At eleven o’clock today, the nation will fall silent for two minutes, to honour those who fought in so many wars. 

It will be at 11 on 11.11.11.

This date and time won’t happen for another hundred years.  The heroes of last century’s wars will be long forgotten.  I’m sad but sure there will be many more to take their place.

Laurence Binyon said it best: 

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.

Joke 232

11 Nov

A man was walking on the beach one day and he found a bottle half buried in the sand. He decided to open it. Inside was a genie.  The genie said, “I will grant you three wishes.”

The man thought about his first wish and decided, “I would like one million dollars transferred to a Swiss bank account.”

POOF!  A bank statement appeared in his hand.

Next he wished for a red Ferrari.

POOF! There was the car in front of him.

He thought long and hard for his last wish: “I want to be irresistible to women.”

POOF! He turned into a box of chocolates.
