Seattle Distinctives: Folk Life 2009

The Folk Life Festival is a time for adults to be children, and children to follow them closely with cameras. It's a time for some to indulge their latent pagan yearnings by dressing in dinge and dancing to strange rhythms; still others gratify certain childhood remembrances of things past and strip down to their underwear and run through a fountain (please read to the end for the payoff on that line). Whatever your thing is, be sure that you may flaunt it unashamedly at the Seattle Folk Life Festival.

The trip could not have started off any better, and of course by that I mean that we got free parking.

Why so glum? Jessica was sure that we would be towed, and if not that we were at least doing something illegal. I maintained no way—if a bank is not open then their parking is free game. Yes the tow sign is there, I do not deny that, but it is only there to scare people during business hours. In the end my car was exactly where we left it: one point me.

This is a family band, can you dig that? Haven't there been enough made for TV movies and blurbs of brother-slaying-family in the local section of the paper that parents have learned not to do this kind of a thing to a poor, unassuming child? Apparently not.

Next we spent some time at the fountain—a Folk Life must for anybody who is anybody. I am very proud to say that I have never actually ran around in the fountain and that all these years I have only been a voyeur (maybe I mucked around in it when I was a child, but I don't count my childhood as I was so dumb back then compared to what I am now that I can hardly stand it and refuse to hold those things against myself).

First up we have Free Spirit Hippie Lady:

If you haven't seen her or someone like her running through the fountain at FL then clearly you've never been to FL—if you insist that you haven't then get your peepers checked and let me know the result. Hippie Lady is a FL must, and she always has an all too eager boy toy to share in the fun...lucky them.

Next is Guy Pretending To Get His Kid Wet:

This guy did a particularly bad job and got his child and himself totally drenched. Must be a newbie.

Next we have Way Over-Prepared Guy:

He clearly has been working out in anticipation for this day. He showed up in swimming trunks and he isn't eight—he has negated everything he was working for by tipping his hand and showing how excited he was for this opportunity to flaunt himself. Fail.

Finally we have Cutest Kid of the Day:

Usually it's a baby in a diaper running around with the glee of someone who has just won the lottery, so I called that out to Jess beforehand. But I was wrong. The three-quarter length overalls are what put this child over the top.

Also extra bonus points because from behind the kid looks like Mickey Rourke from
The Wrestler.

I really do wonder how many men think I'm some kind of a psycho because I let, and even encouraged, my wife to go up and hug this stranger:

It helps that I could have snapped him like a twig, and who could hate that pretty boy face? She probably liked him because he reminded her of Zac Efron.

Look at that freaking dread. Did you see it? Ok, that's all I wanted was just for you to see it. Freaky...

So this hillbilly looking freak show band from Olympia called
Hail Seizure had this chick who was just there to dance to their freaky-ass music. Weird huh?

Can't you tell that I was having the time of my life?

I was only mad because we had to wait about 15 minutes for a Caribbean chicken thigh while my Philly Cheese steak got cold.

And finally, the pay off. Here is what you all really came to see. I think that in so many ways it defies description, so I will just let it speak for itself:

The one resounding thought for the day: Thank you Jesus that you invented cameras, especially digital ones.

This is the best thing ever. That last guy looks like a chick from the waist down from behind.

Good work, JD.

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.

Depending on what your destination is and how long you plan on making your trip for, the airfare may be the priciest expense. Because of this, finding a great deal on the airfare becomes extremely important. The more money you are able to save on the plane tickets, the more money you will be able to use toward your actual vacation.

When it comes to purchasing your airline tickets, the sooner the better. This goes for basically anywhere you plan on traveling. When you purchase a ticket sooner, lets say several months before the trip, there will be less of a demand, which will drive the price of the ticket down. However, on the flip side, as the day of the desired flight approaches, the flight's seats will begin to fill up. As fewer and few seats become available, the higher the demand will be, which will drive the price up. Booking the flight in as far advance as you can may save you hundreds of dollars in the long run.

Flying during the middle of the week is generally the cheapest time to fly. Fewer people travel during mid week than on Friday through Sunday. If at all possible, fly out on a Tuesday or Wednesday. You may actually find prices significantly less expensive on the Wednesday than the Sunday of the same week.

Looking for airfare online will probably be your best be at securing the cheapest possible flight price. There are multiple booking agencies which specialize in finding the cheapest airfare. However, to save time, go to, which offers a comprehensive flight search option. Bing will search other travel sites (Expedia, Priceline, Hotwire, etc.) and display the cheapest flight form each site. From here you will be able to decide which website offers the best deal.

Students can often find discounted airfare by visiting This is the Student Travel Association, and it can sometimes find less expensive airfare for the traveling student. This isn't always the case, but it doesn't hurt to look.

Всем привет!

Недавно перед мной встала задача, куда деть накопишиеся [b]европоддоны[/b], или еще их называют [b]Паллеты[/b],
[b]Поддоны[/b], [b]Европаллет[/b]ы Размеры 800*1200, 1000*1200- Это [u]Тара Пром назначения[/u].
Немного предистории.
Сам я тружусь кладовщиком на складе. Нам приходит много продукции на [b]Европоддонах[/b],
товар продаем а поддоны остаются, у нас возник вопрос куда их девать.
Раньше мы их выкидывали.
Потом я узнал, что за поддоны можно получить деньги.
Начал звонить по фирмам везде были цены дешевые,
потом приятели мне подсказали, что в Челябинске есть такая Компания "[b]Уралсклад[/b]",
около 10 лет на Рынке Промышленной Тары с прекрасной репутацией.
Я нашел их сайт в интернет - [url=][/url] и позвонил по тел. +7(351) 233-07-14.
Буквально через час подъехал их представитель, Авто с Логотипом "[url=]Поддоны Челябинск[/url]".
Цены закупочные оказались самые высокие в г. Челябинске.
Все цивилизовано грузчики загрузили [b]Паллеты[/b] ешё и лом поддонов купили, расчитались на месте наличными.
Про другие фирмы я узнавал либо Цены низкие, либо Бракуют много, да и денег от них не дождешься.

Так что если у вас завалялись [b]европоддоны[/b], не торопитесь их выбрасывать, лучше обменяйте их на деньги.

Playing bingo needs more than luck or skills and techniques, contrary to what most believe. Bingo, just like any game of chance, comes with rules and regulations that players should observe. Being a player comes with responsibilities and etiquette.

Winning the Game

The moment you figured out you won, you must immediately yell BINGO, and it should be loud enough for the floor walker to hear. The pot money shall be given to the winner once their winning card is confirmed. Well, in winning or once you know you just won, the most important thing is that you shout the winning word BEFORE the time elapses. If the game proceeds and the next number is mentioned and you failed to shout "Bingo", your winning card is disqualified. Therefore, this is the rule you must know.

There may be cases when there are two winners, and in this case the pot money shall be divided equally among the winners. Supposing there are two winning cards, the two winners will share half the prize money.

Bingo Game Rules

Bingo rules are basically the same no matter in which Online Bingo hall you play. But still it's good if you know these rules by heart. If it is your first try, then ask for handouts and inquire from pros regarding the game rules. Nonetheless, the ideal thing to do if you have questions is to ask the floor walker and not the person seated beside you. You should clarify things and doubts before the game starts because asking too many questions as the game proceeds could well distract you. This guideline also applies to those who are newcomers at casinos, those who play roulette for the first time.

Bingo halls demand an age limit of 18 years old. If you are below this age, you are prohibited to play. Some bingo houses ban alcohol inside, so players aren't supposed to take liquor nor drink it inside the venue. Smoking may also be restricted inside the venue, as there are designated smoking sections.

Take note that some Bingo houses don't allow food but some do, so it basically depends on the venue. Policies vary among different venues. For instance, some bingo halls allow reservation of cards, while others don't allow it. Some allow people to leave the venue in the middle of the game, others forbid it. But there are general policies observed in all bingo houses, such as disqualification of tampered bingo cards. There is no way you can get away with a tampered card because the walkers are adept at identifying authentic cards from tampered ones. You could be banned from a bingo establishment if proven liable of tampering a card. Hence, you should play honestly.

Interestingly, some venues offer special bingo games for kids although some halls don't allow players to have companions while playing. Suppose you bring kids with you, don't let them run around the venue and bother other gamers. They should behave well whilst you play and the game proceeds. Play quietly and don't recite the numbers you desperately want to come off because you'll be much of a disturbance if you do. Decorous playing is expectant of all players, even those who play roulette at casinos. Also, having a valid identification is important because you don't know you might win and need to present credentials.
