Tapping walnut trees
Tapping walnut trees is similar to tapping maple trees. The main difference is in the amount of sap collected from walnuts vs maples. Walnut trees have more heart wood and less of the white sap wood while maple trees have more sap wood which provides a greater yield of sap. Michael Farrell, the director of Cornell University's Uihlein Forest, explains the process of tapping walnut trees.

Click here to SUBSCRIBE to the official This Old House YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=thisoldhouse Shopping List for How to Plant a Large Shade Tree: - Shade tree - Compost, superphosphate, and starter fertilizer, for amending the soil - Bark mulch Tools List for How to Plant a Large Shade Tree: - Small sledgehammer, for tapping in wood stake - Wood stake, for marking the center of the planting hole - Tape measure - Rope - Edger, for cutting the grass around the perimeter of the planting hole - Cutter mattock, for stripping off lawn - Shovel - Wheelbarrow - Tarps, for holding excavated soil - Three-tine cultivator, to loosen matted roots - Utility knife or pocketknife, for cutting the burlap from the root ball - Bypass pruners, to sever girdling roots - Metal stakes and plastic chains, for securing the tree after planting - Manual stake driver, for pounding in metal stakes - Drip-irrigation bags, to slowly water tree Steps for How to Plant a Large Shade Tree: 1. Call the local utility company to confirm that there aren't any buried cables or pipes beneath where you want to plant the tree. 2. Have the nursery deliver the tree and drop it right beside the proposed planting spot. 3. Drive a wood stake into the center of the planting hole. 4. Measure the diameter of the tree's root ball. The planting hole must be twice as wide as the root ball. 5. Wrap a loop of rope around the stake, then tie it off so that its length equals to the radius of the root-ball diameter. 6. Slip an edging tool into the rope loop, then pull out on the edger to straighten the rope. 7. Stomp the edger into the ground to cut through the grass. Lift up the edger, move over a few inches and stomp it into the grass again. 8. Repeat the previous step until you've cut a circular outline of the planting hole all the way around the center stake. 9. Pull out the stake and rope. 10. Use a garden mattock and shovel to remove the grass from within the planting-hole outline. Shovel the grass into a wheelbarrow. 11. Dig the planting hole to a depth equal to the height of the root flare on the tree. Shovel the dirt onto tarps. 12. Set the tree into the hole, then rotate it until its best-looking side faces the house. 13. Check the tree to make sure it's perfectly straight and not leaning to one side. If necessary, shovel soil under the low side to straighten out the tree. 14. Cut the burlap off the root ball. 15. Scratch the sides of the root ball with a three-tine cultivator to loosen matted roots. 16. Check the top of the root ball for any girdling roots that are wrapped around the tree trunk. If you find any, cut them away with pruners. 17. Carefully scrape away the soil from the top of the root ball to expose the root flare. 18. Mix compost, superphosphate, and starter fertilizer into the excavated soil. 19. Backfill around the tree with the amended soil. 20. Water the tree immediately after planting. 21. Pound into the lawn two metal stakes, one on each side of the tree. Tie the tree to the stakes with plastic chains. 22. Spread about 2 inches of bark mulch around the tree, but don't pile it up against the trunk. 23. Tie two drip-irrigation bags to the base of the tree. Fill the bags with water every day for one week, then twice a week after that.

How to Know If You Can Grow an Autumn Blaze Maple Tree
Watch more Lawn Care videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/423040-How-to-Know-If-You-Can-Grow-an-Autumn-Blaze-Maple-Tree Step 1: Look up Stand in the spot where you want to plant the tree and look up. Make sure nothing is in the way -- Autumn Blazes can grow to be 50 feet tall. Step 2: Look for shade Look for shade that still allows some sunlight. The tree will grow better in a partially shaded area. Step 3: Feel the soil Feel the soil. The Autumn Blaze requires moist but well-draining soil. Even though the tree is relatively drought tolerant, plant it in an area that you can water during a dry spell. Tip If your soil is compacted, you can aerate it to better accommodate the tree. Step 4: Measure out 20 feet Measure 20 feet from the nearest building or other tall tree. The Autumn Blaze has a tendency to spread up to 40 feet in diameter. Step 5: Consider shallow roots Consider the impact of its shallow and sometimes surface root system. Chances are this tree is a good choice for just about anywhere you want to plant it. Did You Know? The Autumn Blaze maple tree is a hybrid maple that was created in Ohio by crossing the best qualities of silver and red maple trees.

I demonstrate how to go about getting the correct bolt size and how to pick the kit you need. Now I mentioned in the video that you should nt use an impact to install bolts, that was wrong. I meant to say is that you should not use impacts to install nuts and bolts on critical things like cylinder heads, intake manifolds, sensors and various soft materials like aluminum and plastic.

Steve Miesen shows how to remove and kill English Ivy on trees
Removing ivy is easy if you know how! This video shows the simple tools and techniques to remove ivy off trees and the ground. Also most native plants and trees can be saved on the ground by pulling the ivy and using the tools on the ivy as necessary. When Ivy vines on trees are very large they can be cut at chest high and then down to the ground (As low to the ground as possible). Ideally it is good to create a lifesaver circle (from 3 to 6 feet) around the base of the tree where there is no ivy on the ground. Maintaining the protective ring protects the trees.

How to Get Flat Cake Layers
How to Get Flat Cake Layers Blog post with all the instructions: https://preppykitchen.com/how-to-get-perfect-flat-cake-layers/ Few things frustrate me more than domed cake layers with burnt edges. I make cakes QUITE often so you can imagine I like things to go smoothly especially since I’m usually filming and sharing the results. When I first started out my cakes had a very “home made” look about them, the corners were rounded and they often sagged at the edge or even drifted off to one side. The taste was good but appearances matter so I would have to trim the top off of my domed layers to get a flat top but then you end up with extra cake and lots of crumbs! Eventually I realized the problem wasn’t with the recipe but the bake itself. When you bake cake layers the outside heats up and baked more quickly than the center, which is insulated by the rest of the batter surrounding it. So basically the outside of the cake layer bakes first; the inside of the cake layer has more time to rise and by the time the inside is set and baked through the outside is starting to dry out and burn. This is why you see so many cakes with dark edges which are not pillowy soft. Here's a link to buy the cake strips I use if you want to pick up a set: https://amzn.to/2LJdUDu SUBSCRIBE ►https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCTvYEid8tmg0jqGPDkehc_Q?sub_confirmation=1 -------------------------------------------------------------------------- ADD ME ON: Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/PreppyKitchen Instagram: http://instagram.com/PreppyKitchen Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/PreppyKitchen Website: http://www.PreppyKitchen.com

2014 Isaac Asimov Memorial Debate: Selling Space
Space exploration is entering a new era. Dozens of aerospace companies have emerged in recent years, all with the goal of commercializing space as never before. From serving NASA's cargo needs to sending tourists on space vacations to mining asteroids for profit, this next generation of entrepreneurs, and not NASA, may be the ones who transform space into our backyard, possibly creating the first-ever trillionaires. Host and moderator Neil deGrasse Tyson, who is the Frederick P. Rose Director of the Hayden Planetarium, lead the 2014 Isaac Asimov Memorial Debate, Selling Space, with a panel of entrepreneurs and space historians on March . #AsimovDebate #space #commercialization #spaceexploration #sellingspace Panelists Include: Wanda M. Austin, President and CEO of The Aerospace Corporation. Austin served on President Obama's Review of Human Spaceflight Plans Committee in 2009, and in 2010 she was appointed to the Defense Science Board. Michael Gold, Director of DC Operations and Business Growth, Bigelow Aerospace. Gold is also chairman of Commercial Space Transportation Advisory Committee, Federal Aviation Administration. John Logsdon, Professor Emeritus, Space Policy & International Affairs, George Washington University. Logsdon in a space policy analyst and historian. Elliot Pulham, Chief Executive Officer, Space Foundation. The Space Foundation advocates for commercial, military, and government space interests. Tom Shelley, President, Space Adventures, Ltd. Space Adventures provides opportunities for private spaceflight and space tourism. Robert Walker, Executive Chairman, Wexler & Walker Public Policy Associates. Walker served as chairman of the House Committee on Science and Technology from 1977 to 1997. The late Dr. Isaac Asimov, one of the most prolific and influential authors of our time, was a dear friend and supporter of the American Museum of Natural History. In his memory, the Hayden Planetarium is honored to host the annual Isaac Asimov Memorial Debate—generously endowed by relatives, friends, and admirers of Isaac Asimov and his work—bringing the finest minds in the world to the Museum each year to debate pressing questions on the frontier of scientific discovery.

Part 6 Black Saturday Sprinkler System SOUTH EAST
Following the You Tube video- Sprinkler System Saves House on Black Saturday (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YCN7wrMGnjo) I have received many requests for technical details about the sprinkler system that I fitted to my home. The six short videos display the sprinkler system from the different angles around the home. These were shot during the pre season maintenance of the sprinklers when the heads are cleaned and the pump is serviced. I must emphasize that a total fire protection plan is required and that this sprinkler system plays just a part of the total survival plan. Firstly the location, aspect and layout of the home paddock is essential. The placement of sheds to break the wind, the placement of concrete water tanks next to the west side of the home, the close proximity of a large dam that is only 25 metres from the home. Clearing of vegetation close to the house is important and selection of trees and shrubs a further distance away. Blackwoods and bottlebrush trees worked for me and were unburnt but died the next day. The system I employed cost less than $2000 to purchase and install including the pump. Number one is a quality pump, I would not use anything other than a Honda, preferably a diesel but my one is a 5 HP petrol. The 2 inch poly pipe line to the house is buried underground and the up pipe to the veranda is protected by the water fog spray. All piping and sprays are under the eaves and not above the roof line. The home is 8 metres wide by 20 metres long and is weatherboard. The 2 inch poly pipe runs along the front veranda, east side and half way along the south side, at this stage I have reduced the diameter to 1 inch poly to increase the pressure and also it was pipe I had spare. The supply pipe is tapped using saddle clamps with various length so half inch risers. three types of sprinkler heads are used- Pope rotating heads, cheap yellow rotating heads and fixed 180 degree heads. Sprinkler heads are about 3 metres apart. Improvements that could assist would be a small spray via a pin hole close to the pump to protect the pump from radiant heat. I was fortunate that my pump did not fail during the fire storm. My back up plan if the home caught on fire and I was unable to extinguish it or it was unsafe was to make the dash to the dam for protection. This would likely be after the fire front had passed and of course I would be wearing full protective CFA fire PPE including boots! Any queries you can direct to me by finding my email address on the web. This is not a commercial system, it is cheap and easy to install. I do not believe it is necessary to invest in copper pipes etc. It worked on the day that nature gave her best. Remember you must have a total plan to survive that may include leaving early. Keep to the plan and use a checklist.

How Long Does It Take To Fill A Pool?
http://www.SwimmingPoolSteve.com - how long does it take to fill a swimming pool with a garden hose? The general rule of thumb is that a single garden hose will raise the water level one inch per hour once the water level has reached the shallow end of the pool. This means that the average pool will fill in 24-72 hours depending on the volume of the pool.

Put Silver Foil In Washing Machine And You'll Be Amazed With What Happens Next
If you’re like most people, you use aluminum foil to line a roasting pan and cover your leftovers. You may even use a crumpled up piece of foil to give your pots and pans a good scour. But aluminum foil has dozens of other uses that can save you time and money. Here are 8 easy ways you can use and reuse aluminum foil that will make your life easier. 1.Improve Your Wi-Fi Signal If you’re the one who’s not satisfied with the speed of your Wi-Fi or want to increase router Wi-Fi strength, then with aluminum foil, you can increase and strengthen your Wi-Fi signals. Wrap foil to a rectangular cardboard, curve it and place it behind the antenna of your router. This aluminum foil will reflect the wireless signals into the direction that you wanted to be. 2.Fix a battery connection Over time, the little spring that holds the batteries in place within electronics such as flashlights can loosen. Take a small square of aluminum foil, about an inch squared, and fold it a few times, forming a small pad. Place the pad between the battery and the spring. The foil will keep the battery in place while completing the circuit.  3.Sharpen your scissors If you need to sharpen your scissors and get rid of rust, Fold several layers of foil and Cut smoothly through the foil ensuring all the blade touches the foil with each cut. Repeat several times, check the sharpness of scissors and repeat if needed. 4.Remove static electricity from your clothes Have you ever noticed dust particles getting attached to your clothes while drying your washed clothes? This happens because of static charge. The simple solution is to put some foil balls in the washer together with the laundry. After washing, your clothes won’t accumulate electricity and attract dust and hairs. 5.Move furniture easily Unless you're the Incredible Hulk, moving heavy furniture across carpet is difficult, back straining process. Make the process a little easier with a bit of aluminum foil. Just stick it under the furniture's legs and it should drag across the carpet much easier. 6.Protect food from burning In order to protect food from sticking in the frying pan, put a layer of foil at the bottom. This is also how you can cook without oil. 7.Seal plastic bags Fold a piece of aluminum foil over the opening of the bag. Make sure the aluminum foil covers all the plastic you intend on ironing so the iron does NOT come into contact with the actual plastic. Now run the hot iron over the foil for a minute or two, allowing the plastic to melt and seal. Let cool and remove the aluminum foil. 8.Iron clothes from both sides at once Put some aluminum foil under the clothes before ironing. Foil becomes hot really fast, and this is how your clothes can b

How To Drill A Well In Your Own Backyard!
This is a video showing the new system we designed for drilling your own water well cheaply and easily. You can buy the Kits, plans, and DVD from our website. Transcript: Does this look hard? Think you can do this? Because this is all it takes to drill your own well! Basically, what will happen is, the water will put pressure into these holes, and will push water into these holes at the bottom of the well. The sand and dirt will go with it, and then the air from the exhaust of the drill once it's done turning the bit, will be pushed up this pipe. And once it's all connected, all the way around and through that pipe, and back around and into the barrel. The barrel will catch it and slow it down. So it'll go into the top of the barrel and drain out here, run along the ground and right into here. So when the water runs down, it strains through that to keep the big roots and grass and leaves out of it, and then will run back down the well and be recycled and used again. So we have our water source here, and we're now going to start filling up the hole here. And once this is filled, it'll run out of that hole and into the well, and we'll fill the well up to within about a foot of the top. When you get to about there, that's when you're going to start drilling. This system is easy, fast, and cheap. This will work in basically any soil. It can go through rock, clay, sand, anything you've got to deal with. Of course, rock and clay will be somewhat slower. The only attention you really have to give it is, you have to feel it, feel how it's vibrating and feel when it starts to slow down, and just let it sit there and do its work. And then every now and then you'll pull up a little bit off the bottom to make sure it's flowing clear and you have all your stuff out from the head of the drill. And keep drilling! So what do you think? Are you willing to work this hard (oh, so very hard!) for your own well? Then visit our website: www.HowToDrillAWell.com To learn more about our method of well drilling be sure to pick up our Well Drilling Instructional Course DVD and plans or our DELUXE Ready-To-Drill Kit on our website at www.HowToDrillAWell.com Check out some of our other videos about DIY Water Well Drilling! The method shown in the links below is called “jetting” or “washing” a well. This is a great method if you only need a shallow well but tends to be limited to only 40 feet, and can’t drill through hard soils like our drill can. But if you have an easy well to drill you should totally check these out! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XGq0ETzZP0E (Drill Your Own Well Series - Part 1 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ANS4awOxrI (DIY Water Well Drilling by Pentexsoft) Check out some of our other videos about DIY Water Well Drilling! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DpVVEtRmGuw (What Is a Water Well?) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MMdlL9xGHEk (Make Your Own Wellscreen) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=te3RlQmnw4g (6 Ways to Drill Your Own Water Well) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lfLNbNWzLQo (5 Things You NEED To Know FIRST) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=avynx7PJf-A (FAQ of our Well Drilling System)

How to use a reamer to make a precise hole in metal
When a precise hole is required in a piece of material a reamer is used, because a drill does not give a very exact diameter hole. This video shows how to use a reamer in a piece of steel. Normally you would drill the hole approximately 0.2 of a millimetre smaller than the reamer that you are using. Brought to you by http://www.ultimatehandyman.co.uk/how-to/table/metalworking/

Installing Threaded Inserts in Wood Without Special Tools | Quick Tips
Normally, threaded inserts are installed using a special tool created by the manufacturer. But what if you don't have this special tool? Well don't despair, we have you covered. In this video we'll show you a way to install threaded inserts without a tool in wood. All you need is a bolt. To be clear, using the tool specifically designed for installing the threaded inserts you have is the best and easiest way to install them. But in a pinch, this is a viable alternative for most installations in wood. This trick only works for threaded inserts designed for wood applications. We do not advise trying this with threaded inserts for metal applications. You can get your own Threaded Inserts for wood here: https://www.albanycountyfasteners.com/Brass-thread-inserts-s/925.htm For all your other fastener needs, please visit us: https://www.albanycountyfasteners.com For more Fasteners 101 information, please visit our website here: https://www.albanycountyfasteners.com/Fastener-Education-and-Information-s/1128.htm

Honest reviews and advice. Hold tight, and welcome to today's plumberparts.co.uk video. Oh my God. Anyway, today we're going to be looking at feed and expansion tanks, and the systems that they feed and how they work. We're going to go up into a loft and show you one in situ, and so you can have a look at that, and be marvelled by the positions people put them in. Just imagine that this is the loft bit, here, and this is the roof. This is the ceiling running across here, and there's your loft area there. You'd put the tank here, wouldn't ya? But no, loads of people just always put them right there. Miles away. And I'm not going to put any lights up in there, and then I'm going to cover it in rockwall. Cheers, buddy! Thanks for that! Anyway, so firstly, have a look at how they work. I don't know where the whiteboard's gone, it's disappeared, so we're going to use... A bit of wood. Don't know that you'd be saying that I don't help you guys out. I'm using wood. Right then, so, you've got your boiler here, alright? You've got your flow, you've got a pump, let's say this is the house plan, so you've got two motorised valves, okay? And then you've got your coil for your cylinder going back to your boiler, and also you've got a couple of radiators on the system, upstairs and downstairs. Let's make it a nice little two pipe system as well, but as they say in the world of the fends, and a common return. Everything going around like that. Lovely. Now, we draw a line up here, above this line is the loft. A place where no man should venture unless they really have to, because it's complete grief. No one ever has fun in lofts. So, up in the loft we have a tank. We're going to shape this tank like that, it's like that, okay, it's that big. In the tank, we have, a cold water feed, call if CWF, with a ball valve. Ball valve. So the water level is there. You have either a bottle that is a larger size bottle that allows the water and air to split slightly when it's filling up, and gives the air a chance to go upwards. Off the top of that, this pipe here, which is the expansion pipe. Now, this is where people get a bit silly. You have the feed pipe, there'll be a hole in the bottom of this tank here below water level, and that will go along and should really go down into here, okay? So your feeding water down into the system, okay? Not all the time, just when it needs it. So there's a leak, you'll sometimes see the ball valve's dropped a little bit, and there'll be a drip going on, then your nose starts to twitch. You'll be like, hmm, there's a leak. Better sort that out, hadn't I? A lot of people, though, what they'll do is they'll be lazy and they'll just put this into here okay? They'll put this into the side of the expansion pipe. Because they're all the same system. So, if we thought about it like this, the water level across the whole system is like that. Now, as we've said in our video about pressurised heating systems, when you heat cold water up the molecules and the particles in the water start to get more and more excited and active. Like Ministry of Sound, it's going mental. So these particles start moving more and basically the water body expands. Now, as we said in a pressurised system, you have an expansion vessel in that that takes that expansion. But not here. That's why we've got this thing here, the expansion pipe, right? So, the water level is just about here when it's cold, now when this all comes on, and these radiators and everything heats up, the expansion is not enough to be able to push on this body of water here, but it will be able to push slightly up this pipe here a little bit. So you put the crook high enough so it can go up a little bit, but not so high that it goes into the system. But if you do have a problem and it's over expanding, or anything like that, it's going to run up here and safely go into your tank. If it gets really bad, the water level will come up, and you'll have an overflowed pipe probably about here, that will run off outside and out of the house. Right, so if we wanted to drain one of these systems out, it's really, really easy to do. There's usually a valve on the cold water feed here, turn that off, go to the lowest point in the system, you'll often have one on the boiler, and in front of the drain cock. Then you can undo the drain cock there, take the hose outside, and the water level will drop out of here, drop out of there drop down out of here, and drop down slowly out of the system as you drain it out.

How they work, what the plumbing connections are and where to buy them online Please subscribe and favourite! Plumberparts.co.uk - Honest reviews and advice. Holler, and welcome to this week's Plumberparts.co.uk video. Today we're gonna look at indirect vented hot water cylinders so, enough of me looking cool and amazing, let's have a look at this. So first up what we're gonna do here is remove an old indirect vented hot water cylinder and put this new one in here. There's a few connexions on these that you need to know about and basically how they work. Firstly, we have this part here, this is where our immersion heater goes in that will screw into there, seal out on this thread or on this flange and that is basically the electrical backup heater to heat up any water should there be a problem with the coil. If you actually look inside you will see there is a coil just inside down there that has hot water coming from the boiler that transfers heat into the main hot water cylinder and into the water. That coil is fed by a flow and a return on the side of the tank just down here. The flow always goes into the top, hot at the top and it comes out at the bottom slightly cooler. So that's your flow and your return for the boiler. So you've got a cold feed down here on the opposite side to the heating flow and return and a lot of people actually tee in their drain off just here or if it's on the opposite side of the door you'll run a 15 mil part round to the front so someone can get to it. Right, so lets have a look at the old tank. We've got very, very tight installation here, this is gonna be a nightmare. Down at the bottom here we've got the drain off, as you can see the old engineer that fitted this put a little 15 mil part round so you can get to it. So that's nice and considerate. We've got the thermostat that controls the two port valve or the three port valve depending on what type of heating system it is. We've got our heating flow and our heating return going into the coil that I showed you on the other tank earlier. And at the top already removed, we've got the outlet, this is the hot water outlet that goes off to all your taps and as you can see down the back there we've got the cold water feed. And as you can see at the top as well we've got a immersion heater, generally when I'm changing these just put a new immersion heater in, it's worth doing. So at the moment we're draining down the actual hot water tank itself. Now, we've valved off the cold feed just up there and we are now draining it all down. So once we've done that we are then gonna have to drain down the heating system, so make sure that's all turned off there so you can drain that down and then you'll be able to remove these unions here. So while we're waiting for that tank to drain down what I usually do is get all the bits and bobs prepared on the new tank to go in. Now, looking at this new inlet here for the immersion heater, what I always find is a good thing to do is because the immersion heater needs to seal on this flat face that's been covered up by this foam, the first thing I'd do is get out a knife of some sort and just try and cut the foam back a bit. So I cut round here and remove that foam. Once you've got most of the foam taken off just get some emery cloth in there pop it round and give this a good clean. If you want to know how to install an immersion heater into an indirect or a direct cylinder or a vented and unvented cylinder, just go back to our channel, type in change immersion heater and you'll find our video there. Once your sure you've drained the actual tank water itself and there's no water coming out of the taps or out of the hose at the bottom you can cut the pipe that feeds to the tank. Generally I'd always recommend you cut that pipe high up, especially in a situation like this where the feed tank goes down the back of the cupboard. If you cut it higher up, then when you make your second connexion, when you put the new tank in, it will be high up and easy for you to get at. You do not want to be leaning down behind a tank in a cupboard trying to do your connexions down there. You want to do that outside or in the room itself, it makes life a lot easier. So once you've cut that pipe then you can move to the flow and return, always slacking off the top one first, okay, you only do this when you know you've drained the heating system down and everything. Make sure there's no water coming out of there.

DIY Garden wall Video - Miniwall® garden how to video
Learn how to build your own garden edge with Adbri Masonry's Miniwall edging block. Jason Hodges will show you how simple the project is and how much of a difference it will make to your garden or backyard. www.adbrimasonry.com.au One of the easiest things you can do at home to make your gardening and mowing the lawn easy, is putting in a really good garden edge. Now, this here is called miniwall. These guys here with no lobes on the top, are mincaps and together they can really define a space for you. The best thing about them about the miniwall is because of the way they're designed have a wide front and a narrow back but they have the same face. So, if you put them next to each other butt up, you can get nice straight lines but if you flip them around you can start to create curves. What I've got here is a couple of stakes that I can run a string line. Just measure off your fence, get the distance the same at both ends and it's parallel. And then, I like to use a nice bright string line so that you don't end up tripping over it. When I set the string line, I'm going to pull it nice and tight, I could mark it out with paint if I wanted to or if I keep it up a little bit higher I can dig underneath it and not worry about cutting through this. And being 800ml I've allowed about 200ml for my block and 600ml for the garden bed and that's plenty of garden bed for a hedge that we want to get to say, two or three metres high. Now, I'm just working on the footing. The good rule of thumb is you want them twice as wide as the wall that's going up and that's going to give us stability in the ground and it also happens to be the width of the wacker. So, I can put down road base, go over the top, compact it and make it nice and strong. Now, we're going into the ground about 100ml of road base compacted and then over the top a damp mix of sand and cement. Not wet, just damp. So, you can screed it and get it nice and flat and level and when you tap down your first block it sits just in the top of it. Now, this is probably the most delicate part. You want to start level. If you start level, you will finish level. Now, coming off the bit that I've already done, if I go through the sand, cement mix and get my spirit level, level and then once it's remotely right you can grab your timber float. If there's any hollows you can fill them in. Tap them down too. And laying the blocks, well I reckon it's the easiest part. It's obviously the most rewarding. The straight ones, well they're dead easy. You just alternate a small face and a large face and that gives you a nice straight line and then for the curve, the large face on the outside will give you a nice gentle curve. Actually, 21 of them will give you a complete full circle and if you've got feature trees it's great to put one around it. But, all you need to do to make sure you're starting level and finishing level is grab yourself a little spirit level, have a look down at it. At the moment it's leaning back. That means, every course that goes up from here will be level and I won't have to check it. Go along with that string line, might come forward a touch. And this is the genius of the interlocking block. Move on to the next one. Now, the only two tips here, make sure the base and what you've already laid is nice and clean. So, if you've got a little hand broom it's a good start. But, if you've got the bottom level it's as easy as just making sure it's a stretcher bond which is the same as like a brick house is built on which gives it strength. And putting the cap on is as simple as breathing. Some liquid nails, I'm using the landscape version here. Just across the front and the back of the lugs. Staggering the joints still. And if you've done a good job you can lay them just by tapping your hand. We're onto the fun bit. Now, a really good tip here is put a little bit of soil behind your garden hedge, then place everything else. Stand back and have a look, make sure it fits and looks right and then back fill around them. And, what you're finished with is a great a little job that you can knock up in a weekend but make a huge difference to your place. The plants and the mulch just set it off and when the turf's in place you've got a really defined boundary between the garden bed and the lawn, meaning it's easier to mow the lawn and easy to keep your plants where they're meant to be. You know, if you ask a landscape designer what's the most important thing to think about when you're designing your garden, they'll say it's the bones. Where the paths go, where the driveway sits. The garden beds. The clothes line. The garbage bins. All the basics that you need to make a garden work for generations. Well, this here ticks a lot of those boxes. It gives this garden definition and makes the lawn easy to look after and it looks a million bucks.

Water Softener Installation Part 3 Drain Connection Options
Please share this video https://youtu.be/k9TSeZcTFuA For more great information about water treatment, subscribe! https://www.youtube.com/user/WaterStoreMidland Follow me https://www.facebook.com/TheWaterFilterEstore/ https://twitter.com/FilterEstore https://www.linkedin.com/company/the-water-filter-estore/ or email [email protected] or [email protected] Check out our online store at https//www.TheWaterFilterEstore.com or our full service store in Midland, Ontario at https//www.TheWaterStoreMidland.com According to most plumbing codes a water softener drain line must not be connected directly to the household waste system. This is to prevent non-potable water from flowing backwards possibly mixing and contaminating potable (drinking) water. By code Water Softeners must be emptied into a laundry sink, floor drain, sump hole or properly trapped special outlet, preserving an air gap of at least two times the diameter of the drain line, but in no case less than 1-1/2" above the top of the receptacle used. In addition, the end of the drain line should be secured so that there is never any chance that it can become immersed in waste fluids or it can spray water into the surrounding area. Plumbing your drain line into a laundry sink is probably the easiest and most convenient way, just secure the line 1 1/2" above the rim of the sink and you're done. Make sure to not leak the stopper or anything else in the laundry sink. The next easiest way is to run the drain line to a floor drain as long as you have a way to secure the end point 1 1/2" above the grill. My favourite is to run the drain into a drain stack just be sure to maintain the air gap. Whenever there isn't a way to connect to a laundry sink or into a floor drain you can use an Air Gap Fitting and drain over head to plumbing from above the install location. These Air Gap Fittings are plumbing code required whenever you hard plumb the drain line (waste line) of water treatment equipment to your household plumbing. These need to be installed with a "p" trap to ensure no sewer gases enter the household.

How to tell if a watermelon is ripe
It may seem difficult to tell if your homegrown watermelons are ripe. Pick it too soon, or too late--and you might as well throw it away! Look at the tendril and spoon (the very small spoon shaped leaf) that grow closest to your melon--both will dry and turn brown when your watermelon is ripe. Also if you look at the spot on your melon where it rests on the ground, it will turn from white to cream or yellowish. If there is no spot, it is probably because your melon has rolled or been moved from the original resting spot.

A Rebel's Recollections by George Cary Eggleston
George Cary Eggleston's Civil War memoir begins with a separate essay on the living conditions and political opinions of Virginia’s citizenry before secession. The body of the work contains vivid descriptions and accounts of the men and women of the South during the time of the Confederacy. Eggleston praises its war heroes, Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson, and Jeb Stuart, but is highly critical of Jefferson Davis and of his government’s inefficiencies, red-tape, and favoritism. The book concludes with the war's end and a tribute to the character of the newly freed slaves. This informative and engaging work, much of which appeared in The Atlantic Monthly, enjoyed great popularity throughout the country. Originally published in 1874, it went through four editions by 1905. 1874 Preface - 00:00 1905 Preface - 01:41 The Old Regime in the Old Dominion - 07:23 Chapter 1. The Mustering - 1:05:21 Chapter 2.

Guy McPherson talks about climate change, how human extinction seems evident in the near future - around 2030 or 2040 - after a following of scientific studies and predictions since 1847 which were always either accurate or surprised by a rise in temperature ( global warming ) ahead of those predictions. This exponential increase in temperature surprise the scientists when catapulted by new positive feedback loops every year, like the release of methane in the Arctic Sea and land at Siberia.

The War of the Worlds Audiobook by H.G. Wells | Audiobook with subtitles
The War of the Worlds (Version 3) H. G. WELLS No one would have believed, in the last years of the nineteenth century, that the Earth was being scrutinised and studied from across the gulf of space. With infinite complacency, humanity went about its little affairs, serene in its assurance of its empire over matter. It is possible that the micro-organisms we watch under a microscope, do the same. Few people gave thought to the idea of life on other planets, and none imagined that it could be so vastly superior in intellect to ourselves. No one considered the possibility of extra-terrestrial danger. Yet the eyes that regarded our planet were envious and unsympathetic, and slowly and surely drew their plans against us.
