According to the design of an architect T. Tišeckis, a beautiful estate palace of the late classicism style was built in Astrava . The interior decor, the impressive representative hall, two other halls are especially impressive. Today the palace is renovated, at the entrance there are decorative sculptures of lions made of concrete (the authentic sculptures are at the Kaunas War Museum). Near the palace a park of mixed design was created in 1862. It is surrounded by Širvena lake in the south, a big canal in the north, and ponds on other sides. The park has only local trees such as firs, limes and pines.
The palace is occupied by an administration of a private limited company “Siūlas”, the stable is turned into works, the dogbreeder's house is turned into a shop and living rooms. You can stroll around the park. Also you can look around the first store of the palace from inside. Astrava Estate can be reached by a 525 m long walking bridge over the biggest artificial Širvėna lake.

- Absolutely insane! I can't biveele people are cutting on Carol's husband and his profession. He married a hillbillie who is clueless, we all make mistakes! She belongs on that school board with the other seven idiots who refuse to recognize what is best for the students of Rochester. That is where the problem lies these asses forget that it is children that they are ultimately serving. These people lack the intellect to do what is best for Rochester. What we are dealing with are an 85 year old woman/ Evelyn Reda who hasn't got a clue as to what she had for dinner last night yet alone what is going on in that school. Then you have John Martini he also is 85, has no vested interest in the school, except for what everyone suspect goes on behind closed doors- Carolyns door. This is what everyone thinks. Why else would a somewhat intelligent, retired business man man support a jackass like her??? Most of this crap is his doing. He somehow makes the other puppets on the board vote his way. He should be ashamed of hisself, but some people just can't turn down those fringe benefits, and a little action is worth more than your dignity,and self respect.Then you have Carol- incompetent boob about sums it up. My guess is she is so stupid that she biveeles that, that comment has something to do with her breast size. She needs to think again, it has to do with her lack of intelligence- yes this is what people know about her. She just doesn't know it herself.Then you have the puppet group Calvin, Nick, and Mark- they are a bunch of overgrown children who cannot think for themselves. This group ought to be ashamed of what they have done, allowing this to happen to their children, and the school where they should be obtaining an education. They are a bunch of bumbling idiots- my guess is they either fear for what could happen to their kids, or they are just that stupid! I don't think they would stoop to John's level and be accepting warm favors from the wicked witch, one never knows .. but if one of these men were my spouse I sure would be asking, and having a dr check them for STD'sbefore I jumped in the sack with them again. Bet these idiots won't be running again- bunch of cowards! Lastly you have Tom Kaye fuuuullll of hot air!!!! I was at a school board meeting bout a year and half ago before he was on the board. I could see and hear him from another table. He rolled his eyes at the the circus he was witnessing, and criticized the clowns on the board, said just wait til I get on that board. What the hell for???? He is useless, and has been a total waste. He is the biggest idiot of all. He has been bought hook line and sinker Does whatever John tells him to do, and also says he'll vote one way then does the exact opposite. What a shame ..I for one thought he might TRY to make a difference- he only makes me wonder what is he getting out of ruining this community????The only people that do serve this community well on that board is Miss Hime , and Mr. Bower. They know at least have some insight as to what is best for the children in that school and this community.

- Nice article. I just waetnd to add a few things to the GetShopped / WP e-Commerce Plugin that you missed:- Payment Methods. We also support Authorize.net, paystation, and payment express (PX Pay & PX Fusion), and last I looked there was a community made iDeal module as well.- Members Only Access (new 2011 model)- Group Deals Plugin- UPS & USPS shipping calculators- Fedex shipping calculator- Fully automated tax Plugin via Because WP e-Commerce has the biggest open source following we're going to be spending some time this year refining our website to make collaboration better. We're working with 3 different companies on this, each with different strengths to ensure that collaborators (plugin & theme devs) can support their users via a bbPress forum and we're working to create a subversion repository that will allow developers to manage their premium gears and it'll kick ass for the users because they get support forums in one place and and they will get 1 click updates and installs. It is very exciting times for us at WP e-Commerce Plugin HQ and we're looking forward to sharing!!The reason why Cart66 powers the schwag store is because WP e-Commerce Plugin 3.8 was in beta at the time and there was an issue with our Variations which has since be fixed. Jane urgently needed to launch their store before Christmas 2010 and our new version was not ready. Cart66 is definitely not as integrated with WordPress as the new 3.8 version of WP e-Commerce Pluign or Shopp Plugin. In terms of the schwag site I guess you win some and you loose some. WP e-Commerce uses Custom Post Types for Products and has over 200 hooks and filters now (last count), Shopp is around the same, and Cart66 has something like 2 with more planned.
