Time to pull them out of the ground and plant something different.
Jeanne made a few phone calls to get some estimates - thought I might check here and see if anyone has a recommendation on someone whose work they like.
I'd be willing to give you an estimate. Pm if you're interested still.

The whole family is in the room watching this.
Zac puts the habenaro in his mouth bites off half chews it up and swallows it.
We are all watching him.
Zac: its not hot.
That lasts about a minute
Zac:(yelling) get me ice cream fast! Get me ice cream fast!
Jim: is it hot?
Then I got him some ice cream.
Zac's doesn't feel great now.
Having, in years past, exercised similarly poor judgment to poor Zac, I can tell you with utmost confidence that milk is the answer, and plenty of it.

The cone attaches by way of simple screw type fasteners. It can be easily removed for repair.
These folks are still in business, and I'll bet they can hook you up. Their fairings are flexible enough that I'm sure you could make one fit, even if the dimensions were just close. I have one if you want to buzz down to Elizabeth and check it out. Mine is nowhere near the shape you would need, but you can get a sense for the materials. Some on this page look like the shape you need:

And in the realm of repair, it looks like you could dismount that fairing, patch it with bondo where pieces are missing, and then stretch a couple layers of simple fiberglass over it, them sand and paint. There's no reason it needs to be clear, right?

Another option is to take the bubble front to a shop that does upholstery, like a moto seat replacement or boat cushions and have them make a canvas cover or something similar?

There is an hour show Alan does on the entire subject. It is as expected, really excellent, but here is an article on pepper effects: http://www.pbs.org/saf/1105/segments/1105-4.htm

Here is some vid from the shoo: http://youtu.be/Hd_mxyMAJJY

Did you hear the one about a kid that drank a whole bottle of soy sauce on a dare? Lucky to be alive. Not saying a 9 yro eating a habenaro will harm him, but you never know how an individual's body will react to such an immediate and strong stimulus as a habenaro. Glad he is OK.


Teen survives coma after drinking entire bottle of soy sauce

Bottles of iron fortified soy sauce on display in Beijing, China on July 13, 2007. (AP / Elizabeth Dalziel)

Published Sunday, June 9, 2013 7:41AM EDT

A teen who accepted a dare to drink from a bottle of soy sauce swallowed an entire litre of the stuff before slipping into a coma.
The incident, which took place in 2011, is described in detail in the latest issue of The Journal of Emergency Medicine.
Doctors who treated the teen say he arrived at hospital two hours after being dared by friends to drink a bottle of soy sauce. When he arrived at the emergency room, he was having seizures, foaming at the mouth and had slipped into a coma.

A teen who accepted a dare to drink from a bottle of soy sauce swallowed an entire litre of the stuff before slipping into a coma.
The incident, which took place in 2011, is described in detail in the latest issue of The Journal of Emergency Medicine.

The doctors report the soy sauce had caused a sudden sodium surge in the teen's blood, leading to an electrolyte imbalance called hypernatremia.
The condition causes the body to try to move water out of tissues into the blood in an effort to dilute the salt. In severe cases, like the one experienced by the teen, the brain leaches water, which can bring on seizures, coma and eventually death.
The quart of soy sauce the teen drank would have likely contained about 56,000 milligrams of sodium. To put that into perspective, Health Canada says the average Canadian takes in about 3,400 mg of sodium a day, although they recommend no more than 1,500 mg a day.
Doctors say they were able to save the teen by giving him a solution of water and dextrose through a nasal tube, filling him with six litres of the fluid over 30 minutes.
After about five hours, the teen's sodium levels had returned to normal, they report. He stayed in a coma for three days and when he awoke, tests showed he had suffered no brain damage.
The doctors say that at their peak, the sodium level in the teen's blood was 196 mmol/L To their knowledge, they write, that "is the highest documented level in an adult patient to survive an acute sodium ingestion without neurologic deficits."
The teen involved was not identified. But according to several media reports, a student at the University of Virginia was rushed to hospital in 2011 after drinking a bottle of soy sauce as part of a college fraternity hazing. It's not clear if the medical journal report describes the same teen.
The hazing incident led to a police and college investigation and prompted the closure of the fraternity for several months. The frat has since re-opened.

Go Easy On The Soy Sauce, Bro, It Could Kill You


by Scott Hensley





Keep the soy sauce on your food, and use it in moderation.


Aaron Tam/AFP/Getty Images
First, let's spoil this tale right away by telling you the 19-year-old man in Virginia who downed a quart of soy sauce on a dare survived.
It's a happy ending of sorts. But the guy had a close call. And you definitely don't want to try it.
While there's been quite a debate lately about whether the , there's no question that a massive amount of salt ingested quickly can lead to death.
In fact, suicide by soy sauce is not unknown in Asia. A 2011 in the Journal of Forensic and Legal Medicine describes the case of a 55-year-old woman diagnosed with depression. She died after drinking "a large quantity of shoyu (Japanese soy sauce)," doctors wrote.
Back in the early '90s, Mayo Clinic doctors on a 41-year-old man who died after swallowing a salty gargling solution. That case and a look at the medical literature up to that point led them to caution other doctors about using salty water to induce vomiting.
A salt dose ranging from 0.75 grams to 3 grams per kilogram of body weight can kill someone. A tablespoon of salt weighs about 15 grams, in case you're wondering.
If you're metrically challenged, just consider that the unnamed fellow in the published online by the Journal of Emergency Medicine, weighed about 160 pounds and probably consumed around 170 grams of salt by drinking a bottle of soy sauce. That works out to a little more than 2 grams of salt per kilogram in his case.
After downing the soy sauce, he ran into trouble pretty fast. Within two hours he was in the emergency room at a local hospital. He was grinding his teeth and didn't respond to pain or verbal commands. His arms were stiff and at his side.
Doctors were worried about seizures and put him on drugs to control them. They also ran a tube from his nose into his stomach and sucked out some "brown material with scant streaks of blood," the report says.
The patient was transferred to a bigger hospital, the University of Virginia Medical Center in Charlottesville, within four hours of the soy sauce guzzling.
His blood sodium level measured at the medical center was the highest ever seen in an adult who survived such intoxiciation without lasting neurological problems, the medical paper says.
But the doctors didn't know if that would be the case. They opted for rapid treatment with water containing dextrose, a sugar, to dilute the sodium and encourage urination. The guy got six liters of IV fluid in half an hour. The sodium concentration in his blood fell, and he produced more than four liters of urine in short order.
The doctors took an aggressive approach even though there was a risk the man might experience brain swelling and other neurological side effects. They didn't see any.

Boss was showing me today a scar on his arm. He got it riding the summer luge in Steamboat. He said there is enough pollen on the course that they warn you if you crash and grind that pollen into your skin and you're allergic to pollen, it can put you into anaphylactic shock.... http://youtu.be/n5Zs2eQg49o

This is funny! We were looking at it just this afternoon and remarking about how many people have come away from that ride needing band-aids or skin grafts! Never even considered going into shock from an allergic reaction.

The Howler ......... it's crippled more people than polio!

"Sign this release form please."

An old guy that used to live here always wanted to have someone build one of his contraptions. It was supposed to be a cradle that one would strap into and then ride down a pair of rails that were placed down a steep slope. It would mimic the speed, weightlessness, g forces, flight sensations, etc. of ski jumping. Sorta' cool idea, huh?

Take a virtual ride down a mountainside on the world's scariest 'rollercoaster'


For some people the mere thought of skiing down a mountain is off-putting enough.
But this Austrian alpine-coaster offers what is perhaps the most frighteningly fast - and seemingly dangerous - downhill descent there is.
The single-pipe ride, which is located in Mieders, usually provides tourists with a slow, open trek down the mountainside.
