The big thing we are thinking about right now is to make sure that we keep the new facility fairly safe. It is not like we are talking about a Wells Fargo armored truck depot, but the fact is that people have robbed this sort of place for valuable cargo. Mostly we are concerned about high value cargo and the focus of the cctv systems will be around an inner compound. For example a truckload of cigarettes is obviously worth a very significant amount of money. In the USA there are a lot of places where local taxes push the price of a pack of cigarettes up to around 8 dollars per pack. It is common to see the premium brands selling at 50 dollars per carton ( a carton has ten packs in it) and you could carry a box containing a gross of those quite easily, which is one hundred and forty four cartons. So a guy would easily be able to walk out of there with a box of cigarettes worth many thousands of dollars in his hands.
Of course it is not like stealing a car and having to chop into parts to sell it. A cigarette smoker is an addict. You offer him a cut rate discount on a pack of cigarettes and he is hardly going to interrogate you about how you came to be in possession of them.The same deal would go for alcohol, liquor, wine and beer. If you could walk out of here with a case of expensive whiskey it would be child's play to get rid of it. For that matter I would not particularly be too curious about where it came from if you offered me a bottle of my favorite brand for a really good price in fact.View A Great Deal More

From their days playing together as teenagers to their current acoustic and electric blues, probably no one has more consistently led American music for the last fifty years than Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady, the founders and continuing core members of Hot Tuna. The pair began playing together while growing up in the Washington D.C. area. In the mid 1960's, Jorma was asked to audition for a new band that was forming in San Francisco. Though an acoustic player at heart, he grew interested in the band's electronic gear and decided to join. Soon thereafter he summoned Jack, who now played the bass, from Washington D.C. Jack's experience as a lead guitarist led to a style of bass playing that took the instrument far beyond its traditional role. The unique sound of The Jefferson Airplane was created. Jorma contributed the band's name, drawn from a nickname a friend had for the blues-playing Jorma. Along with the other members of The Jefferson Airplane, Jorma and Jack are 1996 inductees in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
The Kaukonen-Casady duo created much of The Jefferson Airplane's signature sound, and Jorma's lead and fingerstyle guitar playing characterizes some of the band's most memorable tracks. Jorma and Jack would jam whenever they could and would sometimes perform sets within sets at Airplane concerts. Jorma left Jefferson Airplane after the band's most productive five years, and in 1969 Hot Tuna became a full-time job. Over the next four decades Hot Tuna would perform thousands of concerts and release more than two dozen records.at The Plaza "Live" Theatre 425 North Bumby Avenue Orlando, United States

I was having a really rough time of it on the plane, it was a very long flight and I was not feeling too well at all. In fact by the time I got to the Singapore Car rental counter I was quite sure that I was about to throw up while they were ringing me up for the Camry I rented. In fact I had to go relieve myself in the bath room and then I felt a great deal better. It was fortunate for me that I was near a bathroom when that urge struck me, because it was one of those things which was going to happen right then and there and it did not matter if i wanted to wait or not. In fact I was probably lucky that they did not think about quarantining me in the customs line. I must have looked quite awful then.
I’ve come to despise money. It’s silly, I know, but the fact that something like currency is so in control of our lives depresses me to no end. I hate the thought of people without money being forced to suffer. How is it rational in any shape, way or form to allow money to become a status symbol? It’s paper. It’s numbers in a screen. It has no value but the value third party entities set upon it. Beyond that, it is absolutely meaningless! And yet we need it. That’s why I find myself on uk payday loans online – I need money badly. It seems that no matter how hard I work or how long I work, I’m never going to be able to get ahead.
