Memorial Day in the USA

It's Memorial day in the USA today, a national holiday, and a day to remember the sacrifices that men and women serving in the armed forces have made for their country. We remember on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month here in the UK, and wear a poppy with pride. I just had to share with you this lovely email that I got from one of the readers of this blog. Thank you Jan

En,

As I watch the tv and remember my years as a child during WWII and the Vietnam War more recently, I do not only think of all my friends and family members that have and are serving this country. I also remember the devastation and sacrifice of your own country and the other countries also. We did not have instant news during WWII and had to rely on late news in the papers and the newsreels at the movies. We have been so fortunate not to have any wars on own own land except in the beginning of this country and our own Civil War. So please accept my thanks to your fellow country men and women who served so valiantly.

Jan, Bradenton, Florida


I don't know what is going on with Blogger this weekend, I have been visiting my favourite sites and keep getting a page unavailable message, then the annoying windows message page. I have found that if you hit the back button, from this error page, it takes you back to the blog and it works perfectly. Bizarre. So if I haven't visited you, it's not for want of trying my friends x

You are not the only one having problems with Blogger. I have had this problem for several days, must be a problem with the Blogspot server. Very annoying!
