Married to Provenzano’s cousin, Giacalone was also making the rounds of the golf courses with ‘Tony Pro’ and Frank Fitzsimmons. Giacalone was currently under investigation by a federal grand jury, in Detroit, for income tax fraud and extorting a Teamster’s pension plan. He would go down in June 1976 for ten years on another tax fraud case.
3) A gravel bed made of pea gravel or crushed stone, crush and run being commonly used, is a tried and true option but the old method is not without its drawbacks. Today there are functional and pretty ways to use gravel. Combining it with modern stone look pavers that are actually new methods of allowing water to percolate into the ground (see below) and prevent gravel from shifting is a must consider update.
I ventured out only late in the afternoon to get some tile sealant and sticky mouse traps.I will spare you, gentle reader, the details of catching yet another mouse, and there really no need to mention how a friend told me about the humane execution method of drowning the struggling rodent in a bucket of soapy water. No, the average Mulberry Street vistor will have no interest in knowing that the soap does wonders to the surfactant lining those rapid little lungs, but she, in her sensibilities, and if pressed, would admit this does seem more humane than throwing the critter away live, whiskers tucked back, the thin rope of a tail flicking yesterday can of tomato sauce.Instead, I thought, how much better to share the pictures I took as I sauntered around Columbia magnificent urban campus in the slant of the late afternoon sunshine, and later, as I lounged with other Harlem residents at the foot of Grant Tombas we listened to live jazz in the perfect summer evening. One of the most incredible urban spaces in New York City.
I disappointed in Butte Environmental Council and its attempts to sabotage a very well thought out, state of the art recycling and renewable energy project in Glenn County. Particularly when part of BEC mission is education and awareness of recycling and that there is no BEC RARE program (Recycling and Rubbish Education) is funded by the Neal Road Landfill tipping fees. That seems like a conflict of interest, since Neal Road Landfill has been opposed to this project from the beginning..
Scoop NYC confirmed early Monday that all of its stores would be closing over the next several weeks and commenced a modest 10% off storewide promotion suggesting that it would be going the slow route toward clearing merchandise, but as regular, non liquidating stores are set to release markdowns in a few weeks, it seems like an acceleration is in order. Today, The Shophound was notified that storewide discounts have risen to 20% off with certain categories like boots and off season accessories discounted 30% to 40% off the lowest ticket prices. We didn see anything that had been previously reduced, so it would appear that most everything offered is still marked at full price, but the ugly liquidation posters are up in the windows, and when we stopped by the Third Avenue Scoop on the Upper East Side (pictured above and below) was being reorganized on the racks by category; dresses over here, pants over there, etc.
