The Narcotic Farm

Wednesday, January 14, 2009

From 1935 until 1975, most junkies went to the Narcotic Farm, a prison/farm/research center for drug addiction. Nancy Campbell and J.P. Olsen, co-authors of The Narcotic Farm, talk about the prison’s rise and why it was ultimately shut down.

will be on TV Fri. Jan. 16 at 12:00 noon

Hello Gurus,
There's a lot of clunking going on in my house; the boiler seems to clunk on (or off) loudly, and a lot of clunking when the dishwasher is running, but the clunk is in a different part of the house.
What do you suggest?
Thank you
