Hi all !Twinny hot and bothered!! Not only with the murky ‘ news of the day….’
But also …just
Can’t keep pace with Washington… Declared the’FITTEST’ city in USA… 3 years in a row…!
Paritosh … you not doing too badly either .. Denver Third fittest city in the US!
Everyone exercising , walking ,jogging.. the number of parks in this particularly green city encouraging physical activity!
Watched this trampoline gym video… Currently the rage… And died of exhaustion…just watching !!!
So outrageous and energetic was the jumping!!!
Americans name things simply…..
Oval Office because shape oval
Pentagon because shape pentagonal
The Monument called so ….because well …it is a monument.!
( Eiffel Tower..984ft, Qutub Minar….. 393ft… Just for reference)…
….is Special because made of stones stacked over each other without any cement…! Quite remarkable…
Dedicated to George Washington … This structure took over 100 years to make ..!
One thing in which Americans were ‘snail pace’ slow…
‘ I have a dream ‘ speech. Delivered extempore at the Lincoln memorial in Washington in 1963…..
Above are pictures of Martin Luther King Jr. , the Lincoln memorial and the gigantic statue of Abraham Lincoln inside it….
Being a slave to habit is bad
Being born a slave … A curse!
Life was just ….
Blood , sweat, toil and tears !. Unpaid labour! Unfair ! Mean! Horrific! And the denial of education…the last nail in the coffin…
Without the means to think…slaves left handicapped and helpless … For life… Here is a picture of an AUCTION BLOCK Where slaves sold …
And whipped… oh no!!
Black slaves had no choice… They denied Right to Education ….
But in nearby Pennsylvania and Ohio .. Live the ‘AMISH’ Americas Plain people… Who CHOSE NOT to be educated .. Beyond the 8th grade!!
They shun technology!
No radios, no computers, no photos ,no television, no vehicles… They use oil lamps and water heaters ( run by gas powered generators)
In this day and age!!
They spend their time in farming and carpentry ..Leading the straight and narrow life… With decidedly no frills….out of Choice!!
At age 16… is the ‘RUMSPRINGA’..Amish youth are allowed to leave the village and go forth into the real American world for 2 years..
They are allowed to choose whether they want to come back , get baptised and continue Amish way of life… Or carry on living their new life !
And guess what 90% Amish choose to do…..
Back they are to their cocooned lives to be baptised and live as before ! The old ,old-fashioned way…
Huge families with plenty of inbreeding!
Or to use a car…
Twinny in no such dilemma!!
Happy to live life livewire!!!
With radio , tv ,computer ,WA !!
Guys and gals !
Make your Choices…And know you can always change them!!
Bye …. !
… And now to get ‘Washington fit’….TIME FOR SOME SERIOUS EXCERCISE….!
See you next week!!!
