#WhereIsPalestineActually ♥50 facts about me ♥ Featuring Hannah Ziad

#WhereIs PalestineActually

Thanks to United States Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib we are finally getting a chance to see the beauty of Palestine and meet some of the lovely people.

On a recent trip one ended up falling in love with the place--the countryside, the people, the delicious food..........

Finally we are seeing Palestine in the news.

Talking about the people and getting on with the chores of daily living.

Thanks to Congress Woman Rashida Tlaib we finally are having a glimpse of families struggling to get food and water each day, shower and send their kids off to school within the restrictions of the Israeli government.

We learned on our trip with Bike Palestine traveling around can be an issue.

Just taking a shower can be a problem in some areas.


Cycling The Countryside of Palestine

Go To Palestine--Ride a Bike--Get a Dog


Just wanted to let everyone know about an upcoming bike trip to Palestine.

I have been on it two times and it is a unique way to experience the Holy Land
and meet the very friendly folks of Palestine. George Snow runs the 8 day trip
two times a year and he has a special ability to make everyone feel included
regardless of their skills on a bike.

There is a van carrying extra bikes and plenty of water and one can ride at any time.
Some went on the tour for biking--there are some steep hills---and part of our group
went on the trip for religious, political or history reasons. My thing--the food is delicious
and I loved seeing the beautiful resorts, The Jordan river and The Dead Sea, etc. We
joined another bike group and toured the streets of Jericho along with the kids from a
local school. Just couldn't stand not seeing the issues of the Middle East for myself and
this was a perfect way to do it.

The terrain reminds me of Julian with Olive groves and almond orchards instead of apples.
We also visited the Taybeh brewery. The Banksy Museum and The Walled Off hotel in Bethlehem
is an eye opener. the next trip is in Sept. George is in Italy and he loves to answers questions.
The trip is also through the Siraj Center in Bethlehem. And by the way can you please stop
at the animal shelter of Diana George Babish in Bethlehem and bring home a dog as you
get ready to head out. I have a ton of pictures and here is a post from George

George is an excellent source of information as he has been teaching in Palestine for several years.

Square Dance in San Diego: Ruffles and Beaus

Square Dance in San Diego

Ruffles and Beaus Square Dance Club meets every Sunday evening at 5:30 PM at The War Memorial Building in Balboa Park in San Diego, California.

Ken Shelby is the caller. 

"Sea of Love" is one of his best songs.

It is quite obvious Ken enjoys calling and singing and he never minds taking time to patiently explain the calls to anyone who asks.  It seems like he just wants everyone to love square dance.

Al Franken For President

Dear Al, 

Just wondering if you could throw your 

hat in and run for president. 


someone was saying on a news reel that no one is 

big enough to go against trump's "show" and 

unfortunately that is probably true. 

It is not about 

politics or intelligence or policy, it is more about 

withstanding his boxing match and running to 

watch the fight. 

Everyone can hear trump but not 

everyone can hear a politician with big words. 

comedian cuts through all of this. Remember your 

friend bill o' could turn into the same 


Think about may be the one person 

who could effectively go up against him--

figuratively speaking.

Ronnie--Executive Editor at the Ronnie Republic Radio Round-Up:  We thought about it carefully and we have made our decision to go ahead and endorse Al Franken for President of The Unites States.
