About Me

Do not go gentle into that good night, Old age should burn and rave at close of day; Rage, rage against the dying of the light. Though wise men at their end know dark is right, Because their words had forked no lightning they Do not go gentle into that good night. Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay, Rage, rage against the dying of the light. Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight, And learn, too late, they grieve it on its way, Do not go gentle into that good night. Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay, Rage, rage against the dying of the light. ~~~~~~~~~ For, it ends in the blink of an eye. Carpe Diem (Seize the day)!

For those of you who serve on DU juries.

Thank you for choosing to serve. Unfortunately, that Jury is full.
Our community relies on people like you to help maintain a certain level of civil discourse, and we very much appreciate your willingness to spend some time serving on a Jury. Unfortunately, there was a glitch with our software and too many people were asked to serve on this Jury. We apologize for the inconvenience. We hope to fix this problem soon.

You remain eligible to serve on a Jury, and could be asked again at any time. When that happens, we hope that you will choose to serve again at that time. (Hopefully next time our software will not let you down.)

Thank you for your time, and thank you for your understanding.



There is a glitch.
It has happened to me twice in less than 5 minutes. Better luck next time DU!

It's snowing ... again!













Shopping for Yacht? New York Budget Offers a Tax Break

By SUSANNE CRAIGMARCH 30, 2015

Of the thousands of items packed into Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo’s $150 billion budget for New York State, one in particular seemed to float to the top: a tax credit for buyers of luxury boats.

Though the word “yacht” is never used, the budget contains a tax break for anyone in the market for a “vessel” valued at more than $230,000. Specifically, buyers will not have to pay sales tax beyond that amount, regardless of the final price tag. A vessel is defined in state law as “every description of watercraft, other than a seaplane, used or capable of being used as a means of transportation on water.”

When 18 wheels are not enough!




It was just after 7am. on August 16th, 2011, when this 285 ton anode made it's way over the Roosevelt Lake Bridge on Arizona Highway 188. This anode was on the final leg of it's long slow journey from Salt Lake City to the Freeport-McMoRan copper and gold mine in Miami, Arizona. It was reported that the anode weighed 285 tons and it's tranport rig stretched 225 feet. Proof that this was a heavy load can be seen as the load progresses across the bridge. Watch the concrete walls and the fencing on them and you will see their upward arch flatten out as the load crosses!

Fritz the Golden Retriever loves tasty human snacks, like tacos, hot dogs and donuts! Unfortunately for Fritz, he’s not the greatest at catching the treats, but he is getting better.
