This blog has no real theme. I'll just post here anything that interests me. Themes may include technology, literature, politics, religion, peace initiatives, personal rants, and many other things. Read if you wish, but be careful - my skills as a "Moonie" may bring me to brainwash you.
Hi there, just wanted to post this simple thing. The official state song of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, the 6th American British colony to sign to become part of the United States of America, and the 13th most populous U.S. state. You can find out about your own state song at the 50 States website.
All Hail To Massachusetts
Written by Arthur J. Marsh
All hail to Massachusetts, the land of the free and the brave!
For Bunker Hill and Charlestown, and flag we love to wave;
For Lexington and Concord, and the shot heard 'round the world;
All hail to Massachusetts, we'll keep her flag unfurled.
She stands upright for freedom's light that shines from sea to sea;
All hail to Massachusetts! Our country 'tis of thee!
All hail to grand old Bay State, the home of the bean and the cod,
Where pilgrims found a landing and gave their thanks to God.
A land of opportunity in the good old U.S.A.
Where men live long and prosper, and people come to stay.
Don't sell her short but learn to court her industry and stride;
All hail to grand old Bay State! The land of pilgrim's pride!
All hail to Massachusetts, renowned in the Hall of Fame!
How proudly wave her banners emblazoned with her name!
In unity and brotherhood, sons and daughters go hand in hand;
All hail to Massachusetts, there is no finer land!
All hail to Massachusetts! All hail! All hail! All hail!
Posterity: you will never know how much it has cost my generation to preserve your freedom. I hope you will make good use of it.

Tap water in Norwegian capital unsafePublished: Oct. 17, 2007 at 6:38 PM
OSLO, Norway, Oct. 17 (UPI) -- Water and sanitation officials in the Norwegian capital of Oslo issued a warning Wednesday that the city's tap water supply was unsafe for consumption.
The Oslo Department of Water and Sanitation said in a news release that the presence of microscopic Giardia lamblia and cryptosporidium parasites had made tap water unsafe and urged citizens to boil their water before consumption or use, Aftenposten said.
The bacteria found in Oslo's water supply is identical to the microscopic parasites found in the tap water used in the city of Bergen.
Food Safety Authority district chief Kjetil Berg said the parasites, which initially come from animal or human excrement, cause numerous physical symptoms in humans when consumed.
"One can get stomach and intestinal infection. Symptoms can include stomach pain, diarrhea and pyrosis (heartburn). From Bergen we have unfortunately seen that increasing numbers are ill for an extended period and have symptoms of exhaustion," Berg said.
Aftenposten said authorities did not know how long it would take to clear Oslo's water supply of the parasitic infection.© Copyright United Press International. All Rights Reserved.
