Hey, what a wonderful picture! I'm sorry that your first two comments had to be Spam. Have you thought about turning on Word Verification so you don't get that anymore? Just a thought. :)

In Flanders Fields

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

-John McCrae

Lest we forget!

Scott & Julia-

That's awesome! Especially fitting since today (Nov 11) ended that awful awful war that Grampa went to fight and that McCrae wrote about.

Thanks!

Dear fellow blogger,

I perused your post with much interest as I was looking for ways to trade in 75
. But unfortunately your post did not exactly cover trading in 75
. Yet I have fount a website that allows you to trade in almost anything like 75
on interest free credit, and you can pay for your 75
whenever you want. Here is the link one more time: 75
