The Mayans and their descendants made a recent film to explain the truth and eliminate all the Doomsday talk.
The world will not or did not end on December 21, 2012, because that month and year mark the very center point of a 40-year Mayan Cycle. We have art least another 20 years to go. Probably more.
Logically, if the world were going to end or be conquered or carried away by aliens, then either event would not occur until circa 2032, about the time we establish a Mars Colony. The 40-year cycle mentioned is one of turmoil, chaos and bad events, but many four-decade periods of history have been just so.

We often wonder how migration of human groups could occur across the world and across North America. Then we find some of the same traditions both in the Pacific Northwest and in the Northeastern United States. While the Iroquois of the United States and Canada have shared large portions of their culture and histories with us, those of the Pacific Northwest are still rather mysterious and very interesting.
Just after World War II, an artist traveled through the Pacific Northwest and Southern Alaska, painting pictures of villagers and village life among the Indigenous Peoples. During the turbulent 1960s, a team returned to these sites for a camera tour. Both journeys are fortunately maintained as among the fine arts in Canadian museums, waiting for visitors.

This is by far a tastier dish than the canned-soup-bean-canned-fried-onion bowl that some have seen overcooked for many years. Using real mushrooms, fresh green beans, and lite sour cream or Greek yogurt, this is a casserole that takes just a little while longer to prepare than the usual fare. In fact, the longest step in the recipe is cooking for 10 minutes inside the oven.

FRANKENMUTH, MICHIGAN – LITTLE BAVARIA
Some call it an Amusement Park now, but it’s quite a testimony to faith and good business principles. Wally Bronner began it as a sideline in a corner in 1945 and it grew in a deluge so big that no one could control it. It overflowed two buildings and now forms the Gateway at the south entrance to Frankenmuth.
I respect this family owned and operated company highly, because Mr. Bronner dedicated his sideline business to Christ with a brave conviction that did/does not browbeat anyone, among a huge competition of religions and sects in the world without denigrating any of them.
Wally respected them all, but stood by his own. The organization has always treated staff and customers well; and the store has always given back to the community and various charitable organizations.A large portrait of the extended family before Wally’s death hangs int he South entrance today as a testimony to working together, honoring one another as family members, and honoring customers that bring financial support. Have a look at their site above, at the link.
