Anyway we have tried our best again, but this time we will just have limited articles due to journalists being busy in RL. You'll also have a article by the Infamous Whole India which played a key role in the downvote process. Please note this isn't a Official statement and have a nice read.

The Politics of the Day: The Next NS Superpower
Part 2 of 2: Creating a sphere of influence

Written by Whole India

Introduction:-
In the last volume, we saw a few regions which are considered as the next superpower and we saw their possibilities. Today we will see the Blocs of these regions means their sphere of influence and ranks. The Spheres of Influence also contribute a lot in making of regions. As few get the blessings while few lead the path. The larger the sphere the better, but a sphere without a leader is also not at the best position.

Spheres of Influence [In Short]:-

1. World Assembly Legislative League [WALL]
WALL isn’t a military alliance, however, it is a type of alliance, and like its name suggests it is more indulged in the World Assembly’s Affairs. WALL is unofficially led by the North Pacific and is indeed their Sphere of Influence. Balder, Europeia, Europe, and the International Democratic Union [IDU] are a part of it.

2. The Consortium
The Consortium is a multi-lateral all aspect alliance. However, with the fall of TEP, it may be tedious to progress, but TEP is still leading this as their sphere of influence. The alliance’s foundation date is yet to be declared. Such slow progress in the alliance naturally makes an individual hinder the alliance. The East Pacific, The Free Nations Region, The Kingdom of Great Britain, The Glorious Nations of Iwaku, Force, Thaecia, Eientei Gensokyo are the members of the Consortium.

3. NSLeft
NSLeft is a leftist alliance led by the Communist Bloc. This region is a type of Comintern. This region’s aim is to promote Leftism in NS. The Communist Bloc, The Leftist Assembly, North Korea, Anarchy, Social Liberal Union, Mariner Trench. The Antifa also has an embassy with NSLeft.

3. Antifa
Antifa is another Sphere of Influence lead by the Communist Bloc, but this region only concentrates on Military warfare against Fascist regions. All Liberated and refounded former fascist regions have embassies with Antifa. Freedom and Justice Alliance, In the Flesh, Mariner Trench, North Korea, The Free Nations Region, The Internationale, The Kingdom of Great Britain, Wintercrest are members of Antifa.

4. United Regions Alliance [URA]
URA is also known as “United Regions Alliance”. It is led by the Conch Kingdom, though it’s a multilateral Alliance. 32 regions are part of it. Making it once of the biggest alliances in NS.

5. Assembly of Regions [AOR]
AOR which was once equivalent to URA is now on collapse as many regions are leaving it. It was founded by Dierexa or Wolf of Moonlight Battle Born and later the creator himself had left the union.

Ranks for the next potential superpower/s:-

1]The South Pacific [TSP] or The Rejected Releams [TRR]

2] Europeia or 10000 islands

3] The Pacific

4] The Communist Bloc

5] Forest or Europe

6] The East Pacific [TEP]

7] The West Pacific [TWP]
[sub] This isn't a official statement of the region of India

November Elections: Incumbents Again!

Written by Indusse

November saw the tri-monthly World Assembly Delegate Elections and Parliamentary speaker elections been conducted. The results of both the elections weren't unexpected says various nations and participants of the elections. The Speaker Elections saw incumbent Madhyarashtra been elected with a supreme majority as the speaker. Madhyarashtra was challenged by Indigrad and Rajput Great who are also fellow citizens to the post of speaker. The opposing candidates could only secure a single vote for them in the elections.

The elections for the biggest post, World Assembly Delegate was won by the incumbent Indusse with a clear majority and permanent votes from the Endorsees. The World Assembly Delegate candidates were Rajpore; who was a long time member of the region, Gadhavi; New but active member of the region and Indusse; the present delegate who had already been elected in the past to the office for five hundred and five days. The elections also saw the new nation, Gadhavi reaching second surpassing the old Rajpore. It was noted that only two nations shifted the endorsement towards Gadhavi and none shifted towards Rajpore. Indusse was unanimously elected and the new cabinet was appointed.

Have a taste of the Banhammer : Look out for them!
Please look out for these nations

Written by Indusse

It has been a while since bans and ejections left India. Bans and ejections were a frequent ceremony and was part of Indian Activity in the past terms. Ejections and Banishment were extensively practiced in the reign of Hindu Puri. Over a dozen of nations were ejected each month for trolling and spamming the RMB, this time it's something different. The latest banishment was of 'Mother China' , like the name suggests a Chinese themed nation who trolled,spammed and provoked fellow nations by talking against India and it's diverse citizens. Upon the request of the fellow nations the spammer was banejected from the region on thirtieth of November.

The Second and the most important one was the banejection of Rajpore, a well known member of the region and two time WAD candidate. The reason of the ban on Rajpore was the sudden, unexpected raid on the discord server of AoR Roleplay or former Assembly of Regions Roleplay. The discord server had more than 15 channels with vivid resources and information and over 80 members. The raiders who were more than 3, destroyed the server completely kicking majority of the server members and deleting all the channels. The raiders finally created two channels and mass pinged everyone in the server till someone banned one of the leaders who is said to be Rajpore from the server. The New AoR RP server is been set up with the help of Aav (Heartfelden Founder and Roleplayer in the server) and is currently closed to development. Some of the members of the roleplay server have stated Rajpore can be innocent and he will not be able to do this, still some proofs go against him and is currently teaching the conclusion that he is the Impostor (Raider). Various servers in which he was part of banejected him. It has been found he has Alternate accounts namely Rajpore and a one with the PF of Indonesian president Jokowidodo. The Username of the raider was 'Thanos,but destroys AoR#9317'. Please look out for these IDs and nations.

Supreme Court of India: November
Whole India v Government of India

Written by Indusse

In the month of November, The Supreme Court adjourned for the hearing of the case presented by Whole India. The Case was a Appeal against the Administrative ban levied on Whole India long back. Whole India was subjected to a ban on taking any Admin position in India till April 2021. Whole India went to the supreme court and appealed against the Government of India. The Court adjourned and a stance was said within two days. The supreme court removed all the bans from Whole India and he's now free to be part of administration. The Judges Bench consisting of Hindu Ram Rajya,Gujarat Parma and Devraj saidAfter hearing the arguments made by Lawyer of Whole India and Indusse, we have come to a verdict.
Our first point is, the main allegation on which Whole India was banned is the allegation of that he was a Black Hawk agent which has been shown as false as testified.
Secondly, criticising the government is okay, but should be done so in a appropriate and constructive manner(constructive criticism).
Thirdly, the tenure of a punishment of a mistake which he didn't commit is long enough. He has served nearly double of his sentence.
So we judges, hereby acquit Whole India of all charges, and his ban will be lifted on 1st of December 2020, effectively.

Good morning Ladies and Gentlemen of Texas!

Today is:
National Mutt Day

Quotes of the Day:
“I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet.”- Jack London

“Never confuse a single defeat with a final defeat.”- F. Scott Fitzgerald

2014 Stephen Hawking claims that Artificial Intelligence could be a "threat to mankind" and spell the end of the human race

National Mutt Day

Let’s throw this day to the dogs! Not just any dog, though. Today, we toast to the mixed breeds of the world, so raise your water bowls high … because this one’s for the mutts! There’s no ifs, ands, or mutts about it — December 2 is National Mutt Day, and we’re here to celebrate. In fact, we love this day so much, we celebrate it twice year. The next National Mutt Day is July 31!

NATIONAL MUTT DAY ACTIVITIES
Volunteer at your local shelter

Animal shelters are always looking for volunteers, and you'd make a great one! Check in with your local rescue to see how you can get involved.

Offer to dog-sit for a friend
Chances are, you've got plenty of mutts in your life. While every dog owner loves their pet, they'd probably still appreciate a day off.

Adopt a mutt
The ultimate way to celebrate this holiday! If you've been thinking about getting a dog, open up your heart to a mutt and you won't regret it.

WHY WE LOVE NATIONAL MUTT DAY
It encourages adoption of mixed-breed dogs

This is what National Mutt Day's all about! While all dogs at shelters need adopting, purebred dogs tend to have much better luck, so mutts often end up being left out to dry.

They've got the best temperaments
Most purebreds were bred for specific traits, so they're likely to have a more extreme personality. Mutts, on the other hand, have a blend of traits from different sources, which often leads to a more mellow mood. In fact, purebred dogs are more likely than mutts to have genetic disorders, including cataracts and hypothyroidism.

They're all so different
With all the dog breed combinations out there, there are a nearly an infinite amount of possibilities. Just think about it this way: 4-digit combination locks have ten thousand combinations, and there are over 300 breeds of dogs. You can [try to] do the math.

Ladies and Gentlemen of Texas,

I'm very happy when I'm given the opportunity to bring joy to people. It brings me much joy in return. Therefore it is with joyous pleasure that I present the first message of this Advent Calendar that I've filled with inspirational quotes, stories and poems:

Advent Calendar
Dec 1, 2020

Through Me

Through me
let there be kind words, a warm smile, and a caring heart.

Through me
let there be a willingness to listen and a readiness to understand.

Through me
let there be dependability, steadfastness, trust and loyalty.

Through me
let there be compassion, forgiveness, mercy and love.

Through me
let there be every quality I find, O Lord, in Thee.

- Author unknown

“Leadership is the art of getting someone else to do something you want done because he wants to do it.”-Dwight D. Eisenhower

Advent Calendar
Dec 2, 2020

During the gold rush, a man who had been mining in Colorado for several months quit his job, as he hadn’t struck gold yet and the work was becoming tiresome. He sold his equipment to another man who resumed mining where it had been left off. The new miner was advised by his engineer that there was gold only three feet away from where the first miner stopped digging.

The engineer was right, which means the first miner was a mere three feet away from striking gold before he quit.

The Moral:

When things start to get hard, try to persevere through the adversity. Many people give up on following their dreams because the work becomes too difficult, tedious, or tiresome–but often, you’re closer to the finish line than you may think, and if you push just a little harder, you will succeed.

no can do there partner we aren't invaders, we are defenders. plus only the TRC and the Texas Cabinet can declare war if war were needed. In this case it's a no go

Seems to me if you post a roleplay request, the least you can do is respond to an interested party. Even if the answer is no.

International Day of People with Disabilities

International Day of Persons with Disabilities on December 3 is a day to help everyone become more compassionate and understanding of the challenges faced by people with disabilities. The day doesn’t discriminate between mental and physical disabilities, and the spirit of the day is to ensure that all people in the world have equal opportunities for work, play, health, and success. People with disabilities can be and very often are contributing and valued members of society, and today is all about appreciating them.

HOW TO OBSERVE INTERNATIONAL DAY OF PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES
Become an advocate for people with disabilities

Look around your community and the places you frequent. If accommodations for people with disabilties are not in place, ask the shop owner, mall manager and/or your elected officials to install them.It’s the law.

Lend a helping hand
Inquire at your local senior center or residence, or of the nurses at an outpatient clinic, if they know of someone who needs assistance. Offer to help. Sometimes just delivering a medication, dropping off the mail, or picking up a few things at the grocery —simple tasks for you—would make the world of difference to someone with a disability.

Show some compassion
When you’re tired, harried and in a rush, you know you can sometimes be irritable. Don’t snap at someone who’s slowing you down,or take your frustrations out on them. They could be a person with a disability. If so, their lives are always like that, while your problems are probably fleeting. Likewise, don’t let any bad humor they exhibit ruin your day. This is when a smile can smooth everything over.

WHY INTERNATIONAL DAY OF PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES IS IMPORTANT
It builds awareness of people with disabilities

People with disabilities sometimes feel invisible in our society. People rush around them in their daily routines, barely noticing them. Today, try to make eye contact and smile and be available to help should they seem to be having difficulties.

We better understand the difficulties people with disabilities have
The treasured parking space right in front of the pharmacy, the sloped curbs at intersections with the textured mats in place so the vision impaired folks can feel the curb end, the buttons to open doors automatically, even elevators on the Subway —are all in place to make a difficult life a little easier for a person with disabilities. Notice these accommodations today, and then notice how few of them there are.

It’s more than a day —it’s the law
The Americans with Disabilities Act was created to define the rights of people with disabilities and the design standards which businesses and municipalities must incorporate to comply with the law. Called the ADA, it is quite explicit in the standards required, and a familiarity with it could be most helpful to anyone in.

It’s Never Too Late
The Story:

In the 1940s, there was a man who, at the age of 65, was living off of $99 social security checks in a small house, driving a beat-up car.

He decided it was time to make a change, so he thought about what he had to offer that other people may benefit from. His mind went to his fried chicken recipe, which his friends and family loved.

He left his home state of Kentucky and traveled throughout the country, trying to sell his recipe to restaurants. He even offered the recipe for free, asking for only a small chunk of the money that was earned.

However, most of the restaurants declined his offer. In fact, 1,009 restaurants said no.

But even after all of the rejections, he persisted. He believed in himself and his chicken recipe.

When he visited restaurant #1,010, he got a YES.

His name? Colonel Harland David Sanders.

The Moral:

There are a few lessons that you can take away from this story. First, it’s never too late in life to find success. In a society that often celebrates young, successful people, it’s easy to start to think you’re never going to be successful after a certain age. However, Colonel Sanders is an example that proves that argument wrong.

This story also demonstrates the power of persistence. You have to have confidence in yourself and believe in your work for other people to believe it also. Disregard anyone who tells you “no” and simply move on.

National Cookie Day

National Cookie Day is December 4 so get ready to refill your cookie jar. Maybe you prefer your cookies to have a crunchy snap, or maybe you’d rather bite into soft and chewy sugary heaven. Either way, eating cookies brings us happiness, and we should all do it more often. Just don’t tell your doctor.

HISTORY OF NATIONAL COOKIE DAY
n America, a cookie is described as a thin, sweet, small cake. By definition, a cookie can be a variety of hand-held, flour-based sweet cakes, either crisp or soft. Each country has its own word for “cookie”. In England and Australia they’re referred to as biscuits, in Spain they’re galletas. Germans call them keks and in Italy they have several names to identify the various forms of cookie. In America, the Dutch word “koekje” was Anglicized to “cookie”. The sweet treat came to America through the Dutch in New Amsterdam in the late 1620s. The earliest reference to cookies in America is in 1703, when the Dutch in New York provided 800 cookies for a funeral.

Hard cookie-like wafers have existed for as long (and maybe even longer) as baking has been documented. However, they were not sweet enough to be considered cookies by modern standards. They appear to have some origins in 7th century CE Persia, shortly after the use of sugar became relatively common in the region. They spread to Europe through the Muslim conquest of Spain. By the 14 century, they were common in all levels of society throughout Europe, from royal cuisine to street vendors.

With global travel becoming widespread at that time, cookies made a natural travel snack, a modernized equivalent of the travel cakes consumed throughout history. One of the most popular early cookies, which traveled especially well and became known on every continent by similar names, was the jumble: a relatively hard cookie made largely from nuts, sweetener, and water.

NATIONAL COOKIE DAY TIMELINE
1853
The original Keebler elf

Godfrey Keebler opened his neighborhood bakery in Philadelphia.

1912
Oreos

Oreos, which were originally made as a knockoff of the first chocolate sandwich cookie called Hydrox, made its way to stores.

Late 1930s
Toll House Cookies

Ruth Wakefield, who ran the popular Toll House restaurant in Whitman, Massachusetts, brought the Toll House Chocolate Crunch Cookie into being, which is considered the first chocolate chip cookie.

1963
Chips Ahoy!

Chips Ahoy! debuted their cookie brand in 1963.

NATIONAL COOKIE DAY FAQS
Is there a National Cookie Day?

There absolutely is! National Cookie Day occurs annually on December 4. No one can tell you that you’ve eaten too many cookies on this day…well they can. Eat responsibly, friends!

Is today National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day?
Quick! Check your calendar? Is today August 4? If it is, then phew! You’re in luck because it’s National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day! If not, then darn! You can still eat a chocolate chip cookie though!

Is there a National Candy Day?
We hope your sweet tooth is cavity free, because National Candy Day is celebrated annually on November 4!

NATIONAL COOKIE DAY ACTIVITIES
Find the best cookie near you

There's a bakery hiding in your neighborhood with the best darn cookies you've never had. Ask some friends, and consult Yelp, to find the best cookie in your neck of the woods.

Make a new type of cookie
Many of the most famous cookies (we're looking at you, chocolate chip) were the result of happy accidents in the kitchen. Try some experimenting on your next batch to see where you land!

Have a charity bake-off
If you're really looking to make this National Cookie Day count, you could get ambitious and host a charity bake-off, donating the funds raised to your favorite charity!

WHY WE LOVE NATIONAL COOKIE DAY
Everyone's got a favorite

Oatmeal? Chocolate chip? Sugar? They can't all be the best cookie, but any of them could certainly be someone's favorite. With the vast variety of cookie types across the globe, you're bound to get ten different answers if you ask ten different people.

They're delicious
Come on — does this one really need elaboration? We've all got fond memories, filled with nostalgia, of eating cookies as a youngster. For most of us, that love for cookies never left us.

They make it easy to pace yourself
If you bake a massive cake, it's easy to eat too much. Think about it: even after cutting out a massive slice, there's still a ton of cake left and it barely looks like you've made a dent. With cookies, it's easier to stop at one (though no one ever does.)

7. Dirty Money
The Story:

A well-respected speaker began a seminar by showing an audience of 150 people a crisp $20 bill. He asked, “Who wants this $20 bill?”

All 150 people nodded.

He said, “I am going to give this money to someone, but first….” Then he proceeded to crumple the bill up.

He asked the crowd again if anyone wanted it.

All 150 hands went up in the air.

The speaker then dropped the money on the floor and stomped all over it.

He then raised it in the air to show the crowd. The money was filthy.

“Does anyone want it now?”

Every hand went up.

The speaker proceeded to tell the crowd that no matter what he did to ruin the money, people still wanted it because its value remained the same. It was still worth $20.

The Moral:

Life often beats us up to the point where we feel inadequate. We deal with bad circumstances and make bad choices that we have to deal with later. However, no matter what you go through, your value will remain the same. You have something special to offer that no one can take away from you.

“You are amazing. As you are. Stronger than you know. More beautiful than you think.”- Tia Sparkles

Candle Day
Every year on the first Saturday of December on December 5 which is Bath & Body Works’ Candle Day. Stock up on your favorite calming scents for the lowest prices of the year. The day only comes around once annually, so make sure it’s on your calendar!

HISTORY OF CANDLE DAY
Every year since the day’s 2013 inception, candle lovers across the nation gather on the first Sunday of December to take advantage of Bath & Body Works’ annual candle sale. Three wick candles that usually retail for around $25 will only be $9.50. Some locations will extend their operating hours so that they open earlier and close later, giving their customers ample time to go to the store and sniff out their favorite candles.

From the earliest of times, candle makers added scents to produce the best smelling candles. It started in China with their candle “time clocks”. Incense sticks were often inserted into the wax to add relaxing aromas. Sometimes incense were placed sporadicly throughout the candle so that the scent was constantly changing. In the 1980s and 1990s, a rebirth in candle popularity became an international phenomenon, This was due partly to their decorative value, but also their ability to allow the stressed out, modern, over-worked homeowner an opportunity to create a relaxing environment using the aromatherapy of scented candles.

Bath & Body Works, an American retailer under the L Brands umbrella, was founded in 1990 in New Albany, Ohio. The company’s first store opened in a Cambridge, Massachusetts mall in September 1990. In 1997, a secondary brand called Bath & Body Works at Home was launched. Soon it was renamed to Slatkin before settling on the name we know it as today, White Barn Candle Company. The company launched a seasonal catalog, a website, and launched its first television commercial advertisement in 2006. Net sales as of January 28, 2006 were $2.3 billion, significantly higher than all other L Brand companies other than Victoria Secret.

CANDLE DAY TIMELINE
1990
Bath & Body Works

American retailer company Bath & Body Works opened in New Albany, Ohio.

1998
White Barn Candle Company

L Company converted several Bath & Body Works into White Barn Candle Company locations to launch their home fragrance brand.

2013
Bath & Candle Works

2019

Due to high traffic, thousands of online Bath & Body Works shoppers faced issues with the site crashing and glitching while trying to pay for their selections.

CANDLE DAY FAQS
What day is Candle Day?

Candle Day is the first Saturday of December.

What time does Bath & Body Works open on Candle Day?
Many locations offer extended hours during Candle Day, with most stores opening around 7am and others opening even earlier.

Is there a limit to how many candles you can buy on Candle Day?
Probably for our own good, Bath & Body Works limits the amount of candles we can get away with at 15. However, there are over 130 scents and 26 exclusives, so you can make those 15 candles as diverse as you want them to be!

CANDLE DAY ACTIVITIES
Stock up on your favorite scents

This is the moment when you can buy enough Mango Coconut candles to last you through the Winter. Buy five candles for the price of two and wonder for the rest of the day if you saved way more money than you were supposed to.

Purchase something new
Once we discover our favorite scent, we don't like to stray too far from it. This Candle Day, take advantage of the sale to try a new scent. If you don't like it, then at least you didn't pay full price!

Light 'em up!
You've got your candles and placed them strategically (and safely) around your home. Now's the time to light them up and inhale the smell of sweet tranquility.

WHY WE LOVE CANDLE DAY
They're relaxing

Though aromatherapy isn't exactly a proven science, something about the smell of burning scented wax in your home is soothing and relaxing, especially lit right after a long day at the office when all you want to do is decompress and let your mind have a much needed break.

They make our homes smell good
Pets, children, just everyday living can make our homes a little funky. Especially if you live in a small apartment with not much circulation. Sometimes we need to get rid of the funk that comes with existing in a space, and that's where candles can help. A deep cleaning is pretty helpful too though, but how are we supposed to find the time for that?

They're decorative
A vibrant candle on your coffee table or living room bookcase can double as a statement piece that brings the whole room together as well as a source of fragrant paradise!

Rock, Pebble and Sand
The Story:

A philosophy professor once stood up before his class with a large empty mayonnaise jar. He filled the jar to the top with large rocks and asked his students if the jar was full.

His students all agreed the jar was full.

He then added small pebbles to the jar, and gave the jar a bit of a shake so the pebbles could disperse themselves among the larger rocks. Then he asked again, “Is the jar full now?”

The students agreed that the jar was still full.

The professor then poured sand into the jar to fill up all the remaining empty space.

The students then agreed again that the jar was full.

The Metaphor:

In this story, the jar represents your life and the rocks, pebbles, and sand are the things that fill up your life. The rocks represent the most important projects and things you have going on, such as spending time with your family and maintaining proper health. This means that if the pebbles and the sand were lost, the jar would still be full and your life would still have meaning.

The pebbles represent the things in your life that matter, but that you could live without. The pebbles are certainly things that give your life meaning (such as your job, house, hobbies, and friendships), but they are not critical for you to have a meaningful life. These things often come and go, and are not permanent or essential to your overall well-being.

Finally, the sand represents the remaining filler things in your life, and material possessions. This could be small things such as watching television, browsing through your favorite social media site, or running errands. These things don't mean much to your life as a whole, and are likely only done to waste time or get small tasks accomplished.

The Moral:

The metaphor here is that if you start with putting sand into the jar, you will not have room for rocks or pebbles. This holds true with the things you let into your life. If you spend all of your time on the small and insignificant things, you will run out of room for the things that are actually important.

In order to have a more effective and efficient life, pay attention to the “rocks,” because they are critical to your long-term well-being.

***** Texas Saturday Breakfast *****

New Taco Time! All fresh, all new! Saturday Breakfast In Place time! Bring out the Drones! The NewTexas Happy Taco Stands, in conjunction with the NewTexas Incendiary Corporation, has approximately 1 trillion of the fastest, lightest drones you have ever seen. This fleet is specially designed to deliver tacos to every man, woman, child, whatever, in Texas, all 2,396,175,000,000 of you.

For your dining pleasure, today's special breakfast will Saturday Weenie con Huevo y Queso Tacos [COVID-19 Week XXXVII Edition]! This is a tradicional Mexican morning staple that can be served any time of day! The Head Smoker of Taco Town is getting a rest as the Big Tex Abuelas and Abuelitas break out the ginormous black cast-iron skillets. Yes, hungry Texans, it is exactly what it sounds like. Weenies, aka hot dogs, are cubed-up and expertly, lightly-browned in the skillet with diced onions and diced tomatoes. Just that easy. Once everything has some color on it, egg after egg, after egg, is cracked right into the mix and less-than-gently scrambled in. This all happens very fast and at the end, handfuls of coarsely-shredded genuine Longhorn Cheddar cheese is stirred in and a heaping spoonful is slapped into a hot, fresh flour tortilla, also made by our very own Abuelas on the premises multiple times daily. It is just that simple and delicious. Remember, a whole egg in every taco!®

Today's Special Salsa is once again, not salsa at all but is - Ketchup - yep, the standard good ol' red stuff. For the taco purists, a cup of Pico de Gallo is also included. The tacos are hermetically-sealed in a Stay-Warm® pouch that is wrapped in the same ol' aluminum foil we are all so familiar with for our breakfast taco. The Juice Bar will not be possible this week. But, for your beverage needs, a packet of Sanka, Tang and a Lipton Tea bag will be included with every delivery as well as salt and pepper and a napkin. Yes, it is different, but it works and you do not even have to leave your residence. Woo! And, watch out for the drones! Start your day off the right way; munch out and go back to sleep. You know you want to!®

Stay Safe Texas. Stay Well.

***** Texas Chat Reminder *****

The Texas Weekly Chat Session will be Saturday (TODAY) at High Noon Texas Time (CDT) ***Saturday***. And, if you can't be there right at Noon, that is Ok, Texas Chat usually runs 3, 4, 5 hours with some Chats running as high as 7 or 8 hours.

The Texas Chat Site is here: http://texasregion.net/blab70/login.php

Please register with your nation name. This is a great opportunity for nations old and new to Texas to find out what is going on! We chat, we debate, we talk about the weather, we talk about stuff we like, stuff we hate, random stuff, and more stuff. But, it is never stuffy. Usually, it is about meeting your fellow Texans and talking about the latest and most interesting stuff in NationStates at the moment. But then again, sometimes NationStates does not even come up. It is wide-open chatting with peeps from around The World both IRL and NS. It is Texans, EuroTexans, WannabeTexans, ex-Texans, and plenty of Friends of Texans. We have it all and all are welcome. Texas Chat, 818 weeks and running! For the math-challenged, that is over 16¼ years! Check it out! Good stuff!

Vincent's Sunday Surprise Beverage Bonanza

Howdy Dudes and Dudettes of Texas!

Today's Sunday Surprise Beverage is Make - Your - Own - Beverage Day! I've got lots of Large Boxes full of drink making ingredients stacked up right here and I'm going to beam them directly into the home of every Texan in Texas. Everyone will receive a Large Box and it'll materialize on the table closest to you. With all the drink ingredients in your box you can make Amazingly Good Eggnog, Non-Alcoholic Eggnog and Spiced Chocolate Eggnog. There's enough ingredients to make 3 glasses of each drink. You can keep the Instructional Guide CD as my gift to you:

Spiced Chocolate Eggnog

When blending drinks in your blender always add your ice at the end so it doesn't jam up the blender. Also if you've got alcohol in your house and you desire an alcoholic drink just mix your own booze into the beverages.

And today I've included a large container of a dozen Cranberry Brie Pinwheels in everyone's boxes too. These pinwheels are crisp and flaky and the filling is bursting with savory goodness and a touch of sweetness.

I hope y'all enjoy today's Sunday Surprise Snack and Beverages Texans. Yeehaw! :)

BTW I'm sorry Dudes and Dudettes but there won’t be a Daily Post from my Dad today. He’s OK but he just wants to sleep in today cause he’s tired.

I do it all the time, but there are some intersections in my town where they have signage that says no right right turn on red but it's not illegal outright. I suggest moving to Texas so you can have more money, land, and freedoms and leave California behind.

Alas, too many Californians seem to want to turn Texas into CaliforniaEast and continue to do the same stupid things that are messing up California. Not wanting to leave is like Battered Spouse Syndrome you know it's unhealthy but for some reason you can't quit.

I've noticed that in other states as well. Texas needs to be very careful lest the farggin' bastages from California do to Texas what they did to Colorado.

Freakin' shame.

If I were still living in Colorado, that son of biscuit would have an open revolt on his hands.
