Back Once Again

Over the past 20 years there has been a problem with the power lines that feed off a transformer behind my house.  About 4 times a year, usually during or shortly after a storm, they come out and reset it and some times replace the transformer.  Two days ago they again returned only this time there were three trucks driving around the neighborhood looking at the lines and watching the guy in the bucket work.  Next storm I am sure they will be back again.

The Palm Scan

As you become older the most frequently occurring  social events in your life are visits to Doctor(s), Lab Work, the Hospital and an occasional highpoint of a funeral.  A couple of days ago I had to have Lab work done and after supplying those people with insurance cards, driver license, and a good part of my life history (which they already had in their computer) they wanted me to do a palm scan.  The scanner is a small block of plastic you put your palm over and it takes a high resolution infrared photo of the vein pattern just under the skin. The person taking the scan assured me it would just be used in the hospital computers and no where else (right).  She said should I come into the hospital unconscious now they can take another palm scan to ID me (assuming my right hand isn't cut off) and get me the right treatment.  More Bull Shit.  Indeed it is the mark of the beast;

If anyone worships the beast and its image and receives his mark on the forehead or on their hand, they, too, will drink of the wine of God's fury, which has been poured full strength into the cup of his wrath. They will be tormented with burning sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and of the Lamb

The Town Council SRO discussion

The minutes of November and December 2013 Mayor and Council meeting have been posted on the town website.  On my sidebar is the link to the Town Of Delmar and if you click on their "meeting minutes link" it will take you to a selection of Commissions and Council minutes.  Which makes these minutes interesting is the SRO (School cop) for the school discussion is in them.  It also show that Dr, Ring runs the show in this town.

Ocean dunes in state parks are closed to sledding, snowboarding

REHOBOTH BEACH (Jan. 28, 2014) – With several snow storms under our belts and more to come, DNREC’s Division of Parks and Recreation is asking the public to help protect the dunes in Delaware’s ocean parks by reminding residents and visitors that dunes should not be used for sledding or snowboarding.

Dunes contain fragile habitat and provide protection for the beaches and the communities that border them. Recent storms have already caused some damage this winter.

Except for marked crossings, dunes are closed year-round to pedestrian traffic and activities in Cape Henlopen and Delaware Seashore state parks

Pre-Valentine Day Message

Altho I have problems with State Farm at Delmar Commons I will give them points for the creativity they have in keeping their office decorated.

Another Snow

Another 12 degree winter wonderland greeted us this morning. The town public works employees were out about 4 AM or so  plowing the streets.  I broke down and paid two guys to shovel my sidewalks, it was cheaper than a heartattack.

Mid-Atlantic Fasteners

 Mid-Atlantic Fasteners, a subsidiary of Carlson Industries recently took occupancy of a newly built 8,000 SF building in Delmar, DE. It is located on Route 13 north of Delmar adjacent to the FurnitureLand Distribution Center. Mid-Atlantic Fasteners is pleased to be able to broaden their service by offering a regional location for their customers across Delmarva. They were previously located in the Northwood Industrial Park in Salisbury, MD. 

Founded in 1949, Mid-Atlantic Fasteners is one of the leading companies that provides a range of products for the industrial and construction industries. The company provides a range of products that include pneumatic and cordless nailers, screw systems, pneumatic staplers, nails, staples, screws, bolts, nuts and washers, generators, and air compressors and accessories. It offers additional products, such as framing hardware, power tools, saw blades, drill bits, adhesives, caulk guns and foam tools. Mid-Atlantic Fasteners also provides ladders, safety supplies, bags, belts, levels and hand tools. The company offers interior packaging, carton marking, strapping, tying, palletizing, unitizing and stretch wrapping solutions. It also provides installation and repair services. Mid-Atlantic Fasteners maintains more than 20 locations in the East coast. The company is a part of Carlson Holdings/Systems.
Carlson Systems is a leading distributor of the most recognized brands of construction and packaging machines, tools and supplies in the industry. The company has evolved over the past 66 years to encompass over 60 locations in the United States and Mexico.

This success story had its humble beginning in Omaha, Nebraska, when in 1947, Carl and Julia Carlson founded Carlson Stapler and Supply with nothing more than a $350 cash investment, a used file cabinet, and their own enthusiasm.

In the decades that followed, the company added to its product line and expanded its territory throughout the Midwest, eventually adding southwestern locations as well. The company name was simplified to Carlson Systems, but kept the familiar CSS logo and the founders© philosophy to provide the highest quality products along with outstanding service and support to our customers.
In 2006, Carlson Systems was joined by Mid-Atlantic Fasteners. Sharing a similar beginning, Mid-Atlantic Fasteners was established out of a garage in Baltimore, MD just after World War II as a Duo-Fast distributor. Most of their early customers were upholstery shops, furniture manufacturers and millwork companies. Primarily serving the mid-Atlantic region of the east coast, the business grew over the years and began selling competitive lines, which allowed them to expand into new markets with new customers.

Another acquisition occurred in 2013 with the addition of Western Tool Supply Company. Western Tool Supply was founded in 1982, with its headquarters in Salem, Oregon. The addition of Western Tool Supply expanded Carlson System©s presence in the northwestern U.S. The companies were a good fit because, like Carlson Systems, Western Tool Supply had a strong devotion to customer satisfaction through breadth of product, product expertise, great order fulfillment, with the added benefit of tool and equipment repair service.
