My respects to all who served. Have a great Veterans Day.


Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Someday your life will flash in front of your eyes. Make sure it is worth watching.

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

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.

A great poem. To this, I would add


Tissues out, it's a tear-jerker.


"They might look the same, but they don't taste the same."

This a link to video done by local entertainers in company with the Royal Nfld Regiment for this Armistice Day. Best to watch full screen so the black and white footage is more clear and the writing is more legible. God bless all who served and still serve.
