Veterens Point of View Memorial Day

God Bless AmericaTo me, the first thing that comes to mind when I think of Memorial Day is the sacrifice of all those fallen military. I think of the World Wars, and Korea, and Vietnam. The Middle East. The World Trade Center. Fallen heroes. What would the world be like today if they had not made the ultimate sacrifice?

I certainly think of my service. The friendships, the brotherhood. Soldiers old and young. Where are they now, what has their life been like? Faces that I remember of young men in their prime. Now would be old, like mine. We are only young in our mind. Sgt’s, Lieutenants, Captains, Majors, Colonels. I remember Major Reeves, from Korea, communications post at the DMZ.

Keep the memory of those fallen always. And give thanks to those that have and are serving now.

God Bless America, Always!


“Amsterdam It Man 1” – 5 days in

Well, not really much going on, other than a fucking volcano!! WTF? This happens to me, WHY?  As of now, no flights. At sounding paranoid, I went ahead and booked my accommodation for an extra 5 days, just in case. My flight back to Philadelphia (then on to RIC), is still on for the 21st. If I have to stay longer, I am covered. Good thing to, because there is not an empty bed here, or anywhere else close, for that matter. Alright, now with the dirty….

First day in, late morning, bad bad jet lag all day. Forced myself to stay up until midnight to get “acclimated”.  Worked out well. First stop was “Barney’s”. I was there until 4 in the afternoon. Had some Nepalese Hash and some “NYC Diesel”, which was kick ass. Ate there. Just chilled chilled back at the room and watched the view out the window that night. Watched some TV. Went down the street and bought a bottle of Jenever later that night. Passed out around 12:15.

2nd day up and off to the Dampkring. In my opinion, it’s the best in Amsterdam. Beautiful place, great menu, great staff. 10 + in my book.

3rd day sick all morning. (Jenever). Out at 3pm for food. “Hutspot” with some braised part of a cow. Some Streusal bread.

Yesterday and today strolled around the square. Pissed in a public urinal and hit my 2nd fave, The Grey Area”. Got some Jack Herer. I like the The Grey Area, lot of celebrity stuff here, best bar and music overall.  (Went by the “Free”, but it was crowded, so I plan on going back by there Monday. Tomorrow is probably going to be rest day :p.  Stay in, not much going on on Sundays.

More later.

Does God use Facebook or Twitter?

Does God use Facebook or Twitter?

I mean, I know there are a lot of people that use Facebook and Twitter to actually visualize their prayers. In other words, they post their prayers to the Almighty via Facebook or Twitter or some other social networking web site.

Many people say those prayers are often answered. Do they believe the prayers were answered because it was posted online or because they had faith it would be answered? I have always believed that prayer is in the heart, that God knows what you are going to pray for before you even pray for it.

So, if a prayer is answered on faith, then what difference does it make how you pray? None, I say.

Of course, I don’t believe the Lord is reading Facebook or Twitter, but I believe He does hear the prayers of your heart, however you choose to pray.


Have a nice day!

Have a nice day

Have a nice day

Sometimes we humans will tend to take things way too serious, even the smallest thing. Remember to take time to enjoy your life and to live with a little zest. At my age, I tend to realize that there are fewer years ahead than I have left behind. Life is short, even shorter at 50. “Don’t sweat the small stuff”, a quote I remember from some obscure source, yet nonetheless true. Take a minute of your day, each day to greet a stranger and ask them, “How are you today”, but REALLY MEAN IT.  It is a beautiful morning, mainly because I woke up and managed to stand up. So, when you look in the mirror this morning and see that old young person staring back at you, ask them to laugh a little, tell a joke, and remember a friend. Maybe you should call someone you have not talked to in a while, just to let them know you still think about them on occasion. Anyway, there are lots of things you can do to make your day, and your life, a little better. Seek those things out, and remember, making someone else’s life brighter will only make your own life brighter.
