In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved, and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
John McCrae

Two others worth reading on this day.

Oh, I have slipped the surly bonds of earth,
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
Sunward, I've climbed and joined the tumbling mirth
Of sun-split clouds-and done a hundred things
You have not dreamed of-wheeled and soared and swung
High in the sunlit silence. Hov'ring there,
I've chased the shouting wind along and flung
My eager craft through footless halls of air.
Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue
I've topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace,
Where never lark, or even eagle, flew;
And, while with silent, lifting mind I've trod
The high untrespassed sanctity of space,
Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.
---John Magee, Jr.

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 children play, the roses on the wall:
'Tis these that make a soldier great.
He's fighting for them all.

'Tis not the pomp and pride of kings that make a soldier brave;
'Tis not allegiance to the flag that over him may wave;
For soldiers never fight so well on land or on the foam
As when behind the cause they see the little place called home.
Endanger but that humble street whereon his children run,
You make a soldier of the man who never bore a gun.
What is it through the battle smoke the valiant soldier sees?

The little garden far away, the budding apple trees,
The little patch of ground back there, the children at their play,
Perhaps a tiny mound behind the simple church of gray.
The golden thread of courage isn't linked to castle dome
But to the spot, where'er it be the humblest spot called home.
And now the lilacs bud again and all is lovely there
And homesick soldiers far away know spring is in the air;
The tulips come to bloom again, the grass once more is green,
And every man can see the spot where all his joys have been.

He sees his children smile at him, he hears the bugle call,
And only death can stop him now he's fighting for them all.

Those are some cool poems - I was thinking about our Vets today - the young kids who are going out and doing their duty. I thought about what it was like for me and decided to change my icon on another place I hang out in.

so here's what I was doing about 31 years ago.

Lego heads have sure gotten complicated. I remember seeing my first non-"basic smiley" face and thinking it was the coolest thing ever. I think it was a guy with a mustache from one of the older Castle sets.

It looks like the abode of a Lego serial killer.

I've still got some Lego down in the basement from back when there were no faces (or movable arms or legs for that matter)

If you enjoyed Masatoshi Nagase in Mystery Train (The W at Amazon), you might want to check out the films where he plays Private Detective Maiku Hama, starting with The Most Terrible Time in My Life.

The Maiku Hama films are fantastic. I spent almost five years waiting for them to come out on DVD after I saw "The Most Terrible Time in My Life" in a theater.

If wikipedia is to be believed, it is from between 1958 and 1964. 1958 was when the Golden State Freeway was offically named, and in 1964 US Route 99 was renamed (parts became Interstate 5, and parts became California Highway 99.
