I've been back to Hawaii twice--once in 2008 and again in 2012. Visited the other main islands on those trips with only minimal time on Oahu. (From the link I posted, at the top is a line with "Collections > Hawaii"; the "Hawaii" can be clicked to get to the other photos, if anyone is interested.)
We have panhandlers at street corners, standing on the separator islands. Some have signs so small they can't be read. I just ignore them. I like to think I'm generous, but I choose where I give my money carefully.
Cop #6: I probably would answer that I don't know how fast I was going. The speedometer in my Mustang works OK but it's set back so far in the dash that in daytime I can't read it at all. I gauge my speed by what the other cars around me are doing and how the engine sounds. So far it has worked.
I had an external drive failure a few years ago and used a data recovery company to get the information back. They copied the information to a new drive and sent it back to me. It wasn't cheap, but I did get all the data back--none was lost. It was worth the money to me.
I read somewhere that during the recycle period, all the stalk and blossom actually are formed and are just wound up inside the bulb. When the bulb is watered, it all starts to unwind and that results in the incredible apparent rate of growth.
