(AP Photo/Lynne Sladky)MIAMI — The only 3-pointer that the Miami Heat made in the fourth quarter came with just about a minute to go, when Rodney McGruder connected from the right corner.Problem is, he stepped out of bounds first.ADVERTISEMENT And that sums up things right now for the Heat.The Brooklyn Nets were more than happy to add to Miami’s home woes.

They were 0 for 7 from 3-point range in the fourth, 7 for 13 from the free-throw stripe in that period — and were 4 for 19 from the floor overall in those 12 minutes, with the game on the line. And for the game, Miami was just 25 for 60 inside the paint.“Missed shots, those will happen,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “Again, that seemed like we missed quite a few in the paint. We had some point-blank opportunities.”Josh Richardson scored 16 and McGruder finished with 15 for Miami.

To say either team was “winning” at that point would be a stretch.It was the lowest-scoring half of the season for each team. The 81 combined points represented the lowest-scoring first half of any NBA game this season, and both teams went into intermission shooting 33 percent.The Heat missed their first eight shots of the game, then opened the second quarter on a 14-0 run while the Nets missed nine consecutive shots. After three minutes of the second quarter, the Heat were shooting 25.7 percent — which not only had them in the lead, it also outpaced the Nets’ 22.2 percent rate to that point.“You can definitely see guys not playing just free with their game,” Wade said. “We’re overthinking at times.

Do you know anyone that would dare present their partner with one of these gifts on Valentine’s Day?Watson Hire in Letterkenny had us in stitches with their special Valentine’s offer.The home and hardware store revealed a section of their “premier selection”, saying: “Spoil your Valentine this year with a gift from our premier selection. “Never mind the flowers and chocolates… give them what they really want. Go on, be adventurous this year.”The picture went viral on Facebook with their cheeky post being shared over 3,600 times.One commenter wrote: “Well at least if you received one, you instantly have something to hand to beat him to death with!” Another commenter quipped: “It would definitely be cheaper than flowers – but then again doctors bills might be a bit expensive.”In a hilarious video uploaded earlier this month, a salesman clad in a Bond-like tux, a beanie hat and fashionable white wellies also garnered thousands of views as they outlined even more “alternative” Valentine’s gifts, including his and hers wellies, an ironing board, a mop bucket (to go with the new mop of course), and wipes (for if “things get a bit mucky”).If the special woman in your life is after something a little bit more fashionable, Watsons have that covered too.“Give the love of your life what she wants this year,” they posted along with a picture of these… unique wellies.Well that’s the Valentine’s shopping sorted – at least they’re practical gifts (you can definitely convince her that you were just being thoughtful with these goodies).Cheeky Donegal shop is offering a ‘clean sweep’ of Valentine’s gifts was last modified: February 13th, 2018 by Elaine McCalligShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:cleaningFunnygift guideletterkennymopValentines DayViralWatson Hire

Herbert Baker’s own house was constructed from the stone on the ridge.(Image: Lucille Davie) MEDIA CONTACTS • Flo Bird Chairperson, Johannesburg Heritage Foundation +27 11 726 7528. RELATED ARTICLES • South Africa’s heritage is world class • Swartkrans gets heritage plaque • New deal to protect Mapungubwe site • Capturing our heritage on cameraLucille DavieOld buildings, struggle sites, gracious homes, green spaces, mine dumps and the city’s first farms – these are just some of the tours available in Johannesburg on the first weekend of Heritage Month.The Johannesburg Heritage Foundation‘s annual heritage weekend runs on Saturday and Sunday, 7 and 8 September, and the pick of tours is broad and fun. The walking and bus tours start and finish at the 108-year-old Holy Family College in Oxford Road, Parktown.To start, take a tour of the college buildings, the museum and the heritage classrooms, where you can write with a dip pen in real, old-fashioned ink.“I am hoping for beautiful spring weather and hopefully we’ll get 800 to 1 000 people. Some loyal souls come for the entire two-day period,” says Flo Bird, the chairperson of the foundation.NorthwardsThe Randlord suburbs of Parktown and Westcliff are full of gracious old homes, some over 100 years old. There’s Northwards, designed by British architect Sir Herbert Baker for mine owner John Dale Lace, and completed in 1904. Baker’s most famous design is the Union Buildings in Pretoria.It is perched on the top of the Parktown ridge overlooking the M1 freeway and the northern suburbs, and has views all the way to the Magaliesberg mountains on clear days. His wife, Jose, lived in grand style – when she went shopping, she would have one of her servants blow a bugle as she left her home. She rode around the suburb in a cart pulled by four zebras, and took milk baths in a marble tub.The 40-roomed mansion, now a national monument, combines decorative Dutch and Flemish gables with Baker’s beloved arts and crafts style. It is an imposing presence on the cliff, with its façade constructed of quartzite rock taken from the site. The south side is dominated by an impressive entrance portico topped by a Cape Dutch gable, with its architecture an eclectic mix of styles. The windows are a mix of Tudor, Palladian, and English styles. There is even a window in a chimney.Inside the mansion are further treasures – the large wood-panelled, double-ceiling entertaining hall with minstrel gallery, and opposite it, a delicately carved Juliet balcony, a sandstone fireplace, teak ceiling, large brass chandeliers, and intimate dining area off the hall, with tall windows opening to the view northwards.Room after room is a delight, and it’s rumoured that the ghost of Jose occasionally appears on the grand stairway. The mansion has been immaculately maintained, and the curator, Neil Viljoen, conducts tours with all the affection he has for the old home.Just up the road is Stone House, the house that Baker built for himself, with its generous garden overlooking the northern suburbs, and stone used from the ridge. Then there are other lovely houses to peek at nearby: Emoyeni, Villa Arcadia, Etunzini, The View, and the homes along Pallinghurst Road.Take a bus tour of the parks suburbs, with their historic homes of pioneers and celebrities. Enjoy the profusion of trees, part of the 10 million trees in Joburg’s urban forest. Some large trees are remnants of the original Sachenwald forest, planted to supply the mines with underground support posts.Down southBut it’s not just these grand old suburbs. You can head down to Kliptown in Soweto to take in the place where the Freedom Charter was ratified by 3 000 people, in the struggle tour. Then see where Marshall Square once stood, the site of the incarceration of many struggle activists, and the famous escape of four Rivonia Trialists. The bus moves to Beyers Naude Square, the heart of Joburg and the starting point of many protests – even today.“I am really pleased that we are going as far afield as Kliptown in the south and Bezuidenhout Park in the east. Bez Valley is one valley further than we have done in the past and it gives us a chance to show off a stunning laundry in Lorentzville. Magnificent brickwork in the gables which are free standing,” explains Bird.While in the city, sign up for the walking tour taking in Ferreirasdorp, where Joburg started, Chinatown, Chancellor House, where Nelson Mandela and Oliver Tambo had their law offices, and Mary Fitzgerald Square, where Fitzgerald protested against mine owners, now a place of concerts and fun events. Take a walk around the inner city, admire the impressive Rand Club, the old stamp battery in Hollard Square, used to crush gold-bearing rock. It will go up Main Street to the Leaping Impala sculpture, now restored and giving an elegance to the art deco buildings in the street.Or hop on a bus to the southern suburbs, where you can learn about the haunts of mine owner Sir Abe Bailey, the infamous Hanekom brothers and their reign of terror, and the notorious murderess Daisy de Melker. At the same time, you will drive past the last remaining, and fast disappearing, mine dumps, and reflect on what defined Joburg for many years.Or head out on a bus east to the Bezuidenhout Valley farm, one of the city’s first white farms. Head back through Doornfontein, which is littered with historic sites. Food and books will be on sale at the college in Oxford Road, and you can sign up to become a member of the foundation, and go on its popular weekly tours. All tours cost R50, and no booking is required.
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest I am still spreading lime for some of the neighbors. We got most of the dry fertilizer spread on our ground and we have been doing some tillage. Some fields we are chiseling, some we are running a no-till ripper and other fields we are running vertical tillage on corn stalks. We just finished spraying yesterday on just about all of our acres. We have had good weather to get it done.We spread rye on with the spreader and worked it in after wheat for a cover crop. We’d like to get some straw off of it next year. Time will tell how that will work but we got a good start with it this fall.Marketing will be an issue with these prices, but luckily we at least have a good crop to market. In 2017 we’ll probably just stick with our normal rotation. I can’t see where one crop would outweigh the other. There is a lot of demand for both crops out there, but we have big crops of both so any way we can get trade working for us it would really help. The Trans Pacific Partnership doesn’t look like it is going anywhere. Maybe we can come up with better trade deal down the road.We are hoping to finish tillage this weekend and maybe start on drainage tile after that. I have a week or so of lime left to spread, but the supply around here is running out.
