In 1867, Seward finalized the purchase of almost 600,000 square miles of uncharted territory. It was a gamble for certain. The subsequent step was to go before Congress which was not to be an easy process. Though Seward was chomping on the bit to acquire the land, many others in the capital city were not so keen on the idea. The acquisition of Alaska had been given title of Seward’s Folly” or Seward’s Icebox”. It actually turned a joke on capital hill.
Lawrence, I’m sorry, I did not describe my house very clearly. The home has typical sq. partitions with domed roofs fabricated from concrete. The home was poured in three ½ units. The place every unit joins, there is a seam and on every seam is a French drain. However, the seams are cracking beneath the French Drains. We are hoping to pay off the loan soon and dig this up and seal the cracks beneath the French drains and set up a brand new skin IF it isn’t too expensive. In any other case we must abandon the home. We’ve tried epoxy, but it surely hasn’t helped. Thank you in your comment and options.
Staci, NICE learn. Very deep and informative. Until I read this hub, I never knew of any state that had NO income tax! Hmmm, if I may afford to maneuver, naah, Uncle Sam would devise a approach to tax that. I voted up and away. I’m now a fan and follower if that is okay with you. Respectfully, YOU are an amazing talent. Kenneth Avery, from a rural city, Hamilton, in northwest Alabama, that reminds you of Mayberry where Andy and Barney lived. After I was youthful and when my household bought our first TV, a Philco black and white deal, I thought when I watched Andy Griffith in Mayberry that when I died, I might go to Mayberry. Keep up the great work. Peace.
