Thanks. I try to leap with a parachute every year during my vacation.

Yesterday my window almost fell out when I was shutting it closed for the night. Than my dad was pissed off about it and yelled at me.This morning we had a guy come over and check it out. Turns out my window is suppose to come out kind of like opening an oven door. And expecting severe weather down here today. Another place that I want in Anchorage would be an Olive Garden. Its my favorite restaurant. I have a feeling someone is going to say their food tastes like a tv dinner.

No, we just feel that if you want those things, stay in the lower 48.

Had chicken bowtie pasta for dinner, took a shower, and I am ready for church. The only severe weather so far has been around Denver.

Lots of people in Anchorage want an Olive Garden, and a Red Lobster and keep on hearing one might come, but so far they are not. I heard a rumor that it is because Olive Garden is owned by Red Lobster and there may have been rules imposed about how they get their seafood so they weren't interested. I like their soup and salad, it really tastes fresher than what most restaurants that I have been to serve. That is what can be tough about moving to various places, missing things from the old place.

Actually both Red Lobster and Olive Garden are owned by Darden Restaurants (DRI). The original Red Lobster was opened in Lakeland, Florida about 1968. The chain was bought by General Mills (GIS) and the first Olive Garden was opened in Orlando about 1982. They were spun off from General Mills in 1993 as Darden Restaurants. Red Lobster is primarily a seafood restaurant. Olive Garden is an Italian Restaurant and has been very successful. It features a large bowl of salad and bread sticks served first and then the meal from the menu which contains a selection of Italian dishes. They are both successful medium priced sit down restaurants in the lower 48. They have an international presence but I've never been to one outside the US.

Hi my friends! Explain me, please, the different between two English verbs : "jump" and "leap".

leap - definition of leap by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.
jump - definition of jump by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.

There is not much of a difference.
