11-11  We remember

Together we remember
They shall not grow old in our memories
We will remember and honour them forever


Dire Straits Brother in Arms

Everything you do connects you to the people places and things that matter


At the rising of the sun and at its going down
 We remember them.

At the blowing of the wind and in the chill of winter
 We remember them.

At the opening of the buds and in the rebirth of spring
 We remember them.

At the blueness of the skies and in the warmth of summer
 We remember them.

At the rustling of the leaves and in the beauty of autumn
 We remember them.

At the beginning of the year and when it ends
 We remember them.

As long as we live, they too will live, for they are now a part of us as
 We remember them.

When we are weary and in need of strength
 We remember them.

When we are lost and sick at heart
 We remember them.

When we have joy we crave to share
 We remember them.

When we have decisions that are difficult to make
 We remember them.

When we have achievements that are based on theirs
 We remember them.

As long as we live, they too will live, for they are now a part of us as
 We remember them.

When serenity is restored .. new perspectives open to us and difficulty can begin to seem like an invitation to growth. - John O'Donohue

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
From Laurence Binyon's poem For the Fallen, written in September 1914. 

“Why do we have to listen to our hearts?" the boy asked.
"Because, wherever your heart is, 
that is where you will find your treasure.” Paulo Coelho

Roasted Garlic Mushrooms  

16 even-sized open cup mushrooms, stalks cut level
3 tbsp corn or vegetable oil
1/4 c unsalted butter, softened
3 cloves garlic, chopped very finely
2 tbsp fresh thyme, chopped
1 1/2 tbsp lemon juice
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
1/4 c fresh breadcrumbs
Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/gas mark 6. Lightly fry the mushrooms, cap-side down, in hot oil for 20 seconds.
Arrange the mushrooms in a shallow roasting tin with the stalks facing upwards.
Mix together the butter, garlic, thyme, lemon juice and seasoning. Spoon a little garlic butter on to each mushroom, then lightly press the breadcrumbs on top. Either refrigerate for later use, or cook immediately in the oven for 10 minutes.
Our ultimate freedom is the right and power to decide how anybody or anything outside ourselves will  affect us.

‎You have to be the kind of person who can make the best out of a Tuesday. You know those people who live for the weekends? They’re wishing their life away. You have to find something worth living for or else you’ll look back and realize you’ve wasted your life away.
Drew Marvin, English Teacher

Let there be peace on earth

"Courage is almost a contradiction in terms. It means a strong desire to live taking the form of readiness to die." --G.K. Chesterton
