    Ken Burns usually does good, loved his Baseball documentary, Lewis and Clark doc...I'm really curious just how much our 'guvment' lied to us.

        It was in this setting that Decatur stood up and stated,Commodore Stephen Decatur uttered the phrase in 1816 as a toast during a dinner held here in Norfolk. After sealing the final victory over the Barbary states in late 1815.
        "Our country-In her intercourse with foreign nations may she always be in the right, and always successful, right or wrong."

        In this context, Decatur's toast is not a call for undying, blind patriotic devotion to one's country as the expression is often used in modern political discourse. It is rather a prayer for guidance, wisdom, and temperance in foreign relations."

        ...............................................

        Little have we learned since 1815...............but soldiers have always fought for one another. God, Country and Mom's Apple Pie never enters into the fray when you're counting on your buddies. Maybe that's why all is left aside when it's all over and we go back to whatever and try to lead a normal life as long as we can. Feck Uncle Sam was foremost in our minds and still is a bit I guess. Depends how one was able to handle it all and move on.

        I'll know who is lying or was lying as I sit back and watch.

          My opinion so far...............Ken Burns can kiss my arse!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Maybe what he has said so far is true but that's no reason to make us, who fought there, our country's fools!!!!!!!!!!! Right now he's no better that those arseholes who met us as we returned home....IMO!!!

          Stick to baseball Ken Burns, as you stated, Vietnam was not our father's war. We don't need to be reminded why we have kept silent for the past 50 years. You're just bringing up what we don't need to be reminded of. You're opening up old wounds is all you're doing.

          Hey Mitch!!! Can you find an "Asshole" emoji someplace? I could use it here..............

            I thought I knew it all too but I didn't know shite but now I know more than I ever thought I did. The deceit, lies, promises, cover ups. At no time did my parents write and tell me actually what was happening here and no way Stars & Stripes said anything and for all these years I thought the big stink about Fonda being in the North was sitting in the seat of a ack ack gun but it was way more than that. In her own recorded words, "those POWs are war criminals and should be executed". My deep feelings are turning in many directions now, was I that naïve? Have I been that blind all these years? I believe I was.

            Tonight was the final episode and it contained a nice tribute. I believed from all that was shown, it can be realized now, we who served came away with more honor than our government did who abandoned so many in the end after so many promises.

              I missed the boat with this Early Ford Story.......
              by Rob Patterson
              Our Model T came to us when my Father passed away and my Mother asked me to find a home for his car collection. At that stage the T looked pretty miserable as can be seen in the photo below. Sandy and I had gathered all the parts we could find so we could make the car look as complete as possible for photos for possible buyers.
              But when I did find a buyer, Mum couldn't sell it to him, so if...

              Antifreeze Info
              by Apple Green Wheels Rule
              Does anti-freeze really help a Ford Flathead Four run cooler in the Summer? I found from reading posts, seems this is as controversial as which oil?

              Heads up your dizzy may be frozen

              Or not.
              This does not apply to a stock dizzy.
              Any aftermarket dizzy with built in centrifugal advance, tho, beware

              We just broke in a newly overhauled motor for another marque of car, and had some difficulty we are not accustomed to. We seemed to have difficulty getting the timing anywhere near correct.

              Without going into a lot of detail we finally realized that...

              Electric Cars 1870's -- Prior to Gas Engines
              by H. L. Chauvin
              A few years ago one of my family members died and we were going through our family estate colonial historical documents in our ancient land grant estate house.

              We found a later 1905 dated post card written to my grandfather from his Godchild who was studying to become Priest at the Marist Seminary in Maryland.

              He described how the night before, his seminary student friend...
