This thread might not be as titillating as its twin thread, but in an effort to keep the climbing nation abreast of positive growth with our community, perhaps it may serve as a top substitute.

Robert “Bobby” Kennedy is one of my favorite Bobs.

There's a bridge called Bob in Avon, Cowlowrado. . .

Bob the Bridge

In 1992, the Town of Avon, CO was faced with a problem. The railroad track ran smack across the middle of the main thoroughfare, Avon Road. With about 25 trains passing through a day, traffic would back up and cause gridlock as everyone waited for the train to pass.

Avon officials knew there had to be a better way. And there was: they dug about 20 feet under the existing road to create a new one. But, the new road had to cross over the Eagle River. With the help of 7 funding partners, Avon built a 50 yd., four-lane bridge to do the job.Unable to unanimously decide on a name for the bridge, the Avon Merchant's Association held a contest to give the new bridge a name. And the winning entry was an average, ordinary name (just like the bridge) ….. BOB.

A local promoter decided to host a festival to commemorate the bridge and all named "Bob" or just friends of "Bob".Avon received national attention for its refreshing sense of humor and everything snowballed from there.

The first event was held in 1992 and included such activities as: Bob-b-Q cook off; BobBall; bob Golf Putting Tournament; Bobby-sox concert and Bob-R-Shop Quartets. The festival continued for three years each Memorial Day Weekend. It ceased due to consistent weather problems and fizzled local enthusiasm.

After Pentax cameras ran a commercial around Christmas of 1997, interest returned to the event. The commercial began by saying, "Each year Avon, CO host a Festival for Bobs". The camera was being marketed as an easy to use, can't-go-wrong camera. Avon Town Council decided to combine two festivals into one: The BobFest and SummerFest. The new name : BobSummerFest.

In 1998, War and The Freddy Jones Band played. In 1999, Julian Lennon and Soul Asylum played. Once again, local enthusiasm has dwindled and Avon currently does not hold an annual event. Although, the Avon Recreation Center sells "Bob the Bridge signs" and you can frequently see people stopping by Bob to see it and take pictures.

A trademark infringement claim made by Bob Lépine against Procter & Gamble regarding their naming their home permanent product Bobbi was settled in the 1950s by a payment to Bob Lépine by P&G. The term is now in common usage and therefore is no longer a valid trademark. Similarly, the British "kirby grip" is derived from the trademark Kirbigrip, used by a Birmingham manufacturer of such pins, Kirby, Beard & Co. Ltd.

Another American Bob tale.

The American Bob-tail sounds like my kinda kitty-cat, neebee.
Breeders claim that Bobtails are playful, friendly, energetic and extremely intelligent, but some are born scared, not playful, and not very fast at opening up. American Bobtails have dog-like personalities, often play fetch, and greet their owners at the door. They are very tolerant of being picked up by younger children and handled like a sack of potatoes. They have been known to escape from closed rooms and fastened cages.[1] Bobtails also have a tendency to steal shiny objects and stash them away in a hiding place, requiring owners to know where their cat keeps their hoard when the owner wants to retrieve the items. [This sounds like it was written from personal experience.]

And I saw Bob Fuller a-comin' from miles away, kid. :)

And Ed, ya beat me to it. I woke up thinking Swifter thoughts than usual, but put it down to fast dreaming caused by drinking coffee too late last night. Then I recalled the Lost Arrow and Bob Swift.

Howdy, Swifter!

hey there say, all...


bob weight... for all you smart folks, :)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bob_(physics);
Reason for use

Although a pendulum can theoretically be any shape, any rigid object swinging on a pivot, clock pendulums are usually made of a weight or bob attached to the bottom end of a rod, with the top attached to a pivot so it can swing. The advantage of this construction is that it positions the centre of mass close to the physical end of the pendulum, farthest from the pivot. This maximizes the moment of inertia, and minimises the length of pendulum required for a given period. Shorter pendulums allow the clock case to be made smaller, and also minimize the pendulum's air resistance. Since most of the energy loss in clocks is due to air friction of the pendulum, this allows clocks to run longer on a given power source.

[edit] Use in clocks

Pendulum clock with visible bob
Traditionally, a pendulum bob is a round flat disk, lens-shaped in section, but bobs in older clocks often have decorative carving and shapes characteristic of the type of clock. They are usually made of a dense metal such as iron or brass. Lead is denser, but is usually avoided because of its softness, which would result in the bob being dented during its inevitable collisions with the inside of the clock case when the clock is moved.

In most pendulum clocks the rate is adjusted by moving the bob up or down on the pendulum rod. Moving it up shortens the pendulum, making it beat more quickly, and causing the clock to gain time. In the most common arrangement, the bob is attached to the pendulum with an adjustment nut at the bottom, on the threaded end of the pendulum rod. Turning the nut adjusts the height of the bob. But some bobs have levers or dials to adjust the height. In some precision clocks there is a smaller auxiliary weight on a threaded shaft to allow more fine adjustment. Tower clocks sometimes have a tray mounted on the pendulum rod, to which small weights can be added or removed, to adjust the rate without stopping the clock.

The weight of the bob itself has little effect on the period of the pendulum. However, a heavier bob helps to keep the pendulum moving smoothly until it receives its next push from the clock's escapement mechanism. That increases the pendulum's Q factor, making the motion of the pendulum more independent of the escapement and the errors it introduces, leading to increased accuracy. On the other hand, the heavier the bob is the more energy must be supplied by the clock's power source and more friction and wear occurs in the clock's movement. Pendulum bobs in quality clocks are usually made as heavy as the clock's movement can drive. A common weight for the bob of a one second pendulum, widely used in grandfather clocks and many others, is 15 lbs (6.8 kg).

BOB SMART:

accidently, i found this while reading about birds and the 'big year'
The wide publication in 1934 of the first modern field guide by Roger Tory Peterson truly revolutionized birding. However, in that era, most birders did not travel widely. The earliest known continent wide Big Year record was compiled by Guy Emerson, a traveling businessman, who timed his business trips to coincide with the best birding seasons for different areas in North America. His best year was in 1939 when he saw 497 species. In 1952, Emerson's record was broken by Bob Smart, who saw 510 species
