Op-Ed Contributor - The One-State Solution - NYTimes.com: "If the present interdependence and the historical fact of Jewish-Palestinian coexistence guide their leaders, and if they can see beyond the horizon of the recent violence and thirst for revenge toward a long-term solution, then these two peoples will come to realize, I hope sooner rather than later, that living under one roof is the only option for a lasting peace.

Muammar Qaddafi is the leader of Libya."

Thriving in the Age of Collapse

Thriving in the Age of Collapse: "If you have or foresee significant ongoing medical needs, staying in the United States will pose a unique set of problems; you might even consider seeking refuge in one of the many countries that provide free basic and emergency medical care to their entire population. The United States is a very special case in having made basic medicine into a profit-making industry rather than a social service. The medical system here has become a parasite, bloated and ineffectual. The doctors are saddled with unreasonable regulations and financial liabilities."

public house history

London, Essex, Kent, Hertfordshire, Suffolk & Sussex Pubs, Inns, Taverns & Beer Houses History & Trade Directory.:

"These are the entry pages to the history of London, Essex, Kent, Hertfordshire & Cambridgeshire, Suffolk, Sussex & Dorset Historical Public Houses site, which complement many other excellent FREE genealogy sites.. (or use the navigation bars and the excellent search engines).

London Public Houses information starts with the 1881 census,
Trade Directory entries from the Post Office , Kelly and Pigots Directories, Petty Session Victuallers records etc.

The information is mostly historical, being up to two hundred years previous. But, you will also find many modern and classical images of these public houses & Beer Houses; and the occasional Telephone number, or postal code.

There are now over 14,000 London, Essex, Suffolk, Sussex, Hertfordshire & Kent Pubs - i.e. public houses, taverns, Pubs in London and many beer houses & retailers (the early off licences).
These are listed by church parish as they would have existed before 1900, and many of these are no longer in existence due to road improvement schemes and the policy to build on 'brown fill' sites, often including old pubs and garages, which are being annihilated in vast quantities, to improve housing opportunuties."
