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."

Will you Brits please take Victoria Beckham back? Please, please, please . . . . .

I am so very sick and tired of Posh's every move being documented by the paps. I am surprised that she does not call them when she goes to take a wee.

Victoria Beckham may be intent on boosting her profile in the States but a new TV documentary on America's NBC starring her and husband David has been shelved.

Victoria is focusing on the Spice Girls reunion and has said she won't have time to film.

"She is, however, thinking about making a documentary about the Spice Girls getting back together."

Posh insists the canning of the project has nothing to do with the poor ratings of her TV special Coming To America.

That is just a polite way of saying it bombed!!

This is a woman who won't smile because she has practiced and "perfected the art of my pout" (and that is a direct quote from her!!). Well, here in America, that comes across as snooty and aloof, not sexy. And this ain't the United Kingdom, kiddo!

Many of the restaurants they frequent are getting really tired of the paps - seems Posh calls the paps just before she leaves the house (every time!!) so they can "document" her every move.

I do not believe the the Spice Girls new tour will last very long. It will be damn near impossible to fit Posh's head through any door she will need to pass through to do the tour!! After all, she thinks that the only reason people will now come to see the Spice Girls is because of her! There is going to be some major "cat" fighting going on whle the tour lasts!

Here's hoping that Great Britain will have the "good common sense" to offer David Beckham a deal he cannot refuse to return to play for their team! Please!!!!!
