George – Amal Clooney divorcing, rumors say

George - Amal Clooney divorcing, rumors say

George Clooney, sometimes referred to as one of the most handsome men in the world, is on the verge of a divorcing his wife, the British-Lebanese international human rights lawyer, Amal Clooney (Alamuddin) according to celebrity rumors.

As one of Hollywood’s most famous bachelors, Clooney made a surprise move by getting engaged in April 2014 and tying the knot on Sept. 27, 2014. However, according to InTouch magazine, the four-month-old marriage is reportedly ending in a $200 million divorce.

According to the report, the dispute is a result of fights between the couple over having a baby and Amal’s jealousy over George’s friendship with other women.

George Clooney, the handsome American actor and long-time bachelor, had previously made comments that he was not the “settling down” type. However, he had made efforts to change his reputation by publicizing his relationship with the renowned United Nations lawyer Amal Alamuddin, and publicly praised her at every opportunity.

George Timothy Clooney, born May 6, 1961, has worked as a writer, producer, director and activist besides being an actor. He has received numerous awards for his work, most famously three Golden Globe Awards and two Academy Awards among many others.

Then in the late 1960’s Australian surfers started making boots out of sheepskin to keep their feet warm when they were out of the water.

Miss Marple - Geraldine McEwan

Geraldine McEwan (born Geraldine McKeown; 9 May 1932) is an English actress with a diverse history in theatre, film and television. From 2004 to 2009 she appeared as Miss Marple, the Agatha Christie sleuth, for the series Marple. Background and Family: McEwan was born Geraldine McKeown on 9 May 1932 in Old Windsor, Berkshire, England to Donald and Norah (née Burns) McKeown. She attended Windsor County Girls’ School, then a private school, on a scholarship and took elocution lessons. In 1953 she married the former principal of the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts, Hugh Cruttwell, whom she first met while working at the Theatre Royal, Windsor. They have a son Greg, who is an actor and screenwriter, and daughter Claudia. McEwan has not remarried since Cruttwell’s death in 2002. Career:

As a teenager McEwan became interested in theatre and her extensive theatrical career began at 14 as assistant stage manager at the Theatre Royal, Windsor. She made her first appearance on the Windsor stage in October 1946 as an attendant of Hippolyta in A Midsummer Night’s Dream and played many parts with the Windsor Repertory Company from March 1949 to March 1951, including a role in the Ruth Gordon bio play Years Ago opposite guest player John Clark. She made her first West End appearance at the Vaudeville Theatre on 4 April 1951 as Christina Deed in Who Goes There!, which was markedly successful.

Her career blossomed, with performances in such award-winning productions as The Rivals, The Way of the World and The Chairs. She appeared with Kenneth Williams in the original 1965 production of Loot by Joe Orton, which closed at the Wimbledon Theatre before reaching London. She spent several seasons with the Royal Shakespeare Company in the late 1950s and early 1960s, playing in many of the Shakespeare comedies; her roles included a rendition of Olivia in Twelfth Night in 1958. McEwan worked more than once with Laurence Olivier on both stage and screen, most notably in The Dance of Death staged by Glen Byam Shaw for the National Theatre at the Old Vic in February 1967. She made her directing debut in 1988 with the Renaissance Theatre Company’s touring season, Renaissance Shakespeare on the Road, co-produced with the Birmingham Rep, and ending with a three-month repertory programme at the Phoenix Theatre in London. McEwan’s contribution was a light romantic staging of As You Like It, with Kenneth Branagh playing Touchstone as an Edwardian music hall comedian. In the same season Judi Dench and Derek Jacobi also made their debuts as directors. Her numerous television credits included The Barchester Chronicles with Alan Rickman, The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie, Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit, Mulberry, and Mapp and Lucia (1985/6). She was also in the Cassandra episode of Red Dwarf, playing a prescient computer. In 2002, she starred in Peter Mullan’s The Magdalene Sisters, giving a performance as Sister Bridget.

Miter Joints – Close the Gap

Miter Joints – Close the Gap

Perfect miter joints are the most challenging part of making picture frames.
Even though it’s the most challenging, if you follow these steps and take your time you’ll be able to produce perfect miter joints every time!
Making thousands of miter joints over the years, I have refined my process over and over until I got to the point of making perfect miters joints every time.

Below you’ll find the Golden Rules according to me – haha – of course there may be a difference of opinion out there some where.

It works for me and will work for you!
Miter Joints - Close the Gap
Golden Rule #1 Your miter saw or the miter gauge on your table saw must be set to EXACTLY 45°
Golden Rule #2. The opposing rails must be IDENTICAL in length
Golden Rule #3. You must use the EXACT same process when cutting miter joints on the rails; don’t change the stop blocks, don’t change the angle of the miter gauge, don’t turn your miter saw to “the other side” to cut the opposing miter.
Don’t let the rails move at all during the cutting process.
When I say exact same process I mean exact same process!
Break any of these Golde Rules and you, along with anyone else who sees your picture frame, will know you took the easy way out!!
If you follow these rules you will turn into a Miter Master!
Using a carpenter square will ensure that you have a 45° angle.

Lay it up against the teeth of the blade and the fence. It should be flush on both sides.

If there’s a gap –  you’re not at 45°.

Adjust the saw again and make sure it is exact.

Effort now, will save you later!

We know from the previous process of milling our wood, that the rails are the same thickness and currently the same length.
Before we set the stop blocks and cut the rails to final length, our first move will be cutting a miter on each end of both of the 36 inch rails.
Clamp your rails in place before making the cuts, this ensures there is absolutely no movement as the rail is being cut.
Make your first cut with the face side of the rail up (the inside of the rail, where your cove is, should always be facing the blade when making your miter cuts).
Make the second cut by simply flipping the rail end over end and cutting the opposite miter.
Repeat these steps on the second rail.
Do not change the process at all.
