Remembrance Day December 7, 1941

In my family today is remembered. I had a grandfather that survived Pearl Harbor when his friends and fellow sailors did not. 😦

Poster created by artist Allen Saalburg (June 25, 1899 – July 25, 1987) for the Office of War Information in January 1942. One of the first propaganda posters to be issued after the start of the war, it was commonly seen in factories and military bases around the United States. As the war progressed, instead of “Remember December 7th!” the slogan “Remember Pearl Harbor!” became more common in American propaganda. The quote is from President Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address. Allen Saalburg was born in Rochelle, Illinois. His father was a newspaper cartoonist and printer. Saalburg studied painting at Pratt Institute, and with William Sloan at the Art Students League. Saalburg, like many other artists, headed a project of the Works Progress Administration (WPA) during the 1930s in New York City, designing murals for Central Park’s Zoo, Arsenal, and other buildings. During the 1930s, he also designed magazine covers, theater and movie sets, and murals for the 1939-40 New York World’s Fair. After moving to Pennsylvania in the 1940s, he painted commercial murals and did silkscreens on paper and glass. When the war began, many of the WPA artists were tapped to create propaganda through painting and photography.

I don’t know how many times, I’ve informed people at work, NOT to sneak up on me, NOT to put their hands on me, and for the love of your deity, NOT TO ATTEMPT TO SCARE ME! I am NOT a fan of pranks! Call me crazy but after surviving domestic violence where I was beaten on a daily basis, yeah, fuck you! I don’t like it, AT ALL!

I am a disabled Veteran, a survivor of Domestic Violence and Rape! I don’t fucking play around with my safety! The keyword here is VETERAN! I’ve been trained to HURT people! And I do! Not my fault if you don’t listen to the rules!!!

Thank you!

While some are celebrating the start of summer and having BBQs with friends and family.

Please don’t forget those that gave of themselves so that you can have that bbq; not everyone’s family and friends made it home!

Thank you!!

word of warning


1) So I caught two ppl yesterday posting as friends on facebook and attempting to do who knows what. I emailed my friends and the scammers (?) got reported and taken down.

2) Then for those that use Indiana Credit Union specifically the Marion, Indiana Branch. You might want to rethink that!! Within the past month, there have been ppl that have been closing and transferring to other banks. WHY? because of multiple overdrafts that have been happening in the past three months. I smell a bad egg in their location. And yes, I’m transferring very, very soon!!! One of the tellers the other day called me and I quote, “A fucking stupid idiot!” When I asked to be transferred to her supervisor, she hung up on me. When I called back in and said hello, she hung up on me. I attempted to call the branch in Muncie, and they apologized but that they were busy.  So really it’s this one branch that is being obnoxious, rude and I think sneaky about something…. six ppl that are transferring their accounts in a week period, can you smell it?


and woohoo TGIF!! is it quitting time, yet? LOL 😛


11/11/15 Poppy



The red poppy many of us pin to our coats in November was originally created to help us remember those who have fought in war.


The Red Poppy pin

What it means: We wear a red poppy over any other flower because it grows wild in many fields in northern France and Belgium. This is where some of the deadliest battles of World War One took place and many men died. Poppies are tough flowers, and can grow anywhere, but are also delicate. It is thought they are a fitting emblem to remember those who died.

How to wear it: Many say on the left, symbolising that you keep those who died close to your heart. It’s also where military medals are worn. Others say men should wear it on the left and women on the right, like you would a badge or brooch. There are also many people who say that the leaf should point to 11 o’clock. The Royal British Legion told Newsbeat: “There is no right or wrong way to wear a poppy. It is a matter of personal choice whether an individual chooses to wear a poppy and also how they choose to wear it. The best way to wear a poppy is to wear it with pride.”

Gladys Osmond

Gladys Osmond, who wrote thousands of letters to soldiers, mourned
A Newfoundland grandmother, who hand wrote “hundreds of thousands” of letters to troops overseas, has passed away at the age of 91
By Nick Logan Global News, January 16, 2015 6:56 pm
Gladys Osmond, who became known as “Dear Gladys,” founded the Granny Brigade to “bring valuable and tangible moral support to the men and women in uniform” serving overseas in the Canadian Forces, the Dept. of National Defence (DND) said in a statement on Friday.
According to DND, Osmond passed away on Wednesday.
“I was deeply saddened to learn of Ms. Gladys Osmond’s passing this week in Springdale, Newfoundland,” Chief of Defence Staff Gen. Tom Lawson said in the statement. “She was a dear and true friend of the Canadian Armed Forces.”
Global News spoke with Osmond in 2011, when she said she composed “more than a thousand letters every month,” not to mention countless emails.
“Just because I’m available to do something and I want to make something useful of myself,” Osmond told Global News reporter Ross Lord at the time. “I’ve got time on my hands.”
Osmond began writing to troops in 1983.
She wrote whatever was on her mind, from the weather to what’s happening in Canada. She said she felt like the troops she wrote to were “like [her] children.”
In 2006 she received the Canadian Forces Medallion for Distinguished Service for her efforts.
Osmond, who also wrote a book about her years of corresponding with Canadian soldiers, told Global News she had hoped to continue writing her messages until she reached the age of 100.
She will be laid to rest in her hometown of Springdale, where she was born on Aug. 12, 1923, at the Salvation Army Citadel.
