Glad to see that so many people still feel as our founding fathers did.  This country was built by faith.  Separation of church and state only means that our government can not tell you what church to attend.  Not that God does not exist.  Our fore fathers came to the US to get away from the Church of England.  No where in the pledge does it force me to believe in any particular faith.  Without God in our country we will be in trouble that is unmeasurable.
God helped found our country, lets keep him in it.

I agree whole heartedly.  Separation of church and state simply means that we are free to choose which church to support.  We can support our church to the extent we wish to and are able - we are not taxed to support a church.  It should not be interpreted to mean we can not declare our faith publicly.

In Response to Re: The Pledge Of Allegiance : H.M. I am intrigued..where are you from?  If you would like to share... I am always interested in "ethnic" recipes and would love to hear about "new" and "different" foods.  Care to share any that may be dear to your heart.

To answer your question Nikki, I was born in Austria but both of my parents are of German descent from Yugoslavia.  I used to cook all the things that my Mom and Grandma taught me but over the years I've had to change a lot of things.  My husband unfortunately doesn't like a lot of german food.  But when he's out of town I make sauerkraut with porcupine meat balls and share with my kids lol.  Since I don't have a written recipe, I will have to write it down the next time I make it so it can be posted. 

I also have a recipe for rum balls(in german) which I will translate and post soon.

Thanks, my fathers background was German although he was adopted by his stepfather when he was 2 or 3 years old. My husbands father came from Germany and his mom was from Czechoslovakia.  I happen to love German food and would love some recipes. The recipe for Rum balls would be greatly welcomed.
You must write down the family recipes so that they can be passed down.  It may not seem important now but as time goes by that will change.  I would so love the recipes my Mom, Grandma and Dad made. But it is to late.
