Monday Musings - November 11, 2013

1. It is Remembrance Day throughout much of Europe. The 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month during 1918 marked the end of hostilities during WW1.

2. It is Veterans Day in the US. Kiss a Veteran!

3. The typhoon in Asia represents another opportunity for Americans to care for our brothers and sisters around the world who are facing devastation and destruction.

4. Here's one for the nightmares: Horrific flesh eating platypus once stalked Australia

5. The elections are over for this year and already starting for next year. We don't even get time off for Christmas.

6. What happened to Thanksgiving? The stores are already converted to Christmas. I admit, I am putting up Christmas lights today, but only because I have a day off and the weather is supposed to be nice. OK, I do it every Veterans Day to get it out of the way. 

7. I am disturbed by how many Maryland school districts do not celebrate Veterans Day. I tried to get it on the calendar for next year, but it was just too hard to overcome the inertia.
