    Shakelton Whiskey

    Though a wee dated, what totally absorbing articles. Shackelton fans aside, I cannot fathom how exciting it must have been to literally grab this whiskey from the permafrost after so many years, test it, taste it and then produce a limited run. Oh, if I had the coins. Is anyone else as...

    Best WWII museums

    Perhaps it's better known as a windswept testimony to the healing power of prayer, but I think both the story and the beauty of the WWII Italian Chapel in the Orkney Islands to be very touching. It's amazing how few people know of it or the story of those who built it, stayed, and returned...

    In Rememberance

    You know.....I just wanted to recognize the passing of Delores Hope, wife of the funniest man I ever observed. His body of work, his timing, his sense of patriotism in doing all of those USO shows in Vietnam......and well, beside every great man, is a great woman, and Delores was that woman...

    Vintage Eyeglasses

    Just last month I received my Gold Shurons, with tortoise shell skull temples (Gold Shuron P3 Ful-Vue #7205) from the Optometrist Attic, and couldnt be happier. I would recommend them to anyone looking for vintage wear. One interesting point Vick makes is that while some of the glasses are...

    What Was The Last Movie You Watched?

    I watched Robert Redford's, "The Conspirators," based on the Lincoln assassination. Robin Wright was superb as Mary Surratt.....ditto James McAvoy as her lawyer, Frederick Aiken and Kevin Klein as Edwin Stanton. Costuming, hairstyles, dialect....all were first rate. Filmed in...

    Albert Brown, Bataan Death March survivor, 105

    I've always found it so disheartening that so many think WWII happened, and was won in Europe alone. If anyone would like to immerse themselves and understand just how brave these Bataan survivors were, and the gritty fight they put up with substandard equipment, blunting the cream of Japan's...

    What is your favorite aircraft of all time?

    Based on a family friend, who was a WWII & Korean War Marine Corps aviator, the Colonel swore by the Corsair. He said it could take a pounding, and anyone who understands Marine Corps close air support.......well, that's good enough for me.

    (KNIVES) Let's see some sharp pointy objects

    I wanted to upgrade my hunting knife last year and found a really nice knife, made in Spain by Muela. It's from their Tejon series. It's a 17, with the stag handle. Well balanced, stylish, and razor sharp. I love it. It's number is #3 in the photo link attached...

    Aftershave : That nostalgic true masculine smell!

    Very fond memories of Bay Rum. It's still applied, along with a dusting talc, at the barber shop I go to. I have found an intriguing source for some fragrances I wish to gamble with.....among them are a bay rum. I stumbled on them purely by chance one evening while surfing. The company is...

    D Day, then and now photos

    Fascinating. The ability of the European stone mason is pretty amazing. You can't help but view them as someone with an ant's mentality, in which, that which gets destroyed, is immediately rebuilt. Secondly, the then and now photographs are riveting. Thanks for providing the link.
