Everybody knows Bush Sr said 'the vision thing' -- but wasn't he also quoted as having added 'grandkids'? Google gives me goose eggs.

I've searched for a long time for video of George Bush's 2003 surprise Thanksgiving visit to Iraq where he comes out and the soldiers jumped to their feet and erupted with cheering.

I planted some dry beans I bought in grocery store. They all sprouted. There were 5-6 varieties, big white ones, black ones, yellow etc. Is there any way for me to know are these going to be bush beans or pole beans? I would like to grow them on my balcony (to cover my wall) and I don't have much space. I would prefer pole or climbing beans, I don't have space for bush varieties. Would I be able to tell the difference when they grow into seedlings?

Does anyone have a good download link for the entirety of thepartyparty
's tracks? I remember I used to have 8 or 9 different remixes, but the website seems to have whittled that down to only 5, and with no clean download links. I need my "Dick is a Killer"!

I haven't watched The Simpsons
regularly since about season 12 or 13, but in those episodes I did happen to catch on TV, I have never seen them directly attack President Bush. I do remember back in the 'golden age' they used to regularly poke fun at Clinton (to name but one example, Clinton playing the sax and Moe telling him to "get back to work"). I'm wondering if regular watchers of The Simpsons
can point me to episodes from season 13 onwards where they did directly parody or attack Bush.

I have just spent the afternoon watching stocks around the world decline partially based on sub prime market fallout. My question is how can things be so great when the Fed is handing out stacks of cash to keep things stable (34 Billion USD and counting, not including the international bail out)?

Where can I find hi-res images of George W Bush--especially candid pics? I've checked all the usual places (google images, whitehouse.gov, etc). I'd even pay a few bucks if necessary.

Some time during the past few years, I'm sure I read a quote from someone connected with the Bush administration, but I can't seem to find it now. Something along the lines of "El Salvador's current government is the political ideal." Can anyone point me to the quote, and some context for it?

We have 2 mature boxwood bushes (about 10 years old) that are roughly 5 feet tall and 4 feet in diameter. My wife hates them because they obscure our front door. She wants me to cut them down and trash them. Being the cheapskate I am, I would like to dig them up (difficult, I know) and sell them. My question - is there a market for these and roughly how much do they sell for? It looks like small ones sell for $10-$20, but I couldn't find any large ones. Thanks for helping settle this marital dispute.

Any help identifying this plant
? It's a shrub about 10' high and the photo shows what it looks like in October in New England. Bonus points if you can provide a reference about whether it's poisonous or not.
