Everyday could be a day of remembrance.  I think this day is worth mentioning.  306 U.S. Navy crew members and passengers lost their lives unrelated to a war.  I take my hat off to them.  Anyone who fights for or defends this country that we call home in time of war or peace deserves the highest ...

On this date, March 3rd, 1791, the first United States Mint was established.  The Mint is responsible for making all the coins for the government since that time.  I know there is, or has been one in Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco.  Nate Rowe www.NateRowe.com                             ...

On this date, March 2nd 1933, was the premiere of the movie King Kong.  There have been several remakes of the movie.  Have you ever noticed that in some movies we remember the character name of a lead role, and in others we remember the actor/actress name?  The female lead in that movie, the blo...

I was so jealous of some Active Rain members... Now I finally got mine!  I hate to admit that I was jealous, but I have to be honest and say that I was.  I was reading about it in so many blogs.  I was seeing picture after picture about it also.  I was just dying for it to happen to me.  "Just le...
