Although Morocco is a country of Africa, in many ways it is a country apart. It is more related to the Mediterranean than to the rest of Africa. It is mainly because of the fact that it nestles on the northwestern of Africa and is separated from the rest of the continent by Atlas Mountains and the Sahara itself. Being situated with both Atlantic and Mediterranean coastlines, mountainous interior, it stayed independent for centuries. However, the country have developed a rich culture blended from Arab, Berber, European and African influences. Morocco is an ethnically diverse country with a rich culture and civilization.

If you want to spend a vacation with your family in Morocco then the city of Marrakech is the best place. This city has too much to offer for every one, children, teenagers and adults. You will find many snake charmers in the streets, magicians showing their tricks, a lot of colorful markets and many more. The most interesting and enjoyment days are the days of Muslim festivals; during the festivals you will see the most out of Morocco.

Step into Fez and find yourself in a world where the medieval and the modern exist side by side. Fez el Jédid (“the New”) is the modern part of Fez whereas Fez el Bali (“the Old”) is one of the world’s best-preserved medieval cities. Amidst the sprawling streets, you can find stalls selling intricate handicrafts, leather goods, copper and brassware. Visit the Bou Inania Madersa, a fourteenth century religious college with breathtaking architecture, or the Dar-Batha museum, which features, among other things, an amazing Moroccan ceramic collection. You may also enjoy visiting the Kairaouine mosque, which was previously the largest mosque in Africa. Fez is also famous for its cuisine.

Other interesting places to visit in Casablanca Morocco are the Port of Casablanca, the Catholic Cathedral, the Casablanca Techno Park, the Twin Center, Parc de la Ligue Arabe, Lycée Lyautey, Mohammed V International Airport, and the Casablanca City Hall. Casablanca Port is considered as one of the world’s largest artificial and main ports. The Catholic Cathedral became a cultural center in 1930 after it stopped its operation in 1956 as a church. Parc de la Ligue Arabe is one of the largest parks in the city. Beside it is Cathédrale Sacré-Coeur which is an unused Mauresque architecture.

Morocco’s capital city, Rabat, may not be as well known as the other imperial cities, but it is rich in history. The city’s most famous site is Le Tour Hassan, a tower built during the reign of Almohad ruler Yacoub el Mansour in the late 12th century.

Bariatric surgery, or weight loss surgery, includes a variety of procedures performed on people who are obese. Weight loss is achieved by reducing the size of the stomach with an implanted medical device.

By using suggestions, guided visualisation and hypnotic techniques, Hypnotherapy can reproduce all the physical benefits of Gastric Banding just as though it has been performed in the real physical world.

After using Hypnotherapy you will really believe and feel as though you have actually undergone an operation, but of course without any of the discomfort, pain and health risks of surgical intervention. 

Afterwards you should find that you can comfortably eat small portions of food, but larger meals will be uncomfortable, and if you ignore the subconscious message that tells you, you have “had enough” you may feel sick and actually be sick.  The power of the unconscious mind can cause strong physical and biological reactions and Hypnotherapy taps into this phenomenon. 

The memories of the operation should remain with you so that you are always aware of the reduced size of your stomach, and the impact this will have on your eating habits.  The whole Virtual Gastric Band experience using Hypnotherapy is painless, very relaxing, yet at the same time realistic and effective.

Research shows that Virtual Gastric Band operations using Hypnotherapy are more successful than the real thing, with the added bonus that there are no medical complications, drugs or side effects. In 2009 it was reported in The Daily Mail that a mother of 3 lost 4 stone with this method.

It can cost more than £7,000 to have a real gastric band fitted privately and it is only available on the NHS in extreme circumstances or where all other attempts to lose weight have failed. The surgery involves fitting a band around part of the stomach which slows the passage of food and restricts the amount the stomach can hold.

With many Hypnotherapy sessions there is the added benefit of soothing music at strategic points, helping the listener to relax even more, and absorb the information whilst the therapist guides the listener with gentle suggestions, positive language, and life changing imagery.

During Hypnotherapy, whether it is self-hypnosis by way of a CD or mp3 download, or face-to-face, rest assured that you will always be in control at all times, able to awaken immediately should the need arise and attend to anything that you need to. Hypnotherapy cannot make you do anything or say anything that you would not normally say or do, and it will never coerce you to try to do so.

It is important if you attend a clinic or a therapist’s practice for face-to-face Hypnotherapy that you enquire about reversing the Gastric Band operation. If your subconscious mind is responding the way you want it to, it makes sense to use the same method to undo the process, rather than just ignoring the feelings that you still have one fitted. So check with your Hypnotherapist what they offer in this case, and ask things such as  “do I have to return to have this done, if so what will it cost?”  “What if you are not available or I can’t afford to return?”

If you buy a Self-Hypnosis CD or mp3 download, check that a Virtual Gastric Band Removal or Reversal session is included, otherwise you will have to pay more to buy another session!

Remember, Self-Hypnosis is a powerful self-help tool for implementing change within your life. It is simple, effective, and non-invasive, produces long-term changes, and can be used by almost everyone.  By using self-hypnosis pre-recorded material such CDs and mp3 downloads, you will have at the touch of button, a full Hypnotherapy session that can be used whenever you need to, as often as you need to. It’s as simple as that.

Happy Travelers Go to Washington, D.C.

Image by Old Shoe Woman
On Sunday, May 1, 2011; the Happy Travelers enjoyed breakfast at the Hampton Inn in Chantilly, VA. Our bus driver took us to Arlington National Cemetery where we met our guide. We boarded the Tourmobile for a trip through the cemetery with stops at Kennedy’s grave and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Before leaving the cemetery, we toured the Women in Military Museum.

Next our bus took us to the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History. There we ate lunch at the Atrium Cafe. We saw the Hope Diamond, an Insect Zoo, and shopped in the gift shops.

Finally our bus drove us to the Holiday Inn in Sterling, VA where we enjoyed a delicious buffet with turkey, fish, mashed potatoes, green beans, salad, and Tiramisu. While we ate, we were enjoyed by the band, Just Friends. After the meal, several people enjoyed getting up on the dance floor and entertaining everyone else.

Again we enjoyed our last night at the Hampton Inn in Chantilly, VA.

2009 08 01 – 8087 – Washington DC – 930 Club – Xavier Rudd
washington bands
Image by thisisbossi
Xavier Rudd was phenomenal: the best concert I’ve been to at the 9:30 Club, and very likely in the running (and perhaps winner) of the best concert I’ve ever been to… ever.

I never heard of Xavier Rudd until about a month before the concert, when my friend Lindsey sent me a link to a Youtube video & asked if I wanted to go. The sound of the didgeridoos w/ a rock ensemble instantly grabbed my attention, so I readily said "yes".

Xavier is a relaxed guy… he’s so peaceful, and his charisma grabs at the audience — drawing them right into every song. His talent is tough to equate: he swapped instruments every song, and I was impressed with how — in the same song: he could play a guitar, play percussion, sing vocals, and blow into the didge. Bravo.

The two others on stage — one on drums and one on bass — both had distinct personalities; and both frequently emerging from their background positions (if ever it could be said they were much more background than Xavier was). It’s rare to see bassists stay in the spotlight: but this bassist was on center stage the whole show.

Even the stagehand joined on banjo at one point, and dagnabit he was good… if only they put some more light on him & gave him a little more airtime. It’s not often a stagehand has his own stagehand.

When I saw the Disco Biscuits back on 4/20: the show was stellar, but the crowd was disappointing. Granted, I’m straight edge… so I don’t smoke nor drink… so yeah, I was well aware that I was seeing a pot band on April 20th. Nonetheless, the crowd was downright obnoxious and ruined what could’ve otherwise been a great show. Here with Xavier Rudd, however: the crowd was by and large coherent and able to leap about, scream, and throw up their arms without spilling their drinks all over the place or falling into everyone around them.

One exception was during the last two songs, when in separate events the girl behind me dropped her beer on me… and then the girls in front of me rushed the stage — causing every other woman in the front to also rush; and women further back to make an attempt. One girl on stage may or may not have been aware that she was falling out of her dress in front of everyone. The woman that ended up in front of me — almost separating me from Lindsey & successfully separating a nearby couple — got to experience my "OMG I’M A DRUNK FANBOY LOLZ" personality, which is amazing at getting annoying people away from me. She got out of there in about a minute.

I’ve gone from having never heard of Xavier Rudd to joining every social networking outlet he has… now I’m holding my breath for when he returns, and I have a newfound desire to pick up a didgeridoo during my trek to Oceania this winter.

Who’s Steering The Ship, Congress Or The President?

Washington’s currant lawmakers and others, (including civil servants and contractors) have forsaken the public interest in adopting an attitude ranging anywhere from “don’t give a hoot” to “downright hostile.”

The common consensus amongst tax payers is that there are too dang many civil servants and to make matters worse, everyone agrees they are outrageously overpaid. They have a “don’t care” attitude and there is no consistently in their delivery of quality services. It also seems many people believe government has doled out contracts to favored contractors who are belligerent, overpaid and many are blatantly corrupt as many never deliver results stipulated on existing contracts.  

All the while, government employees contend there is too much government outsourcing and many services should be returned to civil servants. (Yah right – sounds like Socialism)  In March, former comptroller general David M. Walker said about the Defense Department, “There is a need to focus greater attention on what type of functions should be contracted out and which ones should not.” Another March report from the Government Accountability Office concluded, “A major concern is the risk of loss of government control over and accountability for mission-related policy and program decisions.” (what the heck does that mean?)

There’s no accountability to the people.

It looks like they need more accountability and less frivolous bickering, but then, who am I to say. I’m only a tax payer and my opinion doesn’t count for anything. No one ask the tax payers, we only pay the bills we’re not some liberal Ivy League professor which means; we are not qualified to give an opinion. I’ll give my unauthorized opinion, “there’s too many “lifers” in Washington.” Government’s temperature should be taken from the conscience of its masses and not just a few self-serving lifers. 

Let’s face it, government employees don’t have such a great track record. If you don’t believe it, try conversing with one of them. In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, the Mayor of New Orleans and the Governor of Louisiana failed to commutate with The Federal Emergency Management Agency which never got their act together. If we were better prepared for what could happen we wouldn’t have to react to what did happen.  

If the farmers of America had such a track record, we would all starve to death.

While the press was busy crucifying FEMA nothing got done. Just the same old hype, and over reacting to politics and not enough action on the problem. Every one wants something to be done but no one offers a solution. Just a lot of complaining and finger pointing, but then, that’s what we are best at, isn’t it.

Their always passing the buck.

FEMA was blamed for its lack of preparedness and inadequate response but then no one could have imagined the magnitude of the situation. Washington was in a reaction mode and was not prepared nor can they ever be prepared for such extremes.

Poor Performance And Don’t Care Attitude

There are innumerous instances of poor performance and contract management by federal agencies. Many agencies abilities and procedures have been questioned, ranging from the collapse of the FBI’s Virtual Case File project to the Census Bureau’s problems with developing handheld computers for data collection. The State Department, US Immigration Services, US Customs and others have our boarders in shambles. It’s become just another politician’s way of validating their jobs and funneling money to their cronies. When it comes time to act there is only reaction because there are no ground rules. In 2007 the State Department couldn’t handle the simple task of an order from Homeland Security to get passports in order.  

There’s need for change, but at who’s expense?

Whoever the new administration, he has the insurmountable task of correcting over “one hundred forty two years of mismanagement” and attempt to revitalize America and bring it into the Twenty First Century. America must become a leader in something other than touting superiority and Military domination.  

This is exactly the result Southern leaders feared when the Northern Government forced their ideology onto them. Dominance, forced policies and no accountability. 

There are tremendous challenges ahead which won’t get done without total cooperation from all public servants.

Government Governing Civilians

Should government develop administrative overseers and turn the business of application to civilians? (of the people for the people) Many government agencies have become outdated and ineffective. (we don’t need to keep building wagons when we have cars.)

The number of executive branch employees (excluding 747,000 U.S. Postal Service workers) stands at 1.89 million, where is the reasonability in that? There are police forces upon police forces, and department no one has even heard of. One small instance is the computer is slowly making the postal service unnecessary but special interest look after the 750,000 jobs at stake. We no longer need an army of people delivering junk mail, yet it and many other outdated agencies will continue to operate at the expense of the taxpayers.

Should the government be an administrative facilitating body for a citizen workforce?  Can and will the new administration train governments employees and contractors to  become one workforce undivided as they develop and implement new and old technologies for the betterment of America? Will all Americans share the prosperity of developing new energy technologies? Will wealth become a universal condition of citizenship?

Change the rules

In developing future rules of engagement there must be better defined relationships between government and citizen.  Government must stop being the aggressor and become the comforter. It is in these assignments that challenges for future generations will bring our great nation into a transformation of a virtual land of equality and opportunity.

Dupont Circle Walking Tour
Event on 2016-09-10 11:00:00
Tour Dupont Circle With Washington Walks

Named for a prominent Delaware family, Dupont Circle evolved from a hardscrabble "wilderness" to Washington's most fashionable address by the close of the 19th century. Today it's one of the D.C. area's most vibrant neighborhoods for visitors and locals alike. The mansions and elegant rowhouses remain, many as single-family residences. Others house museums, bed and breakfasts, embassies or nonprofit organizations. The neighborhood has evolved as the heart of the local LGBT community. Get a comprehensive overview on this guided two-hour walking tour from Washington Walks. You'll start with a look at a "brewmaster's castle," then it's on to Dupont Circle itself, where people-watching and chess matches are favorite pasttimes. The National Trust for Historic Preservation is headquartered nearby in a former luxury apartment building. A church that rose from the ashes to become a beacon of social activism is next, followed by a block of stunning rowhouses designed by one of D.C.'s most prolific architects. The walk concludes at its original starting point, the Dupont Circle Metro station.

The Amy Clampitt Memorial Reading with Billy Collins
Event on 2016-09-09 17:00:00
Famous for his wit and insight, former poet-laureate of the United States Billy Collins will read selections of his work. This event is made possible through support of the Amy Clampitt Fund, a fund of the Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation. Dubbed “the most popular poet in America” by Bruce Weber in the New York Times, Billy Collins is famous for conversational, witty poems that welcome readers with humor but often slip into quirky, tender or profound observation on the everyday, reading and writing, and poetry itself. John Updike praised Collins for writing “lovely poems…Limpid, gently and consistently startling, more serious than they seem, they describe all the worlds that are and were and some others besides.” But Collins has offered a slightly different take on his appeal, admitting that his poetry is “suburban, it’s domestic, it’s middle class, and it’s sort of unashamedly that.” Collins’s level of fame is almost unprecedented in the world of contemporary poetry: his readings regularly sell out, and he received a six-figure advance when he moved publishers in the late 1990s. He served two terms as the US Poet Laureate, from 2001-2003, was New York State Poet Laureate from 2004-2006, and is a regular guest on National Public Radio programs. In 2002, as U.S. Poet Laureate, Collins was asked to write a poem commemorating the first anniversary of the fall of the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center on September 11. The reading was in front of a joint session of Congress held outside of Washington D.C.
