Hurricanes Throughout History

Pictured above: Mississippi Gulf Coast in august 1969 following Hurricane Camille. This scene of destruction was typical of the damage left by Hurricane Camille when it ravaged the Mississippi Gulf Coast in August 1969. The eye of the storm passed directly over the Bay of St.Louis and killed or injured hundreds of Gulf Coast residents. (SSC-97-032)/NASA. VAV!/August 29, 2014 "By Chrismus! Wasn't that hurricane a lulu? I was settin here readin when I noticed it was gettin so damn dark. I couldn't see... I looked out the winder and saw our big tree going over as easy as you please -not all at once, but little by little. I watched it down and said that I bet the one in front wouldn't go for that was stronger. Then I saw one of our garage doors spinning by the winder and right across the street on to Doctor Brown's lawn. Somehow it got going on its edge like one of them straw hats we used to wear, and it was certainly making time." - One witness's description September 21, 1938, regarding a Category 3 hurricane nicknamed "the Long Island Express" Hurricanes have been and always will be an integral part of life in the United States...the Hurricane season in the Atlantic begins June 1st and ends November 30th and the Eastern Pacific hurricane season begins May 15th and also ends November 30th.    What exactly is a Hurricane? Hurricanes, also known as cyclones in the western Pacific or typhoons in the Indian Ocean, are large and violent storm systems that begin in tropical seas during the summer or fall.  They are capable of producing torrential rains, large hail, dangerous waves, epic flooding, violent winds with a well-defined circulation and minimum sustained winds of 74 miles per hour (64 knots) or higher, and tornadoes,  all of which may result in catastrophic property damage and staggering loss of life.   

 

JACK DANIEL’S GRILLED PORK CHOPS RECIPE

VAV!/August 28, 2014/Contributed by Bobby of The Blog Chef It's time to fire up the grill again for these Jack Daniel's grilled pork chops. The pork chops are marinated in a Jack Daniel's sauce and then grilled to perfection. This recipe is perfect for summer cookouts. The marinade consists of ingredients such as Jack Daniel's whiskey, molasses, chili pepper paste and soy sauce. If you have a problem finding the chili pepper paste, a well-known brand is Gourmet Gardens and it can be commonly found in the refrigerators in the product section of Wal-Mart. For this recipe you can either use bone-in pork chops or boneless pork chops, either will work fine. If you use boneless pork chops you will only need about 2lbs. I like to reserve a little bit of the marinade before adding the pork chops to use for basting while they are on the grill. These go great served with onion rings or a cold salad. Enjoy.

 

How To Create A Fairy Garden

Pictured above:  Fairy Garden created by Ashcombes VAV!/August 25, 2014 It's time to create a magical, mystical, miniature fairy garden. Make it a place where Fairies can enjoy all the delightful moments in life, along with room to frolic in the meadow. First things first...fairies are nimble, pert, and small, so begin by thinking small. Next, you'll want to gather together a small container such as a box or basket, terrarium; an assortment of small plants that will please any fairy sensibility; and small ornaments and treasures to complete the fairies' playland. Arrange your amassed collection of plants and ornaments to form a natural landscape especially suited for fairies in mind. Remember that any fairy worthy of being called a fairy  always possesses a unique and extraordinary style!  So, let your imagination run rampant as you create walkways and secret nooks where fairies may nestle.

Doing It Right: Guardians of the Galaxy

   Pictured above:  Guardians of the Galaxy VAV!/August 23, 2014/Contributed by Stars in Her Eye Bringing superheroes to life is more than just getting the rights to vintage comic material and slapping it on ten big screens. Studios have had to walk the tight rope between tacky and tasteful when bringing superheroes to life. Movie and TV adaptions run the gambit from campy (the Adam West Batman) to thrilling (X-Men) to just plain sucky (the poor Hulk movies). Studios find success often with typical characters that have become mainstream (Batman, Superman), while also bringing lesser known characters into the everyday media fold (Iron Man). The latest trend? Ensemble movies.
