ATT: CupCake,

Sit up straight and pay very close attention.

The other day we were chatting, and you mentioned that you are a military buff. The site I was referring to is Australian Diggers

For those who are not aware, America & Australia have strong & close military bonds. This fact is very well known throughout SE Asia, particularly WRT to the conflicts in those arenas last century.

Good luck moving house, CC ....

Cheers
Wocca

Thanks W. I can never read enough on the military or military history. (Moving sucks! From this day forward, I will not accumulate any more stuff!!!)

This is the perfect time for you to get rid of all that stuff you once said..."I may need this someday...".

There's lots of good pictures on that site as well. If you dig deep enough, who knows who you might find? (I'll have dig out some old pix when I'm back in Oz myself)

As for accumulating stuff, have you considered creating any webpages/blogs of your own? This could be a great way to immortalize your thoughts for your children and so on ........

I try to find out/learn/absorb as much as I can about anything military:)
I just don't find much need for 'stuff'anymore...and trying to move it and divide it up is terrible!!

When I first attened college..I took an english class that was geared towards journalism. I interviewed my maternal grandfather..7 hours of audio tape..which I typed out. I had copies made and gave them out to members of my family. I did the same thing last year with my mother and her siblings. I asked them about 50 questions each..but each one of the went off on different topics. I typed up what everyone had, combined them and made copies for everyone.It was our own little mini family history. They couldn't get over how they remembered alot of the same incidents sooooo differently. A few months ago, my mum and I went out to my grandfather's house and stayed the weekend. I brought my laptop and scanner and scanned all 2500 of his photographs. I burned them on to CD's and sent them to my aunts, uncles and cousins (42 in all on that side;)) ...I wish I could created web pages/blogs or something like that..but I honestly don't know how to do anything but 'point and click'.

Hi lovelee

If you go to the first post in this thread, and click where it says "Australian Diggers". Then,wait for another page to open.It should all become clear.

You could even get something to eat while you are waiting ...
