Welcome to Silver and Shadow
This is a blog I will be using for topics other than food. Politics, religion, spirituality, humor, green living, anything that I want to talk about that doesn't fall under the food/cooking category.

As we are dealing with the start of "Snowpocalypse 2010", I hear a lot of people complaining about the mayor and how everything is his fault. I can't help but come up with a list of things that significantly impacted this storm, that the mayor had nothing to do with. They include:
*Not listening to the warnings a week in advance and putting snow tires on your car, and carrying chains in your trunk.
*Driving your car too fast in the snow.
*Hitting the breaks too quickly in the snow and not giving yourself enough space from the car in front of you.
*Leaving your car in the middle of the freeway.
*Insisting on driving to work when everybody in the local media is urging people to take the bus.I'm sure there are actually many more things that people are doing that aren't due to the mayor...

I never knew you, but I would have loved to. I wish you could have told me about your war days in the Pacific. I wish I could have heard your voice. I wish I could have felt you hug me. I miss having you in my life. It's not fair that you were taken before I had a chance to know you, but that's the way it is. Tomorrow is Veteran's Day, and I will be thinking of you. Thank you for the sacrifices you made for this country, your family, and me. Even though you returned alive, you did not return untouched by war. All who fight are changed, and yet you went anyway. Thank you and I love you.
