@SunWestminster: Columnist @kevindayhoff addresses Westminster #Christmas traditions in this week's Eagle Archives http://bsun.md/18HM1X2

The Christmas season has always been a special time in Westminster. For generations; long before our current tradition of an electric light parade right after Thanksgiving, the city came together for a community celebration and a parade called the Christmas Treat…

[…]

Times have changed. The center of town is now considered to be the park at Locust Lane. Government does not dare use the words "Christmas" or "Hanukkah." And technology, not fruit, is at the top of the Christmas list for most folks. In my childhood years in Westminster in the 1950s, our favorite fruit was not an "Apple" computer. A gift of oranges was considered to be particularly special…

Diary of an intensive-care nurse | New York Post

Diary of an intensive-care nurse | New York Post:


“Diary of an intensive-care nurse,” By Kristen McConnell December 9, 2012 in the New York Post http://nypost.com/2012/12/09/diary-of-an-intensive-care-nurse/

Poignant words from “Diary of an intensive-care nurse,” By Kristen McConnell December 9, 2012 in the New York Post: “… I also understood the nurses who voice their advocacy of natural death — and their fear of ending up like some of our patients — in regular discussions of plans for DNR tattoos. For example: ‘I am going to tattoo DO NOT RESUSCITATE across my chest. No, across my face, because they won’t take my gown off. I am going to tattoo DO NOT INTUBATE above my lip.’ Another nurse says that instead of DNR, she’s going to be DNA, Do Not Admit… But the oldest nurse on my unit has instructed her children never to call 911 for her…”

Ronald LeRoy Rognlien, 61, traveled the world through work and service



Ronald LeRoy Rognlien, 61, a retired defense contractor and world traveler with family ties to Westminster, died unexpectedly from a heart attack at his home in Warrenton, Va., on Thursday, Dec. 19, 2013.

Born in 1952 in Baraboo, Wis.; he was the son of the late Stanley LeRoy Rognlien and the late Arlene Doris Jacobson Rognlien. His father served on submarines in the U.S. Navy during World War II in the Pacific, then worked throughout his career with Alcoa, the Aluminum Company of America. As a result, the family lived all over America.

After graduating with a degree in electrical engineering from Oregon State University, Mr. Rognlien followed in his father’s footsteps and served for 32 years as a defense contractor with the intelligence community -- a job that took him to some 68 countries over the years. His particular field of expertise was computer science and communications.

Mr. Rognlien married Marian Babylon in 1982 at Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church in Westminster.

After retirement, Mr. Rognlien continued serving others through volunteer and mission service. He again traveled the world, this time for recreation, and spent time in Westminster with his extended family. He enjoyed fishing in Alaska, playing math and word games like Sudoku, and drove the Alcan Highway and across the United States several times.

In addition to his training as an electrical engineer, he was handy with tools and home improvement projects. He was a veteran of many mission trips with Taylorsville United Methodist Church, helping those who had suffered from natural disasters. Those mission included trips to Biloxi, Miss. after Hurricane Katrina and New Jersey after Hurricane Sandy.

He volunteered at numerous Carroll County civic and community functions. He was handy with a chainsaw and was among the Taylorsville “wood chuckers,” who cut firewood for the needy. He was a serious student of golf.

Better to remain silent and be thought a fool

Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt. -- Abraham Lincoln. Also attr. Confucius, George Elliot, and Mark Twain 1835-1910. In the Bible, 'Proverbs' 17:28 also addresses the matter: Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise: and he that shutteth his lips is esteemed a man of understanding.

May 28, 1997 Giant Lava Lamp discovered on Kevin Dayhoff’s farm


May 28, 1997 Giant Lava Lamp discovered on Kevin Dayhoff’s farm

Kevin E. Dayhoff    Buzzard’s Crust Farm   
Press Release - For immediate Publication May 28, 1997

Excavations on Kevin Dayhoff’s farm in Patapsco confirm the early development of a Giant Lava Lamp.

Recently, while tilling his wife Caroline’s vegetable garden, Mr. Kevin Dayhoff discovered traces of a Giant Lava Lamp on his farm in Patapsco, Maryland.  Mr. Dayhoff was quite excited at this discovery, and called the Patapsco Daily Herald Bugle immediately with the news. 

According to Mr. Dayhoff, in ancient Patapsco folklore, a Giant Lava Lamp was once the focal point of an ancient Patapscoian religion, which has persistently been rumored to still be secretly practiced in the hills of Patapsco. 

In this ancient religion, every residence maintained an altar, centered on a gazing ball, many of which can still be found in the area.  This gazing ball altar was used to communicate with the spirit of the Great Lava Lamp Father who resided in the Temple of the Great Lava Lamp. 

Pink Flamingoes, which are indigenous to the Patapsco area, were considered to be the messenger bird of the Great Lava Lamp Father.  Pink Flamingoes are now on the endangered species list and, where their nests of inverted tractor tires are found, by law they cannot be disturbed. 


It is hoped that further excavations will provide insight into the culture of the Carthaginians who settled Patapsco after the Third Punic War in 206 BC.  The archeologists are curious if the Great Lava Lamp religion is something that the Carthaginians brought over with them or if it was a religion of the Petapsqui tribe of Native Americans known to have inhabited the Patapsco area, or perhaps a mixture of both.  As further research develops we will keep you informed.

Heavy snow surpassing forecasts, with ice still ahead - baltimoresun.com

Heavy snow surpassing forecasts, with ice still ahead - baltimoresun.com

Snowfall tops 6 inches in some areas, significantly more than forecast

http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/weather/weather-blog/bs-md-winter-weather-forecast-20131207,0,3336544.story

By Scott Dance and Michael Dresser, The Baltimore Sun 1:51 p.m. EST, December 8, 2013

Several inches of snow had fallen across much of the Baltimore area by midday Sunday, with as much as 5-7 inches in some spots, with ice still ahead as a winter storm that has traveled across the country packed more of a punch in Maryland than forecasters expected.

While a maximum of about 3 inches had been expected, 6 inches or more were measured across parts of Carroll, Baltimore and Harford counties with several inches still to the south. The snow was quickly covering roadways, prompting highway crews to urge motorists to stay home as they fight to keep up with the pace of the snowfall."
