A Pittance of Time

Pull up a chair and grab a cup of Java for a cozy chat about what's on your mind and what's happening in your neck of the woods. This is a strictly for fun non-gardening topics.

Yes we shall Mike. I was most impressed with the production of this, and how it sunk into the hearts of people around the world!

I've seen this video before, but thanks for posting it, Mike. Makes me sob, every single time! I miss my dad most at this time of year!

As long as he was alive, no matter how sick or frail he was, he put on his blazer & beret, all his medals, and walked in the Armistice day parade.

Please, let us think about todays soldiers who bear unbearable wounds, inside and outside.

Please let us not waste a moment's time on beautiful pieces meant to wring our hearts.

They did NOT fight and die for this.

Some were lads out for a grand experience...a lot of them left a lot of aching hearts behind.

They STILL DO.

Do NOT get caught up in the War of 1812, which NO Canadian fought in.

Pay attention to those boys and girls coming back to us...CRIPPLED....WARPED.

And dear God in Heaven, the mothers and dads, who have no boy or girl to hold onto.

Think seriously about WAR. Think about what war leaves on the ground.

Demand better from our leaders.

The various parades in various parts of the country are not a Made For TV production....Please go, no matter what the weather, the cold.

Pay some RESPECT.
