    Pearl Harbor Anniversary Dec 7th 1941

    Its been 78 years since the Japaneseicon attack on Pearl Harbor. I have some photos of the US Navy ship postmarks (all before Dec 7th) of the ships that were at Pearl Harbor. I had collected these envelopes many years ago.

    Earlier in the year I found myself explaining the Japaneseicon attack on the US fleet at Pearl Harbour to a younger co-worker because he had never heard of it and knew nothing about it.



    The other day I explained to another younger co-worker that if you want something it does actually help to say please.

    One does have to wonder exactly what is taught in schools these days?

    Definitely NOT survival or self-help skills. This new breed is being taught to depend on big gov't and not themselves. This is not local to you either, it's pretty much a "western" world thing...
