May you rest in peace, your brothers and sisters have the watch.

  1. Noticed something interesting in the last week. When I try to load your webpage while running a proxy that says I ‘m in the UK, it won’t load. Switched to US and the site loaded right away. Interesting, no? I’ve had similar problems with Drudge Report lately.

    • Thought Police at work. Have had similar problems with some foreign sites lately.

  2. I’ve said “I have the watch” many times but never when I anticipated not making it back. Damn, this day always gets me. I heard a phrase, on NPR of all places, that summed it up nicely: “Protect the innocent; heal the wounded; honor the dead”. The people I know who have not served are puzzled when I try to explain…

  3. JMI/Beans- Interesting… I didn’t know I had a problem…

    All- Thanks for the comments, and yes, it did get dusty over here too.

  4. In Flanders fields the poppies blow
    Between the crosses, row on row,
    That mark our place; and in the sky
    The larks, still bravely singing, fly
    Scarce heard amid the guns below.

    We are the Dead. Short days ago
    We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
    Loved and were loved, and now we lie
    In Flanders fields.

    Take up our quarrel with the foe:
    To you from failing hands we throw
    The torch; be yours to hold it high.
    If ye break faith with us who die
    We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
    In Flanders fields.

    John McCrae, Canadian Army, 1915
