We mustnt forget

Some would quite rightly say, one of my more serious posts on here. Tomorrow is the 11th day, of the 11th month, and 94 years ago, it held even more significance than now. Yes, the end of WW1. We cannot possibly imagine what they went through in that war, I doubt we could even imagine it as awful as I suspect the reality was. No, I’m not going to get critical of leaders on either side, just admire those brave men who followed their orders. All survivors are now gone to a better place, to join their friends from those awful battlefields once again. Indeed, earlier this year we lost the last survivor of the Battle of Britain, a whole war later.  So please, wherever you are, at the 11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month, take a few moments to remember them.

On a slightly more lighthearted item, it was when I was doing my NFL picks this week, that I noticed one fixture, which probably means more to two people than most, Buffalo @ New England. A better placing in the schedule, and it would have been a game I might have been going to. But as the weather recently has proved, we did the right thing by not waiting for now to take that holiday lol!

One last addition to this, tomorrow is a very special persons birthday, and I just like to mention it here. No name, they will know who I mean, and for the rest, its just a nice milestone in their life. Someone who has done a lot for me, and surely will again, given the chance. Thank you.
