Another side to the Great War

Post about everything from carrying a handkerchief to manly skills (sharpening a pocket knife, etc.) to product reviews of items that may have slipped under our radar (e.g. - Grandpa's Pine Tar soap). No threads on anything "new" unless it harkens to old-fashioned sensibilities and ideals.

Thank you, Hov. I am very glad for having met Eugene Bullard.

May I introduce you to one of my personal heroes? Fr. Augustus Tolton -- the first Negro Catholic priest ordained from the United States. He comes from the area of Hannibal, MO, where I went to high school.

Have you guys seen the "They shall not Grow Old" film?
I'm old but I'm happy. (Most of the time.)

I wanted to, but I blinked and it was out of the local theaters before I could see.
A friend saw it and really enjoyed it---especially how it was made.
