Vivos Marketing Luxury 5-Star Resort Survival Bunkers What A Trip

April 27, 2014

Vivos is marketing luxury survival bunkers. The overall scope of the project was to create a wow experience for the homeowner. So that they could live here and enjoy the facility and not just survive,” said luxury bunker creator. Survive whatever may come in comfort, whether it be a natural disaster or a future terror attack. “It was part of the selling point. You want to make it as comfortable for the psychology,” said Ralph Henrich, who bought a bunker. Henrich, of New Jersey, paid to reserve space in an underground luxury bunker for himself, his wife, and their three kids. The cost was $50,000 per adult and $35,000 for children under the age of 16. That’s nearly $200,000 for an average family of four. “Leather sofas, high end kitchens, comfortable bedrooms, artwork, a gym,” Henrich said of the accommodations. But as one bunker promotional video shows, today’s backyard survival bunker looks more like a five-star resort, equipped with everything from an indoor pool and state of the art movie theater, to a dog run and even an interactive classroom — all underground. But there’s only one catch, the bunker isn’t in New Jersey. “The location of this shelter is in Indiana,” he said. In case of a disaster, Henrich will have to get his family to the middle of the country where he believes it’s safer. Survival bunkers in Indiana. What a trip.

Ask The Eye Maybe Its Time To Open A New Chapter

April 26, 2014

Dear Eye View

When my ex and I were married, we had trouble conceiving and years of heartache. I thought our marriage was strong enough to survive this, then I discovered he was having an affair with my sister. We had a huge, traumatic confrontation and my then husband and I decided to move and make a fresh start. A few weeks after we moved, my sister gave the news that—surprise!—she was pregnant. My ex then divorced me to start a family with her. Because I’d just started a new job and had a mortgage, it was financially impossible for me to leave. I stayed in the new city by myself and eventually made friends and settled there. My parents were also very hurt and angry, but when the baby came they mellowed and reconciled. My niece is now 5 and I have never met her. We take turns attending family functions because I can’t bear to be in the same room as them. Recently my parents gently asked if I would consider having a Christmas dinner with my sister. I told them I would think about it and I really did. I took a deep breath and went on my sister’s Facebook page for the first time. There, I saw hundreds of happy pictures of them as a family. My ex-husband kissing her after she’d just given birth, photos of the happy first birthday party, family trips, etc. She was tagged in a status update from my ex: “Celebrating another amazing anniversary with my beautiful wife, thank you for giving me so much happiness and our perfect daughter.” I literally vomited after reading that. After five years, is it time for me to get over it and try to force myself to at least tolerate their company? Sick

Dear S

I understand your concern. It’s no wonder what you saw made you sick to your stomach. The violation against you was enormous. However, I don’t think you should conclude that the only way you could be with them is to have a bunch of air-sickness bags with you. So give yourself time. You may want, possibly with the help of a therapist or even a friend, to give yourself some desensitization therapy. Or maybe its time to start a new chapter. Hope this helps.

Ask The Eye Good Ambassadors For The Religious Heathens

April 26, 2014

Dear Eye View

My husband and I moved from the liberal Northeastern town we both grew up in to a small, conservative Southern one several years ago. One of the biggest adjustments has been the way people very openly talk about religion and assume that everyone else should as well. We mostly kept quiet about the fact that we don’t practice any religion and politely explain (over and over) that we’d rather not come to their churches. Our elementary school daughter recently told us that her teacher led the class in prayer each day before lunch in her public school. All the children had to bow their heads and recite a lengthy prayer. My daughter said she didn’t know if she should do it, but thought maybe it was “being a good American.” We told her that no one should ever force you to pray against your will. My husband and I wrote the principal about this and asked our child not be mentioned by name. The principal said she’d send a general reminder about not praying in class, but the tone of her email made it clear she thought we were overreacting. Our child reported the praying stopped immediately with no explanation. My husband and I think the teacher should have told the students why she shouldn’t have led them in prayer. He wants to press this issue, while I feel as long as we let our child know what’s right and wrong, we should let this go and accept this is part of where we live. Our child will be in this school for several more years. We did tell a few acquaintances about this and they said “people like us” were ruining the community of faith. Sometimes, I feel like I’m being a coward not standing up for religious tolerance.

—Unconstitutional

Dear U

I understand your concern. I understand that it’s distressing to live someplace where people not only don’t respect your lack of religious belief, but make it clear you’re going to hell. Presumably for professional reasons you must live somewhere where you are out of sync with the general culture. But one problem with our country is how insulated people can be from those who don’t share their religious or political views. You may accurately feel somewhat bullied by the devout you live among, but I think you should continue to remain diplomatic in your interactions. You are being good ambassadors for heathens! I agree it is important to teach religious tolerance and free speech especially in the northeastern  schools.

Hope this helps

Green Tea And Sushi Helps Japanese Women Live Longer No Mention of Health Effect On others

April 25, 2014

The benefits of drinking green tea and eating raw fish are extolled in a new study showing that Japanese women live longer than any others. Their ultra-healthy diet — no bread, no dairy — means that they live to an average of 86.4 years, considerably older than British women at 82.7 years and even the famously healthy Italians at 84.4. The Office for National Statistics said however that there was no reason why British women should not catch up with their Asian counterparts if theyadapt a similar life style.

Study shows shushi and green tea help  Japanese Women liver longer,  no mention of health effect on others.

April 25, 2014

Kazuyuki Hamada, a member of the upper house of Japan’s parliament, is miffed that Michelle Obama is staying home as her husband tours Japan. Hamada has raised hackles as Barack Obama visits Tokyo by claiming it’s an ‘open secret’ that he and the first lady are headed for divorce, and that the president has been using Secret Service agents to cover for him as he pursues extramarital affairs. The biggest reason – of many – for the collapse of his reputation is his failed relationship with his wife,’ Hamada claimed It is an open secret that the pair are already negotiating their divorce, and that they are waiting for his term in office to be over, and then they’ll separate.’The tabloid reported in January that the Obamas are sleeping in separate bedrooms and have determined that the president will return to Hawaii in January 2017, while Mrs. Obama and their daughters will remain in Washington, D.C.

Crazy Duck Involved In $275,000 Lawsuit Feeling A Little Down

April 25, 2014

Cynthia Ruddell claims Lolita Rose’s duck attacked her after it wandered down the street. Ruddell’s attorney, Gregory Price, told KATU, “… The duck flapped its wings at her and knocked her back and she fell down on an outstretched hand and fractured her wrist in two spots.”
Ruddell broke her right wrist, sprained or strained her elbow and shoulder, and suffered a rotator cuff injury.
The lawsuit claims Rose knew the duck had, “Abnormally dangerous propensities in attacking people.” Rose is accused of “needlessly endangering the public” because she didn’t keep the duck contained and didn’t warn neighbors about the danger. “We had neighbors that indicated this duck was a crazy duck that attacked kids at the school bus stop and other people before,” Price told KATU. The suit seeks $25,000 for medical expenses and $250,000 for her pain, her suffering and the interference her injuries have had on her normal, daily activities. Reports indicate the duck is feeling a little down.

Ask The Eye Conjuring Up A Ghost Wedding

April 24, 2014

Dear Eye View

My boyfriend and I have been together for two years and just moved in together. We’re both 30 years old and have no plans to marry. My boyfriend’s parents won’t take no for an answer, and after we move in together they asked us when we wanted the wedding. We told them we weren’t getting married, but they complained that we were being ridiculous. This crazy argument went on for a few weeks when his parents upped the crazy by a notch. They’ve booked their church for our “wedding” for next year and have also reserved a ballroom at a large hotel (deposits are due at the end of the week). They want us to decide on a band, flowers, food, etc. We told them that they can hold the wedding, but we won’t be there. My boyfriend’s mom also gave her travel agent my phone number and she’s already left a couple of messages asking when I can come in to plan our honeymoon. This is beyond weird. What else can we do to convince them that we are not getting married? My boyfriend has been as forceful with them about this as I have, so it’s not a case of us sending mixed signals. No mixed signals..

Dear NMS

I don’t have a subscription to Brides magazine, so I don’t know if they’ve covered the ins and outs of a ghost wedding. There’s probably not a lot that’s been written about the etiquette of the non-bride who is not getting married whose boyfriend’s parents have become (non)in-lawzillas. Tell his parents if they continue to plan this wedding they will need to conjure up their own bride and groom. Hope this helps

BundyFest 2014 Scheduled for Sept 5th May Become Carnival Of Bad Decisions

April 23, 2014

Some of the organizers of the annual Burning Man festival are planning an event aimed at mocking the claims of a Nevada rancher who refuses to pay government-mandated fees for using federal lands. “For years, we paid permitting fees to hold Burning Man on the beautiful Playa in Northern Nevada,” said the event’s organizers on a Facebook page. “But now, Cliven Bundy has shown us a NEW WAY! ABSOLUTE FREEDOM! Bundy has declared the entire area surrounding Bundy Ranch as a TOTALLY RULES-FREE ZONE! ANYTHING GOES! WOO-HOO!!!” Progressive activist Sean Shealy said Bundyfest, which will be held across the road from Bundy’s ranch in Bunkerville, Nevada, for one month starting on Sept. 5. Shealy said organizers expect about 50,000 people to show up in the desert near Bundy’s home. Magic 8 Ball says outcome not so good.

Expectant Father Let Internet Poll Pick Baby Name

April 22, 2014

In January of this year, an expectant father named Stephen started the website NameMyDaughter.com, where anyone on the Internet could suggest and vote on potential names for Stephen’s forthcoming baby girl. Well, as noted by the folks at Betabeat, Stephen’s wife gave birth on April 7. And the winning name is — drumroll, please! #Hashtag. Unfortunately for those looking to have their faith in humanity restored, “ #Hashtag” did not technically win the vote. The real first-place name was “Cthulhu All-Spark.” (“Cthulhu” won the vote for first name, and “All-Spark” won the vote for middle name.)

Parents decided to call her # for short.

Michelle Obama Believes Splurging Is The Key To Life It is Important To Exercise Splurging Every Day

April 22, 2014

Michelle Obama said “splurging is the key to life” if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. “How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?” she asked. “You couldn’t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries.” The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. “I still splurge when I can, but that’s why I try to exercise almost every day,” she said. Obama believes it is important to  exercise splurging everyday.
