Ahh a shot will fix you right up, that is unless you want to keep the rash for sentimental reasons.

actually the records of the mustang ranch were public record, congress did make mention that it was dishonorable (interesting phrase for a congressman to use) for the United States government to own a whorehouse.

P.S. The furnishings and building (including the sign) were sold at a profit also.
That was my original post.........

Funny how ones tolerance for noise lessens as one "ages" ......
I stand at these gas pumps, and there is either very annoying music blasting
out of a speaker OR a TV screen in the pump (also very loud) with , well , just
nonsense , on a continuous loop.
What genius thought THIS was a good idea ?

( actually, I have NEVER had ANY shopping experience heightened by canned
music coming out of store speakers. )
Last fall, in a Staples, I did complain to the manager, he said the owner sets the
music and volume.I said "well,I'm leaving-there is a Kinko's a block away"

just wanted to see if I could get an "amen" out of this congregation.
the worlds too noisy as it is.sheeesh. enough already.

Amen, Allan.

I work part time at the LHS as a manager; closing the store on 3 nights, and open and close on Sundays. Yesterday as I was opening, I turned on the stores satellite radio - which was on a nice classic jazz/swing music station. That station stayed on all day, at a nice background volume. When we started closing the store, one of the employees changed the radio to a hard rock station and cranked up the volume. I changed the radio back to the jazz station and turned down the volume before that employee could clock out. When I go to work tomorrow, the radio will probably be set on a classic rock station, which most of us at the store like.
