Shoot Nineteen - Breaking Ground

Cairo- sort of. . .
As Mike found out Cairo is no longer the largest city on that continent, Lagos is. However, the other clues pointed directly to Cairo - as Jim, Carol, Milt, Elaine, Tony, Peyton, and Milt guessed!

"This Is Holy Ground!"

As many of you know, I spend anywhere from one to five days a week (depending on the season) volunteering at My Brothers' Keeper - a Christian ministry that "brings the love and hope of Christ to those we serve.'

For many years these services were distributed through their Easton facility. Not too long ago a warehouse in Dartmouth was secured for serving those in the the New Bedford/Fall River regions of the South Coast of MA. As I write this week's blog, a new building is being erected in Dartmouth!

Here the deacon is blessing the ground before the official groundbreaking ceremony - this blessing is another story all on its own!

Where in the World?

Better get out the atlas as this year I will be featuring some of the more famous cities of the world! Here are some interesting facts about one of them. Just what city would I be visiting? 

Despite the many reminders of World War II that still exist, much development continues to take place here. Today, it is one of the country’s fastest developing cities.

Its population is about 2 million people and is the home of the country’s largest university and home to tens of thousands of businesspeople and professionals recognized the world over.

when visiting the city start in Old Town, where the city’s historic center has been rebuilt. You will also find various churches such as St. John’s Cathedral which contains various tombs of eminent citizens, knights and regents, as well as many of Wit Stwosz’ gothic artworks. Many visitors spend considerable time at the Royal Castle, the King’s chambers and apartments, St. Anne’s Church and of course, the New Town.

city can lay claim to being the home of Marie Curie and Frederick Chopin

You’ll need this as the clues were pretty vague so far: you should not miss visiting the city’s Uprising Museum.

It does not matter if you fall down 
as long as you pick up something from the floor 
as you get up.
