Happy Birthday Volta!  Thanks for helping create an entire industry that employs me!
 
Happy 270th birthday to Alessandro Volta! Volta was credited with inventing the first electrical battery in 1799, an IEEE Milestone that paved the way for the field of electromagnetism and the development of electrical equipment.

Science. It works.
Twisting things up. T2 wire. In an effort to combat the twists and turns of Mother Nature, Dawson PPD builds some of its power lines using a special wire called T-2. “This wire is heavier, larger and more durable than wire we have built with in the past,” said Operations Manager Jeremy Kaiser.

Glad to work with all the linemen every day.  Even if they are a little tough on us Engineers sometimes.

This was a good experience when I did it long ago.  If you know a high school age kid, you should encourage them to attend.

Join instructor, Bob Miller, in dance lessons. Swing basics will include eastern swing and triple time swing that will provide students with a fun aerobic activity.  This is a good entry-level swing class to dancing, as the instruction is paced according to the abilities of the students.  The students will dance to swing, country, jazz, blues, etc.  The basics of salsa are taught with a basic that lends itself to other dances.  Most will be partner dancing, but there will be lots of free-style moves taught also.  The salsa music is energentic and fun, and when the music slows down a bit, you will learn a cha cha.  Singles are welcome and partner rotations are encouraged for both types of dance!  Harmon Park Activity Center Community Rooms.

Great food. The Calzones are huge, definitely for two or more people. Service can be a little slow, so give yourself plenty of time.

The Mexican food here is very authentic. They have a lot of really neat entrees as well as the traditional fare that you would expect from a Mexican Restaurant. The lunch menu is really reasonably priced and the food is delicious. The waiters, despite the lack of fluent English, provide quick and excellent service. I've never been disappointed going here. If I had to make one complaint, it would probably be the cramped parking, but it is well worth it for the delicious food at great prices.

It is about what you would expect from a fast food restaurant by the interstate. They keep the place relatively clean. It is the same quality of food from other Wendy's.
