computer - or rather my FTP - is having problems uploading items to the
internet. It will do it; it just requires eight times longer to
accomplish it. Something about too many files...
At nearly the same moment, my daughter's actual computer began experiencing REAL problems - such as its imminent demise. We are therefore splitting computer time on my PC until some other arrangement can be made.
Even without a crystal ball, I can foresee some serious delays in our future.
No, wait a minute, this is happening in real time. Sigh.

From My #2 Son, Brent Harty (Hillsboro HS, IL - '90) of LA - 04/16/15 and 04/18/15:
|Well, I'm not quite done,
but was happy with the near complete progress of the 1MEB Legacy print
that I've been so busy on the last 2 weeks.
All that is left to do is paint the current and historic Distinctive Unit Insignias (DUI) at the bottom of the page and any last minute touches up. I'll have it done by Monday for sure to take the digital copy and start to send it across the Brigade so folks can place their orders... I donated the 'artist fee' for the cause... And a chance to do something that I've always wanted to do... Military artwork! This shows my progress this past week, with it taking about 17 hours to get from the last stage alone.
After over 50 hours of work, here is the 1MEB Legacy Print complete. I also put the last three days progress to show the differences as well as close ups of the main part of the work. It is 22" X 28"... I hope the detail will translate well.
We are going to do an 11 x
14 Lumira matte finish photo print for $20.00 and a 24" x 30" print on
Enhanced Matte for $65..00... All profit for the print will be used to
fund a Memorial Rock Sculpture (that I also worked with the stone
working company to design) to be placed at Ft. Polk Warrior Memorial
WOWZERONI! That's amazing, Brent! What a great job you did! Thanks for sharing these!
From My Friend, Shea, of NC (soon to be TX) - 04/17/15 - "My Favorite Online Site":

|A Sunday School teacher was
discussing the Ten Commandments with her five and six year olds.
After explaining the commandment to "honor thy father and thy mother," she asked, "Is there a commandment that teaches us how to treat our brothers and sisters?"
Without missing a beat one little boy answered, "Thou shall not kill."

Once Upon a Time
From the 1962 Broadway Musical, All American
Music by Charles Strouse (b. 07 June 1928); Lyrics by Lee Adams (b. 14 Aug 1924)
Once upon a time
A girl with moonlight in her eyes
Put her hand in mine
And said she loved me so
But that was once upon a time
Very long ago
Once upon a hill
We sat beneath a willow tree
Counting all the stars
And waiting for the dawn
But that was once upon a time
Now the tree is gone
How the breeze ruffled through her hair
How we always laughed as though
Tomorrow wasn't there
We were young and didn't have a care
Where did it go?
Once upon a time
The world was sweeter than we knew
Everything was ours
How happy we were then
But somehow once upon a time
Never comes again
