  SCENES FROM A WEDDING

PHOTOS: A Look At History In The Making As Gay New Yorkers Legally Wed for the First Time

Gay Weddings 15 by Jeffrey James Keyes

Queerty/GayCities photoblogger Jeffrey James Keyes showed up at the Manhattan City Clerk’s office at 141 Worth Street Sunday morning to take pictures of the first few same-sex couples to get married in New York City.  Christine Quinn introduced five of the first couples to a loving crowd that cheered as each couple waved their certificate of marriage.

Mayor Bloomberg and the New York Police Department were good enough to keep the protesters away from the celebratory crowd but we caught three men who voiced their disapproval.  These individuals were quickly escorted away from the scene and the morning continued peacefully.  Nearby, in Thomas Paine Park, puppets Rod and Ricky from the the hit musical Avenue Q tied the knot in front of a crowd of supporters.

Congratulations, New York!

      There are still no joint tax returns allowed. Remember when biracial marriages were different from “traditional” marriages whatever the haters mean by manipulating people using the term traditional marriages.

      Beautiful moment – though I have to say I dont understand the couples that dressed like they were going to a costume party. Are you getting married on your way back from the club?

      That plant is actually a weed.
      This will sound want two minutes with Andy Rooney but I just now don’t go along with this duration.If the plant feels pretty there are some quality making it useful, then how come is it some sort of weed.

      Exactly what is a weed?

      The chicory plant contains a pretty little flower and certain people make use of it to come up with tea.Isn’t this bright white flower of your dandelion like a marigold or possibly some modest yellow daisy? You could make wine out of dandelions.That is definitely good seriously isn’t it.what the heck is grass.It simply just lays in many different places and looks frequent green.Maybe cows may well eat the item.I do not think it’s an important weed but There’s no doubt that it acts such as a weed.Grass aims to overpower any devices.If Sneaking Charlie tries for doing that, we speak to him some sort of weed.

      Do weeds involve some exclusive property that we all can use to explain them with other factories? Are many other facilities just “plants” or possibly should we call these folks “non weeds”?

      When my significant other “weeds” a flower backyard, she is going to constantly request “is this approach a weed? ” Would it really make any difference? My response is often the equal.”If you wish it — leave this there.If you can not like the item, pull the software out.”

      Milkweed — wow, poor plant first got it right on the name.This plant along with the fun smaller seedpod hosts the much admired Monarch Butterfly.A monarch really needs this vegetable to live through.Children desire to open all the mature seed pod and additionally blow the limited parachutes in many different places.We usually are intent relating to eradicating it because this is the “weed”.I are not familiar with what should make it a dope.

      Usually there are some plants which guess we might all will be able to safely come to be called an important weed.Poison Ivy reaches mind primary.I are not able to see just about anything good regarding it plant.This someone can go away forever as long as I i am concerned.A handful of god doses from this plant get it on “My weed list”.

      Usually there are some very helpful names with regard to weeds.A mouse eared chickweed.Does this approach really appear to be a weed” It may appear to be something provide see within the farm.A further similar term is “lamb’s quarters”.It is one of the “goosefoot family” The software just doesn’t necessarily sound such as a weed.Extra farm style plants – try “field horsetail” and even “wild oats”.May sound like they ought to do well at the same time.

      Bear in mind the “european frogbit” Now that you must wonder that name.

      I including the masses in purple loosestrife DOCUMENT see thriving in forget banks but Perhaps this is the monster throughout disguise.It gets uncontrolled and chokes away everything.Maybe which make it a pot.

      Maybe St John’s Wort in addition to Cypress Spurge do not sound which will good opinion.Maybe I can add the property to my dandelion list.
      Now brussels really helps make me marvel.I checked up Typical weeds about northern America and Quebec.Where is a thistle.

      That entail bristly shrub wasn’t can be found in the directory weeds.It needs to be a decent plant Maybe but Could not imagine how come.

      I must talk to your guy which will made that directory weeds.I just now don’t think they have it best!

      I think I will call Andy Rooney and then determine what the person thinks in this whole filter deal.I guarantee he could produce a very important response.
