In April 1987, seven-year-old Michelle Snow was killed by a lawn dart thrown by one of her brothers' playmates in the backyard of their home in Riverside, California. "One kid tossed his Jart too far and too high, sailing it over the backyard fence and into the front yard, where Snow's daughter, seven-year-old Michelle, was playing with her dolls. The Jart came down right on her and, with what researchers estimate as 23,000 pounds of pressure per square inch, penetrated her skull." In the previous eight years, 6,100 people had been sent to the emergency room due to lawn darts. Out of that total, 81 percent were 15 or younger, and half of them were 10 or younger. On the week the commission voted to ban the product, an 11-year-old girl in Tennessee was hit by a lawn dart and sent into a coma. Due in part to Snow's death, the Consumer Product Safety Commission reinstated the outright ban on lawn darts on December 19, 1988.
Sand mining is a practice that is used to extract sand, mainly through an open pit. The current size of the sand mining market in the United States is slightly over a billion dollars per year. The industry has been growing by nearly 10% annually since 2005. The majority of the market size for mining is held by Texas and Illinois. Another reason for sand mining is for the extraction of minerals such as rutile, ilmenite and zircon, which contain the industrially useful elements titanium and zirconium. These minerals typically occur combined with ordinary sand, which is dug up from open pits, the valuable minerals being separated in water by virtue of their different densities, and the remaining ordinary sand re-deposited.

It happens. You may have made a tattoo mistake, or perhaps your artist wasn't up to par. Maybe your tattoo design was thoughtless, the application poor, or the placement just a bad idea. What can you do when you are left with the world's worst tattoo? Don't worry, you have a few options. Your best bet is to seek out the advice of a specialized tattoo cover-up artist. Many tattooists make their name in their ability to remaster old and poor designs.
FIRST: Hey Big Ern, Your pic for Local Color was indeed in Key West, FL but at a different location. The one in question is at 425 Greene Street, Key West, FL. The bar next door is Amigos but you cant see the sign because the sexy blonde is blocking it. The Dia de Muertos sign above Amigos isnt in the Google maps view but I am sure you can make out the rest. Cheers, Johnny
I'll be the first to admit there are many things in this world I don't know much about, but does anyone know where I can rent this huge party boat on the right? I think it's Key West based, and it looks like the telephone number ends in -256.
Between the shit that's going down over in Miami -- "John Rivera, president of the Miami-Dade Police Benevolent Association, said, `If the mayor's not going to provide security, then my recommendation, as an experienced law enforcement officer for nearly 40 years, is either buy yourself an attack dog, put bars on your windows and doors and get yourself some firearms because you're going to have to protect yourselves. We won't be able to.` -- and the shit that's going down over in Jonesboro, Arkansas, I think it would be a good idea if all you ladies took a cue from this little chick. I'm heading out this afternoon to mail in my Sig Sauer rebate form for two free mags and a pistol bag, and leaving me more money to stock up on some 9mm. And in case you too have picked up a Sig Sauer pistol recently, here is a blank rebate form. You're welcome.
WEGA was a pioneering German audio and video manufacturer, manufacturing some of Germany's earliest radio sets. WEGA, pronounced "Vega", was founded as Wuerttembergische Radio-Gesellschaft mbh in Stuttgart, Germany in the year 1923. In 1975, it was acquired by Sony Corporation. At this point, they were known throughout Europe for stylish and high-quality stereo equipment, designed by Hartmut Esslinger amongst others. Starting in 1998, Sony released a television line called FD Trinitron WEGA, a flat-screen television with a silver-colored cabinet. Sony continued to use the WEGA brand until 2005, when LCD displays superseded the company's Trinitron aperture grille-based CRT models.
Man, I flipped through all 250 pages but didn't find what I was really looking for: a Czechoslovakian OT-64.

The forests of North America abound with fallen trees and limbs that the sun has already dried. They can become a fuel for wild fires, so the United States Forest Service and Natural Resources Canada generally allow any citizen to harvest them for heating homes. Private land owners will often also allow responsible persons to clean off their woods of this deadfall. Deadfall is a tree, or a portion of a tree, that is in danger of falling and presents a threat to life or property. Sometimes the hazard posed by a tree is obvious, such as when a tree is in visibly poor health or leaning precariously.
