    What probably happened with Mr. Haupt’s copy, was, that as CBS’ Paley Center ‘restored’ it, a copy was built on a hard drive, from which a DVD copy was made. The Paley Center is named after long-time CBS president William Paley. Of course, CBS neglected to tell Mr. Haupt about this, hence the low-ball offer.

    That is one inept-looking lump of a leopard.

    Polk was responsible for the Mexican War, which included the famous stand at The Alamo – didn’t help his popularity, at all. I still have my ‘74 X1/9, with over 200,000 miles on it. All that’s ever been necessary is simple basic maintenance – regular oil changes, air filters, plugs, etc – have replaced 2 alternators, 1 water pump, and swapped in an electronic ignition system. The one thing different is to change the cam belt about every 25,000miles, but that’s an easy, completely external job, requiring no engine disassembly, and just a few basic hand tools. Drove it to the east coast and back, carrying two of us with luggage, in ’77, without so much as a hiccup, and averaged better than 30 mpg.

    It’s likely not ‘another’ volcano, just the same one, rebuilding its cone, as has happened with Krakatau, Mt. St. Helens, and many others.

    Hm – looks like that second boat is carrying something that looks a lot like elephant tusks … not a good image nowadays.

    The Federal Reserve, as we know it, did not exist, yet, during Jackson’s presidency. What he did do was veto the renewal of the charter of the Second Bank of the US – a forerunner of the FedRes. Threw the bankers into a tizzy – they have bad-mouthed him ever since. The ‘Fed’ would not become a legislatively protected cartel until 1913, under Wilson, who said it was ‘the biggest mistake I ever made’.

    Hm … they’re in Paris, an ape is a ‘second-story man’ … wonder if Mr. Poe is watching with interest … ?

    Kata Kolok – no doubt useful when hunting in the forest.

    It’s still common practice to report harvest yield, regardless of the crop, in ‘bushels per acre’. The capacity/volume measure is preferred because the weight can vary quite a bit, depending on the % of moisture content.

    It’s been said that, in order to achieve more ‘desirable’ characteristics in the cocker spaniel breed, they “bred the brains out of it”.
