This is one of those stories that will bring a tear to your eye.  Glad that this heirloom finally made it back to where it belongs.

Veteran’s day

No more fitting a story for this Veteran’s day.  What a great project.

and related, another important WWII USN ship is found.  The improvements in underwater technology clearly will lead to us at least knowing the final resting places of many WWI and WWII sailors.

Movie review: The Maltese Falcon (1941)

Reviewing this movie is ridiculous.  It is acknowledged to be one of the greatest films ever made.  And it is.  This is just one of the best films ever made.  Every shot, every piece of dialogue is just amazing.  It was John Huston’s first film as director and he obsessed over it.  It shows.  Perfect cast, perfect script, perfect direction and cinematography.  I have watched it 5 or 6 times and it is just amazing each and every time.  There isn’t anything that isn’t flat out amazing.  If you have never seen it, you should. One of the many things of note is that thought the film was shot in 1940, there is no hint that there is a war going on in Europe.

And I want this for my desk.

Ran across this and thought it was pretty funny. No tie in to modeling or the law or anything else, just a funny story.

First aid training

I’ve thought for quite a while that a program to train up large numbers of volunteers with first aid training to assist in natural disasters and mass casualty events would be a good idea.  Apparently there are programs like this one that are taking things even a step further.  I hope this program spreads.

Badass

Again making the point that there are so many WWII stories that aren’t widely known, here is another one. What brave women.
