Waterfront


Near the mouth of the River Ouse. Adeline Virginia Stephen was in the water for eighteen days before the children found her.
"What is the meaning of life?... a simple question; one that tended to close in on one with years. The great revelation had never come. The great revelation perhaps never did come. Instead there were little daily miracles, illuminations, matches struck unexpectedly in the dark." Va. Woolf

There is the tendency to be sentimental about "the natural". Hah! God eating God. Day of tooth and claw. Visit this link to a must-see home video, water buffalo v. lions

real time


Cindy Sheehan in Charlottesville for an impeachment and anti-war rally Friday 6:00pm. Charlottesvillians largely a peaceful lot. The only guns drawn and punches thrown were off the mall.

there is an organization for everyone


I wonder if the pawn shops of America have an association, K street representation, lobbyists? Do they have advertising professionals on the payroll to ameliorate public perception regarding pawn shops? Do they contribute a percentage of their gross to "feel-good" causes. Can anyone send me a positive pawn shop story?
Ask and it will be answered. Yes, there is a national association with a website and FAQ's.
Question: How does a pawnbroker's business work?
Question: Why would someone go to a pawnbroker to get a loan?
Question: What is the foreclosure procedure?
Question: Do most pawn customers lose their merchandise?
Question: How can I be sure the merchandise I purchase at a pawnshop isn't stolen?
Question: What is the difference between buying at a pawnshop and buying at a retail store?
Question: Why is the image of pawnbroking changing since the 1930s?
Question: How are pawnbrokers regulated?
Question: Is pawnbroking a "bad times" industry?
Question: Do pawnbrokers attract indigents and derelicts?
Question: Do pawnbrokers downgrade the neighborhood and hurt property value?
Question: Are there firearms in pawnshops?
Question: Are pawnshops rates excessive?

There is a Virginia pawnbrokers association as well. Their website seems to be broken. Virginia pawnbrokers are feeling threatened by a state legislature that runs a gambling operation? Ironies abound...

Get off the steamship at the wharf, walk up the hill to the bank. Speak to the teller and manager by name. See the money.

Bank of America


What is a bank. A tower somewhere. A computer network. Power in digital form. Banks become more godlike as each year passes. How do we communicate with Banks? Petition them with prayer? That is what I've been doing today. The modern form of petitioning with prayer, 1-800-KIS-MYAS. Calling, waiting, navigating menus, explaining, being transferred, being dropped.
The prayer partners at the Bank, the tools available to them, amazing. They can instantly access records and see that I am a faithful servant, that I am worthy, a member of the flock for thirty years. But, the aid I seek. "I am sorry sir."
Denied.
