The Movie Lady

London falls hard in this one, not soberly into the financial abyss of Brexit (which all the British bookies got wrong anyway) but by a 9/11 times 10 Armageddon wrought attack by the global enemy number one, Middle Eastern Terrorists, who now really are wreaking havoc weekly across the world.

Omya employee helps save dehydrated woman

July 12, 2016

LUCERNE VALLEY — With just over 200 acres, the sprawling Omya mining plant high above the town of Lucerne Valley has an ample amount of nooks and crannies rarely traveled by workers or visitors.
