About the pics..
If you see pictures that belong to you - don't get pissy and complain to google. Just tell me, and I'll either remove them immediately or give you credit and a link - whichever you prefer.

Visible are snow peaked mountains near and far, tremendous cliffs, distant plateaus, the tops of clouds, and a dark blue sky. Mt. Everest stands 8.85 kilometers above sea level, roughly the maximum height reached by international airplane flights, but much less than the 300 kilometers achieved by a space shuttle. Hundreds of people have tried and failed to climb the behemoth by foot, a feat first accomplished successfully in 1953. About 1000 people have now made it to the summit. Roddy Mackenzie, who climbed the mountain in 1989, captured this image.
Mt. Everest lies in the Himalayan mountains in the country of Nepal. In the native language of Nepal, the mountain's name is "Sagarmatha" which means "forehead of the sky."
Here we have a bucket wheel excavator.
Yowsers, that sucker is big!
It's 315 ft high and weighs 13,500 tons!
This is a caterpillar D8R Dozer.
It's pretty big too.
It weighs 32 tons, a nice little piece of machinery.
But wait! Is that a bulldozer I see sticking out of there?
Here's a closer look - with captions.
Holy crap! Now what?
It's heavy, it's high, and it's stuck!
So, now what?
I wonder if one of these guys is going to get fired.
You get a really big crane and pull it out, that's what.
I wish there was a picture of that crane... but there isn't.
Easy does it...
Awww... that looks really kinda sad!
He's still growing, according to German breeder Hans Wagner (above), whose hair-raising angora hare was the highlight of a recent rabbit fair in Berlin.
On all paws, German Giant, named for the world's largest rabbit breed, stands about 17 inches tall. And standing on his hind feet, he's more than three feet tall.
German Giant, one of the biggest bunnies on the face of the planet, tips the scales at 17 pounds - almost seven pounds more than the average rabbit of his breed.
I found these pictures sitting in the My Documents folder in my computer. I have no idea how they got there or where they came from. It must have been a too much tequila not enough rational thinking kind of night. If one or more of them belongs to you and you don't want them here - I'll be happy to remove them.
