Three days before Christmas in 1943, two hours past midnight, 14 men climbed into an airplane and lifted into the dark sky over the slumbering hamlet of West Palm Beach. Their journey lasted but a few moments, and killed every one of them.

Silly Sunday

First day of school in Michigan.

The teacher began calling out the names of the pupils:

“Mustafa Al Eih Zeri?” “Here.”
“Achmed El Kabul?” “Here.”
“Fatima Al Hayek? ” “Here.”
“Ali Abdul Olmi?” “Here.”
“Mohammed Bin Kadir?” “Here.”
“Ali Son al Len” Silence in the classroom.

“Ali Son al Len” Continued silence as everyone looked around the room.
She repeated, “Is this the name of any child here?”

A girl stood and said, “I think that’s me, Miss. It’s pronounced Alison Allen”

Corporate life

charlie sheen

The stars of a large Television Station were each called in to the Chairman’s office until only the newest, most junior star was left sitting nervously outside.

Finally, it was his turn to be summoned.

He entered the office to find the Chairman and eight directors seated solemnly around a table.

The Chairman turned to the young man and asked, “Have you ever slept with Miss Foyt, my secretary?”

“No sir, certainly not.”

“Are you absolutely sure?”, persisted the Chairman.

“Absolutely, sir. I’ve never laid a finger on her.”

“You’d swear to that on a stack of bibles?”

“Yes, I swear I’ve never had any sexual relationship with your secretary.”

“Good. Then you fire her!”

(Charlie Sheen has nothing to do with this post. I just liked his pervie smile> LOL)

Touched by an Angel?

A 14-year-old girl with a history of serious health issues lay dying of pneumonia in a hospital room. But as her mother waited for the girl to take her last breath, an image of bright light appeared on a security monitor. Within an hour, the dying girl began a recovery that doctors are at a loss to explain.

But Colleen Banton, the girl’s mother, has an explanation. “This was an image of an angel,” she told NBC News in a story reported Tuesday on TODAY. She credited the apparition with saving the life of her daughter Chelsea.

The incident happened in Charlotte, N.C., Chelsea had been born five weeks prematurely with developmental disabilities and had battled serious health problems all her life.

She is particularly susceptible to the types of pneumonia infections that had taken her to death’s door. Told that there was no hope for Chelsea, Colleen Banton had just instructed doctors to take her daughter off life support and allow nature to take its course when the apparition was seen.

It would be another two months before Chelsea finally left the hospital to return home, where she is about to celebrate her 15th birthday as well as Christmas. Her mother is convinced that Chelsea was saved by divine intervention.

Wednesday’s Hero – 16 July 2014 – Capt. Linda Bray

This post was suggested by Steve

Capt. Linda Bray
Capt. Linda Bray
53 years old from Clemmons, North Carolina
988th Military Police Company
U.S. Army

Capt. Linda Bray made national headlines when she became the first woman in U.S. history to lead troops into combat during the 1989 invasion of Panama. As a result she was met with a lot of resistance and anger to what she had accomplished because she was a woman.

Bray and 45 soldiers under her command, nearly all of them men, encountered a unit of Panamanian special operations soldiers holed up inside a military barracks and dog kennel. They killed three of the enemy and took one prisoner before the rest were forced to flee.

Aww.. Monday

I found the following video on YouTube with the Quoted explanation.

We were unpacking the car from a canoe trip when this fawn stumbled across our front yard and into Maya’s arms. The fawn had a good sense about Maya and followed her every step. They were inseparable from the moment they met. Maya knew it needed its mother, who we believe was off eating and recuperating from the birthing, so she led it back to the woods until it finally hunkered down.
