Originally titled The Voyage of the Mayflower, this made-for-TV historical drama was, not surprisingly, first telecast as a Thanksgiving special. In the tradition of the 1952 theatrical feature Plymouth Adventure, the film meticulously recount[s] the journey of 103 Pilgrim „separatists” from their religiously restrictive English homeland to the shores of the New World. The dramatic crux of the film [is] manifested in the conflict between mercenary, untrustworthy Mayflower captain Christopher Jones (Anthony Hopkins) and idealistic but tough Pilgrim leader William Brewster (Richard Crenna). Also incorporated in the narrative are the intertwining relationships between Miles and Rose Standish (David Dukes, Trish Van Devere), John Alden (Michael Beck), and Priscilla Mullens (Jenny Agutter).

The film is recommended by NEA and me for my  virtually romanian friends. My little gift  ( thx to U2B ) on this day , for more understanding why we celebrate this day .


Azi , dupa cele cateva ore de voluntariat, la un shelter, o mana de ajutor nu strica si nu ia blazonul nimanui , voi continua munca ,tot voluntara, acasa, la aragazul care nu suporta doua funduri de muiere in acelas timp , sa termin preparatele pentru maine , la masa de Thanksgiving . Urmeaza pix…..

Iar eu aduc multumire acestei zile ca sunt (inca) aici cu voi si pot sa impart gandurile mele rascolite de vant .

Multumesc celor care au fost cu noi la bine si la  rau . Care ne-au sustinut moral, cand totul se vedea pierdut .

Multumesc acestei tari  , chiar in momentele  ei de  zbucium   politic , uman , neinteleasa de multi , hulita or invidiata de altii .

Multumesc  oamenilor de oricare origine care au inteles ca aici si doar aici in America poti sa  fii  liber , sa crezi  cu adevarat in aceasta libertate, sa fii ce  ti-ai dorit . Sa fii OM.

Multumesc   cadrelor medicale americane si doctorilor americani  de toate  natiile care, au avut  grija de viata  celui de langa mine sa nu se stinga in sase luni , cum se credea  acum 5 ani .

Multumesc  la toate zambetele si amabilitatile care-mi incruciseaza ziua, chiar de-i innorata.

Multumesc copiilor care, s-au realizat asa cum au vista cand erau mici .

Da, s-a putut . Si  soldat si  cadru medical . Unul repara ce strica celalalt 😉

Multumesc  Andrei ! pentru tot ce ai realizat , cu risc  si teama in  sufletul celor  dragi tie . Especially Thx, for Olivia Grace 😉 and My favourite daughter in law , Amy. xox.

Multumesc Twodoor 🙂 ca ai rabdare  cu noi. Dar daca mai bati in usa ca gestapoul , or STASI, or KGB ul….o sa-ti intorc *surprisa*  in ziua ta libera  la ora 4 am .( tinnitus nu inseamna ca-s surda. I do have high expectations )

Si cum se zice : *ce-i mai bun  la urma*or *pour la bonne bouche*: Multumesc Omului de langa mine ca ne suportatm la bine si la greu de… ….ani ( am uitat ) ,  ca imbatranim inca  zambind la greu , si nu ne scarbim chiar de cele cateva kg  acumulate de-a lungul bataliei  sassy .

May God Bless all of you !

Happy Thanksgiving !

In Flanders Fields
John McCrae, 1915.
In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields….  ………RESPECT AND HONOR !!!unknown tomb

Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is a day of remembrance for those who have died in our nation’s service. There are many stories as to its actual beginnings, with over two dozen cities and towns laying claim to being the birthplace of Memorial Day. There is also evidence that organized women’s groups in the South were decorating graves before the end of the Civil War: a hymn published in 1867, “Kneel Where Our Loves are Sleeping” by Nella L. Sweet carried the dedication “To The Ladies of the South who are Decorating the Graves of the Confederate Dead” (Source: Duke University’s Historic American Sheet Music, 1850-1920). While Waterloo N.Y. was officially declared the birthplace of Memorial Day by President Lyndon Johnson in May 1966, it’s difficult to prove conclusively the origins of the day. It is more likely that it had many separate beginnings; each of those towns and every planned or spontaneous gathering of people to honor the war dead in the 1860’s tapped into the general human need to honor our dead, each contributed honorably to the growing movement that culminated in Gen Logan giving his official proclamation in 1868. It is not important who was the very first, what is important is that Memorial Day was established. Memorial Day is not about division. It is about reconciliation; it is about coming together to  HONOR THOSE WHO GAVE THEIR ALL .
