Living down here on the Gulf coast, I've noticed that palm trees tend to bend toward the water. At first I thought this was due to increased sunlight reflecting off the water, but it turns out it has to do with coastal erosion. That is to say the seaward side of coastal palms tends to erode away, and the trees gradually lean out. Yet naturally they always try to grow straight up, so the net effect is a bowing of the trunk if the erosion is gradual, but it can be 90-degrees if the failure is rapid and the tree does not die.
Building bike paths alone will not get Americans out of their cars and onto bicycles. To create a thriving bike culture in America's cities, people must begin to view bicycling as Europeans do — not just as a way of exercising, but as a serious form of urban mass transportation. And if someone parked their bicycle in this huge bike rack, where might they find a bite to eat?
De Vere Group is a hotels and leisure business which until the late 1990s was a brewing company known as Greenall's. It used to be listed on the London Stock Exchange and was once a constituent of the FTSE 100 Index. In September 2006, De Vere Group was acquired by The Alternative Hotels Group plc, a joint venture between HBOS and eight investors led by Richard Balfour-Lynn, for £745.5 million. The Alternative Hotels Group plc renamed itself De Vere Group again in December 2010. De Vere Group sold Greenall's London Dry Gin for £7 million in a private equity-backed management buyout in August 2011, and Balfour-Lynn stood down as chief executive one month later.
Hi Ern. It's a 12' Werner folding ladder. Worth about $179 at Lowe's. It has a very distinctive knuckle design and exposed end rungs. Wren
Hi Ernie, Longtime reader , first time responder. I've identified your ladder -- enclosed please find 2 photos of the ladder I purchased in late 2003 from the TV shopping Channel, QVC.It's cost was approx. $300, but was well worth the price. Regards, and keep up the good work. Francis.
Wait, why does the Canadian Lowes only charge $179 Canadian -- which is like what, $23 US dollars? -- but our Lowes charges us $256 for the same fucking 12' ladder, but only $212 for a 16' one??! Man, this is some bullshit!
Anyway. If like me, you've watched the Star Wars movies a million times as a kid but still think your memory might be a little rusty with age, now might be a good time to to refresh your memory by watching Star Wars So Far by Eclectic Method. You're welcome.
A concrete pump is a machine used for transferring liquid concrete by pumping. There are two types of concrete pumps, the first type being attached to a truck or longer units are on semi-trailers. It is known as a boom concrete pump because it uses a remote-controlled articulating robotic arm (called a boom) to place concrete accurately. Boom pumps are used on most of the larger construction projects as they are capable of pumping at very high volumes and because of the labour saving nature of the placing boom. They are a revolutionary alternative to truck-mounted concrete pumps. The second main type of concrete pump is either mounted on a truck or placed on a trailer, and it is commonly referred to as a line pump or trailer-mounted concrete pump. Show me where this concrete pump was parked.
As the White House continues to turn a blind eye to the growing threat of terrorism both at home and abroad, as more and more armed citizens are using firearms for self defense, just how successful was this past Black Friday for firearm sales? Well, the FBI reported the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) processed 185,345 transactions on November 27th, making it the highest single day on record. And if you are looking for a few stocking stuffers for the shooter in your life? I would kindly point you towards a few
