The Brown Pelican occurs on both coasts in the Americas. On the Atlantic Coast and Gulf Coast they distribute from Nova Scotia to Venezuela, and to the mouth of the Amazon River. On the Pacific Ocean they are found from British Columbia to south central Chile, and including the Galapagos Islands. Some immature birds may stray to inland freshwater lakes. After nesting, North American birds move in flocks further north along the coasts, returning to warmer waters for winter. Their young are hatched in broods of about 3, and eat around 150 lbs of fish in the 8–10 month period they are cared for. It eats mainly fish and amphibians as well as crustaceans. The nest location varies from a simple scrape on the ground on an island to a bulky stick nest in a low tree. These birds nest in colonies, usually on islands. Groups of Brown Pelicans often travel in single file, flying low over the water's surface.
In 1992, Air Inter Flight 148 crashed while approaching an airport in Strasbourg, France. There were many factors involved in the crash, but a two-year investigation on the accident concluded that the most likely explanation for the crash was, basically, a shitty, ridiculously small display screen. The pilots intended the plane to descend toward the airport at an angle of -3.3 degrees, which would have put them at a descent rate of 800 feet per minute. So, according to the report, they likely entered "-3.3" into the autopilot and relaxed. The catch is when they typed in "-3.3," the autopilot happened to be set in the wrong mode -- feet per minute, instead of degrees. So those digits were interpreted as a descent rate of 3,300 feet per minute -- over four times faster than they intended. By the time the pilots noticed the error, they had a huge mountain coming their way pretty fast. And if you think that's fucking ridiculous, wait until you read about the damage assessment meeting prior to the Space Shuttle Columbia disaster.
Mosses are small, soft plants that are typically 1–10 cm tall, though some species are much larger. They commonly grow close together in clumps or mats in damp or shady locations. They do not have flowers or seeds, and their simple leaves cover the thin wiry stems. The life of a moss starts from a haploid spore. The spore germinates to produce a protonema, which is either a mass of thread-like filaments or thalloid. Moss protonemata typically look like a thin green felt, and may grow on damp soil, tree bark, rocks or boulders, concrete, or almost any other reasonably stable surface. This is a transitory stage in the life of a moss, but from the protonema grows the gametophore that is structurally differentiated into stems and leaves. A single mat of protonemata may develop several gametophore shoots, resulting in a clump of moss.
Hello Big Ern... Read your site today and I was shocked to see that you bought some Z-max ammo. Then I read the reason why. I understand, but my friend you are being cornholed if cheapo ball ammo is $16.99 a box. I recently bought some ammo for my SKS, and it was $6.99 a box for 20 rounds. The brand I bought was Tula, but there was Wolf and others available for the same price. As for rolling your own, I do agree that it saves money (especially on if I were to reload for my .45acp), but I think you would be hard pressed to find re-loadable brass in 7.62x39. Oh, it exists, but is not common or inexpensive. And that's just the brass. That does not take into account powder, primer, and bullet. Again this is largely because the VAST majority of factory loaded 7.62x39 ammo is steel case and berdan primed. If the factory stuff was nice boxer primed brass cases, it would work out very well to roll your own just using once fired factory brass. Just a sampling of 7.62x39 ammunition prices. As you can see, you are getting robbed at Bass Pro Shops if cheapo ball is over 8 bucks a box. Just tryin to look out for ya, even if you did buy some Z-max ammo. Take care and keep up the good work with LBEH and EHOWA. Jason
Normally I use ammo engine for any of my bulk purchases, that was just a one time grab for the sake of convenience. Here, why don't you take some of these dating tips from 1953 otherwise you know, things might get out of hand.
Draw Something is a great game. The premise is simple—you're given a word to draw for your friend and they have to figure out what it is you're drawing. Some people have even gone way above and beyond to draw masterpieces out of simple words. The room for creativity is almost unlimited thanks to the wide selection of colors and the word choices, but what makes the game even better is when you take the word you're given—something as innocuous as “ball” — and draw it shoved up a person's ass for comedic effect. They'll still guess the word and get a chuckle out of it. Here are some of the most awesome drawings I've seen so far. of course if you desire something a little more cerebral for your mobile pleasure, you might consider Word Supreme instead.
Scalding -- from the Latin word calidus, meaning hot -- is caused by hot liquids or gases, most commonly occurring from exposure to high temperature tap water in baths or showers or spilled hot drinks. A so called immersion scald is created when an extremity is held under the surface of hot water, and is a common form of burn seen in child abuse. A blister is a "bubble" in the skin filled with serous fluid as part of the body's reaction to the heat and the subsequent inflammatory reaction. The blister "roof" is dead and the blister fluid contains toxic inflammatory mediators. Scald burns are more common in children, especially "spill scalds" from hot drinks and bath water scalds. Generally scald burns are first or second degree burns, but third degree burns can result, especially with prolonged contact.

On a hot July day in 1988, ground was broken for what today is the most efficient plant in a worldwide tire empire. Goodyear Napanee is celebrating its 20th birthday this year. “This is Goodyear's flagship plant,” said Tom Hogeboom with pride, referring to the operations first place in the Goodyear corporation when it comes to efficiency and waste reduction. “We had a big barbecue and tours, where our workers could bring in their family and friends,” said Hogeboom, describing the anniversary celebrations that were held over the weekend of June 21. The birthday party was nothing to smirk at either, with over 1,500 people in attendance. [read full article here]
Allium sativum, commonly known as garlic, is a species in the onion genus, Allium. Its close relatives include the onion, shallot, leek, chive, and rakkyo. Dating back over 6,000 years, garlic is native to central Asia, and has long been a staple in the Mediterranean region, as well as a frequent seasoning in Asia, Africa, and Europe. It was known to Ancient Egyptians, and has been used throughout its history for both culinary and medicinal purposes. Domestically, garlic is stored warm (above 64 °F) and dry to keep it dormant so it does not sprout. It is traditionally hung; softneck varieties are often braided in strands called plaits or grappes.
Ever since Bobby Petrino's affair with Jessica Dorrell came to light in the wake of his recent motorcycle accident, the illicit relationship has been dominating sports and gossip headlines alike. Arkansas's termination of Petrino is by no means the final act in this drama -- he can thank his bad judgment in hiring Dorrell as a member of the university's football staff for that. The Petrino scandal is still developing, but the nude photos that are allegedly on the way to the interwebs could be the last straw for Bobby's wife, Becky. Personally, I'm hoping the public dodges a bullet on this one. This whole mess is the scandal of the moment, but it's certainly not the first of its kind. So let's take a look at Jessica Dorrell and some other of sports' most infamous mistresses.
Swimming pool heating costs can be significantly reduced by using a pool cover. Outdoor pools gain heat from the sun, absorbing 75%–85% of the solar energy striking the pool surface. Though a cover decreases the total amount of solar heat absorbed by the pool, the cover eliminates heat loss due to evaporation and reduces heat loss at night through its insulating properties. Most swimming pool heat loss is through evaporation. The heating effectiveness of a cover depends on type. A transparent bubble cover is the most effective, as it allows the largest amount of solar flux into the pool itself. Thermal bubble covers are lightweight UV stabilized floating covers designed to minimize heat loss on heated swimming pools. Typically they are only fitted in spring and fall (autumn) when the temperature difference between pool water and air temperature is greatest.
