  1. Hay! We could use some of that
  2. I guess it all depends on where you live. Where I live the "shopping experience" does not really include the people at the store knowing the customers. All the stores in the area are Major Grocery Chains - and you do not get "personal service" form them. There is a new shopping "mega-area" that has just opened .... well, it has just expanded to become a mega area. It already has Publix, Walmart, SAM'S Club, and Aldi. This is where the a new Whole Foods is planned to open. The town also has a Lucky's and an Earth Fare as well as a locally owned Grocery store that specializes in "fresh foods". So, I am not sure that, for us, the merger of WF and Amazon will make any difference.
  3. Gideon, Delta Dorado Star System Gideon has a naturally near-sterile environment whose inhabitants have remarkable self-regenerative abilities and thus are incredibly long-lived. However, under the rulership of the human government, the planet, when the Enterprise encountered it, was severely overpopulated and life was miserable. This planet is a good example of just why the Kingdom is the only answer to a lasting future with beneficial living conditions. Even when mankind has what seems to be everlasting life, without following Jehovah's direction and having His Kingdom, long life alone does not result in true happiness. There were no KH's on Gideon ..... there was no room to build them.
  4. BTW - as for the lakes in this area ..... Most have a nice variety of Bream, Speck' (speckled perch) the Florida Crappie, Bass (a wide variety of them), Catfish as well as some quite undesirable fish like Gar and Mudhish as well as Gators. We have a couple of lakes nearby that are well known for the number and size of the Alligators. I should also mention that these lakes also have a number of frogs, including "Bullfrogs" that have very distinctive calls/croaking. The reason I mention this is because, as loud as these frogs can get, when you hear the bellow of a "bull gator" you will NOT confuse it with the bellow of a frog. The bull gator is much deeper, much louder and much longer in duration. It is a one-of-a-kind sound.
  5. Before using any of the images from the WT site - it may be a good idea to read the "Terms and Privacy". It has been updated.
  6. Bajor, Alpha Quadrant, Bajoran Sector Bajor class M planet that has five moons. A day on Bajor has 26 hours. Bajor's atmosphere has a greenish tint; as a result, oceans viewed from space will appear more green than blue. Bajor is the seventh planet in the system that orbits the star Bajor-B'hava'el. It is the largest planet in the system and had five moons. Bajor was occupied by the Cardassian Union. During this time, the Cardassians not only decimated the Bajoran population and destroyed large parts of its infrastructure, but also poisoned several areas of the planet in order to compromise the food supply after their withdrawal. The Bajoran religion, also called The Way of the Prophets, is a major unifying force on the planet. Due to their religion being so intricately tied to their entire political, social and economic systems they never embraced the Truth - therefore, there have never been any KH's on Bajor.
  7. Yeehaw Junction, Florida, US Yeehaw Junction is a census-designated place (CDP) in Osceola County, Florida, United States. As of the 2010 census, it had a population of 240. The location was named after the Yeehaw station on the Florida East Coast Railway, several miles to the east on SR 60 in Indian River County. There are no KH's in Yeehaw Junction.
  8. The fact that so many would drive so far and spend so much to look at something that only takes a few minutes would seem to answer that question ..... Then there are the people that will still look at it with their bare eyes even though there have been so many warning not to.
  9. Good thing it wasn't a "port-o-let" - they have a blue liquid that would be horrible to try to rescue a phone in. The other day I was coming out of a convenience store when a girl who had gotten out of the car parked next to my truck threw some trash in the waste can outside the store. She wandered back to the car and back to the trash and back toward the car. then she told the guy in the car, "I threw my phone in the trash." She didn't seem to know what to do. He told her to just get it out. She went back to the trash and looked in - surprised, she exclaimed, "Hey, It's right here on top!" She reached in and got her phone - no problems at all.
  10. I was in a boat so I won't make excuses for the picture being "downhill" That particular lake (Lake Alto) is only about 573 acres. It is a bit small but plenty deep enough for water skiing. The nearby University uses it for practice and training for rowing. If someone really wants to water ski, it would be better to go to the another lake that connects to this lake by a now-impassable canal (Lake Santa Fe). This larger lake is more than 10 times larger and deeper. They are both good for fishing or relaxing.
  11. We weren't able to stay out long and they just weren't biting
  12. You could save that goose statue for the next time through the alphabet
  13. This is where we wen fishing today - this lake is about 5 minutes from our house

  15. You do not need the whole helmet - just the "lense"
