CHARLESTOWN, Mass. (Jan. 14, 2008) The first major snowfall of the New Year blankets the USS Constitution. Despite the weather "Old Ironsides," remained open for free public tours. At 210 years-old, USS Constitution is the oldest commissioned warship afloat in the world, manned by 67 active-duty United States Sailors and visited by nearly half a million visitors annually.

You Are an Plain M&M
You are conventional and down to earth. You have an easy time fitting in.
You are popular, and you tend to have a solid group of friends. You are easy to get along with.

You love to enjoy treats, but you never overindulge. You're not the type to pick up bad habits.
You are happy to have a routine, and if anything helps break that up a bit, you're all for it.

You tend to be more optimistic than most people. You find complaining to be a waste of time.
You are more emotional than you might seem at first. It's easy to make you melt.

You Are a Peanut M&M.

"You shy away from being a leader but often end up as one anyway.
You are easily bored by chores and work. You're always looking for a distraction of some sort.

How do they do this stuff?
Evening Kathy.

Good evening, Kathy!

You are thoughtful and a bit of an introvert. You happily spend a lot of time alone.
You believe that you can’t really know yourself without reflection, and you know yourself quite well.

You are detail oriented and pay attention to life’s subtleties. You tend to notice what others miss.
You tend to strive for perfection in all aspects of your life. You are meticulous.

You enjoy working on your own projects, whether they’re for work for for fun. You like to feel immersed.
You are very motivated once you get into what you’re doing. You have an excellent work ethic and enjoy quietly working on something.

*************
This is only partially true. Yes, I love my hobbies. But I love a good party, too. And rumor has it I make one memorable. But that’s for another quiz.

I took an extended lunch today and went to the East side of the Capitol for the unrolling of the Special Ops Speaks Petition for appointment of a Select Committee to investigate the Benghazi debacle.

I heard several excellent speakers, including LTC Allen West:



I walked up to Col West at the end of the presentation and shook his hand. He is the real deal as far as I'm concerned and I would be delighted if he decides to run for national office.

I’m definitely PEANUT.

It’s really just a question of health. I am greatly influenced by the fact that M&M Peanut is one of the 5 basic food groups along with Snickers, coffee, fudge and peanut brittle.

Don’t believe me? Look it up in sugarapedia.

In this weather, we always have hangar doors open. We go through tons of DEET and OFF. We also use mosquito magnets that burn propane and capture the pests.

They are life savers for those times we are out sweating and turning a wrench.

Oh dear, SandRat. We’re too different to even be in the same bag of M&Ms.

I’m a Mini M&M:
You are fun and even a little outrageous. You’re constantly surprising people. If there’s a good time, you’re going to find it. You don’t sit around and wait for fun to happen.

You are proactive in so many aspects of your life. You are big on investigating anything that interests you. You tend to introduce friends to things that they’ve never even heard of before. You’re very in the know.

You tend to be a very hands on person. BUT NOT LIKE WEINER. You like to do things yourself, and you have a creative streak. Whenever you feel bored, you get up and make something - whether it’s art or a batch of cookies.

OK, that’s it. Gotta get up and make some pasta now.

BAND OF BROTHERS

WORLD WAR II


Soldiers of the 101st Airborne Division "Screaming Eagles"
June 7, 1944 at Ste.Marie du Mont, France

"THIS DAY IS CALL'D the feast of Crispian.
He that outlives this day, and comes safe home,
Will stand a tip-toe when this day is named,
And rouse him at the name of Crispian.
He that shall live this day, and see old age,
Will yearly on the vigil feast his neighbours,
And say, "To-morrow is Saint Crispian."
Then will he strip his sleeve and show his scars,
And say, "These wounds I had on Crispin's day."

KOREA

Marines of the "Chosin Few", 1st Marine Division
Chosin Reservoir, Korea, December 1950

"OLD MEN FORGET; yet all shall be forgot,
But he'll remember with advantages
What feats he did that day. Then shall our names,
Familiar in his mouth as household words,
Harry the King, Bedford, and Exeter,
Warwick and Talbot, Salisbury and Gloucester,
Be in their flowing cups freshly rememb'red.
This story shall the good man teach his son;
And Crispin Crispian shall ne'er go by,
From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remembered."

VIETNAM

FMF Corpsman D. R. Howe treats the wounds of Pfc. D. A. Crum, "H" Company, 2nd Battalion, Fifth Marine Regiment, during Operation Hue City.


"WE FEW, WE HAPPY FEW, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition:
And gentlemen in England now a-bed
Shall think themselves accursed they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day."

AFGHANISTAN

Soldiers of the 101st Airborne Division in action, Afghanistan, 2011


"ONCE MORE UNTO THE BREACH, dear friends, once more,
Or close the wall up with our English dead.
In peace there's nothing so becomes a man
As modest stillness and humility;
But when the blast of war blows in our ears,
Then imitate the action of the tiger;
Stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood,
Disguise fair nature with hard-favour'd rage;
Then lend the eye a terrible aspect;
Let it pry through the portage of the head
Like the brass cannon; let the brow o'erwhelm it
As fearfully as does a galled rock
O'erhang and jutty his confounded base,
Swill'd with the wild and wasteful ocean."

(Henry V, Act IV, Scene iii)


THE STRUGGLE AGAINST TYRANNY GOES ON,
AS IT HAS FROM TIMES IMMEMORIAL.
THE BAND OF BROTHERS STILL STANDS FAST IN THE BREACH!

THEY HAVE OUR SIX!

Honor Them For Their Service And Sacrifice!

Here's another:

Not a large crowd - a hundred or so - lots of Special Forces, Marine Recon, Navy Seals - probably the safest place on the planet during that hour.

Good morning, moose...good to hear that you are finally getting some relief from the heat....and even some rain. Good for you.

Really warm here still. A little rain last weekend, but RAIN would be nice. d:o)

Yes...Chocolate would melt and get ruined, either when being shipped, or worse, in the Soldiers pocket!

So the candy coating was invented to keep that from happening.

I cannot imagine that horrid job. How did Lynn-DAH take it?

Are you now forewarned?
