Happy Memorial Day to you, too, TM. Mr. Doble does sound like a great guy who will be missed.


The Noble Doble. 'Complications of pneumonia' must have been particularly hard on his two daughters. Pneumonia, is, however, known as the old man's friend. There was the seventh last surviving Spanish-American War vet, urged to turn away from the wall and move around to help the nurses take care of him, who responded with "God will take care of me", and died three days later, quite peacefully, and without ever saying another word.


I am proud to be an American.

Thanks for all the great posts TM!


Update: Don't forget to apply sunscreen to the back of the neck.


Good morning all, and Happy Memorial Day. God bless Mr. Doble and EMS Post 53.

I am envious of those of you living in towns with parades and ceremonies today. Austin does not seem to bother with such things. (Though we do have a great Veterans' Day Parade every November.)


Happy Memorial Day to everyone!

And a Memorial Day request: Operation Gratitude has shipped over 360,000 care packages to the troops deployed overseas, but after this weekend we have some 4700 packages prepared for which we don't have service members' addresses yet.

If you have a relative, friend or acquaintance serving overseas, and you'd like them to get a care package, send their deployment address to Operation Gratitude and they will be shipped on a first-come, first-serve basis. If you don't want to visit the OG website, send the address to me and I will forward it.


Happy Memorial Day


Remembrance. Sometimes a scarce commodity.

Band of Brothers theme. Get your goosebumps and tears here.

Skin Care

The importance of keeping your skin healthy can't be overemphasized. It's the body's first defense against disease and infection, and it protects your internal organs from injuries. It is, in fact, the largest organ in the body. Skin Care Treatment helps to your body temperature and prevents excess fluid loss, and it also helps your body remove excess water and salt. Most women strive to keep their skin looking youthful. http://skin-care-treatment-natural-tips.blogspot.com
