Sherranda is a derivative name for the fallen chief Sherando (Sherando Lake) coming from the Virginia area (Shenandoah area - "Daughter of the Stars").
1) It's from Indian etymology as (Schin-han-dowi) Schinhandowi, meaning "River through the Spruces".
2) It's from (On-an-da-goa) Onandagoa, meaning "River-of-High Mountains" or as "Silver-Water".
3) It's from the Iroquois Skahentowane, meaning "Great Meadow" or "Valley".
Sherranda, the "Daughter of the Stars" for the river has its sources in high mountains, and on a clear night in those high mountains the stars seem very close indeed.
A little village at the foot of the mountains and on the banks of the Hudson River. Residents that lived there before the paper mill was levelled are called River Rats or Piermonsters. Residents that bought the condos where the paper mill once stood are called Yuppies or Piermonters. Residents that live in Lawrence Park don't count as real residents unless there is a fire call to repond to. True River Rats are all related somewhere in their DNA but usually a flow chart is needed. Most River Rats are known by a nickname which is ever-evolving and changing. True River Rats know what the following are: the pier, ClevePak, donkey baseball, high tracks, parking lot (upper & lower), cowboy fields, platforms, ice hopping, crabbing/fishing (catfish, perch & eels especially), teen center, mine hole, sand pile, silk mill, Empire Hose, Mom's, Renee's, Davie's and the Kracker Box.
"I'm from Piermont.
So is my family.
Oh yeah, who's your dad?
One Eyed Willy.
No shit! He's my dad too!"
to me beauty of nature shouldnt be defined as sun all the time or what beauty in a polaroid picture would look like, and oregon isnt. yes it happens to rain a lot in Oregon, which causes mud. but its the rain, the mud, the trees, the grass, the animals, etc. that make Oregon full of nature.more...
which is true beauty. Some people on here said oregon only has two places you can visit and then whoo hoo your done, UMM FALSE only a not true oregonian could say that. Oregon has so many cool places to go to that arent always listed on maps or computers, but thats what the cool thing is, take one day to just go around and expore oregon and you'll be interested. Theres more places than moultnomah falls and the columbia river gourge. While many states have their skyscrapers and city lights, Oregon has its mountains and trees and can actually see stars at nighttime because theres no bad polution. You'll also find a wide variety of people in oregon, and you'll meet some of the most awesomest too. You cant judge oregon and say that its ugly and that it has no things to see when you you mayb eglanced out the window and saw trees or the columbia river, tke the time to exlpore before you judge. its one thing to look at a hill covered in trees than to actually climb the hill. And what i mean is in oregon you'll see the columbia gourge maybe but once you go on the hikes there and see all the animals and the beauty of the place you'll get a whole new perspective. Trust me.
The Cockbump was originated back many moons ago, when slapping hands just didn’t cut the mustard and the obvious fist bump went out with Hammer pants. It was construed during one of the most epic games of Flip Cup in the history of the world. Imagine, in the back woods of northern Michigan with the Rifle river flowing to your back, an army of drunken friends, beer as cold as those big mountains and a game so close that not even those cell phone pictures of Brett Favre could measure a winner. There it was, 2 competitors left standing with the cups empty and flying in the air. They finally land, declaring our team the winner and the crowd erupts louder then when Kelly Clarkson won American Idol! Thinking to ourselves, its time to celebrate! But how?? Cup in one hand, beer in the other, our faces too beautiful to head butt, we had enough alcohol in us to make Charlie Sheen blush, so we came up with the next best thing: The Cockbump.
Cockbump: A simple effect way to say hello!

The Islamic republic of Pakistan emerged on the map of the world as an independent sovereign state on 14th August 1947, as a result of the division of the former British India. It lies between 23-35 to 37- 05 north latitude and 60-50 to 77- 50 east longitude. It touches the Hindukush mountains in the north and extends from the Pamirs to the Arabian Sea. It is bounded by Iran in the west, Afghanistan in the north-west, India in the east and south east and Arabian Sea in the south. There is a common border with China alongside Gilgit and Baltistan in the north.more...
The total area of the country is 796,095 sq.km with a population of 130.6 million according to population census 1988. It is divided into four provinces viz. Sindh, Punjab, North West Frontier Province and Balochistan. It consists of such physical regions as a) the western offshoots of Himalayas which cover its northern and north western parts of which the highest peak K-2 rises to 8611 meters above sea level; b) the Balochistan plateau c) The Potohar Plateau and salt range and d) The Indus plain, the most fertile and densely populated area of the country. It gets its sustenance from the Indus river and its tributaries.
Climatically, Pakistan enjoys a considerable measure of variety. North and north western high mountainous ranges are extremely cold in winter while the summer months of April to September are very pleasant. The plains of the Indus valley are extremely hot in summer with a cold and dry weather i...
The state capital of Indiana and 2nd largest state capital by population. The largest city in Indiana and 12th largest in the U.S. (790,000 and another million in the suburbs). The 3rd largest Midwest city by population (after Chicago and Detroit) and largest by land area. It is not exactly a city for urban enthuseists. It is very dull and lackluster by most standards when comparing it to either coast. It will never be able to compete with nor have a profile like San Fran, New York, Washington DC, Phily, Chicago, Atlanta, San Diego, Seattle or Boston. Instead, it ranks along the same tier of cities like Louisville, Columbus, Cincinnati, or St. Louis. It’s not really a city at all, but more like a large town. Boring and very unhurried are accurate in describing this small town. It was, for many years, considered a Rust Belt city and “Naptown” until recently. It faced the challenges of a declining population to the townships and suburbs, the erosion of jobs and lack of an identity. But some of that has change for the better.more...
OK, here’s the good: An affordable cost of living (perhaps due to the overall lack of high-paying jobs in the area) and the most affordable of any “large” metro area. Its low cost of doing business is enabling companies to expand in Central Indiana and create more high-paying jobs—slowly but surely. It is a nice place to live if you have family or want to raise children. Indy is hosting more and more events all ...
