Drunk Roaches and Other Pest Problems Solved

Got roaches? Get them drunk. No, seriously.  Drunken roaches have as little control over themselves as intoxicated humans.  Put a saucer of beer on the floor and let them go to town. Once drunk, sweeping them up will be a cinch.

Bavaria,Mr.Helmut Kohl home town.You can't even imaging the scale of the cloning activity.But warning,H.Kohl staff 100% controlling their clones spreading around the world,they're NAZI type disciplined and mind controlled,be careful get close with clones you will be controlled too.Original family didn't authorize any activity with stolen biomaterials,no matter what form it was created in,it's all need to be back to original family control in Cedars-Sinai MedicalCenter in LA.Controlling clones is US military operation.Original Scarlett never was engaged,by the way

Coloring Your Naughty Bits

How to Color Gray Pubic Hair? Finally a Product that Doctors Recommend

I have an amazing hair color product that is flying off the shelves and perfect for a feature story.

More than 40 percent of women have some gray hair by their 40th birthday and this includes the "hair down there". This week, 'The Doctors' on CBS answered questions from hesitant guests on dying their pubic hair, a widespread issue among women over 40. The OBGYN on the show introduced Betty Beauty-"color for the hair down there" and billed it as not only safe to use but recommended for any women growing gray pubic hair. With the U.S. hair care market worth $3.2 billion—$38 billion worldwide—there seems to be huge potential for a product that colors your naughty bits.

Betty Beauty is sold on bettybeauty.com and in select Duane Reade, Bed Bath & Beyond, and Spencer's Gifts nationwide for $19.99. The process is easy and under 20 minutes; not to mention that it lasts over 6 weeks!

Nancy Jarecki, the founder of Betty Beauty, inc. launched the product after vacationing in Rome where she noticed women leaving salons with small bags of hair dye. Italian women are known to dye their pubic hair to match their dyed hair and because stylists aren't licensed to do it, women dye their "betty's" secretly, in the privacy of their own home. Realizing that women would love a commercially-available product to color this private area, Nancy began developing the first safe "color for the hair down there." Since launching on store shelves, Betty Beauty won a 2008 CEW Indie Award as well as the 2007 Beauty ICMAD Awards – Best Personal Care Innovation and Best Website Product Marketing.

Making Money by Mailing Letters

I have received 2 letters within 2 weeks telling me how I could make 800,000 dollars in a short period of time. All I had to do is send 1 dollar to each of 6 people listed in the letter, then buy addresses and send out 200 letters advising people that I would publish their names in my letters. All they had to do was send 1 dollar to each of the 6 names listed, mine was #6. I searched addresses and names on mapquest and could find no one with the names given at these addresses. I also checked out my name and address and my name and address were listed.

Could it be that there is a slight error in the addresses that would cause them to be forwarded and someone is scamming a lot of people who think they are going to get rich by doing this?

Since I have a very unique name could you please refer to me as Mollie, my first name?

I do not receive your paper, so could you please let me know if you find anything out about this. If it's legal I would like to make 800,000 thousand dollars in the next few months.
