Victor Schultz presents St. Peters Basilica | Michaelangelos Pieta | Pictures of the Vatican City, Rome, Italy posted at St. Peters Square, Vatican City, saying, "As you enter St. Peter’s Basilica, it is hard not to be awestruck by its vast size and sheer beauty. For example, as you walk in you will see some very large statutes to the side. While beautiful in their own right, I mention them as a reference point on the incredible size of the interior space. If you look up you will see writing and numbers that are carved into the upper wall just below the ceiling. While this text appears to be relatively small to the unaided eye, in fact the those carved letters and as tall as the large statutes you see to the sides as you enter."
Jack Clifton presents Refinishing a Redwood Deck posted at
How to Build a Deck, saying, "The problem with having a planter in the middle of a deck is that it completely chopped up the space and made the deck far less useful than it otherwise might have been.

More often than not, however, the excuse is lack of time. Ten Minute Trainer takes this excuse away from you and makes you take action."
