Dave!It's Pearl Harbor Day!

Last year I made my second trip to the USS Arizona Memorial. It's about as beautiful a tribute to those who lost their lives as you can imagine...

Thanks to all of you who gave so much.

And thanks to Jester for having me as a guest on his show tonight. Here's links to the things that came up...

Good show!

    I found this one of the most amazing memorials I have ever seen. I keep trying to talk my husband (who was a young child in WWII) to go there with me and he really resists.

    Having visited there in March of this year, I know how incredible that memorial is.

    The thing that impressed me the most was how people were told to be quiet and keep conversations to a minimum, out of respect.

    And the show was great last night, although I had to login as Guest 14 and Guest 17 when Talk Shoe was an ugly bastard (it crashed often under Safari)

    That is beautiful!
    Damn – can’t believe I missed the show! Wah.

  4. Beautiful pictures. Isn’t it a moving experience to be out there on the water?

  5. Christopher says:

    My wife and I went to the memorial and we were to meet my mother and spread some of my grandfather’s ashes over where the Tennessee was moored (he was a Pearl Harbor survivor). My mother couldn’t come, but we went anyway.

    While the memorial was what I expected, I was most perturbed by the large throngs of Japanese students who spent their time on the Memorial being loud and goofing off, texting with their phones, calling out to each other, etc.

    I did not care for the disrespect one bit.
