Veterans Day

Thank you to all the Veterans out there, past, present and future.  I do appreciate you and will never forget what you sacrificed to keep me and mine safe. 

We are the Greatest Nation in the World and it wouldn't be that way without each and every one of you. 

Thank You.

107 and Amazing

My sister posted this on FaceBook and I have to say, it made my day.  I've watched it twice and it was hands-down, The Best 24 minutes of my day.  Maybe of my week so far.  I may watch it again.

Take 12 minutes to watch this documentary trailer.  Alice Herz-Sommer is an amazing woman with an outlook on life that is oh so inspiring.  She is all that is good about the human race.

This is the Official Trailer for a new documentary short about the oldest Holocaust survivor in the world Alice Herz-Sommer.


Happy Birthday Alice, may you live another 107 beautiful years.



"Music is God" ~ Alice Herz-Sommer




Just Wow.

I Did

Did YOU???
Even though I live in a Very Democratic County in Florida where my vote probably doesn't matter, I VOTED anyway.  I cancelled out ONE of those Democratic votes and that makes me very Happy.

And it seems like a lot of people in my shoes are feeling the same way.  Hopefully we will come out on top. 

Thank goodness.  This is the CHANGE I want.

By a Foot

This new cruise ship left Denmark the other day. Nothing newsworthy about that. Its the fact that the ship just barely cleared the bridge that kinda blows me away. It was a leap of faith it seems.

Royal Caribbean's Allure of the Seas passed under Denmark's Storebaelt Bridge with about a foot to spare, drawing applause from people on board the ship.
To make that happen, the crew lowered the ship's retractable twin smokestacks, carefully adjusted the ballast so the ship wouldn't be too light (and therefore sitting too high in the water) and boosted its speed.
Here is the whole article.

This is pretty insane.
