    While this is an inexpensive way to obtain gravel, it is also illegal. Kentucky regulations clearly require anyone (including governments) to obtain a permit from the Department for Natural Resources before removing gravel from a creek. Anyone found removing gravel from a creek without a permit is subject to citation and monetary penalties up to $5,000 per day.

  • Game of thrones

    It’s no surprise to people who know me that I am not a fancy Nancy.

    I’m not plain, and I am (I hope) feminine, but I’m definitely not lacy, doily, flowery foo-foo.
