Veterans Day

On a local note Veterans Day is Sunday, November 11th. A quick shout out to my brother and sister veterans past and present.

As in years past, several restaurants and other businesses are recognizing Vets with free meals and other discounts.

Also happy Marine Corp birthday.

In Flanders Fields

In Flanders Fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, MD (1872-1918) Canadian Army

These free dinner at Ponderosa commercials are incredibly annoying.

It's true, we are aliens. But what are you going to do about it? It's a two-party system. You have to vote for one of us.

Remembrance Day here in Canada.

We're off to the Cenotaph later this morning to honour our veterans.
My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we'll change the world. - Jack Layton

Happy Veterans Day to all who served! Semper Fidelis to my brothers and sisters! Now to make it to D.C. one of these years.
Long live the photographer! Got memories? Record your moments with current electronic devices. I stumble, fall, get up and do it again.

Thank you to all who served and are serving. We're the land of the free only because of the brave.
