    About The Ingalls Family by Sarah S. Uthoff 111 Comments littlehouseontheprairie.com
    “..Charles Phillip Ingalls or “Pa” (1836-1902)

    Charles had a wandering foot in all his various incarnations. In real life his family had long been farmers, moving several times while he was growing up in search of a better chance. Charles followed this same pattern with his own family after marrying Caroline Quiner, always in search of better financial opportunities, specifically a successful wheat farm. After many moves and attempts, with his family’s help Charles proved up his homestead, but due to health issues he retired from farming almost immediately afterward. Together Charles and Caroline built up one final home in De Smet, South Dakota. It’s known in Laura circles as the Third Street House and is where Charles and Caroline spent the rest of their respective lives…”

    “..Laura was both a pioneer and an author. She helped her family create a homestead, worked as a seamstress and taught school before marrying Almanzo James Wilder. They set out to build their own farm. They had several failed attempts before finally making a last fresh start in Mansfield, Missouri. They were able to improve their farm slowly until they had a modestly successful farm of over 200 acres. Laura’s work sharing information to improve farm life led to a semi-regular career writing mostly magazine articles for the Missouri Ruralist. Her own ambitions and her daughter Rose’s prodding led her to write and publish a fictionalized account of her childhood in the Little House books. The process of creating the series and later answering her fan mail would be her big project for the rest of her life…”

    Bill Cosby

    Bill Cosby’s Big Adventure vanityfair.com
    “..The Cosby/Wussler management group has plotted “a specific strategic plan,”designed to “dramatically enhance profitability right away, re-establish affiliate relations, and put the network back in the hands of TV professionals,” explained one source. Brandon Tartikoff, initially contacted last fall by Cosby, was formally asked to join the team by a Wall Street intermediary during the second week of June. Tartikoff declined both times. Cosby is, however, continuing his search for other members of a proposed triumvirate to run NBC. He himself would continue to perform, but would also put his philosophical imprint on all programming…

    original payment of $6.3 billion for the network and parent RCA, dreads a substantial write-down in the event of a sale. So they are suggesting, sources say, that the deal include some kind of “revenue stream” to G.E. over several years. Clearly, Welch wants more than the network is worth. And it’s worth less since those “G.E. weasels” (as Letterman calls them) have taken over. Cheers and Dave himself are history; aging hits are propping up NBC’s prime time, while the hot new shows are turning up elsewhere. ABC has replaced NBC as the family-friendly network, and even NBC News suffered because of deep cutbacks and the Dateline NBC—rigged G.M.-truck scandal. And Welch may be loath to delve into high-tech interactive television or expand further into cable until the network gets back on track…”

    ‘Cosby’ actor speaks out after being job-shamed online

    Woman regrets sharing photos of “Cosby Show” star Geoffrey Owens working at grocery story cbsnews.com

    Geoffrey Owens Says Lost ‘Cosby Show’ Residuals a Factor in His Trader Joe’s Job The Wrap Itay Hod,The Wrap Thu, Sep 6 6:27 PM CDT yahoo.com
    ‘Former “Cosby Show” star Geoffrey Owens says he took a job bagging groceries at Trader Joe’s in part because Bill Cosby’s abuse scandal cut into the income Owens received from “Cosby Show” residuals….

    Since “The Cosby Show” went off the air in 1992, Owens has acted on shows like “Blue Bloods,” “The Blacklist” and “The Affair.” But money became tight when networks began yanking “The Cosby Show” reruns from the air following dozens of rape accusations against Cosby…..

    “The Cosby Show” reruns had been a staple on cable television. But after dozens of women accused Cosby of drugging, raping, coercing or sexually assaulting them, networks began pulling the show’s reruns from their air. TV Land dropped reruns of the series in November 2014. Cable channels Bounce TV and Centric followed suit. The absence of “The Cosby Show” has meant fewer residual checks for the show’s cast.

    “The fact is, yeah, there was a certain amount of money that stopped coming in and that made a difference,” Owens said.

    Owens, best known for playing the Huxtables’ son-in-law Elvin Tibideaux on the hit ’80s sitcom, was thrust into the limelight over the weekend after a woman photographed him bagging groceries at a New Jersey Trader Joe’s. The photo led to a wider conversation about work ethic, and job-shaming.

    ..His hope now is that the conversation he helped spark continues, even if his grocery bagging days are over. Owens quit his job because of the recent attention. After the photos went viral, filmmaker Tyler Perry offered him a job on an OWN drama, which Owens accepted.

    It was a Hollywood ending even Owens couldn’t have anticipated.

    “It was really generous of him to do that and to do that so publicly,” Owens said of Perry. “It was very bold and courageous and generous of him.”

    Cosby, who has denied any wrongdoing, was convicted in April of drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand at his Pennsylvania home 14 years ago.”

    Elvis Presley From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    “..Presley was born in Tupelo, Mississippi, and relocated to Memphis, Tennessee, with his family when he was 13 years old. His music career began there in 1954, recording at Sun Records with producer Sam Phillips, who wanted to bring the sound of African American music to a wider audience. Accompanied by guitarist Scotty Moore and bassist Bill Black, Presley was a pioneer of rockabilly, an uptempo, backbeat-driven fusion of country music and rhythm and blues. In 1955, drummer D. J. Fontana joined to complete the lineup of Presley’s classic quartet and RCA Victor acquired his contract in a deal arranged by Colonel Tom Parker, who would manage the singer for more than two decades. Presley’s first RCA single, “Heartbreak Hotel”, was released in January 1956 and became a number one hit in the United States. With a series of successful network television appearances and chart-topping records, he became the leading figure of the newly popular sound of rock and roll. His energized interpretations of songs and sexually provocative performance style, combined with a singularly potent mix of influences across color lines during a transformative era in race relations, made him enormously popular—and controversial. ..”

    Russia and the American War for Independence
    by Norman Desmarais allthingsliberty.com
    “..George III refused Russia’s request for Minorca and the treaty was never ratified, so Russia never sent any troops to America. However, Catherine the Great proclaimed the League of Armed Neutrality on February 29, 1780. It was conceived by the Danes and subscribed to by Sweden and several other European nations to protect free trade between neutral countries and those at war. While it focused primarily on ships from the Netherlands, the league resisted all search efforts at sea. Russia even entered into a treaty to protect neutral shipping with Denmark and Sweden in wartime. England received the principles of the Treaty from her Russian ambassador on April 1, 1780 but would not recognize them as “rights” which would undermine her most effective military weapon, the blockade.”..

    “..Russia started trading with the colonies over a decade before the Revolution. Americans and Russians saw each other as excellent trade partners, having ample resources to offer each other. Despite Great Britain’s Navigation Acts, which restricted foreign trade directly with the colonies, Russian ships began delivering products like hemp, sail linen, and iron to American ports as early as 1763 and did not stop once the war began. Catherine II believed that an independent America would further Russian business interests, allowing America to trade with the Russian Empire without interference from Britain on the high seas. Continued trade with Russia during the war provided the colonies with a market for their goods as well as the funds and supplies they needed to survive…

    Without explicit mention of whether or not America would become autonomous, Panin secretly hoped that America would be given “complete liberty to decide its own fate.” While Catherine the Great’s peacemaking efforts ultimately fell through, they represented a worthy attempt to use diplomacy to shorten the war.”

    Tiberias

    Tiberias (Tveriah) – Israel – Chabad.org

    “..Tiberias sits off the pebbly beaches of the Kinneret Sea.

    Built along the shore of the Kinneret (Sea of Galilee), near seventeen natural hot springs, the northern Israeli city of Tiberias is known as the “City of Water.” It is considered one of the four “Holy Cities” in Israel.

    Some 2,000 years ago, Tiberias was the center of Jewish study and the last seat of the Sanhedrin (Supreme Court of Jewish law). After enduring constant wars throughout the Middle Ages, the city was revived by an influx of kabbalists in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. The city’s major attractions are the Kinneret, its natural hot springs and the graves of many historical luminaries…”

    Sea of Galilee in Israel

    The Sea of Galilee is also known in the Bible as the Sea of Gennesaret, Sea of Tiberias, and Sea of Kinnereth. The Sea of Galilee isn’t really a “sea” per se – it is actually a freshwater lake fed by nearby mountains and springs, which combine at the head of the Jordan River to the north. The Jordan River then passes through the lake, which is about 13 miles long and 8 miles wide. The Sea of Galilee is 686 feet below sea level, making it the lowest freshwater lake in the world.

    The landscape around the Sea of Galilee is unique. To the east and west, the ground rises steeply from the shore to fertile plateaus above. The black basalt boulders that cover the hillsides are typical of a landscape that was once volcanic. From the southern shore, you can see the twin peaks of Mount Canaan to the north, with the snow-covered Mount Hermon way beyond in the distance. From the west, you can see the small white houses of Ein Gev over on the eastern shore. Beyond Ein Gev rises a hill that was the site of the Hellenistic town, Hippos. From the east, you can see Magdala Bay on the northwestern shore, which lies just below biblical Tabgha and Capernaum.

    The land surrounding the Sea of Galilee today appears rather quiet and barren. However, history tells us that this wasn’t the case during the time of Jesus. This was a hub for agriculture and trade.
