For Christian American readers of this blog:

I wish to incite all Christians to rise up and take back the United States of America with all of God's manifold blessings. We want the free allowance of the Bible and prayers allowed again in schools, halls of justice, and all governing bodies. We don't seek a theocracy until Jesus returns to earth because all men are weak and power corrupts the very best of them.
We want to be a kinder and gentler people without slavery or condescension to any.

The world seems to be in a time of discontent among the populace. Christians should not fear. God is Love, shown best through Jesus Christ. God is still in control. All Glory to our Creator and to our God!

A favorite quote from my good friend, Jack Plymale, which I appreciate:

"Wars are planned by old men,in council rooms apart. They plan for greater armament, they map the battle chart, but: where sightless eyes stare out, beyond life's vanished joys, I've noticed,somehow, all the dead and mamed are hardly more than boys(Grantland Rice per our mutual friend, Sarah Rapp)."

Thanks Jack!

I must admit that I do not check authenticity of my posts. If anyone can tell me of a non-biased arbitrator, I will attempt to do so more regularly. I know of no such arbitrator for the internet.

Eating in the fifties ... Thx Judi C!

I know, you're all too young to remember these things!!
Pasta had not been invented. It was macaroni or spaghetti. 
Curry was a surname. 
A take-away was a mathematical problem. 
Bananas and oranges only appeared at Christmas time. 
All chips were plain. 
Oil was for lubricating, fat was for cooking. 
Tea was made in a teapot using tea leaves and never green. 
Cubed sugar was regarded as posh. 
Chickens didn't have fingers in those days. 
None of us had ever heard of yogurt. 
Healthy food consisted of anything edible. 
Cooking outside was called camping. 
Seaweed was not a recognized food. 
'Kebab' was not even a word, never mind a food. 
Sugar enjoyed a good press in those days, and was regarded as being white gold. 
Prunes were medicinal. 
Surprisingly, muesli was readily available. It was called cattle feed. 
Pineapples came in chunks in a tin; we had only ever seen a picture of a real one. 
Water came out of the tap. If someone had suggested bottling it and charging more than gasoline for it, they would have become a laughing stock. 
The three things that we never ever had on/at our table in the fifties... was elbows, hats and cell phones
