Your tree doesn't grow up because someone has cut out the top middle growth entirely. All new fronds grow out of the top middle, and if they are cut out, then the growth will be stunted. This is permanent and in the end will kill your tree. SOMETIMES the palm will shoot out more middle growth like the ones you are seeing so thank god you were one of the lucky ones and leave it like that, maybe the tree will survive longer - or, if you're truly blessed - even grow a little more.
Better alternative, is to dig and expose roots within one foot around base of palm. This is difficult, as there are a ton of stringy roots. Just expose the top of them within a foot around. What this does is allow the sun to shine on them which will promote growth of shoot-offs. Once a shoot-off starts and is healthy, cut down the main tree and nourish the shoot-off, hence it's like starting over with a new palm that is not too tall. 

Good luck, but don't forget you won't keep a stunted tree for long!

What is the difference between a growth investor and a value investor?


The difference between a growth and value investor is that growth investors look towards the future while value investors look to the past. A growth investor believes that companies growing quickly will have god returns. The investor will pay according to how high the anticipated growth is. On the other hand, a value investor looks at financial statements to figure out an intrinsic value of the stock and then compare this figure to the current price of the stock. If the current price is lower than the value then the investor will buy to raise the market place to equal the intrinsic value price. <br>

How do I fix SWR spikes?


For CB radio that operates in a relatively narrow bandwidth, you should be able to obtain "perfect" SWR readings for all 40 channels. That would be a reading of 1.1 : 1 or less.
The rule of thumb goes like this: if SWR is HIGHER on HIGHER FREQUENCY (Ch. 40 is higher than Ch. 1) then the antenna whip is too HIGH (too long/tall) therefore it must be shortenned. And vice versa.
Trimming the length requires patience especially when the reading has reached 1.5 : 1 or lower/better. Make a 5mm trim each time and then measure SWR then continue trimming until you are satisfied with the results.
The spike must be contributed by faulty electronic components inside the radio. The radio must be checked by a technician. But before you do that, trim your whip first and see what happens. Ideally, the length of the coax cable must be trimmed as well. But, since we don't live in an ideal world, we can ignore that for the time being. Goodluck. es

You also need a medium saucepan (at least 32 fl oz / 0, 9 1) to boil water. Separate carefully cut molds, as pictured. Make sure to leave a border around each mold. Also remove sharp edges from the edges with scissors.

Use a large glass measure (at least 32 fl oz / 0, 9 1) (not included) to measure 0.68 liters of water and pour into a medium-size saucepan. Heat the pan until the water boils.

4.
Pour boiling water in medium saucepan shot glass with the contents of the bag 10.
5.
Stir the mixture with the big stick until all the grains are completely dissolved chemicals. NOTE: Let the mixture cool for 5 minutes after the grains have dissolved.
6.
placed 2 rocks on the bottom base of the 5-sized plastic molds "C" of growth. These basement rocks should rise only about 3 / 4 "(2cm) from the bottom of mold growth.

Does shaving make hair grow faster?


There is no evidence to prove this. Hair growth takes place in the hair follicle so any speeding up of hair growth would be due to changes in the hair follicle.

Shaving removes the tapered end of the hair so it feels sharp and stubbly when it appears again above the skin. This can give the impression it is growing out fast.

Also, hair that has been shaved will soon become visible again giving the same impression.
When the hair on your scalp grows by a couple of millimeters you hardly notice it. When freshly shaved hair grows by the same amount you immediately notice it as it reappears above the surface of the skin.

Final word: It must be said that every individual responds to shaving differently. This is because a person's hair texture, rate of growth, and skin sensitivity are different from the next person. So give shaving time and experiment with various accessories until you find the ones that really suit you giving you a close shave with minimal damage or irritation to the skin.

I have excess coconuts growing on my tree what do I do with it?


Hi CGI,

How about Milk crates, they're heavy duty enough to hold them.

You could probably sell them to a bar that has a tropical motif to use for drink specials. I lived near a Beach Bar in Florida that did that all the time.

Use you imagination.

Have fun,
Mike
