Occupy Wall St. is good, but there is some pollution from various Greenie fantasies. I mean, we are barely surviving as it is, and they want to shutdown all nuclear power plants? That is just masturbation. In fact, we need the NAWAPA project to transform the surface of the United States, and that will include moving water and using pumps that need nuclear powered electricity. This is the way to go Occupy Wall St dudes. In your 6 day, I wish you guys and girls luck.

Guest post written by George Palton
I think that one of the most important parts about making household reservations is finding the right people to do it. It's no good in going with the cheapest or the people that you know without getting a consultation and having a solid price and idea of what they're going to do.
We just finished the consultation process of our kitchen renovation and we're going to go with Sears home improvement. I even had an acquaintance come with his plumbing business and give me a number but it just wasn't nearly as good as what I was going to get from Sears.
I've been wanting to renovate our kitchen for a while now. Both my wife and I love to cook and I know that we're both going to be glad to get some nicer looking countertops and an island to making cooking even more enjoyable for us. Plus, we'll enjoy having people over for dinner parties and gatherings without having to worry about being embarrassed by our ugly kitchen. This is something that we're really going to love.
Are hamburgers good for the environment? I don't see why not, though some greenies say that we should not be feeding vegetable and grain food to cattle so that we can grow beef. Here is some ideas from the http://everydayhealth.com/ website on how to get a healthy and delicious burger.
Chef Ellie Krieger, nutritionist and Everyday Health's food expert (http://www.healthylivingwithellie.com/ ), shows us how healthy recipes can be simple and delicious. A lot of people think that to eat healthy, you need to give up your favorite foods. It's not true! This Horseradish, Cheddar, and Caramelized Onion Burger is juicy, flavorful — and healthy! The combination of the sweetness of the onions, the sharpness of the Cheddar, and the hot kick of the horseradish create a truly indulgent burger that packs a nutritious punch and is gentle on your waistline.

The Bronx WELCOMES ‘The Big 4’
As Borough Natives Anthrax come home, Food & Drink Specials
Await Metal Heads Visiting the Bronx
Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. is rolling out the welcome mat for fans coming to town to see iconic heavy metal bands Metallica, Anthrax, Megadeth and Slayer, “The Big 4,” all performing live right here in the Bronx on Wednesday, September 14 at Yankee Stadium.
Borough President Diaz, whose love of hip hop is well known and who initiated the first-ever “Bronx SalsaFest” this past summer, is “moshing” to a much heavier beat this month.
“This mega concert, one of the most anticipated events in recent memory, will bring thousands of new visitors to the Bronx,” said Borough President Diaz. “We’re inviting concert goers to come early and count down to the start of the show at our great neighborhood restaurants and bars, and take in a little of what the Bronx has to offer.”
The “Big 4” concert also represents a homecoming for Anthrax, which features three native Bronxites among their members--Charlie Benante, Frank Bello and Rob Caggiano. Both Benante and Bello grew up in Throggs Neck, while Caggiano is a native of Pelham Parkway. In honor of the band’s return home, Borough President Diaz will officially declare September 14 as “Anthrax Day in the Bronx.”
“The Bronx may be known as the home of hip-hop and salsa, but make no mistake, our musical contributions are much more expansive. These heavy metal legends grew up right here in our borough, and I am proud to welcome Anthrax back to their Bronx home,” said Borough President Diaz.
In the build up to the concert, the Bronx Tourism Council at BOEDC is spearheading the Metal Heads Welcome promotion, which spotlights the businesses in the 161st Street neighborhood surrounding the stadium. Restaurants and bars will offer choices like “Metallica Martinis” and “Metal Mayhem Meatball” specials and pipe in music by the world-famous bands. Baltimore-based radio station 98Rock FM will also broadcast live from the neighborhood, capturing the energy and enthusiasm of the Bronx crowds gathered for this historic heavy metal event.
“Concerts at Yankee Stadium like the ‘Big 4’ and college football games later this year are providing an unprecedented opportunity for more foot traffic and increased business for area merchants,” said Doris Quinones, executive director of the Bronx Tourism Council. “We’re delighted to be working with these great local businesses to attract visitors and to redefine what constitutes busy season at 161st Street.”
Echoing the Borough President’s enthusiasm is Joe Bastone, owner of Yankee Tavern, who went to school with some of the Anthrax band members and who is participating in the tourism council promotion.
“All of these events are great for neighborhood merchants,” said Bastone. “The more of them, the better.”
