With little on the line, two Napanee Express junior fastball teams delivered promising performances this weekend. As a result of their play at Ontario eliminations in Owen Sound, the North Key Express and the Shoeless Joe's Express will enter the national under-23 championship in Napanee next month feeling optimistic. The defending national champion North Key Express bounced back from a loss in their opener to reach the final, where Napanee lost 6-1 to the reigning elimination champion Owen Sound Selects on Sunday. The Shoeless Joe's Express, in the nationals as the host team, went 3-2 on the weekend and finished sixth at the 14-team event. The North Key Express, of course, will be in the spotlight Aug. 8 to 14 at the Napanee Fairgrounds. The elimination tune-up showed the players and the coaches that the team is ready to compete against all the top squads. Dave Kerr, who coaches the team with Joe Lewis. Napanee won five in a row after the Friday night setback, setting up a confrontation with Owen Sound in the elimination final for the second year in a row.
The championship game really was an exhibition for both teams. Two national berths were up for grabs for the rest of the field and they were secured by undefeated Owen Sound and the Linwood Chiefs, who lost 5-0 against North Key earlier Sunday in a semifinal. Owen Sound won bronze last year at nationals. Kerr and Lewis were pleased with all three of the team's pitchers — Ian Wallwork, ace Joran Graham and Cory Alkerton. Graham also swung a hot bat, belting three home runs. Left fielder Luke MacDonald was the other big hitter for the defending champs. Coaches with the Shoeless Joe's Express felt much the same way. The team's only two losses were against the host Owen Sound squads. One highlight was a 10-3 win over the reigning Canadian midget champion Walkerton Southwestern Jays. The Express also beat the Jarvis Juniors and Freelton. Matt Hannwich and Jordan Wrightly did the pitching for Napanee. Fellow pitcher Kyle Arsenault was sidelined because of work commitments. The Shoeless Joe's Express, MacDonald said, relied on their speed to make things difficult on opposing defences. Meanwhile, the Sydenham Cyclones went two-and-out, falling 15-6 to Linwood and 8-2 against the Newmarket Stingers. Both Napanee teams will continue playing a Loughborough League schedule in July. Later this month, they'll travel to Ottawa for a tournament.
The rock may shatter if explosives are used for mining. Blocks of marble are mined and extracted with channeling machines, which cut grooves and holes in the rock. Miners outline a block of marble with rows of grooves and holes. They then drive wedges into the openings and separate the block from the surrounding rock. The blocks are then cut with saws to the desired s! Iranians, Greeks, Indians and Chinese. Italian artist Michelangelo used marble from Carrara , Italy , in a number of sculptures and statues. It is soft and is easy to carve or cut into shapes, making it the preferable choice for making statues. It is found in Canada , Italy , Germany , Spain , India and China . The best stocks of marbles in the United States come from the state of Vermont, which extracts large quantities. Other states important as marble producers are Massachusetts, Maryland , Tennessee , Alabama , Georgia , Missouri , California , Colorado , and Arizona.

I used to love doing jigsaw puzzles. The nice thing about jigsaw puzzles is that the whole family can participate. Puzzles helped me get through high school and college. It sometimes helped to take a break and figure out the puzzles. Then go back and covered the studying. I have many puzzles I have done over the years which I hang on my walls each time i move I get a new one. Wow, great lens and nice resouces. I can't do normal puzzles now because of my neck but these look great. Thank you for introducing me to them. I like the idea of the challenge of a jigsaw puzzle and usually can't pass by one that's set up without stopping to find a few pieces. I can't imagine the space it would take to work on your 24,000 piece monster puzzle, whew! I didn't know there are free on line jigsaw puzzles to work, technology is a wonder!
I love jigsaw puzzles. I like to make them, too. I do, especially during the winter months with my kids. There's often a work-in-progress jigsaw puzzle spread out on our dining room table (does anyone actually use their dining room for dining?) but I haven't tried working an online puzzle. I love puzzle just never enough time. You've discovered my weakness! That's really HUGE ! I don't usually do jigsaw, but want to try that one! Even if I had the kids and Dave and I working on the 32,000 piece puzzle I think that it would take us forever to put that jigsaw puzzle together. LiteraryMind: Thank you so much for stopping by my online jigsaw puzzle article so quickly after it was published. I find jigsaw puzzles very relaxing. I used to keep it set up on a board on my coffee table and would pop in a few pieces whenever I went by. I haven't lately-- but when I do, I find it relaxing -- sometimes frustrating but in a relaxing way. Great idea for a lens.
