Prayer for Peace

Lord Jesus Christ, who are called the Prince of Peace, who are yourself our peace and reconciliation, who so often said, “Peace to you,” grant us peace. Make all men and women witnesses of truth, justice, and brotherly love. Banish from their hearts whatever might endanger peace. Enlighten our rulers that they may guarantee and defend the great gift of peace. May all peoples on the earth become as brothers and sisters. May longed for peace blossom forth and reign always over us all.

“Daca nu sunteti vanatori si pescari puneti mana pe toiag si colindati mostenirea aceasta fara pereche. Nicaieri in lume nu sunt locuri mai frumoase, n-am spus ca avem cele mai alese frumuseti din lume, ci ca si aici sunt privelisti tot asa de frumoase ca cele mai laudate de aiurea. Cel care vede Delta intelege singuratatile Africii. Cel care suie in Calimani ori Retezatu, ori Ceahlau a trecut in zona fara de prihana a altei lumi.
Cei care sunteti vanatori sau pescari n-aveti nevoie de indemnul meu ca sa iesiti in mijlocul naturii. Dupa ani de rataciri si practica, vad ca imi mai raman totusi destule, necunoscute, si va indemn pe cei de la campie sa va suiti la munte, sa ascultati cerbul la inceputul toamnei, iar pe tovarasii vanatori din munte ii sfatuiesc sa incerce farmecul unei zile cu luntrea in singuratatile pruteturilor ori dunaritelor.”

Mihail Sadoveanu

Citatul zilei

“Un popor, ca si un copac si ca oricare alta fiinta organica, nu poate inainta decat din sine insusi, decat dezvoltandu-si treptat aptitudinile si puterile sale innascute.”

Mihai Eminescu

A paradise for true cars aficionados

Lake George, NY
Fort William Henry Hotel in Lake George Village

It was a cannot-miss car show, around 1600 beautiful classic cars, trucks, customs parts, equipment, services and much more, FREEDOM. The 32nd edition of Adirondack Nationals Car show started on Thursday, September 9th, 2021 and ended on Sunday September 12th, four days of the roars of the engines. Cruises ran north to south on Canada Street (main street) of Lake George Village, NY, then back south to north. Hundreds of chairs and people were line-up to watch the show. Our camping was right on Canada street and we can hear that roaring even at 3 am, one of the noises which somehow doesn’t bother me at all. They held an award ceremony with many awards, favorite Corvette Award, Favorite Mustang Award, etc. I wish that by the time this post is online I could find some info or pictures related to the 2021 winners of 32nd edition. I believe everyone got something to win, quality and amazing time outside the box.
