Flag from Battleship Texas flies again for D-Day
mysanantonio.com / Fri, 23 May 2014 04:32:59 UT
A cacophony of shouting men and the constant boom of exploding shells filled the air. In honor of the 70th anniversary of the June 6, 1944, invasion, the flag that was aloft will go on public display Friday for the first time since World War II in an exhibit at the Houston Museum of Natural Science thanks to a crewman who gifted the flag. The USS Texas' 17-by-9 foot battle flag was raised on its mast June 5, as 156,000 Allied soldiers prepared to cross the English Channel and face the Germans. The USS Texas, which already had fought in World War I, was tasked with drawing enemy fire so the troops could land, Smith said. The rounds came so fast and so furiously, the troops on the beach were relieved when they saw the USS Texas and its constant barrage, Ernest Hemingway described as a correspondent for Colliers magazine. For years, as Saul finished school, got married, raised two daughters and enjoyed a long career with the Coast Guard, the massive wool and linen flag with just 48 stars remained carefully folded in storage.

Black: Organic farmers need to wake up
amarillo.com / Sat, 22 Nov 2014 03:14:17 +0000

In the land of Nod a movement sprung up to build houses without the use of power tools. The advocates of organic construction (OC) supported the movement because it prohibited the recovery and use of the carbon coal and oil.

To be OC, any lumber used must be hand-hewn, and saws must be manually operated. Mule power is approved. Machine-made tools must be made by a blacksmith and made from stones, dug and formed by hand.
