    Today, for the first time, I actually took a close look at a bell near the courthouse and discovered that it's the ship's bell from CVL-30. :soma:

    [​IMG]

    I've must've walked by it a thousand times or more, but never looked up to see the wording on it. Bells aren't exactly random around here (across the street from this one is a cathedral that's more than 200 years old with bells that ring all the time) so it wasn't something I really noticed.

    No idea why it's there. On the ground by it is a simple plaque from 1974, acknowledging the ship's service (and next to that, inexplicably, is a memorial plaque for submariners lost in WW2). San Jacinto was the carrier that President Bush flew from during his service, but in 1974 he wasn't particularly noteworthy. :chris:

    The Whirlwind waits.
    Lincolnshire, winter '43/'44. RAF Lancasters wait for the weather to clear so they can bomb the fuck out of Berlin.

    Came across this. Love the bow wave at full speed.
    Caption reads:
    USS Boston (CA-69) on a full power run on October 22, 1943. Official US Navy photo NH 80-G-283559, now in the collections of the National Archives.
    But someone said Boston didn't have aircraft, so it may be Baltimore.

    NICE! So do hydrangea bloom all summer or only for a short period? I see some here and there where I live but before I pull the trigger on getting any I want to see how long they stay in bloom. Any thoughts?

    Mostly about this time of year I think, at least in northern Virginia. Nice flowers and don't need a lot of attention. We just have to pull the vines off of them once in a while so they don't get choked out.

    is that English Ivy encroaching on your hydrangea? It so that's an invasive species and spreads almost as fast as kudzu.
