Easter Eggs Symbolize New Life Of all the symbols associated with Easter, the egg, the symbol of fertility and new life, is the most identifiable. The customs and traditions of using eggs have been associated with Easter for centuries. Originally Easter eggs were painted with bright colors to represent the sunlight of spring and were used in Easter-egg rolling contests or given as gifts. After they were colored and etched with various designs the eggs were exchanged by lovers and romantic admirers, much the same as valentines. In medieval time eggs were traditionally given at Easter to the servants. In Germany eggs were given to children along with other Easter gifts. Different cultures have developed their own ways of decorating Easter eggs. Crimson eggs, to honor the blood of Christ, are exchanged in Greece. In parts of Germany and Austria green eggs are used on Maundy Thursday (Holy Thursday). The Slavic people decorate their eggs in special patterns of gold and silver. In Germany and other countries eggs used for cooking where not broken, but the contents were removed by piercing the end of each egg with a needle and blowing the contents into a bowl. The hollow eggs were dyed and hung from shrubs and trees during the Easter Week. The Armenians would decorate hollow eggs with pictures of Christ, the Virgin Mary, and other religious designs. At the Jewish Passover Seder, a hard-boiled egg dipped in salt water symbolizes both new life and the Passover sacrifice offered at the Temple in Jerusalem.

How the internet saved Russia from the hardliners This is from Google, see the link http://www.google.com/help/netneutrality_letter.html The Internet as we know it is facing a serious threat. There's a debate heating up in Washington, DC on something called net neutrality � and it's a debate that's so important Google is asking you to get involved. We're asking you to take action to protect Internet freedom. In the next few days, the House of Representatives is going to vote on a bill that would fundamentally alter the Internet. That bill, and one that may come up for a key vote in the Senate in the next few weeks, would give the big phone and cable companies the power to pick and choose what you will be able to see and do on the Internet. Today the Internet is an information highway where anybody � no matter how large or small, how traditional or unconventional � has equal access. But the phone and cable monopolies, who control almost all Internet access, want the power to choose who gets access to high-speed lanes and whose content gets seen first and fastest. They want to build a two-tiered system and block the on-ramps for those who can't pay. Creativity, innovation and a free and open marketplace are all at stake in this fight. Please call your representative (202-224-3121) and let your voice be heard. Thanks for your time, your concern and your support. Eric Schmidt-Google

Another Interactive Version of Whats My Line Steve asked me to try this, so here goes. Let's pretend I'm John Daly, the distinguished host of What's My Line. All of you are the panelists. You are blindfolded as the mystery guest (who exists in my mind) enters the studio. The crowd cheers as he/she signs in and takes a seat next to Mr. Daly. Your task is to identify the mystery challenger from scratch. In the tradition of WML, you will ask questions that can only be answered yes or no. Of course the mystery guest is a famous person. The one quirk is that he/she may be deceased. Good luck! May we have the first question, please.

America Comes Of Age  The Scopes Trial America Comes Of Age July 10, 1925 - The Scope's Trial It was the early 1920s, social patterns were in chaos. Traditionalists worried that everything valuable was ending. Younger modernists sought society's approve of their behavior. Intellectual experimentation flourished. In a response to this new social patterns set in motion by modernism, a wave of revivalism developed, becoming especially strong in the American South.

Page and Plant cover Lead Belly Gallows pole The original source for Led Zeppelin's "Gallows Pole" was Leadbelly's "Gallis Pole." "Gallows Pole" on Led Zeppelin III is listed as "Traditional." On some of Leadbelly's recordings, however, songwriting credit is given to Leadbelly and John and Alan Lomax. Alan Lomax, along with his father John, were instrumental in popularizing a wide range of American folk music. Beginning in the 1930s, Alan Lomax produced a great volume of field recordings of folk musicians, focusing in particular on the American South. John and Alan Lomax first recorded Leadbelly while he was in prison and they brought him to national attention. Leadbelly was a master of many styles of music, wrote many songs and adapted many tunes that he had heard over the years. Jimmy Page said that he had heard a version of this song by an obscure folk artist named Fred Gerlach. Where Leadbelly and Fred Gerlach had each played "Gallis Pole" in a 12-string guitar, Led Zeppelin's recording features John Paul Jones on Mandolin and Jimmy Page on Banjo. Credit where credit is due... all info here is from turnmeondeadman.net and the vid is from the Page Plant No Quarter concert

Kate Smith Philadelphia Flyers Good Luck Charm One of sport's quirky and quaint traditions is the Philadelphia Flyers' use of Kate Smith as a good luck charm. The NHL team has a remarkable record whenever her version of God Bless America is played before games. Here is the late Kate making a surprise live appearance before a game in the 1976 Stanley Cup finals. (It didn't help; Montreal swept the Flyers in four straight games that spring.)
