I thought dynamite was from Sweden. How noble of those Swedes.

This does have me a bit puzzled though, because I thought Sweden and Scotland were two different places.




I think it was Lembert Dome, do I get a prize.

Go Chargers

or Broncos.

zBrown, there has been "commerce" between Scotland and Sweden since Pictish times. They would stop over in the Orkneys to cut a few more trees. Lots of sliding over the ice-mined waves between those two places, not to mention the open water routes.

But that image Mouse found, ^^ ^ well, there might be some new climbing challenges out there, and maybe some new patches of ground for those of us who are content with a patch. I have never understood greed very well. It is a curious affliction. I think Alfred endowed the Peace Prize because he was aghast at the uses of his discovery. Like Einstein felt.

I know it needs a touch.
Wino belonged to my mom.
She drank him to death.
They both loved it.
She's not here now.
Special day to fight.
Appalloed and dismayed,
I grieve
I sieve up my sleeve at you
And you and you and you
And you, too, yes, you
I'm talking to you, too
Like a leaky
Net of glossamer
I am not here.
My mom's not sacred.
Her memory is.
I mean my memories of her.
She was not ditzy
That was the wine.
Momellows.

This does have me a bit puzzled though, because I thought Sweden and Scotland were two different places.

Exploding myths are not part of the deal,here,
but I thought once that I was drunk:
but it turned out I was only Swedish.
Like Popeye the Viking,
I'm lookin' at you.

So everyone do, sometimes mostly,
miss their Targets occasionally,
but there's always Walmart.

Or was it that I was a Larson Learner
all my life,
like a Blackbird
waiting to be Freid.

Who is William Ruth?

Is he related to the Blue Ox?

Is he named for the daughter of Naomi?

Did he grow up "sourdough?"

That means he rose above adversity
and took the sheep by the horns
and learned to sled and shoot and throw snowballs into the dark
to scare off the phantom lights out there.
He should have had a flash attachment.

"How-w-w-DEE-E-E-E!
I'm jes' so proud to be here!"

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minnie_Pearl
Pearl's comedy was gentle satire of rural Southern culture, often called "hillbilly" culture.
Pearl always dressed in styleless "down home" dresses
and wore a hat with a price tag hanging from it, displaying the price of $1.98.

"Why, for two cents I could have new shoes, Roy."--Pearl to Acuff

"What is the difference between a mile square and a square mile?"--Old 'Low Country Mile' Silas and the Walleyes all wanna know

Quick-like, cuz their fingers are all pluggin' the dike.

Their famous song, Leaking on the Curb, starts out:

It's a Stormy Monday someplace, fer sure,
maybe Holland,
maybe France,
All you need to do is to sing and to dance
In underpants.

[Courtesy of Yahoo! Answers, not Wiki for once.]
This always gets a lot of wrong answers.
(zBrown never has a problem, though, cuz he ain't no square.)

1 mile square is a square one mile on each side, and has an area of 1 square mile.

1 square mile is any shape that has an area of 1 square mile.

What makes it more confusing is that 1 square mile is sometimes written as 1 mi˛, which seems to say "1 mi squared", but that is incorrect.



To reiterate, 1 mi˛ is spoken "One square mile" NOT "one mile square"



It's easier to understand if you use a number other than 1.

a 3 mile square is a square three miles on each side, and it has an ares of 9 square miles or 9 mi˛.

3 square miles is any shape that has an area of 3 square mile, or 3 mi˛.

Like a Bronco with an orange dream, 640 acres and a mule, one section at a time, using the horses and sparing the mule.
Cholly good!
