Friendship book

Friendship books are small booklets made by stapling paper together, or are sometimes just sheets or strips of paper. They are decorated and the person who starts the book writes their name and address as the first person sending the book. People include a list of interests as well; the FB is passed around from penpal to penpal, can also become a way for one to meet new penpals. Most people hope to see the book again once it is full so they add their return address to the back cover of the book too, or inscribe "Return to Sender" on it. People sometimes make FBs for someone else rather than themselves, in which case they write the name and address of the recipient on the front/at the top; some people find friendship books fun because you can see where they have been in a trail back to the original sender/recipient. The German friendship books are kept, not sent away. Access is considered more intimate; the information given about oneself includes quotations and worldly wisdom. They are more like shared journals between two best friends or a couple and are kept at one of their houses.

Friendship books that require entrants to make drawings, use stickers or magazine photographs are known as "deco" friendship books or just "decos". Each entrant in the "deco" must use one full page to express themselves. Glitter, sequins and other scrapbooking supplies are used in "decos." Despite the artistic expressions used in these types of friendship books, the basic rules of passing the friendship book to person to person is the same. When a'friendship book' is only one page, it's called a'friendship sheet.' If the page is small, like the size of a postcard, or smaller, it's called a'cram.' Friendship books that have a musical theme, where you have to add lyrics to your entry, are called "lyrix" or "lyrics sheets". Slams are friendship books that include a theme of questions, either "Sign if you did/like the following", "What is your favorite" or other similar questions; these include one page as a "sign in", several pages of questions, a "sign out" or "shout out" page at the end. Slams can be regular.

They are small like a standard friendship book. They have a "sign-in" page where you put your label or name each page will contain a question which you answer and the signer would write the appropriate response. At the end there is a sign-out page as well where it's dated. Slams can be "sign if" slams; these are handled in a number of ways. Crams are like friendship sheets or book; the idea is to "cram" as many addresses into the provided space. As the name implies, friendship sheets are nearly the same as friendship books, but they are made on a single sheet of paper or stationery. Decos are similar to FBs, but are larger in size; the cover is decorated with interesting materials like magazine pictures, rubber stamps, decorative papers, other embellishments. Each person who signs decorates a full page in the book. Sometimes the book has a theme, for example cats; each person decorates their page following the theme. As with FBs, when these are full, they are sent home to the person for. Lyrix are much like decos except.

Some are more plain with the words written in them, others are as artistic as decos with pictures and other ornamental adornments. Quotes are like Lyrics; these can be themed, such as Brad Pitt movie quotes. Quotes can be plain decorative. Pen pal Autograph book

Orr grew up and attended high school in Houston, Texas, he attended Stanford University where he earned his Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering in 1969. While at Stanford, he studied abroad at Imperial College in London and was named Rotary Undergraduate Scholar. In 1969, he became a graduate student of chemical engineering at the University of Minnesota department of chemical engineering and materials science under doctoral advisor L. E. Scriven, he left for two years, 1970-1972, to serve in the U. S. Public Health Service, his thesis was published in 1976 with the title, "Numerical Simulation of Viscous Flow with a Free Surface".

In 1991 he became Chair of the Department of Petroleum Engineering, he was the Founding Director of two energy and conservation projects: the Global Climate and Energy Project in 2002 and the Precourt Institute for Energy in 2009. He became Professor Emeritus in 2014. Along with the mentioned time with the Public Health Service, Orr joined the United States Department of Energy as Under Secretary for Science and Energy under President Barack Obama and Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz in 2014, where he remained until January 2017.

In this role, he served as the principal advisor on energy and science initiatives and clean energy technologies in general. He was tasked with integrating the basic science, applied research and technology development and deployment occurring across the various divisions of the U. S. Department of Energy. Part of this effort included oversight of the office of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability, Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, Nuclear Energy, Science, which included 13 national laboratories. Orr has authored more than 100 journal articles describing significant advances in flow in porous media, enhanced oil recovery, geological CO2 storage, including: M. Blunt, F. J. Fayers, F. M. Orr "Carbon dioxide in enhanced oil recovery", Energy Conversion and Management, 34, 1042. R. Juanes, E. J. Spiteri, F. M. Orr, M. J.

Hill City, Idaho

Hill City is an unincorporated community in southwestern Camas County, United States. It lies at the intersection of U. S. Route 20 with Mink and Swamp Roads and Trader Lane, 14 miles west-southwest of Fairfield, the county seat. Hill City was named for the Bennet Mountain Hills, located nearby, in 1911, Hill City became the a major station on the Oregon Short Line Railroad. From Hill City and the surrounding Camas Prairie, astonishing numbers of sheep were shipped. At one time, more sheep were shipped from Hill City than anywhere else in the world. There were many grain elevators in the area. There is a historic saloon, reopened in 2013, they sell basic food and local crafts. The elevation of Hill City is 5090 feet above sea level.

Lake Muhikap

Lake Mohicap is one of the seven lakes of San Pablo City, in the province of Laguna, Philippines. The lake, located in Brgy. San Buenaventura, has an area of 14.5 hectares and is one of the main suppliers of water in the city. The waters of San Pablo Lakes provide a generous source of tilapia for suburbs; the legend of Lake Mohicap is quite similar to those of Lakes Yambo to the east. A couple had a sickly daughter named Munica, they prayed to God for her health, they promised to do anything in exchange, to which God granted their prayer on condition that Munica must not set foot on soil. She thus grew up to be healthy and industrious. One day while her parents were away, Munica was sewing a dress; the ball of thread she was using fell on the ground and when she tried to retrieve it, she fainted and fell. She sank with the entire neighbourhood, a lagoon was formed; this body of water was called Mohicap, derived from the unfortunate girl's name, mahikap, which means industrious in the local dialect of Tagalog.
