    I think the Welding idea on Monday morning August 21st has Budding Possibilities..... Here's a Link Mentions welding glass:: How to Tell If Your Eclipse Glasses or Handheld Solar Viewers Are Safe What to Avoid Ordinary sunglasses (or multiple pairs of sunglasses), neutral density or polarizing filters (such as those made for camera lenses), smoked glass, photographic or X-ray film (unexposed, exposed, or developed), "space blankets," potato-chip bags, DVDs, and any other materials you may have heard about for solar viewing are not safe. In some cases these homemade filters may seem like they dim the Sun to a comfortable level, but that doesn't mean they do so across the whole electromagnetic spectrum. While you're enjoying a "comfortable" view of the "dim" Sun, solar infrared radiation could be cooking your retinas. And you wouldn't know till later, because your retinas don't have pain receptors. Only after the eclipse, when you notice blind spots or other vision problems, would you realize you'd made a catastrophic mistake. What about welding filters? The only ones that are safe for direct viewing of the Sun with your eyes are those of Shade 12 or higher. These are much darker than the filters used for most kinds of welding. If you have an old welder's helmet around the house and are thinking of using it to view the Sun, make sure you know the filter's shade number. If it's less than 12 (and it probably is), don't even think about using it to look at the Sun. Many people find the Sun too bright even in a Shade 12 filter, and some find the Sun too dim in a Shade 14 filter — but Shade 13 filters are uncommon and can be hard to find. In any case, welding filters generally give a sickly green image of the Sun, whereas special-purpose solar viewers give a white, yellow, or orange image, which is much more pleasing and natural. If you really want to get a welding filter, we recommend that you buy it from a welding supply company; we've heard reports of people ordering "Shade 14" welding goggles from random online stores and receiving much lighter filters than they were promised. Our Reputable Vendors of Solar Filters & Viewers page doesn't list any suppliers of welder's filters, only suppliers of filters made exclusively for viewing the Sun.

    Just a heads up; Amazon has issued a recall on some solar eclipse glasses Retailer warns buyers of some unverified glasses not to use them. Amazon said it issued the recall over concerns with the quality of the glasses.https://www.cnet.com/news/amazon-reportedly-issues-recall-on-some-solar-eclipse-glasses/ "Safety is among our highest priorities. Out of an abundance of caution, we have proactively reached out to customers and provided refunds for eclipse glasses that may not comply with industry standards," Amazon said in a statement. " We want customers to buy with confidence anytime they make a purchase on Amazon.com and eclipse glasses sold on Amazon.com are required to comply with the relevant ISO standard." Only glasses that meet the international ISO 12312-2 standard are safe to use during the eclipse. Look for that number on your glasses to be sure.

    This could describe a not so positive review for an Escort Agency.😳
  6. I apologize for the wording; "the eight hate Groups". and should used the phrase---> " the targeting of these Groups" pertaining to the Flier/Poster that was distributed by the so-called “Unite The Right” rally organizer white nationalist Jason Kessler. My emphases was to link to the flags. As I now look at the videos that surfaced from the March in Charlottesville & seeing the many flags that promote the various white supremacy movements.

  8. The following is a link that shows a flier/poster that was distributed before the August 12th Charlottesville “Unite the Right” rally, was derived from Benjamin Franklin’s famous “Join, or Die” cartoon. The poster succeeded in drawing out a diversity of far-right groups. The Poster shows the cut up Snake and depicts the targeting of these Groups that were spotted in Charlottesville. The link also goes into depth, shows the various Flags and there meaning. Bottom line is; These are not "very fine people"

    Also if you except the bait & switch there is a higher likelihood of an up-sale....
