Memorial Day 2016 — Pacific Paratrooper

The willingness of America’s veterans to sacrifice for our country has earned them our lasting gratitude–Jeff Miller

Memorial Day is a special Holiday that is too often overlooked. Take a moment and read this poem, then reflect on the sacrifices of America’s finest. A Crow’s View

The following is rebloged from Pacific Paratrooper:

The Things That Make a Soldier Great The things that make a soldier great and send him out to die, To face the flaming cannon’s mouth, nor ever question why, Are lilacs by a little porch, the row of tulips red, The peonies and pansies, too, the old petunia bed, The grass plot where his […]

Bob Sinclair, A True Pioneer

If the Wright brothers hadn’t put their lives on the line, we would not be flying around the world these days. So we need pioneers~Felix Baumgartner

Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 9.20.46 PMIt’s been a year since a true skydiving pioneer passed away. He was a man who pushed the boundaries of the sport, yet remained obscure to the general public.

His innovation of the “buddy system” skydiving method, creation of the 35mm helmet-mounted camera and skydiving videography helped to revolutionize the sport. He probably single-handedly introduced skydiving to millions of people.

In the early 1960s, Mr. Sinclair’s worked on scores of television shows, commercials, and motion pictures, along with taking the reigning king of late-night TV, Johnny Carson, on a skydive in 1968.

It would be remiss not to mark his passing without sharing a few blogs and articles about this remarkable man.

Below are links to some of the best written memories of Mr. Sinclair.

The e-Economy Claims RadioShack

Technological progress has merely provided us with more efficient means for going backwards.–Aldous Huxley

The impending bankruptcy of RadioShack is yet another example of “brick and mortar” businesses falling prey to the power of the e-Economy.

For those of us old enough to remember when RadioShack was the only source of quality electronic goods, this bankruptcy and impending closure is a sad moment. Although we may not grieve for the loss of RadioShack that deeply, we do get a sick pang from the titillating nostalgic flashbacks of once racing to RadioShack to buy the latest piece of equipment; knowing that we are seeing our childhood fade into oblivion.

Below is a link from Wired, aptly titled “Dear RadioShack, This Is Why We Adored You.” Overall the piece is well written and speaks poignantly about RadioShack’s presence in people’s lives. A great aspect of this article is its eloquent recitals from people recounting their favorite memory of shopping at the former electronics giant.
