Happy Holiday to all peoples of the world as tonight starts

15 posts in this topic

My Holiday,

Hanukkah, Chanukah, Chanukkah or Chanuka ( spelled many ways )

starts tonight at sundown ,Happy holidays to u all from my holiday

we call it celebration of the lights

It involves a miracle when it took 8 days to make oil for lamps and ancient Isreal found they had only had 1 days worth after their oil was destroyed by fleeing occupying forces that were overthrown & the one days worth lasted the full 8 till more could be made

sometimes u it falls out exactly on Christmas but Jewish Calender a bit weird compared to English one so every year different

when u see on a calender its the first day of a Jewish holiday, like calenders will say Sunday the 9th is the first day of this holiday

Thats means first full day but all holidays start at sundown the night before, that is tonight, and end on sundown the last day

For a present all I want IS THE COLTS TO DOMINATE TITANS TOMORROW

It's not necessarily weird, it's simply based off of a lunal calendar cycle (about 354 days in a year). Therefore there will be significant movement of the holiday each year (11 days). But no matter how ya slice it, happy holidays to all and GO COLTS!!!

Guess I should of said different than English calender

History of it is weird to us now but made sense in ancient times as the year varying at times based on ripening of various crops etc, , well in modern times, u distilled it down to the current approximate 11 day difference between 12 lunar months and 1 solar year. , also instead of a leap day every 4 years there is a leap month ever 2 or 3 years based on rules I dont remember

Thanks for the Happy holidays though and appreciate the refining of my original explanation of using the word weird, where I grew up and the fights I got in for being Jewish , weird is a pretty kind word to some of the names i was called , the religion was called & the varying days holidays fell on compared ( how it was put the normal religion , ) to the English calender as well as other Jewish aspects

again my thanks & my respects, Barry

find a dreidel hard, I love it, I have some wooden and plastic ones , varying sizes

wasnt asking for empathy.

I wouldnt change my childhood for anything else, was just stating something. u just must take all good and bad childhood , Like adult, situations and try to apply them in life to help toughen u up for when u grow up , u learn something from all experiences both good and bad

I feel I had a tremendous upbringing thanks top my beloved parents, pitfalls along the way of life are expected, as said just try & take the positive as best u can from any situation

Congratulations on your engagement, may u have a long and happy life together

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0039416/

its described there as - A reporter pretends to be Jewish in order to cover a story on anti-Semitism, and personally discovers the true depths of bigotry and hatred.

TRAILOR

Uploaded on Apr 24, 2009

Philip Green is a highly respected writer who is recruited by a national magazine to write a series of articles on anti-Semitism in America. He's not too keen on the series, mostly because he's not sure how to tackle the subject. Then it dawns on him: if he was to pretend to all and sundry that he was Jewish, he could then experience the degree of racism and prejudice that exists and write his story from that perspective. It takes little time for him to experience bigotry. He soon learns the liberal-minded firm he works for doesn't hire Jews and that his own secretary changed her name and kept the fact that she is Jewish a secret from everyone. Green soon finds that he won't be invited to certain parties, that he cannot stay in so-called 'restricted' hotels and that his own son is called names in the street. His anger at the way he is treated also affects his relationship with Kathy Lacy, his publisher's niece and the person who suggested the series in the first place. Written by garykmcd

NY TIMES REVIEW

http://movies.nytimes.com/movie/review?res=9E0DE7DE113AE233A25751C1A9679D946693D6CF

====================================================================

, now this is an old movie, I was born 1954 so grew up in 50's & 60's as far as childhood, what he experiences in movie was if remember right ,worse than mine but then again he wwas experiencing adult issues

BTW I lived in a predominantly Jewish Brooklyn NY area, was bothered by gangs not just because of being Jewish but for multitude of other childish reasons as well

In order to play in the schoolyard across the street u or a member of your friends from any religion had to fight a member of this large family for the right to play there, u win fine, but heres the catch, no one ever knew the exact # of children in this family and sooner or later there was always 1 that was a monster, and thgey had various ones that were monsters in size & strength , so sooner oor later u know u got your a --- kicked but good

again just toughened me up for adulthood

enjoy your family reunion, all fine here , i

 

I really k like good black & white movies esp with great stars its amazing how younf dean stockwell is, , but saw this as a kid so all were back then virtually , its a really good picture , mine of course is from a jewish perspective , only issue is it portrays hhigh socirty basically and not what happened to ones like me in the trenches, i mean i cant as a child relate to not being allowed into a country club etc, unless its was a a kids club

 

the my colts and previous sites page was really great, had photos, not urls,  and since peyton left most taken down, and urls dont work from indy star , also stories are somewhat scattered among-st urls

 

this is v cool go here

 

go here   , very g hard to explai how to use but can always go back to original full  pages by clicking top part where says bayones colt page 

 

but if use links at right some take u to diifferent urls and then need to go back in browser, some key on , for example just the SI coveers, also if click on a cover or picture it enlarges , there is an x above ( IE ( )  it or near upper left  CHROME ) to get out of enlargement pending the browser ,

    • I think Marvin was the best route-runner in NFL history -- a big part of that was due to his very strong chemistry with Peyton.  I don't think any QB-WR duo will ever accomplish what those 2 did in terms of statistics or in terms the timing and awareness they had together.    I know of at least 2 top-tier DBs who played when Marvin was in the league (with Randy Moss, TO, and several other WRs who brought more attention to themselves for their antics than Marv did) who said Marv was the best they ever faced -- Charles 'Peanut' Tillman and Champ Bailey (probably the best DB in the NFL that had enough of a sample size against Marvin's class of WRs in their prime to make a solid judgement).     Just look at Marvin's NFL Records -- until OBJ comes close to doing anything like this, over this amount of time, I don't think people should be debating it:   NFL records -Most receptions in a single season with 143, set in 2002 -Most receptions in a 4 season period (469), 1999–2002; 5 season period (563), 1999–2003; 7 season period (731), 1999–2005; 8 season period (826), 1999–2006; 9 season period (885), 1998–2006; 10 season period (958), 1997–2006; 11 season period (1,022), 1996–2006 -Most receiving yards in a 4 season period (6,322), 1999–2002; 5 season period (7,594), 1999–2003 -Most games in a career with at least 8 receptions (51), 9 receptions (32), 11 receptions (12), 12 receptions (8) -Most consecutive games with at least 6 receptions (16) and 9 receptions (6) -Most consecutive seasons with at least 5 touchdowns (11) – shared with Jerry Rice, Don Hutson, Cris Carter, Tim Brown, Terrell Owens -Most consecutive seasons with at least 6 touchdowns (11) – shared with Terrell Owens, Jerry Rice, Don Hutson -Most consecutive seasons with at least 5 touchdown receptions (11) – shared with Jerry Rice, Don Hutson, Cris Carter, Tim Brown, Terrell Owens -Most consecutive seasons with at least 6 touchdown receptions (11) – shared with Jerry Rice, Don Hutson -Most consecutive seasons with at least 10 touchdown receptions (8) -Most consecutive seasons with at least 11 touchdown receptions (4)-tied with Lance Alworth, Art Powell -Most consecutive seasons with at least 14 touchdown receptions (2)-tied with Jerry Rice -Most Consecutive seasons with 1,400+ receiving yards (4); 1999–2002 -Most Consecutive seasons with 100+ receptions (4); 1999–2002 -Most Consecutive seasons with 82+ receptions (8); 1999–2006 -Most games in a single season (2002) with at least 6 receptions (15), 7 receptions (12), 8 receptions (12), 9 receptions (10), 11 receptions (5) -Most games in a season with at least 13 receptions (2) in 1999 – tied with several players - Marvin Harrison and Peyton Manning currently hold the record for most completions between a Wide Receiver and Quarterback with 953. - Marvin Harrison and Peyton Manning currently hold the NFL record for passing touchdowns between a WR and QB with 112. - Marvin Harrison and Peyton Manning currently hold the NFL record for passing yards between a WR and QB with 12,756. -Marvin Harrison and Peyton Manning currently hold the NFL record for completions in a season between a WR and QB with 143 in 2002. - First player to record 2 seasons of 1,600 yards receiving in NFL history, (1999 & 2002). (Torry Holt became the 2nd, (2000 & 2003) - First player to have 50+ receptions in his first 11 seasons in NFL history. (Torry Holt became the 2nd on December 27, 2009) -Most consecutive seasons of 1,000+ all-purpose yards and 10+ touchdown receptions (8), 1999–2006 -On December 18, 2006, Marvin Harrison and Indianapolis Colt teammate Reggie Wayne became the only NFL wide receiver tandem to catch 75 receptions and 1,000 yards in 3 straight seasons. The game was on Monday Night and was played against the Cincinnati Bengals. -On November 17, 2002, made his 600th career reception against the Dallas Cowboys -On October 12, 2003, made his 700th career reception against the Carolina Panthers.

    • He'll be fine and I mean, he's going to be here the next 6 years.  There's no perfect QB and even the very good one's have droughts, bad games here and there, etc.  Nothing wrong with being frustrated with that, but it'd jsut be nice if people could accept players with their faults and understand that sometimes, things aren't going to be perfect all of the time.  Accepting it doesn't mean you approve of it.  But it would be nice if, after a bad week, we don't always start to question what type of QB Luck is.  I'm not accusing you of anything, you've always been level headed from my perspective.     Anyhow, at this point, he's a good QB, not much is going to change that between now and retirement, assuming something catastrophic doesn't happen like he gets shot buying groceries or injured into retirement.  Whether or not he'll ever be a great QB or better is a 15-20 year journey that we can't ever know the answer until it's obvious.  Right now it isn't because, as most people should understand, we're only 5 years into that 15-20 year career.  
    • I hope you're kidding on this, honestly.   OBJ came in as a rookie with a most-likely future HOF QB throwing to him.  Marvin came in with Jim Harbaugh, who although is one of my all-time favorite Colts, was not much more than a mediocre NFL QB.  Sure, Marv's rookie year he had Marshall Faulk (who rushed for a whopping 587 yards with a 3.0 average YPC) -- in fact, the Colts rushed for only 1,448 yards Marv's rookie year compared to the Giants who rushed for 1,603 total yards (in a more pass-heavy league, they had 2 guys who exceeded Marshall Faulk's rushing production if you compare side by side).  Marv's supporting WR cast his rookie year included the great Sean Dawkins, the amazing Aaron Bailey, and the very feared threat Brian Stablein.  He also had Ken Dilger (a very average NFL TE), and Marcus Pollard (who had a grand total of 6 receptions in 1996).  In total, as a rookie, Marv led the Colts in receiving yards and receptions, with Sean Dawkins and Faulk being the only 2 to have >50 receptions and Dilger being the only other to have >40 receptions and Lamont Warren as the only other to have >20 receptions.  In 1997 (Marv's second year), Sean Dawkins was the only other Colt to have >50 receptions, and Faulk the only to have >40 (Faulk rushed for 1,054 yards that year and the Colts rushed for 1,727 total).  Marv's 3rd year was Faulk's best year in Indy and Faulk led the team in receptions, with only he and Marv hauling in >50 receptions.  Marv's receiving cast included Torrance Small, Jerome Pathon, and the injured EG Green.  The TEs caught a total of 55 passes (Pollard and Dilger combined).  Peyton Manning broke the record for single-season interceptions thrown and the Colts were so good they went 3-13.  In 1999, Marv and Edge were the only 2 to have over 50 receptions, and Marv became a star with a receiving corps so good the next best WR was Terrence Wilkins!   OBJ as a rookie had a team that rushed for 1,603 yards, with 2 players (Andre Williams and Rashad Jennings) who outperformed Faulk in Marv's rookie year.  OBJ had Rueben Randle haul in 71 receptions (more than any Colt in 1996), and Larry Donnell haul in 63 receptions as a tight-end (which would have been second to Marvin as a rookie).  Eli threw for 4,410 yards compared to Jim Harbaugh, Paul Justin and Kerwin Bell combining for 3,544.  Did I mention, Eli is likely headed to the HOF, while Marvin was hauling in balls from that trio?    Marv didn't have Reggie until his 6th year in the league, he didn't have a solid QB until his 4th year in the league (Peyton's second year -- Peyton was very troubled as a rookie QB).  Marv had a worse running game than OBJ's team until his 4th year in the league when Faulk had a stellar season.  Marv's best compliment as WR was either Sean Dawkins, Torrence Small, or Terrence Wilkins until his 6th year, when Reggie had a stunning 27 receptions as a rookie.  In fact, Reggie didn't have over 50 receptions and become a legitimate threat across from Marvin until Marvin's 8th year in the league.   OBJ now has Sterling Sheperd and Victor Cruz alongside him, as very legitimate threats.  The one point I hope I made clear is that your argument holds no validity.  I also would like to point out that at this point in time, there is no way to compare OBJ to Marvin as a career WR.... OBJ has had 2 very good years in this league (a much WR and QB friendly league than when Marv started).... Marv had the best 4, 5,  7, 8, 9, 10, and 11 consecutive seasons out of any WR in NFL history... when OBJ comes close to doing any of that, we can revisit the topic.
    • My comment about Langford was a joke, obviously.   Every unit out played the defensive line, IMO. The Safeties have been the most consistent group on defense and the injury riddled CBs have played about as well as we could have hoped, really. Much of the yards you attribute to the "banged up secondary" falls on the LBs and dlines failure to create pressure and cover their responsibilities. As I said, I can see where people would say the LBs have been worse than the defensive line.

    • Hi, Nils here....   I know a lot of Europeans support the Patriots, but all I can say is no way man, no way!   I'm not entirely sure when I started to follow and cheer for the Colts, but I has no shame in admitting that it was when Manning begun to really shine. It was probably back in 1999 because I seem to remember that play-off game against the Titans.   I also remember the I loved how the Colts would play a beautiful offensive game whereas other teams were boring with their defensive strengths. Aaaahh, those were the days!   I was introduced to American Football during my American Politics/presidential election study in Washington D.C. in the fall of 1996 (Clinton vs Dole). Didn't really get attached to any team back then, so you can say that Redskins just left me totally uninspired.   It is a great and welcoming forum here - and that is just how I remembered America too.
