Such decorations were an invariable attribute from every farmer in the distant and not very distant past, and these days it is a...

I recently found a document in which a judge from one of the US states passes a small resolution – XP Detectors filed an appeal against Minelab’s applications for using their patented technology, but the court refused them.
