I will be attending a ceremony for the Gold Star Mothers at White Chapel Cemetery in Troy, MI on Sunday. I am going to see if my wife will take pictures and I will post them next week. I hope that everyone will have a good weekend.

Well, I forgot to bring extra batteries for the camera and my wife was able to only take one picture before the camera died. There really wasn't anything special to take photos of anyway.

Repeats but still good

You have to read these...


At a time when our presidents and other politicians tend to apologize
for our country`s prior actions, here`s a refresher on how some of our
former patriots handled negative comments about our country.

These are good



JFK'S Secretary of State, Dean Rusk, was in France in the early 60's
when DeGaule decided to pull out of NATO. DeGaule said he wanted all US
military out of France as soon as possible.

Rusk responded "does that include those who are buried here?

DeGuale did not respond.

You could have heard a pin drop


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


When in England , at a fairly large conference, Colin Powell was asked
by the Archbishop of Canterbury if our plans for Iraq were just an
example of empire building by George Bush.

He answered by saying, 'Over the years, the United States has sent many
of its fine young men and women into great peril to fight for freedom
beyond our borders. The only amount of land we have ever asked for in
return is enough to bury those that did not return.'

You could have heard a pin drop.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



There was a conference in France where a number of international
engineers were taking part, including French and American. During a
break, one of the French engineers came back into the room saying 'Have
you heard the latest dumb stunt Bush has done? He has sent an aircraft
carrier to Indonesia to help the tsunami victims. What does he intended
to do, bomb them?'

A Boeing engineer stood up and replied quietly: 'Our carriers have three
hospitals on board that can treat several hundred people; they are
nuclear powered and can supply emergency electrical power to shore
facilities; they have three cafeterias with the capacity to feed 3,000
people three meals a day, they can produce several thousand gallons of
fresh water from sea water each day, and they carry half a dozen
helicopters for use in transporting victims and injured to and from
their flight deck. We have eleven such ships; how many does France
have?'


You could have heard a pin drop.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


A U.S. Navy Admiral was attending a naval conference that included
Admirals from the U.S. , English, Canadian, Australian and French
Navies. At a cocktail reception, he found himself standing with a large
group of Officers that included personnel from most of those countries.
Everyone was chatting away in English as they sipped their drinks but a
French admiral suddenly complained that, whereas Europeans learn many
languages, Americans learn only English. He then asked, 'Why is it that
we always have to speak English in these conferences rather than
speaking French?'

Without hesitating, the American Admiral replied, 'Maybe it's because
the Brit's, Canadians, Aussie's and Americans arranged it so you
wouldn't have to speak German.'


You could have heard a pin drop.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



AND THIS STORY FITS RIGHT IN WITH THE ABOVE...


Robert Whiting , an elderly gentleman of 83, arrived in Paris by plane.
At French Customs, he took a few minutes to locate his passport in his
carry on.

"You have been to France before, monsieur?" the customs officer asked
sarcastically.

Mr Whiting admitted that he had been to France previously.

"Then you should know enough to have your passport ready."

The American said, 'The last time I was here, I didn't have to show it."

"Impossible. Americans always have to show your passports on arrival in
France !"

The American senior gave the Frenchman a long hard look. Then he
quietly explained, ''Well, when I came ashore at Omaha Beach on D-Day in
1944 to help liberate this country, I couldn't find a single Frenchmen
to show a passport to."


You could have heard a pin drop.

Thats right, I used my wonder twin powers with one of the voices in my head and won.



Actually it was a security vulnerability in the newest update to the forum software, it affected a lot of websites using this forum software and the update was fixed very quickly. When I came across the problem, I called Scott at work and told him and he jumped on it right away and reupdated which fixed the problem.

We are not having any luck with the avatar issue though, that is also an issue with some other sites using this software but I am keeping an eye out for the fix.

Welcome to Thursday everyone. I am going to see Army play Eastern Michigan on Saturday and I will be working the Jerry Lewis telethon here in Detroit on Monday. I looks like it is going to be another busy weekend.
