Adventures in Hiking

    Over this past weekend Kevin and I had the opportunity to visit my Mom and Dad in Western Maryland.  I had an absolutely terrific time and was so, so very happy to get to see them since I hadn't been able to see them since Fall of 2010.  One of our long time family friends was visiting also so that was great to see her too.  Both days Kevin and I went hiking with her.  It was both fun and exhilarating.  Needless to say neither Kevin or I had hiked that far in some time.  Here are some pictures from our hike at New Germany State Park in MD.  The first day we ended up walking around 3 miles.  Boy were we hot and a wee bit tired by the end.

    The second day we hiked to Cascade Falls with my Dad, our friend, and her kiddos. This was a little bit of an adventure since the hiking trail wasn't marked as clearly as it could have been due to the winter weather wear and tear on the signage.  We followed a trail or what we thought was a trail. Then we ended up back on the road. After following the road for a little bit we then found a sign that said Cascade Falls this way, this led us to yet another trail but since the trail wasn't marked very well we ended up running into some rather large size rocks so I began thinking to myself this cannot possibly be the correct way.  Needless to say we had walked a little bit too far and missed the turnoff.  Thankfully we weren't that far off the beaten path.  Here are some pictures from our second hike to Cascade Falls in MD.

    The stairs were blocked off for safety concerns but since we were determined to take advantage of the waterfall all of us were very careful in our descent to the bottom.  

    We had a great time!! I look forward to hiking again soon.

Egyptian military performs 'virginity tests'

    Egyptian military performs 'virginity tests'
    Egyptian military performs 'virginity tests'. Egypt women protesters forced to take 'virginity tests'. A leading rights group says the Egyptian army arrested, tortured and forced women to take "virginity tests" during protests earlier this month.

    Amnesty International is calling on the authorities in Cairo to investigate.

    It says at least 18 female protesters were arrested after army officers cleared Tahrir Square on 9 March.

    It says they were then beaten, given electric shocks and strip searched.
    The army denies the allegations.
    'Utterly unacceptable'

    A 20-year-old woman, Salwa Hosseini, told Amnesty she was forced to take off all her clothes by a female prison guard in a room with open doors and a window.
    She said that male soldiers looked in and took photographs of her while she was naked.

    The demonstrator said a man in a white coat later carried out a 'virginity check' on her and she was threatened with prostitution charges.

    "Forcing women to have 'virginity tests' is utterly unacceptable. Its purpose is to degrade women because they are women," a spokesperson for Amnesty International said in a statement.

    "Women and girls must be able to express their views on the future of Egypt without being detained, tortured, or subjected to profoundly degrading and discriminatory treatment."

    Egypt's military has been criticised by activists for detaining people involved in the mass protests and abusing them.

    The military denies using torture against civilians.

    Last week, the head of the military police told an Egyptian newspaper that video footage had been fabricated by individuals wanting to create divisions between the people and the armed forces.

    Human rights groups have also criticised Egypt's new rulers for continuing to put civilians on trial before military courts. They say these have a track record of unfair trials and severely restrict the right to appeal.

    Reporting on the military in Egypt is difficult. A law passed in 1956 prevents writing about the army.

    Moby Has Crush on Britney Spears

    Moby has developed an unlikely crush on Britney Spears, the Sun reports.

    The hip electronica artist said he'd marry the former megastar and tabloid target "in a heartbeat."

    "She's like this Tennessee Williams tragic figure," he said, according to the Sun. "The fatter she gets, the weirder she gets, the more I love her. I found her moderately appealing in the late '90s, but now I would marry her in a heartbeat."

    James Spears was named co-conservator of his daughter's estate Feb. 1 after she was twice hospitalized in a psychiatric facility. Conservatorships are granted for people deemed unable to take care of themselves or their affairs.

    She has since shown signs of improvement, appearing successfully on the CBS sitcom "How I Met Your Mother." Her ex-husband, Kevin Federline, has custody of their two young sons.
