A Little Trivia - The Mass killing of Dogs and Cats At The beginning of WW2 in Britain.
In 1939 in Britain, due to the fear of lack of food for the general populous the National Air Raid Precautions Animals Committee (NARPAC) was formed. It drafted a notice - Advice to Animal Owners. This advise said "If at all possible, send or take your household animals into the country in advance of an emergency." It concluded: "If you cannot place them in the care of neighbours, it really is kindest to have them destroyed."
In one week, 750,000 pets were put down. The first bombing of London in September 1940 prompted more pet owners to rush to have their pets destroyed. Little memorial notices begin appearing in newspapers; "Happy memories of Iola, sweet faithful friend, given sleep September 4th 1939, to be saved suffering during the war. A short but happy life - 2 years, 12 weeks. Forgive us little pal,"

Vincent's Gift To Rachel
Palm Sunday - 2015
Yes Today is Palm Sunday. Christians are marking it by holding Palm fronds. Some fronds will be shaped into a cross. Supposedly 2000 years ago believers waved fronds at Jesus when he returned to Jerusalem.
One, of many things I have an interest in, is the business side of selling religion. It is a niche market but apparently a good one. Beyond the vacation bible School kits being sold, there is also the palm frond sales for palm Sunday. Palm fronds run about 3 to 5 dollars each, palm strips about 20 cents each, and palm crosses are about a dollar each (no doubt made by children in third world countries).
Some places selling palms fronds are http://churchwaresdirect.com/palms.html
as with anything there seems to be a discussion about eco-friendly gathering of palm fronds and just mass cutting everything in sight.
Obituary – March 25Captain Donald Alexander Malcolm Jr., 60, died Feb. 28, 2015, nestled in the bosom of his family, while smoking, drinking whiskey and telling lies. He died from complications resulting from being stubborn, refusing to go to the doctor, and raising hell for six decades. Stomach cancer also played a minor role in his demise.
Don cherished family above all else, and was a beloved husband, father and grandfather. He met his future wife, Maureen (Moe) Belisle Malcolm, after months at sea, crab fishing. He found her in his bed and decided to keep her. Their daughter Melissa was born “early” six months later. They decided to have a boy a couple years later, and ended up with another daughter, Megan. He taught his girls how to hold their liquor, filet a fish and change a tire. He took pride in his daughters, but his greatest joy in life was the birth of his grandson Marley, a child to whom he could impart all of his wisdom that his daughters ignored.
After spending his formative years in Kirkland, Wash. with a fishing pole in hand, Don decided his life’s calling was to yell at deckhands on commercial fishing boats in Alaska. As a strapping young man of 19, he moved to Dutch Harbor to fulfill this dream. Over the next 40 years, Don was a boat cook, mechanic, deckhand, captain and boat owner. Although Don worked nearly every fishery in the Pacific Northwest at one time or another, his main hunting ground was the Bering Sea. He cut his teeth crabbing; kept his family fed by longlining halibut and black cod; then retired as a salmon gillnetter in Southeast Alaska.
Don had a life-time love affair with Patsy Cline, Rainier beer, iceberg lettuce salads and the History Channel (which allowed him to call his wife and daughters everyday in order to relay the latest WWII facts he learned). He excelled at attempting home improvement projects, outsmarting rabbits, annoying the women in his life and reading every book he could get his hands on. He thought everyone could, and should, live on a strict diet of salmon, canned peas and rice pilaf, and took extreme pride in the fact that he had a freezer stocked full of wild game and seafood. His life goal was to beat his wife at Scrabble, and although he never succeeded, his dream lives on in the family he left behind.
Don is survived not only by his wife, daughters and grandson, but by his father, Donald Malcolm Sr; brothers Howard and Mike Malcolm; sisters Lisa Shumaker, Nicki White, Melinda Borg and Patsi Solano.
He also has many nieces, nephews, aunts and cousins who love him dearly, and deckhands who knew him. He will be having an extended family reunion with his mother, Winifred Thorton; foster parents Marvel and Dutch Roth, brothers Larry and Steve Malcolm, sister Doodie Cake, and other assorted family and friends who died too young

As everyone in town has noticed the Boulevard Beer/ Cheers convenience store has a name change to Corner Market.
You may remember it from this post I did in 2007 on the water plant http://delmardustpan.blogspot.com/2007/09/delmar-water-treatment-plant.html
We are currently using Well 2A which is 205 feet deep which puts it in the Manokin Aquifer. It can pump 1,000 GPM.
I see where Gordy's Pub ( GP of Seaford, LLC) has applied for a taproom and Sunday license. If anyone wants to object, and I don't know why you would since they have been there a while now, you can file your protest with the Alcoholic Beverage Control Commissioner.

They sell washer and dryers for $99 each with a guarantee.
They say they are pleased with being in Delmar and I am pleased a business in doing well in town.

A Tom Carper Message
Every year, members of Congress nominate young men and women for the opportunity to be appointed for acceptance into the Air Force Academy, the Merchant Marine Academy, the Military Academy and the Naval Academy. Students accepted into these programs are given a unique opportunity to obtain an excellent education, serve their country and gain valuable leadership skills that will guide them in their future.
Knowing the impact military service had on my life, I take this opportunity very seriously. As a former Naval Flight Officer and retired U.S. Navy Captain, I appreciate how the benefits of military and public service shape one's future. Although I didn’t have the honor of attending a service academy, I learned the value of combining an education with military service while I was in the ROTC program at The Ohio State University.
The application process to be one of my nominees for appointment to a U.S. Service Academy opens TODAY, March 15, 2015. The application deadline is October 15th, 2015.
I urge young Delawareans to consider this option and consider applying to multiple service academies. Interested students can access the online application by visiting my website here. For more information regarding the application process, contact Laura Wisler, my Kent County director, at (302)-674-3308 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
WW2 Soviet In Navy Uniform
Soviet partisan dressed in his navy uniform. It’s interesting because during WW2 lots of Soviet sailors fought on the land (most probably due to Germans destroying their ships in the beginning of the war) and they proudly worn their hat and uniform everywhere. Most of Soviet Navy uniforms were black, so when Germans first saw the sailors charging them, they called them “Black Death
