Good point to look at all the same.

You got off lucky......
I spend about 30 minutes in the morning and 30 minutes in the afternoon.

On Sundays, it takes about 2-3 hours in the morning and about 30 minutes in the afternoon.

( I appologize I did not mean to way lay the thread).
I hope things work out - I read some of the article... a bit is involved regarding upsetting the area with a commercial venture - the casino - but then other partie(s) wants their own casino...

Regarding a line in a movie I saw online recently - paraphrasing: " I wish the natives were better at controling emigrants... " In other words - the USA and Canada belong to the various Native groups that lived here before the Europeans came and made up manifest destiny, etc. and stole the land and livelihood.

. Agreed! We all come from the earth we all need to care for her or she simply won't take care of us.
In my area I been seeing a lot of wildlife in the past few years I never seen growing up as a child. That is the work of the people who want to give back instead of take.

I always wondered how one could say "I" stole there land. I never stole anything, my parents or my grandparents never stole any land. We all worked extremely hard for what we have or had. We never expected anything from anyone. I was raised not to expect to feel entitled to anything. If you feel the need to look way in the past. My family leniage didn't even step foot here until the very late 1800s. Buy then everything was done. So why am I getting blamed for stealing land? I was raised to respect and care for our land. But to say I stole your land is like saying native Americans stole my wife 250 years ago.

We all come from the Earth but, as humans, we are one life form....... not separate life forms.
