    Warm Regards To Our Australian And New Zealand Friends This ANZAC Day

    (Although our "Down Under" contingent has shrunk somewhat over the years, this message goes out to those that remain, and all others in spirit. )

    Best wishes and regard to all on this day honoring the sacrifices made on the 25th of April, 1915. Deepest regards for the efforts of all Australians and New Zealanders during WWI, to the few remaining survivors and of course to the men, women and children that celebrate the Day's significance.

    Be well, ladies and gentlemen.



    For more information regarding ANZAC Day, here's a link that aptly explains things: http://www.awm.gov.au/commemoration/..._tradition.htm

    Here, here! Chefcraig has enlignthened me as to the significance of this day and I've taken the opportunity to talk with my Aussie collegues about it over the past year and have come to appreciate the importance this day has with our "Down Under" kindred. Cheers and salutations.

    Yup, I'm a somewhat of dork. I inadvertently posted this around MARCH 25th, instead of the proper date in APRIL.

    Huge thanks to Goo for having the good sense to close it then, as well as the kindness to reopen it now that it's time proper. It's indeed appreciated.

    All the best to our friends, brothers and sisters in Australia and New Zealand.

    Be well.

    Lest we forget.
    “And what we have at our fingertips is arguably one of the greatest high tenor voices ever – that was in Michael Anthony. In our tiny little corner of the universe, that voice is as identifiable as the high voice in Earth, Wind & Fire, as identifiable as the high voice in the Beach Boys. Van Halen is an indelicate house blend of both – that’s intentionally. So I would always look forward to that reunion.” - David Lee Roth

    Thanks for the kind thoughts. I'm about to jet off to Melbourne for the annual Collingwood/Essendon anzac day game. Should be about 96000 people there. Big day

    Lest we forget.
