    Re: July 4, 1776!

    Much of that stuff I watch for the "erntertainment" of it, not that I expect to learn much. And military history, I think the guys making them tell their assistants, "find me video of a plane crash"...

    Re: July 4, 1776!

    Yea, she and her cousins really are more enamored of the music and don't treat the play as a whole as complete history. And Langly, the young one I mean has been a near perfect gpa through school to...

    Re: Really Little LBC

    I tried to assemble a full set, used to find them at flea markets back in the 80s. Didn't quite manage but it is all there from 1960 to now the final one. Eventually I'll sell them since things...

    Re: Really Little LBC

    Seems that the time has come, the print edition, after coming back from being a literary attempt with no photos, has been discontinued. Like so many magazines, just couldn't complete with the short...

    It was never determined 100% for sure, but it's believed it was careless welding/cutting that started it.

    Reminds me of a story from last fall where some woman on the east coast bought an inflatible pool for her kids. Rather than deflating it she got stopped by police with it strapped to the roof of her...

    I'm in the suburbs, about 20 miles maybe from the broadcast antennas so outside of bad weather times, reception isn't a problem, and I have rabbit ears inside. Since I only have it on in the...

    I have read before that "grizzled" old veterans marrying much younger women was fairly common in that time period. The last known widow passed in 2004.
