Very nice, very beautiful. There is nothing on the East Coast to compare with that. My severe lifelong acrophobia would keep me from enjoying such an experience, that that is strictly my problem.

There's nothing remarkable about it. All one has to do is hit the right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself.

What about these:
United States
Hanging Rock, Virginia, an unincorporated community in Roanoke County
Hanging Rock, West Virginia, an unincorporated community
Hanging Rock (North Carolina), a mountain in Western North Carolina, also known as Bear's Paw
Hanging Rock (Upper Merion Township, Pennsylvania), a formation
Hanging Rock State Park, a North Carolina State Park in the Piedmont

And New York's Whiteface Mountain! Regards, Len :)

I know that there are hanging rocks and have seen some myself. I was referring to the different quality of the scenery, not that is chopped liver on the East Coast.

I wonder if there are any hanging rocks that look like a large potato knish--my favorite--however even a kasha knish would be fine--imagine sitting on a hanging rock that resembled a knish and then starting to munch on it! Regards, Len [fleeing]

PS-talk about knishes thank goodness gabilas has recovedred from their fire and even my Shoprite out here in the boondocks is carrying them! "A fire at a factory billed as the world’s biggest maker of knishes has created countrywide shock and oy for those who can’t seem to find the Jewish treats anywhere."

I was introduced to knishes at Katz's in Rockville. It was near where I worked on East Jefferson Street. That's where someone explained to me what kasha is (buckwheat groats). Perhaps you've been there.

Never heard of it-thanks for the alert. As you probably remember we stayed in Rockville for 2 nights to be close to my Anaheim cousin and had 2 very pleasant dining experiences--I'll keep the place in mind--apparently it's no longer named Katz's.

A trip advisor reviewer says:
“Time to update name & info: KosherMart, no longer Katz's”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

Time to update the store info; it's called KosherMart, not Katz's. It's a former A&P market circa 1970 and the interior hasn't changed all that much since. All that's missing are the Eight O'Clock coffee grinders. Some days you come in and find that they're out of stock on items you'd expect, and the freezer cases can use some organization and cleaning.

That said, it does have:

- a decent bakery counter with great fresh pita bread and a mix of dairy & pareve (non-dairy) items
- a lot of different packaged (fresh and frozen) kosher meats, chicken, and cheeses with enough selection to satisfy most levels of kashrut (the store is under the Captial-K, the main supervision for MD/DC)
- a very good selection of kosher wines - not just Manischewitz, the store carries varieties of white, rose, red, sweet, dry, champagnes, etc. etc. from all over the world.
- good selection of Israeli spices, candies, and canned goods.
- good selection of Israeli salads, chummus, tahini, babaganoush, matbucha, etc. etc. Some are Sabra, others are their own.
- a deli counter that I've found to be hit or miss - but they do make excellent chicken pot pies.
- a decent Israeli sharwarma & falafel place attached to it called Moti's Grill.

Given that the area is still relatively bereft of options for kosher shoppers and diners (compared to NYC, Miami, or L.A., there are only a couple of markets in the area) it's good that there is a place like this around. If you can't take the drive up to Baltimore or the tri-state area to stock up, it's worth a visit.

When you said "No longer Katz's," I was shocked, then I realized which Katz's you were talking about. :) That comes from skimming messages too quickly.

LOL! We've been down on the lower eastside quite a lot on recent trips into Manhattan and have passed Katz's several times recently--Sue refuses to let me get a pastrami on rye but one of these times I'm gonna disobey her! Regards, Len :)

Further update:

Koshermart in Rockville is now known as Moti's Market. It looks like a substantial upgrade:
