Day 334 No Punkin Chunkin this year
filed lawsuit
Image by the past tends to disappear
The event, held for years on a succession of rural Sussex County farm fields, was to have moved to the same grounds that host Firefly Music Festival. After a volunteer filed a personal injury lawsuit in 2013 over an ATV accident at the 2011 Chunk, the farmer hosting it in Sussex County said he wouldn’t let it return to his property.

But the show must go on, So
they came up with Punkin Chunkin: Superchunk.
This was put together full of holes..
Here are some of the issues I found, Mythbusters style!

#1 They called a single wide trailer a double wide many times ~BUSTED~
#2 They said the moonshine still was copper when it was plastic or wood painted copper ~BUSTED~
#3 They said that moonshine was in the still but it was clearly Water ~Busted~
#4 They said the voting for who gets to blow up the van was up to the viewers but that part of the show aired at 10:00 PM, and the van was hit at what looked like high noon. ~BUSTED~
#5 the van was going to be blown up by a pumpkin trigger, but they ran a detonation cord to a safe zone and showed it on TV ~BUSTED~

I was not a fan this year guys! lets hope next year is better!

Taşkışla Building, İstanbul
filed lawsuit
Image by SALTOnline…

Taşkışla building was built between 1846-1852 by the British architect William James Smith and his headworker Istefan in Neo-Renaissance style. Used as the Military Hospital of the Medical School, it was employed to treat French soldiers during the Crimean War (1853-1856). Taşkışla was converted to military barracks in 1860, for the protection of the Dolmabahçe Palace. After the formation of the Turkish Republic, the building was assigned to the Ministery of Education. Renovated by Paul Bonatz and Emin Onat between 1943-1950, it became the Rectorate building and the Faculty of Architecture and Civil Engineering of İstanbul Technical University (İTU) in 1950. After İTU moved to the Ayazağa campus, converting the building into a hotel became a topic of debate. The government of the day rented the building to a firm for 49 years, to be used as a hotel. But after the lawsuit, filed by the academic staff, was won, the building was given back to İTU in 1989. In 1999 the building had another renovation and is currently being used as the Faculty of Architecture of İTU.

Texas Top Hands
filing lawsuits
Image by Princess Stand in the Rain

The Texas Top Hands, one of the state’s oldest continuously performing western-swing bands, debuted in 1945 with Clarence J. Sleepy Short on fiddle, George Edwin Knee-High Holley on string bass, Walter Kleypas on piano and accordion, and William Wayne Rusty Locke on steel guitar. Manager Johnny H. Curly Williams played acoustic guitar. The Top Hands had an early-morning spot on WOAI radio, which was at that time a 50,000-watt clear-channel station in San Antonio.

The group had performed since 1941 under the name Texas Tumbleweeds. Then Bob Symonds, the former manager of the Tumbleweeds, came home from a stint with the Marines in World War II. When he filed a lawsuit to reclaim his band name, the group changed its name over a weekend, appearing under the old name on Friday and showing up Monday morning as the Texas Top Hands, the name that they still retain.

They traveled to New York in 1946 to record for Savoy and to back singer–songwriter Red River Dave McEnery on his Continental recording sessions. With McEnery, the Top Hands made several film shorts in 1947. That year they also co-starred in a ground-breaking movie filmed near San Antonio. The film, Echo Ranch, departed from the usual Hollywood westerns of the day in that it used no artificial scenery but was shot in natural outdoor settings. San Antonians made up the entire cast. Longtime Top Hands manager Ray Sczepanik owns a copy of the film.

In 1949 the Top Hands began recording on their own label, Everstate, on which they subsequently produced more than fifty recordings. The first—Bandera Waltz by O. B. Easy Adams—became a regional smash and remains a dance hall classic. The lament rode for fifty-two weeks at the top of the Hillbilly Hit Parade on KMAC. Slim Whitman, Ernest Tubb, Rex Allen, Jimmy Wakely, Adolph Hofner,qv David Houston, and nine other performers have recorded the song.

Tired of seven-night-a-week performing, with the Top Hands and with a band of his own, Kleypas left the band in 1952. Rusty Locke then managed the band until 1955, when he formed his own group. That left Easy Adams as leader until 1979, when he suffered a heart attack. Ray Sczepanik replaced him and still led the band in 2009. Locke later rejoined and played with the group for several years.

The Top Hands backed Hank Williams at his last Texas concert, on December 22, 1952, at the Macdona Shooting Club, near San Antonio; Williams died a few days later. The Top Hands have opened for or backed other well-known singers such as Webb Pierce, Tex Ritter,qv Moe Bandy, Johnny Rodriguez, Jerry Lee Lewis, George Morgan, Jacky Ward, and Mel Tillis. During the early 1950s, while the band played over radio station KABC, Gene Autry, William Boyd (known as Hopalong Cassidy), Wild Bill Elliot, Chill Wills, and other movie stars appeared with the band.

The Top Hands became known throughout Texas for their many appearances at local festivals and rodeos. They were the only band to perform at the first Poteet Strawberry Festival in 1948. On April 1, 1997, Locke, age seventy-seven, returned to the festival, where he sang Milk Cow Blues and Westphalia Waltz. Other appearances include the State Fair of Texas in Dallas (1955), where the show was broadcast live. Again, the Top Hands were the only band to perform. They also appeared at the Southwestern Exposition and Livestock Showqv in Fort Worth, the Central Texas Fair in Temple, the Stompede and Rodeo in Bandera, Buccaneer Days in Corpus Christi; the Oil Show in Odessa, the Wool Show and Rodeo in San Angelo, the Stockman’s Ball in Laredo, the Peanut Festival in Floresville, the Watermelon Jubilee in Stockdale, the Horse Show and Fair in Junction, the rodeo in El Paso, and the Pecos Rodeo (where they were a regular act from 1950 to 1976). In their heyday they performed twenty-five to thirty evenings a month. Among notable Texans in their audiences, they entertained Allan Shivers, Beauford Jester, Bill Clements, and John Connally. Their road trip in early 1949 promoted the first San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo, at which they also performed. The band returned for the show’s thirty-fifth anniversary under the direction of Ray Sczepanik. In 1955 the Top Hands were selected to represent the Lone Star Brewery.

The Texas Top Hands were inducted into the Texas Western Swing Hall of Fame on May 9, 1992, in Austin. Former members of the band include Johnny Bush (drummer), Charlie Harris (guitarist), and Buck Buchanan (fiddler), all of whom later became members of Ray Price’s Cherokee Cowboy Band. The band had several releases on the Melco label in the mid-1960s and three for TNT in the early 1960s. In early 2003, Kleypas and Locke were the only two surviving members of the original band. Kleypas lived at Canyon Lake with his wife, Lucille, with whom he had celebrated more than sixty wedding anniversaries. Lucille is credited with naming the Top Hands. (A top hand is the best worker on a ranch.) Locke lived with his wife, Cora, in Kirby, a suburb of San Antonio, where he owned and operated a television repair shop. Both Kleypas and Locke still made occasional guest appearances.

That Was the Year That Was – 1969
filing lawsuits
Image by brizzle born and bred
1969 saw the Manson murders, the Stonewall riots, the Woodstock festival and man landing on the moon.

The Stonewall riots were a series of spontaneous, violent demonstrations by members of the gay community against a police raid that took place in the early morning hours of June 28, 1969, at the Stonewall Inn, located in the Greenwich Village neighborhood of Manhattan, New York City. They are widely considered to constitute the single most important event leading to the gay liberation movement and the modern fight for LGBT rights in the United States.

Charles Manson, who is serving a life sentence for nine murders committed in July and August of 1969 near Hollywood, California. Manson did not actually commit any of the murders, but orchestrated the killings. He was initially sentenced to death, but his sentence was commuted when California’s death penalty was overturned in 1972.

1969 On July 20th one of mans crowning achievements occurred when American Astronaut Neil Armstrong became the first human to set foot on the Moon and uttered the immortal words "That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind."

The British Army was sent into Northern Ireland on August 14, 1969 by the Wilson government as law and order had broken down and the population (mainly Catholics) and property were at grave risk. Between then and 1998 some 300,000 British troops served in Northern Ireland.

1969 – Up to three million people in Britain urgently need re-housing because they are living in damp, overcrowded slum conditions, according to housing charity Shelter.

The opposition to the war continued to increase with more and more attending anti war demonstrations and demanding that the US withdrew from Vietnam. The music came from groups including the Doors, Led Zeppelin, Janis Joplin and the Beatles and the most famous music festival of modern times "WOODSTOCK" took place on a New York Farm on August 15th to August 17th with more than 400,000 avid music fans attending to see the Who, Jimi Hendrix, Crosby Stills Nash and Young and others perform live. fashions reflected the anti war sentiment with military jackets adorned with peace signs, and other trends including long unkempt wild hair and headbands showed the feelings of anti establishment felt by the youth.

1969: Woodstock music festival

The Woodstock Festival was a three-day concert (which rolled into a fourth day) that involved lots of sex, drugs, and rock ‘n roll – plus a lot of mud. The Woodstock Music Festival of 1969 has become an icon of the 1960s hippie counterculture.

Thousands of young people are heading home after three days and nights of sex, drugs and rock and roll at the Woodstock music festival.

An estimated 400,000 youngsters turned up to hear big-name bands play in a field near the village of Bethel, New York state in what has become the largest rock concert of the decade.

About 186,000 tickets were sold so promoters anticipated that around 200,000 would turn up. But on Friday night, the flimsy fences and ticket barriers had come down and organisers announced the concert was free prompting thousands more to head for the concert.

Traffic jams eight miles long blocked off the area near White Lake, near Bethel, some 50 miles from the town of Woodstock.

Local police estimated a million people were on the road yesterday trying to get to Woodstock. They were overwhelmed by the numbers but were impressed by a good level of behaviour.

The festival’s chief medical officer, Dr William Abruzzi told Rolling Stone magazine: "These people are really beautiful. There has been no violence whatsoever which is really remarkable for a crowd of this size."

Those who made it to the makeshift venue were treated to performances by Janis Joplin, The Who, Grateful Dead, Canned Heat, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Jimi Hendrix, Joan Baez and Ravi Shankar.

Rainstorms failed to dampen the spirits of the revellers, many high on marijuana, some dancing naked in the now muddy fields.

The main organiser, 49-year-old dairy farmer Max Yasgur, who provided ,000 and 600 acres of his land, addressed the crowds on the last day of the event.

"You have proven something to the world… that half a million kids can get together for fun and music and have nothing but fun and music."

There were however two deaths – a teenager was killed by a tractor as he lay in his sleeping bag and another died from a drugs overdose.

Woodstock, a holiday centre and artists’ colony, had held an arts and music fair since 1906 but the 1969 Woodstock festival made the town world famous. The final cost to the four sponsors – John Roberts, Joel Rosenman, Artie Kornfeld and Michael Lang – was .4m.

A film of the concert was release the following year and Woodstock became synonymous with flower power, the hippie culture and anti-Vietnam war protests that dominated the 1970s.

The "Woodstock generation" look back on the event with nostalgia and an anniversary Woodstock festival was held in 1994.

But the second – highly commercialised – anniversary concert in July 1999 ended in riots, fires and at least eight allegations of rape.

Isle of Wight Festival 1969

The 1969 Isle of Wight Festival was held on 29–31 August 1969 at the English town of Wootton, on the Isle of Wight. The festival attracted an audience of approximately 150,000 to see acts including Bob Dylan, The Band, The Who, Free, Joe Cocker, the Bonzo Dog Band and The Moody Blues. It was the second of three music festivals held on the island between 1968 and 1970. Organised by Ronnie and Ray Foulk’s Fiery Creations, it became a legendary event, largely owing to the participation of Dylan, who had spent the previous three years in semi-retirement. The event was well managed, in comparison to the recent Woodstock Festival, and trouble-free.

The 1969 festival was considerably larger and more popular than the previous year’s. Dylan had been little heard of since his allegedly near-fatal motorcycle accident in July 1966. Shunning the Woodstock Festival, held near his home in upstate New York, Dylan was initially reluctant to perform his comeback show on the little-known Isle of Wight. After weeks of negotiations, the Foulk brothers showed him a short film of the island’s cultural and literary heritage; this appealed to Dylan’s artistic sensibilities, as he was enthusiastic about combining a family holiday with a live performance in Tennyson country.

Before the festival, Dylan and his fellow Woodstock residents The Band rehearsed at Forelands Farm in Bembridge, and were joined there by George Harrison, the only "outsider" to have visited him in his enclave in the Catskill Mountains. On Saturday, 30 August, the day before Dylan was to take the stage, Harrison’s fellow Beatles John Lennon and Ringo Starr arrived on the island, along with Keith Richards and Charlie Watts of the Rolling Stones, and Eric Clapton. Also seated in the sealed-off VIP area in front of the stage would be Beatle wives Pattie Harrison, Yoko Ono and Maureen Starkey, together with celebrities such as Liz Taylor, Richard Burton, Jane Fonda, Françoise Hardy, Roger Vadim, Syd Barrett, Donald Cammell, Elton John and others.

Lennon opined that Dylan’s performance was reasonable, though slightly flat; and that expectations were such that the audience was "waiting for Godot or Jesus". Clapton was mesmerised, however, having already been inspired back to blues and country, post-Cream, by Dylan’s change of musical direction and by The Band’s album Music From Big Pink. "Dylan was fantastic," Clapton later said. "He changed everything … The audience couldn’t understand it.
You had to be a musician to understand it." Another champion of both The Band and Dylan, Harrison wrote a country song inspired by the event and dedicated to Dylan, "Behind That Locked Door", released on his 1970 triple album All Things Must Pass. Folk singer Tom Paxton has referred to the "negative reaction in the British press" as "downright fabrications: like saying he had run off stage half-way through". Paxton also recalled: "I went with him and The Beatles to the farmhouse where he was clearly in a merry mood because he had felt it had gone so well … The Beatles had brought a test pressing of Abbey Road and we listened to it and had quite a party."

Death of a Rolling Stone

Once a Stone always a Stone? Or was guitarist Brian Jones an ex-Stone when he died on July 3 1969? It was Jones who set the Stones rolling with an ad inviting like-minded musicians to audition at the Bricklayers’ Arms, and he is credited with coming up with the band’s name when asked for one by a promoter. But a month before his death he had been edged out of the group because of his erratic behaviour and heavy drug use, his convictions for that use meaning he would be unable to participate in an upcoming tour of the USA.

Mystery still surrounds exactly how he came to die. Jones was found at the bottom of the pool at his house – Cotchford Farm – near Hartfield in East Sussex (bizarrely previously owned by A.A. Milne , and the setting for his Winnie the Pooh stories). His liver was found to be enlarged by substance and alcohol abuse, though tests showed he had a fairly small amount of alcohol in his bloodstream and no traces of drugs. The verdict of the subsequent inquest was death by misadventure. Brian Jones was just 27 when he died, though pictures of him taken near that time showed the bloated face of a man who looked much older.

For years rumours and allegations have put the case for his sudden death being murder at the hands of a man described as a builder doing work on the house. That man died in 1994. The files have recently been reopened.

The Beatles played their final gig atop 3 Savile Row, London

Throughout January 1969, director Michael Lindsay-Hogg (the man who shot the Paperback Writer/Rain and Hey Jude/Revolution promotional shorts) had been filming the dissolution of the biggest band in the world as they rehearsed and recorded the songs that would eventually appear on Let It Be.

The decision to move the production from the cavernous confines of Twickenham Studios to the intimate rooms of the new Apple offices at 3 Savile Row in central London was a wise one, immediately thawing the frosty atmosphere that had so far blighted the project. Beatles Press Officer, Derek Taylor: “I was glad when they came back to Apple and were inside the building again. There was a two or three-week period at the end of January when it was nice”.

A live concert had been suggested as a way to end the film and so it was that on January 30 The Beatles ascended the stairs at Apple HQ to play live together for the very last time. What followed remains one of the all-time greatest moments in pop culture.

Christmas at The Rock in the Rain

Beautiful Rockefeller Center in New York has one of the most amazing Christmas displays in the world. It’s famous, and always presents a majestic scene right in front of the ice skating rink.

As soon as the guards see me with a tripod, they come over and escort me away. Damn them! Actually – it’s not their fault – it’s the goddamed lawyers who feed off a tort-happy system. The tripod may trip someone, you see. And then they can file a law suit against the property owner. We increasingly live in a world where you have to second-guess the most natural of actions for fear of being looted by the organized wealth redistribution system of tort-happy lawyers.

Anyway, to spite them all, I kept coming back and setting up my tripod in a horrible rain until I got the shot. Let them try to arrest me some day – I’m obviously a real threat to society as a photographer. It’s amazing how hard we all have to work in the USA, land of the free, to be creative and capture beauty… just another reason I’m Coming to New Zealand, where there are no tort lawsuits!

We Should Understand Paxil Lawsuits

Generically sold as paroxetine, Paxil is a selective serotinin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) and has been used since its release in 1992 to treat depression. Recently, Paxil is a member of drugs known as selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors, or “SSRI” that is manufactured by the large pharmaceutical company GlaxoSmithKline.

Pregnant women who take Paxil during their first trimester increase the risk their babies will be born with birth defects. It has also been discovered that GlaxoSmithKline may have hidden dangerous facts about this drug and allegedly misrepresented data on prescribing Paxil to children.

With studies in the past decade showing an increased risk of certain birth defects for mothers taking Paxil during pregnancy, thousands of families have now contacted a Paxil Lawyer to discuss their legal options for a Paxil Lawsuit.

Paxil side effects such as birth defects, heart birth defects, and Paxil-induced deaths are frequenlty named in many lawsuits. However, most of those lawsuits are quietly dealt with, as plaintiffs and GlaxoSmithKline’s corporate attorneys negotiate settlements, the results of which remain undisclosed.

Some of the side effects associated with taking Paxil are shared by other SSRI antidepressants. Headaches, tremors, nervousness, nausea, diarreah, dry mouth, changes in appetite, insomnia, fatigue, impotence, and decreased libido are common side effects present in other SSRI medications.

Paxil induced cardiac-related birth defects in babies born to Paxil using mothers and, most startlingly, the tendency (especially in young adults taking Paxil) toward suicidal thoughts and, in some unfortunate cases, actions.

Paxil lawsuit attorneys are skilled and have experience representing individuals who have been harmed by this dangerous drug. Paxil attorneys can help Paxil victims obtain compensation for their injuries.

Over the years, adults using Paxil have filed lawsuits over adverse side effects and problems associated with withdrawal. Now GlaxoSmithKline is facing a number of lawsuits from parents of children and adolescents given Paxil after making claims the company has suppressed data showing the drug increased suicidal tendencies in young people.

That’s why those persons, who have been diagnosed with the debilitating mental illness known as depression, have flocked to the drug called Paxil. For those afflicted persons, Paxil has seemed like a veritable godsend.

Persistent pulmonary hypertension in newborns is noted with a cardiopulmonary disorder illustrated by systemic arterial hypoxemia secondary to elevated pulmonary vascular resistance and the bypassing of pulmonary blood flow to the systemic circulation.

Information about Paxil side effects and paxil lawsuits reviews is offered here in Paxil lawsuit claim center. Our professional Paxil lawyers will help you win Paxil side effects lawsuits and get best Paxil lawsuit settlements for you and your family

Against Home Rule (1912): The Case for the Union

This book, for which I have been asked to write a short preface, presents the case against Home Rule for Ireland. The articles are written by men who not only have a complete grasp of the subjects upon which they write, but who in most cases, from their past experience and from their personal influence, are well entitled to outline the Irish policy of the Unionist Party.

Filing For Bankruptcy in the UK

Filing for bankruptcy in the United Kingdom can be a daunting experience but not an impossible one. You just need to take your time and work through each step methodically.

There are people and organisations available to help and advise you through the process. One of the best ‘free’ services is the Citizen’s Advice Bureau, simply find your local branch and call them or drop in. They are there to help.

The initial step is to start the process by filing a bankruptcy petition, if you are filing for bankruptcy yourself then this will be called a ‘Debtor’s Petition’. If you wish to file for bankruptcy you need to visit your local court and they will give you the details of your closest county court that actually deals with bankruptcy hearings.

If your creditors, the people you owe money to, are forcing you to go bankrupt then they will file the bankruptcy petition. This is then called a ‘Creditor’s Petition’ and can only be filed by those people that you owe £750 or more to.

When you file the petition for bankruptcy there is a charge of £370 to the court, this covers the court fee andalso the official receiver’s deposit.

Once the petition has been filed there will be a court date set. This will be for the first hearing. During this hearing one of the following options will occur:

* The court may require more information before it decides whether to issue a bankruptcy order therefore the proceedings will have to be delayed.

* The court may dismiss the bankruptcy petition that has been filed.

* There maybe an individual voluntary arrangement put in place via an insolvency practitioner.

* The court will make a bankruptcy order immediately and you will be declared bankrupt straight away.

You will discover that once a bankruptcy order has been made that an official receiver will be nominated to look after all your affairs. An official receiver is a civil servant and also an officer of the court.

Once you have been declared bankrupt, you will need to have an interview with the official receiver. During this initial meeting you will discuss your reasons for declaring yourself bankrupt. The official receiver will weigh up your assets and your liabilities, you will then be appointed a trustee. If you have no assets you will not require a trustee.

The trustee is the person that is responsible for selling any property that you actually own and dividing the sale proceeds between your creditors.

You will be discharged automatically from bankruptcy generally a year from the date that the bankruptcy order was issued.

Always consider all the options open to you before you file for bankruptcy, weigh everything up carefully. If bankruptcy is still the answer then do not panic, all you need is accurate and up to date information on the whole process. When I filed for bankruptcy I wish I had someone who was willing to explain all the jargon which made bankruptcy seem so mysterious and frightening. is a step by step guide on what to expect if you are considering filing for bankruptcy in the United Kingdom.
