Thanks Mac,

I had not seen those before.

You in the area in July 1945, hope you don't have the lung problem.

A close friend of mine in the USAF back when they started testing the 'bomb' again in Nevada, volunteered to be one of the 100's to 'observe' the explosions from a certain distance in the 1951 tests. When he returned to our base a few months later, he described the explosions and everything that happened. I lost track of him, read a few years ago, that practically all those that participated in those test came down with cancer/lung problems attributed to the bomb.

I remember seeing a sequence like yours

in an encyclopedia we had, only this one was an underground explosion. The first in the sequence showed the ground beginning to swell.

I just wonder what all those experiments have done to the geology of the area.

that you might be a tree surgeon....and I could use the help of one as most of my tree and shrub shaping winds up not being completed until I'm at least 1/2 foot below soil level.;)

My wife just got an article in the Abq paper
by drpruner / July 20, 2005 7:56 AM PDT

when she replied to a request for interesting name stories: She works as a landscape designer! They also got a trumpet player named Bluett.

''Then Amos answered and said to Amaziah ... I was a herdsman and a nipper of figs of sycamore trees.'' (Amos 7:14) So of course I always think of him as a Pruner.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
