The top one is from August 7, 2019 when hiked down to the ‘Nay Aug‘ gorge in Scranton, PA.

The other two were in Boston, from this past Monday, August 26, 2019, when we went to see the ‘Downton Abbey — The Exhibition‘. The bottom two, as must be obvious, taken ‘My Way‘.

Just a record for those that complain that I take all these pictures but rarely post any of myself.

Went to visit the park, around 3pm after spending many hours at ‘Steamtown‘. There was thunderstorms in the forecast and the weather did not look promising. So, I was hoping we could take refuge in the Everhart Museum which is inside the Park. It is closed on Wednesdays! That was disappointing.

But, we decided to explore until the rains came. Though it always looked imminent, it did not rain. So, we lucked out.

Nay Aug‘ is an Indian name and means ‘noisy brook’ — the brook is sure is that.

The Tree House was cute. I hiked the Gorge. You can see that in the GPS track. It was fun and scenic. I had fun. Got to see a train. That was a bonus.

The rose garden was quite impressive too, though it was past its peak.

Definitely recommend it. I wish we weren’t always keeping an eye on the rain. I would love to go back. Nice place Scranton — Joe Biden’s birthplace.

Pennsylvania Colleges Removing Names Of Catholic Bishops Accused In Sex Abuse CRIMES.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE. From NPR.


Yesterday we saw, alas, vandalism out of sheer frustration.

Today, we see sanity and common-sense finally beginning to prevail. This, however, is but a small, firststep. So, much needs to be done. Cardinals, Archbishops, Bishops and priest need to be fired and where possible sent to prison.

The three bishops whose names are being expunged are: Jerome Hannan, James Timlin and J. Carroll McCormick — all three bishops of Scranton, PA, at various times.

Baby steps ….

But, a decent, moral start.
