This is a special notice from NDTC to farmers, ranchers, and landowners.

Fall is the time of year when there is an increase in the burning of ditches and sloughs. We understand the reasons for these controlled burns; however, there is great potential for costly damages and service interruptions when telephone terminals are in the area being burned. Please take a few minutes before you burn to check for any terminals in the area to be burned and either spade up the ground or do a small controlled burn around the terminal to keep the most intense heat from damaging the contents within the terminal. We appreciate the extra time you spend to help NDTC keep costs and unnecessary service interruptions down. Thank you for your cooperation.

Answer: To find things more easily on Pinterest, you can use the site's Guided Search feature. It's a great way to sift through Pinterest's 750 million boards and 30 billion pins to find just the right ideas.

Pinterest's Guided Search works like this:
  • Type your search term into Pinterest's search bar and you'll see "Guides" pop up, which will help you find keywords to add to your search. Guides are scrollable — just click on the arrow at the far right of your display to see additional options.
  • When you click a Guide, you'll automatically add it to your original search query. Then a fresh set of Guides will appear under the search bar, and you can continue selecting more keywords to narrow your focus.

  • Guided Search is especially valuable as a visual search engine for inspiration.
