POSITRACTION: A baby and climb

This hanging tool, discovered by The Grommet, is an infinitely handy hybrid: the functionality of a carabiner combined with a 360º hook.

The heck with the product ad. Listen to what this lady did in a short amount of time.

Had a baby and then shortly after climbed Mount Ranier.

Impressive.

Even more how she just says it so matter of factly.

Humble strength.

Impressive.

Two things I’ll never do — have a baby and climb!

JOBIT: Nigara, Rose Marie [MC???? RIP]

2014-Nov-25

http://obits.dignitymemorial.com/dignity-memorial/obituary.aspx?n=Rose-Nigara&lc=4020&pid=173277549&mid=6210538

Rose Marie Nigara
September 9, 1921 – November 24, 2014
Obituary

Rose M. Nigara has been actively involved in Our Lady of the Valley’s parish (located in Orange, NJ) for approximately sixty years. She is known for her warm smile and her willingness to be in God’s Service. One of her strong characteristic is her faith in God and her devotion to Mary, the Blessed Mother.

Rose was born in Newark, NJ in 1921. She was educated by the nuns of Saint/Mother Cabrini’s Order at St. Anthony’s Orphanage in North Arlington, NJ. Upon graduation from high school in 1939, she attended Manhattan College in New York where she received certification in advanced stenography.

Utilizing her stenographic skills, Rose has an extensive employment history spanning over fifty years: Administrative Secretary to the Department Chief of Western Electric, (Kearny): Columbus Hospital, (New York): the Law Firm of Cox & Walburg, (Newark). After twenty-two years working as the Executive Secretary to the Superintendent of the West Orange Public Schools, she retired in 1986.

Rose is affiliated with a host of organizations sharing her time, talents, and treasures. She has been a member of the Rosary Society for fifty-eight years and correctly serves as Secretary for the Rosary Society at Our lady of the Valley. She is also a member of the Health & Wellness Ministry; The Linus Organization, West Orange Police Athletic League, and the West Orange First Aid Squad, Inc.

Rose embraces good stewardship with vigor. She has devoted over a half of a century of service to Our Lady of the Valley. As an Extraordinary Minister of the Eucharist, she visits the housebound and patients in nursing homes. She prepares the communion vessels before and after masses; assists with the beautification of the church. As a Rosarian, she has dedicated daily recitation of the rosary to Our Lady; leads the rosary at masses daily in addition to the Chaplet of the Divine Mercy.

As a result of Rose’s genuine interest in every one she meets, her generosity has enabled many individuals and families in need of assistance whether it’s financial or preparing a hot meal for the homeless. In addition to her numerous contributions, she finds time to knit and crochet warm blankets for children afflicted with cancer in various hospitals.

Rose takes great pride in her family. She was married to the late Anthony Nigara in 1946. From their union, she had three sons, Vincent (LuAnn), Robert (Marie), and John (Rebecca). She is the proud grandmother of eight grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.

Rose is a humble person who spreads the love of God gracefully. She is an inspiration to many parishioners; encouraging others to intensify their involvement as servants of God. A virtuous woman who sets an example by living the Catholic faith. She maintains a full schedule of community building- building a community of God.

Good Afternoon All,

I have just heard from Mike McEneney who is home now and doing better but as Mike says, ” Still confined to Quarters.”

However, early this morning, Mike’s Wife, Cathie, was taken to the ER by their Daughter displaying the same symptoms that Mike did. CATHIE WAS ADMITTED and is being treated with various anti-biotics. Please keep Cathie and Mike in your prayers for continued healing for Mike and a quick recovery for Cathie. Thank you. God Bless.

I was very pleased to see James Patterson, author, being interviewed by a panel of four hosts on the The Today Show, NBC. I came in on the tail end of the conversation. He was talking about two new books, “Hope to Die” and “House of Robots”. If any one wants to see it, the show aired on NBC The Today Show November 24, 2014. He had many things to say about the process of Co-authoring which he has been doing for some time.

Michael Langan
Obituary

DR. MICHAEL J. LANGAN, OB/GYN

Having dedicated his working life to addressing the health concerns of women and guiding babies into the world, Dr. Michael Joseph Langan (Mike) died peacefully on November 22 during a rehab stay at The Nathaniel Witherell in Greenwich, CT due to complications from a stroke three weeks earlier. A cancer survivor, he suffered from vascular dementia in recent years.

Mike was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on September 24, 1922, to an Irish-American father and a French mother. At that time, his father was working for a British firm in Rio and Sao Paolo. When Mike was five, his parents decided that he and his younger brother, Lucien, should grow up in the US. Mike had learned to speak the native Portuguese, his mother’s French, and a little of his father’s English. Voyages to Britain and France in his early years sparked a love for travel and adventure that eventually took Mike to over sixty countries around the world, many of them multiple times.

A graduate of Flushing High School, NY, and Manhattan College, Mike went on to Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons for his MD degree as part of the V-12 program of the United States Navy. Just 22 years old when he finished medical school, he interned at Lenox Hill Hospital in Manhattan, and then was called to active duty as a Lieutenant JG, assigned first to St. Albans Naval Hospital in Queens, NY and then to Midway Island in the Pacific. Returning stateside, he did two years of residency in obstetrics and gynecology at Lenox Hill Hospital in Manhattan, separated by a one-year recall to active duty during the Korean War. He then completed his training with a third year of residency at Brooklyn Methodist Hospital.

In June, 1953, Mike came to Greenwich, CT to partner with Dr. Payson Ayres, an early practitioner of natural childbirth. Later Mike established a solo practice, which grew to become Brookside Obstetrics & Gynecology Associates. He retired in December, 1995, and was named Emeritus Senior Attending Physician in the OB/GYN department at Greenwich Hospital. The practice he founded continues today as Brookside Gynecology. Mike championed the Lamaze and Leboyer methods of natural childbirth, and encouraged breast feeding and good nutrition for new mothers. He was influential in keeping maternity care at Greenwich Hospital and in the establishment of private birthing rooms there. He valued each of his patients and was genuinely interested in their concerns.

Mike was a member of the American Medical Society, the Fairfield County Medical Society, the American College of OB/GYN, the American College of GYN Laporoscopists, and the American College of Fertility and Sterility. He served his medical school for many years as chair of his 1946 class and as a member of the Alumni Council. He also served as president of the Westchester Obstetrical Society.

Locally, Mike was a member of the Horseneck Club, the Retired Men’s Association and Greenwich Research Partners, an investment club. He also was a member of the Belle Haven Club where he served on committees supporting swimming and boating. For many years, he enjoyed boating on Long Island Sound, having learned to sail as a young man in Bayside, Long Island. In later years, he enjoyed captaining his trawler, “Miss Conception,” to distant harbors on Long Island and to ports along the Hudson River.

With an extensive vocabulary, bolstered by knowledge of several languages including Latin, he enjoyed speeding through the NY Times Sunday crossword puzzle in ink. He excelled in the sports he learned as a young man at the local YMCA – ping pong, pool, and swimming – which he passed on to his children and grandchildren, as well as his love of tennis which he enjoyed as long as he was physically able, especially doubles. He read extensively in a variety of fields, and loved New York theater, dance, and art. He had an eye for beauty in the natural world and in hand-made crafts, with a special interest in wooden bowls. He read every label in every museum he visited, and retained information in an encyclopedic fashion.

Mike encouraged his family to pursue their passions. He is survived by his wife of 68 years, Kathleen (Kay) Holman Langan, as well as by six of his seven children: Meg Moore (John) of Reston, VA, Ellen Langan (Steve Krafchick) of Seattle, WA, Katie Langan Santee (Kevin) of Mamaroneck, NY, Betsy Dell of Roseville, CA, Bob Langan (Margot) of Portland, OR and Stephen Langan (Kathy) of Bedford, NH, as well as his daughter-in-law Candace Langan of Jamestown, RI, and 12 grandchildren: Kevin Moore, Tom Langan, Annie Langan, Ana Krafchick, Michael Santee, Tyler Santee, Guy Santee, Jack Dell, Kay Dell, Will Langan, Mary Kate Langan and Connor Langan.He was predeceased by his parents, Martin Vincent Langan and Raymonde Faye Langan, his brother, Lucien Langan, his son, Bill Langan, and his son-in-law, Roger Dell.

A service of remembrance and celebration of life will be held on Saturday, December 6 at 11 am at Christ Church Greenwich, where Mike and Kay are members.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorial gifts be given in Mike’s name to Christ Church Greenwich, 254 East Putnam Avenue, Greenwich, CT 06830 or to Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, 630 West 168th Street, P & S 2-421, New York, NY 10032.

Summary:

I aim to further build upon my experience by working with volunteer programs and education systems, hoping to promote world peace, friendship, and success throughout schools. I strive to be able to make a difference in changing young students lives. That can begin by increasing graduation rates within high poverty cities, and preparing students with the needed resources to be able to become effective and independent contributors in a democratic society and in an interdependent world.

ENDNOTE: A eulogy for Thanksgiving

THANKFUL NATION
Do we need a eulogy for Thanksgiving?
By Roger Beahm
Published November 26, 2014
FoxNews.com

*** begin quote ***

There was a time in the not-too-distant past when the world stopped and families ate. We called it Thanksgiving.

Like most reflections of our past, we tend to look back on Thanksgiving with nostalgia, cherished memories and routines (breaking the wishbone, lighting the fireplace, wagering who would fall asleep in front of the TV first). We ate, we laughed, we were together. We were happy.

But again this season we’re hearing people lament that Thanksgiving is being gobbled up by seemingly endless sales from retailers. Or that the sacredness of this holiday has given way to crass commercialism. Have we virtually “lost” Thanksgiving altogether? Do we need a eulogy for Thanksgiving?

*** end quote ***

I disagree with the author in that I think we do.

We are not a “thankful nation”.

It’s lost.

From our dishonest fiat currency to our continued warfare / welfare state that disempowers people while robbing “the makers” to buy the votes of “the takers”, the USA is but a hollow shell of what it once was.

Can it be reclaimed from the Gooferment with its politicians, bureaucrats, and Crony Capitalists?

That’s a remote possibility.

It’s a war that has to resemble trench warfare.

Every “inch of ground” has to be recaptured one step after another.

The guiding principle has to be the Golden Rule — and not the one that he who has the gold makes the rules — Zero Aggression Principle. You can’t use force or fraud to compel others to do what you want them to do — even if you think it’s “best” for them, or for “the Nation”, or for “the children”.

Great ideas don’t require force.

So “We, The Sheeple” have to take back the “currency” (i.e., make it commodity based; end the Fed), take back “the schools” (i.e., separation of Education and State), take back the Welfare system (i.e., separation of Charity and the State; return it to the People to do charity; put able bodied of “the dole”), and FINALLY take back control of the Warfare State (i.e., adopt an MYOB foreign policy and be more like Switzerland).

It’s a herculean task.

I’m not sure “We, The Sheeple” have the courage, fortitude, and the wisdom to pull it off.

The Roman Empire fell. The Soviet Union fell. All empires fall. What happens after the American one does the same?

My crystal ball is foggy.

Dona Nobis Pacem
