Good Morning.

Ol' Boy Scout Troop 248 is heading out for some winter backpacking this morning. We're off to Lonesome Lake Hut up on the side of Cannon Mountain in Franconia Notch.

My Heart, today
Author: Raine    Date: 02/14/2019 14:03:03

This morning, my heart is with the students, family and loved ones from Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School.

As we all know, it was a year ago that 17 lives were stolen from their loved ones.

The Blackface in our Closets
Author: BobR    Date: 2019-02-13 13:00:00

The blackface saga in VA continues to spawn news reports and online discussions. It's an awful situation, but there is one upside - we (as a country) are finally having a discussion that was overdue decades ago. Regardless of one's intentions, the reality is that it hearkens back to a terrible period of our history, and for our fellow black human beings, it's a painful reminder of the horrors their ancestors endured, and the casual racism they continue to face daily.

It also has us all going back to our high school and/or college yearbooks (and photo albums) to see if our history is tainted. The answer - yes, we are all tainted. I looked at my high school yearbook and guess what? There was a blackface photo.

Ask a Vet

Good Morning.

Leaping right in this morning, one of the most difficult transitions a combat veteran can make is often simply returning to civilian life. In the years following WWII, millions of men simply took off their uniforms and returned to what they were doing before the war with nary a blink.

Be Smarter.
Author: Raine    Date: 02/11/2019 14:05:07

Good Morning and welcome to another Monday in The United States. We've officially entered Presidential campaign season. Ballotpedia is always a good source to see who is running, who not, who has dropped out and who is still considering throwing a hat into the ring. The list is long.

Growing pains

It's really hard to contemplate the bad things we are hearing coming out of Virginia when we have a white supremacist occupying the White House.

State of the Union: Screwed
Author: BobR    Date: 02/06/2019 14:17:10

Last night, pResident tRump finally gave his belated SOTU speech to a joint session of Congress. I will confess upfront that I did not have the stomach to watch it. I have skimmed through the full transcript, and it's about what I expected. Given that someone else wrote it for him, and he rarely went off-script, he came across as a more subdued and reasonable version of his acidic, acerbic, and bombastic personality.
