While I have been contributing to a variety of citizen science bird related studies over the years, I have never been involved in submitting plant related data. I have always hoped that my nature journals and records will be of value to researchers in the future, especially as our climate continues to change, so Project BudBurst looks like a program I can sign on to, and mayapple will probably be my chosen plant. We have several huge patches on our property.
All comebacks are impressive by dint of courage to change and the grit to make it work. But not all are alike. Chef Allen revived his long standing landmark restaurant in brilliant fashion last year via refurbishment and a revamped menu concept. It is preferable for thick or nonslippery bark. Patch budding requires a piece of bark on a rootstock plant to be replaced by a bud containing piece of bark from another plant.

Rigid ductwork can also be made of polyurethane foam that’s coated with aluminum. In very large buildings, galvanized metal is sometimes used for the main ductwork. Some of these are large enough to walk through! Of course, the ductwork in your house is much smaller..
Written by Saunders, the script is very loose, bouncing around without much focus before a series of impatient, nonsensical conclusions. Basically, it’s little more than a flimsy framework that includes brief scenes for series regulars (including Jane Horrock’s airhead assistant, June Whitfield’s dotty mum, Celia Imrie’s rival PR and Kathy Burke’s bulldog editor), plus a few new characters like Chris Colfer’s stylist. All of these people have their moments, but never quite emerge as much more than comedy sketch figures.
ANYONE can interview former President Carter AND look good because the man is legendary. Fact he didn get a second term is only because the Republicans manipulated the Iran and Oil situation to make him look bad and send us down the road we have now arrived at. Much worse off for having voted in a Bush to replace that great and honorable man..
There no more bittersweet signal for shoppers that summer is coming to a close than the big OPENING CEREMONY clearance sale (Click on the flyer at right) which, like clockwork, is happening this weekend, the last one before Labor Day. As the innovative retailer/wholesaler has become increasingly popular, its offsite final clearance sale has generated more interest and even longer lines.
