    Title required work around.

    years ago, a friend of mine was, supposedly, given a 14' semi-vee aluminum boat. he didn't want it but i thought it would make an amusing little creek boat. DNR said no old registration and no bill of sale from the previously registered owner means no new registration. Said they needed at the minimum a letter of provenance. So he wrote one: To Whom It May Concern I received, what I believe to be, an Elgin V-hull aluminum boat, as a gift, from Mr. Bob Jones, sometime in the mid-1980's. The boat had been abandoned, on family property, from the time the property was acquired in the 1960's. There were no registration numbers, or state decals, on the hull. There was no I.D. plate, no serial number, and I can only speculate as to the date of manufacture. The hull was overgrown with brush. The wooden transom was rotted out, the hull was in serious disrepair, and the craft was not seaworthy. Mr. Jones allowed me to move the boat to my property, with plans for me to either repair the boat, or sell the hull as scrap aluminum. Mr. Jones died in 2008. The boat remained on my property, until tybee inquired about the possibility of obtaining the hull as a restoration project and it was subsequently sold, and moved to his property in another city. There is no information available as to the manufacturer, or the original purchaser. I can only account for the boat's history, for the past fifty years.These are the facts, as accurately as I can recall them. DNR said OK and sent me the registration. I cannot testify to the veracity of any of that letter except that i have the boat and use it regularly. i don't know if florida would accept such a letter but if you have a friend who has knowledge of the history of the boat and is willing....

    Linguine with Asparagus, Shrimp, and Scallions Anchovy and asparagus may seem a little odd, but here the anchovy brings what bacon or pancetta would to the asparagus and shrimp: it underscores and brings up their flavors, but isn’t allowed to dominate. Serves 4 as a main dish or 6 as a pasta course 1 pound asparagus, preferably fat-stemmed 2 bunches (about 2 dozen) slender scallions 1 ¼ pounds medium to large shrimp, peeled and deveined Salt ½ cup extra virgin olive oil 2 large cloves garlic, lightly crushed, peeled, and minced ¼ to ½ teaspoon hot red pepper flakes, to taste 1 pound linguine 1 teaspoon anchovy paste or 2 small anchovy fillets packed in olive oil, patted dry and minced 2 tablespoons finely chopped flat leaf (Italian) parsley 1 tablespoon finely chopped oregano 1. Bring 4 quarts water to a rolling boil in 6-8 quart pot. Wash and trim cut end of asparagus. Peel tough parts of stems (lower third) with vegetable peeler. Cut off tips and set aside; cut stems in 1-inch lengths. Trim scallions and thinly cut on diagonal into 1-inch-long pieces, separating white and green parts. Cut shrimp into 2-3 pieces. 2. Stir in small handful salt and asparagus stem pieces into boiling water. Cook 1 minute and lift out with skimmer. Keep water simmering. 3. Put oil and garlic in large, heavy-bottomed skillet or frying pan over medium-high heat. Sauté until garlic is fragrant, about 5-10 seconds after it begins sizzling. Add hot pepper flakes to taste and white parts of scallions and toss until scallion is translucent and garlic is barely beginning to color, about 30 seconds. Turn off heat. 4. Stir linguine into boiling water. Cook, stirring occasionally, until al dente using package suggestions as rough guide. When pasta is almost done, reheat skillet over medium-low heat. 5. Add shrimp, anchovy, asparagus stems, and asparagus tips to pan, raise heat, and season with salt if needed. Tossing constantly, cook until shrimp are just curled and pink. Add herbs and scallion greens and turn off heat. Toss well. 6. Drain pasta, immediately toss with sauce and serve. This sauce should not be served with cheese. NOTES: i tend to double the amount of asparagus, i like rotini instead of linguine and, for the sea food averse, you can substitute boneless/skinless chicken thighs (suitably cut up) for the shrimp serve with a very chilled sauvignon blanc

    Lyndon LaRouche - DTS

    LaRouche abhorred popular music; he said in 1980, “Rock was not an accidental thing. This was done by people who set out in a deliberate way to subvert the United States. It was done by British intelligence,” and wrote that the Beatles were “a product shaped according to British Psychological Warfare Division specifications.” LaRouche movement members have protested at performances of Richard Wagner’s operas, denouncing Wagner as an anti-Semite who found favor with the Nazis, and called a conductor “satanic” because he played contemporary music.

    on the one hand, batteries don't work as well when it's real cold. on the other, with a gas powered saw someone has to carry the fuel.

    Morality is Made-Up Mush

    "morality" is nothing more than a loose set of behaviors that keep the people around you from either running you off or killing you.

    Curly leaf disease fix

    they are brittle, don't live long, look great when flowering and in the fall when the leaves turn but do make excellent wood for the smoker when they outlive their usefulness.
