I have to admit I was dead set against organ donation when I was younger. Not sure why. Didn't seem right, not sure if it was beacuse I thought my well being would be devalued while still alive or if it was just being selfish.
Then in 2000 my wifes mom was put on the heart transplant list. She...

We built our house 4 years ago. All of downstairs is 10' except living area which is 11'. In the dining room we did 10ft with a 1' tray ceiling. Have 6" crown for all 10', triple crown in living room and double crown in dining room. Came out really nice. I would suggest going with 8' door/openin...

As bad as the average is we do seem to get on base a lot and do not strike out that much. Too bad our baserunning is horrible and costs us outs and runs.

Any rain up north from this point on is going to cause a good rise. But focus on rain in the Ohio Valley.
If you look at the map of the drainage area it looks like most comes from the west. This is not true. The Missouri and the Red have reserviors and dams throughout their entire reach, whi...
| Outdoor Board|| re: Mississippi water levels - ScottieP on 4/8/14 at 10:08 pm|
The river rising really depends on rain in the Ohio Valley as someone else said. The river could see a large rise if you get what we call a rain on snow event. Basically the snow is starting to melt, then a bunch of rain falls which causes the snow to melt rapidly. The combination of the melting s...
