My World #4

This is the third posting for the My World meme . It is hosted by Klaus, Ivar,Sandy, Wren, Louise and myself. Last week there were 125 people showing their worlds to us. Won't you join, I want to see where you live. Come and see My World.


In this post I'm going to show you a major part of Kent, Ohio. This is Kent State University. It is run by the State of Ohio and it was established as a college in 1910.
The sports teams are known as the Golden Flashes and they have a Golden Eagle as a mascot. If you click on the water tower you can see a Golden Eagle with a lightning bolt coming out of its wing. Also check out the weather station on top of the tower. The tower is on one of the highest points in the area.

This is the science building where they can put on a sky show on the ceiling. I have taken the grand kids to see the show a few times.

Just one block past the end of the university property on Main Street is a restaurant called Rockne's. My Grandson Golf Boy used to like to go there and would say "Can we go to Rock and Roll for dinner". We knew exactly what he meant. They were playing old Rock and Rolls songs on their radio last night. It is a good place to get a meal and the helpings are large. this is Misty's favorite so I hope it makes her hungry.

My wife got a Buffalo Chicken Salad. The bowl is as big as it looks and that is a sliced chicken breast on top. It comes with several wedges of pita bread.

I got a Cheddar Cheese Burger with Fries. The fries are fresh cut and I always take half the fries home for lunch the next day.

This is part of My World that I'm showing you today.

Your EG Tour Guide said...

It DOES look like a big bowl of salad, that's for sure. You're making me feel hungry, FG. ;-)

Sylvia K said...

A great look at Kent and FOOD! I did the same thing today! We'll have everyone hungry early! Love your photos and thanks for sharing a part 0f your world!

Louise said...

The university is very nice, but I think I want some of that salad!

ewok1993 said...

I'm so glad we also get to see your world's good eats. Now I am hungry as I am posting this at 12:20 pm here.

Carver said...

Great shots of the university and you are making me hungry. I love the details in this post about your world.

kjpweb said...

Look what you did! Now I'm hungry again! ;)
Great Post!
Cheers, Klaus

Arija said...

Great post! I'll have that chicken salad any day.

Sorry I didn't notice there was no Australia after my name when I logged in. I was so intent on joining, I didn't check.

Wren said...

In my mind's eye, I always associate the iconic picture of the protester killed on campus during the Vietnam War days with Kent State. Of course, time moves on and Vietnam is now ancient history. I find it reassuring that life, cities, and campus heal, and move on.

babooshka said...

Those chips as we say it the UK look great.

auringonkukka =) said...

beautiful pictures and place! I also tell you something more page now my country!

Dina said...

imac said...

Carletta said...

You know I can't think or hear of Kent State without thinking of the tragedy there in the seventies. Nice to see some pretty images!
The food - it's almost dinner time and the tomato soup I was thinking of just won't do now!! :)

I don't know who fixed my link. I know I forgot to add the country I was in such a hurry to start visting - so thanks!

A nice visit to Kent State. Now I need to eat!

said...

I don't think we have Rockne's here...but we have Fuddruckers or something like that. I was horrified the first time I saw that place...then I read it again.

Now I'm hungry.

tipper said...

Kent looks like a nice place to go to college. The food look delicious-you've made me hungry!

Mojo said...

I have a special connection to Kent State even though I've never been there. The shootings there in 1970 took place on my 10th birthday. I never forget the date, that's for sure.

Rockne's reminds me of a place called "Beans" that used to be on 6th Street in Austin, TX. The food was unbelievable, and if you left there hungry it was your own fault! Best of all, four of us went there for dinner, drinks and dessert and got out for just over $40 (this was 1985-'86 dollars, but still...)

Thanks for the tour!

ChrissyM said...

You've made me hungry ;-) Small town diners sure beat the big fast food chains in just about every category.

Excellent post! And the food looks tasty!

Shellmo said...

I love seeing other peoples favorite food haunts! That salad and burger made me hungry!!

2sweetnsaxy said...

Thanks for sharing a piece of your world. I haven't had breakfast and that hamburger and fries looks really good right now. :-)

To answer your question on my post, our water levels are dependent upon how much rain we get. We got a lot of rain last year and there was water and streams everywhere and the mountains more full of snow than I'd seen in a while.

RazorFamilyFarms.com said...

Okay, I confess that I came back to drool over the burger. Oh yum!

Blessings!
Lacy

marina said...

May I have that salad please?!!!

Misty Dawn said...

You think Rockne's will ship their meals? bwahahahahaha

Hubs LOVES the Buffalo Chicken Salad - in fact, on our anniversary, I would order it for take out and bring it home for him. He also loves their quesedilas (however the heck you spell it). My favorites are the gyro and their chicken sandwich with the special sauce (I think it's the Max sauce). Yummmmmmmm

Ah my friend, if you talked to my husband or my step-kids, they would say that you forgot the BEST part of Rockne's... The Bacon Cheddar Fries! Those are a favorite in my family!

Gee thanks - now you've got me drooling all over my keyboard - and I've got to go 750 miles to satisfy this craving!!! ;-)

Goooooooo Flashes!!!

Deslilas said...
