Thanksgiving from an Airline Captain

First, let me wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving, whether you live in North America or not.  May you be blessed always and give thanks, not just for one day but always. Below is an email I received from my friend in Missouri and I just had to share it with all of you.  You…

Do You Think They Know?

So … while traveling around the Old Pueblo the other day, I happened to notice a pretty interesting cloud formation.  Sitting at the stoplight, the thought occurred to me that the clouds could indeed be cloud ships. Yeah, lots of people will think I’m crazy and I just might be, but I truly don’t believe…

Thank You, Mr. President

Any of us that are old enough to have lived when President Kennedy was murdered remember exactly where we were on that day.

Now it’s different.  I’ve learned some things I want to share with all…
