Nanaimo (na 'nai mo),more...
is the second largest city on Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada. It has been dubbed the "Bathtub Racing Capital of the World" and "Harbour City". Nanaimo is also sometimes referred to as the "Hub City" because of its central location on Vancouver Island, and being the main ferry connector between Vancouver and Vancouver Island.
Nanaimo is about 55 km west of Vancouver, separated by the Strait of Georgia, but directly linked to Vancouver via BC Ferries. By virtue of its proximity to Vancouver, Nanaimo is the gateway to many other destinations both on the island — Tofino, Campbell River, Comox Valley, Port Alberni, Rathtrevor Provincial Park — and off its coast — Newcastle Island, Gabriola Island, Valdes Island, and many other of the Gulf Islands.
Nanaimo began as a trading post in the early 1800s; in 1849 the Snuneymuxw chief Ki-et-sa-kun (...
The suggested replacement word for the verb "to be," coined by Vietnamese Buddhist Monk and scholar Thich Nhat Hanh. It means to inter-dependently co-exist. The meaning of interbeing recognizes the dependence of any one person or thing as to all other people and objects.
Not only is no man an island, but rather his interbeing is shared with the plants and animals he eats, the people who make his clothes and food, the people who populate his home, country and the very world he percieves, the insects that pollinate the trees that yeild his fruit, shade him from the sun, and provide lumber for his house.
A small hamlet in the Town of Huntington on the North Shore of Long Island. The area now known as East Northport was originally known as Larkfield. When the Long Island Railroad decided to expand it's branch to Port Jefferson, they relocated the Northport train station to it's current location on Larkfield road. They chose to keep the name as Northport, and rename the original station Old Northport. Conductors would refer to the new station as "East Northport" because the station was east of the original Northport. Eventually the Old Northport station was closed, and the spur removed (you can still follow it, along BOCES, through the woods, and the station was where the lumber yard is just past 25a). The name "East Northport" stuck and replaced Larkfield.more...

An amazing town in the NY suburbs in Northern New Jersey, Bergen County. Everyone has an amazing house except for the people "across the tracks" who live in dumps. All of us go to camp in the summer upstate and have bitchy but hot friends that live in westchester or long island. Most of us are named Jordan, Brad, Leah, and Tori. We all have BMWs by the time we're 16 and love going to bar mitzvahs on weekends. We all sport our sweatshirts from the latest bar mitzvahs. Bloomingdales and Nordstrom are the ONLY damn places the girls shop. Guys dont give a crap what they look like as like as they get completely wasted at the next upcoming party. Woodcliff Lake is 90% Jewish, 7% Chrisitian and like 3% Asian. We go to Pascack Hills with "Montvalers" who think threyre hot shit because they all live in 2 room shacks next to lumber yards and Dunkin Donuts. Also close to Hillsdale, which is a redneck infested hellhole and River Vale, a semi crappy town home to baseball playing uber guidos where every house looks the same. Many of us live in huge houses on Blueberry Hill near the temple and love to brag about it to camp friends and newbies at school.
Jared: Oh hey Rachel who's this?
Rachel: This is Rusty, he's from Montvale.
Jared: Oh, you must live in that one room apartment above the pizza shop right?
Rusty: Naw, i actually live in a trailer behind the landfill.
Rachel: Yeah, it's not easy to compete with living in 6 bedroom mansion on the Hill with a Jacuzzi on the roof in Woodcliff Lake.
Jared: Hey you guys let's go in my new BMW 3 series to the booze party next to my house on Blueberry.
