Remember Pearl

There is no Alternate History this year, just straight up remembrance.  76 years ago the world changed (for the better I would say).  It was a major event, and even now people are second guessing the circumstances that eventually led up to it.  But I have this much to say.  Don’t judge the past on … Continued

The 7th of December When the Japs secured their fate The years numbered four But we evened the score And it was surely worth the wait That’s a good version of the The fifth of November poem.  Sure there are more lines that I’m not adding to, but honestly, who else remembers anything except the … Continued

Another year has gone by, another few gallons of oil have seeped out of The Arizona, but still, time marches on, and still we remember.  The people effected might no longer be with us, but the memories of them, are still.  And the actions, both directly, and indirectly, changed the course of history.  All of … Continued

December 7, 1941, a day that should be remembered far more then it currently is, now adays.  Youngsters have little regard for WWII except in an overload of great to horrible video games set in that era (because let’s face it, killin’ Nazis’ will never get old).  Take some time out of your day to … Continued
