In other “RHONJ” doings

Filed under: solar lighting — Tags: , — solaroutdoorlight @ 7:04 am

There are some things I wish I could forget ever having seen. One of them was the two patches of flesh (and some underlying fat) that a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon removed from Jacqueline Laurita’s tummy, glimpsed in Sunday night’s episode. One hunk of the trimmed belly fat even sported a heart tattoo. If you were zipping around the channels and stopped at that sight, you might have thought you were watching “Forensic Files,” not “The Real Housewives of New Jersey.”

“How did you all handle seeing my cutlets on the table during surgery?” Jac asked in her cast blog, which she posted in the wee hours of Monday morning.

Answer: Not well, Jac.

She actually addressed the tummy tuck (and neck lift she got at the same time) at length in that blog post:

“My decision to get a tummy tuck was easy. I always wanted one since I gave birth to Nicholas and lost all of my baby weight. My body just didn’t bounce back this time like it did in the past. Dieting and exercising couldn’t fix that mess you saw. It looked like an elephant leg. LOL! It didn’t matter how beautiful my husband, family, or friends told me I was. I wasn’t feeling it. That skin had to go, and so did that tattoo! It was cute because inside the heart was the letter “C” on top of, and connecting to, a cursive letter “L”. I had that tattoo made for my husband while we were engaged. Well…that’s ONE way to get rid of a tattoo! LOL!”

And then she ventured into the realm of Way Too Much Information:

“Before my tummy tuck, I always tricked my husband with sexy mood lighting and cute, short lingerie dresses that I could lift up the bottom and pull my boobies out of the top, trying to be sexy, while secretly hiding my mid-section. He had no idea that mess was there. I hid it well. I was embarrassed of it. Now you know why! It’s gone now, so who cares.They are called “solar” panels or solar module because most of the time, the most powerful source of light available is the Sun.”

Her husband “had no idea that mess was there.” But now he, and the world, have seen that hidden zone up close.

On a brighter note, since the surgery was in California, Jac — and RHONJ fans — got to see her daughter, Ashlee Holmes again. In New Jersey, she seemed eternally bratty, spoiled and ungrateful. But in this episode, Ashlee not only looked beautiful, but she seemed so much more mature — more so than her mother, actually, which Jacqueline even acknowledged, after Ashlee urged her mom, in vain, not to have a shot of tequila the night before surgery: “I feel like it’s role reversal. It’s like she’s being the responsible one and I’m on spring break,” Jac said.

Clearly, it was easier for Ashlee to grow up once she left the Garden State — and RHONJ. (In her latest cast blog, Jac wrote that Ashlee “is actually staying with us in New Jersey for awhile, because she decided to go to makeup school in New York.” Let’s just hope the old Ashlee won’t re-emerge.

One other Laurita-related note. Back home in Franklin Lakes, poor little C.J.Know about led high bay conversion kit and Bi-xenon HID kit. said he wasn’t feeling good. He also felt hot to the touch, according to his dad, Chris Laurita – a diagnosis that was confirmed by his sister, Caroline Manzo,The world’s largest independent online retailer for solar lighting, street lights & outdoor lighting fixtures. who then said she knew what was wrong with C.J. He had strep. Unless I heard wrong, Caroline said she could “smell it on his breath.” (Who needs thermometers or throat-cultures when Dr. Manzo is in the house?)

In other “RHONJ” doings:

They showed more of the conversations that we’d seen last week between the Lauritas and the Giudices at The Brick House in Wyckoff. The ever-composed Chris Laurita didn’t seem to react when Juicy Joe reiterated his (ignorant) views on autism. When the women, after having a heart-to-heart, rejoined the men at a table, Jac apologized to Juicy for what she’d said about his having cheated on Teresa. “I’ve forgotten it already. I really have,” said Juicy, whom we now know had far more important things to worry (and think) about.

Gia Giudice and Uncle Joe Gorga, her godfather, had a heart-to-heart, too. “Didn’t you realize that when you and my mom were tit for tat, it distanced everyone?” Gia asked. It sounded like a scripted line, but there was, of course, much truth behind it.

A great starter project

During the Civil War, Hostetter’s Stomach Bitters were sold to Union soldiers heading south to the battlefields. They were touted as a “positive protective against the fatal maladies of the Southern swamps and the poisonous tendency of the impure rivers and bayous.” The stuff was shipped west, too, where miners suffered their own spates of dysentery.

In Tonopah, Nev., William Peck discovered that Hostetter’s relieved his aches and pains, too.Shop funtional and elegant solar lights, outdoor solar lighting, solar garden lights, path lights and decorative solar lights. Evidently, he consumed about 10,000 bottles at the turn of the last century. It’s no wonder, because, when analyzed, Hostetter’s was 90-percent alcohol and 10-percent opium. We believe he consumed this much because he built an entire house out of Hostetter’s bottles and concrete.

Building with bottles originated in the deserts, where so many mining towns rose up amid Spartan ecosystems. Miners’ tents were soon in tatters and they had to find a new building material because shipping lumber by mule train was quite expensive. Those who had not yet struck it rich were left out in the cold. Literally.

Mining towns, however, had one thing in abundance, as you might imagine: bottles. Bars did a roaring business — and so did the peddlers offering patent medicines. Bottles accumulated all over the place, so it was just a matter of time before they were pressed into service as building materials.

Fast forward to the present,Soli-lite provides the world with high-performance solar roadway and solar street lighting solutions. and an interest in bottle walls is rising again. Rather than being lugged to the recycling center, bottles can be reused in the garden. Think layering bottles, just like bricks, onto wet mortar.

A few things to consider if you want to work with bottles.

First, leave the labels on because they’ll be hidden by the mortar.

Second, collect bottles that are all roughly the same size. This is really helpful for newbies who are still learning this art. Similar-sized bottles stack cleanly and hold together better than do bottles of various sizes.

Third, use bottles of the same shape. The square shape of Hostetter’s bottles made them easy to stack without rolling. Rounded bottles mixed with square ones will be more challenging.

Fourth,Most modern headlight designs include Wholesale HID Kit. consider using bottles of the same color. Consider using all blue bottles or all green ones — or just amber beer bottles — for a powerful design statement.

While bottles were commonly used in Nevada for houses, walls might be a better option today. The shorter the wall, the more stable it remains.

A great starter project is creating a bench out of bottles using wood or a stone slab on top for a comfortable seat.

Consider how light shines through such walls in the morning and at sunset when the sun is low. Your wall, accordingly, could lighten up on cue for cocktail hour. Another option is to arrange your landscape lighting to illuminate the back of the bench or wall so the bottles glow all night long.

The best place to learn how to build stuff with recycled bottles is on YouTube. How-to videos there will help you get started. Consider a bottle wall for part of your greenhouse or solarium. Many folks fill their bottles with water and seal them before stacking into a wall for a low-cost thermal mass to keep a solar greenhouse warmer.

Reusing bottles in masonry is one of the most beautiful ways to avoid trips to the recycling center and limit expenditures at the home-improvement store.

“Blood Money” kicks

Filed under: LED Lamp — Tags: , — solaroutdoorlight @ 7:00 am

The apocalyptic hour of “Blood Money,” the final season premiere of AMC’s “Breaking Bad,” moves faster than entire seasons of this brilliant and diabolical series. The closing scene of the episode is the one fans have been waiting for for years, and one that would otherwise take this show another eight or 12 episodes to accomplish. (Neilsen reports that the final-season premiere averaged 5.9 million viewers on Sunday, almost double last year’s premiere slot. More details here.)
But remember, after “Blood Money,” only seven episodes remain, and “Breaking Bad” has a lot of business to tend to in those precious final hours. Season 5 part 2 is poised to be a breakneck finish for “Breaking Bad,” and a refusal to put its foot on the brake. But this speed doesn’t mean that series head Vince Gilligan and his writing team are merely dancing as fast as they can. “Blood Money” showcases “Breaking Bad” at its most carefully plotted and assembled — not to mention, inventively styled — as it digs deeply into the show’s mythology. (Don’t read further if you are not caught up on the series, as spoilers are ahead.)

off with the show’s most soul-searing cold open yet. In a flash forward, a bearded Walter White (Bryan Cranston) returns to his suburban home to retrieve the ricin he hid in a light fixture last season. His home is now empty and ravaged, grey and sickly, with the name HEISENBERG spray painted on the living room wall. The opener echoes that of season five, part 1, in which Walt, traveling under a pseudonym, reveals some seriously heavy weaponry in the trunk of his car. Putting these two timeline jumps together, we’re building toward an awful act of violence that likely won’t come until the series’ very end. Some haunting questions linger: Where are Skyler, Walt Jr. and — dear god — baby Holly? Who is the loose wire that Walt is going after, with the ricin and the gun?

Here’s what we did learn from the season premiere: Hank (Dean Norris) will be working to take down Walt, whose cancer is back, and Jesse (Aaron Paul) knows that Walt killed Gus’ (RIP) former henchman Mike but has no proof. This two-pronged setup will most certainly be the fulcrum of the final season, as both Hank and Jesse pursue any possible redemption for themselves.Most modern headlight designs include Wholesale HID Kit. And in the case of Jesse, it means getting out from under Walt’s thumb.

Though the bulk of this episode is all ominous portent — including “former business associate” Lydia’s unexpected appearance at the A1A car wash — and slow zooms (Hank’s stunned-senseless emergence from the bathroom), the fulcrum here is the final scene face-off between Walt and Hank. When Hank socks Walt behind the closed door of his garage, grabs him by the collar and spews, “It was you all along,” we can’t help but feel a potent spark of satisfaction as the whole bedrock of the show — a once-ordinary guy engineers a massive drug operation right under the nose of his DEA-agent brother-in-law — erupts. But then Walt says, “If you don’t know who I am, then maybe your best course would be to tread lightly,” and that moral blood-thirst curdles to dread.

A SERVING Newcastle police officer was accused yesterday of taking bribes and supplying a gun to former boxer Fortunato “Lucky” Gattellari.

NSW police confirmed that Senior Constable Mark Donohue is “subject to an ongoing departmental investigation”.

A spokesman said it would be inappropriate to comment further.

Giving evidence at the committal hearing of his former benefactor, Ron Medich, Gattellari said that, in 2010, he paid $2500 in cash to the police officer for a pistol.

What kind of officer would do that?” Winston Terracini, SC, for Mr Medich, asked.

“The kind who took bribes from Mr Medich,” said Gattellari, who added that the bribes were over deals involving Aboriginal land.

The court heard that the gun Constable Donohue provided was for Haissam Safetli, who was recently sentenced to six years’ jail for his role in the execution-style shooting of Michael McGurk.

The Scottish-born businessman was murdered in his car in front of his nine-year-old son in September 2009. Mr Medich,Shop funtional and elegant solar lights, outdoor solar lighting, solar garden lights, path lights and decorative solar lights.Soli-lite provides the world with high-performance solar roadway and solar street lighting solutions. a property tycoon, is alleged to have been the mastermind.

Gattellari, 63, said the gun he bought from Constable Donohue was not the murder weapon and was supplied after the killing of McGurk. He said he hid it in the back shelf of his office filing cabinet until Safetli came to get it.

When asked if he was concerned about what Safetli planned to do with it, Gattellari said: “Why should I be?”

The court heard “changing tyres” was the code Gattellari used for the murder. The former boxer was sentenced to seven years’ jail for his role in organising McGurk’s murder. He is now the Crown’s key witness.

Under cross-examination by Mr Terracini, Gattellari told Central Local Court that he didn’t keep records of his dealings on Mr Medich’s behalf because 90 per cent of them were illegal.

Gattellari was also questioned about his financial dealings with Queenslander Louie Gibson. Gattellari said he thought his friend was a “racing identity” rather than a drug dealer.

In 2008, Gibson was sentenced to 11 years’ jail for producing and trafficking the drug methylamphetamine.

The court also heard that hundreds of thousands of dollars, allegedly from Mr Medich’s investments in Gattellari’s electrical businesses, were handed over to Gattellari’s family without Mr Medich’s knowledge.
