One A Personal Note

There are three rules that I live by:

1. Never get less than twelve hours sleep

2. Never play cards with a guy who has the same first name as a city

3. And never get involved with a woman with a tattoo of a dagger on her body.

Now you stick to that, and everything else is cream cheese.

D-Day 65th Anniversary

Remember the fallen

June 6, 1944. One of the most recognizable battles in modern history goes down on the shores of Normandy, France. On this day, Allied forces swam across the English Channel and began a campaign to liberate Western Europe from Nazi forces during World World II and begin a long and deadly struggle.

They faced the Atlantic Wall, a 2,400-mile-long concrete bunker, flanked with tank ditches, barbed wire, guns and obstacles, many designed to trap any force trying to cross the wall. Forces like the 175,000 men who washed ashore that day, 50,000 vehicles and 11,000 planes that were deployed to attack against the fortress.

The soldiers were divided among different points of entry, including Omaha Beach and Utah Beach, among a few others.

The fighting continued for months, with immense casualties on both sides. Allied progress was slow, gaining literally yards every day. It wasn’t until July that they had made some small breakthroughs, allowing them to move 40 miles a day.

The landings at Normandy marked the beginning of the fight for Europe, culminating in the liberation of Paris, a cornerstone in defeating Nazi Germany.

However, the D-Day landing did not come without a price. On the first day of combat, an estimated 9,000 soldiers lost their lives. History can better remember and honor their lives with a visual reminder of the chaos and devastation of the day.

David Carradine Found Dead

This sucks, this guy was a good actor and awesome at martial arts. Even hosted a cool show on t.v. about old west technology. He fucking hung himself. WTF! Sad to see him go.
Best quote about his death. Actor Rainn Wilson, star of TV's "The Office," said on Twitter: "R.I.P. David Carradine. You were a true hero to so many of us children of the 70s. We'll miss you, Kwai Chang Caine."

Randy Johnson wins 300 Games

Congrats Randy, you deserve it. I was living in Arizona at the time when he and Curt Schilling won the World Series in 2001 and that was awesome. That championship run made me like him as a ball player. Read more here:;_ylt=AnTyuyJCx9FoviDLF6NuwOIRvLYF?gid=290604220
