Satellite Data is extrapolated based on well known and mathmatically quantifiable conversion formulas not some random application of guesses and adjustments done to surface temps which, against all statistical odds, happens overwhelming in one direction.

I tell them I wired the money and then give them a fake number to claim it. Then when they contact me, I tell them I turned two numbers around and give them another fake number. Love jacking with them. Sent one into a strip club in London to collect the money I owed him since I would was in town and would be there.

So would you agree that Taylor's article is misleading? While you reserve judgment on whether total polar ice has reduced for the perfectly valid reason that you want modeling to be better verified, he looks only at 2D polar ice extent and tells readers that Global Warming Not Causing Any Polar Ice Retreat. He knows full well that ice extent is not the full story. (And he probably knows full well…

I doubt you'll see the police do much unless real money is lost. You have to get a warrant to trace the #. Then you're likely across state lines or countries and all they can do is report to another police dept to take investigate and care of it. And if no money has been lost there's not exactly a big payoff for them to investigate. I'm not sure attempted theft is even a crime.

Friends of the Log Cabins Association Capital Campaign

2 years, 5 months ago by Paige Traeder

There is still time to donate to re-build the Log Cabin Village on Quinsippi Island

 The Friends of the Log Cabins Association, a 501c3 charitable organization, is seeking donations to help restore the Log Cabins on Quinsippi Island.  The coming year's goal is to re-build the Clat Adams Cabin, which was disassembled last year due to advanced deterioration.  Capital Fundraising Campaign honorary co-chairs Laura Kent Donahue and Chuck Scholz encourages everyone to help by donating monies to save these valuable historic structures, originally brought to Quinsippi Island in the late 60's,  to preserve them for current and future generations to "reflect a bit from when we came."  

The first fundraising mailing, sent out in November, included an option for the donor to have an inscribed Brick in a Memorial Plaza to be installed around the Kiosk in the village.   If you didn't receive the letter, the Donation Form is also located on the web site at www.logcabinvillagequincyil.com. Mail tax deductible donations to: Friends of the Log Cabins, P.O. Box 3122, Quincy, IL 62305. 

The Friends have created a Face Book page: FriendsOfTheLogCabinVillageQuincyIl to showcase the village and provides information on events and restoration activities.  Visitors can learn what is happening and how they can help, by either joining the Friends, volunteering, or donating to help save, restore, preserve and utilize these historic 1800's structures. 

In 1968, the Lincoln-era Log Cabin Village, referred to as "Adams Landing", was created by the Quinsippi Heritage Foundation under the auspices of the Chamber of Commerce and the Quincy Park District.  In addition to the Chamber and Park District, several service clubs (Rotary, Kiwanis, Lions and Knights of Columbus) were involved in re-locating these historic 1800's log cabins and other structures from locations throughout Adams and Pike County.  Structures were located, disassembled, moved and reassembled on Quinsippi Island in a village setting as part of the Quinsippi Island Entertainment complex designed to encourage Tourism to the area.  The Entertainment complex folded in the 70's and over the years the village fell into disuse, was forgotten and the structures left to deteriorate.  The Friends of the Log Cabins formed in 2007 with a mission to bring renewed life to the village, restore the 1800's historic structures and host activities, so current and future generations can learn how pioneers, who settled in this area, use to live in the 1800's.  An annual Frontier Settlement Day is held the second Saturday in September in addition to open houses, scheduled tours, weddings and private events.  Since they are located in Quinsippi Island Park, the village is open year round to view these historic structures from the outside.  As funds are raised, in addition to fully restoring and preserving each structure, plans are to add signage and improved paths, so visitors now and into the future can enjoy seeing these historic structures and learn about the families, who settled the area, built these cabins and lived in them.
