If only...

I absolutely adore places like this. Old abandoned asylums, hospitals, homes and also my favorite...cemeteries. I'm not sure if it's just the sheer beauty of the layout or the history behind it all, but it fascinates me to the point of obsession. It's a shame that some people feel the need to vandalize such places. Hopefully one day I can travel to these destinations and truly take in the scenery for myself.

je suis passé le 16 juin très probablement à deux pas de ce malheureux château dont je n'ai pu apercevoir entre les arbres
que le sommet de deux tourelles . Une personne habitant près de là m'a indiqué qu'il était désormais impossible d'accéder
et de voir ce château car une double clôture avait été installée par le propriétaire des lieux l'année dernière par sécurité.
Je n'ai repéré aucun chemin d'accès.

specific tunnel system

Has anyone found any part of a tunnel system from parliament House to treasury place & or the Windsor in Melbourne?
I've recently moved down from Queensland & am looking for this & more.
I'm also figuring out why the royal Melbourne children's hospital is shaped in the symbol of the freemasons symbol! Google earth it & check it out.
Email to join the hunt.

Blacks need to take over Gary Bussiness's

When oh when will there be an concerted effort on the part of Gary Blacks to take the small businesses out of the hands of Asians and men and women from the Middle East. I get godamn tired of putting my money into the hands of whites everytime I go grocery shopping out in Merrillville Ind. I travel there because the small super markets inside of urban Gary are ran from people from the Mid-East ! They don't give a damn about black people and it shows in the general conditions of the food stores! I saw one back in the late 90's and early 2000's that was like a pile of junk there was no damn refrigeration and or sprinkler's were the few rotten pieces of vegetables were kept there was a pile of cabbage inside a card board box and box sat on top a artifical grass. The prices are too high and the Persian gulfers never do anything to upgrade the store's exterior to make the enviorment a pleasant shopping experience. Often you walk in THEIR STORES and the strong smell of chorline assails your nose.The was one of THEIR stores on Broadway that was raided by the health department and shut down a few years ago. That was a bright spot it needed to be shut down . I wasn't born here and I don't understand why blacks remain silent about how foriegners come in and take over business's they should be in charge of and that includes gas stations also. IF blacks owned gas stations between the hours of 2:00 and 4:00 pm we could get our gasoline without being put offf because the clerk is back praying to the "higher powers" and refuse to come out and answer the doors. And another thing someone told me once a friend of theirs was in a service station and the clerk was speaking Arabic on his phone and didn't know this black person knew a little Arabic himself and one of the words he heard was their version of the word nigger. Do you people really think these folks are in love with blacks they travelled overseas and settled in our black areas because they know we are easy prey. Someone will defend them so really all I typed was in vain but at least I tried!!!!!!!!!
