Caring For Your Flag

Extreme Weather Conditions

Strong winds and rain can cause damage to flags of many fabrics. Even all-weather flags will wear faster in these conditions. It’s best to take flags down in bad weather. It’s also important to check your flag regularly for damage. Larger flags (10ft x 15ft and up) need to be checked for wear at least twice a month. Many people will buy two flags and rotate them frequently. That way one flag can be repaired and cleaned while the other is displayed.

Caring for your Flag

  • Do not store a damp flag. It can get moldy. Allow it to dry and store it in a moisture-proof container.
  • If your flag is dirty, you can hand wash it in cold water with mild detergent and allow it to air dry. You can also take it to the dry cleaners. Washing your flag regularly will increase its lifespan.
  • You can do minor repairs to your flag as long as they are not noticeable and it is still a fitting emblem. Flags in bad condition should be retired and replaced.
  • Position your flagpole in a clear area where your flag won’t whip against rough services, branches or anything it can snag on.
  • Keep your flagpole clean and in good repair. Rust can stain and corrode your flag and rough edges can tear it.

    Surfing Axed from Summer X Games

    ESPN X-GamesAfter five years of mixed results and a failure to find a competition format that worked and excited, the plug has officially been pulled on surfing for this years Summer X Games in Los Angeles. And while earlier this year we witnessed ESPN and X Games organizers get blasted for the decision (one that was soon after overturned) to axe the half-pipe competition, I’m not so sure that the exclusion of surfing from this years games is going to elicit the same type of reaction.

    The allure of the X Games is seeing the worlds most talented and skilled athletes competing at the highest level and in the most challenging arenas for each sport respectively. While that was the case for the majority of the action sports showcased in the games, organizers were simply unable to find a way to fit surfing into their mold in order to capture the hearts and minds of their audience when it came to surfing.

    I guess riding the waves does not measure up to riding the half-pipe.

    Kung Fu Panda Packs a 3rd Power Wallop

    Kung Fu Panda

    I was treated on Fathers Day to see Kung Fu Panda staring Jack Black, Dustin Hoffman, Angelina Jolie, Lucy Liu, and Jackie Chan. This was a great animation that really made you think about all the Kung Fu fighting styles come to life. It reminded me of one of my favorite Kung Fu movies The Five Deadly Venoms.

    Jack Black was the voice of Poe the Panda a lowly but lovable server in his fathers noodle restaurant. He is a big fan of the Kung Fu fighting style and a bigger fan of the fantastic 5 Kung Fu experts that are being trained to become the chosen one. Dustin Hoffman is the voice of Shifu the Kung Fu master given the task of teaching Poe the Panda the art of Kung Fu. Agelina Joelie is the voice of the Tiger, Lucy Liu is the voice of the Viper and Jackie Chan is the voice of the Monkey.

    This movie really impressed me with the mix of seriousness of learning a martial art and the humor of teaching it to an overweight and lazy Panda. Jack Black and Dustin Hoffman were a wonderful student and teacher combination. The color and imagery of this animation really took my breath away. Kung Fu Panda gave you the impression that you were in old world China and that this was a true battle of Good vs Evil.

    I would definitely recommend you go see Kung Fu Panda. I look forward to seeing it again and it will get its place in my DVD collection when it hits the stores or the bootleggers and the barber shop…;-)

    Baby Born With Second Penis On Back (PHOTO)

    The tot was born to farmer dad Li Jun, 30, and his unnamed wife, who live in Hejian city in central China’s Henan province.

    But he was rushed to Tianjin Childrens’ Hospital on May 27 for surgery to remove his extra manhood.

    The rare condition, the first for Tianjin Childrens’ Hospital, is called fetus in fetu (FIF).

    Doctors, who spent over three hours removing the extra penis on June 6, said he was fine following surgery.

    I ask you, imagine all men having two penises? You would constantly catch us going and cumming…;-)

    DMX and Denzel Washington Got Raped!

    DMX

    I saw this story on the celebrityrumors.com website and laughed my ass off. Even though it was reported almost 2 years ago I just had to comment on it. First of all the story mentioned Rapper and Movie Star DMX claimed that a woman who was not his wife and is also having his baby raped him. DMX also claims the incident was not his fault and he should not be held responsible for getting his assailant pregnant. I wonder if this claim could get a law passed against women who force guys to have sex with them…. NOT..lol

    I am a big movie buff and I seem to recall only one incident I remember of a man getting raped by a woman.

    Denzel Washington, John Lithgow and Ice-T in Richochet

    Do you remember the movie Ricochet staring Denzel Washington, John Lithgow and Ice-T. Well there is a scene in that move in which Denzel Washington is drugged and tied down to a bed only to have a hooker who was infected with a sexually transmitted disease have sex with him against his will. Denzel clearly didn’t want to have sex with this nasty woman and I am sure if his arms and legs were free he would have fought her off.

    I ask you, do you really think Mr. Big and Bad “Where MY Dogs At” DMX who has occasionally experimented with a few illegal drugs put up a big fight against this woman who allegedly raped him. I think NOT!

    I would love to hear your comments on this one.

    50 Cent’s House Catches Fire–And Drama Ensues

    50 Cent House Burns Down

    In a suspicious turn of events, 50 Cent’s multi-million dollar Dix Hills home at 2 Sandra Drive caught fire this morning. Six people were treated for smoke inhalation, including his baby’s mother and ex-girlfriend Shaniqua and their ten year old son Marquise. Both of them lived in the house. 50 wasn’t there as he is on location in Louisiana for a movie. One of the firefighters on the scene reports that this fire is “a strong, strong possibility that it is suspicious”. Damn. The home was completely engulfed in flames and is totally gutted.

    This story reminds me of a certain Atlanta Falcon Football player Andre Rison who had his house burned down by his on again off again Singer/Rapper girlfriend Left Eye, may she rest in peace.
