Papa’s World – The tour of the Capital continues

GOOD MORNING

As we continued on the tour

I noticed the plaques over doors leading into historic rooms

The old Supreme Court room used from 1810 to 1860 – 50 years !

Historic room
Historic room

I could not help but wonder-

” IF THESE WALLS COULD TALK ” !

Historic room

Everything was just decorated in elegance.

Sherry with our tour guide Henry

We went into and out of so many rooms I lost track of just what they were !

Historic room
The many historic events
that would of happened here !
The room under the Rotunda
where George Washington was to be interred
and his wishes were to be interred
on his own property
at Mount Vernon
Henry – Jo- Sherry and Paul
under the Rotunda

The artwork and floors were just beautiful –

The walls and statues and the deco work on the walls

It is hard to explain – you just have to see it for yourself !

The speaker of the Senate
Mitch McConnell
office
Not much goes on here !

We walked in wonder – I was amazed at seeing History !

I have loved History all my life –

this day I felt I walked among it !

The ceiling of the Rotunda
Looking up
the wall
and all the reliefs
The Rotunda
where Presidents
have been viewed

The statues – the floor – the walls and the ceiling

spoke centuries of thought to me.

Each state has a statue
or more !

There are so many statues – that we were told –

They had to move them to another room

as the weight was causing structural damage to the floor.

That room had been closed off for interior work being done!

The original statue
that was to be placed on the dome
was too heavy
so they made a lighter one
that now stands and faces
the executive branch
watching to over see JUSTICE

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

dramatic changes such as
Women’s rights to vote
This statue is left undone
to signify there is more to be done
and one day
A WOMEN SHALL BE ELECTED PRESIDENT !

Papa’s World – MUIR’S FOREST – Part two

GOOD MORNING

As we walked among the giants – the peace and quiet became evident –

from watching the man push his wife up the path in a wheel chair

to the lady who quietly said ” Would you like for me to take your picture ” ?

Buck – Cindy – Sherry and me

And that is how we managed to have a picture

with all of us standing inside this huge Redwood tree !

Tom

And then the tree that I hid inside and peaked out –

I am told that the really big Redwoods are further North

Where you can drive a car through –

To think this tree is between 600 and 1600 years old !

And then we entered Cathedral Grove –

Instantly all was quiet

Sherry – Buck – Cindy

A church like atmosphere –

everyone was hushed at the grand gathering of trees !

Walking among them – looking up and then ahead –

taking in the beauty of these giants !

Sherry
Tom Cindy Buck

Solitude – walking – looking – admiring – in awe !

Our day was coming to a close –

after nearly two hours walking among the trees

Time to say goodbye to Muir Forest – home of the giant Redwoods !

Healthy Life – Fresh Food

Seven years ago – we were introduced to ” GROWING ” our own FRESH produce.

Neither one of us ( Sherry) my wife – were gardeners – and the thought of weeding was completely out of my vocabulary !

Then we ordered our first ” TOWER ” Garden –

A aeroponic garden system – using Air – Water and Minerals.

We grow some of our seedlings – others we order and have them shipped to us.

Healthy eating – knowing we use no pesticides – and fresh produce –

allows us to eat healthy all year round !
( We also grow in our garage using grow lights during Winter. )

The system is really quite simple – a tank in the bottom – holds 20 gallons of water.

A pump – is attached to the center of the Tower by a hose –

and pumps water straight up to the top and then drips down through holes in the center of the Tower.

The water also contains minerals from the Earth. Patented – and in liquid form.

Which are supplied when you order for one season. Everything you need is supplied – for your original garden season – this system we have is seven years old and looks as good today as when we bought it !

There is a timer for the pump – 15 minutes on and 15 minutes off. The whole process boils down to making sure you have water – and once a week add some tonic – or in the heat of Summer – every other week.

The fresh produce grows at a very fast rate – in four weeks time we are eating lettuce – Kale – leafy greens . Cuke’s and tomato’s & peppers take longer – but much shorter than a normal garden plot. You can grow most anything that does not require a tree. Mellon’s – Strawberries – squash – egg plant – herbs etc.

Simple – fast – and best of all ” I DO NOT HAVE TO WEED ” ! I HATE TO WEED !

Since we were some of the first in the Country as a test – we decided to purchase two more ! We have one set up for Winter in our garage and two outside as you see here – the produce is only a couple weeks old – the smaller ones about a week !

We also are distributor’s for what is called the Tower Garden – and have placed them in schools as part of a curriculum established by the Juice Plus Company – to teach children how to grow their own fresh produce all across the Country – presently 5,500 Towers are teaching the process nationwide. We are responsible for about 70 – our team is very active.

Promoting health – one green at a time – and some reds!!!! LOL

Have a great day – eat healthy.
