    In the early days of World War II an amazing story of survival unfolded when American icon WWI ace Eddie Rickenbacker and six others were plucked out of the Pacific some three weeks after their B-17 crashed into the sea.

    By Billy A. Rea

    One of the most intriguing stories to emerge during World War II occurred just shy of a year after the Pearl Harbor attack and involved an American icon. The incident captured the attention of the

    Hi all. I'm considering doing raised bed vegetable gardens this year and would love some information from those who know.

    What is the best material to build raised beds from?

    What is a good size for a bed? I can do multiple beds if I want as I have a lot of space.

It was extremely difficult to get the grout off the edges of the tiles- around the corners and along some edges. I was concerned about digging out some of the grout by pushing too hard at the edges as well. Now, the grout has set and I need some advice ab

  • African Mango Diet

    3 years ago

    I don't get into diet fads. In fact, I don't like to diet. I love to eat. However, I ran across this today and I am thinking seriously of trying it.

    The sites below describe the weight loss advantages of African Mango Extract. I did run across one article that suggests that one stay away from this extract made in China. However, I think that most people understand that anything to be ingested made in China, be avoided.

    This is interesting stuff! :yes4:


    What this project is

    This project looks at the watercolour paintings of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood (PRB) who were painting around the latter half of the 19th century in Britain (the ‘Golden age of British watercolours’) and suggests some practical project ideas for art works which we can all do.

    Beatles fanatics have stalked four unreleased songs for the past 30 years. Colliding Circles and the polemic Left Is Right (And Right Is Wrong) are attributed to John Lennon. George Harrison penned Pink Litmus Paper Shirt. And Paul McCartney composed Deck Chair, a vaudeville number akin to Honey Pie.

    Conspiracy-minded Fab Four fans suspect the coveted tunes are accruing value in a vault until another Anthology sequel is unleashed.
