Found in Washington DC.
I found Ladybug Rock from Anne Arundel County, Maryland in Washington DC and she decided has made her way to West Virginia. She is currently keeping company with Greenbrier County, West Virginia's "I <3 Grumpy Rock.

It will be interesting to see if they manage to stay together for the rest of the journey or where they will land.

Deni and I met at Trinity Lutheran Church which has a no frills hostel for activist groups. We had the church hall, kitchen, and shower facilities. There were also mats and it's not so bad when you put two of together.

We spent that evening planning, making signs, and fellowship. The next day consisted of walking to the metro, commuting to the FERC Building, holding protest signs going through the check point to attend the FERC meeting and getting escorted out of the building.

Next, we hiked over to the Senate building. Deni and I had appointments with our Senators both on opposite sides of the two buildings. It was an exhausting day.

We hike to the Metro to St. Stephens & the Incarnation Episcopal church. we were welcome to use the very thin mats on the pews on the HARD marble floors in the sanc·tu·ar·y. I might have considered it a great adventure in an earlier decade but my 60 plus year old body was screaming "No FiretrUCKING Way!"

I am so glad that my 60 plus year old girlfriend was in agreement when I suggested that we Uber it over to International Guest House for tea with the Mennonites. There was a nice comfortable bed with nice clean sheet along with a European style breakfast in the morning.

I would have woken up thinking I was haunting my own wake if by great miracle I managed to actually fall asleep in that Sanctuary.

Last week, my Quaker girlfriend sent me a message. She is very active with SAYMA Earthcare and I try to be a supportive friend. She was in Maryland visiting grandbabies but received a message about a pending protest. She immediate set up appointments with our Senators and asked if I wanted to meet her in DC. So I booked a train.

I stayed at a Hostel for a few day but moved to Trinity Lutheran Church when the organizing started. We stayed on mats on the floor of the Church but it was actually quite comfortable.

We made protest signs which is actually fun and the next morning bee bopped over to the FERK meeting. Homeland security was there. The protest was not as big as they anticipated. Deni and I were asked, "Are you willing to go to jail? We both agreed "No FiretrUCKING way! People get arrested for disruptive protesting - They spend two hours in a holding tank and are told to pay $50 and if they behave themselves for six months - the charges are dropped. It's a win/win for them because they get money.

There was a meeting in the FERC building. They had a list and the known troublemakers went into the 'OVERFLOW" room. The Security check was very intense. I have less trouble getting into the Senate Buildings. They opened my make-up bag even the mascara tube. Nevertheless, Deni and I made it into the regular meeting room. The room was surround by police.I actually thought the meeting was interesting but suddenly folks were singing "We shall overcome" a few folks were yelling and being dragged out. Deni and I were not disruptive but we opted to leave anyway. I suspect that we made the "Overflow" room list regardless.

Next was the march to the Senate Building where Deni and I Actually had appointments with our Senators.

I did not put a Hillary sticker on my car for concerns that my car would be egged or the tires flatten. West Virginia is full of deployables. My strategy was to support the state and local less controversial candidates who will ultimately have more influence than POTUS regardless.

I find it amusing that some folks are trying to put a political spin on the recent natural disasters. I don't care about a person's color, religion, culture or politics - I just want them safe. I donated $$$$$ to the Church that sheltered my Texas cousin. She voted for Trump. I don't care, I just want her and her four children to be safe and they are. I didn't even ask the black mother in Florida who she voted for when I sent her money. I wanted her and her children to be safe and they are.

Last year we had our own natural disaster in West Virginia. My neighbor were Trump supporters but they needed food, cleaning supplies, and water. It became my mission to get it for them. I was at a church loading up supplies in my car. There was a truck with a Trump Sticker. The redneck driving the truck was also loading up supplies to deliver to those in need.

My Mission suddenly became easier - when a group of folks from the United Church of God from Marshall County, West Virginia drove into the parking lot. They quickly and efficiently delivered cases of water to everyone. I have a sneaking suspicion that none of these folks had a "Hillary for President" sticker on their cars. I simply said "Thank You!" and gave them a High Five on FB.

Thus far this year, I have been to Washington DC four times. I was not planning to go back until November. Earlier this week, I got an e-mail from my EarthCare Quaker Activist girlfriend. There is an anti-FERK rally and lobbying adventure. The train trip is booked for a bargain price of $32. I am leaving Sunday. Does anybody have any messages of LOVE that I can pass along to TRUMP? (No profanity allowed)

The 1000 Year Flood - June 2016 - West Virginia
Posted:Sep 1, 2017 12:58 am
Last Updated:Sep 2, 2017 1:09 pm

The recent flooding in Texas takes me back to the experiences with the West Virginia Floods last year. Ironically, I had been in Baltimore the day before. I was tempted to stay a few more days. My car was parked at the Amtrak station. My car would have been floating down the river if I had opted to stay.

I went to a DAR potluck at the end of the county. When I returned to my car, I heard on the radio about Flood Warning. I pondered on rather to stop at Wal-Mart before heading home but remembered how crazy stores can be before a storm. Hindsight is 20/20 but I should have headed directly to Rhema Christian Center instead of home.

Driving home was a surreal experience. The water was getting higher and higher while the road was falling apart around me. I barely made it home in the nick of time.
There were so many close calls and coincidences that confirmed that God was listening to me. I talked to him quite a bit on the drive home.

I live on top of a hill but I watches the water rushing down the community below. What a mess. We had no water or power but I was grateful to be able to sleep in my own bed. I found bottles of water on my patio chair. My landlord was doing what he could. I remembered the housebound seniors in my apartment need water. The roads were a mess. The road I took home was completely closed. I stopped at Wal-Mart. No Water. I stopped at IGA and was able to buy water. I decide to go on to Rhema Christian Center. The Coast Guard was there along with several volunteers. I told them the situation with the Seniors in my apartment and they load my trunk AND the back of the car with Water.

That was my mission for the next two weeks. Thank God for the Faith Community. These disasters frequently bring out the best in people.

A LIBERAL'S Prospective of the Shaming of Pastor Joel Osteen
Posted:Aug 29, 2017 11:16 am
Last Updated:Sep 1, 2017 12:26 am

Thus far, I have been called a racist, a white apologist and a civil war fanatic for defending the Constitution. Now I have been officially declared "a defender of hypocrisy."

Television evangelist Osteen has received some really nasty tweets and FB remarks for not immediately opening up his megachurch, that was converted from an arena that seats over 16,000, to the thousands of people that have been displaced by flooding following Hurricane Harvey.

Granted, Megachurches are not my forte. I am very happy with my humble Quaker Meeting that gets together at the local library on Sundays. The best that we could do was support the organizations that were better equipped to help the flood survivors from last year's Thousand Year Flood in West Virginia.

There are folks who are quick to criticize people of faith and hypocrite seems to be the favorite term. Nonetheless, People from various faiths certainly stepped in to help our devastated West Virginia community.

Perhaps some folks don't realize what a major league undertaking is required to open up a church to house that many people. Joel Osteen may be the pastor of Lakewood Church but he is not necessarily the boss. There is a board that he is accountable to. There is also local ordinances and safety regulations that have to be followed. There could be flooding or the potential flooding. There are safety, security and sanitation issues

Houston doesn't need a repeat of the Astrodome scenerio in New Orleans. People were without food, water, sanitation supplies, medicine and vulnerable people became crime victims.

Maybe the best way that Lakewood can help the flood victims is to support the resources that are better equipped to help them. It is my observation that Texas is doing an excellent job of helping themselves. We need to quit taking their inventory.

Just my not so humble opinion!!!
