Need Ideas on Front Yard.?

Use decorative potting plants and plant some bright colored flowers! Sun Flowers are always nice! :)

1. Yard sale prices?

Put the prices. To get an idea of prices go to some sales

2. Cold Day for a yard sale?

Go ahead and be adventurous, have the yard sale! You could also sell/serve hot beverages too, coffee, tea, cocoa. This may even entice your perspective buyers to stick around longer and buy more!

3. how to attract deer into your yard?

dunno.....never had to try to attract them......always had a problem with them eating my vegetables and plants......... so i would say grow some veggies......

4. "as would a calm dog whose yard…”

The seal was staring [in the same way] as a calm dog would [stare] when she had just walked into its yard.You are expected to 'understand' the missing words, which have been left out to make the sentence shorter

5. graduation party in my back yard...?

Xbox? :D And if they are girls there then maybe spin the bottle or 7 minutes in heaven? The possibilitys are endless bro!

6. Where are the repair kits in Madhouse difficulty?

There are 2 Repair Kits total (as well as repairable items).The first is located in Yard just outside Main House to the right from entrance in bushes:The second is in Test Area behind mannequin head (to get this one it's required to have treasure photo from Main House - Master Bedroom Storage):

7. Gas in our own back yard?

We could drive all the oil producing nations into poverty. The US, Canada and Mexico combined have about 3 times as much oil as Saudi Arabia.

8. alternative to grass yard for kids to play?

It gets warm there so it's hard to go with a cool-season grass due to water requirements. I've heard alot of good things about a grass called: Seashore Paspalum. It is hitting the market as a turf-type, warm-season grass that thrives in arid conditions, with minimal maintenance. It's biggest benefit, however, is that it tolerates irrigation high in salt content (effluent/recycled water). Try Delta Bluegrass Company or West Coast Sod on the web

9. need ideas to improve my yard?

The simplest solution would be to just water it now and then, and mow it like grass. Eventually you will get something that resembles a normal grass. Its what my mom did with her 'side yard', and it looked pretty nice. Since its not your place I would not put much money into it, like renting a rototiller, buying plants or installing a sprinkler system

10. Why does a yard on a football field look smaller than an actual yard?

Put your heals on one line and lay down on you back. If you are 6 feet tall, you will touch the second line from your feet.

11. Selling Knitted or Crochet Items at Yard Sale?

Everyone else already provided you with some great answers. I just wanted to add that most anything to do with babies always sells really well. Baby blankets, baby outfits, booties, teddy bears, etc. Good luck with your little business! :)

12. How to improve 40 yard dash time?

Run faster

13. What should I do about my dog? Should I have him killed?

"I've agreed to start walking him every night at 10:00, but I am not always able to do this every night." This statement alone can explain the problem. A Jack is a very active dog well into their late teens and needs to be walked a minimum of 30-40 minutes twice daily. "We pick up his food and water at 9:00 PM now," He should have cool clean water 24/7 especially now with the warmer weather or you could have more serious problems. He should not have food available all the time. He should be on a twice daily schedule of a set amount of food. Do you have a fenced in yard? If so, consider putting in a dogie door, this allows him to go in and out. I have two Jacks ages 6 & 7 that have the option to go in and out onto five acres to hunt from sunup to sunset. They have 6' x 10' x 22" pool to go cool off in. They get a large popsicle every couple days. I take my champion racer to trials and they have a geriatric racing class for Jacks over 16 that are still racing. So yes have a vet check him out but do not sell your Jack short he has many years left with proper maintenance.

Cooks & Cocinas: Handy Couple Creates Contemporary Kitchen ...
Amped-up colors and open spaces are the work of a handy couple who created a kitchen to suit their contemporary tastes. Who's cooking: , a real estate appraiser who puts his building construction degree to work in do-it-yourself home projects. Wife Sandy, a community volunteer, pitches in on the remodeling ventures. In this kitchen: Since 2009, when the Rivettes completed a second remodel on the kitchen of the Northeast Side home they've lived in since the early 1990s. What's cooking: Doug enjoys combining recipes and experimenting with savory dishes while Sandy sticks to traditional fare. “I feel like I'm a country-type cook and he's the more gourmet cook,” Sandy says. The space: About 9 feet by 20 feet. “It feels bigger because there's no wall,” says Doug. In extending the counter and lengthening the kitchen, they eliminated the breakfast room in favor of a sitting area that overlooks the backyard swimming pool. On the surfaces: Canary yellow walls hit happy notes alongside the high-gloss red cabinets from Ikea. Sandy covered the previous orange walls in two coats with Behr paint that includes primer.Easy-care concrete counters require waxing and buffing about twice a year. Two couples helped the Rivettes build the forms and pour the concrete over a weekend.The sleek texture of glass tiles above the stove contrasts with the remaining backsplash of rough-hewn stacked stone tiles set vertically.Stainless drawer pulls reused from the previous kitchen go with the new stainless appliances and stainless sink. Why it works: The remodel gave Doug the gas stove he had always wanted, and Sandy got the range hood she wanted. “It started with the vent hood and didn't stop,” Sandy says of the major makeover.The open space fits the contemporary look the self-described wanna-be loft dwellers have created in the rest of their house.Moving the refrigerator to the opposite end of the kitchen made it less visible from the open family room and helped to create an efficient work triangle. “It's very user friendly and you don't have to walk a mile to get to things,” Doug says.The long bar is good not only for entertaining but also for crafting, Sandy notes. Bargain hunting: Buying appliances from sources such as and scratch and dent stores saved about 30 percent off regular retail, the Rivettes estimate. The one appliance bought in top condition — the dishwasher — got a door ding while Doug was installing it.The contemporary faucet they purchased online looks perfect, but because it doesn't have an aerator, it splashes, they say. Had they had the opportunity to try before buying, they likely would have kept looking. Plugged in: To provide power yet maintain the sleek contemporary aesthetic, Doug included a pop-up outlet in the counter in lieu of wall outlets. The three-outlet strip that plugs in out of sight under the counter lifts up for use, then pushes back down flush with the surface.Know of a good cook with a great kitchen E-mail suggestions for Cooks & Cocinas to Home & Garden Editor ,
Evening Buzz: Inside Jaycee Dugards Secret Backyard Prison
Cate VojdikAC360° WriterWe’re keeping a close eye on a fast-moving California wildfire that’s threatening thousands of homes and businesses outside Los Angeles—and has trapped five people who ignored evacuation orders. They’re stuck in a canyon surrounded by walls of flames. The blaze, which broke out last week, nearly doubled in size overnight. Two firefighters died battling it. We’ll have the latest tonight.We now have a much clearer picture of what the last 18 years have been like for Jaycee Dugard, the young woman who was found last week 18 years after her kidnapping. Investigators are combing the secret backyard compound where Dugard was allegedly forced to live–and where she apparently gave birth to the two daughters her captor fathered. We’ll show you what investigators found inside the squalid makeshift compound of tents and sheds.We’ll also hear from people who came into contact with Jaycee Dugard during her captivity. It turns out she wasn’t entirely isolated. She apparently helped Phillip Garrido run his printing business. Why didn’t outsiders suspect anything was wrong? What was their impression of the young woman? We’ll try to answer those questions tonight.We’ve also learned that investigators are looking into whether other young victims may have fallen prey to Garrido. A short time ago, authorities said that they found a bone fragment on a neighbor’s property that Garrido allegedly used. The fragment is being tested to determine if the bone is human. Meantime, the search for more evidence continues with cadaver dogs. We’ll cover all of these angles tonight.Plus, we’ll take a close look at the bold allegation that Britain brokered the release of the Pan Am Flight 103 bomber as part of a secret trade deal with Libya. The Times of London says it has a letter that provides proof. Tonight we’re keeping them honest.Swine flu is also in our mix tonight. Many college campuses are already reporting outbreaks of the H1N1 virus. The University of Kansas has hundreds of suspected cases. We’ll show you what’s being done to contain the spread on that campus. Chief Medical Correspondent Sanjay Gupta will also answer your questions.See you at 10 p.m. eastern.I wonder... will Jaycee and her children ever be able to live a normal life. Will they ever be able to cope in a real world? 18 years is a long time but I assume Jaycee remembers her life before this crazy person stole her life from her. But what about her children. This is their father and this is the only life they have ever had. Everyone needs to pray for these three girls.Can we see inside Garrido's house?Where were the girls born, and do they what is going on, and that father is a rapest?We pray for Jaycee and her girls and that they have a healthy wonderful life.I am a former Parole officer from Nevada. I supervised parolees under intensive supervision and residential confinement conditions with ankle monitors. I had sex offenders and murders on my caseload. The rule of thumb when you make a home visit to these types of parolee residence you go through the house and outling property in checking to see if there are any violations of the subject parole conditions each time you visit.. The parole agent should have done a better job years ago. I do not buy the comments that the parole agent could not see. It was simple he never looked. Our job on the streets is to look into these cases more throughly because of the criminal history of these serious offenders can never be discounted at any stage of the supervision.Iwith all this girl has been through and her two girls being this mans biological children. if he owns the house and property, wouldnt her daughters get ownership of everything soon as he is convicted so they can sell it to pay for some of whatever longterm treatment they most likely will need.The media is causing more damage to these children. I can't believe the media including Anderson Cooper is continuously saying that this girl was RAPED for 18 years. While media is cashing in on the sad sick situation of these poor victims, does anyone have enough moral fiber to say I will not victimize these people any further. RAPE is a violent word and action. Why don't these people consider the effect on these children to hear that their father continuously raped their mother. What about the effect on Jaycee to constantly hear that she was RAPED for 18 years.If this is what happened to Jaycee then maybe just maybe the media might want to stop RAPING her and her children and let them heal.Its a given that this man and his wife should be put away forever but should Jaycee and her children be persecuted, humiliated and sold out by the media in the name of Journalism and RATINGS. And please don't say it is in the good for these victims.Re: Ms. Molino(former business client of Garrido) –Did she think that Jaycee was a daughter of the Garridos?Also, does she know whether or not Jaycee called Garrido "Dad" ?Does she know how Jaycee's daughters referred to Garrido?It must be remembered that Jaycee was under complete control and learned to cope in complete fear. Once control is established a simple tapping much like clicker training in a dog can keep her under control. With 2 captors it is very easy to establish a good guy bad guyroutine. It's going to be tough to recover but she is tough or she would not have survived.How did the children feel to see their mother living in a tent and their father living in a house? Where did the children sleep?First of all, where are the birth certificates for the two little children fathered by the monster? where were they born? which hospital? And under what name? Blindness in our societies legal force is caused by nothing less then wisdom. Or should I relay a mesg. of blindness to there are too many to account for!!!This woman you interviewed appears to be misdirected. She does seem to be defending Garrido Or should I say deflecting the attention away from this atrocity committed by this man who, in my opinion, should receive NO mercy, No understanding, only the worst punishment allowed by the law. Water-boarding would not be good enough.Did she received Medical care while pregnant?I am completely disgusted that Anderson Cooper, whom I considered to be the last remaining legitimate newsman at CNN would allow, let alone interview, anyone who would possbile stand up for the sick, demeted, animal, Phillip Garrido. There is really only one place for Garrido and that is to spend eternity in hell!Anderson, I treat Traumatized patients at Rader Programs. This girl needs lots of help. Please help her get the right treatment. It could be equally traumatizing to force this girl back to her family. The girl needs somone safe. The girl may view all people unsafe. Dy Wolpert, APRN, NP, CNSRader ProgramsThis horrible story that is unfolding w/ jaycee is on belief! Why was this man released after just 11 years serve for the first kidnapping? He should of stay the full 50 years. If he would of then these poor girls wouldnt of suffered! I wish the best for jaycee and her family. I wish this man and women to get the max in prison.How could Jaycee give birth to the two girls in such living conditionswithout being exposed?How were they educated without the authorities consenting to homeschooling or did they attend public or private schools?I am sure that there is so much more to be revealed!Dear AC: Please don't forget about the Baskin children who were abducted and brainwashed by their own grandparents back in the late 1980's from Murfreesboro, Tn and were found in Feb. 2009. These children's mother's parents were suppose to return the kids to their parents, but instead ran off with them , telling tales saying that their own daugher and her minster husband were Satanic worshipers (not true). No one has talked about this. Have the children (now adults ) seen their parents? This was on Unsolved Mysteries along time ago long before there was much cable tv , before AC360. These 2 kids were brainwashed by their own grandparents.... Jan Nashville ,TNAnderson Cooper,I treat aduilts who have suffered from severe and pervasive traumas like incest, molestations, and torture. To understand how the little girl lives disavowing the painful circumstances one would have to understand the ability of a childs imagination. Jacyee may have went into her head hiding from the painful molestation/ rapes by creating an alternate selfstate called "alter personalities". Basically the "real little girl named Jaycee" hides as an 11 year old little girl inside her head and lives on the outside as the name the kidnapper gave her. The personality that now lives as a woman will disavow any problem living a normal liffe believing her reality to be what the kidnapper wants. Look up Dissociative Identity Disorder – may explain the perceptions of normalcy that everyone saw as she lived in the community.Respectfully,Dy Wolpert, APRN, NP, CNSit's hard to listen to this ordeal. your's is the first discussion i've heard. I don't get it. would we be better off not knowing about this?What role did the wife of Phillip Garrido play in all of this?An 11 year old girl was kidnapped, raped repeatedly year after year, gave birth to two children while still a minor and no one understands how the neighbours/authorities knew nothing or worse DID nothing. When 11 year old girls are forced into "marriage" raped and give birth to children while still minors WE are the neighbours who know about it and yet continue to do nothing. The only difference is the compounds in Utah (etc) are not derilict tents in a dirty backyard with one crazy beast to focus all our rage on. Do we continue to forget the other girls going thru the same thing as Jaycee Dugard did, RIGHT NOW in FLDS compounds – WE are the neighbours shown on tv, living our lives as other scared little girls cry silently.The parole officer who appeared is not revealing the complete truth to the public or he is very naive. I live behind a sex offender's home just like that girl. Each time the officer's visit it is a very brief in and out thing as if it is a bother. I have motioned to them several times as they were pulling out of the driveway and they just ignore me. I have directly contacted the sheriff's dept. and I recieve the same treatement. Reality is officer's are paid to keep their mouth's shut so they can do whatever. This sex offender is a multiple offender who served no time in jail, is an active alcoholic, hangs around this one little girl, is gone all night all the time as he pleases, and has at least a dozen firearms displayed in his home. What is wrong with the authorities that they allow this to continue. I do not buy the excuse they are too busy to protect children and who says it has to be a child? The system regarding sex offenders needs to be revamped more than our health care system. I watch the so called customers of this animal speak as if they did not know anything but I would be watching them as well. Notice they are all young men? I don't believe them.I can understand how someone can be kidnapped and could be hid out for years.My Daughter bought a house in Paradice, Ca. and food came up missing... from all of the familys sleeping bags to pots, pans, heaters and food galore.There was total histeria in the house hold. All kinds of things were stolen.Come to find out when she moved there was a guy cleaning out the basement in the house for the realstate office . There on the lawn were the gurls dirty sleeping bags , the new pots and pans I bought her for Christmas and a heater and also all kinds of canned goods and other food they had taken.There were at least three guys living there ... the kids saw them and zap they would be gone. The police were even called and there was two guys in their motor home (not knowing my Granddaughter stayed home from school that day) There is a feild behind the house a the police saw them there and did nothing. They were able to see what was going on and see in the bathroom and bedrooms. When the worker showed my daughter she called the police and they wouldn't even come to look at it.Some police are not there to help people and there are others that are worth their weight in gold.Places like this need to be chcked and the people that buy the place need to be checked. There are a lot of sex affenders around there.08-31-09 2009 1050 pm ETUnderstanding the magnitude of this life shattering event will never be ours as a society, but can we all learn from it? Blame and responsibility ripple outward and we have to consciously ask out loud can this never ever happen again? Can we help? Can we love enough to help healing take place? God alone sees all and knows all can we avail ourselves to devine wisdom and vision so that this world can be a better place or are we destined to slowly self destruct?Jaycee had children at age 14,as a minor, who signed the consent form when she gave birth? And when she gave birth the second time, that in itself, at that age, I find a little unusual and certainly would have sparked my interest??????First of all, I want to say "Alissa" (Jaycee) keep your head up! Jaycee was able to survive a tragic event that lasted 18 years of her life. The Garrido's have done this young woman a cruel injustice by stripping her of a healthy life. Anyone that is capable of doing such an inhumane act deserves the maximum penalty of the law. Then with the leud act Garrido had committed a few years earlier before the abduction of Jaycee should not unnoticed. It is obvious that something is not clicking correctly within this individual.maybe she was just waiting for the right time and place to to turn him in, and it sounds like to me she did it. she wanted a place to be safe and for her girls to be safe as well, God Bless herDid Jaycee have a medical person to deliver her childrenThat is something I hadn't thought of as a reason for her loyalty (if you will) to that monster which I agree totallyThe whole thing is a bizzare. This kind of terrible crime is not common in Nigeria. I really feel sorry for her father and mother and for her children. It is a heart broken story, but we should be glad she survived.I take exception to this Molina woman who seems to be defending this kidnapper and rapist. Just becaues he has a big house? And the young girls seem to be clean and well dressed?? These are not Antioch values. Why was this woman willing to overlook the strange behavior that was so obvious to the Berkeley police? There is a claim of racial discrimination against the Antioch Police Department by many new residents of this city. Is it possible that this woman – who called herself a VICTIM during your story – was too self absorbed in her own victimhood to empathize with three white girls who have been raped and victimized themselves? This is a problem in Antioch that you should be looking at.I think that it was wrong of the guy for doing this as well as the children for not alerting outside people. If it was me I would have ran no matter what. aren't I right?Jaycee and her children have a long road to recovery from the sick and twisted mind that controlled thier lives. I am quick to assume his molestations extended to the small children as well. May God stay close give these three the strength needed to grow.Two police officers were suspicious, but how did they come in contact with him to start with?How did he get caught, I don't believe he walked in and turned himself in unless, he knew they were on to him.Their is so much forcus on Phillip, his wife is as guilty, why not mention her on the news. How long has he been married to his wife?This story is so upsetting, I fear for every little girl, blond hair blue or brown eyes. I cannot sleep, angry angry. If some high official daughter is kidnapped then I bet the laws will changed. Sex offender's do not change. Their has to be stricker laws for these people.Thank youJaycee's story makes my stomach hurt every time I think about it. Every detail of this story is gut-wrenching and totally unbelievable if not for the pictures and reports.How many other women or children are out there like this poor woman and her children.....Please law enforcement and child protective your job and find them!! Neighbors, report suspicious behavior and then follow up to be sure your report has been acted upon!!This man is a dispicable piece of human trash. He should never see the light of day again. Anyone who interviews him is only helping his sick mind.I have a question. What kind of prenatal care did Jaycee receive and where did she deliver her babies? I really hope and pray that this young woman and her children will receive the love and support they need to heal from this horrifying injustice.Thank God for Anderson Cooper for keepin it real! Thanks for interviewing that last woman you had on there in a way that showed she wasn't defending that man and woman who abducted that young girl.Just wondering what the wife's roll was in this despicable situation. How long have they been married? How screwed up is she? As bad as her husband evidently.Good Grief, that woman is minimizing what that NUT done. I'm glad she re canted on defending him, because that was exactly what she was saying in the beginning.anderson cooper is hotwill we here from jaycee herself or the daughters in this horrific situation and what is the wife of this monster sayingWhy is no one asking about Garrido's wife and her part in all this?And even I know that Garrido probably used the girls as leverage against Jaycee and that's why he took them everywhere.I would like to know about the wife of this animal, what part did she play in this?This is an unbelievable story but what I want to know is who delivered the children when they were born ?At a town hall meeting on health care in Petaluma CA. Press should cover these more people are very upset. Both sides. Press needs to really see what is going on. This country is Very god, who is the woman on the live feed, i can't hear but I feel like someone needs to hold her or comfort her.Re: the people stuck in the fire: I hope they are ok, but I don't get why they didn't go. If the officials say "Get out of Dodge", then you get out of Dodge. Is it the possiblitly of looting? Heck, they could rob my house blind, as long as my family and I were safe. Did they think "oh, it won't touch us"? Mother Nature" decides how any kind of storm or fire will pan out, no one can predict it. It's a shame they didn't listen to the warning.Looking forward to the segments on Jaycee and her 18 years as captive of that man. I have been wondering what she was told that kept her from leaving. I'm sure some of the reason she stayed was her children – it would be harder to escape with them in tow and I doubt she would leave them.Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines to tell stories from many points of view, so you can make up your own mind about the news.

Architecture and history of CourtyardTwo examples of this flourishing architecture are to be highlighted. Both are limestone vernacular-based, as this stone is the most used across the islands.GirenIn the 5th millennium BC, neolithic farmers from Sicily brought a hut-building tradition with Asian origins. In the years 3800BC, this transformed into a spectacular type of architecture. As in Stonehenge, megalithic constructions were sacred. According to Anthony Bonanno, they had medical or cosmic significance for the people. It is the next evolution of those huge rocks constructions that gave the giren we can find nowadays though Malta and Gozo.The giren (singular: girna) were little constructions made for the mere needs of farmers and herdsmen. It has a double wall made of raw stone in order to protect the owner from hot summers, and its ceiling is usually dome-shaped. Though, we can find some square, rectangular or oval-shaped roofs (see Michel Rouvires schemes).The most beautiful and the largest circular giren are to be found in the stretch of fields and rocky ground between the Red Tower and Cirkewwa, while the largest square ones are to be found at Ix-Xaghra Il-Hamra, in the limits of Manikata.Cubic architectureJust as the previous giren type of construction, the cubic Maltese buildings find their roots in the islands history and tradition. Back between 800BC and AD 1200, Maltese islands were clearly part of the North African block, in opposition with what is stated nowadays with the European Union (2004). The Punic culture, which was settled since the control of Carthage in 400BC, has never been abandoned through Roman occupation (between 218 B.C. and A.D. 455 ) and found its way until the 9th century with the Aghlabid Muslims of Tunisia who will remain in Malta archipelago during three centuries. At this state, the architecture was still humble. It is the European wars that begun in the 15th century that will change the shape of the buildings according to their taste, imprinted with the Renaissance and Baroque styles.This is under those influences the primitive razzett - or farmhouse - began to take the shape we know nowadays and make them so famous among visitors and tourists.In Companion to Contemporary Architectural Thought, Ben Farmer, Dr Hentie J. Louw, Hentie Louw and Adrian Napper linked the shapes of farmhouses of Malta and Gozo with cultural habits and needs from this period:In about 1600, the introduction of the practice of living in closed settlements for security reasons in medieval Malta led to a reinterpretation of the basic cubic farmhouse layout. Community living, as opposed to extend family living, linked with the typically medieval Mediterranean tradition of walking to ones fields in the early morning and returning to the security of the village at sunset, let to the establishment of a typical village pattern of two distinct types. The earlier type consisted of a closely knit web of winding streets and alleys radiating from a central square, echoing the introverted central courtyard of the farmhouse building; the later type, most popular on Maltas sister island of Gozo, consisted of a sprawling pattern based on open-ended streets and alleys leading into the countryside, offering less security and introversion but infinitely more visual rapport with the terraced fields around the settlement.------London townhouses of CourtyardFrom 1747, Brettingham operated from London as well as Norwich. This period marks a turning point in his career, as he was now no longer designing country houses and farm buildings just for the local aristocrats and the Norfolk gentry, but for the greater aristocracy based in London.One of Brettingham's greatest solo commissions came when he was asked to design a town house for the 9th Duke of Norfolk in St. James's Square, London. Completed in 1756, the exterior of this mansion was similar to those of many of the great palazzi in Italian cities: bland and featureless, the piano nobile distinguishable only by its tall pedimented windows. This arrangement, devoid of pilasters and a pediment giving prominence to the central bays at roof height, was initially too severe for the English taste, even by the fashionable Palladian standards of the day. Early critics declared the design "insipid".However, the interior design of Norfolk House was to define the London town house for the next century. The floor plan was based on an adaptation of one of the secondary wings he had built at Holkham Hall. A circuit of reception rooms centred on a grand staircase, with the staircase hall replacing the Italian traditional inner courtyard or two-storey hall. This arrangement of salons allowed guests at large parties to circulate, having been received at the head of the staircase, without doubling back on arriving guests. The second advantage was that while each room had access to the next, it also had access to the central stairs, thus allowing only one or two rooms to be used at a time for smaller functions. Previously, guests in London houses had had to reach the principal salon through a long enfilade of minor reception rooms. In this square and compact way, Brettingham came close to recreating the layout of an original Palladian Villa. He transformed what Andrea Palladio had conceived as a country retreat into a London mansion appropriate for the lifestyle of the British aristocracy, with its reversal of the usual Italian domestic pattern of a large palazzo in town, and a smaller villa in the country. As happened so often in Brettingham's career, Robert Adam later developed this design concept further, and was credited with its success. However, Brettingham's plan for Norfolk House was to serve as the prototype for many London mansions over the next few decades.Brettingham's additional work in London included two more houses in St. James's Square: No. 5 for the 2nd Earl of Strafford and No. 13 for the 1st Lord Ravensworth. Lord Egremont, for whom Brettingham was working in the country at Petworth, gave Brettingham another opportunity to design a grandiose London mansionthe Egremont family's town house. Begun in 1759, this Palladian palace, known at the time as Egremont House, or more modestly as 94 Piccadilly, is one of the few great London town houses still standing. It later came to be known as Cambridge House and was the home of Lord Palmerston, and then of the Naval & Military Club; as of October 2007, it is in the process of conversion into a luxury hotel.------Offshoots of CourtyardBobovRabbi Chaim Halberstam (17931876) of SanzRabbi Mayer Noson Halberstam (18271855), son of Rabbi Chaim of SanzRabbi Shlomo Halberstam (18471905), first Bobover Rebbe, author of Ateres Shlomo, son of Rabbi Mayer NosonRabbi Ben Zion Halberstam (18741941), second Bobover Rebbe, author of Kedushas Tzion, son of Rabbi Shlomo HalberstamRabbi Shlomo Halberstam (19072000), third Bobover Rebbe, son of Rabbi Ben ZionRabbi Naftali Tzvi Halberstam (19312005) fourth Bobover Rebbe, son of Rabbi Shlomo HalberstamRabbi Ben Zion Aryeh Leibish Halberstam (born 1955), present Bobover Rebbe, son of Rabbi Shlomo (II)Rabbi Mordechai Dovid Unger (born 1954) present Bobov-45 Rebbe, son-in-law of Rabbi Naftali TzviSanz-GribovRabbi Chaim Halberstam of SanzRabbi Aaron Halberstam (18261903), Sanzer Rav; son of Rabbi ChaimRabbi Arye Leibish Halberstam (18521935), Sanzer Rav; son of Rabbi AaronRabbi Mordechai Zev Halberstam (18821942), Sanzer Rav; son of Rabbi Aryeh LeibishRabbi Boruch Halberstam (19031942), Gribover Rav; son of Rabbi Mordechai ZevRabbi Naftali Halberstam, Sanz-Gribover Rebbe in Boro Park, son of Rabbi BoruchThe following dynasties stem from Rabbi Boruch Halberstam, the Gorlitser Rov:Sanz-GorlitzGrand Rabbi Chaim Halberstam of SanzGrand Rabbi Boruch Halberstam of Gorlitz, son of Rabbi Chaim of SanzGrand Rabbi Elisha Halberstam (18601941) died in SiberiaGrand Rabbi Boruch Halberstam (died 1982) of Gorlitz-Bnei Brak, son-in-law of Rabbi Yisochor Shlomo Teichtal of Pishtian, author of Eim Habonim S'meichoSanz-KlausenburgGrand Rabbi Chaim Halberstam (17931876) of Sanz.Grand Rabbi Baruch Halberstam (18291906) of Gorlitz, son of Rabbi Chaim of SanzGrand Rabbi Tzvi Hirsh Halberstam (18511918), of Ridnik, son of Rabbi BaruchGrand Rabbi Yekusiel Yehudah Halberstam (19041994), the First Sanz Klausenberger Rebbe, son of Rabbi TzviGrand Rabbi Zvi Elimelech Halberstam, present Sanzer Rebbe in Kiryat Sanz, Netanya, Israel, son of Rabbi Yekusiel YehudahGrand Rabbi Shmuel Dovid Halberstam, present Sanz-Klausenberger Rebbe in Brooklyn, New York, USA, son of Rabbi Yekusiel YehudahSanz-ZhmigrodGrand Rabbi Chaim Halberstam of SanzGrand Rabbi Baruch Halberstam of Gorlitz, son of Rabbi Chaim of SanzGrand Rabbi Sinai Halberstam (18701941), the first Zhmigroder Rebbe, a son of Rabbi Boruch of Gorlitz; died in the Omsk forest, Siberia.Grand Rabbi Yaakov Halberstam (19021967), the Tshakover Rebbe, son-in-law of the Shotzer RebbeGrand Rabbi Meir Halberstam, Tshakover Rebbe of Bnei BrakGrand Rabbi Naftali Halberstam, Tshakover Rebbe of JerusalemRabbi Moshe Halberstam, (1932 2006) Rosh Yeshiva of Tshakove in Jerusalem, halachic authority and member of the Edah HaChareidis.Rabbi Chacham Tzvi Halberstam (19371972), author of Toldot ha-Maggid mi-Kozhnits.Rabbi Sinai Halberstam, rabbi of the Shikkun Gimel district of Bnei BrakGrand Rabbi Naftali Elimelech Halberstam, Leipniker Rebbe of Bnei BrakGrand Rabbi Aryeh Leibish Halberstam (19097 January 2007), the second Zhmigroder Rebbe, son-in-law of the Stretiner Rebbe, Grand Rabbi Yehuda Tsvi Brandwein.

How can I bring back Backyard Wrestling?Firstly you need to find some friends that would like to backyard wrestle with you. A group of about 10-15 is an ideal number. Then you need to build a base. It can either be just some random matresses or you can build a full on base. Just look on the internet on how to build one. Or, if you want to get really serious, you could build or buy a ring. Once youve got your base come up with names for your wrestlers (using WWE names is so amature) and then just practice your wrestling. Do not expect to be good at it straight away, it takes time to get any good. You should film all of your wrestling and put it onto the internet. Putting it on youtube, myspace, facebook etc etc is a great idea. Obviously you should be careful and dont hurt yourself and all that kind of crap. If theres anything else you want, feel free to email me. And for the record, backyard wrestling is still quite popular. Check out feds on Youtube like IYHWA, HVWA, LCWA, SCWS, ICWS and 2KW.

Question About a Dog in a Fenced Back Yard, and Biting a Child?
Question about a dog in a fenced back yard, and biting a child?Its a really hard one to answer, and I know this would be so frustrating for you. Is it worth getting in touch with local police or RSPCA or someone to that effect, and get a report in first. Would explaining what has happened and then request further info for futrure reference. Get it in written form if you can, if there is anything that leans your way in the argument hand it over to her next time she goes past and play her at her own game. What sort of mother is that anyway, that will not stop her child from coming near if there is a known potential risk.......stupid B!*(#.— — — — — —16 year old stepdaughter is pregnant?abortion or a divorce? what in the hell is wrong with you that's so selfish as if your wife had any part in knocking her up!? I can not even believe what I just read. She cried herself to sleep from being so upset yet your over here thinking about leaving her over something she had no say in? it's THE DAUGHTERS BODY, you have no say in what she does. you cannot make her kill her child. you chose to marry her family, for better or worse. and there's things in life you must deal with. it's not your child you do not have to raise it? And she's out of your house at 18 anyway. you may suggest abortion being as she's young but ultimately it's her choice. but what your saying and putting your wife thru is a real jackass move. She should divorce you. I would choose my children over a man, any day— — — — — —Do you find it offensive if a mother breastfeeds her child in public?Not at all. Should be more of it! People who are offended should grow up.— — — — — —What does a mom buy a daughter as a wedding present?I think if you want to buy her something it should be something she can give her child when they marry. I think you have already bought alot in what you are paying for so another gift should not be required— — — — — —If a Mother leaves her child in a car during hot weather and the child dies. What should be done?Does the mother do this? leave the child in a car unattended? If so, tell her that you will report this action to the police if she leaves the child in the car no matter if it is for a short time. I do not think these women or men are prosecuted because it was not intentional and it is figures that the parent is suffering already. it's a shame that in this society that people are so over-burdened with life and making a living that they actually forget that a child is in the car, It should be mandatory that a buzzer goes off if anyone is in the back seat and it would not reset until that person is removed.— — — — — —I volunteer at a daycare; One parent wants to abandon her child?Is this a joke? I really doubt the woman is like an orphan, there is probably family who would take the baby in first of all. This paper gives you NO rights to the baby, it is not anything legal or binding and you have no legal right to keep the child. You have to call the police and report her and turn the baby over to child protective services. They will search for appropriate relatives to care for the child. You can ask to be in touch with the social worker in charge of his case and if it turns out there is not any family willing to take him in then maybe you can apply to be his foster parent and possibly adopt him if the mother loses her rights. But you can not just keep him, its unethical and also completely illegal. What if there is some family out there worrying thinking she killed him or he was kidnapped?— — — — — —what in hell is wrong with this picture? why is this not going up for manslaughter? she forgot her child butwhat kind of idiot forgets their infant all day? no charges? i would have to call that extreme leniency. maybe she does not deserve the death penalty since she will certainly live out the rest of her life regretting her stupidity, but she should get something. manslaughter, negligent homicide-something. people are charged with crimes all the time for accidents that are way less preventable than this
Garden Swings: the Enchanting Element in Your Backyard
Traditional swings all hung from the trees, so channel the nostalgia by setting it up the old-fashion way! You want to pick a swing that is big enough for at least two people; company is always a good idea, especially on sunny days that are perfect for a backyard picnic!i have a ground hog in my backyard ...?good luck. groundhogs can be quite viscious so i would suggest either trapping it and relocating far away or killing it. have you ever heard a clicking sound coming from the ground hog? when you hear that it is standing its ground so shooing it away isnt going to work. you could try putting fruits and veggies on the other end of the yard or where you used to see the groundhog on a daily basis to keep it away from the house but i would recommend getting it away from there altogether. if i remember correctly groundhogs dont eat meat and that is why i suggested fruits and veggies. you could also kill it and cook it a thought because i know plenty of people who love groundhog meat saying it is tender. probably be best to either kill or relocate it as they can be very nasty if they feel threatened and NEVER should your kids be allowed to appoach itUnwanted Birds in my Backyard?Birds do not bother dogs, and unless you have a LARGE group of birds sitting in the ONE spot the bush hangs over your yard, you would not even notice the bird poop. Uh, are you sure the DOG FOOD being outside is not what is attracting the birds to your yard rather than a rose bush??? Dog food outdoors can also attract wildlife to your yard that will bother your dogs a lot more then birds!!HELP?! My backyard is flooding?Best thing to do is go rent a pump. You can use a piece of 2" pvc flex pipe, I use it to empty my pool in the fallMy dogs are bored in the backyard...? If you are really worried about your dogs try to figure out how to make more time to walk them, play with them or bring them in the house to hang out with you. Get up an hour earlier and walk them, do not spend so much time on the computer, take your cell phone with you on walks for phone calls, just a few suggestions. There are days when I do not have enough hours in the day to get everything done but I always somehow manage to walk my dogs and play with them. Good luckcan I place a manufactured home in my backyard???you need to go to county courthouse and ask that questionAm I considered a backyard breeder?If U only produce this one litter -- then no -- I would not consider U a BYB. However the ultrasound is over the top and not necessary. Did not even do this when I was pregnant with my "people pups". Your vet can palpitate if U want to know how many pups there will be. As for the I.D. collars those are not only unnecessary - they are dangerous, as the pups will chew them off. There is a better way to mark them. First when they are born write down each sex and the markings. That will usually help U identify most individual puppies. Then as they get older U can mark them by trimming a small amount of hair off the inside of a hind leg and record which pup has fur clipped on which leg. One pup can have one notch, another pup two notches, and so forth. This is the way zoos mark individuals in litters where the offspring all look alike in a litter. It is even easier with domestic dogs cuz U will have different markings usually. I used to do this with German Shepperd puppies. U can also use this method to mark which pups have been sold and write down the identity in that pups health records. Good luck.backyard wedding ideas, not redneck, but not something that will cost an arm?I am having a small reception outside. I am just having fruit, vegetable, and sandwich trays with chips and dip. And of course cake. It's very cheap!

Daylilies will also take the abuse from the dogs and are hard to kill1. how to remove motor oil from wrought iron gate (unpainted gate)?idk. call lowes!2. What invention did the Chinese make that helped in the creations of steel-making?Chinese metallurgists discovered how to puddle molten pig iron, stirring it in the open air until it lost its carbon and became wrought iron. (In Chinese, the process was called chao, literally, stir frying.) By the 1st century BC, Chinese metallurgists had found that wrought iron and cast iron could be melted together to yield an alloy of intermediate carbon content, that is, steel. ...The Chinese during the ancient Han Dynasty were also the first to apply hydraulic power (ie. a waterwheel) in working the inflatable bellows of the blast furnace3. I'm Decorating my small apartment and would like a Broadway Theme?The adorning topic truly relies upon on your options. you may evaluate wrought iron decor. homestead adorning with wrought iron brings a effective look to a room and it is going with maximum furniture, and so on4.

Houndstooth doens't in large condition with the foral types. you have a u . s . stylish subject very virtually. hit upon a good settee, usher in pillows with categories, yet with the colors of the different products. locate curtain panels that have a mushy plaid or stripe in the crimson possibly. no longer a ambitious development yet a subdued color. OR, %. up on the mexican subject in the pottery. Does it have the tericotta colors? in case you have the appropriate color of crimson on your different products you will hit upon a color of tericotta,(clay colors that flatter crimson), possibly paint the wall in the back of the entertainment center a heat color that compliments the crimson tones in furnishings and play up the mexican pottery, possibly a leather-based settee in a mushy heat color or mushy cream. stay faraway from greater print for the hot settee. in case you have a crimson that seems very virtually black, you may desire to usher in textures by skill of applying wrought iron. it works which comprise your rustic entertainment center and the pottery. shop the curtains trouble-free, use wrought iron hardware. no longer hassle-free to try this with out seeing your area. desire this helps.5. we are doing a kitchen remodel --our kitchen gets very warm in the afternoon and we want to keep our fan over?Go to menards, they have reasonably priced traditional ceiling light fans in oil rubbed bronze, antique, wrought iron... For over a table it's best to get a ceiling hugger.6. cockatiel breeders/Wrought iron cages?You might want to try Pet finder. Your local animal shelter usually has cockatiels for adoption. Check with them often. Your local pet stores has a variety of bird cages from 50$ and up. This way you get to see what you are buying. No surprises.7. what should i ask him?Is the fence being installed around the pool or around the property line? Ask: Who will be responsible for pulling permits? What type of warranty does he give on his work? Will the fence follow CPSC standards? (fence a minimum of 4 feet high and "eliminating handholds and footholds and minimizing the size of openings in" the fence design.) Will the gate have a self-latching mechanism on the pool side of the fence. (This ensures the latch can only be released by someone tall enough to reach over the top of the gate and not from someone outside of the pool area.) What will the fence be made of? Wrought iron will rust and will require maintenance. A powder coated galvanized steel is another option that is strong and durable. Also, some people install aluminum which is made to look like wrought iron. It is a lot less expensive but may not be as sturdy as the wrought iron or steel.

Introduction to Courtyard - Docibilis II of Gaeta of Courtyard
Docibilis II of Gaeta of CourtyardDocibilis II (Italian: Docibile) (c. 880 c. 954) was the ruler of Gaeta, in one capacity or another, from 906 until his death. He was the son of the hypatus John I, who made him co-ruler in 906 or thereabouts.Docibilis took part in the Battle of Garigliano in 915. In 930, he began adding the title of duke, or dux, to his title of hypatus, or ypatus. This was meant to signify a new status or rank, though the Byzantine Empire, to which he was always legally a vassal, always recognised him merely as archon, . His father died in 933 or 934, and he subsequently became sole ruler. At that juncture, he began asserting his independence from the Byzantines. He abandoned the imperial dating by which charters were dated by the year of the emperor's reign and allied with Theobald I of Spoleto against the Greeks.Likewise, his wife Orania took the title of duchess, ducissa, alongside ypatissa, and he associated his son, John II, with him in the dukedom. In 939 he removed the style hypatus and began calling himself consul. He married his daughter Maria to the prince of Capua, to strengthen his ties to the rest of the local Italian nobility. Atenulf Megalu, the gastald of Aquino, fled to Docibilis' protection, but none of this bettered his relations with the Lombard princes: he was attacked by Landulf I of Benevento and lost some territory. Later on, he even imprisoned the abbot of Monte Cassino and was not above allying with the Saracens against which he had once fought. He was succeeded by his son John and later Gregory, and he gave Fondi to his son Marinus, with the title of dux, effectively splitting the duchy of Gaeta in two parts. His other son Leo received the Church of San Erasmo at Formia from John II and Docibilis left many daughters besides Maria: Anna, Gemma, Drosu, and Megalu.He died after 954 and before 957. In his last will (954) his palace in Gaeta, now in ruins, was described as having "rooms, corridors, baths, aviaries, kitchens and courtyards down to the sea."------Cultural landscape of CourtyardMostly the people of this village were Jatt Sikh mixed with Hindu and only one Muslim Family belonging to Kumhar (Ghumar) was remained in the village a. Other people also used to live like permanent part of the village like Luhar (Blacksmith), Tarkhan, Jhior, Chimba (Weaver), Darji (Tailor), Chamar (Ramdasia) and Majhbi. A Tribal group of Chajjgarhe' living in Jhugies (huts) also living and following Muslim religion. Some of them used to carry on the work called Nakal (Naklan) and singing as their part-time profession to entertain the people on occasions of Marriages and other festivals in the other village and in Halwara village itself. There were seven Maseet or maszid (Mosques) and three Takia (Smoking place) where the Muslim people used to smoke Hukka and gossip in the village. One mosque in the centre of the village was for women. Out of seven mosques 6 are still standing and one mosque is untraceable. Takia place was occupied by a Sikh family named Dalip Singh also known as Daulatpuria but now the same is demolished and a new house is constructed.Majority of the population was Muslim (Manjh Rajpoot. Muslim women were not allowed to move out of the house ( Parda-nashi). No women was married outside the village but women from outside village were accepted for marriage (nikah). People were converted Muslim from Hindu's during the regime of Badshah Aurangjeb. They were called Manjh Rajput. Though they accepted Muslim religion but they never forget their Hindu's rituals. At the time of marriage (Nikah), it was compulsory to perform 'Phere' also. Otherwise marriage ceremony was not consider completed. Beef for them was sin and they never sacrificed cow on any occasions. They used to celebrate marriage functions 10 to 15 days. They were fond of music, Kawwali and Gazelles were continuously recited for many days during marriage ceremony.The place is a remarkable example of cultural harmony and intermingling. A large number of people from other states belonging to families of Air Force men and women have settled here. The area has are Sikh Gurudwaras, a Hindu temple, a Christian church, and the tomb of a Muslim peer, all of which are equally revered by the residents.------Significance of CourtyardThe site is considered to be the most sacred place in Lahore. The shrine has emerged a major economic, political, and social centre in Lahore, and is one of the only places in Lahore where the extremely rich and extremely poor share space together.It is widely believed among devotees that the saint interred at the shrine is the supreme authority over all Sufi saints in the Indian subcontinent, and that no new Sufi saint could immigrate to the subcontinent without obtaining permission from the spirit of Hujwiri.Following the establishment of a shrine dedicated to Hujwiri, his tomb was visited by Muslims and non-Muslims in search of his blessings. Illustrious figures such as Baba Farid, Moinuddin Chishti, Nizamuddin Auliya, Dara Shikoh, and Allama Iqbal all paid obeisance to the shrine, and pledged allegiance to Hujwiri. Former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif was a frequent visitor to the shrine.Hujwiri's teachings were critical of practices associated with South Asian Islam, such as the use of drugs, and dancing. He also taught that Sufi saints were themselves still obliged to the demands of Islam, and so is revered by reformist Muslims who are critical of Sufi practice, as well as traditionalist Muslims who revere Sufi shrines.Qawwali performances are regularly held at the shrine. On special occasions, the shrine is decorated with lights, dinner is prepared for thousands of visitors, who also partake in dance while musicians play Sufi music for hours. At the boundary of the shrine, Muslim faithfuls recite the Qur'an, and pay tributes to the Prophet Muhammad.Social servicesThe shrine provides a wide array of social services which have made it a popular hub for impoverished residents. In a custom that is 1,000 years old, hundreds of visitors per day are offered free food at the shrine. Patrons facing personal difficulties frequently donate money or labour to the shrine's free-kitchen fund, in line with Islam's emphasis on feeding the poor. The shrine also provides for students' education in nearby schools, and helps fund local hospitals as part of its social mission.------Feature of CourtyardEmo the Musical premiered on 12 August 2016 at the Melbourne International Film Festival.

On his first day at his new school the dilapidated Seymour High - he meets Trinity, a beautiful (but totally naive) Catholic girl who is desperate to convert him to Jesus. But joining the Catholic Christians is the last thing on Ethan's mind. What he really wants is to join the school alternative rock band, Worst Day Ever and to be part of the Emo clique, led by the enigmatic and dangerous Bradley. After a successful audition, Ethan is welcomed into the Emo world and embraces his image complete with black eyeliner and a violently possessive girlfriend, Roz. But Ethan can't stop thinking about Trinity, who is herself stuck in a restrictive world of dogma and denial. With the upcoming rock competition bringing tensions in the school at an all-time high, and with the burgeoning turf war between the Christians and the Emos set to explode at any moment, Ethan is torn between factions and forced to confront the harebrained actions of his friends and question who he has become.CastBenson Jack Anthony as EthanJordan Hare as TrinityRahart Adams as Bradley, leader of the Emo cliqueJon Prasida as Isaac, leader of the Christian cliqueLucy Barrett as RozCraig Hyde-Smith as PeterBen Bennett as JayGeraldine Viswanathan as JamaliKevin Clayette as JoshBridie Carter as Mrs DoyleNatasha Herbert as SusanDylan Lewis as Doug SkeletonAdam Zwar as Principal StephensHeidi Arena as Sister Kathleen------Palazzo Massimo alle Colonne of CourtyardThe Palazzo Massimo alle Colonne is a Renaissance palace in Rome, Italy. The palace was designed by Baldassarre Peruzzi in 1532-1536 on a site of three contiguous palaces owned by the old Roman Massimo family and built after arson destroyed the earlier structures during the Sack of Rome (1527). In addition the curved facade was dictated by foundations built upon the stands for the stadium (odeon) of the emperor Domitian. It fronts the now-busy Corso Vittorio Emanuele II, a few hundred yards from the front of the church of Sant'Andrea della Valle.The entrance is characterized by a central portico with six Doric columns, paired and single. Inside there are two courtyards, of which the first one has a portico with Doric columns as a basement for a rich loggia, which is also made of Doric columns. The column decorations gave the name to the palace, alle Colonne. The facade is renowned as one of the most masterful of its time, combining both elegance with stern rustication. The recessed entrance portico differs from typical palazzo models such as exemplified by the Florentine Palazzo Medici. In addition, there is a variation of size of windows for different levels, and the decorative frames of the windows of the third floor. Unlike the Palazzo Medici, there is no academic adherence to superimposition of orders, depending on the floor. On the opposite facade of this palace, opening onto the Piazzetta dei Massimo, the palace connects with the frescoed facade of the conjoined annex, the Palazzetto Massimi (or Palazzetto Istoriato). For many centuries, this used to be the central post office of Rome, a Massimo family perquisite. To the left of the palace is the Palazzo di Pirro, built by a pupil of Antonio da Sangallo.The interior ceilings and vestibules are elaborately ornamented with rosettes and coffered roofs. The entrance ceiling is decorated with a fresco by Daniele da Volterra, who represented scenes from the Life of Fabio Massimo, the supposed Roman founder of the Massimo family.The chapel on the second floor was a room where the 14-year-old Paolo Massimo, son of Fabrizio Massimo, was recalled briefly to life by Saint Philip Neri on March 16, 1583. The interior of the palace is open to the public annually only on that day. Other notable events in the palace of the 16th century including various intrafamilial murders.
Introduction to Courtyard: Spanish Testament of Courtyard
Spanish Testament of CourtyardSpanish Testament is a 1937 book by Arthur Koestler, describing his experiences during the Spanish Civil War. Part II of the book was subsequently published on its own, with minor modifications, under the title Dialogue with Death (see below). Koestler made three trips to Spain during the civil war; the third time he was captured, sentenced to death and imprisoned by the Nationalist forces of General Franco. Koestler was at that time working on behalf of the Comintern and as an agent of the Loyalist Government's official news agency, using for cover accreditation to the British daily News Chronicle.The book was published in London by Victor Gollancz Ltd. The 'Contents' of the book is in two parts: Part I describes the context in which he was captured, divided into IX chapters, each with its own title. Part II, titled Dialogue with Death, describes Koestler's prison experiences under sentence of death. This part was written in the late autumn of 1937 immediately after his release from prison, when the events were still vivid.In the second volume of his autobiography The Invisible Writing, written by Koestler fifteen years later, the following footnote appears:In all foreign editions, including the American, Dialogue with Death appeared as a self-contained book. In the original English edition, however (Gollancz and Left Book Club, 1937), it formed the second part of Spanish Testament the first part of which consisted of the earlier propaganda book on Spain that I had written for Muenzenberg. Spanish Testament is (and shall remain) out of print; Dialogue with Death has been reissued in England under that title, in the form in which it was originally written.------Amenemhat (chief of Teh-khet) of CourtyardAmenemhat was a Nubian official under Hatshepsut and Thutmosis III. He was chief of Teh-khet and was therefore a governor ruling a region in Lower Nubia for the Egyptian state. In the New Kingdom, Egyptian kings had conquered Lower Nubia. To secure control over the new region they appointed people of the local elite as governors. Teh-khet was a Nubian region that covered about Debeira and Serra. The local governors here formed a family, while the governor proper hold the title chief of Teh-khet.Amenemhat is known from several monuments. A statue found at Buhen indicates, that he started his career as simple scribe under king Thutmosis I before he followed his brother in office. He was appointed in about the reign of Hatshepsut and Thutmosis III. Amenemhat was the son of the chief of Teh-khet Ruiu, while his brother Djehutyhotep followed Ruiu in office and was followed then by Amenemhat himself.Amenemhat's tomb was discovered on the West Bank of the Nile in the Debeira district. The tomb's superstructure included a mud brick built structure with a pyramid in the middle. Within the pyramid there was an offering chapel. In front of the pyramid was a courtyard. In the underground burial chambers were found different objects, including coffins and canopic jars. The latter bear the name Paitsy, this is the second name of Djehutyhotep; the brother of Amenememhat. Djehutyhotep might have been buried here.------Personal life and education of CourtyardDe Henriquez was born in Trieste to a father descended from Spanish noblemen of the Habsburg court in Vienna; her mother was of Turkish and Russian origin. She had one older brother, Diego, who went on to found the War Museum in Trieste. De Henriquez studied at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Venezia under Arturo Martini.As a teenager she was a member of the Fascist Youth Movement, but during the Second World War she worked with the partisan movement and helped escort Jewish refugees to safety. This was due in part to her father's denunciation in 1935 as an anti-Fascist, for refusing to Italianise his surname.In 1949, she left Italy for England, and became a British citizen in 1953; she would live there for much of the rest of her life. However, she also returned often to her native Italy. In 1966, she purchased the ruinous hamlet of Peralta in Tuscany, and spent much time on its restoration as an artists' colony.De Henriquez was born intersex with ambiguous genitalia, and declared herself "proud to be hermaphrodite" and "two people inside one body". She had a brief relationship with German painter Kurt Kramer in the 1940s, but her primary romantic and sexual relationships were with women. De Henriquez affected an offbeat style of dress; in his diaries, Christopher Isherwood described her as appearing "dressed like a male peasant in Cavalleria Rusticana and announcing that she had a love for life."------Plot of CourtyardThe plot is based against a rural backdrop. Dayaram (Badal Das), an old man, in the hope to see a family flowering, had allowed Nilakanta (Saurav Hazarika) to settle down. Kalidas (Adil Hussain), a friend of Nilakanta, who had fallen for Ambika (Jaya Seal Ghosh) had informed Nilakanta that cupid had indeed struck. When Nilakanta informs Kalidas that he will soon be marrying Ambika, the gentleman in Kalidas ensures that he does not complicate matters and moves away on business.But after her husband passes away, Ambika, struggles for survival and brings up her children and an infant doing the odd menial work in the village. Once, on her way back home, she captures timid four pigeons which make Ambika shed some of her timidity. Kalidas returns after long years to frequently spend long hours in Dayaram's courtyard. Dayaram dreams that Ambika hunger ends soon. He wants to play cupid this time. Ambika too is aware of Dayaram's intentions. One day when Kalidas asks "Were you aware that my mother had gone over to your place to scout for you as my bride?" Ambika is dumb struck. Dayaram weaves Ambika baskets to take the pigeons to the market. He ensures Kalidas accompanies her. Dusk falls. The pigeons remain unsold. Ambika does not disagree to Kalidas's proposal to buy the pigeons for a meal in her household. The flickers of the market lamps light up her face.------Chteau de Bressuire of CourtyardThe Chteau de Bressuire is a ruined castle in the town of Bressuire in the Deux-Svres dpartement of France.The site has been inhabited continuously since the Celtic epoch. The castle was built on the site of an oppidum of the Gauls and was first documented in 1029, in a charter at Saint-Cyprien de Poitiers. It belonged to the Beaumont-Bressuire family until the start of the 16th century.The castle is a fine example of medieval military architecture. In 1190, the castle consisted of an enceinte almost 700 metres around, with 38 towers circling the first fortress, itself defended by eight towers.The visible remains date essentially from the end of the 12th and the start of the 13th century. The fortress included three enceintes, of which the outermost has now disappeared. The castle was broken up during the first half of the 18th century.In 1441, Jacques de Beaumont became Seigneur de Bressuire. He converted the castle into a beautiful residence. From this time date the large building closing off the courtyard, that has mullion windows, splendid granite chimneys in the private rooms and an elegant gallery, all intended to show the refinement of the owner. The castle subsequently belonged to a number of families but its maintenance was ignored. In 1876, the building partly collapsed. The Bernard family bought the castle the same year. In 1880, a neo-Gothic chteau was built in the castle court, set back in relation to the former building.The castle was acquired by the commune in 1975. It has been listed since 1996 as a monument historique by the French Ministry of Culture.------Aklo of CourtyardAklo is the name of a fictional language that has been used by many authors from its first reference in 1899. The language is said to have mystical powers.Aklo was first mentioned by Arthur Machen in his 1899 story "The White People". Aklo was mentioned but not described in detail by Machen, being noted in passing by the story's narrator as part of a secretive game or ritual.H. P. Lovecraft admired the Machen story, and used Aklo in his Cthulhu Mythos stories "The Dunwich Horror" and "The Haunter of the Dark". The authors who have used Aklo have played into the fiction that the language has magical powers, and so have not included much detail to prevent "some careless reader from incanting a spell capable of calling forth evil".In The Illuminatus! Trilogy by Robert Shea and Robert Anton Wilson, Aklo appears as a language used in Black Masses and by the Illuminati.Alan Moore later used Aklo in his Lovecraft tribute short story and 2003 comic The Courtyard, in his 2010 comic Neonomicon and again in Providence. In his adaptation, Aklo is not just an alien language, but a key that opens doors inside the human mind which is "connected to Moore's general view on actual magic and the role of words in modifying a human's perception of reality."The Pathfinder RPG, published by Paizo, uses Aklo as the language of several subterranean, otherworldly, or otherwise Lovecraftian species in the game's universe, such as aboleths, gibbering mouthers, and shoggoths.non-primary source needed------Initial building of CourtyardHaydarpaa High School housed in a monumental historic building from its establishment in 1934 until July 1984. The building was commissioned by Ottoman Sultan Abdul Hamid II (reigned 18761909) for use as the "Imperial Medicine School" (Ottoman Turkish: Mekteb-i Tbbiye-i ahane). It was designed by the French-Ottoman architect Alexander Vallaury (18501921) and the Italian architect Raimondo Tommaso D'Aronco (18571932). The construction began on February 11, 1895 and was completed in 1900. It was situated in the area between the 1828-built Selimiye Barracks and the Haydarpaa Military Hospital. The ceremonial opening took place on the birthday of the sultan on 15 Sha'ban AH 1321 (November 6, 1903).The building, built on a 80,000m2 (860,000sqft) land, has a rectangular plan. It has a construction area of 24,000m2 (260,000sqft) with a courtyard of 80m 140m (260ft 460ft) inside. It is a two-story building with a basement. Aisles run on two floors of the building around the courtyard, and classrooms were situated at the outer sections in the south, west and north wings. The walls of the building were covered with granite plates brought from quarries in Hereke and Bilecik. Hydraulic lime, imported from Marseille, France, was used as lime mortar.After merging of the civilian and military medicine education, the building became Haydarpaa Faculty of Medicine in 1909. The Faculty of Medicine moved to the European part of Istanbul after the 1933 University Reform. The building was handed over to the Ministry of National Education. It served half a century as Haydarpaa High School between 1934 and 1984. It became then Marmara University's Faculty of Medicine Haydarpaa Campus.
