Grace -- water IS the "engine" in most (if not all) "sinkholes". Underground mining is a factor in some of them. Water can be in play for some of those as well.
For the vast majority of sinkholes, it's water working on bedrock.

Yes I knew that, could hear the 'experts' discussing it,
but then I began to think..
why so.. don't sinkholes develop in the sea lol

nuff water for 'em there..
and all those poor cowboys from the great movies who had to
sweat bucketfuls .. when released from jail - whilst digging dusty hard ground-looking for
their hidden treasures Ha ha!

Thanks DW and for the link

El,
Thanks for your post
did you happen to see this SUCH a tragedy,
it happened in Wales but happens everywhere...
at different times.

I made a fervent promise .. ages ago,that my dog and my [new born]
grandchild will not be in the same room even for a minute.

It's not fair to the child [stating the blinding obvious..]
and neither is it fair to the dog,
as you have got to 'think' like a dog,
and understand they seldom see a human that size with a high pitched cry,
so, as far as A DOG is concerned, it could be a squeaking rabbit. fox, chicken etc
and his instinct says

GO FOR IT!

So sad for ALL concerned.,
I CAN ONLY IMAGINE THE HEARTACHE.

<quoted text>Something CRAZY, my great-grandfather was the constable of Marion when that happened. My grandfather was a young boy and though told to stay home when his father got wind of it and left to try to stop it, he snuck off on his bike to follow him, and almost witnessed his father coming to his end, too. Great-grandpa resigned the next day, and it haunted him until his death. Ironic, that they lived in the home my great grandmother was born in, in 1899; and that house was built by her family in 1844, and a part of the Underground Railroad. It was on the National Register of Historic Places, until it burned down in the late 90s.
Most interesting bit of family history Paise, thanks.
I checked my 'Shoebox' in ancestry.com and confirmed what I thought and that is
relatives on my maternal line had emigrated to Canada from ireland, and at a later
date (1870) moved to Marian, Indiana, Indianopolis, where my ancester was a
Real Estate Agent and his youngest aged 5 in the 1870 census was born in Marian,
no doubt his descendants are still there.

The saddest thing Grace.

An animal 'expert' was saying on the news earlier, that this breed
are quite gentle, but during the time of the pregnancy of the mother,
their personalities can change, but they have two older children
apparently so the dogs are used to children.

How on earth would a parent get over such a tragedy.....one can
only hope that others have learnt by their loss, and such a loss, a
beautiful baby girl. Rule of thumb, NEVER leave a child unsupervised with
an animal, any animal. Easy in hindsight.

Great post El..

KUDOS.

Indeed, I dono' HOW they will EVER get over it..

having a 2 week old baby
grand child,
she was in my arms the other night, my son ...

[from exhaustion]

lay asleep on the couch..
mother asleep IN BED taking a hugely deserved rest..

All this gave the *ole Grace Nerissa* time to study the newborn in detail..
and I noticed the finger nails were the size of a FULL STOP you'd put at the
end of a paragraph... ONLY wonderful..
combined with true sadness for the parents who lost the sweet angel/babe
in the dog attack.

CANNOT IMAGINE ....

Well gosh Slack I hope that never happens to you! We lived in a town like that in southwestern Indiana for about 4 years...my dad had three sons moving into adolescence, we moved.

Very interesting for a family connection to history, Paisley.
With a little more research, one might find several random (or are they?) connections in life's web -- an x degrees of separation:
The author of Strange Fruit, inspired by the lynching photograph:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abel_Meeropol
Abel Meeropol (February 10, 1903 - October 30, 1986) was an American writer, teacher[1] and song-writer, best known under his pseudonym Lewis Allan and as the adoptive father of the young sons of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg.[2]
The photographer:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lawrence_Beitler
Lynching photos were made into postcards to show off civic pride and white supremacy, but the tortured bodies and grotesquely happy crowds ended up angering and revolting as many as they scared. The photo sold thousands of copies, which Beitler stayed up for 10 days and nights printing them.
>>> Every time you hear Bob Dylans somewhat hard-to-listen-to Desolation Row, the first line you heard is Theyre selling postcards of the hanging, inspired by the above photo [no primary source for this though -- but it's plausible: DW]
Thanks for sharing, how interesting. I knew of the circumstances of the lynching, but had never even seen the photograph, and wasn't aware of the connections to Strange Fruit, nor Desolation Row, though familiar with both songs.
Gonna have to ask my grandpa more about that night, while he's still around.

Glad to see you made it one piece Paise.....and what a 'send off' y'all gave this gent.
Thanks so much for sharing.
My friend in the RW lost her husband recently, a truly lovely man, she sent me the
'Order of Service' as the weather was such we could not travel to Lancashire in
time for the funeral, the roads being flooded.
It is quite beautifully done, and has place on my dresser. They chose 'Memories are made
of This' sung by Dean Martin, and 'Softly as I leave you', Frank Sinatra.
It is a hard time for those left behind.
How poignant, those songs for a funeral. The only thing that scares me about getting older, the prospect of becoming a widow. These ladies have been with their husbands much longer than I've been alive; in comparison I've only been with Hubby about 20 years and I couldn't imagine life without my buddy.
