DO I HAVE A CASE?

Monday’s Collection of Information

In the iconic 1987 movie Wall Street, Gordon Gekko proclaimed that “The most valuable commodity I know of is information“. Today’s blog is a collection of information. Valuable? After this, you might feel like we are zigging and zagging. Some useful; some useless; and something sad.  Our Blog!

First, I have stumbled upon some amazing mustard. (I suspect you didn’t see this one coming!) I am putting it on everything. Obsessively!

Next is apparently how to keep pigeons off your porch. (In case pigeons are on your porch!) It’s this right here:

Yes, a balloon is the first line of defense! I guess pigeons are afraid of balloons with eyes?

Now, some serious discussion for the blog. Who was the youngest American serviceman killed in action? Honestly, this is terrible. The answer: Dan Bullock, at age 15.

When he was 14-years-old, he altered his birth certificate to show he was four years older. He wanted to become a pilot, police officer or a Marine. So he enlisted and graduated from Parris Island boot camp in 1968.

He arrived it Vietnam on May 18, and was assigned as a rifleman. On June 7, while making an ammunition run to resupply his unit, he was killed by a Vietnamese night attack.

His grave did not even have a marker until 2000. Today, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial finally recognizes him as the youngest soldier killed. And I must ashamedly admit that I did not know his story until recently.

I said that this blog has lots of information. I felt that after that story of Marine Dan Bullock, I didn’t want to end there. It’s too sad.

So, I post some lion wisdom as part of the continuum of the blog:

And finally, here is our pic o’ day.

I am thankful for Monday!
