    Hey All

    Post by nana_nytowl on Tue Nov 15, 2016 7:44 pm

    Hi All,   Offering

    I guess I had a membership here long ago, but didn't even realize it.  I came here looking for a very special person (Genkicoll).  I was told/reminded of this site by a friend at ZooTek Phoenix.

    Have missed you and thought of you so many times Genki.  It wouldn't let me PM you.

    SO, I guess I'm back.. it will be nice to get to know you all.  Happy bounce

    Slow?  I thought/think it's pretty quick, actually.

    And I don't remember the son, but think I remember he was cute.

    Did you ever see David Carradine in "Alcatraz, The Whole Shocking Story"?  He (and it) were really good (but I have a fascination with Alcatraz. I've been there twice since my sister lives in Alameda - near San Francisco)

    hmmmm   Hmm...


    I am not sure if I saw that ... and I usually watch anything connected with Alcatraz.

    The name alone is fascinating ...

    Like you ... there is something abut the infamous Alcatraz that draws me ..

    And lucky you to have been there !!      

    It looks as if it is imbued with ghosts ...

    So much history   ....

    WOW!!!  Have NEVER found someone as fascinated with Alcatraz as I am!!  Two thumbs up Clap

    As I said, my sister lives out there and had never been there till about a year ago (maybe a bit less) but she took a bunch of pictures and told me to choose my favorite.  I couldn't pick one so picked a bunch and said she could choose.  Then she sent me a package with 4 8x10 pics.  I was psyched and they are all now hanging on my living room wall.

    I think we're going to get along great. And I'm so glad to have met you.  Hug

    Well, ( belated ) good morning   Sunny.

    Elk grin   Yup .. another like-minded Alcatrazian lover.  The name alone conjures up so many things.



    Sometimes I forget I have a computer even though I am on it nearly 24/7 for dragons and games and emails.

    So .. I have a wee treat for you ...



    Alcatraz means Pelican

    November 27, 2009 in Amateur, Opinion | Tags: Adam Fortunate Eagle, CNN, Ilka Hartmann, Indian Occupation of Alcatraz



    The first Spaniard to discover the island was Juan Manuel de Ayala in 1775, 


    who charted San Francisco Bay and named the island “La Isla de los Alcatraces,” 


    which translates as “The Island of the Pelicans,” from the archaic Spanish alcatraz, “pelican”,


     a word which was borrowed originally from Arabic: al-qaṭrās, meaning sea eagle.

    I prefer "sea eagle " .... 


    And ... you have many pictures ???

    If you are  computer savvy ... how about the following ???

    Scan them into your computer and >>>>  VOILA !!!  a screensaver !!

    Maybe even an Avatar for here or any other site you play in !!!

    Your sister sounds like a real sweetie to get so many photos for you.

    Bet that wall looks magnificent !!!  1star 1star 1star 1star 1star


    Embarrassed    aw shucks ....  Snicker


    I think so too ...    Smile

    AND ... the pleasure of meeting is all OURS !!!!  Big smile   Hug

    I have some of my sister's pictures here on my computer and have used one or two of them.  I have pictures of the ones on the wall (how they're hung) but couldn't figure out how to upload them here.  I also wrote a poem about Alcatraz and if I can find it, I'll post it.

    Do you have a Facebook page?  I could send you the pics there no problem.  My name on Facebook is "Sarahbeth Capen" because my real name got "submarined."  You're more than welcome to send me a friend request there if you do.

    Hug

    PS.  I did know that about how Alcatraz got it's name.

    Oh damn ...  

    Thought I was being brilliant ... and you already have done that with the pictures.      


    In the cyber world .. I tend to keep as low a profile as possible.

    So I post here and do emails ... and that is about it.    

    My brother and I are both only children ...   ... so it keeps a perfect distance between us.    


    If we had not talked ... I never would have looked up  Alcatraz, learning what it meant.

    I just like the sound  ...
