If this Bench Could Talk - Lime green grass struck my ankles like needles pinching my skin, it crawled up the brown old wooden bench I was situated on. Screaming children seemed to move rapidly from the left corner of my eye to the other. Children ran after a black and white squared ball like birds flying in a flock. Jerseys in two different shades seemed to dominate the green patch of grass that was spread widely. This was the park located a couple of blocks away from my house. There was a middle aged man standing in the middle of the grass with a white and black striped shirt, he seemed to blow the whistle every time the ball flew out of the assigned line....   [tags: observation essay, place essay] 993 words

Peter's Park Bench - The Peter’s Park bench was made of very sad, decaying wood; the kind you’d imagine was once painted a rich shade of mahogany before it had begun collecting termites, bird’s droppings, clumps of bubble gum and unoriginal graffiti. To the untrained eye, it appeared to be a crooked, splintery seat you’d dare not place your bottom on in fear of it collapsing beneath you, or of spiking yourself with old, rusty nails, or even in the best interest of your hygiene. Of course I was just as ignorant as the rest, in absolute disbelief that the ancient, weathered hunk of rotting timber could ever be anything more than just that....   [tags: short story] 673 words

The Splintered Old Bench - The Splintered Old Bench No one will find me. I’ll have hidden myself well. I part the green curtain as I walk, armed only with a camera, pen and paper, and a book. Behind me, the overgrown foliage and gnarled roots weave themselves back together, concealing the path I have taken. A passerby will overlook my refuge and dismiss it as just another place that nature has reclaimed from the materialistic world. A smile creeps across my face as I anticipate my long sought solitude.

Bench Press - Bench Press For lifters looking to create the classic "He-Man" physique, the single most important upper body workout is the bench press. The bench press builds the upper arm, chest, and shoulders. The muscles here have a great impact on making it look like you posses great strength, which is an important factor for many lifters. This workout is also one of the easiest lifts, since you are lying down on a static bench that prevents most unnecessary movement.

Hydraulic Breaks and Bench Bleeding - Brake Hydraulic System Principles & Service Tips. Everyone who works on brakes MUST know these concepts and procedures In the early days of the automobile, some very clever engineering was employed to apply brakes mechanically.
