Today has been a day for me to promote some excellent blogs that I follow. I posted them on this site and posted them on Facebook and Twitter. Most deal with history, although others deal with art, music, archeology, architecture, law, humor, and current events. They include American, French, and English bloggers.
We have also been taking care of Minnie as she makes her slow but now steady recovery. I expect it will take longer, but she is looking and acting better.
Chers amis, Je suis désolé de vous dire que nous ne sommes pas en Normandie… mais à la maison. Nous sommes bien et en sécurité, pas de problème avec …
Jacky nous écrit… Pierre Lagace is a French blogger I follow. I know enough French to read it pretty well, but if you don’t you can always use Google Translate or open in Chrome which provides a translation option. Most deals with military history, and he occasionally posts in English. His purpose is to remember the fallen.
If you like the obscure parts of Military History, and want to know more about little known aspects of the end of the Pacific War and after, I strongly recommend Greg Cox’s Pacific Paratrooper blog. He is consistently good in presenting the history, especially at the individual and unit level. If you are interested, his is a good blog to follow.
I highly recommend Jill’s blog which deals mostly with music, as well as some social and political commentary. But this song always reminds me of visiting San Francisco Bay as a kid and any time that I go home.

I welcome comments, even those which disagree with my positions and articles. I have done this for years, but recently I have been worn out by some people.
I have just a couple of rules for comments. First, be respectful of me and other commentators. If you are polite and respectful' even if I disagree with you your comment will be posted and I will respond accordingly.
That being said I will not allow people to hijack the comment section to push their religious or ideological views. Unless the comment deals with the meat of the article, don't expect me to allow you to preach, especially if you are a racist, anti-Semetic, or are a homophobe.
Nor will I allow spam comments. Most of those are automatically blocked by Wordpress but some do get through, and deal with them accordingly.
