Iceland, an island of fire and ice, a land of geysers, volcanoes and lava deserts, remote and desolate, yet full of breathtaking natural beauty. The spectacle of numerous Solfatara formations ranges from fascinating bubbling mud holes to dramatic crevices that spew out hot steam. The sulphur laden mud pools can reach a temperature of up to 100 degrees Celsius. The surrounding terrain can suddenly give way, therefore the area can be extremely dangerous and should be approached with great caution. Although a tourist destination, Námaskard is far from overcrowded. This is most likely due to the ever present and highly obtrusive odor of sulphur expelled by its mud holes. The Námaskard region is not only one of the hottest areas of the island, it also forms the geological border between Europe and North America known as The Mid Atlantic Ridge. The scenery is indeed captivating and surreal and it is hardly surprising that countless myths and legends have been created on the island. Rising from the depths of the earth, the foul-smelling vapors of the Solfatara Fields and the volcanic surroundings of Námaskard probably once stimulated the imagination of the Vikings, Iceland’s original inhabitants. Just outside the small town of Grindavik, near the capital of Reykjavik, a more down to earth though sensual ritual takes place. The Blue Lagoon is one of the most popular bathing areas on the island. Surrounded by lava, the water of this picturesque lake is a constant 38 degrees

27 Jun 11 The Greatest Beer Pong Table In Construction 2

Danby model DTT-420W 2-speed twin tub washing machine in action. This type of agitation was developed and patented (and seemingly licensed out) by GE. Twin tub washers were all the rage from the early 60’s to the early 80’s and a number of manufacturers made them. Danby is now the lone maker of twin tubs in North America. Of course, the machine is made in China – where else? This particular one was made in 2007 and I acquired it second-hand. Danby made some minor revisions later on that saw the wash tub door hinged on like the spinner door. It isn’t heavy and washes clothes very well. The spinner spins at a whopping 1600 RPM. Most top-load machines spin at less than 1000 RPM. It’ll wash up to 10 lbs. at once. The tub is actually bigger than you think. The target market for this machine is apartments, condos with no connections, country houses, students, dorms and the like. If you despise doing laundry, this is not the machine for you as you manually have to switch the cycles and such. It’s a different way of doing things but it doesn’t take long and works very well.
