Dinner Tonight #50

October 25, 2018

Tonight I made an old-fashioned British pie — corned beef, potatoes & onions.  Served with pea, carrots and a rich gravy, it was pretty darned good!

Remembering The Invasion of Grenada

October 25, 2018

On October 25, 1983, the United States invaded the tiny Caribbean nation of Grenada (“Operation Urgent Fury”).  The 1,500-strong Grenadian Army, along with 600 Cuban allies, were considered such a strategic threat to the Imperial Power that Ronnie Reagan sent in the Marines, lying through his teeth to his erstwhile ally Margaret Thatcher all the while.

Lest we forget:  opposition to the power will be crushed ruthlessly no matter how petty it makes the power look.
