I wrote a whole description for here but it’s gone…??!

Anyway, this is my engagement ring. I’ve worn it for over three years now, and just now had it resized due to some weight loss. While I was at it, I had it rhodium plated. The jeweler told me it would just make it shiny and look new. Since it’s a vintage ring I wasn’t sure I wanted it to look new.

That is, until I picked my ring up.

HOLY.CRAP. It doesn’t even look like my ring anymore! It looks like a brand new, sparkly wonderful thing.

I love that I had it resized as well. I had that done once when I first got it and they screwed it up–the band was much thinner in one area than in the other, but now it’s a perfect thickness all around and just looks so good.

I LOVE my ring!

88MM Flak 36 Multi-Purpose Gun

Germany WWII

The famed German "88" was designated as an anti-aircraft weapon during World War I. During the 1930’s the design was updated as the 88mm Flak 18 and further improved with subsequent models in later years.

Although successful is the anti-aircraft role, the gun achieved its greatest recognition as a tank killer. It served on every European front from 1910 onwards in both capacities causing devastating losses whenever employed. In addition, it was used for long range bombardment, assault preparation and support, as well as indirect fire. This was a formidable gun possessing high velocity, rapid fire and accuracy.

The cariage was provided with two outriggers for stability when firing in traverses other than directly front or rear. Fire control instruments provided data for anti-aircraft and indirect fire. Gunners employed direct laying for anti-tank fire.

Caliber: 8.8cm (3.46 in)
Weight: 4,985 kg (11,000 lbs)
Range: 14,727m (16,183 yds)
Shell Weight: 9.4 kg (33 lbs)
Elevation: 1,520 mils (+ 85 degrees)
Traverse: 6,400 mils (360 degrees)

An intimate night with Dame Edna: New Jenny Craig ambassador performs at Civic Hotel, Sydney

The Jenny Craig (Australia) official website reads: Dame Edna Everage is undoubtedly one of the most endearing Australian comic characters of all time, and one of the longest-lived comedic characterisations ever devised. Originally conceived in 1956, Edna has long since transcended her modest origins as a satire of Australian suburbia to become one of the most successful, best-known and well-loved comedy characters of all time.

As Dame Edna Everage prepares for her farewell tour "Eat, Pray, Live,” she has turned to Jenny to help her lose 15 kilos and fit back into those gorgeous stage outfits she is renowned for.

We secured more information on the latest marketing and media blitz on arguably Australia’s highest profile diet and weight loss company…

The new Jenny Craig ambassador announcement was always going to be hard to keep a secret!

The new Jenny ambassadors are Dame Edna Everage and Barrie Humphries and they performed tonight at the Civic Hotel in Sydney.


Humphries inks deal with Jenny Craig…

Barry Humphries is known for inventive ways to make a dollar, but this really takes the cake… so to speak.

In a deal understood to be worth more in excess of 0,000 Humphries, now 78, has become an ambassador for the weight loss program around the same time he hits the Australian stage for his last ever shows.

Jenny Craig is also snatching exposure by Humphries’ alter ego, Dame Edna Everage, promoting the arrangement.

Previous "Jenny" ambassadors such as Magda Szubanski, a recently self outed lesbian, have discovered, signing up to Jenny Craig also comes at a substantial personal price.

Humphries have never been one to expose much of his private life in the public or media domain, is about to become a lot more public about his business and personal life and lifestyle.

Humphries has previously endorsed companies such as Vision Australia and Myer.

The rumour mill says he earned about 0,000 to front up Myers ad campaigns and make personal appearances at the store’s Melbourne Cup marquee a few years back.

You can bet news media is about to become a lot more intimate with Barry (and Edna), and as long as he’s making a dollar (and loosing some pounds), he seems pretty content with it all possums.
