Only when UCEBS and MOBs are involved...

You must be a thoroughly boring and relatively unpleasant person to be around in real life.

What a treat to stand in a garden of roses. Such a fine treat for the noses.

But let us not, alas, neglect the much maligned Dandelion...

So cheery is the Dandelion with its happy yellow flare. So beneficial is the Dandelion with edible roots to share.

But should you start a rose garden, then roses exclusively it must be. For such a colorful mosaic must remain Dandelion free.

What a treat to find a website with such historic ponts. For a dedicated bridge fan, it fulfills our many wants.

But thankful we are for the UCEB...

It can carry commercial trucks. Though it is never a nice spot for to pause and feed the ducks.

Yes, I love Bridgehunter for its fine trusses so fare. I come here not to see UCEBS, for which I do not care.

Of great value is this website for a historic bridge geek. I hope that this bridge can be deleted for it is MODERNE/NON-HISTORQUE.
