Welcome to the monthly Lunch About Nothing in Westminster


Lunch About Nothing with approximately 35 of my best friends. Rafael's 32 West Main St. 28Jan2019

Welcome to Lunch About Nothing, September 24, 2018. Held the fourth Monday of the month at Rafael's in Westminster (not necessarily the last Monday) 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm. Next lunch February 25. Just buy your lunch from a great menu of salads and fresh sandwiches.

Make new contacts and see friends. Business is everywhere if you look. Bring some friends. Bring plenty of business cards and fliers. Be prepared to introduce yourself with a 30 second elevator speech. You can even bring a few things to sell if you are a crafter or artist.

It is important to keep your name out there. You never know where the business is and name recognition is important when someone needs your service or product.

It is a good place to look for a new employee or to get your name out there for a job. Long term relationships will bring you business. No need to RSVP. You do not need to join. The group is open. Invite your friends and new people you meet.



Some of the folks at the Lunch About nothing on Monday, January 28, 2019 included:

NAACP monthly meeting reminder – TODAY – this evening, Thursday, January 24, 2019

NAACP monthly meeting reminder – TODAY – this evening, Thursday, January 24, 2019

This month, our meeting will take place this evening Thursday, January 24, 2019 at 7 p.m. in 1st floor conference room Carroll Non-Profit Ctr on 255 Clifton Blvd.

Monthly meetings are every 4th Thur. of the month at 7 p.m. in 1st floor conference room Carroll Non-Profit Ctr on 255 Clifton Blvd. November and December meetings are held on 3rd Thursdays.

Hopefully this evening we will hear more about the annual Union Memorial Baptist Church Slave Narratives presentation from Carroll County NAACP Executive Board member Diane Hurd.

Save the date: The 2019 “Slave Narratives” program at the Union Memorial Baptist Church will take place this year during Black History month on February 23rd, 2019.

Carroll County NAACP Executive Board member Diane Hurd reports that more detailed information will follow soon.

She also reports that that this year’s program will include 14 narratives – and she still needs a few more readers. So if you are interested in participating in this moving and informative program, please contact E. Board Member Hurd

I have written about this event in the past. It is well-worth squeezing the event into a busy calendar. I have written about the event in the past. On March 5, 2017 I wrote: “Time Flies: Dayhoff: Slave Narratives bring to life a glimpse at Maryland's dark past.”

If serious threatening vitriolic hate mail is any measure of the quality of a newspaper article, I scored well. It all goes with the territory I guess. SMH.

Please enjoy, “Time Flies: Dayhoff: Slave Narratives bring to life a glimpse at Maryland's dark past.” http://www.carrollcountytimes.com/columnists/cctnews-dayhoff-0305-20170303-column.html 

March 3, 2017 - Last Saturday afternoon, 50 people gathered at the historic Union Memorial Baptist Church on Center Street in Westminster for a production of the "Maryland Slave Narratives." The production was an opportunity to pull back the curtain of time and take a glimpse at the dark past of slavery in America from the comfort and safety of sitting in the pews at church.

Super Blood Wolf Moon

Super Blood Wolf Moon

Sunday evening, Jan. 20, 2019 Kevin Dayhoff

I ventured out into the cold to attempt to get a few pictures of this evening’s lunar eclipse, the so-called, “Super Blood Wolf Moon.” And I mean cold. Here on the west end of Westminster, our thermometer was reading 15 degrees; although it is the wind that really made it miserable to stand out on the back patio and attempt to get a picture.

I froze my fingers off – and in the end I did not get a good picture. I was disappointed to not get a good picture, but it was still fascinating to observe. Apparently it does not happen again until 2022.

According to an article by Scott Dance, for the Baltimore Sun,Baltimore-area skies could clear in time for the 'Super Blood Wolf Moon' on Sunday night,” “Total lunar eclipses are known for creating “blood” moons because instead of fully darkening the moon behind Earth’s shadow, light that bends around Earth’s atmosphere can sometimes cast a reddish tint across it.

“This one is ‘super’ because it coincides with lunar perigee, when the moon is at its closest point to Earth in its elliptical orbit around the planet. Super moons can appear slightly larger and brighter than other full moons, though it can be hard to tell with the naked eye.

“And January’s full moon has long been known as the Wolf Moon, because of long howls the animals call out during their breeding season. It has also been known as the Old Moon, the Ice Moon, or the Moon After Yule.”


According to an article by Kendra Kent and Ben Dorenbach for Fox Carolina, “It's a crazy name for a large full moon undergoing a total eclipse on Sunday night! The term "wolf" comes from the Native American tradition of naming the full moon in January after the wolf (apparently wolves howl more during the early, coldest part of the year to communicate with their pack mates.) Rest the rest of the article, “Super blood wolf moon happening tonight,” here: https://www.foxcarolina.com/weather/weather_blog/super-blood-wolf-moon-happening-tonight/article_7f26296e-183d-11e9-b75d-67df505234ac.html

Meanwhile in Alaska, where it’s warmer than here in Carroll County, KTUU posted this picture of “Once in a blue moon, we have a Super Wolf Blood moon.” Tracy Sinclare wrote, Sat., Jan. 19, 2019 - , “ANCHORAGE (KTUU) — It’s a rarity — a total lunar eclipse that coincides with the moon being at its closest point to Earth. On Jan. 20, 2019 North and South America will be able to see the Super Wolf Blood moon. The ‘super’ part is a result of the moon at perigee when the moon is at its nearest point to Earth during its orbit. It will appear seven to 14 percent bigger than a ‘regular’ moon.

“Every full moon during the year has a name. According to the Farmer’s Almanac, the January full moon is the ‘wolf’ moon. ‘Amid the cold and deep snows of midwinter, the wolf packs howled hungrily,’ the Almanac reads.

“And it’s a ‘blood’ moon because of the total lunar eclipse which makes the moon appear red or orange. During a total lunar eclipse, the sun, Earth, and moon are aligned in space. Light gets refracted around the earth, and Earth’s atmosphere strips out the blue light leaving red, orange, and gold to reflect on the moon.

“‘How gold, orange, or red the Moon appears during a total lunar eclipse depends on how much dust, water, and other particles are in Earth's atmosphere, as well as factors such as temperature and humidity,’ according to NASA.”

Time Flies Dayhoff: America's oldest banker when he died, John Cunningham enjoyed walking, cycling and poker


Time Flies Dayhoff: America's oldest banker when he died, John Cunningham enjoyed walking, cycling and poker

January 11, 2019 by Kevin Dayhoff

As we put away another year and look forward to a new one, it is only fitting that we remember one of the many great Carroll Countians that have gone before us: John H. Cunningham.

On Dec. 31, 1965, John Cunningham passed away within a few hours of his 99th birthday. Local historian Jay Graybeal wrote of “his rich life, including his interests in bicycling, walking and poker,” in a March 16, 1997 column in the Carroll County Times.

[…]

Cunningham was born on New Year’s Day in 1867. According to his obit, “On January 1, 1885, while a senior at Western Maryland College, Mr. Cunningham began his banking career as a clerk with the Farmers and Mechanics National Bank, [at 105 E. Main St. in Westminster] following the footsteps of his father William, who was a clerk there.”

He worked in the same office, with the same employer for his entire life — from 1885 until when he passed away in 1965. “Many days he walked the mile to work from his home at 95 West Green Street.”

Slain Davis police officer Natalie Corona


Slain Davis police officer Natalie Corona

Wow – so sad: “… but authorities say Limbaugh walked up to a traffic accident that Corona was called to and started shooting at her patrol car, a fire truck and a minivan…”

I guess this reinforces our training about safety perimeters. According to ODMP: “As Officer Corona was conducting an investigation at the collision scene a person not involved with the crashed rode up to the scene on a bicycle. As Officer Corona spoke to one of the persons involved in the crash the man then walked up to her and opened fire without warning, striking her. He shot her several more times after she fell to the ground before shooting randomly at others bystanders and vehicles…”


The story behind this image of slain Davis police officer Natalie Corona

DAVIS, Calif. (KTVU) - In the image, she's wearing a royal blue gown, carrying a black-striped American flag with a thin blue line streaked across it.

[…]

It's this compelling photograph of slain Davis police officer Natalie Corona that circulated throughout the country on Friday, hours after the 22-year-old was shot to death by a suspect identified on Saturday as Kevin Douglas Limbaugh, 48.

[…]

"I would like this photograph to serve as my gratitude for all those law enforcement men and women who have served, who are currently serving, and those who have died in the line of duty protecting our liberties in this great country," Corona wrote on her Facebook page on Oct. 21, 2016. She used the hashtags: #LawEnforcement #Blueline #Thankyou #Lausphotography.

[…]

Corona's father, Jose Merced Corona, spent 26 years as a Colusa County Sheriff's sergeant before retiring and getting elected to the county's Board of Supervisors last November. Her mother is a first-grade teacher, and two cousins are also in law enforcement, Gomez said.

[…]

She grew up in a tight-knit family in the Northern California town of Arbuckle. The family had emigrated from Mexico a few generations ago and had become established members of their community.

Grace Lutheran Church in Westminster, Md.



Caroline, Grammy, and I are on the altar guild at Grace Lutheran Church. Last Friday, 11Jan2019, The Altar Guild chair Cynthia Beckhardt, Caroline, and I changed-out the paraments at church. We changed the liturgical hangings for the altar, lectern, and pulpit. I really liked the views of the sanctuary after we turned-out the lights and took a few pictures. http://gracelc.org/
