965 - 1970 is 40% silver...1964 and earlier is 90% silver.  Oh well...not out any money and now I have 5 pounds of pocket change.  Pehaps I'll give it another shot next time I go to town.  42,56,50,0,W
