My World Issue II

To begin with - the MyWorld Team wants to thank two Team Members, that retire. Tom, who, inspired by Dot's idea created Skywatch and made it the success it is today and was on Board to create MyWorld is hanging up his blogging coat for good. We all will miss him! And Imac (Stewart) who also was on board with skywatch and helped to kickstart MyWorld has decided to take it slower. But he will still be particpating in the memes. Thank you, Tom and Stewart, for all your help and advice! Stay healthy and be good! :)

The 2nd issue of MyWorld is here!

The entire Team was surprised by the success the very first edition had - so thank you all for that!
Both MyWorld and Skywatch have re-worked the rules a little to ensure smooth sailing for all participants - so please read them, before using Mr. Linky.
And a quick reminder. Please enter your name
AND your state/Country in Mr. Linky. Don't forget to describe what we are seeing, when looking at your Post. No essay needed, but at least location and description. Thanks!

But now for the fun! Today's Intro comes from Fishing Guy!

A Short History Of Kent, Ohio

The Cuyahoga River was the dividing line between the settled and unsettled territories. The Americans and British were fighting after the Americans had declared their independence. In 1780 the famous Brady's Leap took place across the Cuyahoga River.

The Cuyahoga River cuts through Kent, Ohio,dividing the East and West sides of the town. John Haymaker built a grist mill at the river to process flour. A village was established in 1805 and called Franklin Mills. Marvin Kent brought the Atlantic and Great Western Railroad to be headquartered here in 1863. Franklin Mills was renamed Kent in 1864. This is the Cuyahoga River today after the dam was rework 2003.
This is the area that Captain Brady made his famous leap across the river in 1780 to escape the Wyandot Indians. The river was reworked for a Pennsylvania and Ohio Canal passage to the Erie Canal after the leap happened.

Thank you, for being part of the MyWorld Community!

Reader Wil said...

Well I hope you don't mind a cold walk in the polder of South Holland. The polder was rather deserted, but all the same I liked the walk myself.

Sara G said...

What fun this has been. I forgot to add my USA-Ohio to my name on Mr. Linky....do I need to resubmit adding it??

kjpweb said...

@ SaraG - I took care of it. But - if you would have checked the Mr. Linky Help - you could have fixed it, too!

Luiz Ramos said...

Beautiful your World. Thanks for share this report.

RuneE said...

First - I forgot the country again - but it is Norway (maybe one of the Mr. Linky wizards can do something?).And please excuse all the technical stuff I have put in. Otherwise - enjoy!

~TAMY 3 Sides of Crazy~ said...

I love rivers! There is something so peaceful about them - most of the time. LOL. If only they could talk, the history they;d tell us. I forgot to add the USA to my Mr linky too - I'll get better.

Hey, very good and interesting post about Kent, Ohio, and the Cuyahoga River!! My post is about a river, too. Thanks much!

kjpweb said...

@ MaryT
We do not remove Links, when you forget to enter the country.
We however delete, when there is no MyWorld post....

Linda said...

I think I may have to try Mr. Linky help, I forgot my country as well.

kbguy said...

Congrats to my World Team for the launch.
From kbguy, living in an isolated part of the world, but a very wonderful place to call his world. Check out his world call KELANTAN !
and ..."Selamat Datang"

Jack and Joann said...

I'm not doing a fun post about food this week. I'm doing a very sad post about housefires in my neighborhood last Wednesday. The good news is that all people and pets are doing fine and my community is rallying around the fire victims.

Fishing Guy, we could have used some of the water from the Cuyahoga River near Kent, Ohio to fight this intense blaze.

Carver said...

Beautiful shots and an interesting history lesson. I'm enjoying, That's My World so much already.

Linda said...

kbguy I nearly guessed where you are from from the word selamat as my daughter is learning Indonesian.

Judi~Gmj said...

off I love this post, so informative. You are a great poster.

Texas Travelers said...

Tom said...

Tom- Growing up just about a mile from the Cuyahoga and knowing how much it has changed for the better really makes me feel great. Taking out the dams has freed the river and like i've said before, I can know actually envision Captain Brady leaping across the gorge there in Kent.

Mojo said...

Gorgeous river scenes! Reminds me of the Linville River here in the Blue Ridge Mountains.

I'm a little late on the link up I guess, but hopefully it was worth the wait! Some of my neighbors have a... unique sense of humor.

Loving all the world shots! I feel so international toady! :o)

Larry D said...

What a great idea, thanks for hosting!

Indrani said...

Hi, Thanks for hosting this. I have participated once more. But I am not clear about one thing: I stay in Bangalore, India. So should my 'My World Posts' be about Bangalore only or can it be about any place that I visited in India?

Most of the posts I visited had entries about places where they actually live.

I will be glad if any of the hosts can clarify on this matter to me either as a mail or as a comment on my post.

Thanks once more

jean said...

Thanks for the suggestion (& compliment) on my blog. I have never looked at those setting before! You world is lookin good too.

David B Katague said...

Hello All. Just greet you all Happy Halloween! You are welcome to visit my world in tropical Philippines at your leisure! Again, Cheers!
