Your description literally gives me chills. I am exhausted by cities and crowds and concrete jungles.

Your post caused me some nostalgia. I spent years on the banks of the Potomac. I hiked along its little start up creek through the Maryland mountains, watched from a mountain top as it crashed into the Shenandoah at Haper's Ferry, swam in it in the parks of Great Falls, rode horses along the shores in Burlington Park and dodged jellyfish where the Potomac merges with the Chesapeake on the forgotten corner of southeastern Virginia.

I miss it terribly.

I am thrilled to hear you are feeding some feral cats, and assisting some wildlife as well as providing a habitat for them.

Thank you for what you are doing for the animals.

In my youth, my family went to our cabin on the Shenandoah River. It was where my father taught me to swim at 3yo: threw me off the dock and told me I would either swim or sink (of course he was kidding since he was an avid swimmer and would have easily rescued me). I did swim and later did very well: near olympic times (low 20's in the the 50 m freestyle and high mid twenties in the backstroke). My father devoted his life to the DAV, VFW, AL etc. and founded, organized and directed (President and Judge Adv. Gen. for the state of Maryland then) their country club which included a swimming pool. Of course. We were always there.

Then, on the lawns , we would have crab feasts. Yes, even though it is not kosher to eat crabs, we all did. at 5 or 10, we always drank beer eating crabs, no one cared. LOL.
Times have certainly changed. In Providence, R.I., when I was in primary school, we would go to a real Italian spaghetti house (family friend) and drink wine with our meal, we always given wine for the holidays even in my earliest memories...

The U.S. Congress is a robot of PAC's; the AARP is bigger than AIPAC and they haven't ruined the country. The PAC's that strip mined our businesses and the economy and stuffed it all into financial institutions and foreign investments ruined the country.

Now the question turns on that: Is AARP an arm of AIPAC?

Discuss that

In reply to an earlier post on Apr 22, 2012 6:53:54 AM PDT
Lol... I don't even know how to approach that. I don't even believe that AIPAC is among the PAC's that trashed the country-- AIPAC only represents Israel, they didn't create free trade agreements with Mexico and Asia.

"I'm not sure you can say the "holocause happened" just because of "those million or so that came in from the Soviet union/elsewhere".

The response was too drastic and inhumane for a simple explanation, and yes I think the zionist explanations are simplistic and irrational."

Absolute agreement with you, you have to dumb it down for these people for them to get a glimmer of understanding, you could write an encylopaedia on the subject:
All of recorded history would be there. All books, many that have in the past been burned, all copies destroyed etc.
All you have left is sufficient, however.

I mentioned to John, an abridged volume of history from England of the 13th century, based on what has survived. You can do the same for any region and read.
Why read regurgitated and revised poppycock when the authentic sources are available. Why one requires to be spoon-fed that , I have no idea. Most are so tainted with a litany of lies and deceit to create an entirely false and distortion accounting of history. Political correct is just another word for whitewash, cover-up and blaming something other than who is truly responsible, a fall guy or self cleansing report and self-aggrandizing history.

Who did?

One of the last acts of Clinton was to grant China FTA status. Now the draft dodging Clinton also stated that if Israel was attacked, he would be tbe the first in the trenches with a gun fighting for them. Look at his cabinet, his advisors.. National Security and otherwise. <;

How long has the U.S citizens/Congress/Executive Office been subjugated by foreign interests, what since before WW1? (Federal Reserve or removed from the gold standard). It is complex, would require extensive thought and scholarly research. How much time do you have on your hands to explore it? Can you really say you have sufficient knowledge on it to render an accurate evaluation or analysis of the matter? Each year one can find clues on who is running the show. No it isn't WW1, it existed even before America's Continental Congress, even before that. Who controlled 90% of the World's money supply in the early 1800's? Do you truly think they lost control?

\\American democracy has been suffocated by the AIPAC cancer !\\

They are a problem, but even that cancer is caused by other internal issues.

If we weren't corrupt, they couldn't corrupt us.

I guess the sink or swim approach works sometimes. I never swam competitively--at least not with other people. I did swim with dolphins in the Gulf, and I had to compete with a riptide once. Somehow, I won, although I spent a very long time swimming hard and going nowhere. I wasn't sure if it would be water, exhaustion, or panic which choked me first.

I was raised on Blue crabs. I can still smell the Chesapeake's salt. We set traps and everyday took the rowboat out to collect. We also scooped them with nets along the jetties. My mom had a terrible time with the boil alive part. I was too young to really understand what was going on in there, but horrified by the scuttling sounds in the pot. At the time, that didn't stop me from eating them; no way could I do that now.

Both my mom and I now use Old Bay on our salads :)

Good job on the iris present by the way.

But if you edit your posts and add to them (I do it all the time), people might only catch it by chance, like I just did. Unless you prefer that (sometimes I do), you could always just do an additional post toward the end, that way it is more likely to be seen. Especially a lovely addition such as that, which I think should be seen.

I am glad you see past the obtuse.

Oh, my memories of the eastern shore and getting stung by the jelly fish when at a crab feast is the close as yours. Mine were in the mid 60's. Crabs are not nearly as big today, and seems the bring them in from from elsewhere. Still pretty inexpensive though in the tidewater area.. east of Richmond.
Since you know about DC, you know Fort Washington and Fort hunt (i think that is it). In the early 70's on the weekend we would go there and play softball. Times have changed. Then, we set set a Keg out as we played. I think that has been a definite no-no for a long time. I use to go to concerts at RFK, Capital center, DAR in that time.. people would come into see the great bands at RFK with coolers, even Ice packed oil barrels holding kegs.. what a loss the US has experienced in rights and privileges.

I love ice hockey (capitals). I am going though to the first home game in Baltimore when the nationals (used to be the senators) play them, have bistro seats. That is really a great deal.. tickets are like $40 each but it includes food: hot dogs, ice cream soft drinks, etc. it is down right of the 3rd base home run line, home plate tables seating four overlook the field in the box section there

You sound so nice, you give me a desire to ask to go to a crab feast with me, the best is likely Deale on the water, but Waldorf is fine. When I was at St. Inigoes and the test center, we used to have seafood bashes all the time.. a seafood paradise there.

Susanna says:
Thank you Omnimus,

I never did make it to the Waldorf, but my mom still talks about how much she loved it.

We lived for a while about one to two hours east of Richmond in the Northern Neck, Northumberland County. What a wild tract of land that was, I hope it still is.

I don't know Forts Washington or Hunt, but I did go to quite a few concerts at RFK and the Capital Center, also Merriweather Post Pavilion, concerts outside and yes, I went to the Renaissance Festivals there, lol.

Gerogetown was a hot spot when I was there, no one carded and it was still ok to drink and drive (SARCASM). Actually, the DC police were a friendly lot; I had quite a kind one escort me to the VA line when I had got a bit turned around:-o

I don't know much about ice hockey, but I do love to skate, fast.

Maybe with that lovely attitude you can star sharing your love for human beings called Jews!

I also would love you not to feed me acarrot, but allow me to live in peace the way I consider best as a Jew without your attacks.

Jeff, knows thousand times better the Tanack and Talmud that I would because he has been allowed to studied it intensively. Yet, I taught for many years Tanach and I know it as well ads Dinim- until the board decided that dinim was a waste of time. Let parents decide I love that one! Yet, when my students went the higher Yeshiva they were the only ones that knew what was a Ketubah.

I have not reviewed the chapter you want, Iam not in the great mood you woke up today, I am not feeling so well probably an infection in an upper gum. Enjoy, but think if your path is the best way to achieve what you want. Jews do have Human Rights top. even Orthodox Jews. Why don't you live and let live. Being kind to animals is just one part of you humanity, being kind to all humans should be part of your job.

Yet, we must take into account, political games and you are playing all your cards into the wrong hands. WHY?

Maybe we should practice the golden rule, every hear of it? I would be all milk and honey to you++. I care not if you+ are a jew, doesn't that truly mean you chose to follow the laws of God? Isn't the golden rule one of them?

I simply state truths that you+ do not want to hear nor discuss, and then you+ condemn its messenger.

Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."
"History repeats itself, first as tragedy, second as farce."

A mohar or a kebubah is washed away in this age, tradition might require it, but youth fades as does traditions.

That's what happens, you have an earache. Something is the cause of it. Did you find something you "heard" disturbing?

Susanna, we use to go the Bayou Club there (in the Canal Street there) and another on the main drag ..i think it was called Crazy Horse. A friend worked for law firm next to the Executive White House Office building ( Pepper, Hamilton & Scheetz, just looked it up). We had their season Capital club/Box seats when the Capitals were in town, sort of mingle with them.. at 18,19 I was dating aspiring attorneys(with JD's) ..LOL. Then again, Human Events/ACU and pre-election Reagan parties were great as well, some actually in the Rayburn building.

Hey, I remember Crazy Horse. True to its name, it was one of the wilder ones. There was another one down the street and on the other side, but I can't remember the name. They charged an insanely high cover charge and didn't allow anyone in who was wearing jeans, unless you bought your way in. It was a favorite hangout for the Saudi Arabian "princes" who were flooding into the area.

It sounds like you had quite the time with your connected friend. No wonder you still like ice hockey.

I'm betting you know where Langley is. Have you been to the strategically and mysteriously located Claude Moore Historical Farm at Turkey Run? You have to turn off Georgetown Pike onto a road that has no name, no number, no speed limit, and doesn't really exist. Left to the park, right to the CIA :-0

No My gum does hurt. It is where they put an tooth implant and maybe that is infected.

Nothing that i have heard disturbs me. More of what I read disturbs me.

Just feed carrot to the lovely deer. I don't get near to them due to the fact that they have ticks, and one of them made a mess of me in the 1990s. I love them from afar.

NO, not mohar, but just Ketubah with a civil prenup this way no Agunot.

well, i drive it all the time from where I live into dc when I go. It's name is george washington parkway if you are talking about the one on the south side of the river (the one with the now Bush CIA center), the one on the other side is called river road. (oops, yes..langley Va.. not the AF base , Langley park.).
It has been awhile since i ventured that far off. I use to go down to different way, depending where I was heading. Sometime through Bethesda and other times on
G.W. Memorial pkwy. Its' been 30 years since I traveled Georgetown Pike ( I either came in to DC from Oldtown, Alexandria or across the bridge through baltimore annapolis Pkwy, depending where I lived at the time).
[Excuse my typing, I need to get a new keyboard.. no tactile feedback and I should be more careful.. i type too fast and then often do not proofread... too busy] mistake on what langley it was..LOL
**BTW, langley is in Newport news, near virginia Beach/Norfolk..quite aways away. **
