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.

Avenue of Lights going on now

1 year, 5 months ago from QSFA

Price per vehicle is $9

In the past fourteen years since the gates of Moorman-Wavering Park opened to reveal the magic of the Christmas season, over a million guests have enjoyed the drive through the Avenue of Lights.

Volunteers work year round to not only update the beautiful displays you have seen in past trips through the Avenue of Lights, but more than 10,000 volunteer hours go into the planning and building of new displays to make certain each year visitors will see a new show!  Members of the Avenue’s board visit vendors and outdoor light displays all over the nation looking for new ideas and better ways to bring displays to life!  The electronic wizardry utilized by the Avenue of Lights’ volunteer crew, has created what many believe is the “most animated Christmas Park in the Midwest!”

Two years ago when volunteers returned from the Annual Christmas Convention in Tennessee with a trailer load of new displays, the Park ushered in the largest technology upgrade in the history of the event.  Imagine the changes you’ll experience this year as TWO SEMI-TRAILER loads of displays have arrived from vendors all over the United States.  Drive slowly to catch all the animated action of more than 150 displays in Moorman-Wavering Park.  Along the two-mile loop, pass through FOUR animated tunnels, sing along with an amazing Matrix Board displaying all new Christmas tunes and forty trees dancing to the Christmas beat, a young girl catching snowflakes on her tongue, Old Man Winter blowing a beautiful white blanket across the Park, Toasty the Snowman warming up next to the campfire and another snowman sledding down the hill with a cute little passenger on his back.  Santa will be showing off his shiny new fire truck, a happy family find the house of their dreams just in time for Christmas, and see the area’s tallest Christmas Tree towering 50 feet in the air, dazzling guests with unique colorations and animation. Several other new surprises will join your previous favorites (including Scottie the Skating Caterpillar, of course).  In all, nearly 400 pieces, secured by more than 800 stakes and nearly 6 miles of guy wire, connected by more than a mile of extension cords and powered by nearly 150 controllers and electric motors will help make this year’s Avenue of Lights, the biggest, brightest and most animated yet!

Whether you’ve been our guest in past years or you’re making the breathtaking drive for the first time, create a wonderful Christmas memory for your entire family this year at the Avenue of Lights.  Open nightly in Moorman-Wavering Park from 6-9:30, Thanksgiving Day through New Year’s.  Admission is $9 per vehicle.  No vehicles larger than 15 passenger vans will be permitted to avoid damage to park roads.
