I notice they have fencing between the County Line Lake and the parking lot. That is a good thing, otherwise people would be running the grocery carts off into the lake, like they used to do at Pearl Lake, when Winn Dixie was in there years ago. I like the coke vending machine up front….the guy told me to give the coke vending machine a hug, and I looked at him funny, and he told me to go ahead and hug it, so I did, and out came a can of coke. I thought that was a cute promotion! Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.

Best Buy geeks freak out when they see that, but I don’t care, I type from memory, not chicken peck. I don’t worry about the dust, or the cat scratches either, but they freak out….lol Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Reply From The History ChannelOn this day in history, April 1st, 1700 English pranksters begin popularizing the annual tradition of April Fool’s Day by playing practical jokes on each other.Although the day, also called All Fools’ Day, has been celebrated for several centuries by different cultures, its exact origins remain a mystery. Some historians speculate that April Fools’ Day dates back to 1582, when France switched from the Julian calendar to the Gregorian calendar, as called for by the Council of Trent in 1563. People who were slow to get the news or failed to recognize that the start of the new year had moved to January 1 and continued to celebrate it during the last week of March through April 1 became the butt of jokes and hoaxes. These included having paper fish placed on their backs and being referred to as “poisson d’avril” (April fish), said to symbolize a young, easily caught fish and a gullible person.Historians have also linked April Fools’ Day to ancient festivals such as Hilaria, which was celebrated in Rome at the end of March and involved people dressing up in disguises. There’s also speculation that April Fools’ Day was tied to the vernal equinox, or the first day of spring in the Northern Hemisphere when Mother Nature fooled people with changing the unpredictable weather.April Fools’ Day spread throughout Britain during the 18th century. In Scotland, the tradition became a two-day event, starting with “hunting the gowk,” in which people were sent on phonyAliens attack earth!errands (gowk is a word for cuckoo bird, a symbol for a fool) and followed by Tailie Day, which involved pranks played on people’s derrieres, such as pinning fake tails or “kick me” signs on them.For the complete article on Welles, go here……That Orson Welles hoax just never gets old.In modern times, people have gone to great lengths to create elaborate April Fools’ Day hoaxes. Newspapers, radio and TV stations and Web sites have participated in the April 1 tradition of reporting outrageous fictional claims that have fooled their audiences. In 1957, the BBC reported that Swiss farmers were experiencing a record spaghetti crop and showed footage of people harvesting noodles from trees; numerous viewers were fooled. In 1985, Sports Illustrated tricked many of its readers when it ran a made-up article about a rookie pitcher named Sidd Finch who could throw a fastball over 168 miles per hour. In 1996, Taco Bell, the fast-food restaurant chain, duped people when it announced it had agreed to purchase Philadelphia’s Liberty Bell and intended to rename it the Taco Liberty Bell. In 1998, after Burger King advertised a “Left-Handed Whopper,” scores of clueless customers requested the fake sandwich.For the REAL article on April Fool’s Day, go here. I think this is the first year, in a long time, that my husband didn’t remember to April fool me. I guess because it was Easter…..lol My newspaper delivery person is April fooling both of us constantly, as we have to call constantly to the customer service, and report that we are not getting our newspaper, way too often. So again today, we didn’t get our Sunday newspaper. I said,” Okay, I’ll just go up to the Dollar Tree and buy one for a dollar, since it is Sunday’s edition.” I asked did they still sell them, and the cashier said “yes”, and showed them to me, and I was like, “where is the front page, you know, like the news, sports, and like, the local news?” She informed me that the newspaper is all ads, and coupons only, and I said, ” What?” “You have got to be kidding me!” She said that people buy them just for the ads and coupons….OMG, you know how I responded!….LOL Mama Mia I would say that I got April fooled today. We were at one of the Walmarts today, and I saw that they had the blood bank bus set up, and I thought I will donate blood, and then we will head on home. There were only two people ahead of me, and I was in that blood bus for over an hour and a half while my husband, and Joey Bo Bo Buttafucco waited outside in the heat, and the shade of some trees! My husband asked what took so long, and I said they were hooking up the blood needles to only one person at a time, even though they had several lounge chaises to lay on! They had the people there lying down, but waited until each person’s blood unit was completed before they hooked up another person to donate?????? I have never had it take that long to give blood even with more people ahead of me, in other donation places, but at least, I found out my blood pressure has come way down, and is now below the average/normal numbers that my doctor wanted me to achieve. Any of you ever had it take that long to donate, with that few people? April 1, 2018 at 10:43 pm Mama Mia Reply 5 COMMENTS Reply You have entered an incorrect email address!

The house is located on the edge of lake Rupanco, in the south of Chile. The 160 x 30 meters site has a 36 meters slope and south-facing views of the lake.Save this picture!The house programme was meant to include a lounge and an office where books, photos and fishing tackle could be kept. The dining room, kitchen and terrace were to have visual continuity, participating at once together and separately in the one space. On the upper floor, the bedrooms are arranged at the far ends of the volumes and connected by a wide corridor that converts this space into an extra area; this gallery extends outwards until it touches the high part of the terrain, making use of the natural slope and generating a secondary, independent entrance.Save this picture!The outside of the house blends in with the surroundings by borrowing the shapes and textures of the buildings in the area. The structure is of pine, the facades of treated pine and the interior facings of untreated mañío and ulmu wood. Save this picture!The exterior has been treated with a black sealer much used in rural buildings in the south of Chile to protect them from the persistent rain. In the course of time the facades will change color and the house will become established and gradually blend in with the other buildings in the area.Save this picture!The house is organised in two parallel volumes in a woodland clearing, with each element orientated towards its optimum rapport with the landscape: in the upper part towards a wood of myrtle trees and autochthonous bushes; towards the front, the view between the tops of the trees and the lake; and towards the sides, the hermetic, impermeable planes, which from time to time are cut back to allow for the entrance of light.Project gallerySee allShow lessiPhone replacement for the bubble levelArticlesTriangle House / JVASelected Projects Share House on Lake Rupanco / Alejandro Beals, Christian Beals CopyHouses•Puyehue, Chile CopyAbout this officeAlejandro Beals, Christian BealsOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlass#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDabasPuyehueWoodHouses3D ModelingChilePublished on July 22, 2008Cite: “House on Lake Rupanco / Alejandro Beals, Christian Beals” 22 Jul 2008.

In particular, IoF is asking its members to highlight ways their candidates can get involved in their local areas and nationally in Parliament, such as through supporting local fundraising, engaging with regional IoF groups, and by attending IoF events across the country.IoF chief executive Peter Lewis has also written an open letter to all party leaders urging them to support fundraising in the next Parliament. In it, he specifically calls for more to be done to sustain smaller charity fundraising and to help expand legacy giving.In addition, the IoF has produced a new General Election briefing Supporting Charity Fundraising: General Election 2017. This will form the basis of the IoF’s engagement with parliamentarians after the election and outlines specific ways MPs and the next government can support fundraising in the new parliament.The IoF’s briefing, toolkit, and open letter can be downloaded from the IoF’s website.Mike Smith, head of external affairs at the IoF, said:“Fundraising is a vital profession – raising nearly £10billion every year for good causes that everyone benefits from – and this campaign is all about making sure that candidates from all parties know about this.“At election time the best way to reach politicians is locally in their constituencies and so we are delighted to be asking our members today to join us in speaking up for fundraising. We hope that this will make sure that those elected on 8th June know a bit more about our members and their work, and are even more ready to support and celebrate excellent fundraising.”  133 total views,  1 views today Advertisementlast_img read more

Is More Normal Crop Weather Possible in 2020?

first_img Facebook Twitter Ryan-Martin-look-to-2020-weatherWeather in 2019 was unprecedented because of how moisture hit corn and soybean fields, not so much how much of it came. In May twenty-one of thirty-one days saw rain, and the pattern was similar in April and June. Planting windows were very hard to come by.Hoosier Ag Today meteorologist Ryan Martin told the Wednesday seminar crowd at the Indiana Farm Equipment and Technology Expo he doesn’t see a repeat of that in spring 2020.“I can almost flat out guarantee it won’t be that,” he said. “It was unprecedented. As I take a look at the trends I see developing now, I think we come out of a very active March month to finished out winter with near to slightly below normal precipitation totals for April. May will be right around that normal area as well. What that means is we can generally see bigger windows of opportunity to do something. I think this year coming up we have a much better chance of getting the crop in the ground on time.”Prior to that point even arriving, Martin tells HAT he expects a very interesting January.“I think January is cold. We’ve seen polar air move out a couple of times already here even as we finish out 2019 and look at the big warmth that we expect to come in here the week of Christmas and toward the New Year. I think that sets us up for the pendulum to swing hard the other way with January being cold, February probably staying slightly below normal on temperatures, and we do see an active March in terms of precipitation, and February with the cold air is probably going to have a few clippers that bring some snow as well.”Throughout the 2020 growing season, as early as it is to forecast with assurance, Martin says precipitation could be “fairly close” to normal with a drier August possible, maybe also slightly drier in June. Trends suggest a fairly hot July 2020 is a distinct possibility.Subscribe to our free daily newsletter By Andy Eubank – Dec 18, 2019 Facebook Twitter SHARE Leave this field empty if you’re human: center_img Home Indiana Agriculture News Is More Normal Crop Weather Possible in 2020?

Right now we are in the middle of our annual Revival Alliance Conference, enjoying a beautiful move of the Holy Spirit. We are also celebrating the 20th anniversary of HRock Church, and this Saturday, April 26, our son Gabriel will marry the love of his life, Monica Chang. Monica is everything we have prayed for in a mate for Gabe, and we couldn’t be happier for him!As I anticipate their wedding, my mind is full of joy and hope that they will find a timeless love and a lifelong companionship in their marriage relationship. This news story, that broke a few days ago, is a beautiful illustration of just that type of relationship.Kenneth and Helen Felumlee from Ohio recently celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary. They were inseparable since meeting as teenagers, and were still so in love that they held hands every morning at breakfast. Helen, 92, died of old age on April 12, and Kenneth, 91, died 15 hours later. The couple are survived by their 8 children, numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren.One daughter commented, “Those two were so close, they were really one. We knew when one went, the other was going to go. Twelve hours after Mom went, Dad quickly began to fade. He was ready. He just didn’t want to leave Mom by herself.” She stated that 24 close family members and friends surrounded her father’s bedside and sang his favorite hymns, read Scripture and prayed with him. Throughout their lifetimes both of her parents taught Sunday school and were actively involved in the local Methodist Church. Their story of committed love has received nearly 5000 comments.As I contemplated their love and dedication to each other, the Lord said, “This is a picture of the relationship I always wanted between Me and you.” He reminded me that when He created Adam, He breathed the life of His very own spirit into Adam, and Adam became one spirit with Him.However when Adam sinned, he was separated from God. None of us will ever realize the depth of grief that separation brought to God as He mourned the loss of His relationship with us. He chose to join us in death, taking our sin upon Himself and raising us up together with Him in His resurrection. In that action, God offers to join Himself to us again in spirit, if we will only say “I do” to His love proposal.Father God makes it clear that just as two become one in marriage, we become one with God when we say “yes” to Him. (Ephesians 5:31–32) So next time you attend a wedding, remember that God offers all of us the opportunity to join ourselves to Him. When we become one with God, everything He has is ours, including His promise of eternal love.
