Brooklyn Buddy, Vivia, asked me if I had seen the current AARP Magazine as Tom Selleck was on the cover....No, I do not belong, but did research and found it..

She asked because she knew I am a HUGE Blue Bloods fan, due to Tom being the object of my puppy love of famous handsome movie stars....  starting when he was on Magnum, P.I.

This came from La Crescenta pal, Erika... too funny!
I love it when a complicated situation can be explained in such simple terms!
*Democrats don't understand THE DEBT CEILING
*Republicans don't understand THE DEBT CEILING
*Liberals don't understand THE DEBT CEILING
*SO, allow me to explain...
Let's say you come home and find there has been a sewer backup in your neighborhood. Your home has sewage all the way to your ceiling.  
What do you think you should do --
1. raise the ceiling, or
2. pump out the crap?

November 11th.

Veterans's Day honors all members of the Armed Forces who who served this country valiantly, and in a very big way. They served and fought to protect us, to keep our country safe, and to preserve our way of life. Veterans gave their time, and risked their lives for you and me. In some cases, they made the ultimate sacrifice.

This holiday originally was called Armistice Day and was first celebrated in 1921. In 1954, President Eisenhower changed it to Veteran's Day, in honor of those who served and died from all wars.

On November 11 at 11:11, 1921 the U.S. France and England each buried an unknown soldier in honor of those who died in World War I. This began the annual Armistice Day holiday. The time and day was picked because fighting ceased in WWI in 1918 on November 11 at 11:11. In keeping with this tradition, work stops on this day and time each year for a moment of silence.
