The British are coming, the British are coming. . . .


This is a roundabout, and this is coming to Salem Four Corners sometime in the next year or two (I hope).

When I was in college, I spent part of a year in England and came upon my first "roundabout". Odd name, but very descriptive and they are (or were - I haven't driven in Britain for awhile now) very prevalent over there. To solve the problem of those line-ups that we get especially during the summer months, or when there's an accident, at the Four Corners, the whole intersection is going to be changed.


Bad Boyz Toyz building is supposed to come down, and will become a park (much nicer view and far better use of the space!). The old general store building that has been numerous things over the years, including a gas station and more recently a Sushi Bar, is also going to be removed. That will free up the intersection space for the roundabout. The red dots you're looking at show the placed where the risk comes for accidents. In a roundabout, it comes to eight high-risk spots.

The numerous business owners at the Four Corners are also getting together to form a business association, and want to upgrade and improve their storefronts, which is great news! It will be nice to drive to (or thru, if you must) the Four Corners and see something attractive, and safe to drive around (literally...lol). Stay tuned.

  1. Olymp Trade A question that then arises is, is Bitcoin mining worth it. The answer is NO for the average person. It takes very sophisticated knowledge and a powerful computer system and this combination of factors makes it unattainable for the masses. This applies even more to bitcoin mining 2017 than in past years.

  2. Female Escorts Thus the insertion of the penis into the vagina constituted a marriage proposal and the girl was assumed to have accepted the proposal unless she screamed loudly as in a rape case. (Deuteronomy 22:25-28) If dad did not permit the marriage the guy still had to pay the bride price because his daughter, as a non-virgin now, had been devalued in the marketplace. This in itself would give the guy some cause for restraint in pursuing his sexual activities.
