Overseas Removals

There are many curiosities in life and I live with one. My flatmate moved from Italy to live in the UK. How can that work? What possibly would attract somebody to Overseas Removals from sunny skies in Italy to the grey skies of the UK! It cannot be the food, it cannot be the wine and it is most definitely not the weather. So what? Apparently he moved for the women!

Now when I picture an Italian woman, I imagine a beautiful goddess with long wavy black hair and dark skin! She is stylish, elegant and powerful. Granted she may one day turn into a large round mama, but don't all women? However my flatmate tells me that I could not be more wrong. He says that these type of Italina women are few and far between and practically unobtainable to most "normal" men. He also says that British women are far more beautiful and much more fun!

According to Fabio, my flatmate, who seems to have studied the topic at great length, the best women in the world are British. They are confident, outgoing and love to party. They have their own unique dressing style and don't take life too seriously. Apparently the only down side is that they cannot cook but who wants to be chained to the kitchen all day? Its a great excuse to eat out anyway.

So if Fabio is correct about British women, why is he not interested in me? I am British, funny, pretty and earn well. So what could be the problem? I am not entirely sure but I do intend to find out. Watch this space!

Federal court hears appeal on W.Va. valley fills

A lawyer for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers told a federal appeals court Tuesday that the agency met all the legal requirements for issuing permits to a coal company to fill valleys with rubble from blasting the tops off of several West Virginia mountains, a mining practice called mountaintop removal.

An attorney for an environmental group disagreed, arguing that a federal judge correctly ruled that the corps failed to adequately assess possible environmental damage before issuing so-called valley fill permits to four mines operated by subsidiaries of Richmond, Va.-based Massey Energy.

The corps and the coal companies are appealing U.S. District Judge Robert C. Chambers' 2007 ruling to the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. A three-judge panel heard from both sides during a 75-minute hearing. The court usually takes several weeks to rule.

The lawsuit was filed by the Ohio Valley Environmental Coalition and two other environmental groups, which said the corps should have performed more extensive environmental reviews before issuing permits allowing Massey to fill valleys with dirt, rocks and other material blasted from mountaintops to expose coal seams.

Joe Lovett, an attorney for the environmental groups, said the permits allowed 23 valley fills and affected 12 miles of streams. He said the corps was required to conduct both a structural analysis _ which he described as "a snapshot" _ and a functional analysis of how streams would be affected over time. The corps conducted only the former, Lovett said.

"The corps simply failed in its duty to assess function," Lovett said.

Corps attorney Michael Gray countered that the structural analysis provided all the information that was needed to determine whether a permit should be issued. He said the corps was allowed to rely on its "best professional judgment" because it lacked funding to conduct the functional analysis.

Judge M. Blane Michael seemed unswayed by that argument, telling Gray the lack of money "does not give you a pass."

The two sides also disagreed on whether the corps properly assessed the cumulative effect of the valley fills. Gray said the corps concluded that the cumulative effect would be insignificant, but Lovett argued that there was no evidence in the record to support such a conclusion.

Gray also said much of the regulation sought by the plaintiffs falls under state mining laws. Rejecting the permits would have amounted to a veto of the state's authority, he said.

"The corps has to be very careful how it exercises its jurisdiction when you have this extensive state overlay," he said.

Lovett said mining laws do not affect the corps' Clean Water Act authority.

Product Reviews :: Got Twins? The BOB Revolution Duallie Stroller Advantage

Having twins is a magical experience; two little people who depend on you for everything. Having twins is rare, and the down side is that you have to buy two of everything. Two cribs, two wardrobes, two high chairs, two car seats and even two strollers. When considering strollers, you should consider the BOB Revolution Duallie Stroller. You only need to buy one, because its built to seat two.

Its Cheaper

Rather than having to shell out the money to purchase two entire strollers to connect together, or to have to worry about having a second person with you always in order to push the second stroller, you only have to purchase one. Of course, the cost of a Duallie stroller is higher than a single BOB stroller, but it is nowhere near the cost of two individual ones. If you wanted a BOB Revolution SE Duallie, it is going to cost you around $660. The Revolution CE actually does not have a Duallie version so if you are looking for something a little bit less expensive than that, the Sports Utility version of the BOB Duallie is just $520.

Its Easy to Use

The BOB Revolution Duallie Stroller is designed to be really easy to use. There are two back wheels and one front wheel, so although it is wider because of the two seats, it is just as maneuverable as the single seat option. The front wheel pivots and this means you can take really sharp turns with minimal effort. Compare that to most other double strollers where there are two wheels on the front.

Its Convenient and Portable

The BOB Revolution Duallie Stroller is very convenient to use. A foot brake allows you to lock the wheels so your precious twins wont roll away accidentally if you need to stop on an incline. The BOB Revolution Duallie Stroller is designed to go with you anywhere, even if that means you need to drive somewhere before using it. It folds down almost flat and the wheels come off to make it fold down even smaller. This allows you to put it in the trunk or strap it to the roof of a sports utility vehicle so that you can take it with you camping or on vacation quite easily.


The BOB Revolution strollers come with a one year warranty on the small parts and the fabric and a five year warranty on the frame. It is recommended that you dont start using it for your child until they are at least eight weeks of age and can hold their head up. However, it has been known that you can put a younger child in there as long as you have proper neck support for them. It can hold children up to 100 pounds combined between the two. You dont have to use it for twins and can use it for two children who are different ages as long as the weight restrictions are followed. Owning a BOB Revolution Duallie Stroller can be a lovely addition to your baby gear.

Inside Facts About Good Auto Car Seat Covers by Rudy Silva

Having a car requires auto car seat covers. That is, if you care about your investment. A car is one of the most expensive possession you can have, regardless if it is brand new or second hand. Having your own car saves you a lot of time and stress normally associated with commuting.

One way of protecting your car is by providing it with auto seat covers. The car seat covers protect the car seat from elements that may contribute to deterioration of the materials used in making the car seat.

While the appearance of your car seat can be stunning, it is wise not to show them off as they are, once you have bought the car from your dealer. Among the elements that can harm your auto seat is the sun.

The scorching heat of the sun is very damaging. Its UV rays can penetrate the windshields and body of your car. Even if your car is exposed to the heat for a short time, it can still damage your car, as heat is everywhere during the day. Unless you park your car in a garage, it is always exposed to outside elements.

If your original car seats covers are made of leather they will absorb the suns heat. Over time this leather will tend to fade or crack. If you sit on this hot leather you will need time to adjust to the heat. Using a car seat cover made of cloth or other cloth like material can protect your leather and make it more comfortable, when you sit on the hot seat.

Even the extreme cold of winter can damage your car seat little by little. Again with leather, it will absorb the cold and make it uncomfortable to sit on it.

Remember that the car seats can be vulnerable to damage and deterioration despite their being manufactured by professionals. The upholstery may break, exposing the cushion inside.

In addition, the seat covers can exude the beauty of your car interior. You dont have to worry about the style and design of the seat covers because they are really stylish and customizable. You can even choose the material you want for the car seat covers.

There are Hawaiian, neoprene, leather, camouflage, and vinyl seat covers. Other choices are corvette, mossy oak and saddleman seat covers.

You can have your new seat covers professionally installed or you can put them on yourself. If you have purchased custom fit seat covers, then they will fit just right and go on easily. But if you have bought generic seat covers, you have to make adjustments in various places so that they fit right.
