    Been to Jamaica, tour bus driver was selling pot to all the riders that wanted it.
    2 channel: Anthem 225 Integrated amp; Parasound Ztuner; TechnicsTT SL1350; Vincent PHO-8 phono pre; Marantz CD6005 spinner; Polk SDA2BTL's; LAT International speaker cables, ZU Mission IC's and power cables all into a PS Audio Dectet Power center.

    Other; M10 series II, M7C's, Hafler XL600 amp, RB-980BX, Parasound HCA-1500 amp , P5 preamp, all in storage. All vintage Polk have had crossover rebuilds and tweeter upgrades.

    The best way to predict the future is to invent it.

    It is imperative that we recognize that an opinion is not a fact.

    Imagine making politics your entire personality.

    Georgia WWII veteran, now 98, to be honored by French government

    ce5mocjlnxfk.png
    Asked what message he has for fellow Americans, Graziano kept it simple: “Fight for their country. Do what has to be done.”

    From the AJC today:
    Louis Graziano remembers the grim-faced German troops arriving in the little red schoolhouse that day in 1945 in Reims, France. A U.S. Army master sergeant, his duties including helping rebuild and maintain parts of the city, including that building, where the Germans showed up to surrender at the end of World War II.
    He remembers feeling glad the war was over and that he would be able to return home after serving nearly three years abroad.
    “They came in straight-faced. They didn’t have much to smile about,” he recalled about the Germans. “I had the room set up where they were all going to sit. It didn’t take them no time to sign the papers.”
    This Friday, the French government will present Graziano with the Legion of Honor, France’s highest decoration. It is given to French citizens and foreign nationals who have served the country and its ideals. Gens. Dwight D. Eisenhower and Douglas MacArthur are among its best-known American recipients. Scores of Graziano’s family and friends are traveling to see him receive the honor at a 1 p.m.
    He is the son of Sicilian immigrants who arrived at Ellis Island. While his mother, Filipa, raised him and his four older siblings, his father, Pietro, worked as a railroad watchman and as a brick mason. After his sister opened a beauty salon, Graziano followed in her footsteps, becoming a hairstylist.
    He was drafted in 1943 and boarded a ship for Scotland before arriving by train in England. After landing in France as part of the Allied invasion, he pushed all the way to Reims, where he was put in charge of plumbing, communication, electrical and construction work.
    Graziano met his future wife, Bobbie, there. He remembers first seeing her pitching in a softball game. An Alabama native, she was also serving in the U.S. military. “She was a staff sergeant, and I was a master sergeant, so I pulled my rank on her,” he joked. When the war was over, they settled in the Augusta area. They were married for 62 years before she passed away in 2007.
    Graziano, who survived a battle with COVID-19 in September, is also often asked about the secret to his longevity. He points to a habit he picked up from his Sicilian parents. “I cook everything with olive oil,” he said. Graziano still cuts hair in the same brick salon he built with his bare hands in the Augusta GA area. He works near the front of his shop, where he can look out the window and see the world.
    His children include a son who served in Vietnam and who has received three Purple Hearts. Fittingly, that son, Louis “Butch” C. Graziano II, is scheduled to speak at his ceremony Friday.
    Copies of his book, “A Patriot’s Memoirs of World War II,” sit on the counter next to his salon chair. Graziano didn’t talk about the war for years, his daughters said, and decided to write his memoir after Bobbie died.
    “I think he wanted people to realize what they went through for our freedom,” said his daughter, Moira Johnson.
    “He is having a hard time thinking of himself as a hero and a famous person,” she added, “because that is not Dad.” Another daughter, Kim Evans, agreed: “He says the heroes are the ones who died.”

    This image is of Lt. Rick Rescorla, an Army infantry officer who was photographed as he fixed his bayonet in the Ia Drang Valley in 1965. The image graced the cover of the first edition of the book, We Were Soldiers Once and Young, written by Lt. Gen. Hal Moore and Joe Galloway.
    Rescorla would earn a Silver Star and Purple Heart and other awards, surviving the famously fierce battle. During battles, he was known for singing battle hymns which helped calm those around him. He went on to serve in the Army Reserve until his retirement as a colonel in the 1990s.
    On Sept. 11, 2001, Rescorla was a director of security in the south tower of the World Trade Center. After the aircraft hit, Rescorla went up into the towers to help people evacuate. Evacuees who were helped by Rescorla said that through the smoke they could hear a man singing so they followed the sound which led them to Rescorla. He directed them to safety, down and out of the building.
    He is credited with saving more than 2,700 lives. He was last seen climbing higher into the towers with his security team to help those that were trapped in the higher floors who still needed help. His body was never found.
