"Quid est veritas? ("What is truth.") Pontius Pilate, John 18:38

"Lying makes a problem part of the future; truth makes a problem part of the past."   Michael McLean

We are all in very tough times. BUT, please listen to the Vera Lynn WWII song, We'll Meet Again" linked below before going elsewhere. It also has some WWII images I've never seen. --- Here it is:

We'll meet again, God willing.  Respectfully yours, Bill
