His diary describes how he later escaped the deadly Long March in 1945 by fleeing into a forest and hiding. He died in 1999 aged 81. Born in 1917 to a German father and Irish mother, Flying Officer Zillessen spent his early life in Bradford, West Yorkshire, working in the family textile business until the war broke out.

  2. I first tried on Youtube, since several people here can't see the FB stuff I post. Then I tried FB, searched Barney and Festus argue.

  4. Geee...thanks. I'll take a stab at it tomorrow after church.

  7. That is a pretty common thing - not going to local landmarks. I've had people come for visits and are amazed that I don't go, or haven't gone, to some of the local, or at least nearby, landmarks or points of historic interest.
  8. By the way, I didn't just take the photograph and leave the carts there. Since I needed a cart anyway, I took the short one for myself, and dragged the other one to the cart rack by the door.
  9. DANG! One heck of a message there. An interesting man of great vision.
  10. Around here they usually get belligerent and very foul mouthed. Then get in their Prius with all the political stickers, give the one finger salute, and zoom off.
  11. Did some mid-morning shopping (07:30), got to the store and saw: a couple of *#^&$**(# lazy, self-centered morons had left their carts in one of the few handicap spaces. The red starts show the handicap spots. The red arrow points to the spot where the carts were left. Three spots to the left of where they were left is a cart corral. Next to the two handicap spots towards the north (top) is another. Also by the trees across the lane.
  12. In CA that would likely be considered a "tuck" and be a felony to possess.

  15. Wait. This was posted here before? If so, I apologize for the duplicate.
  16. That's a helluva thing to get woken up for. Gonna take a while to replace everything. Including his job, as that shop will be down for a while. Good luck to him and his boss.
