A plank is timber that is flat, elongated, and rectangular with parallel faces that are higher and longer than wide. Used primarily in carpentry, planks are critical in the construction of ships, houses, bridges, and many other structures. Planks also serve as supports to form shelves and tables. Planks are often used as a work surface on elevated scaffolding, and need to be wide enough to provide strength without breaking when walked on. The plank was the basis of maritime transport: wood floats on water, and abundant forests meant wooden logs could be easily obtained and processed, making planks the primary material in ship and dock building. However, since the 20th century, wood has largely been supplanted in ship construction by iron and steel, to decrease cost and improve durability.
Winter has long been the arch nemesis of asphalt roads and parking lots. The freeze/thaw cycle, salt, and snow plows -- especially when combined with traffic -- wreak absolute havoc on the condition of the asphalt. When the ice melts and spring rolls around, what will the roads and parking lots you've worked on look like? And what does that mean for your business? First off, know that the pavement will be in worse condition than you saw it last fall. Hairline cracks will have expanded, areas with minor alligator cracking might now exhibit extensive alligatoring, and areas of slight depression or minor damage might easily be full-fledged potholes -- or potholes that were created and treated with temporary material during the winter. Cracks that form in the pavement surface and are not properly sealed allow harmful substances to infiltrate the pavement -- water, impurities, debris and sunlight -- that will accelerate failure of the pavement surface.
The Panhandle Pioneer Settlement, a living-history museum in Blountstown, Florida, has a collection of 18 historical buildings, dating from 1820 to the 1940s. Finding it on a map isn't that difficult at all, but can you find a spot that's one mile and a right turn away?

Instructions to play a one-hour version of the game are also included with this item.
OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! I suddenly have the urge to put a burger on top of my pancakes. I doubt they'd serve such a thing at this seafood restaurant, but if you can find out where she's dining at, I'd like to take a closer look at the menu if you can find it for me. It seems to be Captain-something?
Grab bars are safety devices designed to enable a person to maintain balance, lessen fatigue while standing, hold some of their weight while maneuvering, or have something to grab onto in case of a slip or fall. A caregiver may use a grab bar to assist with transferring a patient from one place to another. Grab bars increase accessibility and safety for people with a variety of disabilities or mobility difficulties. Although they are most commonly seen in public handicapped toilet stalls, grab bars are also used in private homes, assisted living facilities, hospitals, and nursing homes. Grab bars are most commonly installed next to a toilet or in a shower or bath enclosure. Some grab bars also have a light feature and double as a night light offering up a little more safety at night when using the bathroom.
