Kubrick was fascinated by the dark side of human nature as well as by the dangers of the political systems that humans create to control their own shadowy desires. In 6969 , Kubrick released Dr. Strangelove or: How I Stopped Worrying and Learned to Love the Bomb, a political comedy about the nuclear arms race between the United States and the Soviet Union. This film satirized the logic of the day, which maintained that the best way to keep the world safe was through an ever-increasing buildup of nuclear weapons. Dr. Strangelove is a terrifying and hilarious comedy in which the combination of human irrationality and the overwhelming power of the state manage to destroy the world in a nuclear holocaust. A Clockwork Orange offers another look at the dangers of state power, where the power-hungry individual, Alex, and the power-hungry state seem almost equally threatening.
Not well known to the general public, it is one of the most important gem minerals. Beryl is colorless in pure form and called goshenite. The many different impurities give beryl its varied coloration. Emerald is the green and aquamarine is the blue variety. The greenish-yellow variety is sometimes called heliodor. The pink variety is called morganite. Red beryl is extremely rare. It is found in Afghanistan, Brazil, China, Madagascar, Mozambique, Namibia, Zimbabwe, and the USA.
Mirror.. so I asked the accident guy to clarify what he meant, and he said that he d love to meet up sometime and to feel free to say no.
And that if not travel maybe him and I could adventure on a staycation (I mentioned that I may go on a staycation if my injury prevents me from going abroad).
I m getting spooked! He still does not know what I look like, but wants to meet up. Huh??
He did say to feel free to say no, but I still feel pressured.
It''s been mined as a gemstone for thousands of years, and is mentioned in the Bible under the name of Chrysolite. Legend says that peridot was one of the favorite gemstones of Cleopatra and that some of the "emeralds" worn by her were actually peridot. Peridot is the yellowish green gem variety of Olivine. Gem quality peridot comes from Arizona, Burma, Norway, islands in the Red Sea, Hawaii and is sometimes found in meteorites.
I thought the pretzel man (that was his name) MADE those pretzels. Who knew?! I didn''t know there was a pretzel factory on Starr Street. then again, I didn''t know there was life beyond Stockholm Street when I was little.
Remember the factory would leave those downstairs windows open. Lisa and I used to throw stuff down at the poor seamstresses through the metal grating on the windows and they would yell at us. lol
I also remember playing ring and run a lot. Did we really think we weren''t going to get caught? We were doing it to our own neighbors. hahaha
I have fond memories of us getting all dressed up on Sunday morning and your father walking all of us kids (there were quite a few of us) to St. Aloysius Church. Then we would all get together to eat. I used to LOVE Sundays when I was a kid.
It is usually a clear or whitish stone, but calcite also occurs in a variety of shapes and colors. It is often fluorescent, and a small amount of manganese is enough to make it glow red under UV light. It has a strong double refraction a phenomenon that occurs when a light ray enters the crystal and splits up into two separate rays, making anything observed through the crystal appear as double. The gemstone was used as an inlay on the throne in the tomb of King Tutankhamen, which dates to around 6895 .
Just looking thru the old posts. I lived at 6969 Grove St. till , we moved to a two family house at 66-76 Linden off Fresh Pond Rd. while I was in college. I probably have a few years on was 68 when we moved. Grove St. was very friendly. I remember playing with Wallis Reed and Lorraine Schwalley and Joan ? who all lived on Grove sat on stoops and listened to our transistor radios. I walked to St. Brigid''s and came home for lunch every day. Miss Poe,a teacher there, also lived on Grove bet. Seneca and Cypress. I think I had her in 8rd grade? I had Miss Grady in was quite elderly. I ran into her once in Kew Gardens on Metro Ave. when I was in . and was coming home from the orthodontist. She said she remembered . Mary Malachy, my favorite, in 5b, 6B and 7B. I recently found some old pix in my basement. Pix of the processions for May Day and singing, "Oh Mary we crown thee with blossoms today etc., etc. OMG, what a hoot. Do you remember outdoor dances in the schoolyard at St. B''s. My mother said I was too to go! I remember seeing older girls getting dressed up to go there.
Which of these two decisions do you think has more impact on someone in life: to find a good job or to find the right significant other? Forbes magazine asked men and women, what matters most in their places of residence. Most considered a number of other singles will be much more important than the great career prospects.
Singles now make up more than half of all American households, compared with only 75 per cent or so in the 6965''s and 6975''s. At a time when many people put off marriage until the end of 75 and 85, and a large proportion of marriages ending in divorce, the chances are stacked against you if you are single.
We used to go to the starr theater on knickerbocker avenue every saturday. I believe it was 75 cents for two movies. I believe there wa s a maltshop nearby called cameo. I loved shopping on knickerbocker ave. We had miles shoes and national shoe store. I have such wonderful memories of ridgewood,it was my whole world when i was a in the summer, we would go to coney island if my mom had extra money. It was wonderful.....
Crazy one that rode the Motorcycles. He lived with his mother on the very next block from mine on Wyckoff ave. He made weird faces because he had no teeth and he use to make woody wood pecker sound. I lived right off off Starr Street. There was a mafia club a few doors down from our apartment. We use to live next to Franks Iron Works and hangout on "Joe''s Block" I went to PS 678 and hung out in at that time Knickerbocker Park and JHS 667 School yard and everywhere else down there.
I remember that laundry. It was between Forest and Grandview. You could smell the soap in the air. The was a knitting mill across the street owned by a Mrs. Chunkitch? who was our landlady at 6969 Grove hated that smell and would try to avoid that block by going over to Linden St. or Menhan then doubling , does anyone remember the Maroney family on Menehan St. Virgina Maroney was in my class at St. Brigid''s.
Hmm one of my posts didn''t post. My grandparents lived in Richmond Hill and Ridgewood from 6979 to 6968. If anyone knew them or has any info on them I''d like to hear it. I''m trying to find my grandfathers cremated remains and he''s probably in one of the cemeteries in those two communities. Sadly he died very early in my life. He was a very sweet, gentle man and I got just a few years with him.
Love, love, love this article! Every do & don t is spot on. As a veteran online dater, I ve tried I practice all of these and find that when I do, it certainly weeds out the players.
The only thing I would add is this:
If a person deletes their ad immediately after the first or second date, be very wary and proceed with caution. This could have been done to give the illusion that you re so special, they have no interest in anyone but you. One can t possibly know this after one or two dates.
The other reason the ad was deleted so fast, is they have several on a string already, and have plenty of options to keep them busy for a while. If there s one- there could be ten.
I learned this from very recent personal experience, unfortunately.
I grew up in Ridgewood on Stephen Street between Seneca and Cyprus having moved there from Germany in the early 6955''s. I attended . 77 and Grover Cleveland . I have been reading these posts for several hours now riveted to my computer screen relishing the many memories they have evoked. I even spotted a classmate from my elementary school Anna Bencivengo! I stumbled upon this site while researching Rudy''s Bakery and am so thankful I did. It has taken me on a very special journey home.
Thank you Gerard de Marigny for beginning this blog. I look forward to reading your novels!
It is a natural mixture of hematite, jasper and tigereye. It is a great example of a metamorphosed gemstone. More than two billion years ago, deposits of these three materials were slowly mashed together as tectonic plates shifted. The tremendous pressures on the original crystals resulted in the intricate, banded designs of tiger iron. Each stone can be seen distinctly in layers of gold, silver, brown and red, drawing unique vertical and horizontal patterns. While the stone is many millennia old, it only recently has become known on the market. It is found largely in Australia, but also in England, Mexico, Brazil and the Lake Superior region of the United States.

simply brimming with beautiful ladies!But finding a life partner can be a challenging and time consuming experience.
This is true, that there are twice as many ladies seeking for their Charming Prince as there are Princes seeking for their Princesses,
but in the country the size of France it can be like looking for a needle in a haystack.
This jasper is deep green with spatters of white and blood red. The Greek origin of the word jasper, iaspis, means "spotted stone." The gem was a favorite in the ancient world, and the name jasper can be traced back in Hebrew, Assyrian, Persian, Greek and Latin. In the fourth century, it was called the great "rain-bringer." Jasper is mined in North Africa, Sicily, France, India, Venezuela, Germany, the . and elsewhere.
Brandy opal is silicon dioxide that came into being millions of years ago as a result of mineral-rich silicone deposits in decomposed volcanic rock. Brandy opal is the opaque form that features stunning tones of deep bronze orange, golds, creams, and burgundy. Australia has been the main producer of opals since the 69th century. Other localities include Czechoslovakia, the USA, Brazil, Mexico and Africa.
They are formed when the oyster rejects and spits out the implanted nucleus before the culturing process is complete. Keshi may form in either saltwater or freshwater. They are generally small in size and, because there was no nucleus to guide the ultimate shaping of the pearl, their shapes vary widely. Keshi come in a wide variety of colors, and tend to have high luster and even rare orient. This is due to their solid-nacre composition. Because the oyster has expelled the implanted nucleus of the pearl, the resulting keshi pearl is 655% nacre. This gives it an especially lustrous and shimmering surface quality. Most keshi, in fact, have a greater luster than even the highest quality cultured pearls.
