While a completely dead tree is easy to identify, a tree may be in danger even while some of its foliage is still healthy-looking. Take note of any dead branches or limbs and whether or not they are still connected to the tree. Sometimes branches from the top of the tree can break and fall into the lower portions of the tree, where they present a falling hazard. Dead branches and limbs should be removed if they are large enough to cause injury. Deep cracks in the tree's trunk or limbs, a weak spot in a branch union, visible decay in the tree's trunk or large limbs, and trees that lean too far in one direction also pose dangers as these trees or more likely to break or fall.
There are a lot of unsolved mysteries out there, but the identify of the man who taped Caitlyn's jaw shut is not one of them. This man should be hanged, drawn and quartered, then burned at the stake. Anything less would be uncivilized. And I mean Caitlyn the dog, not
Bruce Caitlyn Jenner.
Cats sleep twice as much as humans, and kittens sleep even more. Luckily, cat beds are a great option for cat owners who want to help their kitty get the best rest possible. Like humans, cats need plenty of rest, and disrupted or lack of sleep can be detrimental to your cat's health. Finding the right place to put those pet beds is important. It can be hard to get a cat to curl up in her new kitty bed, but it's important to find just the right place for your kitty to sleep.
Social media crowd-shaming can be toxic and destructive, but calling out inappropriate behavior also can lead to justice served. Brett Nelson, from Prineville, Oregon, was hiking at Tumalo Falls near Bend last Saturday when he encountered a man and two teenagers defacing a railing at the falls overlook. He asked them to stop and they refused, so he took their picture and posted it to Facebook. This has led to the Forest Service launching an investigation to find and perhaps prosecute them. No word on if anyone is trying to track down the person who defaced this picnic table.
The tibia, also known as the shinbone, is the larger and stronger of the two bones in the leg below the knee in vertebrates, and it connects the knee with the ankle bones. It is categorized as a long bone and is as such composed of a diaphysis and two epiphyses. The diaphysis is the midsection of the tibia also known as shaft or body. While the epiphyses are the two rounded extremities of the bone; an upper epiphysis(also known as superior or proximal) closest to the thigh and a lower epiphysis (also known as inferior or distal) closest to the foot. The tibia is commonly recognized as the strongest weightbearing bone of the body.
Over the weekend I stumbled across this beat to shit 1970 Super Bee. If you look closely through the rot holes by the trunk, you can actually see the coiled springs that make up what's left of the beack seat cushion.
Earlier this year, The Boss Lady broke her ankle was was reduced to using those mobility carts whenever we went into a store. We never had a problem finding one available at Target or Publix (the local grocery) or Costco. But every time we were forced into Wally world, there was a 90% chance all of the carts were already in use and she'd have to crutch it. Invariably the carts were always occupied by some morbidly obese 40-something slob with their ass fat hanging over the sides of the cart, picking their way through the cookie aisle. Normally I can shake off the ills of society pretty easily and just chalk it up to Walmart being Walmart, but this turned out to be one of those things that reallllyyy pissed me off. As we'd walk past I would always comment none too quietly, "Oh that's why we couldn't find a mobility cart, she must have fallen and broken her impulse control."
Like David Dudley says, "When someone you love walks through the door, even if it happens five times a day, you should go totally insane with joy."
When it comes to decorating your house, do you carefully arrange vignettes on tabletops and shelves? With a little patience and some strategic planning, each surface can become a mini-stage for your decor. Some people even revel in the joy of coordinating each design element, refusing to introduce pieces that clash with the style at hand. Photos are taken at different times in people's lives with different cameras that reflect various levels of technology. In other words, the pics don't all match! Some photos may be in color while others are in black and white. Then there's the task of framing the pictures in a way that flatters them. How do you display family photos with style?
The Rome Metro is an underground public transportation system that operates in Rome, Italy. The network opened in 1955, making it the oldest in Italy. The Metro comprises three lines – Line A (orange), Line B (blue) and Line C (green) – which operate on 54.7 kilometres of route, serving 68 stations. The original lines in the system, Lines A and B, form an X shape with the lines intersecting at Termini Station, the main train station in Rome. Line B splits at the Bologna station in two branches. Line C is not yet connected to the rest of the Metro network. Plans have also been announced for a fourth line, Line D.
The Neon Museum in Las Vegas, Nevada, United States, features signs from old casinos and other businesses displayed outdoors on over 6 acres (2.4 ha). The museum is located on Las Vegas Boulevard and McWilliams Avenue, across the street from Cashman Center and along the Las Vegas downtown museum corridor. For many years, the Young Electric Sign Company stored many of these old signs in their boneyard. The boneyard preserves over 150 neon signs from the Nevada area, but the signs were slowly being destroyed by exposure to the elements. The museum is slowly restoring the signs and placing them around the Fremont Street Experience.
Throughout the 1900s, collecting antique and replicated beer steins became very popular hobby not only among individual people, but in museums as well. Production of beer steins has become substantially large in America, but the largest producer of beer steins is Ceramarte of Brazil. The most traditional area of beer stein production is the Kannenbäckerland in the Westerwald region in Germany. This unique German potters region has been creating beer steins for centuries and is famous among the collectors as the original German beer stein producer.
Lafayette Square is a seven-acre public park located within President's Park, Washington, D.C. directly north of the White House. Planned as part of the pleasure grounds surrounding the Executive Mansion, this square was originally called "President's Park", which is now the name of the larger National Park Service unit. The park was separated from the White House grounds in 1804, when President Thomas Jefferson had Pennsylvania Avenue cut through. In 1824, the park was officially renamed in honor of the Marquis de Lafayette, the Frenchman who fought in the American Revolutionary War.
I wanted to delay today's post a little bit, in hopes that more information would be released about last night's shooting in South Carolina. Lots of media outlets are reporting the shooter had very distinctive: sweatshirt, car, and license plate. And yet nobody seems to know just what the fuck makes his sweatshirt distinctive, what the make and model of his car is, or what the fuckin his license plate number is.
Pat's King of Steaks is a Philadelphia restaurant specializing in cheesesteaks, and located at the intersection of South 9th Street, Wharton Street and East Passyunk Avenue in South Philadelphia, directly across the street from rival Geno's Steaks. It was founded in 1930 by brothers, Pat and Harry Olivieri, who are credited with the creation of the Philly cheesesteak. After pulling back from expansion and franchising efforts in the 1980s, the business was divided up by the Olivieri family. Harry and his son kept the original location, today run by Harry's grandson, Frank Jr. So here's an easy peasy challenge: show me exactly which sign this photo was taken with.
your weekend boob dump:
About a month or so ago, I was at the local pub and having a casual conversation with someone who had just recently moved to the Sunshine State from western New York. And I'll preface this with believe it or not, I wasn't the one to bring it up, but somehow the topic of gun ownership came up. As the topic turned to daily carrying a firearm, this individual made a comment that stuck out in my head. He said, "Oh I'd never need to carry a gun because I'd never go to a place where I would need one." At first glance, this might look like sound un-controversial reasoning. After all, one of the mantras of gun ownership is, AVOID STUPID PEOPLE DOING STUPID THINGS IN STUPID PLACES. Because no one says, "Well I've got a huge cash deposit to make, let me drive to the branch of my bank that's located in the part of town that has highest crime rates in the county." No one says, "Well it's my new girlfriend's birthday and I'm throwing her a surprise party, perhaps I should invite her repeat felon ex-husband with a restraining order against him." Instead, we just go on about our merry little lives assuming that as long as we color inside the lines, we're going to be safe just like we were yesterday, and the day before that, and the day before that.
The USS Franklin was one of 24 Essex-class aircraft carriers built during World War II for the United States Navy, and the fifth US Navy ship to bear the name. She was commissioned in January 1944, and served in several campaigns in the Pacific War, earning four battle stars. She was badly damaged by a Japanese air attack in March 1945, with the loss of over 800 of her crew, becoming the most heavily damaged United States carrier to survive the war. Movie footage of the actual attack was included in the 1949 film Task Force starring Gary Cooper. After the attack, she returned to the U.S. mainland for repairs, ultimately missing the rest of the war. The USS Franklin was sold for scrap in 1966.

Ernie, You all about the facts on issues. Can you elaborate on these? "The Harvard School of Public Health reports that "a broad array of evidence indicates that gun availability is a risk factor for homicide, both in the United States and across high-income countries. Case-control studies, ecological time-series and cross-sectional studies indicate that in homes, cities, states and regions in the US, where there are more guns, both men and women are at higher risk for homicide, particularly firearm homicide."
