  1. Burns "The Vietnam War"

    I felt the same way and it goes right back to the nation not learning. That still happens today, only difference is that now it ends up on facebook, twitter and every message board on the internet, where people think it's the gospel according to Paul.
  2. Burns "The Vietnam War"

    I saw that, I believe it was LBJ talking to the editor of the Washington Post. He was asking why he was getting all the blame and Ho Chi Minh was never mentioned etc.?
  3. Burns "The Vietnam War"

    I have been watching, very good series in my opinion. Between this series and a documentary on McCarthyism I also watched, I've come to the opinion that we as a nation have learned absolutely nothing in the last 60-70 years! Thanks for the link I believed that should be required reading as well.
  4. 2017 Pittsburgh Steelers Season Schedule

    It has a lot to do with Trump's remarks and use of the "phrase" SOB!
  5. 2017 Pittsburgh Steelers Season Schedule

    I see, on the NFL Network, that the entire Steeler team will remain in the locker room for the National Anthem at today's game!
  6. Black Out Night This Friday!

    Way back in the '60's when I was in school the Brockway band would march from the high school, down main street, to the football field at all home games. The home field band would present the colors and play the national anthem pre-game. At half-time both the visiting and home band would perform a show.
  7. That is correct, if memory serves me, they went airborne at the end of the runway and crashed into some trees. My father took me to see the trees, sort of a life lesson learned. Our farm was not far from the crash site. It was a big topic of conversation in Beechwoods as well, although we didn't have a pool hall or gas station. I remember the gas station in Falls Creek, the pot bellied stove and the old timers sitting around it!
  8. Yes it did, I believe it would have been late 50's-early 60's, I know I was not very old.
  9. Sandy Township Water/Sewage Bill

    It's my opinion that the higher prices for auto insurance are caused by two things. Winter road conditions and whitetail deer.
  10. I attended the Beechwoods school for the first 6 years of my education. Lunch there was brown bag for everyone, no cafeteria. I was raised on a dairy farm and drank raw milk always. In the seventh grade I started at the Brockway jr/sr high school, with a very good cafeteria. Tried pasteurized whole milk for the first time and spit out, tasted terrible to me. The rest of my lunches at the cafeteria were with chocolate milk.
  11. Boarding up your home for a hurricane

    During the 35 years I lived in Florida I always kept my "boarding up" plywood in the garage. My windows had hurricane awnings but the house had two sets of sliding glass doors that led to the pool. I had to use plywood on them.
  12. Hey Grandpa, What's For Supper?

    Yes it is, but I think it will warm up later Sorry, couldn't resist
  13. The Park

    It is designed to allow children with disabilities to play ball.
  14. Game of Thrones

    What makes you think that any member of the "hunting party" will be turned into a white walker?
