These beams were three feet wide and seventeen inches across the flanged sides. The steel would weigh 300 pounds per foot — some as many as 90 feet long.

    Mike, I want to hear that story, too! That must’ve been a locally-famous story at the time, now forgotten in the annals of history. I want details!

    Ya, I’m going to look into that. I also found a picture of an old lady named “Grandma Lyons” touring the site. I can’t figure out who that was.

    Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine. Well, change has truly come this way in the form of something new and very powerful so pay attention. Imagine being able to rank any page, any site, any article, web 2.0 hub, video, forum, amazon listing…any online content at all at the top of Google for your niche. This is made possible by leveraging the power of blogs platforms, bookmarking sites, link wheels, web 2.0 sites, social sites, article directories, press releases, rss feeds and directories, forums with profiles and blog networks. Yes, this combination works nicely but you would need to work about 40 hours a day to keep up with it. That is why it is important that you check out this new software that can do it all for you automatically. Go ahead and take a look… http://tinyurl.com/7u4g8jd
