As I typed the word ' Downtown', Petula's voice sang these words in my head... "Downtown" composed by Tony Hatch When you're alone and life is making you lonely You can always go downtown When you've got worries, all the noise and the hurry Seems to help, I know, downtown
Just listen to the music of the traffic in the city Linger on the sidewalk where the neon signs are pretty How can you lose? The lights are much brighter there You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares
So go downtown Things will be great when you're downtown No finer place for sure, downtown Everything's waiting for you
Don't hang around and let your problems surround you There are movie shows downtown Maybe you know some little places to go to Where they never close downtown
Just listen to the rhythm of a gentle bossa nova You'll be dancing with 'em too before the night is over Happy again The lights are much brighter there You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares
Xenodochium, sited on Ellis Island where the Rudes entered. My pa's ancestors from Stratford-upon-Avon emigrated here. defintion ofxenodochium: a building for reception of strangers I think that the building on Ellis Island certainly qualifies as axenodochium since it received innumerable strangers faring their way into our country. Eternal thanks to my brother's widow who began the search for both of our parents' ancestors many, many years ago. Additionally, it was through her efforts that our family's name is posted on a wall at Ellis Island.

Tantum ergo SacramentumVeneremur cernui:Et antiquum documentumNovo cedat ritui:Praestet fides supplementumSensuum defectui. Come adore this wondrous presence, Bow to Christ the source of grace. Here is kept the ancient promise Of god's earthly dwelling place. Sight is blind before God's glory, Faith alone may see His face. Genitori GenitoqueLaus et jubilatio,Salus, honor, virtus quoqueSit et benedictio:Procedenti ab utroqueCompar sit laudatio. Glory be to God the Father, Praise to His coequal Son, Adoration to the Spirit, Bond of love, in Godhead one. Blest be God by all creation Joyously while ages run. our pastor, Father Dudzinski
