Palm Sunday Celebrated by Christians

Posted: 13 Apr 2014 11:33 PM PDT

Palm Sunday is the start of the Holy Week and marks the entrance of Jesus Christ to Jerusalem. This is where his followers held palms to wave in the entrance of Christ to Jerusalem.

In the Philippines, people create and prepare various designs of palms to sell. As the photos show, the children display the created palms of their elders for sale. It shows how the plams are created with coconut leaves.

This also starts the holy week and will end on Easter Sunday, the celebration for the risen Jesus Christ.

Indian raid re-enacted during Bardstown Colonial Days

Posted: 13 Apr 2014 05:20 PM PDT

The sun had finally come out to warm the city of Bardstown. Colonists were enjoying the afternoon on the town green along the river. Children were playing in the grass. The small waterfall by the mill sounded peaceful enough, but masked the sound of an approaching enemy force.
Without warning, shots rang out and an Indian party swooped down on the unsuspecting villagers. Fierce hand-to-hand fighting erupted. Colonists were killed and others were captured. Women and children were dragged away screaming. Those captured were taken back to the Indian camp and forced to run the gauntlet.
Just another day on the Kentucky frontier at Colonial Days in Bardstown. All this weekend, re-enactments like this take place at Old Bardstown Village.
Metalsmiths, leather crafters, surveyors, story tellers, musicians and more are all in authentic 18th century garb, using the tools and techniques actually used during the period.
Organized entirely by volunteers from the re-enactor community, this is the fourth annual event.

Talk is cheap and advice is only 25 cents!

Posted: 13 Apr 2014 02:32 PM PDT

As I was doing errands today, I detoured through Union Square Park to enjoy the great weather.

On a sunny, warm day like today it seems like everyone is outdoors in the city. The sidewalks are jammed and parks are bustling with activity. After such a relentless winter, people just want to be outdoors to enjoy the spring temps and sunny sky.

Weekends bring all kinds of happenings to just about any given park in NYC. It could be anything from entertainers to Hari Krishna groups to protesters.

Today advice was being offered for the bargain price of 25 cents. It appears that a couple was having an intense conversation with one of the advice givers, while another sidewalk therapist was vying for customers.

DC Cherry Blossoms

Posted: 13 Apr 2014 10:45 AM PDT

The Cherry Blossoms bloomed late last week. My sister and I headed to the Tidal Basin before dawn on Friday 11 April for a sunrise with the blossoms. It was unbelievably beautiful, and a dream for this amateur photographer.

Sesenta días de protestas en Venezuela

Posted: 13 Apr 2014 10:24 AM PDT

El día sábado 12 de abril se marcó en el calendario como una jornada violenta al cumplirse sesenta días de manifestaciones y protestas en Venezuela.

 

El intentó de los estudiantes de marchar hasta Plaza Venezuela desde 3 puntos distintos de la ciudad fue truncado una vez más por la Policía Nacional Bolivariana degenerando en violentos enfrentamientos.

 

Destacó en la jornada el amplio despliegue Policial en toda la ciudad y la irreverencia de los jóvenes manifestantes.

 

También resaltó un hecho particular, un joven en su desesperación al intentar escapar de la Policía, se arrojó al rio Guaire, el más contaminado de la ciudad, el joven suplicaba por ayuda al no poder salir por la rivera que le conduciría a la libertad cuando sorpresivamente otro manifestante se arrojó al rio y tomados de la mano caminaron gritando consignas de libertad.

 

Varias detenciones sucedieron en las Zonas de Bello Monte donde sucedió el mayor enfrentamiento de la jornada.

My Favorite Soldier and My Favorite Marine

Posted: 13 Apr 2014 06:50 AM PDT

This is a picture of my husband Chief Warrant Officer 4 Timothy Pippen and my nephew Marine Tyler Brooks at Tyler's graduation from the Marine Corp boot camp. We flew in from South Korea to congratulate him on successfully completing boot camp and stand in for his mother, MSgt Tibetha Pascal, United States Air Force could not be there because she was deployed to Kuwait. We lost his father John Bolen, my brother, in 1998 due to asthma; he was also a Marine. Tyler followed in his father's footsteps and is the fourth consecutive generation "Bolen" to proudly serve in the military. My husband will celebrate 25 years in the US Army in a few months the same year that Tyler joined. We are so proud that he is upholding the family tradition of serving this great nation.

The Fabric of Our Lives

Posted: 12 Apr 2014 10:10 PM PDT

My "Wonder Years' were in the 60's and 70's, some of my greatest memories. Besides the wild side of the 60's, there were the traditions. These are our Christmas pictures from 1965. My parents and grandparents were always dressed for the occasion. I remember thinking how beautiful my mother and grandmother were (you still are Mom). Look at the hair and clothing, hair up, teased, narrow tie, wrist watch, glasses, jewelry, holiday vest, and cigarette in hand. We kids were dressed in red velvet with black patent leather shoes. But look around the room. The white flocked Christmas tree, the black and gold couch, "Easy Bake Oven", the encyclopedias proudly displayed on the bookshelf, with the family bible on top.
My parents protested the war (even though dad served), boycotted lettuce and grapes (they supported Cesar Chavez and the United Farm Workers), and walked the picket lines (Dad worked for the LA Times and walked the picket line with the striking workers at the Herald Examiner). They were pro-union, believed in the little guy and struggled financially, but they always made sure we looked nice for that special occasion. Those were the days that shaped who I am today and will forever be etched in my memory. Thank you Mom for filling our lives with those treasures.

Butler values from the 60's

Posted: 12 Apr 2014 08:39 PM PDT

I was born in 1963, and I had everything. This included Love, Shelter and Family, instead of money we had value. This value is never decreasing, and the weight gets heavy, but I cannot falter. For I am the last in this picture. The duty and honor of carrying the name is down to a few. These are the lessons that I learned being part of the Butler family which included Joseph, Josephine, Gwendolyn, Paul and Michael (myself). This picture was snapped in the 60"s, when girls wore pigtails and little boys wore western cowboy outfits with two shooting irons on his hip.

Posted: 11 Apr 2014 10:14 PM PDT

the absolute best of times in the 1960s and some of the worst...........the music just came in waves over the radio with really good good lyrics and vocals.............u did not get on the radio back them unless u could sing like an angel...a few exceptions..........how lucky i was to be 13 when the Beatles performed on Ed Sullivan and 19 when they called it quits; every song and every Beatle album set the tone for us...........we really molded ourselves from their very spirit; how lucky to be a teen then
