America the Right Way – Staying Vigilant September 21 and September 22 , 2013 ( Weekend Edition)

This time of year I’m reminded of a place that is no longer in business. The Great Bear Apple Farm had an orchard of about 5,000 apple and 1,000 cherry trees. The months of September and October on Saturdays free glasses of apple cider and a sugar doughnuts were offered to the customers. Of course, that encouraged the customers who loved the cider and doughnuts to buy apples and much more.

Great Bear Springs was on the same property. I remember going with my mom’s family…glass jugs in hand….. to the perfect spot to get the spring water. If I close my eyes I can see the location and hear the soothing trickle of water coming down from the rocks.

This is the building I remember.

    Rave, your morning quote is GREAT!

  2. lysie says:

    Ted Cruz will be on Fox News Sunday.

    • lysie says:

      Thanks for all the links, Molly.

      Chris Wallace asked Cruz about other Republicans bashing him . Cruz replied that he was not going to stoop to that level and that there is a problem in DC. with career politicians who don’t listen to what the people are demanding.

      As expected the Fox News Sunday panel bad-mouthed Cruz. Idiots!

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Cruz shines a light into the darkness and he’s vilified for that….sure looks like what’s happening to me…

      Well, Fall is coming to our valley…change of seasons…

    • tillacum says:

      I’ll catch him at 1700. Missed him earlier. I like the spunk Ted Cruz shows.

  3. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

    I researched it, Molly. This is the website. http://www.friendsofgreatbear.org/history.asp

    There is another well know orchard not far from here in Lafayette, NY. Excellent apple cider.

    • tillacum says:

      I can’t remember the name, but when I was stationed at Griffiss AFB in Rome, NY, we’d
      drive to an orchard where they sold apples, and cider. What a great day that would be.
      My car would be loaded with apples and of course a couple of jugs of cider. Great
      memories. The apples were so crisp and tasty. I’d make apple pies, apple cakes and muffins, apple sauce and freeze for later and give some away. Great memories. The drive was so nice, the scenery and the small towns we’d drive through always reminded me of quaint stories, I’d read as a youngster.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Oh that’s wonderful to have the memories planted in the internet…

      After seeing your photo and comments, I did a quick search to turn up anything on the area between Galveston and Houston where we would go to get figs….didn’t find anything in particular, but it was a quick search only. I remember the huge trees, and the many figs, but I didn’t really appreciate that delicious fruit til 20 or so years later when I rediscovered them in Louisiana…oh well…

      It’s amazing to me that they can now be purchased in the grocery stores!

    • Jemian says:

      Oh, yum! Apple anything. God’s goodness in one little package.

  5. lysie says:

    Hi Rav. Those quotes …yes and yes.

  6. Molly Pitcher says:

    Good morning!

    Ah, Peggy….why couldn’t you have had such insights BEFORE you endorsed 0 in ’08….

  7. lysie says:

    Yippee for your team, Jem.

  8. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

      Morning Quotes:
      (Bush did it)

      As happened anytime socialism ever had been tried, it was a failure. Lenin’s much-desired civil war cost 13 million lives and his ruinous economic policies triggered the famine of 1921-1922. YouTube has many videos of Lenin speaking, with the salient feature being his propensity to blame his predecessor, the Czar, for the economic havoc.
      -Monica Showalter,

      Six Principles Of Propaganda Lenin Used To Consolidate Power

      (Bush didn’t do it)

      The world knows a lot about us, and in ways removed from specific military actions. Their elites come here, and increasingly their middle class. They know our unemployment problem—it’s not a secret. They take the train from New York to Washington and see the abandoned factories. They know about our budget problems, they know who holds our bonds. They read about the kids who are bored so they killed the visiting Australian baseball player, and the kids so bored they killed a World War II veteran. They read about the state legislator who became a hero for defending late-term abortions—they see the fawning interviews. They go home with the story of the guy who spent his time watching violent videos and then, amazingly, acted out his visions of violence at the Washington Navy Yard. They notice our mass killings are no more than two-day stories.
      And of course it isn’t only “the world” that sees this—Americans see it. And they are worried about their country. Deep down they, too, wonder if we are still a great nation or will be able to remain one. They think our economy is in a shambles and our government incapable, at the moment, of creating the conditions that will allow it to come back. They fear our culture is rotting our children’s heads.
      -Peggy Noonan on Obama’s America 9/2013

      Happy, happy to read about that memory lysie. Is that an old photo of yours you had kept, or one you had to research and find?

    • The Raven says:

      Maybe 20 yrs ago, but I still remember a glass of apple juice I had “in season” in Lockport NY
