  • A window blind is a type of window covering which is made with slats of fabric, wood, plastic or metal that adjust by rotating from an open position to a closed position by allowing slats to overlap. A roller blind does not have slats but comprises a single piece of material.
  • UpWindow treatment featuring vertical vanes that can be swiveled open and closed or opened in either a split or one-way stack.
  • Strips of fabric [louvres] suspended vertically from a headrail. Immensely practical blind which comes into it's own on larger sizes
  • Be of (a specified size or degree)
  • Ascertain the size, amount, or degree of (something) by using an instrument or device marked in standard units or by comparing it with an object of known size
  • (measure) any maneuver made as part of progress toward a goal; "the situation called for strong measures"; "the police took steps to reduce crime"
  • (measure) how much there is or how many there are of something that you can quantify
  • Ascertain the size and proportions of (someone) in order to make or provide clothes for them
  • measurement: the act or process of assigning numbers to phenomena according to a rule; "the measurements were carefully done"; "his mental measurings proved remarkably accurate"

The Arctic Wolf (Canis lupus arctos), also called Polar Wolf or White Wolf, is a mammal of the Canidae family, and a subspecies of the Gray Wolf. Arctic Wolves inhabit the Canadian Arctic, Alaska and the northern parts of Greenland. Though the same species as a Gray Wolf, Arctic Wolves generally are smaller than the "Forest Gray Wolves" (Arctic Wolves are sometimes called "Tundra Wolves"), being about 0.9 to 1.8 m (35 to 71 in) long including the tail, with the head and body measuring between 1 to 1.5 m (39 to 59 in); males are larger than females and are more aggressive. Their shoulder heights vary from 0.63 to 0.79 m (25 to 31 in), shorter than other wolf subspecies of similar mass, their ears are smaller to trap body heat and their muzzles are much shorter. The males weigh between 34 to 46 kg (75 to 100 lb) and females between 36 to 38 kg (79 to 84 lb) but may fall in the 45 to 70 kg (99 to 150 lb) range. During the winter, the Arctic Wolf grows a second layer of fur for protection during the harsh conditions that may occur during the season. Arctic Wolves are smaller than other wolves and have long, thick white fur. Like other wolves, they have strong jaws with sharp teeth, including long canine teeth which tear flesh. Wolves have very good eyesight, acute hearing, and a keen sense of smell which help them hunt.The Arctic Wolf is able to withstand sub-zero temperatures for years. They can also survive up to five months of absolute darkness a year, and can live weeks without food. The Arctic Wolf is one of the few mammals that can withstand the conditions of arctic weather. Arctic Wolves usually travel in small packs as small as two and as large as twenty. When the female wolf is pregnant, she will leave the pack in order to dig herself a den to raise her pups. Although, if the layer of ice is too thick, she will move to a den or cave. The pups are born both blind and deaf, weighing at one pound. They are dependent on their mother for food and protection. There can be 3-12 puppies in a litter. When they are three weeks old, they are allowed outside of the den. Some other wolves in the pack might take care of the mother’s pups until she arrives back with food. The Arctic Wolf inhabits the northern part of Greenland, the Canadian Arctic and parts of Alaska. They have lived in North America for more then 2 million years. When they find a den they make a couple of chambers for food and young. Arctic wolves live on the islands of the Canadian Arctic, and the north coast of Greenland, roughly north of 70° North latitude. Their world is extremely harsh as well as remote, and few scientists venture into that world during the long, dark winter - even the vast majority of Inuit live further south than the Arctic wolf. As a result, the details of their lives through much of the year are virtually unknown.

This view helps show the long hair from the back. Notice the missing piece from the vertical blinds-that was Marianne's handiwork. The piece got broken and will not stay up anymore! This reminds me somewhat of when I played with my father's tape measures. Do you know what it looks like at the end of a tape measure? Probably not. But I do. Don't try it. They do not go back together very well. But if you do, make sure you do it on the big 50 foot kind. This pleases Grandpa the most!
