Four dark feathered bundles of giant ostrich plumes encircling Lincoln casket appear to be visible as a blurry mess in the images. Other readily observed features include a wavy garland of white flowers and light colored fringe at the base of the hearse dark cloth enclosing its bottom most portion, both of which are visible in other Lincoln hearse images. What is not visible atop the catafalque is a miniature version of the Temple of Liberty which is discernible in other Lincoln funeral procession photos and sketches.
Bulls coach Phil Jackson said, “We told Horace, ‘Just take care of Oakley. We don’t care about the numbers, you’ve got to neutralize Oakley. Oakley is making a charge at the hoop every time. Sports endorsements have a lot to do with the sport in question. Golfers and even runners will pull down more money than bobsledders and weightlifters, since those are prime time sports that command bigger American TV audiences.

The Haida are recognized as the most accomplished artists of the First Nations, decorating themselves with a variety and number of tattoos that no other coastal First Nation used.

I wanted something unusual and distinctive as I wanted people to stop and chat to me as I cycled the local Monmouthshire Brecon Canal towpath, as I could now talk for hours on the finer points of bikes and cycling.Mercian’s frames were very beautiful, very high quality, but standard designs so after I wiped the drool and tears from my notepad, I ruled them out. Hetchins (now built by Bob Jackson) seemed to be everybody’s first choice, but it occurred to me that curly rear stays were only designed to soften the bumps out of the ride, and most modern roads are pretty smooth now, Bates did something similar with their front forks so it didn’t seem as if there was much to be gained, however for sheer aesthetic appeal they are extremely hard to beat.Then I came across Flying Gates, my first reaction was “what on earth is going on with those frames they look really wrong”, but I found that something about them just kept niggling at me, and I kept looking and finding out as much as I could. Their very unique design also offered something that other designs could not better power transmission, my aging limbs need whatever help they can get, and Flying Gates are supposed to have an advantage here.
