There were five trucks arriving (Thursday) night to feed well over 50,000 people. There's less than that there. We're also diverting supplies to the convention center, which I learned about (Thursday). So I understand people's frustrations.

So we were able to teach the boys some words and pronunciation and she was nice enough to bring us folk songs and the national anthem of Croatia. We learned those things and are hoping to do them while we are on tour. It is nice to show people you are making an attempt to learn a little bit about their language and culture.
People are starting to see that it's not what they were led to believe. So I think now in the popular culture, people are starting to get the guts to come out and declare that they oppose this war.
Canada Customs have guidelines that make it optional whether or not someone considered violent, armed and dangerous, or as having terrorist ties, will be recorded as such in the Customs lookout database.

We launched Condoms4Life to educate young Catholics, as well as gay and straight couples, about what we think our faith demands of us Responsibility. We see St. Valentine's Day, a day representing love and passion for many couples, as the perfect time to remind people that the culture of life means affirming responsible and just sexual behavior-especially for those who are at risk of contracting AIDS.

We love 'lounge' culture, that era in the early '60s with all those bright colors, Dean Martin and what not. It's just part of the whimsy we want to bring to the store. We want Strangelove's to be the kind of place where, if you're having a bad day, you can come here and get cheered up.

Besides the unique artwork, there is the custom framing by professionals at Kinder-Harris Perfect combination
