Early and personal life[edit]
Lewis’ family live in British Columbia but he is estranged from them; in August 2014 his brother stated that he had not seen Lewis since 2007.[1] His father and uncle had lost touch with him some years previously.[2]
During the recording process of his 1980s albums Lewis worked as a stockbroker,[3] and lived in Calgary.[2] He lived with his girlfriend in an apartment with all-white furniture.[2][3]
Career[edit]
Lewis recorded two albums in 1983 and 1985 (L’Amour and Romantic Times) that were mostly forgotten until a record collector discovered L’Amour in an Edmonton flea market. They were both re-released by Seattle-based record label Light in the Attic in 2014.[1]
L’Amour was recorded in Los Angeles in 1983.[2][4] Lewis disappeared soon after the photoshoot by Edward Colver for the album cover, after his cheque to Colver bounced.[1][3]
Romantic Times was originally released in 1985 under the ‘Lewis Baloue’ pseudonym.[5] An original copy of the album sold on eBay in 2014 for $2,000.[6]
Two further albums – Love Ain’t No Mystery (recorded under the ‘Randy Duke’ pseudonym) and Hawaiian Breeze were also released by different record labels in 2014 and 2015 respectively.[7][8]
Under a different pseudonym, Lewis is also believed to have recorded a number of “very soft, religious music” albums in Vancouver in the mid-2000s which were never released.[1][3]
In 2014 Lewis stated that he was continuing to perform music, but that he was not interested in his earlier releases.[9]

Location of Preparation Canyon State Park in Iowa

Website: Preparation Canyon State Park

Preparation Canyon State Park is located north of Pisgah, Iowa, United States. Located in the Loess Hills, the 344-acre (139 ha) park is a relatively undisturbed and undeveloped place. It provides space for picnicking, hiking, and camping in ten hike-in camp sites. Dramatic ridges are located on the north, south and west sides of the park, which is located on the north end of the Loess Hills State Forest.
History[edit]
The park is named after the former settlement of Preparation, Iowa, that was located here. It was established in the 1850s by Charles B. Thompson and his followers. They were Mormons who had left the wagon trains heading west to Utah. They believed that their existence in this life was preparation for the world to come, therefore they named their community “Preparation.”[2] A property dispute between Thompson and his followers, who were instructed to call him “Father Ephraim” after the Biblical figure of the same name, had to be settled by the Iowa Supreme Court and Thompson fled the state.[3] At one time the town had 67 houses, a post office, skating rink, and blacksmith shop, but by the turn of the 20th century the town had been deserted except for the stockyard, which closed in 1946. Walter and Martha Perrin, who were descended from the original Mormons, sold the first 82 acres (33 ha) for the park to the state of Iowa in 1934. Martha sold a further 157 acres (64 ha) to the state in 1969, and eventually the family farmstead.

SR 126 →

State Route 125 (SR 125) is a primary state highway in the U.S. state of Virginia. Known as Kings Highway, the state highway has two sections that run a total of 5.73 miles (9.22 km) from SR 10 and SR 32 at Chuckatuck east to SR 337 at Driver within the independent city of Suffolk. SR 125 consists of a 2.69-mile (4.33 km) western section and a 3.04-mile (4.89 km) eastern section separated by a gap at the Nansemond River. This gap arose when the Kings Highway Bridge across the river was removed in 2008.

Route description[edit]
SR 125 begins at an intersection with SR 10 and SR 32 (Godwin Boulevard) in the hamlet of Chuckatuck in the city of Suffolk. The state highway heads east as a two-lane road that passes historic St. John’s Church then veers south to a dead end at Hollidays Point on the Nansemond River at the former site of the Kings Highway Bridge.[1][2] SR 125 picks up again at a dead end due south of the western segment’s dead end to the north of Nansemond National Wildlife Refuge. The highway veers east and passes through a forested area to the community of Driver, where the highway reaches its eastern terminus at SR 337 (Nansemond Parkway). Traveling between Chuckatuck and Driver requires crossing the Nansemond River near its mouth on U.S. Route 17 (US 17) on the Nansemond River Bridge or on one of several crossings of the river at its head of navigation in the center of Suffolk.[1][3]
Major intersections[edit]
The entire route is in Suffolk.

Lieutenant General Sir Richard Strachey GCSI FRS (1817–1908), British soldier and Indian administrator, third son of Edward Strachey and grandson of Sir Henry Strachey, 1st Baronet was born on 24 July 1817, at Sutton Court, Stowey, Somerset. From Addiscombe Military Seminary he passed into the Bengal Engineers in 1836,[1] and was employed for some years on irrigation works in the North-Western Provinces. So many members of the family were in the Indian government that sarcastic mentions were made of the “Government of the Stracheys”.[2]

Life and work[edit]
Strachey served in the First Anglo-Sikh War of 1845–46, and was at the battles of Aliwal and Sobraon, was mentioned in dispatches, and received a brevet-majority.
In 1848, with J. E. Winterbottom, he entered Tibet to explore Lakes Manasarovar and Rakshastal, which his brother Henry Strachey had visited in 1846. In 1849, the two brothers briefly re-entered Tibet by following the Niti Pass out of Garhwal.[3]
From 1858 to 1865 he was chiefly employed in the public works department, either as acting or permanent secretary to the government of India, and from 1867 to 1871 he filled the post of director-general of irrigation, then specially created.
During this period the entire administration of public works was reorganised to adapt it to the increasing magnitude of the interests with which this department has had to deal since its establishment by Lord Dalhousie in 1854. For this reorganisation, under which the accounts were placed on a proper footing and the forest administration greatly developed, Strachey was chiefly responsible. His work in connection with Indian finance was important. In 1867 he prepared a scheme in considerable detail for decentralising the financial administration of India, which formed the basis of the policy afterwards carried into effect by his brother Sir John Strachey under Lord Mayo and Lord Lytton.

He left India in 1871, but in 1877 he was sent there to confer with the government on the purchase of the East Indian railway, and was then selected as pr

Intermediate host

A secondary host or intermediate host is a host that harbors the parasite only for a short transition period, during which (usually) some developmental stage is completed. For trypanosomes, the cause of sleeping sickness, humans are the intermediate host, while the tsetse fly is the definitive host, given that it has been shown that reproduction occurs in the insect. Cestodes (tapeworms) and other parasitic flatworms have complex life-cycles, in which specific developmental stages are completed in a sequence of several different hosts.
As the life cycles of many parasites are not well understood, sometimes the “more important” organism is arbitrarily defined as definitive, and this designation may continue even after it is determined to be incorrect. For example, sludge worms are sometimes considered “intermediate hosts” for whirling disease, even though it is known that the parasite causing the disease reproduces sexually inside them.[1]
In Trichinella spiralis, the roundworm that causes trichinosis, a host has both reproductive adults in its digestive tract and immature juveniles in its muscles, and is therefore considered both an intermediate host and a definitive host.

VXR is the branding for the high-performance trim specification, used since 2004 for models in many of Vauxhall’s car range in the United Kingdom.
Holden also uses the VXR badge for some of its high-performance cars such as the Astra VXR and Insignia VXR.
European-sourced VXR models are produced and developed by Opel Performance Center, a division of Opel. The VXR8 is produced and developed by Holden of Australia’s HSV division. The VXR brand is closely linked to VX Racing, Vauxhalls British Touring Car Championship team, and the VXR versions of the cars are race track-styled models, with high performance capabilities.

History[edit]
The VX Racing name was first used in 2003 instead of Vauxhall Motorsport, taking part in the BTCC with cars prepared by Triple 8 Race Engineering.
The VXR badge was first launched in the summer of 2004 at the British Motor Show with enhanced consumer versions of the Monaro and VX220.[1] In 2005 the VXR range included the Astra VXR and subsequently Zafira, Vectra, Corsa, Insignia and Meriva versions.
It was launched following discussions with the Directors (K Grice, P Marshall and N Reed) and several Regional Organisers of the Vauxhall Sports Car Club – at the time the official club for owners and enthusiasts of Vauxhall performance models[2] to replace the GSi branding (which itself replaced the GTE label) which was previously used on top-end high-performance models.
Shortly after the introduction of the VXR brand, a dedicated website and discussion forum VXRonline was set up by the Directors of the Vauxhall Sports Car Club to provide technical assistance, advice, meetings and events for all owners and enthusiasts of the VXR models.
