Today’s photo is of a cake I baked for a family party this weekend. Because it’s so very cold and snowy here right now I decided to add a little bit of springtime to the cake by using greens in the decorations.

I’m a little late today, the moon tonight.

Today’s Monday Photo is also a past photo, a snowy photo from a past snowy day.

Monday Photos

I’ll be posting a photo every Monday in 2019. Today is the first. It may be a new photo or one I’ve taken before. Today is a rainy, gray, cold, blustery day so I’ll post a photo from last summer’s vacation to Florida when the weather was better and the sun was out.

A Date Which Will Live in Infamy

Early on a beautiful Sunday morning 77 years ago, the world changed.

At 7:55 a.m local. December 7, 1941 the attack begins.

Pearl Harbor Attack

Pearl Harbor Attack

The Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor to remove what it saw as a threat to the empire’s southern expansion. The Pearl Harbor attack hurt us badly, but it also hardened our resolve and brought us fully into WWII.

Snopes has some photos that were purported to be found in an old Brownie camera years after the attack. The story was untrue, but the photos are archival and genuine.

The U.S. Navy has a Pearl Harbor site with more photos.

Chris at A Large Regular has linked to this National Geographic Pearl Harbor site in the past. It has a multimedia timeline, survivor stories, kid’s section, and more.

Instant Pot Max

You can now CAN in the newest Instant Pot model. It will maintain 15 psi. Yay! Elder Son and his GF will be gifted with a hand-me-down older model that still works perfectly well and I’ll be able to can safely.
