So, I had a calling towards trains since my birth. Walking the tracks, I would meet i_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ people, learn to know when t_ _ _ _ _ were coming through the vibration and singing of the r_ _ _ _, and would be immersed in a world with a f_ _ _ _ _ on one side and the Puget Sound and the other.

Bamboo p_ _ _ _ are sold through o_ _ _ _ _ retailers, l_ _ _ _ bamboo suppliers (where available), import stores a_ _ some garden centers. The poles come in sizes ranging f_ _ _ about 1/4" to 5" in diameter and in lengths up to 20 ft. or so. Of course, the d_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ are approximate and variable, since this is a n_ _ _ _ _ _ product. For this project, the vertical supports are 1-1/2" in diameter and the horizontal and vertical crosspieces are 1" in diameter. While bamboo can survive m_ _ _ years of exposure to the elements, a bamboo trellis is lightweight enough that you can simply pull it off of its supports and store it over w_ _ _ _ _. Ground contact or burial of bamboo poles d_ _ _ lead to premature rot, so it’s a good idea to prop up the trellis poles on stones or brick to prevent ground contact. A s_ _ _ _ pile of stones nicely hides the rebar and creates an attractive base around e_ _ _ _ support pole.

In order to f______ properly, cells need to have appropriate c_______ such as proper temperature, pH, and appropriate concentration of diverse chemicals. These conditions may, h______, change from one moment to the next. Organisms are able to m______ internal conditions within a narrow range almost constantly, despite environmental c_____, through homeostasis (literally, “steady state”). For example, an o______ needs to regulate body t_______ through a process known as thermoregulation. Organisms that live in c__ climates, such as the p___ bear, have body structures that help them withstand low temperatures and conserve b___ heat. Structures that aid in this type of insulation include fur, feathers, blubber, and fat. In hot climates, organisms have methods (such as perspiration in humans or panting in dogs) that help them to shed e______ body heat.

Birds add color, movement, and music to a garden. As if that’s not enough to m_ _ _ them welcome guests, some species e_ _ their weight in mosquitoes, grubs, and insects daily. The single most important thing you can d_ to attract birds is to provide a source of water, a fact that puts a birdbath near the top of any list of a_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ garden ornaments. This birdbath is sturdy, inexpensive, and e_ _ _ to b_ _ _ _. Best of all, its classic lines only i_ _ _ _ _ _ with age. If you p_ _ _ _ _ it in a shady spot and encourage patches of moss to develop, it will blend into the landscape as if it’s been part of your garden for decades. It’s m_ _ _ from hypertufa—a mixture of portland cement, peat moss, and sand or perlite. W_ _ _ _ _ _ with hypertufa is like making mud pies, except that it dries into an attractive substance that holds its shape and stands up to years of use. For general i_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ on working with hypertufa, see page 193. For this birdbath, use Recipe #2, which creates a watertight formula.  

(samo glagoli): When it comes to b_ _ _ _ _ _ _ codes and treehouses, the official word is that there is no official word. Many municipalities—the governing p_ _ _ _ _ over building and zoning laws—consider treehouses to be “temporary” structures when they fit within certain size limits, typically about 100 to 120 square feet and not more than 10 to 12 feet tall. If you h_ _ _ _ concerns about the restrictiveness of the local laws, k_ _ _ _ _ _ your treehouse within their size limits for temporary structures is a good precaution to take. It’s often likely that city officials c_ _ _ _ _ _ _ treehouses too minor to be concerned with them. On top of that, building codes for earth-bound buildings are based on measurable, predictable factors that engineers use to ca_ _ _ _ _ _ _ things like strength requirements. Drafting a set of standards for structures built on living, moving, and infinitely variable foundations (trees) quickly becomes a cat-herding exercise for engineers. Thus, few codes exist that set construction standards for treehouses. This means more responsibility is p_ _ _ _ _ on the builder. When it comes to z_ _ _ _ _ laws, the city p_ _ _ _ _ _ _ office is concerned less with a treehouse’s construction and more with its impact on your property. They may state that you can’t build anything within 3 feet or more of your property line (a setback restriction) or that you c_ _’_ build a treehouse in your front yard. 

(Samo glagoli) No matter what kind of greenhouse you h_ _ _ in mind, chances are you c_ _ find a kit to match your vision. Dozens of companies o_ _ _ _ kits in diverse styles, sizes, materials, and prices. Some offer door options—sliding versus swinging doors, for example, with and without locks and screens. Some offer glazing combinations, such as polycarbonate roof panels with glass walls. And some even offer extension kits for certain models, so you can a_ _ onto your greenhouse as your space requirements grow. Kit basics usually i_ _ _ _ _ _ framing, glazing panels, vents (though usually not enough—it’s a good idea to buy extras), and hardware. A good kit will c_ _ _ predrilled and precut, so you only n_ _ _ a few tools to assemble it. Kits do not include the foundation, benches, or accessories. Be s_ _ _ the kit you choose comes with clear, comprehensive instructions and a customer-service number for assistance. Also ensure that it c_ _ _ _ _ _ _ with your local building codes and p_ _ _ _ _ _ _ regulations. Depending on the company, s_ _ _ _ _ _ _ may be included in the price. Because kits are heavy, shipping can be expensive; be sure to figure it and the cost of the foundation, benches, all necessary accessories, and the installation of utilities into your budget.

If you’re fortunate enough to h_ _ _ a yard with at least one sizable tree on it, you’ve probably entertained the idea of b_ _ _ _ _ _ _ a treehouse (after all, you are human, which makes you roughly 96 percent chimp). So what’s st_ _ _ _ _ _ you? Let’s see . . .you’re not a carpenter, your design skills are largely or totally untested, and you don’t k_ _ _ the first thing about building a house, let alone one that hovers 10 feet above the ground. No big deal—you can do this. The first step is to l_ _ _ _ a little bit about trees and decide whether you have a suitable host. And don’t w_ _ _ _ if your yard isn’t blessed with the perfect specimen; there are plenty of options for the arboreally c_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _. Next comes a basic lesson in treehouse design (if you can tell the difference between a 2 × 4 and a lag screw, you’ll d_ just fine). Here you’ll also learn the important relationship between the tree and the house design and why the living wood determines the best plan for the lumber. The foundation of any treehouse is the platform. That’s what’s anchored to the tree and therefore requires the most s_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ techniques and considerations. But once the platform is in place, a treehouse goes up pretty much like any outdoor building, such as a shed or a doghouse for an Irish Wolfhound. Yet treehouses aren’t just tree-borne outbuildings; many of them are more like out-there buildings, with funky angles, fun accessories, and all manner of custom details that sprout from the builder’s imagination or, more accurately, from their inner child. Zip line, anyone?

Bull running was a var_ _ _ _ activity. It was usually held on a h_ _ _ _ _ _. It began with the baiting of the b_ _ _ _, usually with l_ _ _ _ _ irritants or a red effigy. This was followed by a free-for-all through the s_ _ _ _ _ _ of the town. It was similar to contemporary bull running in F_ _ _ _ _ and Spain, the most f_ _ _ _ _ being at Pamplona. Badger baiting was another form of the sport. Again the a_ _ _ _ _ was tied to a stake and a dog was loosed on it, worrying it while the badger f_ _ _ _ _ back with its jaws and claws. A variation of this sport was badger drawing, in which a badger was placed in a box. The dog’s master held the d_ _ by the scruff of its n_ _ _ and by the tail, letting the dog into the box and then drawing it out by the t_ _ _.

T_ _ wheel is one of the key components o_ the wheel a _ _ axle w_ _ _ _ is one of the six simple m_ _ _ _ _ _ _. Wheels, i_ conjunction w_ _ _ axles, allow heavy objects t _ b_ moved easily facilitating movement o_ t_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ w_ _ _ _ supporting a load, or performing labor i_ machines. W _ _ _ _ _ are also u_ _ _ for o_ _ _ _ purposes, such as a ship's wheel, steering wheel, potter's wheel and flywheel. Common examples a_ _ found i_ t_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ applications. A wheel greatly reduces friction b_ facilitating motion by rolling t_ _ _ _ _ _ _ with the use of axles. In order for wheels t_ r_ _ _ _ _, a moment needs to be applied to the wheel about its axis, either by way of g_ _ _ _ _ _ or by the application of another external f_ _ _ _ or torque. Using t_ _ w_ _ _ _, Sumerians invented a contraption t_ _ _ spins clay as a potter shapes i_ into the desired object. 

 Of course, b_ _ _ _ _ a greenhouse that is too small c_ _ lead to frustration if your plant collection outgrows the space. It is also much more difficult to c_ _ _ _ _ _ the temperature. One compromise is to buy a greenhouse that’s one size larger than you originally planned, or better yet, to i_ _ _ _ _ in an expandable structure. Many models are available as modules that allow additions as your enthusiasm g_ _ _ _. When choosing a greenhouse, take into account the size of your property. How much space will the structure c_ _ _ _ _ _? Most of the expense comes from operating the greenhouse, especially during winter. The larger the structure, the more expensive it is to h_ _ _ _. Be sure the greenhouse has enough room for you to w_ _ _. Allow space for benches, shelves, tools, pots, watering cans, soil, hoses, sinks, and a pathway through the plants. If you want benches on both sides, choose a greenhouse that is at least 8 ft. wide by 10 ft. long. G_ _ _ yourself enough headroom, and allow extra height if you are growing tall plants or plan to hang baskets

There were people who couldn't live without slavery, and others who couldn't live____ slavery, but most people just didn't care. The pro-slavery and anti-slavery groups could not make an _____ where both sides would be satisfied. The slave system was at severe risk unless the laws of the nation_______ ownership of slaves no matter where the slave was at the moment, otherwise they would just cross into free territory and be free. New laws_____ escaped slaves to be returned to their owners, even if the slave was in an area where most of the people_____ slavery, like Chicago, which had riots when the law was enforced. The new president Lincoln was for anti-slavery and pro-slavery groups thought that he would not¬¬¬¬_____ the laws, so most of the states where slavery was legal decided to declare independence from the rest of the country.  When Lincoln tried to resupply the fort in Fort Sumter, South Carolina, troops loyal to South Carolina___ on the fort. That action set public opinion in New York City, which profited from the primary slavery crop cotton, to drop its support for the independence states and there was just enough support to send more______ to the South to bring them back into the union.
