Hi Mark, you can add that the pipelines are buried in a trench, covered with enough mud and then a layer of gravel rocks that even a large ship dragging it's anchor could not reach the pipe, so laying the explosives would have required either advanced underwater mining equipment or weeks of labour just to remove that cover.

Mark, you are absolutely the best. I love both you and Alexander Mercuris. However, I really wish that Alexander had your internal editor. You are able to present so much information so incisively. Not my strong point, either, which is probably why I admire it so much.

I could use all that mud, I support you, Mark!



Beavers, whether furry or made bald, are famously busy, and they turn their talents to reengineering the landscape as few other animals or men can. When sites are available, beavers burrow in the banks of rivers and lakes. But they also transform less suitable habitats by building dams. Felling and gnawing trees with their strong teeth and powerful jaws, they create massive log, branch, and mud structures to block streams and turn fields and forests into the large ponds that beavers love. And we men, even gay, love them fot that. Let us not beat about the bush or desert, or dessert!

Beavers make wonderful employees, friends and family members, but an out-of-balance Beaver tends to relate only on the hard-side of love and relationships, which puts them at risk for losing at love. Soft-sided traits need to be incorporated into their relationships.

Beaver personalities are very creative. They desire to solve everything and desire to take their time and do it right. Beavers do not like sudden changes, they need to stick to the described plan and instructions, and often need reassurance. There is nothing better than a beaver with an attitude! In conclusion, these lovely, truly adored creatures are very busy or hard-working. Come on, Freedom Convoy truckers and U Haulers out there, let us honk for them, let us toast to BEAVERAGE!
