17 Years

The world changed forever 17 years ago.  I remember, I was in highschool, at our welcome to the new school year Mass.  When it was over, the president of the school announced it to us all (it was only around 9am).  We went back to our classrooms and watched it unfold throughout the day.

Some teachers tried to give lessons, some let us watch the TVs and see what was going on.  Most people were quiet and somber.

I remember coming home and listening to the fighter jets flying overhead.  I live just 30 miles north of Manhattan.  F-16s (I remember they only had 1 tail) were flying alot that evening.

I remember watching at home as Building #7 fell.  It didn’t seem like things were ever going to stop.

I’ll never forget it, will you?

New Shoes

You may or may not have noticed, but the blog has some new shoes on.  A few weeks ago the server went kapoot.  I don’t know exactly what happened, I think there was a storm and surge and the server wouldn’t boot.  Either way, the server is up and running now.  I had been in the process of changing over to a new server, I just did not have everything set up and working yet.   And that is why the default theme is here.  I haven’t moved the old one over yet.

In the mean time, enjoy the single:
