Dihua Street or Grocery Street is where many residents of Taipei, Taiwan head to for stocking up on food, snacks and treats for the Lunar New Year, or Chinese New Year. I recently visited the famous shopping market just two days before New Year’s Eve. I was there to shop, sample food, indeed why many people pay a visit and talk to some Taiwanese about why they enjoy Lunar New Year.
Dihua market, for most of the year is Dihua Street-a center in Taipei for traditional Chinese medicinal herbs, fabrics, incense, and Taiwanese tea processing. First constructed in 1850, it’s original name was Center Street.
This is the busiest time of year for Dihua street, with extra food stalls and vendors using all kinds of tactics to get your attention. Most of which are pretty friendly.
Sampling is big here and many people come just to load up on the freebies. If you’re new to the food of Taiwan it’s a great place to learn about some of the traditional snacks and newer items with ingredients that can range from peanuts to dried fish.
It’s Taiwan, so of course there’s always someone cooking food around the corner.
The southern portion of Dihua is the oldest street in Taipei, dating back to Dutch rule from 1624-1661.
In Taiwan many markets were built around temples and Dihua is no exception with worshippers getting in their last wishes for the year, or perhaps a good start to the new year.

In February Americans have more to celebrate than Valentine's Day. Indeed, what better time to honor our first Commander-in-Chief than Presidents’ Day--this, by commemorating George Washington’s birthday? And what better place than his namesake Inn, one of Washington State’s finest bed and breakfasts nestled along the Strait of Juan de Fuca between Sequim and Port Angeles? Join the Inn’s owners, Dan & Janet Abbott, & Washington historian Vern Frykholm as together we relive colonial history & explore forgotten facts about the father of our country & the gracious estate he called home.
This message goes strait to the core of answering "What is going on in the church today?" Sin without shame, rampant ungodliness and total disregard for God; not something new but certainly getting worse by the day. Has God sent strong delusion as a result of blatant disobedience? Listen to this message brought by Prophet Mary Washington and hear what the bible says about it.

Abortion is now mandatory in America; Baby steps to national notoriety; Blizzards and locusts, oh my!; Is Zika a brand of Mexican beer or the next global pandemic?; Competence and common sense are the first casualties of corruption and tyranny; The absence of legal guns means an avalanche of gun violence; Demotion of disgraced VA executives reversed; Where did anybody ever get the noodleheaded idea that Michael Bloomberg is a "centrist," or presidential timbre?; ABC to carry out some long-overdue GOP "mercy killings"; Taiwan flexes military muscle right in Red China's face; and the day-to-day experience of being at the level of the rest of the world.
Then, in the third hour of the Saturday Afternoon Radio Extravaganza on Constitution Radio on KMET 1490-AM, 4PM Eastern/1PM Pacific:

Do you want Donald Trump to be a politically correct liberal? Just elect him; Pope Francis asks Iran to work for Mideast peace, stop the spread of terrorism, reverse time, make water run uphill, walk on water, part the Red Sea, and, oh, wait, never mind, Rouhani has already beheaded Francis; Giant Trump poster becomes pilgrimage site; Obama illegally decrees Cuban embargo easings while Cuban illegal aliens pour into U.S.; Hillary Clinton: my first SCOTUS appointment will be....Barack Hussein Obama; The Bundy Gang loses the second Battle of Bundy Hill; Trump runs away from Megyn Kelly....again; and Taiwan flexes military muscle right in Red China's face.
