  1. There was a Molson Indy Race in Vancouver but I have not heard much about it for some years now. So I think they do not have it anymore. 3X3
  2. Hoi Bhoy! I am sometimes interested in Military Memorabilia and today, I was coming out of the Recycling Depot when I found this on the ground of the Parking Lot: So I did a bit of research into it and found that it is the Plague for the US Navy Nurse Corps: Once I found a Cap Badge that was like this: Turned out to be the Old Cap Badge for the Royal Canadian Postal Corps. They did the Military Mail until Canada Post took if over in the early 1970s when the Military was Unified. And here is a Letson Shooting Trophy which may have been won by a Past British Columbia Regimental Regimental Honorary Colonel Harry Letson: 3X3
  3. Awens to All: Today I went to put on the BVS Society Booth this morning. This year, the BVS brought a few Sri Lankan Buddhism Pictures. So along with their Displays and mine, this is what we put together: Here is the Display for the BVS Food Fundraising: And here is the Celtic Buddhism Display I the BVS allows me to put up: Here is me with an nice fellow Volunteer Janet in the Booth: Did a Walkabout and found this Rinpoche Society Booth that I found Pleasing: Their Mantra looked very similar in design as Celtic Buddhism which I liked. So I snapped a Picture of their Man tra that Pleased Me: We sat at the Booth giving away Free Tea, Sold Herbs and Promoted the BVS Community Garden. Had a Great Day enjoying Buddhism.

  4. Today, I got to do the First Harvest from my Strawberry Patch in the Herb Garden that I built at the Buddhist Temple Community Garden. Here is the Strawberry Patch and the Strawberries: And here is a close up of the Strawberries: Nothing Tastes Better than Fresh Organically Grown Strawberries! 3X3
  5. Found! I found an Online Archive of Life Magazine back issues at: https://books.google.ca/books?id=3UEEAAAAMBAJ&source=gbs_all_issues_r&cad=1 I figured it would have been published between Jan 41 and Dec 42. So I started reading through each copy starting at Jan 41. March 17th 1941 Edition, Page #35 - Picture Of The Week! Goes with the following Paragraph: Frederick Harrison of London is only 6 years old but the strange conditions of his life have made almost a man of him. Tiny speck in the sky drop things whose explosions fill all Freddie‘s World. He was not dismayed when a bomb recently blew his how house to bit. He found himself covered by bricks and rubble but somewhat protected by a wardrobe that had fallen across his bed. He found next that he could move and pulled away the debris that pinned down his sisters, Winifred, 3, and the baby, Joybells. First he got Winifred out and then she helped get the baby. Then they all three found their injured mother. For this he got the congratulations of his father, a sergeant in the Royal Artillery, and the name of hero. ----------------------------------------------------------- Doing the Math, he would be 83 Years Old now. 3X3
  6. That is a Good Theory. I Like It Actually! 3X3
  7. Awens to All: Was browsing YouTube and found an Episode of 'The Nature Of Things' made by our CBC. It is an update on how Modern Technology methods of Archaeology has brought about New Discoveries about the History of Stonehenge and other nearby Neolithic Monuments. It is rather good: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d5x2TrzqqTw&t=180s 3X3
  8. I have been pointed to the British National Archives and I have messaged them. It would be an interesting Story to find out whatever became of this Boy Hero. He would be in his Late 70s or early 80s by now. 3X3
  9. Greetings to All: When I was in my Teens, I had a Book called 'The Best Of Life' which had in it the most Iconic Pictures taken and published in Life Magazine. There was one Photo that made a Big Impression on me. It was a Picture Titled 'British Aplomb' and shows a Boy who Heroically dug his Sister out of their Bombed Out House during the WW2 Bombing Blitz of London. Unfortunately, I lost track of the Book I had and had always wanted to find out more Historical Information about the Picture. I had always wondered if the Boy went on to become a Fireman or something like that. But last week, while I was working at a New Job being a Cooperative Housing Property Maintenance Man, I was going through their Amenity Building Little Library and found a copy of the Book that I once had. Quickly, I went through it and refound the Photo that made such an impression on me in the late 1980s. Here it is: Does anyone know of the Story about this Photo? I am tempted to Email Life Magazine for further background information about it but I am asking you guys if you know of the Story behind this Boy and his Heroic Deed and whatever became of him. He is by now Retired and maybe Passed On by now. But I am wanting to know more about his Story. 3X3

  11. It is now 3 Weeks to Beltane. I have my 2019 3X3 Beltane Triad of Wisdom Poem ready to E-Publish. Is there any Plans to Celebrate Beltane on the IoM? 3X3
  12. Of course, the Curators of the House of Mannanin would have best knowledge on such things. 3X3
  13. The Vikings had their Paganistic Pantheon of Gods & Goddesses and paid Respects to the Changes of the Seasons just as the Celts did. But their Societies Worshiped Gods who embodied their Culture of Adventuring Out and Conquering others. 3X3
  14. The Ancient Norse had their Celtic Paganism of their own too. 3X3
  15. No - It was Leaf Erickson who succeeded in making the Trip across. 3X3
