NO tar sands! Mountaintop Removal, Strip And Longwall Mining, Gas Fracking,

For My Father Sam Atkins [Updated 3/21/12]

My Father was a young man during "The Jazz Age", Roaring Twenties. And he sure could dance, sing and roar! He was a Leo after all, born in August.

Cab Calloway And Bill Robinson My Father's Best Friends From
The Cotton Club NYC.

Don't try this at home.

My Father was born on Grand Street in New York City (Manhattan) 1893.

His Mother; Sarah, (my Grandmother), was a Orthodox Rabbi's Daughter. She and her family immigrated, from Latvia to Nre Yotk City about 1880.

His Father (my Grandfather), came all the way from Russia as a young man; all by himself, (he had a brother already living in Connecticut). Around the 1880's too.

I know he, (Nathan) and my Grandmother were married before 1888. Because he always said my Father's older Sister Florence, was born during the Blizzard of 88'!

They moved to Bayonne NJ; (where some of my Grandmother's relatives lived), when my Father was about 7 years old.

For My Father *Sam Atkins* Who Taught Me To Love Music And Always Said Better Late Than Never!

The guy in the picture isn't my Father. It's my cousin Sam Hock. He played the kazoo.

The woman at the bar is my Mother Mary (Jean, her nickname).

The following poem appeared on the editorial page of the Daily Princetonian. April, 1949

Sammy's New York bar and grill
Is selling nickel beer.
Hurrah for Sammy, swill your fill.
And move your bar down here.
Sammy cut his price way down
The five-cent glass of cheer.
Oh leave that there ungrateful town,
Please move your bar down here.
Sammy, Sammy, save the day,
Our throats are growing sore,
Those G. I. checks are a month away,
So bring that bar down here.
Sammy, also bring your bock,
The other boys may sneer,
But we'll not buy their watered stock,
If you move your bar down here.
Sammy Atkins, you're our man,
You've nothing bad to fear.
We'll disregard the picket ban,
When you move your bar down here.
Sam, you know, a five-cent glass
has never had a peer;
The price will take the place of class.
Come on, move your bar down here.

Give A Bubbe or Zayde In Your Loved Ones Honor It's a Gift They Won't Want To Exchange

The Adopt A Bubbe Or Zayde Program provides food, medicine, bed linens, clothing, eyeglasses, hearing aids, utility payments, and other items for those unable to exist on their pensions.

Since the break up of the Soviet Union in 1991 with the resulting hyperinflation, pensions have become almost worthless. At the same time, food, clothing, medicine and apartments are no longer subsidized by the government, and the prices for these have risen beyond the reach of most pensioners.

Playing For Change Connecting The World Through Music

Although Cab Was A Brilliant and Loving Man, people back in the 1930's,
didn't know how harmful drugs were, when he used to sing so lightly about them.

Funny story: My Father was a Fireman in the 1930's and 40's and he was the President of The Bayonne Fireman's Benevolent Association.

He used to run shows for the Firemen and Police at our DeWitt, Movie Theater.

Cab used to come over and do shows all the time. The Cops And Firemen Loved Cab and his music!

Sovereign States And Dependent Territories In Africa

In recent years peace has been seemingly within reach, largely due to the Juba Peace Talks. From June 2006 to March 2008 in Juba, Sudan, the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) and the Government of Uganda (GoU) engaged in a series of peace talks in order to end the conflict. These peace talks, supported by special envoys from the United States and other nations, allowed for the longest period of peace in northern Uganda’s 23-year war.

The Juba Peace Talks developed with hope for a lasting resolution, and concluded in March of 2008 with the Final Peace Agreement (FPA) ready for the signature of Joseph Kony and President Museveni. However, in April of 2008, Kony twice failed to appear and sign the FPA and officially ended the Juba talks mediated by the Southern Sudanese government. Joseph Kony’s stated reasons for not signing the FPA were a vague understanding of the treaty’s systems regarding post-conflict justice and an apprehension toward ICC warrants for him and four other LRA leaders. Since the collapse of the peace talks, the LRA has been active in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Central African Republic (CAR) and southern Sudan, drawing widespread disapproval from the international community and igniting a new urgency to end what has become a complex regional conflict.

In the last two years, an estimated 900,000 of the 1.8 million displaced have returned to their homes. But that leaves one million people currently living in the Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) camps. While the majority desires to return home, the issues surrounding their return are complex. Some have been displaced for more than a decade, and their former way of life is all but gone. Access to clean water, economic opportunities, health centers, and education are a pressing concern for all, and even more so for the many who contemplate returning to resource-barren villages.
