Hiya Maj. Thank you. I was first. Amazing.
Let's just hope that Common Tator's brain tumor is operable.
Hi ya, in return!
Absolutely wonderful, dmd25. Thank you dearly for posting this.
Thanks, Wolfstar for today's Dose. I think this is one of my all-time favorites of President and Mrs. Bush also. Great photo of them both.
Congratulations toaster winners.
You are welcome. It was sort of funny for me...sitting there listening to MWS tell his story and knowing that the Dosers would appreciate it!
And what's that tasty snack?
1 I love you, O LORD, my strength.
2 The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer;
my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge.
He is my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
3 I call to the LORD, who is worthy of praise,
and I am saved from my enemies.
a well chosen Psalm tonight, especially for me..
I'm getting ready to call it a night.
I'm so happy all three of us tied for first!
NO hurry on mine. I will be thrilled with the photo of the day that Wolfstar posted.
Thank you very much for this help we really appreciate this
Could even be great grandmother looking at the age of her and the boy.
(((((mystery, Mike, and Jon)))))
What a wonderful photo and thanks for the info on the ship
We do indeed !!
Thanks for all those wonderful Barney photos
I have a 10 second rule so they have all won a toaster :0)
It is a lovely photo
That is a lovely photo thanks for posting it here and on the Sunday talk show thread
My pleasure....always eager to help a fellow freeper.
Wow! What a wonderful experience! Thank you for sharing it. I'm really enjoying the book - for someone like me with no experience with the military, it's a great behind-the-scenes look at all of the intelligence (not only from the field, but in the men themselves) which goes into a military operation, as well as the courage, intelligence, and skill of the forces in the field. God bless you and your family.
Unfortunately, no, but there's a Sunday Morning Talk Show thread that runs every Sunday. You may find commentary about Card there.
Since I didn't see it, I'd be interested in your point of view.
Thanks very much for posting that heartwarming story of President Bush and Bruce Vincent. Our President is a genuinely great man, and stories like this give us insights into why -- not how, for we know that -- but why he is great.
Just catching up on the posts, and I had to comment on this. I really like the Beltway Boys, Fred Barnes and Mort Kondracke (sp), even though they're probably even earlier than the 1970s. They're always at odds but always so gentlemanly with each other that it's a pleasure to watch them disagree. So, I hope Fox doesn't cut them out.
As I said in an earlier reply, that photo is excellent on several levels. The lighting. The photographic quality. The composition. The intriguing expression on the President's face. How attractive both GWB and his Laura look.
It's a photo that should win awards, like a Pulitzer, but probably never will because the people who hand out such awards are mostly Leftists.
Altura, I think the update on his prayer thread said that the tumor was removed and he is now in physical therapy. Tator's friend who posted the prayer thread only found out about what happened about a week after he was hospitalized.
*snort* Now THERE'S an understatement!
That's awesome that you're gonna get to see Tony Snow! It would great to plan one of our 'Doses' in his honor!
Hi snugs. You're right. She could be a great grandmother. The scenes are sweet though. Too bad Yahoo didn't identify the people.
Thanks for that link and typing up the words - wonderful
Hi there, yes, things are beginning to get back to normal .. sort of .. I was making a copy of a memory video to send to a relative, and decided to check the DVD to make sure it was okay. I was shocked to find myself sobbing while watching the video. Guess I haven't gotten over losing my mom just yet.
But .. the final approval of the cover of my book is just days away, and then the printing can begin. I'm really getting excited.
Please give me the link as well when you have finished I would love to see it.
Sure, I have to update this one website, tomorrow; and I'll try to do that little project, too. Thanks for the interest, snugs.
Off to call my Mom at 9 - nite all!
You're welcome, snugs. When the USS Constitution was a young ship, she fought. You might enjoy this short history from the official USS Constitution website:
Launched on October 21, 1797, she first put to sea in 1798. Having remained part of the U.S. Navy since her launching day, the Constitution is today the oldest commissioned warship afloat in the world.
President George Washington named her for the document, the Constitution, and she is the only Navy ship ever to bear that name.
USS Constitution is also the first American Navy ship to fight Arabs. In 1803-1805, President Thomas Jefferson sends her to the Mediterranean Sea as flagship of the third Mediterranean squadron. The mission is to attempt to force the Barbary pirates from their renewed policies of aggression against U.S. merchant shipping. With Commodore Edward Preble initially in command, the Constitution and other ships of the squadron mount five attacks against Tripoli.
During the War of 1812, the Constitution's historic fight with HMS Guerriere takes place some 600 miles east of Nova Scotia on the afternoon of August 19, 1812. After an hour of inconclusive maneuvering and shooting, the two settle down to a short-range slugfest. After 20 minutes the Briton's mizzenmast falls, and a short time later both her remaining masts go overboard. At some point in the battle, someone reportedly sees a British shot bounce off the Constitution's side, and shouts, "Huzzah! Her sides are made of iron!"-and so is born the nickname "OLD IRONSIDES." The Americans have 14 casualties; the British, 79. The Guerriere is so badly damaged she has to be sunk after the surviving crew are brought onboard the Constitution.
In recognition of this spectacular victory -- incredibly motivating to a nation that had seen many military defeats in the war to date -- Congress awards Capt. Isaac Hull a special gold medal, his officers medals of silver, and the crew $50,000.
I can beat that have not updated my CV for 25 years.
I'm thinking more of retreads like Eleanor Clift, Bob Beckel, and a bunch of others along those lines.
I wish you every success with it. :)
Something really intrigues me about that photo. I think it's the fact that President Bush is in focus with Mrs. Bush slightly out of focus in the background but very easily distinguishable. Artistically there's a message there. Something about it defines the role Laura has in Pres. Bush's life: not dominating his role as President as a former first lady did, but solidly there by his side, both looking forward together with purpose (not looking backward nor inward), while also companionably enjoying the joys they encounter on the whole journey.
Perhaps I'm reading too much into it, but I think that's one of the things defines true art: something that has a message for each viewer. :)
I agree that we need to be open to younger people and their ideas - not to pass over older people but to realise that the younger generation also has much to offer.
Exactly. That photo truly transcends mere news photography. It's a work of art.
I think that is a wonderful idea
Very much so. Younger people bring an energy and fresh perspective that, in its way, is just as valuable as the wisdom older people have acquired.
Ditto the WOO-HOO!
I think once before we had a three way tie but it is very rare.
Toffee covered popcorn I think
