Where do garden gnomes come from?
The exact origin of our modern concept of the garden gnome is somewhat contested, but it has strong German roots. Garden statues (including lifelike animal sculptures and a well-known figure called gobbi—Italian for dwarf or hunchback) became popular throughout Europe during the Renaissance. German sculptors combined this trend with local fairytales to create Gartenzwerge (garden dwarfs) with the hallmark pointed hats, white beards, and big bellies that we expect in the gnomes that guard our gardens today. Several different German garden gnome manufacturers claim to be the first, so it's not clear who gets that honor. What is clear is that by the second half of the 19th century, garden gnomes were catching on across Europe. Slightly off topic, but some historians think the quick adoption of garden gnomes in Britain was partly due to the popularity of "garden hermits" at wealthy estates in the 1700s. Landowners would hire "hermits" to live in shacks on their properties, not bathe, and keep to themselves just for the aesthetic. I would, and I cannot stress this enough, highly recommend looking into them if you’re interested—pretty wild.

How do you block on defense?
When a cornerback picks a ball off the defensive players turn into offensive players and block for the guy running. You can block by hitting him hard! That doesn't always work. The most effective way is to grab the inside of whoever you're trying to block's shoulder pads and push them as hard as you can upward, he can't see, and it chokes him, works everytime.

If you will be unable to keep up with monthly payments for about three months is it likely that a lender will work something out with you?
This is a difficult situation... ing your question requires cosnideration of additional information such as: What State did you reside when you obtained the loan? Is the loan secured by a House, a Car, or Other? Generally speaking, you have a contractual obligation to repay your loan for the agreed upon terms. Call your creditor and explain the situation...Ask them directly if they have any options that you can consider. It depends on the lender. If your dealing with Capital One, forget it. They would rather repo the car and for you to get it back after paying all the payments, interest, tow bill, etc. That way, they make more money. Capital One will not work with you at all, no matter what the situation, and even with a promise to pay everything in a month when your disability check came in. Heartless people. There are over 217,000 web sites complaining about Capital One and their ruthless tactics.
What are gunite specs?
"Gunite",is a name used to typically designate a mixture of 1 part Portland Cement and 4 parts sand thoroughly mixed dry, passed through a Gunite Machine, and conveyed by air through a rubber gunite hose, mixed with water at the nozzle, and deposited by air pressure. The large amount of air pressure serves to mix and compact the mixture. The result is a wonderfully smooth, hard surface.

Does Straterra come in a patch or shot form?
Strattera made into a transdermal gel After much searching and family stress in trying to get Strattera into my 6 year old son who has a feeding disorder and out of control ADHD, I have found an alternative solution. He can't swallow a pill and eats only an extremely limited selection of foods. (Only two of his foods are possibilities for putting medication in.) Since Strattera is extremely bitter when opened, I pretty much couldn't disguise it enough to get it past him in any food. At the 25mg and 40mg dosages, I could sort of hide it, but we absolutely could not get 60mg into him in any food! It seemed that he was tolerating the medicine well and been having more good days at school so I was extremely dissapointed that our program was being derailed because we couldn't get the medication into him. The pharmacy we use said they couldn't make it a flavored liquid unless it was already in that form from the manufacturer. So I found a compounding pharmacy and discussed my problem with them. At first they said they could make it into a liquid and I asked could they make it into a patch because I didn't have much hope in any flavoring being able to disguise the bitter taste. The compounding pharmacy lab then said they had made it into a transdermal gel for some of their clients. I immediately felt a renewed since of hope! My son weighs almost 70 lbs and was on 60mg orally, but was initially stepped down to 40mg transdermally. He has been on it for almost a year and we are convinced we are seeing much improvement in his behavior. Our compounding pharmacy also makes the mood stabilizer Valproic Acid he takes in conjunction with Strattera into a suppository since we couldn't get that in him by oral routes either. So for you parents out there that need an alternative form of this medication, a transdermal gel might be the answer. This is a new frontier as far as the transdermal delivery of this particular medication as not much information is out there on it. I'm wondering if your niece is really taking Strattera because 1. it's relatively new on the market and may not have been prescribed a year ago. You can check this on the web pretty easily. 2. As far as I know it comes in pill form. It's a little pill so I can't understand why your niece would taste anything. You can ask a doctor or contact the Lilly folks for answers about a patch. I can't imagine there would be a shot for it because it has to be taken every day. If you google Strattera, the first site is E. Lilly's and they have an 800 number there. I hope all works out well for your family.

At first they said they could make it into a liquid and I asked could they make it into a patch because I didn't have much hope in any flavoring being able to disguise the bitter taste. The compounding pharmacy lab then said they had made it into a transdermal cream for some of their clients. I immediately felt a renewed since of hope! My son weighs almost 70 lbs and was on 60mg orally, but stepped down to 40mg transdermally. He has been on it for about 5 weeks and the jury is still out on whether it is helping. He has good days and bad days at school and daycare and I still feel we are still in the process of tweaking the dosage of the medication for the best benefit. The doctor said we would try two months of 40mg transdermally and then increase to 60mg if we didn't feel improvement was what it should be. So for you parents out there that need an alternative form of this medication, a transdermal cream might be the answer. This is a new frontier as far as the transdermal delivery of this particular medication as not much information is out there on it. Strattera does not currently come in a patch form, at least in the United States, in 2005. Hope this helps! Dr. B.

What were the classes of World War 2 soldiers and what weapons did they carry?
Do you mean US Army rankings? Private Private First class (1 stripe) Corporal (2 stripes) T/5 = Technician 5th grade (2 stripes) Sergeant (3 stripes) T/4 = Technician 4th grade (3 stripes) Staff Sergeant (4 stripes) T/3 Technician 3rd grade (4 stripes) Tech/Sergeant (5 stripes) Master Sergeant (6 stripes) 1/Sgt = First Sergeant (6 stripes with diamond insert) WOJG = Warrant officer junior grade CWO = Chief warrant officer then it goes on to officers 2nd Lieutenant 1st Lieutenant etc. there were no "classes" of soldiers. there were different assignments. a infantry company would have 186 riflemen carrying m1 garands. nco's carrying tommyguns or m1 carbines. riflemen carrying bar's (browning automatic rifles) or aircooled browning light machineguns. each company would have a weapons platoon attached to it. they would have watercooled heavy machineguns and 61mm mortars.plus they could have flamethrowers and bazookas from headquarters company assigned to them as needed.out in the field there was personal choice as well.some guys liked the boltaction m1903 springfield. some guys liked the m1 carbine instead of the garand or the tommygun if you could find one. as far as genades went i think the standard issue was 2 frags and a smoke genade but you could carry as many as you wished but they are heavy. i hope this ed your queston by the way officers carried m1 carbines or whatever their personal choice was in the field. colt .45's were always in short suppliy in the frontlines. By "Class" I assume your mean MOS, or Military Occupation Specialty. An American infantry squad had 12 men. Rifleman MOS would be issued an M1 Garand with 10 x8 round clips. a Grenadier early in the war would be issued an M1903 Springfield with a rifle grenade adapter, blanks for firing rifle grenades and sight that attached to the side of the rifle for long range launching along with some rifle grenades (number varied). The Automatic Rifleman was issued a M1918 Browning Automatic Rifle, (sometimes known as the BAR,pronounced as the letters) and 12 20 round magazines along with a 1911 pistol. Usually one member of the squad assisted in carrying the BAR ammo. The Sergeant was authorized to carry an SMG, though the M1 Garand or M1 carbine was just as likely, and they were issued a 1911 pistol. If you watch Band of Brothers (an excellent and accurate documentary), Sgt. "Bull" Randleman and Lt. Winters both carry the M1 Garand. In reality a lot of guys, especially paratroopers ended up carrying M1 carbines or submachineguns such as the M1 Thompson or the M3 Greasegun later in the war. Up until later 1942 a lot of soldiers were issued M1903 Springfield rifles as they could not manufacture M1 Garands fast enough to issue to the new troops. Support troops were typically issued M1 carbines and/or M1911 pistols. Paratroopers carried a higher proportion of SMGs and carbines, as they were light, compact, and could lay out a lot of lead in a hurry. Grenades and rifle grenades were an "as needed" issue treated just like ammunition, so there was no standard number to be issued, though two to three would be typical for hand grenades. Medics were issue a 1911 pistol along with anyone who operated a heavy weapon such as the Bazooka or the M1919A4 or M191A6 machinegun. Tank crews would have a mix of pistols, carbines, and occaisonally SMGs. Airmen would be issued a sidearm, which could be either a 1911 or more commonly a 1917 or "victory" model revolver. Hope this helps! Sven J. a few corrections for sven j there is no MOS for a bar man. he was a rifleman who got picked by his platoon sgt. medics were not issued weapons although some did carry them (see Geneva conv.) tank crews were issued tommyguns and later greaseguns not a mix.m1919 machineguns are not heavy weapons the m1917 watercooled machinegun is a "heavy weapon".grenades were issued as mr brown stated in his . colt .45's were supposed to be issued to weapons crews but seldom were. at least in the south pacific were i was at. we were given m1 carbines in place of pistols which we had to lug along with our 90 lb's of m1917 machinegun with tripod,watercan. what you read and what really happened are two different things.
