"Rest in peace, sweet Betty. My God, how bright heaven must be right now."
Kind of says it all I think.
RIP Betty White and thanks for the laughs.
All the best,

I think it is nowhere nearly as good as their first album but it definitely was not bad at all. In fact, it was good enough as a follow-up that - as long as they kept on going - they would have lots and lots ardent of followers. It was that inspiring - a truly new form of music - Heavy Metal!
After all these years, still music to my ears for sure!
All the best,

Most of the deaths occurred on one ship. On the USS Arizona, a b battleship, there were 1,177 fatalities (source).
It was a horrific and surprise attack by a vicious enemy, an enemy that later paid the price, for attacking freedom, in a manner as never seen or even imagined before when, on August 6,1945, an atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, Japan. Then on August 9, 1945, another was set off in the air over Nagasaki, Japan. Those two devastating bombs, it is estimated they killed anywhere from about 130,000 to 240,000 people (mostly civilians) finally brought the Japanese to surrender unconditionally (source).
While those bombs ended WWII, they also ushered a new age - the atomic age and later to nuclear age in which we still live with the threat of nuclear destruction hanging over our heads each and every day. If there truly is a God in Heaven, I pray God help us that we, or any nation, never again set(s) off another such bomb and pray that no further attacks like the one on 9/11 or the one on Pearl Harbor ever happen again.
Yet, we can be thankful to the brave men and women who died or were injured and of course to those who did not die nor were injured but who fought bravely during the attack at Pearl Harbor. We also should never forget those who answered the call, that went out after Pearl Harbor, to stand for the USA and battle our enemies until they were defeated.

Did you see the safety violations? In two photos they are pretty blatant and in one not so obvious. In the event you could not enlarge the photos to see what the safety violations were, allow me to circle them in the same shots below.
