So this happened.........Guy in FL gets fined for putting up Christmas lights too early 😒 How early is too early and yay or nay on early decorations? I say yay on the holiday spirit 🙂 ~ 'Domonique'

A Central Florida man said his homeowner’s association showed signs of being Grinch-like after warning him that he could face fines of up to $1,000 for putting his Christmas lights up too early, according to multiple reports.

Who was the dead guy in the envelope today? I missed it. lol
``DISCIPLES OF METAL´´ an album that opens with the song ``Laid to Waste´´, with extremely striking riffs, ripped vocals and an engaging chorus, showing straight away, after that we have the song ``Signs From Above´´,showing an extremely contemporary approach to Hard Rock. In ``Tantrum´´, the highlight is certainly the dropped guitars and the choirs giving an extra charm to the track. Following, we have ``Die Before I kill You´´,which follows the same formula as the previous one, with dropped and weight guitars,starting with instruments sounding smooth and harmonious. The following track,``Left Behind´´ brings back the heavy guitars and all the energy that the band has, simply for me, the best song on the album, with a harmonization of the bass, drums and the wonderful vocals, a riff to hear , a chorus that sticks to your head. In geral, the whole album is a surprise for each track, but without leaving the mark of the band, which is that Heavy Metal and It can be seen in the last song, ``Lunacy´s Son´´, which already begins with a perfect introduction and follows with a heavy riff, and with many progressive influences and in the end exploding speed and weight. All the songs are well represented with high energy, in addition to speed and weight with their iridescent riffs in profusion and by the stone. The repertoire is not the only attraction of this material, and I can say that the refined technique of the drummer, guitarist, bassist and vocalist brings to us a very aggressive dynamic, in addition to technical versatility and a renewing breath for musicality and impressing by the high rotation that they manage to keep music by music and the album is closed with a flourish showing another quality work done in 2020. by Administratetors The Look of Rock and Rock Around The World groups

Hey Fingers! We ridin' New Year's Day?
102.3 WBAB Happy Holidays 🎅🧸 Dear Friends, I'm writing to let you know about my medical situation. I have progressive worsening kidney function from a birth defect and my doctors have recommended exploring the option of receiving a kidney transplant. They have told me that while dialysis will certainly help me, a transplant is the best medical treatment. The waiting time for a deceased donor kidney is years away and I have been advised to try to find someone who may be willing to donate a kidney to me. I am writing this letter with the hopes that someone may consider coming forward as being a match of type B or Type O Blood O is a universal type that works on anyone I want to be clear that I would only want a donor who does not feel any pressure to donate. I've learned that for some people the idea of kidney donation is a natural fit for them, and if that's you, then I hope you may consider helping me. If the idea of donation is not comfortable for you, I want you to know that I understand, and that your decision to not come forward will not affect our relationship in any way Kidney disease impacts every area of my life. Kidney failure causes a loss of energy and a lot of physical and mental fatigue. My food choices are limited, I'm not able to drink a lot of fluids. My understanding is that a successful kidney transplant will improve and relieve many of my symptoms and eventually allow me to return to a normal way of life again. I've learned it's possible for kidney donors to live a normal and healthy life with just one kidney. Donors are carefully medically screened to make sure it is safe for them to donate. I was also interested to learn donors don't have to be relative or be an exact blood match in order to donate. I understand this is an extremely personal decision and there is a lot to think about. If you would like to gather more information and explore kidney donation further, feel free to contact the donor nurse coordinators St. Paul's Hospital @ 604-806-9027 / 1-877-922-9822 Transplant.bc.ca My Mobile phone number 778-685-3071 Joe Fast
