Did you know you have lost your gun rights in Alabama if you have been convicted of a Domestic Violence Misdemeanor? Has your pistol permit application or firearm purchase been denied in Alabama? Have you previously been convicted of a Domestic Violence, 3rd degree (misdemeanor) in Alabama? If you have been found guilty or plead guilty to a Domestic Violence misdemeanor or any state felony in Alabama, did you know that not only are you unable to be granted a pistol permit by your Sheriff, you are also prohibited under Alabama and Federal criminal law from possessing or owning a firearm. This includes Domestic Violence misdemeanor convictions in any Municipal or District Court in Alabama. The good news is, if this is your only firearm disability ground, there is a process to seek a restoration of your gun rights under Alabama and Federal law by obtaining a Full Pardon by the proper jurisdiction in Alabama.

Bonjour, c’est THE ville où il faut se rendre… bon après je ne suis pas objective, ma famille, mon mari… sont originaires de cette ville, moi je suis née à Lisbonne (une erreur !!! même si Lisbonne est une belle capitale aussi). On aime flaner, se baigner, boire un verre de vinho verde au café, manger un pastel de nata à 11 h « na pastelaria Bijou », avec un petit café, acheter des bijoux ancien chez « Ourivesaria Matos », manger un « arroz de cabidela » au restaurant « Coura » ou gouter à une autre cuisine au restaurant « Budapeste », visiter le musée des jouets anciens, les jardins, se ballader dans l’avenue « dos platanos »… que sais je encore, je ne m’en lasse pas et pourtant j’y vais très souvent et j’y ai déjà vécu pendant 10 ans ! Merci pour votre reportage… que saudades !

  12. Great post. I was chscking constantly this blog and I’m impressed!
    Very useful information specifically the last part :
    ) I care for such information a lot. I was seeking this certain info for a long time.
    Thank you andd best of luck.

  13. There are some of you out there who probably haven’t heard of This is one of those must see sites. It’s full of extremely attractive ladies. You’re going to want to put down your sandwich when visiting this site. It’s impossible to focus on anything but the babes they have to offer.

  14. We are a group of volunteers and starting a brand new
    scheme in our community. Your website offered us with
    useful info to work on. You’ve done an impressive job and
    our whole group can be thankful to you.

  15. If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

  17. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

  19. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  20. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  21. Sorry for the huge review, but I’m really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.

  22. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  23. This is a new list for today. I’m sorry about the last two lists. You may find some proxies not working the way they should. There was also duplicates in the list. I’m still learning about free public proxies. I hope you can make good use out of this list.

  24. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  25. If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

  26. You’re not going to be able to take your eyes off of these babes. Each and every one of these girls are super hot. This is the one site where you can have an unlimited amount of fun. That site is and you’re going to want to bookmark it.
