  1. Spitfires Transporting Beer in WWII!

    One of the lesser known stories from WWII and it appears to be true!

    Edit: I should make it clear that I did not write the following text. It was sent to me in an email from a friend. An internet search revealed lots of sites carrying this story!

    The underbelly of history. A lot of stories like this buried with the men who fulfilled the missions... In the lighter moments of WWII, the Spitfire was used in an unorthodox role: bringing beer kegs to the men in Normandy. ...

  2. Three Day Chemo Session: A Walk-Through

    Many of you are probably aware that I am presently (still) undergoing chemotherapy. I made a blog entry quite a while ago, detailing how the cancer was found (pure luck) and the following surgery. You can find it here: A Medical Message that may Save Your Life!
    That was back in February 2012.

  4. Upcoming Windows 8.1 - an Update

    This update is based on recent Windows 8.1 (“Blue”) information provided by Microsoft and is an add-on to my blog entry of 14th May, 2013, Windows 8: My Experiences.

    When Microsoft recently provided more information regarding the upcoming Windows 8.1, one of their highlights was the return of the Start button – well, sort of! There will, indeed, be a Start button but all it will do is take you to the Start screen! However, you will be able to configure that screen any way you want ...
  5. "A Soldier Died Today"

    This poem came from the same friend who gave us "Thank God for Old Farts"! I just seems appropriate for this Memorial Day!

    He was getting old and paunchy
    And his hair was falling fast,
    And he sat around the Legion,
    Telling stories of the past.
    Of a war that he once fought in
    And the deeds that he had done,
    In his exploits with his buddies;
    They were heroes, every one.
