- Become covered or submerged in this way
- an overwhelming number or amount; "a flood of requests"; "a torrent of abuse"
- Cover or submerge (a place or area) with water
- the rising of a body of water and its overflowing onto normally dry land; "plains fertilized by annual inundations"

- deluge: fill quickly beyond capacity; as with a liquid; "the basement was inundated after the storm"; "The images flooded his mind"
The Year of the Flood
Set in the visionary future of Atwood’s acclaimed Oryx and Crake, The Year of the Flood is at once a moving tale of lasting friendship and a landmark work of speculative fiction. In this second book of the MaddAddam trilogy, the long-feared waterless flood has occurred, altering Earth as we know it and obliterating most human life. Among the survivors are Ren, a young trapeze dancer locked inside the high-end sex club Scales and Tails, and Toby, who is barricaded inside a luxurious spa. Amid shadowy, corrupt ruling powers and new, gene-spliced life forms, Ren and Toby will have to decide on their next move, but they can't stay locked away.
The long-awaited new novel from Margaret Atwood. The Year of the Flood is a dystopic masterpiece and a testament to her visionary power.
The times and species have been changing at a rapid rate, and the social compact is wearing as thin as environmental stability. Adam One, the kindly leader of the God's Gardeners--a religion devoted to the melding of science and religion, as well as the preservation of all plant and animal life--has long predicted a natural disaster that will alter Earth as we know it. Now it has occurred, obliterating most human life. Two women have survived: Ren, a young trapeze dancer locked inside the high-end sex club Scales and Tails, and Toby, a God's Gardener barricaded inside a luxurious spa where many of the treatments are edible.
Have others survived? Ren's bioartist friend Amanda? Zeb, her eco-fighter stepfather? Her onetime lover, Jimmy? Or the murderous Painballers, survivors of the mutual-elimination Painball prison? Not to mention the shadowy, corrupt policing force of the ruling powers...
Meanwhile, gene-spliced life forms are proliferating: the lion/lamb blends, the Mo'hair sheep with human hair, the pigs with human brain tissue. As Adam One and his intrepid hemp-clad band make their way through this strange new world, Ren and Toby will have to decide on their next move. They can't stay locked away...
By turns dark, tender, violent, thoughtful, and uneasily hilarious, The Year of the Flood is Atwood at her most brilliant and inventive.
Margaret Atwood on The Year of the Flood
I’ve never before gone back to a novel and written another novel related to it. Why this time? Partly because so many people asked me what happened right after the end of the 2003 novel, Oryx and Crake. I didn’t actually know, but the questions made me think about it. That was one reason. Another was that the core subject matter has continued to preoccupy me.
When Oryx and Crake came out, it seemed to many like science fiction--way out there, too weird to be possible--but in the three years that passed before I began writing The Year of the Flood, the perceived gap between that supposedly unreal future and the harsh one we might very well live through was narrowing fast. What is happening to our world? What can we do to reverse the damage? How long have we got? And, most importantly--what kind of "we"? In other words, what kind of people might undertake the challenge? Dedicated ones--they’d have to be. And unless you believe our planet is worth saving, why bother?
So the question of inspirational belief entered the picture, and once you have a set of beliefs--as distinct from a body of measurable knowledge--you have a religion. The God’s Gardeners appear briefly in Oryx and Crake, but in The Year of the Flood, they’re central. Like all religions, the Gardeners have their own leader, Adam One. They also have their own honoured saints and martyrs, their special days, their theology. They may look strange and obsessive and even foolish to non-members, but they’re serious about what they profess; as are their predecessors, who are with us today. I’ve found out a great deal about rooftop gardens and urban beekeeping while writing this book!
Another question frequently asked about Oryx and Crake concerned gender. Why was the story told by a man? How would it have been different if the narrator had been a woman? Such questions led me to Ren and Toby, and then to their respective lives, and also to their places of refuge. A high-end sex club and a luxury spa would in fact be quite good locations in which to wait out a pandemic plague: at least you’d have bar snacks, and a lot of clean towels.
In his book, The Art Instinct, Denis Dutton proposes that our interest in narrative is built in--selected during the very long period the human race spent in the Pleistocene--because any species with the ability to tell stories about both past and future would have an evolutionary edge. Will there be a crocodile in the river tomorrow, as there was last year? If so, better not go there. Speculative fictions about the future, like The Year of the Flood, are narratives of that kind. Where will the crocodiles be? How will we avoid them? What are our chances? --Margaret Atwood

Mississippi River Flooding 2010 55: The Bill Emerson Memorial Bridge (view original size to see the flood wall)
More pictures of the flooding from this spring. The river has been at flood stage or above for most of the year.
This picture shows the Bill Emerson Memorial Bridge at Cape Girardeau, Missouri. It was taken from the boat ramp at Red Star.
I just noticed...if you view it original size, you can see Cape Girardeau's flood wall protecting the town from the water! You can also see one of the murals that's on the river side of the wall!
Flood Stage In October
We have gotten so much rain this Fall that the Buffalo River near Sabin, Minnesota is in flood stage. The trees are on the river bank, the water behind the tree line actually is a field. Farmers in our area are getting worried, they still have corn, potatoes,soybeans, and sugar beets in the field.

How to use Pet Razor Grooming Trimmer:
Start with the razor grooming trimmer placed right above the place you want to be shortened. Comb in the direction of hair growth, meaning comb down. The blade on the trimmer will cut as it comes in contact with the hair. Do not force the trimmer. Lightly comb down the hairline. Comb the hair several times so that all of the hairs get cut. Cut your hair until you are satisfied with the length, then clean your trimmer.
Be sure to know what type of style you want on your pet so that you know which motion you should use with the razor trimmer. It will not make buzzing noise and it will not scare your pets. Please note that this razor trimmer is not intended to de-tangle curly or long hair. For best result, the hair should be already de-tangled to prevent pulling your pets hair.

1960 Triumph TR3A
Chassis No. TS617627
Engine: 1991 cc OHV Straight-4
Transmission: Manual, 4-speed
The Triumph TR3A sport roadster was built between 1957 and 1962 by the Triumph Motor Company in the United Kingdom. The TR3A was a minor update from the previous TR3 model. Updates included a new wide front grill, exterior door handles, lockable boot handle and included a full tool kit as standard (this was an option on the TR3).
The Triumph TR3 was the first production car to include standard disc brakes, which continued on the TR3A. The car is well known for its superior braking ability, making it an autocross favorite. TR3A’s are often used in Vintage and Production racing, and despite being almost 50 years old, they are still competitive in the E-Production class of SCCA (Sports Car Club of America).
TS617627: This head turning, mechanically stout TR3A is quite the thrilling driver! The transmission shifts fantastic in all gears, while the engine pulls stronger than ever.
With glossy paint and bright chrome, the restoration presents very well! This highly bedecked example comes complete with rare factory hard top, soft top and full-cab tonneau cover, as well as side curtains, driving lamps, headlamp grills, wind wings, jack and spare.
The interior upholstery of the Triumph is quite impeccable. From carpeting to trim, every detail has been replaced and refinished, including the optional rear seat and seatbelts.
The beautifully running and reliable inline straight-four, is fitted with an aftermarket fireball electronic ignition and coil as well as twin Stromberg carburetors mounted to a long-runner manifold.
This TR3A is the perfect example for those seeking an affordable classic roadster which begs to be driven often!
* A thrilling driver!
* Mechanically strong!
* Includes un-restored hard top!

The built-in bench, with custom cushions built by 7 Oaks Upholstery in Winnipeg. Carpet installed by Sears. We added 1/2 round trim on the ledge of the benchs and on the shelves - as was done throughout the rest of the house in closets and on shelves. We also had to take about an inch off the bottom of that door to have it clear the carpet.
