Can I go Canoing while pregnant?

If a woman (not you) is normally healthy and has no complications and wears a life jacket and confines her trips to calm waters, YES; she can go canoeing;

BUT why have YOU not asked your DOCTOR this question? That would be the more sensible approach. I suggest that you obtain your doctor's opinion before thinking about it 1 more minute.

Some women are fit enough to ski, swim, kayak, canoe, fly, dive and waterski while pregnant. Only YOU and your DOCTOR can intelligently answer that question.

Where can you find info on the Greenduck Company that sold varnish in the late 1800s or early 1900s?

The Greenduck Co. was based in Chicago. I was unaware they made varnish, but do know they made Fraternity Medals and such in the early 1900's

ANSWER-

THE GREEN DUCK METAL STAMPING CO. WAS LOCATED AT 1520 WEST MONTANA,CHICIGO ILLINOIS.I BELIEVE THAT IT WAS IN BUSINESS FROM 1906 UNTIL THE 1960`S OR EARLY 70`S.THEY MADE ELECTION PINS ALSO SPOONS FOR THE CENTURY OF PROGRESS, PROBABLY OTHER ITEMS ALSO,BUT THEY WERE A METAL STAMPING COMPANY SO I DO NOT BELIEVE THAT THEY MADE VARNISH.

The company was also involved in the manufacture of some the early Illinois vehicle tags and license plates.

GREEN DUCK RE-LOCATED FROM CHICAGO TO HERNANDO, MISSISSIPPI IN 1962 AND FINALLY CLOSED IN 2004. THEY MADE ELECTION BUTTONS, THE METAL CRICKETS (USED AT D-DAY FOR SIGNALING AND ALSO USED FOR DOLPHIN TRAINING AT SEA WORLD), & MARDI GRAS DUBLOONS. IN 1983, THEY BEGAN MAKING SLOT TOKENS FOR US CASINOS. IN 1996, GREEN DUCK WAS SOLD TO A BIRMINGHAM, ENGLAND COMPANY AND SLOWLY WENT DOWN HILL. I WORKED THERE FROM 1982 UNTIL 1993 AND CAME AWAY WITH AN AMAZING COLLECTION OF ITEMS THEY MADE DURING THE LONG HISTORY.

I found a radiator plate for a 1914 willy-overland co. model 79 car and had The GreenDuck co. stamped on the back so they made these as well.....hope this helps!!

I have a watch fob with Abraham Lincoln on the face and Springfield Il. May 18, 1927 on the reverse. In very small print on front and back it is stamped The Greenduck co. Any idea if this has any collector value?

How do you store a kayak for the winter?

turn upside down on two workhorses in your back yard

Added: It is better to store it indoors, in a garage or shed if you have room. If it must be stored outside, it should be sheltered to protect it from UV. However, putting a tarp directly on top allows moisture to build up.

What is the Volume of a Coleman canoe?

It depends on the length of the canoe, and Pelican made different lengths for Coleman. The listed capacity can help you make a rough guess as the capacity stated is equal to the water displaced by the canoe when it is fulled with the stated amount of weight. But, the stated capacity SHOULD allow for six inches of freeboard. (In other words, if the capacity is 700 lbs., and you fill the canoe with 700 lbs.of water, you should still be able to pour in six more inches.)

What are the rules for lbw in cricket?

This rule is fairly complex, a basic overview of the rule is provided below: - The ball hits the batsman in front of the stumps before hitting his/her bat and in the opinion of the umpire, if it had not been blocked by the batsman's body, would have gone on to hit the batsman's stumps. - In practice there are a number of subtleties to the rule, for example: * If the ball hits the batsman outside the line of the off stump and the batsman was playing a genuine shot (but missed the ball), then he cannot be given out.

* If the ball pitches outside the line of the leg stump, the batsman can never be given out, even if he does not play a shot. More information about cricket can be found here: http://www.answers.com/topic/cricket-4

What is a good way to catch a chicken and her babies to pen them up?

One view

Use a large object (blanket, piece of plywood) and "herd" them into a corner. Then slowly and calmly remove them to where you want them. This is usually a 2 or 3 person job.

Another view

If a hen is not tame, it is important to not influence the chicks view of people. If they see their mother freaking out, they will, too. The best thing to do is wait till she is settled at night, and use a box so that you can transport then simultaneously. Reach under her and one by one put her chicks in the box. Make sure she can see them if she doesn't trust you with her babies. Put her in last and move them into the pen.

Another view

You could wait till nightfall and they will go in by themselves or if it's during the day, get some chicken feed and try coaxing them in.

Another view

From now on, you could build a pen where the hen can be kept in, make it easily movable. Light weight something you can move yet the wing cant blow over. Allow the chicks to roam away from momma, but if they get scared they will go back to her. The pen then can be moved daily to new grass so they can still be free raning on new land. Helps fertilize the yard as well.

Can you kayak from Florida to the Bahamas?

That trip would be very strenuous and probably not possible for an experienced kayaker in one day. Most likely it has been done, though. The distance from the Florida mainland (near West Palm Beach) to the closest part of the islands is about 70 miles. That is a huge distance.
