There is also this disturbing news story unfolding in Yemen that needs direct attention by us all who believe in freedom and peace. ... YC20150326

Another legend has passed on so that we have only memories and records to remember his greatness and a song that will reverberate for a long, long time,
"When A Man Loves A Woman." Ah, I bet Percy Sledge is singing with the best now with some fiddles and drums and banjos and some good ol' Wild Turkey:))) ... vw&index=2

We, PaladinWarriors, extend our grief and prayers of hope to all those good people in Nepal whose lives have been shattered by the devastating earthquake and to those who were climbing the great Mount Everest in the Himalayan Mountains. Due west of this mountain range is another less renowned place of glacier beauty and high mountains nearly impassable. It is, I believe, the source of the mystical and historic River Ganges that flows through India. Here is a link to it ...
A Question of Balance was an old Moody Blues album to help bring some beauty into ugliness, light into darkness, life into despair.

It is Kentucky Derby Day in Louisville, Kentucky and Churchill Downs. Kind of like the herald of Spring in the USA.
Here is a link to the Derby.

My "trifecta" is Bolo to win, Materiality to place, and War Story to show (1st, 2nd, & 3rd respectively).

Live TV coverage begins at 4:00 PM EDT on NBC.

I didn't fare well :lol:
The Kentucky Derby winner was American Pharoah, Firing Line was second, and Dortmund came in third.
MIne: Bolo finished 12th, Materiality finished 6th, and War Story finished 16th :oops:
the Run for the Roses :mrgreen:

Who ‘Belongs’ In The Fox News GOP Debate?

1. Trump 23.4%
2. Bush 12.0%
3. Walker 10.2%
4. Huckabee 6.6%
5. Carson %5.8%
6. Cruz 5.4%

"To determine the participants, Fox averaged together five national polls from Fox, Bloomberg, CBS, Monmouth and Quinnipiac.
And that methodology has had political scientists up in arms. The Marist Institute for Public Opinion suspended polling this week because it was worried polls were being used to make too fine of distinctions between candidates."
