    Bc assessment 2019

    To those who mentioned your folks being in rough shape or having passed away you have my condolences. My father recently passed away and it's been really rough. So now we're dealing with my dad's estate and the assessment for one of his properties came in and well it seems a little strange. I changed around a few of the figures but they're all proportional to what they really are. 2018 Total $951,000 Land $522,500 Buildings $428,500 Previous year $826,250 Land $263,500 Buildings $562,750 My question is how does the value of the buildings drop 24%, while the value of the land increases nearly 100%? Given there was no damage to any buildings and no oil or gold was discovered on the land. Is this normal?

    Rate The Last Movie You Saw - 2

    The Mule 7/10 Got to hand it to Clint Eastwood, he still can act his ass off at 88 years old. He plays a senior citizen who starts running drugs inter-state for a Mexican cartel. I was kind of hoping for another "Gran Torino" and The Mule is not that but it's pretty good and worth a look. Bradley Cooper and Michael Pena gave their usual solid performances, but this movie was all Clint.

    CDC Celebrity Dead Pool 2018

    Oh my God it's my own personal Steve Harvey moment. This is what happens when you calculate the totals at 4 am when you can't sleep. @smithers joe and @canuckpuckluck15 both had 5 stiffs each. So we have a tie. Tie breaker rule dictates the winner will be the one with the lowest collective ages of death. The breakdown is as follows : canuckpuckluck15 - Billy Graham 99, George Bush Sr. 94, Stan Lee 95, Stephen Hawking 76, Devin Lima 41 total ages = 405 years smithers joe - Burt Reynolds 82, George Bush Sr. 94, Barbara Bush 92, Nanette Fabrey 97, Billy Graham 99 total ages = 464 years So the winner of the CDC Celebrity Dead pool 2018 is @canuckpuckluck15 My apologies to @smithers joe . I'll be rewarding you with a prize anyway. I think being runner up in a tie breaker is worth a Cliff Ronning rookie card.

    CDC Celebrity Dead Pool 2019

    CDC Celebrity Dead Pool 2019 Pick 20 famous people you think might die in 2019. Deaths must be confirmed by a web link. In case of a tie, the winner will be the one with the lowest collective ages (of death). Do not edit your submission (beyond it's original submission date) or it will be disqualified. Make your submissions anytime from today through 2019. Deaths before your submission date will not count. Note This is a Celebrity Dead Pool. You cannot simply select people just because they are old. They must be famous for something other then being old. People up for state sponsored execution (death row) and hostages are excluded. Important note - You may not kill anyone on your list or your entry will be disqualified. This year's winner will be awarded a Pavel Bure Upper Deck rookie card. The card is pictured below. The card is in mint condition.  Once the contest closes the winner will be contacted via private message on CDC and the card will be shipped wherever they like. Figured I'd give a heads up to last year's participants. @Bill Sikes @gurn @goalie13 @McIlhargey the Lesser @canuckpuckluck15 @Salacious Crumb @smithers joe @Cerridwen @Shift-4 Link to last year's pool  One last note. I seem to be incapable of making a status update on this site. If a few of you wouldn't mind, maybe make a few status updates informing people of the game and the prize available over the next week or so and maybe we can get some more participants this year. Cheers Futz

    Making new friends as an adult

    There's a website called www.meetup.com that brings people together with similar interests. Can't tell you much else about it, but it might be worth a look. I gave it a quick look and punched in Edinburgh and lots of gatherings were listed.

    Kabul wedding hall blast kills 43 people

    Very little is mentioned about the violence in Afghanistan these days. Sadly it is the worst it has been in years. Stories like the one posted happen often. Be glad we get to live in Canada.

    The Case of the Missing Saudi Journalist

    Yup, you called it Hip. ........... Trump says reports that CIA has tied Saudi prince to Khashoggi murder are 'premature' President Donald Trump said late Saturday that it's "too early" to say whether Saudi Prince Mohammed bin Salman was behind the killing of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi, and described multiple news reports saying the CIA has concluded the crown prince was directly involved as “premature.” The president said that the U.S. government will complete a “full report” by Tuesday. He denied reports saying that the CIA has concluded that the crown prince, known as MBS, ordered the killing. "They haven’t accessed anything yet -- it’s too early,” Trump said. “That was a very premature report." "But that’s possible,” he added. “We’re gonna see.” The president went on to say without further explanation that “in the meantime we are doing things to some people who we know for a fact were involved, and we’re going to be very tough on a lot pf people.” The comments came as Trump toured the damage from wildfires that devastated Malibu, California, after receiving an update on the Khashoggi investigation from CIA Director Gina Haspel and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo aboard Air Force One. Trump's comments come in the wake of several media outlets' reports Friday that CIA officials said they were highly confident that 15 Saudi agents flew to Istanbul in government aircraft at the orders of Salman to kill Khashoggi inside the Saudi consulate. The Washington Post was the first news company to report on the alleged ties to the prince. Earlier on Saturday, before heading to California, Trump spoke to reporters about the Khashoggi murder. “As of this moment, we were told he had not played a role," the president added, referring to the Saudi prince. "We’re going to see what they have to say.” On Saturday afternoon, a spokeswoman for the State Department said the Trump administration is determined to hold Khashoggi's killers accountable, but had not made a "final conclusion" on his death. "Recent reports indicating that the U.S. government has made a final conclusion are inaccurate. There remain numerous unanswered questions with respect to the murder of Mr. Khashoggi," said Heather Nauert, the department spokeswoman. "The State Department will continue to seek all relevant facts." She added that the U.S. will continue to investigate the murder while "maintaining the important strategic relationship between the United States and Saudi Arabia." Khashoggi was killed Oct. 2 in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, where he went to pick up documents that he needed to marry his fiancee, who lives in the Turkish city. An intercepted phone call between Khashoggi and the Saudi prince’s brother, Khalid bin Salman, was among the evidence that helped the CIA arrive at its conclusion, the Post reported. In the call, Khalid bin Salman, who is the Saudi ambassador to the United States, told Khashoggi that he should go to Istanbul for the documents and assured him that it would be safe to do so, the paper reported. Though it’s unclear if Khalid bin Salman was involved in the plan, it was Mohammed bin Salman who told him to make the call, The Post reported, citing people familiar with the matter who could only speak on the condition of anonymity. Fatimah Baeshen, a spokeswoman for the Saudi embassy in Washington, D.C., denied the allegations that Khalid bin Salman spoke about going to Turkey and called the CIA assessment “false,” according to the Post. The Post article was published the same day as a funeral service for the slain journalist at Istanbul’s Fatih Mosque, more than a month after he was killed on Oct. 2. Earlier this week, the Trump administration sanctioned 17 Saudi officials for their alleged involvement in the killing of Khashoggi, who was a Washington Post columnist. Vice President Mike Pence declined to comment on “classified information” early Saturday morning during a trip to Papua New Guinea, but also did not seek to refute the reporting of the CIA’s conclusions. The vice president did, however, condemn the murder and said: “We are going to follow the facts.” “The murder of Jamal Khashoggi was an atrocity. It was also an affront to a free and independent press and the United States is determined to hold all of those accountable who are responsible for that murder,” Pence said. He also noted that the U.S. wants to find a way to preserve a “strong and historic partnership” with Saudi Arabia. https://www.yahoo.com/gma/president-trump-receives-cia-briefing-jamal-khashoggi-murder-181504656--abc-news-topstories.html
