I hope it works Neil. I really hope someone in Washington is paying attention. You've stepped up to serve the country -- more than once -- and your family served with you, in many respects. In the end, however, where mankind fails to step up and do the right thing, God is ever vigilent and trustworthy to act. Keep up the writing.
Today I talked with one of the soldiers I served with during for the last several years. I told her about asking Congressman Joe Pitts to help me get the 11 months and 9 days of service I need to complete 20 years. He could...

It seems to undermine our military to have such an age limit. There are men and women in their 60s and 70s that are more fit, mentally, physically, and emotionally, and better trained/educated than most people in their 20s and 30s. It makes no more sense than companies who try to push out older workers. They seem to have no clue that they are knee-capping their own success. Someone needs to rethink that "Age in Grade" law and get it revamped or overturned.
Congressman Joe Pitts On May 3, I was honorably discharged from the Pennsylvania Army National Guard. I had 19 years and 21 days of service. At that moment became "Just Like Dad" in a way that my Dad would never have w...

Next comparison test should be MREs and civilian meals like Patriot Supply.

He wasn't too far off on England, however. Look at the great struggle they're in to overcome the strong socialist movement that has been digging in its heels since that time. America is now struggling against the same socialist mindset that seems to be imbedding itself in our universities. Why do you think Bernie had such a strong following among university students? Mr. Orwell's timing may have been off, but he seemed to be clued in to what the growing movements were of his time. I haven't read this book. Will have to give it a look. Thanks for sharing, Neil.
Last week on vacation I read "Why I Write," four essays by George Orwell. I read the book for the first essay, from which the book gets its title, to remind myself why anyone would want to write a book. Orwell says the four...

Thanks for sharing, Neil. This is a great comparison video and very interesting. Teenagers are very discerning, in most cases, about how things taste and don't usually hold back if they don't like something. They did a good job. Any plans to compare rations from other countries as well, i.e. British, Israeli, Australian, etc? Would make an interesting article series. Feeding troops while in the field is one of the biggest tasks militaries face, especially when they're on the move. These types of supplies must certainly make that task a bit easier. Great job.
Earlier this year, I ordered Russian Army field rations (Индивидуальный рацион питания/ИРП) from eBay. This video compares the Russian ration rations with US Army MREs. I compare the contents and have my kids compare the ta...

Very interesting insight Neil. Had not thought about this aspect of social media's impact. Saddened by the disconnect the technology encourages and facilitates when its original purpose was supposedly to increase social interaction and more shared knowledge.

Introduction

I am an avid writer, and reader of books both fiction and non.  I enjoy reading historical biographies, particularly, and I am fortunate to work in a field that allows me to help, in some small part, in preserving history for future generations. 

I enjoy traveling, both day trips and distant jaunts, and I enjoy talking with people.  My life can be very hectic at times, so opportunities for pursuing hobbies is limited. 

I am a Christian, trying every day to live life more abundantly in and obedient to Christ. 

Bragging rights
Published author of two nonfiction books and, to date, six works of fiction.

Usually one of my favorite restaurants here, but not on my favorite list today. Called at 10:30 am and placed order for delivery by 1:30. When my guest arrived for lunch but the order didn't, I called the local restaurant. The young man searched but found no order. The woman who took the order got on phone and apologized that order was lost. Offered a credit for future use, but I declined. Had to make quick change for lunch and go out and pick something else up and bring back. Didn't end up sitting down to lunch until after 2pm as result. After several bad experiences at local restaurants I think we will be staying at home. Prefer not to have a side of stress and frustration with meals.

I initially gave them two stars, but I have lowered it to one. This experience was a failure on a couple of levels. It started with their ordering system. I had never ordered through them online and their webpage offered a $5 off coupon code for a first-time online or carside-to-go order. I went through the process of ordering and got to checkout and the system refused to accept the code. Kept giving me "invalid code" message. I tried it both "pick up inside" and "curbside" but it wouldn't accept it. I placed the order for inside pickup and called the restaurant directly to let them the know the code would not apply. The very polite young man's response. "Well, so sorry. There's nothing we can do here to help with that. That has more to do with the website than with us here at the restaurant." So, we lost the $5 off coupon offered on the site. We won't be using the site again. It failed a sceond time when I tried to use their "contact us" form to send notice of the problem to Applebees Corp. After going through the lengthy process of filling out the form and typing a short description of the problem and hitting "submit" I got another error message that said the form couldn't be submitted. I tried it a second time and just got a bunch of lines of error messages. THEY NEED TO FIX THEIR ONLINE WEBPAGE AND TEST IT TO MAKE SURE IT ACTUALLY WORKS IF THEY WANT PEOPLE TO UTILIZE IT. Will be back to edit this review if the order isn't right when it gets here. EDIT: No lettuce or tomato on my burger, even though I did NOT opt out on those on the order site. There were four little 1/8" fragments of what looked like bacon. I didn't order bacon for it, because I don't like bacon on my burger If I had pieced those fragments back together they might have made a whole slice. We had two garden salads, green beans, and whipped sweet potatoes on one of the orders, but unfortunately no utensils to eat them with, nor any napkins to wipe our hands on had we decided to treat them like finger food. They did get the right dressings added to the order, so I guess that's something. There was no ketchup, mustard, or mayo packets included to add to my burger, nor were they offered at the time the order was picked up. It is a good thing we just decided to eat our Memorial Day lunch at home rather than at the park. Fortunately I had tomato and lettuce to add to my sandwich myself.

Fantastic food and ample portions are more than big enough to share. Good service and reasonably priced. Clean and casual environment. Relaxing atmosphere. Definitely worth dining at when you're in Clinton!

We had a great time here today. Very professional displays. The staff were knowledgeable and helpful. The 30 min movie about the history was superbly done and the theater area was clean and comfortable. We didn't have time for the auto tour but it is on our list for a return visit.

We enjoyed this tremendously. Food was delicious and affordable. The staff was very friendly and the attached Fresh Market was a nice addition. Hopefully they carry this chain further north in the state. The ice cream sundae was delicious and big enough to share.

My mother and her friend went to this show today and were totally impressed with the quality of the production,, the staff, and hospitable environment of the theater. They tell me they will always remember the show! Worth the price. She said there were many young children there that were totally captivated by the show. Definitely worth investing some of the travel budget on this event.
