Fitness. About the RAM | Ram Restaurant & Brewery. We are all about great food, ice-cold hand-crafted beer and creating memories, and we have been for over 40 years. The first RAM opened as a “Deluxe Tavern” in Lakewood, Washington on February 26th, 1971. Today the RAM is still family owned and headquartered in Lakewood. We now operate over 30 restaurants serving guests in six states – including C.B. & Potts in Colorado and C.I. Shenanigans in Tacoma, Washington. Over the years, what began as “Deluxe Taverns” have grown into the casual, family-oriented restaurants for which we are known and loved. In 1995, we began brewing our own beer and contributing to the successful evolution of the craft beer industry.

As a growing family of restaurants, we are devoted to positively impacting the communities we serve. As we approach our 44th anniversary, the future is promising.

The four seasons are determined by shifting sunlight (not heat!) —which is determined by how our planet orbits the Sun and the tilt of its axis. On the summer solstice, we enjoy the most daylight of the calendar year. Credit: NASA. Animal years. Society for Creative Anachronism, Inc. Oregon L5 Society - Introduction.

Spread of the Black Death in Europe (1346–53) The Black Death is thought to have originated in the arid plains of central Asia, where it then travelled along the Silk Road, reaching the Crimea by 1343.[6] From there, it was most likely carried by Oriental rat fleas living on the black rats that were regular passengers on merchant ships. Spreading throughout the Mediterranean and Europe, the Black Death is estimated to have killed 30–60% of Europe's total population.[7] In total, the plague reduced the world population from an estimated 450 million down to 350–375 million in the 14th century.

The aftermath of the plague created a series of religious, social, and economic upheavals, which had profound effects on the course of European history. It took 150 years for Europe's population to recover. [citation needed] The plague recurred occasionally in Europe until the 19th century. Chronology Origins of the disease European outbreak There appear to have been several introductions into Europe. Rose City Astronomers.
