It’s late November and my mind begins to dwell on Thanksgiving dinner— not eating, but cooking. more
Fads are a way of life in society. Diet fads, exercise fads, clothing fads, linguistic fads, animal fads - all these fly-by-night things that come barging into our lives, inspired by some sense of “fear of missing out,” then just as quickly, they are gone again. I am not a person usually affected by the concept of FOMO, I am at an age where I dress to look nice AND be comfortable, I like what I like without a care if it is popular; this is just one of the perks of aging, I suppose. more

The forty years after WWII were a time of upheaval in the United States Military. The world war had ended only five years earlier, and the veterans who saw combat were still adjusting to civilian life. The war’s former allies, the United States and the Soviet Union, were at each other's throats, often using other nations as a means of taking jabs at their nemesis.

Unlike Memorial Day, which pays homage to those service members no longer with us, Veterans Day respects those still able to feel the praise of a grateful populace. Every nation, be it Canada with Remembrance Day, France with Armistice Day, Britain with Remembrance Sunday, or America with Veterans Day, has a day established for demonstrating pride in their fighting forces. Interestingly, all of these countries chose on, or near, November 11 to have this holiday. What is it about the eleventh day of the eleventh month that makes it a prime choice for celebrating the military? more
