June 27The first time I visited Florence Shelley, in November 2010, the culvert was full of brush and logs, and water was seeping over the causeway. Deposits of sticks indicated It had seen even higher levels. The highest water had eroded rocks and fill on the top and downstream side of the causeway. The stream and crossing were asking for help.
If anyone connected to Florence Shelly reads this, I would like to join you in ongoing care of the NC site. It is a treasure.
The water was very cold on that sunny November day. I cleared about a third of the culvert of debris. I was mesmerized watching the foam break up.

For three months, countless women came to Syracuse to bowl with the United States Bowling Congress, hosted by the Oncenter which installed 48 perfectly beautiful lanes. It was exciting to watch the bowlers make bowling look easy!

This is the Peace Wall dividing West Belfast at the point where great violence took place in the modern era starting the Troubles four decades ago. People on both sides have decided that the wall should come down but not for another generation.

Queen Elizabeth laid a wreath here and bowed her head in silence last month during the first visit by a reigning British monarch since Irish liberation. Her actions are viewed by most Irish people as an extremely significant step toward reconciliation.
The people scattered over the steps are young immigrants learning English.
