Is 2015 Really Almost Over? Can’t Believe it.

Yesterday, when I woke up, It was a brand new month in 2015. I can’t believe October is here already. To me, when October comes it means that the year is almost over. 3 Months to go until 2016. Where did this year go? It was an absolute busy year for me and so much more until December 31st. I already see Christmas merchandise in the stores, Halloween, Thanksgiving things. The only thing about these months until April is that it is the Fall, its cold, freezing and Winter that I absolutely despise.
What are your plans for Thanksgiving, Halloween and Christmas?
I am excited to go on my 13th trip to Cuba soon. I absolutely love Cuba a lot. I go all over the place. I don’t just go to one destination.
Was 2015 good to you? Mine was, and I ended up doing quite a bit of traveling to Los Angeles, California, Niagara Falls, Ottawa, and among many other places, but there were some unfortunate things that did happen in my year, but everything turned out well in the end. Well, lets see what the next 3 months of 2015 has in store for me.
I wish you all the best for the rest of 2015 and beyond.

Remembering The Veterans Of Remembrance Day – November 11

Today, I want to take this moment for remembrance day in Canada to remember the veterans we lost in the wars and in battle. Lest we forget. Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae had written these words of Flanders Fields.
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

By Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae

Canadian Forces Base (CFB) of Canada’s Armed Force Bases will be commemorating and honouring the veterans. When I am on Highway 401 East going toward Trenton and then coming back west to Toronto, I am sure you see the signs like Highway of Heros or Autoroute Des Heroes with a big poppy. The poppy symbolizes remembrance and Poppies were everywhere. Now the Highway of Heros symbolizes those who have died in battle and who come home to Canada, and officers and military, firefighters, police officers, all do a procession on the highway and I have seen it a few times when I went to Montreal and coming back. Today I want to take a moment to remember them all and I hope these wars stop, bring the troops back home where they belong and lets stop all the hatred in the world. The Army can be helpful in others ways. Not fighting. To Be trained for snow days, to be trained for offering good services to Canada and the world. We automatically think that Canadian Army or other Army of the world is all about fighting, but it shouldn’t be about fighting, they can do services such as helping the elderly, going to boy and girl scouts and teaching them things, and among things that do not involve killing, shooting. It has got to stop. So many people are dying and have died because of wars that are pointless and that shouldn’t be, but today we remember November 11, the eleventh day, eleventh month, the eleventh hour. Lets all stand together and stop present and future wars that are brewing.
God Rest our Veterans Souls.
