    Default Memorial Day

    I caught this on NPR on the way to work this morning . It's pretty heavy but it sets a proper tone for this weekend . http://www.npr.org/2012/05/25/153599...belgiums-hills

    Nice, seal62.

    Earlier last week NPR had an article on the History of the call for lights out, "Taps". But they didn't tell us why it is called Taps. I wondered about that. Wikipedia time?

    From "Close the taps and send the troops back to camp". It used to signal inn keepers that it was time to close up shop so the troops can get some sleep.
