America in all its Glory

Mabry Mill, Blue Ridge Parkway, Virginia

What a gorgeous shot of Mabry Mill in the Blue Ridge Mountains (Virginia). Such a peaceful, serene setting.

Sitting on the edge of the water. Taking a worm and baiting it on the hook of a line that is attached to a long, thin tree branch. Gently "cast" the line into the water. Now to sit quietly, watching the dragonflies skip across the surface of the calm water. Listening to the frogs calling to one another. All the thoughts of your daily life are no longer with you - all you are thinking about at this moment is the beauty of the trees, where they simply meld into the banks of the water.

Who cares if you ever get a nibble on your line. Just to enjoy this moment that you will never live again. That is life!

Every crime committed by an illegal immigrant should never have happened!!!

Read my posting under Illegal Immigrants.

A quote from President Theodore Roosevelt addressed on immigration in 1907:

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American ... There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag ... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language ... and we have room for but one sole loyalty, and that is a loyalty to the American people."

No, that is not a mistake. That is the way it is spelled - eatZi's. I was going to do my first dining post on eatZi's, however, I hesitated when I found out that some of them had closed and needed to do a little research to make sure any of the eatZi's was still open.

Gladly, at least the original eatZi's in Dallas is still open and appears to be the one that will remain open.

Phil Romano of Macaroni Grill and Fuddruckers owns eatZi's.

I have only eaten here once (being from So. California and only getting to Dallas occasionally) and it was the location in Houston. I was very impressed with the place. I only came in for a sandwich, but it took me forever to decide what kind to have. The hardest decision was the bread. The selection is endless! I honestly cannot remember what kind I ordered, but it was outstanding.

Inside you will find a full deli where you can order sandwiches or salads to eat there or to go. There is also a grill where you can order fine steaks.

There are also shelves of fine condiments and wine. A refrigerated case holds fresh chef-crafted meals, already packaged and ready to travel including single and family portions with selections ranging from pasta to sushi to desserts and so much more.

eatZi's is located at 3403 Oak Lawn Ave., Dallas, TX - (214) 526-1515. Should you come across one in another town, stop and eat! You won't be sorry!
