Dr. Falwell Remembered

Dr. Falwell Remembered

Dr. Jerry Falwell was a great Christian leader and had a tremendous impact on my life. Both of my children attended Liberty University from 1993 – 2000, which is a Division I Christian University in Lynchburg, Virginia. When I heard Dr. Falwell speak at the parent orientation, I was impressed with his knowledge of a wide range of issues, including international politics.

Our daughter was accepted to many (6) state and private colleges and received a full scholarship to Montclair University in NJ. After visiting Liberty in the spring of her senior year with her girlfriend Takemma, they both decided to go to Liberty.

Liberty has a beautiful campus with the Blue Ridge Mountains as a backdrop. At the time there was a strict dress code where girls had to wear dresses or skirts to class and guys had to wear ties. This did not deter her interest in the school. During a freshman Speech Class she was invited to join the Debate Team.

Dr. Falwell had strong convictions and was a big supporter of debate and made many scholarships available to make Liberty one of the top debate teams in the country. Liberty has been ranked #1 in debate for many years, including two when Amy debated against the top colleges including George Washington, the Naval Academy, Wake Forest and many others. Thanks to Falwell and her hard work, she received a full scholarship her senior year!

Through this university many students have been equipped to be strong Christians in whatever field they are in. My daughter met her husband at Liberty. He now has a PhD in Philosophy and she has taught High School and College level English. Liberty now has a Law School and will be opening an Engineering School in the fall.

Our son also attended Liberty and got a Business degree and studied to be a Youth Pastor. Through Liberty he learned leadership skills by being a prayer leader and volunteering at the downtown soup kitchen. He also learned sign language. Both have lifelong friends that they met a Liberty.

Dr. Falwell brought in many top leaders in our country to speak to the students. Billy Graham’s grandson Will graduated with my daughter in 1997, and Dr. Graham spoke to the graduating class.

Dr. Falwell had a great sense of humor which my daughter recalls when she was out to dinner at one of the finest restaurants in Lynchburg for dinner on Valentine’s Day. Everyone was dressed very fancy. In walks Falwell with his wife and he is wearing a Halloween mask! Of course, he puts a smile on everyone’s face.

I will fondly remember Liberty University, Dr. Falwell and all that their wonderful professors and staff taught my children about life and serving others. Thank you Dr. Falwell. May you rest in peace.

For The Freshest Seafood Around Try the Lobster House

For The Freshest Seafood Around Try the Lobster House

 

If you want the freshest seafood, then go to the docks where the fishing boats come in. Where you ask? The Lobster House in Cape May is the best value around. Recently we had a party at the Lobster House and everyone raved over their meal.

 

We started with clams casino and fried mushrooms. Then a delicious salad was served with your choice of dressing. Some of the main courses were Crabmeat au Gratin (19.25) the Lobster House Special- scallops, shrimp and lobster tails over linguine with a garlic butter sauce (22 my choice!), Broiled Fisherman’s Wharf Platter- (left) a ½ lb lobster tail stuffed with crab, flounder, scallops, clams casino, and stuffed shrimp (24.95) and shrimp parmigiana (19.50). My parents always get the steamed lobsters 1 lb. (19.50) 2 lb. (28.) A great value! Lobster bib included.

 

For non-seafood folks there are many items including filet mignon, (23.95) and chicken parmigiana (17.25). All the meals come with a salad, choice of potato and vegetable.

 

The Lobster House also offers a great view, a take out seafood market and in the warmer months you can get a take-out platter and sit on their dock and watch boats go by. There is also a raw bar including u peel shrimp and steamed Maryland crabs and cocktails, beer and wine are served too.

 

Everyone is so glad the Lobster House is back after a fire closed their dining room for a while. If you have not been to the Lobster House, then go if you love casual dining and the best seafood around. In the warmer months you will find me sitting on their docks with a big smile on my face!

 

They don’t take reservations so get there early and you’ll get to watch the sunset and see fish being unloaded. They also offer a tour of the wharf in the summer through www.capemaymac.org

Spectacular Brunch Awaits You at Seaview Marriott

 

If you are looking for a great place to take Mom for Mother’s Day, why not treat her to the Sunday Brunch at the Seaview Marriott?

 

The Seaview Marriott in Galloway Township serves a delicious brunch on Sundays from 11 – 2 pm. On our recent visit we enjoyed Danish, pastry, fresh fruit, an omelet station, biscuits and cream dried beef, bacon, sausage, home fried potatoes, waffles, blintzes, assorted cheeses, bagels, coffee, orange juice and champagne.

 

The service staff was very friendly and we enjoyed listening to live piano music. After enjoying the breakfast items, we were ready for lunch which included a tossed salad, tomato & mozzarella salad, shrimp cocktail, King crab legs, seafood newburg, crab cakes, a carving station of fabulous prime rib and baked ham. There also was a sushi station, pasta, potato and tuna salad and pork tenderloin.

 

Fortunately, we all had room for dessert, which included cheese cake, cream puffs, napoleons, chocolate mousse cake, brownies, cannoli, apple pie, banana cake and a chocolate fountain with fruit. The meal was so filling we weren’t hungry for dinner that night! The beautiful dining room overlooks the putting green. Get your reservations in early for Mother’s Day.

 

The Seaview Marriott Resort used to be a private country club that is now open to the public. I have nice memories of attending my girlfriend’s 16th Birthday Party in 1971 for lunch and swimming in the pool. During the LPGA I got to meet Michelle Wie, Natalie Gulbis and it was exciting to watch Annika Sorenstam play golf. Now everyone can enjoy the ambiance of this stately old hotel.
