The L.L.Bean Super Deluxe Book Pack is a 40-liter backpack designed for teens, with a padded laptop sleeve (for a 15-inch laptop), a padded back, and plenty of organizational pockets. Like the Original Book Pack, this pack is sturdy and well made, with heavy-duty 420-denier ripstop nylon. But when this bag is filled, its three cascading pockets expand outward, making it feel bulky and unbalanced. There is also no chest clip or hip belt to help distribute the weight.
According to TCM host Dave Karger's afterword to an April 2021 broadcast of the film, Boorman re-created the street on which he lived. The million-dollar, 40-acre set was the largest constructed in England since World War II. The main film set was built on the disused runway at the former Wisley Airfield in Surrey and other scenes by the river were shot near Shepperton Lock. Filming also took place in Hightown Road, Ringwood, Hampshire. Filming also occurred at Bray Studios in Berkshire.
In 1987, Roger Ebert wrote: "Maybe there is something in the very nature of war, in the power of guns and bombs, that appeals to the imagination of little boys. Bombers and fighter planes and rockets and tanks are thrilling at that age when you are old enough to understand how they work but too young to understand what they do. John Boorman's Hope and Glory is a film about that precise season in the life of a young British boy who grows up in a London suburb during World War II. The film is first of all a painstaking re-creation of the period. All of the cars and signs look right, and there are countless small references to wartime rationing, as when the older sister draws seams on her legs to make fake nylons. But after re-creating the period, Boorman also reconstructs the very feeling that was in the air. Hope and Glory is an enormous success right now in England, where every frame must have its special memories for British audiences. Through American eyes, it is a more universal film, not so much about war as about memory. When we are young, what happens is not nearly as important as what we think happens. Perhaps that's true even when we are not so young."
For generations, gardeners all across the United States have tucked gladiolus corms (a.k.a., glads) into their gardens in spring in anticipation of being delighted by their beautiful flower spikes that appear just a few months later. Freshly cut, long-stemmed glads are a late-summer tradition and can be found at almost any farmer's market or county fair across our land. Indeed, someone once observed that glads are "as American as apple pie."
Glads may be planted as early as a month before the average last frost date and at two-week intervals thereafter, for a succession of blooms. The last planting should be no later than early July so that the corms have enough time to develop and mature before frost. The time from planting until bloom varies from 70 to 90 or more days, depending on weather conditions and variety.
Glads do not look well in the garden unless old flowers are harvested. Since they are used primarily for cutting, spikes should be picked in their prime for maximum life indoors. Cut the spike when the first floret is showing color. To cut the spike, insert a sharp knife above the second to fourth leaf and make a slanting cut up the stem. Immerse in water immediately to promote water uptake and prevent wilting of the petals. Be sure to leave at least two, and preferably four, leaves on the plant after cutting spikes to help corms mature properly. Gladiolus spikes are very geotropic and should be stored in a vertical position until they are used.
Corms should be stored during the winter at a temperature of 35 to 45 degrees Fahrenheit in a well-ventilated area. Airy containers such as loose-weave baskets, mesh bags or old nylon stockings make good containers that may be hung out of the way. Dust corms before storage with an all-purpose garden fungicide to guard against insect and disease damage while in storage.
Sourced from farms that use regenerative agricultural practices. This technique gives land a rest so it can absorb carbon, retain water and restore biodiversity to the pastures where the cattle graze. That means not only minimizing negative impact, but potentially having a net positive impact on the land.

A Normal Trait that is as Flexible as it is Manageable. This information is designed to help demystify the common trait of dog to dog aggression. Dog aggression shows up in numerous breeds, and it is generally "no big deal" ...unless you deny it, misunderstand it or exploit it. Like so many dog owners, we expect that our dogs have the potential to show some degree of dog aggression in select situations. Our job as responsible stewards is to keep our pets out of those situations by reading their body signals and understanding their individual limits. At the same time, we work to improve the tolerance of each dog through appropriate socializing opportunities. Because dog aggression is not a "one size fits all" trait, there are four very common levels of dog-tolerance outlined below that we have come to recognize in our work with the dogs.1. Dog Social - A dog that truly enjoys the company of other dogs, including housemate dogs. Very easy going; forgives even the rudest dog manners. Dog-social dogs include most puppies and a percentage of socially mature (14 months and older) Pit Bulls. Some call these dogs 'cold' Pit Bulls.
Recommendations for Dog Introductions - Introductions with other dogs can be a bit tricky with Pit Bulls. Some Pit Bulls simply will not get along with other dogs. Others may only get along with dogs of the opposite sex or may get along with a few select dogs. There are some Pit Bulls who have poor greeting behavior, but when carefully introduced they may end up doing fine with other dogs. Then there are Pit Bulls who are very dog friendly. It is important to recognize your Pit Bull's level of tolerance for other dogs.When considering introductions, remember that some Pit Bulls do not enjoy the company of other dogs. It may not be advisable in some situations to introduce dogs at all. Respect each dog's personality and do not push dogs to 'be friends."How to Introduce your Pit Bull to Another DogParallel leash-walking, on neutral territory with two handlers is a great way to introduce dogs. Neutral territory means an area where neither dog has been or where neither dog resides. An unfamiliar, neutral territory is best to avoid territorial behavior in either dog. Both dogs should be wearing properly fitted collars and be on nylon or leather leashes. Prong collars, choke chains, and flex-leads should not be used when introducing Pit Bulls.While taking a short walk, allow the dogs to curve around in a natural manner. Both handlers should have a firm hold of their leashes, however, they should try to maintain a U-shaped bend in the lead. Taut, tight leashes may communicate tension to the dogs and should be avoided if possible. Avoid face-face, head-on introductions between the dogs. Instead, walk parallel to each other, a few feet apart, and alternate which dog is ahead of the other. Also, do not allow a dog to greet another dog if he/she is dragging you towards the other dog or is misbehaving in any way (pulling, jumping, or lunging). Doing so will result in training the dog to misbehave to gain access to the other dogs! The dog does not make the decision as to whom he will meet and when. You do!If the dogs appear to be friendly to each other, allow brief sniffing with one dog perpendicular or "T-shaped" to the other. After a brief sniffing, each dog should be called away by the handlers. If either dog stiffens, stands up on its toes, or shows any aggressive posturing, call the dogs away immediately and interrupt the interaction. It is important to interrupt before things go wrong so that you can preserve the possibility of a successful interaction at a later time. It might be necessary to take several walks, in different locations, over time. Multiple introductions in this manner give you a better read for how the dogs will do. Do not rush this process if the introductions seem 'iffy' in any way. Stop the introduction if either dog is showing signs of fear or aggression. Signs of fear or aggression can include: raised hackles, stiff posturing, lip curling, growling, air snapping, tail tucked between legs, one dog avoiding the other or wanting to hide behind the handler, lunging, or freezing.If the leash walking is successful, it may then be appropriate to go to a fenced area and have one dog on leash, and one off. One handler might work obedience with the leashed dog, while letting the other dog roam around, allowing them to get used to each other's presence and scent. Usually in this scenario, the resident dog is loose, and the new dog is leashed. This gives one dog the ability to safely check things out and move away as needed while you maintain control of the other dog. Make sure the yard or fenced area is free of items that may possibly trigger a fight such as high-value toys, bones, rawhides, etc.When introducing dogs on leash, make sure that the leashes do not become tangled. Entangled leashes can increase tension and result in a conflict between dogs.Off-Leash Play: Keeping it Safe and Fun!If the dogs appear to be getting along and your leash walks have been successful, then you might try both dogs off leash. This should ONLY be done in a fenced, fully enclosed area. Always make sure that both dogs are wearing appropriately fitted collars and that there are two handlers present in case there is a conflict between dogs. Also keep in mind that Pit Bull play can be rough and that it is important to periodically interrupt the play before it escalates into a conflict. The handlers can interrupt the play simply by doing some recalls and then releasing the dogs to go play again. What a great opportunity to practice an important obedience skill - the recall - amid distraction!We recommended having two handlers present when introducing a Pit Bull dog to another dog. A squirt bottle can be handy to deter inappropriate behavior, however, keep in mind that it will not stop a fight if one ensues. A water squirt bottle can be used as a mild deterrent for mouthy, mounting, or other inappropriate behaviors. Handlers of Pit Bull dogs should be prepared if a fight occurs. For more information on how to prevent a fight and how to break one up if it occurs visit What if My Pit Bull Doesn't Play Well With Others?Some Pit Bulls will not play well with other dogs, particularly in an off-leash situation. If you find that your dog gets too aroused during off-leash play, you might limit the time the dogs are off-leash together. For example: if you observe that your dog gets over stimulated after about 15 minutes of playtime, then stop the play after 5 or 10 minutes, before the dog gets over stimulated. Make sure you are praising your dog for appropriate play skills when he demonstrates them. In addition, make sure you select dogs with very good social skills for your Pit Bull to interact with!Information provided by and 041b061a72
