    The Classic Khmer Transportation Adventure-Cambodia's Bamboo Train

    in Travel

    I was staying in Battambang, Cambodia. While I was there I had to visit one of the area’s most famous attractions, the bamboo train. The bamboo train gets it’s name from the  bamboo deck or floorboard used that rests on top of the wheels that can transport anything from chickens and rice to people. In Khmer it’s called a Lorry and has been used since the Khmer Rouge shutdown of most regular train service in the country.  


    The Bamboo Train Station. Now where is the first class lounge? I could use a bloody mary about right now! Waiter?  Actually the place is quite charming and surprisingly not touristy feeling at all. At least not at the starting point in O Dambong, about 4 km from Battambang.


    The bamboo train solves the biggest problem of a single track train line. What do you do when two trains meet from opposite directions? In the case of the bamboo train? Simple-move one off the track. This experience alone makes this one of the world’s all time great train rides.


    A little heavy on the photo gear I know but I’m a one man show right now.


    Farewells from the departure crew and we’re off. 


    The bamboo train was not the first flatbed type service in Cambodia. During the civil war of the 80’s and 90’s flatbed trains were used as mine sweepers ahead of the rest of the train. Service was free, risky but popular. 


    And here we go about 3 minutes into the ride and our first stop. Wow, now that’s taking service station to the next level. The first lorries or bamboo trains were actually hand driven with a pole, kind of like an Italian gondola. Small motorcycle or tractor engines, like this one were added later. The wheels? They’re actually from abandoned tanks! Yes get your ass off the deck so I can do my job, thank you! Excerpts from "Great Train Rides Of The World-Cambodia's Bamboo Train".

    in Entertainment

    The King of DC Media, William Powell, welcomes Director\Writer Jason A. Ellis and the cast of his play "U-Street, the musical", which tackles homelessness.


    Bio for Director\Writer Jason A. Ellis:


    Jason A. Ellis – (Talent Agent) is excited to once again perform on stage for his many supporters and expresses his heartfelt gratitude for that continued support today. He has choreographed for and performed in several productions at his Alfred Street Baptist Church, as well as with theater companies in the DMV area in productions such as A Soldier’s Play, Seven Guitars, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, and Company. His ADHD won’t allow him to sit still, so his hand can be found in many aspects of this production, which has been the same for all of the other productions that he writes, directs, produces, etc. A son of Jamaica, he lives by the optimistic slogan for the country’s flag, “hardships there are, but the land is green and the sun shineth”.

    Announcing The Word Broadcast

    in Religion

    Announcing The Word broadcast is a the weekly bible study offered by Gene Tatum of Among Friends Cowboy Ministries, the evangelistic outreach in Eastern Texas near Nacogdoches.  Gene was a Rodeo Announcer for some 30 years in TX, LA, MS, AK and NC. He and his wife Pam often provided "Cowboy Church" in the Arena before or after the events they worked.  As an announcer they were also called on to MC other Equestrian Events, Dog Shows, Ranch Rodeos, Team Ropings, etc. He began pastoring by opening a small country church in Looneyville, TX on a bi-weekly basis in 2010. In August 2011 during a rodeo, Gene had a heat stroke at the microphone during the performance.  With the assistance of the paramedics (his wife being one of them) he finished the show.  He was taken to his motel room and there the Lord spoke to his heart that "he was done" as a rodeo announcer and that he was to go fulltime into the ministry. Announcing the Word Ministries then became "AMONG FRIENDS COWBOY MINISTRIES" and services were being held every Sunday each month. The ministry has seen a steady growth after only starting with 8 on that first Sunday in 2010.  The sanctuary has been remodeled with a new ceiling and new carpet.  The fellowship area was completely remodeled along with Sunday school rooms and the restroom facilities. A riding arena is under construction and will be ready in the spring to teach "Life's Lessons" by demonstrations on horseback and natural situations in the western way of life. AFCM is an active member of the International Cowboy Church Alliance Network (ICCAN).  Come ride the trail with us as we study God's Word in truth and Spirit.

But, what we never take into account is when "Forever" does not happen and we left being single parents then what's the next move? Well, according to statitics about 75% of people remarry or get into other relationships, which means that kids from past relationships get brought into new relationships. Then what? 


    Confusion happens! However, the kids often times get past the confusion once the stability of that new relationship reveals itself, which leaves only one issue on the table. How does the parents of the child interact with the new parent figure in the home? Here enters Grown Folks Talk With Shaun D.
