        Yeah, and after Hillary banged that reset button Russia was allowed to embark on a monster military rearmament modernization program, with the help of US uranium, while our military R&D monies were heavily diverted to feeding, clothing, housing and otherwise pampering illegal Latino andbpotential jihadi immigrants.

            Curious – which site was it? Honestly, I get nothing from any site I recommend, I just pass along sites I’ve had good sales experiences with and wouldn’t hesitate to buy from myself again.

      Yeah, considering just the Moslem history of the last 100 years stripping, raping and humiliating women is only permitted when a devout Moslem encounters a non-Moslem woman. Let’s see….from what the Moslem Ottomans did to the Christian Armenian women for years to what ISIS is doing to them today, anyone see anything that says civilized behavior toeards non-Moslems, especially women, is in their toolbox?

    Okay, a question for all: is anyone here familiar with vacuum sealing food (in jars and otherwise)? If so, what equipment do you recommend? Money is a bit of an object, but getting reliable and hopefuly easy-to-use equipment is more important.

    So, I got my book in yesterday. “The true George Washington – Ford (1896)”
    Amazing book.

    Here is the E-Copy:
    https://archive.org/details/truegeorgewashin01ford


    In this connection Washington’s sentiments on slavery as an institution may be glanced at. As early as 1784 he replied to Lafayette, when told of a colonizing plan, **The scheme, my dear Marqs., which you propose as a precedent to encourage the emancipation of the black people of this Country from that state of Bondage in wch. they are held, is a striking evidence of the benevolence of your Heart. I shall be happy to join you in so laudable a work ; but will defer going into a detail of the business, till I have the pleasure of seeing you.” A year later, when Francis Asbury was spending a day in Mount Vernon, the clergyman asked his host if he thought it wise to sign a petition for the emancipation of slaves. Washington replied that it would not be proper for him, but added, ” If the Maryland Assembly discusses the matter ; I will address a letter to that body on the subject, as I have always approved of it.”
    When South Carolina refused to pass an act to end the slave-trade, he wrote to a friend in that State, *’ I must say that I lament the decision of your legislature upon the question of importing slaves after March 1793. I was in hopes that motives of policy as well as other good reasons, supported by the direful effects of slavery, which at this moment are presented, would have operated to produce a total prohibition of the importation of slaves, whenever the question came to be agitated in any State, that might be interested in the measure.” For his own State he expressed the ‘* wish from my soul that the Legislature of this State could see the policy of a gradual Abolition of Slavery ; it would prev’t much future mischief” And to a Pennsylvanian he expressed the sentiment, ** I hope it will not be conceived from these observations, that it is my wish to hold the unhappy people, who are the subject of this letter, in slavery. I can only say, that there is not a man living, who wishes more sincerely than I do to see a plan adopted for the abolition of it ; but there is only one proper and effectual mode by which it can be accomplished, and that is by legislative authority ; and this, as far as my suffrage will go, shall never be wanting.
    …”

    Stella, I have company so I’ve been busy but I love the Chicago pictures. I remember going to the top of the John Hancock Center often as a child and as a young adult. I miss the city that once was Chicago 😦 My friend and I used to go to a Jewish Deli there when we were young teenagers, e’d look at all the specialty shops with things we couldn’t afford and then we would to the observation deck, then one of the museums or the Art Institute, then we’d go to Lake Michigan and talk about how much better the world would be if everyone just thought like a couple of teenage girls πŸ™„.

    So many good memories.

      We share some of the same memories – except I’m a bit older than you are. The Hancock wasn’t built yet when I was a teen. When I was attending classes downtown, I spent many happy hours at the Art Institute between class and the late train.

        Remember how cheap it used to be to go up into the Hancock Center?

        I do remember the Sears Tower being built, in fact one of my friend’s dads was a construction worker there and he would tell us grand stories that I didn’t realize were really mostly tall tales until I was much older πŸ€”.

        It will always be home to me until they burn it to the ground.

          I never go to the observation deck at Hancock – I go to the bar/restaurant instead, order a cocktail, and have just as lovely a view. The ladies’ room has a complete glass wall looking south.

            I will try that some time. I don’t go to Chicago anywhere near as much as I used to go. I’ve been up in the Hancock once in the last couple of years. Now you can pay ($40.00 ?) to get a “professional picture of yourself on the observation desk with the view of the city behind you 😏. And people were paying it. I was thinking, folks take a picture with your phone, though now that I’m thinking about it I think it had something printed on the picture like “I visited John Hancock Center.” πŸ™„

              I haven’t been in a couple of years – and my daughter is nagging me to visit. These days they are all busy – the boys are older now – and she’s very busy at work, so I just wait until they visit me.

              Both my daughter and SIL work in the Aon tower, so they aren’t fascinated by big buildings. Jen gets great pics of Millennium Park and the lake from her windows. She’s down there two days a week, and at home the rest of the week.

                Nice. Millennium Park is nice when it isn’t packed, most often it is packed with people. We were just talking about how the Milwaukee skyline pales in comparison to the Chicago skyline.

              It looks really neat! I’ll go next time I’m there and it is open until 10pm and 11 pm so it makes it easy to get there later in the day and enjoy the city lights. Thanks! I think my daughter has been there and wanted to go one of the times I was there but it was closed by the time we would have headed that way after a Hawks game.

              I’m excited about checking it out.
