This is the 500th post on this blog.  This doesn’t count the posts on the previous versions.  For the 500th post, I’ll note that the National Enquirer is a block site behind the Great Chinese Firewall.   I have no idea why.

While McDonalds in China is just like McDonalds in the States in most respects, there is one important difference. Here in Guangzhou, the Spicy McChicken sandwich is about 1000% spicier than in the U.S. Be warned.

I have been in China and access to WordPress behind the Great Firewall has been spotty.   More on that later.  For now I have access, so I am going to try and get some posts up.

UPDATE:  It appears that the top item in the photo is a Peaked cap badge and the lower item is a Luftwaffe Civilian Employee badge.

It turns out my father had two cousins who fought in WWII.  (More on that as I learn more.)  They sent back to my Uncle  items they picked up during the war.  My Unlce has given these items to me.  I am trying to learn more about what they are.  Here is a photo of the first piece.

For no good reason, here is a Stargazer lily from my front yard.

how often this happens.  Equipment like this should be checked and double checked every day, if we are going to use it as the basis of depriving someone of their liberty.

Here is another place they will be looking.  This has always been the law, but it looks like they are expanding the scope and enforcement.
