Heading out home for the weekend tonight...

Not sure how much time I'll have in front of the computer but I'll try to keep in touch.

Tomorrow is remembrance day (Veterans day other places) so I'd like to take this time to remind you of the vicious horrors that real people faced and will continue to face to keep our lands free (except for taxes.... stupid taxes). Most of us escape reality with video the voilence of video games and probably never fully realize the reality behind what we are playing. Take a second or 11 to remember those who have fallen and those who continue to keep up safe and sound.

In Flanders Fields
In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

- John McCrae
