Lake Michigan Sunset

For those who wonder, I have returned from a long journey in to the remote regions of nowhere. I found nothing, got lost and stumbled back to where I am not sure. I trust everyone got along just fine while I was un-present. For those who don't wonder, ignore this paragraph.

creative51 comments on Apr 17, 2019:
I would lean towards 3 or 2 as I live in 3. Because we have a lot of East side of the state people, 2 would be a good compromise. June 22 is Elkhart Jazz Fest, so I would prefer not that day, unless it starts at about noon. I would then stay until about 3PM and then head on down to catch the evening jazz in Elkhart. Sames goes if it is on July 13. I would come early and leave early to get to the Kalamazoo Blues Fest. All other days are ok with me. I would go to area 1 if it was not on June 22 or July 13.

If it were in the United States,I would say no, the government should not rebuild a religious building. It is in France. They can do what ever they want. I am not French. I would not want the French telling us what to do. I am an atheist. I do not want people telling me what to do. I will not, under the circumstances you are writing about, tell them what to do. There are more drastic circumstances, I would voice my opinion against what another country was doing. This does not rise to that level.

Mt Baker is very beautiful. It is also a stratovolcano, heavily glaciated, who has erupted as recently as the mid 1800's. If/when it does have a major eruption, there is likely to be major destruction, loss of life and property. But it is beautiful.

You can tell your daughter what and why you believe what you believe in. She has to make her own choices. If you forbid something you add a tabo quality to it that makes it more desirable. You can not force people to believe anything. You daughter will make up her own mind. If her thought process is not challenged at one point or another, she will really not know what her true beliefs are.

creative51 comments on Apr 13, 2019:
Great post, pictures and commentary. From about 1910 to 1928 Detroit was the Silcon Valley of its time. Fortunes were made and lots of people got very rich. Detroit fading from glory is complicated with many factors coming to bear on it. Today it really is coming back. It will never like that glory period, it is a different time, but its coming back holds many possible good opportunities. Hopefully they will be grabbed and a new and different time of wide spread prosperity will happen. Cities on major waterways and major borders tend , over time tend to do well as they are both transfer and transportation points, which lend themselves to significant economic activity. Detroit will come back. Really want to see your shots you may be taking today.
